Brett when fnce to face with such concrete problems of InternHtlotiul policy as confront him to-dny Presi dent, Wilson continues to cherish a mistaken Idea. He la not the President of Humnn- !ty; he Is the President of the United BUtes. His duties are not vague and gen eral, or diffused throughout the earth In the- performance of what he Is ac customed to Btylo "service." Ills du ties .aro specific, they are confined to the Interests of the United States, and they are dctlncd by the laws of the United States, not the general moral law. If he will pot out of his mind the confusion of olUclal responsibility which he manifested In his speech at the Jefferson Day banquet, the dltll cult task now confronting him will becomo less dlfllcult. Bloedstnnlf . Without entering Into the Interest ing etymological discussion aroused by the characterization of his Ameri can hosts ns "bloedslnnlg" In the correspondence of the elllclent and highly successful Von Paten, Tub Sun feels that It should be recorded nt this time injustice to the departed guest thnt his admittedly derogatory opinion of the Yankee Intellectuals was not without a defensible basis In iisccrtiilin-il fact. It Is imw revealed that at the time tho' Von Papon estimate of American reasoning eupaelt.v and power of Judgment was funned and recorded the critic nf our mental processes was possessed of an Intimate knowledge of certain proceedings, plots, conspir acies, then forming and afoot, Intoler able In t I it'll purpose, and beyond toleration In any other land setting Itself up ns civilized. Von I'.vpkn wntehed shall we say with paternal solicitude? the progtess of these vicious undertakings; and as h watched, he must have marvelled. Beyond doubt It was tho wonder aroused In his mind by the blindness of the authorities anil license en Joyed' by the conspirators that Im pelled him to set down the uncompli mentary Judgment the "rare and Mfe" messenger did not succeed in delivering at its private Kiiropeau destination. As the unprejudiced citizen contem plates tho belated revelations of In cendiary nnd murderous designs to which nn Inodiiquate but not unskil ful police Is now treating the com munity, can he tlnd it in Ills heart io sny that Von Papkn, watching the successful development of the engine of destruction to which America gave Ignorant and careless domicile, was not well within the bounds of fact when he applied the adjective bloed slnnlg to those; who permitted It? The Control of Cancer. A wont number of the iteilkal Timet refers to the "ratifying result of measures undertaken In Porls mouth, Knclnnil, for the education of the public In the control of cancer. Among these the chief clement ap pears to have been one thin Thk Sl'N hns constantly noticed; the Impera tive necessity nf suspecting every growth or tumor as malignant und obtaining Immediate opinion from a trustworthy phjslclnn with regard to Its nature. We have repeatedly pointed out that while no Imrin could result from thin early utteiiilon to what appears to' bo an Innocent growth, liccuiiso of ,ils freedom from ptiln, its removal nmy, in the event of lis being pro liolliiceil iiiiillglintit', save the life of the Inilhidiml. It Is gratifying to report that the eU.v of I'Dlisinoiith has demonstrated tlio priictlcnl vitliie of Ibis jirei'iiti. tloiinry measure. The minim! report of "Dr. rn.Ni:u, the Medical Oilieer of Health, for tie' vetr KM l, stales that there were only 1!)7 deaths from cancer In l'ortsinoutli In thnt year, us compared with liili) In HIKI; despite the fact that the population hits been greatly increased. When the educa tional measures were put In force In 1013 tho cancer death rato of tho city Imfl for a long time been Increasing. Tho tatlHtlcs for 11H4 aro tlterefore the first Indicating a decrease of deaths from cancer In the history of that city. Tht methods adopted hy the Health Deportment Included the monthly nub- Jetton In tha local newspapers of . : i articles regarding cancer and the printing and distribution nf n circular upon this subject. Periodical lecturftH were given to tnldwlves, nurses and social workers. They also offered gratuitous microscopic examinations aim reports on suspected cancerous growth, In order to assist physicians In Immediate diagnosis, In the case of patients who are unable to pay for laboratory service. It was discov ered that the reason for delay In seek ing advice was not, us Is usually sup posed, fear of oeriitlon, hut Igno rance of the nature of their disease by reiiMin of Its painlessness. The fact that the beginning of can cer Is usually not signalized by pain should be Impressed upon the public with reiterated emphasis, because In the present stnte of our knowledge the most successful management of this terrifying malady Is early surgi cal removal. What Might Have Been. The tvlebrntlon nf the playwright's tercentenary In this country must seem Incomplete to those American theatregoers who have lived without the opportunity to witness some of the beauties of Shakespearian Inter pretation which have long been prom ised to them. These wonders of the actor's art were held before the eyes of the public ns possible achieve ments of our native players. Now It seems us If after all the.se golden dreams were not to be realized. It Is Improbable for various rea sons that Sarah Bkknhaudt will play I'omro even to the .itiVf of M.vrnp. Adams. It seems now