Whereas the President of the United States did, on the tenth day of March, issue the following executive order: "All officials of the Government, civil, military, and naval, are hereby directed not only to observe the President's proclamation of neutrality in the pending war between Russia and Japan but also to abstain from either action or speech which can legitimately cause irritation to either of the combatants. The Government of the United States represents the people of the United States not only in the sincerity with which it is endeavoring to keep the scales of neutrality exact and even but in the sincerity with which it deplores the breaking out of the present war, and hopes that it will end at the earliest possible moment and with the smallest

Page  118 118 P'I(OCLAMATIONS, 1901. possible loss to those engaged. Such a war inevitably increases and inflames the susceptibilities of the combatants to anything in the nature of an injury or slight by outsiders. Too often combatants make conflicting claims as to the duties and obligations of neutrals, so that even when discharging these duties and obligations with scrupulous care it is diflicult to avoid giving offense to one or the other party; to such unavoidable causes of offense due to the performance of national duties there must not be added any avoidable causes. It is always unfortunate to bring (O(l World antipathies and jealousies into our life or by speech or conduct to excite anger and resentlment toward our nationt in friendly foreign lands, but in a Government employee whose ofticial position lmakes him in some sense the representative of the people the nlischief of such action is greatly increased. A strong and self-confident nation shoull be peculiarly careful not only of the rights but of the susceptibilities of its neighbors, and nowadays all of the nations of the world are neighblors one to the other. Courtesy, moderation, and self-restraint should mark international no less than private intercourse. All the oflliials of the -Governmlent, civil, military, and naval, are expected so to carry themselves both in act and in deed as to give no cause of just offense to the people of any foreign iand friendly power, and with all mlankind we are now in friendship.

Tal guerra, inevitablenente acentfia y aviva las susceptibilidads deI los combatientes baciendolos mtis sensibles a cualquiera cosa de los extrarlos que tenga el caractcr de ofensa 6 menosprecio. Con harta frecuencia los beligerantes formulan reclanaciones antag6nicas sobre las obligaciones y deberes de los neutrales, de tal suerte, que aun cumpliendose esos deberes y esas obligaciones con un cuidado escrupuloso, es dificil impedir que se infieran ofensas i una ( otra de las partes; A tales causas inevitables debidas al cumlplimiento de los deberes nacionalcs, no dcbe aiiadirse ninguna otra que pueda ser evitada. Siempre es lamentable atraer hacia nuestra vida las suspicacias y antipatlis del Viejo Miundo, c6 excitar en paises extranjcros, amiigos. el disgusto y los resentimicntos hacia nuestra naci6n, pero en un emplealdo del Gobierno, cuyo carficter oficial le hace en cierto modo representante del pueblo, aumentan considerablemente las malas consecuencias de tales acciones. Una naciin fuerte y confiada en st misma respeta los flerechos y no lhiere las susceptibilidades de sus vecinas; y en nuestros dfas son vecinas todas las naciones del mundo.
