PRESIDENT WILL NOT DE
LAY NOTE WHEN DOC
MENT COMPLETED
MINOR CHANGES
HAVE BEEN MADE
Legal Authorities Suggest Altera
tions Which Require Further
Consideration.
Washington?. Juno 7.-President
Wilson let lt he known today that the
note the United States will send to
Germany willi respect to submarine
warfare bad been prepared with the
utmost expedition und had not been
subjected to an hour's unnecessary de
lay since it was first drafted. The
president's desiro to have the docu
ment state explicitly the position of
the United States so that it cunnot
possibly be inlsundersood abroad or
invite protracted discussion is chiefly
responsible .' >r Hie fact that the note
has not gone yet.
I .egal ott! ce rs of the government ex
amined the note today und sent it to
President Wilson with som? changes
which may require further considera
tion by the president and cabinet to
morrow. High officials did not know
tonight Just when it would be cabled
to Ambassador Gerard. It was stated
tn the highes^ authority that as soon
as the president regarded the com
munication satisfactory in phraseol
ogy, lt would be transmitted.
Questions of such serious Import
sre involved that the president ls anx
ious thut tho communication not only
shall meet his own wishes, but shall
be unimpeachable from the point of
view of international law experts.
Special government agents corrob
orated every detail of the statement
of the first American note that the
Lusitania unarmed.
Washington, June 7.-The United
StateB' note to Germany concerning
the Lusitania disaster was virtually
ready for transmission to Berlin to
day. Tba president worked late last
night completing the note's phraseol
ogy.
The note is said to be a vigorous
reiteration of previous demands that
Germany exercise the right of ?dalt
and search before attacking uuarmed
merchantmen. Tho note has been de
layed to enable the president so to
phrase it that there could not be
room for doubt or further argument
concerning United States' attitude.
It will probably be cabled to Am
bassador Gerard tonight or early to
morrow at the earliest.
The German, ambassador, who ts
going to the summer embassy at
Cedarhurst, Long Island, continued
optimistic. He believes his con
ference with President Wilson result
ed In passing crises over the Lusi
tania incident.
Secretary Bryan conferred with
President Wilson at noon today, ttl
is understood they have gone over
the Anal draft of the note to Germany
with him. After leaving the presi
dent. Bryan refused to say whether

for transmission to Berlin or to dis
cuss the' subject In any way.

Young Canadian Aviator Escaped
After Victory In Most Haz

DARING ENGLISH PILOT
BROUGHT DOWN GER- j
MAN AIRSHIP
FIRST VICTORY
FOR AEROPLANE
Loudon, June 7.-For the first time
on record a Zeppelin in the air baa
been destroyed by an aviator in an
aeroplane. Reginald Warneford, a
young canadian nub-lieutenant in the
royal navy, performed the feat today,
ie ls somewhere within the British
Hues tonight while the Zeppelin,
wrecked, lies on the root aud grounds
of an orphanage near Ghent, falling
there, a blazing mass, after being1
struck by the aviator's bombs.
The Zeppelin's crew of 28 waa
killed, as were several occupants of
ho ornhanage buildings. Some be
lieve this la the Zeppelin that raided
the east coast of England last night.
The huge craft was sighted far away '
soon after dawn, apparently beaded
for home. The Zeppelin, flying com
paratively low, began to mount Im
mediately. The British wasp, which
wau speedier, climbed, finally reach
ing v. position over the German's vast,
hulk. From this Vantage point Warned
fo.-ed pierced the Zeppelin's shell re
peatedly with incendiary bombs.
The admiralty reports say the aero
plane was 6,000 feet up. To reaca
this altitude would require nearly 20
minutes. Meantime the Zeppelin
could drive approximately 16 miles.
Then followed the maneuvering tor
position and finally the dropping of
bombs from which dirigible tried vain*'
ly to escape. Mluor explosions oc
curred, then one of terrific force sad
the Zeppelin burst into flames.
Warneford mus", have been at close
range over the dirigible, for almost
simultaneously with the outburst Ute
aeroplane turned completely over. For
u moment he hung head down, the
machine pitching and tossing. By a
desperate effort Warneford righted
the machine far above the earth,
which he reached safely, landing be
hind the German lines.' He alighted
unhurt, then flew toward west
