THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE; JULY 16, 1916.
SUBSEA IS DECLARED
State Department Says Its
Ruling Shall Hot Cover
EACH MUST STAND ALONE
Washington, July 15. The State
department formally ruled today that
. the German submarine Deutschland ii
t a merchant vessel and entitled to
( treatment as such.
In announcing the ruling Acting
Secretary Polk aid it was not to be
taken, as a precedent and that any
similar cases arising in the future
would be dealt with on their merits.
"In view of the facts of this particu-
lar case,' said Mr. Polk, "there is no
t reason why the Deutschland should
be considered a war vessel." '.
' The department's action was based
" upon reports of nary and customs of
ficers who examined the submarine
v a: Baltimore and found 'that it was
unarmed and incapable of being con
' verted for warlike purposes without
' extensive structural changes. An ad
visory report from the neutrality
board, to which the case was referred
informally by Mr. Polk, held that the
.. vessel should be accorded all the
privileges of a peaceful commerce car
t rier. , .
Now that the status of the vessl has
been fixed, to far -at the American
government it concerned, every pos
' sible effort will be made to prevent
- newt of its movements in territorial
waten of the United States from
j reaching the allied warships which
, may be waiting oS the Virginia coast
Mrs. Marshall Visit! Ship.
Baltimore, Md., July IS. Mrt.
Thomas R. Marshall, wife of the vice
' president, visited the German subma

man steamship Neckar, which is lying
alongside the submersible. Captain
Hinsch taid Mrs. Marshall wat the
. first woman to go below the deck
; tince the Deutschland arrived in
American waters. Captain Hintch
: said the temperature of the interior
of the submarine was about HO de
grees while Mrs. Marshall wat ex-
Stevedores continued today to load
. the Deutschland't return cargo of
j crude rubber and nickel.

You know I have teven photOKrapht
of Eddie, I taw him speeding around
just before the accident and I thought

driver. I asked him why he drived

go at 100 miles an hour and yon have
an accident it is just biff and you're
dead.' I thought it wat biff with Ed

The soectator thought he would

opposite the point where the car left
the track and where it landed iuu leer
Lee Metcalfe was directly opposite
when the machine stopped and went
to piecet. He taid he just shut his
eyes and it was all over. As a matter
of fact the whole affair was over in
less time than it takes to tell it And
the strange part of it was how
Franchi got out of the fray without
being dashed to instant death.
A few minutes after the Franchi ac
cident a cloud of dust below the east
turn wat the tignal for another
stretchintr of neckt. The ambulance
and fire wagon rushed along the dirt

GZXMAK8 LOSE BALLOOtfS
Dompierre, Picardy, July 15. (Via
London.) A ttring of great balloons
you can count sixteen without
glasses is the first obvious thing that
a reporter sees on this front Next
his eyet wander to the uncountable
batteriet in action. Above them the
aerial telephone stations swing be
yond the trajectory of the German
On the German side, not a single
balloon is visible. Fifteen have been
burned in the air by a secret contriv
ance, known only to the allies, since
the offensive began. The German
artillery is 'blinded because the allies
have now obtained the mastery of the
air, according to the confident claims
of the British and French officer!. It
is true, that from this point of view, a
German aeroplane is rarely sighted,
while French aviators are constantly
on the wing.
A dramatic and startling novelty
has been presented by the allied avia
tors in this great offensive.
French and British airmen have
actually co-operated in the infantry
charges. They have swept over the
battle field at as low an altitude as
600 feet and some of the more daring
swooped over the struggling armies
at as low a heighth as 300 feet.
These airmen have Hgnalled to the
French artillery telephones the pre
cise position of the German guns and
the location ot the Uerman torces
waiting for the French assault. They
have taken great risks of being hit
by shells from their own guns, but, ac
cording to the officers, everyone es
lhe trench have developed on a
great scale their aerial torpedoes,
which are charged with a higher ex
plosive than the large-calibered shells.
These torpedoes can be hurled half
a mile and fired with such rapidity
that a second will leave the ejector
while the first is still in the air.
Scarcely More Than Name.
The village of Dompierre is scarce
ly more than a name.. The resistance
made by the Germans here, as in all
the other villages in the neighborhood
seems to have been most tenacious.
In the cemetery the vaults were
used as ,bomb, proofs and the cement
and' iron 'railings around the graves
as barricades. The French concen
trated their gunfire on the cemetary
at Curlu for half an hour before the
obstinate defense of the Germans was
crushed. They used shrapnel shells,
which filled the air with curious
green, opalescent vapors.
Une ot the dramatic episodes oi
the fighting was the storming of a
cliff known as the Gendarme's Hat,
which formed the tide of an old
quarry. The Frenchmen reached the
top and halted in the sunlight, wav
ing their helmets and handkerchiefs
and cheering madly.
Reorganized, the defenses In the
occupied territory is a vas.trengjneei'

erous solid roads are built. across the
country and the ring of haferijier on
metal can be heard in theffttstervals
of artillery fire. The whoje jepon
is busy 'with preparations forjholding
the newly won German ground and
for moving forward. The controlling
mind of all this is General Marie
Emile Fayolle, an elderly artillery
commander,- who had been 'retired
two years before the war began.
