lien's Text or Nut
Tlie tt-xt of tlie note follows:
"In leply t your excellency's note
of the lifth instant, which tho govern
ment of the I'nited states understand
admits the liability of tho imperial
Germ. in sorcrntm nt for the damage
resulting from the sinking of tho
American sailing vessel William 1'.
!r e. by the German auxiliary cruiser.
I'ruu Kit'd Friederieh on Jan. 'js last
I have the honor to sav by declaration j
of my government. that while tho
promptness with whieh the imperial
lerman government has admitted its
liability is highly appreciated, my gov
ernment feels that it would be inap
propriate in the circumstances of this
misc. and would Involve unnecessary
delay, to adopt the suggestion in your J
note that the legality of the capture j
and destruction, the standing of the
elaimants and the amount of indem
nity should be submitted to a prize
court.
TnquesUonahly tin- destruction of
this vessel was a violation of the ob
ligations impose.! upon tho imperial
German government under existing
Ireatv stipulations between the Tnited
Mates and Prussia and the I rated
States government, by virtue of its
treaty rights, has presented to the im
perial (icrm.ui government a claim
lor indemnity on account of the re
Milting damages suffered by American
i itizens. Th" liability of tho imperial
German govt rnment. and the standing
of the claimants as American citizens,
;.nd the amount of indemnity are all
questions which lend themselves to
diplomatic negotiations between the
two governments. and happily the
question of liability has already been
settled in that way. The status of the
claimants and the amount of the in
demnity are the only questions re
anainimr to be settled, and it is ap
propriate that they should be dealt
with in the same way.
Cargo Value Not at liu
"The government of the I'nited
States fully understands that as
stated in your excellency's note, the
German pocrnment is liable under
the treaty provisions above mention
ed for the damages arising from the
destruction of the earuo as well as
from the destruction the vessel. Hut
it will be observed that tlie claim un
der discussion does not include dam
iiges for the destruction of th eari;o.
.m. th. oiiestnm or lie aiue oi in
the!
a argo therefore is not included in
present discussion.
"The government of the Fnited
States recognizes that the German
government will wish to be satisiied
sis to the American ownership of the
vessel and the amount of damages
Mistained in consequence of her dc-
f-truction.
"These matters ale readily ascer
tainable and if the government de
uros any further evidence in sub
Mantiation ol the claim on these
points
in addition to that furnished i
I'V tlie shins papers w nun are
which are already,
in the p
ession of the German gov
ernment any additional evidence
fo :nd necessary will be produced.
"In this c;i;o, however, inasmuch as
any evidence which the German gov
ernment may wish to have produced
i mote accessible and can more con
veniently bo examined in the United
Stales than elsewhere, on account of
tlie presence there of the owners and
captain of the William 1. I"rye. ami
their documentary records and other
papers. yo'ir evidence therefore
shows much worthiness."

and another car to make a coupling.
In some manner he was caught be
tween the two when the coupling was
made. It was necessary to uncouple
the cars before he could be dislodged
from his position. Arthur Manning
ly, the motorman in charge of the
train, declared to the police and to
Dr. IMgar .Myers, who attended tho
injured man. that lie had been given
the signal to back into the car, ami
that he 1 i I not know that he had
caught Donahue.
Donahue's worst injuries, accord
ing to authorities at th" hospital,

and lungs. He was said to he in a se
rious condition with a fair chance of

ffly HEAT CONTRACT
ONLY FAVORS COMPANY
Board of Works and City At
torney Raise Objections to
Proposed Agreement.
Hi'forts arc )cinp made both by tho
board of public works and a Mibsidiary
corporation of the Indiana and Michi
gan Kleetrie Co., known ai ti St.
Joseph Heating Co., to arce uju n tile
terms of a contract presented by the
latter to the hoard for furnishing heat
by steam to the Oliver hotel from sur
plus steam in the boilers of the In
diana and Michigan Electric Co. 'a
plant. According to Pres't K. M. Mor
ris of the board and to City Atty.
Seebirt, the c ontract as it stands will
probably not be accepted by the city.
According to tlie board and to Mr.
Seebirt the newest contract is alto
gether too favorable to the steam com
pany. It was filed in the works board
oflico Tuesday evening and was up for
consideration at Tuesday night's and
Wednesday morning's meetings of the
board. Tlie mem iters failed to reach
any definite plan or agreement in the
matter ami it wax turned over to City
Atty. Seebirt for suggested altera
tions. Among other things objected to in
tho contract by tlie board is the fact
that it fails to state that he ciy's
approval must be gained before any
extension of the line is 'made after it
is laid. Another portion which, if the
suggestions of Mr. Seebirt are follow-
ed, will hi
agreement,
that notice
before tjie
left entirely out of the
is that whieh sets forth
must be .yiven six month
contract's termination of
any proposed sale of rights, property
anil other detail connected with th
construction of the lines.
The contract is similar in contents
to a tormer proposed agreement made
by the steam supplying company.
However, the board failed to reach
any agreement on that contract, and
the one at present under eorit-idera-tion
seems also to fail to meet the re
quirements set by th beard. City
Atty. Seebirt has suggested several
chances in the instrument and has also
declared' to the board that it would
l.'f inadvisable to enter into the agree
ment until several portions were left
entirely out of consideration

Another marked success has been

Dispatches from eastern heaebjuar-'

forces in western Calicia are rapclly
pressing eastward and southward to
ward Dukla pass, shattering every
effort to oppose their progress.
Tlie correspondent of the Tageblatt
telegraphs that the Kussians' southern
wing has been crushed on a front of
-2 miles.
"Our advance is everywhere vic
torious," he adds. "We have captured
Corliee and are still preitv; on."
Corliee is ' 1 miles cast ot the Dun

They had crossed tho iiiala and reach

"The attack of our forces was so
determined," continues the corre
spondent, "that the Kussians were
compelled to abandon their first lines
as well ns the village back of the
front which they had used as quar
ters. "They were rapidly driven back to
Corliee, which was tho only point
where the Kussians made a deter
mined stand. This wju in vain. An
artillery bombardment destroyed the
town and it was captured by the Ger
mans after a violent tight in the ruins.
"At Corliee one entire Russian di
vision was practically annihilated. All
the staff otticers, including several
generals, were killed or wounded.
"The Russian soldiers are very
poorlv equipped arid complained when

for food. Most of the prisoners wore
military caps, but civilian clothing.
