re !y means that whatever dispute there may be

serious doubt whether the legislature -would have
power to enact, a law with such a provision, for
it would amount to an amendment by the legis
lature? of the constitution whic h gives the "gov -crnor
power to grant reprieves, commutations .and
pardons after convictions, FOR ALL OFFKNSKS
ecept treason and cases of i.opeachnient upon
ench conditions and with such restrictions anil
limitations as may be provided by law."
"Restricticns and limitations'' were fixed by the
first state legislature, so that while this power has
iot been taken away from the governor and can
be taken away frtm him only by an amendment of
the constitution, he can exercise it only upon the
lecommendation of the board of pardons and paroles,
it still remains hut can be exercised by the governor
and no one else.
The board of pardons and paroles was created
by a referred act with which, under an amendment
to the constitution, aunptei! list November, there
can be no in.terfereiiee by tht legislature. Th? low
er to recommend to the governor pardons, paroles
'or commutations for .til offenses, including mur.lcr,
'except treason and cases of impeachment," was
vested in the board and ennnot be removed or
abridged by a legislative act. Nor ran toe legis
lature reduce the list of crimes which the consti
tution says may be pardoned. If so it could ly a
simple act take away from the governor the power
to issue a. pardon, parole or -commutation in any
case. That would amount to more than a restric tion
or a limitation.
Then it must be evident that . the legislature;
cot. Id do no more than io abolish capital punish
ment. It would hardly tare to assume that res
ponsinility so soon after the submission of the
eii.estion to the people and we do not think that
the governor, himseif a strong advocate ol popular
rule, means to suggest to the legislature action or.
li.at bare- question.

In the services of man.

In their journey to the sea,

In good time will set them free.

On their mission they will go.
And give life to thirsting farm lands,
Lying many miles below.

And then go where he directs them.

standing which is the aim of both gov
ernments, the imperial German gov
ernment considers it' first necessary to
convince itself that the information ac
cssihle to both governments about the
facts tr. case is complete and in accord.
"The government of the I'nited
S'ales proceeds on the assumption that .
the Lusitania could be regarded as an
ordinary unarmed merchantman. The
imperial Cernian government allows
itiself in this connection to point out
that the Lusitania was one of the larg
est and fastest British meri'hant ships,
built with government funds as an.
auxiliary cruiser and carried expressly
as such in the navy list, issued by the
British admiralty.
"It is further known by the imperial
(iVrmnn government from trustworthy
reports from its agents and neutral
passengers, that ,for a considerable
time practically all or more of ttie val
uable British merchantmen have been
equipped with cannon, ammunitiem and
other weapons manned by persons who
have been specially trained in serving
cuns. The Lusitania, too, according to
infoimation received here, had cannon
aboard which were mounted and con
cealed below decks.
The imperial German government
further has the honor to direct the par
ticular attention of the American gov
ernment" to the fact that the British
admiralty in a confidential instruction
issued February lDla reirommended its
mercantile shipping not only to seek
protection under neutral flags anil dis
tinguishing marks, but also, while thus
disguised to attack German subma
rines by ramming. As a special invi
tation to merchantmen to destroy a
submarine, the British government also
offered high prizes and has alreaely
paid such rewards.
The imperial German government in
view of these facts indubitably known
to it. if unable to regard the FritisVi
merchantmen in a zone of naval oper
ations specified by the admiralty staff
of the German navy as "undefended."
and German commanders consequently
are no longer able to observe the cus
tomary regulations of the prize law
which they have before always fol
lowed." Gottlieb Von Jagow. the German for
eign secretary in an interview by the -Associated
Press outlined the reasons
that impelled Germany to send an ad
interim note to the I'nited States in
stead of a final and definite reply. He
sain -the issues involved are of such
importance, and the views in the re-
I gard io the Lusitania show suc h a va
riance that the German government
believes it essential to attempt to es
tablish a common bastis of fact before
entering into a discussion of the isT'ues
