"Anyone Who Telia You Otherwiae

He Telli Committee.
SPEAKS LANGUAGE OF PEOPLE
WASHINGTON. Dec. . Presi
dent Wilson told membera of the
democratic national committee at a
InnrhAnn in the state dining room
of the White House- today that the
republican! had no Issue for the next
campaign except the tariff and that
democracy waa certain to win.'.
. "Our constructive work has started an
irresistible movement which cannot be
stopped." he declared. "Anyone who tells
you otherwise is talking through his hat. 1
' Presides! Informal.
.Mr. Wilson said nothing to indicate
whether he would again be a candidate
for the presidency.
Throughout his entire talk, which dealt
with subjects ranging from democratlo
chances of victory to features of the
life of a chief executive," the president
waa informal. Taking his place at the
head of the table, he thrust his hands Into
his. trousers pockets, cast aside what he
termed his dress parade language and
talked freely and confidentially.
' Falthfal Are Pleased.
Democrats -of at lfactions greeted bis
remarks enthusiastically They left the
White House In buoyant spirits, declaring
that bis optimism had Inspired them with
new confidence. It waa the flrat time,

oil Ship reported : ' "
. sunkis captured
. (Continued from Fate One.)
from the captain of a steamer, who said
that while he was cruising near Tobruk ,
ha witnessed the sinking of an American
steamer by a subnemible. lie thought
tha name of this steamer was tha Colum
bia. Inquiries made later, especially
throimh tha British authorities, proved i
that the ship waa the Communlpaw.
The Communlpaw had aboara
tons of oil and bad been held up at
Genoa to aettle a question concerning
l.ooo tons of this oil. which the Italian
authorities suspected might be contra
band. The Communlpaw waa released
after a eatlsfactory explanation had been
roaimaalpawr RBore by Lloyds.
LONDON, lee. a A telegram from Al
exandria, Egypt, received today by
Lloyda, says that the American steam
ahip "Communlpaw, reported sunk off the
coast of Tripoli by a submarine, waa at
Alexandria on Monday, it is Inferred
that Bosslbl soma confusion hai arisen
In regard to the Identity of the vessel
torpedoed. . .
If the report of the torpedoing of the
Communlpaw la substantiated. It must
have discharged its cargo of oil and have
been on the way to another port when
attacked. It is recalled that the point
at which the Communlpaw is said to
have been sunk corresponds closely to the
position of the American tank ahlp Pe
trollte when It was attacked by a sub
marine on Sunday.
The announcement from Rome of the
torpedoing of the Communlpaw said It
had been aunk near Trobuck, Tripoli. The
position of the Petrollte was given aa off
the eoutheaat coast of the island of
Crete. The Island lies directly north of
Tripoli, about 100 mllea from the African
WASHINGTON. Dec. t. Word that the
American Standard Oil tank steamer

era Mediterranean by a large submarine
flying- the Austrian flag came to the
Ma.vv department late today to a cable-
mm from the cruiser Dea Moines at
Canea. island of Crete. One man on the
tanker was slightly Injured.
This Information waa turned over to the
State department where it waa thought
no action would be taken pending the re- J
oelpt o,f further details. No report had
been received by the government tonight
of the sinking of the Standard Oil
steamer Communlpaw by a submarine off
the coast of Tripoli, reported In press dis
patches from Rome, and officials did not
comment on the case In the absence of
Information concerning the clroumsunoes.
Tanker Trie f mease.
It was pointed out that the attitude of
the United States would depend entirely
upon whether the tankers were attacked
without warning or attempted to eecspe
after being called upon to submit to visit
and search. In the case of the Petrollte
It appeared that it not only tried to es
cape, but actually did SO.
. When the dispatch came from the Dei
Moines officials thought they had the
explanation Of the . mysterious wireless
message picked up at Athens saying aa
AmerUau vessel was being attacked by
a submarine south of the Island of Crete.
It was recalled, however, that the mes
sage reached Athena Saturday rooming,
while the Petrollte did not encounter the
submarine until Sunday.
If the Conuuunipaw waa sunk near the
roast of Tripoli it must have been some
&u0 miles or more from the point where

the Pond on Time
NEW TORK, Dec. . Railroad officials
here say that war munitions and other
freight consigned for export to foreign
governments are not subject to the em
Largo on Iron and steel articles Imposed
by the Lehigh Valley railroad and on all
export freight by the Central Railroad of
New Jersey. The products of ammunition
factories, the officials say, will go
through New Tork as usual because It is
not the war munitions that are causing
the freight congestion here and at other
Atlantic ports. '
It I explained that when a quantity of
freight consigned to Great Britain or any i
European government la brought here for '
export if no vessel happens to be avail- j
able, the foreign government requisitions t
some vessel flying its flag to carry the '
freight across the ocean. The railroad !
men say It is the freight consigned to
private brokers who must use private
means of transatlantic transportation that
has caused the congestion. ,
A committee of shippers belonging to
the Merchants' association win confer
today with members of the trunk line
sssociatlon In an effort to prevent the
reduction by the railroads of free storage
time from thirty to fifteen days.
There la little danger of a scarcity of
flour in New Tork City because of the '
embargo, according to railroad officials.
