Joint Session Hears of Action
That May Result in Broken
GERMANY SHARPLY INDICTED
Mr. Wilson Sets Forth Progress of
Kaiser's Submarine Warfare, His
Futile Promises and the Final Ex

Indicting (Jormany for Its uso of sub
marines nguiiiHt merchant vessels,
President Wilson yesterday, before a
Joint session of congress, Issued pub'
lie notice to the world that unless that
Kovurnmcnt changes Its methods the
United States will have no choice
but to sever diplomatic relations.
"Tho history In the making," was
witnessed by ono of tho largest gath
erings that has ever been Jammed Into
tho historic chamber of thu house of
representatives. livery single Inch
of available space was occupied, while
literally thousands were turned away.
There was no questioning tho seri
ousness of tho president's position
Ills voice, somewhat husky, penetrated
every corner of tho room, and the
messago was emphasized with un ex
pression that showed Its author was
Tearful of tho outcome. That serious
ncss was sharod by the audleuco, thu
usual applause given tho president's
utterances being absent.
Tho message In erery senso was an
ultimatum. True, It contained no tlmo
limit within which reply must be made.
Hut It flatly Insisted that the German
submarine warfare lias reached tlu
stago when this government will no
longer tolerate It.
Tho (lorman explanations, previous
ly made, have been accepted In good
faith, the president said, in tho hope
thnt thut government would finally
be able to so order and control tho acts
of its naval commanders ns to snuiiro

"It will bo recalled that In Fcbru
ary. 11115, the Imperial Herman govern
ment announced Its Intention to tieat
the waters surrounding Great Ilritaln
nnd Ireland ns embraced within tho
eat of war nnd to destroy all mer
chant ships owned by Its enemies that
might ' found within any part of
that portion of the high seas, and that
it warned nil vessels, of neutral as
well ns of belllgurent ownership, to
keep out of tho waters It had thus
prescribed, or else enter them at their
peril. 'I ho government of tho United
States earnestly protested It took
the position that such a policy could
not bo pursued without tho prnctlcn'
certainty of gross and palpable viola
tlons of the law of nations, particular
ly If submarine craft wore to be em
ployed as Its Instruments, Inasmuch ns
the rules prescribed by that law, rules
founded upon principles of humanity
and established for tho protection of
the lives of noncombatants at sea
could not in tho nature cf the caso be
observed by such vessels It based
its protest on tho ground that persons
of neutral nationality and vessels of
neutral ownership would bo exposed
to extreme and Intolerable risks, nnd
thnt no right to close any part of the
high seas against their use or to ex
pose them to such risks could lawfully
bonsscrtcd by any belligerent govern
ment. Tho law of nations in these
matters, upon which tho government
of tho United Stntes based Its protect
is not of recent origin or founded upon
niorcly arbitrary principles sot up by

trary, upon manifest and Imperative

"What hns actually happened In tho
year which has since elapsed lias
shown that those hopes were not Justl
lied, those assurances Insusceptible of
being fulfilled In pursuance of tho
policy of submarine warfare against
the commerce of its adversaries, thus
announced and entered upon by thu
Imperlnl German government In
despite of the solemn protest of this
government, the commanders of Ger
man undersea vessels have attacked
merchant ships with greater and k cat
er activity, not only upon tho high
sens surrounding Great Hrltnln and
Ireland, hut wherever they encounter
them, in a way that has grown tnoro
nnd tnoro ruthless, more and more
Indiscriminate us the montliB have
gone by, less and less observant of re
straints of any kind; and have deliv
ered their attacks without compunc
tion against vessels of every nationality
and bound upon every sort of er
rand. Vessels of neutral ownership
oven vessels of neutral ownership
bound from neutral port to neutral
port, have been destroyed along with
vessels of belligerent ownership, In
constantly increasing numbers. Some
times the merchantman attacked has
been warned and Httmmoned to sur
render before being llred on or tor
pedoed; sometimes passengers or
crews have heen vouchsafed the poor
security of being allowed to take to
the ship's boats before slio was sent
to the bottom Hut ngnln and again
no wnrnlng lias been given, no escape
even to the ship's boats allowed to
thoso on board. What this government
loresaw must linppen has happened
Tragedy has followed tragedy on tho
sens in such fashion, with such at
tendant circumstances, as to mnko It
grossly evident that warfare of such a
sort, If warfare It lie. cannot bo car
ried on without the most palpable
violation of the dictates alike of right
and of humanity. Whatever the dispo
sition and intention of tho Imperial
German government, it has manifestly
proved Impossible for It to keep such
mot boils of attack upon tho commerce
of its enemies within bounds set by
either the reason or tho heart of man
kind. As to Armed Merchantmen.
"In February of tho present year tho
imperial German government Informed
this government and tho other neutral
gnwrmnenlH of tho world that It had
reason to believe that the government
of Great Ilritaln hnd turned all mer
chant vessels of llritish ownership and
had given them secret orders to attack
any suhmarino of the enemy they
might encounter upon tho neas. and
that the Imperial Get man government
felt Justified in tho clicumstanccs In
treating all armed merchantmen or
belligerent ownership ns auxiliary ves
sels of war, which It would have tho
right to destroy without warning.
"The law of tuitions lias long rec
ognized tho right of merchantman to
carry arms for protection nnd to uso
tliem to repel attack, though to usu
them, in such circumstances, at their
own risks; but tho Imperial German
go; eminent claimed the right to set
these understandings asldo In circum
stances which It deemed extraordi
nary. Kven tho terms In which It an
nounced its purpose thus still furth
er to relax the restraints it had pre
viously professed its willingness and
desire to put upon the operations of Its
submarines carried the plain Impli
cation that at least vessels which
were not armed would still bu exempt
from destruction without wnrnlng nnd
that personal safety would bo accord
ed their passengers nnd crows; but
even that limitation, If it was over
practicable to obsorvo It, lias in fact
constituted no check nt all upon thu
destruction of ships of every sort.
"Again ami again tho imperial Ger
man government lias given tills gov
ernment its solemn assurances that at
least passenger ships would not be
thus doalt with, and yet It has again
and again permitted its undersea com
manders to disregard these assur
ances with entire impunity. Great
liners like tho Lusltuula and tho Ar
abic nnd mere ferry boats Ilka tho
Sussex liavo been attacked without
a moment's warning, sometimes he
fore they hnd even becomo awaro that
they were in tho presence of an nrmed
vessel of ttie enemy, and the lives of
tioucombatants, passengers and crow,
have boon sacrificed whoicsalo, in a
manner which tho government of tho
United States cannot regard ns
wanton and without thu slightest col
or of justification No limit of any
kind has in fact been set to tho Indis
criminate pursuit and destruction of
merchantmen of nil kinds and nation
alities within thu waters, constantly
extending in area, whoro theso oper
ations have been carried on, and tho
roll of Americans who have lost their
lives on ships thus attacked and de
stroyed hns grown month by month
until the ominous toll has mounted In
to thu hundreds,

