MORSE WILL STAY
If TOMBS PRISON
Judges Refuse to Admit Con
victed High Financier
ONLY ONE LOOPHOLE OPEN
Appeal Court Hcfuios to Reverse
Trial Jud?e, Who Said Offense
ot Extraditable More Is
Cast Down by Failure.
NEAV YORK. Nor. Bail was denied
C. V. Morse. th financier, who has ben
Bntnr1 to l- years Imprisonment at
hard labor, at the closing of the United
States Circuit Court of Appeals today,
and it now teems certain that the former
muUi-mllUonalre must remain in the
Tombs prison at least until December 3.
next, when argument on the writ of error
that has been (rranted him may come up.
Judges Jjacombe. Ward and Cox of the
t'mted States Court of Appeals rendered
the decision late today.
One loophole is left open to Morse's
counsel in the decision and that Is that
the judges decided that, while hall was
denied, it was done "without prejudice
to a renewal of the application after a
bill of particulars is filed."
The judges stated briefly, that as the
trial Judge in the proceedings against
Morse had refused to admit him to ball,
the reviewing; Judges were not prepared,
on the papers submitted to them, to make
a disposition of the motion.
Morse had been hopeful Of gaining his
release from the Tomos today and the
dental of bail came as a hard blow. His
wife and son. Harry, had been wUh him
In the jail during the afternoon and en
couraged him in the belief that he would
be free by nightfall. .Mrs. Morse and her
son left the prison before the decision
had been rendered and the nws was con
vyed to the prisoner by an associat tn
his counsel's trice. '
While Morse tried to hi tie his disap
pointment, he felt too cast down to do so.
lie walked to the rear of his cell and sat
on the edge of his .hard, narrow berth
and refused to make any comment.
Judge Hough gave as his reason for
re fusing to admit Morse to bail, that the
case was not an extraditable one and that
It would be easy for Morse to provide
ball through a bonding company, as the
prisoner was worth $.,000.0). Morse, in
an affidavit presented to the Judges of
the Court' of Appeals yesterday, denied
that he was a millionaire, saying that he
had not enough money or securities to
meet his obligations.
It is said that the Morse attorneys will
file a hill of particulars, as Morse is ex
ceedingly desirous of obtaining his release.

ances with referenda to Great Britain and
th excitement and regret aroused thereby
tn Germany will. I am convinced, lead the
' Kmper-ir tn future private conversations to
exer.-i, that reserve, which, in the Inter
cut of a uniform policy and the authority
of the crown, is Indispensable.
If this provea not to ie so. neither I nor
any of my successors could take the re
sponsibility. I accepted the blame for the
puhMcatlon of the article in the Dally
Telegraph and offered my resignation and
it was the most difficult task In my politi
cal life to resolve to remain In office. How
Ion 1 will continue there I do not know,
but I consider It my duty at this difficult
period to continue to aerve the Emperor
and the nation.
Lihrral Leader's Assault.
Herr HMwrmann, a National Liberal,
opened the debate. He expressed a
hearty desire for the continuance of
friendly relations with foreign coun
tries, and said that he believed a very
small proportion of the German people
was unfriendly to Great Britain. The
personal element In foreign politics
was dangerous, he declared, and the
hlRlier a. man stood the greater care he
should take of bis utterances. A re
sponsible ofaclnl should examine his
remarks. The National Liberals did not
desire tile resignation of Chancellor von
Buelow. but they did want the elimi
nation of the personal element from
the conduct of foreign' affairs, as Its
continuance was bound to bring fail
ure. Herr Bassrruiann recited ' the evil
efTects of the Emperor's utterances,
lie said that China. Japan and America
had taken note of the fact that the
German fleet had ren authoritatively
described as for action on the Pacific.
The Japanese press had been in an up
roar over this declaration. Great Brit
ain had been stirred to greater naval
preparations, and Germany's relations
had become worse with wellnigh all the
principal powers, but especially with
France. Russia. Great Britain and
Mnst Kntl Personal Element.
There ought to be an end to Imperial
personal policies and Interference with
the responsibilities of the Chancellor,
such as had been manifested recently
in the Tower-Hill and the Tweedmouth
affairs. Practically the entire German
repl was of one mind concerning the
ruinous effects of direct imperial inter
ference In the foreign affairs of the na
tion. Loai monarchists could only re
gret that damage had been done the
monarchical principle, especially at a
time when a strong republican party
had grown up. This statement was
greeted with applause from the Social
ists. Plerr Bassermann said:
Not Hostile to Britain.
