Washington News Meager.
Washington, July 19. Announce
ment by the Navy department tonigln
that the armored cruiser San Diegc
had been sunk today off the Long Is
land coast' indicated that German sub
marines again may be operating in
American waters. The cause of the
vessel's destruction and the casualties
that may have resulted were unknown
at a late hour.
.The vessel itself was not regarded
as a serious military loss. If it was a
victim of enemy submarines, it is ob
vious that the U boats are in the
transport lanes and close to the en
trance of New York harbor for hc
San Diego went down ten miles
southeast of Fire Island. -
Until the statements of survivors
definitely establish that the vessel
was sunk by a torpedo, there will be
a possibility that it struck a drifting
defense mine or was sent down by
accidental internal explosion.
The only formal statement issued
by the department was based on first
reports. It follows:
The Navy department has received
reports" from the third naval district
Stating that the United States steam
ship San Diego was sunk 10 miles
southeast of Fire Island ligth at 11:30
o'clock this morning. One officer
and two, boat crews were landed at
lift saving station No. 82, on Long
Island. Other survivors are in boats
and four steamers are standing by.
"So far as can be ascertained there
appears to have been no loss of life.
The cause of sinking has not yet
been determined. The San Diego was
an armored cruiser of 13,680 tons dis
placement and carried a complement
of 1,114 officers and men."
Late tonight the Navy department
would add nothing to this statement
and officers professed to have no
information as to the cause of the
loss or the number of survivors. It
was apparent officials were prepared
to. hear some lives were lost.
Raiders' Return Expected.
The return of raiders was not un
expected. v.The "San Diego was the
first major warship to be lost since
the country entered war. None hut
commercial qpastwise ships fell prey
to the submersibles on their, first
raid and in the war zone none but
destroyers, transports and small pa
trol boats have been successfully at
tacked. Despite reports of attacks on other
ships and that warnings had been sent
to coastwise shipping to keep close
to the coast, naval officials stead
fastly maintained they had no infor
nation on which to believe that the
submarines had come again. .The
sinking aroused the war spirit in the
capital more than the news of the
great drive by Americans in France,
which as a proposition of military
importance is of vastly more concern
than the loss of a comparatively un
important ship and the loss of prob
ably very few lives if any. All means
which 'the Navy department has at
its eommand for hunting the sub
marines are in action and officials
are "still entirely confident of their
ability-to protect the coasts. If an
other raid has been started with the
object of a popular agiation to cause
the return pf American naval forces
in the war zone, it will undoubtedly
prove in that respect a failure.
Preparationi have been made at the
United States base hospital at Fox
Hills. Staten island, to receive wound.
ed men. but the authorities' there
were not certain they were from the
San Diego, although that was con
sidered highly probable, v
Persona living on the Babylon
shore of the bay reported tonight that
they had heard a number of explosions
at sea this morning..
An Atlantic Port, July 19. The
coastwise steamer reported in Marine
curctes today as having sent out wire
less signals of distress on account of
a submarine had among her passen
gers a . detachment of marine re
cruits. ' ' :

LATER IN YEAR
Overwhelming Man Power Will
Be Hurled Into Struggle to
" Comer Fall of Soissons
By Associated Press.
Washington, July 19. War depart
ment officials expect the real counter
offensive against the Germans to be
launched later this year. This was
disclosed to members of the house
military committee by General March,
chief of staff, who indicated that the
employment of possibly eight Ameri
can divisions now in the double bat
tle on the Aisne-Marne-Rheims front
would not affect materially plans to
hurl overwhelming man power into
the great struggle to come.
It was made plain the smashing
attack of Franco-American forces on
the Aisne-Marne line is as yet regard
ed as only a minor operation. The
success of the drive launched yester
day by General Foch, however, has
already been startling. Official re
ports from Paris tonight said 17,000
prisoners and 360 guns had been cap
tured. The Berlin statement admitted
French advances, but ignored Ameri
can participation and claimed 20,000
prisoners had been taken by the Ger
mans in their drive launched last
Monday. Apparently the enemy com
manders dare not admit to the German
people that American armies are al
ready fighting over a long front and
scoring repeated successes over vet
eran German divisions. ,
Soissons Capture Rumored.
Reports late in the day from Lon
don and Paris indicated that further
advances had been made by the
Franco-American forces during the
day. Official advices from General
Pershing led to a hope that Soissons,
nearly ten miles inside the German
lines night before last, would be in
allied hands within" a short time.
Rumors that it had already fallen and
30,000 additional German prisoners
had been taken were in circulation,
Lut no additional advices from Gen
eral Pershing had arrived at a late
hour. ' .
Unless the Franco-American troops
are brought to a halt definitely before
Sunday night, it is predicted that the
enemy will be forced to. fall back.
Even if he is successful in evading
the jaws of the closing trap, he will
be compelled to abandon vast quanti
ties of war material and will lose
many prisoners in making good his
escape, it is believed.
For the first time the German, offi
cial statement made no claim of hav
ing advanced on the line they assailed
There is evidence the energy of
France, Great Britain and the United
States is being concentrated on get
ting ready for later blows.
, Draft Extension to Be Asked.
The enlarged army plan Secretary
Baker told congress he was having
worked out is taking shape. It . is
certain that extension of the draft
age limits are to be asked. ,
One indication of what is being
worked out came recently when it
was announced in parliament that
British ships had carried in excess
of 300,000 American troops to France
and that British ships would be avail
able through the coming months to
transport Americans at an even in
creased rate. '
Washington, July 19. President
Konenkamp of the Commercial Tel

not decided the demand of the tel

better working conditions. Granting

ganize was the only question settled
by the .board, the complaint says.
