The leading edltorluls In this uttornoon's nensparers are mainly de voted to commonts on the speech of Cant. Coghlan at tho Union League Club dinner. The GIoIip says: "Capt. Coghlan displayed that appalling Indiscretion and want of self control which forms so dlsaereeable a feature ot tho national oharacter. The Americans must not only regulate their diplomacy to the standard observed In Europe, but must place their urmod forces on a different footing, nnd the splrltot discipline must be made universal, of wlik h at present there ure very few traces, and which seems alien to the national charac ter. The state of affairs which passes for dis cipline on board of an American man-of-war Is enough to send a cold shudder down the backof aulF.ngllsh naval man at the loose, hall fellow well-met system. America must be prepared to take un the bteru yoke of disci pline which Is found Indispensable by tho n tlons of the Old World.

Coghlan of tho American cruiser Italelgh, ut the dlnnor of the Union Tongue Club In Now York, has created less stir here than In tho United States nnd Great Britain, though it undoubtedly created n bad Impression In ilerlln. Secretary Hay's prompt repudiation of the speech, how ever, has done much to mitigate thu ef fect hero ot Cupt. Coghian'a remarks It Is unofficially doclarod that the Govern ment does not think that tho making of such speeches should bo the subject ot dlplomntlo negotiations.

The ..Yafioiial 7?itung calls the speech ex travagant nnd alcohol tinctured, and declares that the only ground for noticing tho Incident Is that the correct attitude of the Amorlcnn Government and press shows that the rela tions between tho United States and Germany havorccontlr changed for the hotter.
