"Tit issues involved," anid llerr von Jagow, "nre of such Importance, and the views In rotiard to the Lual laniu ahow auch variance, that the Herman government believed it cssen- i tlul lo attempt to establish a common bscia of fact before entering Into discussion of the isxsuos involved. "We h ipe and trust that the Amer ican governimnt will take the aume view of the case and let ua know in whit point their understanding on the facia differa from Jhe Herman view point as ef forth In the note, and in what points they ngree, before looking fur a direct answer to their communication. "The American note, of course, leavea the way open for a preliminary discussion of the iiuivtio aa suggeal ed In the German note. 1 hope that such a common basia of fact, once es tablished, may serve aa the ground work for further eonveraationa." The minister waa unwilling to give a more definite outline or to com ment on the suggestion that an ar rangement might be reached on a ba sia of an Inspection and certification by the American government of pas senger ahipa not carrying war cargoes, pointing out that he did not feel enti tled to anticipate, aa the other depart ments of the government must be heard before suggistions could I.e def initely taken up or discussed. Ir. von Jagow expressed pleasure nt the newspaper a nnouneement that American line steamers were not cur rying contraband, but he suggested the advisability of supplementing such neWspuper statements by more defi nite authoritative announcements. Replying tu a question, Dr. von Ja gow said that Hermany front-the out i set had been willing tn abandon her submarine warfare against merchant men in reaponsc to a return by Hrent Hrllaln to the regulations of war re garding contraband generally accept ed before the war, the specific con- that the well-meant proposals of thn I'nited Slates for u comprom',:c failed. 'The question of foodstuffs and raw materials," Dr. von Jagow said, "Is not a question of necessity for Her many, but one of principle. Hermany has shown, I think, that it cannot be starved out, by Hrent Britain's embar go on foodstuffs. We may be a little short of soimi or other particular food product, but we have enough to keep on the struggle. "The same i i true of raw materials with which, according to the London declaration, hi lligerents have no right lo Interfere when they are not specifi cally destined for Ihe urmed fore of un enemy. Hi rtn.'iny is able to get along, even If the Imports, of such ma terials are cut off. Hermany, how ever, objects to the cool nsumption of the ltritish cabinet that when it la un able to defeat the Merman armies le- uluitnrH of war. "The analogy of the besieged for tress does not apply to Hermany. The resident who settles in it fortress does so cognizant of the risk and I aware that he can leave before the) ) siege begins: but there ia no precedent! for the siege of the civilian population j of a whole nation In Its own land with no possibility of escaping'- Hermany i will fight ,'iuch an unjustified method' of war with nil the means at her dis-j posal." ; Dr. von Jagow said he had abao-l lately no Information regarding; tht j American steamer Nebraskan, which ( .iia damaged by an explosion In the ; Irish sea last week, and in the ab-j aence of any definite, news as to i whether the ship was torpedoed ori struck a mine, he declined to express j any opinion ai to the effect of the in-1 cideiit on the pending negotiations. ; The N.diraskan, in any event. Dr. von Jagnv said, was not torpedoed with design ly a Merman submarine., The Merman policy regarding neutral! shipping, even in the war zone, had J been enunciated clearly. There wasj no intention of attacking neutral i ships. "Are you an optimist or n pessimist: regarding the Merman-American sit-; Mutton ?' the correspondent asked as is limitel and rather unsatisfactory.; There are no means for cabling, and the open wireless messages we are! sending are read or interfered with by ltritish stations.
