Secretary Lansing Says Text of German Communication
Will Probably Be Made Public Tomorrow Explanation
May Be Accepted If Intention To Warn Passenber Ves
sels In Future Is Reassert ed Hesperian Case Is Now
Deemed More Important By State Department
GERMAN NOTE ON
Washington, Sept. 9. The Gorman note on tho Arabic torpedoing
reached the state department this afternoon.
Secretary Lansing announced that the note contended the Arnbic
changed Ha course, and that this caused the torpedoing. He claimed
he had not read it carefully enough to know whether or not it offered
reparation for loss of American lives.-
The complete text will probably be made public tomorrow.
The contention of change of course was as Berlin messages had said
it would be. This alleged veering was interpreted by tho commander
of the submarine as meaning that the vessel intended to ram him.

(United Tress Correspondent.)
Washington, Sept. 9. Germany's note
ou the torpedoing at the liner Arabic,
is expected today by the state depart
ment. The administration already has a tol
erably clear idea of its contents. Dis
patches from Staff Correspondent Carl
W, Ackermau of the United Press gave
tikis when they indicated that Germany,
basing its contention on the German
submarine Commander's report, will
plead that the torpedoing resulted from !
the commander s belief that the Ara
bic's maneuvering indicated an intent
to ram the submarine.
High officials said the administration
will accept Germany's plea of "military
necessity" for destroying tho Arabic,
provided Germany re asserts her iuteu
tion to warn vessels, in tho future, be
fore sending them to the bottom.

Austrian Ambassador's Ten
ure of Office Will Depend
Washington, Sept. 9. Upon the state
department investigation now progress
ing, depends Austrian Ambassador
Dumba's tenure of office. There were
signs, too, today tlint the German em
bassy might become involved in the
manifest displeasure of the administra
tion against the known efforts of the
Austriau envoy to hult munition manu
fncture in America.
It was understood that the state de
partment sought, to determine the scope
of an alleged German plan similar to
the Austrian. This plan, revealed in
New York dispatches, included issuance
of newspaper advertisement warnings
to German subjects against continuing
work on allied war contract work, under
penalty of serious trouble from their
The plan, it is claimed, had the ap
proval of the German nmbassador. An
employment agency for Germans who
quit, was established in New York, and
there centered the activities of the Ger
man movement to check the war work.
Germany sometime ago issued a warn
ing neninst subjects making munitions
for the allies and the employment Bur
eau apparently was established soon
No governmental cognizance, how
ever, was taken of the matter as far as
It was believed that President Wilson
mid Secretary Lansing have not yet de
cided what course to pursue toward
Dumbn. Official quarters, .however, ad
rnittod that the affair is serious, and
professed to believe that if Lansing
ntrnln sends for Rumba it will mean
that the decision is against tho envoy.
Rumba, who left last night ostensibly
for Lennox, Mass., was reported to be
in New York today. He had not yet
sent, the promised copy of the enclosure
mentioned in the letter to the Austrian
foreign minister, he tried to forward

Teddy the Bear, Attacks
Keeper in Portland "Zoo'
Portland, Or., Sept. 9. Attacked by
"Ted" the ferocious Alaskan bear in
Washington Park zoo, Charles Herr
mann, animal tender of the zoo, was
badly lncoratod today. He probably
would have been torn to pieces had it
not been for the prompt ac.tiou of

In tho fi(5ht, Herrmann was knocked
to the wound and a deep bite inflicted
on bis leg and another on his arm. The
enraged animal had started to claw and
chew Herrmann's head when Prohaska
hit the bear over the head with a heavy
iron club and drove him off. He then
dragged Herrmann out of the cage.
