Army Officer, In Report to Washing

Washington, July 23. Official re
ports given out at tho war department,
indicating widespread starvation In
Mexico; tho apparent falluro of the
Cnrranza government to sustain Itself
In Mexico City, and tho reoccupatlon
f tho national capital by tho Zapatis
tas, gave rlso to tho view nguln In of
ficial circles that President Wilson,

plan for tho pacification of the repub
lic. IJrlg, Gen. C. A. Dovol, sent by tho
wnr department to tako charge of tho
American Hed Cross' efforts to relievo
tho suffering In Mexico, has mado a
report on conditions there It Is re
garded as of great significance that it
should have been made public at this
tlmo by Mr. Garrison.
General Dovol expresses tho opinion
that tho people of Mexico are being
abused by tho leaders of "all factions,"
and that "there appears to bo no fu-
turo for adequate relief, oven If the
American people would contrlbuto for
this purpose, This, howover, they
havo only dono to a very limited ex
tent to this dato."
General Dovol says there havo been
largo exports of food supplies out of
Mexico to tho United Stntcs and to
Cuba. Ho estimates that two thou
sand carloads of beans havo boon Bent
out of tho country. Ho states that
General Villa and his generals havo
prohibited tho purchase of supplies in
Mexico becauso there is an export tax
which Is collected for tho benefit of
tho military loaders and Jhls amounts
to four hundred to flvo hundred dol
lars for each car that crosses tho bor
der. Tho Red Cross was not permit
ted to buy supplies in Mexico although
corn could bo purchased on tho Mexi
can sklo for flfty-slx cents per bushel.
Tho Mexicans Insisted that it should

London, July 22. The German and
Austrian armies have been victorious
all along tho wholo 1,000-mile Russian

tho province of that name, and 57
miles south of Warsaw, has been oc

Allied cavalry Is astride tho Impor

or is on tho verge of being evacu

having issued an order that In case

wishes tho American navy to stand
upon equality with tho most efficient
and serviceable lighting sea force
maintained by any power.
This determination the president has
reached without regard to present-day
controversies. It Is part of his plan
for permanent national defenses,
which plnn also includes a definite
program for tho development and
equipment of tho army.
Tho president has called for reports
on tho subject of national defense
These will bo made to him personally

questions of permanent national pol

defense from every available profes

ditions of defense that have been
evolved out of modern experience have
been called upon for tholr'VIews. Tho
president not only wishes advice from
those who have knowledge of actual
conditions of warfare existing In Eu
rope today but ho is seeking light
from those who aro able to compre
hend all possible phases of altered
conditions on both land and sea.
Tho fact that ho desires an adequato
and efficient navy was especially
made clear here Saturday.
As to tho army, It is known hero
thnt the president Is preparing to in

gress a definite program relating to
tho development nnd equipment of
this branch of the service. It will pro

FREEDOM OF SEAS
AMERICA'S LATEST NOTE GIVES
GERMANY FINAL WARNING.
WILL MAKE NO COMPROMISE
Berlin Informed Further Violation of
U. S. Rights Will Be Held
Washington, D. C Followinc Is
tho official text of the Ameri
can note of July 21, to Germany re
garding' submnrlno warfare, which
as delivered to tho forolcn office nt.
Berlin by Ambassador Gerard:
The Secretary of State to Ambassa
dor uerard Department of State:
Washington. You nro Instructed tn
deliver toxtually tho following note
to tno minister of foreign affairs.
The note of the lninerial German
government dated the 8th of July,
1915, has received the careful consid
eration of tho government of tho
United States and It regrets to bo
obliged to say that It has found It
ery unsatisfactory, becauso it falls
to meet the real differences between
tho two governments and Indicates
no way In which the accepted princi
ples of law and humanity mar be an-
plied In the grave mattoKpin contro-
veiay, uui proposes, on mo contrary,
arrangements for a partial suspension
of those principles, which virtually
sets them aside.
One Satisfying Point.
Tho government of the United
States notes with satisfaction that
tho Imperial German government rec
ognizes without reservation the va
lidity of the principles Insisted in tho
several communications which this
government has addressed to the Im
perial German government with re
gard to Its announcement of a war
zone nnd tho use of submarines
against merchantmen on the high
ens the principle that the high seas
arc free, that the character and cargo
of a merchantman must 'first be as
sertalned before she can lawfully be
3elzed or destroyeil'and that the lives
of non-combatants may In no caso be
put In jeopardy unless the vessel re
sists or seeks to to escape after being
summoned to submit to examination,
for a belligerent act of retaliation is
per so an act beyond the law, and
tho defense of an act as retaliatory
Is an udmission that it is illegal.
The government of tho United
States Is, however, keenly disappoint
ed to find that the Imperial German
government regards itself as exempt
from the obligation to observe these
principles, even where neutral ves
sels aro concerned, by what it be
lieves the policy and practice of tho
government of Great Britain to be in
tho present war with regard to neu
tral commerce. The v imperial Ger
man government will readily under
stand that the government of the
United States cannot discuss tho pol
icy of the government of Great Brit
ain with regard to neutral trade ex-
cept with that government Itself, and
that it must regard the conduct of
either belligerent government as ir
relevant to any discussion with tlio
Imperial German government of what
this government regards a grave and
unjustifiable violation of the rights of
American citizens by German naval
commanders. Illegal and inhuman
abt, however justifiable they mav
bo thought to bo against an enomy
who is believed to have acted in con
travention of law and humanity, aro
manifestly Indefensible when thoy de
prive neutrals of their acknowledged
rights, particularly when they vlo
lato tho right to life itself.
If a belligerent cannot retaliate
against an enemy without injuring
the lives of neutrals as well as their
property, humanity, as well as Jus
tice and a due regard for the dignity
of neutral powers, should dictate
that tho practice be discontinued. If
persisted in it will under such cir
cumstances constltuto nn unpardon
able offense against the sovereignty
of tho neutral nation affected. Tho
government of tho United States Is
not unmindful of tho extraordinary
conditions created by this war or of
tho radical alteration of circum
stnncos and method of attack pro
duced by the use of Instrumentalities
of naval warfare which tho nations
of tho world cannot have had in view
when tho existing rules of Interna
tional law were formulated, and it Is
rendy to make every reasonable al
lowance for theso novel nnd unex
pected nspects of war nt sea: but It
cannot consent to nbato any essential
or fundamental right of Its people, be
cause of alteration of circumstances.

