Germany s long delayed and care* fully consldorcd reply to our govern ment'? pr?tent against 1I<T methods ot naval warfare hon brought keon dis appoliitmciit. lt wan expected to HIIOW an understanding of the American at titude and a disposition to meei UJ halfway, Th? nailon hoped that Ger many would at least disavow thu Lusitania outrage, and Indicate lo r desire t<? return lo humane and legal methods so far as her submarine pol icy directly ufTcctcd the United States. in:.tend, Minister Von J Ugo w's note ls au utmost Incredible document of evasion and of Insolence unconcealed by phrases ot mechanical courtesy. The one thing which aroused this nation to a fever beat, and the prin ciple of which is regarded as far more, vital than any controversy over mere property rights, was the sinking of Hie Lusitania, without warning, and the killing of I.4D0 people, more than Kio of them Ann rican citizens, lt was with that in mind particularly that President Wilson wrote, in his note of Muy 15: "lt (the United States gov ernment) confidently expects that the Imperial German Government will dis avow the acts of which the United states complains, that they will make reparation, so far as reparation is possible, for injuries which ure with out measure, and that they will take Immediate steps to prevent thc recur rence of anything so obviously sub versive nf the principles of warfare." Thc iirst (?erinn reply, making only tiie untrue comment that the Lusi tania utas armed, ignored that demand, and our government i ?mowed it "very earnestly and solemnly" on June 10. Now. Germany defends that act of assassination on the quibbling und ir relevant ground that Great lirltain ba' armed some of her merchantmen and encouraged them to defend themselves against submarines, and ma'utains that the submarine crew was justified in killing 1,400 noncombatants, to give them a chance to escape might have endangered tho score or so of Germans in the U boat. She adds the mocking comment that tho Lusitania rcnlly -shouldn't hav?? sunk so .quickly, anyway, and makes tho absurd and pettifogging Insinua tion that lt was tho cartridges on hoard that sent her to the bottom, rether than tho German torpedo. She reaches a climax in the astonishing d?claration that the Lusitania case shows "tn what jeopardizing of hu man lives thu manner of conducting war employed by our" adversaries leads." It ls impossible that the United States can bo satisfied with sucli heartless and lawless evasion. When it comos to other matters in volved, tho German position ls just as amuzing. President Wilson has de clared unconditionally that Americans will not surrender their inalienable right to sall the seas, on any peace ful vessels, whether under neutral or belligerent Hags. Germany refuses to admit this right, which lias never been questioned, und refuses to allow Amer icans to cross the Atlantic except on neutral ships. The plain inference ls that she reserves the right to destroy oilier passengor ship, flying enemy lings, au shu destroyed thc Lusitania, without warning. Tf wo want to cross tho Atlantic, she Informs us, we must do so in our own ships. Doubtless that would bo a wiso thing to do; but wc aro free agents in tho matter. She is willing to have us operate a "reasonable number" of passenger ships, and will oven allow us to buy some - from her enemies four to bo exact--if wo can't get them lu any other way. Those passenger ships, she warns us, must carry no contraband. As for American freighters ihat carry no passengers, they "will not be hindered in thc proscoutlon of legiti mate shipping." In German diplo matic phraseology, "legitimate" uoiuis "ion-contraband" although neutral ships ure legally soft no matter whut the cargoes, ano \ xpects our govern rnont *.o give her Assurances; In all rr. .cs, that there arc no contraband goods aboard. In other words. Germany pretends ihnt she owns the sea, and that Amer icans havo no right to sall lt except by her sufferance. Sho refuges to obey international law. ,Sho puts on us tho onus of "searching" ships, which belongs to her, and assumes t!ie right to destroy every ship under tho American flag if sho ?alls to ro <.< ive assurance that there is no con traband aboard, although that ls lu absolute disregard of our own rights as guaranteed b> the German-Ameri can treaties. She refuses to appolo glxe for killing the Americans on thc Lusitania, and refuses to make repara tion to their families. Tho situation ls serious. Unless Germany quickly changes hor front, there ls sparently nothing for Presi dent Wilson to do, In view of tho position he has taken with tho solid support of tho whole nation, but tu cat off diplomatic relations with Gcnsun/. .

Herr von JagOW does not fail to dwell upon tho Germun grievance against us fur sidl ing munitions of war to the allie;-, which lie knows is perfectly lawful; lie does not neglect to speak of the "thousands of German mothers and children robbed of breadwinners," those breadwinners being German sol diers conducting "a war of defense" by invading foreign States, and ho re news the complaint that British mer chunum n are armed and that they at tempt io ram German submarines, but he doon refuse- to (Hscusu law and right and he does ignore thc treaties between tlie United States and Prus sia which clearly cover every point now lu dispute.

Wc have not held that the presence of Americans on enemy ships protect ed the ehips. What wi- have main tained and still must maintain is that Americans in Buch cases, us in all others where they may bo engaged upon lawful errands, are protected by international law. We are not protect ing Hrltlsh ships. We arc protecting American rights and thc law of na tions. Herr von Jagow's suggestion of a method by which the United States may carry on a limited amount of commerce in the so-called German war zone, subject tu tho forbearance of the war lords who direct thc Ger man submarines, while interesting and, in a way, enlightening, is of course inadmissible. We do not hold our sea rights subject to anybody's .supcrvlHion. Wc are not likely to nar render any of those rights to a nr. .on that docs not have a single dread nought or cruiser on the ocean and whose boasted se.i power ls now ex erted only by the methods of thc foot pad and the bia? khander. Whatever may be thought or said of this note, it is always to be remem bered that actions speak louder than v '?rds. For the present wo should say that Germany is lo be judged more by its deeds than by it diplomacy. It bas not been sinking any Ainerian ships of late. It lias not been sinking without warning any enemy ships having Americans on bonrd. It has not assailed any more transatlantic tiucr.s. While these conditions may Irritate or exasperate, but they need not necessarily liad to a rupture. To discontinue national wrongdoing is one tiling. To apologize for it, even to a friend, lu thu presence of a peo l|lu infuriated by suffering and in llanied by falsehood, is another.
