LONDON, May 10 "Our enemle have
reached a degree of Infamy, culminating
in the destruction of the Lusltania, which
It la simply hopele to attempt to de

of the opposition In the House of Com
man, In a speech today. Mr. Bonar
Law's remarks'Were delivered on the oc
casion of the presentation of a medal to
Captain .Bell of the British steamship
Thordis, which rammed a German sub
marine off Beachey Head In February.
"This la not an act of warfare." Mr.
Bonar Law continued. "It Is simply mur
der most foul, most unnatural."
Haying that up to the present no "ef
fective protest" had been made by any
neutral country, he added: i
"What will happen now? The great
proud natlon-rthe United Btate 1 the
neutral country most closely affected by
this latest outrage. The simple fact la
that cttixens of that great country have
been barbarously murdered. It is not for

terests of the country, but by feelings

Mr. Bonar Law aald that If tha link

believed it would upon the feeling, not

Churchill Says that Escorts for
Merchantmen Arc Not Customary
LONDON. May 10,-Tho flrat lord of
the admiralty, Vlnton Fpencer Churchill,
stated in the House of Common this
afternoon that Captain Turner of the
Lusltania had acknowledged receipt of
massagea from the admiralty giving him
warning and directions for the course
he waa to take.. '
"The admiralty had general knowledge
of the German warning issued In
America," Mr. Churchill declared, "atid
from that knowledge and "Other Informa
tion concerning submarine movements it
sept warnings to the Lusttian and direc
tions aa to it' course. I think, however,
It Is not right to go Into that matter In
detail, as It Is going to be a subject of
Inquiry and It might appear that I was
endeavoring to throw blame' on the cap
tain of the Lusltiant. In a matter whit f
will be a subject of full Investigation.'' '
Continuing. Mr. Churchill aald this In
vestigation would be conducted by Lord
Mersey, assisted by skilled assessor, and
that, it would be opened without avoid
able delay. Mr. Churchill's remarks were
drawn by questions from Lord Charle
Bereaford and other, asking for detail
aa to what apeed the Lusltania waa mak
ing when It .was torpedoed; whether
there was a patrol boat in that locality;
whether all points where vessels arrive
and depart are now adequately patrolled;
what provision 'were made In the case
of the Lusltania In view of the warning
Issued, In America: whether Mr. Churchill
was aware that previously to last Friday
German aubmarlnee had for some time
been actively at work on the south coast
of Ireland; whether he was aware that
th admiralty had provided torpedo boats
and other naval vessels to meet on the
south coast of Ireland steamers carrying
horses from the United States on govern
ment account to convoy them to Liver
pool, and, finally, what arrangements, if
any, were made to convoy and protect the
Mr. Churchill, replying "to further ques
tions, spoke as .follow :
'"The ihocklns' exception of "the Lu1
tanla ahould not divert the attention of
the House of Common and the country
from tho fact that Great Britain's entire
seaport trade has been carried on without
appreciative loss. The general principle
regarding the providing of an escort Is,
that merchant traffic must' look after
itself, subject to the general arrange
ments of the admiralty, and there is no
reason to suppose that thia principle is
not entirely successful."
