Japanese Looters Shot.
"The fire of the Japanese guns was
terrible and astonishingly accurate.
i>ur officers and men expressed admira?
tion about the courage and the sol?
dierly qualities of the Japanese as a
whole. 1 here was some looting bv
them in the city of Tsing-Tau, and
v. hen their offenes were brought to

several who had been caught red

?'How different was the action of the

Indian troops. Many outrages were
committed by them, among them some
of tha graves! natuie. Yet ??.hen the
British officers were told ab?>u' the pil
l*ge and looting an?l atrocities coni

?I.rugged the,r shoulders and said:

"1 ha?c no fault to find with the

"The Japanese are first cla?s fighting

Admiralty Officers Declare Brit
ish Ship Went Down in
North Sea Battle.
Berlin, Feb. 4 ? by wireles? to Say
ville, N. Y.) German admiralty officers
astert that there is no longer any po?
sibility of doubt that a British battle
cruiser was sunk in the naval battle in
the North Sea on January ti, when the
? ierman cruiter Bluecher went down.
They ?ay that this has been established
definitely by the testimony of a large
number of officers and men who tcok
par in the fight.
The destruction of the British batfl?
cruiser, according to these statement?,
was accomplished by fh? German tor?
pedo boat destroyer V-fi, commanded
hy Lieutenant von Kirhorn. The V j. it
i* ?aid. launched torpedoes at a d*
tance of live mi lei from (he BrKish
warship, demonstrating the exceptional
range of German torpedoes.
The Admiralty officers eiprese the
belief that it wat the battle cruiser
I iger which wat sunk.
The Rntiah Admiralty, in its report i
of the North Sea battle, insisted that
no British warships were sunk. The
i Tiger was damaged, but was reported
Then Mia? Duncan circulated her
petition. She struck th" only jarring
?...'. of Ihe occasion, however, when
?he called for a woman doctor to tell
what dangers to health might result
from the nervous strain of a trial.
Dr. Ro-alie Slaughter Morton re?
sponded, hut not in the way Miss Dun?
can expected.
"1 am not in harmony with the feel?
ing of this gathering," she said. "I do
not think we should waste ?yirpathy
I upon a murderei ."
i "She isn't a murderess," objected
Mis? Pun.-an.
"Well, her children are dead."
"No. they are not dead." said the
?lancer, "they arc rieht here above
ur, looking down."
Miss Henrietta Rodman came hastily
to the re cue by reading the petition
"Shouldn't we say we demand that
Mrs. Walter! he set free?" objected
M ?ss Duncan.
"You can't demand anything when
you haver't the vote." Ibis from Mrs.
Beatrice Forbes-Robertson Hale.
"Nonsense," said Mi?s liuncan. "We
aromen can get anvthing in the world
?? e wan? without the vote. What good
would the vote he when women as yet
haven't the ?pint to keep their own
flames'' My name i a [?adora Duncan.
Suppose I married and railed myself
Mr-. Jenkins. Nobody would pay any
attention to me. It is a perfectly ri?
diculous habit women have of taking
their husbands' names."
There were other objections before
the petition was given its final ver
siqn. One woman wanted Mrs. Walters
spared until the child was horn and
then turned over to the stern hands
el the law. Miss Duncan wouldn't have
that either.

