C„ March 1.—The state department today officially confirmed the fact that Foreign Minister Zimmerman of the Oerman government, on January 19, wrote to the German minister at Mexico City suggesting an alliance between Mexico, Japan and Germany by which they were to make war on the United States snd as payment Mexico was to get "lost territory" ln New Mexico, Texas and Arizona. Secretary Lansing in discussing tbe Mexican angle of the plot authorized the following statement: "I am confident that Mexico would ■iot bo a party to puck * plot in view of the friendly relations between this country and the defacto government. "So far as.the general plot ls east- cerned, we know that it ls in every way*, true. But we cannot make publie all detain for fear of endangering the lives of our informants. "We do not believe that Japan had any knowledge of this or that she would consider any proposition made by an enemy." In confirming the plot by Germany agalnat the United States, Secretary of State Lansing took pains to exonerate from knowledge or complicity both the Imperial Japanese government and the present de facto government In Mexico, The secretary Indicated that he did not believe tbat General Carranza had actual knowledge of the plot. That knowledge was conveyed to certain other leading Mexicans by the German minister to Mexico and the details ot which these men actually are or of what tbey intended to do are withheld Had Offlcial Proof Short Time The state department made lt plain that It haa had the plot ln Its possession only a brief time but that it has had a straight suspicion that this plot was ln progress for some four months. All of the facts of tba plot were placed In the possession of the Japanese ambassador by Counselor Polk of the state department. He cabled them at onoe to Toklo. It la expected here that a statement dealing with the facts wlll shortly be forthcoming from the Japanese government Itself. SPURN PLANS OF High Embassy Official Says Dastardly Plot is German Propaganda GERMANY~DROWNING AND SEEKS A STRAW Says Relations of United States and Japan Were Never More Cordial International News Service. Washington. D. C, March 1.—Establishing a precedent ln diplomatic action here, the Japanese embassy this afternoon, on Its own Initiative, Issued a flat denial that Japan under any circumstances would consider any suggestions made by Germany to enter Into intrigue against the United States. The statement, as Issued, was as follows: "With regard to the alleged German attempt at inducing Japan and Mexico to make war upon the United States, made public through the press this morning, the Japanese embassy, while lacking information as to whether such Invitations ever reached Toklo, desires to state in most emphatic language that aay invitation of this sort would in no circumstances be entertained by the Japanese government, which is in entire accord aad In close relationship with thp allied powers in accordance wtth the formal agreement and Of common causes, and moreover whoso friendship with tho United States is every day growing In sincerity and cordiality."

C, March 1.—Japan would Instantly spurn any proposition looking to a coalition with Germany and Mexico against United States— as suggested by Herr Zimmerman, the Oerman foreign minister—it was stated authoritatively at the Japanese embassy here today. The embassy here for the time being will issue no official statement or take any official attitude on the sensational disclosures that being. It was stated, a matter that ts entirely in the hands of the Toklo government. All the facts in the case as they are known here have been transmitted to Toklo and will be left for officials tbere to handle as they see tit. But the Japanese attitude in the entire matter was outlined to the International News Service today by one of the higher officials of the embassy here. "We don't for a minute doubt the truth of the charges," he said. "But we believe that tbe proposition was made blindly—that Herr Zimmerman merely struck blindly In the dark in the hope that he might strike something that would give aid to tbe fast weakening central powers. It Is German propaganda, promulgated partly to Inspire fear of a foreign intrigue in this country and partly to bold out a straw to the people of the central powers. Germany Is the drowning man and this ts tbe straw. "There has been for some time an Insidious spreading throughout Ger many of the idea tbat relations between the United States and Japan are ln a critical position. This ls abso lutely untrue. Never bave the relations between the two nations been more cordial. "Mr. Obta, the secretary of the Japanese legation at Mexico City, Is a warm friend of tho United States. He was In Washington himself for three years. As for Ilaron Von Schoen, we only knew hlm slightly here." mmmem^e. BY JQHN EDWIN NEVIN . International News Service Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, D. C, March 1.—Complete and elaborate confirmation that Germany has endeavored to line up Mexico and Japan as enemies of the United States is in the hands of President Wilson. As a result representations now are being made to General Carranza at Mexico City, which may result in the withdrawal from Mexico of German diplomatic agents and possibly of the German minister to Mexico, Count Von Eckhardt. These representations are shrouded in complete secrecy by the administration, but it is admitted that General Carranza already has been given to understand that the German plotting against the United States on Mexican soil is a "grossly unfriendly act." The entire international situation so far as the relations between the United States and Germany are concerned was extremely srious today. This latest manifestation of unfriendliness, complete proof of which has been gathered by the agents of the United States, reveals a plot of such widespread ramifications and serious enmity toward the United States as to be almost unbelievable. It is thought that within a very short time the president will let all of the facts become known, either through a direct statement to congress from the White House or a communication to the foreign affairs committee of the senate by Secretary of State Robert S. Lansing. The text of the note written by German Foreign Minister Zimmerman to Count Von Eckhardt, which was dated January 19, and was sent to Mexico City through Count Von Bernstorff, has been in the hands of President Wilson for several days. It is not stated where it came from, but it is known that its existence first was reported to the United States by * Ambassador Fletcher when he reached Mexico City to take over his duties there as the new American ambassador trt Mexico. It has been an open secret ln official circles here that German Influence and German mone.- has been utilized to a very great extent in anti- American plotting In Cuba, Mexico and certain Central and South American countries. The agents of Oermany have been financed from this city. Until he .left Count Von Bernstorff sent large quantities of gold south at stated periods. In addition. German fiscal agents ln New YOrk City were doing tbe same thing. Many of these particular shipments are known to the United States through reports of Its secret Berviee agents. Not alone the amounts sent eMMtMwMMMyWWWWMeMeltMeNeM Imt; where they were sent is a mstkef er record hers. Oae of the last acta of the retiring' Gorman ambassador was to furnish a large quantity of money to Baron Von Schoen, who was transferred from the position of embassy secretary here to Mexico City. Think Japs Still Support Allies What action has been taken by Germany in its endeavor to draw Japan away trom its allegiance with the entente and to throw its influence toward the central powers is not known. The state department and administration officials refused point blank to discuss that phase ot the general situation today. It was stated unofficially that Japan has within a very brief time reaffirmed to the entente ber complete alliance to their joint cause. And officials believe that if the German campaign to involve tiie United States has hinged enUrely on Japanese support that it was certain to fail. Only a very short.time ago reports reached the state department from authentic sources showing that German agents bad been endeavoring to reconcile the differences existing between Germany and Japan. It was stated at the time that there was a renewal of the peace efforts which were set on foot by German reports following the fall of Klao Chau and that the representations had met with no more welcome reception than they had when orlglnaly presented. One evidence of the depth of feeling stirred in administration circles here today over the German plotting developments was the flat announce- (Continued on Page Four) HEALTH LEAGUE FUND HELPS THE TUBERCULAR Over $46 was realized by the Public Health league by the benefit at the New Columbia Theatre last week. Con slderlng that the benefit was held ln Lent, when many church goers do not attend theatres, tke results are very pleasing. This money will materially aid the work of the league whlcb buys medicines, glasses, braces, els, for the poor scbool children of the elty and pays the bills for tbe tubercular work of the Associated Charities such as buying milk, eggs, tents, out-door porches and furnishes transportation for tubercular patients to Springfield Lako sanitarium. The league bas set aside $400 to be devoted to an open air school, $100 for the poor children and takes care of all the charity work for tbe relief of tubercular patients.
