When the Ericsson dropped anchor Ad
miral Olcnves, commanding the destroy
er flotilla, ordereil health ofiiccrs
aboard to examine passengers and crew
from the tstephnno.
The youngest passenger aboard was
little brown-eyed Warren Driscoll, of St.
Johns. Warren is four mouths old. With
13 other babies ho is safe ashore today
after an experience, the thrill of which,
may never be repeated though he may
live to be a gray haired man. Miss
Elizabeth Butler, of St. Johns, telling
of her experience, said:
"I lost everything I owned except
what I've got on. My God, it was aw
ful! "We hod just sat down to supper
when suddenly we heard a shot. Some
one called that the ship had been fired
upon. Then I heard the captain yell
to everyone to get. their life preservers
on- I went below deck and put on a life
belt and life preserver. There was uo
time to pick up belongings. The of
ficers urged the utmost haste. As we
went over the side we knew for cer
tain that a submarine had stopped our
ship, though some of the passengers
could even then hardly believe it. I
lost $150, all the money I have been
able to save."
Kitty Trumblett, of St. Johns, said
she had started to lew York for a holi
day. She also lost all of her money
and her visions of an outing were shat
tered, but slie pluckily declared she
didn't care much."
A. C. Ticked, chief of the Stephano,
celebrated his third submarine sinking
when he was taken off the ship. He
was on the Marquette when she was
sunk without warning in the Dardnn
elles. The Marquette was a troop ship
and iickell was a soldier at that time
Shortly after this Tickett was on the
troop ship Manitou which was sunk off
Mnlta by a German submarine. The
chief was wounded this time. Comment-

No Loss of Life Reported
Newport, K. I., Oct. . A' total of
nine ships have been sunk by tierman
submarines up to an early hour this
morning, according to an officer of the
destroyer Kricsson, arriving here.
This officer suid he understood more
than one submarine was surely taking
part in the attueks. lie said information
at Nantucket was that two and possi
bly three submarines had been sighted.
His information was all from Nantuck
et and com inns the reports given out
there as to messages picked up from
wireless flushes. i
One report declares there were two
submarines tho U-53 which put ill at
Newport Saturday, and the U-54. An
other report mentions tffo U-Ul. There
is no way of establishing definitely how
many submarines are on the scene.
All latest information is that there
has been no loss of life. All passengerB

en route to Newport aboard United
States destroyers. Passengers from the
Stephano, and crews of the Btrnthden,
the West Point, the Kingston, the
Hloomersdijk aud tho Christian Kud-i
son, were taken off during yesterday!
afternoon and late last night.

nieiit, after viewing a photograph of the

call at Newport Saturday, was taken i
as conclusive proof that more thiin onoj

New Knglaml coast over Sunday. j
Alter studying the photograph, both
officers and men said the ship hulling
them was different und that the men
aboard were not the sumo as those de
picted on the U-5;i. .
Tho submarine raider did not board
the Kansan. Instead, the German cap
tain hailed the vessel from deck, after
spotting her American flag, and the
U-boat dropped out of sight just us

The theory that there is more than
one submarine off tho coast was also
borne out by the story told by Captain j
E. 1.. Smith ot the Kaiisau. . .
Smith declared he had hardly de
parted from the V-bont which held hUu
up when he heard the call of the steam
er West Point saying slits had been
fuel on. The West Point was some ins
tance away. Captain Smith said:
