Washington. July 2. Some men
choose their vocations when they are
about the age of three years. You've
seen a kid. who when he was almost
too am a 11 to reach the table would try
to amputate the cat's let? or perform
an appendix operation on a sister's
doll. All the family would stand
around admiring and choose the med
ical college he was going to.
Well, here's one who wasn't much
mora than snaggle toothed when he
was wiring the house and putting
batteries on all the doors. When he
had finished the sixth grade (without
honor) father said one night that the
only thing for Joe to do was to get in
an electric shop, and earn his own
living. I don't know that there ever
was a much more perfect moment in
that boy's life than when he started
down on Mont'ay morning with a tin
pall and a pair of overalls.
From twelve years to twenty-eight
years means a passage of time, but
Joe was still with the company as a
cable splicer. Advancement was there,
and he used to look pretty longingly
at jobs higher up, but a sixth grad3
graduations is not much of a founda
tion for promotion, is it?
That was just before United States
army packed up and went abroad for
a year or so. Joe went with them,
and left a star in the company's flag.
One day over there a German ma
chine gun carried away the bottom of
a ledge he was standing on, and with
it his right hand and the fingers of

The tramp was kicking out Six
knots. The spume spilled itself over
her bow for she was low in the water,
so low. indeed, that one could scarce
ly see the crazy design of black and
white that was laid on her sides. That
design showed on her superstructure
and smoke-stack, though, and one
only had to look at it and look at
the sand-bags that were piled up
around the bridge to know the seas
were unsafe for tramp steamer that
ran without flags by day or sailing
lights by nights.
On the bridge of steel and sand
bags the "old man" stood beside the
quartermaster at the wheel. These
were days when the "old man" was
to be found always on the bridge, for
the tramp was steaming slowly
through that danger zone where she
was liable to be sunk on sight.
Suddenly a submarine came to sur
face fifty yards to starboard of the
tramp. On her conning tower showed
the foul black cross of Germany. The
"old man" saw the submarine and the
cross upon her side Just as the look
out shouted a warning. And it took
him but a moment to perceive and de
termine and proceed to do.
"Put her over,": the ''old man"
shouted. His voice was harsh and
clear and certain.
The wheel spun through the fingers
of the quartermaster. The tramp
trembled and lurched and swung her
head. The spume slapped against her
harder than before and sloshed along
the fo'castle.
"Full speed ahead." the ''old man"
signalled to the 1 ngine room.
From behind his sand-bags the ''old
man" saw some of the crew of the U
boat fling themselves into the sea.
Then the tramp fell upon her victim.
There was a crunch of broken steel.
There was a cry upon the air. There
was a smudge of oil upon the waters.
'Ixwer away," the "old man" or
dered. His voice ri;ng with grim sat
isfa ction.
"Aye, aye, sir." Men sprang to a
boat. They freed the tackle and
swung her clear of the davits. They
leaped to the dripping seats and seized
the oars. As she touched the sea they
pushed her clear of the ship. Then
they began to row, for thus did men
of the merchant service show mercy
to the merciless. '
But not all men of the merchant
service escaped like that. Many went
to their death without warning or a
chance to get away. Others were sunk
in the boats they lowered. Some suc
ceeded in escaping and were torpedoed
again and yet again. The war went on.
The years went by. Ships by the
score fell victim to the enemy. Yet
not until 1917. when the war had been
going on for three years did any mer
chant seamen who had been torpedoed
refuse again to set to sea and during
the whole course of the war perhaps
not more than half a dozen men de
clined to sail again.
They wear no medals or rewards
these merchant seamen. They have
110 chevrons for war service, no dis
tinguishing marks for wounds receiv
ed. They pass quietly and unnoticed,
but it is proposed to given them rec
ognition now in a way that will last
for all time.
Except in New York anil S;in Fran
cisco there is little constructive work
done among seamen in the ports qf
the Fnited States. Now as recogni
tion of their bravery in the war it is
proposed to extend this work to every
salt and fresh water port of any size.
In New York, on the waterfront.
there stands a sixteen-story buildln;;
from the flag-pole of which day and
night there fly three flags. It is the
signal ZBH and if you search the
pages of the international code book
you will find that signal means "Wel
come."' The building Itself is the Sea
men's Church Institute and there last
year no less than 219, S72 lodgings were
provided for seamen and no less than
503,720 meals were served.
In i?an Francisco similar work has
been begun and the secretary in
charge is the Rev. Charles P. Deem,
formerly connected with the institute
in New York.
Now the Seamen's Church Instituta
