Know's Austria's Answer.
Berne,* Feb. 23.- Austria's reply to
the United States defining 1*m posi-
tion in the submarine war is known
in Berlin# according to the Frankfur-
ter Zeitung which predicts that a
breach of relations between Washing-
ton and Vienna is inevitable. The pa-
per's Berlin correspondent says:
"The memorandum which President
Wilson has sent to the Vienna gov-
ernment leaves no doubt that the
breach of relations between the United
States and Germany will soon be fol-
lowed by a breach w ith Austria Hum
gary. President Wilson wishes to be
clearly told whether the Austrian-
Hungarian government has withdrawn
its earlier declaration regarding the
c onduct of submarine warfare. Real-
ly one ought to think that the expla-
nation given by Austria-Hungary at
the beginning of the unrestricted sub-
marine warfare to the effect that from
1'ebruary 1 all ocean traffic in the
blockaded zones would be prevented
by all means, should not be capable
of misconception. But in his dealings
with the Central Powers, President
Wilson is always painfully exact.
Submarine Issue Still Unsettled.
Washington, I*eh. 22 1' '• general-
ly accepted idea that President Wil-
ldre. s Congress again on
the German crisis before the end of
next week virtually was confirmed
today In official quarters.
There was no announcement and it
was raid that the President still was
considering hh next step, but offi-
cials pointed out the neecs. ily of Con
gress making provision for an emer-
gency which migat. arise after ad-
journment and explained that the
Pre ident would ask not for a decla-
ration of war, but merely authority to
protect American rights.
The President, it was reiterated, is
just as anxious as any member of the
Senate or House to avoid war, al
though determined that the rights of
the United State be respected. One
of his reasons for desiring action by
Washington, Feb. 22 Absolute pro-
hibition legislation took its longest
forward stride in the Nation's history
today when the- House, after two hour
of uproarious debate, approved by a
four io one majority a Senate meas-
ure which would raise an ironclad
barrier against importation i t liquor
into prohibition states. It is expected
to receive the approval of President
Wilson within a week, adding imme-
diately to the "bone dry" territory
about one-third of Continental United
The provision is regarded as the
most far reaching that could be enact-
ed by the federal government, and as
sweeping as would be possible under
any method short of a national prohi-
bition amendment. It would cut off
entirely liquor importations, amount
ing now to millions of dollars annual
\\, into the large number of suites
which have forbidden manui ie ture or
sale, but have permitted impor ation j
lor personal use.
The roll call brought e he- s and |
cries of "bone dry" from all |. rts of * j
,he House, and the result was greeted j
with a noisy demonstration.
The vote as officially aim > need :
was 321 to 72. but a ivehei-U ol the

corded on any measure.
'• A provision barring liquor advertise- |
ments from the mails in states that
prohibit such advertising is ineluded
in the measure which came before the
House as a rider to the annual Post-
offico Appropriation bill, inserted by
the Senate last week on motion *>f
Senator Heed, by a vote of 55 to 11.
Although the appropriation bill will
go to conference because the House
disagreed to other Senate amend-
ments, there is little possibility that
the prohibition amendment, concurred
in without change, will be altered.
