' WASHINGTON, July 23.
Tho American note's delivery to Ger
many today cast the dlo so far as futuro
relations between tho two countries are
Ambassador Gerard was instructed to
send a confidential report of tho noto's re
ception by German officials and also by
tho German public.
Late, this afternoon copies of tho noto

Arrangements wero mado by tho State
Department to furnish copies also to all
belligerents' diplomatic representatives
here. ItB full text was cabled Thursday
night to American diplomats In tho war
ring countries. Summaries were sent to
other American representatives abroad.
Tho note's effect on public opinion hero
nnd In Germany was awaited anxiously In
official quarters. The Administration was
resigned to some criticism from both
sources. .

pected. Whether it assumes considerable
proportion, it was believed, depends On
German officialdom's attitude.
Indications were that Germany would
delay replying for some time. Tho note
does not require a reply or a promise to
modify undersea operations, eventually,
however, It was expected Germany will
send another note.
Whllo tho President Is ready for any
eventualities ho has not decided definitely
what course should be pursued If the
Lusltanla Incident wero repeated.
A special session of Congress might bo
called, or diplomatic relations might ba
severed without congressional action.
If Germany should order her submatine
commanders to obey the policy Insisted
upon by the United States, and by acci
dent or mistake a submarine's captain
should disobey theso orders, an Immedi
ate break with Germany will not neces
sarily follow, officials said tlmo would
bo allowed for an Investigation.
Dudley F?eld Malone, Collector of tho
Port of New York, conferred with Presi
dent Wilson today. It is believed the sub
marine attack upon the Orduna-was under
discussion. The inquiry has been con
ducted by Mr. Malono under direction of
the Treasury Department,
Mr. Malone later submitted his report
on tho Orduna matter to the Treasury
Department and had a talk with Sec
retary of State Lansing. He said any
statement concerning this investigation
must come from the State Department
and President Wilson.

Ono of tho brightest phases of tho pres

tho shipments of bituminous coal to for

moro than 125 per cent., and It Is ad
vancing with leaps and bounds.
In April, May nnd June the shipments
totaled 290,430 tons, against 116,732 for the
first three months of tho year. For tho
six months tho exports aggregated 40C.063
tons, compared with 316,303 tons In tho
same period of tho previous year, a gain
of !rj,6G5 tons.
July has been the banner month, a total
of 116,610 tons having been sent out during
the first 20 days. Last year In the enttrt,
