GERMAN SUBMARINE GETS SIX SHIPS.
Had a Goad Day of it Near the American
Boston, Oct. 8. A submarine
of the Imperial German Navy,
ravaged shipping- off the cistern
coast of the United States today.
Four British one Dutch and
ne Norwegian steamer were sent
to the bottom or left crippled
derelicts off Nantucket Shoals.
Tonight under the light of the
hunter's moon the destroyer flot
ilia of the United States Atlantic
fleet was picking up passengers
and crews of the destroyed ves
sels and bringing them into New
port, R. I.
Sofar as known there was no
loss of life although . at a late
hour the crew of the British
steamer Kingston had not been
accounted for. A submarine held
up the American steamer Kansan,
bound from New York for Genoa
with steel for the Italian govern
ment, but later on establishing
her identity allowed the American
to proceed. The Kansan came
into Boston harbor late tonight
for her usual call here.
The submarine is believed to
he the U-53, which paid a call to
Newport yesterday and disappear
ed at sunset Some naval men,
liowtver, declared that at least
rtwo submarines are operating
close to the American shore
though outside the three-mile
Newport, R. I.. Oct. 8. The
British steamer Stephano, bound
from St. Johns, N. F., to New
York, carrying nearly 100 first
and second cabin passengers in
cluding many American tourists,
was sunk off Nantucket lightship
at 4:30 p. m. today, presumably
by the German submarine U-53.
The United States torpedo-boat
destroyer Balch reported the loss
of the liner by radio to the naval
station here, stating that the
s iip had been torpedoed. The
massage from the destroyer said
that the crew was safe abroad the
Balch. but made no mention of
the passengers who, it was
thought here also were taken
Washington, Oct. 8 -Submarine
"warfare at the very doors of the
United States does not necessarily
portend further complications
with Germany so long as it is
carried on within the limitations
of international law.
That is the view of official
Washington tonight on the ccord
of one day's operations in which
none of the ships destroyed ap
pears to have been attacked with
out warning or without proper
measures having been taken for
safety of those abroad.
While in international law an
Allied ship destroyed by a Ger
man submarine just outside the
three-mile lhnit and in sight of
American shores, is no different
than a ship destroyed in the Arc
tic Ocean, provided its destruction
. is accomplished in accordance
with the laws of Nations and
humanity, the presence of a Ger
man submarine flotilla near Am
erican territorial waters, officials
fear, may raise perplexing ques
tions of neutrality and in fact a
most serious issue would be raised
if the operations of the submer
sibles were carried on so near
American ports as practically to
constitute a blockade.
At the outset of the war, when
Allied cruisers hovered off New
York so close that commerce was
impeded, operations as practical
ly a blockade, notified France and
Great Britain" of its objections
and the ships promptly were
moved further out to sea. The
possibility of a simijiar situation
resulting from submarine opera
tions is foreseen.
Newport. R. L, Oct. 9. The
wholesale raid on foreign shipping
south of ' Nantucket Lightship

American naval officers. Rear

gan, is authority for the state-1
ment that there are 24,922 062 j
Roman Catholics in the entire
United States, while the last cen
sus says there are about 14,000,
COO, a difference of nearly 11,000,-
0G0. An eminent preacher refer
ring to a papal claim that there
we're 16,000,000 Romanists in this
country, when the census shows
but 14,000,000, recently made the
remark that evidently Catholics
count all that are on deck, and in
the cabin as well. If there are
25.000,000 Roman Catholics in
the United States the govern
ment should know it.
The Pilot further says that
16,654,109 of these are actual
residents of the United States,
besides probably a floating po
pulation of 1,656,410, and that
the balance of the 25.000,000 are
in Alaska, the Canal Zone, Guam
Samoa the Philippines, Porto
Rico, etc. The Romanist statis
ticians would have us believe that
all the men in these 25,000,000
have votes. That is all except
about one-half. Included in" the
latter are the Filipinos, Guamese,
Samoans, Indians, Mexicans, pa
pal unnaturalized foreigners of
many races convicts, unnaturally
ed priests, etc. Yet it is pointed
out that despite all these 25,000 -000,
the actual gain last year was
250,000 or 1 per cent.
Papist politicians and Romanist
statisticians are some bluffers
when, as in presidential cam
paign years, it seems desirable to
impress party managers and
custodians ol the campaign funds
with the strength of the Catholic
vote, which is more or less my
thical. Masonic Chronicle, Sept

SCRIBES CANT DECIDE ON CANDIDATE.
Rome's Political Writer Fails to Find Consola
tion in Stand of Either Hughes or Wilson.
Discussing politics in general
and Messrs. Wilson and Hughes
in particular, the pope's Tablet of
Brooklyn, issue of Sept. 9.. ob
serves: "In the country at large.
Ah! Ahl again.
"Of course, there's Wilson.
There has been, for some time.
There's Mexico, Hutera and Wil
son's Righteous Indignation

