BATTLE FROM BRITISH
Five German Vessels Sunk Three British Warships-
Ldndon was silenttoday regard.
iqg the naval engagement off the
ChHean coast Sunday. The
American minister at Santiago,
Henry H. Fletcher, 'however,
confirms the German official and
,press reports of a German naval'
victory, in which five German
naval vessels sunk or put out of
action three British warships.
Until the British admiralty
has spoken the extent of their
losses cannot be known. Accord.
ing to German report., the Brit-
ish cruiser Monmouth was sunk,
the efuiser Good Hope put to
flight when apparently in sinking
condition, and the Glasgow
driven into a neutral port. The
German ships are said to have
been undamaged, and the loss of
life on board not to have exceed-
ed two men. If two British
cruisers'went down, it is possible
that some 1,600 men were lost.
Early reports spoke of the craiIer
Dresden as one of the German
squadron. Today's advices from
OChile mention the Bremen, but
do not speak of the Dresden.
It is impossible to determine
which one of the warships wai
engaged, while it impossible that
both wore in the action.

ANTWERP GETTING BACK TO NORMAL
AFTER WEEKS OF TERROR AND PANIC
Antwerp.-Antwerl..radually is re-
turning to normal conditions. About
150,000 of the city's 360,000 Inhabl-
tants, most of whom fled when the
Germans occupied it, have, returned
to their homes.
Bome bakeries, meat shops and
grocery stores are opening In the
poorer section of the city, and a few
old women with dog carts are offer-
nlg apples and vegetables In the once
busy markets. The German hag flies
from the tower of the cathedral of
Notre Dame, but Belgian priests are
reading mass as usual.
The streets virtually are deserted
except for the gray German automo-
biles which dash along at mad speed
carrying officers clad in smoke gray

glans by the invaders, but this kind-
ness makes the Belgians susplolous,
as they believe, they say, that a trap
is being laid.
Thousands of Nativea Return.
Over twelve thousand Belgians re-
turned to Antwerp, and probably half
that number from Holland. All of
the Holland border towns are filled
with frantic Belgians, who move about
anxiously seeking relatives and are
afraid to return to their native land.
The country about Antwerp is deso-
It is estimated that about three
hundred buildings were destroyed in
Antwerp by bombs, most of these
structures being residences. The Hotel
de I'Europe and the Taverne Royale
on La Place Verte wore among 25
large buildings destroyed by fire
caused by bombs.
La Mier aqd other leading business
streets are untouched, but all the
large business houses are still closed,
despite the efforts of the Germans to
restore normal con tons.

Consul Diederlch and the American
vice-consul, Harry Sherman, both nar-

FOES' HIDDEN IN TRENCHES
FIGHT DAY AND NIGHT
By KARL H. VON WIEGAND.
(United Pre" Staff Correspondeot.)
St. Mihiel, France.-Fighting day
and night from deep trenches whose
wonderfully effective entanglements
of barbed wire, steel sharp-pointed
rods and sharp-pointed stakes almost
touch, the thousands of men compris-
ing the German left and the French
opposing wing seldom see each other.
Probably never before has there
been staged a battle so theatrically
set as is the present. The line of
battle runs wave-shaped for miles
through dense forests, over and around
high hills and across deep valleys
traversed with fast-running streams
The French stubbornly contest every
attempt of the Germans to advance.
Lines of trenches are extended a
foot at a time. The thousands on
each side dig themselves In like flelf
moles. They cover their every mole-
ment Even the guns are hidden and
their location cannot be ascertained
by the opposing forces, as their
smokeless powder leaves no trace.
Visible to Aviators.
And In the open country the
trenches are so constructed as to be
invisible to an aviator unless he fies@
very low. When he does fly low he
seldom returns to report. But there
anre always volunteers on both sides to
attempt It. They go out and most of
S them are killed. A few are captured
alive and they are treated with the
" consideration their daring demands.
SThe Germsas have oeecupied St
Mbel and are holding it and the ter-

Now Seek Verdun Forte.
The reports that the Germans were
making an assault In force on Tolni

present their chief objective Is the
smaller line of forts along the Meuse
line from Toul to Verdun. These are
Troyon, Genecourt, Les Paroches,
Camp de Romains, Lionvllle, Giron-

ficulties. In addition, the bombard-

'While passing through Vervinay I
witnessed a daring piece of work by
a French aviator. Under cover of a

covered. Although the German artil-
lery fairly rained shrapnel around his
fleeing plane he mounted almost

turesque. A thick fog hid the French
trenches 800 yards away. The ghost.

