Well, on the West side oft he sp ice on the East, there are three tables used as stalls by the vendors of vi getable products. On the East side between the shed and Hay Street, and ext< nding up to within sixty feel of it,deposI on the filthy gn iund were the vegetable products of vendors from the Current and Spanish Wells.

I thinkI hear them say by whatever God 111\ 1 hoose : •'this climate is fine, it beats the band but the habits of the people are beastly." Shame on us! Not because they say it, but because it is true. I he fees n ceived from the last named v< nd< irs are ample to justify a larger supply of tables.

Full Text Of American's Ultimatum
To Germany.
*
Washington, D. C. Wednesday
THE full text of America's
note io Germany, made
public here late to day, is
as follows:
Se< letary Lansing to Ambas
sador Gerard:
You are instructed to deliver
to the Secretary of Foreign Af
fairs a communication reading
as follows:
I did not fail to transmit im-
mediately, by telegraph, to my
government Vow Excellency's
note of the loth instant in re
gaid to certain attacks by Ger-
man Fubmarines, and psrticu
larly in regard to the disastrous
explosion which, on Man h .14
las', wrecked the French steam
ship Sussex in Oil English Chan-
nel. I have now the honor to
deliver, under instiuctions from
my government, the following
reply to Your Excellency:
Information now in the pos
session of t|1P government of
the United States fullv estab-
lishes the facts in the case of the
Sussex, and the inferences uhu h
my government has drawn from
that information jt regards as
confirmed bv the circumstance*
ret forth in Your Excellency's
note of die 10th instant. On I lie
H of March, 1916, at about
2.50 0clock in the afternoon,
Hie unarmed ateamer Sussex,
with 325 (,r ni((re passengers on
board, auioii" whom were a
number of American citixens,
was torpedoed while crossing
from Folkestone to Dieppe. The
Sussex had never been armed;
was a vessel known to be hab
itually used only for the eon
veyance of passengers across the
English Channel and was not
following (ho route taken by
troop ships or supply ships.
About eighty of her passengers,
non combatants of all ages and
sexes, including citizens of the
United States, were killed or
injured.
A careful, detailed and scru
pulously impartial investigation
by naval and military officers of
the United States has conclu
sively established the fact that
the Sussex was torpedoed with-
1 out warning or summons to sur
render, and that the torpedo
I'V which she was struck was
of German manufacture. In the
view of the government of the
United States these facts from
the hrst made the conclusion
that the torpedo was fired by a
German submarine unavoidable
It now considers that conclusion
substantiated by thestatements
of Your Excellency's note. A
full statement of the facts upon
which the government of the
United States has based its con
elusion is enclosed.
The government of the United J
Slates, after having given care
ful consideration to th^ note of
he Impeiial government of the
10th of April, regrets to state
that the impression made upon
it by the statements and pro
posals contained in that note is
that the Impeiial government
has failed to appreciate the gra-
vity of the situation which has
resulted, not alone from the at
tack on the Sussex, but from
the whole method and character
of submarine warfare as dis
closed by the unrestrained prac.
tice of the commandeis of Ger-
man undersea craft dining the
[last twelve months and more in
the indiscriminate destruction
of merchant vessels of all sorts,
nationalities and destinations.
If the sinking of the Sussex had
been an isolated case the gov
eminent of the United States
might find it possible to hope
that the officer who was respon-
sible for that act had wilfully
;iolnted his orders or bad been
criminally negligent in taking
none of the precautions they
prescribed, and that the ends
of justice might be satisfied by
imposing upon him an adequate
punishment, coupled with a for
mnl disavowal of the act and
payment of a suitable indemn
ity by the Imperial government.
But, though the attack upon the
Sussex was manifestly indefen-
sible and caused a loss of life so
tragical as to make it stand
forth as one of the most terrible
examples of the inhumanity of
submarine warfare as the com-
manders of German vessels are
conducting it, it unhappily does
not stand alone.
On the contrary, the govern
meat of the United States is
forced by recent events to con
elude that it is only one in
stance, even though one of the
most extreme and most distres
sing instances, of the deliberate
method and spirit of indiscrtm
iuate destruction of merchant
vessels of nil sorts, nationalities
and destinations which have be
come more and more immistak
able as the activity of German
undersea vessels of war has in
recent months been quickened
and extended.
The Imperial government
will recall that when, in I7eb-
ruary, 1915. it announced its
intention of treating the waters
surrounding GieaI Britain and
Ireland as embraced within the
seat of war and of destroying
all merchant ships owned by its
enemies that might be found
within that zone of danger, and
warned all vessels, neutral as
well as belligerent, to keep out
of the waters thus picscribedor
to enter them at their peril, the
government of the Unitetj
earnestly protested. Itt<
position thatsucb apclicj
not be pursued without CO
gross and palpable vi<
of the accepted law of nl
particularly if subnnrii I
were to be employed as
Struments, inasmuch as t'
prescribed by that law
founded on the princijj
humanity and establish
the protection of the li
non-combatants at sea.l
not in tin. nature of the cl
observed by such vessel
based its protest on the I
that persons of neutral n
alitv and vessel* of neutra
ership would be exposed
treme and intolerable risl
that no right to close an]
of the high seas could a
he asserted by the In
government in the drew
ces then existing. 1 he 1
nations in these matter'
which the government I
United States based that p
is not of recent origin or
ed upon merely arbitrary
ciplesset up by conventifl
is baced, on the contrary,
manifest principles of hut
and has long been estafa
with the approval and b
express assent of all civ
nations.

IS DIRT FATTENING!
22nd April 1916.
Editor of The Tribune,
Sir,
I a the past week I ve
been looking through the
Public Market and have no-
li. 1 d some things repugnant
to decency, which demand
the concentration of the vi-
iu il organs of the only pub-
lic hoard tli.it has escaped
the eagle eye of Mr. Chas.
Albury, M. H. A. (vide pro-
dings 1 Ion. I louse of As
. il.ly in 1 runic April 20th
1916 )
Do you ask, "\ hat things?
Well, on the West side oft he
sp ice on the East, there are
three tables used as stalls by
the vendors of vi getable pro-
ducts. On the East side be-
tween the shed and Hay
Street, and ext< nding up to
within sixty feel of it,depos-
I on the filthy gn iund were
the vegetable products of
vendors from the Current and
Spanish Wells.
I have hem in the Public
Markets of some of the civi-
the United
Stales, viz: Boston, New
York, Philadelphia, Balti-
mo e, Ch igo and also To-
ronto, Montri al and Quebec
and this, h|. ,t- m re not dis-
ci risible. How do you think
that strangers from these ci-
ties must ich abnorm-
al defects and gross neglect
of the laws of Hygiene. I
think- I hear them say by
whatever God 111- \ 1 hoose :
'this climate is fine, it beats
the band but the habits of
the people are beastly."
Shame on us! Not because
they say it, but because it is
true.
I he fees n ceived from the
last named v< nd< irs are am-
ple to justify a larger supply
of tables. Government House
and ground- can forego im-
provements for awhile, but
let these table- be made at
1 mi e, aud don't let us eat the
whole peck of dirt at once.
Yours,
