U. S. Note of Protest Called Most
Important Paper Since War Began
ROME. Jan. 2.-The newspaper Vita,
the organ of the Italian radicals, today
comments at considerable length on the
recent American note to Oreet Britain
on the subject of shipping.
"This is the most Important document
which haa appeared since the beglnnlnt
of the war." the paper says, "for tha ra
aon that It cornea from the greatest
power In the world not Involved In th
conflict. Neutrals nowadays must .he
In a position to enforce their rights. This
the United Ftatea ran do, for she haa
enormous Internets throughout the world,
and a formidable fleet.
"Fortunately," the paper . roes an.
"American Interests are Identical with
those of the entailer neutral powers.
These state can follow In the footsteps
of the ITnltnd States. Should the neutral
powers of Europe join hands, as hare
done the countries of Scandinavia, for
the protection of their maritime Interest,
their voice would be more convlncmg.
Experience shows that obeervano of the
rights of neutrality la contingent upon
the possession of material strength oh
the part of the neutral powers to enforce
their point of view." )
The Vita, expresses the hope that vthe
neutral states of Europe will take advan
tage of this opportunity to act together
with America, In Insisting that the rela
tions between neutrals and belligerent
be now settled on the broad hauls of all
neutrals to all belligerents. Otherwise,
the fatted States Individually wUI get
all the satisfaction, while the other
neutral powera would be worse off than
they ware before.
