IN ARABIC CRISIS
Creator of Submarine War
Agrees "With Policy of
Hojlweg and Von Jagow
NOT HOSTILE TO AMERICA
By CARL W. ACKERMAN
BERLIN, Aug. 30.
Grand Admiral von Tlrpltz, creator of
tho German submarine policy that gave
rise to dinicultlcs with America, believe,
with Chancellor von Bethmann-Hollweg
and Foreign Secretary von Jagow, that
all. differences with America should be
adjusted at once.
, Von Tlrpltz, It Is understood, does not
ine aiiacK on me jvraDic. lie aesires
that, most friendly relations between the
United States and Germany be established
In the negotiations already In progress,
but Is not yet convinced this end can be
attained only by repudiation of the act of
one of his submarine commanders.
The cource of the following Information
cannot be disclosed, but It Is an absolute
fact that Germany's viewpoint Is as fol
lows: First. Germany hopes that the Ameri
can Government will consider the ' In
formal representations already made to be
sufficient, until the offlclal report of the
submarine commander Is received.
Second The question of whether the ac
tion of the submarine commander shall
bo disavowed must rest largely upon this
The submarine report may bo expected
at any moment. Probably It will bo re
ceived this week. It Is possible It may not
bo forwarded to Berlin for a fortnight.

DEAD LINE POLICY
ALONG U.S. BORDER
TO PACIFY MEXICO
No Quarter to Be Shown
CARRANZA MUST SUBMIT
Embargo to Ruin First Chief if
He Refuses to Talk
WASHINGTON, Aug. SO.-The United
States pinna to establish a "dend line"
nlcng tho Mexican border. Virtually the
entire force that has been massed at
Tixas City, with the exception of one
regiment, which Is to go to tho Phil
ippines, will bo distributed along tho Rio
Grande. It will bo directed to put
down brlgandago with an Iron hnnd.
Mexican ban'dlts who try to cross with
arms In their hands will be killed on
sight. In addition, nn Ironclnd embargo
will bo placed on ull cxportatlons to Mex
ico of munitions from the United States.
In other words, tho Administration la
determined that tho tactics which forced
Hucrta owt of power In Mexico City will
bo resortefl to to put Into power tho pro
visional pi tsldcnt to be selected by the
pcuco conference that Is to bo fathered
by tho United States nnd the South Ameri
can republics. Neither Carranza nor any
other factional leader who does not sub
scribe to' the plan will bo able to get
arms or supplies of any kind. And the
State Department Is taking pains to see
that all. of CarranzA's generals have this
fnct Impressed on them.
General Scott, Chief of Staff of the
Army, Is at Fort Myer, and Is expected
to confer with Secretary ot State Lansing
and Secretary of War Garrison regarding
tho Mexican situation this afternoon. He
will detail his conferenco with Villa,
which resulted In tho Conventlontst
chief's acceptance of tho Pan-American
peace parley proposal.
Regardless of the developments of tho
conference, It Is understood the Adminis
tration Is resolved upon the embargo.
TO BREAK CARRANZA.
By this means It Is hoped that the ef
forts of the First Chief to present a solid
front of opposition to any plan of cndlns
the Mexican revolution, other than recog
nition of his government, will be rendered
useless. The army will enforce the em
bargo on the frontier, and the collectors
of customs at the various ports of the
United States will prevent munitions
being Bent by sea to any organization
but the recognized government.
Meanwhile the massed troops on the
border will bo able to prevent any "Inva
sion of America" should the rebellious
factions attempt a raid across tho border.
All Is quiet at Vera Cruz, Admiral Mc
Lean reported to the Navy Department
today. From Admiral Howard, on the
west coast of the republic, came, similar
reassuring reports.' "
MONTEREY'S FALL NEAR.
The capture of Monterey by the Vll
llstas "seems Imminent," according to an
announcement by the Carranza agency
The Carranza garrisons from all sur
rounding towns have been rushed to
Monterey. Despite this the Constitution
alists fear they will lose tho city.
From Brownsville the Carranza agency
received a dispatch saying a party of.
Americans had just arrived thero from
Monterey. A troop train followed the
train carrying the Americans. Five miles
from Monterey the troop train halted and
blew up' a railroad bridge after the pas
senger train had crossed It.
