PRIZE COURT
DECISION MAY MEAN HEAVY
LOSS BY AMERICAN
PACKERS
FAVORED ONLY
EIGHT CLAIMS
U. S. Contemplate? No Action
Until Packers Have Exhaust
ed Legal Rights.
London, Sept. 16.-The British
prize court today condemned the
greater part ot the American pro
ducts forming tho cargoes of the Nor
wegian steamship Kim. Alfred Noble,
Bjorastjerne BJornaoo, aud Fried
land. A email proportion was releas
ed to the claimants. It consisted.
principally of American meat pro
ducts.
The case has been pending several
montUs. The steamships were seized
last November. The American own*
ern tried to obtain an early trial, but
the British authorities set the hear
ing for June. The hearing closed
last month, with judgment reserved.
In a lengthy judgment. Sir Samuel
T. Evans, president of the court, said
it was plain that these ships were
carrying toward Copenhagen. when
captured, over thirteen times the
amount of goods which under nor
mal circumstances would have been
taken to that port. That fact gave
practical and overwhelming assur
ances, that Ute goods were intended
for Germany, although it did not
prove conclusively <Jhat they were
destined to the enemy of Great
Britain.
Ono circumstance throwing light
on the real destination waa that the
exportation of lard, by one American
company alono, to Copenhagen in
three weeks after the outbreak of tho
war was. twenty times more than
during peace. He said it had not been
shown that thins of canned meat were
sent to Denmark in large quantities!
before the war yet thousands were
on the way steen the vessels were
captured; These tins, it seemed,
could uot have been meant for ' any
other than the German soldiers.
The meat cargoes were valued at
fifteen million dollars. Sixteen
claims were disallowed, including
those of the Morris, Armour, Ham
mond, Swift, and Sulzberger com
panies. Eight claims were allowed
seven bein,*. Danish, and one Ameri
can.
Wallington. 8ept. 16.-The United
States contemplates no action now in
connection with the condemnation ot
American meat cargoes by the British
prize court. The state department
explained that alblle preliminary dip
lomatic steps were taken c er the
seizure, action was withheld because
the American packers preferrd to ex
haust legal remedies in England.
1 The prize court condemned the
' greater part of the American products
forming Che cargoes of four Norwe
gian ships, valued at several mil
lions.

London, Sept. 16.-The Russian
armies are showing an. increasing
disposition to r?assume the offensive
at many points on the eastern front.
They are not only pressing attacks
against the Austrians lb Galicia, but
for the most. part are holding up
the German rush in mid-Poland .They
also assert they hare thrown back the

The German battering of the bridge

Russians lately have been taking

bi England hopes are rising that
Earl Kitchener did not make an in- .
cautious prediction when he declared
that Germany had "shot her belt."
But that the statement was based on
facts. It is said here that von Hin
denburg's drive is losing Its vigor
while von Mackensen'a is striving to
overcome and the Austrians appear
unable to regain the upper hand in
Galicia.
The Balkan situation has not
