LETHBRIDGE. 2-1, 1915 NUMBER 189 New Note Reaches Berlin-Terms Prac- tically Amount to an Mist Protect Neutral Rights Washington, July text 01, the American note on submarine war- 1 fare orcsented at Merlin today by] Ambassador Gerard, was made pub- lic here tonight. It reveals that the Imperial government has been iniorm- cd it is the intention of the United Slates to regard as "deliberately un- friendly" any repetition by tile com- manders of German naval vessels ot acts in contravention of American ri'ihts. The United States announces that it will continue to'contend for the freedom of seas "from whatever quar- _ter violated, without compromise and at anv cost."

The no lu says that the events of the two irionUis clearly indicate that it is "possible and practicable' to conduct submarine operations in substantial accord with the accepted practices of regulated 'warfare. The comment is added tliat the whole world has looked with interest and increasing satisfaction at the demon- stration of this fact by German nav- al commanders, and that it is mani- festly possible to lift the whole prac- tice 'of submarine attack above the criticism which it has aroused and remove the chief causes of offense." In -official and dipjolnatic-quarters the communication .was received as the strongest anil most emphatic pro- nouncement that has come from the Washington government since the be- ginning of its correspondence with the belligerents oi Europe.

What more can the navv do when it cannot find anything to shoot at'! The British navy has swept every German flag from the. oceans of the world." Rev Dr. A. C. Dixon, pastor of Spurg'con's Tabernacle, London, is a native-born American, and, lecturing here lie told bow he endeavored to enlighten his puzzled fellow-coimtry- "You may commit to the 'British navy the protection of Britain, he said "There is no nervousness -worth mentioning over the air raids the microbes kill more people, than Zep- pelins -Vs for the submarines, they are being netted like sharks all round the coasts of Britain, and no one is allowed to say anything. When one is caught the Germans are taken out and British sailors are put. in." Speaking of German culture, Dr. Dixon said it was based on Nietz- sche's doctrine oi the superman and the Kaiser's belief that God was a German. "From my reading of Nietzsche I have, come to the conclu- sion that this superman is one part beast, one part devil and the other part university professor. In Ger- many tlio sinking of the Lusitania was a splendid scientific job, and the man who did it would receive a Knighthood, while tire man who miss- ed the Orduna. would be deposed.
