HUE III III AMERICAN SHIPS WILL ARMED; THEN MOVE TO BE IS UP No Relaxation of tiie Grim Tension Caused by the Sinking of the Laconia—There is a Generally Growing Belief That the Sinking of Big Cunarder Would Not Be Charcterized by the Administration as "An Act of War"—German Chancellor's Speech is Construed as a Direct Challenge to America. BY JOHN EDWIN NEVIN International News Service Staff Correspondent. Washington, D. C, Feb. 28.—President Wilson waited today on congress. He will take no additional step to bring the general international crisis, caused by Germany's announcement of unrestricted submarine operations being resumed and emphasized by the sinking of tbe Ijwonla with its loss of two American women, to a head until congress shall express itself. The president, officials close to him said, believes that when the country has declared Itself congress will give him the power he has asked. There has b<een no relaxation of the grim tension precipitated by the sinking of the Laconia. None Is immediately looked for, but tbere was a generally growing belief in offlcial quarters tljis afternoon that the sinking of the Cunarder would not be characterised by the administration as "an act of war." "The onus.of the actual break will be placed on Oermany," waa the word quietly passed o,ut from official circles "The president will arm American ships no matter what congress shall do and then he will wait to see what German submarines will do." The address of the Imperial German Chancellor yesterday was accepted ln administration circles as a direct challenge, because of Its tone, lt was believed that when tbe American line resumes sailings next week its ships wlll be ln as great danger as are those of the entente. But It was said that the president is determined that these Interrupted sailings, shall be resumed and it is certain that inasmuch a* these liners are to be armed they will be considered subject to attack by German submersibles. "We sire moving step by step and moment by moment," explained a cabinet member today. "Because of this speculation ls unwise. We must do as we think best, but cannot outline a policy that might be changed by some unforeseen development at a second's notice. eWare hoping for the best but are prepared for the worst." Committee Approves Flood Bill, But Limits Some ot the Authority President Asked International News Service. Washington, D. C. Feb. 28.—By a vote of 7 to 4, the house foreign affairs committee today reported favorably the Flood bill authorizing the president to arm merchantmen, but denying the president the right to employ "other Instrumentalities." Tbe president la authorized "to protect such ships and the citizens of the United States against unlawful attack while in their lawful and peaceful pursuits on the high sea*." The committee also adopted a proviso prohibiting the war risk Insurance for Issuing insurance to vessels carrying munitions of war. The members who voted against the bill plan to submit minority reports reflecting their views on the present International situation. Representative Thomas of Oklahoma, Democrat also plans to. submit a report. The committee was opposed to adopting In any form an amendment denying the authorization of armament to ship* carrying munitions or limiting such armament to ships carrying non-contraband. Instead, as a concession to the opposition tbe committee voted to except ships carrying war munition* from the protection of the war risk insurance bureau. There was no opposition to the granting of the president $100,000,000 to carry out the provisions of the hill. P. A. 8, Franklin of New York, president 8t the American line in a letter to Representative Bennett today de dared tbat the United Slates ought to lose no time la letting the world know that American guns and Amer lean pointers will hereafter protect Americans oa the high seas. "What the United States ought to do," wrote Mr. Franklin, "1* to an nounce to whom it may concern that there is only one trans-Atlantic passenger carrying service under the American flag and that service Is under contract to the Unlt<sd States government to sail regularly every Saturday, and further, tbat the United States is determined to have a trans- Atlantic passenger carrying service available for its citizens, government officials and others to cross the Atlantic upon and that, as it ls Impracticable to properly convoy such steamers, they are to be manned, gunned and officered by the United States navy and anybody tbat Interferes with them in any manner will do so at their peril. "Such position would have the country behind lt and would enable self- respecting Americans to hold their heads up." Tbe rules committee will meet tomorrow morning to adopt a rule limiting debate on the flood bill so Its early passage through the house may be assused. Would Hurrender U. S. Rights In his minority report Representative Sbackleford advocates the surrender of American rights to navigate the high seas. "In my Judgment," says Sbackleford, "our interest counsels that we should remain at peace, that we should forego our rights to navigate the high seas embraced ln the war zones declared by Great Britain and Germany, rather than to wage war to enforce such rights." "We could not wage war without the expenditure of billions of billions," he declared, and said tbat war would mean that bousands of young men would shed blood and that thousands of young women would be deprived of husband*. IOT BE AMENDED Washington, IX C, Feb. 28.—Democratic leaders dropped a bomb into the Republican opposition to the emergency revenue Mil thia afternoon hy announcing they would offer no further amendments to the measure, but would accept lt aa It passed the house Thi* means no conference wlll be necessary and that the measure can be ■oat to tte president immediately upon tt* passage tonight.
