Can't Allow At
Of The
Washington, Feb. 24.?President
Wilson, at the end of two days of agitation
in congress for action warning
Americans ott armed mercnant vesscia,
wrote a letter tonight to Senator Stone,
chairman of the senate foreign relations
committee, stating that -he could
not consent to the abridgement of the
rights of American citizens in any respect.
"The honor and self-respect of the
nation is involved," he said. 'iWie covet
peace and shall preserve it at any cost
but the loss of honor."
The president expressed hope that explanation
of t-he declared intention of
the central powers to sink armed merchant
ships without warning would put
a ifferentd aspect on a situation wmu-. (
now seemed to presnt insuperable obsta- j
cles. "We have had no reason to question ;
their good faith or their fidelity to their j
promises in the past," he added, "and I;
for one feel confident that we shall
have none in the future."
The letter was in answer to one writ- j
ten late this afternoon by Senator;
Stone outlining the situation existing!
at the capitol, where since yesterday j
morning persistent demand has been j
made for some action which might lessen
the possibility of war between the
United States and Germany. The presi- j
dent's statement will be repeated to- j
morrow morning to Speaker Clark, Hep- j
resentative Kitchin, majority leader, and
Representative Flood, chairman of the
house foreign affairs committee, who
late today asked for an engagement in
order to explain the position in which j
the house finds itself and asked the
president for a statement of the administration's
The letter follows:
"My Dear Senator: I
"I very warmly appreciate your kind
and frank letter of today and feel that
it calls for an equally frank reply.
"You are right in assuming that I
shall do t v iytl.'injr in my power to keep
the United States out of the war. I
think the country will feel no uneasiness
about my course in that respect.
Through many anxious months I have
striven for that object, amidst difficulties
more manifold than can have been
apparent upon the surface; and so far I
have succeeded. I do not doubt that I
shall continue to succeed. The course
fhp r^ntral European powers
v> UlV.il kiiv
have announced their intention of following
in the future with regard to undersea
warfare seems for the moment
to threaten insuperable obstacles, but
its apparent meaning is so manifestly inconsistent
with explicit assurances recently
given by those powers with re- j
gard to their treatment of merchant ves- J
sels on the high seas that I must believe
that explanations wil presently ensue
which wi!? put a different aspect on
it. We have no reason to question their
good faith or their fidelity to their
promises in the past, and I, for one, feel
confident that we shall have none in i
- -
ine iuiuic.
"But in any evnt our duty is clear.
No nation, no group of nations, has
the right while war is in "progress to
alter or disregard the principles which
all nations have agreed upon in mitigation
of the horrors and sufferings of
war; and if the clear rights of American
citizens should ever unhappily be
abridged or denied by any such action,
we should, it seems to me, have in honor
no choice as to what our own course
should be.
"For my own part, I can not consent
to any abridgement of the rights of
American citizens in any respect. The
honor and self-respect of the nation is
involved. We covet peace and shall preserve
it at any cost but the loss of honor, j
? ? - ? j
?To forbid our people to exercise Pl^XA I
rights for fear we might be called upon
to vindicate them would be a deep hun
iliation, indeed. It would be an implicit.
all but explicit, acquiescence in
the violation of the rights of mankind I
everywhere and or" whatevr nation or al- j
legiance. It would be a deliberate ab- j
dication of our hitherto proud position j
as spokesman, even' amidst the turmoil !
of war, for the law and the right. It!

the whole fine fabric of international j
law might crumble under our hands
piece by piece. What we are contending
for in this matter is of the very
essence of the things that have made |
1 America a soverign nation. She can not'
yield them without conceding her own
impctency as a nation and making vir;

sition among the nations of the world.

The president wrote -his letter during 1
ihe afternoon, shutting himself up in his;
study while congressional leaders vain-J
ly attempted to get him on the tele-'

J the house leaders. He continued to

Carolina .delegation in congress when
rsked for an expression of opinion on
the armed merchantmen controversy
there would appear to be almost practical
unanimity among those who gave
their views for supporting the president.
Senator Tillman said: "I certainly
will support the president. He has more
! sense than all the other little fellows j
combined. I think he has patriotism
enough to satisfy any one; furthermore,
I I don't see why they don't let him
alone." ' j
Senator E. D. Smith said: "I will I
support the president until he has exhausted
every known resource at his
command to prevent war and until every |
remedy -has been fully exhausted. Until j
, that time shall arrive I do not think it
wise for congress to interfere."
T?pnrpcpnfative Nicholls said: "At |
this time I have not altogether made up J
my mind and for the presnt I would
prefer to have nothing to say on the
Congressman Lever said: "I think
the less interference by.congress with
the president at this most critical period
in thes diplomatic negotiations, the |
more likelihood there is of the president
being able to preserve the peace. IWIhen
the president has exhausted every diplo- |
matic effort and nothing can save the
country from war except the passage
of some such resolution as is proposed
i in that event it will be time for the 1
congress to act"
j Congressman Whaley said: '.This is
[ such an important matter that I do not 1

over the matter. I will be glad to ex- '

A certain famous statesman, when a I
young man, was for some time a clerk
in one of the courts of justice. In those j
days his temper sometimes got the better
of him, but on one occasion at least, j
his wit saved him from disgrace. This |
was when questioning a witness the lat-.
er made an impudent retort, whereupon
the clerk exclaimed angrily:
"It you are not more respectful ljj
shall kick you out of the room."
"Young man," said the judge, inte.rupting
the proceedings, "I would have

l 'ourt of justice and that if there is any
j-kicking to be done the court will do
