hero September 5 and received Instruc
tions from the German government to
capture tho Firmlnlst gunboat Crete-a-Plerrot
It left Immediately for Qon
alves, tho seat of the FirmtnlBt gov

in tho harbor of Gonalves and tho
commander of the German gunboat In
formed Admiral Kllllck on Crete-a-Plcrrot
that ho must remove his crew
and surrender his vessel In five min
utes. Admiral Kllllck asked that this
time bo extended to fifteen minutes.
Tho request was granted on the con
dition that tho arms and ammunition
on board Creto-a-Pierrot should be
abandoned when Its crew left it. Tho
crew of Crete-a-Plerrot left that ves
sel amid great disorder. At tho end
of fifteen minutes Panther sent a small
boot carrying an officer and twenty
sailors, who were to take possession
of the Firmlnlst gunboat.
When these men arrived at a point

MANCHESTER, Mass., Sept 8.
Count Quadt Wykradt Isny of tho
German embassy was seen In relation
to tho sinking of the gunboat Crete-a-Plerrot
by tho German gungoat
Panther. He said that he had not
heard of tho Incident until Informed
of it by the Associated Press and for
this reason he was not prepared to
make any statement. He did say,
however; "I have given tho matter
little thought, as It la entirely out
side of this country and for that rea
son I do not expect to receive any
Civics concerning It from my gov
ernment. While I do not care to make
any prediction as to tho outcome, I feel
quite sure and safe In saying that no
international complications will arise
with this country. This is all I care
to say In regard to the affair."
