VOLUME VHI. LETHBKIDGE, ALBERTA, MONDAY, JULY 26, 1915 NUMBER 190 NEW OFFICIALS OF GKAND MASONIC LODGE OF CANADA Latest Note Angers German People Impossible to Accede to Wilson's Views Berlin via- London, July 2G.-The American note was published in the Sundav morning newspapers. tounl Von Reventlow, in the' Tagcs X.eit- ung, declares that the contents and wording far exceed even thelmost un- favorable anticipations. He writes: "The noto uses language which will find no response with the overwhelm- ing majority or the German nation since it means in the last analysis an appeal lor fear, a threatening, dom- ineering demand. The note will make conceivably bad impression among the people, since it lacks the utterly 'friendly frankness of the German noto, that breaths an almost hateful disregard of the German government's standpoint." The Vbssiche Zeitung says fusal to accept Germany's practical proposal to protect American pass- engers shows an absolute lack of readiness to understand the German standpoint. ".'The Taglischc Runds- chau and the Kreuz Zcitung similar- ly declare, that the American note calls for .most decided opposition and that it requires Great Britain to show at least an equal respect for the spirit of international law as the President demands from Germany. The Tagehlatt says "The note shown clearly that the American gov- ernment cares more for the crippling of the submarine war than for the safeguarding of American lives, Un- 1 ited States must realize that to H, Changs our submarine warfare is out the question." The Tages 'Zeitung says: "Neutrals have rights, but so also has a> nation fighting lot its life. In maintaining the submarine ;watiaiu Germany al- ways Is willing tq'respect the justi- fiable wishes of Americans, but' not at aoy price." Captain Peraius, naval expert of the Tageblatt, says "The American note expresses a decided will to rob 115 In- our battle against England of the weapon on which we place the biggest hopes. By the rejection of the German proposal regarding spe- cial ships United States shows that it, is not striving for the safety of its but rather for the iaming of our submarine campaign. British Opinion London, July 2li.-There is hut one opinion cxpicssed by the British press of the United States note, that in polite language it is an ultimatum, and "the dignified manner in which the President has stood for the prin- ciples" is remarked with satisfaction. "The issue between the two gov- ernments is thus stated in its stern- est and unequivocal terms, says the. Daily Mail, and adds I "Whatever happens, nothing can de- tract from the dignity, high-minded- ness and patient skill with which President Wilson, acting in the name of-humanity and from no merely na-' tional motive has thus far conducted i the diliiculties." The Daily News says: "Oerman- American papers which suggest that ia forcing a quarrel on Oer- manv are guilty of a gross travesty of facts. No government could pos- sibly have given more convincing evi- dence of its pacific intentions than Washington has done under quite un- heard-of provocation. A single in- tractable submarine commander may now destroy in a lew seconds the flimsy fabric which is aU that now remains of German-American fricnd- Chronicle says: "A strong hand is felt under the velvet and the controversy is quietly ad- vanced to a point where old prevari- cations can suffice no lomger. In the face of this note, -the German govern- ment, into whatever negotiations it may has only two practical alternatives, either to abandon its submarine campaign or else to con- tinue it with a knowledge that the next incident like the Lusitania or Palaba will cause the United States to break off diplomatic relations an'd possibly to declare war."
