VIGOROUS NOTE REQUIRES
PLEDGE TO OBEY SEA LA W;
ASKS PA YMENT FOR LIVES
WILSON REVERSES FOREIGN POLICY;
PLANS SWIFT ACTION AGAINST TEUTONS
[From Tho Tribune Bureau.}
Washington Dec. 8.?President Wilson's note to Austria on the
Ano na case is believed in Washington to-night to mark the end of the
international policies toward the Teutonic powers to which the admin,
istration thus far has been committed.
It is believed to mean that the President has decided to accept no
more dallying by the Germanic powers, to accept no more excuses, and
to admit that patience has cessed to be a virtue. It is believed to mean
that h; is prepared to uphold American rights, no matter what form
the controversy may take.
The most notable sign of this chango is the difference in the at?
mosphere which surrounds the departments dealing with the interna?
tional situation. The air of worry, of doubt and nervousness, has van?
ished. There is no change in the secrecy that surrounds the work of
these departments, but it appears a veil to cover activity instead of in?
decision. The administration seems to have decided on Ita course of
One manifestation of this was the meeting this afternoon of tho
Cabinet officials having charge of the activities against Germanic con?
spiracies in this country. After ?-nonths of delay, this conference took
t ? - vard the coordination of the work of the various
departments and began to lay out a consistent and vigorous campaign.
It was really an anti-hyphon council of war.
While supporters of th? administration are applauding the ap?
parent change of policy, ita opponents are giving to Mr Wilaon only
a minor portion of the credit for it. Some praise is bestowed on two
or three vigorous members of the Cabinet who have been restrained
with difficulty during tho long months of administration wavering,
but most declare the change has been forced as one alter another of
the policies on which Mr. Wilson had staked his success have failed,
and that the final touch was given within the last few days by the van?
ishing of the widely heralded "victory for Wilson diplomacy" in the
The growing pressure of public opinion on fust one point and then
another has undoubtedly had tremendous weight, and the admitted
weakening of the President's influence throughout the country, the
lack of any cohesive policy on which to rally his party in the session
of Congress just opened, and the need of some means of diverting the
attention of the nation from the administration's fai'ures in purely
national affairs are also considered to have counted heavily.

Waahington, Dec. 8.?The moat
draatic note yet sent by the State
Department to the Teutonic allies
was dispatched to Ambassador Pen
field last night for presentation to
the Austrian government. The
1'nlted ?States demands immediate
and complete satisfaction for the
violation tif American sea right? by
the Austrian submarine which ?sank
the Italian liner Ancona.
The demands include:
Disavowal by Auatria-Hungary of
the attack on the Ancona.
Assurances that Americsn rights
under international law will be re?
spected in the future.
Indemnity for American losaee.
Punishment of the commander of
This action followed yesterday's
( abinet session and was taken with?
out waiting for th? reply to the
State Department's request for fur?
ther elucidation of the official Aus?
trian explanation of the tragedy.
The evidence collected by the de?
partment, it is? declared, is so con
elusive that nothing Austria may
say in extenuation will ho consid?
Hitherto the note* to the Teutonic
allies have been expressed in lan?
guage which emphasized the desire
of the United States not to break off
relations with the offending nation.
The document sent yesterday is a
distinct departure, and. according to
officials who are usually well in?
formed, is by far the most vigorous
statement yet dispatched to Ger?
many or Austria-Hungary.

instructed Amba.?;sad<ir I'enfield to
i: quire of the Austrian government
M to several points in the explana?
tion. The object of this communi?
cation was to elicit a statement ? f
Austria's stand on the question of
safety for small boats. A message
from Vienna a few days later re?
quested more time, "?.wing to the
difficult i?-? of c'liritiiunication with
the s jbmarine."
The violation of international law
lies In the failure of the submarine
commander t?? provide for the safety
t.f the passenger*? before torpedoing
the vi-.?,.??'!. Not only were they "left
to the mercy of the seas in email
l??ats," which this government does
not consider "places of safety" with?
in the meaning of international law,
but many of them were atill on the
Ancona when she sank.
These facts are held to be suffi?
cient to justify the summary pro
.-??? of the State Department
without inquiring into the still
.'?-.ubtful t'.' to whether the
Ancona was warned, and whether or
not the lifeboats containing sur?
vivors were shelled by the sub
