HONOLULU. T. H., March 25. The
American submarine F-4, which was
submerged at 9:16 today two miles oil
Honolulu harbor, had not reappeared
at nightfall and grave fears were' -prettied
for its safety.
The F-4 carries a crew of 23 men and
la commanded by Lieutenant Alfred i
Ede. Most of the 25 men are married
and have families.
The three other submarines of th
'K' group stationed here, the naval
tug Navajo and launches were scour
ing; the ocean for miles about the har
bor entrance tonight in search of the
Naval officials said they were hope
ful that no serious mishap had befallen
tho F-4, but they admitted that the
circumstances of the craft's prolonged
disappearance gave rise to much appre
hension. Bursting of Tanks Feared.
Later tonight it was reported that the
F-4 had Been located, lying at a depth
of 120 fathoms. Attempts to bring the
vessel to tho surface with grappling
hooks had failed. No signal bells had
been heard from the submerged, craft
and this fact led to fears that the sub
marine's tanks had burst, suffocating
the crew with sulphuric acid fumes.
The little flotilla of submarines was
engaged this morning in target prac
tice. It was not regarded as unusual
that the F-l should remain under
water for an hour or more in the
course of maneuvers, but when noon
came and the vessel remained sub
merged anxiety begat to be felt. This
increased as the afternoon wore on,
and the other submarines of the flotilla
began a systematic search for the F-4.
The naval station was notified and
other vessels were sent out to aid.
Cre-rr Might lire Week.
It was pointed out that a subma
rine's bell has a wide range and could
be heard readily if signals were given.
Itear-Adinlral Charle3 B. T. Moore,
commandant of the Honolulu station,
said the men on the F-4 would be In
no danger of suffocation ordinarily for
at least 24 hours and that If the ves
sel's air apparatus remained in good
order the crew might live a week sub
merged. He said, however, that the
F-4 lacked food supplies.

LONDON. March 23. The British
Admiralty said . tonight that they
thought the German submarine U-29,
which recently sank four British and
one French steamer in the English
Channel and damaged three other ves
sels, had been sunk with all hands.
The text of the official statement fol
"The Admiralty have good reasons
to believe that the German submarine
U-29 has been sunk with all hands.
The German submarine U-29 displaced
800 tons and was one of the largest
and fastest of the German undersea
The U-29 made a record raid two
weeks ago off the Scllly Islands and
in the Channel, sinking four- British
steamers and one French steamer and
damaging three other vessels.
The submarine was chased by patrol
boats, but proved too elusive for them,
and when steamers tried to ram or
escape her they found that the sub
marine was a much faster boat than
her sister craft.
The German commander gave the
crews of most of the steamers time to
leave their vessels and in some cases
towed them, in lifeboats to passing
steamers in which the seamen were
taken to port.

Admiralty has good reason to
marine U-29 has been sunk with all
This news, published In London late
last night, following as it did reports
that tho attack on tho Dardanelles had
been resumed, and the Russians had
Hon important victories over th
Austrians in Bukowina, and at Uxsok
Pass, in tho Carpathians, gave the pfeo
pie of tho allied countries renewed
'The Admiralty gave no details of
how or where the U-29 was sunk, but
the report that she was disposed of
wus received in shipping circles with a
sigh of relief. -
It was this vessel which just a fort
night ago torpedoed six steamers in
Bristol Channel and off the Scilly
Islands within two days. Her com
mander, who spoke English perfectly
and treated the crews of the torpedoed
merchantmen with great consideration,
told one of the merchant captains who
was taken aboard the submarine that
he was the commander, of the sub
marine which torpedoed the British
cruisers Aboukir, Cressy and Hogue.
If this were true, he was the man who
was looked on as Germany's most dar
ing submarine navigator.
This makes tiitj sixth German sub
marine so far that the British Admiral.
ty has reported 'sunk, five of them at
least by British warships, sinco the
outbreak of the war and in only one
case has the British report been de
nied by the Germans. Besides these, a
French warship recently sank a sub
marine pff the French coast and three
British merchant captains have put In
plaims for the rewards offered for mer
chantmen ramming German under
water craft. One o these claims, that
of the captain of the steamer Thordls,
has been allowed by the Admiralty,
and the reward has been paid.
News of a Russian victory and the
renewal of the attack on the Darda
nelles lacks official confirmation, but
comes from sources unusually well In
formed. Russian victories are an
nounced In private telegrams received
from Bucharest by way of Rome. Theso
say that the Russians have won a
great victory on the Austrian extreme
right in Bukowina .nd that with
strong, new forces they have driven the
Austrians back in Ussok Pass of the
It is thought that the Russians, by
bringing up new forces, may have suc
ceeded in turning the Austrian right
and in reaching the Sereth River, thus
getting behind the Austrian army op
erating in a vicinity of Czernowit.
Big events at Uzsok Pass were ex
pected, as both Russian and Austrian
official reports speak of heavy fighting
here, and with the troops released by
the fall of Przemypl the Russians mlsht
be able to dispatch strong relnforc
ments quickly to this point.
The Russians also have resumed the
offensive in tho region ot the Plllca

