The official text has not yet reached the embassy because of difficulties of wireless communica tion. The message follows: "Please communicate the following to the state department. "The German government desires to express its deepest sympathy because of the loss of lives on board the Lwl tania. The responsibility rests, ' ow ever, with the British government, which through its plan of starving the civilian population of Germany, has forced Germany to resort to retaliatory measures. "UrllUb Vnuel Armed." "In spite of the German offer to stop the submarine war in case the starva tion plan was given up, British mer chant vessels are being generally armed with guns and have repeatedly tried to ram submarines, so that a previous search was impossible. "They cannot, therefore, be treated as ordinary merchant vessels. A recent declaration made to the British parlia ment by the parliamentary secretary in answer to a question by lord Charles -Beresford said that at the present time practically all British merchant vessels were armed with hand grenades. "LuHllania Carried Munitions." "Besides. It has been openly admitted by the English press that the Lusitania on previous voyages repeatedly carried large quantities or war material.

For "On the present voyage the Lusitania carried 5400 cases of ammunition, while the rest of the cargo also con sisted chiefly of contrabrand. "If England, after repeated official and unofficial warnings, considered herself able to declare that that boat ran no risk and thus light heartedly assumed responsibility for the human life on board a steamer, which owing to Its armament and cargo was liable to destruction, the German government in sr'' of its heartfelt sympathy for the loss of American lives, cannot but regret that Americans feel more in clined to fust English i romlses rather than to pay attention to the warnings from the German side.

The demonstration of patriotism was considered note worthy. Crowd Wave Flags. When the president reached conven tion hall be was escorted to a seat by mayor Rudolph Blankenburg. He found secretaries Wilson and Daniels on the platform. The half was densely packed. Little American flags were held by thousands who stood and waved and cheered as the president entered. The hall was decorated profusely with red, white and blue. "Let us unite in singing America." were the words spoken with a distinct German accent, with which mayor Blankenburg opened the meeting. The president stood with the crowd and Joined In the singing. Mayor, Once German. Speaks. Mayor Blankenburg called attention to the fact that like the other aliens, he had "come from foreign shores to find in the United States a home." He said that a "great responsibility" went with taking out citizenship in the Unit ed States, adding that new citizens must do more than swear allegiance to their adopted country. Let me beseech you." ne added. "to,be Americans first, last and all the time, no matter what may happen In the world at large Secretary WUon Talks. When the mayor concluded he was warmly applauded. He then introduced United States Judge Joseph Buffington and secretary Wilson, of the department of labor. While secretary Wilson was speak ing a baby child of a new citizen be gan crying and the president smiled. Those who have taken the oath of allegiance to the United States can have no dual allegiance. Like you. Mr. mayor, and the guests here tonight, I am one of those who was born abroad and has sworn allegiance to the Unit ed States." 1VaBl ton-Lincoln Pictures Shown. Prior to the president's address, moving: pictures showing leading events In the lives of presidents Wash ington and Lincoln were thrown on a screen. V. S. Places Humanity First. President Wilson spoke by implica tion but his hearers Interpreted his remarks as meaning that while the United States would remain at peace, it woum see: injustice to mankind of the last Friday. "America," said the president, "must have the consciousness that on all sides it touches elbows and touches heart with all nations of mankind. The example of America must be a special example and must be an example not merely of peace, because It will not fight, because peace Is a healing and elevating influence of the world and strife is not. "There is such a thing as a man be ing too proud t6 fight. There is such a thing as being so right that it does not need to convince others by force that it is right" The president carried forward the idea of the welding of foreign blood in the makeup of America by pointing out me u-ue.goai or rignt American citi zenship to be a loyalty not to the coun try of one's birth, but to the land of one's adoption. Breaking Former Ties. "While you bring." he said, "all coun tries with you, you come with a pur pose of leaving all other countries be hind you bringing what Is best of their spirft. but not looking over your snouiaer or seeKing to perpetuate what you leave in them. I wbuld not cer tainly be one who would suggest that a man cease to love the place of his or igin. It is one thing to ldve the place where you were born, and another to dedicate yourself to the place where you go. You can't be an American if yon think of yourself in groups. Amer ica does not consist of groups. A man who considers himself as belonging to a national group is not yet an Amer ican. - "My advice to you Is to think first not only of America, but to think first of humanity. You do not love humani ty if you seek to divide humanity In Jealous camps." Some of the passages In his speech which the crowd applauded most loud ly were these: ' I am sorry for the man who seeks to make capital out of the passions of his fellow man. He has lost the touch and ideal of America, for America was , created to unite mankind by the pas- sions that lift and unite and not,bv ' the passions that separate and debase ' mankind. ' "The man who seeks to divide man I from man, group from group, interest i from interest in the United States, is striking at its very heart "I was born in America. You dreamed ! of what America was to be, and I hope I you brought dreams with you. No man who does not see visions will ever re- ! alixe any high hopes or undertake any I great enterprise. Feels Renewal of Spirit In his perforation the president ' aroused much enthusiasm when he said j he felt that he ought not be away from ; Washington, and after coming he found , tne Eatberlng renewed his spirits "as an American." In Washington." he said, "men tell you so many things eTery day that are pursue, and tnat be Knew tne country expected him to "act with deliberation as well as with firmness." It was sug gested the president might communi cate directly with the German em peror. While his Philadelphia -udlence Monday night waj impressed with the belief that the president was referring specifically to the Lusitania tragedy, tne president indicated today that he meant his speech to cover the entire subject of foreign relations as well as the subject of domestic solidarity with reference to the aliens. Cabinet Conference Resumeb. At the usual hour the caOinet began arriving for the first conference with the president since last Friday. Chairman Stone of the senate foreign relations committee discussed the Lusi tania disaster with the president before the cabinet meeting began and later said he had no eroectation that an I extra session of congress would be I called. Senator Stone declared he favored passage of the government purchase bill, which failed in the last congress. Such a step, he said, would provide American ship to carry American pas sengers and goods. He added that he took It for granted that the United States would find means to protect Its own ships. Opposes Severing Relations. Senator La Follette, another white house caller, today opposed the sug gestion that diplomatic relations with Germany be broken off. The Philadelphia speech was Inter preted by official Washington as meaning that whatever course is pur sued the United States probably would endeavor to serve the cause of human ity Dy appealing to Germany to end he- submarine warfare against un armed merchant ships carrying non combatants. Bryan Won't Tnllg. The cabinet was in session nearly three hours, the longest meeting held in several months. Jone of the mem bers would deny that the Lusitania incident had been discussed, but all re fused to comment Secretary of state Bryan, pressed with questions, declared "We must not discuss what occurs at cabinet meetings." Daniels 1. silent Secretary of the navy Daniels, asked whether the Atlantic fleet would pass through the Panama canal in July in accordance with previously announced plans, replied: "I cannot discuss that or any other question now." Mr. Daniels was asked whether the review of the Atlantic fleet planned for next week is .' v,rir ..i.i i held. Monday in Philadelphia he de nied that plans for the review wocld be changed. Today he answered the question by replying: "I cannot discuss that" The Sum Total? Fascinating.
