BERLIN WARNED NOT TO BE
The three salient paragraphs in the last United States
note to Germany, respecting submarine activities, sent to
Berlin on July 21, were as follow$:
Illegal and inhuman acta, however justifiable they may be
thought to be against an enemy who is believed to have acted in
contravention of law and humanity, are manifestly indefensible
when they deprive neutrals of their acknowledged rights, partic
ularly when they violate the right to life itself. If a belligerent can
not retaliate against an enemy without injuring the lives of neutrals
aa well as their property, humanity as well as justice and a due
regard for the dignity of neutral Powers should dictate that the
practice be discontinued. If persisted in it would in such circum
stances constitute an unpardonable offence against the sovereignty
of the neutral nation affected.
In the meantime the very value which this Government sets
upon the long and unbroken friendship between the people and Gov
ernment of the United States and the people and Government of the
German nation impels it to press very solemnly upon the Imperial
German Government the neceaaity for a scrupulous observance of
neutral rights in this critical matter.
Friendship itself prompts it to say to the Imperial Government
that repetition by the commanders of German naval vessels of acts
in contravention of those rights must be regarded by the Govern
ment of the United States, when they affect American citl-ene,
as deliberately unfriendly.
