train carrying Charles E. Hughes,
on his third western trip, was stopped
by a broken rail on tne point ot a
curve around a steep embankment
of the Big Sandy river leaving Paihts-

Section hands discovered the break
a few minutes before the special was

to the mountains of Kentucky and

no presidential nominee has ever vis

Amreican sentiment which demands

"That does not mean a policy of

necessarily favor war. That, to my

sinking of. the Bloomersdijk will be
upheld by the German government,'
said Minister of Foreign Affairs Lou
don, to a representatives of the Asso-
cia.icu rrcss inis aucrnopn. .. iw-ii
! MinisierTbudon, after having re
ceived i report oh the case fronl Hie
minister of The Netherlands govern-
thent in Washington, was about to
dispatch a note to Berlin, which in
the customary diplomatic terms asked
for ah explanation for the sinking of
this grain ship in the Atlantic off the
New England coast during the Ger
man submarine operations! of last
Sunday. He said he could not ex
plain the act other than it was com
mitted in a misinterpretation of or
ders by a hot-headed submarine com
mander (flagrant examples of such
action, he noted, having occurred be
fore), who, having ascertained that
the cargo was grain and that the ship
would touch at Kirkwall, had sent
it to the bottom without heeding the
fact that the grain was consigned to
the Dutch government.
"If Admiral Von Tirpitz had been
at the head of affairs in Germany it
would be understandable," added the
foreign minister, "but I do not be
lieve it of Chancellor Von Bethmann
Hollwcg and 1 fully expect, nay I am
sure, that Germany will disavow the
act of its commander and tender re
paration for this unjustifiable act."
Of Greek Affairs
Paris, Oct. 12. Details of the de
mands made on the Greek govern
ment by Admiral D'Artige du Four
net, commander of the allied naval
forces at Piraeus, which have been
made public here, show that the ulti
matum was much more comprehen
sive than was understood at first.
In addition to its fleet, Greece was
required to permit allied control of
all material for naval operations as
veil as the mails, telegraph and rail
roads. The ultimatum set forth that
such control was necessary in order
to render impossible the use of the
navy, railroads and so forth to the
detriment of the allies.
Admiral du Fournet gave the Greek
government until 1 o'clock Wednes
day afternoon to comply with his de
mands and stated that failure to do
so would result in his taking the
necessary steps himself.

GUMSHOE INTRIGUE SHOWN
New York Oct. 12. (Special Tel
egram.) In a signed statement yes
terday Victor Ridder of the New
York Staats-Zeitung ( denies abso
lutely the story made public ty 'Nor-
inan Jiapgqod ,Pf jiVQC, Wilson Inde
pendent legue, to the effect that ifr,
Ridder" had told Statt Senator Kellor
of Illinois that he had written i tarn
paigit speech fof Mr. Hughes, , in
which Mr. Hughes would ; attadk
England in order to hold the German
vote. Mrt Ridder savs there was a
meeting between himself and Senator
Kellor, but that, knowing Mr. Kellor,
he had witnesses present and he has
the Written statement of one of these
witnesses, Mr. Henr Abeles of New
York, that no such remarks as are
credited to him by Mr. Kellor and
Hapgoed were ever made.
- Instead, Mr. Kellor endeavored to
persuade Mr. Ridder to call on Presi
dent Wilson at the White House and
assured Mr. Ridder that Mr. Wilson
"can convince you in the course of in
hour or two that he is friendly to
Germany." Mr. Ridder declares that
Mr. Kellor "for his own purposes wil
fully placed words in my mouth which
were never spoken.
Ridder Tells Story.
Having disposed of this canard, Mr.
Ridder goes on to make some ex
tremely interesting disclosures con
cerning the efforts of the Wilson ad
ministration to curry favor secretly
with the German-American voters,
whom Wilson publicly brands as dis
loyal. He says: Mr. Abeles hap-
Oed to be present at the meeting
Ii Mr. Kellor, having called as the
bearer of an invitation from Senator
Stone, chairman pf the foreign rela
tions committee of the senate, to dis
cuss the questions of the compaign at
a gathering ot influential German
Americans to be arranged at Terrace
Garden that very evening. I declined
the invitation. Mr. Abeles immedi
ately called up Senator Stone from
the Staats Zeitung office and told him
that I had declined. Senator Stone
then spoke to me, saying that he
would regard it as a personal favor
for me not only to come myself, but
also to bring influential German
Americans with me.
"Under the circumstances I felt that
we should at least hear what
Senator Stone had to say, and
so a number of us gathered at Ter
race Garden for dinner at 8 o'clock on
September 16 as the guests of Mr,
Abeles. Senator Stone used all his
well known powers of persuasion
and I am ready to concede him the
palm as an able advocate of the ad
ministration to convince us that ap
parent anti-Gefman-American poli
cies of the Wilson administration
were only for public consumption, and
that privately they were ready to
work hand in glove with the German
Wanted German Votes.
"The whole object of this confer
ence so far as Senator Stone was con-
cerued was to find out what action
was necessSry on the part of the ad
ministration in oracr to secure tne
support of German-Americans at the
coming election. Can anything be
more humiliating than the spectacle
of the chairman of the foreign re
lations coniniittee of the senate, gum
shoeing in a small room of a Third
avenue beer' garden, bartering for the
votes which the president from the

PREVENT SECRET BASES
Washington, Oct. 12. The whole
submarine situation, both as to the
recent raid on the New England
coast and the broader question of a -campaign
in Germany for a ruthless
resumption of th warfare shows
signs in official quarters of having
practically clcaVcd up. ',-;
No new developments are reported
and no new disturbing information
has come to the State department, ac
cording to officials, to change the de
cision arrived at by President Wilson
and Secretary Lansing.
: While no immediate steps ars in
contemplation for the actual estrb
lishment of a naval neutrality patrol .
along the Atlantic coast as a result
of the German submarine raid, the
Navy department has completed a
definite, plan to be put into opera
tion if the campaign continues.
' Destroyer Force Active.
The entire destroyer force, sctive
and reserve, assisted by light eruis- -ers,
havy tugs and other auxiliary
craft, will be employed to protect
American territorial waters and also
to prevent the establishment of any
secret bases ashore or communication
between shore radio stations and bel
ligerent craft. i ,
- The - proposal of mobilizing the
force of privately owned motor boats
along the coast which have been en
rolled with their crews as a part of
the naval reserve was first consid
ered, but various obstacles were en
countered. . v
-j Officers to Reserve Ships.
Naval militia officers snd men si
ready have been assigned to reserve
ships for service if necessary. ' -i
Indication that an American naval
patrol has been placed on duty along;
the north- Atlantic coast was given
today when Captain McDonald of tha
steamship -Munamar, in New York
from Cuban ports, : reported that off
the Jersey coast about 6 o'clock this
morning an- AmertcnM"cTesCroyei'

McDonald said that he broke out the
national colors and the destroyer im
