CALLS FOR GUARANTEE
THAT AMERICAN RIGHTS
WiLL RE RESPECTED
REMINDS GERMANY
OF WARNING GIVEN
U. S. Will Leave Nothing Un
done to Protest Lives and ,
Property of American*.
Washington. May 13.-The United
States government today cabled to
Ambassador Gerard for presentation
to the German government a note
calling attention "to tho grave sit
uation which has resulted" from the
violation or American rights on the
high seas, culminating in thc sinking
of the Lusitania with a loss of more
than a hundred American Uves. Thc
communication expresses tho confi
dent expectation or tho United States
"that tho imperial German govern
ment will disavow the aots of which
the government or tho "nlted States
complains; that they will make re
paration so far as reparation is pos
sible for the Injuries which aro with
out meaaure; that they will tako im
mediate steps to prevent a recur
rence of .abythlmj ao cbviotmiv sut*
vers!ve of ~lb?' principles'* of warfa-e
for which thc imperial German gov '
ernment, in tho past has an wisely and
firmly contended " In conclusion the
noto states "the imperial German gov
ernment won't expect cae vVSrnment
of the United Stat ? to omit any word
or net necessary to the performance
of the sacrer? duty of maintaining the
rights ot thc United States and Its
citizens, and the safeguarding of
their free exercise and enjoyment."
The nota begln? with reference to
recent acts ot German authorities,
o nthe high seas, declaring it ia de
airable that the United Statea and
Germany should come to a clear and
full understanding. It mentions the
sinking of the Falaba; Gulfllght.
Lusitania and the torpedoing of the
dishing. Recalling the humane and
enlightened attitude hitherto assumed
by Germany, thc note says the Unit
ed States government -is loath to be
lieve-cannot bring itself to believe
that theBe acta, so contrary to the
rules, practices and spirit of modern
warfare could have the countenance
and action of the German government.
It reels, lt to be a duty to address the
German government, condemning
them, with "tmost frankness, in the
earnest hope that it ls not mistaken
in expecting action on the part of
Germany which will correct unfor
tunate impressions and vindicate that
government.
DlscuBsing the German method of
retaliation because "her enemy endeav
ored cut off Germany from all com
moree, the Unlted> 8tates declares i*.
gave a warning that Germany would
be held to strict accountability for the
IOSB ot American lives In the war
jones. It asserts that its objection
against the present method of attack
against the enemlea's : trade Hes In
the practical impossibility ot employ
ing submarines in the destruction
commerce without disregarding the
rules of fairness, justice and humanity
with modern opinion regards as im
perative.
It says tn two cases ships were de?
Strayed and no warning given. lt
bolo* Americans are - within their
rights when traveling the sea? In be
lieving their lives aro not endangered
by acta which are clear violation of
universally acknowledged Internation
al obligations and cortalnly In the con
fidence that their own government
will sustain them in the excise their
rights/.. The publication by the Ger
man embassy of aa advertisement,
warning Americans, cannot be ac
cepted aS an excuse, palliation or
abatement of reapooslblllty tor an act
dcstrucUon. The United Statea can
not believe the commanders ot the
vessels which committed these acta
of lawlessness did.so except under a
misapprehension of the orders issued
hy the imperial German naval author
ities. It assumes that submarine
commanders are expected to do noth
ing that would involve tho lives o?.
non-combatants. It expects, there
fore, that Germany will disavow the
ecu ot which the United States com
plains. . |t says the government and
