Repeated Threats Lead to Be

Long in Advance.
Gorman rIpIoinats Say That Because

Ammunition They Kxpccted
She Would Be Victim.
(Continued From First Pan?.)
terror It might spread among ocean
travelers generally.
Information gathered among officials
of the Government and in diplomatic
quarters confirms the belief that plana
for the destruction of the Lusitania
were made several weeks ago. First,
the German embassy was instructed to
advertise in the leading newspapers ol
the United States, warning passengers
against traveling on belligerent ships.
Anonymous warnings then were sent
to individuals who proposed sailing on
the Lusitania.
Day Chosen in Advance.
Most significant or all were letters
received here from officials in Germany
by private persons saying that the
Lusitania surely would be destroyed.
Frcm the day the ship sailed from
New. York, officials here have received
inquiries from many sources almost
daily as to the safety of. the vessel.
One official was told with much posi
tiveness early today that this was the
day selected for the destruction of the
The Navy radio station at Arlington
has been on the alert for news and
from time to time has been reported as
having picked up messages saying the
vessel was sunk.' Inquiry at the Navy
Department each time failed to confirm
the reports and they were not circu
lated because it was feared they would
spread unnecessary alarm.
At the German Kmbassy here, while
no comment was made as to whether it
was known there that rtie vessel was
to be destroyed, it was said the Km
bassy knew the Lusitania carried arms
and ammunition and, being advised of
the resolution of the German Admiralty
to attack ships that carried such con
traband, officials had believed she
would be attacked.
Question of Armament Raised,
There was a disposition on the part
of the Germans to inquire also whether
the Lusitania carried any guns on
decks, which might place her in the
class of a warship and make unnec
essary, according to the laws of inter
national warfare, the giving of a
The officials at the State Department
said they had not heard that the Lusi
tania carried any guns. At the British
Kmbassy it was revealed that early
in the war, after the United States
Government had been consulted on the
question of small guns for the big
liners, the advice was given by the
State Department and heeded that no
guns be carried on the decks.
The British Kmbassy heard of the
disaster through news dispatches and
. offered no formal comment, though
officials said the attack was abso
lutely inexcusable and constituted a
most flagrant violation of all the rules
of international law.
Officials of the United States Gov
ernment were slow to express any
opinion on the diplomatic phase of the
disaster. Secretary Bryan declined to
comment on the course of this Gov
ernment. There remains little doubt,
however, tonight in weil-inf ormed
quarters here that the incident will
become a matter of diplomatic corre
spondence between the United States
and Germany when complete informa
tion Is received.
Ambassador 1'age reported briefly on
the sinking of the vessel, but official
information as to whether the ship re
ceived warning, whether she was con
voyed by British warships and con
cerning the extent to which lives of
Americans were placed in Jeopardy by
the attack or subjected to dangers on
the high seas will be sought through
the American Embassy in London and
the Consulates in Ireland before a de
cision is reached on the course to be
pursued by the United States.
When the German Admiralty pro
claimed the waters around Great Brit
ain and Ireland a "war zone" and
warned neutral vessels against the dan
gers that lay therein the United States
did not admit Germany's right to place
hazards ill the way of American ves
sels or lives. There was no distinc
tion drawn then as to whether t,he rep
resentations of the United States cov
ered Americans traveling on belliger
ent or neutral craft, but officials in
formally disclosed later that the note
had been purposely phrased so as to
cover both contingencies.
.Iciprlrfin A'otc Possible Index.
The language of the American note
was everywhere recalled tonight as a
possible Index to the policy to be pur
vued. The discussion at the time arose
particularly over the misuse oT flags
by belligerent vessels, the Lusitania
lt.-elf having flown an American flag
to escape attack from German subma
rines. The United States remonstrated with
Great Britain over such use of the
American flag and said at the same
time in a nofe- to Germany:
"If the commanders of German ves
sels of war should act upon the
presumption that the flag of the
United States was not being used in
good faith and should destroy on the
high seas an American vessel or the
lives ' of American citizena it would
be difficult to view the act in any
ther light than as an indefensible
violation of neutral vghts which it
would be very hard Indeed to reconcile
with the friendly relations now happily
existing between the two governments.
"If such a deplorable situation should
arl3c. the imperial German government
can readily appreciate that the Govern,
inent of the United States would be con
strained to hold the German govern
ment to a strict accountability for
such acts of their naval authorities
and to take any steps that might be
necessary to take to safeguard Ameri
can lives and property and to secure
to American citizens these full enjoy
ments of their acknowledged rights
on the high seas."
officials, however, were careful to
point cut tonight that' if no American
lives were iost there might be many
qualifying circumstances which would
remove from the present Incident the
vital interest that the United States
otherwise might have In It.
It was Indicated, for-example, that a
marked division of opinion had existed
among legal authorities as to whether
a hostile vessel need give any warning
to a merchantman traveling under con
voy, for the exercise of right of visit
and search to determine the presence
of contraband under such conditions
obviously would imperil the safety of
the attacking vessel itself. On the
other hand, it had been urged that
under no circumstances can an unarmed
merchantman be attacked unless resist-

on the starboard side, one forward

Old Head Is Noted Landmark.
Where Great Britain's fastest mer

Kinsale Is a landmark that has
brought joy to many travelers, as it
always stood as the sign from shore
that the perils of the voyage across
the Atlantic were at an end. The
line, whose boast has been that it has
never lost a passenger in the Atlantic
service, has now lost the ship that
dodged the lurking enemy off Nan

declared and later startled the world
by flying the Stars and Stripes.
The British Admiralty is discourag