The Emperor u very badly Infurmed when
be aaya that the tierrrmn people, are hostile
to Grent Britain. It has been affirmed a
hundred times in this bouse that our fleet
t not aimed at Great brltaln. that it la
solely a defensive precaution for the pro
tection of our coast, our merchant marine
ar.J our ports. 1H have never beard before,
we who passed the naval programme, that
the fleet was Intended for action in the Pa
cine in furtherance of a world policy. This
statement must be absolutely denied, along
with the other Imperial utterance'.
Tbe publication of this, imperial declara
tion is not the worst feature of the incident.
1: is the fact that these opinions are held
and passed from mouth to mouth. No one
kaoma how many similar conversations with
forelrners repose among the archives of
other governments. They ail are In contra
ver.lton of article 17 of the constitution. '
which provides that imperial act In foreign
affairs must ba countersigned by the Chan
cellor. Must Guard Constitution.
In conclusion. Herr Bassermann said
that the NaUonal i-iberals did not de
mand the resignation of Chancellor von
Buelow. hut they did insist upon some
sort of gmrantee that the Chancellor
would guard his constitutional preroga
tives and resist unconstitutional Inter
ference from the Emperor. The party
was loyal to the Kmperor and knew
that he had been actuated only by good
motives, but It deplored tk possibility
of a chasm between the sovereign and
the people and sincerely hoped that this
incident would be the beginning of a
strict observance of constitutional rela
tions. Herr 'Wiemer, radical, followed and said
"We regret greatly the Incident over the
appointment of David J. Hill to the post
of American Ambassador In Berlin, tend
ing as It .did to disturb the- good rela
tions between the United States and Ger
many. It was well said, on the other
side of the ocean, that our representa
tives abroad shall not be checkbooks,
but men." x
Would Have Tried Any Other Man.
This statement brought out applause.
Herr Singer. Socialist, declared that Ger
many had sunk low in foreign opinion
through the incapacity and levity of per
sons In responsible places. In the con
stitutional system of Germany, the King
was the first servant of the state, he de
clared, and if another servant of the state,
had done such a thing as has Emperor
William, he would be brought before an
Imperial court for trial. The speaker ex
plained that he referred to the trial for
treason of Professor Oeffkcn. for publish
ing the diary of Frederick III. Herr Sing
er's speech was greeted by Socialist ap
Chancellor von Buelow then made his
speech in reply as already quoted.
Herr von Heyderbrandt and Prince
Hatifeldt. Conservatives, and Baron von
Hertllng. a member of the Center party,
took part In the debate and protested
energetically against the personal element
being Injected iruo foreign politics.
Doubts Kaiser's Reform.
Herr Lelbermann von Sonnenberc. the
Agrarian and Anti-Semite, surprised the
hou.se by the vehemence of his utter
ances. He declared that the monarchists,
with heavy hearts, found themselves
compelled to protest firmly against tho
Emperor's statements. The nation's con
fidence, he said, had sunk to zero.
"We do not believe." he continued,
"that the Chancellor can take the respon
sibility, or that the future will bring any
real improvement. The Improvement will
last only until the next time. Evidence
exists that there Is further material In
foreign hands for use when the occasion
The house adjourned nntll tomorrow,
and when the Chancellor departed the
crowds outside the doors cheered and
INTERVIEW CACSE OP STORM
Kaiser Denounces England for Dis
trust of Her Proved Friend.
The interview with an unnamed Eng
lishman, which has caused a storm of
criticism of the Kaiser, was given by
the Kaiser for the purpose of proving
that. Instead of being hostile, he is
frlandlv to Great Britain, and was pub
lished in the Loncfon Telegraph. It
caused Chancelor von Buelow to offer
his resignation, which the Emperor de
clined. The Interview Is made up of the
usbstance of various conversations, and
was published by the Emperors per
mission. In it he said:
Ton English are mad. mad. mad as
March hares. What has come over you
that you are so completely given over to
suspicions quite unworthy of a greut na
tion? What more can 1 do than I have
done I declared with all the emphasis
at my command. In my speech at Guildhall,
that my heart Is set upon peace, and that
It is one of my dearest wishes to live on
the best of terms with England. Have I
ever been false to my word? Falsehood
and prevarications are alien to my najure.
