fact, And congress would have ab
dicated and surrender in advance all
claim to pass upon the question.
"The question here presented, he
said, "rises above any manor any
president it is fundamental.
Senator Hardwick, democrat, asked
Senator Stone ii the president , did not
have authority to defend or protect
American citiccns without authority
''Yes," said Senator Stone, "if a war
vessel of the United States should tee
a merchant ship of this country as
saulted on the high seas and an effort
be made to destroy it, even though
that war vessel were not acting as a
convay, such warship would not
only have the right, but it would be
its duty to protect that ship. But it t
foreign power assaults merchant ves
sels of the United States when our
war vessels are not present and we
hear of it as we are hearing of these
things now, I do not think the presi
dent could direct the navy of the
United States to begin war on that
foreign power. For that he would
have to come to congress.
Congress Only Power.
"If we want to enter into the war
if the occasion is as grave as some of
the senators say, let us say to. We
have the right, the power to say so.
Congress is the only power in this
great government that has the right

' Interest In Zinvnermann Interview.
Senator Sherman presented today's
news dispatches frorj. Berlin bringing
Vnrriim Minister Zimmermann't id-
mission of the attempted intrigue
with Japan and Mexico.
1 Senators minifested such keen in-
terest in the dispatches that they
were read twice.- Senators who had
been inclined to denounce the cele
' brated Zimmermann instructions as
a forgery or a British plot showed
nartieular interest . -
"japan has denied receipt of over
tures," Senator Sutherland of Utah
interjected. "I sk if there is any
significance to tne tact tni our great
- and gooa mena, uenerai i,arranza, in
nnr ni-iirhhnrlna ,. friendly republic,
has not made any denial.'.
' BUI-Meant War.
"Are we going to lie down on bur
backs and let this monstrous rrtn
enstein trample over us ruthlessly?
resumed Senator Brandgee. "i am
' not deceived by the effect of this bill. !
' The effect will be that the next pas
senger or freight thip with American
gunners aboard which attempts to
enter a British or neutral port in the
war xone wilt be attacked by a Ger
man submarine. That meant thtt
there will be war if thit country it fit
' to live. If perchance our defensive
gunners should sink a submarine,
that would mean war."
That he and tome other( foreign
relations committee mem', .rs wanted
to amend the bill to "direct" and not
merely "authorize" the president to
arm American merchantmen! was
stated by the Connecticut senator.
Mr. Brandgee urged the passage
of the sending: measure and not the
, . house bill, because by its terms the
ttatut of othcers or men on e mer
chant thin resisting attack from t
- war vessel would be dearly estab
lished under American law, and t cy
could not be treated at pirates, as
they might be treated without tuch a
"I want tuch men," he said, "to be
treated at pnionefs of war, acting

yard-arm at pirates.'

ports about instructions from the
ministry of foreign affairs to the Ger
man minister in Mexico City, in the
event that Germany, after the
proclamation of unrestricted submar
ine warfare, failed to keep the United
States neutral. These reports are
based on the following facts:
"After the decision had been taken
to begin unrestricted submarine war
fare on February 1, we had to reckon,
in view of the previous attitude of
the American government, with the
possibility of conflict with the United
States. That this calculation was
right was proved by the fact that the
American government severed diplo
matic relations with Germany soon
after the proclamation of a 'barred
zone and asked other neutrals to fol
low in example.
.Move Only Precautionary.
Anticipating these possibilities, it
was not only the right, but also the
duty, of our government to take pre
cautions in time in the event of a
military conflict .with the United
States in order to balance, if possi
ble, the adhesion to our foes of a
new enemy. The German minister at
Mexico, therefore, was instructed in
the middle of lanuarv that in the
event of the United States declaring
war he should otter to the Mexican
f overnment an alliance and arrange
urther details. These instructions,
by -the way, expressly directed the
ministers to make no advances to the
Mexican government unless he knew
for a certainty that America was go
ing to declare war.
How the American government re
ceived information of the instructions
sent by a secret way to Mexico is not
known. It appears, nowever, mac tne
treachery, and it appears there must
have been treachery, was committed
on American territory."

terdam sayt the Berlin telegram in
regard to Secretary Zimmerman'a in'
structiont to the German minister in
Mexico is semi-omcial.
