London newspapers, commenting on the resig nation of W. J.

All ascrjbe the highest motives of patriot ism to president Wilson's acts. ot a Great Political Event. The Times in an editorial this morn ing says. "Mr. Bryan's resignation is a much more personal than political event. It is a dramatic Incident in a highly dra matic career, but It is not the turning point or even a milestone in the na tional policy. "It would argue. Indeed, a profound misunderstanding of current American conditions to ascribe to it one tithe the importance the world would naturally attach to the resignation of, say. Sir Edward Grey. It is not to be regarded as a break in the solid mass of popular opinion which Is steadfastly arrayed behind president Wilson and Is pre pared to support him In whatever course he decides to pursue. "Without knowing the contents of the latest note, or how It differs from the previous note, which Mr. Bryan signed. It may be assumed, since Mr. Bryan cites it as the occasion of his resignation, that It contains no aban donment or whittling down of the de mands made two weeks ago and con temptuously Ignored or evaded by Wll helmstrasse." People's Support of President. In its general comment on the cor respondence between president Wilson and Mr. Bryan, the Times assumes that "In every Important transaction the president has been In fact his own sec retary of state and that Mr. Bryan's de parture Implies no change in the opin ions which have shaped American pol icy under president Wilson, who, the Times says, "commands at this diffi cult moment the confidence of his countrymen in a measure rarely vouch safed to any president."

In an editorial. The paper declares that while Mr. Bryan Is a great political and party organizer, president Wilson is a far more com manding figure in statesmanship. "Ever since the war began," says the Chronicle, "president Wilson has had in ever increasing degree to take the burden of the department of state on his own shoulders. He will really be eased rather than hampered by Mr. Bryan's resignation." Great Is Power of U. S. "It would be premature to assume." says the Express editorially, "that there will be any formal breach be tween. Germany and the United States. Nobody here will attempt to Instruct the United States how to mind Its own business. We know America must al ways be on the side of liberty and progress and that he power to defend her dignity and her rights Is as great as her love of peace." The Post expresses the belief that war between the United States and Germany Is not inevitable and adds: "On the contrary, it is not Improb able war still may be avoided. A strong and self-respecting attitude Is more likely to avert war than conces sion and surrender. The Poet thinks the Incident must bring home afresh to America the necesity for some broader form of mili tary training, for war, being sometimes unavoidable even to the most innocent and harmless, it is Incumbent upon a nation to train Its youth to meet a calamity which it may not be possible to avoid" Bryan Was Central. Remarking that it was a legend of the German press that Mr. Bryan was a bitter enemy of Germany and a strong partisan of the allies, he has resigned rather than sign a document be fears may lead to war with Germany, the daily News says. "The truth is, of course, he never was anti-German or pro-English, but always a good American and a con firmed pacificist That the American press should assail Bryan so merci lessly suggests that the order In America which avoided European en tanglements is vanishing. No conti nent can isolate itself and live out Its political life without heed to what is passing elsewhere. V. S. Is Formidable nemy. "The United States has the greatest manufacturing plants in the world, the largest population of first class re cruiting material, the most inventive brains it Is, in fact, a formidable enemy. Germany trifled with the United States because it had two illus ions. One was that under no circum stances would America fight, and the other was that the German-American element would prevent the United States from taking- strong action by the menace of civil war. There no longer is room for either of these il lusions and, under the circumstances. It is reasonable to conclude that most serious efforts will be made to alert a rupture. Settlement Is hardly prac ticable, however, unless tactics of pro crastination are abandoned by Ger many and American ships and Ameri can lies made secure. "Those who are not parties to the dispute can safely leave it to president Wilson and the American people, who need neither advice nor enhortation from without- This duty of reticence is particularly obligatory on belliger ents, whose judgment hardly can be impartial and whose counsel might con fuse rather than illuminate." President's Position Strengthened. The Standard says editorially the re tirement of Mr. Bryan seems unlikely to produce any serious effect upon American opinion, "nor will It weaken president Allsona position, which, in deed, will be streftger without the pres ence of this subordinate who says the cause nearest his heart Is the preven tion of war" "The same cause," the paper con tinues, "is close to the hearts of mil lions of other Americans, Including the president, who is no more in sympathy with militarism than Mr. Bryan him self." Decisive Event In nistory. "One of the most decisive events ln the world conflict." Is what the Bven ing Star calls the resignation of Mr. Bryan. Continuing, the Evening Star says: "He (president Wilson) did not pro test against the awful crime of Belgian invasion witn its unnamaoie ouicnerrea and Its unspeakable abominations. Ha waited with a noble patience which to nations in agony seemed to border on perfidy. He strove to the last against the cruel Implacability of kaiserlsm and knltur. He labored to save Ger many from her helmeted tyrants and to persuade her to retrace her blood stained steps. "Historv will bear witness to the pu rity of his motives, and humanity to his aims." Commenting on the statement that secretary Bryan differed with presi dent Wilson regarding methods, the Evening Star says that Mr. Bryan's methods "are those which enabled Germany to pursue her policy of fright fulness for 16 months." and that pres ident Wilson's methods "involve deeds as well as words, action as well as talk." Germany Must Decide. In conclusion the paper says: "The issue is now clear and clean. Germany must face the certitude of American fixity of purpose. If she pursues her submarine policy America! will make good her warning. Germany must choose and choose at once There Is still a bare chance of peace If Ger many will bow before the law of na tiof Ji which America has slowly and re luctantly sworn to UDhold. If she stif fens her neck and hardens her heart there can only be one outcome." BERLIN PAPERS CAUTIOUS IN COMMENT UPON BRYAN Berlin, Germany, June 10. Caution Is to be observed In, the reserve with which Berlin newspapers comment upon the resignation of W. J. Bryan from the secretaryship of state of the United States. It was the big news of the day here Wednesday, overshadowing the war developments. The Lokal Anselger was the only paper to print what purports to have 'been Mr Bryan's letter to president Wilson, explaining his resignation. The newspaper questions the authen ticity of this letter The Vosslsche Zeltung assumes that president Wilson favored a sharper note to Germany than Mr. Bryan, but also that he does not desire war. "Probably America's foreign policy,' the paper says, "will be less English ' hereafter, although, of course. It will not be German or German-American, j bnt, we hope. American. That is more important than the wording of the communication " The Koelnische Zeitang, of Cologne, discussing Mr. Bryan's resignation, says 'It would be natural to connect the event with the diplomatic Interchange of views proceeding between the United States and Germany regarding the sinking of the Lusitanla. But It were well first to await first express con firmation of this from Washington" The MHtag Zeltung assumes that Mr. Bran wanted a sharper note against Germanv than president Wilson was willing to sanction, but It does not ex pe t a f nendl attitude towards Ger manv from the president- The paper concludes "It must be growing clear to some of the leading men in Vmerica that Amer ica m plaing an unenviable role in following in England s wake. America will certaml hae no success with us bi adopting Gnglaads stalwart tone.
