Amsterdam Dispatch Says America
Now Has the Opportunity to
SIMILAR TALK IN GERMANY
LONDON, May The Dally

day's Itsuo to a long dispatch from
Rotterdam assorting that there Is a
strong belief In Holland that the
Herman note to the Ur.lted Btates
was carefully prepared In the hope
(hat It may lead eventually to peace
negotiations. The dispatch says:
"There Is a belief hen that bahlnd the
whole cloud of vague and conditional
promises lies the hope that negotiations
for peace will be opened with England
through the mediation of the United
States. According to this view, Germany
hopes that Washington will opn a dis
cussion first on th question of contra
band and the oavai blocked, which will
widen by easy stages to eventual discus
sion of possible peace conditions.
Opportunity fur America.
"In Auierlcan circles In Berlin It is be
lieved that Ambassador Gerard, during
bis recent visit to the Kaiser's headnuar
ters at the front, discussed matters far
hler in rang than merely the ques

Secretary Lansing already hss
studied the note once and was going
over It very carefully again today.
There) were indications that further
consideration by the cabinet would
not be necessary.
Overnight study of the note by cabinet
members and officials did not change
their view that probably there would be
no break In diplomatic relations, unless
there were further attacks In violation of
Mar )lsk Brief Reply.
There is a possibility t,at the t'niiod
mates may make a brief reply notifying
the lierlln g oviifnment that as long as the
new order to submarine commanders ar
fully observed, diplomatic relations will
not b dlr soiitlnued on that score.
Count von IHrnatorff, the German am
bassador, returned to the emheaey today
from New York. He said he had no com
munication from his governm' t and had
no reason to visit th Htate department.
The embassy view that the note was all
the United Htates asked remained un
changed. Several members of th eabinet kave
left Washington snd ar not pried
