Critical Turn Given Contro
versy by Treatment of
. Lusitania Affair.
WASHINGTON, July 8. The United
States Government will not engage in
formally in a discussion or negotiation
with Germany regarding the charac
ter of the forthcoming reply to the
last American note on submarine war
fare. Ambassador Gerard, at Berlin, has
been informed that such is the Presi
dent's decision and that the Ambas
sador is to make no comment on the
tentative draft given him by the Ger
man Foreign Office. If asked for an
expression, he is to say that the
United States will await a formal re
ply before discussing the question
Ambassador Advises Statement.
The German Ambassador, it is be
lieved, is urging his Government to
make a broad statement on the prin
ciples involved and reserve for later
discussion arrangements concerning
the separation of passenger and con
For the United States, of its own
- initiative, to make concessions, it is
held, would imperil the entire fabric
of American rights with other bel
There were many evidences in of
ficial circles today that the German
controversy was again regarded as
critical and that the reply as outlined
was exceedingly disappointing. The
concessions alleged to have been made
were referred to as a slight departure
from the illegal position held by Ger
many and it was pointed out that the
United States, holding a strictly legal
position, was unable to make any
changes or surrender any point.
Contention Arouses Pessimist m.
Irrespective, however, of the sug
gestions made as to the future con
duct of German submarines as sug
gested in the preliminary draft of the
German reply, one of the chief causes
of the pessimism is the treatment to
be accorded the Lusitania tragedy.
Originally the United States pointed
out that the German submarine com
manders must have misapprehended
. their instructions and could not have
intended to, sink the vessel without
warning. The last German note in
reply contended that the vessel was
armed, was an auxiliary cruiser and
therefore could not be treated as a
After the United States submitted
official information that the Lusi
tania not only was unarmed, but did
not attempt to resist visit and search,
the German government, it is now
understood, has taken the position
there was no intentfon to sacrifice
non-combatants, the view of the Ger
man commander being that the ves
sel would be difficult and slow to
sink and that there would be ample
opportunity to remove passengers to
a place of safety.
Informal Conference Mentioned.
The United States said in its first
note that reparation would be sought
for the sacrifice of Americans on the
Lusitania, but Germany has denied
liability for the occurrence.
Officials here declined to explain
the mystery of the informal conference
between Ambassador Gerard and of
ficials of the German Foreign Office.
They indicated that the message from
the Ambassador, transmitting an out
line of the German note, did not say
specifically that he had been asked to
obtain the views of the American
Government. It appeared that he asked
if there were any instructions and did
so because the draft was placed in hia
hands in advance of its' completion.
' According to officials familiar with
diplomatic precedent, this was not un-
