CAPTURE GERMAN
OPiRCYGCHRGE
Ernest Schiller Locked Up in Dela-
ware After Taking British
Ship
THREATENS TO BLOW UP BOAT
Lewes, Delaware, Mar. 30.-A tall,
blond-haired young German, giving
his name as Ernest Schiller, is in the
lock-up here tonight, charged with pi-
racy for having captured a British
ship with a crew of 56 single handed
on the high seas.
Schiller stowed away on the Brit-
ish steamship Matoppo in Hoboken
and crawled out of the lifeboat at 8:00
o'clock last night as the steamship
had cleared Sandy Hook. With two
ugly-looking revolvers, Schiller made
his way to the cabin of Captain Rich-
ard Bergner, and took charge of the
jvessel.
He kept the British captain a prison-
er in his cabin while he smashed the
{ wireless outfit. Schiller then marched
the two wireless operators to the
captain's quarters and sent for the
second engineer, to whom he issued
instructions to keep the vessel on
its course during the night. He finally
was captured and his plans were frus-
trated.
Schiller threatened to blow up the
ship if the crew failed to obey his or-
ders, and durinkg the whole night his
every command wag obeyed. After

Paris, March 30.-After 12 days of
comparative quiet in the Douaumontt
region, the Germans renewed their in-
fantry attack in this sector today.E
There had been heavy artillery bom-
bardments of the French lines here
for some days in preparation for the
attack and the assault was accompan-
ied by the throwing of burning liquids.
The attack was completely repulsed.r
Shortly afterwards a second attack
was launched and again the efforts.
resulted in failure. The German
losses in both attacks were consid-
erable.
Last night the Germans made sev-
eral counter-attacks against the
French position in the Avancourt
wood. All the attacks were repulsed
by the French fire with heavy losses.,

MEXICAN ASSAILANT SEEKS RE-
VENGE FOR MURDER OF
FAMILY
HAD DEALT WITH AMERICANS
No Details of Battle Given; Message
Received Stating That Outlaw
Was Shot in Leg
BULLETIN
San, Antonio, Mar. 30.-General
Funston announced this afternoon
that'no supplies had been shipped
from El Paso via the . Mexican
Northwestern railroad. He re-
fused to say when they would be
shipped.
Field Headquarters, American Ex-
peditionary Forces, Colonia Dublan,
Chihuahua, Mar. 29.-By motor truck
to Columbus, Mar. 30.-It has been
learned here that Francisco Villa
nearly lost his life a few days ago on
the Carrolitos ranch, a short distance
from this place, where he tortured
and put to death five Mexicans. One
of his victims leaped upon him and
was strangling hint when the Villista
officers beat him senseless with the
butts of their guns.
Mucho Polanco was the name of the
Mexican who almost succeeded in end-
ing Villa's career. The murder of five
members of the Polanco family was
said to have been intended as a warn-
ing to other Mexicans against having
dealings with Americans.
Investigation showed that the Po-
lanco family was involved with no po-
litical faction in Mexico but that they
had the record of uniform honesty
and reliability in dealing with the
American manager of the Corralitos
ranch, where they were born and
reared.
FIGHT WITH VILLA
San Antonio, Mar. 30. - Fighting
three days ago between the Villista
troops and a detachment of Carranza
forces near Duerrero was reported to-
day by General Pershing to General
Funston. No details of the engage-
ment were given, but General Pershing
said Villa forces were mioving south.
It was believed Villa was with them.
Other despatches received at- head-
quarters from General Pershing deal
with routine matters and contain no
mention of a fight by American*troops
with Villistas, or intimation that he
has been trapped.
