Americans Right to Sell Arms.
Berlin. Feb. 13.—The Mexican situ
-fctlon came up for discussion in the
^Imperial parliament wfcen Dr. Alfred
/Zimmerman, under secretary, of the
estate: of foreign affairs, answered the
-lnterprellatlon by two national liberal
pleaders aa to whether Huerta had
•made any representation to Germany
as regards the raising of the embargo
on arms by the United States.
Dr.- Zimmerman declared that the
United' States, when it Informed Ger
many of the raising of the embargo,
expressed the conviction that nobody
outside of Mexico.could enforce a set
tlement of the country's difficulties.
The restoration of peace in Mexico,
he said, could be hoped for only if
the Mexican parties were allowed to
fight out their quarrels without inter
ference and that the raising of the
embargo merely gave American citi
zens the same light of selling arms
as was enjoyed by other nations.
The under secretary informed the
house that measures had been taken
to protect Germans In Mexico and
declared^ that Mexico will be held ful
ly responsible for ill property losses.

power to take this strategic 'point

Artillery men are now encamped
at Corosal and will remain in this
vicinity until the big guns which are
to be manned have been placed into

of the big waterway.
A prominent naval officer who
visited the canal zone recently de
clared that had the United States
failed to fortify the canal, this failure
might sometime have resulted In
making trouble between the United
States and England.
"Everything on the Atlantic coast
from Cuba to Trinidad is in the con
trol of .some other power," he said,
"and Great Britain owns most of

osition. Either we Will control that
canal or England will. Mind you, I
am not trying to get up any war
scare. cannot imagine a situation
which would bring about war be
tween us and the mother country.
Nevertheless, is it wise or sensible
to let any other power, no matter
how friendly our relations with it
may be, control that canal?
"Suppose Great Britain to be at
war with some other power and need
ing the Panama canal very much.
Such a case actually arose in 1882,
when she needed the Suez canal. She
simply took it.. It was, of course, a
violation of neutrality, but England's
motto has always been to hit first
and apologise afterward. A thing
which very few laymen ever under
stand when they discuss war is that
there is no such thing as politeness
in a fight. All the conventions ever
made at The Hague will go by the
board in a second if one nation de
clares war on another. If any na
tion needs that canal it will take it
if possible, and without waiting to
declare war. If England needed to
blow up the Gatun locks she would
do It and afterward apologize hum'
