the high seas, and there can be no acceptance by the government of
the United States of the proposals put forward by the German Imperial
government in reply to the second note.
There is no intention of the administration to force a crisis, but it
will be the endeavor of the State Department to make plain to Ger

' Germans Rearrange Plans

The German Note In Reply
Berlin Germany's reply to the American note relative to the sink
ing of the Lusitauia is a justification of submarine warfare against
merchantmen, as practiced by Germany, and a defense of. the sinking
of the Lusitauia.
The text of the renlv delivered yesterday to Ambassador Gerard
for transmission to Washington reiterates that everything possible will
be done to insure the safe passage through the war zone of American
ships and American passengers on neutral ships, but it is eloquently
silent as to the contention that the government of the United States
cannot recognize the authority of any power to abridge the rights of
Americans to travel on anv peaceful ship in the pursuit of legitimate
errands, whether under their own flag or that of belligerents.
As for the other funamental point of the American note, that un
armed merchantmen are by established usage and well-grounded inter
national law immune irom attack, whether they carry contraband mu
nitions of war or what not, the Imperial government flatly disagrees.
Annexation n South Africa
London As the result of five mouths fighting by British troops
