United States Does ivot inier
tion That Merchantmen A\
ing?Clash on Subji
Washington, Feb. 15.?The United
States, it was said oil high authority
at the state department today, concedes
that the entente allies are within
their rights under prevailing Inter-nntirmal
law in armine merchant
ships for defensive purposes, no mat-!
ter what conditions exist on the seas, j
Consequently it is admitted that
should the allies decline to adopt the j
American suggestion to disarm mer- j
chant men, founded primarily upon a .
desire to save the lives of innocent,
non-combatants, this government can |
not announce its approval of the is- j
tention of the Teutonic powers to tor- j
pedo without yarning after March 1 j

high officials are convinced that the ;
position of Germany and 'Austria is i
justified. State department officials j
now are engaged in trying to determine
just what will happen when the
commanders of German and Austrian
submarines begin to put their new instructions
into effect. It is said, too,
that the United States in the near fu/
ture may make some inquiries as to
.how the central powers intend to de- 1
termine whether merchantmen encountered
by iheir submarines are
In response to inquiries regarding!
this, it was said tonight by high Teu-1
tonic authority that the German and J
Austrian governments would under j
no consideration disregard the as-1
surances grven me unnea ouues m
regard to the conduct of submarine
warfare. Attention was called particularly
to the fact that the German
government had assured the United
States that liners would not be attacked
without warning. These assurances
it was said, had not been and would
not be repudiated, and for that reason
lijiers in service between the United
States and western Europe would not
be attacked without warning even if'
thev had defensive armament aboard
Teutonic officials were not inclined
to believe that such an issue would
ari6e as Great Britain had agreed that
its snips entering American waters
shall not be armed.
In both diplomatic and official circles
doubt even was expressed that
the new policy would in the slightest
way affect conditions in the Atlantic,
although it was admitted that should
toe Italian government persist in
?.rming its merchantmen difficulty
might arise in the Mediterranean.
State department officials recognize
that the action of the German and
Austrian governments is a development
of the recent American suggestions.
The department, however, does not
feel obliged to take any action, at least
vntil it has received replies to its own
innimiVLiiu II in n/ me ru^uu; aiutg * %.garding
the disarming of merchantmen.
Consideration is being given to the
advisability of amending the instructions
to port fviithorities in regard to
"The Siren's Song."
"The Siren's Song" can easily be
highly recomended as a masterpiece.
The story has in it many scenes
that are hair-raising, the most prom
inent of whic'n is the fight which
equals that in "The Spoilers" on board
an ocean-going steamer at the climax
of which the villian chrows the hero
from the deck, the latter falling a
distance of over 75 feet into the raging
ocean. To make this scene realistic
it was necessary for it to be taken
in the dead of night, and although j
there was a life-saving crew in a boat j
within a reasonable distance to pick !
him up, it took them over half an I
hour to find their man because of the j
denseness of the night.
The hero after being thrown overboard
floats all night, clinging to a
log in the water, is eventually picked j
*ip by some fishermen and landed in
a small town along the fishing banks, j
It is at this point of the story where :
the love element, which is one of rural *
simplicity and appealing to all, starts
its ever entwining way to the finish.