as If the time for the fultilment of this promise had! passed, for even the Indefatigable French actress might refuse to under take the rflle of the Montague lover. Miss A ii a Ms has never evinced any desire to return to her Interpretation of Juliet, although It was nnnouueed regularly thnt'the union of these two players was to he nn Important Inci dent of the theatre year. And the Hamlet of William Oil i.kttk. It Is true that his admirers feared he might piny the part with a clgur In his mouth, but they neverthe less nwnlted with eagerness the ap pearance of the American actor In the port. Assuredly he would have made an Interesting version of the play. "Flnmlet" with the Prince missing has been heard of. But there would prob ably have been nobody but Humid in this performance had Mr. c;ii.lkttb used the same method with Shakk si'k.auk that he adopted last spring with VirToniKN Sarikht. The stirring news that the scenery for this pro duction was already painted was once coiNinuulcnted to a waiting world. But Mr. (;ii.m:ttk has succumbed to the lure of the camera, and If he ever plays tho Prince of Denmark now It will be In silence. And the l.adu Macbeth of Mauik 1 ni:ss!.t:it why hns that stalwart dramatic characterization never been seen after Mis Dnrssi.ra's earnest protestation that she would act the rdio or was It? bust?

The Cicrman Campaign Against Kngland's Foot Supply. Mr. Itom.iiT I. Iliifsiov, member for Liverpool, was right when he de clared In the House of Commons on Wednesday that the Zeppelin prob lem was insignificant, so far at Kng lnnd whs concerned, compared with the menace of submarine warfare. The time nitty come when Zeppelins operating In lleets und currying Im ineni (inutilities of explosives will be able to lay Kngllsh cities In ruins mid destroy great number-! of their Inhabitants: but lit present I lit- dam nge the Invaders do is negligible mid tho I'lisiinltles Inllleled nre not very iilaruilug. The renewed submarine warfare hits already caused heavy losses in shipping nnd cargoes, and unless checked it will seriously enibiirriiss Croat llrlliiln In her conduct of the war. Kvery day several Itritlsh and neutral ships; are torpedoed, on some dajs as ninny us six. The attacks are not haphazard. They are made on Information supplied In some mys terious way by the German Intelli gence department, ami when u ship Is sunk she carries u valuable cargo down with her Io the bottom. It nmy bo war mnlerltil, but generally It Is grain or other I' Mud's. Mr. llot'Mu.N, wbi) W a shipowner, said in Hie course of his speech: "Hotween ono-thlrd and one-half of the nation's food supply Is already com ing on neutnil ships. If Gennany Is per sistent In sinking every vessel crKoun lered shn can frighten us. Already neu Hals are shy about sending us cargoes." No wonder, when a ship can pay for herself In one voyage, so high nre freight charges. Owner:, who have made handsome prolits will prefer to lay up their ships until the Allies Iiiim; got the upper hum! of the sub marines again, or owners) will with draw from tin. wnr zone nnd seek charters elsewhere, In tho South Amerlcnn or Asiatic trade for In stance. Jir, Hoi'hion reckons that since the war begun IW0 oceangoing British mcri'hiiiit ships have been lost "from all causes." It follows, therefore, that If neutrals should be frightened nway from Itritlsh home ,,.. ,m t imu0iii . ..a waters It would bo Impossible to find enough British ships to bring to port the foodstuffs required for dally con sumption. tn Knglnnd no one now speaks flippantly of the German "blockade." Tho evidence of Its success nt the present time Is writ too large. The proportion of neutral ships sunk Is noticeable; on some diiyn It Is fifty per cent, or more. No suspected neu tral vessel Is allowed to escape, and a "dead set" Is made ugalnt the Scandinavians. To spread pnnlc among neutral shipping circles Is clearly the purpose of the (lermun Admiralty. Germany, too, Is looking beyond the wnr. The more merchant men she sinks, British and neutral, the better for her Interests In com-1 merce after the wnr, assuming that at the worst she will get a draw. But the game has lis hazards. A state of war with the United States would deprive Germany of her In terned fleet. American ships must therefore, ns n rule, be allowed to pass. Some of the Euronenn neutrals If pushed too far might seize German ships lying In their ports, but this risk Is not formidable. There can be no doubt thnt Germany desires above nil things to maintain pacific rela tions with the United States while the campaign to cut down Great Britain's food supply to a minimum Is being ruthlessly waged. It Is plain to be seen thnt Germany Is building great hopes upon tho new warfare. As a means of demoralizing the British people It seems to he full of promise. A One Round Encounter at Albany. That Frank Moran, professional pugilist, has something heroic In his makeup was Indicated by his recent clash of arms, fists, &c, with one .Ikss Wili.arii, a superman of the prize ring; hut Mohan's moral cour age, It appears, Is even more remark able than his physical. Moban has had the nerve to go to Albany, for the first time in his life, and beard the opponents of tlstle en counters In their legislative den. Con fronting with gloved hands nnd bare face Senator Jones, who has been ad vocating a hill to abolish boxing ex hibitions In this State.

