Rumor in Liverpool That Lapland Wns
Chased in Irish Sea.
L1VBBPOOL, Starch 12. The lied Star
liner Lapland left Liverpool yesterday for
New York with first class and third
class passengers, many of them Ameri
cana, on board.
A report was current during tho day
that the steamer, after crossing the Mer
sey Bar, had been chased by a German
submarine. This report, however, has not
been officially confirmed, nnd not much
credence Is attached to tho rumor.
The coasting Vessel Helen reported on
her arrival at Liverpool that she was
fired upon by a submarine eight miles
oft the Mersey bar. The torpedo dis
patched by the submarine missed the
aieien ay only a yards.
The steamship Llnhope reported on her
arrival at Shields that a bomb was
dropped 50 yurda from tho vessel Wednes
day night. Tho steamer's crew declared
they distinctly heard an airship over

HO.MU, March 12. Tho Italian Gov
ernment apparently Is niixlous to havo it
become known that It has not Initiated
or urged nny negotiations for territorial
compensation from Austria.
Tho conversation between Prince von
Buelow, tho Gorman Ambassador, and
Premier Salandra had to do with the ne
gotiations, ns likewlso did a conference
between Sir J. Beimell Ttodil, the British
Ambassador, and Baron Sonhlno, tho
Itnllan Foreign Minister.
Military preparations are being pushed
with great vigor, tho Government desir
ing to be rendy for nny contingency.
The Glornnle d'ltalla, commenting on
the reported ngreement between Italy nnd
Germany under which tho former coun
try would be at liberty to attack Aus
tria, provided certain territorial conces
sions were not granted, declares tho mere
fact that such an agreement ultimately
would militate against Austria, which is
fighting closely allied with Germany,
proves tho absurdity ,of such a plan.
LONDON, March 12.
British demands ,for tho surrender of
Smyrna have been rcjeoted by the Gov
ernor of tho Turkish port, and a heavy
bombardment of tho city and nil Its for
tifications 1ms been opened by an English
licet, according to dlBpntchos received
from Athons today.
Tho Governor was given 21 hours to re
move the noncombatant population of tho
city, the dispatches state, before tho
British ships opened fire. Panic ensued
In Smyrna when tho Inhabitants wero
warned to flee.
Tho British fleet operating nt Smyrna.
Is said to consist of three battleships and
four cruisers. A Tcnedoa dispatch states
that two powerful French warships have
also joined tho English vessels.
Two of tho Smyrna forts were badly
damaged by a recent bombardment from
tho guns of tho English cruiser Sapphire,
under command of Captain SomcrvlUo,
but to reach tho main forts It was found
necessary to uso the heavy guns of tho
battleships.
In tho meantlmo tho operations of tho
Allies' Hoot In the Dardanelles are con
tinuing. Lntfst reports state Hint Pott
Olianak Kalesl has been badly damaged
by thr warships' lire. This fort Is one
of tho strongest guarding the narrows,
Into which the French and British wnr
shlps havo thus far been unable to pen
etrate. One of tho mngazlnes tu tho fort
ress was blown up by a shell on Wed
nesday afternoon.
Tcnedoa advices confirm reports Hint
tho fire of the. Turkish forts Is growing
weaker. This Is attributed by olllcials
of the British Admiralty to tho fact that
tho Ottoman garrisons lack ammunition
nnd what they have Is of nn Inferior qunl-
ity.
For tho first time slnco tho Dardanelles
operation and tho bombardment of
Smyrna began tho French War Ofllco
hns admitted that an expeditionary forco
Is en route to Turkoy. In a dlHpntch
received from Paris early today It wns
officially announced such an army Is on
Its wny to the Levant. General d'Am

Morocco, will assume command.
CONSTANTINOPLE, March 12.-An
English landing party, composed of fiom
1000 to 2000 men, wns repulsed at tho
Dardanelles nnd forced to retire to the

ceived hero today. A number of tho
British soldiers were killed.
Tho War Olllco announced that bom

BERLIN DISTRESSED
OVER FRYE'S SINKING
BRITAIN ADDS WOOL
TO CONTRABAND LIST
Extension of Retaliatory Measures
Against England Gazetted.
LONDON. March 12. Official announce
ment was published In the Gazette this
afternoon that raw wool, wool tops, wool
flifits and worsted yarns have been added

