tiun'H history was passed unatil.

After seven hours of discussion the
nclmini.stratinn measure which wan
passed liy the house last Saturday and
which provides for a limn to the al-
lies of $3.li0.0ii000 was approved
by tho senate with a few changes in

great war chest at Its disposition. To
expedite action the senate tonight ap-
pointed conferences to act if the house
should not contrary to expectations
accept the senate changes.
Of the 84 members present tonight
everyone Including ull those who
voted against war except Senator
Lane of Oregon who was absent n
account of Illness recorded themselves
In favor nf providing th funds to
prosecute hostilii b-n. Nearly ull of the
12 absentees were III.
Short mi Men Give Money.
That In the Inability of the nation
to supply men at once for the fight-
ing lines money should be America's
immediate contribution to her allies
was the dominant thot expressed dur-
ing the debate. Few senators partici-
pated in the discussion which was
totally devoid of partisan expression.
Kvery senator speaking favored prose-
cuting the war to speedy conclusion.
Only two Senators Rorah and Cum-
inlni declared oppostion to the pro-
posed allies' loan. A few advocated
raising a larger proportion by taxa-
tion of the present generation and
less upon bonds.
Amendments adopted by the senate
Limiting deposits of proceeds from
the honds In banks to the amount
subscribed by the banks and their
depositors; permitting deposits of pro-
ceeds In state banks Rnd trust com-
panies ns well as federal reserve
banks; providing for exchange by sub-i-erlbers

ing the secretary of the treasury to

reeds December 31 and annually
thereafter and exempting the
J2. 000 000 000 of treasury indebtdness

ation except estate and inheritance
Short Vote Announced.
By mistake it was first announced
that 83 senators had voted for the
bill. A corrected tally showed tho
vote 84 with as the vice-president an-
nounced "the nays being nay."
With the passage of the bill accom-
plished treasury officials turned their
attention to the details of policy yet
to be settled in the actual issuance
of the bonds.
While the senate was still debating
the measure Secretary McAdoo con-
l"ired informally with meinhers of
the advisory council of the federal re-
serve board Including J. 1. Morgan

ATTEMPT BY U-BOAT
ON U. S. SHIP FAILS
Torpedo Misses Destroyer
Smith 30 Yards; Seen Off
RoSTON April 17. The war was
brought to the shores of this country
today when the I'nlted states do-
stroyei Smith reported by radio that
an enemy submarine had tried un-
successfully to torpedo her one hun-
dred miles south of New York at 3:30
this morning. Additional reports wero
received from tho destroyer tonight
and were forwarded to Washington.
Nothing of an official nature regard-
ing the additional reports was made
public here. A suggestion in shipping
circles that the lookout on the Smith
hail perhaps mistaken a large fish for
a torpedo in the uncertain light of
the early morning met with the reply
that the Smith's officers stood by
their original statement.
The Smith's ItcHirt.
The navy department's version of
the original statement was:
"Reported from Fire island light-
ship to the naval stations at Huston
and New York nt 3:30 on the 17th
on enemy submarine was sighted by
tho I'niteel States ship Smith run-
ning apparently submerged. Subma-
rine fired a torpedo at tho I'nlted
Stutes ship Smith which missed her
by thirty yards. The wake of the
torpedo was plainly seen across the
bow. Submarine disappeared."
Whether the swift destroyer
dashed for the spot where the L'-boat
was thot to be lurking was not known
by officers who had seen the Smith's
report of the accident. Neither could
it be learned here whether there was
a chance for the Smith's quick firers
to come into action. It was learned
however that another destroyer
passed near the position mentioned
in the Smith's report without sight-
ing anything unusual.
WASHINGTON April 17. Warn-
ing of tho probable presence of a Ger-
man submarine off the Atlantic coast
was sent broadcast to all ships early-
today upon receipt at the navy de-
partment of a report from the de-
stroyer Smith on patrol duty that a
torpedo hud crossed her bows during
No further word came from the
Smith tonight. Navy officials some
of whom are strongly inclined to the
belief that the destroyer's lookout
was mistaken In his belief that he saw
the wake of a torpedo are awaiting
with keen interest additional reports
received late today at ltoston.
