CREEK FORT IS CAPTURED:
Washington, Aug. 26. Admiral
Helm's submarine flotilla, which lias
already sustained severe losses, was
the only portion of the defending fleet
remaining to contest the landing.
The annihilation of trie defending
feet was reported to the Navy depart
ment in the following wireless mes
sage from the chief umpire:
"Discontinued battleship engage

Other messages showed that Rear
Admiral Helm's battle squadron,
steaming in column formation, struck
the hostile column at right angles.
The leading defending battleships
were forced to bear off, paralleling
the Red column to avoid collision.
As each defending rhip rounded the
turn, the fire of half of Admiral
Mayo's ships was concentrated upon
it, duplicating the incident in the re
cent North sea battle, in which sev
eral battle cruisers were sunk. The
umpires ruled that the blue battle
ships had met the same fate and or
dered action discontinued.
The red transports then moved in
toward the southern end of Long
Island to effect a landing, with the
ajortty of red battle tleet still m-
act to meet the submarine assault.
Later dispatches to tha Navy de
partment announced that the defend
ing submarines had failed to stop the
transport, tnat tne theoretical in
vasion of New ork by a foreign foe
wa? accomplished and that the war
Srame was over.

Berlin. Aug. 26. (By Wireless to
Sayville.) The charge that the
French have an organized force
whose duty it is to exterminate all
the Germans found in captured
trenches, is made in a statement is
sued today by the Overseas News
'"The French some time ago," says
the statement, "introduced a new
fighting system, which is the most
cowardly and flagrant violation of
the laws of war developed up to this

tact, not known until now. that with

Final Round in
Fight for Texas
Dallas, Tex., Aug. 26. At least 60
per cent of tlje voting strength of
Texas, wfiich numbers about 500,000,
was expected to be polled today in
the run-off primary between Senator
Charles A. Culberson, incumbent, ana
former Governor Oscar B. Colquitt,
for the democratic United State:; sen
atorial nomination. These candidates
received pluralitiees in the primary
of July 22, Colquitt's lead over his
nearest competitor being 31.000.
The question of endorsement of
the national democratic Mexican pol
icy was one of the issues in the race.
Former Governor Colquitt's excep
tions to President Wilson's adminis
tration of Mexican affairs have been
cited as evidence of his alleged dis
cord with the present executive.

Priest, Beaten by
Chicago, Aug. 26. Rev. Ignatus
Tomazin, 70 year's old, who resigned
his pastorate of a church in Albany,
Minn., a month" ago after his parish
ioners arc alleged to have attacked
and beaten him, jumped to his death
from the sixth floor of a hotel here
Miss Martha McCluskey, for six
teen years a housekeeper for the aged
priest, said she believed Rev. Mr.
Tomazin committed suicide while
brooding over his church affairs.
"Rev. Mr. Tomazin had trouble
with his parishioners for five years
since he took charge of the church,"
she said. "One night three of the
parishioners came to Father Toma
zin's house and beat him. That
caused him to resign. It broke his
heart, I think."
Miss McCluskey, who is middle
aged, was asleep in another part of
the hotel when the priest's lifeless
body was found.
