LONDON, May 10.—The Board of Trade inquiry into the loss of the Cunard liner Lusitania will begin at once. After a conference with the officers of the Board of Trade, and Lord Mersey, who presided over the Titanic and Empress of Ireland inqui ries, the admiralty decided to call the investigation as soon as possible. That the government is being seri ously criticised for its failure to send destroyers to safeguard the Lusitania into port, and the Cunard line for maintaining the regular course at slow speed is Just being appreciated by the cabinet. The officials at the admiralty say there was good reason for acting as they did, but make no explanation. The criticism is not by Americans alone. A leader is D. A. Thomas, tho Welsh coal millionaire, who was res cued. "It is puzzling at a time like this,” he said, "when speed means every thing to safety to understand why the Lusitania went so slow. She was running at least 20 per cent, below her regular speed. The price of Amer ican coal is no more than it was a year ago, but even though it was, un der any consideration, prices ought not to carry the slightest weight. “Rumor that the Lusitania was slowed down so tjjp,t she would not reach Liverpool too soon are being circulated, but if that is so, why did not a couple of destroyers convoy the steamer, as was the case when the Transylvania went in?" Many passengers openly assert that tho officers of the Lusitania were too certain that the liner woilld float. Although she listed greatly with tho first torpedo, they took the position that she would right herself, and there was no system in the hurried attempts either to have the passen gers put on their life belts or to get the boats and rafts overside. Many of the boats and rafts, it is now known, went down with the steamer. Would Beat Devi! Out of His Flock Negro Pastor, Barred from Church, Makes Some Dark Hints About the Janitor.

Jackson, pastor of the Fountain Baptist Churhh (col ored) declared today that If he were big enough he would resort to physi cal force as a means of bringing some of his flock Into the straight and nar row path. "I have found that I can't preach the devil out of some of these negroes, nor can I pray It out of them. What they really need Is to have someone beat the devil out of them, and if I were big enough I’d do it,” he declared. The remarks of the pastor were In duced when he consulted a local lawyer this morning relative to in stituting legal action to recover from Joseph Green, acting sexton of the church, the keys to the edifice. While the colored pastor was addressing the congregation of the Central Presby terian Church yesterday morning Green, the Janitor, barred the Foun tain Baptist Church against him and the congregation. Green claims the church owes him money for services as Janitor. When Rev. Mr. Jackson was told of the situation yesterday he promptly broke the lock and held Bervices inside.

Frank today was resentenced to be hanged on Tuesday, June 'll, for the murder of Mary Phagan. Frank, when brought before the bar, made this statement: “Again I stand before you. Again I can but reiterate that I am Inno cent of the murder of Mary Phagan. I have absolutely no guilty knowl edge of that tragic occurence. "I am innoncent of this charge and I assert that the record of the evi dence conclusively proves this. No appellate tribunal has ever passed upon this evidence. The only Judge who has ever heard It, stated that he had the most serious doubts as to my guilt. “My execution will not avenge Mary Phagan's death, A life will have been taken for a life, but the real culprit will not have paid the penalty. I will suffer for another's crime. Trusts In God and Future. “My trust Is In God, who knows that my protestations of Innocence are the truth. At some future date the whole mortal world will realize. It Is tho knowledge that God knows it now, and that the world will know it some day that Inspires me as I stand before your honor and as I face the future. "Anything elso I might say at this time would be but an elaboration of my words to the court. Yet I am fully alive to the fact that my po sition is most precarious. It is a situation which is so far removed from anything that my life and mental attitude could have bespoken. It is hideous, but at the same time so unreal, so Incongruous. "It is fundamental in human life to want to live. This desire to exist is ingrained in all of us—it is the basic morality of all who live. To those who have the proper ideals of living, life without honor is insufferable. This is tho message of theology and ethics. "In tho light of the whole truth I know—-and the Almighty knows—that the morality of my position in this case is unassailable. This being so, my complete exoneration of this ter rible charge lies in the future. When that day arrives I shall be vindicated —and if I am alive I will be enabled to enjoy freedom and honor. "Therefore I Want to Live." “Therefore I want to live. “The full truth and all of the facts in the case, when they come to light, as some day they will, will prove to the world that my assertion of inno cence is the truth. “The legal arena is closed to me. The bar is placed forever against further legal process. Yet the issue of guilt or innocence has been before one court, that in which the jury sat. All subsequent appeals were made upon alleged legal and Jurldicial er rors, not upon the facts or the evi dence. Since the Jury heard the case no court of inquiry or review has sifted the evidence. No decisions of any appeals court undertook to pred icate an opinion on the record of the testimony and evidence. The doubt of the trial Judge as to my guilt still remains.” cm NEWS BRIEFS The final spring meeting of the Men’s Club of the Second Presby terian Church will be held next Fri day night in the church parlors.

