Orderly on French Cruiser,
Now at Pensaoola, Says
Wireless Received Sub

CAPTAIN DENIES BTJM0R
British Patrol Boat Made Claim
It Hit Boat While Sub-merging.
MARINE MEN DOUBT STORY
Pentacola, Fla., Aug. 13. An or
derly of Captain Lique, commanding
the French armored cruiser Admiral
Aube, asserted here yesterday that
last Tuesday, August 8, the cruiser re
ceived a wireless message from a
British patrol boat in the Atlantic
saying it iad sunk the German tub
marine Deutschland that morning.
Captain Lique tonight asserted he had
received no information whatever
about the Deutschland.
According to the orderly, the radio
dispatch told how the submarine was
sighted while running on the surface
at night, and was sent to the bottom
just at it attempted to submerge at
The Admiral Aube, an imposing'
looking four-funneled craft, steamed
into Pensacoia harbor today and
dropped anchor. It is the first allied
warship to enter an American port
since the war began, and the event
caused a flurry of excited curiosity
along the water front.
Came After Documents.
Captain Liqud informed the col
lector of the port that he had come
solely to get some important docu
ments from the French consul here,
and that lie would go to sea again
tomorrow morning. Until he landed
and went to the customs house it
had been understood that he lad
run short of supplies.
To the collector's suggestion that
lie might take on coal and supplies
sufficient to make his nearest home
port, the captain replied that his
stores were ample and that he would
leave early tomorrow.
" i he French consul has some very
important papers which I desired,
said Captain Lique. "I came up from
Martinique, and inasmuch as I had
been cruising in the gulf for the last
ten. days, 1 decided to come into Pen
sacola and get them," .
May Be on Patrol Duty.
Local shipping men believe the
warship is on patrol duty off the gulf
coast and has been examiningiharbor
entrances to ascertain if a German
submarine" could enter any of the gulf
ports. For the last ten days the
crewt of German and Austrian mer
chant ships laid up here have been
telling German sympathizers that the
Bremen, the Deutschland's sister ship,
had selected Pensacola as its port of
entry and that allied warships were
on Hhe outlook.
French consul Howe tpent a few
minutes aboard the cruiser soon after
it arrived and returned to the city.
Half an hour later he returned, pre
sumably to deliver the documents to
the French officer. The consul taid
he did not know their contents.
Lieutenant Barnes of the United
States destroyer Roe went aboard the
Admiral Aube and was joined mere
bv officers from the United States
aviation y station at Fort Barrancas.
There was a conference lasting half
. It was learned that the cruiser left
Martiniaue two weeks ago, and hat
about forty German prisoners aboard,
some of whom were captured several
months ago. ;

servers last night were not inclined
to credit the French orderly ttory that
a British patrol boat had tunic the

August 8 the submarine wat six dayt
on itt return journey to Germany,
and that unless - it had machinery
troubles it would have been far out
in the Atlantic on that date.

that the Deutschland could submerge
in one minute's time and that a ship
could not have followed for any
length of time at night without ad
vertising "its presence by using a
Nothing hat been heard here from
the Deutschland since August 2. It

thorough and rigid investigation be
made. He set forth that the price of

more foe the money than S-cent loaves
at S cents, due to economy in produc

of his organization, calling upon party
leaders, and was most enthusiastic
ever the way Hughes sentiment is
spreading all over the country.
"Reports from all the states indi
cate a tweeping victory for Hughet,"
said Mr. Brewster, "and the people
generally are only waiting for an op
portunity to protest against the in
competent and vacillating administra

are that it will be carried by the re

"Kentucky and Indiana will be in

In New Jersey we recently held
the state convention, and they prom

''Reports indicate absolutely that
Mr. Wilson will not carry a single

sweep the country."
Huge Bob Cat Shot
By Sand Hill Rancher
Ellsworth, Neb., Aug. 13. (Spe
cial.) One of the biggest bob cats, '
or bay lynx, that has ever been seen
in the sand hills was shot today by j
Carl Townsend on hit ranch, seven
miles south of here. Mr. Townsend;
and his family were out in the al-
falfa field, with one of the his sons i
a little apart from the rest, when
he noticed some object bobbing up
and down in the alfalfa. Upon closer
investigation he discovered what it
was, and that it had a designing eye
on the boy, which distractive noises
could not remove. He had his rifle
handy and with two well-directed
shots all danger was removed.
The animal was m every way ab
normal for its species. It weighed
seventy-five pounds, and when held
straight out by the nape of the neck
by an average- size man its feet
touched the ground.

With the German army in France
(Via Berlin, Aug. 12, to London.)
East of the Somme, with the French
guns roaring a morning salute and
the German cannon thundering their
reply, the German emperor today un
expectedly appeared in a little village
Just behind the front and reviewed
a hastily improvised parade and de
corated a number, of officers and sol
diers. He addressed the men briefly
and was then whisked on to the most
The cmperor't visit wat known
only to a few oiVicers the previous
evening and came at a turprise to
the troops, who were obviously over
joyed that the emperor could find
time to come to them. The visit in
addition surprised a small group of
correspondent! who had just returned
from an inspection of the advanced
positions, and who had an opportun
ity to tee the emperor at Novogeor
gievsk, a few miles northwest of War
saw, almost precisely a year ago), '
Notwithstanding1 the heavy fog,
that generally prevails in the early
morning in this section, the emperor's
visit had something . brilliant 'and
dramatic in it. Upon a broad level
of plain flanked by a picturesque
French chateu, all- the troops in the
immediate neighborhood collected.
The uniforms were of field gray, but
the attireo r officers and men was,
nevertheless, so far as possible gala,
and the more striking as a majority
of the soldiers wore their new steel
helmets. The officers had discarded
their monotonous fatigue caps and
had donned peace time headgear, to
that the picturesque gray fur head
piece! o( the death head hussars con
trasted with the helmets of cuiras
siers, and the mortar-board caps worn
by the uhlans.
Kaiser Arrive! Early,
thii The emperor arrivejl at 9:30
o'clock, hit suite, including Prince
Eitel, one noted admiral and several
generals. The , troops htd been drawn
up in a hollow square formation, and
Hit Majesty looking trim and fit,
though perhaps somewhat weary,
quickly passed in review shaking
hands here and there with officeta
he knew personally and repeatedly
saluting the soldiers who ttodd at
"present arms" as stiffly and correctly
as in any parade in Ueriin.
The officer in command of the regl
meats inspected by the emperor then
delivered a brief address, in which he
assured hit majesty in the name of
the troopt that all were prepared to
fight on indefinitely for the emperor't
and the, country ! sake. A hoch
that must have beefi heard in the
French lines went up before the em
peror could answer. Then he spoke
in clear ringing voice, thanking the
Hit Majesty Smllea.
In the center of the hollow tquare
the emperor decorated a number of
the officers and eventually, took up
a position on the road leading to the
front trenches, while the regiments,
many of whom were composed of
new troopt, marched by in the famous
goose step, The correspondent!
stood only a few ayrdi distant and
was able to notf the seemingly re
markable physical condition of the
emperor, who in reviewing the troops,
stood moreerect and stitier than the
youngest subaltern, and, with a
glance of approval or a slight frown,
indicated his pleasure or displeasure.
In fariness to the troops it should
be laid that hit majesty smiled most
of the time.
The emperor required upward of
an hour to review the troopt and
take a trifle of refreshments, and was
then whirled away toward the front
lines at suddenly at he had come.
