Officials at the British naval station
at Esquimault, where the vessel was

The Liepzig was last heard of at
San Francisco two weeks ago when
she cruised around off the Golden
Gate. When she finally disappeared
local shipping circles believed she
had departed for the Samoan island,
here nearest home port.
It was presumed that the German
cruiser Nuremberg which coaled here
recently, made for the same destina-
The last heard of the French cruis-
er Montcalm was that she had cleared
for Buenos Ayres July 20 for the Tou-

but she has not been spoken.

Butcher, his signal man."
Accounts of the battle say it was I
perfect in execution as well as in plan. |
Led at dawn by a fearless small de-'
tachment, the destroyers crept within
the German lines between Heliogo-
land and the German coast.
An aeroplane sighted them and
gave the news to the Germans whose
destroyers came out. The British
destroyers lured the Germans to the j
open sea, where other destroyers were
waiting spread out in fanshape. A '
small engagement followed and then I
the German cruisers came out. The j
British light cruiser Arethusa, after J
a slighting shot, got her range splen-;
didly and hit the foremost gun of one '
of the German cruisers, demolishing
It. The Arthusa then fired a few ;
broadsides at the enemy. Her aim
was excellent. She hit a German cru-
iser which at once burst into smoke
and flames but soon afterward a Ger- :
man shot did some damage to the
engine room of the Arethusa.
The destroyers Liberty and Laertes
fought a grand fight. A shell brought!
down the mast of the Liberty. The,
