BRITISH GUNS INFLICT
ENORMOUS DAMAGE ON
GERMAN U-BOAT HARBOR
Demolish, Sheds In Mole and Blow Up Huge Stores of
Enemy Munitions In Raids On Zeebrugge;
"It's the Americans!" Cry Teutons
Who Flee Posts.
New York, April 24. Not only the mouth of the canal at
Zeebrugge was blocked, but British sailors and marines who
participated in the raid on the German submarine bases believe
that they destroyed every gun in the mole, demolished the sheds
throughout its entire length and blew up large stores of muni
tions contained in the sheds, according to stories given by the
survivors to the correspondent of the New York Times at a.
The German defenders conceived the idea that their as
sailants were Americans, and, according to some of the cur
vivors, this cry was heard :
"It's the Americans! It's the Yankees!"
riTTDTUTAVC BflTT FNMASSV. U-
Some o! the Germans bolted en
masse from the nearest batteries,
leaving their guns to the British.
Until they were within a half mile
of the harbor of Zeebrugge, no ships
in the attacking force had picked up
the light on the mole.
The attacking ship, which started
for the mole followed by muttered
calls of "good luck" from the ships'
companies of the escorting fleet out
side the harbor, had scarcely got
within sight of the light when it was
discovered by the Germans, Star
shells instantly pierced the thick haze,
showing up the cruiser as clearly as
though it had been daylight.
In one second it seemed as if every
battery in the neighborhood had con
centrated its fire on the cruiser. How
she was abie to get ahead none of
those 'watchh.g her understood. Great
17-inch shells and others of smaller
caliber flew around her like hail. She
was apparently hit by some of the
smaller one, but she plugged ahead
snd was seen to turn the corner of
the mole and gain the inside of the
harbor. The German fire apparently
was deflected from her vital parts
by the intervening structure "of the
mole and most cf the damage done
was above the water line.
Land British Bluejackets.
Disregarding all that had happened,
the cruiser went up to the mole and
landed a large party of bluejackets
The guns were destroyed one by
one, while others in the landing party
dealt with the sheds and munition
stores with flame throwers.
Apparently under cover of this
operation, continues the account sent
by tne rsiew oric i lmes corrcspuuu
ent, the concrete-laden cruisers, with
which it wa3 intended to block the
channels, made their way through the
harbor, accompanied, as far as it can
, be ascertained, by only one subma
rine. As they approached the en
trance, they anchored, swung around
on the cables and, according to the
testimony of one of the observers,
were sunk Within 23 minutes.
One of the destroyers, or subma
rines, exoloied a chartre at the crates
of the lock to the Bruges canal and
they are believed to have been de
stroyed. Meanwhile four destroyers
entered the harbor and cruised
around, making observations, but
were unable to take part in the bat
When the attacking ship and its
landing party had completed their
work, the sailors and marines were
taken aboard again, despite the dam
aged condition of the cruiser, which
then began to make its way out of
One of the 17-inch shells out of the
hundreds of various calibers fired at
the cruiser got well home in her up
per works. Her steering gear was
mured and she signaled an escort
ship to show her the way out, but
before help arrived she had found
her way out and taken her place, un
der her own steam, behind the lines
f protecting cruisers.
Germans Self Deceived.
London, April 24. An officer of
one of the motor boats has given the
Daily Mail a story of the blowing up
t the mole.
"The submarine which did it," says
this officer "went at it from the
outerside. The German star shells
helped greatly in showing the way.
We could see about 200 Germans on
the bridge leading from the mole to
the shore. They apparently thought
that the submarine had lost her way
and was rejoicing in the belief that
they were going to trap hef. But
the submarine pushed under the
bridge and when her cargo of ex
plosives was touched off it blew the
bridge and all standing on it into
"For a little time afterward frag
ments of Germans and wreckage
from the bridge were falling all
around us. By the blowing up of the
bridge, the mole was isolated, and it
was on this island that the Vindic

JAP MINISTER OF
Nippon's Role in Siberia Prob
able Cause of Viscount Mo
tono's Withdrawal; Suc
ceeded by Baron Goto.
London, April 24. Viscount Mo
tono, Japanese minister for foreign
affairs has resigned, according to a
Renter dispatch from Tokio.
The question of Japanese interven
tion in Siberia probably led to the
withdrawal of Viscount Ichiro Mo
tono from the foreign ministry, of
which he has been the head since
November, 1916, when Count Ter
auchi formed the present cabinet.
There have been reports recently
that Viscount Motono might resign
in connection with the Siberian situa
tion, but explanations of such
bility were scanty.
Formerly in Russia.
Viscount Motono, who was given
his present title in July, 1916, was
Japanese ambassador to Russia previ
ous to his elevation to the foreign
ministry. Since his graduation from
the University of Lyons, France, he
has been connected with the Jap
anese foreign office and has served
as minister to Belgium and minister
Viscount Motono will be succeeded
by Baron Goto, who has held several
portfolios and is a member of the
national commission appointed last
year for the discussion of Japan's
Germany Issues False Report
About American Aviators
London, April 24. The admiralty
has issued the following:
"In today's German wireless the fol
lowing statement appears:
"'From papers found on American
aviators who were shot down it has
been proved that for their own safety
many of them crossed over on hospital
ships, certified as members of the Am
erican ambulance service in France.'
"The secretary of the admiralty
makes the following statement: 'No
hospital ship, British or American, has
ever carried anybody but invalids and
the necessary medical staff. Further,
there are no hospital ships working on
the cross-channel route. The whole
statement therefore is a fabrication.
The American naval authorities state
that they have some few aviators who
were in the allied ambulance service
in France before the United States
came into the war, but even in 6uch
cases these men crossed the Atlantic
in ordinary ships, taking their full
chance of being torpedoed.'"

