EDAY iCt$$tfra)ttnt tt 1 1 1 ACCEPT PLEDGES OF GERMANY AID III MUST NOT BE BASED ON LIMIT OF BRITISH BLOCKADE, HOWEVER. PRESIDENT OTS A NOTE Right Of American Citizens Must In No Way be Contingent Upon the Conduct of Any Other Nation in War. WASHINGTON, May 9. A note cabled by Secretary Lansing to Am bassador Gerard Monday for delivery to the Berlin foreign office informs the German government that the Uni ted States accepts Germany's "declara tion of its abandonment" of its for mer submarine policy and now relies upon a scrupulous execution of the altered policy to remove the principal danger of an interruption of the good relations existing between the two countries. With this acceptance is coupled for mal notice to Germany that the United States cannot for a moment entertain, much less discuss, a suggestion that respect by German naval authorities for the rights of citizens of the United States on the high Beas should in the slightest degree be made contingent upon the conduct of any other govern ment affecting the rights of neutrals and non-combatants. This is in reply to the concluding statement in the last German note to the effect that while submarine commanders had been or dered to sink no peaceful freight or passenger-carrying ships without warn ing or without safety for passengers and crew, the German government would reserve to itself complete lib erty of decision unless the United States was successful in its efforts to break tU,;;j3ritish blockade. Secretary Lansing issued a state ment last night saying that the great er part of Germany's answer to the demands of the United States was de voted to matters which the American government could not discuss with the Berlin government, but he considered Germany had "yielded to our repre sentations," and that "we can have no reason to Quarrel with her" so long as the altered policy is lived up to.

Irish politics are again in the foreground as a re sult of the recent rising and the con sequent convergence of sentiment be tween John Redmond, the nationalist leader, and Sir Edward Carson, the Ulster leader. The conference of these leaders Mon day on the disarmament question and Tuesday's significant debate in the house of commons on the possibility of bringing Ireland within the purview of the conscription bill have given this matter still greater importance, and it looks as thought Ireland's unfortunate experience might become the indirect means of adjusting in a manner satis factory to all parties the difficult home rule problem, which has been hung up during the war.

The exercises this morning mad plain the need for a larger building. The main auditorium of the school Is so small that not more than three ot the seven grades can ever be seated! at the same time. It was necessary this morning in order to make room to? the visitors, to request a majority of the children to remain at home, thun depriving them of the privilege and pleasure of witnessing the class day exercises, something that should never be necessary. The visitor Is impressed with the fact that this elementary school, one of the best in the state, I lacking in one essential only but sadly, sadly lacking in that and that' Is an adequate building. It is to be bopbi that the citizens of the Ninth district will become aroused te the topor tance of having better and larger facil ities for the school. r The Hsratd.
