1?: ? GERMAN SITUATION IS MORE CRITICAL THAN AT ANY EORMER TIME * WASHINGTON, July 12.?The sit uation between the United States and Germany has taken on such a serious and critical character that the poli cy of th* American government will require lengthy and deliberate con sideration, that it may have the firm ness whioh the circumstances require, said a high official of the government today.

It is known, however, that both the Presi dent and Secretary of State are sore ly disappointed, and that they expect ed a more satisfactory reply. Many authorities here say that the United States has but two courses open, one of which would be a posi tive re-assertion of her position and then await the next act of Germany's i in violation of American rights, and ^ withdraw Ambassador James W. Ger ard from Berlin and give the Ger \ man Ambassador his passports. The ? other alternative would be to sever diplomatic intercourse at once. PRELATES ASK POPE TO ACT. Lonodn.
