Washington, April 3. Appearlnp bofoie a Joint session of the houne and senate last night, President Wil son asked coiiRress to declare that a state of war exists between (Jcrruanj and the I'niled Slater because of Gor many's lllesal submarine warfare. The president also requested that Immediate stops be taken to put the country In a more thorough state of 4efene and that It be permitted to employ all its resources to brins the government of the Gorman emplie to terms and end the war. Ttio president said acquiescence by cnaaross would Involve the utmost practicable co-operal ion in counsel and action" with the governnien'r now at war with Germany, tiio raising of 600,000 men who. in his opinion, should be chosen up m the principle of universal liability to service and tke granting of adequate credits to the government, The full text of tie message follows: THE MESSAGE. Ornllcmen of Hie Congress. "I have called congress Into extra ordinary session because there ar- serious, very serious, choices of pol icy to be made and made Immediato ly,i which it was neither right oi constitutionally permissible Mat I should assume the responsibility of making. "On the 3d of February last I oTi daily laid In-fore you an extraordin ary announcement of the Imperial German government that on and after the 1st day of February it was Its pur pose to put aside all restraints of lu or of humanity and use its subma rlnes to sink every vessel that sough' to approach either the ports of Great Britain and Iroland, or the western coasts of Burope, or any of the jiorts controlled by the enemies of Germany within the Mediterranean. That hud seemed lo be the object of of the Ger man submarine warfare earlier in tiic war. but since April of last year the Imperial German government had somewhat restrained the commanders of Its undersea craft In confurmlty with Its promise then riven to us thai pa-senger boats should not be sun and that due warning would be given to all other vessels whkh its subma rines might seek to oestroy. when no resistance was offered or escape at tempted, and care taken that their crews were given at least a fair chance to save their lives !n their epen boats. The precautions were meager and haphazard enough. a was proved In distressing Instance after Instance In the progress oi the cruel and unmanly business, but a certain degree of restraint was ob served. "The new policy has swept every restriction aside. Vessels of every kind, whatever their flag, their char acter, their cargo, their destination, their errand, have been ruthlessly sent to the bottom of the sea without warning and without thought of help or mercy for those on board the ves sels of friendly neutrals along with those of belligerents. Warfare Against Mankind. "I was for a little while unable to believe that such things would In fact be done by any government that had hitherto subscribed to the mimaiii practices of civilized nations. Inter national law had its origin in the at tempt to set up some law which would be respected and observed ujion the seas, where no nation had right of dominion and where !ay the free high ways of the world. By painful effort stags after stage has that law bce'i built up, with meager enough results, Indeed, after all was accomplished that could be accomplished, but al ways with a clear view at least of what the heart or conscience of man kind demanded. Tiiis minimum of right the German government has swept aside under the plea of retalia tion and necessity and because it hnd no weapons which it could use at sea except those which it is impossible, us It is employing them, without throv ing to the winds all scruples of hu- Flag Raising.

"When 1 addressed the congress on the ittto of February last I thought that it would Bumce to assert our neu tral rights with arms, our rinht to um the seas airainst unlawful interfur-e-nre, our richt to keep our people .-ufe aiminst unluwfi:1 violence. But armr-1 nouirallty. it now appears, is impracticable. Heoausc sultmarines are in effect outlaws when used as t.ie C.ennan submaiines have been used aputnst merchant shipping, it la inijHRKibie to detend ships against their attarka as the law of nation has aPFiimcd that merchantmen would defend themselves afialnst pri vateers or cruisers, visible oratt giv ing cbae upon the oj-eu sen. It in common prudence in such circum stances, grim necessity indeed, to eu deavor to destroy tr.cm fccfore they have shown their .wn intentions. T.iey must tie dealt with upen sight, if dealt with at ull. "The fienran uovernment denies the rUht of neuinil.s to use arms at all within the amis of the sea whicji it has proscribed even in the de fense of rights whicti no modern pub licist has ever hefro questioned their right to defend. Tiiero Is one choice we can not make, we are incaiMo o.' makins. We will not choose the path of submission and suffer th most sacred rfuhts of our nation and our people to be ignored or violated The wrorii against which we now ur ray ourselves ure not common wrongs: they cut to the very roots of human life. Solemn Step Taken. "With a profound eense of the sol emn and even trnplol character of the step I am taking and of the grare responsibilities which it involves, but tn unhesitating obedience to w.iat I deem my constitutional duly. 1 advM that the congress declare the rectr.t course of the imperial German gov ernment to be nothing less than war against the government and people of the Vnlted States; Mat it formally ac cept the status of belligerent which has thus been thrust u)Hn It; at.d that it take immediate steps not only to put the country in a more tiiorougli state of defense, but also to exert all Us power and employ all of Its re sources to brins the government of Germany to terms and end the war. "What this will involve Is clear. I will involve the utmost practicable co-operation In counsel and actior. with the governments now at war with tlermnny, and, as incident ts that, the extension to thotte govern ments of the most liberal financial? credits In order that our resource may so far as possible be added ti theirs. It will involve the organia tion and mobilization of all the ma terlal resources of the country to sup ply the materials of war and serve (he Incidental needs of the nation in te most abundant and yet the moat economical nnd emYit.nt way possible. Tt will Involve the Immediate fill, equipment of the navy In ull respects, but particularly in supplying it with the best means of dealing with the enemy's submarines. It wil! involve Ihe immediate addition to tiie amiei forces of the I'nited States, already provided for by law in case of war at least i,O(),00 men, who should, in my opinion, be chosen upon the prin cipal of universal liability to service, and also the authorization of subse quent additional increments of e'p'ftl force as soon as they may be necled and can bo iia.idlud in training. It will involve also, of course, the grant ing of adequate endits to the govern ment sustained.

