Federal Official
Says Story Boy-Ed
In America Is False
Philadelphia, March 13. Stories
published here today that Captain
Karl Boy-Ed, former naval attache
at the German embassy at Washing
ton, was in this city as recently as a
week ago and linking his name with
the alleged smuggling pot involving
the two interned German commerce
raiders at the Philadelphia navy yard,
were declared tonight to be without
foundation by Frank Garbarino, head
of the local bureau of investigation of
the federal Department of Justice.
Agents of the department were given
as authority for the stories, which
were to the effect that Captain Boy
Ed had come here, presumably to
visit a young woman prominent in
social circles in Philadelphia and
Washington, to whom he had been
reported engaged prior to his dis
missal fron this country in Decem
ber, 1915.
Gabarino said there was absolutely
nothing on which to base such state
ments and denied emphatically that
either he or his assistants had given
out such information, either privately
or for publication. "The stories are
ridiculous on their face," declared
Garbarino.
Joint Committee Dry Bill
Emerges From Committee
Lincoln, March 13. (Special.)
The senate prohibition committee this
morning reported out the joint com
mittee dry bill, House Roll 793, with
out amendments. This decision was
reached at a meeting of the senate
committee at the Lindcll hotel Mon
day evening.
The bill as it now stands is con
siderably amended and modified by
house committee, of the whole amend
ments, which make many alterations
in minor provisions as compared with
the original bill- drafted by the joint
committee. .
At the same time the committee re
ported out Senate File No. 208, the
bill of the committee minority Mor
iarty, Mattes, Kohl and Albert which
places a fine of from $10 to $100 on
druggists who advertise remedies con
taining more than 2 per cent alcohol
and on newspapers which accept this
advertising.
"How does this happen?" said Sen
atory Moriarty, indicating that ft
might have been his preference to
have it killed.
Issue Developing Between
Britain and Holland
London, March 13. The experi
ence of the defensively armed Brit
ish steamer Princess Melita, which
was forced by the Dutch government
to leave the Hook of Holland because
of its armament has raised an issue
which, it is believed, will assume the
nature of a test case.
It is stated that tli? British gov
ernment will insist upon defensively
armed ships being permitted to enter
Dutch ports.
Negotiations between Great Britain
and Holland regarding the retention
of ships in Dutch harbors are still
proceeding. The British government
is unbending in its determination not
to acquiesce in the policy of the
Dutch in keeping their ships in their
harbors because of the German sub
marine threat. It is hoped that a com
promise may be reached, under which
Holland can procure guarantees
from both belligerents for a safe
route for its vessels.

Definite Orders to
"Armed Guards'" on
IT. S. Merchant Ships
Washington. March 13. Complete
and definite instructions to the "armed
guards" to be placed aboard Ameri
can merchant craft bound through
the German submarine zones have
been completed by the Navy depart
ment and approved by Secretary
Lansing. They will be forwarded to the
navy personnel aboard the merchant
craft whenever the ships which are
to be armed are ready to sail.
The nature of the instructions will
not be made public. They were care
fully prepared by navy officials and
then submitted to Secretary Lansing
at whose suggestion some amend
ments was made.
It is planned not to broadcast the
orders merely through the naval
service, but to furnish the officer in
command of the armed guard on each
ship with a copy when his vessel is
ready to sail.
The Navy department is making
every effort to suppress all informa
tion regarding armed ships, such as
sailing dates, -the equipment put
aboard by the navy, the personnel
supplied to handle the guns or any
thing that might be of the slightest
value to an enemy. It was said offi
cially, however, that no conflict of
jurisdiction be'twecn the ship master
and the gun crews would arise.
