IN FKYE NOTE INDICATE
SPEEDY END OF CRISIS
Conciliatory Attitude May Be
Preliminary to Adjustment
of Whole Submarine
PRESIDENT STUDIES TEXT
WASHINGTON. Sept. 24. Another step
toward settlement of Gorman-American
difficulties over the former's undersea
warfare was in prospect today.
President Wilson and officials are
studying Germany's noto on tho sinking
of the American schooner William 1.
Frye. While Oermany's concessions and
conciliatory attltudo are gratifying as In
dicate o of ultimate friendly settlement
of the entire submarine controversy, of
ficials Intimate it will be some tlmo be
fore a reply to the Fryo note will be
0 GERMANY'S CONCESSIONS.
Following arc the notable points con
ceded by Germany in the Kre note:
Germany announces "evidenco of its
conciliatory attitude." ,.
This is regarded as evidence of prob
able concessions In the whole sub
Germany agrees not to sink Amor
lean vessels carrying conditional con
traband. New. orders to TJ-boats partly con
cede United States demand for "free
dom of tho seas."
German boats now compelled to ex
ercise "visit and search" of all Ameri
can merchant vessels.
German consent to arbitration of
Frye indemnity sustains principle of
United States against submitting to
German prlzo court.
Consent to Hague arbitration of
Prussian-American treaty avoids an
other possible dispute with Germany.
THE GERMAN SITUATION.
The German situation Is expected to be
completely cleared up soon after Secre
tary of State Lansing returns here next
week. It is understood that Count von
Bcrnstorff quietly has advised the de
partment that ho will b ready to meet
the wishes of the United States on the
The sinking of the Hesperian, however,
has assumed a more serious aspect. In
stead of being a closed diplomatic inci
dent It is now developing Into what may
be a now diplomatic dirtlculty.
Direct conllict of British and German
versions or the Hesperlan's sinking prom
ises a further exchange of notes.
A piecedent for a changed policy by
this Government onthe question of mer
chantmen carrying guns has been set in
the case of tho British steamship Wal
mann, which, after being held up in New
port News for six weeks, finally was
compelled to dismount her 4-Inch gun
before 'Bhe was permitted clearance.
