T RESIDENT WILSON has
her ambassador to the
itcrCermg in the internal relations of the nation hy con
)iring to cripple legitimate industries, "a flagrant viola
tion of diplomatic propriety."
Dr. Dumba served notice upon all Austrians employed
in factories making supplies for the allies that if they did
not quit work they would be guilty of treason and. subject
ot twenty years' imprisonment or hanging. In other words
the Austrian government, through its envoy, attempts to
supercede the United States
domestic affairs, declaring
country should be ruled by
the seas instead of tho American law.
Austria furnished money
corruption of labor leaders,
.tltcmpls to supercede American law in America by Aus
trian law, because the United States has followed historic
precedent and permitted the shipment of supplies o bel
ligerents regardless of nationality.
Not Dr. Dumba, but Austria, is to blame if the envov
was merely carrying out instructions of bin g""nimenf.
as ho asserts. IIis recall mav
by making him the ''goat" and prevnif ;i veiious breach
between the nations, but it docs not evusco) pn Ilia to Aus
But Dr. Dumba's admitted activities nn not a bit more
reasonable than the actions of the Ocmum embassy in in
terfering in the domestic relations of the United States by
conducting an extensive pro-German propaganda in en
deavoring to influence by corruption public opinion, in as
sailing the American government, in destroying munition
factories, financing strikes, crippling industry, creating
discord and fomenting disloyalty among naturalized Amer
icans. The only difference is that, while all trails lead to
tho Gorman embassy, Bernsdorff has not yet been ''caught
with the goods" as was Dumba.
The war-mad monavchs of Europe seem to think their
divine right to rule extends over the world and that Amer
ican citizens arc their serfs and the United States a vassal.
Otherwise they would not attempt to dictate the policy
l i r i
ucsireu in a lorcign nniion.
The actions of both Austria and Germany constitute an
invasion of American rights and an insult to the nation.
"Germany over all" docs not yet include the United Stales
FREEDOM OF THE
AMONG the peace proposals offered by Germany is the.
An Intornntlonnl agrcomont on tho freedom of tho scnB guaranteeing
prlvato property at soa immuno from attack by naval forces.
Freedom of the sea sounds fine, but freedom of the land
is a great deal more important.
Only comparatively few live on the sea, while hundreds
of millions inhabit the land. The freedom of the hundreds
of millions to the land they utilize is of far more concern
to humanity than tho freedom of the sea.
It would be a fine thing
ucrmanv to have tho world guarantee its freedom on the
sea while it overran the land with its armies the ships of
its private citizens maintaining its commerce and feed
When tho land is free from invasion by the conqueror,
when it becomes impossible to seize and dismember a Pol
and, to grab and tyrannize a Finland, to devastato and an
nox a Belgium, to invade and destioy a Transvaal republic,
it will bo timo to talk freedom of tho sea.
But evan freedom from invading tyranny docs not
spell freedom of the land. The land of Hungary, of Galicia,
of many other European countries is in the hands of an in
finilosmal portion of tho population owned by tho crown
or a worthless parasite nobility, liven in our own country
land monopoly and the withdrawal of land from use is one
of Jjic fundamental causes of tho povertv of the masses.
