Pursuit continued until 9.30 o'clock, five or six shells in the meantime striking the steamer. The captain ol Ihe Hoanmore stopped his engines and hoisted sisneis, that lie intended to abandon the ship, but the submarine continued to shell her as boats were belli" lowered, and when they were in the water the .occupants were drenched by sprays from fall ag shells' Tlie submarine then headed i'for tlio life boats, while one of the officers shouted "get out of our way or we will run you but swerv- ed when near the boats, passed them Paris, Nov. village of Barakli-Aiunia in the Struma sec- tor of the Macedonian front, was captured last night by British troops.