They are in the field and we should help them in every way to be effective there. "I shall tnke the liberty of suggest Ins, through the several executive de partments of the government, for thfl consideration of your committees, measuns for he accomplishment of several objects I have mentioned. I hope tliat ii will be your pleasure to deal with them as having been framed after very careful thought by t'.ie branch of the government upon which the responsibility of conducting the war and safeguarding toe nation wilt most directly fall. "While we do these things, these deeply momentous things, let us be very cb ar, and make very clear to all the world what our motives and our objects are. My own thought has not been driven from Its habitual and nor mal course by the unhappy eventa of the last two months, and I do not be lieve tnat though of the nation has been altered or clouded by them. I have exactly the same things in mind now that. I had in mind when I ad dressed the senate on the twenty sec ond of January last; the same that I had in mind when I addressed the congress on the third of February and on the l!Gth of February. American Object. "Our object now as then, Is to vin dicate the principle of peace and Justice in the life of the world as against the selfish - and autocratic powers and to set up amongst the really free and self-governed peoplea of the world such a concert of pur pose and of action as will henceforth ensure the observance of those prin ciples. "Neutrality Is no longer feasible or desirable where the peace of the world Is Involved and the freedom of Its peoples, and the menace to that peace and freedom lies In the exist ence of autocratic governments back ed by organized force which Is con trolled wholly by their will, not ty t he will of their people. We 'oave seen the last of neutrality In such circumstances. "We have no quarrel with the Ger man people, lje have no feeling to wards them, but one of sympathy and friendship. It was not upon their im pulse that their governments acted in enterhig this war. Itavas not with their previous knowledge or approval It was a war determined upon as war used to be determined upon tn the old. unhappy da; a when peoples were nowhere consulted by their rul ers and ware were provoked and waged in the interest of dynasties or of little groups of aBvMtloufl men w'.io were accustomed to use their fellow men as pawns and tools. Sef-govern-ed nations do not fill their neighbor states with spies or set the course of intrigue to bring about some crlt leal posture of affairs which will givo them an opportunity to strike and make conquest. Such designs can be successfully worked out only under cover and where no one has the right to ask questions. Cunningly contrived plans of deception or aggression, car ried, may be, from generation to gen eration, can be worked out and kept from the light only within the privacy of courts or behind the carefully guarded confidences of a narrow and privileged class. They are happily Impossible where public opinion com mands and insists upon full informa tion concerning all the nation's af fairs. Attacks Autocracy. "A steadfast concert for peace can never be maintained except by a part nership of democratic nations. No autocratic government could be trust ed to keep faith within it or observe its covenants. It must be a league of honor, a partnership of opinion. In trigue would eat its vitals away; the plottings of Inner circles who could plan what they would and render ac count to no one would be a corruption seated at Its very heart Only free peoples can hold their purpose aud their honor steady to a common er.d and prefer the interests of man Will to any narrow interest of their own. "Does not every American feel that assurance has been added to our hope fur the future peace of the world by. the wonderful and heartening things that have been happening within the la?t few weeks In Russia? Russia was known by those who knew It best to have been always democratic at heart, in all the vital habits of her thought. In all the intimate relation ships of her people that spoke their natural instinct, their habitual atti tude towards life. The autocracy that crowned the summit of her po iitical structure, long as it bad stood and terrible as was the reality of Its power, was not in fact Russian in orl aln, character, or purpose, and it now has been shaken off and the great, generous Russian people have been added in all their naive majesty and might to the forces that are fighting for freedom In the world, for Justice nnd for peace. Here is a fit partner lor a league of honor. "One of the things that has served to convince us that the Prussian au tocracy was not and could not be our friend Is that from the very outset Jf the present war It has filled our uu inspecting communities and even our offices of government with spies, anil Spring Colds are Dangerous.

