ing Against the Government.
New 'iork, June 8.—Five American
citizens and two subjects of the Ger-
man empire, one of them a woman
are named as fellow conspirators in
two indictments returned by a federal
grand jury here today. Investigators

HUGH WHEAT CROP IN VIEW
Government Forecast Indicates a
Yield of 931,000,000 Bushels This
Year—Second Largest Crop.
Washington, June 8.—Today's crop
report of the Department of Agricul-
ture forecasts a total wheat crop in
1918 of 931,000,000 bushels, which is
281,000,000 bushels more than the
final estimate of the 1917 crop.
Winter wheat promises a yield of'
£87,000,000 bushels, which con
with 418,000,000 bushels in 1917. The
winter wheat crop is made and har-
vest has begun In southern sections.
Spring wheat promises a yield of
334,000,000 bushels, allowing for nor-
mal impairment between now and har-
vest. Last year's crop was 233,000,000
Washington, June 6.—The German
submarine raiders again have dis-
closed their position. An announce-
ment from the Navy Department to-
night said the Norwegian steamer
Eidsvold was sent to the bottom at 4
o clock yesterday afternoon, forty
miles off the Virginia Capes. The
entire crew was rescued today by a
navy supply ship. Details of the en-
counter are lacking.
That Is the last word received by
the department showing the raiders'
Position. In thirty hours after the
attack on the Eidsvold nothing has
come to Indicate where the Germans
were or what they were about.
It is evident that the raiders had
been moving steadily southward of
the New Jersey coast. Presumably
they were back yesterday In the re-
gion where they first began opera-
The raiders were closer in shore
when they attacked the Eidsvold than
on any previous occasion, except when
they launched the mines picked up
off the Delaware Capes. The tanker
i Pratt apparently struck one of these
mines, and a number of others, unex
ploded, have been gathered up in the
same vicinity by patrol craft.
The unsuccessful attack on the
French tanker Radioleine yesterdav
niorning off the Maryland coast prob-
ably was hundreds of miles north of
the place where the Eidsvold was
sunk eight hours later.
Whether the raiders are still off the
Virginia Capes, hopeful of intercept

Last Month'! Production Exceeded
That of April by 122,000 Tons,
Shipping Board Says.
Washington, June 8.—Exceeding the
ship production of April by 122,000
tons, the Emergency Fleet Corpora-
tion launched 344,450 deadweight tons
in May, the United States Shipping
Board announced today. There were
launched during the month thirty-nine
steel ships of a deadweight tonnage
of 228,750 and thirty-two wooden ships
totaling 115,700 tons.
The May launchings exceeded April
by twenty-six ships and January bv
fifty-five ships. They also exceeded
the highest monthly average of the
United Kingdom, made in 1913, with
a record of 102,931 tons. They lacked
only 57,886 tons of equaling the Amer-
ican launchings for the entire year of
1901, the record pre-war year in Arner
compares, ing more important craft than thev
1917. The have yet assailed, or are hurrying on
southward, no one here will attempt
It is increasingly evident, as the re-
ports accumulate, that the U-boats
are avoiding armed craft, and the
vigilance of the navy patrol has kept
them far away from the principal
poi s. Their errand in American
waters is mystifying and the only ex-
planation so far found acceptable is
that offered by Secretary Daniels to
members of Congress man attempt to
terrify the United States into recall
of Its fighting ships from European
waters for home defense.

Washington, June 8.—There has
been no let-up in the offensive of the
Amelican and French troops iiguinst
the Germans in the region northwest
I of Chateau Thierry, where in the past
two days severe defeats have b.-. n in-
flicted on the enemy and American
marines have won great praise lor
their valiant fighting.
Battling shoulder to shoulder, over
a front of six miles from Vinly, just
to the northwest of Veuilly-la-l'oterie,
to Ilouresehes, the Americans and
French have captured the towns of
\ euilly-Ia-Poterie and Ilouresehes and
also made progress all along the front.
Previously Torcy had fallen into the
hands of the Americans.
Nowhere on this battle line have the
Germans been able to stay the efforts
of the Allied troops, although they
have fought with great tenacity The
marines everywhere have declined to
take a backward step, going forward
against the enemy even when he had
superiority in numbers.
Get Taste of the Cold Steel.
Close pressed, the marines have
given the Germans a taste of cold
steel, even In the face of machine gun
fire; surrounded they have fought

inasmuch as it is on that part of the
battle front through which the Ger-
mans had hoped to crush their way
forward and attain an open road to

