THE ^INDIANAPOLIS STAR/SATURDAY; MAY ^6, 1916, ''ANSWER' OF GERMANY BRINGS VARIED VIEWS FROM PRESS *t Reply Is Given Several Interpretations, and While Unsafe istador$ to Some, Few Anticipate Diplomatic Break at TMs Time. ? NEW YORK, May 6.--Comment of the leading newspapers throughout tfie United States on Germany's reply to President Wilson's latest communication shows a varying interpretation, with the weight -Q£ opinion probably taking the view that the note is not entirely satisfactory. While a number of the leading papers declare that the situation warrants the withdrawal of Ambassador Gerard, a larger number take the view that regardless of what course President Wilson may take, the situation is not such as to warrant a diplomatic break at this time. Comment from a number of leading papers follows: ALABAMA. MONTGOMERY JOURNAL- · Germany i has made many, and we may gay, setae important concessions In its note. If, however, Mr. Wilson can not-recede from , his ultimatum which forbids Germany at',tacking a)l ships, according to its past and (present methods, \even though bearing I munitions of war to the enemy, It^would 5 seem to compel a. Severance of diplomatic relations. ARIZONA. ·" TUCSON CITIZEN--Germany has not declared tttt--ttfaandennrajrt-eM*«fr-pPeB6Ht- methods of submarlnelvafliFiT^he has not even admitted those methods. The reply is equivalent to passports for Von- Bernstorff;. The concessions beg the issue. CALIFORNIA. OAKLAND TRIBUNE--The war cloud is dispelled. Germany has yielded, conditionally-at--least,-which removes the danger of an immediate rupture of diplomatic relations. f *" Jca ! th COLORADO. TRINIDAD CHRONICLE NEWS--The note of the German government yields nothing, explains nothing, promises nothing, and It is quite likely that nothing whatever will be done about it. PUEBLO STAR JOURNAL--The note :ah not be other than unsatisfactory to i the United States. A diplomatic break I seems inevitable. 'COLORADO SPRINGS TELEGRAPH-First impressions of tne German note lead to the feeling that months of diplomatic exchange between Washington-and Berlin have failed to' briny about a final solution of the submarine issue. CONNECTICUT. NEW HAVEN, THE REGISTER-Though it (the npte) seems to concede the very important point that It is possible to conduct submarine warfare humanely, it leaves sufficient loopholes. . . . It Is considerably short, at least, In spirit, of what we asked, and fails to remove our justification for stern action. NEW BRITAIN HERALD--Germany believes the United States government Is playing favorites and, like a peeved school boy, refuses to obey unless the other fellow is whipped Into line, not realizing that all the cases dp not run in parrallel lines. . ". ' · i DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. WASHINGTON STAR--If. . . . t h e [United States does not obtain from England satisfactory guarantees as to the iblockade meeting the German view of the. (rules of warfare, Germany will, It is indicated, reopen the question of submarine warfare in accordance with international law. · Thus . the apparently unconditional concession embraced In the orders to submarine commanders would "seem "to be in -fact contingent, for permanent binding force upon the success of future negotiations between the United States and England. FLORIDA. ;, TAMPA TIMES--Germany's stiff-necked attitude is continued. There Is no yield^ ing on the points stressed- by President [Wilson. A breaking off of diplomatic relations now seems to be inevitable. GEORGIA. ATLANTA JOURNAL--In justice ,to Its own interest and. honor, the United States inust sever relations with Germany. The ^President's duty Is plain, inescapable,-and tlhe American people, regretful as they wre that the Issue has reached this .pass, mill stand unitedly behind hrm. \ SAVANNAH PRESS--The note is a document stamped with the "made-in- Germany" brand of diplomacy. Jt Is a .play for further time, and it caWies sma.ll [assurance not given before and promptly (disregarded. 7 MACON NBWS-vrhe note promises fnothlng; concedes nothing, and even car- les a threat of reversion to worse than teresent methods. President- Wilson will ^Undoubtedly find it altogether unsatls- t actpry. It is a typical Berlin" evasion if main issues. · marine operations outside of the lines laid down in our successive protests. CHICAGO HERALD-- The German government demands that we compel ·Britain to raise her 'starvation blockade' though incessantly and vociferously denying that Germany is or can be 'starved' by it. Official Germany says in effect: 'We will give this for that; but you must force the delivery to us of that for this.' It calls upon us in .fact, to fight the British navy, if necessary, lest "women and children shall be starved." . . . Of course that is precisely what Germany did at the siege of Paris, but the women and children starved there were not German. , . - ' · STAATS ZEITUNG-- Wo are con- vhieed^-rtrat-'tlie "-President, Bef ore "r each- · ing a decision, wil divest himself of his pro-British sentiments and will 'take counsel, wtth_ his sense of Justice and equity and after an honest and serious consideration of all facts will come to consider that the submarine war is not the cause, but the consequence-- -the logical, unavoidable consequence of ilV legal causes-- and that it is therefore not within his province to demand, unconditional removal of the consequences without an attempt to provide for the removal of the cause -of the evil. DES MOINES "CAPITAL-- A careful reading of the note will disclose nothing new. . . . It is written in rather .an unfriendly and in a wholly critical spirit. . . . The note is an offense against the Intelligence and dlgftlty of the United States, but it affords no occasion of suspending diplomatic relations or going to war. COUNQIL BLUFFS NONPAREIL-- The German reply to President Wilson's note leaves two courses open to him. He can back up or go ahead. In no sense is the reply an .affirmative answer to the demand that' submarine warfare be brought into harmony with International law. The -new order issued to: submarine commanders leaves the door open to them to do as they please. ' ' ' " I KANSAS, ATCHISON GLOBE-- More notes, more complications, more Intensified bitterness against the .United States. We should have maintained a "hands-ofC" policy and should have warned Americans to remain at home. I L L I N O I S . CHICAGO TRIBUNE -- The German 'lot'e -embodies the-essential-concesslon to · he, demand of the latest American note ' n Submarine operation. This concession is conditional, but its immediate effect Is to '^rinr al ut 'he cessation of sub- KENTUCKY.