WANTS EARLY RESPONSE
Memorandum Handed Page by
foreign Office Taking Up
Certain Complaints. .
TO ALLAY IMPATIENCE
Washington, July 21. Acting Secre
tary Folk announced today that he
had made formal Inquiry of France
and Great Britain as to why no reply
had been received as to the last
American note regarding interference
with neutral mails and had asked for
a ' response at the earliest possible
moment. : ' ,
At th& time Mr. Polk had not heard
that Ambassador Page had been
handed a memorandum by the Brit
ish foreign office answering specific
complaints made in the American
note. This memorandum will serve
to allay the impatience of the state
department only partially, however,
as officials are most anxious to have
a definite reply to the general pro
test against the treatment accoraea
mails between the United States and
neutral countries of Europe.
The understanding here is that the
French foreign office has sent to
London a draft of a note and that
dispatch of the joint reply is being
delayed there. .

21.) A ministerial decree was issued
today placing the persons and prop

of those of Austrians and Hungarians.
The decree does not directly mention
Germans,' but ' states that allies 1 of
Austria are to be .treated as enemies

Prior to the war German property
and, interests in Italy were estimated
to be worth $250,000,000. Their value
now is placed at about $150,000,000.
There are only a few German sub
jects in Italy now, and these will be
either placed in concentration camps,
or sent across the Swiss border. ;
There has been a strong sa-itation
in Italy for some time for the break
ing off of all relations with Germany.
The curious situation caused by
Italy being at war with Austria, while
nominally at peace with Germany was
emphasized by an agreement between
Kl:ne and Berlin, wherein all rights
of the citizens of one country domi
ciled in the other were to be respected.
an J my o this agreement was de
nounced on the ground that it was
not being observed by Germany.

powers, held in Paris last February,

Pressed for an explanation as to why
taly had not declared war on Ger
many. On February 29, Italy re
quisitioned thirty-four German ships
which were interned in Italian ports.
As a similar action by Portugal had
promptly called forth an ultimatum
from Berlin which was followed by a
declaration of war, it was confidently
expected that the same sequel would
follow in regard to Italy. As far as
is known, however, Wilhelmstrasse
did not even make a protest- If war
is now declared Italian troops may be
sent to the western-front, according
to the expectations expressed in Lon

German Subsea Mine Layer Is
On Exhibition at London Dock
London, July 21. The German sub
marine mine layer which is one of
the U-35. class, one of the latest
prizes vt the British navy, was visited
by an Associated Press representative
today prior "to its being placed on
public exhibition in the Thames.
The prize, flying the German naval
ensign, surmounted by. the British
ensign, lay in a naval dock yard on
the east coast. The vessel is designed
purely for mine laying. The entire
forward part is composed of wells,
six in number, each containing two
powerful mines, which can be re
leased by levers. The ship has no
torpedo tubes or other armament ex
cept small arms for the crew and is
only 100 feet long.
Thirteen bluejackets and .five of
ficers comprise the crew of the sub
marine. According to one of the sea
men - it made prior to its capture
nineteen trips from its base in Ger
many to the British coast and laid
over 200 mines on routes frequented
by merchant vessels. It "was on its
twentieth trip when it was captured
by the British patrol boat. The sail
ors said that when the submarine was
sighted and chased by a patrol boat
the crew tried to get rid of its re
maining mines, but had not sufficient
time. Seeing that capture was inevi
table, the officers ordered the aban
donment of the ship, destroyed the
log and other records and virtually
demolished the six-cylinder Diesel en
gine of approximately 250-horse
power. All of the crew and officers
were taken prisoner. - ' ,
The hull of the submarine is in
good condition, but showed s num
ber of dents where it struck obstacles
in its underwater voyages. The craft
shows signs of rapidity of construc
tion, but appears well fitted for short
trips across the North Sea. British
naval officers pointed out that the
mines carried no apparatus for ren
dering them harmless if they broke
loose from their moorings, as re
quired by The Hague convention.
