Views will be urged on the president be

While they agree that Germany's reply
is dlaaf pointing and unsatisfactory, they
urge that the Arabia case has come
down to questions of Indemnity and of
fact. The explanations offered by Ger
many for the sinking of the White Star
liner differ materially from the atate
men's In the hands of President Wilson
and Secretary Inilng. Those officials
who favor further negotiation contend
that a proper war to determine which

go to The IIagiM, where the question of
Indemnity oould be arbitrated without
endangering the principles for which the
United Htatea has contended as govern