This Is another step In England's meas
ures of retaliation ngnlnst Germany.
Copper Iodide, tin, tin ore, skins of var
ious cattle, tea nnd lubricants are also
added to the list of contraband.
Several Philadelphia merchants today
said that England's order making wool
contraband would have very llttto effect
upon business In this city.
Thomas II. Ball, of 15 South 3d street,
said:
"AVo export very little wool, and vir
tually all of It has gono to the Allies.
When It comes to Importing, wo get nl
most nil our wool from the British colo
nies and South America.
"England had already declared an em
bargo on wool, and although It did not
affect us much. It has made wool valua
ble In this country, and wo nro holding
on to all we have. But the great demand
for wool Is virtually over for this sea
son. "Great Britain Is prerured, ns Bho is
working her mills overtime to give work
to the unemployed and the Belgian refugees."

Tho communication was In German,
and Its text was not mado public here,
but It Is understood that the German
communder takes the stand that ho acted
within tho limits of International law,
btcause ihe Fryo carried yellow maize,
which Is at least conditional contraband
when consigned to tho port of a belliger
ent nation.
While the commander's defense was on

WASHINGTON. March 12.
Tho problem raised by tho German
raider I'rinz Kltel Frledrlch overshadow
all other topics at tho Cabinet meeting
today. The decision of tho President to
press the case, particularly with refer
ence to tho sinking of tho Wlllani P.

understood that a further erqeust will bo

aboard the American sailing vessel Wil
liam P. Fryo had sold tho cargo to an
English firm In London while the ves
sel was on tho ocean, Counselor Lansing
said:
"The ship's papers did not show any
record of tho salo and tho German com
mander could not go beyond tho show
ing made by tho papers found upon the
vessel. So far as her status on tho sen.
was concerned, that was determined when
her papers woro taken out."
WASHINGTON, Slarch 12.
Four fast cruisers, three British and
one French, are waiting outside tho Canea
to overhaul and sink the German auxil
iary cruiser rrinz isuei J'riedrlch should
she attempt to put to sea from Newport
News. This was the latest report received
here today.
Great Britain fully expects that a Brit
ish warship will sink tho Prlnz Kltel
Frledrlch, and the British Ambassador
Iisb urged tho United States to Bee that
all but German subjects aro taken off the
steamship oeforo she Is permitted to put
to sea.
Because of tills fact officials nre In
clined to believe that the Eltel will be
interned. Captain Boy-Ed, the German
naval attache. Is at Newpoit News und
will have the final say as to whether the
nuianr win bii am to almost certain de
struction or remain In port to be an asset
to Germany when the war Is over.
The Investlgatlton. directed bv Presi

