the Inevitable suggestion that his con
nectlon with the embassy should be term
inated. Each time, .however, the threatened
action came to nothing. While the State
department consistently refused to dis
cuss the captain's rase, the German em
bassy intimated that it had reason to be

should be censured.
Captain Boy-ed'a first activities which
attracted the attention of the government
were In connection with the misuse of
American passports to Oerman reservists
seeking to slip through ths allied lines
to join their armies. Boms of ths men In

Ameriran line officials Just concluded In
New York, In which witnesses testified
that Captain Boy-ed handled ths money
which earns from Berlin for chartering
ths ships and furnishing them with sup
plies. Ths government did not contend that
an offense sgalmt ths neutrality of the
United Btates had been committed by
sending ths ships, but that ths officials
of ths Hamburg-American line had guilty

The inference ran broadly all through
the trial that Captain Boy-ed. too, was
cognisant of the offenses which the gov

of the trial his nams was frequently
mentioned In open court by ths govern
ment prosecutors. Finally the State de
partment, here suddenly Intervened and
cautioned the officials of the Judiciary

expected to indict Captain Boy-ed for
the offenses charged, the language em
ployed by prosecutors should be avoided
for the reason It might endanger the

States and Germany,

The Germany embassy manifested to
the Btate department Its displeasure with
features of the trial in New. York which
reflected upon the character of officials

generally accredited with having been

cedure la such a ease Is to regard the

.Captain Boy-ed would not necessarily
