BOVIC'S SKIPPER PLANfJE TO FIRE ON SUBMARINE Pilot Says Capt Han Told Him " Being Too Small an Object ' Believe U-Boat Was Chasing Danish Liner Hellig Olav, But Shipping Men Here Scout Possibility of Attack Allied Warships Still Patrol Coast for U-53 U. S. Naval Officers Still Believe Merchantmen blySafe. The White Star Liner Bovic reached port to-day from Manchester, England, with details of the reported pursuit of the Danish liner Hellig Olav by a German submarine. Capt John Hall, the pilot who brought the Bovic in, said that Capt. Jones of the White Star Liner, told him he saw only a periscope a mile away, but that if it had offered a Jarger target he would have opened fire on it. Capt. Jones himself would not' discuss any phase of the incident. According to the story told on the arrival of the liner a -westbound submarine was sighted one mile astern the Hellig Olav at 8:30 yesterday morning. Some of the Berne's officers believed the submarine was pursuing the Danish vesseL Others were not certain she was being chased. The Bovic's captain ordered full steam ahead and dashed westward at the greatest possible speed to avoid possible . The Hellig Olav left New Tork Thursday fof Copenhagen and "ther Scandinavian porta, carrying seven- i ty-one cabin passengers and passen-; gers In the steerage. She was about 100 miles east of New Tork when the : Bovlo saw the submarine. Shipping j men saw no reason why the Danish j liner should be attacked by a sub-i marine, and thought that possibly a German TJ-boat fell across her path, j leading the Bovic's officers to be- Ileve she was being pursued. . ; At the White Star-offices In Man-i fcattan It was asserted that no state-j merit could be made concerning the I reported sighting of a submarine un- til Capt. Jones had made an official ! report to the company. One. report ! was to the effect Capt Jones and ; other orncers or tne nner ran uemeu i the accuracy of the report. False Submarine Reports. j BOSTON. Oct. 14. "Absolutely I nothing baa been heard of the Ger- man submarine TJ-63 since reports ' from the steamship Bovic yesterday, i the Charlestown radio station to-day ' reported. A report was current here that the i submarine had been seear off the j Massachusetts" coast, apparently in i pursuit of a Dutch steamer. This was confused with a dispatch from New j Tork which contained statements 1 from passengers on the Bovio saying the submarine was sighted chasing the Danish passenger ship Hellig Olav yesterday. American destroyers are patrolling ' the heavy seas off the Atlantic coast : to-day. No word regarding the beV- llgerent naval base for which they i are searching has been received. Al-j lied destroyers still cruise from Cape I Hay to Cape Ann on the lookout Xor the German raider. Menace to Shipping Remains. ; WASHINGTON. Oct 14.

Thinks Call for Conference Would Prove Unsuccessful. By CARL W. ACKERMAV. COLOGNE. Oct. 14. "If these fellows make peace only when Germany la "knocked out,' then -ore will never ' make peace!" This emphatic declaration cam today from Ernest Posse,' chief editor of the Cologne Gazette." and probably Germany's greatest editor. His thirty-two years' connection with that powerful Journal makes him perhaps the best unofficial spokesman of the Empire, In replying to Uoyd George's recettt statement that the war must go on to a finish. "For weeks the Allies hare conducted a press cam Dai m aratnxt peace, especially at . Washington," said Posze. 'They hare said repeat- edly that t here will be no peace until we are broken, until they reach the Rhine. ., . ' German People Confident. "These statements have strengthened our position . enormously. , In my opinion the military situaUon U I better to-day than It. was ayear ago.