Prussian Enmity Shown, "Even in checking these things and trying to extirpate therm we ha.e ought to put the most generous inter pretation possible upon them, because we know that their source lay, not in any hostile feeling or purpose of the German people tow aids us (who wero no doubt as lgnoran. of tnem an ourselves were), but only In the self ish designs of a government that did what H pleased and told its people nothing. Rut they have played their part In serving to convince us at last that the government entertains no real friendship for us. and means tc act against our peace and security at lta convenience. That it means to stir up enemies against us at our very doors the Intercepted note to the Ger man minister at Mexico City Is eio quent evidence. "We are accepting this challenge of hostile purpose because we know that In such a government following such methods, we can never have a friend. , and that In the presence of Its organ ized power, always lying in wait to accomplish we know not what p;r j pose, there can be no assured secur I Ity for the democratic governments of the world. We are now about t- accept gage of battle with this natural foe to liberty and shall if necessary expend the whole force of the nation to check and nullify Its pretens.0113 and power. The world must be mar.c safe for democracy. Its peace mus be planted upon the tested founda lions of political liberty,. We have no selfish ends to serve. We desire no conquest, no dominion. We seek no Indemnities for ourselves, no material of the champions of the rights of mankind. We shall be satisfied when those rights have been made as se cure as the faith and the freedom of nations can make them. Austria Not Menaced. "I have said nothing of the govern- I ments allied with the Imperial gov I ernment of Germany, because they ' have not made war upon us or chal lenged us to defend our right and our honor. The A ustro-Hungarian govern ! ment has. Indeed, avowed Its unqnal lfied endorsement and acceptance of the reckless and lawless submarine warfare adopted now without disguise by the imperial German government, and tt has therefore not been possible for this government to receive Count Tamowskl, the ambassador recently accredited to this government by tho Imperial and royal gov ernment of Austria-Hungary, but that govern 1 ment has not actually engaged In war fare against citizens of the United States on the high seas, and I take the liberty, for the present at least, of postponing a discussion of our rela tlons with the authorities at Vienna j We enter this war only where we ar j clearly forced Into it because there are no other means of defending our rights. "It will be all the easier for us to conduct ourselves as belligerents In a high spirit of right and fairness, because we act without animus, not In enmity, towards a people or with Ihe desire to bring ary injury or dis advantage upon them, but only In armed opposition to an irresponsible government, whlcn has thrown aside all considerations of humanity and of right and Is running amuck. We aro, let me say again, the sincere friends of the German people, and shall de sire nothing so much as the early re establishment of intimate relations of mutual advantage between us. how ever hard it may be for them, for the time being, to believe that this is spoken from our hearts. Our German Citizens. "We shall, happily, still have an opportunity to prove that friendship In our daily attitude and actions to wards the millions of men and worn en of German birth and native sym pa thy who live among us and share our life, and we shall be proud fi prove It towards all who are In fact loyal to their neighbors and to tho government In the hour of test. They are, most of them, as true and loyal Americans as If they had never known any other fealty or allegiance. They will be prompt to stand with us In rebuking and restraining the few who may be of a different mind a.id purpose. If there should be disloyalty, It will be dealt with with a firm hand of stern repression; but, if it lifts Us head at all. it will lift it only here and there and without countenance except from a lawlesc and malignant few. "It ts a distressing and oppressive duty, gentlemen of the congress, which I have performed In thus ad dressing you. There are. it may be, liny months of fiery trial and sacri fice ahead of us. It Is a fearful thing to lead this great peaceful people InU war. Into the most terrible aud dis astrous of all wars, civilization itself seeming to be In the balance. Hut i.,t right is more precious than peace, and we shall fight for the things which we have always carried near est our hearts for democracy, for tl. right of those who submit to author ity to have a voice tn their own gov ernments, for the rights and liberties of small nations, for a universal do minion of right by such a concert of free people as Bhall bring peace and tafety to all nations and make the world Itself at last free.
