"Since President Wilson declared

Inclosed in the letter was a copy of a
special sheet issued by the Siam Ob
server, giving1 an English translation
of the Siamese declnratlon of war.
The American Influence is marked,
for the rules and regulations promul
gated are similar to those in the United
States, and there are phrases that
have a decided American sound. Among
the rules are:
""An alien enemy shall not have In
his possession any firearm.
"An alien enemy shall not have or
use any aircraft or wireless apparatus.
"An alien enemy shall not approach
within one kilometer of any fort or
"Aliens are forbidden also to publish
attacks on the Siamese government, or
give 'information, aid or comfort to
its enemies; nor reside in prescribed
International Rlghta Ignored.
The proclamation recites that Siam
has watched the course of the Teutonic
powers and has found that the Central
powers are conducting war by methods
simulating contempt for all principles
of humanity and all respect for small
states, flagrantly disregarding interna
tional rights and agreements in so
many ways that it has become a war
against commerce, mankind and peace
of the world.
"Under such circumstances we can
only come to the conclusion that neu
trality is no longer feasible or desir
able where the peace of the world is
mvolved. and that it is the duty of
Siam, as one of the members of the
family of nations, to uphold the sanc
tity of international rights."
Mr. Steele and his family will leave
Siam within a few weeks for America,
after having completed the six-year
term for which he was sent to the
Par East. Mr. Steele is a son of Mr.
and Mrs. R. R. Steele, of Portland,
and is a graduate of the Portland
high school of 1902 and of the Uni
versity of Oregon in 1910.
