S lieve that we wished to fight the world
Just lor the fun of it? No, the Emper

lie to that impossible conception. Rus
i Bia fought us because we are the out

post of the east in Europe just as you

"Russia supported her Slav brothers

port our German brothers in Austria.
, Race against race, people against peo
;ple, Occident against Orient, civiliza
tion against semi-barbarism such
things have always been, in history,
perhaps always will be. But when
the West, when England and France
attacked us In the rear oh, the day
may soon come when they regret that!
British Charged With Jealousy.
"We were forging ahead of England
in all the arts and sciences of peace,
co in our difficulty she determined to"
he hesitated, then chose his words
carefully "she determined to try to
destroy our sea-borne commerce with
. her navy. She couldn't beat our mer
, chants with her own, therefore she
hopes to beat our merchants with her
, dreadnoughts. Ah, well," he said, "it
was her only chance. English busi
ness men work six hours a day of five
or even four days a week three-day
week-ends have become quite the cus
tom over there now and German
. business men work nine hours a day
: six days a week. Is it any wonder
: she finds she needs to subsidize her
- commerce with 13.5-inch shells?
"We dared to share them with her
' and so she has attacked us in our dif-
ficulty Just as she took advantage ot
your Civil War to fit out Confederate
privateers and .sweep your ocean com-
merce from the seas."
"War Is Business With England."
"So you think the underlying rea
. sons for England's entering the fight is
economic?" I inquired.
' "Certainly," he answered, with great
' positiveness. "It is strictly a business
- proposition with England. It is a busi
ness war, pure and simple, like all of
r "Then you do not believe it was to
' protect the neutrality of a weaker
country, Belgium, to defend her
against a powerful aggressor, as the
English papers assert?"
t "Oh, that that," he said, "is. in your
expression, simply monumental. Since
when have the English themselves re
spected the neutrality of smaller na
tions? Since their South African ad
venture? All other nations in the
world put together have not violated
the neutrality of weaker countries one
half as much as England has. Her ex
isting empire of 11,000,000 square miles
is evidence enough of that. She went
into the Transvaal and Orange Free
State because her financiers wanted the
diamond mines there. We went into
Belgium as a matter of military neces
sity in a fight for our lives."
Belgian Invasion Defended.
"May I Interject," I asked, "that the
German invasion of Belgium was not
particularly popular in the United
"I know It," he answered, "and I am
sorry. It was not particularly popu
lar here, either. But self-preservation
is the first law. You know, for in
stance, that mobilization means war
and why "
"Why?" I asked.
"Because it's like winding up a great
pring that must unwind. Germany can
mobilize in a week, France in a fort
night. Russia in four or six weeks. If,
after we mobilized, we waited while
the diplomats talked and the other
countries were using that time to mob
ilize against us, we would lose our ad
vantage, and we can afford to lose no
advantage in a war at two frontiers,
with England on the sea; yet we waited
five days after we knew Russia had
begun its mobilization before we began
ours; five days we were risking our
safety in the hope of peace. Then when
we saw war with Russia must come
we demanded categorically from
France an answer as to whether she
would observe neutrality and received
their answer from our Ambassador
August 1 at 1:05 P. M. I quote the of
ficial document: 'Upon my repeated
definite inquiry whether France would
remain neutral in the event of a Russo
German war the Prime Minister de
clared France would do that which her
Quick Blow Aimed at Prance.
"In the language of diplomacy, and
considering France's alliance with Rus
sia, that could have but one meaning,
and so we knew we must strike as hard
and as quickly as possible at France.
The way in which we could strike
France hardest and quickest was
through Belgium, and hence we took
that way. If Belgium had permitted
us free passage we would have paid
cash for every mouthful and left Its
territory intact. But Belgium chose
to appeal to the god of battles and
must abide by the result. With Rus
sia on one side and France on the other
.and England on the oceans, what else
could we do but strike as hard and as
quickly as we could?
"But" I reverted to the horror of
it all "all this for the murder of a
royal couple in Austria? Why must
millions die for them now? They are
already dead and cannot return to
"Suppose," said he, "that the Mexi
cans had been conducting an anti
American campaign along your south
ern boundary for 30 years with the ob
ject of detaching Arizona and New Mex
ico from the .United States and return
ing them to Mexico; suppose this propa
ganda was connected with the open
connivance of the Mexican government
and press and with the active assist
ance of Mexican army officers.
