Wilson Taking Time to
Make His Reply
This statement watt ma?io by a
high vpartment
m re?
ply to President Will i i note
on the sinking of the I.usitania.
Throughout official circles th?? same
view prevailed, and the feeling- her?!
to-night is one of anxiety and I
ness. The tension has been ttri
to the breaking point.
Should another passenger ?
be torpodoed and more American
lives be lost there is nothing that
can prevent an immediate raptor?
between the United State! Ml i Ger
rr.any. President Wilson might ex?
ert every effort to maintain peaceful
relations, but officials here are prac?
tically unanimous in the belief that
l such a flame of indignation would
' spread through the nation as would
i leave him no alternative.
It is this feeling that grasps
j official Washington to-night. I* il
; said unofficially that Germany has
warned its submarine commanders
to sink no more pa ships.
But this information has not been
communicated to this govern
Officials here hope that it is tr le.
Wilson Takes Time.
Because of the aerioui and .'ntical
situation which the German reply
has brought about it was .said here
to-day that President Wilton ?rill
consider long and carefully what it
is expected will be the final warning
to the German government.
High officials said .that to meet
situation firmly the ? Dera?
tion was required. inis information
was given out so that a delay of a
week or more might not be mi?
preted as meaning that the 1
States intended in an.
fiom its position.
Secretary Lansing will not go to Cor

ident. Instead, he will remain at his

The contention of the I'ni'ed States,
ii is thought, will be that while our
complaints to Germany have been made
on legal grounds Germany's replies
heve been based on pleas of justifica?
tion and appeals for popular sympathy.
i Thus the two nations have been en

The United Stater, will insist, it Is
predicted, that Germany malte d reet

demands of the United States and that
it. be understood that no other form
of reply will be accepted
"We cannot argue over the points
contained in the German note," said an
i official to-day. "We cannot discuss
irrelevancies of this nature when we
are faced by the tremendous fact that
Germany has taken the lives of over 100
Americans, inoffensive passengers of
