TO WILSON NOTE
(Continued from Fare One.)
German submarines have overshadowed
the Lusltanla raae Itself, but there were
Indications today that the new German
note would cause a' return to the lusl
tanla rase as a foremost Issue.
The outline of the German note as ca
bled by Mr. Gerard Is known to be far
from satisfactory to officials. With re
spect to the sinking of the Lusltanla, on
which more than 100 Americans perished,
no admission of liability Is made.
Whether In extenuation or not the view
Is expressed In the draft that when tor
rodoed It was not believed the Liusltanta
would sink 'as rapidly as It dldr
W hen They Wowle Be Bale.
As for the future, cltlsens of the United
fitatee would be permitted to travel with
aafety on the high eras If passengers on
American ships or on belligerent ships
not carrying munitions of war.
The Vnlted States would be required to
inform the German government of the
date of the departure and character of
the veaael's Cargo carrying Americana and
guarantee that such ships hsd no muni
tions of war aboard.
' In this connection high officials here
stated yesterday that it would be an un
neutral act for the United States to notify
any Jwlllgerent government of the date
of departure from an American port or
the character ef the cargo of a merchant
man of another belligerent.
Count von Bematorff, the German am
bassador, was In communication by wire
less with hla government during the day
and la underatood to have advlaed the
Berlin foreign office that the form In
which the proposals had been made did
not appear to be acceptable te the Vnlted
