By EDWARD L. CONN.
The American Government undoubtedly has considered, though
no announcement of it has been made public, the peril American ship
pers may be running, without hope of compensation in the event of
Mosses, by transporting their goods on English merchant ships.
Jt is possible that they are acting in association with a billigerent,
but their ignorance of that fact would not exempt their property from
the usual fate of enemy goods found on an enemy ship.
The German government, in its reply to the protest lodged by the
Unitd States against the establishment of a zone of war that would in
vade the high seas and thus jeopardize the shipping of neutral coun
tries, asserted that "the British government has supplied arms to Brit
ish merchant ships and instructed them forcibly to resist German sub
marines, and that "in the case of a disguised British ship from which
.in attack may be expected the searching party and the submarines
would be exposed to destruction."
AS SHIPS OF FORCE.
Dispatches from both London and
Berlin make t plain that Great Britain
will use merchant vessels as instru
ments of war against the German sea
raiders, and It is declared that a prem
ium will be paid to the first English
merchant vessel that sinks on of the
Germans' undersea terrors. If Eng
land actually has embarked upon such
a course, then her merchant ships,
though uncommissioned, become in
fact public ships of force, their char
acter as carriers being subordinated to
that of men-of-war. The potential
membership of the crews of such ships
in the armed forces of their country
turns Into actual membership, and they
would be treated as crews of battle
ships, A belligerent is not permitted by the
rules of war to condemn neutral prop
erty, provided It Is not absolute con
traband, even on an enemy merchant
ship, but if such goods aro found on an
enemy ship of force they can be con
demned, and there Is no redress for
the neutral owner. There would be no
question If the neutral property wore
on a converted cruisor; it would be
the same as being on an ordinary bat
tleship. Th niirstinn arises in the instance of
uncommissioned merchant ships armed
defensively, and would be serious
enough in that case alone, for It is un
certain what the law In sucli a case
would be. But when a merchant vessel
is armed for offensive operations aa.
well, and Is Instructed to run down und
ram, open fire at and throw bombs upon
German submarines, in short to "hit a
snake wherever one is seen," and search
them out, as It were, then there is no
doubt as to their acting aggreslvcly, or
beyond what Is permitted by law, which
Is merely to resist, when assailed, in
order to prevent capture.
Class of Privateers.
The law is quite plain that neutrals
who shipped goods or lives on such ships
would be acting in association with a
hostile force, and might be considored
as enemies. It would be precisely the
same if they were to ship goods or lives
upon a hostile warship.

enemy ships would be virtually in the
class of privateers, which operated (or
two centuries before the end of the
Napoleonic era, and which, according to
the declaration of Paris of 1S66, are out

teering is and rv tains abolished." The
Hague convention of 1907 left open the
question of conversion of merchant ships
Into men of war, nor did the London

rulo regarding It.
The United States 8uprome Court up
holds the right of a belligerent mer

right ends-there the merchant ship does
no possess tho. right to attack, to as
sume an offensive and warlike char
acter. Chief Justice Marshall, in tho
case of tho Nerelde, said:

of It; but this country cannot hold

limited to defense only.
Evidently American underwriters have
given little thought to this phase of the

PLANNED FOR 19IB
Exposition Just Closed Was
Sucoess, But Dealers Look
for Even Broader Resutls.
A more elaborate food exposition for
next year is already being planned by
dealers at Center Market, the one which
closed there Saturday night hoving
been most successful.
As the exposition was the first of Its
kind ever given at Center Market, It
was largely of an experimental nature,
and many merchants ore of tho opinion
that a second ono would command
wider recognition both from manufac
turers and the general public.
The crowd on the last night was not
as large as that f Friday or Wednes
day nights, but It was a "buying"
crowd, and hundreds of the visitors
carried away well-filled baskets. The
principal object of the exposition, how
ever, was not to- bring a large busi
ness during the progress of the show,
but to familiarise the Washington pub
lic with the purchasing power of a
dollar spent at the Center Market.
Most of the exhibitors aro of the opin
ion that the new customers thus gain
ed ore a very considerable number.
Two principal attractions during the
exposition were the ten concerts by
the Marine Band, the last of which
was given last night, and the elaborate
decorations, which cost more than $2,000.

