The Submarine Blockade
The latest, ;ind what will undoubtedly become
the most perplexing international problem or the
European war is presented in the German pro
clamation of a war zone ill lhe territorial waters of
the Itritish Isles and France, ainuuiuing to the de
claration, of a submarine blockade, something un
heard of in warfare. There have been two kinds
of blockades, the paper blockade and the effect iv
blockade. It has been agreed goncially that a
blockade which the nation declaring it cannot en
force physically, is not bound to be observed by
oilier nations: that is. that the mere declaration
ot a state of blockade does not actually cause it
The surprisingly wide range of Lhe i icrmaii sub
marines which have been destroying Iiritish ves
sels of commerce on the west toast of Iri hind Indi
cates that such a blockade as lias been dedued
can be maintained: that is, that is is not a meie
paper blockade but a fairly effective one.
This appearance is given it by the amazing ac
tion of the iiritish liner Lusitania Hying the Am- ,
crican Hag iu what the" Germans have - declared
l ho" a war zone, and stealing into her home port
like a blockade runner. This incident strengthens
the German position and af funis a stronger reason
why the Germans should prevent in any way they
win. the landing' of vessels flying neutral flags, at
iiritish potts. ,
The Germans find this problem in the way: The
necessity1 of sinking neutral vessels which may
refuse to recognize the blockade. In the ease of
the usual effective blockade, the warships of the
netioii declaring it cbuld lake possession of the
merchant vessels disregarding it. Sometimes they
h;e found It advisable to sink them,, hut ih clews
and passengers were always taken off.
Hut the German submarines could not . Urns ros-.
cue the crews, anil passengers. All that could, be
done would be to set them adrift in th- small boats
of the doomed vessel. But that would- be .risky
business for (lie Germans, for many of the mer
chant vessels carry an armament which woi;Id If
effective against the frail submarine whose work
musf-hcirrti.uc stealthily and without warning. There
can bo ho firing of shots across bows.
The Gentian '.submarine activities would probabl;
bac been directed only against British vessels of
commerce but for the action of the Tiritish in seiz
ing a neutral vessel laden with food hui plicr of .t

ereignly, below the surface. We cannot eery well
complain of, lhe German proclamation until the
complaints wc have alreadv made against the Bri
tish course which provoked it, have been heeded
and the cause of them removed.
.Many strange and unexpected . situations have

at I4k beginning that within a few mouths, in
spile of their undisputed control of the sea, the
islands would be in a. slate of blockade or that

The Foot and Mouth Plague
In this favored region of the Salt Itiver Valley
what wc know of lhe dreaded foot and mouth dis
ease is mostly from hearsay , and if we know no
more of it it will be because of the energetic meas
ures being taken by the federal authorities fy pre
vent its spread and stamp it cut.
Almost incalculable fosses h.tve been suffered by
the farmers of Europe and South America through
the disease, according to information furnished by
the United Stales Department vt Agriculture. So
widespread is the plague among.' .the cattle , and
other farm animals in European countries that the
I'nitcd Stales has limited iniHrtatlon's vt live stock

' too severe,1 but 'they would probably change their
mind on learning of the ravages it hus caused in

pestilence has become so general that H is econ

i res taken in Ireland to stamp it out. There not
only was stock slaughtered and a quarantine much
more strict than that adopted here put in force, but
the wheels' of all vehicles and the feet of all horses
which left infected places Were washed with disin
fectants, cans of the.-fluid were placed in fields, to
be used whenever need for it appeared, slacks of
hay were disinfected with superheated steam, luxes
in the neighborhood were killed so far as possible
The difficulty in determining how the disease
spreads is one of the things that makes it so stub
born lo control. A week ago there was consterna
tion at the Worcester, Mass., State Hospital when'
it was discovered that a herd of registered Hol
sieln cows valued at $:;0.l.ill had become infected.
It is not known how the disease got ninong the
cattle, but il is thought Unit lo check it il will lie
necessary to slaughter the whole herd of seventy
three head. If the accounts given of (he character
of this plague is accurate, il seems to be a dan
