PRESIDENT MAY ASK
FOR WIDER POWERS
Possibility of Sudden Emer
gency Leads to Need for
OVERT ACT EVER FEARED
Mr. 'Wilson May Request Broad Res
olution, Empowering Illm to Act
Snort of War Situation Wltli
Germany's Allies Better,
WASHINGTON. Feb. 17. The advis
ability or going before Congress before
the end of the present session March 4
to make certain that ne be clothed with
sufficient power to protect American
lives and property from German sub
marine activities was dlBcussed by
President Wilson today with members
of the Senate whom he called Into con
ference during: a brief visit to the
- Afterwards It was Indicated that the
President had not made up his mind
on the question, but had such a step
under consideration because of the pos
sibility that after adjournment some
sudden emergency might arise necessitating-
action before Congress could, be
called together agalni
Fnrtker Power May Be Given.
The suggestion was made that Con
gress might be asked to adopt a broad
resolution authorizing the President to
take any necessary measures for the
protection of American rights and
avoiding specific, stipulations as to how
the protection should be afforded. 11
was Indicated that Mr. Wilson remained
as anxious as ever to avoid war and
that he gave no suggestion that a dec
laration of war, which Congress alone
can make, is even considered by him at
present in connection with the possi
bility of a request for additional au
thority. The general feeling here had been
that Germany's submarine campaign
sooner or later will lead Inevitably to
such a violation of American rights as
will require the further action forecast
by the President in his address to Con
gress two weeks ago. The President
is understood to feel, however, that
when the time comes the solution out
lined in that address should be fol
lowed out literally, and the steps taken
should constitute an extension of fur
ther protection to American Interests
rather than a declaration of war.
Submarine Issue la Uppermost.
urnciais were much gratified at a
message from Berne today saying the
American consuls remaining in Ger
many, for whom some concern had been
felt, would depart early next week, but
there was no evidence that the devel
opment would lessen to an apprecia
ble degree the tension between the two
countries. It has been pointed out that
the overshadowing issue is the Geiman
submarine campaign and that any oth
er controversy must be considered as
of minor consequence.
There also was much gratification
here over a report frorm Ambassador
Elkus at Constantinople saying that
Turkey was arranging to facilitate the
departure of the several hundred' Amer
ican refugees at Beirut. Officials re
garded the news as an Indication that
the Ottoman government was disposed
. not to break with the United States if
it could be avoided. There were no de
velopments during the day In the sit
uation with Austria, but some officials
now are hopeful that the break with
Germany will not be extended to any
of her allies.
Holding: of Vessels Serious.
President Wilson's visit to the Cap
itol is understood to have been pri
marily for the purpose of discussing
with Senators the legislative pro
gramme and to urge passage of vari
ous Administration bills during the re
maining two weeks of the session. With
most of the Senators seen he did not
talk of the foreign situation and the
impression gained ground among- some
or tnem that he did not consider the
the Americans at Beirut. It said the
two American relief ships Caesar and
Des Moines, which have been lying at
Alexandria for a long time, would have
an opportunity to proceed at once to
Syria and not only distribute their
food supplies, but bear away the Ameri
To facilitate the relief work the
Turkish authorities also have volun
tarily reduced the period which has
been prescribed as the length of quar
antine for outgoing Americans.
Some consideration will be" given to
the subject, however, before orders are
dispatched to the Caesar and Des
Moines to proceed to Syrian ports. It
is not entirely clear here how the ships
would fare in the blockaded zone, which

afternoon. It is expected that a large
number of American residents In Ger
many will arrive with them.
The American Cons lis were left be

was unable to communicate with theru

NEW YORK, Feb. 17. Six steamships
called from here for European ports
today. Including the big Holland-Amer
ica liner Noordam. None of. them, as
far as could be learned, carried passen
gers. The British steamship Verdi
started for Liverpool, but turned back
and anchored off quarantine after pro
ceeding as far as Sandy Hook. No ex
planation was forthcoming as to the
reason for the Verdi's return.
Besides the Noordam the vessels that
put to sea today with freight cargoes
were the British steamer Roman Prince,
the Dutch steamer Texel, the Spanish
steamers Mar Negro and -Mouro, and
the Swedish steamer Pelslnghorg.
It was announced that the Noordam.

but whether any of the other vessels
would follow the same course could
not be ascertained. -

Just before going to the Capitol the

said they probably would leave for

CUT THIS OUT
OLD KXGLISFI RECIPE FOR CA
TARRH. CATARRHAL DEAFAESS
AND HEAD KOISES.
Tf you know someone who Is troubled
with head noises, or Catarrhal Deaf
ness, cut out this formula and hand it
to them and you may have been the
means of saving some poor sufferer
Derhans from total deafness. We be
lieve that Catarrh, Catarrhal Deafness,
head noises, etc., are caused by consti
tutional disease, and that salves,
sprays. Inhalers, etc, merely temporize
with the complaint and seldom. If ever,
effect a permanent cure. This being
so. much time has been spent In per
fectine: a pure, gentle, yet effective
tonic that should quickly dispel all
traces of the catarrhal poison from the
svstem. The effective prescription
which was eventually formulated is
below in an understandable form so
that anyone can use it in their own
home at little expense.
Secure from your druggist 1 oz. Par-
mint (Double Strength), about 75c
worth. Take this home and add to it
"i Dint of hot water and 4 oz. of gran
ulated sugar; stir until dissolved. Take
one tablespoonful four times a day.
Tho first dose should begin to relieve
the distressing head noises, headache,
dullness, cloudv thinklner. etc. while
the hearing should rapidly return as
the system is invigoratea Dy tne tonic
action of the treatment. Loss of smell
and mucus dropping in the back of the
throat are other svmDtoms that show
the presence of catarrhal poison, and
which are often overcome by this ef
ficacious treatment. If nearly 90 per
cent of all ear troubles are directly
caused by catarrh, there must be many
people whose hearing may be restored
Dy tnis simple norae treatment.
Every person who is troubled with
head noises, catarrhal deafness, or ca

description a trial. Adv.
