United States would lose its
Mlfrpect and confess feebleness as
a nation If It did not protest vigor
ously against the hybrid doctrine
mUlch Great Britain nnd France pro
claim, that their right to frame re
taliatory measures against Germany
JtMtlflea them In preventing "commod
ities of any kind" from reaching or
loafing that country without formally
declaring n blockade. What the Al
lies propose Is not a blockade, al
though It In their nlm to secure the
advantages of one. It has been well
aaM that "while the object of the
right of a belligerent to Intercept

object of the belligerent right of rom a series of tragejl es

the rigors and erils of a blockade
the Allies niaki' all commodities sub

nation In the history of warfare hasj
ever done lefore. The United States.
in fact all the neutral nations, are '
expected lo acquiesce in thl revoln- I
tlonary procedure of the Allies. The !
neutral nations ought to have known
complacency was expected of them.
In the British note of February 10
Sir EDWAnD Gbky said :
"If hla Majesty's Ciovrrnment sliould
hereafter feel constrained to iltvlare

with German trade by way ot reprlaala,

The argument was that as neutrals,
who are Innocent bystanders, had
failed to persuade Germany to aban
don "submarine warfare" on British
commerce they must assent to any
reprisals adopted by Groat Britain,
although internatlonnl law governing
the rights of neutrals was to be thrown "M ln n,,i -"nrry. ine asso

clous jiroposa! ever made by a Brit- ""v," ,n Prattle competition and
lsh statesman? Two davs before sir lll!,t "nileavors to enforce the will of
Edwabd Obey brought It to the at- "s members on the Journalism of the
tentlon of the United States he ob-
serred that "the rules under which we
are at present eonductlng our belliger
ent operations give us no power In
the absence of n blockade to seize or
Interfere with cotton when on its way
to a belligerent country In neutral
Ships" The transfer of cotton to
the omnibus list now enncnlH any
obligation the United States was ex
pected to feel on account of the len
ity of Oreat Britain; nnd the disap
pearance of the cotton trade with
Germany would be a serious matter.

Commons stated that there had been
no rejection of the proposals of the
United States relative to arrange
ment with both Orent Britain nnd
Germany to do away with the "war
zone" declared by the latter In Brit
ish waters. It Is conceivable that
this nnmltig Anglo-French project
to shut the door on Germany Is In
the nature of duress to force that
country to suspend h.er "war on"
proclamation. A tenuous hope, yet
Hut no considerations, no specula
tions whatsoever must stay an early
and emphatic protest by the United
State against the hitherto unheard
of design of Groat nrltntn and France
to close the free seas to neutral com
merce with Germany.

The Chicago Opera Company was
in a measure nn offshoot of the Met
ropolitan Opera House In one of Its
moods of operatic expansion. Some
of the public eplrlted New Yorkers
who give tune and money In the effort
to secure the best operatic perform
ances for this city were concerned In
the formation of the troupe. This
year the performances were discon
tinued on account of the war. One
result of the company's bankruptcy
will be to escape the payment of lnrge
sums due singers who had already
begun suit or had made known their
Intention to attempt to recover the
money due them.
Nothing In all the career of the
Chicago Opera Company Is so sur
prising as the published list of sala
ries of certain artists. The amounts
they were to receive are out of all pro
portion to their reputations, hero or
abroad. Whether they were engaged
by Ignorant amateurs or designing
officials It Is Impossible to say. But
It Is true that the preposterous fat
salaries paid to certain singers must
have brought to bankruptcy any or
ganization. And all this happened at
a time when singers were eager to
come to this country and did not have
to he persuaded to accept five or six
times the salaries paid to them
So in such disasters as the failure
of the Chicago Opera Company there
is no blow to our national musical
taste. If our opera companies nre to
exist merely for the sake of provid
ing fabulous salaries for unknown or
little known singers, large compensa
tion nnd incidentals to conductors. Im
presarios, secretaries nnd the rest of
the crew that comes here to fatten on
the generosity of Americans, then a
company conducted on such a basis Is
to be admired. It Is one thing, how
ever, to Ih generous. It Is another to
lte so little discriminating ns to defer
to any such marvel of flnnnclnl Impo
sition as the salary list of the Chicago
Opera Company represented.

The "cruising ihnnsoms" on Fifth

danger to pedestrians than the
swiftest automobile. Their drivers
skirt the sidewalks leisurely, often ob

A Back Bay physician In Boston
urges men with hair at halt mast,
or with rlo hair at all, to Interest
themselves In music, because an "ex
pert statistician, after months of
labor, announces that only one of
every hundred devotees of music Is
hairless, while in every other profes
sion eleven In every' 1 are bald."
This must surely be. a mistake. An
inspection of any large, orchestra lb
ths city of New Tork will show a
greater proportion of bald men than
one ln a hundred. Everybody knows
Impressive rooking musicians who
have no more hair than a kettle
drum. The advice of the Boston phy
sician may be supplemented by the
hint to embrace muslo while youth
and hair linger: If Home people wait
a few years It will bo too late.
The latest alarm about the condi

It Never Can Be Lightened by Senti
To Tin: Editor ok Tiik sun Sir. I
have profound rcepect for a genuine
laborer, no matter what kind or work
ho doos. With so many millions ot u
on this pluiiet, and all of us dally In
need of bread and raiment and nheltor,
there Is endless work tn be done: nnd
most of It Is sure to bring weariness.
As a boy and young man I wan taught
motlly In Ihe school of bard work on a
farm In western Now York. My father
used to raise eoveral acres of potatoes,
and he depended on mo and my brothers
to tako most of the oaro of them, Fre
quently we planted them In newly
turned "green od," which had never
been under the plough. It was trying
labor for young hands to find earth
enough to cover the wed, H was hot.

drive a horse between the rows with a
shovel plough j It was back breaking
toll to bend over a row ot potatoes all
day long and pound sods among the
stalks with the hoe.
When tho hoclhg was done we began
haying. It was a weariness to the
bones for n young man of in or 1G to
drag a scythe through lodgod clover ln

And though I havo been supporting

with a kind of employment far less

Committeemen questioned Mr. WU.
cox, and he said that next year as well

about $1,100,000 for pensions, and proh
ably would be $.100,000 short ; If thai
amount again Is taken from the per
aniinent fund there will remain but
$200,000, and that the year after that
Ihe permanent pension fund would be
wiped out and there would be nothing
for the teachers now contributing 1 p

As a remedy for this situation M'
