. WNDON. July 17. The findings of
J the British court of Inquiry that in
't vestigated the sinking of the Lusitania
were read today by Lord Mersey, who
presided at the hearings. The court
found that the liner was torpedoed bv
J a German submarine and that "the act
t was done not merely with the Inten
J tion of sinking the ship, but also with
the Intention of destroying the lives
of the people on board."
J The vessel was held to have been
unarmed. Conduct of the officers and
J crew was held blameless. Life-saving
- facilities were declared to have been
adequate. The Cunard Line, owner of
-the vessel. Is exculpated from all
t blame. No incompetence or neglect is
J "found. Mishaps attending the launch -
ing of the boats were declared un
avoidable. Passenger' Conduct Praiseworthy.
- . Passengers were declared also to have
conducted themselves in a praiseworthy
manner, except for a slight panic in
the steerage. The vessel's cargo was
a general one, but included 6000 cases
of cartridges. These cartridges did not
explode, according to the findings of
There were several American surviv
ors in the small audience that listened
.while the report was read. They made
no secret of their disapproval of the
passages exonerating te line and the
captain and commending the discipline
' of the crew. These phases of the find-
ings are expected to have an important
bearing on possible litigation against

spectators were Walter Webb-Ware.

Captains Declared Efficient.
-.: , Lord Mersey, in handing dowa the
---Judgment, scid in part:
"The captain of the ship. Mr. Thomas
.Turner, gave his evidence truthfully
and well. I am quite satisfied that the
"-two captains and the officers are com
Tetent men and that they did their
duty. Captain Turner remained on the
bridge until he was swept into the
- sea and Captain Anderson was working
on deck until ho went overboard and

Jiortoii, a member of the crew who

'the Lusitania was torpedoed, saying:
" "H was only 18 years old. but he
'seems to have exhibited great cour
age, self-possession and resource. He
' was the first to observe the approach
-of the torpedoes and before they had
-touched the ship he had reported them
to the bridge by means of a telephone."

torpedo hit the Lusitania, and later

Mersey said the youth, aided by a mem

In saving nearly 100 lives.

LONDON. July 1. (Correspondence
of the United. Press.) Most clergymen,
both Church of Lngland and noncon
formist, are convinced that England's
cause is just and that Uod is on her
aldo. Some of them actually believe
that angels are helping the British
troops to triumph over tho Germans. A
Church ' of England clergyman at
Southampton writes in hla parUh mag
azine: "The daughter of a well-known
canon of the church knows two officers
who themselves saw the angels who
savta our left wing in the retreat
Then he goes on to describe how the
G-irman cavalry in overwhelming
numbers were swooping down on tho
'"Xhey saw between them and the
enemy a whole troop of angels." he
gjes on. "Tho German horses turned
around, terrified, and stampeded. Tha
mn tugged at their bridles, but the
poor Leasts tore away In every direc
tion from our men."
Angello Intervention Credited.
Dr. Horton. a distinguished Congre
gationalism lends the weight of hta
authority to this same story of the
angelic Intervention. In a sermon de
livered at Manchester ho said:
"There is a. story repeated by so
many eye-witnesses that if anything
can be established by contemporary
evidence it Is established of the re

was in Imminent peril and seemed as
if it must Inevitably be borne down
and cut off.

animals beheld what our men beheld.
The German soldiers endeavored to

they fled, it was the salvation of our
Transport Saved by Prayer.
In the same sermon Dr. Horton told
another story of how a transport ship
in the Dardanelles was saved, as he
believes, by prayer. He said:
"I( had news from the Dardanelles
last week but one. A sailor on one
ot our transport ships told me in the
minj.icBi language now airships of the
enemy came over the vessel dropping
bombs. The captain, who Is a man of
God, gave the order to the men to
pray. They knelt on the deck and
prayed and the Lord delivered them.
The 18 bombs which seemed to be fall

ington. July n. The Government haa
been urged to go Into tho copper-smelting
business In Alaska. The request
camo from U. S. Rush, of Ka.aan.
Alaska, near Ketchikan, who wrote the
director ot the bureau of mines sug
gesting that the Government establish
a smeiter at some convenient point in
Southeastern Alaska to handle tha cop
per ore produced in Alaskan mines. -
It would require an act of Congress
to establish a Government smelter In

bo advlxable to Invest In such an enter
prise, it is understood that at least one
member of Congress from an Kaatern
state has declared his purpose of Intro
aucing a bill making an appropriation
tor a Goverment smelter In Alaska and
als purpose to presa this bill.
Tho complaint of Mr. Rush Is that
tha small copper producer iq Alaska Is
not getting a square deal from the
smelters In British Columbia, where
much of the Alaska copper ore is
shipped. The copper from the Guggen
heima' Bonansa mine in Alaska, of
course. Is shipped to their own. smelter
at Tacoma, with some other of the
Alaska ore. The small producers charge
that tha smelters do not cay thein fairly
for tbetr ore, and undervalue their ship
ments, thus depriving them of a part
of tbelr legitimate earnings. This is
tha old complaint heard from the small
producer In overy copper field.
The Idea of Mr. Rush and others
who are supporting him Is that if the
Government would establlKh and oper
ate Its own smelter In Alatka the In
dividual miners would get fair treat

appeals to the bureau of mines, of
