Washington, Feb. 11. The
Vnited States cannot protest the
Teutonic plan of torpedo

stated today on the highest of

the central powers are within
their rights in pursuing such a
course, the administration soon
will warn Americans not to
travel on armca belligerent
ships, it seems certain.
Tho American attitude to
ward arming such ships was set
forth in the formal suggestion
recently made to the allies,

London, Feb. 11. Issues as grave as
tho Lusitania case may arise between
the United States and the central pow

intent to attack armed merchantmen.
The entente allies do not yield the
right to arm such vessels for defensive
purposes, a practice universally recog

that, America having recognized this
right, will change her policy in the
midst of tho war, though Rhe has sug

Authorities here believe that the
United States would take prompt and
decisive action in the event that an
Austrian or German submarine tor

the central powers here are understood
to haVe information from the state de
partment on which they base the hope
that the administration will soon dis
claim responsibility for Americans trav
eling on armed belligerent ships.
It is believed that the British am
bassador, Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, will
soon take up the matter of the Tcptonic
plans informnlly with Secretary Lans
ing. There is no indication in ullie
diplomatic circles, however, that the
central powers announcement has alter
