NEAR CLASH IN LONDONDERRY Homtx Exploded Oyer Catholic Por tion of Cttr Darin Celebration Gtves TUmo to Report of Bnttle- DRUMS EG, Ireland. July IS. The Orangemen's demonstration bere today culminated In a scene of Immense en thusiasm around the tiny platform -where Blr Edward Carson, Bible In hand, pledged the covenantors never to surrender to coercion, to remain loyal to the throne and never to waver In their support of their leader In the fight against home rule. Bar Edward Carson, In a speech whloh evoked tremendous enthuslam, served notion on the British government that unless It was prepared to leave Ulster alone It would very shortly find the TJl atermen recognising no government ex cept the provisional government of Ul ster. He said he had been given authority to act and that If 1 necessary that meant he was to exercise his powers without regard to consequences to himself. The Ulster men he added, were not going to give -way and were bound to win be cause God would defend the right. Sir Edward Carson offered tho govern ment the alternatives of giving Ulster a clean out out of home rule or of coming to' fight tho Ulstermen. These, he said, were the only possible alternatives. V.l ster, he concluded, was claiming only Juk Uoe and if it did not get It from the gov ernment would take It for Itself. Honor Carson, BELFAST, July 1!. The Insistent de mand of the Protestant portion of the province of Ulster for exclusion from the operations ot the Irish home rule bill lent added Interest to today's celebra tion of the anniversary of the battle of the Borne. The celebration was carried out bere with great enthusiasm. Sid Edward Carson, tho Ulster Union ist leader rode t the head of"" 6.000 Orangemen accompanied by the usual fife and" drum bands and Including- a sprinkling of brethren from the United Elates ,and the British colonies. They marched through .the city of Belfast to Drumbeg, where a great open air meet ing was' addressed by Sir Edward and other leaders. The Nationalist quarter of Belfast was carefully avoided by the demonstrants, and on no occasion during the procession did 'the rival factions come Into contact So little did the authorities expect trouble that they depended entirely on the local police force to keep order. All tho mili tary were confined to barracks, as Is usually the case during political demon str&ttons. A great crowd of tourists. Including many Americans, came to see the pro cession and to hear the speeches which Were a prelude to, resolutions calling on Iho Ulster leaders to take what steps they considered necessary to prevent Ul ster coming under the authority of the Dublin Parliament. .Carson Hero of Day. Sir Edward Carson was the hero of the day. Buttons bearing bis portrait Were worn by nearly every man In the procession, while great canvasses spread across the streets in the Unlolst section of the city bore his likeness. It Is regarded as significant that In recent Interviews he has given Sir Ed ward Is quoted as saying that the only condition of peace is the exclusion of Ulster "for the present" while the more remote action of the Unionists must, in his opinion, depend on tho way the Dub lin Parliament treats Protestants In the other provinces of Ireland. Throughout the province of Ulster and notably In Londonberry. extensive pro cautions were taken by the authorities against possible clashes between the or ganised forces ot the Protestants and Catholics. Near Clash in Londonderry. LONDONDERRY, England,' July 13.

Study International L MUCH DEPENDS OWmMKS&nn Action of Admiral MaTWrampIco and Commodore Terry in Japan Are Ctteid Trro Examples, NEWPORT, R. L, July 13. How the nation's foreign policy often hangs on the action and discretion ot a naval of ficer commanding a warship In a far away port, was discussed by Secretary Daniels here today at the opening of the naval war college session. He pictured the duties ot the naval officer In the role of diplomat, recalled Incidents in which commanders of American warships in foreign ports had opened new chapters In American history, and urged officers at the college and marine officers to train themselves In International law and the languages In preparation for such emergencies. "If he bo uninformed as to the require ments of international law, what conse quences of evil may flow from his Ig norance? If ha lack tact and a sense of courtesy, how he may block the path of his country to serve the people to whom ho Is sent and prevent the opening ot doors through which his countrymen might enter to promote commerce and forge ties of friendllnoss and amity?" There had been no secretary of state. Mr. Daniels said, who had availed him self of the service of the naval officer as a diplomat "who has shown greater confidence In his ability, his judgment and his absolute trustworthiness" than has Secretary Bryan. Mayo ForcM Ilrynn's Hand. The speaker recalled tho demand made for a salute of tho Stars and Stripes by Admiral Mayo at Tampico as an example of how the action of a. naval officer in a foreign country precipitated "an issue not contemplated in diplomatic channels, and Irrevocably committed his govern ment to a policy of action In support ot his demand." Perry's achievement in the opening, of Japan to commerce, Dewey's brilliant victory and his adminis tration In Philippine waters, and finally Rear Admiral Fletcher's occupation of Vera Cruz were pointed to by the secre tary as conspicuous Instances of the double service required ot the American naval officer abroad. "There is very recent proof that Perry was a true prophet when, he foresaw friendship between the United States and Japan.' In the. present -llcxlcan trouble the Japanese have been scrupulous to prevent the shipment of arms by Japa nese manufacturers." Cuba and Philippine. If all American diplomacy In the Spanish-American war had been modeled after that of Perry's, the secretary declared, "the United States might not have yielded to the temptation of imperialism. It our government had followed closely the diplomatic pace set by another great commodore of the Untted States navy, who, himself, followed the diplomacy of Perry and squared his every action with the basio doctrines ot our ropubllc, we would not have strayed so far afield. We would at least havo been consistent In our diplomacy; we would not have laid down one rulo for Cuba and another for the Philippines. "When you stop to think of It," said the secretary, "no representative of our government, official or unofficial, can command such respect or can Impress another country so deeply with the power of his government as the captain ot a warship lying In the harbor with Us decks cleared, perhaps, for action, and its ominous twelve-Inch guns trained on the town. Believe me, gentlemen, that man la going to be seriously listened to by every official within range of the ship's arma ment."

"Criminal negligence" and "one ot the most glaring Instances ot maladministration revealed In all the history of American railroad ing," were the terms the Interstate Com merce commission employed today In re porting to the senate on Its Investigation ot New Haven railroad financial affairs.

Many of the transactions, characterised violations ot the laws ot New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and th federal anti-trust laws, have been re ported to the authorities of the states and the federal Department of Justice.

Billiard of the Blllard com pany were merely agencies of the New Haven; Billiard never used a dollar of his own money and burned his books and papers. It was not the understanding of the New Havenb oard that he should take profits of more than $3,000,000. "All the assets of the Blllard company belong to New Haven stockholders, and a suit by tho railroad against Blllard and those who participated In the trans actions should be maintained."

The amount Illegally expended should ba recoverable. The purchase of Rhode Island trolley) lines and coastwise steamships were de scribed kh extravagant and wasteful. All the transactions, the commission holds, were consummated with the ob ject of setting up a complete transpor tation monopoly In New England In vio lation ot the federal atatutes. 0 All the commission's strictures were or the management of the New Haven sys tem under former President Mellen.
