One of the committees which was out today, that was headed by William Walton, could not get around to report at noon and this re port will be carried over until tomorrow morning, and another committee, that of which Superintendent Steiner, of the insane asylum is chairman, could not work today but reported two member ships by telephone, nevertheless. To the committe of which George F. Rodgers is tho chairman, is due the credit for securing the greatest num ber of memberships ou the second day's campaign with a total of 22; C. H. Ham ilton's committee was second with 15; P. W. Kyre 's committee nosed into third place but the baro margin of one-half membership, reporting a total of 14 1-2. while tho two committees headed by F. (1. Dookebueh and William Gahlsdorf, respectively, wero good fourths with 14 memberships each. While the figure of 800 has boon set as the goal to be reached in the mem bership campaign, tho work-of tiie com mittees will by no means, atop at that, as this number merely represents the least number required tojearry out the work outlined by the "eximmoreiul club for the ensuing year, and all secured above that number adds to the effi ciency of the work of the club and docs uot increaso the overhead expense.

The state de partment today ', received a dispatch from Consul ticneral Skinner, in Lon don, stating that in a wireless message to him, I'aptain Green of the American steamer Nebraskan, reported that the explosion which damaged the ship off Fatstnet came without warning and he saw no vessel in the vicinitv. Skinner reported that Captain Green's fessaga stated that the explosion occurred at dusk. The explosion was a terrific one, he said, bursting the hatches, throwing the hatch beam, the cargo derrick, and twisted iron into the air and filling the forward hold completely with wa ter. (Ity John Kdwin Xevin. Washington, May 27. "We had no warning aud saw nothing." This assertion from the report of ( nptain Green, of the steamer Nebrnsk an, in his report tu Consul General Skinner, in London, is regarded an the most significant statement contained in the latest information regarding the osion which damaged the Ameri can ship. It disclosed the uncertainty which promises to make the incident a mys tery that mav be bevoud solution. If the Nebraskan was torpedmd by a (oiiiiii n sniiinnrine, the attack was an act of war. Officials admitted this today alter examining precedents. i lie i luted Mutes Has addressed a harp note to Germany, protesting against her submarine activities anil warning the kaiser that we "could not be expected to do less than use all our powers to prutec.

And the administration of ticials are hopeful, despite the renurts ot the tu it inn admiralty, that tho Am erican vessel struck a mine. At the state department it was said that Ambassador Gerard had not vet advised Secretary Hryan when the re ply to I'rosiden Wilson's note protest ing ngaiast the sinking of the- Iusi tania and the general submarine war fare, might he expected.
