Several more papers severely attack the American inquiry. The Standard says Senator Smith "is rather less qualified for such a task than any individual picked up in an American street car." 

The Morning Post says: "a schoolboy would blush at Senator Smith's ignorance," and adds, "Honest Americans will feel with shame that not merely the White Star company but American civilization is on trial."
