have decided to make suit
able representations to Germany on
tha sinking. May 7," of ths'Cunard
line steamer Lusltanla by a Germaa
submarine, as eoBuU of which three
8wlss citizens lost their Uvea,
The . government IS awaiting
knowledge of the German reply -to
the .Washington note on this. subject
so as better to be able to choose, a
wise course of proceedure. .
Think Well f Wilson Kot.
Tho Swiss think weii of President Wil
son's note, but to most newspaprs It ap
pears to be hardly strong enough.
The argument Is being made by Swiss
observers that the 8wlss representations
will have great weight because behind
thtm there will be the Swiss army, 6(0,000
Kccords made public shortly after the
loss of the Lusltanla showed that John
Fen wick, a Swiss cltlsen, was among
those who lost their Uvea. Tba list Of
