FOR RESIGNING HIS POST
AS SECRETARY OF STATE

Wilson on the Proper Method of
Handling the Grave Controversy
... WASHINGTON, Juno 9. Former Secretary of State Bryan la about to
tiks the field In a campaign for peace.
Iff a Abatement Issued by him this afternoon he announced In plain terms
tltt he resigned from the Cabinet that ho might "employ as a private citizen
ih means which the President does not feel at liberty to employ."
The ex-Secretary declared that the two points upon which they differed
concerning tho right policy to pursue were his own Insistence on application
to the German-American case of his peace treaty principle calling for an
international Investigation of such controversies as the ono pending between
(he Berlin and Washington Governments. Tho other point was tho Secretary's
advocacy of action to prevent Americans from entering tho European war
joneon board belligerent or munition-carrying ships.
The President had balked at both these propositions.
The ex-Secretary's fight, It was learned, will take tho form of a plat
form campaign to crystallize public sentiment In favor or his policy to such an
extent us will lead to a Change of the President's mind to a conversion of tho
litter to the Bryan program.
It was understood he would remain in "Washington for two or three weeks
t wind up personal affairs, that ho and Mrs. Bryan will then pay a short
rfilt to their homo in Ashovllle, N. C.
The ex-Secretary's statement was given to the public Immediately fol
, Wing- his receipt of tho news that tho German note was In course of trans
mission to Berlin. It Is as follows:
"My reason for resigning is clearly stated in my letter of resignation,
..namely, that I may employ as a private citizen the means which the
President docs not feel at liberty to employ. I honor him for doing what
'fie believes to be right, and I am sure that he desires, as I do, to find a
peaceful solution qf the problem which has been created by the action of
'Two of the points upon which wc differ, each conscientious in con
I riction, are, first, as to the suggestion of investigation by an international
:.. tommigsion and, second, as to warning Americans against traveling on
" Mligercnt vessels or with cargoes of ammunition.

Jl&xWlIiinJr to apply in this case the principle to . whiclv,we.,nre bound, by.
f treaties to apply to disputes between the United States and the 30 countries
with which we have made treaties providing for investigation of all dis
putes of every character and nature.
J TREATIES MAKE WAR "IMPOSSIBLE"
t, "Those treaties, negotiated under this Administration, make war prac-
i tfcaljy impossible between this country and those 30 Governments represent
ing nearly three-fourth of all tho people of the world. Among the nations
With which we have treaties are Great Britain, France and Russia. No
Batter what disputes may arise between us and these treaty nations we
igrte that there shall be no declaration of war and no commencement of hos
tilities until the matters in dispute have been investigated by an interna
tional commission and a. year's time is allowed for investigation and report.
'This plan was offered to all the nations without any exceptions what
eter, and Germany was one of the nations that accepted the principle, being
He twelfth, I think, to accept. No treaty was actually entered into with
Germany, but I cannot see that that should stand in the way when both
Rations indorse the principle. I do not know whether Germany would ac
cept the offer, but our country should, in my judgment, make the offer.
8h an offer, if accepted, would at once relieve the tension and silence
n the jingoes who are demanding war,
"I believe that this nation should frankly state to Germany that we
ire willing to apply in this case the principles which we are bound by treaty
to apply to disputes between the United States and the 30 countries with
which we have mode treaties providing for investigation of all disputes, of
way .character nnditature.
"Germany has always been a friendly nation, and. a great many of our
pwple are of German ancestry; why should we not deal with-Germany ac
tonung io tnis plan to which the nation has pledged Its support!
TRAVEL ON BELLIGERENT SIIIPS
"The second point of difference is as to the course which should be pur
.tttdin regard to Americans traveling on belligerent ships or with, cargoes
: ammunition. Whv slinnlH nn Amprfrnn riftzpn hn nermlrrrrl In invnlva
i- ,Ms country in war by traveling on a belligerent ship when he knows that

; American citizen has a right, under international law, to travel on a bellig-
"tniBhip; the question is whether he ought not, out of consideration of his
oaary if not fc his own safety, avoid danger when avoidance is possible.

SCOFF AT RUMORED DEAL
OF SCHWAB WITH GERMANY
Steel Man's Associates Deny Sale of
BETHLEHEM, pa., June 9. Associates
of Charles M. Schwab, head of the Beth
lehem Steel Company and of tha Bethle-
ham Steel Corporation, declare there Is,
no foundation for any rumors that ho
Intends to sell to a syndicate of German
sympathizers. That sympathizers of tho
Kaiser have made overtures la possible,
but they aro not the kind regarded as
financially responsible, being, In fact, the
sort commonly called "hot-air artists."
To sell pethlohem to Germany nt pres
ent Is unthinkable, said a friend of Mr.
Schwab nt noon today, a man of largo
business affairs deeply Interested In the
progress of the plant.
Mr. Schwab has contracts from the Al
lies aggregating (100,000,000, which will
multiply If tho war keeps on. If ha
should sell out those contracts would
have to be fulfilled. The Bethlehem cor
poration Is a responsible concern and no
matter who tho owner would bo tho con
tracts would have to be carried out.
Should Germans buy It they would simply
have to make the Bhells and other muni,
tlons of war ordered by Lord Kitchener.
