United Statei Government Clean
Way and Raider at Midnight
Ready to Slip Away.
NEWPOItT NEWS. Va., April 7.
At 1 o'clock this morning the Ger
man auxiliary cruiser Prim Eltcl
Krtcdrlch still was at Us pier.
Shortly before midnight tonight
everything appeared to he in readi
ness for the German auxiliary cruiser
Prlnz Eitel Friedrich to leave the
Newport News 6hip yards.
Collector of Customs Hamilton,
who had visited the Eitel during the
evening, was given a jovial farewell
by the officer?. The first officer in
vited him to Btay aboard, saying: "I
vish you would remain and go with
niiU Farewell.
Commander Thierichens, it was
learned, had bade farewell to Ameri
can government official In his visits
today to the battleship Alabama and
to the customs house. The collector
In turn wished the German com
mander and his officers bon voyage.
At 11 o'clork tonight Admiral Beatty,
'(innianriant at the Norfolk navy yard,
ti-animlttod a radiogram to the custom
house here. Collector Hamilton remained
at his cfllce awaiting developments. At
taches of the office were keeping In
touch with the Grmnn ship as closely
iia poscitle. That no one knew exactly
what were the plans of the German torn
lntmler seemed apparent.
A newspaper boat, which steamed tip
the river, the only point from which the
rcldor could be seen was not picked up
by the German cruiser's searchlights as
Vad been tha case on previous occasions.
I"vn the naval tug Patuxent did not
flash Its lights until the dlBpatch boat
had passed. On tctrd ship there appeared
to be aetlvlly, but there were fsw lights
and ports were heavily curtained.
War Cleared.
The way for the raider to leave was
cleared today by the United States gov
ernment. Orders were given to pilots
not to take the merchant ship of any
tcHlvercnt cncir.y of Germany out of
Norfolk and Newport until further
notice. Tho order went Into effect about
11 o'clock today, following a direction by
Hiltleh authorities lafet night to British
captains not to clear their ships after
noon of any uay while the Eltcl's status
vmnined In doubt.
Tho tovernn cut's action served to
.lroiuo Hit iiritish authorities conslder-
pbly when iippeuls for information as to
when thij pilotir.u ban would be lifted
met with no explanation.
British Government
Blamed for Loss of
Life Upon Falaba
WASHINGTON. April .-In an of
ficial statement today at the German
embassy quoting a message from Berlin,
the government places the responsibility
of the loss of life on board the British
steamer Falaba upon the British govern
ment reiterating Germany's warning to
neutral passengers on ships crossing the
war aono. military necessity is given as
the reason for option of (submarine
which prevents them from saving lives.
The embassy message was as follows:
"Tho German ambassador has received
the following official message from Ber
lin: 'A report from the submarine has
not yet been received. However, accord
ing to trustworthy reports, the sub
marine requested the steamer Falaba to
put passengers and crew into lifeboats
whnn other ships came up. Lately Eng
lish merchant ships have, been provided
with guns by the British government and
advisedto ram or otherwise attack Ger
man submarines. This advice has re
peatedly been followed In order to win
promised rewards. Military necessity
consequently forced the submarine to act
quickly, which made granting of longer
space of Urns for the saving of Uvea Im
possible. ' 'Too German government regrets the
sacrifices of human lives, but both Brit
ish ships 'and neutral passengers on
board ships were warned urgently and in
time not to cross the war sone. Re
sponsibility rests, therefore with the
British government, which contrary to
international law, inaugurated commercial
war against Germany and contrary to
International law has caused merchant
ships to offer armed resistance.' "

TIIK llAtU K (via London), April .--Both
Henry Van lyke. tlio American am
bassador io The Netherlands, and Gilford
l'ln hot. attached to tho American lega
tion, Une endeavored to the utmost to
keep the matter of Mr. Plnchot's expul
sion from Belgium by the Germans from
publicity lest such action should render
more difficult the work of relief In Bel
glum, Involving the smvor of 9.MW.HM des
titute people of that country and tho
northern provinces of France. .
Mr. IMiiehot. however, on learning todny
that the Incident had been published,
gave tho Associated l'ress the following
signed statement:
AfUed to He Member.
' Some time ago I wns asked by Herbert
C. Hoover to liecome a member of tho
Commission for liellef In lVelglum and to
take charge of the feeding of the French
In tho Invaded provinces north of the
Gorman lines After going twice to the
continent, arrangements finally were
completed and guarantees given to the
commission by the German government
that the American commission's food
would not be taken.
"I came to Tho Hague and reported tm
medlntely to lr. Van Dyke, to whose
legation I was attached by orders from
Washington, with the specific duty of
representing the commission of relief In
feeding the civil population In northeast
ern France within the German lines.
Sent to Antwerp.
"Dr. Van Dyke procured from the Ger
man legation at The Hague the necessary
papers for entering Belgium. On March
30 I went with my wife in a commission
automobile and was accompanied by u
Brussels representative of the commis
sion to the Belgian frontier, where my
diplomatic and commission passes were
examined. After three hours' delay we
were sent under an armed escort to Ant
"Tbe next morning orders came from
the German governor. General von Blss
lng, through the head of the pass office
in Antwerp, that we were to leave Bel
gium without delay. No ron was as
signed for this action.
Reason for Kx pulsion.
"Before leaving, however, 1 received a
letter from the American minister at
Bruseels, Brand Whltiock, saying that
the reason given him by General von
Blsslug for our expulsion was my rela
tionship to the British minister at The
Hague, Sir Alan Johnstone, who married
my sifter, and the fact that I had stayed
with him at The Hague on my way to
Belgium. Accordingly, we returned to
Holland on March 31, and since then have
been staying with the American minister
at The Hague awaiting instructions from
"In entering and leaving Belgium, Mrs.
Tlnchot and I were searched by the Ger
man military authorities.
"I cannot close this statement without
expressing the deep Impression made
upon moby what I saw of the work of
the American Commission for Relief In
Belgium and especially by the warm ex
pressions of gratitude and appreciation
which came to to me from every side
end all classes of people, including many
of the leaders of the province In which
Antwerp lies."
Must Have German
Dyes or Close Up
Many Textile Mills
WASHINGTON, April 6. Represents
tives of American textile manufacturers
headed by former Congressman Metz told
White House and State department Gla
cials today that "the end is in sight'
for operations of American textile mills
unless the government can do something
to bring dyestuffB out of Germany.
They were assured by Secretary Turn
ulty and Counselor Lansing that the ques
tion would be taken up for further effort
The manufacturers told officials that the
supply of dyestuffs In the United tftates
was now practically exhausted.
The committee declared that it had
been In communication with manufactur
ers in twenty-eight states and had found
that mills employing 400.W0 operatives
would face being closed within thirty to
sixty days unless relief cornea They de
clared that other buslnoss which would
ultimately feel the need of German dye
stuffs will have to throw many other
men out of work. '
Members of the committee declared that
efforts to produce dye-stuffs in the United
States can be of no practical value for
some time.
The committee asked that the govern
ment seek to have Britain lighten the
stringency of the recent order in council
preventing the exportation of all goods
from Germany or of German origin.
