President Wilson.” tbe editorial da
clared, and'the Bn rente pees* will

as a reason for wur would provs
that America is wilfully seeking
eucb an occasion.
“It was Unnecessary that the
Healdton traverse tbe blockade area.

open way used by Holland American
steamers.'*
Reports received in the United
Pistes indicate that the Healdton

they could not pas* them. Nothing
