GRAY DEFINES DUTY
OF UNITED STATES
Justice Sayi it Hast Assert Vital
Character of Obligations of
DR. BERNARD DERN
BURO, Germany's unoffi
cial publicity agent in the
United States, is return
ing to Europe.
NOTE TO GERMAHY IS PRAISED
ATLANTIC CITT, X. J.. June 12.
Judge George Gray of Wilmington,
Del., former United States senator
and a member of the International
permanent court of arbitration under
The Hague conference, addressing
the New Jersey Bar association In
convention here today, asserted that
the time bad rome "as never before
in our eventful history" for Amer
ica to assert the vital character and
binding force "of the obligations
which International law has placed
upon belligerent nations.
The destruction of unarmed mer
chant ships without regard to the
lives of safety of non-combatant pas
sengers and crew was characterized
by Judge Oray as "so revolting to the
commonest Instincts of humanity
as to be presumably unthinkable In
tbt minds of those who framed this
convention" (at The Hague.)
Of President Wilson's note to Germany
Judge Oray had this to say:
"It ws wlln "a decent respect to the.
opinion of mankind' that our president
has with dignity, clearness and force
declared the obligation of this law in
Ills recent message to one of the wir
ring powers and has denounced the de
struction of an unarmed merchant ves
sel which involved the sacrifice of the
lives of Dior than l,tCO Innocent men,
women and children, including mora than
110 peaceable cltlsens of our own coun
try. We all know- bow the word'ng of
hla message haa stirred tba hearts ef
lila countrymen and aroused in his sup
port the patriotlo spirit of the whole na
tion for which he was spokesman.
''There wss the strength o! moderation
in Its tone that eef:tud the character of
great law abiding and justice loving
- people. Upon that Impregnable rock of
law and humanity the president has
taken his stand. In this we have given
and will continue to give him our confl-
. dence and support."
"Amid .all the savagery and lawless
ness which have been engendered by this
unprecedented strife," Judge Oray said,
referring to the European war. "respect
for international law has not entirely
r ' perished. Its precepts are still appealed
"to by the warring nations and its obit
. ' gallon are recognised even In their vlo
latlon. However this may be for those
- nations who are fortunate enough to be
' outside ef this terrible conflict and who
have proclaimed their neutrality, the
positive rules of International law are
not silent, but have become of tranacen-
TJme to Assert Tfeatral Rlha.
"Never before lit our eventful history
hss the time .been so opportune or the
'conditions to exigent 'fer eur country "t
r sssert the rights that belong to a neutral
' nation ' and to invoke the principles of
' that great body of law, whose existence
and development has been ' one of the
, crowning glories of our civilisation. It
is fur us aa never before to stand up for
, and assert the vital character and blnd-
Ing force ef the obligation which this
- law haa Imposed upon belligerent nations,
'.for the protection of neutral rights. In
doing so we are performing a service to
the world and humanity and even to the
' belligerent nations themselves."
In conclusion Judge Oray said:
"We stand todsy In the shadow of a
' treat world calamity and our hearts and
minds are tilled with serious thoughts
ii nd anxiety aa to the attitude of our
country as a neutral power. Whatever
position we .assume there Is no doubt
that we shall present a un'ted front to
the nations of the world. American tra
' dltlon forbid us to believe otherwise
' than that our position would be based
upon justice and that we shatt maintain
the right, aa Ood gives us to see the

Prlrea offered for horse by agents of

enough and strong enough for the trying
labor which he will have to perform in
the military service.
Experience quickly taught tho agents
that ordinary riders could not be de
pended upon to try out a large percent
age of the animals offered, and In con
sequence they began to employ profes
sional broncho busters. As a result there
Is gathered In Cheyenne a galaxy of
broncho busting stars such as never is
