HOW FRENCH MEET
Minister of Marine Says Pa
trol Boats, Seaplanes, Nets,
Mines and Smoke
Paris, Friday, May 25. (Delayed.)
Rear Admiral Lacaze, the minister
of marine, outlined the means of de
fense France had adopted against the
undersea boats in the Chamber of
"I lee no reason why I should not
speak of these methods," said Admiral
Lacaze. "It would be childish to
think they are unknown to the enemy.
They consist of a system of patrol
boats, of arming merchantmen and
fittine- them with wireless, of lea-
planes, nets, mines, smoke raising de
vices and dragnets."
The minister said that France had
SS2 patrol boats in service and expect
ed to increase the number to vuu. tie
also said the eovernment had 1.200
dragnets, 170,500 curtain nets and
5,000 twenty-foot float nets, which in
dicate the presence of submarines.
Discussing the use ot airplanes, ne
"We have organiaed seaplane posts
alt around the coasts so that the zone
of action of each post joins that of its
neighbor on either side. We also
have apecial bombs for submarines
and apparatus to throw them.
"The guns we mounted on the pa
trol boats have been referred to dis
dainfully, but you cannot put ten cen
timetre guns on a imall vessel. A pa
trol boat on gurd, armed with ninety
five millimetre guns, met two subma
rines srmed with 105 millimetre guns,
sank one and put the other to flight,"

as to what he will charge against Cap
tain Maloney, but insists that he will
present the evidence at a hearing be
fore the city commissioners.
Commissioner Kugel is expected to
return next week. The charges of
Chief Dunn will be presented to the
council Tuesday morning and a date
for hearing them will be set.
Captain Maloney still insists he had
nothing to do with the Chadron case.
"I am not connected with the Chad
ron case in any way and I welcome
an investigation by the chief of police.
Chief of Detectives Maloney said.
"Any city employe found mixed up in
the affair' is not fit to represent the
taxpayers and should be dismissed."
Ben Baker said yesterday afternoon
that he did not know whether he will
have the defendants waive the pre
liminary hearing or. not. He said:
"You can say tor me positively,
however that all the defendants will
be at Chadron May 31, when the hear

that nobody knows."
No Record of Leave.
The records of Chief of Police
Dunn's office do not show that De
tective Paul Sutton was granted a
leave of absence two-weeks ago when
he went to Chadron, Neb., to work
on a case which developed into a sen
sational affair. '
Sutton has been away from his du
ties as Omaha detective two weeks.
Chief Dunn was asked about the mat
ter. He said:
"It is customary for a member of
the police department to fill out an
application blank when intending to
take a leave of absence. My office had
no knowledge: of Sutton's absence ex
cept as we read in the newspapers. I
don't know who authorized Sutton to
leave his work and go to Chadron. i
know that in other instances the men
are granted their leaves through the
regular channels and this office is
given a record."
According to the rules of the police
department, Detective Sutton has been
absent two weeks without leave.
