Nevertheless It meat not be imag

fore he took office he framed the
neutrality policy of the government
as counselor of the department of
state, and is generally credited with
having been the author of the phrase
a strict accountability" which was
used in one of the first Lusitania
notes. He wrote many drafts of notes
that never saw the president's eye
and he wrote many that were pigeon

true counselor he was always ready
with a comprehensive statement of
the alternatives involved.

idiosyncrasies for what they were
worth and like a faithful servant
did all he could do to keep relations

But the president, instead or ap

secretary of state, oftentimes
forgot he had one. He gave so

placed so much confidence In the

his pride and did his Job.
It was when the SLantung settle

U aSl Court Stops
Government Sale
Of German Ships
yv temporary injunction to prevent
the sale of the 3v former German
passenger liners recently offered by
the board, was granted today by asso
ciate Justice Bailey, of the district
supreme court.
Justice Bailey said that after a
careful examination of the statutes he
was of the, opinion that they did nq,t
show an intention on the part of the
congress to place in the president or
in the shipping board the power to
sell the shipa.
Application for the injunction was
made last Saturday by William Ran
dolph Hearst and hearings on It were
held last Monday while the snips
were being offered at public auction.
The board announced yesterday that
It bad decided to reject all of the bids
received. At the same time It asked
congress for authority to again offer
the ships at public auction.
Chairman Payne, of the shipping
board, announced that he would
recommend to the department of Jus
tice that an appeal from the tempo
rary injunction order be filed. Mean
time he said, it was expected that Mr
Hearst would be required to furnish
bond to protect the board against toss
bv reason of the ships lylne idle.
Listed "As Valueless."
Bids amounting to IS8819S0O were
received by the shipping board for
seven former German passenger ship
listed "as valueless," commissioner
Raymond B. Stevens, former vice
chairman of the board testified today
before the senate committee investi
gating the proposed sale of the once
German liners. Mr Stevens explained
that the board's policy was to charge
off five percent a year for deprecia
tion and that the board, therefore,
had held that ships 20 years old or
more were worthless.
The matter of fact, he said, the
seven ships referred to were easily

might also have tratnfaUy rephed that his garden gave him better vegetables
for lew BOBey, and that chopping np the face of the earth with a nee beats
hver pills for hver ills, and stiranlates the appetite for dinner.
Bat he mentioned the most important thing first the creative joy of
the work. He had takes a bit of hard, dry soil 20 feet square, he had
broken it and pulverised it and fertilized it with leaf meld and manure, and
planted it with 62 cents worth of high grade garden seed. And he, had seen
that bat of sterile earth transformed into a thing of living beauty, where
red tomatoes ripened on their furry vines, and ambitions batter beans grace
