FOR REPLYTO
UTMOST DELIBERATION WILL
BE REQUIRED TO MEET
SITUATION FIRMLY
REPLY MAY BE
DELAYED WEEK
Officials Think Note Should be
Final declaration of Attitude
of United States. .
Washington. July . 1.".-Secretary
.Lansing spent most of today prepar
ing- data anti opinions -for tire Ameri
can reply to tiie German note on sun
nis.! ii warfare. Me indicated ho
probably will not go to Cornish ns tho
president will probably return beiore
Ibo end of the week.
The situation is described ?n official
quarters as critical. There was no
concealment of the fact that rela
tions between the United States and
Germany are thc most strained in
history.
High officials said the American
policy will be worked out carefully.
That to meet the situation firmly the
utmost deliberation is required. It
. Was stated a delay of a week or more
cannot bo t?? terpreted as meaning the
United States will recede from' thc
position taken in the two previous
notes to Berlin.
There was ? much informal discus
sion of the German note. The trend
'of the opinions of omciaUiJthftLjtiUtLi
"German crasioti bas narrowed the
field of negotiations so that the next
communication from thc United
States must state to some extent
American intentions If her rights arc
further violated and declare the pos
ition it will take with reference to
Germany's refusal to disavow thc
sinking ot the Lusitania. German
quarters here don't regard the situa
tion as critical.
Washington, July 12.-Secretary
Lansing today began working on thc
draft of a note to bo sent to Ger
many expressing the attitude the
United States will take toward sub
marine warfare as lt affects neutral.
When draft is completed there will
bc a consultation between Lansing
and tho president, who will decido thc
policy to be pursued.
No Intimation 1B obtainable con
cerning tho course tho United States
will follow, but every Indication in
the official quarter is that the rela-.
ttons between Germany and the
United States is so strained that it is
necessary to weigh carefully the
phraseology and contents of the next
note. That there will bo no surren
der of American rights In the note
is deemed practically certain, .and it
also seems assured that the German
proposals for tho Immunity of
Americau passenger ships not car
rying contraband will be rejected.
Lansing wljl go to Cornish for a con
ference with the president as soon as
he ls prepared to draft hts reply un
less tiie president decides otherwise.
GOV. MANNING ON
THE GERMAN REPLY
Hopes President Will Find Way to
Avert War Which b Serious
Possibility.
Columbia, July 10.-G~v rnor Man
ging las* night gave out the fol
lowing m?teme?.t: "The German note
falls to compl.' with guarantees re
quired by President Wilson. The
president will insist on the protccUon
of American lives and American in
terests and v iii assert our rights un
der international law. Tho Insistence
may break diplomatic relations. I
hope' and believe the president will
find a way to avoid war and still
maintain tho honor of America, but
the people of this country trust his
Judgment sud will support him, what
ever the event."
