They that have been ernnied the nrivlleire of vlewlnc her 313 feet of length and 30 feet of beam have found plenty to Intercut them. She Is dull bui-- 1. of nbout the shade of gun metal. Perhaps ten feet uf her bulk rises above the water level nnd fifteen feet remain submerged by her weight. Her conning tower Is spacious and Is located about the centre of her deck. She carries two masts and l propelled on tho surface by two Die- sel englnos. Under deck, fore and aft, are two storage rooms for freight that must not be exposed to dampness, but the bulk of her fielght Is to be car- ried In the bulge of her sides, some- thing after the fashion that a burro carries tho Spanish type of side pack. Her engine runs through the centre of her Innards a mass of machinery complicated to tho untrained eye. Quarters Arc Tho olllcers' quarters nre forward, and on the starboard side, neat little cabins, about seven feet by seven nnd high';,\ \ \ cclltnged enough for head room.

Her red, white and black Hag dipped, Three sailors swung their f.i nnd cheered. At fi A. M. the sub- marine slipped Into her berth. The customs authorities went aboard shortly afterward. Guy W. Steele.1 Surveyor of the Port, satisfied himself Immediately that the purely trading character of tho ship wns not to be disputed. Rxcept for live revolvers, the personal property of the officers, there were no nrms of any sort aboard, and the submarine Is not equipped with a torpedo tube. A rorket rllle, the device used to fire signalling rockets, was O. K.'d by Unrle Sam and then, after general handshaking, Steele left, placing two of his Inspectors on watch until the dutlalilo cargo wan removed. At noon Capt, Koenlg canui ashore to go through the custom house routine. He called on Collector Wllllai G. Hyan and heard from hi in thnt Baltimore had sent out the Mm Iron ship, had the first railroad, had been the first city to use gas for lighting and wns, therefore, par- ticularly pleased to welcome the first cargo carrying submarine. Hyan did most of the talking, Koenlg then presented his pnpem to the marine clerk. They show that tho cargo consists of 3,i40 cases of s, aniline dyes largely, on which the duty Is 30 per cent., so that thu Government will be well In pocket Mirough the arrival of the Deutschland, HILL OF Historic Document Issued by Con- ns! at Hremen.

WASitiyqTON, July 10. Pending further investigation the United States will view the German submarine Deutschland a-- s an undersea freight ship entitled to ply Its trade between German and American ports. This Government's preliminary attitude was determined to-d- on an lnfnrm.il report of Collector Hyan of Baltimore, who stated that the Deutschland did not carry arms, that she was manned by a merchant crow and that her pnprs were In order. Acting Secretary of State Polk necmeu to accept the presumption thnt the Deutschland Is n merchant ship, but uy uireciion oi tnc state Department Capt. C. K. Hughes of the Navy, formerly Inspector of shins eral Board, has been assigned to give .in cxpen opinion as to whether the Deutschland Is or Is not a warship. He will be assisted by other naval olTlcein. .nennwniie the British and French Gov- - ernments have communicated whnt amounts to a nrotest nmlno ihe Deuchland's presence In nil Amrl,.im port. The form of this communication is a request for the United States to de- termine the exnet status of the vessel. Mr. KiTday, who Is In charge of the British Embassy, had a conference with Mr. Polk and pointed out the position which his Government takes with to the undersea boat. The itritih nnd French Governments are determined to make every effort to prevent the estab- lishment of an undersea trade route be tween uermany and the United Statei. Great Btltaln's general line of argu- ment Is that the Deutschland U in env.-- t a warshlv even though unarmed. Ac- cording to German maritime law she mny properly he converted into an armed vessel on the high seas. Gtrmany, In practice, has converted uirirmcd ships Into warships at e.i on seeral occasions since the piesent war began, Capt. Hughes In his Investigation will give particular attention to the ques-tlo- n whether there are gun mounts hid. den In the ship's construction, whether' she Is so built as to permit the mount- - I tig of gun.s or nrlrac of torpedoes, He is an expert on matters or thlx nature The report has reached here nnof. flcially that the German officers will object to an examination of this nature, it is niifle.1 that no one, not even an olllcer detailed by the United States Government, will he permitted to Inves- - ugaie tno secrets of the vessel, this ow- ing to the fear of discovery of German naval secret. At the State Department, however. It waa intimated that Mleh nh- - jectlons will be epeedlly disposed of slid the Deutschland will submit to any detailed examination which Capt. Hughes wishes to make or put to sea within twenty-fou- r hours, Besides endeavoring lo prevent the deparluis of the Deulschlnnd from Bal- timore the British Government Is ready to make very emphatic plot eel ngalnst any shipment of rubber In Germany. This article Is lliulsrstiiml In lis sorely needed by Germany, nm rauorls are llist pari is! ihe Deutsi'lilrtnif's return onrgn will be rubber. The lirltlsh nt lis permitted shipments of rub- ber from lirltlsh colonies to the United States on lb. distinct understanding that none of It will reach Germany or her allies, Therefore, any ntlempt to ship rubber by ths Deutschland will Immedi- ately Involve ths United States In con- troversy with Great Britain, Alleare Crew la from Xavr. Great Britain and Trance lay stress on ths contsntlon that ths crow of the Deutschland may be made up of mon. Mr, Polk said1 y the question whether or not they were re, sorvlsts would be Inveatlgnted, Also a thorough Investigation will be mails with ft view to determining whether they are or have ever been under German Ad- miralty orders. It Is understood the men are ready to- - muke affidavits that they have never served In the Ueunun navy. Much Is made In Entente circles of the probability that no crew could be picked up and put In charge of a tub-mari- like the Deutschland unless they had had previous experience with this type of vessel. And It Is contended this means that they must have had service In the German navy. American naval officers are not Inclined to share this view, Familiarity with Diesel engines nnd special men for the storage bat- teries are all that Is needed, they say, Secretary Daniels called a special con- ference y to discuss the Deutsch- land ense. Those who participated were Bear Admiral Benson, Bear Admiral Griffin, chief of the bureau of steam engineering; Chief Constructor Taylor. Read Admiral Benson later had a eon.

