FsbI It Averts Danger ol Im
mediate Diplomatic Break,
Not Apparently Meets the Presi
dent's Basic Demand That Germany
Effect an Abandonment of Illegal
Methods of Submarine Warfare.
United States Urged to Make Effec
tive Protest Against Blockade.
Washington, May 6. Though Pres
ident Wilson Is reserving decision un.
til he studios the official text, there
aro many Indications that the German
reply to the American note will avert
the danger of an Immediate diplo
matic break. The- German note,
though unsatisfactory in more way
tban one, apparently meets the presi
dent's basic demand that Germany
"Immediately declare and effect an
abandonment of present methods of
submarine warfare."
German submarine commanders
have been ordered to conduct tneir
warfare against merchantmen "in ac
cordance with tho general principles
of visit and search recognized by in
ternational law," and these orders, ac
cording to the note, are in effect now.
Tlie fact that Germany tnreatens to
withdraw them unless toe United
States obtains concessions from Great
Britain relative to the blockade, is
not regarded as necessarily vitiating
Germany's concession to the Ameri
can demand. The United States. It
is explained, will know how to deal
with this threat should It be put into
execution. In the meantime the sub
marine menace to noncombatant lives
Is at least temporarily eliminated.
May Accept Concession.
It is too early to predict with cer
tainty that the president will accept
this concession on its face value, but
Indications strongly point that way.
The president received the German
reply as cabled by press associations
from Berlin Just before the cabinet
meeting. He read it to his advisers
and the cabinet discussed it for near
ly two hours. The unfavorable Im
pression made by the sharp words In
the preliminary portion of the note
vas offset by the outline of the orders
tn submarine commandets which indi
cates the specific concessions which
tie imperial government has made.
It was the guarantees and not the
words that Interested the president.
Following the cabinet meetlne; ther
were further indications that an Im
mediate break was not imminent.
Secretary Lansing said: "I can not
discuss tho note at all at this time,"
but, he added later, that certain In
quiries concerning the note probably
Would bo made of the German gov
ernment. This belief; was regarded
as an admission that the note had at
least served the purpose o' reopening
t'iplomatlc negotiations between the
two governments.
There is much doubt on certain
points covered in the note which are
not altogether clear. The note evi
dently is so worded as to leave many
diplomatic loop holes of escape to fit
possible subsequent necessities of tho
imperial government. Apparently the
German position on the vital point at
Issue the suspension or abandon
ment of illegal submarine warfare
could be summed up In a broad sensr
la this manner:
German Concessions.
Germany has suspended its subma
rine warfare In the hope that the
United States will now Insist upon
Great Britain abandoning its block
ade. Heretofore Germany offered to
abandon its illegal submarine opera
tions simultaneous with an abandon
ment of the blockade by Great Bri
tain. Now Germany apparently has
made the first move as a concession
t(. the United States without waiting
for Great Britain to act. This, it is
explained, appears to represent a
definite concession, and something
more than Germany has ever agreed
to do before.
The main reliance" of the United
States government's belief that Ger
many has met the president's de
mands is contained In the orders is
sued by the impcifal government to
Us submarine commanders. These or
ders state "In accordance with the
seneral principles of visit and search
and the merchant vessels recognized
by International law, such vessels
both within and without the area de
clared as a naval war zone, shall not
be sunk without warning and without
saving human lives, unless the ship
attempts to escape or offer resist
ance." The orders appear definite enough,
but officials already see a possibility
they may be Blve-n different Inter
pretation, awording to whether or
not an armd merchantman Is regard
eT ns a "merchant vessel." The Unit
ed States had flatly taken the stand
that this is the proper and legal desig
nation of a merchantman armed for
defense. Geimany has declared that
the imperial government regards
armed merchantmen in the British
sorvico as auxiliary warships, for the
reason that tl' British admiralty has
trdered them to attack submarines.

Fourth Annual Visit Scheduled;
For Aug. 4 To 9
Visit Of Alice Nlelson A Redpath Tri
umphReview Of Her Operatic
Career Maurer Another Fea
tureLocal Committee
Alt. Vernon's fourth annual cbautau
qua Is scheduled to open on Wednes
day, August 4, and continue for eight
days, closing Wednesday evening, Au
gust 9th, according to action of tho
chautauqua committee which met re
cently with a representative of the
Redpath Bureau. As previously an
nounced, it has been decided to aban
don the regular programs on Sunday
thus requiring eight days to deliver
the usual seven-day program. It Is
very probable that a special union
service will be arranged for Sunday
morning or Sunday afternoon under
the direction of the Ministerial asso
ciation of the city.
Mr. Bumstead, who outlined the
Redpath program to the committee,
emphasized especially the coming of
Alice Nlelson, the prima donna so
prano. Without question, this U the
biggest attraction that has ever been
contracted for on a Chautauqua" circuif
and it is expected that she will draw
widely. Madame Nielsen came into
prominence about ten years ago wheD
she starred in Madame Butterfly. Un
satisfied with her attainments in light
opera, she pursued her studies and
persistently worked toward grand op
era. Her ambition was realized last
year when she signed a contract with
the two most famous grand opera
companies In the world, the Metropoli
tan and Boston Grand Opera compan
ies. Her record so far has been just
as great as it was in light opera and
Madame Nielsen's price is already be
ginning to soar.
The fact that such an artist can be
brought to Mt. Vernon, together with
a feast of other big things, and given
to the people for a ?2 season ticket is
remarkable. Our people will appre
ciate her coming and it is anticipated
that standing room will be at a prem
ium on the last evening of the chau
tauqua. Madame Nielsen will travel in
her private car, the Elysium, and will
carry her own grand piano. She will
be assisted very ably by a violinist
and accompaniest.
