SUNK WITHOUT WARNING President Wilson Hurries Back To Washington ' To Confer With Lenders. X Washington, Jan. 4. Tho now submnrlno crisis was practically at a standstill today while tho government awaited developments of the exact facta of the operations of tho Teutonic submerslblcs in tho Mediterranean. Late today, after conferring with President Wilson, Secretary Lansing sent orders to tho American consuls at Alexandria, Malta and Cairo to gather at onco all available affidavits from the Persia survivors and to cable summaries. The idea Is to bring in definite information speedily. There were evidences that administration leaders, whllo not In the least minimizing the dangers and possibilities of the latest complications brought on by tho destruction of the llnor Persia, were anxious that the public mind should not bo Inflamed further while tho President and his advisers wero trying to suspend Judgment and all the agencies of tho government were In motion to collect all tho factB upon which the next movo may bo made. Secretary Tumulty Issued .this statement from tho President: "Tho President and tho Secrotary of State are taking every means possible to obtain tho full facts in this grave matter and will act Just &i soon as tho information Is obtained." For the first timo slnco foreign relations became delicate during tho war, President Wilson today conferred with the leaders of tho Congressional committees which deal with tho subject, and It was afterward announced that they wero to be advised of the steps and developments InJtho situation. This action met the approbation of many Senators and Representatives who have been contending that in such a serious situation as the pres ent promises to become, Congress .should be consulted In any moves which may Involve tho country In measures at least short of war. Attack Deferred. An expected attack on the administration's policy probably was avoided by a hasty adjournment of tho Senate within ten minutes after it assembled, and there was no Indication of an outbreak in the House. A meeting of the State Foreign Relations Committee tomorrow, at which the subject was expected to como up, was deferred until later in tho week, awaiting further information, lead-cr- s said. At tho White House and at tho State Department the tension of tho crisis was evident, but there was an atniosphoro of moving carefully and surely. Tho President, who arrived this morning from Hot Springs, Va., Instructed Secrotary Lansing to bring immediately to tho White Houso any now information which came to hand, and then busied himself reading tho official dispatches so far received and getting in touch generally with tho situation. Tho Administration Is depending largely on tho Inquiries which Ambassador Penfleld has beon Instructed to mako at Vienna and that which consuls aro gathering elsewhere, to establish tho nationality of tho -sub-marl- no showing ,tho contentions of tho United States and 'tho extent of Germany's acqulesccncer was sent to tho American diplomatic representatives In Turkey and Bulgaria, and also was delivered to tho diplomatic representatives of tho two countries In Washington.

The demand for the acid la so strong at present that every effort is being made to utilize old and abandoned establishments and to erect new plants. In view of the difficulties in the way of the production and utiliza tion of sulphuric acid for fertilizer purposes, the Bureau of Soils nas endeavored to develop a commercial method, Involving the use of the electric furnace for manufacturing phos- coke. Tho nitrogen contained in tho coal Is evolved as ammonia nnd is caught and neutralized with sulphuric acid. Formerly all coke was mado In tho beehive oven which did not provldo for tho confinement of gases produced. tho combustible Thesp wero burned as evolved and the ammonia carried by them was like-wis- e lost. The 'domestic production of ammonium sulphato from the coko oven Is only one-fift- h of what It could be were the beehlvo oven entirely displaced by more mod ern types. During tho past few years thero has been a slow transition from tho use of tho beehive oven. It is not imperative, therefore to re sort to extreme measures to increase the production of ammonia. Another source of njtrogen Is found In garbage. Tho investigation of tho Dureau of Soils Indicate that It tho garbage of all cities having a population of 30,000 and over wero converted into garbage tankage the product would be worth for fertiliz er purposes at least $3,500,000. In view of the present situation immed iate steps should be taken by all municipalities to conserve tho garb age and to make It available for use In the fertllzer trade. Cheap Water Power Sought. Tho Bureau of Soils is studying also the problem of the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen with a view to developing a method for the production of ammonium phosphate nnd other forms of concentrated fertilizers. No ammonium phosphate is being' made in this country at the present time. It cheap water power, phosphate rock, coal and limestone can be found in accessible localities the possibility of making this material on a commercial scale is considered entirely feasible. The greatest difficulty here is to discover cheap water power at points where phosphate rock, coal and limestone are readily available.. The department is making eyery effort to locate available sources of developed water power which can be used In the manufacture of ammonia phosphate It must not be understood that the suggestions which are now being put forth, will result In immediate relief for farmers. There are a number of technical problems which have to bo solved It these fertilizers are to be .produced on a commercial scale, and, even It the funds for the necessary plants were provided, either from private or public sources considerable time necessarily would be required for the erection of the t i!

Words which by uaturo havo u wide latitude of real and metaphorical meaning are fettered to a sin glo significance by the custom of using them more commonly in one way than In another.

I was hardly able to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles of CarduL I began to feel Ilkea new woman. I soon gained 35 pounds, and now, I, do all my housework, as well as run a big water mill. I wish every suffering woman would give ! A a trial. I still use Cardui when I feel a little bad, and it always does me good." Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness, tired, worn-ofeelings, etc., are sure signs of womanly trouble. Signs that you need Cardui, the woman's tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardui for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing women for more than fifty years, ut The Woman's. Tonic.

ARMY MAY ADAPT NEW BUGLE SLEEPY SOLDIERS WILL HEAR REVEILLE SOUNDED ON NEW FRENCH TRUMPET. i I Washington, Jan. 1. Sleepy soldiers in the United States are going to be startled some morning at reveille by Indications of an enemy's approach. They are going to hear a bugle they are not used to. That" is, they are going to it the tchlef of staff finally favors adoption of French trumpets Instead of the present army bugle, which is considered probable. The question of a change in bugles arose when it was pointed out to the department that the instruments now used, known as the high pitch have been superseded practically everywhere else by the low or international pitch. Immediately experiments were begun. Upon the recommendation of the president of tho Cavalry Board, and by authorization of Secretary Garrison, the military attache of the United States Embassy In Paris was illrcctcd to purchaba for trial by a regiment of cavalry tho following standard Instruments of tho French army; thirty trumpets, two brass cavalry trumpets four hunting horns urnl ten music books. When tho instruments wcro.recelv-e- d they were sent to Fort Sim Houoton, Texas, for trial by tho Thltd Cavalry. A report of tho re suit of tho trial has been received by tho War Department. It was decided that tho French trumpets permit of a greater amount at limbic than could be obtained troiu tho ireseut army bugles on account of extra notes. A great musical proficiency, howover, Is required In performing upon tho French trumpets, And the matter that is now being considered Is whether tho class of men from whom tho regimental trumpeters arc selected could acquire tho requisite skill. In tho test, It took four months of practlco before tho trumpeters could pass in review at a gallop. Tho matter of revision of tone is not restricted to bugles, however. This question Includes all army conclusively demonstrated and ex perts should conform to the general musical usage In the United States. If approved by Secretary Garrison, the Quartermaster General will soon begin the work of changing the' pitch of every army band in the United States. It is. believed by high authorities that the change can ,ba made In all the brass Instruments by the use of slides ,but this can not be done with wood Instruments. The latter can not be altered. The change would affect the militia as well as the regular army and the extent of tho problem Is .causing considerable discussion. It la probable that In the event of the change being ordered, a small supply of new Instruments, both brass and wood, will be ordered and old Instruments tested, to determine which can be made to conform to the now pitch. . the sinking of tho British steamer Persia with the loss of at least ono American life before action Is taken in this matter by tho American GovMonday. ernment, which, is represented by Steamer Persia.
