Diplomatit* Relations Resumed
WASH1NGT0N, Deo. 31.- Diplpmatic I
relations between Germany and thc
United Statcs were resumed officially |
late to-day, whcn Karl Lang, charge
d'affaircs from the Berlin govprnment, ;
prpsented his lctters of creder>ce and I

German Ambassador here, was handed I
Thc reception by Secretary Hughes
of Herr Lang was rather an unusual
incident in that Mr. Lang . r'ived in
Washington only last Wediiesday and
it has not been customarj [or new en
'?'? " their n denl ials in so
ierii ii of I imi after arriving.
The haste to have Mr. Lang recognize'd
as Germany's official diplomatic repre
sentative was occasioned by his desire
to bc received with other members of
the liplomatic corps by President ttar
ding at thc \',v. Year's reception np\t
Monday. lti accordancc with that de?
sire Slat? Departmenl offieials ar
ranged an audience with the Secretary
to day, and il is <? pccted that Mr.
Lang will !.<? recefved with the other
diplomats by President llarding on
Xcw Year's Day.
Thc new Austrian charge, Edgar A.
ii. Prochnik, also will be among those
[o be greeted by President Harding at
!.is reception. Mr. Prochnik, who has
been in thi? country for some timc
looking aftcr Austrian interests in an
unofficial capacity, presented his cre

P:>.-:ss:i.'i of oxisting rules of in
ternational law m to merchanl ;hip
rights in respeet to belligerent war
ships is said to have made il clear in
the drafting eomm itteo's Iclibe ral ion
that ii would bi practicalli impossible
for submersibles to adhere to these
rules without (he ut most risk to thi
underwater vessels. 1;' the ubnierai- j

bc undcr the first Rool resolution, to
abandon the proteetion of c.omplete
submersion and rise to identify *:? ap
proaching vessel with the obj tct of .
halting her for visil and search if
is a merchant craft, the strangcr, it
has been pointed out, might prove to
bo a hostile warship instead and ini-I
mediately open lire on the submarine.
Tba: possibility ?as brought up in |
I ie drafting comniittee, but the con :l i
sion was that submarines must take |
thal risk regardless of their great
vulnerability to gun firo. As Mr. Root j
pointed out before the full comniittee,
?t is said tho Germans held thal bi
cause submarines could not operate un?
dcr cruisor warfare rules except with]
cxtremo danger lo themsclves they j
fould not be required to conform to
thoso rules. Mr. Root said the pur
pose of his resolution was to express I
the direct "negation" of that German
contention, and the five powers agreed
in principle to thai purpo e.
To naval experts the formal publica-j
tion of the :.tenient of th?- five chiefj
naval powers as to what they under
stand the laws of warfare in this con
nection to be a:;d tiic positive assertion
that thoRO laws apply to all types of :
war craft will rnean tho practical abol- i
ishment of submarine operations \
against merchant craft, even without j
addition of the second Root proposal j
to declare such abolishmcnt as a new
precept of international law. They do '
not believe submarine'-' would be ein-|
