Tha note expresses Germany's re

found to be In the wrong.
It defers a direct answer to the ques
tion raised by President Wilson pend

Lusitaula was a defenseless merchant
ahlp or was being used for ths trans
portation of war munitions and sol
diers, on which unsuspecting passen
gers wire permitted to take passage
to safeguard the war materials.
The American representations re
garding the torpedoing of the British
steumer Falaba, la which an Ameri
can citizen lost his life, are answered
with the statement that It waa intend
ed to offer ample time for the passen
gers and crew to leave the ship, but
