London, June 10 Rear Admiral William S. Sims, U. S. N., today defied the American Navy Department to "muzzle" him. The Admiral, who has been called upon by the Secretaiy of the Navy Denby at Washington to ex plain his sensational "jackass" speech on Tuesday made another public address at a luncheon this afternoon at whieh he announced that he intends to keep on saying what he thinks. Laughter interrupted the speaker; when Admiral Sims said he was "afraid he had gone to excess in tell ing the truth: at least, in the minds of certain people." He continued: "I am accused of being pro-British, I am pro-British, I am pro French or pro-ally or pro-anything that makes for the advancement of the world." Admiral Sims was the guest of the American Luncheon club. Qilson Cross, who introduced the outpsoken American naval officer referred to him in these words: "Every honest thinking, full blood ed American will stand by what Ad miral Sims said on Tuesday." The cheers which greeted the Ad miral lasted for a minute and a half. 'I have attempted on all occasions to say what I wanted to say," de clared Admiral Sims in addressing the gathering. "I have always told the truth as I understood it. I am afraid I told what I believe to be the truth the other day. "Whatl said the other day is prac tically the same as has been said re peatedly upon American platforms. I intend to keep on doing the same thing. If that is un-American let them make the best of it." Before the luncheon the Admiral ndmitted that he had received a cablegram from Secretary of Navy demanding an explanation of his pre vious speech when be referred to "jackass" resolutions of sympathy for the Sinn Fern in America and charg ed the Sinn Fein with being responsi ble for the loss of American lives in the war.

Another Clue Is Exploded Failing to hear from the police of Norfalk, Va., with whom fhey com municated over a week ago, local of ficials are inclined to believe that the letter alleged to have been written in that city by John Kenneth Moore, missing Stratford boy, is another hoax. The communication which was re ceived by the boy's father, George Moore, asked that money be sent to a certain address in Norfolk. and bore Kenneth's signature.

Gerald Bryant took the stand this morning during the hearing con ducted by Coroner John J. Bhelan in to the death of Mary Novak, five, of 124 Columbia street, who died Tues day from injureies received on May 23 when struck by the Bryant car nenr South Park avenue and Gregory street. A number of witnesses were exam ined, including traffic squad officer Harry Beardsley who made an inves tigation three days after the acci dent, Bryant being arrested several days later on a charge of reckless driving. The general trend of testimony was to the effect that the Bryant car, a Buick coupe, license number 32173, was south bound on Bark avenue shortly after noonday. The little No vak child and another little girl were crossing the street When Bryant sounded his horn three or four times the smaller of the children went back to the east side walk. The Novak child made a similar start, changed her mind, and dashed to the west sidewalk. Bryant braked his car and turned sharply to the right, endeavoring to thus avoid the child. The little girl apparently ran directly into the car, which wae going at a speed estimated between 15 and 25 miles an hour, was not run over, but struck with suf ficient force to throw her on the parkage. She suffered a fractured skull, and all her limbs were broken. She was taken to St. Vincent's hospi tal, where she held her own for sev eral days, and then rapidly declined. Bryant is now being held under bonds of $1,000 on a charge of majislaghter, pending the result of the coroner's inquiry.