^. LOUISVILLE TIMES--The unofficial text 'Of the German note serves notice that the United States ^must. either force England to end her blockade of foodstuffs or acquiesce in a continuance of Germany's methods of submarine warfare along the lines _already__laicl down. This r, . . means either the .United States must recede * . . or Yt must break with Germany, · The President has an- n'ounced what his course would be under those conditions.' T^e country .stands with, him.--; -- _ _ . . LOUISVILLE COURIER JOURNAL-It (the German response) would be satisfactory to Americans but for two considerations. One is that Germany is a bankrupt In good faith . . . the other is that everi if she means this time to keep her word and observe the law, her admission that she will hold herself at liberty to go back .to law breaking unless we succeed in our efforts to make Great Britain observe the law. The latter consideration, of course; will have no weight at, Washington.__ MARYLAND. BALTIMORIiUSEWS -- The United States demanded the establishment of a certain status quo. Germany has established it. How long she can or will maintain it is another question.. But for- the time being we are left nothing to cojn- plain of. BALTIMORE SUJS--Knowing the dimS culties with whicKthe German government is contending, we can well afford to overlook what in -other circumstances wmild be presumption or impudence. The note leaves this country in more or less suspense. But it does, apparently, avert immediate trouble. For this we may all be thankful. . . BALTIMORE AMERICAN--Berlin has let itself down easily, but not gracefully nor satisfactorily. But it Invites this country to construe its answer as satisfactory and this the . country, .In d 'e course, will do. ^ '_ MASSACHUSETTS. BOSTON GLOBE--As to whether t not' is .acceptable t'* the Amei can cor monwealth, it is hard to seo why wo should give Ambassador Bernstorff his passports. It we v do Germany will have proved her contention that our neutrality is farcical and that we really move than syn\pathlze with her enemies. As to whether we shall do as Germany requests regarding Great Britain, it is fairly evident that today's note makes such a step all the more difficult. BOSTON EVENING TRANSCRIPT-It (the note) will mollify the public mind of Germany and--muddle the public mind of the United States. It is pitched in a tone so sneering us to satisfy the Germans and couched in terms so clever aa to mislead many Americans. . Whether the German rejoinder will bo accepted by our government depends solely upon tho interpretation placed upon it by President Wilson. BOSTON TRAVELER--The note Is an amusing combination of evasions, denial, irony and fact. It is an Invitation to the President to begin a new series of communications and "the services of humanity" is dragged in after/the Frost- dent's own fashion, as if tQ, make him wonder whether the Kaiser is patting him on the back or poking fun at him._ BOSTON RECORD--Germany's reply is an evasion and an invitat'ion. to further correspondence'and argument.-. It does contain one paragraph of concession, but qualifies it with an effort to bafgain with the United States in her relations with Great Britain. The reply meets the' posl- tlyeness of our April 19 note with vagueness of word and promise. * WORCESTER GAZETTE-~The Kaiser's note is an effort to save himself and his dynasty. In the endeavor he is Juggling with Germany^ fate. What the concessions are does not matter. . . . . It Will be the President of the United States who severs · relations with Germany--and no other source appears open to him--buf it will be the Kaiser of Germany who dictated what the course must be and he stands morally responsible for the future consequences, even as he stands responsible for the European war_ Itself^ The^GefhTan'answer to AinertcSnrtioTe'ts^ ··No." .._ MICHIGAN. THE DETROIT JOURNAI^--The German reply means: "We will behave if you make England behave." THE GRAND R/- PIDS PRESS--Although conceding something to the American demand that submarine warfare against merchant vessels-be reduced to the rigid requirements of international law, the German reply may b'e found insufficient at Washington. Its language is in striking contrast to previous notes- sent from Berlin. Although this harshness upon close examination may seem, more apparent than real, designed To placate-German sentiment rather than affront the United States,' it gives ground to the assumption that in spite of concessions diplomatic relations are about to be broken. : M I S S O U R I . ' --~ ST. JOSEPH NEWS-PRESS--For the present at least the American demand ,has been complied with. So long as the new oixiers to submarine commanders remain in effect there will be nothing at issue. , , " MINNESOTA. MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL--While tho United States can nevet-admlt Germany's right tinder any circumstances to violate international law in the use of the new weapon of undersea warfare, it should uow proceed with all dispatch to push the negotiations, with Great Britain initiated more than a year ago. Our hand is now free and our duty is 'clear. While Germany was illegally killing out citizens we could not seem to condone her course by calling Great Britain sharply to time. But if Germany now means what she says, we must insist on British observance of well- recognized neutral rights. , ST. PAUL DISPATCH--Germany's new sea -order is a real concession. Standing alone and without the uncoiicealed string at the end of the note, it might' open tho way to a complete understanding and the renewal of old-time cordiality. As it is, the situation is left clouded and doubtful. ' . DULUTH HERALD--The decision is with Woodrow "VVilsun. --4*. he can find in this note the possibility of continuing cordial relations .with Germany while reserving the-iiatlon'sjself-re.spect American will rejoice. If he finds such possibility, every American will, get behind him, Aeetmeiritha ' Strauss Arcade. sv w ^ ^ 1 f j^d^E ^MKw ,;.|0*** *'·* ri *.'

