Lo: don, April 20. The appointment

"Before Everything Else I Love
America," President Tells
Associated Press Diners.
Presid? m 'A , capitulated yrster
day to the leading newspaper men of
the country. They held him as their
guest for two hours at the annu.il
luncheon <>f The Associated Pre ?, nt
the Waldorf, and let him do all the
talking. He made a special trip to New
York to din? with and talk to the news?
paper editors and publishers, arriving
here at 1 p. m., and returning to the
Capital on the Sunset Limited at 4:36
i p. m.
The President was accompanied by
' Josephus Daniels, Secretary of the
Navy; Dr. Cary Gray son, his aid, and
Joseph P. Tumulty, his secretary. He
held an informal reception after the
luncheon, standing at the door of the
Grand Ballroom and shaking hands with
the 350 members of The Associated
Press and their guests as they filed by.
Apparently he was in a happy mood.
He touched the humor of his audience
at the start by telling the newspaper
men that he felt somewhat constrained
in talking in their presence, and, per?
haps, could not say all he really
thought He lectured the editors for
letting false rumors and "news from
Turtle Bay" get into the papers, par
. tieularly in the present days of war in
Furope. .
Explain? "True Neutrality."
Most of the President's address was
devoted to his exposition of "true neu?
trality," and his remarks were fre?
quently npplau.led. He emphasized the
duties which devolve upon America in
relation to the European war, and de?
clared that ?Uli? nation was bound to
play an important part in adjusting the
a affair? of the world once the fighting
is ended. He said that the neutrality
of the United States wss not a petty
d.sirc to keep out of trouble, because
there was something so much greater
| to do than fight. A great distinction,
\ he said, was coming to the United
States?the distinction of a nation of
sclf-contrCal and self-mastery.
The times behind us had been diffi?
cult enough, he said, but the times be?
fore us were likely to be more difficult
because it was clear that the world's
a 'airs were drawing ra.iidly to a cli?
max, and at the climax the test will
come, both for the nations at war and
for this country. We shall be called
upon to assist in reconstructing the
processes of peace, and we must have
our judgments prepare?! and our spirits
chastened against the coming of that
, day.
"So that I am not speaking in a self?
ish spirit when I say th.it our whole
duty, for the present, at any rate, is
summed up in this motto 'America
' " said the President. "Let us
think of America bef?te we think of
Furope, in oriU-r that America may he
fit to be Europe's friend when the day
of tested friendship comes. The test
of friendship is not now sympathy with
the one side or the other, but getting
ready to help both sides when the
struggle is over."
President Wilson continued to define
the basis of neutrality. He said:
"The bnsis of neutrality, gentlemen,
is not indifference; it is not ?elf-inter
. ?t. The basis of neutrality is sympa?
thy for mankind. It is fairness, it is
good will at bottom. It is Impartiality
of spirit and of judgment. I wish that
? all of our fellow citizens could realize
I that.
"The Mediating Nation."
"There is in some quarters s disposi?
tion to erf-ate distempers in this body
politic. Men are even uttering slsn
?iers against the Cnited States as if to
excite ner. Men are saying that if we
i hould go to war upon either side there
will be a divided America -an abomina?
ble libel of ignorance.
"America is not all of it vocal just
now. Ii is vocal in spots. But I for
one have a complete and abiding faith
in that great silent body of Americans
who are not standing up and shouting
and expressing their opinion? jut now,
hut are wait"??/ to find out and support
; the duty of America.
"We are the mediating nation of the
world. I ?1? not mean that we under?
take not t.. mind our own busim
t<> mediate where other people are quar*
relling. I m? an the word m a bi

