Canadian Government Agent
Says He Refuses to Believe Subma-
rines Will Commit Overt Acts
Against American Lives
Washington, Feb. 3.—President Wil-
son this afternoon addressed a joint
session of congress, outlining the
events that led up to the diplomatic
break with Germany. He said:
"To the congress. February 3, 1917.
Gentlemen of the Congress:
"The Imperial German government
on the 31st of January announced to
this government and to the govern
ments of the other neutral nntlons
that on and after the 1st day of Febru-
ar.v, the present month, It would adopt
a policy with regard to the use of
submarines against all shipping seek-
ing to pass through certain designated
■reas of the high seas to which It Is
clenrly my duty to call your mention,
Let me remind the congress that
on the 18th of April last, in view of
the sinking on the 24th of March of
the cross Channel passenger steamer
Sussex by a German submarine, with-
out summons or warning, and the con-
sequent loss of the lives of several
citizens of the United States, who
were passengers aboard her, this gov-
ernment addressed a no*e to the Im-
perial German government In which it
made the following declarations:
'If It still be the purpose of the Im-
perial government to prosjc te relent-
less and Indiscriminate warfare
against vessels of commerce by the
use of submarines without regard to
what the government of the United
States must consider the sacred and
indisputable rules of International law
and the universally recognized dic-
tates of humanity, the government of
the United States is at last forced to
the conclusion that there Is but one
course It can pursue. Unless the im-
perial government should now and Im-
mediately declare and effect an aban-
donment of Its present methods of
submarine warfare against passenger
and freight carrying vessels, the gov-
ernment of the United States can have
no choice but to sever diplomatic re-
lations with the German empire alto-
Recalls Assurances Given
"In reply to this declaration the Im-
perial German government gave this
government the following assurance:
" 'The Germnn government is pre-
pared to do Its utmost to confine the
operations of the war for the rest of
Its duration to the fighting forces of
the belligerents, thereby also assuring
the freedom of the seas, a principle
upon which the German government
believes, now as before, to be in agree-
ment with the government of the
" 'The German government, guided
by this idea, notifies the government
of the United States that the German
naval forces have received the follow-
ing orders: In accordance with the
general principles of visit and search
and destruction of merchant vessels
recognized by International law, such
vessels, both within and without the
area declared as naval war zone,
declared as naval war rone, shall not
he sunk without warning and without
saving human lives, unless these ships
attempt to escape or offer resistance.
" "Hut,' it added, 'neutrals cannot
expect that Germany, forced to fight
for her existence, shnll, for the sake of
neutral Interests, restrict the use of au
effective weapon If her enemy is per-
mitted to continue to apply at will
methods of warfare violating the rules
of International law. Such a demand
would be Incompatible with the char-
acter of neutrality, and the German
government Is convinced that the gov-
ernment of the United States does not
think of making such a demand,
knowing that the government of the
United States has repeatedly declared
that it is determined to restore the
principle of the freedom of the seas,
from whatever quarter it has been vio-
might appear to be susceptible of that
construction. In order, however, to
avoid any possible misunderstanding,
the government of the Umted States
notifies the imperial government that
It cannot for a moment entertain,
much less discuss, a suggestion that
respect by German naval authorities
for the rights of citizens of the United
States upon the high seas should In
any way In the slightest degree be
made contingent upon the conduct of
any other government affecting the
rights of neutrals and noncombatants.
Responsibility In such matters Is
single, not Joint; absolute, not rela-
"To this note of the eighth of May
the Imperial Gerjpan government made
no reply. On the thirty-first of Janu-
ary, the Wednesday of the present
week, the German ambassador handed
to the secretary of state, along with a
formal note, a memorandum which
contains the following statements:
"'The Imperial government, there-
fore, does not doubt that the govern-
ment of the United States will under-
stand the situation thus forced upon'
Germany by th6 entente allies' brutal
methods of war and by their determina-
tion to destroy the central powers, and
that the government of the United
states will further realize that the
now openly disclosed Intentions of the
entente allies give back to Germany
the freedom of action which she re-
served In her note addressed to the
government of the United States on
May 4, 1910.
" 'Under these circumstances Ger-
mans will meet the Illegal measures
of her enemies by forcibly preventing
after February 1, 1917, In a zone
around Great Britain, France, Italy
and In the eastern Mediterranean all
navigation, that of neutrals Included,
from a-'d to England and from and to
France, etc., etc. All ships met within
the zone will be sunk.'
No Alternative Consistent
With Country's Honor.
"I think that you will agree with me
that, In view of this declaration, which
suddenly and without prior Intimation
of any kind deliberately withdraws
the solemn assurance given In the Im-
perial government's note of the fourth
of May, 1910, this government has no
alternative consistent with the dignity
and honor of the United States, but to
take the course which. In Its note of
the eighteenth of April, 1916, it an-
nounced that it would take in the
event that the German government did
not declare and effect an abandonment
of the methods of submarine warfare
which It was then employing and to
which it now purposes again to re-
"I have, therefore, directed the sec-
retary of state to announce to his ex-
cellency the German ambassador that
all diplomatic relations between the
United States and the German empire
are severed and that the American am-
bassador at Berlin will be immediately
withdrawn, and In accordance with
this decision to hand to his excellency
Cannot Believe Germany
Will Carry Out Threats.
"Notwithstanding this unexpected
nction of the German government,
this sudden and deeply deplored re-
nunciation of its assurances, given
this government at one of the most
critical moments of tension In the re-
lations of the two governments, I re-
fuse to believe that It Is the Intention
of the German authorities to do in
fact what they have warned us they
will feel at liberty to do. I cannot
bring myself to believe that they will
Indeed pay no regard to the ancient
friendship between their people and
our own or to the solemn obligations
which have been exchanged between
them and destroy American ships and
take the lives of American citizens
in the willful prosecution of the ruth-
less naval program they have an-
nounced their intention to adopt. Only
actual overt acts on their part can
make me believe It even now.
"If this inveterate confidence on my
part in the sobriety and prudent fore-
sight of their purpose should unhappily
prove unfounded; if American ships
and American lives should in fact be
sacrificed by their naval commanders
In heedless eontrnventiou of the Just
and reasonable understandings of in-
ternational law and the obvious dic-
tates of humanity. I shall take the lib-
erty of coming again before the con-
gress, to ask that authority be given
me to use any means that may be nec-
essary for protection of our seamen
and our people In the prosecution of
their peaceful and legitimate errands
on the high seas. I can do nothing
less. I take It for granted that all
neutral governments will take the same
