President Yuang Shl-Kni, of China, to

but tuibulent Government, started a pa
rade this morning between tho hours of
.1 and fi o'clock, Chinese time, to the
Confucian Temple. He asked all China
men to honor Confucius at approximately
tlio same time.
The locnl Chinatown received tlio Presi
dent's edict, but since tho right timo for
tho tiihuto Is dllllcult to translate Into

paying honor to Confucius or to tlio
Last week Yuang Shl-Kni hinted to his
chief minister that he thought it would

COURT ASKED TO
STAY ALLIES FROM
Owners of Fram and Som-
mcrstad, Through Counsel,
Move to Save Boats From
Hands of Warring Powers.
A demand to order the unloading of
Hie Norwegian trump steamboats I-'rnm
nhd Somtncrstad, now lying In the Dela
ware Itlver, has been Med with the
United Stales District court today by
Hiilph M. Hullowa, a New Vorlc attorney,
representing tho owners of the vcsolB,
Who do not propose to have thrm selrcd
by warring powtta by carrying supplies
to German men of war off tho Ainctlciii
coast. The court lias lescrved an opinion.
The dictagraph -xposuto of the desti
nations of tho Norwegian Htoamsiilpf,
b'uttn anil Somm!r3t.id, now at an
chor In the linlawnio Itlver, lias
disclosed the system which mado
the Violation of neutrality possi
ble. Owners, agents and others inn
now rushing to cover. The expose wa
duo to tho effotts ot Christian Moo,
Norwegian Consul at this port, nnd
Itnlph M. Httllowa, a New York attorney.
It was In Mr. Ittillowa's olllco the dic
tograph was Installed, prior to a eon
fetence botwoon tho masters of the ves
sels, representatives of. tho Hamburg
American Line and officials of the Inter
Amerlcati Company. Mr. Dullowa de
clares that tho lntcr-Amcrican Com
pnnv had chartered the vessels and then
rechatteied them to the Ilatnlmrg
Amerlcan Company. This Is denied by
Julius P. .Meyer, director of the latter
company, who assorts that his company
hns chartered vessels at various times
to supply ships of tlio line, but never
Upon tlio advice of Mr. Moe, Captain
Axclson, of tho Sommerstad, and Cap
tain Grlnhelm, ot tho Fram, consulted
Mr. Hullowa, after notifying their own
ers, the A. P. Klavernoss .fe Co., of
Hnugesend, Norway, and II. M. Wrangell
& Co., of Chrlstlanla, Norway.
Consul Moe's suspicion was first aroused
by Captain Axelsen and C.'iptnln Grlnhelm.
They told him they were to salt under
scaled orders and "things didn't look Just
right." They said that they wero In duty
bound to tho steamship owners to curry
tho cargoes to their destinations, but they
did not believe the owners know anything
about the "hlpment of supplies to Ger
A few days later the captains told Mr.
Moe that agents of the Hamburg-American
Line hnd sent them ofTcrs of big
bonuses tor immediate sailings. This wns
during the time the masters ot the steam
ships weio awaiting ndvice from home.
Tho advice came and told them to con
sult an attorney. Then the conference
with tho dictograph as a witness was ar
ranged. Nothing could bo learned of the trans
action at tho olllco of William J. Grand
field and Company, 303 Walnut stret, to
day. They are the local agents fqr the
steamships. They declined to give the
name or names of tho poisons for whom
they were acting and furthor refti'ed to
atnim or deny that they knew the car-
nn ...Am ntnnnf fnr ftormnn cruisers.
"Wo will not discuss the tmnsactlon In
anyway," was all that was said.
The Sommerstad and Pram are two ot
six vessels with similar cargoes on bonrd
clared from this port by Grandtleld
& Co. Tho fiist ono was tho Ileina,
which left on August G ostensibly for La
Gunyra It was reported that ho had
been captured In the act of delivering
hei cargo to a German warship. Tho
Nepos sailed on August 22. tlio John Lud
wig Nowinckel on September 2 and the
Unltu on September S. On their clearance
papers their destinations weio given as
Spanish or Brazilian ports.
Like "carrying coats to Newcastle" was
tho carrying of coffee to Pra7.il by these
steamships. Another suspicious incident
was the largo supply of fresh water
taken on board. Those nroused the Nor

care to risk Imprisonment In English or
French prisons, but both emphatically
declared they feared most for tho prop
erty of their employers. Difficulty was
experienced In getting crews for these
vessels, despite tho fnct that hundreds
of sailors aro out of employment.
Arrangements are now being made for
the discharge of the cargoes of the Fram
and Sommerstad, and in a few days
$.i),u00 worth of coal and ship supplies
which were scheduled for Gorman war
ships will bo dumped back on ono of the
pu-rs and later delivered to the consignors.
