Brazilian Vessel Brings Report
of Fight Between Trans-,
. port and Submarine. '
Survivors of Various Victims of
Raiders Continue fo Reach Amer
ican Ports Mauban Sunk
Off Italian Coast.
WASHINGTON. June 10. Germany's
submarine raiders, which some 16 days
aero made their first appearance in
American waters since the declaration
of war, apparently are still ranging
off the Atlantic coast, though no re
ports of additional sinkings had been
received at the Navy Department late
tonight to add to the official toll of
18 craft sent to the bottom.
The last announcement from the de
partment concerning the operations of
the raiders came last night and told
nf the sinking of the American steamer
Pinar del Rio Saturday morning off
the Virginia capes.
The master of a Brazilian steamer
arriving today at an Atlantic port said
he had sighted a submarine this morn
ing 75 miles off the New Jersey coast
and had seen an American transport
open fire on the U-boat, but at the
department late tonight it was said
that no confirmation of this encoun
ter had been received.
Survivors of the Pinar del Rio ar
riving at Norfolk said after they aban
doned their ship they saw the subma
rine which sank the Rio send down an
American sailing vessel and a schooner
but, so far as known, their crews have
not yet been landed and the Navy De
partment said It had no reports to con
firm these statements.
"Mother" Ship Theory Doubted.
Observers here were not inclined to
agree with the theory of the Rio's sur
vivors that the vessel which they saw
near the submarine was a "mother"
ship. They believed rather that it was
probably a freight steamer which the
raider had overhauled and kept within
range of its guns with a view to re
plenishing Its stores at leisure before
sinking the craft.
Even if the raiders are accompanied
by a "mother" ship, it was said, the,
latter vessel would hardly make its
appearance in the shipping lanes, where
it would be in imminent danger of
encountering the swift destroyers and
other patrols vigorously, seeking the
American transport fired five shots at
a German submarine this morning 75
miles off the Jersey coast with un
known results, according to informa
tion brought here tonight by the cap
tain of a Brazilian steamship.
Five Shots Heard.
The ship, .bound north from a South
American port; sighted the submarine
soon after 10 o'clock. Immediately full
speed ahead was ordered and the vessel
zigzagged. , -j.
A. few minutes later a. vessel In
the distance, which later was identi
fied as a United States Army transport,
opened fire on the submarine. Two
shots were heard, followed almost im
mediately by three others.
The submarine was too far away,
said the South American captain, for
him to tell whether any of the shots
took effect. He also said that he
thought the transport was too far from
the submarine for the latter to try a
hit with a torpedo.
Result of Fight Unknown.
The Brazilian steamer continued its
course with all possible speed for this
port without waiting to ascertain the
result of the encounter.
NORFOLK, Va. June 10. Survivors
of the American freighter Pinar del
Rio, arriving here today from Manteo,
N. C, said the German submarine
which sank their vessel 110 miles
northeast of Cape Henry last Saturday
morning after a stern chase of more'
than an hour was accompanied by a
large steamer which they believed to
be a "mother" ship.
They also asserted that after their
vessel was sent down by gunfire the
submersible sank two American sailing
"Walter C. B. Burrows, first assistant
engineer of the Pinar del Rio, described
the craft with the submarine as a
vessel of 6000 gross tons with a single
funnel amidships. She was painted
gray and stood some two or three
miles in the offing while the subma
rine sank the Rio. When the American
craft went down the submarine sig
nalled the vessel in international code
"follow me," and the U-boat and her
consort steamed away.
NEW YORK, June 10. Captain J.
Mackenzie and 16 members of the crew
cf the American steamship Pinar del
Tiio, who have been missing' since the
vessel was sunk by a German subma
rine off the coast of Maryland on June
8, reached here today on a Norwegian
steamship, which rescued them from a
small lifeboat about 70 miles off the
coast of New Jersey.
All the members of the crew are thus
accounted for. The chief mate and 15
men were landed early 'this morning
on the North Carolina coast.
Hour Granted to Quit Ship.
The U-boat sank the Pinar del Rio
75 miles off the Maryland coast with
gunfire after the crew had been given
opportunity to get into the two life
boats. Captain Mackenzie said. The
Americans took their time and it was
half an hour before they left the ves
sel. Captain Mackenzie and his compan
ions drifted 10 hours before being
picked up by the Norwegian ship.

Win, Says Lansing. .
Secretary of State, in- College Ad
dress, Assert Prusslanism and
Enduring Peace Cannot
Be Harmonized.
SCHENECTADY. N. T.. June 10.
"Prusslanism and the idea of enduring
peace among nations can never be
brought into harmony; compromise
cannot even be considered," Robert
Lansing. Secretary of State, declared
here today in an address as honorary
chancellor of Union College for 1918.
Instance after instance from his own
experience at the head of America's
Foreign Office were cited to prove his
point because, he asserted, "Americans,
even those intellectually equipped, have
but vague ideas ofc the attitude which
made Prusslanism possible."
The causes of the war, Mr. Lansing
said, were simply the German desire for
world dominion.
"That was and is the central thought
of Prusslanism," he said. "It excited
the cupidity of the governing and
wealthy classes of the empire; it das
sled with its anticipated glories and by
its promise of a boasted racial su
periority to the German millions who
were to he the Instrument of achieve
ment. With a devotion and seal worthy
of better cause they turned their
energy Into those channels which would
aid the ruling class.
"We must go on with the war. There
Is no other way. This task must not be
left half done. We must not transmit
to posterity a legacy of blood and
"We may in this great conflict go
down Into the valley of shadows, be
cause our foe Is powerful and Inured
to war. We must be prepared to meet
disappointment and temporary reverse,
but we must, with American spirit, rise
above them. With courageous hearts
we must go forward until this war Is
Witness at Revenue Bill Hearing Saya
War Cnta Poor People Propor
tionately More Than Rich.
WASHINGTON", June 10. Hearings
on the new general revenue bill, de
signed to raise 8. 000. 000. 000 by taxa
tion this coming year, were resumed
today by the House ways committee.
Drafting of the bill will probably start
next week.
Benjamin C. Marsh, representing the
Farmers' National committee on war
finance, the first witness today, waa
questioned by Representative Moore,
of Pennsylvania, regarding an article
he wrote saying he had been informed
by a member of Congress that the rea
son excess profits had not been taxed
was because bankers control the news
papers and the newspapers intimidate
Congress. He declined to give the
name of the member.
"Do you think that statement Is
true?" asked Representative Moore.
"I am afraid that in some cases It
Is," he replied.
Marsh told the committee he believed
the poor people of the country are
paying more to support the war in
proportion to their incomes than are
the rich.
