shelled by a submarine. The Caro

v Meanwhile, - departmental reports
from naval districts along the Atlan
tic coast showed feverish activity
among the patrol fleets. From all
along the coast armed craft are con
verging on the spot where the enemy
was : last reported. Seaplanes are
strolling the air seeking any trace.
Ivery craft has orders to fire on
aljht . at any suspicious object Al
ready they have pounded floating
wreckage with shot and shell in
search of the foe, leading to reports
of battles at ea from various points.
Persistent reports that one of the
fwo raiders 'reported had been sunk
and the other captured were incircula
tion nearly all (day. The department
had nothing to confirm them.
As the tale of sinkings unfolded,
It became probable that not more
than one or two raiders were at work,
and that the operations for yester
day and today were confined to a
r arrow one off the New Jersey
shore.' Later came the landing of
the men held prisoner for days on
the U-boats and confirmation of pre
vious rumors that three derelict
schooners picked up off the Virginia
capes nearly a week ago had been
wrecked by an enemy submarine.
That disclosed the fact that the enemy
had been lurking 60 or 70 mites off
the coast for probably two weeks at

Mr, Daniels pointed out to members
of the naval committee that the state
nent of the captain of the Cole that

U-boat was the only report indicating 1
that more 4han one raider was off
the coast The close proximity of the
ainkings to each other, with the ex
ception of those several days ago off
"the Virginia capes,, indicating the ac
tivities of a single' submarne, wheh
tas consistently saved its supply of
torpedoes and used only bombs and
Cnn fire so far as known.
Apparently the Germans took care
fa each instance to give the crews a
chance for their lives. Holding men
aboard the raider under the conditions
tat surrounded her was an unusual
Czpltf of humanity, it 'was pointed
out which did not conform to Ger

" TO HAUL FIELD
' GUNS DEVELOPED
Washington, June 3 The latest
production of the army ' ordnance
bureau, a five-ton, armored artillery
tractor for hauling field guns, was
demonstrated here today with Sec
retary Baker, General March, chief
of staff, and many foreign officers
Hooked to a 4.7-inch howitrer,
the machine ran over the rough,
muddy ground of Rock Creek park,
which recently balked the British
tank, Britannia. It went through
ditches and boles without a stop,
cut down trees and climbed over
tbe fallen trunks, dragging the gun
bftind it; climbed a 45-degree hill,
where the mud was a foot deep, as
a result of recent rains, and wound
up the performance by rattling down
a paved avenue at a 12-mile gait,

May Arm Coastwise Ships.
The prince reached the United
States about the time that the three
schooners wrecked off the Virginia
capes were attacked.
As precaution against continued
raiding on the coast the question
of arming all coastwise' shipping was
taken up today. Secretary McAdoo
had the matter under consideration
for railroad vessels under his author
ity. Steps to put guns aboard all
craft may be taken without delay.
Today's news revives speculation
over the fate of the missing naval
collier Cyclops, which has not been
heard from since she sailed from
Azores three months ago. Navy of
fiicials, however, saw no 'clue to the
solution of the mystery in the appear
ance of the submarine raiders, which
probably were in Europe when the
collier disappeared. '

'Experience of Gilmore.
Captain C. M. Gilmore, of the
schooner Edna, said that his vessel
was 18 to 20 miles south of Winter
Quarter lightship at 4 p. m. May 25
when a shell exploded under her lee.
"Thinking it was some American
warship, I did not pay much atten
tion, but went down below and lit
my pipe. A second shell struck near
by and, I knew it meant me. Then
for the first time I noticed a big sub
marine, about two miles away.
"When a German lieutenant later
boarded the Edna, the lieutenant
said: 'Don't get excited, captain.
Takt your time. We'll be around
here an hour and a half.'
"So I picked up everything I could
think of that belonged to me, and
when I got over to the submarine I
found I'd left my new silk umbrella.
After they blew up the schooner, the
Germans rowed back to the subma
rine and I found that beside the few
things they had picked up for them
selves they have brought me my um

of oil, as they had .electric lights on
Had Plenty to Eat
"We captains had plenty to eat and
they -told us we might go where we
pleased on the submarine and into
any room, except when we were sub
merging. At that time we had to
stay in. whatever compartment we
found ourselves. i
"It seemed to me this submarine
was at least 300 feet long. There
were 76 men in the crew and there
were two 6-inch guns mounted, one
forward and one aft.
"Of course, we prisoners, although
we were treated well, .made a pretty
1ig ship's company, and the com
mander said he was looking for a
sailing vessel to put us on board, as
he did not want to take us to Ger

morning when the submarine over
hauled the Winneconne, we knew at
once when it was sunk, and 26 men
sent adrift, that something would
have 'to be done with lis. They could
not, keep us all on board, for after
the steamer was sunk, we went into
her boats while Captain Sweeney and
his crew set out in the launch be
