It was explained . unofficially that - the gov ernment's position in the -matter of preserving neutrality would be made more secure in the eyes of foreign na tions by eBtablishing a policy of pros ecuting attempts at such violations, since such, prosecution wouldV in effect it is pointed out, serve to place guar antees upon, American cargoes that thev were not contraband. : ' The documents in possession ; of the Jury contain charges that the Ham: burg-American Steamship Line had attempted to use Norwegiatt merchant ships as auxiliaries to - German , war vessels on the Atlantic ' : ..C Y. - Misstatements, in clearance " papers, as to ports of call or destination! and false statements in. manifests as to the contents of cargoes are alleged and the investigation, of the charges being conducted is on the theory of that such false statements constitute a conspiracy against the United States government.
