SEES HO TROUBLE
Italian Ambassador Announces
There Will Be No Dispute Be
tween His Country and Unit
WASHINGTON. May 25. After
two long conferences with Sec'y of
State Pryan Monday Count MacchI di
Cellcre, tho Italian ambassador, an
nounced that there would be "no elif
ficulties between tho United States
and Italy on the question of contra
band." Count Cellere spoke for his govern
ment as he had received from tho for
eign office a long cable dispatch
which had been partly deciphered
and which he said he would present
Tuesday to tho state department.
This communication, in large part, is
a review by Italy of the causes which
led to the war. This review and tho
expected manifesto of the emperor
of Austria on the cause of the war will
be followed by the usual proclamation
of neutrality by the United States.
Dr. iVmstantln Theodore Dumoa
was at the state department at the
time eif the second visit there of the
Italian ambassador. Ambassador
Dumba handed a brief note to Sec'y of
.tate Pryan which was written by the
ambassador in the diplomatic reading
In this note Austria cleared up a
misapprehension as to some alleged
objections of Austria to be represent
ed at Rome by the United States. All
that Ambassador Dumba would admit
was that his communication was in
tended to "correct misapprehensions."
It was understood late Monday aft
ernoon that Austria will be repre
sented in Italy by the United States.
ec"y Brvan announced earlier in
the dav that Italy would be repre
sented bv the United States at Vienna
and that the United States had under
taken to represent Austria at the Ser
vian capital and at Cairo. The an
nouncements were interpreted as
meaning that Austria had tailed to re
spond to the reported suggestion of
Prince von Peulow that Austria should
not be represented in Italy by the
United States, but rather by Xpain.
The declaration of war by ltai
brought many diplomats today to the
tUe department. The French, tho

the president is not expected to make
at any early date an announcement as

tions, but simply to de.-e.ribe conditions
as he found tlo in and to ?et the views
of the three leaders, Carranza, Za

This authority stated that the most
important of Mr. West's instructions
was to impress upon the leaders of
the factions that continued intvrfcr
