Maw York Frees: into tha end of hit
note to iBertln, President Wilson has put
some teeth and . not too many at that
Into tha end, because th front of It la
filled with thosa graceful but empty
rhetorical phrases which long ago ex
hausted th patlerma cf Americans, no
leas than they excited th derision of th
Berlin iDtlltarleta. ' ' ,
New York American: Tha ' president's
letter Is undeniably vigorous,' but It Is
possibly dangerous aa well. Th nation
desired that IU rightful demands sh6uld
be laid be for th Oennan. government,
but It did, not anMotpat that th presi
dent would go to far beyond th piataly
and soundly rtKhtful scope of those de
mands as to Invite a rebuff.
Hprlngfleld (Mass.) Republican: The
government's position In this esse la th
country's pnsftlon. It Is not extreme, yet
It covert the ground.
Huffalo (N. t.) Courier: Right-minded
men of Avery party will approve Ita ton
and Its tenor. The closeness, the defln
Itenott'wlth which thla presentation Is
made, can . satisfy the most rigid Ameri
canism thtt. views large affaire sanely.
It reenia td meet every requirement of
American patriotism and honor.
Buffalo . (N. T.) Express: Thar has
been' no backdown. Let the people's
response go out from every comer of the
land. We ar all Americans.
Albany, (K. Y.) Argus: Dignified In Ita
tone, logical In It argument and con
clusions, firm Irl Its demands, the United
State, note to flertnany reflects the poise
of th president. Wood row Wilson, under
nvt trying circumstances.
- Albany (N. T.) Knickerbocker Preaa:
The not places the Issue aqtiarely be
fore Oermany for action and on an
nouncement .of future policy acceptable
to , tha t'nlted. States government par
ticularly a policy, of sea warfare, must
ot 'long be delayed.
I Oelombua (O.) State Journal: How
Oermany will-promise to protect the
Hves and property of our people In th
future, or In what manner thla country
wilt, receive lis. refusal to, remalna to
be seen. It Ms a grave alternative, and
while it 1 not likely to result In war. It
will bring 'about an emt lty todard Oer
many that Will b nil! of anxiety.
Louisvlll Ky.) Ourier-Journal: The
note to Oermany meets the requirements
and' Is, such ss1 th government of the
T'nlted' States should eddreas to Berlin.
The preirtdsnt' leave little room for par
ley . and - none other than mouthlngs or
rupture remains for. Oermany .
Loulsvlil ' (Ky.) Antelger: We agree
with th president that th German gov
ernment .mutt' explain the losses of the
lived of American passrngers, but we
do , not' think that the death of Amer
icans gives th president tha right to de
mand th cessation of Germany's under
sea ..warfare against British commerce
so long as England does not abrogate Its
starvation '' warfare.
Chicago Trlbuns: Whatever the fate of
our .relations with. Oermany, the presi
dent'' undoubtedly, has voiced the senti
ment "cf ths nation- upon the use of the
submarine as . to - tha rights of neutrals
on tha high seas.
Chicago Herald: There Is now po pos
sibility of mistaking the position of our
government. And it la a position In which
th American' people will sustain In thslr
government In whatever measures may
be necessary to uphold It.
Indianapolis BUf: In manly fashion
th president's nots doss not shake the
logic of his position, but accepts the full
significance of his attitude.

ful diplomacy. Hoping for tha best, the
universal American sentiment will be
that America has do,ne Itt duty and tha
people will support the president through
whatever may be the consequences.
Springfield (III.) tate Journal: It 1
the dignified protest of a nation which
while feeling that It right and th
rights of other neutrals havs been viol
ated Is neither vindicative or resentful.
St. Louis Die Westliech Post: Fbr tb
preea of th whole country there Is at
preeent but on sacred duty, to leave
nothing undone to avert Inner strife.
That we Americans of Oerman descent
with a bleeding heart contemplate th
possibility of an armed conflict between
the United States and the land of our
forefathers, no fair minued person will
condemn us for. There I still hop for
sn honorable understanding on both
sides. May Providence grant that the
worst be averted.
New Torker Stasia Zettung: While th
Staata Zeltung makes no editorial com
ment on. President Wilson's note today,
reached to a wonderful height for foroe
It has th following to say, printed In
Kngllst-: . .
"Nor Is this a time to burden millions
of the American people with unjust and
unnecessary anguish of mind. The German-Americans
must suffer In any con
flict between the United State and Oer
many, pains of which their fellow
cltlxens can never know anything of.
It is rather a time for showing them th
greatest degree of consideration. They
have fought to uphold the flag In the
past and .they will do so again, against
any enemy whatsoever. They deserve
the fruit of past loyalty until they havs
forfeited the right to claim them. Then
never can be but one flag under which
he will ever fight and that flag Is the
Stsrs and Stripes."
Cincinnati Volsblatt: The note la dls
srpolntlng In that It dlsregsrds th Just
complaints of Oermany and appears to
espouse the cause of Great Britain. We
think that the difficulty admit of a
satisfactory solution by advising Ameri
can cittxens to travel on American ves
sel Unwittingly th president shelter
British cowardice, which tries to mako
British ships Immune to Oerman attacks
by taking American passengers aboard.
Cincinnati Frel Preese:. Th part of
th note dealing with th loa of Uvea In
th husltlana catastrophe more properly
ought to hav been directed to London.
England alone Is responsible (or the
Lusltanla's destruction through Its brutal
threat to etarve a nation. Oermany can
not atop th under sea warfare without
surrendering Itself bound hand and foot
to a brutal enemy. We ar not obliged
and have no rlcht to set up ourselves as
the itrotectors of British shipping.

ous possibilities, brushes aside all for
malities and In unmistakable lenguage
tells th kaiser' government what the
American people think of the series of
ln?tdnts leading up to the slaughter of
Innocents on board th Lusltanla.
Washington Post: The not I framed
In nvdorats Isnguage and leave abundant
opportunity for th Oerman government
to reply In a way that will restore good
feeling between th two countries.
The question Is now up to Ger
many. It Is unnecessary to speculate
whether the American note will lead to
war or peace, because th Issu rests
with Germany and not with ths United
Btstes. The alternative la dearly set
Boston Globe: President Wilson has not
shirked a grav responsibility. The
American not clearly shows that Ger
many must relent or take whatever con
sequences we may decide to adopt
Great ad Reaaowabl Paper.
Boston Herald: President Wilson had)
never written a great state paper more
esaotly suited to th occasion. We hop
most fervently that In a spirit of rea

the enlightened position set forth with
clarity and power by tb president

Philadelphia Inquirer: W hav not

deliberately and coolly. There Is not a
