Washington, Feb. 16. Coincident
with Germany's first steps toward
final settlement or the Lusltanla
cases, official sentiment here todny
turned sharply against acquiescence
In the Teutonic plans to attack armed
merchant ships without warning.
High officials intimated that the
United States will uphold the allies
and deny Germany's right to sink
without warning vessels armed for
German Ambassador von Herns
torff requested to see Secretary Lans
ing at noon. At that time It was
expected he would present ft tenta
tive draft or Germany's final note In
the Lusltanla case. This, according
to reports, accepts America's sug
gested phraseology, but counters with
one or two minor suggestions for
changes In wording. Acceptance of
the note by the state department,
however, Is expected before the end
of the week.
State department headquarters
have suggested all along that they
upheld the Teutonic viewpoint that
unwarned attacks on armed merchant
vessels were Justifiable. Reversal of
this Idea Is understood to be the re
sult of President Wilson's study of
the situation and the caiMnet's con
sideration of the matter.
Some high state department au
thorities may' continue to support the
central powers' claims, tout the ad
ministration, It Is believed, will Insist
that submarines must meet the an
cient and established nflo of Interna
tional law permitting the defensive
armament of merchantmen.
The final attitude of the govern
ment, however, is not likely to be de
termined until the president's per
sonal envoy, Colonel Hoiue. returns
from Europe, It was Intimated to
day . He is now obtaining the Lon
don view and has already learned the
purpose and reasons for Germany In
conversations with Berlin officials.
He will not arrive much before March
1, hence the situation apparently will
-hang fire at least until that time,
Beyond acknowledging the decree,
officials said that no further cognlz-
ance of the Teutonlo plans will be
aken until after the allies announce
their position in the matter.
