RUTHLESS SEAl WAR, i I German Official Note TO SPAIN AND THE U.S.A. GRAVE CRISIS RAISED. i AMERICAN PRESS SAYS "MEANS WAR." The following Note, which Is ad- dressed to the Spanish Government, has also been sent to the American Ambassador at Washington. It is a document of the first importance:— (preÚ Association w-r Special.) MADRID. Wednesday (received Thursday). Th? following is the text of the Note frrhich Germany and Austria have addressed to Spain: Germany, Austria-Hungary, and their Allies, in view of the failure of their peace proposals, and of the fact that their enemies, ill rejecting the reconciliation which this demarche offered, have replied by announcing their intention to destroy them and carry on the war to the end in view of Great Britain a abuse of her sea power, whereby she seeks to red tice, the Central Empires by starvation, condemning them to bitter sacri- fices which endanger the vigour and force of their populations; and in view of the fact that Great Britain and her Allies do not respect the laws of humanity nor the interests of neutrals, whose commerce they limit and restrict in accordance with their intention to con- tinue the war with greater violence. The Central Empire have decided also to continue the war, using all the weapons at their disposal without regard for the bounds "which they had hitherto .set to the exer- cise of their sea power, and they hope that the Spanish people and the Government will not fail to recognise the reasons which liave led to this decision. Accordingly, the Central Empires will -ja.s*, as from February 1st, without If.p,i-- ther warning and by every mea-u*t, to inter- lupt sea traffic round Great Britain, France and Italy, as well as in the Eastern Medi- terranean, in certain specified prohibited areas, which will be published in the Official Gazette. At the same time they will allow neutral vessels at present in port in prohibited areais to leave before February 5th and the shortest route to reach free waters. The Central Powers have similarly made arrangements to grant an agreed period of immunity to neutral ships bound for ports in n prohibited area, if such vessels on Feb- ruary 1st are at no great distance from that area. 44 DECLARATION OF WAR. OMINOUS TONE OF AMERICAN PRESS. I NEW YORK, Thm-aday. Commenting on the German submarine ftltimatum, the "World" Sayg:-It is in effect < declaration of war against the United States. It proposes to murder peaceful Americans on tll e high seas. There Can only be one answer from the U.S. The German Ambassador jnust receive hie pasports forthwith. All diplomatic relations must cease at once. If this ineans war with Germany, so be it. The "Tribune" says it would be hard to exaggera te The ominous character of the German Note. Germany refuses any longer to recognise that the United States has any rights of the sea. 4 Peace that Germany would purchase was too dear a price if it baa to be purchased by f compliance with the Kaiser's latest in- gulfing instruction. j
