GRAVE ASPECT ADMITTED 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.

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.
