After their brief conference neither Lansing nor tho envoy would discuss the situation, but It was understood that In the event of a final settlement at which the proposal Is aimed, the department will not announce it until von Iternstorff has cabled Berlin con cerning it. That tho latest memorandum Is satisfactory was Intimated at the state department, and unless the White House asks a chance tho case will be closed by making today's com munication ft formal answer to the last American Lusltanla note. 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 defense. 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. moreover, mere win De no pnuem I Tne German Lusttania noie wm db Fresno, Cal., Feb. 16. .Six Indian I couples of "Squaw valley" will soon No Photoplays ENTENTE ALU I Alii IX M.KE SOLUM PLEDGE (Uy United Prs Leased Wire.)
