Criticism waa made of the lack of
voting facilities provided at most of

were not regarded as sufficient when
It Is considered that many remain

this waa discovered by one of the elec

waa the statement that perhaps the elec

Won't Be Given Out Till.

WASHINGTON, April 1, Presi
dent Wilson will go before congress
tomorrow snd lay lh entire. Ger
man submarine issue before both
lio-iises. a break In diplomatic rela
tions Is said to be Imminent.
Secretary Tumulty went to the
capllol after today's cabinet meeting
and took up the question with Ma
jority Leader Kltchln of tha house,
Majority Leader Kern of the senate
and Senator Stone, chairman of the
foreign relations committee, They
Immediately went Into conferenea
with Speaker Clark of tho house.
l oin pi ile Mesaaue.
Thn president already hss com
pleted the communication he will de
liver to congress, I'p to the present
It had been thought he would send
this communication to Berlin, It
was decided, however, that the situa
tion li become go grave as to re
quire more serious drastic steps.
Arrangements were made at the
capltol for passing a resolution im
mediately providing for a Joint seg
elon of both houneg tomorrow to re
ceive the president's messsge. The
contents of the message will be kept
confidential and copies of It will not
bo given out until after its delivery
, I'eaa lleeolulloa.
Both houses passed promptly a resolu
tlon providing for a Joint seeglon in the
house elmmber tomorrow afternoon at 1
o'clock. Tbr wss no announcement. J
to the purpose of the president' coming.
No official of Ihe'admlnlalratlon could
say definitely what course had been de
cided upon, riome en time of communica
tion will gs forward to Berlin, probably
tomorrow, but apparently none hut the
prrtldent end the member of Id cabinet
know what it will bo.
Tt lid been atntrd and reiterated that
before taking any lep tending to lead
lo a rupture In diplomatic relation or
wr the president would lay Ihe situation
ltraallo Action Impends.
On thl section, when unofficial word
of tha nature of tha messaae to be de
livered tomorrow began to circulate, It
waa taken for granted on both lde of
the capltol that draotio action wa Im
pending. Tho president' decision wa reached
after long (onsldoratlnn of a maa of
evidence that Germany had been violat
ing solemn pledgee. regarding the con
duct of submarine warfare. A long tlt
of disaster to peaceful vessels), many of
them under neutral flags end many car
rying American rltlxena, wag gone ever
carefully by thn president and hi d
vlsera and wn understood to have been
Included lii tha communication drafted
