Circumstantial Evidence Re-

NEW ISSUE RAISED OVER
Liner Bringing Affidavits of
Survivors Now Not Due
By Robert J. Bender.
(Tinted Press Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, April 10. The liner St.
Paul which was expected to reach Now
York today with Affidavits from sur
vivors of the liner Sussex disaster, is
not likely to get to Port before Thurs
day. This may delay an important de
cision with regard to German-American
relations, which was to havo been
reached at tomorrow's session of the
Ambassador Gerard's report bearing
on the German disclaimer of responsi
bility for the Sussex explosion is rue
here today. A compilation of evidence
is kept a closely guarded secret. A
high authority, however, stated it was
"strong enough" to convince President
Wilson that a Teuton submarine at
tacked tho Sussex, but perhaps not suf
ficiently conclusive to warrant a sev
erance of diplomatic relations.
While Germany declared that in tor
pedoing four British freighters it did
not violate any of its assurances to the
United States, America is reported to
see in that stand an attitude deserving
of an immedi.ito sharp check. Facing
the difficulty of proving individual
cases, officialdom believes Presjdeut

proves sufficiently strong.

at once. Today H5S bushels, or about
-0,000 pounds of state grown flax seed,

th chamber has agreed topay the state
