"The government of the United

government of the tenth of April re
grets to state that tho impression made
noon it bv the statements and proposals
contained in that note is that he im
perial Government has failed to appreci
ate the gravity of the situation which
has resulted, not alone from the attack
on the Sussex, but from the whole meth
od and character of submarine warfare
as disclosed by the unrestricted prac
tice of the commanders of German un
dersea craft during the past 12 months
and more in the indiscriminate destruc
tion of merchant vessels of all sorts,
nationalities and descriptions. It th
sinking of the Sussex had been an iso
lated case the government might fine
it possible to hope that the officer who
was responsible for that act hud wilful
ly violated his orders or had been crim
inally negligent in taking none of the
precautious they prescribed, and that

by imposing upon him an adequate
punishment, coupled with a formal dis
avowal of the fact and payment of a
suitablo indemnity by the imperial
government. But though the attack
upon the Sussex was manifestly inde
fensible nnd caused a loss of life so
tragical as to make it stand forth ns oni
of the most terrible examples of the
inhumanity o'f submarine warfare ns
the commanders of Gorman vessels are
conducting it, it unhappily does no
'On the contrary, the government of

A meeting of the agricultural depart
ment of the Commercial club has been
called for Thursday evening, April 27,
to elect a director of the department, to
succeed W. 1. Slaley, who announces
that he will not be a candidate for re
election. The fans of the Commercial club feel
that Salem should have a baseball team
and in fact, several expressed them
selves to the extent of saying that a
town was a mighty dead one that could
not support a first class team. As they
did not want Suleiu to be put up in
litis class, at t lie meeting of the Com
mercial club last evening, the hat was
passed around to nssist in raising the
sum of $150 necessary for the rental of
the grounds nt the penitentiary. When
the tellers finished their counting, it
wis found that $110.40 had ben collected,
and if the spirit keep up, the necessary
$150 will soon be raised. At leist, that
is wh it a fan said.
For the first 15 days of April, the
parcel post business of the Salem post
office amounted to 0,724 percels re
ceived from other postof t'ices for deliv
ery, 1,500 from the local office, making
a total of 11.224 parcels received in 15
narceis rece.vea in i.,
liveied. 4,2:17 by citv
lavs. During the
the general deliv
iinckages were deliv
carrier, d.oOi by rural earners and 11
by special delivery, making n total of
8-741 packages delivered in the 15 days
without extra expense. Tuo total
number of parcel post packages han
dled during the 15 years was 10,7511, of
which KiO were insured.
The Salem Women's club is barred
through its constitution and bylaws
from taking any part in any movement
that looks like politics or religion. Con
sequently, the executive committee of
the club wishes it to be known that ns
an organization, they cannot officially
meet and entertain the noted eastern
snffragests who will soon come to Sa
lem, as that would look like taking part
in Politics. However, should any mem
ber of the club feel disposed to meet
or entertain Mrs.O.H.P.Belmoiit, or -Mrs.
Harriot St.iatoii Blntcli, or Mrs. Inez
Milhollnnd Uoissewtin, they are at li
berty to do so as individuals. But the
Salem Women's club, according to in
formation received from tho executive
committee will take no action as a club.
Arrangements are under way for the
improving of the camping grounds at
the state fair, according to the report
ot the civp-s department ot tne Com
mercial club. The report of a special
committee, through its chairman, Judge
William (iallowny, was to the extent
that it would be iiccessarv to raise $1100
in order to secure n care-taker for the!
grouuds nnd to get them in condition.
During the month of September, the
judge reported that the state fnir would
pay for the water and lights at the
grounds. The committee also proposes
to erect a building on the grounds for
general purposes, to be used by the
campers. It was finally decided that if

vessels: It based its protest on the
ground that persons of neutral national
ities and vessels of neutral ownership
would be exposed to extreme nnd intol
erable risks; nnd thui no right to close
nay part of the high seas could lawfully
be'usscrtcd by the imperial government
in the eircumstunces then existing. The
law of nations in these mutters upon
which the government of the United
States based that protest, is not of re
cent origin or founded upon merely ar
bitrary principles set up by convention.
It is based on the contrary upon mani
fest principles of humanity and has
long been established with the approval
and by the express as-sent of nil civil
"Tho imperial government, notwith
standing, persisted with carrying ' out
the policy announced, expressing tin
hope that the dangers involved nt any
rate to neutral vessels would be re
duced to minimum by the instructions
which it had issued to the commanders
of its -submarines, and assuring the gov
ernment of the United States that it
would take every possible precaution
both to respect the rights of neutrals
and to safeguard the lives of non-com-bntants.
"In pursuance of this policy of sub
marine warfare against the commerce of
its adversaries, thus announced and
thus entered upon in despite of the

ruthless destruction which have made
it more and move evident as the months
have gone by that the imperial govern
ment has found it impracticable to put
any such restraints upon them as it had
hoped and promised to put. Again and
again the imperial government has giv
en its solemn assurances to the gov
ernment of the United States that nt
lenst passenger and freight ships would
not be thus denlt with and vet it has
repeatedly permitted its undersea com-1
manders to disregard these assurances
with entire impunity. As recently as
February lust, it gave nottice that il j
would regard all armed merchant men j
owned by its enemies as part of the
armed naval forces of its adversaries i
and deal with them ns with men of war,
thus, at least, by implication, pledging'
itself to give warning to vessels which !
are unarmed and to accord security of i
life to their passengers and crews but j
even this limitation their submarine
commanders have recklessly ignored.

and summoned to surrender before be

their passengers and crews have been
vouchsafed the poor security of being
allowed to take to the ship's boats be

But again nnd again no warning has
been given, no escape, even to the ship's
