U. S. LINER SEIZED
BY BRITISH; HELD
Cargo of Copper, Carried by
Kroonland, Alleged to Be
Consigned to Krupp Factories.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 38. Detention ot
the fled1 s'ar ,lnor Kroonland at Gibral
tar was reported to tho Stato Department
hy the American Consul at Gibraltar to
The Kroonland, an American-built and
American-owned vessel, was carrying a
cargo ot 1M0 tons of copper from New
Turk tp Naples. No reason was given
for her detention by a British warship.
Upon receipt of tho Information that
the Kroonland had been detained, Acting
Secretary of Stato Lansing notified tho
Consul at Gibraltar that additional de
tails were desired. Following tho re
ceipt ot these details a protest probably
will Ji? made to Great Britain by Am
bassador Tago at London.
State Department officials today pointed
cut tjiat. while copper has been placed
on the conditional contraband list, Great
Britain has no right to detain an Amor
lean vessel headed for a neutral port, no
matter what her cargo Is.
Som weeks ago Great Britain seized
the copper cargoes of ships bound from
the t'nlted StatcB to Holland, on tho
contention that they were rcconslgncrt
through Holland porta to Germany,
where the copper was used In the manu
facture of cannon In tho Krupp factory.
It Is. believed that tho British Govern
ment lias reason to believe that tho
Kroonland copper cargo was ultimately
destined to Austria or Germany.

session of a fashionable housemaids' sew

been saying harsh things about tho Ger

When sho subsided another housemaid
ventured to say that she wanted the hos
pital supplies she was sewing to bo for

the little French maid exploded again.
"Humanity knows no nationality," sho
said In a flash. "These things shall go
to all nations."
This anecdote was related today by
Miss Mabel Boardman, active head of
the American Red Cross, to Illustrate the
part women are playing In the war.
"Tho Idea that humanity knows no
nationality," she said, "Is tho thing that
Is making -women strong ln this war.
Woman's ministration on tho battlefield
and woman's nld at home mean that after
this great war Is over there Is going to
bo a better International spirit. Wounded
soldiers aro going back home to toll that
women on the battlefields ot a foreign
land were kind to them.
"Then, too, women are spreading the
spirit of charity. They nre taking the
human element to the battlefields, and
they are preventing many soldiers from
feeling that they must rotallatc for actual
or fancied atrocities of tho enemy. That
Is what I call tho woman's Influence on
the moral questions Involved In war."
But woman Is paying a terrible price.
Miss Boardman declared. She must stay
at homo while loved ones nre fighting In
the trenches. She must suffer tho torture
of silence or worse, the torture of know
ing that her loved ones havo been killed
But woman's part In tho world, after the
war Is over, can be more Influential than
ever, Miss Boardman held. She favored
js formation of a non-polrtlcnl woman s

Involving business or politics.
"Such a party," she said, 'could lond Its

NEW YORK, Oct. 28.-The mutiny of
General Do Wet and General Beyers In
the Union of South Africa Is a more
serious affair than tho Initial revolt led
by Lieutenant Colonel Marltz.
De Wet and Meyers have far higher
qualities of leadership than Marltz pos
sesses and their prestige Is capable of
exerting more pressure on the Boers to
Join the uprising. Nevertheless, the
chances are very'much against serious
consequences following the attempted
At most the British troops In South
Africa may have to be kept within their
own boundaries during the war, this pos
sibly saving the German colonies from
capture. This would bo In Itself a de
cided victory for Germany, but such an
outcomo Is by no means certain.
The attitude of Portugal will play an
Important part In the development of
the situation. Eleven thousand Portu
guese troops are believed to have been
takon to South Africa on British trans
ports since the war began. Germany's
Invasion of Angola Indicates Berlin's be
lief that the troops are destined for use
against the German colonies, to forestall
which Germany ha begun an offensive
campaign against Portuguese possessions.
The Portuguese probably wilt not be
used to suppress the South African up
rising, untess the situation becomes very
serious. They will doubtless be sent Into
German East and West Africa to prevent
German assistanoe being sent to the
Boers and to prepare the way for British
operations If tho Boer revolt can be
Tlircn considerations work against the
success of tho Marltz-De Wet-Beyers mu
tiny. The time that has elapsed since
the Boer War haa given an opportunity
for thn Boers to compare their greater
prosperity under present conditions than
under the Kruger regime. Secondly, the
Boer are not hero worshipers. They are
Individualists, which fact made them such
remarkable guerrilla fighters during their
war against England It years ago.
That same trait will now work to cause
each Boer, very largely, to make up his
own mind for himself In the present
crisis. Despite the prestige of De Wet
and Beyers, the Boers probably will not
be stampeded Into mutiny en masse.
The final, and without doubt the most
Important, fact that will operate against
a serious revolt Is the full self-government
Great Britain has granted to the
Boera. The British possessions In South
Africa where Britons predominate among
the white population have been united
with the Transvaal and the Orange River
Colony, where the Boers so far outnum
ber the Britons as to give Uiem a racial
majority in the South African Govern
ment. In actual fact, therefore, despite
the British victory In the South African
war, the Boers now rfle the Britons there
"under a Parliamentary regime.
The Boers possess as much freedom. In
Tact, as If they were wholly Independent,
and they enjoy greater prosperity and
have their freedom guaranteed without
charge by the British Imperial forces.
These circumstances seem to lead to the
conclusion that the present revolt will
be largoly confined to those Boers who
have personal, and not national, grudges
and spite to repay.

"Philadelphia has always been given

other shipper said. "The boats are slow
