LONDON, Nov. 6 Colonel E. D. Swln
ton, of the intelligence department of
the British general staff. In a recital
of events on the front in France, dated
November 1, says the fighting of the
preceding five days has been of the
most desperate character, and that the
German troops have won the respect
of the allies by their bravery.
"Whether it be due to patriotism or
to the fear induced by iron discipline,"
he says, "the fact remains that they
steadily press forward to what in many
cases must obviously be certain death,

our nearest enemies were the English.

"The results of the inundation to the

by our aviators, who have seen num

CANAL WORKERS GO HOME
Government to Pay for Transporta

NEW TORK, Nov. 6. The rapidly
approaching completion of the Panama
Canal and the consequent reduction of
the force of employes has caused
Colonel Goethals to repatriate numbers
of these men thus thrown out of em
ployment. Notices have been posted
that the Panama Canal Zone Govern
ment will furnish free transportation
to limited numbers of West Indian for

date about 3400 repatriation passes have
While the Government's obligation to
return laborers to their home com
mittees was originally limited to those
brought to the canal work under con
tract. It has been extended to include
laborers who migrated to the isthmus
on their own responsibility, but who
could show a period of service equal to
that stipulated in the contracts.
Now, principally as a police measure
for the prevention of vagrancy, free
transportation Is offered to practically

GERMAN LINER SAFE
Kronprinzessin Cecilie Voyages
to Boston Harbor.
CAPTAIN FRANKLY AFRAID
Two United States Destroyers Act as
Convoys and Scouts and Slost of
Trip Is Made Well Within
BOSTON, Nov. 6. Under protection
of two torpedo-boat destroyers of the
United States Navy, the North German
Lloyd liner Kronprinzessin Cecilie
steamed Into this port late today, after
13 hours' run from Bar Harbor, Me.
The transfer of the shiD. which has
been interned at the Maine port for
three months as a result of the war,
was accomplished without unusual in
cident. Her captain, frankly concerned
over the possibility of molestation by
a hostile ship, paced the bridge during
the entire voyage, but his fears proved
Captain Much Relieved.
"I am a much relieved man." he said
when he had brought the vessel to
anchor In President Roads,'between
other German steamers which also are
confined here because of the war.
Most of the voyage was made within
the three-mile limit, but on several
stretches the big liner was more than
ten miles off shore. The destroyer
Terry was close alongside throughout,
while the destroyer Lamson held to a
course a bo tit,, ten miles out, on the
watch for the appearance of any pos
sible element of danger to the Cecilie.
Aboard the steamer Lieutenant Kil
patrick. U. S. N., assisted Captain
Polack in the navigation of the vessel
and supervised the operation of the
steamer's wireless apparatus, which
was unsealed for the first time in
Hearing; of Suit Postponed.
Almost at the time that the United
States Marshal for Maine turned the
custody of the vessel over to Deputy
Morse, of Massachusetts, an agreement
was arranged In the Federal Court
here postponing a hearing on the
principal suit against the steamship
company until November 20. It had
been set for today.
The suit was brought by the
Guaranty Trust Company, of New Xork.

from the failure of the Kronprinzessin

signment of $11,000,000 of gold.
SUBMARINES TO BE BUILT
(Continued From First Page.)
of the - seagoing type and the usual
number seven or eight small subma
rines for coast and harbor defense.
While the submarines have attracted
much attention, the naval strategists,
with whom Secretary Daniels is con
ferring in the preparation of his an
nual report, do not believe there should
be any change In the plans set forth
by the general board several years ago
in the programme of two battleships
a year and a proportionate number of
auxiliaries and submarines.
The United States already has more
submarines than Germany and Japan
and Mr. Daniels has publicly declared
that the general board still believed In
the battleship unit as the necessary line
along which the American Navy should
advance to keep peace with the other
fleets of the world. It is conceded
among naxral men. however, that Con
gress, with the importance of the sub
marine impressed on the world, will
discuss the advisability of using the
appropriation ordinarily made for a
single battleship for the building of
28 new submarines.
Many Submarines May Be Built.
By sacrificing one battleshio the
American Navy could be at one stroke
alongside England and France In sub
marine strength. Some naval officers
point to the long coast lines and nu
merous harbors of the United States aa

One of the chief recommendation th
Navy will make to Congress will be
an Increase in personnel. It Is esti
mated that 18,000 more men than are
I now provided for by; acts of Congress
will be required to man the present
fleet, including ships under construc
tion. More torpedoes also are certain
to be asked for.
In this connection the Army also will
make an appeal for more ammunition.
The shortage in shells and other mu
nitions have been pictured to Congress
for many years without much success,
but there is every indication that not
only ammunition but more field artil
lery and 16-inch i guns for coast de
fenses will be pressed for with renewed
vigor by the War Department.
Greater Army Also Considered.
What Secretary Garrison, however,
will seek to obtain from Congress :s
a settlement of the much-debated prob
lem of an adequate Regular Army,
with the progressive development of a
policy analagous to that formulated by
the general board for the Navy a dec
ade ago, when the programme of two
battleships a year was adopted.
It is understood that he is prepared
to reiterate, in greater detail and with
more emphasis, this view, expressed In
his last report:
"For some years the Army war col

officers generally throughout the serv

MILLERS PROTEST AGAINST ACTION
Insistence on Consignment to Govern

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. A delegation
representing the Millers' National Fed
eration, headed by President Mennel,
of Toledo, protested to the State De
partment today that The Netherlands
government had refused to permit the
shipment' of flour into Holland except
when consigned to the government it
self. The millers told Acting Secretary
Lansing and Solicitor Johnson this de
cree would break down their flour
trade; that the Dutch government was
selling the flour directly to the con
sumer and that blUs of lading of goods
consigned to the government were not
negotiable. As a result, .they said, the
movement of some 600,000 sacks of
flour across the Atlantic was being
held up. They urged that should other
neutral nations adopt an attitude sim
ilar to that of Holland, utter demoral
ization of the : American flour trade
with those countries would result.
Acting Secretary Lansing asked his
visitors to submit their complaint in

could for them. It was pointed out in

ITALY TO STAY NEUTRAL
FORMATION OF NEW CABINET AN
Ministry Now Believed More Repre

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. Formation
of the new Italian Cabinet, news of
which officially reached the embassy
here today, probably will mean the con
tinuation of Italy's policy of strict neu
trality, according to opinions expressed
today at the embassy.
"The appointment of Baron Sidney
Sonnino, as Minister for Foreign Af
fairs," said an Italian official, "does
not mean a change of policy, but with
a Cabinet representing more broadly
the various elements of the country, the
Government's policy will be a more
truly national expression of Italy's in
terests." Diplomatists of the entente powers
expressed confidence In the unbiased
action of the new Minister for Foreign
Affairs. It is generally believed Italy,
as previously indicated by the Italian
Ambassador here, will remain aloof
from the European conflict unless her
national Interests are vitally threat

Calais and' the neighboring towns and
villages lat the retreat of the Ger
mans, which, he declares, amounts to
nothing less than a rout. He says:
"The German right is' smashed like
a fallen wine glass. Guns, stores,
rifles and even the wounded were
abandoned in the' rush from this fatal
battlefield. The chance of the Ger
mans was well on the wane when the
flooding of their positions came as a
climax of the disaster.
"There is now left no more than a
remnant of the German force which
met its fate at the Yser. Thirty thou
sand Germans, say the Belgians, have
beera put out of the ficht on this line.
Not & single gun remains on this side
of the river, and the unburied dead, the

memory of all the trains of wounded
that left the firing line ir recent days,
