THE HARTFORD HERALD Page 3 te A - mt 1-7 BJ sr T THE RELATIONS BETWEEN NATIONS u And What Their Sever ance Means. CASE OF AUSTRIA IN POINT Not a Formal Declaration Of War, But Unpleasant Situation. VXOKRT.IIN WHAT MIGHT COMK TIig question here asked la doubt less In many minds: "To the- Editor of The Sun: "Will you kindly explain what the sev ering of diplomatic relations really means, or rather what the effect of such action is? 1 mean outside of tho possibility of war following, Is thero any gain or loss to either side, and what would be tho possible loss to Austria, for Instance, should a rup ture occur? P. H. E." In tho present caso the severance of diplomatic relations would mean that this Government was no longer on speaking terms with tho Govern ment of Austria-Hungary; that in tercourse between the two Govern ments, formerly conducted directly, mould have to bo either suspended ir lor clrcu!tou8ly managed through the "$ood oflices of a third party, niucu as In the case of belligerents. From the point of view of Wash ington the normal and sentimontal algnlflcanco of such a proceeding has already been explained. Secretary Lansing detincl It when he remind fjed Austria-Hungary that- tho wan ton slaughter of neutral non-combatants, under conditions admitted by tho Austro-Hungarlan Admiral ty's statement, was an act which is B condemned by tho world as Inhuman find barbarous, and which, unless there shall be disavowal and repara tion, Is properly destructive of good relations between the two countries. What our correspondent wants to know, however, is not so much tho moral significance of such action in our own view and that of tho civi lized neutral world, as Its practical effect upon tho Government and peo ple thus rebuked. We reply that the practical effect upon Austria would depend upon the unpredictable course of events, fol lowing the breaking of diplomatic relations and on .the methods by which our Government gave concrete expression to its new attitudo to ward Austria-Hungary. It is useless to blink tho fact that tho termination of diplomatic rela tions, while not necessarily leading to war. would greatly increase the possibility of actual hostilities. In case of a repetition of tho Incident which had been our reason for re calling tho American Ambassador and sending home the representative .sot Austria-Hungary, nothing would o left for us to do but to accept he further outrago unless wo were prepared to proceed to physical acts of belligerency in punishing it. ' That contingency neea, noi oe ui cussed. Short of war," there might follow tho twelve months notice of the termination of the treaty oi 1829, upon which rest our relations of amity and reciprocity in matters of commerce nnd navigation. This is a typical treaty defining the mu "" tual rights of residence and trade jitf tho mutual guaranties of se irlty, protection and most favored nation privileges. Its comprehensive provisions cover so much of Austrian and Hungarian Interests within our borders, and likewise so much of American interests In tho territory of the empire, that tho blessings of its .operation and the continuity of its 'existence are taken for granted by almost everybody, like tho bless ings and continued accessibility of the air wo, breathe. Nevertheless, the treaty is a scrap of paper which eea be legally and honorably termi nated at a year's notice. Whether the greater sufferer by the termina tion of this contract of amity and mutual privileges would bo Ameri ca or Austrin-Hungary, Is n question ' i '.,.,: , ., , .T-rr- a Itomach Catarrh Is Very Prevalent In this climate catarrh In ft prevalent disease.

BMWONRHED A PART In Bringing the Charming Widow Into the White House Circle. SOUTH POKTICO "FATAIi" SPOT Washington Dec, 25. President Wilson's announcement of his on gagement to Mrs. Gait was made from tho Whlto House on Oct. 7 nnd camo as a surprise. Tho Chief Ex ecutive's attentions to tho charming widow had been tea table gossip hero sinco early spring, but few per sons outside of his immediate clrclo of friends and thoso of Mrs. Gait suspected the romance. The President met Mrs. Gait not long after tho death of his flrst wlfo. Sho was flrst brought Into the Whlto House circle by Dr. Cary T. Gray son, the President's personal physi cian. Dr. Grayson made the ac quaintance of tho charming Virginia widow through her friend, Miss Ger trude Gordon, a young heiress. Noting her' tact, ready sympathy and willingness to smooth over tho hard places for her friends, he je Iccted her to provide the "congenial comradeship" he had prescribed for MIes Helen Woodrow Bones, the President's young kinswoman, who had suffered a nervous breakdown. The casual acquaintance of Mrs. Gait and Miss Bones soon ripened Into a sincere affection and tho for mer became a frequent vjsltor at the White House. Her flrst meeting with tho President, according to gossip, took place In tho south porti co of tho Executive Mansion. It was in the late autumn ann both wero in mourning, Mrs. Gait still clinging to black, although eight years had elapsed since her widowhood. It was In February so the story goes that the President flrst began to show personal Interest In Mrs. Gait rather than tho mere casual po liteness with which he would treat any visitor to the ladies of his house hold, and one April evening, after she had dinod informally with Miss Bones, ho escorted her homo In one of tho Whlto House cars. It was also in April that they flrst appeared in public together at a ball game at the American League Park. Thereafter they met often. Tho White House automobile often was seen drawn up in front of Mrs. Gait's house; and motor parties, composed of the President, Mrs. Gait, Miss Bones, Dr. Grayson and some times Miss Gordon, became such us ual occurrences that Washington no longer commented. Then came Mrs. Gait's visit to MIbs Bones and Miss Margaret Wil son, the President's eluest daughter, at Harlakenden House, tho summer White Houso in Vermont, where dur? ing the President's brief vacation she was his companion on his dally round of golf Ho also enjoyed long walks in this pleasant companion ship nnd rode many miles by auto mobile through the Vermont and New Hampshire hills with Mrs. Gait. This visit was also marked by the first entertatnlng In which any oil tho members of the Wilson family had indulged since tho beginning of their period of mourning for the lato Mrs. Wilson, an Informal tfca and garden party for the members qf the summer colony, at which Miss Wilson and Miss Bones tesscs. wero hos: While Dr. Grayson may well be dubbed "Cupid's assistant" for first bringing the President and his ilan coo together, it Is to Miss Bones, de mure, Bweot-mannorod, soft-voiced and gentle, that tho credit must go for "managing" affairs so adroitly that tho President might pursue bin courtship. Nobody who remombers President Wilson as ho was a year ago, with traces of each of his fifty-eight yenrs graven on Uls.face. and who soes him to-day, looking ten yoars young er, his austerity molted, his shoul ders no longer bowed with cares of State, can doubt that under the in fluence of the simple, charming, gra cious woman ho has, won, tho "year's at the spring" for him. t Barler-Myor.
