United States Again

^ Washington, March 14.—Am-
bassador Pugu at London, it wbh
learned today, bus cabled the
atate department aufficient infor­
mation concerning the forthcom­
ing reply to the American protest
on the British seizure of mailB to
indicate that the United States is
soon to face a serious crisis with
Great Britain.
The answer is understood to be
practically u Hat rejection of all
the American contentions and is
officially reported as being "un­

sons either of or suspected of be­
ing of German origin.
3 The validity of the English
blockade, which embraces her ex­
tension of the contraband list and
her "enemy origin” decree.
The underlying principle of the
American protest is that Great
Britain not only has violated in­
ternational law by her acts but
has also violated the plain letter
of The Hague convention.
Hepublicans are no longer di­
vided. Bull Moosers are as ex­
tinct as the dinosaurus. Stand­
patters and progressives alike are
unxious to meet each other half
way. The disaster they brought
upon themselves four years avo
has taught u bitter lesson, but
there will be no necessity to re­
peat it. Four years of Democracy
in the saddle bus been quite
enough to cement the Republican
factions and for u long time they
have been asking each other,
"What was it we quarreled
Yet one must not lose sight of
the fact that the same men who
split the Republican party wide

But why not Hughes? He is
the biggest man in the Republi­
can party today, if not in all par­
ties. His nomination, everyone
will agree, would be equivalent
to an election. Because a man
chooses to keep out of the mire
of politics preceding the national
conventions and refuses to permit
his friends to drag his name into
all the political primaries months
before the election, is that a
reason why the sovereign people
of this great nation should not
choose him to execute its laws?
