(GIVING THOUGHT TO

WILSON WILL DISCUSS MATTER
WITH LANSING AND CABINET.
Assurance of No Undue Delay?Officials
Still Consider Situ
Cornish, X. H., July 13.?President
Wilson will not decide finally on tJ:e
text step in the German situation for
several days and not until he has ascertained
fully the ideas of Secretary
Lansing and other members of his
I cabinet. While his decision will finalI
2y|de:ermine the course of the United
I States, he is anxious to move delib
erately so t)':ere will be no possibility

flhe president today began receiving
telegrams from various individuals and
I organizations in different parts of the
I country. Although the tone of the
^messages varied, it was generally that

that the president would return to i

iisdicated that the president had ar-j

policy. A wftite house statement said:

with Germany over submarine

Hcase^a statement of the purpose of the
United States to assert its right no1:^ witostanding
Germany's inhibitions on
^Rhe use of belligerent ships -by Americans
seems most likely to be made in
nfc'-e next note. That such action would
Hi or necessarily lead to a rupture in
^felations is generally recognized, unan

M^tes has been contending should en
I Change of Tactics >"oted.
Officials point out that while the
ierman reply does not give any exlicit
assurances on the subject, tfae
Kual practice of G-erman submarine
P^mianders in the last two months
as been to visit neutral ships and
j give warning to belligerent merbantmen.
thus enabling crews to be
^sferred '.o boats in case destruc-!
tion of a vessel as a prize is deterj
mined upon. Consul General W'ashI
ington, at Livervool, today reported
such an instance. The American ship ,
Normandy was approached by a German
submarine, whose commahder examined
the ship's papers, and allowed i
her to proceed, notwithstanding that
the vessel carried a cargo of lumber, j
which is on the German contraband
list. The Normandy's crew later rescued
'chree 'Americans w*ho were
j aboard the Russian ship Leo, wmcn j
This and other instances in the last
two weeks are regarded there as evidence
of t e fact that the German
submarine commanders probably have
instructions to torpedo no ships without
warning. The view in official
quarters, therefore, is thai if the pres-1
ent policy of the German submarine
commanders is continued the next note
of the United States will not necessarily
lead to a break between the two
countries. TV.ere are some officials,
however, who regard the presen*: sit-!
uation as merely a truce during the!
pendency of negotiations.
S PREPARING NEW NOTE.
i Secretary of State Lansing Prepar-<
in?: Data For >ote In Answer
Washington, July 12.?Robert Lan-j
sing, secretary of state, spent most of j
today preparing data and opinions for i
the American reply to ti:e la:est note!
on submarine warfare. He indicated I
that he probably would not go to Cornish,
X. H., but that President Wilson
would return here at the end of the
The situation was described in official
quarters as critical and there was
no concealment of the fact t" at rela- j
tions between Germany and tne united j
States had become more strained than i
at- any time in their history. High
officials said the policy of the "American
government would be worked out
carefully, and that to meet the situation
'firmly, t)':e utmost deliberation
i.sf- Deliy Not Surrender.
ip.'Tnis information was given out so1
tfiat a delay of possibly a week or
inore in preparing an answer might
"not be misinterpreted as meaning that
.he United States intended to recedej
rrcm the position it had taken in the ;
two notes already sent to Berlin.
There was much informal discus-!
sion among- officials of the contents or |
ti.e German note. The trend of their I
opinions was that Ihe Oerman evasion
of the American argument had nar-,
rowed ':he field of-negotiations so that'
the next communication from the Cnit- ;
ed States must state to some extent j
j the American government's intentions j
I if its rights are 'violated further and ;
I declare : e position it will take with!
reference to Germany's refusal to dis- i
avow the sinking of the Lusitania.
3Iust Be Specific.
Something much more specific and j
j positive than has been said in the j
note which the United States has sent,
since ?:e submarine war zone was de-!
clared is expected.
Officials gave the impression that'
( here would b? no further argument
on the principles involved; that the'
note would be brief and state a gen-'
i eral nolicv which the American gov-i
eminent intends to follow with*re-!
i spect to vibrations in tl:e war zone.
In German quarters here the situa-,
tion is not viewed as critical.
Secretary Lansing soon will receive j
| Count von Bernstorff, at the ambas-'
sador's request, to discuss the situa-j
tion in general." It is believed the am-;
bassador will explain informally the!
German viewpoint and in turn will be i
informed of the gravity with which j
the United .States regards tire situa-!
iWill Maintain Dignity of United States.
Cornish, N. H., July 12.?Although
he does not consider the situation
critical, President Wilson, it was said;
here today, is not inclined to under-!
estimate the possibilities of the prob-i
lem presented by Germany's latest note (
An enhmsrine warfarp Thp r\rpsidpnt.!
it is declared, is firmly determined to
uphold tf-e dignity of the United States.
The president today received the official
text of the German note and immediately
began consideration of the
American reply. He instructed Secretary
Lansing to prepare a memorandum
on diplomatic problems involved.
It was said here tonight that there
is no present plan for Mr. Lansing to
come to Cornish and that Hie presi-j
dent will not hurry back to Washing-!
ton. His present plans are to return
to the capital at the end of this week
or t&e nrst or next, jrrooaoiy ne win
not have an opportunity to take the
situation up witFr his entire cabinet
before Tuesday of next week.
The president, believes, it was said,
that Mr. Lansing can work out his
views of the situation better in Washington,
where he has necessary data
and books. In deep seclusion the president
sat for several hours today reading
and re-reading the German note.
TTu'at- the - president will - continue *3iis ;
German policy along the lines already;
mapped out in the previous notes was
generally accepted here. It was understood
there is no immediate pros- j
pect of a diplomatic brrak with Ger-.
many and that whether he^e is a fu-1
ture break will depenr. largely upon
There was every ndication teat Mr.
Mi eitnofiAn ttt r_ I
VY IJSUX1 VN ill give Lin. onuQuuu ?n
tually his entire attention. When a
reply is dispatched the note will be j
largely his own work, al uough Secretary
Lansing will play an important;
advisory part and ot-^r cabinet members
will pass on the note.
Tonig: t it was said the president
sees no necessity for hurrying back to
the capital, because he can deliberate
much better here where he is free
from small worries and is able to give
undivided attention to the subject before
Up to the present lie has not told
anybody just how he views the note
and he wlil continue this policy until
he fully digests the words of the Ger-j
man government. The president was
in communication today with Col. ?.
M. House on e general situation. !
The president early todafy played his
best game of golf for montns. Just
before receiving the official text of the
note he defeated Dr. Carv T. Grayson,
who usually plays well up with Mr.
Mr. Wilson spent the evening indoors
with his family.