Before the dauntless Wilbur Ihe two
men fled, taking with them a gold
watch and chain, heirlooms, valued at
i $700, and a necklace of pearls worth
$1,000. Had it not bren for young
I Baldwin they probably would have got
away with a jewel case containing
$6,000 in trinkets and rings.
Wilbur is the son of Harry Wilbur
Baldwin, clerk in the. Municipal Court
at Ninety-sixth Street and Broadway.
.Monday night hi.? fa'her went out to a
card party, leaving his wife and two
boys alone in the apartment, which is
on the second floor. Mrs. Baldwin was
uneasy, fer the nigiil before she be?
lieved she had seen a man's face
, pressed acainst the window of her bed?
D-jg Drugged by Thieves.
She and her boya "vent to their beds,
however, leaving Rex, a big collie, on
guard. At 1 in tne morning Warner,
the eldest lad, was awuki ?ie?l by a
man bending over him. As he sat up
I a revolver svas shoved into his face and
, he was commanded to Nad the way to
his mother's jewel case. He guided
? his captor down the hall, where an?
other man met them. The boy showed
the pair the bureau in which Mrs.
Baldwin kept her valuables. The watch
and the necklace were lying upon it,
and the burglars took these.
By this time Mrs. Baldwin had been
aroused. As she came out of her room
she also svas covered by a revolver, and
told that if she made any noise she
would be killed
And then Wilbur entered upon the
scene. One of the burglars reached for
him. Wilbur fled, shouting lustily. He
wasn't really acarad, but he remem
. bered that he had left his shooting iron
in the other room, and he went after it.
When he reappeared, flourishing the
i weapon, the burglars leaped through a
window and i'isappeared.
Family Revois er Rtol4*-n.
After the burglars fled, Mrs. Baldwin
rushed for the drawer where the fam?
ily revolver was kept, to find that it
had been stolen. She then telephoned
for the police.
Patrolmen found that the thieves had
, entered and left the apartment by low?
ering a rope from the rouf of the Pro?
' gressive Club, at 9 West Fighty-eighth
Street, to the Baldwin window ledge.
They had pried up the sash. On enter?
ing their first act had been to chloro?
form the dog.
The case is one of a series of burg
: laries which have occurred in the
! neighbodhood. A month ago, G. A.
; Derschuek, who was at that tune living
i in the apartment now occupied by the
Baldwins, was chloroformed, with the
rest of the family, and had most of his
valuables stolen.

Calls Rear Admiral's
Speech on U. S. Expan?
sion Almost a Crime.
Washington, April 20. Secretarj
Bryan said to-day that before criticis?
ing Rear Admiral Peary's recent speech
on possible territorial expansion of the
? United States he had written the real
?admiral for verification of his remarks
?and received an Huthenticated cony. Mr
Bryan'? comment on the speech was, in
i part, as follows:
"Rear Admiral Peary, speaking at o
Republican banquet in New York re
eently, said: 'We cunnot stand still. A
hundred years hence we shall either be
obliterated as a nation, or we shall oc?
cupy the entire North American world
"The advantages of free speech ar?
so great that we are compelled to ac?
cept with these advantages the evils
that follow from an occasional abuse of
the privilege by persons sufficiently
prominent to secure publicity for their
views. It is to be regretted, however,
that a man known to the public should
so much enjoy indulging his imagina?
tion as to be indifferent to the effect
which his utterances may have upon
this country's relations with other na?
"Admiral Peary does not, of course,
claim to be inspired. He is simply ex?
pressing his private opinion, but his
name, unfortunately, gives wings to
tnsevords. He fixes one hundred years
a? the period during which it will be
lary for this government to se
! cure control of the continent or dis
apptar. Such a prediction from an ob?
scure man would be foolish. From one
in his position it is little less than a
crime. His prediction is based upon
an assumption which has been demon?
strated to he false, namely, that a na?
tion must constantly expand or go into
"It has been a century since the
boundary line between the United
1 Slate? and Ciliada was established, and
yet both countries are more prosperous
to-day than they were a hundred years
ago. This country shares the larger
part of North America with several
Spanish-speaking republics, and there
j is no reason why there should be any
dispute between them in a century or
in many centuries. The idea that a na?
tion can grow only geographically is as
un-American as it is untrue."
Rear Admiral Peary declined to com?
ment on Mr. Bryan? statement, but
pointed out that he first presented the
idea "that the entire North American
world segment is the eventual destiny
of the Cnited States" in a public ad?
dress in London in November, 11*03.

John W. Wilson, heail of a supply
firm, found a way to solve the love
tangle in which his wife, Mrs. Anna B.

One day Wilaon called Kichenhauer

that he had resolved to quit the house.
"Why?" Mked Kichenhauer.
"Because my wife loves you too
much," replied Wilson.
"Yes. that's right," replied the real
estate man; "1 loe? ner to?, much, too."
Then Wilson moved, his wife and
children remaining.

