" 'In the house of commons yes

passed a telegram which appeared in
the New York American from the
London correspondent of the Inter
national News Service, stating that
the admiralty had admitted an over
whelming defeat by a portion of the
German high seas fleet
" 'Mr. Samuel replied that the mes
sage in question was not included in
any telegram sent from this coun
try, but was composed in the New
York office of the International News
Service, with the exception of the
word 'overwhelming,' which was in
serted in the office of the New York
American.
"K'There were several similar cases
at the time of the disturbances in Ire
land at the end of April, but the Lon
don representative of the agency has.
now given assurance that no such
manipulation of his messages should
occur again.

publishes the text of Mr. Samuel's
written answer to Mr. Ainsworth. Re

the time of the disturbances in Ire
land at the end of April in which mes
sages, appearing in the New York
American and the New York Journal,
which purported to be from the Lon
don correspondent of the Interna
tional News Service, bore no likeness
to the cablegrams actually dis- A
patched, and in some instances gave
information which was the opposite
of that which had been sent to 'the
press." ' "
