GERARD DELIVERED NOTE
TO FOREIGN OFFICE
YESTERDAY
INTEREST TURNS
TO GERMAN REPLY
Officials Believe Submarine At
tacks Will Cease Till Mat
ter ta Decided.
Washington, May 15.-United States
officiait! (oday received word that Am
! ador Gerard lind presented the
American noto regarding the LUBI
tnnta tragedy and other occurcncea
in tile war zone, to the German gov-,
ernmcril's minister of foreign affairs
ut Berlin.
Anxiety over the delay in the note's
transmission is relieved. Interest is
awakened in Hie nature of Germany's
reply, lt would not be considered
surprising here if a response was not
received for eight days, It is thought
possible that Gerard might report
earlier on the manner tuo govern
ment, semi-official and the press re
ceived tho note. Meanwhile United
States officials feel confident there
will be no submarino attacks on
[(assenger ships while the questions
involved arc being resolved. This be
lief |s shared in German official cir
cles. Press dispatches direct from
Berlin today intimated that Germany
would willingly submit the questions
raised by the United States note to
arbitrations. It is intimntcd that ?bis
might ho seriously considered. There
in a grrnt growing conviction that a
war will be found to amicably settle
the differences between the United
States and Germany. Many sugges
tions have been made. One which
was given serious thought was a plan
to ref uso clearances papers to a bel
ligerent ships carry,.ig war.munitions
oi- absolute contraband If they also
carry' passengers. This Involves no
embargo and separates passenger and
contraband traffic.
London, May 15.-Thc Exchange
1 elcgraph company hoe received the
following mo8agc from Amsterdam:
"Telegram from Berlin states that
the Vosslsohe-Zoltung announces that
high government circles In Germany
favor j submission of tho question of
Lusitania's sinking and difficulties
with Amerlcnn arising therefrom to a
court of arbitration."
Washington, May 15.-Suggestion
of arbitration contained In today's
dispatches will be received among
officials h?rc with informal com
ment; thai such a course was among
the consid?rations which had occur
red at Wasington, but it was point
ed out lt probably would not be sat
isfactory unless assurances aro given
in the meantime that submarine war
fare on merchant ships be suspended.
Officials pointed out that unless that
be done, more lives might be lost
while arbitration is in progress.
Washington, May 15.-State depart
ment officials announced today that a
cablegram from Ambasador Gerard,
sent 'from Berlin at 7 o'clock last
night, said he had not received tho
American noto to Germany. Further
advices am expected soon, but offi
cials took steps to trace the ' note
and hasten it's delivery. .
Ambassador Page t Rome, cabled
last night that the note was relayed;
.there yesterday afternoon on Italian
telegraph lines and officials felt it
wa-; sn re lt would Teach Ambassador
Gerard today.
With the presentation of the note
to tho German foreign office the
United Sates will have rested its
cuBe and Germany is expected td
make the next move. It ls confident
ly expected that Germany will give
the matter immediate consideration.

"In regard to the report of Chief of
Police Cantwell, dated April 1915. to
you and by you transmitted to me.
This says: 'I beg to report the follow

"I. like you, received this report in
good faith, and took it to mean that
these parties had discontinued busi
ness as a result of the activities ot the
police squad. On looking into this,
however, I find that the statement of
Chief Cantwell is erroneous and mis
leading, and I will mention but two
instances-L. Williams, who died
somo months ago, and M. Hackett,
who was bumed out. Many of the
places said to be closed are selling
liquor.
, "This seems so serious to me that
it should demand an investigation, and
I suggest that you investigate this re
