Inquiry Into Sinking of Japa
nese Liner Begun.
Baron Zwiedinek Tells Secretary
Lansing III Government Be
tiires to Maintain Good Hela.
tions in Ancona Cane.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 31. Tba State
Department today began an Inquiry
Into the sinking in the Mediterranean
of the Japanese liner Yasaka Maru by
cabling the American consular agent
at Port Said. Egypt, to gather and for
ward promptly all available details.
Prompt action followed receipt of un
official reports that the vessel had been
torpedoed by an Austrian submarine
without warning, thereby endangering;
the life ef an American citizen who
was on board.
Should official verification of the re
ports be received, the matter will be
the subject of further diplomatic cor
respondence with Austria-Hungary. Of
ficials made no attempt to conceal the
fact that tha sinking of the Yasaka
Maru under the alleged circumstances
would seriously complicate the nego
tiations over tha sinking of the Italian
steamship Ancona.
Kwledlnek' Message Encouraging.
Baron Erich Zwledinek, charge of the
Austro-Hungarian embassy here, is un
derstood to have told Secretary Lan
sing at an informal conference that
in preparing a reply to the second
American note the Vienna foreign of
fice would be guided by concern for
the good relations at present extstlnsr
with the United States Government.
This tended to ease somewhat the ex
isting tension, though there was no in
dication that Austria had decided to
comply with the demands of the Unit
ed States for disavowal, punishment of
the commander of the submsrlne and
reparation by the payment of Indem
nity for the Americans killed or in
jured. The United States does not contem
plate entering Into extended diplomatic
exchanges over the Ancona case. Un
less some good reason presents itself
for further negotiations, the United
fitatea. It is said, will consider as final
the reply to its second note, which.
Baron Zwledinek informed Secretary
Lansing today, probably would arrive
some time before Wednesday.
New Expected From Egypt.
In the course of his call on Mr. Lan
sing the charge was understood to have
discussed informally the preso dis
patches concerning the sinking of the
Yasaka Maru. However, he had no in