American Allegory Cited.
, Suppose then, that the next highest
official In your country, a man who cor
responded to a combination of Vice-
President, Secretary of State and Gen
eral in the Army, were sent to the
troubled region on a political mission
.to report on what steps should be taken
to quell this propaganda, and suppose
further that he was there assassinated
with his wife by a Mexican with bombs
manufactured in a Mexican government
arsenal and furnished him by Mexican
u'uciais ana army officers, and sup
pose, as I have said, this was not an
outrage but the culmination of 30 years
of anti-American attack, then would
the American people consider a punitive
expeaiuon against Mexico unreason
"I- rather think not. They would In
sist on It. The arrest of six American
marines resulted in your capture of
vera Cruz, did it not? The blowing up
of the Maine, by causes yet unknown,
in the taking of Cuba, Porto Rico and
the Philippines? Tet Austria did not
wish to take any of Servia. It officially
agreed not to do so... It wanted only a
cessation of this pan-Servian propa
ganda of the bomb. If it did not in
sist on that it must abdicate its very
sovereignty in its own territory."
Slav Domination Feared.
"We Germans at last have learned
this, and never again will forget it
that, situated as we are in the middle
of Europe, we must stand firmly to
gether. If we let Austria-Hungary be
crushed or weakened, by so much is our
own strength enfeebled. Our support
of Austria-Hungary is but enlightened
self-interest, necessary to Germanic
"What is the difference between Slav
and Teuton? How would the world
suffer if the Slav did press westward?"
"I suppose," he smiled again, "it is
natural for us Germans to con
sider first how we ourselves would
suffer if the Slav pressed westward
into Germany. How the world would
suffer by our extinction? That is a
question rather for the philosopher
than the politician. Politicians and
people generally object to their own
extinction, and if they don't object
strenuously enough they are not fit to
live and do not live as a sovereign peo
ple. But to answer your question: The
Slav civilization Is lower, more brutal,
more primitive and, less complex than
ours In Germany or yours in America.
The individual Slav is less an individual
than the individual Teuton. He is more
of an undifferentiated specimen of a
great agglomerate mass. He is one of
a herd, a single insect in a swarm.
Japanese Aims . Considered.
Of course, this is true of all of us,
in a measure, but it is truer of Orient
als than of Westerners, and never for
get the Slav is always a semi-Oriental
Perhaps the Japanese have really a
finer civilization than you. Personally
I do not think so, but perhaps time
will say they have. However, be that
as it may, you in America would re
sist fiercely a Japanese attempt to
supplant your civilization with theirs.
So have we and do we and will we
resent the attempt to supplant In any
territory now held by Germans our
civilization by that of the Slavs.
"You think we are next on the list?"
I asked "The Philippines?"
"How long do you think Japan would
hold her hand from you," he answer
ed my question with another, "if you
found yourself in a. war against three
great and two little powers? Yes,
England, sowed dragons teeth," he
said, "dragons' teeth for the white
skins 'Asia for the Asiatics' is writ
ten on the hearts of all the Japanese."
British Diplomacy Called Subtle.
Reverting to the English, he ex
claimed: "You in America are accus
tomed to think of the English as a bluff.
hearty, downright, unsubtle race, fond
of sport and the open air. Well, all I
can say to that is that t.hey are cer
tainly fond of sport and the open air.
There has never been a race of diplo
mats their equals in shrewdness, sub
tlety and a sleepless eye on the main
chance since time began."
"Well, then, there is no disguising
the fact that for a time at least, prior
to the growth of the Japanese question
in your country, you considered us
shall we say your chief political ri
vals? Now you have shifted that feel
ing to the Japanese, and all this time
you have considered England your first
I said: "She made herself so."
"Precisely my point. She made her
self so; she began to talk of your
cousinship with a degree of warmth in
direct ratio to your degree of strength.
Because she has the only thing in the
world you really need to round out your
"You mean Canada?"
Friendship Part of Policy.
