Berlin's Summary of Reply to U. S. Note
Kerlin (via London), May 20. The Gem?an reply
tu the American note sent after the sinking of tlie Lusi
tania was signed by Herr von Jagow, the Foreign Min?
ister, at II o'clock last night and delivered to Ambassa?
dor (irrard this forenoon for transmission t<> Washing?
The note expresses Germany's regret for injuries
sustained by Americans ns a result of submarine and
aeroplane attacks, and offers compensation in eases in
which Germany is found to he in the wrong.
As indicated previously in these dispatches, the note
defers a direct answer to the questions raised by Presi?
dent Wilson, pending a further exchange of views. Ger?
many desires to establish whether the Lusitania vas a
defenceless merchant ship or was being used for the* trans?
portation of war munitions and soldiers, on which unsus?
pecting passengers were permitted to take passage to
safeguard the war materials.
The American representations regarding the torpe?
doing of the British steamer Falaba, in which an .Ameri?
can citizen lost his life, are answered with the statement
that it was intended to offer ample time for the passen
gi rs and crew to leave the ship. The action of the cap?
tain in attempting to escape, however, necessitated more
summary action. Even then the commander of the sub?
marine granted ten minutes for those on board to leave
the vessi 1. and subsequently extended the time to twenty
three minutes before sinking the ship.
Germany expresses regrets tor "the unintentional
attacks" on the American steamer dishing and the
Gulflight. The Cushing was attacked by German air?
men in the .Vorth Sea and the Gulflight was torpedoed
off the Scilly Islands. Germany disavows any intention
to attack harmless neutral craft. She offers to pay com?
pensation wherever she is found to be in the wrong and
to n fer doubtful cases to The Hague for a decision.
The passages in the American note concerning a
possible disavowal by Germany of intent to sink the
Lusitania and the discontinuance of her present practices
of submarine warfare are not mentioned specifically in
the reply. These two points, on which President Wilson
spoke so strongly in his note, receive little or no attention
except by inference. The note states that pending the
reply of the American government to the German
assumptions of fact regarding the real character of the
Lusitania and her cargo no attempt will be made to
answer Ihe demands contained in the American communi?
cation. These assumptions of fact are as follows:
The Lusitania was built as an auxiliary cruiser,
subsidized and carried on the navy lists as such.
?She carried, according to German information, two
guns mounted and concealed below decks.
British steamers sailing from New York, ac?
cording to information received from passengers
and other sources, repeatedly carried soldiers, artil?
lery, war supplies and contraband to England, the
Lusitania on this trip carrying specifically 5,400
cases of ammunition, in addition to other war sup?
plies and Canadian troops en route to the front.
Reference is here made to the fact that carrying ex?
plosives on passenger steamers is contrary to American
law. It is intimated that the German ?government would
he glad to receive information as to how it happened that
ammunition ^as permitted to he ?nipped on the Lusi?
tania, a vessel crowded with passengers. Strong phrases
are used regarding what is considered as apparently Ihe
deliberate policy of British shipping companies to pro
1 tect war shipments by embarking American passengers
on the same ships.
?Germany contends it is impossible to settle the ques?
tion whether proper opportunity was given to place the
! passengers and crew in safety until it is determined
whether the regulations .adopted after the sinking of the
Titanic regarding a proper supply of boats and water
i tight bulkheads, which are now a part of the American
law. were observed in the case of the Lusitania.
Finally, the .American mediatory proposals designed
! to end submarine warfare and the throttling of food sup
plies and other conditional contraband for Germany are
, recalled. 'The government expresses the desire to know
what steps, if any, have been taken to induce (treat Brit?
ain to embark on negotiations to this end, after ?Germany
indicated her willingness to discuss a settlement on this
The delivery of the note to Ambassador Gerard was
not attended with any special ceremony.
A functionary of the Foreign Office carried it
across the square to the American Embassy, where it un?
placed in the Ambassador's hands. The ?embassy staff
immediately began coding the message and transmitting
it to Washington. Mr. Gerard in the mean time called
I at the Foreign Office.

Washington, May 29.?Germany's reply to President
Wilson's note, as indicated in the summary cabled from Berlin, has
caused deep disappointment and seriously increased the tension

the sinking of the liner, is keeping his own counsel. But in official

In spite of Germany's previous breaches of international law
and neutral rights, it had been hoped here that a desire to retain
the friendship of America would lead her to some modification of
her undersea warfare and cause a conciliatory attitude. Instead,
Germany attempts to justify the drowning of the women and chil?
dren on the Lusitania on grounds which either are not in accordance
with facts known here or defy accepted international law. If the
summary is accurate, there is not a word in the Kaiser's reply even
acknowledging the request to suspend attacks on helpless mer?
