WAR POLICIES OFJRTUGAL Did Not Declare Hostilities With Germany Sympathies of Republic With Entente. FOR CAUSE OF LIBERTY Teutons First Aggressors Made Constant Inroads on Portuguese Territory. LISBON, May 1. (Correspondence of the Associated press). His excel lency, the minister of foreign affairs of Portugal, Senor Don Augusto Luiz Vicera Soares, today received a rep resentative of tho Associated Press at the foreign office, now located in the famous Necessidades palace, where King Manuel and the royal family liv ed until the bombardment of the rev olutionary army and fleet drovo them into exile and made Portugal a re public. The private office of the minister is In one of the elaborate suites of apart ments formerly occupied by the dow ager queen, mother of former King Manual, and widow of King Carlos, who was shot when the revolution first broko ouL It was here that the min ister received the correspondent, and for half an hour talked of Portugal's part in the European war. Senor Soares is a distinguished lawyer of Portugal, and ibis is the fourth time he has occupied tho post of minister of foreign affairs under the republic. General War Policies. When the minister was asked as to the general policy of Portugal toward the war he said: "It should be borne in mind that it is nbt Portugal which has declared war on Germany and its allies, but Germany which has declared war on Portugal, basing this action on the question of German ships held in Por tuguese ports. But back of this direct Issue which brought on a state of war there were strong tendencies in Por tugal toward supporting the cause of the entente allies. First there was the traditional alliance Portugal has long naa witn ungmna, dating lor cen turies, and always bringing about mu tual action between tho countries on all the more vital questions of inter national relations. Then there was also the national sentiment of Portu gal as a Latin country to cast its lot with France and the other Latin coun tries threatened by Germany. And with these two main currents of sen timent, there was the feeling that the cause of the entente allies representd the cause of liberty, justice and hu manity, the sacredness of treaties and the protection of great and small states alike, as against a Teutonic pol icy of aggression, conquest and gen eral disregard of the restraints ol treaties ana of international law. "Some of our people," the minister went on, "felt that Portugal should adopt a policy similar to Spain, of strict neutrality Others urged that our policy should be like that of Ja pan, not participating in the war in Europe, but giving our chief attention to our colony in South Africa, as Ja pan is giving her chief attention to her interests in Asia. .Then there was the monarchist element still existing in Portugal, which favored joining the entente allies, but opposed everything' the republican government desired to do. But these were largely Individual shades of opinion, in the press and among the public. In the end, It was not the policy of Spain, or Japan, 01 any other country which prevailed, but the policy of Portugal herself, repub lican Portugal, designed to preserve our interests and protect our territory particularly our colonial possessions and at the same time preserve our tra ditional and racial relations with the countries favoring the entente alii ance." "Did Germany commit the first act of war?" the minister was asked. "Yes," he replied, "even before H" declaration of war and our formal rec ognition of a state of war, Germany was menacing us and committing war like acts against the frontiers of our colony in Agrica, where German East Africa is wedged in between our col onies and those of England and Bel gium. Hemmed in as she was, Ger many made constant inroads on our territory, although we were at that time out of the war. Our protests to Berlin brought tho reply that no in formation could be obtained from the German authorities in Africa. It was much the same as the fruitless efforts to secure Information on the sinking of ships by German submarines. And so our representatives received little or no satisfactory response, and this in the end contributed to our feeling that a state of war was prti.u -such intolerable conditions. "Going to var was a serious affa for Portugal," added the minister, "fo it is only six years since the monar- chy was replaced by a republic. The fearful wastefulness of the old rao narchial regime had left us a heavy financial indebtedness compared with tho resources of the country. More over, Portugal had not been at war for a hundred years, and It had got out of tho war of supporting a largo and ef fective army and navy. But with theso drawbacks, tho war was undertaken vigorously when once forced upon us. A largo and well disciplined army was organized and some 50,000 men have been sent to tho front, a considerable part of them to the western front In Europe, and a large force to our col ony in Africa." When tho minister was asked as to the military situation in Portugese Africa he said: Military Situation. "We have pushed forward into Ger man East Africa until our troops now hold a considerable portion of tho Germany colony. The, English and Belgian forces had already advanced had already advanced from the north and west, taking largo sections of country, so that with these losses of territory to our 'troops and to our al lies, Germany's colony of East Africa is practically at an end. There is still some resistance in the west, but in tho main German East Africa has passed into the possession of English, Bel gian and Portugese troops." "Then Portugal will have conquered possessions as the result of the war," was suggested. "Portugal actually occupies this ad ditional territory," replied the minis ter. "But Portugal has not gone Into the war In any spirit of conquest, and does not seek to enlarge tho colonial possessions she had at the outseL Tho one paramount desire of the country Is to preserve what it had at home and in the colonies, and whatever the inci dents of warfare may bring us in con quered territory, our chief preoccupa tion will be to preserve and guard what Portugal has had In the present, rather