In the minds o nil American citizens, native or naturalized, it
should be "America first." It is on that strong platform the Aiucri-
people expect ami deniand that
1 stand. 'While it is tho duty
effective and energetic steps for the
at home or abroad, on land or on sea, it is not to be overlooked that
belligerents likewise have rights under international law, and that
all discussions between them and the administration should he con
ducted on the principle of recognition of those rights, belonging to
the United States no less than to foreign nations, neutral or bellig
erent. While the ofllcial text of the reply from flennany has not been
given out, enough of it is made public to warrant the conclusion that
Germany has made concessions practically complying with American
demands recently formulated. The semi-oflleinl report is that Ger
many, in her instructions to her submarine commanders, agrees that
no more merchant ships shall be sunk without first being visited und
searched, with complete opportunity to all on hoard to escape, and
that Germany, while determined to continue the use of the submarine,
will restrict its use. It is, however, provided that if the seized mer
chantman nttempt to resist or to escape the modification of the
restriction will not be observed.
The intimation in the reply that if a break follow in diplomatic re
lations the American government will be held responsible is a mere
diplomatic bit of language. The real issue involved is in the safety
of American citizens on merchant or passenger vessels, and in attacks
npou them without warning. In the German reply there is an un
hdouted concession, so far as the semi-official news imparts its in
formation. The serious difficulty is in tho fact that, while there are concessions
they appear to be conditional, and if the break should come between
the two countries it will not be difficult to place the responsibility
upon the right shoulders. One of tho conditions of tho concessions
appears to he in the suggestion of Germany that if this government
demands of England the obligation demanded of Germany, then Ger
man will be more than satisfied. But the (piestions must not be mixed.
The administration may find itself facing a more serious difficulty
than was at first believed. But in
the dignity of the flag, the just rights of American citizens and pays
due regard to the fundamental principles of international law, ho
will be fully entitled to have tho American people standing behind him
' as a unit, ever hoping that peace with honor may be maintained.

Practical Economy
Baking powders made from alum or
phosphate may be bought for a trifle less
than Royal Baking Powder, which is made
from cream of tartar, derived from grapes.
Alum powders are not only cheap, but
they differ greatly in leavening power.
If a cheap baking powder is used for a
fine cake and the cake turns out a failuro
there is a waste of costly materials worth
more than a whole can of the cheap bak
ing powder.
Royal Baking Powder produces the
finest food, and its use therefore, results in
an actual saving.

t'nconllrmod reports are current to
night at lloiiuillas that bodies of ban
dlts are operating in numbers on the
Mexican side. The number of cavalry
men under present orders to proceed
towards the rivt-r indicates that no
effort will be made to pursue the buu
dlts Into Mexico unless they are ob
served near the border. In that evtnt

Nearly every man's is more or less so
where profits nro concerned.
A Bill to Protect the Public.
Representative Dan Y. Stephens of
Nebraska and Senator William F. Ash
urst of Arizona have introduced In
congress "a bill to protect tho public
against dishonest advertising and false
preteuscs in merchandising." A simi
lar measure was Introduced In the last
cougress by Representative Stevens of
New Hampshire.
It ought to be axiomatic that the pub
lic cannot profit through dishonesty or
through false pretenses. The Individ
ual may make a pecuniary gain;
thieves, burglars and confldenco men
occasionally escape paying tho penalty
of their crimes and arc pecuniarily bet
ter off. Uut the public, tho victims of
the successful criminals, loses.
Tho Stephens-Ashurst bill provides
for stuudurd and uniform prices on ar
ticles sold under a trademark or .spe
cial brnud, with the widest possible
publicity for buyers and sellers. Oppo
nents of tho hill adherents of dishon
est advertising and users of false pre
tenses In merchandising havo de
clared thnt It will cucQurnge monopoly
and prevent competition. They have
tried to make consumers bollevo that
It will Increase tho cost of living, that
It will raise tho price of everything
bold In any sort of store.
No Monopoly Possible.
Tho bill does uot encourago monop
oly, because, producers who havo a mo
nopoly of any particular line or who
make tin ngreemcut with a competitor
to maintain prices are barred from
taking advantage of tho privilege of
preventing discrimination by .contract
ing for the resale of their goods at unl
form prices. A monopoly, no matter
how It Is galued, caunot do business
under the terms of tho Stephens bill.
On tho other band, cutthroat compe
tition In price has always becu the
chief weapon of monopoly.
The hill will uot raise prices and in
crease the cost of living. Producers
already" have the right to sell their
goods nt wholesale tit any price they
can gej, nt what they are worth. Tho
prpposed legislation merely permits the
producer Iq control the retail price, and
If he puts this too high higher thau
the public Is willing to pay then his
goods will not be sold and he loses.
The cut price storekeeper that sells
goods ut a loss does not stand the loss;
ho passes It on to his customers. Wliat
bo loses on one nrtlclo Is made up, or
more than made up. ou another. The
use of cut prices ou standard articled
for the purpose of drawing customers
into tbo storo with the luteutlou of
selling them something else, that Is
where "dishonest advertising" Is found
und where "false pretenses In mer
chandising" Injure the public.
Cut rates by pig department stores
enable them to kill off tbo small store
and tbo small towns. Those residents
of rural communities, villages and the
lesser cities who want to seo their
Lome folks injured that the large cities
may grow richer aud larger should
naturally oppose the Stephens bill
Thoso who tleslro to see their own
vicissitudes prosper should support the
priuclplo of uniform standard prices.
Do the unusual it you would attract
attention, but make your doings worth
Some people can make befit their j
presence felt by their absence.
