tailed description of a naval battle
off Granada, Rritisli West Indies, is
given in u letter received here to
day from an eye witness, who asserts .
that in his opinion the German cruis
er Karlsruhe took part and wa?
The letter was dated Granada, De
cember 2, and the writer asserts that
after tlie battle u life buoy came
ashore marked "S. M. S. Karlsruhe",
1 together with wreckage and barrels
of foodstuffs, lie further writes that,
fishermen had brought the news
that they Ifad seen dead bodies float-
I ing in the vicinity of the battle, nuiu- •
| hors of candles marked "Kaiser
Light," boots witli feet in then),
helmets, aud other wreckage.
The letter .was made public by the
1 Montreal Gazette und was received
by a member of the Gazette staff
1 from one or his friends at Grciiada.
The letter says:
"While at my house on a ridge
overlooking the sea north of Gren
ada I witnessed a naval engagement,
which was undoubtedly carried on
between more tliau two warships.
The action lasted, as far as 1 ob
served, from 7 o'clock p. .m to 11 p.
m. As the darkuess increased U was
’ quite apparent when broadsides o.
1 irojectlles exploded within seconds
of each other on either side, within a
range of four to six miles. I did not
1 hear the explosion of the shells, as
the fight was too far away. Nobody
in Rt. Patrick's appeared to have no
ticed what had happened. Whether
the government knew of the engage
ment or not, they certainly censored
all news as regards it
"Six days afterward I was con
firmed iu my opinion by the fact that
Sauteur fishermen, fishing in the
C’arriclon channel, brought in news
that they bad found dead bodies
floating in the water, together with
numberless candles, marked "Kuiser
liglU" (a sample of which I send
you us a Christmas card): also boots
with feet iu them, helmets, pieces of
wreckage, etc.
"On my portion of an island called
Isle of Rhnmlrfe a life buoy eanu
ashore marked "S. M. S?. Karlsruhe",
and besides wreckage and burrcls of
foodstuffs. I am the lucky possessor
of un officer's sword, which came
'ashore wrapped up carefully in oil- ’
"All this confirms my conclusion
that not only did an engagement oc
cur but that the derailed Karlshure
has been sank."
The Karlsruhe last was deiinitcly
beard from on October 26, when she
captured the Igimport and Holt liner
Vandyke. The Vandyke was the sev
enteenth vessel that bad been caught
by the German cruiser. No vessels
also, so far as known, have been cap
tured by the Karlsruhe since October
26. The British admiralty has made
no announcement concerning the re
ported sinking of the Karlsruhe.
Heretofore the admiralty lius been
prompt to annouuee any disaster to
German warships. •
