Instead of Discussing Incidents

THINKS U. S. BELLIGEBENT
; Wajhington, March 30. While it it
assumed from the defensive measures
already taken by the military arm of
the government President Wilson, in
: addressing congress next week, will
ask for war against Germany or a
declaration that a state ot war exists
it is known he will speak along broad
lines, dealing lightly with incidents
leading up to the present crisis.
Officials feel now that the time It
past when incidentals should be dis
cussed and, henceforth, that only
fundamental questions of both pres
ent and future American ; aaterv
ahould be considered. At a result
the president it gathering opinions
and suggestions from all sides at to
the sort of an address to make in tne
coming crucial period.

Germanv. it was taid. hat consist
ently attempted to lay the blame for
us acts on oincr nations. . yn previ
ous occasions President Wilson hat
taken the position that Germany is
in no way justified in carrying on
submarine nithlessnett ' because of
the British blockade. '
Only complete abndonment of un
restricted submarine wariare coma

States, it hat been said temi-officislly
recently, ana press reports inaicaie
that the German chancellor did not
even discust that possibility. I
View of Public Opinion.
JfuDlic opinion, was taia nere, as
indicated by clippings from newspap
er in all parts of the country, un
mistakably favors decisive action.
Belligerency is not confined to the
Atlantic and Pacific sections if opin
ions gathered by the administration
are a true index. Demand for action
on the part of congress and the presi
dent comes also from the interior
section between the Allegbanies and
the Sierras. The views reported by
some mid-western congressmen at to
the apathy of their constituencies it
considered more local than general,
The greatest point under considera
tion by the administration It whether
Germany has not unmistakably thown
through a long succession of viola
tions of international law, that the
United States mutt definitely unite
with the liberal democracies of the
world against the four most complete
autocracies, both for its' prstent and
itt future safety. ;
Danger to World's Pasco.
All hope has been lost, at shown
in the note to Germany aa to the
treaty of 1828, in the good faith of
the present German rulers. The Bel
gian invasion and deportations, the
ruthless submarine . warfare, the at
tempts to embroil neutral countries in
plots, and the general conduct of the
war, have convinced many officials,
tfut the German military system at at
present directed it s permanent dan
ger to the world't peace.
German plott in this country, run
ning back almost to the beginning of
the war and finally culminating in the
Zimmermann note to ally Japan and
Mexico in war against this country,
are regarded at evidence of the evil
of the general system. The adminis
tration has much material not yet
made public and it it understood,
moreover, that tht complete text of
the Zimmerman note hat not been
published. Further disclosure! of in
trigues may be expected st any time.
Germany, through the coolnest with
which she treated the president's pro
posal to name peace terms, is felt to
be the greatest source of danger to
world peace. Some officials here who
felt its original offer was insincere
and merely a play for domestic eon
sumption, believe its refusal to ttate
terms is proof of that contention.
' Full co-operation with the allies,
therefore, it generally favored at s
necetsity to America i future tafety.
German victory now it it taid might
lead to a direct attack on thit coun
try later and would at least necessi
tate extensive armament. A deadlock
would be tantamount to a German
victory on the basis that while, after
peace the German union would be
come stronger, the entente might
easily fall apart and Germany would
be left relatively world supreme.
Host Expected Is Draw.
Military authorities here ' believe
that the mTjst Germany expects now
is a draw. What seems indifference
In 'this Ailn.rv. an,..,,.. Ih.m .U
war causes much interest. Some offi
cials have predicted for more than a
year that Germany would attempt to
force this nation into the conflict at

the last moment, in order that its
autocracy might save itt face before
the peoDle by surrendering to the
whole world, and, secondly, because
this country would probably be a
generoua enemy. ,
The last objection to America's
participation was removed with the
severance of relations when it ceased
to be possible for America to get
funds to Germany and thus sustain
the price of the mark. Before that

Manner of Participation.
With the United States drawn into
the war through no desire of its own
and convinced that the war it a war
of self-protection and self-preservation,
the exact manner of American
participation is undecided. The send
ing of an army to Europe or the pro
vision of a huge credit of from one
billion to Ave billion dollars are both
being discussed. At for military par
ticipation nothing probable it de
termined, and decisions must await
actual entrance into the war. Some
feel that a large army, owing to need
of equipment and. diversion of ship
ping would be more of a hinderance
than a help. Munitions manufacture,
where the United States could be of
most value, would "be expedited by
the' greatest possible degree. At the
same time alliances with the entente
nationt are not contemplated. The
United States plant to maintain its
freedom of action just as far at pos
sible, in a naval and military aense,
there will, of course, be full co-operation,
but beyond that the country will
not assume unlimited liability for the
allies' aimt. The United Statea will
seek as far as possible to ameliorate
the bitterness of the present war and
prevent its ending from generating
future wart. .
