Act of Sinking Arabic Dis

DIPLOMATIC SKIES CLEAR
lYushinston Now Prepares to Take
Vp With Britain Long-Delayed
Questions of Interference
With Ocean Trade.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 5. Germany has
completely acceded to the American
demands for settlement of the Arabic
The Imperial government, in a letter
presented today by its Ambassador,
Count von Bernstorff, to Secretary
Lansing, disavows the sinking of the
vessel, announces mat it nas so notified
the submarine commander who made
the attack, expresses regrets for the
loss of American lives, and agrees to
pay an indemnity to their families.
Controversion Believed Knded.
Official Washingeon was both grati
fied and relieved by the diplomatic
victory. The communication delivered
by the Ambassador, pursuant to gen
eral instructions from his government,
spread absolute confidence that there
would be no more submarine contro
versies between the United States and
Oerniany, for the document reveals
that stringent orders have been given
to submarine commanders to prevent

way for amicable settlement of all cases

diplomatic relations between the two

Count von Bernstorff left here to
night happy over the results of his
work, expressing the confident hope
that relations between Germany and
the United States would continue to
With the settlement of the Arabic
controversy, the dispatch to Great Brit
ain of the long-delayed American note
on interference with trade is expected
within a few days. President Wilson
has consistently refused to send this
communication while the issues With
Germany were pending, because the
Berlin government, through its notes,
give the impression that on the action
which the United States took with one
set of the belligerents depended its own
conformity to international law.
As the issues with Germany appear
now to be adjusting themselves, the
President, it is known, feels free to
press Great Britain for a modification
of the orders-in-councll and restric
tions of American trade.
Previous Draft t-:naa tin factory.
It was not until the German Ambas
sador submitted his letter at nearly 1
o'clock today that the change in the
relations between Germany and the
United States became definite. Until
that hour the suggestions which Count
von Bernstorff had made were con
Fidered unsatisfactory. In New York
lnpt Saturday the Ambassador had sub
mitted a draft of a letter in the Arabic
case, but since it did not include the
admission of liability and agreement
. to pay indemnity its terms were not
acceptable to either President Wilson
or Secretary Lansing.
He came to Washington today at
the request of Mr. Lansing. In a few
minutes ho learned of the American
Jovt-rnment's objections and in return
gave oral assurances that these would
In promptly overcome. Keturning to
the embassy, the Ambassador redrafted
the letter originally delivered in New
York and sent it by messenger to tne
Text of Note Given Oat.
Secretary Lansing carried it to the
White House and shortly afterward
announced its text, which follows:
"My Dear Mr. Secretary: Prompted
by the desire to reach a satisfactory
agreement with regard to the Arabic
incident, my government has given me
the following instructions:
"The orders issued by his majesty,
the Emperor, to the commanders of the
German submarines, of which 1 notified
you on a previous occasion, have oeen
made so stringent that the recurrence
of Incidents similar to the Arabic case
Is considered out of the question.
"According to the report of Com
mander Schneider, of the submarine
which sank the Arabic, and his affi
davit as well as those of his men. Com
mander Schneider was convinced tnat
the Arabic intended to ram the submarine.
"On the other hand, the imperial
government does not doubt the good
faith of the affidavit of the British
officers of the Arabic, according to
which the Arabic did not intend to
ram the submarine. The attack of the
Mibmarine was undertaken against the
instructions issued to ilua commander.
The imperial government regrets and
disavows this act, and has notified
Comma ml or Schneider accordingly.
Arabassndor W ill KOttate.
"Under these circumstances, my gov
ernment is prepared to pay an in
demnity for American lives, which, to
its deep regret, have been lost on the
Arabic. 1 am authorized to negotiate
with you about the amount of the in
demnity. I remain, my dear Mr. Lan
sing, yours very sincerely,
"J. VON BBRXSTORKK."
Today's events spread satisfaction
. everywhere, not only at the White
House and State Department, but at
the German embassy as well. The re
, cent crit ical htape of the negotiations
which threatened rupture of diplomatic
relations had raiscxi to the keenest
point the tension at the embassy.
"It is a diplomatic victory for the
United States." the Ambassador re
marked to a friend, "but credit must
bo given to Germany. I believe, for
noMy accepting the word of British
officers that they did not intend to
ram the submarine."
This point, it was learned, at' one
time threatened to interrupt the pro
ceedings, as the German government