is a work of the Episcopal church and
it is through the nation-wide cam
paign of the Episcopal church that it
is proposed to effect recognition of
the heroism of merchant seamen in
this war, for the nation-wide cam
paign is a campaign to enlarge the
work of the church and to spread the
Seamen's Institute idea to every large
port in the country will be considered
a necessary part of the work to come.
Just now a survey of the situation
is being made. ( The Rev. George W.
Davenport, executive secretary of the
New York Institute, who is associated
With the Rev. A. M. Mansfield, In
charge of the work, has returned from
a visit to the chief ports of the coun
try. He finds there is opportunity for
work in South Chicago, in Chicago
proper. In Gary and in all the lake
ports. Some work is being done in
Boston, and, as a result of his visit,
work has been started on a small
scale in Philadelphia. The water
front boarding houses situated in New
Orleans are reported to be anything
but what they should be and the op
portunity for service in every port
from San Diego to Seattle is great
Lastly, in Havana, which Bishop
Hulse says is the third largest port
on this side of the Atlantic, nothing
is being done for seafaring men.
The work that the Seamen's Church
Institute proposes to do through the
nation-wide campaign, is not rescue
work. Seamen from strange lands
come to strange ports. To give them
community life, to provide them with
a place where they may get clean
lodging and good meals, where they
may leave their baggage and receive
their mail, where they may read and
play billiards or smoke and write
home and receive their letters, where
they may get employment and attend
ance if they are sick, that is the aim
of the Seamen's Church Institute. In
New York that 'is what it does, and
through the nation-wide campaign of
the Episcopal church that is what it
proposes to do in every port.
"It is not rescue work," the Rev.
Mr. Davenport is careful to explain,
"but it is community work with a re
ligious foundation. Upon these men
religion is not forced. We do not seek
to convert them. We strive to serve
them in a Christian spirit."
But the figures of church attend
ance are striking. At 2S1 services
held last year in English the attend
ance was 14.389; at seventy Scandi
navian services the attendance was
977; at twenty-eight Lettish services
the attendance was 511; to two ser
vices in the Russian language there
came SS men and to three services in
Dutch came 75 men.
While six chaplains are in constant
attendance at the institute their duties
are mostly in the nature of social ser
vice. To their office, for their help,
men come in all their perplexities and
each is assisted to the utmost. Nor
is that all for there is a house ma
tron, too, whose duties it is to make
the men feel at home and to give to
the institute that intimate and spirit
ual touch that only a motherly woman
can give.
The educational activities of the in
stitute are no mean effort, either. To
28 public school lectures there came
3,162 men last year and there were
enrolled in the institute's school for
navigation and marine engineering no
less than 1,679 students.
Perhaps long before he can make
out the signal ZBH flying from the
flag-staff of the Seamen's Church In
stitute the sailorman is greeted in
New York harbor by a representative
of the institute itself, for each day
there goes out to meet Incoming
steamers the "J. Hooker Hammersley"
the Institute's tender. On board may
be a chaplain with newspapers and
magazines and a cordial invitation to
the sailor to make the tall sixteen -story
building his home until he sails
Nor is this all the work among sea
men, for 11 it should so Happen tnat

Washington, July 2. The Mexican
government has committed an overt
act of confiscation in preventing
American oil well drillers to work on
lands owned by American individuals
or companies by sending soldiers into
the fields and driving away the work
men, state department officials said to
day. Complaint was made to the Mex
ican government on April 2 of this
year, it was learned, against the re
fusal of the government to grant
permits to the oil companies to drill.
No answer was' received until after
the Juarez Incident, it was said, and
then President Carranza announced
no permits, provisional or other, would
be granted until the companies had
complied with the law. Compliance
with the. law. it was said by state
department officials would constitute
recognition by the companies that the
Mexican government owned the oil

Dennis, United Suites commercial at

of the economic situation in the larger
insular possession of Italy.
"The Italian mainland, just at pres

can exchange with us. America wants
her cheese and olive oil but the sup
ply of both these commodities is be
low the margin of home consump

oil, tomato paste, wool, sheep skins,
almonds, canned tunny-fish and pe

products she would gladly exchange for
American coal, shoes, agricultural im

Mexico City, July 2. The, number of
typhus cases in the capital' was fewer
during the first five months of 1919
lan for many previous years and the

The capital, with its abnormal pop
