Southern Amoiicaii Republics
Will Disregard Monroe Doctrine.
Berlin, July 12. Oermuny threw
down the gauntlet to the United .States
today, saying she Intends to do as she
pleases In South and Central Ameri
ca. Shortly after handing the United
Press a conciliatory statement, high
officials held a secret conference and
then gave out a second statement Buy
ing that It whs the present German
attitude. "Germany refuses to recog.
nlze any right, on the part of the
United States to supervise her diplo
matic relations with other countries
In Central and Southern American in
general and Nicaragua In particular.
Germany's recognition of President
Madrli la a matter concerning her
self nnd Nicaragua and concerning no
third person or power whatsoever."
Many construe tho second statement
as Germany's first step toward re
fusing to further recognize the Mon
Attaches at the foreign office feel
that Secretary of State Knox has been
presumptlous In publishing the Kais
er's letter to Madrlz. The government
os awaiting developments at Wash
ington. Government newspapers to
day are under instructions to empha
sise Germany's right to maintain any
relations she Bees, fit In South Am
erica without consulting the United
States. The Vossloho Zeltung. the
government organ. In an inspired ar
ticle says: "Whether the United
States or any other government rec
ognizes or refuses to recognize Ma
drid Is a matter of supreme Indiffer
ence to the German government."
The First Statement.
Rcrlln. July 12. Tho German
mailed fist became a gloved hand
today when the imperial foreign office
authorized the United Press to trans
mit officially the following statement:
"The Emperor Is most enreful to avoid
wounding the suceptlhllltles of Am
ericans regarding affairs In Central
and South America. Germany's alms
in the western hemisphere nre com
mercial. She does not dream of se
curing coaling stations or meddling
In the world politics. The Kaiser's
letter to Dr. Madrlz of Nicaragua,
was the customary dil'pnmntlc nek
nowledgement of Information that
Madrlz had assumed the presidency."
S The Kaiser In his letter to Madrlz
was effusive. It caused a suspicion
that Germany designed to cause
trouble between the United States nnd
Central American republics. The
Nlonraguan situation Is very delicate
and the nctlon of foreign powers is
being watched closely by the state de
partment. Means Trouble Ahead.
Washington. July 12. Germany's
declaration, it is believed, here ap
proaches a defiance to the Monroe
doctrine, and If carried out trouble
hardly can be n voided. It Is believed
thnt the German foreign office ncted
hastily, nevertheless It Is sure to at
tract official nttentlon. Germany evi
dently believes Knox published the
Madrlz letter but friends of Madrlz
realty did so, wanting to give It the
gteatest publicity. Many believed the
sudden change of Germany's front
may he the result of successful ne
gotiations between Germany, Japan
and Italy. Japan, It Is snld, expects
to withdraw from her alliance with
England, and It Is reported has been
trying to form a triple offensive and
defensive alliance with the three
