will sail for Maui about June 1. eather permitting, they will re

President Not Altogether Pleased
Washington The President frowns over some sections of the
German reply. It is probable, however, that he will wait and note
how the Germans live up to the assurances they have given. Danger
of immediate trouble is over in consequence of which Cabinet mem
hers have scattered for short vacations.
The President went over Germany's reply twice, noticing partic
ularly the parts where Berlin said she was willing to entertain plans
for i eace providing her national interests were safeguarded.
British Comment On Note
London The British reply to the peace suggestion in Germany's
note to America is that the British terms arc the same now as thej
were the dav the war began. Lord Cecil says that the German note
contains glaring misstatements concerning the actions of Great Bri
tain. Measures which Great Britain have taken with Germain have
been carried on with scrupulous regard for the lives and safety of
neutrals and no innocent blood has been shed in carrying out the
orders of the admiralty.
Orders By Wireless Telephone
Washington The navy department was in communication with
ships at sea yeuterday bv means of the wireless telephone system
whkh has been established throughout the department. The depart
ment was also in touch witu several land stations at the same time.
Orders were telephoned direct to the commanders of a number of
vessels at sea.

Thwe Must Be Peace
SHt Domingo An ultimatum of the United States has been de
livered to both factions in Santa Domingo that peace must be made
at ohcc or America will takr charge. The factions have censed fight
ing tu oscaiMi intervention.
Washington The German reply was received at the White Hmtise
today and President Wilson has spent a good deal of time personally
going over it. The official document shows no material change from
the version obtained by the newspapers yesterday, in fact does not
differ materially from reports which have leaked out from time to
time. The general tone of the note strengthens the probability that
relations will not be threatened, at least. for the present.
In going over the note President Wilson has paid particltiar at
tention to that part in which Germany refers to her willingness for
peace. In this portion the Kaiser's government indicated to the
United States that Germany was ready to entertain plans for peace,
provided her national interests are satisfactorily safeguarded, but that
there had been no response to this willingness by the Allies.
It is evident from the tone of guarded olficial disctisssion in
Washington that no further moves for peace will be made on the patt
of the United Spates until the Allies are ready to receive suggestions
which it is thought they arc not now willing to do because of their
unwillingness to meet the German demands.
The Reply In Germany
Berlin Public sentiment has settled to normal again after the
first flurry of excitement when the Gcruun reply to the United States
was published and thetc was an eager showing of extra newspapers
by the crowds.
French Press Is Uncertain
Paris The French press is varying in its conclusions as to the
German reply to the United States. Some Paris editorial writers con
sider that Germany has yielded, although with bad grace, to the in
sistent demands of the United States. Others regard the document
as an involved and tortuous refusal of the American demands.
What England Thinks Of It
London The Manchester Guardian expresses the belief today
that the German note is not a satisfactory reply to the American de
mands for modification of Germany's scheme of submarine warfare.
Fighting In France
A fresh German division was launched at the French lines but
was checked with great losses.
Mexican General Killed
Headquarters U. S. Army in Mexico Major How.e reports that

Break May Be Averted
Washington The threatened break with Germany may be avert
ed. The administration is prepared to accept Gcrmrny's promises at
their face value, and if the official text of Germany's answer agrees
with the unofficial version cabled from Berlin, the United States will
await the fulfillment of the Teuton pledges.
Secretary Lansing refused to discuss the subject yesterday except
to say that mistakes made by submarines are inadtuisiable.
1 he official text of the German note reached the State depart
ment yesterday afternoon. Last night the members of the German
Embassy were jubilant, expressing themselves as fully satisfied with

from the Washington correspondent
of Tin: Gaudkx Island:
Washington, I). C, April 27th:
The resignation of Judge Thomas
B. Stuart, which was sent byl.he
Judge to Senator Shafroth, has been
returned to him by the Senator with
the advice that he withdraw it and
reconcile himself to the difficulties
which he encounters in holding his
position. At the Department of
Justice it recently was stated that
the resignation of Judge Stuart had
not been received by any official of
the Department having jurisdiction
in the matter, and that no disposi
tion existed to call for Judge Stuart's
resignation. The department was
fully informed concerning the fric
tion existing between Judge Stuart
and some of the Territorial officials,
but the Department has taken no
sides or part in the controversy,
and is inclined not to allow interfer