the thunder of the guns would punctu-

FIELDS ARE CHOKED WITH
BODIES OF SLAIN SOLDIERS

Dunkirk.-I am writing this die-
patch to the sound of heavy rifle firing
in the streets of this town. A German
Taube just now-was flying above us
)bullets. n finally 4aaeared In tbe
direction of Ostend without doing or
receiving any damage.
This is the second aerial call the
Germans have paid Dunkirk today.
About nine o'clock this morning a
Taube hovered over the town for a
considerable period. The aviator paid
dearly for his temerity, for his mae
chine was badly damaged by shot and
he was forced to descend outside the
town, only to find himself and the ma-
chine immediately captured.
The Taube has been led in triumph
through the streets of the town.
Naval Guns Repulge Germans.
It now appears certain that the Ger-
mans have been shelled out of their
positions at Ostend. Small parties,
however, were reported to be in the
town itself this morning.
The bombardment by the British
and French naval guns of the Ger.
man right wing resulted in clearing the
coast from Nieuport to Ostend of the
enemy for a distance of several miles.
In the interior the Germans are re-

LEE COUNTY IS AROUSED
Those Opposing New Court House
Threaten Injunction To Halt
Fort Myers.-In spite of efforts to
prevent the erection of the proposed
new court house by seeking an in-
junction restraining the contractor
from beginning work, the old build-
ing to be replaced with a new one
was razed to the ground during the
night by a large force of workmen
and Lee county is now without a
county office building.
The situation growing out of the In-
tention of the Board of county com-
missioners to have a new court house
erected is interesting. Attorneys C. F.
Johnson and W. F. Parry, represent-
ing citizens, left for Bartow to sue
out an injunction against the com-
missioners and the contractor, the lat-

tract calling for the erection of a
Despite the strong opposition which
developed when the talk of a new
court house was commenced, there is
comparatively little opposition now,
and when the people see the old build-
ing completely razed and the need for
a new building, there will be no oppo-
sition, the commissioners believe.
FLORIDA'S SHIPPING IMPROVED.
Railroad And Steamship Freight Is
Gradually Improving, Asserts
Jacksonville.-General freight traf-
fic in Florida and elsewhere has in-
creased to nearly its normal status,
according to H. C. Avery. When war
was first declared three months ago,
there was a decided slump in the
freight business that was felt by both
railroad and steamship lines. Slowly
by degrees the local freight began to
move, but foreign shipping was dead,
as no goods would be received for
foreign consignees. Since Great Brit-
ain's announcement to this country
that she would not consider cotton as

St. Augustine.-That St Augustine

So many have been the responses to
the requests made here that it has
been necessary to ask the public to
leave the gifts at the chamber of
commerce only between the hours of
4 and 5 o'clock. Toys, clothing, mon-
ey and other articles are being re-

from here will be a large one. Local

are behind the work and are meeting
with all possible encouragement.

purpose of complimenting the ladies
and getting some valuable advertise-

ENTERS INTO WAR
Italy, groecI ld Bai States Are New

CHRISTIANS ARE IN DANGER
Grave Fears Are Felt For Safety Of
Christians in Turkey-Masseacre
The war situation in Europe has de-
veloped a number of new difficulties
within the past week. Turkey has
entered into the great game and made
her introduction into hostilities by
shelling two Russian towns. The bat-
.U tJe along the Yeer between the allied
armies and the Germans has sunk into
a lull due to the fact that the sol-
diers of both opposing armies are ex-
hausted after days of constant fight-
Much concern is being felt in this
country over the entrance of Turkey
into the European war. It is gener-
ally believed by the war department
officials of this country that Turkey's
warlike attitude will ultimately mean
that Greece, Italy and the Balkan
States will be drawn into the conflict.
A very grave danger is said to be
facing the Christians in the Ottoman
empire. According to the latest re-
ports from Turkey the people are stir-
red with a hatred for the Christians
within their borders and an uprising
and massacre is greatly feared. This
will place the United States in a deli-
cate position, for there are thousands
of Americans in Turkey who must be
It is the unanimous 4blief of the al-
lied powers that Germany was the
guiding hand in the hostile move made
by Turkey. The leading newspapers
of London predict that this will mean
the complete overthrow of the Turk-
is empire and that when the war is
ended Turkey, as a government, will
be no more. Italy is expected to take
a prominent part in the subduing of
the Turks, while Greece, it is believed,
will not lose another opportunity to
crush her oldtime enemy.
In East Prussia and Russian Poland
the Germans are not faring so well in
their campaign against the Russians.
Dispatches from Berlin admit that the
German armies were forced to retire
from before Warsaw. The Russian ad-
vices say that the retrAt of th ,Oer-
m- m t 4 C tr-fttW6 &' ariot and the
Russian arms are inflicting heavy
losses upon the fleeing Germans.
The secon&tuprising In British South
Africa, which was led by General

