AMERICAN CONSUL
GIVES HIS MEWS
(Special To The Journal.)
Washington, Feb. 3.—Tonight the
United Slates is on the verge of entering the great world war, with a
historic precedent pressing the nation  forward.
Germany's latest move, in carrying out her war of frightfulness, has
caused the American States, to take
la decided stand and declare herself.
i She has banded the German Ambas-
! sador von Bernstorff his passports,
'• and has recoiled the United States
I Ambassador Gerard  from  Germany.
She also sent a note of warning to
Germany in connection with the submarine campaign. Notwithstanding
these facts, the Germans committed
their first overt act by sinking the
American steamer Housatonic, and
tonight the opinion is expressed that
a break is almost inevitable between
the two nations. Tlie National Guard
has been called out.

when   receiving   the   notification   of
the   severed   relations   between   ihe
American  States and  Germany,  hart
.little   to   say.     He   wept   real   tears
i when  Informed of the break in the
ji'elatlcns between the two countries.
"How am I going to gel  home?" he
iremarked.     His  personal   safety.   II

Demand Release Of Prisoners.
Washington, Feb. 3.—A demand
has ''een made Hy the officials here
for the immediate release ot all
United States prisoners held by German authorities. Sixty-four men
were taken from different ships captured by the raiders, and are being
held  as  prisoners of war.
The plain Inference from the rte-
mand Is Ihat the German Government has n-eated as 1 rlsoners of war
the members of crews of those cap-
lured vessels which were armed, A
complicated question is now raised.
as Americans are found to be included among the neutral seamen
held  as  prisoners of  war.
A guarantee of every protection
within their rights under International law. as it is construed by the
United Plates Government, whenever the issue is raised is now insisted upon by tlie Administration In
favor of the American members of
crews of merchant ships captured by
German raiders who have been taken
into neutral ports.