Monopoly Would End Crisis.
Washington. D." C.-"It tho govern
ment had a monopoly in manufacture
of war munitions, tho present strain!
relat'ons with Germany and chaotic
conditions among workers would not
exist," snld Congressman Tavenner
The rights of noutrals In tlmo of war
nro based upon principles, not upon
expediency, nnd tho principles nro Im
mutable. It Is the duty and obliga
tion of belligerents to find n way to,
ndnpt tho new circumstances to them.
The events of tho past two months.
havo clearly indicated that it Is pos
sible and practical to conduct such
submarino operations as have charac
terized tho activity of tho imperial
Gorman navy within tho socnllcd war
cono In substantial accord with tho
accepted practices of regulated war
fare. The whole world has looked
with interest and increasing satisfac
tion at tho demonstration of that pos.
slblllty by German naval commanders.
It Is manifestly possible, therefore,
to lift tho wholo practice of submarine
attack above tho criticism which it
has aroused and remove tho chief
causes of offense.
Quick Action Expected.
In view of tho admission of illegal
ity .made by tho imperial government
when it 'pleaded tho right of retalia
tion in defense of its acts and in view
of tho manifest possibility of con
forming to tho established rules ot
naval warfare, tho government of the"-
United States cannot believe that the
imperial government will longer re
frain from disavowing the wanton act
of its naval commander, in sinking
the Lusltnnia or from offering repara
tion for the American lives lost so
far as reparation can bo mado for tho
needless destruction of human life by
an illegal act.
The government of tho. United
States, while not indifferent to the-
friendly spirit In which it is made,
cannot accept the suggestion of the
Imperial government that certaia
vessels be designated and agreed up
on which shall bo freo on the seas
now illegally proscribed. The very
agreement would, by inplication, sub
ject other vessels to illegal attack
and would be a curtailment and there
fore an abandonment of the princi
ples for which this government con
tends and which in times of calmer
counsels every nation would concedo
as of course.
The government of the United
States and the lninerial German gov
ernment aro contending for the same
great object, and have long stood to
gether in urging the very' principles
upon which the government, of the
United States now so solemnly in
sists. They are both contending for
the freedom of the seas. The govern
ment of the United States will con
tinue to contend for that freedom,
from whatever ouarter violated, with
out compromise nnd at any cost. It
invites the practical co-operation or
the imperial German government at
this tlmo when co-oneration may ac
complish most and this great common
object be most strikingly and effect
The Imperial German government
expresses the hopo that this object
may bo in some measure accomplished
even before the present war ends. It
can be. The government of the
United States not only feels obligated
to insist upon it by whomsoever vio
lated, or Ignored, and in the protec
tion of Its own citizens, but is also
deeply interested In seeing It mado
practicable between the belligerents
thmselves and holds itself ready at
any time to act as the common friend
who may bo privileged to suggest a
In the meantime the very value
which this government sets upon the
long and unbroken friendship be
tween the people and government of
the United States and the people and
government or the German nation im
pels it to impress very solemnly upon
tho imperial government tno necessity
for a scrupulous observance or neu
tral rlchts In this critical matter.
Friendship itself prompts It to say to
the imperial German government that
repetition by the commanders of tho
German naval vessels of acts in con
travention of those rights must tie
rppnnled bv the government of the
United States when they nffect Amer
ican citizens as deliberately un
friendly. .(Signed) LANSING.
