WASHINGTON, July 22.—The new
American note to Germany is on its
way to Berlin. It cleared from Wash
ington over the telegraph wires dur
ing the night and today is being
flashed over the cables to London and
thence to Copenhagen, where it goes
over land wires again to the German
foreign office. It should reach its des
tination tonight or early tomorrow. It
will probably be made public by mu
tual agreement with the Berlin for
eign office tomorrow or Saturday.
Then will follow a period of waiting
until the reply is' received.
Final on Submarine Warfare.
Concerning the future conduct of
German submarines the note does not
necessarily call for an answer as it
announces the intention of the United
States to regard any further violation
of international law resulting in the
loss of American lives as unfriendly.
On the other hand the American de-1
mands for a disavowal of any inten
tion to sink the Lusitania and a re
quest for reparation is renewed in
the new note. Very likely these with
other points, such as the willingness of
the United States to act as an inter

Violation Would Mean Action.
I It is generally agreed among of
ficials here, however, that any loss of
American lives in the meantime would
itself raise the question of action, ir
respective of any formal reply from
Germany. The American note is in
the nature of a final statement on the
principles involved in which the
United States takes the unalterable
position that the accepted rules of in
ternational law must govern the
rights of neutrals, irrespective of the
retaliatory measures of belligerents
against one another.

LONDON, July 22.—While prayers
for victory are being said throughout
Russia, the Austrians and Germans
continued their drive at Warsaw from
the north, west and south. Meanwhile
they are reaching farther north to

their advance guard is not more than
20 miles distant. The tone of dis
patches from Petrograd indicates
plainly that the country is aware of
the graveness of the military situa

the Polish capital, but the integrity
of the Russian army in Poland, the
