/ SEAADOERS STING
IN SOUTH PACIFIC,
ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1917.
GERMAN RAIDER STRANDS
ISLAND OF MOPHA; CREW
SEIZE FRENCH VESSEL
LUTERE AND ALL HANDS
Put to Sea in Captured Ship Leaving
Prisoners Who Later Reach
Tutila in Safety
Washington, Oct. 4.-Two German
commerce raiders commanded by two
of the famous "sea adders" are now
stranded on the Mopha Islands in the
South Pacific after roaming the south
seas for seven months preying upon
American and allied shipping, accord-
ing to the report received tonight
from the. commander of the national
station at Tutila, Samoan Islands.
The dispatch transmitting the story
of the capture of the American schoon-
erC. Slade, one of the Seattle victims,
wap sent on Sept. 29, several weeks
after the two new raiders left Mopha
The first put to sea on Aug. 21, and
the second on Sept. 5. Before com-
ing to grief on Aug. 2, the "sea adders"
had added the American schooner, A.
B. Johnston, Manila and Slade to the
list, and at least 12 allied vessels
which were sunk earlier this year
in the South Atlantic ocean.
The raider, according to the ad-
mirality report, arrived at Mopha
July 31. Two days later she stranded
on the island, a total loss, the master
and crew, with 27 white men and 17
natives prisoners making shore in
safety. The company remained there
until Aug. 21 when three officers and
two men put to sea in a motor sloop
" with' machine guns, rifle bombs, and
about two months' supplies.
The remainder of the crew remained
on the island until Sept. 5, when the
French. schooner, Lutere, arrived at
Mopha and was seized.
The Germans immediately put to sea
in her. Their prisoners were left on
the almost desolate island, but on
dept 19, 36 of the prisoners departed
.in an open boat and reached Tutila 10
days later. They were badly in need
of food and water.
MEXICO'S CELEBRATION HELD
WITHOUT DROP OF LIQUOR
Mexico City, Oct. 4.-Drunkenness
was absolutely eliminated from the
107th celebration of the anniversary of
Mexico's independence. All bars, sa-.
loons and places where liquor is sold
were closed on the night of Sept. 14,
and were not reopened until Sept. 15.
On the night of Sept. 15, when the
president of the republic rang the
same bell used by Hidalgo to summon
the people when he proclaimed the
independence of Mexico from Spain,
the Zocalo or plaza before the national
palace was filled with a crowd of
more than 55,000 persons and it is be-
lieved there was not an intoxicated
person among them. Throughout the
three days of celebration, the streets
9! the capital were filled with people,
horns were blown, confetti was scat-
tered, and horseplay was indulged in
but there were no serious disorders.

The Allenel and Whitney hotels

"How do our patrons like it? Why
any patriotic citizen if asked to eat
meat or wheat on these days would
be insulted," was the reply received
from the Whitney hotel.
"All our patrons were satisfied,"
said the Allenel management.
Restaurants served more fish Wed-
nesday than they do as a rule on Fri-
days. One fish dealer complained that
he could scarcely fill hi orders and
that there was a decided increase in
next week's orders already.

bread on Wednesdays had taken a de-
cided drop'and that rye and graham
bread orders had been substituted to a

Do Their Bit
With subscriptions for the second
Liberty loan of $3,000,000,000 on the
increase in every federal reserve dis-
trict, its promoters are confident of
an early, successful conclusion. New
York's subscriptions reached a total
of $135,000,000 Wednesday. The
amount was aided by two $10,000,000
subscriptions from the United States
Steel corporation and the Mutual Life
Insurance company. Nearly 37,000 mu-
nicipal employees in New York who
subscribed to the first issue will take
some of the second loan bonds.
Chicago has revived the Four-Min-
ute Men, speakers, who will talk in
theaters and public assemblies for the
fund. The Chicagoans have organized
themselves into squadrons called
"Bankers," "Lawyers/' "Knights of
Columbus," "Masonic," "B. P. 0. E.',
and "Woodmen of the World." The
volunteer system used is working well.
Speakers of foreign tongues will take
the campaign into the settlements of

cans are coming to the front with
Although their pay is small, it is
