Ing of the White Star liner Arabio
I was an act deliberately unfriendly to
the United States, were still lacking
today, and meanwhile the president
and all other administration officials,
while realising fully the gravity of
the new situation between the United
States and Germany, were keeping
their minds open.
President Wilson left ths White House
early to motor to Philadelphia to visit
his oculist, and motor back to the capital
this evening. When he has a deep prob
lem, It Is the president's habit to seek
seclusion, riding through the country side.
Only two official dispatches had been
received, and they gave the fruits of no
Independent Investigation, merely trans
mitting the reports of ths While Star
line. The United States will decide Its
course upon the reports of Its own of
ficials. Ambassador Page forwarded a White
Star report that the ship was torpedoed
without warning, and Vlee-Consul Thomp
son at Queenstown, made a similar re
port. Neither accounted for Mrs. Joseph.

New Points Are Raised.
WASHINGTON. Aug. . While of
f trials are keeping their minds open dur
ing the hours which will be required foi
assembling the official evidence, tbey are
thinking about these points:
Whether any Americans have been lost
snd whether ths Arabia actually was tor
pedoed without warning. Whether the
Arabic, having bean convoyed on the
beginning of its voysgs had, under In
ternational law, partaken of the character
of its convoy and waived Its right ss a
non-combatant. Whether by proceeding
to the vicinity of the steamer Dunsley,
which had Just been torpedoed, the
Arabic's commander Introduced any
qualifying circumstances by violating the
rule of the British admiralty which for
bids a ship to risk Itself by sttemptlng
to assist another, which has been tor
pedoed. Attempt at Rearae Jastlfled.
A view prevailed that an attempt by
the Arabio to succor those on another
torpedoed ship wss Justified and was
not affected by the British admiralty rule
which was made as a matter of policy
for warships and waa not a matter of
International right. Whether the Ara
bic's . movement toward .the Dunsley
might bs Interpreted as an attempt to
ram the submarine Is snother point to
Secretary Lsnslng refused to discuss
these or any other features of ths case.
There la no attempt In official quarters
to minimise the situation confronting ths
president if investigations develop a vio
lation of American rights in defiance of
the last note to Oermany, which give
notice In final terms that another sink
ing like that of the Lusttanla would be
considered an "act deliberately up.
The prospect of severance of diplomatic
delations with Germany again cams for
ward, but It was understood that If such
oouree should be decided upon it would
not Immediately be announced.
