lengthy editorial articles to the Incident.
A majority of the papers agree that there

The Dally Telegraph says: "There is no

The Telegraph holds that the precedent

The Morning Post says the incident is
valuable as introducing some necessary

"If tbe punitive process should Involve
the occupation of territory for lta purposes
what would be the attitude of the United

The Dally News publishes a striking
analogy of the personal characteristics of

sufficient to send a wave of excitement

"If Panther's actios w mnt s a

the News, "has very astutely turned a
blind eye to the signal.' He declines to

done by the State department at this Junc
ture. The official have not changed their
view that the Incident wa one between tne
German and Haytlan government and that
It wa' not our business. The Berlin ad
vice to the effect that the Haytlan govern
ment had expressed lta satisfaction with
the situation being brought to tb atten
tion of tbe department here, went to con
firm tbe official in their position.
No American Interest hsve been affected
unfavorably. In their Judgment, and a tha
United State ha not recognised the rev
olutlonst In Haytl, there 1 no on to make
complaint to thla government. On the
whole, it IS felt that the termination of
Kllllck' carr In summary faehlon may
have a salutary effect, not only In Haytl,
but alio In South and Central American
countries, where heretofore the (lightest
revolutionary disturbance has been made
the pretext for vexations and expensive In
terference with foreign merchant vessels.
Only recently ths British cruiser Phaeton
waa obliged to force the Colombian govern
ment to release tbe British steamer Equa

service a a troop transport, while atlll
more recently Commander McCrea adopted
a similarly vigorous course with respect to
this same Admiral Kllllck and It la not
doubted that had he remained in Haytlan
water he would have seled the Crete-a-Plerrot
for violation of hi warning to let
foreign eblpplng alone. Altogether these
active naval measures are expecting to have
beneficial results throughout that section of

BRIEF .FILED IN STEEL SUIT
Case Be Dismissed la Opposed
NEW YORK. Sept. 8. A brief was filed
today In Newark. N. J., by tbe complainants
In the action of J. Asplnwall Hodge, Jr.. and
others against tbe United States Steel Cor
poratlon to prevent ths retirement of 1230,-
000.000 preferred stock and tbe Issue of
8260.000,000 bonds by tbs corporation. Ths
brief filed oppose a motion by tb corpora
tion'a attorney that th pult be dismissed
aa a conspiracy..
Affidavits by Mr. Hodge a to hi good
faith la tb suit and by James H. Lancaster
denying alleged admission by hlin to a
clerk of Mr. Quthrle, of counsel, fur th
defendant corporation, also wer filed today,
The brief Iliad by tbe attorneys for Mr
Hod, accuse th United Bute Steel cor
poratlen and Its attorneys of tampering
with James H. Lancaster, a witness for the
complainants, of being afraid to examine
Mr. Hodge, of Intimidating would-be com
plainants and of attempting to delay a
Judicial decision on the merits of the rase.
"As the position of these professional
majority stockholders becomes more safe
from ordinary attack, their boldness in
violating equity and good morals propor
tionately Increases," ssys Mr. Hodge,
through his lawyers. "It is becoming more
and more Important for them to stifle In
quiry In court and therefore, as a first step,
to make It so disagreeable to sue them
that they will not be sued."
In conclusion, the complainants ask for
an early decision on their motion on the
Injunction to restrain the proposed retire
ment of stock and issutl of bonds.
