' BY JOHN CALLAN O'LAUGHLIN".
WASHINGTON, May 2. (Special.)
On the eve of the receipt of the Ger
man reply to the American demands In
reference to submarine operations there
is ground for the statement that
President Wilson will break off re
lations with the German government
summarily unless those demands are
complied with in full.
Moreover, response must bear every
evidence of sincerity and of a purpose
to observe the assurances which it is
known it will contain.
Full Requirements Must Be Met.
The note will be subjected to a mi
croscopic inspection by the President
and his advisers. It will be tested to
determine whether It meets the blanket
requirements prescribed in the formal
note, and the specific requirements
subsequently laid down at the request
of the German government. Should it
be found satisfactory, the United States
will continue its policy of watchful
waiting. The first violation will be
followed by an immediate rupture of
Should the note fail to meet the
President's wishes, should it demon
strate a purpose to temporize, Mr.
Wilson will break off relations in
Reply Must Be Conclusive.
In short, according to what was said
today after the meeting- of the
Cabinet, the German communication
must be direct and conclusive so far
as the immediate cessation, of unlaw
ful submarine operations and the
pledges offered for the future are con
cerned. As to the Sussex case, the Adminis
tration is disposed to give some lati
tude to Germany with reference to it.
That is to say, it understands the
Berlin government must conclude a
thorough investigation before making
a decision. The President and Secre
tary Lansing have every confidence, irt
view of the facts presented through
Ambassador Gerard, that an investiga
tion will establish their accuracy. This
being so, it is fully expected the
Admiraltv will order a courtmartial
of the officer responsible and that his
punishment will be based upon the
findings of the court.
Policy of Secrecy Adopted.
The messages which have been re
ceived from Ambassador Gerard are
being guarded with the. utmost care
and it is even denied that he has been
heard from since his visit to grand
headquarters, where he was received
In audience by the Kaiser. The Ad
ministration has adopted this policy of
secrecy because it did not care to
build public hope of an adjustment on
the report of a conversation. It pre
fers to have the formal reply of the
German government speak for itself.
The country knows the President has
demanded that Germany immediately
declare and effect an abandoinent of
its present methods of- submarine war
fare against passenger and freight
carryins vessels. It will not be dif
ficult to determine, after reading tho
German reply .whether this demand
has been compiled with.
President Prepared for Worst.
The President's decision to bring to
an end once and for all the operations
of Grmnn submarines which have im
posea such a heavy toll on American
life was reached and Is clung to in spite
ot the grave consequence it may pro
duce rupture of relations and perhaps
war. Mr. Wilson does not expect any
such outcome of the negotiations, but
he is prepared for it.
Some of Mr. Wilson's advisers do not
fear a rupture. Indeed, they frankly
soy that in their judgment this would
reynit 'n benefit to the country. The
Administration has been disheartened
by the pcaoe-atany-price spirit which
has been shown by the indifference to
injury and the apparent willingness of
millions to accept any stain upon the
National honor, rather than to resort
Thls was responsible for the state
ment in the President's speech: "We
have been thinking too much about in
dividual selves and too little about the
country of which we constitute a part."
It also was responsible for his further
statement that the voice of the New
World will be heard asserting the
standard of justice and liberty.
Lusltanla Anniversary 9iear.

No adjustment has come from the con

Cancellation of Credit Arrangements
Ileported and Strong Feeling
BERLIN, May 2. (By wireless to
Sayville. N.- T.), The representatives
of the Russian Parliament, who were
nvited by the British government to
visit England and the British front on
the Continent, nave arrived in Stock
holm. An Interview given by Professor
Paul Milukoff, leader of the constitu
tional Democrats in the Duma, given
in a dispatch from Stockholm to the
Overseas News Agency, says:
"Professor Milukoff said he purpose
of the visit to England was to Improve
the relations between that country and
Russia, which 'had suffered recently.
A strong feeling against England has
arisen In Russia, causing open misun
derstandings between these nations
and the cancellation of arrangements
for further credits.
"We must show them that England
Is only fulfilling her obligations when
she assists with money," Professor
Milukoff said, "since Russia has sent
her whole army against the enemy,
while no one knows where the British
armies are fighting."
WOMAN FIRES AT COWBOYS

BAKER, Or., May -2. (Special.) A
woman with a rifle stood off three
buckaroos and put them to flight at
the Carroll B mine, and a search fol

leave their names.
Mrs. Leo M. Lockhart, wife of an
employe of the mine, saw cattle drink-

dog after them. Three cowboys ap

her, shooting their "revolvers.
Mrs. Lockhart, however, stepped

Witnesses bringing testimony to sub

the tales loct nothing In the telling
under such conditions. Some of the
manual training teachers were very
outspoken In their opinions as to Mr.
Kerchen's tliness for the position he
holds, but one, the nrst witness for the
defense, was staunchly his friend.

structor at Ockley Green, told of the
opinions voiced by Mr. Kerchen at
meetings of the manual training teach
ers on various occasions. These covered
rather a wide range, from militarism
to religion and back again, including
Socialism. He said it was bis opinion
that Mr. Kerchen did not believe In a
personal God. one who answers prayer,
but rather in a general creator. His
superior, he thought, did not have, much
faith In the authenticity of the Bible
and that once In conversation with an
other teacher, when the origin of life
was the topic, Mr. Kerchen was to 1-1

that the I. W. VV.. organisation Is one
that the country will have to reckon