WASHINGTON. March 15. Full con
fidence In the great body of calm peo
ple of the Nation who serve as "stabil
izers" when the excitable tines try to
"rock the boat" In these days whs
voiced tonight by President Wilson In
an address before the Baltimore con
ference of the Methodist Eplsioijal
Church Soulh, In annual session here.
The President appealed to the Na
tion for support In administering hi
office, saying: "If I can speak for you,
1 am powerful: if I cannot, I am weak. '
Ho said it was Impossible for a pi-o-rle
to he impartial "when a quarrel la
none of Ihelia." Referring to the dun.
Ker to nifnsloiisrirs In some fcrr-lArt
lands, of which he said ho had thought
uiurh of lutr, lie addod:
"Wars will never have any ending
until men ct-asc to hate one another,
cease to be jealous of one another uu!
get the feeling of reality In the brother,
hood of mankind, which Is the only
bond that can make us think justly of
one another and act righteously bcfoie
The President said in part: -
"I have the feeling as 1 look upon you
that I have had in many other church
conferences, that I am looking In th
fares of men and women who are not
interested In the temporary thliig-. hut
are interested In the per.nunrnt tlilncs,
who Klve very llitlu thought. I hope
ami believe, to the thlnas that sep
arate us and give a great deal of
thought to the things that unite no
thing that are gooa for the heatlna of
this Nation not only, but iur tha hc-uN
ing of all the nations.
"This Is a council of peace, nut to
form plans of peace, for It Is not our
privilege to form such, but i pro
claim the single supremo plan of peaea,
the revelation of our Lord and Saviour,
Jesus Christ. Because wars will never
have any Hiding until men rea.r. tc
hate one another, cease to be Jcalo-ia
of one another and get that frrllne of
reality In the brotherhood of mankind
which Is the only bond that can mult
us think Justly of one another mid ark
righteously before God himself.
Boat Too BIK Be llorkrd.
"1 value the churches of this coun
try as I would value everything rise
that makes for tho stability of our
mora! processes. There are a great
many people not so many that thry
give ine any particular concern but
nevertheless a great many people, who
in the language of the day, are trying
hard "to rock the boat.' The boat is
too big for them to rock.
"They are of such light material that
they cannot rock it much, hut they
are going through tho motions, and
it is Just as well for them to look
around once in a whilo and mo tho
great, steadfast body of elf-possccd
Americans not to be hurried Into any
unconsidered Hiw of action, sure that
when you aro right you can be culm,
sure that when the quarrel Is none of
yours, you can be Impartial, sure- that
the m;n who spend their passion most
will move the body polltlo the leapt,
and that the reaction will not he upon
the great body of American cllixetia,
but upon themselves.
Moral Force Are "MabllUrra.
"So that I look upon you In th pres
ent circumstances as a great part e-f
the stabilizer of the Nation. You
know that somebody has Jut invented
a thing called a stabiliser that is used
in connection with aeroplanes and by
some process, the mechanics of which
I have not had explained to me, and
perhaps could not understand If I had.
this corrects the erratic movements of
the machine, so that it. when adjusted.
determines the plane upon which the
machine Is to move, and the machine
cannot depart from It. Something like
that is the function of the ureat uioral
forces of the world, to act as stabili
zers even when we go up In the air.
'I have come to you tonight, there
fore, may I say, for reassurance, to
look on an, undliiturbed body of men
