shows with horrible clearness to
what jeopardizing of human lives
the manner of conducting war
employed by our adversaries leads.
In the most direct contradiction
of all International law, all distinc­
tion between merchantmen and
war vessels have been obliterated
by the order to British merchant­
men to arm themselves and to
ram submarines and the promise
of rewards therefor, and neutrals,
who use merchantmen as travel­
ers, thereby, have been exposed
by an increasing degree to all ihe
dangers o f war.
“ I f the commander of the Ger­
man submarine which destroyed
the Lusitania had caused the crew
and passengers to take to the
boats before firing a torpedo this
would have meant the sure de­
struction of his own vessel. A fter
the experiences in sinking much
smaller and less sea-worthy ves­
sels, it was to be expected that a
mighty ship like the Lusitania
would remain above water long
enough after torpedoing to permit
passengers to enter the ships

peculiar kind, especially the pres­
ence on board o f large quantities

this expectation.
In addition it may be pointed
out that if the Lusitania had been
spared thousands o f cases of
munitions would have been sent
to German’s enemies and there­

pear to be no compelling necess­
ity for American citizens to
travel to Europe in time o f war
on ships carrying an enemy Hag.
In particular the imperial govern­
ment is unable to admit that
American citizens can protect an
enemy ship through the mere
fact o f tlieir presence on board.

These event« were quickly followed
by an affirmation on the part o f Italy
of her neutrality, by an Austrlun In­
vasion of Hcrvtn and by the sending
by Japan of au ultimatum to Germany.
This had to do with the German poa-

cidents suffered by neutrals on
enemy ships in this area of war
cannot well be judged differently
from accidents to which neutrals
are at all times exposed at the
seat o f war on land when the}
betake themselves into danger­
ous localities in spite o f previous
warnings. If. however, it should
not be possible for the American
government to require an ade­
quate number of neutral passen­
ger ships, the imperial govern­
ment is prepared to interpose r.o
objections to the placing under
the American flag by the Am er­
ican government o f four enemy
passenger steamers for passenger
traffic between North America
a n d England. Assurances o f
‘free and safe’ passage for Am er­
ican passenger steamers would
extend to apply under the identi-
fical pro-conditions to these for­
merly hostile passenger ships.

About 1,000 clerks und city curriers
In New York were affected by the an­
nouncement o f the postoHice depart­

for the regular automatic promotion«.
" I t so happened," says the depart­
ment. “ thut Mr. Roller's bureau during
the past year succeeded in conserving
our $130,000,000 appropriations bo that
a considerable sum remained unexpend­

saving represents in part clerical and
