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
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
Near Clash in Londonderry.
LONDONDERRY, England,' July 13.
The Orangemen here began the celebra
tion of the anniversary of. the battle of
the Boyne with' a cannonade, during,
which they projected their explosives so
that they burst over the residences In the
Catholic section of the city.

Daniels Advises Future Admire!
Study International L
Action of Admiral MaTWrampIco
and Commodore Terry in
Japan Are Ctteid Trro
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
"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." Superior Again Wet
