"Personally I would Itk to sea ths uas
of submarines abandoned entirely, Juat
as I would like to see aa abandonment
of the use of aeroplanes and Zeppelins
for the carrrlnr of explosives, but I ant
not aanfruina enourh to believe that any
affective Instrument of warfare will bs
abandoned as lone as war continues j
The very argument which the artvo- '
cates of peace aaraJnrA the submarine,
ths aeroplane and the Zeppelin are ad
vanced la favor of then by those who
conducts war. The more fatal a weapon
Is the more It Is In demand, and it is ,
not an unusual thine to aee a new In
strument of deatructlon denounced as In
humane by those whom It Is used, only
to be employed later by those who, only ;
a little while back, denounced It.
Hot Merely to OmMa-Aaaertoane.

-"As I am now speaking .to. German-Americans,
I am clad to repeat
in publlo what" I fcav often said In
private and would bare said in public
before but for the fact that it would
not bara been proper f f one, In tajr
official position to do so namely
tfcat In case of war between the
United State and Germany If so
Improbable a supposition can be eon
idered German-Americana would
le aa prompt to enlist and, aa faith
ful to the flss; as any other portion
of our people. What I hare aald In
regard to the Gtraan-Americana la
D aa introduction to an appeal which
I feel It my duty to make to til em.
' "First If any of them hare aver,
i.-i a moment of passion or excitement,
nuspected the president of lack of
neutrality or lack of friendship tow
erd ths German government and the
Herman people, let that thought ba
forgotten never again lo ba recalled,
i have since my resignation, repaired
numerous telegrams from German
Americana and German-American so
cieties commending my action; 1
think the senders of these telegrams
understood my position, but that no
one may mistake it let ma restate it
The president is not only desirous of
pace, but be hopes for it and ha has
kdopted the methods which he thinks
most likely to contribute toward
friendly" settlement, break off diplomatic
relations and thus- create a condition out
sf Which war might come without the In
tention of either country, I do not ask
yea .to minimise tho saroestaess of ths
president's statement; that would bs un
fair, both to hint and to Germany. The
sinking of tbs Lusitanta sannot bs de
fended apon tbs fact as ws understand
them. . The killing ef Innocent woman and
children csnnot bs Justified, whether tbs
killing la by drowning or starvation; no
nation can suooeesfully plaad tbs Inhu
manity ef 1U enemies as aa excuse for
Inhumanity oa Its own part. While It Is
true that cruelty Is apt to begat cruelty.
It osanot ba said that Xlke cures Uke.'
"Even la wsr ws ars aot absolved from
ebllsrationa to remedy events by ths in
fluence ef good example. Tt your lights
so sms.s Is a precept that knows no
times nor seasons as It knows neither
latitude nor longitude.
"Third: Do not attempt to connect
the negotiations which are going oa be
tween ths United States and Germany
with those between the United States
and Oreat Britain. The cases are dif
ferent, ' but even If thsy war the asms
It would be necessary to treat with eeoh
ration ' separately. My parsodal prfe-
eaoe has 'been to repeat our snslstene
that the" allies Shall not Interfere wua
ear commerce with neutral countries,
but tho difference oa this point was a
matter of judgment and not a matter
ef principle. In ths note to .Oraat Brit
ain dated March , this government said:
Relies Assaraasss. . .
la view of these assurances formally
given to this government It Is confidently
sxpeoted that ths extensive powers con
ferred by tho order la council on ins
executive effloara of the crown wtil be
restricted by 'orders Issued by the gov
ernment directing Uta exercise of their
discretionary powers la such a manner
as to modify in practloal application
those provisions of the .order la pouacll
which If strictly enforced would violate
neutral rights- and lnUrrupa legltlroat
trade. Relying oa tho faithful perform
ance of these voluntary assurances by his
majesty's government the United States
takes it for granted that ths approach
sf American merchantmen to neutral
ts situated upon ths long Una of
coast affected by ths order In oouncll
wtU act bs lnterfsrred with wbsa It Is
known that they do not carry goods
which are contraband of war or goods
destined to or proceeding1 from porta
within the betUgsrsnt territory affected.
, Will Insist FoattUa.
"There Is no doubt that our government
wilt Inafat npoa this position; that Is aa
Important thing, ths data of ths note Is
set material. My reason for deal ring to
have ths matter presented to Oreat Brit
ain at once was not that Oermany- had
any right to ask it but because 1 was
anxious to make It as easy as posslbls for
Oemiany to accept the demanda of the
United 8tatee and cease to employ sub
marines against mere bant men. There la
so reason why any German-Americana
should doubt the president's Intentions
In this matter. I am sure that every
one will on reflection recognise that our
duty to prevent loss of Ufa U moro ur
