Athe first torpedo struck in the star
hoard part of the ship and the second
hit the vessel 12 minutes later and
was followed by a boiler explosion, the

boiler explosion.' Those who lost
their lives were drowned when the
life-boats were launched. '
According to this information, a
submarine, which emerged after thei
second torpedo as fired, was seen
plainly by Americans, but it did not
communicate with the shop or offer
assistance to the boats Vhich were in
direct peril from the rough sea.
The names of George'Sodberry and
House had not been ' given be
fore as Americans on the Marina. Last

German Merchant Submarine
Reached American Port
On Second Trip Today.
CAPTAIN KOENIG '
STILL IN COMMAND
Uncommunicative and Crowds
Kept Away From The
Ship Left Bremen
New London, Nov. 1. The German
submarine, Deutschland, which arriv
ed this morning from Bremen, after
what is said to have been an unevent
ful voyage of 21 days, has a cargo of
750 tons of dye stuffs, medicines, and
chemicals. A gang of stevadores was
present to unload the cargo, -but per
mission has not yet been granted by
the custom officials.
Neither Captain Koenig nor HInsch,
of the Eastern Forwarding Company,
were communicative as to the detail-
ed account of the trip across the At-j being pursued by Rumanian troops,
lantic, but they promised to see news-j that have wiped out four batallions of
paper men later in the day. They j the Germans. 1 '
pleaded that they were too busy withy Further Russian "attacks on Lem-
the details of the unloading.
Crowds thronged the dock in the
forenoon in the hopes of getting a
glimpse of the submarine, but they
were disappointed. The submarine is
69 well berthed in a pocket that not
even her masts shows. Policemen and
detectives kept the crowd moving.
The Deutschland left Bremen Oct
ober 10 and tied up at a berth here
at 2:35 o'clock this morning.
Havana, Nov. 1. The results of the
general election in Cuba today prom
ise to be most interesting, and while J
the present conservative government
is expected to be sustained it is more
than probable that a good many sur
prises are in store. The Conservative
party has the advantage that comes of
being- in power, while the Liberal op
position has waged the campaign
under the disadvantage of split ranks
and the further serious handicap of
being without funds.-
A multitude of public officials are
to be chosen, ranging from president
and vice-president of the republic
down to minor local officers. Ten par
ties have their candidates on the bal
lot which is 36 inches long, by 32
inches wide. Generals Menocal and
Nunez are standing for re-election as
pre8iden; and vice-president, respect-
ively on the Conservative ticket, with
the endorsement of several of the
minor parties. The candidates oppos
ed to them are Dr. Alfredo Zayas for
pre8ident and Colonel Carlos Mendieta
for vice-president, nominated jointly
by the Liberals and Conjunction Pa
triotica. At the present time, partly
as a result of the European war and
in part as a result of measures fos
tered by the adminitration, Cuba is
in the .enjoyment of an era of almost
unprecedented prosperity. As a con
sequence it is regarded as a practical
certainty that President Menocal and
the majority of the candidates on the
Conservative ticket will be re-elected
by substantial majorities.
