WASHINGTON. March 4 -The official
text of the German government's reply
to the American not suggesting that
Germany and Great Britain agree on a
plan to lessen danger to neutral shipping
iti the war sone as made public here
today. It follows:
The Imperial German government has
taken note with great Interest ot the
suggestion of the American government
that certain principles for the conduct
of maritime war on the part of Germany
and Kngland be agreed upon for the pro
tection of neutral shipping. It sees therein
new evidence of tho friendly feelings of
the American government toward the
German government, which are fully re
ciprocated by Germany.
"It is In accordance with Germany's
wishes also to have maritime war con
ducted according to rules which, without
discriminate restricting one or the other
of the belligerent powers in tho use of
their means of warfare, are equally con
siderate of the interests of neutrals and
the dictates of humanity.
"Consequently it was Intimated In the
German note of the ISth that observa
tion of the declaration of London on the
part of Germany's adversaries would cre
ate a new situation from which the Ger
man government gladly would draw the
proper conclusions.
"Proceeding from this view the Oe.r-
msn government has carefully examined
the suggestion of the American govern.
ment and believes that it csn actually see
in it a suitable basis for the practical
solution of the questions which have
Offers to tamp Mines.
"With regard to the various points of
the American note it begs to make the
following remarks:
First With regard to the sowing of
mines, the German government would be
willing to agree, as suggested, not to
use floating mines and to have anchored
mines constructed as Indicated. More
over, it agrees to put the stamp of the
government on all mines to be planted.
On the other hand, it does not appear to
it to be feasible for the belligerents
wholly to forego the use of anchored
mines for offensive purposes.
"Becon The German government would
undertake not to use Its submarines to
attack mercantile vessels of any flag
except when necessary to enforce the
right of visit and search. Should the
enemy's nationality of the vessel or the
presence of contraband bo ascertained,
submarines would proceed In accordance
with the general rules of International
"Thlrrt As provided In the American
note, this restriction of the use of the
submarines Is contingent on the fact that
enemy mercantile vessels abstain from
the use of the neutral flag and other
neutral distinctive murks. It would ap
pear to be a matter of course that such
mercantile vesecls also abstain from arm
ing themselves and from all resistance
by force, since such proceeduro is con
trary to International law and would
render Impossible any action of the sub
marines In accordance with international
Food for Animals Alan.
"Fourth The regulation of legitimate
importations of food into Germany sug
gested by the American government ap
pears to bo in general acceptable. Such
regulation would be confined to Importa
tions by sea. but that would, on the other
hand, Include Indirect Importations by
way of neutral porta. The Germans
would, therefore, be willing to make the
declarations of the nature provided In
the American note, so that the use of the
Imported food and foodstuffs solely by
the non-combatant population would he
guaranteed. The Imperial government
must, however. In addition, emphasise
having the importation of other raw ma
terial used by the economic system of
non-combatants, Including forage, per
mitted. To that end the enemy govern
ments would have to permit the free
entry Into Germany of the raw material
mentioned in the free list of the declara
tion of London and to treat material In
cluded In the list of conditional contra
band according to tho samo principles
as food and foodstuffs.
"The Gorman government vrntures to
hope that the agreement for which the
American government has paved the way
may be reached after due consideration
of the remarks made above, and that in
this way peaceable neutral shipping and
trade will not have to suffer any more
than is absolutely necessary to unavoid
able effocta of maritime war. These ef
fects could be still further reduced If, as
was pointed out In the German note of
the lflth Inst., some way could be found
to exclude tho shipping of munitions of
war from neutral countries to belligerents
on ships of any nationality.
"The German government must, of
course, reserve a definite statement of
the position until such time as it may
receive further Information from the
American government, enabling It to see
what obligations the British government
aro on their part willing to assume."

We manufacture our own material. We make a cement stave tongue and
grooved on either end and side and Is substantially banded with steel hoops.
When properly made and cured, and properly erected, will Improve with age.
Why We Claim the Interlocking Cement Stave Silo Is tne Besti
Because It is air-tight, water and acid-proof and will preserve the silage per
fectly under all weather conditions.
Because It is a permanent Silo and grows stronger with age.
Because It cannot be destroyed by fire and will resist any wind except a cy
clone or tornado and can be Insured at the regular farm rates.
Becanse It is acid-proof and sealed airtight with our Interlocking wash and
Because It requires no attention or tightening of hoops.
Because Curing the silage perfectly, it freezes as little as any Silo on the
Because It costs less than a good wooden Silo.
Because The first cost is the total cost; no expense for repairs, painting, or
loss of silage from air leaks.
Because We erect with skilled and mechanical labor and know the construc
tion Is correct.
Because Our many satisfied customers are our best advertisers and a care
ful investigation will convince you of these facta.
Why Do You Not Build Silo?

per cent of the crop value.
Slxu Silage can be fed to an advantage during the
summer and drouth season.
Seventh Silage Is your cheapest feed and best bal
anced ration, and with the proper method one
acre of corn silage can be put in the Silo for
the same expense It can be put In the crib.

First Cows fed on silage In winter give milk in
quantity and quality equal to June pasture,
gecend Silage enables the farmer to manufacture
more Milk or Meat at less cost than any other
method. It is the cheapest and best feed for all
stock at all times and under all conditions on
the farm.
