Ambassador's Efforts To Cripple Manufacturing Plants In
This Country Results In Demand For His Recall-Action
of State Department Creates Sensation In Diplo

By Charles P. Stewart. i
(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, Sept. 10. delation's be
tween America and Austria-Hungnry
were strained today to the breaking
point, following America's request for
Austrian Ambassador Dumba 's recall
because of iis efforts to cripple Ameri
can munition plants :n which Austrians

clusion.' reached in authoritative circles
here. Ccrtninly, admitted high officials
the request for his recall is pregnant
w ith possibilities of an ?pen break.
If Austria refuses to heed the Ameri
can request, and recall Dumba, the
United States government will hand
him his passports. Such a course, it
is believed, would be followed by Aus
tria's handing passports to American
Ambassador l'enfield at Vienna.
There was good ground for the be
lief that Dumba V home government
may back him up in his recent activ
ities. It was pointed out that he ap
parentlv wag acting with the direct
approval of Austria, though the foreign!
orliee pernaps did not, know the exact

officials said a more serious issue would
be forced thi.n the mere elimination! of
Dumba- as diplomatic representative
nere. The administration, however, con
fidently hopes that Austria will comply
with the recall request.
This government is alreadv arrang
ing with tiie allies for a safe conduct
tor the envoy. The general opinion
here was that Dumba will be recalled
but that Austria will not immediately
appoint his BiieYessor. Baron Erick
Xwiedenck, counsellor of the embassy
will be made chnrg d affaires, it is
Prompt action is expected from Vi
enna. The American request is al
ready there. An answer within two
days is anticipated because of a prob
ability that Austria wishes to prevent
more grievous rupture than already
ennrronts tne two nations.
.Dumba 's passports have been prepared
and will be forwarded to him ns soon
as Vienna. 'a plans are known'. He will
not call again at the state department,
and probably will not return to Wash
It was officially stated that Presi
dent Wilson' was most reluctant to net
against Dumba, desiring to avoid n
broach, particularly at a time when re-
bilious with Austria's ally, Germany,
are already strained.
The piesibility was suggested that a
similar issue will be raised with Ber
lin on account of German Ambassador
Von Bernstorff 'a relations with Ameri
can Correspondent Archibald, and the
envoy s alleged interest in a German
plan to call out German munition work

If Austria supports Ambassador
Dumba. and insists that it was not only
his right, but his duty to warn Aus
trians against rorking in munition
plants the crisis will be reached.
In such an event, there would un
doubtedly be diplomatic negotiations
to thresh out the old dispute of "dual
citizenship." The issue of rights of a
foreigner, without naturalization in this
country, has not arisen in a long time.
It was regarded as possible, however,
that to avoid a further breach, Austria
would merely register its displeasure
and give its moral support to Dumba
by failing to appoint a successor.
JMplomutic etiquette practically re
quires his recall. The "code'Vof re
lations between governments gives
America the rigiit to determine a dip

Ambassador l'enfield was instructed
by cable yesterday to deliver the fol

Iiondnu, Sept. 10. Anti-German out
breaks here aie feared today as a result
of Wednesday's night Zeppelin attack
against the city and eastern counties.
German shops, boarded up since the
recent anti-German activities, and the
subsequent interment of alien subjects,
are under close guard, lest mobs wreak
their fury upon the establishments.
Feeling as a result of the raids is at
fever height. Nothing thus fur in the
war, ns it affects England, has aroused
such horror and resentment as the last
sweep of Count Zeppelin's air ships..
The public, is angered, however, rath
er thun terrorized. Nevertheless in
suranee companies are swamped wit
orders for protection policies. The gov
ernment insurance bureau is charging
less than fifty cents per $500 airship
insurance on dwellings, but in the case
of protection for business buildings D
rate is higher.. This, was regarded as
evidence that the business community
at least anticipates further destrtictiou,
The horror of the nation was voiced
today in editorial comments in the leua
ine papers. A typical comment was tne
editorial in the Telegraph.
'The raids ginned the Hermans no
military advantage," said the paper.
"aud they were unsuccessrui in terriry

In his conference with newspapermen
today Secretary of State Lansing ex
plained that this government would
wait a "reasonable time" for Austria
to comply with American demands for
Dumba 's recall.
The intimation was plain, that this
government was prepared to hand Diiui
bu his passports if Austria does not re

confident this notion will not be neces
sary. Lansing said a refusal on the part id
Austria to grant the Americun request

bassador Dumba 's whereabouts today
were unknown but there wero evidences

While he left Washington Wednesday
night, ostensibly for his summer homo
at Lenox, Mass., it was stated there to
day that he had not left the St, Regis.
At tho latter pluce it was declared
left last night for Lenox which is only
a few hours from here.
The relations between Von Bernstorff
and Archibald center around alleged
transmission of a private letter, for the
embassy's military attache to the bit
ter's wife in Germany. Despite the
fact that tho lid ter was personal, of
ficials suggested that, if he had used an
American to pass it, the embassy wan
guilty of an impropriety. The letter is
said to contain slighting references

Its disavowal of liability for repara
tion for American lives lost aboard the
Arabic and hence, infereiitially, also
for Lusitaniii victims, presented u fresh
dispute which may embarrass settle

Prospects were that Ameriua's reply

displeasure at Germany's new stand.
The German note while expressing re
great that lives were lost in the Arabic
torpedoing, justified the commander s
action oa the ground that he anticipat

he intended ramming him. Despite this
"regret" Germuny maintained It was
