Assurance that Prance was not "bled white" was giv^ en a large^ gathering at'the City club last night by Stephana Lazanno, editor ot Le Matin ot Paris.

S.-Revised figures Indicate l*lat the loss of lite on the Tus-cnnia probably was considerably more than yostej'day' estimates. It Is now believed rnmpleto returns will show the number of dead to between 100 and 200. 44 Bodies Found Washington, Feb. S.-Advices to the; war (lopartraent accoimting tor all ex-' cept 113 ot tho 2.150 American soldier.s, who wore aboard tho Tuscauia when' she was submarined Tuesday night, remained unchanged today and officials an.tioualy awaited additional details oxpcclud to clear up the conflict with foreign figures on the losses. Cabin press dispatches from an Irish Ijort night saying that 44 bodies of Amerlran soldiers, battered beyond recognition, had been washed ashore !,'> niile.s from the scone ot the torpedoing dampened hope that the troop losses would prove very small. Ac-' cording to figures given In earlier press dispatches only 101 of those on board, including soldiers, members oCi the ch:\v and passesigers were missing. This had led officials to believe that with the heavy loss first Indicated among the crew that most American soldiers had been saved. r A)Tried Captain London, Feb". 8.-The captain of the-Tuscania wa� Peter McLean not J, L.

Satisfac-} , tlou Is expressed and congratulations' ' are extended that this, the first dlsas-., ter to any American troops shows the emptiness of the German boast that tho submarines ^^t�uld render the transportation of the American armies impossible and would Intimidate tha., Americans. Nevertheless, it Irdeclar- ^ ed, it Is too much to hope that: the i^uscanla will be the last victim, though the conviction is expressed that the American' nation realizes fuljy' the difficulties ahead and ia prepared to meet them. Mu>t Matter Subs ^ , Some of tjje editorials say that the submarine menace' has not yet been mastered and remains a grave problem to which the. allies, especially Groat Britidn and the United StatM, must devote all their energies in vjeir of the imperative need of keeping'the Atlantic route open. The Dally Telegraph says: "Tho Americans have defied, tfie pirates all these months and �we are , convinced that tho sorrow atad anger which the loss,of life on the Tuscania will occasion will only steel the hearts, of the people to persevere."' "A thousand raeif will step forward > to fill the gap left vacant by each of the dead," says the Dally Mall.
