economic treatment is protection. That will stem7 the tide of Bol

That is the situation in a nutshell.
Protection will do the trick.
Nothing else will. a
That is what started this nation on its road to greatness. The

cally. But in plain English. Great
Britain has resorted to the policy or
Protection and nothing else. Why
not say so?
How lasting it will be, it Is Impos
sible to tell. But It is significant
that, in the midst of Mr. Wilson's
plea for greater freedom of trade
and no economic barriers. Great
Britain should resort to the policy
of Protection "to Protect "her mar
kets from American competition."
It only goes to show that even Free-
Trade Great Britain is shifting to a
Protection policy.
In this connection it is said that
Great Biltain has resorted to this
measure, to meet the shipping com
petition of 'the United States, and
Protect her own shipping engaged in
the foreign carrying trade. If so,
history Is repeating itself; for way
back in colonial days, England pro
hibited expoits into her domains
from tbe American Colonies, in
American ships, thus driving Ameri
can ships from the ocean and demor
alizing trade between the Colonies
and England. What did the Colonies
dp? They got together, imposed im
posts or import duties, authorized
Congress to collect them, and later
placed an extra import duty of ten
per cent, on all foreign goods not
imported in American ships. Amer
lean shipping revived and American
commerce was almost immediately
Why not do this same thing now?
Also, the going of President Wilson to France is not only uncon
stitutional but it is also unprecedented. But the Constitution can
stand the strain, as it has stood many others for the good of the
country; and the breaking of precedent will be gloriously excused
and overlooked, in the course of time, if the work of the peace con
gress comes out as well as in the nature of things it should, and as
pre&ent prospects promise. .

Even while Mr. Wilson at the Peace

of "New Freedom" and economic
equality of trade, Great Britain has
placed a ban upon many imports in
to her domains from other countries,
including the United States.

ducers of some two or three hundred
articles must secure a British Import
license in order to 'ship these goods
Into any part of Great Britain.
The United States War Trade
Board put forth this explanation:
"The reasons for such action
on the part of Great Britain are
not hard to understand, nor do
s they require anything in the na-
ture of Justification. For over
! four years. Great Britain has
, been subject to the shock and
' strain of a war which not only
required the sacrifice of life and
intense human energy, but also
necessitated the most stringent
economic readjustment and the
sacrifice of private business.
"It Is not strange, therefore,
that Great Britain should today
wish to: make every legitimate
. effort to -keep her commercial
and economic status from fall
ing into chaos, and instead to
restore it to a state of equili
brium. In fact, to do anything
else would be strange.
"As a natural result of such
a normal, patriotic aspiration,
in order to bring her own manu
factures to a state of stability
approaching that of pre-war
days. Great Britain finds it nec
essary to impose such import re
strictions for the time being as
f will permit her the opportunity
to re-establish domestic business
j conditions on a normal basis.1
; The. import restrictions being
f imposed by Great Britain are
l for such purposes and are not
to be regarded as of a perman-"
enj, nature. In making for the
return of normal domestic con
ditions in Great Britain, includ
; ing the social welfare of tbe
Empire, such measures will tend
toward economic and social sta
bility throughout the associated
governments of that country.
And such a tendency is today,
recognized as vitally necessary
for the formation of a lasting
and fundamentally sound peace."
It is altogether amusing to note
how carefully the War Trade Board
avoids the use of the word "Protec
tion. It uses substitutes, such as
'to keep her commercial and eco
nomic status from falling Into cha
os," "to bring her (Great Britain's)