"During sessions of the recent Sep
tember frrand jury," said Mr. Hoyne,
""one of the grand jurors requested me
to present evidence against Mayor
Thompson, charging him with mal
feasance in office for not enforcing
the Sunday closing law.
"I declined absolutely. It was the
plan of this grand juror to proceed him
self. Arrangements were made to sum
mon the Mayor before the grand jury
last Friday and on his departure to
indict him. What caused the aban
donment of the plan, I do not know."
Sheriff Traeger was called on to say
whether he would enforce the closing
law in the Cook County towns outside
of Chicago where there are many road
houses. His reply was that he would
consult his attorney.
During the day Chief of Police
Healey repeatedly said that he would
enforce the-orders of the Mayor to the!
lull extent of his power.

Leaders among the temperance work
ers estimated that at a minimum of
940 a saloon nearly $300,000 less would
be spent by citizens every Sunday be
cause of the closing order.
Counsel for the Anti-Saloon League
said that without question the order
would make necessary renewed vigi
lance by anti- saloon workers in the
selection of State Legislators next year,
when an attempt probably would be
made to repeal the Sunday saloon clos
ing law at. least so far as it affected
There also was much discussion over
whether the other sections of the Sun
day law relative to disturbing the peace
of society on Sunday could be -enforced
to prevent Sunday baseball games and
close theaters, drug stores, eating
houses and other Sunday activities.
MAYOR IS IXABLE TO SLEEP
Conscience Dictated Closing Order,
Says Mr. Thompson.
OMAHA, Oct. 5. Mayor Thompson,
of Chicago, en route to the Panama
Pacific Exposition at San Francisco,
told newspapermen here today that his
order closing Chicago saloons on Sun
day was the following out of the "dic
tates of his conscience." The Mayor
"This order will mean the closing of
saloons in Chicago on Sunday for all
time hereafter. The order merely re
quires the enforcement of the law
which has been on the statute books
for years. I am simply following the
dictates of my conscience. There is
no alternative for me."
Members of the party of 70 with
Mayor Thompson said the Mayor had
spent a sleepless night.

Three of Seven Men Xot Yet Arrested
Are Serving; Terms In Federal
Prison on McNeil's Island.
SAX FRANCISCO. Oct. 5, Indict
ments in the alleged Oregon land fraud
case were taken off the secret file to
day and the names of seven men not yet
arrested were made public. Eleven
others, . including one minister, have
been arrested. One pleaded guilty.
The seven men named were S. D.
Aubry, Benjamin F. Fairchild, A. T.
McMenamina, Charles Heaton and three
men now serving terms in the Federal
prison on McNeil's Island, Fred Brant
ner, John W. Logan and John Cogburn.
The indictments charged 18 men with
fraudulently inducing persons to file
claims on timber land along the South
ern Pacific Railroad in Oregon, which
was not open to entry. About 25,000
claims were filed, it was said, and more
than $3,000,000 collected.
Some of the men indicted, it was al
leged, represented themselves as agents
of the Southern Pacific, and others as
Government timber cruisers. It was
alleged they represented that the Gov
ernment was co-operating with the
Southern Pacific in the sale of the land,
which was then and still is in litigation.

Hood's Sarsaparilla surely and ef

other blood diseases because it drives
out of the blood all the humors that
cause these diseases. They cannot be
successfully treated in any other way.
Kxternal applications for their removal
have proven almost useless, because
they cannot drive out the impurities
that are in the blood.
Hood's Sarsaparilla makes pure, rich
blood, perfects the digestion and builds
up the whole system. The skin becomes
smooth, clean and healthy. This great
