' were current today, but were flatlj de nied on all sides, rne reporv ji said, grew out of the well known friende4ilpnt Mr. Brian and Mr. Dan iels. As a matter of fact, nine members o tbe cabinet stood solidly for the naesident's position as expressed in the note. Mr. Daniels was with those who differed with the secretary of state. Some members even advised a stronger Phraseology than the president used. but on the final discussion the decis ion to send the note was unanimous Bryan Explains Retirement. Mr. Bryan's statement follows. "My reason for resigning is clearly stated in my letter of resignation, namelj. that I may employ, as a pri vate citizen, the means which the president does not feel at liberty tv employ I honor him for doing wnji he believes to be right, and I am sure he desires, as I do, to And a peaceful solution of the problem which has beeu created by the action of the sub marines. "Two of the points on which we dif fer, each conscientious In his cobtk. twn are: "First as to the suggestion of Inves tigation by an international commis sion: and. "Sfccond. as to warning Americans against traveling on belligerent ves sels or with cargoes of ammunition. Should Apply Treaty Prindple." "I believe this nation should franklv state to Germany that we are willing to apply in this case the principle which we are bound by treaty to appiv t disputes between the United States and 30 countries with which we have made treaties providing for investi gation of all disputes of every cha -acter and nature. "These treaties, negotiated under this administration, make war practicallv impossible between this country and the 39 governments, representing nearly three-fourths of all the people of the world. "Among the nations with which we have these treaties are Great Britain. France and Russia. No matter what disputes may arise between us aid these treaty nations, we agree that there shall be no declaration and no commencement of hostilities until the matters in dispute have been investi gated by an international commission and a year's time is allowed for in vestigation and report. Germany Accepted Principle. This plan was offered to all the na tions without any exceptions whatever. and Germany was one of the nations that accepted the prindple, being the 12th, I think, to accept No treaty was actually entered into with Germany. but I cannot see that that should stand in the way when both nations endorsed the prindple. I do not know whether Germany would accept the offer, but our country should, in my judgment. make the offer. . "Offer Would Silence Jingoes. "Such an offer, if accepted, would at once relieve the tension and silen- . all the jingoes who are demanding war. Germany has always been t fremdly nation and a great many of our people are of German ancestr Why should we not deal with German) according to this plan to which tho nation has pledged its support" "The second point of difference is .13 to the course which should be pursued In regard to Americans traveling n belligerent ships or those carrying car goes of ammunltlon. Should Americans Avoid Danger. "Why should an American citizen be permitted to involve his country in a ar by traveling on a belligerent ship when he knows the ship will pass through a danger zone? The question is not whether an American citii" 1 has a right under international la v to travel on a belligerent ship. th question is whether be ought not. oat of consideration for his country, if not for his own safety, avoid danger when avoidance is possible "Obligation Is One-SIded." "It is a very one-sided citizenship that compels a government to go to war over a citizens rights, and yet re lieves the citizen of all obligations to consider his nation s welfare. I do not (Ceatinaed on Face 9, CoL 1).