Captain Klehne and the crew of the

Department for direct examination by
Assistant Secretary Peters in charge of
the department's end of the case.
Any time, any clime,
indoors or out when
hunger nips, the
answer is
"THE RICH YOUNG RULER"
"The etory of the rich young ruler, to
my mind, Is one of tho saddest In tho
New Testament. Itlch In glory and youthi
endowed with wealth, a leader among his
fellows, standing fnco to face with the
Ron of God, deliberately considering, care
fully weighing the loss and tho gain, con
sidering the meaning of tho step, and
calmly turning with a heart llko stona
and going nttny from Jesus. It Is bad
onoiiyh when a young man goes doVn
through hot tomptntlonj It Is bad enough
when olio goes down through Impulse, or
tluough lack of decision plunges Into sin.
It Is bad enough to drift In wrong, but
to calmly consider nnd then turn oho's
back upon Jesus Christ Is tragedy, to
weigh the mennliig of the word and then
say tho price Is too groat.
"I'p lo a certain point this young ruler
was a noblo example. He was thought
ful, doing his best not to mako a ship
wreck, living up to all the light ho had,
for ho said 'All these have 1 kept from
my youth up.' Mn Had no bad habits,
there was nothing vicious nbout his
mako-up.' He was not dlBslpntcd, not
sensual or devilish, had wronged no man,
und wronged no woman, ha did not steal,
honored his father ami his mother. Had
not broken hearts, coutd look the world
In tho face, was not hard-headed. He
bad 'Vpii been a Bible reading young man,
hnd boon a church goer, for he knew the
teachings of Jloses, .went to tho syna
gogue, listened with' rovereiico and te
spectj was not a scoffer, not a doubter,
had not sat In the sent of tho scornful,
nil of which shows that not only tho
notoriously kicked nre lost. A society
woman once naked, ".Must I be saved
tho same as my coachman? Tea. You've
got to bo saved the samo wny. The
hanker has to bo saved In exactly the
snme way as the Janitor who sweeps out
the bank. Tho mine owner has to be
saved In tho samo wny as the miner.
"Thero was nothing In the life of this 1
young ruler which would tend to separate
him from Christ. He was drawn to lilm,
he went on tho run, gladly, hopefully,
evidently exported to stny; there wns
something nbout the heart of .lesus that
responded. When ho readied Jesus ho
knelt, wns not stiff-necked, not top-heavy
with pride. It takes courago to kneel In
public, didn't have a yarn string for a
backbone. The niigels' faces must havo
brightened as they looked upon that scono
of tho young man kneeling there before
Jesus. It Is not childish to pray It's
nmnly. ft shows a man of Iron.
"This young ruler went to Jr-sus with
frankness In his face. There was no at
tempt at concealment, he had lived the
white life, nnd I can hear him say with
candor, 'What lack I yet?' Thero was n.
slight feeling of unrest, ho wns not sure,
nnd no eye less kern tlinn that of Jesus
would have found the flaw. Thero was
not n lodge In the land, not an official
board of nny church that would not havo
felt honored to havo had him lu Its mem
bership. But the eye of Jesus saw the
one cancerous spot, tho 'one thing.'
"Jesus didn't try to make It easy for
Him. When Jesus gave any one some
thing to do with a blessing ho always
made it hard. The blind man made his
wny to tho pool, tho Impotent innii was
remilrcd to pick up his bed nnd walk.
Wo si'om to bo nfrnid nowadays of scar
ing a way people by making the wny of
salvation hard. That's where wo miss It.
Hall bearings on tho church doors will
never (III tho pews.
"The lodges arc crowded, where you
cannot open tho door with n crowbar.
Where tho goat riding Is the hardest the
crowd Is . thickest. A real man shuns
a path carpeted with velvet. God knows
men too well to put gold on top of the
earth, if it rained money none would
even pick up a dollar, Wo are afraid
of scaring people away.
"If people are so touohy as thnt, then
tho sooner thoy nro scared away the bet
ter. If tliey are in earnest there Is
uotldng thnt will scare thrm away. Tho
fellow who Is afraid of the bark of a
dog will nover kill a Hon. No half-way
measures will do. The thing to do Is to
strap tho old Adam in you to the death
chair and turn on all tho electricity in
mo power house. There Is no 'grow
In? Into' salvation; you cannot reason
yourself Into it any moro than you can
reason a boll off the back of your norts.
You can kill a snake quicker by cutting
oft nn Inch of its head than a foot of
Its tall.
"We next co tills young ruler going
away. Ho camo running, but now wo seo
him going away slowly, but lie keeps
going, and worst of nil ho never came
back. You may walk to hell, but vou'll
reach thero Just the same. It's simply
n matter of time.
He went away to bear his trouble
alone, went away to n Clirlstlcss life, n
ife without prayer, without hope, noth
ing to look to but trouble. What profit
did he gain from all bis pllrpi0 tlnd fine
linen and hs sumptuous living! lu. would

Four times the capacity
same office space
When business increased, the bookkeeper and
her assistant with old book ledgers had too
much to do. They called for help, but there
was no place for another desk.
Everybody was stumped, and the problem
was turned over to Library Bureau.
What did we do ?
Installed an L. B. Card Ledger and Desk.
Takes no more space than the old desk, buthas
four times the capacity. Now the bookkeeper,
assisted by the cashier in rush times, can
easily handle all the accounts.
This is the story of a small-city department
store. In the smallest business, as in the
largest, L. B. office equipment affords an
easy, simplified way of doing things.
Samples and booklet on request.