Most Unhappy Men
Royal Guard, Who Can't Go to War
Rome, April 24. Among the most
unhappy men in Italy are said to be
the 00 soldiers of the king's guard
who are not permitted to go to the
front and fight like their brothers.
The reason for this restriction is
that these 60 men probably could not
be replaced if killed, injured, or taken
prisoners. They are chosen with the
utmost care, not only as regards their
habits and training, but for their
height, the minimum of which is six
"They begin where other men stop
growing," according to a popular say
ing. Many of them are even seven
feet in height. They are chosen from
the carabinieri or military police and
must have absolutely unstained rec
ords. Each newly enrolled man, if he
accepts the appointment, must agree
to remain in the guard for a term of
five years, after which he may or may
not re-enlist. During that period, also,
he may not marry,
VON STEIN BOASTS GERMANY IS j
STILL AHEAD IN USE OF GAS1
Amsterdam, April 24. Speaking
before the main committe of the
Reichstag yesterday, Lieutenant
General von Stein, Prussian minister
of war and state, said that 20,000 men
wounded in the battle on the western
front have already returned to their
regiments. He inferred from the
small number of Americans captured
that not many Americans had as yet
been sent to the front line.
Gustav Noskc, socialist, said that
the number of Americans on the
western front appeared, according to
the latest reports, not as small as the

How Much Indemnity
Germany Will Win
Berlin, April 24. Speaking on the
first reading of the new taxation
proposals in the Reichstag, Count
von Roedern, secretary of the im
perial treasury, said that 11,000,000,
000 marks of the 14,500,000,000
marks subscribed to the eighth war
loan already had been paid.
"In the forthcoming reconstruction
of the imperial finances that master
piece, the imperial constitution, must
not be fundamentally altered," he
said. "A fundamental taxation divi
sion into direct and indirect taxes
would be premature.
"We don't yet know the amount
of indemnity we shall win.
"Our taxation legislation need not
fear comparison with that of foreign
countries. Great Britain's big taxa
tion achievements show neither a
new basis nor an organic reform.
American war taxes represent
merely random and variation."
in All Italy?
The guards and their horses are
quartered inside the grounds of the
rcyal palace on the Quirinal hill. The
guard does sentinel duty inside these
grounds when King Victor Emmanuel
is in Rome, and also accompany him
on state ' occasions, as on that of
March 14, 1912, when, as the king
was going along the Corso to visit
the tomb of his father in the Pan
theon, the anarchist d'Alba fired twice
and wounded Captain Lang of the
guard instead of the king.
Since the war began, although the
king lives at the front and under
goes all its dangers, members of the
guard are to be seen now and then
walking through the streets of Rome,
attracting attention and admiration
because of their immense figures and
shining helmets, but, for all that,
jealous of the stained and bespattered
gray-green uniforms of soldiers on
leave from the front trenches.
"Our new powder develop car
bonic oxide gas," General von Stein
said. "We organized the employment
of this gas and the enemy soon fol
lowed. "We no a- are manufacturing an in
visible gas. The enemy has not
caught up to us. Our losses through
the effects of gas have been slight.
Our experts have made masks which
give absolutely certain protection.
"No country will agree to renounce
the use of gas. It is therefore neces
cary for our experts to labor con
tinuously to keep us ahead."

Mrs. Hayward is Looking Fine
Since Taking Tanlac
Gains 5 Pounds.
"By the time I finished my first
bottle of Tanlac I had regained five
pounds of my lost weight and was
looking so well that my friends were
surprised and began to ask me what
I was taking," said Mrs. John Hay

"Ever since I had that spell of the

ground right along. I hnd no appe

seemed to do me no good. I fell off
10 pounds and felt so weak and tired
that I was hardly fit for a thing all
day long. I would get so diziy, too,
nt times that I'd almost fall, and after
I went to bed at night I'd get so rest
leas that I could hardly sleep.
"I never was much of a hand to
take advertised medicine, but I felt
that if Tanlac did what others said it
did for them it would help me, too.
Well, it has certainly turned out to
be just what I needed, for it gave
me such a fine appetite that I began
to pick up right from the start and
have kept on improving ever since.
Those dizzy spells have become less
frequent and seldom bother me at all

Use Cocoanut Oil
For Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair, in
good condition, be careful what you
wash it with. '; i
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle, and is
very harmful. Just plain mulsified
cocoanut oil (which is pure and en
tirely greasclesa), is much better than