fare was that of thu destruction of
tho French cross-ehnnnol steamer
Sussex. It must stand forth, ns tho
sinking of tho steamer Lusltuula did,
as so singularly tragical and unjustl
liable ns to constitute a truly terrible
example of the Inhumanity of stibmn
rlno warfare as tho commanders of
Germnn vessels hnve for tho past
twelve months been conducting
it. If this Instance stood alone, somo I

unhappily It does not stand alone.
Recent events mnko tho conclusion
Inevitable that it is only one Instance,
even though It he ono of tho most ox
tremo and distressing Instances, of
the spirit and method of warfare
which the imperial German govern
ment has mistakenly adopted, nnd
which from the llrst exposed that gov
ernment to tho reproach of thrusting
nil neutral right') asldo In pursuit of
its Immediate objects.
"The government of the United
Slates lias heen very patient. At ev
ery stago of this distressing experi
ence of tragedy sifter tragedy in which
its own citizens were involved It had
sought to bu restrained from nny ex
treme course of action or of protest
by n thoughtful consideration of the
extraordinary circumstances of this
unprecedented war and actuated in
all it bald or did by tho sentiments of
genuine friendship which the people
of the United States have always en
tertained and continue to entertain to
ward the German nation. It has, of
course, accepted tho sttccesslvu expla
nations nnd assurances of the Impe
rial German government ns given in
entlro sincerity and good faith, nnd
has hoped, oven against hope, that it
would prove to be posslblo for tho
German government so to order nnd
control tho acts of Its naval comman
ders as to siiuaro Its policy with tho
principles of humanity hb embodied
in tho law of nations. It has boon
willing to wait until thu Hlgullicauca
of thu facts hucamu absolutely unmis
takable and susceptible of but ono In
terpretation. "That point hns now unhappily been
reached. Thu facts aro susceptiblo
of hut ono Interpretation. Tho Itnpo
rlnl German government has been tin
nblu to put nny limit or restraints
upon Its warfare against olther freight
or passenger ships. It lias therefore
becomo painfully evident that thu po
sition which this government took at
tho very outset Is inevitable, nuniely,
that tho use of submarines for tho de
struction of an enemy's commerce is
of necessity, becauso of tho very char
acter of the vessels employed nnd tho
very methods of attack which their
employment of course Involves, in
compatible with tho principles or hu
manity, the long-established and incon
trovertible rights of neutrals, and tho
snored Immunities of non-combatants.
Virtual Ultimatum Sent.
"1 have deemed It my duty, there
fore, to say to thu Imperlnl Gorman
government that If It is still its pur
pose to prosecuto ruthless nnd Indis
criminate ivarfaru against vessels of
commerce by tho uso of submarines,
notwithstanding tho now demon
strates Impossibility of conducting
thnt warfaro in necordanco with what
tho government of tho I'nlted Stntes
must consider tho sacred anil Indis
putable rules of International luw and
tho universally recognized dictates of
humanity, tho government of tho
United States is at last forced to tho
conclusion thut tlnro Is hut ono
course It can pursue; nnd thut unless
tho imperial Gorman government
should now Immediately declare and
effect un abandonment of Its present
methods of warfare against passonger
and freight carrying vessels this gov
ernment can have no choice but to
sovor diplomatic relations with tho
government of tho German emplro al
together. "This decision I havo arrived nt
with tho keenest regret; tho possibil
ity of the action contemplated I an
suro all thoughtful Americans will
look forward to with unaffected reluc
tance. Hut wo cannot forgot that wo
nro In somo sort and by tho forco of
