GREAT 'BRITAIN S POSITION
AND GERMANY'S GRIEVANCE
Thursday is February 18, the date
on which the German government

rave notice that it would establish a

submarine blockade oi tne oriusn isi

ands. Nobody except the Germans
know how well prepared they may be
to make such a blockade effective.
Great Britain, while claiming the
threat is a bluff, is plainly uneasy;
and from what Germany has already
done it is doubtful if the warning
would have been issued if it had noth nothing
ing nothing but bluff behind it.

The blockade of Germany now in

force by Great Britain and France

h'mtp war meas-

I1U uusmn aj

ure. It is what the people of the

Krmth had to submit to fifty years

ago; the difference being enly that
the South was far more self-sustain

ing than any European country, and

the blockade would not have succeed

A it it hadn't been assisted by invas

ion in overwhelming force. The first
measure put in force by the United

States against Spain in 1898 was a
blockade that would have starved out
the Soanish army and all the Cuban

cities if the war had continued long
enough. ,
The style of blockade that Ger Germany
many Germany proposes to put in force has not
v. rpe.ofmized as legitimate. It

cannot be carried out without whole wholesale
sale wholesale slaughter of non-combatants,
possibly of neutrals as well as men of

the nations at war wun oermany.

Britain it is not likely to .recognize
anything less.
It is not possible to prophesy what
the' administration will do. One thing
is certain, that if' it decides on a vig vigorous
orous vigorous policy, the country will back it

up. it may suit a nmaman, nut lew

Americans like to feel that they are
considered a nation of cowards, and

if the Mexican policy is pursued to

ward Europe, the United States will

in a few months lose the respect of

the whole world, including its own

citizens. We can claim the virtue of
forbearance toward Mexico, but no

such claim will stand if we allow man-

sized nations to bully us.

white man was about to kill him, he
seized hold of a shotgun, which he
had been carrying, and shot him in
the back of the head. He took $18
from the dead man's pocket, and his
watch and went towards the camp.
Upon nearing the camp, he states that
he met A. G. Gardner, the brother,
and accompanied him for a short way
to hunt rabbits. Soon they returned
nearly to the camp, when Stover says
that he believed that his only possi

ble way of getting away was to kill
the other brother. He shot him also
in the back of the head while walk

ing toward the camp. Stover says he
took $22 from the man's pocket and?

made for the launch.

A Merry Birthday Party
In celebration of their birthdays,
Mrs. James Taylor and Mrs. C. H.
Lloyd, the former occurring Sunday
and the latter tomorrow, entertained
informally a dozen and a half special
friends last night at a children's
party. The tennis court at the home

of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Camp was th3
scene of the merriment of the evening.
The guests were asked to come dress dressed
ed dressed as school boys and girls, and on
arriving the teacher, Mrs. William
Hocker, began drilling them in the
rudiments of "reading, riting and
rithmitic." The children's ability to
learn was quite perceptible, but their
behavior was no less than tantalizing
to their exacting teacher, all of which
went to make the party one of great
pleasure.
At the close of school, lunch boxes
packed with "goodies" craved by
school children were distributed and
the relishing of their contents was
another enjoyable feature.
