THE DAILY v f?REE PRESS 'The sEock: was followed )byi an. InflM; Donald 'clung .to 'the edge, of the .nlte suspense.- "Perhaps It 'lasted''for -boat and'scrambled in.'"He saw the <wo seconds. The .cruiser drove { a . mBZe d recognition flame out on Wa's through the waves like some sea moa-'' "" ' »ter that had received a'deadly thrust •wucathed. ttheh, with a detonation that was 'lieard from Samburgh to Sutherland, >«fae went sky-high la tumbling ruin. Ikmnld, within the conning tower, saw ••» blur frost the mirror" of the .perl- "•cope. ~ '* • '.-.-..•' . / •, : ' .. Another second r passed^ Then- .the •VSS went reeling nhder the'terrific lorce of the explosion. She spun found under the waves and thrilled as If she herself faced-disruption. ". The bilge-pumps c cleared her diving tanks. She rose, . nose upward, scent- Ing the air; her stern followed, and "She lay awash in the water once.more. 3Che hatches wore removed. Not a vestige of the cruiser was to be seen.- : . She had sunk -la less thaa three minutes. • '-'-.But hard by, not three-quarters of : o. mlie.tb.port, a.pillar of smoke, lit •cp by flame, curled out of the Beotia's hatches. Deeming her the submarine's decoy, the cruiser's gunners, had riddled her with shells-from the'two'12- tach guns at the bow. She seemed to stagger through the smoke that wreathed her. She was dying by 'fire, and water, too, and the twin elements! in.their eternal conflict, recked nothing, of her. human freight. And Ida was ; there—Ida, doomed to perish,'if she were not already dead, unless help speedily came! , Donald, took the helm. The F55 rushed through the waves in the direction of the Claude liner, which listed hard, to starboard. , Two :boats had , already been, launched, and . bobbed ridiculously heslfie, her; others remained high up in the air, impotent, because the list prevented their being lowered, and dashed themselves to pieces against the hull as they swung "from the shattered dsivits. .As the F55 drew near the ocean •eemed to open. Silently, softly, the convexity of the hull slipped down and •was lost to view as the sun's edge foes Into the horizon. A swirl and r..1" the, nofei> pt tne^wo'TJoats; and floU-like figures that bobbed in the water. - A gasp of horror went up from the throats of the seamen, clustered upon •the deck of the F55, as the swirl sucked down the boat that was the nearer to the maelstrom of the wreck. It sucked . down with all its living freight and,. spewed. .it forth into the air again, end pn— ;einpty. The engines stopped; .The submarine glided in. . The single boat seemed -empty. No ! There was a woman aboard, and a man pulling wildly upon one oar. . Donald took in the situation instantly. -He turned to his aid, Davies, a Jlttle, keen-faced middy who was making his first voyage in command ol •men. "Tow us, or run for .Fair island!" fee cried.' Then, flinging off his 'coat, he leaped. A few strokes cnrrjed him, to tha •wWrllng boaf/Arid/now he realized that he had known. all .aiong that tha face. He knew then that she loved him, and' his 'impulse to se'lze her In his arms was almost ungovernable. . : • But at the' same Instant, looking past;her Into, the ,800, he .experienced •the same illusion that had beset him within the house in ' Baltimore, and again outside (Itrrrthat of a woman's misty; form Outlined upon the,'water! Donald made tf cup of his hands. \ "Davlesv 'fling: 'but a rope I" 'he bawled. . : But the submarine was some distance, away, and :In,- a moment a wall of fog, came down, blotting her out. Ida ' Kennedy watched Donald with approval. She had always liked him; shaken, as she was now, his advent seemed the work of Providence. She had questioned her heart before she sailed,, for. she : had known;- that her future was of -''tier >own 'choosing, whether it was to be spent with him or-no. — . ....... .. " , Donald continued to-call loudly, but the F55 was drifting in the mist and quite .invisible. It was in fear of this ^sudden happening that Donald had told Davies to make for Fair island if he could not get a rope to the boat. "Fair isi'nrid," less than six' miles .away, :^'>ya^. , the -secret rendezvous wher.e"/fh"e'i'6]il-slup./and' biplane were to await 'tlie F55, the 'former to replenish fuel supply, the latter to accpaipany. her back to the mother ehip. ' ' I Donald picked up a pair of oars from the. bottom. He realized that he n-ould have to pull toward Fair island alone as. soon as. he- got an inkling of Its direction, with the cliance of being picked up by the submarine when the Cog cleared. But it was approaching sundown, and the probabilities of their spending the night in the boat seemed strong. He sat with the oars in the rowlocks. As he allowed one to drift through the water he discovered, to liis surprise, that it was apparently plunged into a mass of some j'ellylike substance. He dipped his hand into It nnd scooped some of -it up. - --- BILL TO PERMIT 2.75 ,BEER Congressman Minahan (Dem.) of New • Jersey Also Asks for 10 Per Cent Wine.

States. .' ' /.'/ At the'saine time he transmitted to the"senate a copy of a "proposed agreement" : between the allied and- associated governments at-Paris; 'under which each is to retain as its own :"the complete title to and use of all ships captured,. seized . or . detained during the war as a war measure," and to .."own the same free from any claim of any of the allied or associated governments." Pian of-Distribution. This agreement further provides that In case the ships so retained by any allied or associated government are Jn excess of the claims of such governments for war losses in merchant ships such government shall not make a claim for. a share o£ other ships ceded under the treaty of peace. Ships so ceded will be distributed among the other governments on the basis of ton for ton and class for class of the ships lost and-not replaced by the enemy vessels seized or captured by them during the war. It also provides that since the ships to be retained by the United States, Brazil, China, Cuba and Siam would exceed their claims for merchant tonnage lost the cornjnissiion shall determine a reasonable value of the excess and that those countries shall pay such sums to the commission for the credit of Germany in making reparation for -war losses of merchant ships. The' president said that while he felt -confident that congress would make the disposal of the funds to which he had agreed he had as authority to bind It to that act,-"but must depend upon its taking the same, view in the matter that Is taken by the 1 Joint signatories of this agree-' ment." Text of Message. The president's message .to the senate; follows: •'.'•• "I have tlie lionor to acknowledge the receipt of a resolution passed by th'2 senate on FQbmai.-y 14 requesting the president to inform;. that, body 'n-aether any. nnd if so,;what agree- ment'or-understanding exists between him nnd officials of Great-Britain concerning the disposition byl.'^he United States of America of jthe German ships which the shipping-Board is proposing to'sell, or \vhich were acquired by the United States afteVthe termination ' of hostilities - between said 'United States' and the central European Teutonic powers.-' j ; ' "The ships for the purchase of which • bids have been aiked by the shipping board, were raten over" -by executive orders issued;.pursuant, to the .Jdint.-.resolution of \ congress o'f May .12, 1917, authorizing {the president to take over for!'the United -States the possession anditltle' o'f any ye'ssel within its Jurisdiction, under enemy ownership, or unbersthe registry of an enemy country.'