the rights of merc'nantmen to arm for
defensive purposes, and the limitations
of the armament.
ff.he state department has let it be
known that it had no intention of
changing the law on the subject of
arming merchant ships on its own account
and that such a move could be
made only with the consent of all powers
affected. Bui the United States
in consideration of the changed conditions
of naval warfare, can amend
its instructions to the port authorities.
It might, it was suggested, revise its
instructions so as to permit merchant
ships to clear with guns of a calibre i
useful solely for defensive purposes
and yet not large enough to be effective
against submarines at a distance
from which warning safely ;could
be given.
The Main Question. '
The entire matter, as the state deportment
now views u, turns about
the question of what constitutes defensive
armanent. It is admitted that
the line, between where defensiv powr
ceases and offensive power begins
is difficult to draw, and authorities
on international law in the department
say question will nave to De considered
by international conferences at
the conclusion of the war.
"It was with these questions in
mind," said a high official, "that the
I United States attempted to secure a
! temporary agreement in the nature
; of a modus vivendi yith the sole purpose
of saving life if that could be
The same official strongly indicated
that t'ne department virtually had decided
it would not during the course
of the war deny armed merchant ships
of the entente allies access to Ameriman
ports and that its efforts would
be confined to revising instructions to
port authorities with a view of making
sure that such ships are not offensively
Officials also indicated that they
would consider separately the class
of each armed ship coming into American
waters and that the action taken
would depend upon the facts. The
same course, it was said, will be pursued
in t'ne case of ships attacked or
engaged under the new German instructions.
High officials were not prepared '.o
pass on the question as to how tar
armed vessels would De jusunea in
resisting capture. They said that the
contention that merchant ships could
not resist at all might lead to t'ne
"absurd conclusion'' that a 50-foot
motor boat, armed with a 1-pounder
gun, could capture the biggest ocean
liner without risk to itself.

The senate last night passed the bill
by Senators Sherard and Christensen
looking to the creation of a school for
the training of the feebleminded. An
amendment by Senator Laney of Chesterfield
placed the supervision of the
school in the hands of the board of
regents of the State Hospital for the
Insane, rather than under a board of
trustees of five, as provided originally.
T.he senate refused to table this
amendment by a vote of 26 nays to 7

by Junius T. Liles of Orangeburg,

"The committee on ways and means

The act creating t'iiis institution

was devolved upon the State.

and 1915 were searched for amendments,
but none were discovered. 'Tlhe
amnedment passed in 1911 was vetoed
by the governor and was passed over
the veto early in the session of 1912,
but does not appear in the code. There
is some difference of opinion as to
whether this act or the code applies.

by IMfr. L. T. Mills and I desire

"It seems that not eevn the officials
of the institution knew that the
amendment had become a law. The
mistake on the part of the committee
was an honest one and resulted from

members of the committee on ways

"There seems to be a general impression
that the industrial school for

Prophecy Failed, But >*ot Until One
Year Later Did Her Great
Joy Come.
"You have about three months to
live,'' Miss Effie Garrick, of 1110
Huger St., Columbia, was told, after
she had undergone an operation for
stomach trouble, more than a year
ago. Miss Garrick says, "I did not die,
1 but I did continue to feel terriblv un|
til I recently found a means of combatting
my troubles."
Miss Garrick says she believes she
has at last found a means of restoring
her nealth, which, all too soon for her
years, has continually threatened to
break down completely during the
past ten years. She has been a sufferer
with stomach trouble and several
kindred ailments which reduced

almost wretched all the time, she said.
Tanlac, the master medicine, Misa
Garrick believes, will prove its superior
worth in her case, as it has in
hundreds of other cases in South Ca!olina.
Her statement follows:
"I suffered for ten years with stomach
trouble, indigestion, nervousness,
sleeplessness and awful headaches. My
system all the time was in a very
much run down condition. More than
a year ago I became so ill that I felt
1 would die. After I had undergone
an operation, I was told I could hardly
live more than three months.
"Of course, 1 did not die, but I did
continue to feel terribly. Nothing
seemed to relieve my troubles. I took
many kinds of medicines, but to no
avail. 1 would have headaches fre!
quently, and they were so painful I
thought I surely would go crazy.
While I had a headache, I was forced
ro stay in my bed. I would suffer with
a heavy, full feeling about my stomach
after eating, and I had little appetite.
I was forced to eat a -very light

"I decided to try Tanlac, as a sort
of forlorn hope, as I had read so much
about its wonderful effects. The first
bottle relieved my stomach trouble to
an extent I consider remarkable. I j
began to sleep well, and my appetite
I became enormous, so much did it improve.

so hungry I would have to get something
to eat. I.My system responded
