More or Less Spiritedly and
Moderation of Movements
Is Feature.
XJ2W YORK, May 15.?Stocks ral
lied more or lese spiritedly today
from their weakness of the preceding
session -when quoted values crumpled
mainly from apprehension engen
dered by increasing tension in inter
national affairs-. Improvement was
manifest at the outset and further
progress was made during the first
hour, the range of gains extending
from two to four points.
War specialties were most variable
recovering a material part of yester
day's losses but yielding to pressure
again toward the end of today's short
session. The most reassuring feature
of today's movements was its mod
eration. Total sales of stocks
amounted to 240,000 shares.
Except for decision of the Inter
state Commerce Commission order
ing some of the important trunk
line carriers to serve all ownership
of -water lines between Buffalo anc
Chicago, mtsi of the day's general
news was of a hopeful character.
Conditions in the steel industry have
thus far been unaffected by the in- j

Railroads ~Must Give

After December 1 Ts[e?.t
Declares the Interstate Com
merce Commission in a
Sweeping Decision.
Of Railroad Control is Thus Es
tablished from New York
to Duituth.
csv asiociotco
WASHINGTON, May 15.?In one
of the most far reaching: decisions
in recent years the Interstate Com- j
merce Commission today decided that
the railroads owning and operating: I
steamships on the Great Lakes must
give them up after December 1.
The principal eastern trunk lines
which carry the great volume of
freight traffic between the Atlantic
seaboard and the "West are affected
and the decision may possibly alter
the trade routes over which are moved
millions of tons to the West, rich
stores of raw materials, principally
grain and ores to the East and mil
lions of tons of manufactured prod
ucts to the West and Northwest.
Independent Water Route.
In effect the decision establishes a
water route independent of railway
control from New York to Duulth and
other westernmost points on Lake
Superior and to Chicago and other
points on Lake Michigan through a
chain of waterways. The Hudson
river. Erie canal, the Great Lakes and
connecting rivers.
The commission -points out that the
Great Lakes for many years dominat
ed by the railroad fleets, will again be
opened to independent shipping and
that the Erie canal again has the-op
portunity of becoming a main artery
of traffic.
Under the Panama canal law rail
road ownership of competing water
lines is forbidden unless the Inter
state Commerce Commission holds
that public convenience and necessity
are served thereby. The commission
finds to the contrary that: "the inter
ests of the shipping public will be
conserved, and those'of the boat lines
will be bettered by the divorcement."*

And All Anxiety at Washington
Over Delay of Transmission
is Removed.
All is Conjecture as to the Next
Developments in Connection
With Tragedy.
WASHINGTON, I>. C. .May lo-?
Word tonight ? that Ambassador
Gerrard had read and presented to
Herr von Jagovr. minister lor for
eign affairs of the imperial German
government, the American note sent
Thursday as a consequence ot the
Lusitania tragedy and other occur
rences in the war zone, removed an
anxiety here over the delay in trans
mission and awakened intense inter
est in the nature of Germany's repiy.
In view of telegraphic and cable
' delays and the probable necessity
for conferences between the foreign
minister with the imperial chancellor,
von Bethmann Hollweg, and douot
less Emperor William himself. It
would not be surprising if the re
sponse did not arrive for another
eight days. It was believed possible,
however, that Ambassador Gerard
might report earlier on the manner
in which the American note was re
ceived by the government and the
semi-official press
Submarine Attacks May Stop.
In the interim confidence prevails
among high officials and is shared in
German official quarters that there
will be no submarine attacks on pas
senger vessels while the question at
issue was being resolved.
The intimation which came in press
dispatches today indirectly from Ber
lin to the effect that Germany would
willingly submit the question raised
by the American note to arbitration
was received* with much interest and
it was indicated that if there was a
suspension, of submarine warfare on
merchant -ships- while th& discussion
was in progress the plan might be
given serious consideration, by - tne
American government.
Arbitration is Talked.
Arbitration also had been talked
of here before today's press dis
patches arrived. Some German of
ficials had intimated that al
though without advices from Ber
lin they were confident from previous
knowledge of the desire of the Ger
man government to remain frlendly
with the United that arbitration
would be welcomed. The difficulty
of constituting a court of arbitration
at this time when most of the great
powers whose participation might bo
desired are at war was pointed out
by some diplomats however as mak
ing the plan impracticable
That some way would be found to
reach an amicable settlement be
tween the United States and Ger
man-i- was the growing conviction of
manv officials and diplomats today.
A variety of suggestions were heard
May Refuse Clearance.
One which was given serious
thought, was a proposal to refuse
clearance to belligerent ships carrj
in?* munitions of war or absolute con
fidence if they also carried passen
gers. This would involve no embar?
go but a separation of passenger and
contraband traffic
The United States stands firmly on
the legal rights of its citizens.
Traveling on the seas and
believes its position is indisputable.
Germanv. however, holds that this
bas become a debatable question on
account of changed conditions and If
the two classes of ocean going traffic
were separated, submarines would
direct their attention to contraband
ships alone.
May Not Arm Morcliantmen.
Another sugestion which was wide
ly discussed by officials was the pos
sible announcement by the allies that
none of their merchant ships would
be armed hereafter. Merchant ships
of any nationality according to a
' ruling from the state department
! early in the war have a right to
'carry guns not larger than six inch
caliber "for defensive purposes only. '
But. bv an informal arrangement
with the British government- clear
ance has been refused British ships
iat American ports unless they dis
posed of their guns.
Out or the phases of the question
there was believed in diplomatic
quarters, howevetr. tuSi- some solu
tion of the question involved eventu
ally would be reached without any
re petition in the "meantime of sucb a
disaster as befell the Lusitania.
