THE WASHINGTON TIMES: SATURDAY? JUNE 8; 1918. LANSING ANSWERS IDGEI IK IANY' REPRISAL THREAT r UWGenninforcnment has threat ened to make reprisals against Aperierns unless this Government re awes) Capt. tieut. Frans Rlntelen, German spy serving sentence In this Bocntrr now. Answerlnc this threat, the State Department has informed Germany that any reprisals will Inevitably in vito "similar reciprocal action" upon great numbers of German subjects in this country. In a note verbal from the German government, submitted by the Swiss minister, April 20, Germany asked that Rlntelen be exchanged for an al leged American, Siegfried Paul Ion don, convicted of crime at Warsaw. Threat of nrprlsals. "In order to lend greater emphasis to the protests which have been lodged with the American Govern ment" (about Rlntelen). the German note said, "the German government contemplates some appropriate meas ures of reprisal. "It would however prefer to avoid the contingency that persons be taken and made to suffer because the Government of the United States was apparently not sufficiently cog nizant of its international obligations toward a German subject." Then followed tho suggestion for an exchange. Under date of June 4 Secretary Lansing answered Germany through the Swiss minister in which he said In part "the German government threatens measures of reprisal If Rln telen is not released or exchanged for London. Answer To Threat. "In reply I havo the honor to ad vise you that this Government can not consider the exchange of Rlnte len for London nor can It consider the release of Rlntelen nor any In terference with the due process of law in his case. "The threat of the German govern ment to retaliate by making Ameri cans In Germany suffer clearly Im plies that the Government proposes to adopt the principle that reprisals oc casioning physical suffering aro legit imate and necessary in order to en-i force demands Irom one belligerent to another. "The Government of the United States acknowledges no such prin ciple and would suggest that It would be wise for the German government to consider that if it acts upon that nrlncinle It wll be 'inevitably understood to Invite similar recip rocal action on the part of me United States with respect to the great numbers of German subjects In this country. It IS assumed tbat.the German government, before acting, will give due reflection and duo weight to this consideration." , Highly Connected.
