"Recalling the humane and enlightened-
attitnde hitherto assumed
by the imperial German government
In matters of International right, and
particularly with reirard to the free
dom of the aeaa; having learned to
recognise the German views and the
German Influence In the field of In
ternational obligation as always en
gaged upon the side of Justice and
humanity; and having understood the
Instruction! of Imperial German gov
ernments to ita naval commanders to
be upon the aame plane of humane
action prescribed by the naval codea
of all other nations, the government
of the United States waa loath to
believe It cannot now bring Itself
to believe that these acts, ao abso
lutely contrary to the rules, the prac
tices and the spirit of modern war
fare, could have the countenance or
sanction of that great government.

"It feels n to be Its duty, therefore,
to addreaa the Imperial German gov

utmost frankness, and in the earnest

correct the unfortunate impreBlons
which have been created and vindi
cate once more- the position of that
government with regard to the aacred
freedom of the sea.
"The government of the United
Statea has been apprised that the im

extraordinary circumstances of the

assumes Rale Accepted.
"It does not understand the Im
perial German government to ques
tion those rights. It assumes, on the
contrary, that the Imperial govern
ment acepts, as a matter of course,
the rule that the lives of noncom
batants, whether they be of neutral
citizenship or cltlsens of any of the
nations at war, cannot lawfully or
rightfully be put in Jeopardy by the
capture or destruction of an unarmed'
merchantman, and recognisea also, as
all other nations do, the obligation to
take the uaual precaution of visit and
search to ascertain whether a aus-1

"The government of the t'nlted Statea,
therefore, desires to call the attent'on of
the Imperial German government with
the utmost earnestness to the fact that
the objection to their present method of
attack against the trade of their enemies I
lies In the practical Impossibility of em
ploying submarine In th destruction -of
commerce without disregarding those

The Formal Warning.
"There was recently published In the ,

of calling the attention of the Imperial

of the I'nlted 8tate through the new,

has hern with the r.iaraitcr of Ihe Im

Ptatea cannot believe that the com
manders of th vessel, which committed
these acta of lawlessness, did so except
under a misapprehension of the orders
Issued by tha Uerman naval authorities
It takes It for granted that, at least
within th practical possibilities of every
such rase, the commandera even of sub
marines were expected to do nothing that
would Involve the lives of noncombatanta
or the safety of neutral ships ven at th
cost of falling of their object, capture or
destruction. It oonftdently expects. there

ment will disavow th acts of which the
government of the I'nlted tUatea com
plains, that they will make reparation
o far as reparation I possible for tn
Jurle which are without measure and
that they will take Immediate steps to
prevent the recurrence of anything so
obviously subversive of the principles of
warfare for which the Imperial Uerman
government ha In the past so wisely
and to Tlrmly contended.
"Th government and people of th
I'nlted State look to the imperial German
government for Just and prompt ami en
lightened action In this vital matter with
the greater confidence because the United
