TO GRANT MUCH U.S. ASKS Berlin Is Ready to Recog. nize Our Rights in Principle SPRING MEDICINE Hood's SarsaparUla, the Great Purifier, Is the Best Blood REPLY DUE TUESDAY, SAYS DISPATCH Latest Rumors Concerning Germany's Answer to President's Demand Washington, May 21. Germany hag unofficially accepted the general principle that American citizens shall be protected and safeguarded by the United State, under all conditions. On the ground, however, that it is contrary to all the ' rules of international law, she. will re- Wr. the aiiocention that tlie united States can demand complete abandon ment of the German submarine warfare. Berlin holds that America's legal rights extend only to the protection of vessels of American register, and to the safety of. Americans on board belligerent mer chantmen. This was understood yesterday after noon to be the German position, as out lined to Ambassador Gerard in the series of unofficial conferences which have fol lowed presentation of the Wilson note to the Berlin foreign office. It is further understood that, in his reports to the ' " state department, which were under con sideration yesterday by President Wil son. Mr. Gerard said that such will be the general tone of t..e oincial German reply. Germany, it was stated, will make ner answer very Bpeciiie. She will take up the American note paragraph by para graph from her understanding of the provisions of international law bearing on the case. She will warmly defend her submarine warfare as a reprisal against an enemy which courted such reprisals by arming her merchant Bhips and offer ing rewards for the destruction of Ger man submarines, and will quote resolu tions of the British Board of Trade and shipping organizations aapproving all methods that would destroy German un dersea craft. In effect it is understood that the Orman officials have told Ambassador fierard that they consider they have been fighting fire with fire and that any de mand by the United States that they completely cease submarine activity is an improper one in the light of international law. . i','- "l' Reports that the United States had admitted .the justice of the latter con tention were emphatically denied by Sec retary .Bryan yesterday. He refused to discuss the matter further in any form, calling all questions in reference to the matter improper. He j. ade it plain that he has "claimed the lid" down on all news, so far as his department is con cerned, regarding any future develop ments in the German situation. "Hereafter only Btich news as I consid er proper to make public will be given out, declared the secretary. Reply May Be Ready Monday. ' Berlin, via The Hague, May 21. Ger many's reply to the American note re garding the Lusltania and simitar inci dents will in all probability be completed by Monday. I nless there is some untore seen delay it will be delivered to Wash ington earlv next week. 1 am inflormed that because of the length of the American note and because of the detailed requests it contains, the Orman reply requires the most careful drafting. But I am officially assured that there is no reason for any apprehension toneerning German-American relations. The German rerdy, I am told, will be polite and friendly. It is emphasized that the last thing Germany is thinking of is a breach of diplomatic relations. Amsterdam, via lndon, May 21. Hit- Spring sickness comes in some degree to every umn, womau and child in our climate. Jt is that run-down condition of the svtttcm that results from impure, iin IKivcrishcd, devitalized blood. H i marked by loss of appetite and that tired feeling, and in many cases by some form of eruption. , The best way to treat spring sickness is to take Hoods Sarsapanla, J his old reliable family medicine purifies, en riches and revitalizes the blood. It is an all-the-year-round alterative and tonic, and is absolutely the(best spring medi cine. Get your blood in good condition at once now. JJelay may be dangerous. Ask your druggist for Hood a Sarsapa rilla, and insist on having it, for nothing else can take its place. Advt. ter attacks upon the United States by leading German newspapers give evidence ot following otlicial instructions. J lie de mands that Germany refuseB to yield are so concerted and the order of arguments so uniform that they suggest a central source. The important Berliner Tage blatt says : "The demand of the Washington gov ernment must be rejected. Indeed, the whole note hardly merits serious consid eration. Its 'firm tone' is only a cloak to hide America's consciousness of her own culpability. If American citizens, in sfiite of the warnings of the German admiralty, intrusted themselves on the I.usitania, the blame for the consequences falls on themselves and their,, govern merit.