guesses regarding the dead and in

are known the British press is asking

Japanese Ultimatum Omits In
sistence on Supervision
of Internal Affairs.
Pekin Government Confident That
Xo Outbreak Will Follow Peo
ple or Capital Still Un
aware of Situation.
PEKIN, May &. Japan's ultimatum
was presented to China yesterday, but
in a modified form, which the Chinese
government is prepared to accept.
Japan omits all items In group V of
the amended list of demands. Group
V Includes the stipulations against
which China raised the most vigorous
objections. The decision of Japan to
defer these matters 1s made known in
an official communication of 3500
words, which was issued here today in
regard to the Japanese ultimatum.
The principal provisions of group V
have to do with the appointment of
Japanese military and political advis
ers for China and for Japanese super
vision over the manufacture or pur
chase by China of munitions of war.
The Japanese government instructed
Eki Hioki. Japanese Minister at Pekin,
to advise China to give due regard to
Japan's wishes and to the conciliatory
spirit of the Tokio government, in view
of which Japan believes China had
given a satisfactory response.
Compliance Being Drafted.
The attaches of the Foreign Office
were at work all night translating
Japan's ultimatum and drafting the
terms of, China's compliance with the
demands,' which will be submitted to
Yuan Shi Kai and the state council
this morning at 10 o'clock.
The reply will be delivered to M.
Hioki, the Japanese Minister, tonight
or Sunday morning. The Chinese note
will review China's case, answer the
charges contained in the ultimatum and
accept the demands without' qualifi
cation. The government expects no serious
revolutionary outbreak from the peo
ple. The military leaders have assured
Yuan Shi Kai that their support would
It was learned today that in -the
course of Vlce-Mlnlster Tsao Yulin's
visit to the Japanese Legation, he pro
posed verbally to meet the Japanese
railroad demand, to grant school and
hospital privileges, offered to bestow
land without compensation on Japanese
and proposed to withdraw China's three
requirements regarding Shan - Tung
province, namely, the return to the
status quo before the war, China's par
ticipation in the peace conference and
compensation for damages in the Kiau
Chau campaign.
The final Chinese proposals, there
fore, refused only to authorize Japan
to supply half these arms used by
China; to participate in the conduct of
Chinese arsenals; to appoint Japanese
advisers to China and to preach Bud
dahism in tiic republic.
Future Requirements Not I. Iked.
The Chinese dislike the requirements
insisted upon by Japan that China rec
ognize Tokio's right to reopen these
questions at a future date, but they
will accept these features unless the
fed irreconcilables in the councils of
President Yuan Shi Kai succeed before
next Monday in altering the President's
The ultimatum complains of the
Chinese attitude in advancing the ar
gument that the Japanese position was
designed in part for presentation to
foreign countries. It is considered curi

in Japanese, while all formal documents
have been written both in Japanese and

Of the construction of the Iost ship.
Many thousands of women, are now-a-days
paying attention to physical
culture and the proper exercise of their
body muscles, where, 30 vyears ago or
50 years ago there was no thought ex
pended on this science, which is quite
ncessary to physical beauty. The rea
son the Greeks, both men and women,
excelled in beautiful and symmetrical
forms was because of the attention
they paid to the proper exercise. Then,
too, they were untrammeled by corsets,
shoes and the inconveniences of cloth

Idea of physical exercise conveys only
the idea of hard fatiguing work. Mild
exercise continued day after day is
best for the body and spirits and
health. Without proper exercise there
can be no health, and without health
there can be no real beauty.

similar accident to the Lusitania would
have left the ship afloat and able to
proceed under her own steam. She
was a double-skinned vessel with many
watertight subdivisions of her hold
and the wing-bulkhead installations
that gave her added protection. The
vessel's coal bunkers lay outside these
bulkheads and it was pointed out that

could not tear open enough compart
ments to send the ship to the bottom
Navy officers predicted that an ef
fect of the loss of the Lusitania would
be a popular demand In England for
energetic action by the fleet.
Base In Ireland Reported.
Some officials of the State Depart
ment were inclined to credit reports
that a German base for submarine
raids had been established in some
hidden cove, known only to the native
smugglers on the Irish coast.
The torpedoing of the British super
dreadnought Audacious off the Irish
coast, generally supposed to- have been
the work of a German submarine, nu
merous raids on smaller craft in the
same region, and now the sinking of
the huge Lusitania, in the opinion of i
these officials, indicated clearly that
the German underwater craft were
working from some nearby point.
Navy officials, however, did not share
this view. They pointed out that the
Lusitania was struck at a distance, ap
proximately of less than 1500 miles
from the German coast. This would be
easy cruising distance, it was said, for
the newest American submarines.
Lone lademea Trips Reported.
Information has reached the Navy
Department to the effect that German
submarines have completely circum
navigated the British Isles, making
voyages of 5000 or 6000 miles. If this
is true (and the report apparently was
accepted at face value) the underwater
ambuscade to which the Lusitania fell
victim was comparatively a simple
Germany is known to have put in
commission several new submarine
craft recently, and it was thought by
Navy officials that when the plan to
sink the Lusitania was drawn up, it
was decided to send a dozen or more
of these boats into the track which
the liner probably would follow to lie
in wait for her. Judging by reports
of her position at the time of the at-
tack. It was said, the Lusitania fol
lowed her regular course on her last
Some Navy officers thought they saw
in the warnings published in this coun
try before the departure of the steamer
that she would be attacked, an intima
tion that the ship would he blown up
from inside during her voyage. Noth
ing in dispatches receiyed today tended
to confirm this view of the incident.
