Take Still More U.S. Victims Kave Not Yet Been Blocked in Their Operations Off the American Coast. Boston, June 5.-The crew of the Gorman submarine which sank the schooner Jacob B. Haskell were under orders to sink every American ship they could find, but to spare all lives possible, according to members of the Haskell's crew. The men arrived last niaht from an Atlantic port where they were landed yesterday by the coastwise steamer Grecian, which rescued them at sea. Gustav Nelson, seaman on the Haskell,- said the submarine commander spoke perfect English and was so polite that he got on his nerves. After he had posted his men about the schooner they stood there grinning, while he asked forjlhe ship's papers. Then he ordered the American flag hauled down and wrapped it up in the papers. Then the cook remarked; "You had better take the food we have on board before you sink the boat." The captain snapped back; "We don't want your food. Wb have enough of our own. We don't want your lives either; we want your ships. Now get away from here. You have three minutes before the ship goes down." ANOTHER VICTIM Nevj .York, June 5.- The Am-erjcan auxiliary schooner Samuel C. Mcngcl is another victim of submarine attack. Shs was sunk: Sunday afternoon 175 miles off New York and eleven men of her creyv were brought h�re today by A jbanish steamship. MORE SURVIVORS.

If it proves to he a fact that tho invaders are unable to dislodge tho French from VlUers-Coltoreta Wood, the great natural barrier that has aid; Brt in stemming the drive to tho westl it is thought that General l''och may see sufficient promise ot success to warrant counter strokes alone this line. The German position as it stand? today is open to attack, provided tlio hilled commander feela that he caii risk the man power that would be required to deliver telling blows. Isolated Attacks London, June 4.-rFrora drives on wide fronts the German offensive in France has deteriorated into isolated attacks along the areas between Sols-sons and Shateiu-Thierry and cast-, ward on the Jl.trne, in the general direction ot Rheims. Although in these attacks the, enemy still is using large effectives and great numbers of guns, he is beluR held almost everywhere from further progress and on various sectors compelled to assume tho defensive against vicious blows delivered by the French, British and American troops. Full confidence in tho outcome oC the war again has been expressed by the supreme war council ot the allies, which has just gone over the entire situation resulting from the big Ger- ' man offensive, allhough it was stated that the allied nations "may be still exposed lo critical days." The report of the council says that the aid ot the American troops will make it impossible for the enemy to gain victory by wearing out the allied rescrvo.s before he has exhausted hln own.
