occasion President took his action today with the calm confidence that Congress and the country will stand behind The grim faced body of Senators and Representatives who less than a month ago heard the President pro nounce the words which announced a severance of diplomatic relations with act which in all the history of first class Nations al ways had led to today in tense silence and grave

follows Gentlemen of the Congress I have again asked the privilege of ad dressing you because we are moving through critical times during which it seems to me to be my duty to keep in close touch with the houses of so that neither counsel nor action shall run at crosspurposes between Todays official I 8 V To Disregard Promises On the 3d of February I officially informed you of the sudden and un expected action of the Imperial Ger man Government in declaring its in tention to disregard the promises it had made to this Government in April and undertake immediate submarine operations against all commerce whether of belligerents or of that should seek to ap proach Great Britain and the Atlantic coasts of Europe or the harbors of the Eastern Mediterra and to conduct those opera tions without regard to the estab lished restrictions of international without regard to any con siderations of humanity even which might interfere witji their That policy was forthwith put into It has now been in active exhibition for nearly four Its practical results are not fully The commerce of other neutral Nations is suffering but very much more severely than it was already suffering before the 1st of when the new policy of the Imperial Government was put into We have asked the cooperation of the other neutral Governments to prevent these but I fear none of them has thought it wise to join us in any common course of Our own commerce hau is rather in ap 14JUUUUIU41 Ut JutlUli because American ships have been Two American Ships Sunk Two American vessels have been theHousatohic and the

which might no have been suspected at any time in connection with the use of the sub marine against merchantmen as the German Government has used Tying Up of Our Shipping In the situation we find ourselves in with regard to the actual conduct of the German submarine warfare against com merce and its effects upon our own ships and people is substantially the same that It was when I ad dressed you on the 3d of February except for the tying up of our ship ping in our own ports because the unwillingness of our shipowners to risk their vessels at sea without in surance or adequate and the very serious congestion of our commerce which has a con gestion which is growly rapidly more and more serious every This in might presently ac in what the new German submarine orders were meant to so far

than German Instructions But while this is happily it must be admitted that there have been certain additional indications and expressions of purpose on the part of the German press and the German authorities which have in creased rather than lessened the im pression that if our ships and our people are spared it will be because of fortunate circumstances or be cause the commanders of the Ger man submarines which they may liappen to encounter exercise an un ixpected discretion and rather than because of the instruc tions under which tfcose commanders are It would be foolish to deny that the situation is fraught with the gravest possibilities and No thoughtful man can fail to see that the necessity for definite action may come at any if we are in and not in to defend our elementary rights as a neutral It would be most imprudent to be Congress About to End 1T ft o ri unmindful of fant that Feb Cu nard Line steamship of tons which sailed from New York Feb 18 for has been The