As the normal American consumption of German nnd Austrian dyestufls the war was about 3?,n00 tons n year, the TOO tons which the subma- rine Deutschland Is supposed to have brought to Baltimore will neither up- set the market nor end the color famine. But the firms nmong which the Deutsch-land'- s enrgo N likely to be distributed are grateful and happy. They are sure other submarine boats will run the blockade, nnd they expect satisfying, If Irregnlnr, shipments hereafter. Nnno of the chemical nnd dye com- panies mentioned as being the probable cnns';nee of the U boat's precious load has received definite word that they are so favored. Herman A.

OF UNDERSEA LINE Will furry tlic Mails nnil Ciiriro Without Hritish In- terruption. BAi.TiMor.n, July 10, Capt. Paul Koenlg of the Deutschland gave out a written statement this afternoon dealing prlnclpilly with the tirean-Ilhedeiel- 's plan to establish a line of submarine cargo carriers and with general condi- tions In Germany nnd In the countries' of her allies. The statement follows : \The submarine DeutscVand. which I have the honor to command. Is the first of several submarines built to the order of the Deuts. he oze G. M. B. H., Bremen, \She will be followed by the Bremen shortly, 'Tlie Idea of the building of this sub- marine emanated from Alfred I)htr.ann, then president of the Bremen Chamber of Commerce He brought his idea in the fall of last eur ronlidentlatly before a siirill cln ! of friends and the Idea was taken up at once. A company was formed under tho name of Deutsche G M. II. II., and the Gerniam.iwerft Kell was entiustcd with the building of the Mibn-a- i lues. \The board of dliectors Is composed of Alfred Lohmann, president of the board: Phlllpp Ileineken, general mali- nger of the Norddeulscher Lloyds: P. M. Herrmann, mating, r of the Deutsche Bank. Carl Staplefcldt, manager of the Norddetitschei I.lo.wl, has taken over the management of the company. \We have brought a most valuable cargo of dyestufTs, which havo been so much needed for months in America and whkli the ruler of the seas has not allowed the great American republic to Impirt While England will not al- low anyUidy thu same right on the ocean because she rules the waves, we have by means of the submarine com- mend d to break this rule. Our boat has a displacement of about 2,000 tons and a speed of mre than fourteen knots. Needliss to say that we are quite un-- a i nnd and only a peaceful merchant- man. \Hecardlng things In Germany, I may mention that everybody Is convinced of the full dual victory of the German arms and those of our allies. All facts of the Inst twenty-tw- o months go to prove that there Is no doubt of this. All I'l land and Kurland, a country of the size of two-thir- of Germany, have been for twelve months under peaceful uile, nnd the entire country has been put under the plough nnd thousand of ncres will provide the next wintir's sup. ply of foodstuffs. Bains nnd waim weather In April and May have hrought a ciMp in view all over Germany, Bulgaria and Turkey, finer thnn In a century, \All Serbia, Monlenegro and a great part of Albanln are In tho same position. Besides Belgium, of Kronen Is In German possession and all In n nourishing agricultural state. So there Is really not the least anxiety for tin British attempt of trying to kill by star vatlou 100,000,000 Orrmnn and Aus Irian children nnd women and non-co- batants, the most devilish plan ever tried by any nation In the world, \Our boats will carry across the the malls and b.ivc them from British Interruption, \Wo trust that Ihe old friendly rela tlonshlp wllh the United States, going back lo Ihe days of Washington, when it wns Prussia who was the llrst to help America in Its light for freedom from British rule, will awake afresh In your beuutlful and powerful country.\ Cnnniln.
