London Papers Attack Smith

Chicago Tribune

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."

London, April 26, 3 a.m.
