And these liners are still sailThis country has nothing to do ing.

ONLY 44 AMERICANS ACCOUNTED FOR WHEN FIRST REPORTS COME IN LONDON, May 8-Practically all the prominent Americans who sailed on Lusitania were still unaccounted for when the admiralty issued its statement and it was feared that Alfred Vanderbilt, Charles Frohman, Elbert Hubbard and Charles Klein had perished. The American consul at Queenstown telegraphed shortly before noon that Mr.

Vanderbilt had probably been lost. The Cunard agency places the total list of passengers at 2160. In addition to the foregoing figures it has just been signalled by wireless that a trawler and two fishing trawlers are bringing in 100 bodies. Many passengers were badly injured the Lusitania was torpedoed and some of these died in the hospitals after being brought ashore. Others rendered helpless by their wounds quickly drowned when the ship went down and they were thrown into the water.

The Germans are believed to have used special torpedoes of unusual power. The missles pierced the double skin of the liner tearing out the ship's vitals.

Outdoor exercise is one of Nature's best aids in promoting health and strength and keeping the blood rich and pure; but, perhaps you are one of the many who are denied that privilege.

When the Lusitania was 1 launched she was the wonder of the maritime world.

Her majesty of the sea from the standpoint of speed was undisputed. The Lusitania was one of the larg. est trans liners, as well one speediest. was built in Glasgow She was 785 feet long, 88 feet beam and 60 feet deep. Her gross tonnage was 32,500 and her net tonnage was 9,145.

She was owned by the Cunard Company (Ltd.) of Liverpool. Her captain was W. T. Turner. The Lusitania had accommodations for 550 first-class passengers, 500 seconl-class and 1,300 third After the outbreak of the war most of the largest and fastest vessels of the British trans-Atlantic fleet were requisitioned by the navy.

The Lusiin fact, was then only vessel of tania, this type to continue regular service. Inasmuch as she was the greatest prize which could fall to German warships or submarines, her voyages were followed with particular concern. British shipping maintained, however that she was in no danger, especially after the Atlantic had been cleared of German warships. They felt that her superior speed would enable her to evade any submarine. She had nine decks, with elevators.

Her cabins were designed to look more like a hotel than a ship. There were open fireplaces, windows shaped and curtained as in a private house, elaborate suites and a series of tapestried reception rooms, smoking rooms and cafes. The vessel was pronounced by her builders to be as nearly unsinkable as ship could be. The lower deck any was water-tight. The double bottom was so constructed that should the bilge keel be torn away and the hull pierced the entering water would be confined within the inner and outer bottom.

The lower portion of the hull was divided into 175 water-tight ments, with communicating doors so constructed that they could be closed automatically from the navigating bridge in a few seconds. Everything about the Lusitania was of colossal dimentions. Her rudder weighed sixtyfive tons. She carried three anchors of ten tons each. The main frame and beam, placed end to end, would extend thirty miles.

Bartel Rohe 921 MAIN STREET NEW TYPE SUBMARINE USED IN BRITISH ZONE The German Admiralty is said to have sent newly constructed submarines of large size and high speed for the present campaign. Few details are available as to the specifications of these vessels. It is said they are able to carry supplies for three months, enabling them to remain out for that length of time without putting into a port or having recourse to a parent ship.

Kinsale, off which the Lusitania was torpedoed, is a seaport of Ireland, 13 miles southwest of Cork. It lies near the entrance of St. George's channel, between Ireland and England, through which transatlantic vessels pass on their way to Liverpool. The presence of German submarines off the southern coast of Ireland and along the line of travel the Lusitania would follow in going to Liverpool was made known in a dispatch from Glasgow Thursday night which recited that the British steamer Cherbury had been torpedoed in the Atlantic Ocean off the Irish coast. The Lusitania is the twenty-ninth vessel to be sunk or damaged in the U.

S. IS SILENT AS TO COURSE WASHINGTON, May 8-The administration today remained silent as to what course the United States would pursue as the consequence of the sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine and the subsequent loss of American lives.
