I appeal to the American people to picture to themselves the plight Of these poor creatures and to endeavor in practical fashion to secure that they shall be saved from further avoidable suffering. Nothing that our people can do will remedy the frightful wrong that has been com mitted on these families. Nothing that can now be done by the civilized world, even if the neutral nations Of the civilized world should at last wake up to the performance Of the duty they have so shamefully failed to perform, can undo the dreadful wrong Of which these unhappy chil dren, these Old men and women, have been the victims. All that can be done surely should be done to ease their suffering. The part that Amer ica has played in this great tragedy is not an exalted part; and there is all the more reason why Americans should hold up the hands Of those Of their number who, like Mrs. Wharton, are endeavoring to some ex tent to remedy the national shortcomings. We owe to Mrs. Wharton all the assistance we can give. We owe this assistance to the good name Of America, and above all for the cause Of humanity we owe it to the chil dren,the women and the Old men who have suffered such dreadful wrong.
