"Does the situation call for any plans
for the national defense?" an olhc at of

"Not at all, was the reply; "nor will
It do so unless, as Is very unlikely, theto
should teom to be some prospect of the
United Stntes being drawn Into tho con

ment In that It wltl not be Involved In
tho struggle, and that there Is nothing In
tlic situation making It necessary for
It to do more ttiau maintnin a neuirni
position, with a view, after the fighting
shall have gone to certain lengths, again
to offer Its services ns mediator, and
thus help bring nbout general pence.
That tho Wilson Administration will
renew the offer of Its services in the
direction Just mentioned, as soon as
there Is an opportunity, Is conceded
hero Indeed, the United States Is the
only one of the great Governments of
the world which will be In position to
take such f step. When tho offer Is
renewed and accepted, It Is believed
that the representatives of the nations
now at wnr will meet In this country
to draw up a treaty of peace, just as
the repiescntatlves of Russia and Japan
met here, at the suggestion of Presi
dent Theodore Roosevelt, to bring nbout
the official end of the war between those
Powers in the Far EaBt. Thus, twice
within a decade will the United Stutes
have be-n the ngmcy through which

Even If the unexpected should happen,
and tho United States he drawn Into the
present conflict. Its policy of mitlonnl de

n.itlon or combination of nations that
might confront It In on emergency of
that kind would be able to Invade the

The United Stutos, with 3000 miles of salt
water between It and Europe on one side,
and between 600 and T000 miles of salt

Hut one has a grent deal of sympathy
wltli some other towns along the coast
which are losing heavily through the cir
culation of quite baseless rumors. Many
possible visitors to Margate have been
kept away by stories that the sands were

territorials, that half the houses and
hotels along tho front had been closed by
the niilltarv authorities, and that guns
had been heard which showed that a
great naval action wns being fought In

exaggerations or Inventions. Tho sound

One hears some really absurd stories of
the spy mania that has disturbed the
poise of many people especially among
the uneducated. The most harmless use
of pencil and paper brings a man under
suspicion. The other day a topical artist
was drawing a sketch of tho Greenwich
gasometer for some quite Innocent pur
pose. A woman, who passed, caught
sight of him and exposed his deep-laid
scheme to the passers-by. "He ought t"
oe ashamed of himself he ought; but I can
see through him. Ilea got it nil down,
and one of them nlrshlps will como along
and know where to drop its bomb." The
argument was so convincing that the poor
artist had to be escorted to his home by
a policeman. The next day he went out
to Kpnuington. and drew a dismal house
with a tree In front of It supposing that
no possible objection could be raised to
that. Hut very much the same thine hap
pened aB at Greenwich, and, when the
baffled artist appealed to a policeman to
sa what good the drawing of the housu
and tree could do to the Germans, tha
reprerentattve of the law went so far as
to admit that he could not see what good
that drawing could do to any one.
The editor of the photographic column
In a leading weekly advises his readers
to restrict the use of their cameras to
scenes that can be taken from their
own back gardens. The man who at
tempte to snap-shot anything that can
be remotelv connected with the move
ment of troops runs a serious risk of
arousing suspicion not so much from the
police, of course, as from bystanders
whose nervea are rattled by all the goealp
about iplt. Even an Innocent courteiy

"Yes. There are maps in the War De

they were revised at the time of the

sarv for the United States at nnv time
to enter Mexico, Its troops would know
In advance all about the roads, the rail

all other Information which an invading
