Uphold the Prtiide&t Debate Afterwards.
With tha full texts of the Wilson note to
Germany, and also of the Bryan appeal to the
country before us, tha path of the patriotic
American citizen seems to us perfectly clear
Uphold the president and debate afterwards.
If there is a real issue between tha official
demand made for reparation for our Lusltanta
lessee and cessation of submarine attacks on
merchant vessels and tha principle of arbitration
as embodied In our peace treaties, there ta every
thing urgent In maintaining onr present rights
and nothing to be lost In deferring tha academic
. We believe that this will be tba attitude of
the country as a whole that even those who
are firmly committed to th principle of arbi
tration and disarmament oan see no advantage
to tha cause by forcing It at the critical moment
when the president is entitled to have the
united support of tha American people In his
determined effort to maintain peace by tha way
which ha believes most affective.
8o let as repeat: Uphold tha president
The American Rejoinder.
The note delivered at Berlin yesterday by
Ambassador Gerard, as a rejoinder to Minister
von Jagow'e reprasentatlons In connection with
submarine warfare, is a simple restatement of
tha American position. It contains noth
ing of threat or bluster, nor can He clearly
constructed phrases be twisted Into expressions
of offense. On the contrary, ita language is
straightforward, ita statements are earnest, Ita
references to the position of the Imperial Ger
man government era respectful, and Its whole
text Is susceptible only of interpretation as
plain-dealing on a matter so gravely affecting
the relations between two great nations, each
Jealous of its honor and determined to maintain
its dignity and prestige.
The text of the note gives occasion for won
der as to what Mr. Bryan found In It eo repug
nant to hie cherished Ideal of peace for all the
iworld. Especially aa compared with tha previ
ous note which he signed. It doea not support
his allegations aa to Us contents, nor warrant
tha forebodings he seema to harbor as to the
Study of the note Indicates the president's
sole purpoaa to be Insistence on tba careful ob
servance of an accepted principle predicated on
the requirements of humanity as well aa the
easence of Justice and equity. Its application
Is the feature that distinguishes modern from
barbaric war. Whether It Is to be abandoned
Is tha substance of the present protest made by
the United 8tates to Germany.
The president's renewal of tba proffer of
good offtcea in tha task of approaching Great
Britain on behalf of Germany proceeds on the
assumption of c6ntlnued American neutrality.
It comports with the attitude rigidly maintained
from the first by this country, and should
greatly strengthen our position In tha present
diplomatic proceedings. ;
Fooling1 with Fate.
Bumptious Mexican officials along tba bor
der line are tempting fate by threatening to In
terfere with the operations of the American Red
Cross society In Its efforts to provide for the
rel'ef of tha starving people of Mexico. Appar
ently blinded by the power they have arbitrarily
wielded for so long, these petty pretenders to
greatness are pushing their annoyance to the
utmost limit. The United States has not at
tempted to interfere with their political dis
putes, nor with the antics that have marked
their differences, except when they directly
affected Interests other than those peculiar to
Mexico alone. Taking advantage of this policy
of noninterference, the quarreling factions have
gone to such extremity that conditions In Mex
ico are no longer tolerable. Even now the
leaders are permitted to compose their disputes
on euch basis as they may, but the United States
has determined that this process shall not ba
allowed to progress at th risk of further starva
tion among the destitute people of that country.
Relief is to be given, and it , will ba extremely
unwise for any Mexican official to undertake to
prevent the furnishing of food to tha suffering
Inhabitants of Mexico.
Pan-American Trade. ' ,l- .
Senor Octavo Zayaa, Cuban delegate to the
Pan-American conference, which lately closed
its sessions in Washington and started on a tour
of some of the larger cities, very plainly touched
a vital point In any and all Pan-American trade
schemes In' an address at 8U Louis. "To carry
this traffic," satd he, "we must have ships, and
they must be your ships or ours." The answer
to this would seem to be a ship subsidy In some
form, and yet we are reminded that A very con
siderable traffic baa been, and Mill Is being car
ried on between the South American countries
and the United States, and not all of It la for
It would ha?e required more than magic to
have provided a fleet of American-owned ships
to carry all the traffic suddenly thrust upon the
open market as a result of the war. Nor Is It at
all likely such a fleet will be seen upon the seas
within a short time. Conditions In the ocean
freight industry are not, nor have they been of
late years, favorable to American shipping. Even
before the paseaga of tha seaman's bill by the
last congreaa much American capital was , in
vested la vessels of foreign register, because of
the greater profits that could ba obtained. Dm
ocratic euorte to improvise a tnercnent navy
failed because of the Inability of the party In Its
councils to decide on a measure that would even
approximately have filled the bill.
Haste will not solve the problem, but proper
action under well considered shipping laws may
bring about such conditions as will result In
South American trade being carried hither la
ahips owned in the United States. It Is not
likely, though, that the party that repealed the
canal tolls clause favoring our own ships will do
much to establish an American merchant
Pathetic beyond words is the demand of an
elderly lord tbat sons of lords who refute to
fight be compelled to work for their country.

