We publish this week another article by Mr. Edward Price

Bell, under the heading " How it Strikes an American." It is our intention to publish others which Mr. Bell is writing. We are delighted to be able to do this service to the cause of Anglo. American understanding. No one deserves to be listened to more carefully than Mr. Bell. He is trusted by both sides. In our opinion his article of this week is as valuable as was his examination last week of the Balfour Note. We are entirely at one with him about the necessity of co-operation between Englishmen and Americans as by far the most important thing in the world to-day. The Washington Conference proved that if we stand together nobody can stand against us. And, as we shall certainly stand for peace and not for war, the true way of peace is, in a word, Anglo-American friendship.
