being sent to -president Wilson by
"i--. Cooe asking Him to take steps to
; suitably reward the b rave men who
had faced death with hini so smiling
; ly and unflinchingly. v
Every man was in high spirits.
"... Three were feeling the effects' If the
gas, but they were able to walk
, down the gang plank. They vere
.. .. takeiv to the navy yard hospital' for
".treatment. They are, not expected pt
ti I experience-any serious perniaticnf re

; It, navy is taking no cnances and they
J will remain in the hospital several
3 - days. ' .
I Every man was met at, the gang
I plank by Admiral " Charles F.
i Hushes. As the admiral, who is com
f inandant at the navy yard, reached
i out hit hand with thev question:
j "How are youffl'' each one, even the
" three sfck men, straightened up, and
with a brisk navy salute, answered,
I 'fine, thank you, sir."
Piecing together the brief inter
views the men would give, it was
easy to obtain a fairly accurate
story of their experience at the bot
tom of the sea. The cause of the ac
cident, the men declared, was a fail
ure of the main air induction to
work. Who was to blame for this
they "did not know. That will be
the task of the naval board of in
quiry, the preliminaries of which be-
' gan today an the battleship Ohio. -It
was iri order to be present at
this hearinfc that Lleutenant-com-
. niander Cooke was absent from the
Orders Practice Dive.
According to the story, at about
f miles off Cape Henlopen" when
Lieutenant-commander Cooke give
orders for a practice "crash dive."
.This is a war maneuver used when
speedy submerging is desired. IthadTtlc in the; streets of Coney Island
been-triejl the day before and had
been successful. '
The signal had been ' given and
eVery man was at his place. The
hitches were closed and water doors
were opened as the air ballast was
forced out and the water rushed in
p.nd the' bfjat began to sink. In a
moment the indicator shpwed some;
thing was wrong. Th bow .was
sinking faster than iha stern. A
quick inspection showed' the air in
duction had failed to work and one
of the sea valves had not closed.
, Three minutes passed and -the sub
marine was still sinking, but uneven
ly. Orders flashed out from Com
mander ' Cooke, from Lieutenant
Charles Grischam and Ensign J. B.
Longstaff. Every man knew some
thing was seriously wrong, but not
;oue left his station. Then there
a bump. -
Too Busy to Worry.
v t "It took tts some time to realize
i Just what had happened," said You-
,kers. "We were too busy to worry
EVfor a moment."
sr V; All but three donned masks and
; for hours they had their long fight

float, the men were forced trom one
Compartment to another, getting
nearer the stern each time, until all
jvere gathered there.
Tk Crowded in the stern of the boat
fie men drank , the juicer of canned
peas and beaTis until they were too
weak to open cans. They started to
eat other food, but the ooil and water
bad ruined it.
'i Without a watch br a match,; the
men were unable to tell whether it

As High as 25 to 35

Washington, Sept. 5. The report
irom Mexico City that the Ameri
can oil companies had paid the ex
port tax of 10 per cent on the val

government for the MayJune bc

of the. State department officials the-
entire matter of export taxes im
posed by the Mexican government,
a quesnon mat is oeing carctuiiy
studied by the department Certain
incongruities Jiave already been dis
closed by evidence in the possession
of the department, it was said to
day, which show that, while the Mex
ican government officials claim they
have levied on 10 pet cent as an ex
port tax, in reality it amounts to
trotrr 25 to 35 per cent.
' Under the tax law decreed by the
lute Fresident Carransa, fuel oil aiiu
crt.de petroleum pay 10 per cent on
certain valuation ixi every wo
months by the Mexican treasury de
