T. R. Says Wilson Has Broken
Down Code of International Rights
New York, Oct. 11. (Specisl Tele
gram.) Taking the exploits of the
German submarine U-53 off the
shores of America as his text Colonel
Roosevelt has launched another
broadside against Fresidei.t Wilson.
Mr. Roosevelt declares that the con
i.uct of the war has led to a "complete
breakdown of the code of interna
nonal rights." And this he blame
on "the Pontius Pilate-like construc
,:on which President Wilson has put
on neutrality." The sentence, "He
kept us out of war," which is one
of the chief arguments of the demo
cratic campaign, Colonel Roosevelt
describes as "the phrase of a coward"
and utterly misleading.
"President Wilson declared that the
war and the issues of right and wrong
involved in its conduct and methods
were of no concern to America, the
leading neutral," says Colonel Roose
velt. "He thereby put America in the po
sition of refusing to do her duty to
Jthers. He inspired conte.npt in oth
ers. This invited aggression by others.
In the face of his aggression he
speedily put America in a position 01
refusing to do her duty by her own
citizens. Step by step international
law has been broken down. By the
attacks of German submarines upon
merchantmen the lives of hundred'
of Americans were sacrificed in a
course which culminated in the sink
ing of the Lusitania. In a simila
fashion, the commercial rights ol
property upon the sea were invaded
by England and the whole structure i
of international law for the protection
or commerce and private property wa
broken down. The invasion of the
rights of men and women to then
lives was far mon serious than the
i'ivasion of property rights, and i
was this invasion that called for the
first and strongest action on our part
But if we had taken such action ii
vould have become our duty, a dutv
tl.en easily performed, to instanth
ai.d fully protect our property rights
Many men question whethc it will
ever again be safe for nations to be
come interdependent by allowing
themselves, so far as their tiecessariei
are concerned, to depend upon for
eign soi rees of supply.
"The theory of having each nation
ur group of nations build a Chinese
wall around its borders is being dis
cussed because of the complete break
oown of the code of inter tational
rights. The responsibility for this
breakdown rests primarily upon the
Pontius Pilate-like construction which
President Wilson has put upon neu
trality. "Now the war has been carried to
our very shores, there is no American
who does not realize the awful trag
edy of our indifference and inaction.
Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise
in time. By taking the right step
at the right time, America's influence
and leadership might have been made
a stabilizing force. President Wil
son's ignoble shirking of responsibil
ity has been clothed in an utterly mis
leading phrase, the phrase of a cow
ard, 'He kept us out of war." In ac
tual reality, war has been creeping
nearer and nearer until it stares at us
from just beyond our three-mile limit,
and we lace it without policy, plan,
purpose or preparation. No sane mar,
ran today be so blind as to believe
President Wilson's original statement
that the war was no concern of ours
Every thinking man must realize the
utter futility of a statesmanship with
out plan or policy until such facts as
these now stare us in the face.
