London, Ens, May 1L The British official press bureau today denied the following German report of an alleged North' sea engagement: "The following statement dated Ber lin, May S, has been officially circu lated through the Cerman wireless sta tions and received by the Marconi com pany: "The main headquarters reported some weeks ago that a large number of reports were current which originated in Norway to the effect that near Ber gen, on the Norwegian coast during the night from AprM 7- to S heavy sea fighting between English and German ships had taken place.

" 'According to a letter which came in to our possession regarding the North sea fight the British battleship Superb is said to have been sunk and the cruiser Warrior is said to have been sinking without tbe German navy hav ing suffered any loss. On Friday. April 8. a number of cruisers is said to have arrived in a. bad'y damaged con dition. The Lion was very badly dam aged. Official reports say nothing ot all this.

The damaged cruiser was towed into the Tyne. A ship of the Lion class, with a starboard list and with .her aft funnel missing was towed into the Firth of Forth. "The silence of the admiralty on all this is easily to be understood as the German navy took no part in any fighting on the night in question a fight with neutral vessels is but of the question, a battle can only have taken place between ships of the Brit ish fleet which did not rer agnize eacS other in the darkness.'

There Is said to be only a slender chance that an agree hent will be reached. Military prep arations are being pushed vigor ously and political opposition to war apparently has largely died away. In Paris it is rumored that Ger many and Austria have declared war on Italy, but so far as is Known there is no basis for such reports. A Milan dispatch gives what pur ports to be an offer of territorial concessions from Austria, described as unacceptable to Italy Inasmuch as it excludes Trieste ind letria.

For Discussion Of Some Ethical above moral principle cheapens the principle and by his own self cen terednesa he destroys the effective ness of his own moral force. Lincoln did not despise physical force as a righteous weapon when moral force had failed; have we progressed so far beyond Lincoln, then, that we must proclaim the use of physical force to be always and everywhere immoral, and finally re nounce the right to apply physical force when we fall by moral force to serve mankind effectually? It used to be said that the first law of nature is self preservation. That is a lie. That is one of the last and lowest laws of nature. The nrst and highest law of nature is preser vation of the species, conservation of the race and of what good we can see in the world worth conserving. It is all right to use our moral force to the limit of effectiveness.

Meek compliance with Injustice te as immoral, as evil, as the injustice itself. It amounts to what the law yers call "compounding a felony?: it makes the weakling a party tp the crime. The precedent we have set for ourselves in Mexico will dictate our attitude toward Germany. ' Had we adopted a different for eign policy, the Lusitania would never have been sunk with the assassination of nearly ISO Ameri cans and the sacrifice of hundreds of innocent men. women, and. chil dren. It Is not a difficult art to "keep out of war" if we are content to take our inspiration from China. But is that the ideal of our "New Nationalism"; exceedingly the awful catastrophe of the Lusitania. The duty of looking itao and acting on tbe premises devolves upon the president. He has sources of information better than we can possi bly have. For one I am willing to leave It to him to do the proper thing and believe he will do It. Consequent ly it seems to me that the rest of us would for the present at least, best discharge our duty by refraining from hasty expression of opinion.
