London, April 24. The Morning
Post in an editorial finds the Ameri

ment, inasmuch as it is the first de
termined effort on ths part ofxa neu
tral nation to deal with the new ele
ment in naval warfare."
Continuing the Post says:
"America is trying to forbid the use
of the submarine in the war upon com
merce. It does not appear, however,
that the American note defines the
rules that are to regulate submarine
warfare, although tho full text of the
note may reveal such a definition.
"All that Germany is required to
do at present is to abandon what, in
one word, is the blackest piracy, on
pain of severance of diplomatic rela
tions. Exactly what this phase im
plies remains to be seen. It does not
necessarily involve war, but it may

American expedition will be with

This was the unmistakable impression
at headquarters here when four mes
sages reporting the result of the con
ference between Chief of Staff Scott
and General Funston were forwarded
to the war department. Though army
heads had declared earlier that no de
cision had been reached, it was later
learned that the expedition's future
course had been decided and that the
decision had gone to Washington in

with the situation. So far as the
bandit was concerned, the expedition
ended several days ago. This authority
stated that sonce then, those in charge
of the expedition feared to undertake
a withdrawal under existing circum

Seed Corn Seized. 1
Practically all the seed corn in
Mexico has been seized for food, ac
cording to reports, making it impos-
ible to plant the 191G crop. With
cattle seized or slaughtered by sol
diers and bandits, the food situation
for the coming year appeared to be
hopeless. Even the peons were said
to be flocking to the cities for protec
tion from looting bands.
This week, it is belieed, will prove a
decisive one for the Carranza govern
ment. If it fails, War Minister Obre-
bon, the "strong man" of the present
cabinet, may attempt to seize the
reins! When the American expedition