BIGGER FOOD SHOW
By WILLIAM G. SHEPHERD.
LONDON, Feb. 2 1 .Here is the story of the toughest job that came
to the chaplain of oie of the crack Irish regiments now almost anni
hilated by the fighting in France. He told it to me himself in the hos
pital where he is recovering from an attack of nerves brought on by
"I had to spend the night with a man who was to be executed in
the morning," he said. "I can never foregt it. I cannot sleep without
thinking about it. And I don't believe that any man of that fellow's
regiment will forget that night, either.
KILLED FOR TRYING TO DESERT.
"He was killed for trying to desert.
He was not a bad man. But something
went wrong with his nerves. The ter
rible part of It was that nobody blamed
him. The soldiers at the front under
stood tbeso breakdowns better than do
doctors. He was one of the favorites of
the regiment. But he had run away
under fire, In front of the entire regi
ment, and thero was only one thing to
do under tho circumstances.
"The awful part of It all to me was
that he wouldn't believe that he was to
bo executed. An execution under such
circumstances Isn't a punishment, ex
actly. It's more an example to the
other men, and everybody is kind to the
man that Is to die. Their sympathies are.
Wouldn't Believe Chaplain.
"They had held tho court-martial dur
ing the day. Is tho evening at 11 o'clock
they sent me to tell the prisoner that ho
must get ready to die at 7 the next
"The soldier wouldn't believe it I
told him over and over that there was
no hope for him. But he always would
answer: 'Why, tho men are all my
friends. There isn't a one of them who
would shoot me. They've all had nerves
like I had. and they'll understand. And,
DesiaeH, tun colonel is my pest menu.
Ho'b been like a father to mc, and he
wouldn't let anybody execute me. It's
"It wasn't until 4 o'clock In the mora
ine that ho understood it was all in
earnest and that he had to die. And,
even then, I think, he believed the whole
thing was a ghastly joke.
"If he had only committed some awful
crime! If the execution was only to be
a punishment and not an example! If
ho had only been wicked instead of
weak! But. in tho army, weakness is
the crime of all crimes!
"Six of his mates were told off the
next morning und ordered to turn their
rifles over to a superior officer. A Tew
minutes later the rifles were returned
to them. Home had been loaded with
bullets, some with blanks, but no man
knew what his rifle contained, and he
did not want to know.
"It w-os all done In a hurry. The con
demned man was brought out blind
folded. Suddenly the men leading him
sprang aside, and the six rifles rang
out without ceremony, and the young
soldier was dead. It had all bee done
with kindness and as quickly as pos
sible. Reported Killed in Action.
"The members of the firing squad re
turned their rifles to the officers with
out opening them, und got them back
an hour later cleaned. No one knew,
who was the slayer.

that this man was reported killed In
action. To his family he Is a hero, and

"The aeroplane raids in Europe," says
Mr. Woodhouse, "in which as many as
forty aeroplanes were employed, brings
added emphasis to the necessity of the
Senate's careful consideration of tho
matter of Increasing the army and
navy appropriations for aeronautics.
The army and navy together have only
one dozen aeroplanes In good condition
and will not have the means of replac
ing wornout and damaged aeroplanes
until next July.
"The Panama canal, the Philippine
Islands, and Hawaii have no aerial pro
tection; the big guns at Corregidor have
no 'aerial eyes.' The army has a single
flying boat for coat defenses, and a
single aeronautical center. The bulk of
officers of the United States army have
never seen an aeroplane, nor have the
rank and file; no provision has been
made to give aerial observers to the
artillery, nor has the artillery been
given an opportunity to practice with
the co-operation of the air service."
