TO SAVETHEIR BILL Appeal to Republicans to Keep Armed Neutrality from Defeat. i " NOEEIS LEADS IN FIGHT (Ceatlaaad Pn Om.) 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 of congress. ''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 and I m unwilling to establish the precedent of shifting the war respon sibility to the president of the United S,"Aniericans have been selling quan tities of munitions to the entente and American ships have been conveying ,niniicil Senator Stone. I his is not unlawful. It is permissible. 1 i a. l-.fi via res anlil. tions. I would not deny our people .t,. riiht to tell to on- being- " erent just because the other cannot reach our market But if thit gov. ernment thould arm merchant ships, ' put gunners aboard and send the ships loaded with munition! to a belligerent ' we would tecome by that very, act the f ti Mw,rnmnil benefited. .We t any w a"- ' .,.,. M h In the war. When debate wat resumed today Senator Hitchcock, to perfect the kilt's narliamentary status, had the ' unite draft, with two slight amend ments, substituted' after the enacting clause for the house text. One amend- ment eliminatet the provision for arming merchantmen "for and tft, thus removing specific direction at to armament The other prevents United States' protection of foreign t snips. Hot Speech by Brandegee. Brandes-ee. renublican. of rnnn.Mu-nt. called the German pro- hibited tone, "an ambush where Ger many laid in wan to oeai aeain re any one who entered (gainst its edict ; ""Shall we tit supinely and allow the ukase of i foreign potentate now to clear the ocean of American shipping ." and blockade our ports?'! he asked. - "I,. r abllsed to wait for the slaughter to be accomplished before we defend ourselves? I trust that , pihrr consresi nor the ('American - people have fallen to such depths of v degradation that they art wining to furl the American flag and withdraw from the high tcut at the misguided band of pacifists seem to wish, "There it no use to issue moral homily or a Salvation Army tract or ' r.nf.t the Sermon on the Mount to a nation that hat gone mad' and hat begun through its military au- mrnrv to act like a homicidal ma niac. Must wc get off the face of the earth lie. down and curl up? I'm for peace, but , I am going to preserve the liberties of my country.

The neaee nrooannda. in tome aspect!, closely approaches treason." . - .,. , ' 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 law. "I want tuch men," he said, "to be treated at pnionefs of war, acting iiider authority u j-rest and not to be hanged at the yard-arm at pirates.' : J Aittn Wlaa Atsla. Atl.tl, Neb.; March 1 8p.elal.

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." A Central news dispatch front Ams terdam sayt the Berlin telegram in regard to Secretary Zimmerman'a in' structiont to the German minister in Mexico is semi-omcial.
