S. Danger Seen in Submarine Plan to Urcnk British Blockade. A NEW I! BOAT CAMPAIGN 'Government Taking No Of ficial Notice of the So-call- Menace. WAKiitNi.TON, July 12 Although of ficials here sharo the general admiration for Germnny'a latest submarine exploit, there I a note of keen resentment at the State Department over Germany's threat to resume submarine warfare, which .nines simultaneously with tho arrival of tho Deutschland. Coupled with the news from llerlln, the undersea boat's transatlantic jvoyage. In tho opinion of soino otllclals, assumes the gulso of a distinct threat. It Implies, according to these officials, that German I boats can escape the cordon of the llritlsh blockade and opcr ate unhindered In the steamer routes of tho Atlantic. Some even regard It as a threat on the part of Germany to lnk steamers, If tho submarine warfaro Is resumed, within sight of American shore. No Official Not lee. Tho reports that Germany onteni plates resumption of her submarine cam- - pnlcn come unofhVIally through the press, but It Is realized here that the German official censors are authorizing the spreading of these reports. Other vvie they would not be permitted to be cabled The tliie.it to resume ubmaiiiia war- fare Is based on the anparcnt Inactivity of the United .States imVenltng with the llritlsh blockade. This feature Is re- garded as having It Inspiration In the press department of the Foreign Olllce In Wilhelmstrnsee. No otllclal notice I King taken of tho threats. Acting Secretary of State Polk ha noted them, but showed no signs of being swayed. In fact.
