New Berlin Re
Bernstorff Decides to Send Coramuni.
lation to Home Officials, Though
He is Willing to enture it Will
Be All Right.
Washington, Feb. 8.?In substance
tentative communication from Germany,
designed 10 settle the Lusitania
case, is acceptable to the United
States. High administration officials
tonight consider that the government
in prevailing on Germany to make
-concessions and agreements set forth
in the document has accomplished
recognition of the high principles for
which it has contended in connection
"with submarine warfare.
While the substance of the propos
od communication admittedly is satisfactory.
minor changes to clarify the
wording and in connection with the
form which the formal document shall
take were suggested today to Count
von Bernstorff, the German ambassador,
by Secretary Lansing. The desires
of the United States in this connection
were made known to the ambassador
after President Wilson had
discussed the subject with his cabinet.
Count von Bernstorff immediately informed
the secretary that he saw no
reasons why the changes could not
be made, but explained that as a precaution
he would submit the entire
matter to his go-, ernment for final ap
proval. He did so in a dispatch sent
to Berlin tonight, and within about six
days the resulting formal communication
is expected.
A Belated Answer.
r:-re:aiy Lansing insists, it is
>uued by xiipib authority, that it shall
be stated specifically in the communication
chat it is an answer to the
American note Count von Bernstorff
had not deemed it necessary, it is
said, to include the statement that
the communication was in answer to
:hp American note, considering that
the same end would be accomplished
by submitting it in the form of a memorandum.
Tne ambassador as yet does not
"know whether his government wants
iiim to sign the formal note or
whether it is desired to have the secretary
of foreign affairs to do so. This
phase also has been submitted to Berlin.
Assurances were received in high

Developments came rapidly today.
Secretary Lansing went to the White
House an hour before the time set for
the cabinet meeting to discuss with
*iie president in detail the tentative
comunicatlon and analyze the meaning
of the words employed. When
the cabinet met the proposal was submitted
by the president
1-ater Count von Bernstorff. who
had requested an appointment, was
called to the stale department by Secretary
Lansing. ii'he two remained
closeted in tne secretary's office for
. more than naif an hour, while the
secretary outlined the wishes of the
United Stales in detailfl As the ambassador
left the building he said:
"Everything is substantially all
right, but it is not finished."
A high official of the administration
made this announcement:
Settlement in Sight.

lost in the Lusitania disaster, otters
reparation and declares that the submarine
warfare in the zone around
the British Isles has been modified
out of regard for the long standing
friendship for the United States and
because American citizens have lost
their lives. The communication also
calls attention to previous assurances
that passengei ships shall not be
sunk without warning and without
provision for the safety of noncombatants
and that the instructions giv-;
en to submarine commanders in this
respect have been made so stringent
I that there can be no recurrence of
such incidents.
To Avoid Dancrer.
In taking the precaution to submit:
to Berlin the changes suggested.,
Count von Bernstorff is believed to;

beca^^c of a slight difference in lani

Officials appeared to be reluctant j
to proclaim that achievements have ;
been gained. There were indications '
that this was caused by probable con- ;
I sideration for the political situation j
j in Germany.
Officials here are of the opinion 1

safety, not only in regard to the exigencies
of the moment and the

Distilled water after having been exposed

large steamer carries a water distilling
apparatus by which sea water is made
fresh. In the days before steamers
