not yet reached the embassy because
of difficulties of wireless communica

"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
"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.

dent Wilson said today he would make
a decision on the policy to be followed '
in the Lusitania cae as soon as ne
had all the elements in mind. 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.

Mayor Blankenburg called attention
to the fact that like the other aliens,
he had "come from foreign shores to

with taking out citizenship in the Unit

"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

Some of the passages In his speech
which the crowd applauded most loud

' 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 '

expected him to "act with deliberation
as well as with firmness." It was sug
gested the president might communi

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
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
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

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