tian Frederick Beyers, promised for a
time to be more serious than the first,
but that at the present time it had
been greatly subdued. Premier Bo-
tha, the British leader In South Af-
rica, issued a proclamation call*
upon the people of the Union to as-
staist the government to suppress any
revolt that may arise against the moth-
failuree, for the ime at least, re-
sulted in the attempts of the Ger-
mans to secure command of the sea-
ports along the coast of France. In
the event that the kaiser determined
upon an assault on England, the pos-
session of the seaports along the
French coast, together with the com-
mand of the Antwerp, Ostend and the
Belgian coast, would prove invalua-
The fighting in the region of the sea
coast has been the most severe since
the Germans invaded Belgium.
Day after day the Germans have
hurled great masses of troops against
the lines of the allied armies but each
time they were repulsd. It is said
by military experts that the very safe-
ty of England depends upon the abil-
ity of the allied armies to hold the
Germans in check and defeat their ef-
forts to gain command of the sea-
When the armies of the kaiser push-
ed onward towards the coast of Bel-
gium and began fighting their way
in the direction of the French coast,
the lines of the allies were quickly
shifted. The left wing of the allied
-- armies in France was extended until
.. it reached to the sea. It was then

MONEY WILL BE SPENT
In This Country For The Purchase Of
Great Quantities Of War
Washington.-Credit loans by Amer-
lcan banks to belligerent countries are
viewed as private transactions by the
Washington government and adminis-
tration officials will not Interpose
their influence against such transac.
This was learned on the highest au-
thority, after it became known that
German financiers were contemplating
establishment of a credit loan In this
country similar to the ten million
credit fund negotiated by the National
City Bank of New York and other
bankers for France.
The decision of the administration,
it was said, may lead to the pur-
chase In the United States of fifty
million dollars' worth of supplies by
Russia and an equal amount by Ger-
many. Details of the expected trans.
actions are lacking here.
High administration officials insist
that President Wilson has not changed
the view he announced at the outbreak
of the war, that the loaning of money
to belligerents would be 'inconsistent
with the true spirit of American neu-
trality." A distinctionn was drawn by,
officials, however, between the loans
referred to at that time, such as bond
issued offered for public sale, and cred-
it transactions Intended as a checking
'account against the purchase by bel-
ligerents of foodstuffs and supplies
from American firms.
The president realizes that this gov-
ernment has no legal right to oppose
loans of any character, nor is there
any obligation of international law for.
bidding them. During the Russo-Japa-
nese war loans were floated for Japan
in the United States through public
bond issues. The president is under-
stood, however, to regard that form of
loan as liable to stir up ill-feeling ant

Urging Completion Of Cotton Pil
Washington. Secretary McAdoo
made public a letter he has sent to -
clearing houe..chairmen throughout
the country urging support of the
$136,000,000 eottbu loan fund. He said
the cotton situation presented a prob.
lem "of the most urgent character,"
and declared his conviction that
prompt subscription of the loan fund
wguld "be productive of immensely
beneficial results." The contemplated
acceptance of subscribers' certificates
as a basis for emergency currency is-
sues, he added, "should greatly fa-
cilitate the banks in making and tak-
ing care of their subscriptions."
More replies favorable to the loan
fund plan reached the federal reserve
board, but members of the board
pointed out that consideration by
clearing house associations and then
by individual banks might delay final
action in the matter for several days.
FREIGHT AATES UNCHANGED
Railroads Are Authorized By Commis-
sion To Continue Present Rates
Washington.-Freight rates through.
out what is known as "Southeastern
territory"-that. part of the country
east of the Mississippi and south of
the Potomac and Ohio rivers-were
affected by a decision announced by
the interstate commerce commission.
Ip a decision, supplemental to that
announced several months ago, con-
cerning applications of carriers for re-
lief from the operation of The long-
and-short-haul provision of the law,
with respect to class sand commodity
rates from all sections of the South
to destinations in the South Atlantic
and Gulf states, the carriers in most
instances were authorised, under spec.-
ified restrictions, to continue exiting
class and commodity rates, which are
mainly higher to intermediate points
than to more distant ponlats.
