You are instructed to address a note to the Austro-Hungarian Minister ol Foreign Affairs, tcxtunlly as follow: "The Government of the United States has received the note of your Excellency relative to the .sinking of the Anconu which was delivered at Vienna on Dec. 15, 1915, and transmitted to Washington, and hus given the note immediate and careful consideration. "On Nov. 15, 1915, Baron Zwiedinek, 'he Charge il'Affaires of the Imperial ami Royal Government at Washington, transmit ted to the Department of State a report nf the Au.stro-Hungariun Admiralty with regard to the sinking of the steamship Ancona, in which it was admitted that the ves.-el was torpedoed after her engines had been stopped and when passengers were still on hoard. "This admission alone ia, in the view of the Government of the United States, sufficient to fix upon the commander of the submarine which fired the torpedo the responsibility for having wilfully violated the recognised law of nations and entirely diaregarded those humane principlea which every belligerent should observe in the conduct of war at aee. "In view of these admitted circumstances the Government of the United States feels justified in holding tliut the details of the sinking of the Ancona, the weight and character of the additional testimony corroborating the Admiralty's report and the number of Americans, killed or injured are in no way essential matters of discussion. The culpability of the communder is in any case established, and the undis puted fact is that citizens of the United States were killed, injured or put in jeopnrdy by his lawless act. "The rules of international luw ami the principles of humanity which were thus wilfully vtoUttd by the commander of the submarine have been so long and so universally recognized und arc so manifest from the standpoint of right and justice that the Government of the United States does not feel called upon to debate them and does not understand that the Imperial ami Royal Government questions or dis putes them. "The Government of the United State therefore finds no other course open to it but to hold the Imperial and Royal Government re sponsible for the act of ita naval commander and to renew the definite but respectful demanda made in ita communication of the 6th of De cember, 191 5. "It sincerely hope- that the forggoing .statement of its position will enable the Imperial and Royal Government to perceive the justice of those demands and to comply with them in the same spirit of frankness and with the same concern for the good relations now existing between the United States and Austria-Hungary which prompted the Govern ment of the United States to make them."
