Washington, July 26. The excited
feeling 1" shipping circles is Indicated
by applications received at the state
il, i ai tment from various mercantile
interests for information respecting
the seizures of merchant vessels and
cargoes and the sinking of other ships
in the far east.
The. attorreys for the American
Tiading company, which is concerned
in the destruction of the cargo or the
Knight Commander, have not yet sub
mitted to the state department any
formal demand for indemnity. It Is
their intention to do so soon, but so far
they have not been able to secure all
if the data essential to the formation
.f their claim.
In the absence of action by the de
partment of state In the case of any
of the United States and others who
may claim the protection of this gov
ernment, who may misconduct them
selves in the premises, will do so at
their peril and that they can in no
wise obtain any protection from the
government of the United States
against the consequences of their mis
conduct." This makes clear to mercantile and
shipping interests, the president's view
that it is not In violation of United
States law to shin contraband, but
that it must be shipped at the owners'
risk and is subject to seizure.
While there is no authority for de
claring positively in advance of an ac
tual test, t'ae policy of the state de
partment respecting recent seizures
and the Finking of vesels with Ameri
can cargoes, attention may be drawn
to the fact that In the latest edition of
'Hall's International Law," u British
work held in the highest esteem here
as an authority, the doctrine is laid
down without qualification that a neu
tral shin must not be sunk by a belli
gerent, and that if the detained vessel
cannot be sent to port she must be re
released and not sunk. This doctrine
bears precisely upon the case of the
Knight Commander, as far as the facts

different from the ordinary neutrality

Demand to be Made Upon Russia
London, July 26. The British govern
ment is taking an active interest In tii-i
sinking of the Knight Commander by
the Vladivostok squadron. All infor
mation received by the government
tends to establish -in the official mind
the belief that an outrage has been
committed for which no excuse exists
in iniCrnatifHial law. Those aware f
the feelings of the ministry said that
all the members of the cabinet are in
accord regarding the principle of Invio
lability of innocent neutral shipping,
as well as the principle that a neutral
ship cannot be destroyed even if carry
ing munitions of war.
The demands which will be made on
the Russian government will Indud

Before issuing his order withdraw

Peabody received assurances from

military rule was proclaimed in Teller

gan their conferences early. Thomas
F. Ryan, who was delegate tc the St.

who is a New York business man. was
j one of the first to call upon Senatof
Gorman, but several others followed
him. Soon afterward the senator left
the hotel and. it la understood, met
some men of this city who desired t
lay before him reasons why he should
become the head of the committee. In
addition, Delancey Nicoll of this city,
was in conference with several mem
bers of the committee with a view M
bringing about Mr. Gorman's' accept
ance. It was said that a number. of
New York business men were willing
to guarantee the raising of a good siz

be prevailed upon to act as chairman.
Friends of Thomas Taggart Mid they
were not In the least disturbed by th

assurances that Judge Farker wanted
some other man than Taggart for
chairman would go with them, as tbey
had verbal assurance that Parker

There were busy scenes today around
the rooms occupied by Connor Senator
