Moreover Orcat Britain again and again has violated Interna- tional law, surpassing all bounds in I outraging neutral rights. Tim latest measure adopted by (ircat lirilain de- claring German bunker coal contra- hand and establishing coiuliuonu un- der which English bunker coal alone supplied to nothing but an unheard of attempt by way of ex-1 action to force neutral tonnage into tbo services of the British trade war. "German people know that the gov- ernment of the United States has the power to conline the war to armed forces of belligerent countries in the interest of humanity and maintenance of international law. The government of United States would liavo been cer- tain of attaining this end had it been determined to Insist against Great Britain on incontrovertible rights to the freedom of the seas. Hut as mat- j ters stand the German people is .un- der the Impression that the govern- ment of United States, while demand- Ing that Germany, struggling for ex-j istence. shall restrain the use of an effective weapon and while making :omnliance with these demands, a condition for maintenance or rela- tions with Germany, confines Itself ,o protests against illegal methods adopted by Germany's enemies. More- over the German people know to what considerable extent its enemies are supplied with all kinds of war mater- ,1 from the United States. "It will therefore understand ttiat the appeal made by the government of the United, States to the senti- ments of humanity and principles of nternational law cannot under the circumstances meet the same hearty response from German people which such, an appeal otherwise al- ways is certain to find here. "If the German government never- theless is resolved to go to the utmost limit of concessions it has been guided not alone by friendship connecting tho two great nations for over 100 years, tout also by the thought of the great doom which threatens the entire civilized world should the cruel and sanguinary war be extend- ed and prolonged.

May to the ripple of excitement tinc- tured with anxiety made itself mani- fest here this morning when it waa learned that the mines were not work- ing on the morning shift.

They all take a turn seriously threatening the! went back to -work this afternoon maintenance .of "peace between the two Wants to Prevent Break "As far as lies with the German gov- ernment It wishes to prevent Urines ,Iiiitii _. from taking such a course. The Ger-1 Manager Wilson was out when the man government, moreover, is pre- Herald representative called at his pending an adjustment of the'differ- ences arising out of. what they term war conditions which has made their living expenses too high for Uie wages they are allowed under the agreement which binds them for another year pared to do its utmost to confine the operations of war for the rest of Its duration to the fighting forces of the belligerents, thereby insuring the free- dom of the seas, the principle upon which the government believes now as before, that it is in agreement with the government of the United States. The German government, guided by this idea, notified the government of United States that the German naval forces have received the following order; accordance with general prin- ciples of the visit and search and de- struction of merchant vessels recog- nized by international law such ships both within and without the area de- sunk without warning and without saving human lives unless the ship at- tempts to escape or offer resistance.' "But neutrals cannot expect that Germany, forced to fight for existence, shall for the sake of neutral interests, restrict the use of an effective weapon if the enemy is permitted to continue to apply at will methods of warfare violating the rules of international law. Such demand would be Incompatible with the character of neutrality and the German government is convinced that the government of the United States does not think of making such a demand, knowing that the govern- ment ot the United States repeatedly declares that it IB determined to re- store the principle of freedom of the seas, from whatever quarter it has been violated. "Accordingly the German govern- ment is confident that in con, of the new orders to the naval forces the government of the United States will also now consider all Impediments removed which may have been in the way of mutual co-operation toward the restoration of freedom of the seas dur- ing the war as suggested in the note of July 23rd, 1916, and it does not doubt that the government of the United States will now demand and insist that the British government shall forthwith observe the rulei of International law universally recog- nized before the war as are laid down in notes presented by the government ot the United States to tho British government, December 28th, 1914, and November 5th, 1916. "Should, steps taken by the govern- ment of the United Statas not attain the object it desires, to have the laws of humanity followed by all belliger- ent nations, the German government would then be facing a new situation In which it. must reserve to itseU com- plete liberty of 'decision."
