WHEN clthor Germany or England discusses iU obligation!
toward this neutral nation, neither seems able to leave the
other out of the argument.
In ono of hla latcet notos, the British Secretary for Foreign
Affairs pointedly remarks:
"Ilia Majesty's Government are not aware, except from the
published correspondence between the United States and Oer
, aany, to what extent reparation baa been claimed from Germany
by neutrals for loss of ships, lives and cargoes, nor how far
these acts bare been the subject even of protest by the neutral
"While these acta of the German Government continue it
ceems neither reasonable nor Just that His Majesty's Govern
I meat ahouM be pressed to abandon the rights claimed In the
British rots of the t3d."
Alongside Sir Edward Grey's declaration that it is
"Incumbent upon the allies to take every stop In their
, power to overcome) their common enemy, In view of the shock
teg viol st kin of the recognized rules and principles of civilised
bartare of which he has been guilty during the present
Bead Herr von Jngow's words in Germany's lntc "reply":
"It is known to the American Government how Germany's
adversaries, by completely paralyzing t raffle between Oermany
and neutral countries, have aimed from the very beginning, and
wfth Increasing lack of consideration, at the destruction, not
to much of the armed forces as the life of the German nation,
v repudiating In doing so all the rules of International law and
( disregarding alt rights of neutrals.
' "We have been obliged to adopt n submarine warfare to
neet the declared intentions of our enemies and the method of
warfare adopted by them In contravention of International lave."
,Wo are thus in the position of treating with two belligerents each
trf whom is Interfering with our neutral rights and rnch of whom
' points to tho methods of the othw as justifying his own infractions
of tho rules of international warfare. Moreover, each appears to hint
that If wo can make his opponent mend his wnys he may in turn
' ractify his own.
A delicnto position for Hils nntion. Yet our course is plain.
We have already sternly'doclined to not upon suggestions from
Germany that we do her a service by breaking up England's blockade.
' Can wo do otherwise than meet England's hints with an equally
,flrm statement albeit, couched in the same terms of reason and falr
mindednofs which make Sir Edward Grey's messages such a contrast
to those that have come from Berlin?
This Government has insisted, and wo hope it still Insists, that
we are contending primarily, not for

of all neutral nations. A fafq stand a stand that we believe1 should

The fact that I borrowed some money

Against this fomlnlne logic Mr. Jarr
knew It was useless to argue.
