Not Law to Submarine.
DUTY OF GOVERNMENT CLEAR
WASHINGTON, March 7. Dis
cussing the armed ship Issue In the
senate today, Senator Sutherland of
Utah, a republican member of the
foreign relations committee, stood
squarely behind President Wilson In
his policy In dealing with Germany
In the submarine negotiations.
"I do not want war at any time,"
said Senator Sutherland, "and I pray
I God that It may not come now, but
I would rather have war with all Its
sacrifices and suffering than that
, this nation, with Its long history of
j heroism and glory, should play the
I poltroon when confronted by a su
preme national duty, because It
placea greater value upon its ease
than upon Its honor.
Sabmarlae Mast Yield to Law.
Senator Sutherland, In discussing the
legal status of armed merchant ships
under International law and the rela
tion thereto of the submarine, contended
that the aumbarlne must yield to the
law and not the law to the submarine.
If tha law yields to the submarine, he
said, and allows the underwater boat to
Sink vessels armed defensively only with
out warning and without giving passen
gers and crew a chance to get to a place
of safety. It will be Inviting the sinking
of unarmed ships aa well, since, ho said,
"it Is welt nigh Impossible for the offi
cers of a submarine to determine In ad
vance whether a given vessel Is armed
or not. The result will be that
unarmed vessels, while possessing Im
munity In theory, will have none In fact."
'The question next arises and, indeed.
It Is really the crucial question shall our
cilisena be officially advised to forbear
from traveling on belligerent merchant
ressela armed for defense only? Or, in
deed, shall we go further and forbid their
doing so under penalty for disobedience?
If I am correct In what I have atieady
said, namely, that them merchant ships
have the right to carry defensive arma
ment. It follows that such a ship has the
same status as though unarmed and thnt
the right of tho neutral cltlxen to Irons
port his goods or travel upon either Is
the decision of our supreme court. In i
great case decided many years ago and
never since overruled or modified.
Dnty of Government Clear.
"If. therefore, a cltlxen take pasnace
upon a ship so armed and lose hla life
by the sinking of the ship, without warn
ing, what must be the contention and
claim of this government? To my minU
clearly this: That the cltlxen In the exer
else of a clear right has been deprived
of his life by the deliberately Illegal act
of the belligerent government which sent
the submarine on Ha mission of death."
Senator Sutherland also opposed any
change In the rule with respect to the
sale of munitions of war or arming mer
chant ships for defense, asserting that
any such change now would ba an un
Food Prices in

WASHINGTON. March 7.-Enormous
Increases In food prices In European cap-1
Hals, particularly those of the Teutonic
allies, are ahown In a comparative state- I
merit completed today by the Department
of Labor's bureau of labor statistics. All
food is cheaper In the allies countries
than In Germany and Austria, but there
have been sharp rises In prices also in
England and France.
Vienna has suffered most of all. Meat
that sold a year ago at 20 cents a pound
Is selling now for 7 cents. Many other
foods have gone up In proportion. Bread
prices are not given.
In Berlin beef rose from S3 cents to 3.1
cents, veal from 12 to M centa and pork
from JO to 0 centa. Bacon Is selling at
it cents, twice as much as a year ago,
and ham has risen to W cents. Lard has
doubled In price. Eggs at 80 cents a
dosen are twice as hlgn as a year ago.
Prices In Great Britain are given as 44
per cent more than a year ago. The rise
In France has been about 33 per cent
and In Italy prices lave gone up very
slowly for tho last twelve months. Meats
alone showed an appreciable Increase.
Prices In The Netherlands, the only
neutral European country ahown, have
risen steadily within th year, but not so
rapidly as In th belligerent countries.
