Berlin, July 9.-Gerraanys offer,
embodied in the reply to the Ameri
can note regarding the sinking of tho
Lusitania ar.J. submarine warfare
wliich was delivered to Ambassador
Gerard last night ts:
First: Reiterated assurance that
American ships engaged in legitimate
trade won't be interfered with nor tho
lives of Americana on neutral ship:;
Second: German submarines will
be instructed to allow American pas
* sanger ships to pass freely and safe
ly, Germany entertaining in return
thc confident hope that (ne American
government will see that these shipB
don't carry contraband: such ships
marks .and their arrival announced nt
a reasonable time in advance.
The same privilege is extended to
a reasonable number of neutral pas
senger ships udder the America;, flag
and should the number ot ships thus
available for passenger service prove
inadequate, Germany is willing to
permit America to piece four hostile
passenger steamers under the Ameri
can flag to ply between Nortb Ameri
ca and Europe under the same con
ditions . ?
Th<. text of the note was made pub
lic here tonight.
Washington, July 9.-The text of
the German roply to thc American
note on submarine warfare ls expect
ed here tomorrow or Sunday. Am
bassador Gerard cabled that today it
was delivered tr- bim last night and
was putting it in code.
President Wilson is duo in Wash
ington to discuss th? note Tuesday at
a cabinet meeting. No comment will
be made until the official text arrives.
Washington, July 9.-Germany's
reply to the Amorican note was de
liberad to Ambassador Gerard, last
night and should reach Washington
probably tomorrow and undoubtedly
by Sunday. President Wilson is ex
pected to ? return from Cornish and
lay a reply before the cabinet Tues
day. Officials realizo that there is
probably no , essential change from
the form in which the reply was
outlined recently. On the basis ot
that outline the United C .tea de
clined to comment on the negotia
tions, because lt was felt the
propas?is could net be accepted by
the United States without a sacrifice
o fneutral rights. Meanwhile there is
renewal of tension over tho next
atep if the German r*>ply is the esme
aa the unsatisfactory unofficial out
line. Clearly nnother critical stage
in the relations between Germany
taud the United States has been
reached. Some officials considered
that the United States might reject
thc Gorman propas?is and notify
Germany that the United States in
tended to insist on the principle of
'visit and search tor all unarmed Ves
sels ot any nation rnrryin' Ameri
cans and a specific violation of those
rights woulu'dotennine the next stop
of the American policy.
