A SPECIAL SESSION
Seattle. Wash.. June 3. Senator Al
bert B. Cummins of Iowa predicted last
night that President Wilson, would call
a special session of congress by Sep
tember. "I do not believe the presi
dent will care to assume entirely the
cares and responsibilities and prob
lems of our international relations but
that he will be glad to divide the bur
den with congress," said Senator Cum

in our relations with Europe during
the war has my hearty approval. The
people of the United States do not want
war and do not intend that there shall
be war. But tbey do intend that the
rights of neutral nations shall be ob
served and if they are not, they be
lieve measures should be taken to
make their protest effective. There are
means of doing this without going to
war. The reply of Germany to our
note on the sinking of merchant ships
carrying non-combatants I look upon
aa wholly irresponsive and unsatisfac
tory. While it leaves the way open
for future diplomatic exchanges it
clearly defines tbe issue. I am of the
opinion the American people are much
'jdias&tisfled with. Germany's reply."

Washin.gton.-H-C, June 3. Presi
dent Wilson, following his conference
