ment worked over Heiberger for two
hours with no success. He was picked
up half a mile from shore, too much
exhausted to recuperate. -i
The name of Seaman W. L. Daniel
was given out by naval authorities as
among the dead. Late in the day
Daniel, who had overstayed his leave,
appeared on the wharf. .
Seriously injured:

The launch, putting off crowded
with men returning from shore leave,
was swept by the tide under the stern
wheelxot the Apache. The big steel
paddle blade sheared off the stem of
the launch, which sank like a atone,
and every man aboard fended for him

. A fleet of small boats .was tushed
to tbetenft and began 'tricking up

Row, a mile away, rushed its launches
to the rescue and picked up the first
body. , . ! . -

to the harbor emergency hospital
All the others went to the Glacier. :
The accident occurred almost in the
path of the Trans-bay ferry boats
bringing thousands of commuters to
San Francisco from Oakland, Berke
ley and Alameda. These were first
aware of it when a little cloud of sea
going tugs and launches scattered
from the piers allotted to various tow
ing companies and clustered around
the Apache. To the fact that these
craft were so near at hand was attrib
uted the remarkably small loss of life
as contrasted with ail upset in New
York harbor some years ago.
The launch, in charge of Bob Rob
erts, coxwain, put out from the slip
between piers 14 and 16. At pier 14
lay naval water barge 25. At pier 16
was the Apach just docking. The
space between was small, but Roberts
considered it ample, and headed the
launch midway between the two big

piers the tide caught, it and
swept it against the stern of the river
The Apache's wheel was reversed
and revolving slowly. Before Roberts
could twist his wheel the launch was

Berlin Hints Britannic Was
Used for Transport Work
London, Nov. 25. A virtual dis
avowal that a German submarine had
anything to do with the sinking of
the British ship Britannic in the
Aegean Sea is contained in a wireless
dispatch received today from Berlin,
which reads:
"According to the reports so far at
hand the Britannic was proceeding
from England to Saloniki. For a jour
nev in this direction trip liri,. nmni,..
of persons on board was extraordi
narily striking and justifies a strong
suspicion of the misuse of a hospital
ship for transport purposes:
"Inasmuch as the ship bore the
distinguishing marks of a hospital
ship in accordance with regulations
there can naturally be no question of
a German submarine in connection
with the sinking."

Three Cold Storage Ware
houses Attacked in War
Against High Cost of
"I've Got Them; What Are You
Going to Do About It?"
Stirs Row.
Chicago, Chicago, Nov. 25. War
against the high cost of living became
militant here today with simultaneous
raids by the city health department
against three of the largest cold stor
age warehouses in the citv. The raids
werebased on a city ordinance, long
ignored, which places a restriction on
the time foods may be kent in cold
storage and were due partly, it was
said, to James wetz. a wholesaler, so-
called "egg king," who is said to be
holding 72,000,000 eggs.
"I've got them. What are vou go
ing to do about it?" was the answer
Wetz gave to investigators who
sought to discover what quantity of
loodstutts was m storage in the pres
ent time of high prices.
Millions Put Away.
The ordinance prohibits the storage
of eggs for more than ten months.
Examination showed that many mil
lions, including many stored by Wetz,
were put away in March and April.
"We will be obliged to throw these
on the market by January 21," said
Dr. John JD. Kobertson, health com
missioner, "and my advice to the peo
ple is to stop using eggs until lie be
gins to market them. I will see that
they are not held in cold storage a
minute longer than ten months, and
that when they go on the market
they are tit for consumption.
Women of the Political Equality
league adopted a resolution today de
claring that "eggs at 50c a dozen are
prohibitive" and agreeing to buy none
at that price.
Explains the Rise.
The Wgh price of eggs is the result
of general prosperity which has in
duced extraordinary consumption to
gether -with a shortage of production
according to a statement by the Chi
cago Butter and Eggs board, which
announced that it would welcome any
investigation into its manner of ar
riving at prices.

posit, he told Chief Inspector Faurot
today. .

as I was in debt to the extent of $700,"
the inspector quoted Daggett as say
,ing. My salary was not a large one.
I am getting only $1,700 a year and 1
found it hard to live on that amount
and keep up with the living at I.arch
mont. I was tempted many times Io
put the jewelry back, but 1 held it for
some time waiting to see who owned
it, and when no one put in a claim that
it was lost, I decided to gel a loan on
some of it."

The official statement adds:

London, Nov. 25. The process of

proceeding with notable rapidity.
Pushing eastward after their capture
of Craiova and the conquest cf Little

the Roumanians had retreated. , A
crossing of the Alt in this region is
reported by Berlin. ' -
- Concurrently, Field Marshal von
Mackensen, operatiu the other jaw

sage of the Danube near Zintnitza,
giving him a footing on Roumanian
soil twenty-five miles in the rear of
the Danube end of the Alt line, which
touches the river near Turnu Magu