London, April 20.- The British Pi

Syracuse, April 20.?Colonel Theo?
dore Roosevelt showed his teeth to
\ dsy. Though somewhat hampered by
lawyers, h? had a bully good day, and
got in a few whack? at the bosse?.
, Whatever hi? attorney? may Imply in
' their necessarily circultou? course, th?
| Colonel 1? frank to ?ay that this state?
ment of last ?ummer on which William
' Barnes 1? basing hi? $50,000 libel suit
ws? meant for William Barne?. In fact,
'> Colonel Roosevelt was called to prove
just that point.
At the opening of the afternoon ses?
sion John M. Bower?, counsel for
Colonel Roosevelt, renewed hi? motion
to dismiss the complaint. This time ha
based it on the failure of his oppo?
nents to show that the article com?
plained of was levelled at the plaintiff.
William M. Ivins protested that he
had thought that point covered by
stipulations. "However," he declared,
"I can easily prove it by calling Mr.
Roosevelt "
"I should prefer to have you prove it
by calling the plaintiff," suggested Mr.
"Will you permit me to select my
own witneises?" demanded Mr. Ivins.
"Mr. Roosevelt, take the stand, please."
The Colonel did ?o with alacrity.
? Solid and chunky, he ?eemed as firmly
1 planted as if welded to the chair.
Nevertheles?, from the very first It
j was evident that he was exercising
1 great self-restraint. One Instinctively
listened for hissing steam and felt
that had any Rooseveltian gauge been
invented It would have registered
| about as much as such a delicate in?
strument cculd record.
Meant to Hit Barvee.
"Did you write the article as direct?
ed toward and concerning Mr. Barnes,
the plaintif? in this action?" asked Mr.
The Colonel's head had been poised
as if watching for a blow. It came for?
ward with a jerk. His lip? snarled
back to give tongue and teeth full play
in enunciating his answer, "I did."
That ended the testimony giver? by
"Mr. Roosevelt of the I'nited States,"
as Mr. Ivins called him in his opening
address, in beh-lf of his foeman, "Mr.
Barnes of Albany."
Mr. Bowe*rs took his client in hand
and, despite the constant suave objec
i tions raised by Mr. Ivins, led him iront
i Santiago to Albany.
Mr. iTina'i persistency began to wear
I on the Colonel. Swinging around ab
' ruptly until he faced Justice Andrews,
Colonel Roosevelt demanded bluntly,
i "Am I not permitted to show that there
was this do s system?"
Justice Andrews replied that, accord?
ing to his notion, the complaint was
based on the <*narge that there existed
a corrupt conspiracy between William
Barnes and Charles F. Mun.hy. How
the existence of a party organization
, could affect the lsnua he failed to see.
.Mr. Bowers undertook to help his
| client by arguing for the admission of
j the testimony in mitigation of dam
1 ages. "May I"- began Colonel
I Roosevelt.
"Do you want to help your lawyer
?out?" inquired Mr. Bowers sharply.
The ex-President subsided, but only
for an instant. His face brightened as
he propounded what he evidently re?
garded as a noser: "Hut I haven't
answared the last question yet."
"Hint," interposed Mr. Ivins, gently,
"is ju-t whut we are trying to prevent
you from doing."
Snubbed, Annoyed and Determined.
SnubScd on all sides, the friend of
emperors shook his head despondently
and glanced at the jury. It was easy
to see thut if he l.a.l that jury in a
ten-acre lot with plenty of head room
there was a whole lot he could tell
then about bosses Ile leaned forward
and beckoned to his counsel.
"We must get that permission," he
announced in an earne.-t stage whisper.
"I've got t.j ?innrer that question."
So eounael for the Colonel and.coun?
sel for Mr. Barnes went at it Six for
,the defendant und four for the plain?
tiff, they lined up in front of Justice
Andrews's de?k and talked severally
land singly. It looked like a real in
ter? ting dispute, and Colonel Roose?
velt, inventor of the Ananias Club, had
' to keep out of it, though seated within
three feet of tho nearest contentants.
It annoyed him. At times he fairly
writhed, while his fingers clutch??.I the
arms of his chair. When he could catch
the eye of one of his array of counsel
the Colonel's stumpy forefinger .would
summon imperiously and his body
wou'd quiver as he whispered the idea
which racked him.
At the end of nearly half an hour's
diaeussion Justice Andrews announced
' that he would reserve dttialon until
1 to-morrow. Counsel for Mr. Barnes
I contend that the ?Colonel can't touch
j on groiujul that he did n?Jt cover in
, his answer to the suit.
When it was all over Colonel Roo?e
