i w V ' ' i Lales,Iar Mews The Week's Resume if Events on the Europeio Battlefields. LondoD, May ,1 Gorman sub marines, wjhiph for two weeks had been confining themselves to the North Sea, where they sank sever kl trowltrs, again have appeared on the trade routtt off the west ooaett of Iieland and England and caught two . victims . They were the British steamer Edale, sank off : tbe Soilly Islands, and the Russian steamer Svorono, attaok Jd off the Blasket Itlands. Both orews were saved. That, taken in connection' with thaw riling issued to Amerioau travelers on trans -Atlantic liuers, doubtless meaus another attempt with a great number of subma rines to combat the I lockade by" England. It is announced by the English papers that the Admiral ty has found a meaus of dealing with submarines and the people, in view of the latest attacks upon steamers, are awaiting the resnh with interest. London, May 2. The Ameri can oil tank steamer Gultight which tailed from Port Arthur, Texas, April 10, for Rouen, France was torpedoed at nooi. Saturday off Soily Islands, accord ing to a Central News dispatch to day. The captain of the GuLfight, ac cording to the same advices, diea of bart failure at a result of the ahook. Two teamen jumped over board and were drowned. The other members of the crew were taken off by a patrol boat. The vessel was towed into Grow Sound and beached. Washington, May fc-Preit re- fporteojtheitorpedii American ieamer: jGulfisfrtan'd the loifa qt hercaptam; add same ttir tonight in official circles-here. If first reports are borne out, the attack on the Gulfight con stitutes the first case of an Ameri can ship struok by a torpedo with the consequent loss of lives. Two have beeo sunk by mines, the re sponsibility for which never his been fixed aLd an American, Leon C, Thresher, was drowned when the Britiathip Falaba was tor pedoed. V: The United States Government hat just completed its investiga tion of the Thresher, but in view of the direot attack on an Ameri can vessel now reported it is re ported that both incidents will be dealt with in whatever diplomatic aotion is taken. It was recalled tonight that in the note sent to Germany in an awer to Germany's proclamation of a tea-war zone the Washington Govern ment stated that it would hold Germany to a strict account ability for the loss of any Amer can lives or vessels. The course of the United States ia the case of the Gulfight is not likely to be determined for several days as some time probably will be required to get the facts. The possibility of any action other thau a demand for damages is con sidered remote because of the be- a - m Auf . a ..a a iter ci cmoiais tnat tne attaoK on the Gulfight probably will be found to have been accidental. London, May 2 A German submarine on Saturday sank the old British destroyer Ruoruit off the Galloper Lightship, in the North Sea, but the score was more than equalized by other British destroyers, which after a stern chaBe overtook and sank the two German torpedoboats that had ac companied the submarine on her cruise. Some of the crew of the Recruit were resoued by the trawler Daisy, but as the submarine fired on the fisherman they were compelled to leave the others to their fate rrm . 1a . -a Tne isritisn aestroycrs rescued most of the crews of the German torpedoboats and two officers were picked up by a passing steamer aid taken to Holland. Besides rthesa incidents in the North Sea the German submarines continued their operations off the JrJcilly Islands ana in addition to torpedoing the American tank steamer Gclfight, whose captain died of shock and on which two men were drowned, tank the Frenoh steamer, Europe and the British steamer, Fulgent, the cap tain of the latter vessel being shot. 4 There ha been no fatther bom bardment of Dunkirk, which would seem to indioate that the Germans only had one big gun in position and that the Frenoh airmen have made it to uncom fortable for the gun crew that it has been withdrawn. At a reply to this bombardment the French have brought one of their big guns to bear on one of the forts at the south entranoe to the Met. It appeart that the tnrkith re port that the Asiatic part of the Dardanelles it free of the invaders wat correct, the Frenoh having gone ashore there only to make the landing of the British on the other side easier, and this accom plished, have been withdrawn, doubtless to J and at tome other point. Newt of these operations is awaited with the greatest inter est as for the moment they are considered among the most impor tant of thr war. ' London, May 8 Aooording to Berlin and Vienna, the German and Austrian armiet have achieved a notable victory in West Galaoia, smashing the entire Russian along a front of many miles, or as the Berlin official statement putt it, across the whole Western tip of Galacia, from near the Hungarian border to the point where' the River Dunajeo joint the Vistula, right at the frontier of Poland.

Berlin m celebrating the victory tonight) though it it admitted flags have been flown before full details are at hand. England and France make do olaim to gains in the West, the British merely saying that the German attacks on Hill 60 in Flanders have been beaten back; the French confirm thit. The Germans maintain they are pushing forward, to the northwest of Ypres and toward St, Jolien, whioh they captured after the at tack following their extensive use of gas, but which they were forced to yield under counter attacks.. In the fightir.g in the Baltic provinces also Berlin -finds cause to rejoice. Rejecting the Rus. sian contention that it ii only a spoiadio cavalrv raid, Berlin wire less comment received tonight sayt it seriously threaten the Rat- sian right aud the fact that troops could be moved so far northeast before they encountered rs-assist ance is considered a reflection on the Russian intelligence system. So far as claims go, it was an Austro-German day. A number of vessels, neutral and otherwise, have fallen viotimB to German Submarines, Norway being a par ticular heavy 'loser London, May 3 Ooe Sweedish and three Norwegian freight steamers aLd two British trawlers have been sunk in the North Sea by German submarines, according to dispatches received in London today. The orews of all of the veBBels were rescued and have been landed. The Norwegian steamers tent down were the I.aila, America and Baldwin. The Sweedish steamer sunk wat the Ellida. The loca tions of the sinking of these ves sels were not given in the dis patches but reports from Aber deen, Scotland, were that the trawlers were sent to the bottom 50 miles off that port.