With the American Army in Picardy,
June 8.—As the result of two attacks
by the Americans against the enemy
in the second battle northwest of Cha-
teau Thierry, three hundred prisoners
were captured and the Americans ex-
tended their line over a front of about
six miles to a depth of nearly two and
While the losses of the Americans
necessarily were heavy, owing to the
nature of the fighting, the German
dead is piled three deep in places.
A number of machine guns were
added to the American booty.
The losses to the enemy thus far
are declared to have been extremely
heavy and the terrain they have lost
their way through the gray-coated
lines with their bayonets. From all
accounts there has been no part of
the game of modern warfare In which
the men from overseas have not ex-
celled the enemy.
Marines Push Back Huns.
With the American Army in Picardy,
June 7.—American marines attacked
the Germans at dawn this morning
and gained three and one-half kilo-
meters (21,4 miles) over a 4-kilometer
(2% miles) front and captured one
hundred prisoners in the Chateau
Thierry sector. The French attacking
at the same time on the left took 1G0

Soon after the attack of this morn-
ing the Americans carried Hill I42,
(about two-thirds of a mile south of
Torcy), the highest point in this vi-
cinity, and swept on and stopped at
the foot in a wheat field on the other
side, from where they raked the Ger-
mans with machine guns. One entire

Huns Are Held on the Oise.
With the French Army in France,
June 7.—Continued attempts by the
Germans to extend their lines on the
Oise yesterday met with disastrous
failure. They tried to get around Pont
L Eveque by crossing the Oise in the
neighborhood of the northernmost
point of Carlepont Wood, where the
Washington, June 7- Sinking of
tile British steamer Harpathian one
hundred miles oft the Virginia Capos
at 9 o clock Wednesday morning bv a
German submarine was announced to*
night at the Navy Department The
entire crew was rescued by the steam-
er Palmer, which arrived late today
in Chesapeake Hay. The submarine
used a torpedo. One member of the
Ilritish crew was injured. The Har
pathian was a freighter of 2,800 net
Only meager details had reached the
department late tonight. The ship
went down in seven or eight minutes
and it is regarded a* probable that,
unlike other vessels attacked off the
American coast, it was struck without
warning. All Britis'i steamers plying !
through the Aar zone are armed, but I
110 mention of an armed guard wus j
made in the navy reports.
Hie submarines operating off the I
coast had not been heard from since 1
the Norwegian steamer Eidsvold was
sent down at 5 o'clock Tuesday after-
noon some forty miles off the Virginia
Capes. The Harpathian was sunk
about sixty miles further out to sea
indicating that the underwater craft
had gone further into the Atlantic to
escape patrol boats.
The fact that the submarines are
braving the dangers of the patrols,
which are converging around the area
of operations, leads officials to believe
that the raiders are waiting for much
bigger prey than they have yet found.
The place where they have operated
most recently is in the lane of travel
up and down the coast and through
it must pass much of the important I
shipping going in and out of tho Vir- !
The sinking of the Harpathian I
bungs the total of vessels known to
have been sent down on this side of
the Atlantic by the raiders to fourteen
—six steamers and eight schooners.

Chicago, June 7.—"Blind" orders for
a Nation-wide strike of commercial
telegraphers were Issued by Interna

MAY INSURE BANK DEPOSITS
A Senate Measure Now Pending
Would Provide Guarantee for
Sums Less Than $5,000.
Washington, June 7. — National
banks' opinions of the bill pending In
the Senate providing for federal guar-
antee of national bank deposits of less
I hen J."1,000 was asked by Comptroller
of the Currency Williams yesterday in
a circular letter. He explained that
propaganda has developed recently
against the measure, which was initi-
ated on the comptroller's recommenda-
tion, and that it is desirable to dis-
cover the source of the criticism.
Arguments for the bill, presented by
the comptroller, are that It would
bring millions of hoarded dollars from
hiding places, afford complete security
to more than 16 million depositors and
prevent runs on national banks.
