Two Shots Fired From Steam

Several Ships Are Reported

here from Bonleaux.

Two shots were fired by the Gunyse
gunner, he said, and the second struck

appeared. The gunner aboard the lluayiie, a Rre
ton. refused to discuss the incident, but
others talked of it, paying tribute to the
quickness and accuracy of his fire,

sitlooarine was firing, they said, and
narrowly escaped being struck. Both

Everyone aboard know that the next
shot would settle the battle and that all
depended upon the next shot. The breton
fired a moment before the tJerman and
the shot struck squarely.
The l'-boat floundered for a moment,
desperately striving to keep afloat, but
finally disappeared. Captain Rousselol
said his gunner stopped firing when he
saw that the submarine had boon hit.
The Guayne is a steel freighter of 2,
4UII tons net. She has carried millions
of dollars worth of munitions to the al
lies since the beginning of the war and
has had her 115 millimeter gun aboard
since the submarine operations began to
be a menace
The gun is the same as that carried
by other French ships mounted astern
so that the vessel must turn unless the
submarine approaches from the stern.
Captain Roussolot told his story of
the sinking of the l'-boat at the French
consul's office, where he went imme
diately after landing.
"We left Bordeaux January 21 in
ballast." he said. ''It was about noon
of the next day when we observed off
our port side a freight steamship with
two masts and one funnel. She was
about; three miles away. As we watched,

slatted toward us.
"I immediately swung the boat about
to train our gun on the 'submarine, but

There was a b. royal Saturday
afternoon in the sen. hen H. B. No.
.'102 came up at 4 o'cMrk. By arrange
ments made in the morning Representa
tive Bean was asked to address the sen
ate for 10 minutes iu explaining the bill
and Representative Eaton was given the
same time to show up his side of the
case which was against the bill.
la the final clash Eaton spoke but
seven minutes, giving three minutes of
his time to Bean to reply. .Senators
generally took part in the debate which
Olson backed old man Oregon against
the world, the flesh and the devil, so
to speak, and insisted the senate had a
right to tax the lands. "I am con
cerned," he said, 'Mo know whether the
state of Oregon is a -vassal or whether
she shall assert her sovere gnty" to tax
the land withing her borders."
"If we are going to recognize the
right, to take parts of our land off the
tax rolls and put them in some sort of
reserve then w e might as well surrender
our franchise. ' '
"I believe that this declaration here
in this bill is a declaration of our sov
ereign rights that will safeguard the
rights of the people." The senator was!
ojnphntic and talked so fiercely that
one folt he might declare Oregon a free I
and independent nation, but he refrain-,

Three Bills Acted Upon.
The day had been consumed in acting!

about 05 house bills ready for action.

Espionage , Bill Is Urged In!
Order to Protect Country
In Event of War
Washington, Eeb. 19. There are
100,000 spies in the United States, Sen
ator l,ee Overman declared on the sen
ate floor today during debate on the
espionage bill, for protection against

The espionage bill provides:
Against the entrance of any person

Against the unlawful possession of

the national defense.
Against sending through the mails

Against abuse of passport privileges
and government seals.
Against conspiracies to injure prop

the United States is at peace.
Against the inception within the

That the president may condemn

in violation of neutrality laws.
Against conspiracy to injure vessels

President Wilson, under the bill, is
given also wide discretionary powers
"to better enforce the neutrality of

it and as usual, "it would not coHt the
state a cent, the companies footing all
Senator Farrell also had an affec
tionate regard for the bill, saying it was
proposed to make Bob Stevenj, present
fire marahal of Portland, the chief for
the state.
Dimick objected, and BO did Eddy,

pyrotechnieal display. They both roast

commenced punching holes in the bill
that, the real blaze flared up. He ridi
culed Orton's statement that it would
cost the state nothing by reading from
the bill showing it provided for making
a host of officers all over the state
who were to be paid out of the funds in
the hands of the insurance commis
sioner. And the Bill Passes.
"Why," said Strayer, "it will mean
that our homes may be invaded at all
hours, by the meanest constable in the
nearest town in the meanest county in
the state." Someone asked a question,
and he replied: "Yes, I mean Tult -nomah

with it there was nor a peg for the ad
vocates of the bill to hang a defense on,
but it went through because the Mult
nomah delegation wanted it, and what
it wauts it gets. It was the same old
argument that as the money was paid
by those, insuring and not by the 'fax
payer" that it cost nothing, but Strayer
insisted that someone paid the bills and
that those people lived in Oregon,

President Will Not Go Before
Congress With Further .
Negotiations Still In Progress
to Prevent Break with
By Robert 3- Bender.
(United I'ress staff correspondent.)
Washington, Feb. 10. Although un
changed in its dangerous particulars, the
German-American situation today was
generally regarded by officials os more
hopeful than at any time since the dip
lomatic break two weeks ago.
The situation is such that the United
Press can state positively the president
has "no present intention of going to
congress to discuss it in any way.'"
No "overt act has vet occurred anil
officials see in recent actions bv 0:r-
uiany, no apparent change of attitude
toward this government.
The purpose of the president is un
changed, however. He does not intend
to pause in the work of preparing, mere
ly because there appears to be a ma
terial slump in the daily "bags" of F-
Demand Sailors' Release.
Formal demands have gone forward
as was expected for release of the Am
erican Yarrowdalo prisoners held in Ber
lin. When on Saturday confirmation'of
press reports that the prisoners Had
been released failed to reach the state
department the government cabled its
demands. Twenty four hours later, Sec
retary Lansing Was notified by the
Spanish ambassador at Berlin that the
prisoners would be released "soon."
This, however, Lansing intimated to
day, probably was not in response to
Saturday's demands, but rathTr to in
quiries previously sent.
With this and other critical situations
alleviated, the president today is laying
plans for handling the situation after
congress adjourns, March 5.
Pacifists Are Encouraged.
Congress members who have frankly
expressed pacifist and pro-German ten
dencies in floor speeches are much im
pressed with reports from Austria to the
effect that officials there are hoping
for a complete congressional airing of
German-American relations. Such mem
bers have themselves expressed that
identical view.
This procedure is exactly what tho
president wishes to avoid at this time.
It is the one thing that might force his
hand and make him fed he shnnld im
mediately ask through the medium of
adinistratioii leaders or personal appeal
for the powers he is known to want in
I handling the international situation.
It was pointed out today that tho
president has two alternatives. One is
introduction by his congressional bad,
ers of a joint resolution providing an
appropriation and frte rein ond in hand
ling the situation; the other is the per

pected once more to outline the whole
'situation and suggest that, in view of
the present critical condition of affairs,
eongross should vest in him broad pnw
ers to protect American rights, proper
ty and lives as he sees it.
Decision Up to President.
It apepars a near certainty that tho
president will reach a decision on these
j two alternatives within the next few
days necause or tne proxinury oi ad
journment. It may be stated positively
that unless the situation takes drastic,
turns 'for the worse, the president noes
! not want, ami will do alt iu his power
I to avoid an extra session.
In Iho meantime negotiations tending
jto avoid a break between Austria-Hungary
and the United states continue.
; First Secretary Grew, formerly of tho
j Berlin embassy, has arrived in Vienna,
according to unofficial reports. Some
jlhiug definite in the Austro-American
situation can be expected at any time,