Men Will Return and Work With Non-Union Strikebreakers. Spwlai to tho Evonlnr Star. SUMMIT, May lO.-^The strike of the three hundred Bilk workers who had been employed In the mills of the Summit Silk Company, which began March 17, was ended Saturday night and the mills will reopen tomorrow morning. The adjustment of tho differences between the strikers and the mill owners was brought about through the efforts of Mayor Francis H. Ber gen’s committee, composed of for mer Councilman Thomas M. DeBe volse, former Councilman Oliver B. Merrill and Francis S. Phraner. This committee was appointed by Mayor Bergen three weeks ago. Now that the strike has been settled much praise is given the committee by citi zens generally. The strikers, too, are apparently happy that they are to return to work. Not only did the citizen's committee succeed in set tling the strike, but by the terms of the agreement made by the strikers' representatives and President Gerll at the conference Saturday the com mittee is to continue as a permanent arbitration body with power to ad just any future differences between the mill owners and their employes. On the basis on which the settle ment of the strike was effected It would appear as If Paul Gerll, presi dent of the company which operates the mills, has won a complete victory. The strikers have been idle seven weeks and are now to return to work with forty-five silk weavers with whom they refused to work and be cause of whom the strike really re sulted. To Have "Open" Shop. Despite the fact that the striking weavers, numbering about one hun dred and seventy-five, since the strike was declared have become affiliated with the American Federation of Labor, they are now to return to work with the forty-five non-union weavers. Ten of these non-union men, after they had been discharged from the mills on the demand of one hundred and thirty of their fellow weavers, February 10, It Is said, agreed to pay 150 each to'be rein stated In the local organization of the weavers from which they had been expelled. They were accused of being disturbers and their offer to pay a fine was declined by their fellow workers. Nine of these ten are to bo re-employed with the thirty-five who quit their looms in sympathy with . them. All of tho men are Alleplans and all have been at work since the strike was declared. The eighty out-of-town strike breakers who were brought here to fill the places of the Btrikers are to be given work if the mill owners find it practicable to operate the mills night and day. This plan, It is said, will not likely be put In operation and It Is understood the strikebreakers, most of whom expected to stay here only temporarily, will leave the city within the week. Old Wage to Stand. The silk workers are to work ten hours each day and at the soale of wages which went into effect March 13, and which is about 10 per cent, less than the silk workers received prior to that date. In the agreement made Saturday night, however, it is stipulated that the silk company will Increase the wage scale if Its em ployes can show that a higher rate Is being paid In other silk mills through out the country. On the other hand, if the wages paid elsewhere are lower the wages will be reduced In the local mills. Another clause in the agreement provides that none of the silk work ers who are under ball on charges growing out of the numeorus clashes between the strikers and strike breakers since the strike began are to be employed In the mills until their cases are disposed of by the Union county grand Jury, which Is now in session. Among those who will be affected by this provision Is Saba Balish, president of the weavers' union, and who has been the strikers’ leader. Two other strikers and a dozen strikebreakers are awaiting grand Jury action on their cases. flfi Hours a Week'll Work. Sixty-five hours may constitute a week's work unless the company de cides to operate the mills at night. Not all of the strikers will he em ployed In the weaving department to morrow because of the lack of silk warps to weave, but they will be Idle only until such time as the warping department may furnish warps, which will mean only a short time. It was on February 10 that ten of the Alleplan weavers were discharged by Superlnlendent l’aul Dorgeval on the demand of their fellow weavers. A few days later thirty-five Allepians quit their looms In sympathy with the discharged men. President Gerli Insisted that all of these men bo re employed. The other weavers re fused to work with them and threat ened to quit If Gerli persisted in his demand. March 17 four weavers were put to work by order of Gerli. These men w$re strangers and are accused by the strikers of being professional strikers and gunmen. The walkout of the weavers followed their employ ment. When the strike was declared a riot followed. These four men are barred from employment In the mills by the terms of the agreement reached Saturday night. Strike Goat the County f.1,500. Since the date on wheth the strike began there have been frequent clashes between the strikers and strikebreakers. Sheriff George C. Otto was called upon by Mayor Ber gen, who found the local police de partment unable to handle the strike situation. The expense of providing deputies, and which is borne by Union county, will reach probably $3,500. This city has also been obliged to bear the expense of special police offi cers required to do duty at the mills and In North Summit where the strikers and strikebreakers lived. MORTGAGE SET ASIDE, CLERK’S $13,000 Mistake in County Register's Office Alleged. May Sue Alworth. Referee Atwood L. Do Coster to day handed down an opinion setting aside a chattel mortgage of $13,000, held against the bankrupt furniture house of Kelly & Burke Company, of Washington street. A clerical error, alleged to have been made In the office of the county register, is re sponsible for the opinion. Kelly & Burke Company did an In stalment account business. On April 6, 1914, they gave a chattel mort gage to Andrew F. Evers Company, of Boston. The latter concern was the wholesale house from which Kelly & Burke obtained goods. Mayor Worral F. Mountain, of East Orange, the trustee, contested the validity of the mortgage. Referee Do Costa ordered the Kelly Sr. Burke stock sold and the proceeds held by the court until the Evers claim was settled. It developed that in recording the mortgage at the register’s office the clerk there failed to record the acknowledgment. The referee held that while the Evers claim was undoubtedly a good one, the mortgage could not be held valid as against the trustee. The latter was represented by Stein, Stein & Hannooh. Albert W. Harris, counsel for the Boston concern, has not determined1 whether he will bring action to re verse the referee’s ruling, or sue County Register Thomas P. Alworth for damages resulting from alleged negligence. Declares That Unless Call Is Unanimous He Won't Con sider It. From a Stuff Correspondent.