Ad.1 BALFOUR AND ASQUITH CONFER British Premier Meets Nation's Leading Statesmen Lansdowne Is Present. London, May 21. Premier Asquith yes terday, took up the task of forming the new coalition cabinet which is to sup plant the present Liberal ministry. The cabinet will not be completed for several days, and it is expected formal announce ment of its composition will be withheld until before Parliament reconvenes on .June 3. At his oflicial residence in Downing street, the prime minister yesterday con ferred with Arthur .T. Balfour, who may be the new first lord of the admiralty; Bonar Law, Unionist leader, who is cer tain of a portfolio; Lord Lansdowne, Sir Edward! Grey, David Lloyd George and Home Secretary McKenna. Later in the day the premier conferred with the marquis of Crewe and Austen Chamberlain. It is accepted that Winston Churchill will have to resign from his post as iirst lord of the admiralty. It any doubt of this existed following Premier Asquith's announcement in the House of Commons that cabinel change were in contempla tion, it was removed by the fact that Lord Fisher, first sea lord of the admiral-1 tv, has returned to his desk. It is well understood that there ia not room in the same department for both Fisher and Winston Churchill.

The fortunate discovery of two sawed guy ropes sup porting the derrick in the granite cut ting yard of Ouido Serafineli of Quarry street, near the ward four playgrounds, prevented the collapse of the derrick and its possible fall on the shed where seven men were at work. The discovery was made by workmen who investigated a sagging of the guy and the vandal who has damaged monu ments in Ninth yuincy and set three lires in West Quincv. one of whioh caused a loss of $10,000, is thought to hav been responsible. The guys were sawed nearly all the way through, the only w,ire. holding them being a thin strand of which the cable is made. The sawed guys were on the side opposite to the shed. 1 heir parting would have resulted in the derrick falling on the shed. The derrick is of the 13-ton variety and has been in constant use the. past few dsys. It has been seen to tremble when light loads were lifted and it ia thought that all that has saved it from falling waa the fact that no heavy atonea have been lifted. Whether or not the guva have been sawed for several days ia an open ques tion but it ia generally believed in Wett Quincy that the work waa done Satur day night, after the fire broke out in the sheda of McIonald and Tinkamen on Willard street, a short distsnee away. The police who have been at work in vestigating the vandalism have not aa vet uncovered anything that will lead to the apprehension of the man. andsham baa been rampant in the city the pant few yeara and reeorda show it hat always been just before Memorial tlav, wlien manufactured granite ia shipped to cemeteries.

Washington, D. C, May 20. Owing to a falling off aince August 1 of nearly30 percent in shipments of creosote from Kngland and Germany, whence comes all but a small part of the imported oil used by wood preserving plants in this1 country, American manufacturers have taiten steps wnien, says a report com piled by the forest service, it is esti mated will increase production of the domestic article by about 25 tier cent. The imported oil ordinarily forma about i .e i . ii.. 3 I ij per ceiii ui mo luiai ucu in me United states, where creosote is the moat important wood preaervative. The statistics gathered ahow that wood preserving is one of the most rapidly ad vancing industries in the country. In 1803 there were fifteen plants in the I'nited States; in 1914, there were 122 plants of all kinds, 100 being of the pressure-cylinder type. Ninety-four of these plants last yesr used mora thsn 79 million gallons of creosote oil, more than 27 million pounds of dry sine chloride, and nearly two and one-half millions gallons of other preservatives, such as coal tar and crude oil, treating a total of nearly 100 million cubic feet of timber, an increase of about seven million cubio feet over 191.1. and of .1:1 million cubie feet over 1912. The most important consumer are the large plants in which railroad tira' are treated. The preservatives material-1 ly lengthen the tiea' period of service.

To some e tent the treatment of fence pouts snd other forms of farm timber ia being taken up, an inctpenaive apparatua and method having been devised bv the d part ment of agriculture; but aa yet the ue of wood preservativea by farmers ia on too small a scale to have any impor tance in the total, while the practice of treating telephone poles is in its in ciplency in this country.