My actions ought to speak for themselves,
but you listen not to them, ubt to those
who misinterpret and distort them. That
Is a personal Insult, whl, h I feel and re
sent. To be forever misjudged, to h-ive
my repeated offers of frlenilshlp welched
and scrutinised with Jealous, mlstrunful
eyes, taxes mv patience severely. I have
said time after time that I am a friend
of England, and your press or. a: least,
a considerable section of it bids the people
of England refuse my proffered hand, and
Insinuates that the other, hoids a dagger.
How can I convince a nation against Its
Admits Germans Hostile.
I repeat that I am the friend of Eng
land, but you make things difficult for me.
Mr task Is not of the easiest. The pre
vailing sentiment among large sections of
the middle and lower classes of niy own
people is not frl-ndly to England. I am.
therefore, so to speak. In a minority in my
own land, but It Is a minority of the best
elements. Just as it Is In Ensland wiin
respect to Germany. That Is another rea
son why I resent your refusal to accept my
pledged word that I am the friend of Eng
land. I strive without ceasing to Improve
relations, and you retort that I am y.iur
arch enemv. You make it very hard for
me. Why is it?
German Action in Morocco.
"Therefore." savs the Interviewer, "I ven
tured to remind His Majesty thst not Kns
Isnrl alone, but the whole of Europe had
viewed with disapproval the recent action
of Germany In allowing the German Consul
to return from Tangier to Fes. and In an
ticipating the Joint action of France and
Spain by suggesting to the. Powers that the
time had come for Europe to recognize
Mulev Hafld as the new fiuitan or Morocco.
His MaJestV made a gesture of Impatience.
Yes,' he said, 'that Is an excellent exam
ple of the sir In which German action Is
The Kaiser Is then quoted as saying
that the German Consul was sent to
Fez to look afteh the interests of Ger
man subjects who had cried for protec
ready been at Fez several months; that
Muley Hafld had notified the powers of
his acceptance of the Algeclras treaty
before he won the decisive battle with
Abdul Aziz, and that therefore Ger
many considered it unnecessary to
await a second communication before
recognizing him as Sultan. When re
minded that an Influential section of
the German press had hailed this rec
ognition of Muley Hand as a decisive
indication that Germany was about to
intervene In Morocco, the Kaiser at
trlbuttd this to mischief-makers, and
ssld there had been nothing In Ger
many's recent actions regarding Mo
rocco contrary to his declared love of
The Interviewer says the Emperor
then reverted to his proved friendship
for England, and quotes him as saying:
Saved Britain in Boer War.
I have referred to the speeches In which
I have done all that a sovereign can to
proclaim my good will. But. as actions
speak louder than words, let me also refer
to my acts. It Is commonly believed In
England that throughout the Houth African
war Germany was hostile to her. '.rman
opinion undoubtedly was hostile bitterly
hostile. The press was hcstlle: private
opinion was hostile. Hut what of official
Germany? Let my critics ask themselves
what brought to a sudden stop. and. indeed,
to absolute collapse, the European tour
of the Hoer delegate who were striving to
obtain European intervention ? They were
feted in Holland; France gave theni a rap
turous welcome. They wished to come to
Merlin, where the German people would
have crowned them with flowers. But
when they asked me to receive them I re
fused The agitation immediately died
away, and the delenatlon returned empty
handed. Was that. I ask. the action of a
aecret enemy? 4 ,
Again, when the struggle was at Its
height, the German government was invited
by the governments of France and Russia
to Join with them In calling upon Kngland
to nut an end to the war. The moment
had come they said, not only to save the.
Boer republics, but also to humiliate Eng
land to the dust. What was my reply? I
ssUd that so lax from Germany Joining In
any concerted European action to put
nressure upon England and bring about her
downfall. Germany would always keep aloof
from politics that could bring her into com
plications with a sea power like England.
Posterity will one day read the exact terms
of the telegram now In the archives of

The Interview was coldly received In
England, where the Emperor's famous
telegram to the Boer President is re
membered. In Germany, it has created
consternation and indignation. It
seems that the Emperor, as was proper,
sent it to Von Buelow. who sent it to
the Foreign Bureau. But the Emperor,
Van Buelow and the Minister of For
eign Affairs were all absent in differ
ent diiections for a holiday, and It went
lo a subordinate, who did not dare to
otter and criticism of the Emperor's
action, but simply did his duty In cer
tifying to the correctness of the his
torical settements made. .It then came
back to Von Buelow with other docu
ments, and his secretary did not call

and Von Buelow did not read It till It