Murder! But fortunately, we
have never intervented, or de
manded that our Flag be saluted,
or bad any of our soldiers killed,
or other peaceful citizens con
demned to "The Border" for the

Moses struck in strophes the rock
and failed, Joshus will take up

"Promised land of what? Of
course, the promised land that's
paved with votes. Wilson has
failed. One does not have to live
eight hours in a labor union's
diurnal twenty-four, to realize
that. But what of Hughes?
What has he done? What has
he promised? What has he gua
ranteed? "His progress in vote-getting
was vituperative. He has attack
ed Wilson and Democrats. He
has done nothing- else. He has,
since his nomination as before,
offered nothing constructive
This 4 strong" man, of whom,
much was foolishly expected, has
said nothing, done nothing, save
to be photographed for the hair
line. Unwhiskered Wilson has
beaten him to that'
Here indeed is an illuminating
essay on candidates Wilson and
Hughes. It is plain to be seen
that the pope's political scribe on
the Tablet finds Wilson's Mexi
can attitude very distasteful, but
Oft! My! What a wonderful col
lection of things Mr. Hughes
does lack! What an array of
promises he has failed to make.
Failed to make promises to
Rome's Jesuitical schemers, just
as he has failed to make any
avowed definite public or private
promises to the patriots. What
a shame that he has guaranteed
nothing to Rome! What a shame
that this 'strong man of whom
much was foolishly expected has
done nothing and said nothing
since his nomination, or before."
If Mr. Hughes is not careful,
Rome will have to find another
candidate upon whom to center
her hopes to lead her into the
promised land of A.merica made
"dominatly Catholic." Will Wil

mish grafters by refusing to
shoot at their back and nod in

Disobedient Daughter and Tricky San Wed
Against Parents Wishes.
Shelby, Oct- 8. Mrs. Lee Mar
tin, formerly Miss Daisy Lacky,
returned today from Chase City,
Va.,obtained the release of her
father from jail and after fcigni
fying her choice to live with her
husband to whom she married
ten days ago in South Carolina,
hastened away to their future
home at Fallston. The quite Sun
day afternoostwas made a rather
ex2iting occasion, for this case
has been hanging fire for several
days and no little interest has
been aroused. When the bride
tore away from her objecting
father. and rushed into the arms
of her newly wedded husband, at
the home of Alderman Orlando
Eam, a crowd of ladies clapped
their hands in approval of the
reunion of the couple. The street
in front of the Elam home was
crowded with spectators but
there was no demonstration other i
than that coming from the ladies.
Ten days ago the 17-year-old
Daisy Lackey and Lee Martin j
ran away to South Carolina and
were married over the protest of
her father, Hill Lackey, of Fall
ston. On hearing his girl had
been secreted away, Lackey ob
tained a writ of habeus corpu?
and officers went in search. The
father found the couple on the.
road returning from South Caro
lina after the marriage ceremony
had been duly performed and I
there procured possession of his
daughter. Whether she Joined
her father by force or in obedi
ence to her wish, is a question
which will havej contradictory,

The father carried his newly
married daughr to OlMwejC4tx
Va., and left her at the home of
Dr. W. A. Bess, formerly of Lin
coln county. In order to make
sure she was there Mr. Martin,
the groom, and his" sympathizers
sent friends to Chase City to de
termine the manner in which she
was being held and brought
back word that she was under
After she was secreted away
young Martin had issued a writ
of habeas corpus, demanding
thai the father produce the bride
before his honor, Judge James
L. Webb, at this place last week.
This the father did not do, at
torneys representing Mr. Lackey
claiming that the girl was beyond
the jurisdiction of the court The
iudge held, however, that she
was under control of her father,
that he was in the State and
therefore, the girl was within the
jurisdiction of the court; so the
father was commanded to have
ijer here on Saturday. This he
failed again to do and Mr Lackey
was placed in jail for contempt of
court, there to remain until the
After her return he was to be
placed under $2,000 bond for ap
pearance with the girl at a hear
ing to be set later. The father
was taken to jail Saturday after
noon and a message immediately
flashed over the wires to Chase
City for her to return.
Young Martin went to Char
lotte to watch and wait for her
and together they came in on the
Seaboard at noon, the bride ac
companied by Mrs. Bess. Mrs.
Martin went to the home of Al
derman Elam, who telephoned
Judge Webb to know what to do.
In the meantime the father had
been released and was at the,
home, the groom was there and ,
a crowd of spectators had assem-
bled with Sheriff W. U. Lackey
aud Cuief Jetton on hand to quite
any disturbance that might arise
Judge Webb told Mr. Elam not
to hold the girl but let her choose
between father and husband.
The father was attempting to
take her by force when Deputy
Lackey broke his grip and the
girl rushed to the arms of her
husband and together they sped
away in an automobile.
The hearing was not had today
