j OMAHA'S HELP PROMISED
C('Bnsiness interest! of Council Bluffs
Jara unanimously in favor of a free
I r bridge tcross the Missouri river, and
I will co-operate heartily with Omaha
; to bring it about
The aentiment was evidenced in
"two meetings held yesterday in the
Bluffs at which definite action was
;-fcn-ln the afternoon a committee of
istx members of the Omaha Commer
' cial club met the special committee
L appointed by the Chamber of Com
j,; merce and bela a conference. The
. time was ' devoted entirely to , the
4 formation of plans for getting the
i bridge. Arrangements were made
'for a joint session of the Douglas
' county commissioners and the Pot
'.tawattamie county Board of Super
, visors, whose duty it will be to sub
Onit the proposition of voting county
bonds in the respective counties this
Confer Again Next Week.
tThis conference will be held at the
i Council Bluffs Chamber of Com-
? merce building next Tuesday after
noon at 2 o'clock. The joint eommit
tjee of the two organizations will also
be present and take part The con
ference will be a public affair and
will be largely attended by Council
i, Bluffs and Omaha business men, .
- ;j The second meeting was held last
,Svening. It was a general member
i ship meeting, held In the Chamber of
1 1 Commerce .building, originally called
i for the purpose of making some
II changes in the constitution and by
j laws of the organisation, but the con-
sideration of the free bridge matter
If took a prominent place. I', was clearly
i realiaed that the only campaign work
I to be done related to arousing i
friendly interest m the bond proposal,
, especially ia the east .end of the
livfcounty. It was suggested that the
number ox auiomoDiics now in me
county should be sufficient to create
ia favorable attitude toward the bond
f issue that will insure a majority vote.
v, Question of toeatJon. "
y The Question of the location of the
free bridge was brought up and all
S doubt set at reel about the possibility
'of having it placed somewhere in the
f'-vicinity of the present street railway
bridge, ; Former Alderman Boyer
quoted Judge Smith and others, point
ing out that the matter of location
!' Mixit with the secretary of war and
! ingress.. The secreUry of war could

f: The character of the bridge to be
i built and the material to be used were
not discussed last night, neither was
; the proportion of the cost to be borne

Captain Hinioh of the German

Norfolk, Va., Aug. , 3.-The allied
cruisers patrolling the entrance to
Hampton Roads to prevent the de-
Earture of the German submarine
eutschland still were In position
.within sight of shore during today,
and there was nothing to indicate that
they were aware of the passage of
the Deutschiand out through the capes
last night Marine men here believed
the submersible had entirely eluded
the war vessels and was safety on its
way across the Atlantic on its returns
voyage to Oermany.
Captain Hinsch of the war-bound
German liner Neckar, who, on board
the tug Thomas K. Timmins, directed
the departure of the Deutschiand,
said today that the aubsea passed un
noticed within 100 yards of a United
States destroyer on 'neutrality duty
about a mile off the capes. . He also
disclosed that the submarine sub
merged twice on its way 'down the
bay to test its engines. - .
Hinsch Tells the Story. , ; ,
"When we tm to a stop at a
point in the bay,, which I shall not
disclose because we probably shall'
have to use the place again," ssid
Captain Hinsch, "the pilot aboard the
submarine was taken off. It was then
about 5 o'clock in the evening. The
submarine was submerged so that its
machinery and pumps could be tested
and the cargo trimmed should that
be necessary. The boat went down
in a deep hole in the bay to a depth
of US feet, remaining there for some
"When it came to the surface again
Captain Koenig came up through the
conning towrr and said that every
thing was working ' perfectly. " We
started off down the bay and when
no traffic was in sight the Deutsch
iand took another dive while running.
It went down until four inches of its
periscope was , showing above , the

see at what distance .the wake of the
Deutschiand or the foam crest of
the periscope could be seen. At 400
yards with glasses I could not see a
- - In Perfect Condition.
'The tests having proved that the
Deutschiand was in perfect condition
we went into a place to hide for a
while. We were well hidden, too.
Anyone would have had great diffi
culty in finding us.
"In the afternoon we started for the
capes and you know how the better
part of the trip was made. The de
stroyers were passed in the dark. As
soon as the men on the bridge sighted
the lights of the Timmins they
watched us closely and looked all
around for the submarine, which
passed them at a distance of only 100
yards. At the time the submarine
was submerged until its decks were
, "Later, when I reported to the de
stroyer that the Deutschiand had
cleared the capes and was on its way
to sea, the officers aboard seemed
most surprised. They had not ob
served it at all. - So you see that the
British and French cruisers off shore
hadn't the slightest chance of find
ing the Deutschiand." ,
Heart Order to. Dive.
Captain Hinsch added that after the
officers and members of the crew had
given three cheers for America, he
heard Captain Koenig give the order,
Reading from left to right, the
twins are as follows: Frankie and
Albert Janak, Helen and Ellen Gerst
lauer, Walter and Wade White, Sarah
Bell and Violet McGowan, Joan and
Jane Shearer, Doris and Dorothy
Heintze, Naomi-Elaine and Ruth
"diving stations." At that time the
vessels were about a mile off the
capes. The submarine increased its
speed and the men aboard the Tim
mins, which hsd stopped, watched it
as it sped for the open sea. A mile
away all lights suddenly disappeared.
Captain Hinsch said he knew the
vessel submerged at that time, when
a mile inside the three-mile limit. He
added it would be unwise for him to
disclose whether the vessel went up
or down the coast before striking out
to sea, or whether it took an easterly
course straight out.
Captain Hinsch returned to Balti
more tonight leaving the Timmins in
Norfolk with instructions to pick up
a tow for Baltimore if one could be
secured within a day or' two.
