NEW YORK. Aug. 24. It It was due
to the action of a German submarine that
American citizens lost their lives In the
torpedoing of the steamship Arabic, sueh
action was contrary to the Intentions of
the German government, according to of
ficial advices received today by the Ger

graphed by him to Washington.
It was also said in the communication
that the German government wlil deeply
regret such a loss of life and would tender
the sincercst sympathies to the American
The text of the, letter given out by
fount '.'on Bernstorff read:
'Th'j German ambassador received the
following Instructions from Beriln, which
).e communicated to the Department of
"So far no official Information Is avail
able concerning the sinking of the Arabic.
The German government trusts that the
American government will not take a
definite stand at hearing only the re
ports of one side, which in the op.nkm of
the Imperial government cannot cor
respond wlththe acts, buttb,a.t a-. chance
will be given to Germany to bo heard
i "Al though the Imperial government
does not doubt the good faith of the
witnesses whose statements are reported
by the newspapers in Europe, It should
be borne In mind that these statements
are naturally made under excitement
which might easily produce wrong Im
pressions. If Americans should actually
have lost their lives this would be natur
ally contrary to our intentions. Tho Ger
man government would deeply regret tho
tact and begs to tender slncerest sym
pathies to the American government."
The ambassador made no comment upon
the statement and an attache said that
it spoke for Itself. The statement was ;
given out from Count von Bernstarff'sl
rooms In an uptown hotel.
Count von Bernmorff denied a state

DERLIN, Aug. 24. (By Wireless
to Sayvllle.) The German admir
alty today announced that a German
submarine had torpedoed and sunk a
Russian auxiliary ship at the en
trance to the Gulf of Finland.
LONDON, Aug. 24. The latest
details concerning the Riga naval
battle have failed to clear up tha
situation. Petrograd advices make
It appear certain that the Germans
met with a severe reverse, although
official Berlin reports remain silent
concerning the Russian claims. The
Russians now state that an addi
tional cruiser must be added to those
already reported gunk or put out of
action. Whether the German battle
cruiser attacked by a British sub
marine waa sunk remains to be told,
the official report from Petrograd
having given no details beyond stat
ing that it was torpedoed.
Kxoe.pt for tha report from tha marina
ministry at Paris concerning the sinking
of a German patrol boat off Oatond,
which Is admitted by Berlin, no official
news has been received of the result of
the allied bombbardment of Gurman po
sitions on the Beltfium coast.
The Russian armies luwo not stopped
th Auatro-German advance, although
they are compelling tha central powers
to fight for every step won. Sever en
counters continue before Broet-IJtovsk,
but tha Baltto oampalgn la making little
progress, although a decisive stroke then
by Field Murahal Von illndanburg has
long been expeoted.
On the western front, with tha excep
tion of an Infantry attack which la said
to hav won for the French some Ger

fare is marked by comparatively Inef
fectual artillery, bomb and mine combats.

Mr. Z'mmcrman, who has been In Rus
