The Republican seems to be very de
sirous of the success of this company
for the reason that practically all of
the printing is done by them, but it
should not lose siirht of the fact that

that a great part of the responsibility
would rest on The Republican.
It was brought to my notice quite a
number of times while there that your

I wish the Freeze company a ion? suc

THE INSIDE OF DIPLOMACY
To The Editor of The Tribune:
Thc militarists, the munitions deal
ers and the ammunition manufacturers
of this country are joining hands with
the thugs of Europe to drag us- into
war. There are .three classes of peo-
pie among us who see the matter dif-
ferently: "Cranks." like the writer,
whom a certain other class, who are
f , fc , of Americans proverbially
. t
ignorant of the history of any count ry
and who are easily led by the military
crowd to constitute themselves as
judgss of the patriotism of lhe"crank"
and other who believe as he.
Then there is a third class, satisfied,
like the hog with feet and snout in
the trough, with the knife a short dis
tance away. Like the hog. they do nct !
want to b2 bothered if their trough is
ifuil and the pen is fixed with a good j er; .Misses Hazel Harrison, Jiimreci

.,.ar on a m,sapprhension and
the erroneous interpretation placed up- .
on the German note by our President,
who made the error ? There is no need
of going to war; the German Govern
ment sent the fci lowing cablegram
when they learned that President -Wilson
broke off gelations:
"The general feeling in Germany
is regret that the American Presi
dent gave to the German note an
interpretation which was not intend
ed by Germany. The German mea
sures are not intended to damasre
neutrals, but were caused by the
necessity of defending Germany
against host'le measures which are
contrary to International Law, etc."
How many really know what that'
violation is and it really is a viola
tion by Etijrland yet thc ijrnorant
want war and tell us to "Stand by the
President." They did not stand by the
President in thrt Immigration Bill.
They forget or a-e ignorant of the vio
lation of International Law that is the
mother of all these other troubles, and
of our criminal supineness in not pro-
t testing at the mininjr of the North Sea.
j We are unneutral and every citizen
has a rirvht to protest against this
war, till war is declared. If wc go to
war, I would not want to be in the
boots of ho:e who caused it, when
the : i vtr. We want no entan
