Many Towns and . Cities Are
Quarantining Against All
Children from New York.
THEBTY-TWO KOBE DEES
New York, July 11. A Urge in
create in the number of deaths and
new cases in the epidemic of infantile
paralysis was reported today. Dur
ing the last twenty-four hours 195
new cases developed in the five bor
oughs of New York City and there
were thirty-two deaths.
This is an increase of more than
100 per cent in the number of deaths
resulting from the plague in the twenty-four
hours ending at 10 o'clock this
morning compared with the previous
twenty-four-hour record. In Brook
lyn sixty-eight new easel were re
ported yesterday, against 155 today.
There are now a total of 1,278 cases of
infantile paralysis in the greater city.
Deaths since the outbreak of the
scourge number 270. . . -
Communities immediately surround
ing New- York 'City show increasing
fear that they will be infected with
infantile paralysis from children flee
ing the plague in the metropolis. A
number of cities and towns in New
Jersey and New York have estab
lished quarantines and some are
turning back children from New York
City. Paterson, N. J.-, has excluded
all children, no matter from whence
they come. It was announced there
that 500 children from New York
City already have been deported.
The city magistrates are co-operating
with the police and health au
thorities in the fight against the epi
demic. It is estimated that more
than 1,000 persons were fined yester
day for violations of the sanitary code.
Most of the offenders threw gar
bage into the street or left garbage
cans uncovered or in other ways
broke the rules for keeping the city
clean. i " ' - .

The very nature of construction of
submarine, it is also held, makes, it
impossible for such a craft to com
ply with the requirements of interna
tional law. It could not be stopped
and searched, and, the allies assert,
must bt regarded as an enemy war
ship . subject to destruction upon
sight. '.. .
Rubber and Nickel,
i Inasmuch as rubber and nickel are
being imported to the United States
tinder private agreements by the pur-
chasers that they shall not reach the
central powers, British authorities are
beginning to investigate how . the
large quantity of those materials pil
ed up at the Oeutschland's pier got
into the hands of German agents.
The State department,' it was of
, ficially declared, will not concern It
. self with reported objections by Ca
' nadian nickel interests to exportation
of nickel on the Deutschland. Agree
ments of American purchasers of Ca
nadian nickel not to re-export the
metal Acting Secretary Polk explain
ed, was purely private and no resort
could be had to the state department
to interfere with nickel shipments on
the German super-submarine.
Naval Officers Inspect Ship.
Baltimore,. July 11. American
naval officers, detailed by the Navy
department' to determine the status of
the German submarine Deutschland,
went aboard the craft today. Captain
, Paul Koenig,- commander of the
Deutschland, was sot there to receive
them, but they were shown through
the vessel by a marine superintend
ent of ' the North German - Lloyd
line, with its commander's permission.
Tha. work of unloading the cargo
of the Deutschland began . shortly
after 9 o'clock. The cases of dye
stuffs were stored inside the ware
house at the base, of the pier.
An emphatic statement was made
fcv Henry G, Hitken of the firm which
represents tha Deutschland's owners,
that under no circumstances will any
passengers i be carried on the sub
marine on its return trip.. He said
provision was made only tor the crew
and that it would be impossible to
take any Others. Two applicants for
passage, are said to have Offered
$5,000 each. - . -
Captain Koenig today made a state
ment to the customs officials that he
expected to get away within ten days.
He had been told that if hi remained
longer than two weeks, the Deutsch
land's wireless would be sealed up.

think of any one class of persons,
when Miss Vernon, who was in the
stand directly behind him, rose and
said in shrill voice: .

Russian Iron Proves to Be
; . Stronger Than German Steel
Petrograd (Via London), July 11.
A dispatch to the Russlty Slovo from
southwestern headquarters says:
"When news of the rolling up of the
Austrian fourth army and the forcing
of the defences of Lutsk was received
in Berlin the emperor ordered the im
mediate dispatch thither of the best
available forces of the strategical re
serves in France. The first troops
sent to Support the Austrians were the
Tenth Imperial corps, Including the
Twentieth Brunswick, the so-called
'steel division,' concerning whose
prowess numerous legends have
arisen in Germany. I
"The corps reached Vladimir
Volynski and was hurled next day
against General Kaledine's army. The
collision occurred at Kiselin, half way
between ' Vladimir-Volynskl and
Lutsk. The onslaught of the German
steel division was met by a Russian
division which in the earlier stages of
the war won the name- of the Iron
division. Advancing to the attack, the
Germans fired tens of thousands of
shells m an uninterrupted cannonade
for four days and nights; then
charge followed charge and one after
another broke. Russian iron was
proof against German steel. '
"During a short lull on the evening
of the second day the Germans dis
played signboards above their
trenches bearing the inscription,
.'Your Kusian iron is no worse than
the German steel, but all the ssme, we
shall smash you.' ,
"The Russians retorted, 'Come on
and try.' . ,
"The Brunswicks resumed ' their
charges throughout the day and night,
but next morning the Russians sud
denly delivered a smashing counter
attack at an unexpected point and
overthrew two battalions, capturing
a number of cannon and machine
"After the forty-second attack the
remnants of the steel division were
withdrawn and are now at Vladimir
Volynski, ' awaiting reorganization.
The corps in four days' fighting lost
three-quarters of its officers and half
its men. The Russian losses also

negotiate a mere seventy-five miles
an hour in the eliminations. Far be
it from such. For upon the speed
made in the eliminationi depends

Only sixteen cart will be allowed
to take the track in the 150-mile
derby. There are twenty-three cars
entered. Thus seven cart must be
eliminated. And it will be the seven
slow cars which will be forced out
In addition position at the start of
the race depends upon the speed. The
car turning the fastest lap will be
awarded the pole, the seconnd fastest
car second position and so on down
the scale to the sixteenth car which
will bring up in the rear.
