WASHINGTON, Sept. 1..
"Liners will not be sunk by our submarines without warning
and without safety of the lives of noncombatants, provided that
the liners do not try to escape or offer resistance" was the
written statement of Ambassador Bernstorff, conveying his
official instructions to the Secretary of State today on the German
answer to the latest Lusitania note.
The full text of the Ambassador's note to the Secretary of
State was as follows:
My dear Secretary :
With reference to our conversation this morning,
I beg to inform you that my instructions concerning
. our answer to your last Lusitania note contains the
following passage : "Liners will not be sunk by our sub
marines without warning and without safety of the lives
of noncombatants, provided that the liners do not try
to escape or offer resistance."
Although I know you do not wish to discuss the
Lusitania question till the Arabic incident has been
definitely and satisfactorily settled, I desire to inform
you of the above because this policy of my Government (
'"""was decidecf on Def ore the Arabic incide'nt"dccurr?d. "" "
I have no objections to your making any use you
may pleasfi of the above information.
I remain, my dear Mr., Lansing,
Very sincerely yours,
ar ; J. BERNSTORFF.
Commenting on the foregoing statement, Secretary of State
Lansing would only say "that in view of its clearness it seemed-
needless to make any comment in regard to it" other than to
say that it appeared to be "a recognition of the fundamental)
principles for which we have contended."
Germany has fully accepted America's interpretation of the
rules under which her submarines may operate.
Lansing made the following statement immediately after
Count von Bernstorff left:
"Ambassador von Bernstorff said that his Government
accepted our position in principle."
On leaving the State Department Count von Bernstorff stated
that he considered the submarine issue, as raised in the cases of
the Gulflight, Lusitania and Arabic, a closed incident.
He said that he had not taken up details at this time. The
question of payment for the Lusitania and Arabic victims and of
formal disavowal would be discussed by him later with Secretary
Count von Bernstorff said he had not received any further
details about the Arabic, but that he had been chiefly concerned
in clearing up the great issues that have caused the strained
relations between the United States and Germany.
It was learned that Count von Bernstorff has been urging his
Government to accept the viewpoint of the United States ever
since he had his conference with President Wilson shortly after
the Lusitania was sunk. He has been supported in his efforts by
the liberal elements in Germany, but it was not until within a
very brief period that the military and naval powers were won
over to his way of thinking.