"I mean Canada. Of course I real
ize It is inconceivable you will ever, or
at least soon, attempt to take it. But
why? Because Great Britain has real
ized so cleverly that the only possible
way in which she can defend it is by
making you her friend and putting you
"Whoever her first rival has been she
has combined- Europe against him. She
fought you when you .were weak, she
lent her aid to the effort to split your
republic in the Civil War, and now that
you are strong and her dominions are
yours for the taking she is your best
friend. She sets Japan on us and uses
Japan to guard India.
"The English take credit to them
selves for many excellent qualities, but
of that quality in which they are su
premely pre-eminent, diplomacy, ' they
make little mention. They believe the
seas belong to them by divine right and
most of the yellow, black and brown
races for exploitation. However, we
shall conquer this unholy alliance
against us," he concluded, "for Germany
is one in its determination to live."
"If you are shut from the seas," I
asked, "how long can- you subsist on
Subsistence Carefully Considered.
. "Until the next harvest is in," he
answered. "That has all been gone
into carefully. Our enemies who have
deluded themselves into the hope we
shall starve will be disappointed in
that as In other things. W shall lack
somewhat In tea, coffee, cocoa, and
other tropical prodifcts, but of bread,
meat, potatoes, and sugar we have
ample on hand till the next harvest.
We would like some of your cotton,
though, and copper. But we have
plenty of hides and leather, coal, iron,
petroleum, lumber, and chemicals."
"How will you finance the war?"
"Within ourselves, by war taxes and
internal laws. For instance, we have
never had an inheritance tax. Now
we shalL Likewise heavier excise du
ties on beer and tobacco."
"You will make no external loans,
borrow no money from abroad?"
"As to a war indemnity from
France, if you occupy Paris?"
"France chose to appeal to the god
of battles," he answered. "We asked
her to stay out, she chose war, and
now she shall have it with all its con
sequences." 34 ON LOST SUBMARINE

WASHINGTON. Sent. 20 How Amer
lean officials shall deal with armed
vessels visiting ports of the United
States and merchant ships suspected of
carrying supplies to belligerent war
ships off the coast, was set forth in
memorandum Issued tonight bv the
State Department, with the approval of
tne president. Sir Cecil Spring-Rice.
the British Ambassador, has had many
conferences at the department concern
ing neutrality questions but it was
made plain by officials that tonight's
action was not the result of any agree'
ment on the subject.
The memorandum follows:
A A merchant vessel of a belligerent na
tionality may carry an armament and &i
munition for the sole purpose of defence.
without acquiring the character of a ship
Owner Given Chances to Prove.
B The presence of an armament and am
munition on board a merchant vessel creates
a presumption that the armament Is for
offensive purposes, but the owners or agents
may overcome this presumption by evidence
showing that the vessel carries armament
solely for defence.
C Evidence necessary to establish the
fact that the armament is solely for defence
and will not be used offensively, whether
the armament be mounted or stowed below,
must be presented in each case Independent
ly at an official investigation. The result of
tne investigation must show conclusively
that the armament is not intended for and
will not be used in offensive operations.
Indications that the armament will not be
used offensively are:
1. That the caliber of the runs carried
does not exceed six Inches.
2. That the gun. and small arms carried
are few In number.
3. That no guns are mounted on the for
ward part of the vessel.
4. That the .quantity of ammunition ' car
ried is small.
5. That the vessel is manned by its usual
crew and the officers are the same as those
on board before war was declared.
6. That the vessel intends to and ac
tually does clear for a port lying in its usual
trade route, or a port indicating its purpose
to continue in the same trade in which it
was engaged before war was declared.
Fuel Actually Needed Allowed.
7. That the vessel takes on board fuel
and supplies sufficient only to carry it to
Its port of destination or the same Quantity
substantially which it has been accustomed
to take for a voyage before war was de
clared. 8. That the cargo of the vessel consists
of articles of commerce unsulted for the use
of a ship ot war in operations against an
9. That the vessel carries passengers who
are, as a whole, unfitted to enter the mili
tary or naval service of the belligerent
whose flag the vessel flies or of any of its
allies and particularly if the passenger list
includes women and children.
