The proposals to be made to the six Latin-American dip lomats whose governments authorised them to cooperate with the United States to end Mexico's civil war, were 'discussed but Lansing maintained ali enee as to the program outlined. An unusual activity in the War and Navy departments ia evident. The order from General Scott, Chief or Staff, directing a battery of the Fifth Field Artillery to proceed from Ft.

At the War Department It ia stated the artillery was ordered at the re quest of the State Department, tan sing aaid he knew nothing about it Other department officials however aaid tbe action was prompted by the dealre to have tbe American border welt guarded in view of recent up risings at different points.

DENIES APPLICATION i OF FAMOUS TREATY Contends That Germany Had the Right to Send Frye to the Botton on Account of Ship's Carrying of Contraband. WASHINGTON. Aug. 4. Germany is unyielding in Its refusal to concede that the sinking of the American sail ing ship, William I Frye, by the aux iliary cruiser Print Kltel Frlederich In the South Atlantic ! .Inniifirv I waa in. violation of American rights under the Prussian-American treaty or of International taw. The reply to the last representa ! tlons of the United States to the Ger I man foreign office, in a note made public at the State Department, reit erated the previous justification of Germany's course and declares the I willingneas to pay for the ship and ' 'accepts the proposals, at first advanc-j led by the United States, that the a mount of damage be fixed by tfto ex-' perts, one to be selected from etch '' country. Such a sum the German government pledges to pay promptly wiUi the stip ulation, however, the payment will net be viewed as satisfaction for the violation of American rights. Should that method be unsatisfactory Ger many invites the United States tq ar bitrate at the Hague. The unoffTclai View here It thMep aration by a commission of experts will probably be- satisfactory to tbe United States with the express pro vision, however, that it is not a waiv er of treaty rights for which the Am erican government contends but ap plies only to the matter of damages. It is practically certain that if the United States allows the dispute to go to the Hague for an interpretation of tbe treaty provision, or continues an academic discussion of the princi ples through the channels of diploma cy, it will Insist that, meanwhile, Ger many refrain from violation of what I the United States contends Is its ! rights. j The entire dispute revolves about I Article 13, of tbe Prussian-American 'treaty of 1788, which was revised and I included In the treaty of 1828. That Article, the United States contends, specifically protected the Frye from i being sunk, although It does not pro- jtect the contraband cargo. Germany takea precisely the oppo site view and contends the Article only obligates her tp pay damages. Furthermore Germany replies that as the Frye's cargo of wheat waa des tined for England, it was contraband and tbe ablp liable to confiscation, and that aa an attempt to take the prise into a German court would im peril tbe captor, the destruction, of I the Frye "was according to the gen Ural principles of international law." "The right of slnklug," says the German note, "is not mentioned in the treaty, and therefore Is neither expressly permitted nor expressly pro hibited, ao on this point tbe party 1 stipulations must be supplemented by I the general rulea of International law. It Is not disputed by the American ' government that, according to the 1 general principles of international law I a belligerent is authorised In sinking a neutral vessel under almost any con ditions for the carrying of contra band."