NEW YORK HERALD--There are two tilings that 'he (President Wilson) can do. One is to sever diplomatic relations with Sermany immediately. The tone of the note in itself would be .Justification for that. .On the other hand, he can. sit down and wait. He will not have to wait long. There is no way out of the difficulties of ;he United States with Germany except .hrouglv Germany abandoning its illegal use ofTthe submarine.' This it will not do. The break seems bound to come iii the ·ery nature of things. It would perhaps be better to have it come now. NEW YORK EVENING. -POST--All told, the German reply has the appearance of being as little conciliatory as words could make it.

It Is imnossl- ble at this writing to give, to t h o G e r m a n note the full and careful consideration to which it is entitled, but it in evidently not the reply for which the President and the American people, who desire to main* tain friendly relations w i t h Germany, had hoped. · : BUFFALO .TIMES--Summarized, the German answer tu Preside it Wilson's ultimatum in the submarine controversy seeks to make coTfTTTiiance with the requirements of our government conditional upon action which Germany desires of Great Britain. The, controversy with which Berlin lias t o ' d e a l is wholly between Germany and ourselves. It can not lie made .'conditional upon anything which -that Germany betrays great anxiety, !

Nothing remains but government makes damnable faces all through Its note,, but the central thing required by President Wilson it yields distinctly warned Jtffainst. Germany, as expected, has put the matter up to the United'States, our duty to stand by the President.

There is ho compliance or substantial compliance. The little that Is conceded' Is conceded conditionally. No choice would thus seem open to our_ government but to carry out Its declared intention to sever diplomatic relations. TvTEW YORKER HEROLD--The contents of the German note, which the statesmen at Brlin have drafted In no light-minded spirit, but after long and serious consideration of every point involved, confirms our assumption that the Imperial government -Is prepared to go a very 'long way toward meetltig us, It offers a measure^of^coriclliatjon, which, in turn alSords to any responsible statesman the opportunity to remove all difficulties In an attempt toward arriving at a p'er- manent understanding.

WATKHTO.WN (N. Y.) TlMEg'--.The time has struck for a severance of diplomatic, relations. Tn fact, It struck long ago. If America had sent Von Bernstorff hrime the day after the Lusltanln was ·sunk and if we had begun training an army-of half a million men on that day Germany would havo desisted from her I n h u m a n methods of underseas warfare many months ago. BROOKLYN S T A N D A R D UNION--The United States will never consent to hiive observance of American rights made- fl«--- pendent upon the relations of foreign nations with each other. -.- . . It is conceivable that President Wilson may accept these orders, given to t h e submarine commanders as sufficient reason for Jntercourse, can surely be prevented from plunging into a quarrel whose consequences can · not be estimated, for we assume that in AVashington, no less than In Berlin, the will to arrive at an amicable arrangement exists. . . . We, can do nothing 'else at this moment than cSll upon him ( t h e President) to grasp the extended liana of. Germany, to pave the way toward an understanding-, to proceed with a clarification of such points as remain at issue. AVe know that in this demand we are at one. with the vast ma- Jorlty of the American people. NKW YORK TUIBUNK--ivtr: Wilson can do but one thing.