Not long age. while riding in a Pullman ear, a
physician noticed that the window above the berth

A few weeks ago a child of 11 months died from
pulmonary tuberouloei. The source waa definitely
traced to the vlalt of an aunt who (topped off en bar
way to Colorado. She waa taken In by the kind
hearted parents, who gave her the beat they knew
screened a porch and nursed her and aa a conse
quence lost their only child within five months. The
mother now recalla with Indignation that this sister
coughed Into tha beddothee and aneesed without
holding the napkins provided for ber use over her
mouth and noee.
Dr. Lampson tens of a Twin woman who waa
found to be the center case in ber family, her bus.
band, two daughtera and son also being affected.
8he could aive no history of exposure, aa ahe had
never known tuberculosis among her family or her
friends. Tha possibility of house infection was ellm
inated by the fact that they ware the first and only
family to occupy tho house. But It waa discovered
that a year previous to the woman's illness a guest
had been entertained for three weeks. Thla man waa
sick and coughed badly, raised much sputum, which
ne aiscnarged Into his handkerchief, and. dried when
saturated over or under the kltchea stove. Within tha
year tha mother began to fall. Her husband began to
decline also and the children followed, until all five
were badly Infected. Though being virtually one of
the family for only three weeks, this guest had visited
the scourge on his hoets.
In rural districts where It Is not uMtornmon to hire
strangers for help and take them Into the family,
the head cf tha household should exercte great pro
tective caution. He should Inquire ef the applicant

whether ha coughs, U flushed afternoons and whether
he Is below normal weight If such a one was to enter

How can we minimise the -daogere arising from

it dirfioult for them to find entertainment or employ
ment outside a sanatorium. The publlo conscience
must be developed to the point that legislation for
uie aegregatlon and detention of eareleas con
sumptives shall be demanded.. Some states hava been
aggressive In health mattera. . .
The Maryland law cf 1904 and tbat of a number of
other states elnoa have recognised that the Indis
criminate coughing and careless disposal ef the sputum
or other Infectious dischsrgea ef a tuberculous patient
constitutes a menace to the health of bis neighbors and
family and hava provided for the prosecution and
punishment ef such offenders. The grounds for action
against the careless patient In all these laws, bow
ever, are those of nuisance. ' It ' waa found after
soma expertenoa, that for practical purposes a law
which provides for a court procedure under tha lawa
ef nuisance, with a simple fine oa eonvtctlon, la not
adequate to meet the needs of many oasea. More

detain tubercular patients. If desirable, seemed V be

waa New Jersey la 18 li Since then New Tork. Wis

sions and are now segregating their careless con
sumptives and detaining them until confide red aai

Traveling- Men's Protest.
NEW. YORK. June To the Editor of
The Bee: We wish to voice a protest
against the pernicious legislation exem
plified in the amendment of the Inter
state Commerce commission law intro
duced by Senator Cummins of Iowa aad
known as the . Cummins' amendment,
which recently becam operative.
This amendment will cost the commer.
ciai interests of the United States un
necessary millions without any apparent
benent except that derived by the rail
road coinpe.nl ea. The bill waa ruahed
through both the senate and the house
without debate and on its face indicate
the efforts of paid lobbyists rather than
intelligent consideration. '
The burden the law Imposes oa houses
that carry very valuable samples, such
as Jewelry, furs, etc.. Is shown In tho
fact that such houses carry floating In
surance, which covers all losses while
their traveler are on the road, whether
such losses occur while the baggaee Is
in the possession of the railroad com
panies, hotels or other points during the
period when the commercial travelers
ar engaged ta aelllng merchandise. The
insoranoe which this new law requires
ill not reduce the Insurance already
carried on samples by mercantile houses,
consequently the tea manifestly U unfair.
It may ba estimated that the commer
cial travelers of the United 8 tales, of
which there ar more than 800,000, con
tribute fully 00 per cent of tha passenger
and' freight revenue of the railroads of
this country. Commercial travelers are
really the advance agents of the rail-
roads and go out to secure orders for
freight which Is shipped over the rail
roads and for which the railroads exact
the highest poaalble rates. The railroads
do not grant any special concessions to
commercial travel era oa account of tha
role they play In securing business for
them. On tha contrary, railroads ar
constantly Increasing passenger rate
when possible as well as excess baggage
rate from time to time.
It may not be so visionary to predict
that if the heavy expenses of eomiTterolal
traveler are added to in the future s
they hav been in the past the method
of selling merchandise will reeotv Itself
tnt a mail order proposition, with" pho
tographs and full descriptions of the
articles to be sold to the trade being aent
out instead ef personal representatives
of booms whose expenses ar so heavy.

be that they will "kill the goose that
