Sir Edward Carson, In a speech in London to day defending the military and naval leaders from recent attacks and characterizing the agitation as a "sham crisis," attacked Lord Northcliffe. He said: "In the midst of these attacks a great man a superman, if you like comes to tell us that, in contrast with America, we are so inef ficient that America will have to take over the management of the war. I have a great admiration for this great man, but I think that it is a great calumny upon his fellow citizens, and I know it is not the view of Americans. "I have had the honor of meeting many members of the Ameri can Mission and they are lost in astonishment and amazement at the organization and the effort put forward by Great Britain. I have searched the official' reports, and this great man, so far as I can see, has never made one single suggestion since the war began from his seat in Parliament, when he can be criticised. "I attended a historic meeting in Downing street to-day. Ameri ca has shaken hands with England across the Atlantic. We are in the war together to the end and will sec it through.