Is to-day's admitted belief In Naval circles. Naval officers said they have not been lulled Into any false hopes by the submarine's week of Inactivity. They believe she may (fee hiding out somewhere In wait for lig same," such as a munitions tehip of great tonnage, or possibly V a crowded Canadian transport. Some naval officers say it would be impossible to watch the great stretch of American coast closely enough to prevent a shipmaster willing to take the chance for big game to run out -to a certain point and leave supplies abaord non-slnkable rafts. Few here believe the U-5S has even started back home. Officials to-day said they believed the liner Adriatic out of danger, at least until she Is closing In towards shore on the other side. They do not belieVe any submarine commander would take the responsibility of attacking a boat with Americans aboard as far out at sea as the Adriatic Is now. POPE IN TOUCH WITH SUBMARINE SITUATION. ROME. Oct 14. Mgr. Bonzano. Papal representative at Washington, is keeping in close touch with the submarine situation for the purpose of informing Pope Benedict whether Germany has violated her pledges to the United States. Rome newspapers reported to-day that the Kaiser has refused to grant permission to the Papal Nuncio at Munich to visit Italy for the November consistory. The Kaiser is said to be displeased with the Nuncio, but Pope Benedict refused to make any change. place?" he was asked. This war Is so enormous that the methods for bringing peace which applied formerly do not apply to-day," he replied. "An international congress cannot settle it. The only plan is for Wilson, through Ambassadors, to suggest that special envoys meet in Washing jn. but I do' not believe this would succeed now. "The Allies want peace on their own terms, which we certainly will not consider. Here, as elsewhere, there are peace-at-any-prtce folk, but the German people as a whole want peaco only when we can exist as a nation." WILSON TELLS WHITMAN OF BORDER RELIEF PLAN ASBtXRT PARK. N. J..

King Constantlne, despite the growth of the Venizelos movement in Greece continues to delay plans for Greece's entry Into the war. He told a diplomat, according to the Athens correspondent of "The Daily Chronicle," that he was convinced the Germans would overrun Roumania withia fifteen days and that he fear ed Greece would meet a like fate if she joined the Allies.

Foes of District Attorney-Harry E. Lewis were puzzled today. Just as they were fretting their campaign for O'Neill, the Mitchel office holder, under headway, they learned that the Mayor's "baby farming" scheme was to be started on Monday. Since O'Neill holds a $4,500 exempt job under Mitchel, and all the Mayor's friends are backing him for District Attorney, the managers were wondering what effect the new war on the denominational institutions of Brooklyn would have on the Mayor's candidate against Mr. Lewis. There was a suggestion to-day that ! plan would have before they m.t-managers df the campaign against , tempted to stop the inauguration cf District Attorney Lewis wr so dls. the baby farm project. turbed over the situation that a plea may be made to the City Hall to postpone the inauguration of the scheme. Some of the managers held the view that the start of the "baby farming" farm would reopen al! the bitterness of the recent caartUeg controversy. Friends cf fhs Mayor he would not be swerved from his course. They edded that If he stopped the plan until after !fCtlon new complications might arise which might effect the p'.in. and there was grim determination to get It started at once. Say Mayor Needs Frteiul. The foes of the District Attorney said thr . the charities situation was a 'delicate" one. and that to start the fighting ail over again would only help Lw! They declared that the Mayor needed all the friends that he ould g-t. and that If a MltcheJ office holder could be e.ected as utatrict Attorney of Klrgs County !t would hel? the Mayor in his campaign for a renorr.' ;on. They al--' naid It would be "good political dope" to have as Dlitrtct Attorney of Brooklyn an official who was not clashed as unfriendly to the city adminlstretion. They also figured cot that an office holder, who had been held In a M.S00 exempt Job for about three yeans by the MayT would regard the City Hall theories cf charitable management with a more sympathetic intereat. Import a Superintendent. From every viewpoint. it was agreed by some of the 1r. der of the campaign agalnM I-ewH. -hat it would be inadvisable at thin time to have the true facts about the Mayor's "baby farming-' scheme brought out. It was declared that many facta which have not been brought te pub-, lie attentlen would he placed un.ler-the spotlight and would start new troubles in varioua directions. One of 'he things which the Mayor'a friends are sensitive aooui ia me claim that he -Imported" a auperin-tendent for the baby farming scheme from Marrland- They do not want to have It brought out again that the funds that are to support the Mayor's new bureau were obtained by public subscription through the irons or some of his members of the Committee of One Hundred- Under the law. money obtained by public subscription cannot be made a part of the budget for the Chart tie Department. slay Malts City Fay foe 6ctiie. It is claimed In Important circles that the money which the Mayor's friends raised by public subscription has not been paid In. It Is also said , that tke e-ubeeripuons are iu nature of -promises to pay- and that before the plan Is put through there may be a deficit and in the end an effort wtn be made to have the whole bureau taken over by the city. When the next budget la made up. It Is believed, an attempt will be made to have a good slsed appropriation set apart for the r.ew turn In the charities war. which la to be started by public and not municipal funds. According to the talk In City Hall circles, the baby farming scheme is to be started next week. It is hoped that at least three hundred children will be placed out In Brooklyn aad New York.
