W Centre street SLAVS PROTEST AGAINST A FLAG National Slavonian Society Wins at Washington. Government Refuses Free Admission of a Valuable Banner Sent to the United States From Hungary. Local Slavonians and Hungarians are very much interested In a decision ren dered at Washington yesterday, and a decided difference of opinion on the justice of the opinion delivered by the authorities has developed. The point at. issue Is whether or not a flag now on its way to the United States should be admitted free of duty. The flag Is be ing brought to this country by a delega tion of Au9tro-Hungarian noblemen who have boon deputed to present It to the Hungarians of the United States in order to bind them more closely to their mother country. On the ground that Its acceptance would border on treason to the govern ment of this, their adopted country, the National Slavonic Society has made a successful protest to the authorities at Washington against the admission free of duty of the flag. The members say they don't want to bo bound, but want to show their loyalty to the United States, and they declare that the Inscrip tion on the flag would mako it un- American for thoui to accept it. A. S. Ambrose, of Now York, presi dent of the society, whilo in Freeland last Thursday, sent the following tele gram to Washington: "As an Ameri can citizen of Hungarian birth, I pro test against the admission free of duty of tho Hungarian flag now on the way to this country. Letter follows." Last night tho following telegram was received in reply to the message sent by Mr. Ambrose: "Free entry Hungarian flag denied. 11. A. Taylor, assistant secretary." This message came from the treasury department at Washington. The inscription on tho flag which the Slavs object to reads: "Ho dauntlossly loyal to your fatherland, oh Magyars." Mr. Ambrose has sent a letter to President Roosevelt in which ho says in "The so-called National League* of Hungary has seen lit to present to tho people of Hungarian origin In tho United States a costly banner. I object to tho acceptance of this gift for two reasons. The gift was prompted by the Hungar ian government and partly paid for by officials of that government. The dele gation on its way lias for its spokesman a person paid by that government. The object of the inscription on tho llug is to create a sort of bond between tho Hun garians in tho United States and those abroad. I base my objection to the ac ceptance of the gift on the ground that tho motives that prompted It aro un- Amorican and foreign to the intents of our institutions." Similar letters were sent to Secretar ies 11 ay and Shaw. One of tho officers of the objecting society said today: "The minister president of Hungary contributed SSOO to pay for tho flag, which Is very costly. A government official heads tho delega tion and Consul General DessewiTy, at New York, Is to receive It. This is but one of many schemes which the Hun garian government is using to instill into the minds of Hungarians in the United States feelings unfriendly to this government." Socialists Open Campaign. The campaign of tho Socialist party was opened in Freel&nd Wednesday evening with a meeting at tho corner of Centre and South streets, where several hundred people had assembled to hoar the addresses.
