LOUIS FIRST STEAMSHIP TO RUN GAUNTLET OF WAR ZONE German Admiralty Made Flans to De stroy American Steamer; Mines Strewn In Path of Rig Liner. . New York, April 9. Running safely through the dangers of the German blockade of Great Britain and without sighting a periscope, either on the "out ward .or homeward journey, the Amer ican mail and passenger liner St. Louis, arriving at her home dock to day. The St. Louis was the first American passenger boat to be armed and travel through the danger zone around the British Isles since Ger-' many's declaration of January 31 and she was well armed for the trip. But her guns were used on no German target. " The homeward voyage was stormy. A hundred miles off the coast of Ire land a gale threatened the destruction of the lifeboats which had been partly lowered and it became necessary to lie to for two hours while they were made secure. This was ,n anxious time -as the stop was made directly in the nor may path of the German submarines returning to their home base.

There was no pilot boat at hand and the, Ameri can liner was compelled to steam out side the bar. where it was known A j German submarine had been working the night before, until driven away by pu ut UVaLS. During this time a neutral steamer which had been in the harbor for about two weeks, had attempted to go to sea. She was caught dropping mines inside the bar, eighty of them eing gtrewn about It, it was reported, PaUol boats picked up or destroyed all but two of these, The St. Louis crossed the bar and went up the narrow channel about 10 o'clock in the morning. About : an hour later, the British steamer Keivin- head crossed tho bar, struck one of the mines and sank. .The St' Louis could not have missed the mine by more than twenty feet How she ves- capea aestrucuon was a mystery to the British officers and the amazed Americans were congratulated when they reached their dock. It was the report proved the Liver pool docks, that "the vessel caught strewing mines was a Swedish boat. This was not confirmed by the British. Nor is the fate of the officers of the guilty ship known. Those thlng3 are not given out or even talked about by England's sailors. But the decision in their cases was probably not long delayed. . V It-was the expressed belief of the British that the big guns aboard the' St. Louis held no terrors of the Ger man, submarines. The fortune of'war was on the side of the Americans.

It is said that the plant was set up and is manned by Germor- arid that Mt is of sufficient "trength to commun- icate direct with Berlin, The wireless plants in Mexico, it is asserted, are not strong enough to communicate with Germany, but are efficient so faras the .receipt and de livery of messages to and from Salva dor is concernen.