than to seek extensions of ter ritory. Wo are not in the war for conquest, but in defense of our posses sions and of the rights of ourselves and our allies." Insincere Peace Proposal. "What did Portugal think of Ger many's peace proposition?" the minis ter was asked. "We did not look upon It as a sin cere move toward peace," he replied, "but merely as a ruse de guerre; and it was for this reason we Joined with the other entente allies in formally re jecting the proposition. All the infor mation reaching us indicates that Ger manj 's military and economic forces are gradually being drained to the point of exhaustion, and it was this, no doubt, which led to the proposal of peace largely as a means of gain ing time. Their apprehension of what was coming has now been realized in the retreat of the German army along the western front, for the advices of our military advisers leave no doubt .as to its being a forced retreat before the overwhelming superiority of the entente forces, and not a strategic re tirement as they seek to make It ap pear. Our advices show, too, that their food condition is desperate and one of the neutral ministers, who has re cently spent a month in Berlin, told me the situation was exceedingly grave, particularly among the poorer classes, who are clamoring for the necessaries of life and against tho gov ernment. So that we feel with our allies that a slow wearing out of the German campaign is not far off, and that victory is assured to the entente nations." When the minister was asked as to President Wilson's proposal of a last ing league to ensure international peace, he said: """" President Wilson Approved. "President Wilson's proposal was re ceived with the most sympathetic ap proval in Portugal, and the discussion t aroused showed how popular feel ing was stirred by the noble senti ments it expressed for the inviolabil ity of treaties, the safe-guarding of inall states and nationalities, and the orinciples which Portugal, as a repub ic, feels for the rights of the people. As one of the entente allies, Portugal adhered to the reply made to the American note, in which the specific erms of the allies were made known, uid fitting recognition was given to i.i lmnincos 0f the president. It is to be hoped that the time will come later on when the proposal for perma nent world peace can be more fully, considered and carried into execution,' for it is at a time of great world up-' heavals like the present that new and great ideals spring into being and have an opportunity to be realized." "Has Portugal any special interest in those terms laid down by the allies as to the Dardanelles and Constantinople. Alsace-Lorraine, Poland, Serbia, etc.?" "Only In a general way, for these questions are rather remote from the foreign policy which is of direct and practical concern to Portugal. But Portugal adhered to the entire reply made by the entente allies, including the specific terms relating to the Dar danelles, Alsace-Lorraine, Poland, Ser .i.., iiuuiuy to express the ab oluie solidarity existing between the ntente allies. Being one of the allies, ,-e recognized the reply and the terms I Is the Work too Hard? Hl Many kinds of work have a H weakening effect on the kidneys. H Kidney trouble makes any kind of M work hard.

An appeal to more men to place themselves on "the honor roll" by entering officers' train ing camps was issued by the Military Training Camps association of tne United States tonight. "It is evident," said the appeal, "that many camps will not have their fill quotas. We should like to impress on the public the fact that tho men re sponding to this first call will be on the roll of honor in after years. They will have the feeling of pride that they did not wait for tho second or third call.

The house set a record today for quick action on major appropriations, completed de bate at a single brief session on an omnibus emergency war bill carrying nearly $3,000,000,000. It will be rass od tomorrow, probably, with only a few votes against it. No opposition was voiced during the discussion to day, and the only important change made was in the adoption of an amendment doubling the pay of en listed men in the army. Out of a total of $2,827,653,653 car ried by the bill. $2,320,591,907 is for the military estimate. For the navy 5503,399,673 is provided, and the re mainder goes to other departments for miscellaneous purchases, including extraordinary expenses due to the war. The bill Is based on departmental es timates totalling $3,460,340,968. The appropriation committee eliminated more than $600,000,000. The military appropriation, which is in addition to the regular annual army and fortification bills and the $3,000,000,000 proposed as an Initial appropriation for the new army, in cludes Items of $321,000,000 for cloth ing and camp and garrison equipage; $130,000,000 for ordnance stores; $39, 000,000 for automatic machine guns, $3,750,000 for civilian training camps; $609,000,000 for coast and insular for tifications, and $4,320,000 for fortify ing the Panama canal. More than $125,000,000 was added by the amendment, including the pay of enlisted men from $15 to $30 a month, a proposal already accepted by both senate and house as part of tho army draft bill, but transferred to the appropriation measure today to facili tate final enactment. It brings up to more than $325,000,000 the total ap propriation in the bill for army pay. In the aggregate of more than half a billion carried for the navy are in cluded items of $11,000,000 for avia tion; $7,77S,000 for outfits for newly! enlisted men; $200,000,000 for the ord nance bureau, including $60,000,000 fori i -J ' - ' .13gg5 ship ammunition, $3,000,00 for medi cal stores and supplies; and more than $25,000,000 for the marine corps, in cluding $7,343,000 for the military stores of that branch of the service. Among the miscellaneous items is one for additional guards for treasury department buildings throughout the country. A total of $435,000 goes to the bureau of standards, largely to cover standardization work carried on with the army and navy in the inter est of defense. uu GERMANY MODIFIES ORDER REGARDING THE AMERICANS LONDON, May 1. 6:03 p. m.
