the Inquiries already have been made.
They concerned the rases of ths Sussex,

from a visit to New York, lie said he
had no word of any kind from his gov

the sinking of the Eagle Toint waa con
tained in a dispstch rerelved late In the
day from Consul Frost at Queenstown
This read aa follows:
"Brltlah ateamer Eagle Point torpedoed
yeaterday without warning 100 miles from

In Government fervlee.
Consul Frost Immediately ws In
structed to gather additional Informa
tion. Press dispatches from Csnada last
night made the flat assertion thst the
Eagle Point was In government service.
The State department had no Information
en thla subject. If the ship was a gov
