Mr. Gerard Coltinues a sphynx. As
well try to interview the 'Eiffel tower
as obtain from the ex-ambassador any
exprcssion whatsoever on the fateful
week that followed the day of the (ilp
lomatic break between the United
States and Germany. Nor will any
one oflicially identifIed with Mir. Ger
ard say a word regarding the treat
ment accorded the representative of
the t'nited States by the German gov
This mitch, however, Is beyond any
doubt or debate, that the ex-ambassa
dor virtually was held a prisoner for
fully a week, that'the delivery of his
passports was delayed for four days,
and that some of the newspaper cor
respondents did not receive theirs
until four hours before the "Gerard
special" plulled out of Berlin.
M1r. Gerard Is known to have sent
to Washington during the last 48
houirs a lengthy, confidential mes

to Dispatch from Paris,
ParIs, Feb. 15.-That qluotation from
James W. Gerard's reply to the Ger
man "hostage threat' was all wrong.
Mr. Gerard did not say he would
"isit here until kingdom come."
What he really said-and this comes
from an unassailable source, indeed,
from one who hcard him say it, was:
"Then I'll stay here until hell
It was this typically American an
swer, it now develops, given with an
earnestness that left no room for
doubt, that convinced Count Montge
las, of the American department of
the imperial German foreign oillce,
that Mr. Gerard would "call" any
Wherefore Count Montgelas prom pt
ly threw into the riscard his threat to
hold American newspapermen as host

fusal to sign the amendment to the
