AT CRITICAL POINT
Washington to Reject
CRISIS NOT TO BE FORGED
Discussion May Continue
Absence of Overt Acts.
OFFICIAL TEXT RECEIVED
Secretary Lansing to Go to Cornish
to Confer With President.
. Von Bernstorff Plans to
Make Informal Call.
WASHINGTON. July 11. Study of
the official text of Germany's reply to
the American note on submarine war
fare as It affects neutral rights
strengthens the conviction of hi eh of
ficials that a critical point In the
relations between the two countries
has been reached.
Not only do they feel that the
United States must refuse to accept the
German proposals for the future con
duct of American citizens on the high
teas, but the failure of Germany to
disavow the sinking of the Lusltania,
with the loss of more than 100 Ameri
cans. In their view has brought on a
crisis the outcome of which It is dif
ficult at present to foresee, clearly.
Action Delayed Several Days.
That there will be no action by the
United States for at least another week
was Indicated today. Several days will
be required to measure fully the con
sequences and responsibilities which
will be incurred by the American Gov
ernment In framing a policy to meet
the situation firmly.
Secretary Lansing will go to Cor
nish, N. M.. within a day or two to
confer with President Wilson. He said
tonight he would study the note care
fully and then communicate with, the
Count von Bernstorff, the German
ambassador, intends to call on Secre
tary Lansing In the course of the week
to learn informally whether he can oe
of any service In the situation. No
engagements have been made for a
conference, but It probably will take
place on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Official Tt Arrive.
The official text of the German re
ply arrived today and was made pub
lic It differed in only a few unim
portant words from the Associated
Press copy which came from Berlin
Friday night. The official version was
delayed In transmission because of cod
ing. Comparison of the two texts re
vealed that they were cabled from the
same translation and that the As
sociated Press ropy In transmission
had omitted a few scattering words
which did not alter the sense of mean
ing. In all quarters here the reply was
the single topic of concern.
It was authoritatively indicated that
obviously there will be no surrender
of rights and no acceptance of German
proposal to guarantee immunity to
American ships under arrangements to
be agreed on by the naval authorities
of the two countries concerning the
marking of neutral ships.
Responsibility Placed on Germany.
There is no . intention, from indica
tions in official quarters, to force a
crisis, but in whatever policy is fol
lowed the American endeavor will be
to place full responsibility on Germany
for any subsequent rupture in friendly
Since the Lusltania was sunk on May
7 there has been no violation of the
principles for which the United States
has contended, unless the mishap to
the Nebraskan can be Included, and
In that case the Washington Govern
ment has not finally reached a conclu
sion as to whether a mine or torpedo
caused the explosion.
In the view of many officials, should
German submarine commanders, Ahere
fore, continue In practice to respect
American rights, discussion could con
tinue. There were intimations, how
ever, that In the next communication
the United States most likely would
impress on the German government the
serious consequences which will ensue
from any further Invasion of American
rights as proclaimed in the notes al

WASHINGTON. July 11. Warning to
look out for bombs concealed in their
holds was flashed tonight from the
naval wireless towers at Arlington to
the British steamships Howthhead and
Baron Napier, both loaded with cargoes

by Secretary Daniels on receiving a
telegram from a New Orleans newspa

the neighborhood may relay It.

aboard the British steamships Howth
head and Baron Napier to watch for

The writer declared that It was
Muenter who warned passengers on
board the Lusitania before that vessel
sailed from New York that it would
be dangerous to make the voyage on
her. It also is declared that Muenter
personally called on Charles Fohman
and urged him not to take passage on

Every position along the broad na

Formidable Artillery tees.
The most desperate fighting has been
along the short 10-mile front from Arras
to Alx Noulette. which began March
with the taking of a few hundred yards
of trenches on the watershed of Notre
Dame de Lorette, where there are- the
ruins of an old Merovingian military
road. Every day since then some sec

taken, lost or retaken.
Each side has been employing for

A correspondent of the Associated

the Germans and reconstructed by the
French, who now have abandoned them

Upward of 100,000 Germans have
fallen or been captured In these
trenches, according to the French offi

while serious, have been much smaller
than those of the Germans. There are
thickets of little crosses made of twigs