The effort of Senator Jones to counter this body blow was Ineffec tive, nnd to escape further syllogistic punishment tho legislator threw up his hands und agreed to kill his untl boxing bill at once.

An Pnterrined View of the Record of Standard OU. To tiik l.iiiTort ok TlIK Son filr; A Standard Oil battue! All the old stand bys of the "Independents" howl In, find every Congressman who owns sn auto (or w hoso "people home" own or operate a little Henry) tn full cry. Formidable? 1 should think no. The high price of gnsolcne, Ac, quite a battle slogan. Yet what does It nil amount to? Jle lleve me, after much chugging And honking It must simmer down to a hum as of a modern motor doing Its little tegular on a cood .State road on a sum mer morning, with all tho landscape before It. Thus, am I moved, looking back over many a movement against the standard what time It 'had shocks to endure and steady prosecution and persecution to fnco and when It seemed to have Its very cxlstenco at stake. And yet some how It emerged calm, progressive, un hurt and still doing business at the old stand. And every time It did so nobody came out In the papers snylng that the right had won; that honest business (as busi ness goes) conducted by men of ability , was coming Into Ite own. And yet was It not so? A business one of whose iintiicnra Kepi running accounts wun onlng iwiKing them over half a million p.iimanl nulga of American buidness men as shrewd rJli ua an,j aa iiiuy iii.ihq mem ne worm rouno. must be a Miuaro business. It could not last otherwise. And this gasolene turmoil that Is be ginning to divide tiparo In the papers with the battle of Verdun and the Presidential campaign. Doughty Con greswncn are sending to the departments for papers : Investigations good old word have been afoot, and what have they found? That gasolene was sold for Icsh In some Htates than In othpra. 1 cannot e.tcp to take up the fractions and decimals that tell the damning story, but enough has been printed to make one surmise that gasolene costs the companies 'more In some places than In other places far apart. And Uurope 'has been taking till of tho commodity that lt could lay hantls on. Amid all this drain, this clamor for "more ga." what do the wells do? The wells rich in gnsolcne content run down, and only weiln low In gasolene liicreakc. This un- craa'otiit conduct nn thtdr mirt hit heen very unfeeling. 1 am sure: hut it tn evilably pointed to higher cost for gaso lene. In vain did the oil men raise the price of crude oil until It was doubled In order to eilmulate the well drivers. Scarcely n ressonsc worth naming In the way of new production came from the o.l regions of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, but the ris In crudo la costing the oil men a pretty penny hence another Jolt upward Is necessary In gasolene.

I think It Is useless to cuinment upon that statement. As Mr. Carew In bis letter dated March 7. 191, to his constituents Indi cated quite clearly that he had no re gard for the "lives of American cltlictft and saw no reason why he should aid In upholding the honor of our country. I seek Information from Tits Bun : Has Mr. Carew now some little re- anr, tnr Atnprlrnn lives? Has he HOW . some Idea of maintaining the honor of the country? Or Is he endeavoring- to disarm criticism by maamg ois con stituents now believe that he Is In favor of being prepared to avenge the murder i of our citizens and to maintain our honor? Or Is he simply out io secure credit for the profit which some of his constituents may secure 'by necessary expenditures for preparedness? Has he really had a change of heart, or is he still the cold blooded Individual who looks with Indifference upon the mur dnr of American citizens when travel- ting, ns they bnve a right to do, or does hi see that there is napney in u mr some of his constituents, or does he I... ,, ,l,.,il.it lnltpr llM Will 1 reinstall! himself' In the opinion of some -V-nnnn f his constituents?