10. That the speed of the ship is slow.
D Port authorities, on the arrival in a
port of the United States of an armed ves
sel of belligerent nationality, claiming to be
inercnani vessel, snouia Immediately In
vestigate and report to Washington on the
foregoing indications as to the intended use
of the armament in order that it may be
determined whether the evidence is suf
ficient to remove the presumption that the
vessel is and should be treated as a ship of
war. Clearance will not be granted until
authorized from Washington and the mas
ter will he so informed upon arrival.
E The conversion of a merchant vessel
into a ship of war is a question of fact,
which is to be established by direct or cir
cumstantial evidence of Intention to use the
vessel as a ship of war.
Suspicious Acts Enumerated.
Merchant vessels suspected of carrying
supplies to belligerent warships:
1. A base of operations for belligerent
warships is presumed when fuel or other
supplies are furnished at an American port
to such warships more than once within
three months since the war began and dur
ing the period of the war, either directly or
by means of merchant vessels of belligerent
or neutral nationality acting as a tender.
2. A common rumor or suspicion that a
merchant vessel laden with fuel or other
naval supplies intends to deliver its cargo
to a belligerent warship on the high seas
when unsupported by direct or circum
stantial evidence, imposes no duty on a neu
tral government to detain such merchant
vessel even for the purpose of investigat
ing the rumor or suspicion unless it is
known that the. vessel has been previously
engaged In furnishing supplies to a belliger
3. Circumstantial evidence supporting a
rumor or suspicion that a merchant vessel
Intends to furnish a belligerent warship
with fuel or other supplies on the high
seas, is sufficient to warrant detention of
the vessel, until its intention can be in
vestigated, in the following cases:
A. When a belligerent warship is known
to be off the port at which the merchant
vessel is taking on cargo suited for naval
supplies, or when there is a strong presump
tion that the warship Is off the port.
B. When the merchant vessel is of the
nationality of the belligerent whose war
ship is known to be on the coast.
Certain Coal Purchases Included.
C. When a merchant vessel which has,
on a previous voyage between ports of the
United States " and ports of other neutral
states, failed to have on board at the port
of arrival a cargo consisting of naval sup
piles shipped at the port of departure, seeks
to take on board a similar cargo.
E. When coal or other supplies are pur
chased by an agent of a belligerent gov
ernment and shipped on board a merchant
vessel, which does not clear for a port of
the belligerent but for a neighboring neu
E. When an agent ot a belligerent is
taken on board a merchant vessel having
a cargo of fuel or other supplies and clear
ing for a neighboring neutral port.
4. The fact that the merchant vessel,
which is laden with fuel or other naval
supplies, seeks clearance under strong sus
picion that it is the intention to fi.rnt.h
such fuel or supplies to a belligerent war-
snip is not sunriclent ground to warrant its
detention, if the case is isolated and neither
the vessel nor the warship for which the
supplies are presumably Intended has pre
viously taken on board similar supplies since
the war began or within three months dur
ing the period of the war.
The essential idea of neutral terri
tory becoming the basis of naval operations
by a belligerent power is repeated departure
from such territory by a naval tender of the
belligerent or by a merchant vessel in bel
ligerent service which is laden with fuel or
other naval supplies.
6. A merchant vessel, laden with naval
supplies, clearing from a port of the United
States for the port of another neutral na
tion, which arrives at its destination and
there discharges its cirgo. should not be de
tained, if, on a second voyage it takes on
board another cargo of similar nature.
Naval Base Is Defined.
"In such a case the port of the other neu
tral nation may be a base for the naval
operations of a belligerent. If so, and even
if the fact is not obvious, this government
Is under no obligations to prevent the ship
ment of naval supplies to that port. Com
merce in munitions of war between neutral
nations cannot, as a rule, be a basis for a
claim of unneutral conduct, even though
there is a strong .presumption of actual
knowledge that the neutral state, in whose
port the supplies are discharged, is per
mitting its territory to be used as a base of
supply for belligerent warships. - The duty
ot preventing an unneutral act rests entirely
unon the neutral state whose territory is
being used as such a base.
"In fact, this principle goes further in
that if the supplies were shipped directly
to an established naval base in the ter
ritory nnder the control of a belligerent,
this government would not be obligated by
its neutral duty to limit such shipments or
detain or otherwise Interfere with the mer
chant vessels engaged in that trade.

Mrs. Stubbs puts emphasis on the
