He made thlB declaration to Dr. Guy

Dr. Cleghorn said, however, thai
Holt ls so weak, unless he showed de
cided improvement by Wednesday he
might report its inadvisable to remove
him from the Mine?la Jail to court
here. Ills condition is so grave that
all but his counsel, and physician

Glen Cove. Nr. Y., July 5.-Frank
Holt. J. P. Morgan's assailant, was
BO weak today he could not sit up in
the Jail cell. The jail physician said
Holt's Injuries arc graver than at first
thought. The weakness Is due to loss
of blood from wounds over the eye.
His shoulder was badly wrenched and
he bad a powerful blow in the stom
ach. The physician said Holt is very
Bick, mentally and physically."
Tho authorities are trying to clear
up whether Holt was involved In the

tempted to assassinate J. P. Morgan
at Glencove.
Federal detectives throughout the
country are following clues which are

cation of Holt as Brich Muenter, a

the United States and Germ.ny re
gard lng th o nature of the forthcoming
German reply to Ute United States
Koto on submarine warfare. It is
learned. This itt responsible for tho I
delay ia the dollv^yry of tho German I
note.
this last American note on
larine warfare probably won't be
received for a week. Ambassador
Gerard's reports set no specific date.
He predicted, though a Week will be
required, (?ersd has been unable to
learn definitelly just what the Ger
man reply will outline. He knows,
however, t hut Germany will make a
counter proposal, the nature of which
ls now being discussed.

will bo given to Ambassador Gerard
at Berlin, a asy or two earlier and is
now practically completed.

Ambassador Gerard it is under

state department and the president
complete and frequent reports of the
progress of Germany's noto.
WJiile thc president maintained his
attitude of refusing to make any
comment, it is known that Ambassador
Gerard's reports have given the presi
dent ground for confident belief that
Germany will make material conces
sions and possibly propose a solution
which can bc accepted by this gov
ernment.
The con f iden tal reports reaching
thc president, including that regard
ing the date the German note would
be received, are all to the effect that
the German reply will be conciliatory,
if not actually orbring a final basis
for satisfactory settlement.
No Trouble Over Armenian.

authority that officials in Washington
believe the sinking of the Armenian
