docked here shortly before noon today, after an all-night

A great throng waited on the quay, and could be re
strained with difficulty from rushing aboard the McCul
loch after the gangplank was let down. Tear-stained wo
men and children, asking for relatives and friends, storm
ed the McCulloch's officers as they forced their way down
the gangplank to clear a way for the long line of litter
bearers carrying wreck victims to the ambulances.
As soon as the ambulances had departed, the crowds
were allowed on board to view the dead. Men and women
wept when they passed from one body to another and
peered into the still faces in the hope that they could iden
tify friends and relatives who had been counted among
the lost.
But few of the living victims of the Hanalei wreck
were suffering from anything worse than shock. But
when the Golden Gate and Argonaut met the McCulloch
with their crews of doctors and nurses, the survivors pre
sented a pitiful sight. Everything that could be done for
them by the McCulloch officials had been done, but the
effects of their terrible battle with the sea were still viv
idly apparent. Most of the survivors on the McCulloch
were hysterical from their awful experience.

Warm Fight, One Probably
, Heard at Coos Bay
Portland, Ore., Nov. 24 After weeks
of silence the mystery surrounding the
activities of the Canudian navy, con
sisting of the gunboat Kainbow, has
come to toe surface. According to in
formation, received here today from
sources fluid to be reliuble, she mot the
Herman cruiBers I.eipsic and Nurnborg

number of her crew had bei-u wounded,
only through the reinforcement of the
French cruiser Montca'm.
Tho Rainbow, according to the story,
met with the Lcipsic and Nurnberg
and put up a stiff battle although the
odds wero much against her. Hho was
getting tho worst of it when the
French cruiser ilontcnlm appeared on
the scene, and the Germans, after fir

Due to the strict censorship which
prevails in Canada, the story of the
battle was never made public and only
leaked out thrcugh nn unguarded state
ment of an Englishman acquainted
with tne tacts.
Innsmich ns the cannonading h'rard
off Coos Bay several weeks ago has
nover been satisfactorily explained, it
is believed highly probable that those
who heard the booming of guns wore
not mistaken and that it was the en
gngement between the Kainbow and
the two Oerninn ships.

London, Nov. 24. Grandduke Nicholas' Slav forces
held the advantage today in Russian Poland. General
Hindenburg and his German followers were at least tem
porarily on the defensive. A Russian retreat against the .
Teutonic left wing had compelled a re-formation of the
kaiser's front. . . ! '4.
To accomplish the necessary re-disposition of his
troops, Von Hindenburg had been forced to retire some
what. In doing so, it was stated unofficially at Petro
grad that he had suffered heavily.
The Russians were understood here, to outnumber the
Germans two to one, but it was said the Germans excelled
the Russians from the standpoint of mobility.
They were using great trains of automobiles to trans
port men and supplies. The cars were fitted with flanged
wheels to fit the railroad tracks where there were any;
in other places broad, heavy wheels adapted to easy going
over poorly-kept highways or the open fields, were sub
stituted. Conditions were believed here to be more favorable to
the Germans than when they first advanced into Russian
Poland. Then the country was a vast marsh, in which
their big guns and heavy transport wagons were con
stantly bogging down and in some cases having to be
abandoned. Now the ground was trozen hard and their
massive equipment rumbled easily over it.
Russian cavalry was constantly harassing the Teu
tonic flanks.
General Von Hindenburg was believed here to face a
serious situation.. British military experts did not in
dorse the view that he had suffered a defeat, but they did
hold the opinion that he was in danger of one, and defeat,
in his situation, they argued, would be not only defeat but
overwhelming disaster. . '