Trick Seen in Request for
U. S. Consul to Disperse
Wilhelmina Cargo.
I ondoa Foreign Office Insists
Ship Be Seired as Test of
Kaiser's Decree.
Washington, Feb 4. Much interest
-**as manifested at the State Depart?
ment in the propos?! today of Count
Re-nstorfT. the (.erman Ambassador.
that an American consular officer su?
pervise the distribution of the cargo of
foodstuffs on the American steamer
Wilhelmina, to make sure that it
reached the civilian population and not
the armed force? of (?ermany.
As the Wilhelmina is on the high
and the British government has
announeed its purpose of detaining her,
bringing her Into port and buying the
cargo, diplomatic negotiations on the
subject are not expected to develop un?
til the ship actually is tsken into Brit?
ish jurisdiction.
State Department officials declined to
say whether or not American consular
officer, would he authorized to super?
vise the distribution of rhe foodstuffs,
and in British circle* it was intimated
that (..-eat Britain probablv would not
portait the cargo of the Wilhelmina to
proceed under such an arrangement,
which, if applied to all cargoes of food
Rtuff?. might develop into a plan where
by grain and flour now in Germany
could be utilized entirely for the armed
forces, while the civilian population
?a as fed by imported product?.
London. Feb. 4.- Great Britain has
decided that if the American steamer
Wilhelmina, now on her way with a
cargo of foodstuffs for fiermany, it
'ntercepted her cargo will be submitted
to a prize court, so that the new situ?
ation arising out of the action of c'er
mnny in ordering that all grain and
Cur shall be placed under control of
the government may be regularized. In
a statement issued to-night the Brit?
ish Foreign Office ?ays;
' I ,? new ('erman decree mak?s it
evident that all grain and flour are to
pas? under control of the G erman gov?
ernment, and they must, therefore,
when imported, be regarded a? virtual?
ly consigned to the eGrman govern
iier.t or ?o the authorities under their
control. This creates a novel situation,
and it is probable that if the destina?
tion and cargo of the Wilhelmina are
a? supposed the cargo will, if the ves
bel is intercepted, be submitted to 8
prize court in order that the new situ?
ation created by the ('erman decree
may be examined and a decision
retched upon it after full considera?
"Th?re is no question of taking any
proceedings against the vessel and the
owners of the vessel will be indemni?
fied for any delay caused to it, and the
shippers of the cargo compensated for
any loss caused to them by the action
of the British authoritie?.
"There is no truth whatever in the
Maternent made in the press that it
has been decided that other such con?
signments will be seized, together
with the vessels, without compensation
to neutrals, for no decision has yet
been taken to depart from previously
existing rules or practice.
"The apparent intention, however, of
the German government to sink mer?
chant ships by submarines, without
bringing them into port or providing
accommodation for their crews and
regardless of the loss of civilian lives,
and the attempt to effect this even
nrrainst a hospital ship, has raised
very seriously the question whether
Great Britain should adopt in retalia?
tion more, stringent measures against
German trade.
"It !? recognized that when any such
decision to this effect is reached due
care must be taken not to inflict loss
upon neutral ships which sailed before
any warning has been given or de?
cision announced."
Dominion Must Present
Evidence Before State
Department Acts.
Washington, Feb. 4. State Depart?
ment officials said to-night that the
ne\t step in the case of Werner Van
Horn, who attempted to destroy a
railroad bridge at Vanceboro, Me.,
would have to be taken by Canadian
authorities Before a I nited States
lommissioner la Maine.' Until the
hearing is completed and all th? evt
.'eri.-e gathered there no action will
he taken on the formal application for
extradition made by the British Am?
bassador on behalf of the Canadian
The noints raised by Van Horn that
he was not on Canadian soil and that
his was an act of war are expected to
he fully develop?'d at the hearing be?
fore the commi-sior.er. Officials here
do not think the course of the proceed?
ings will bring the case to them for
at least a month.
Officials said the offence of destroy?
ing railroad bridges was one of those
extraditable under treaties between tie
(nited States and Canada, so if the
(anadiar, authorities prove that Van
Horn attempted to ?Jestroy the bridge
while on (anadian soll the recommen?
dation for extradition would probably
be made by the United States commis
?toner. This will have to be approved
at the State Department, where the
case will finally be decided, as the con?
nection of the criminal offences
enumerated in the treaty and acts com?
mitted during time of war is one re?
quiring definition here.
While the German Kmbassy has not
announced whether or not it will in?
tercede formally on behalf of Van Horn,
Prinz Hatdfield, of the Kmbassy staff,
inquired at the State Department to?
day for information in the case.
Vanceboro, Me , Feb i Pending a
determination at Washington of his
