LOSS MAS TREBLED
I.N   THREE   MONTHS
1 ondon, Feb. 2.- -The Daily News
gives prominence to an article by Its
navai correspondent, who calls attention to the gravity of German suh-
marine activity. The writer says he
fears the real seriousness of the Oer-
man ram] aign against merchant
shii ping is not realized by a majority
of the British people, and adds:
"The daily record of ships sent to
the bottom has become so regular a
feature in the newspapers that no
particular notice is taken of i: un-
|less unusual atrocity characterizes

The correspondent says that when
: Germany's   submarine   blockade   be- j
|gan  in   February,   1915,  the  Pritish i
' Admiralty Issued weekly statements I
of losses, but says, that after a pcrie-l I
of thirty-five weeks this was discon-
Inued. During that period the weekly average loss was five vessels, but
uring   the   past   three   months   the
rate of losses has nearly trebled.
Tre writer gives statistics showing
thai in the past ninety-live d:\y- 186
ships were sunk, of which 157 were
British, lie continues thai although
neutral boats sunk considerably out-
Inumbered   the  British,   the  loss   to

AMERICANS STARTED   FIGHT.
*
Douglas. Ariz., Feb. 2.—Claiming
that the fighting was caused by an
attempt at cattle rustling by Americans, General Francisco R. Serrano,
Military Commander of Sonora, ta-
sued the following official statement
at his headquarters in Guaymas:
"The truth Is that some American
filibusters attacked our garrison at
Casa de Piedra on the Mexican side
of the line and were repulsed by our
troops after a ehort exchange of
shots.
"In that region where the Incident
look place rTiere have been very frequent Incursions by cattle ruBtlere
from the American side of the line
and ihat is why we are compelled to
redouble our vigilance on that portion of the border."
:-:ove. Ten years at least will be
Leaded to construct the new tonnage
required.
"Since the outbreak of the war,
more than 5,000,000 tons of ocean
tonnage have been destroyed; 4,-
400,000 interned, and 12,000,000
tons commandeered, leaving only
28,600,000 tons out of the 50,000,-
000 tons in use at the beginning of
the conflict.
"Vessels are heinc driven so hard
that authorities in the shipping
world say that most of them will be
in the scrap hea-i in two years. They
also show that we must have 60,-
000,000 tons in the water by 1919
to move the world's commerce. Nearly 36,000,000 tons, it is estimated,
must he built new. Where is It coming from?
"The 'sent capacity of the world
is less '...an 3,000,000 tons in 1.284
(shipyards, and two-thirds of these
yards now have contracts running
from 1919 tn 1923. The increased
| capacity of a number of these yards
is limited by th" supply of encines
and steel plates. Steel mills in the
United States are more than 11,000,-
000 tons behind In orders, for steel.
"The opportunity of the Pacific
coast is here. Steel ships are limited
by the supply of material and the
steel shipyards have all the orders
they can take care of for some time.
It looks as If wooden ships, are to
be the coming commerce carriers.
The law material is here on the Pacific coast for building such vessels
and semidiesel engines also can be
built on the coast. This gives ns our
great opportunity, and we should
seize it."
