That such "proof" exists is official ly disclosed in a brief filed before the commission on behalf of the American government, by the American agent, Hubert W. Honynge, represent ing the state department, who calls attention to '"exhibits in the form of evidence submitted in basic Lusitanla claim cases to show that the German imperial government itself deliberately planned and ordered the torpedoing of the Lusitanla tiy one of its U- boat commanders."

The "exhibits," declares the American agent brief, show that the former imperial German government had, in an official way, turned over in Its mind the project of sinking the Lusitanla or some big British liner, manifestly with the purpose of terrifying British shipping, and thereby interfering with commerce and communication between the United States and the enemies of Germany. The warning which emanated from the German embassy was signed by to the United the then ambassador States from Germany (Count von Hernstorff, and as published in New York papers on the morning of May 1, llll.l, bore date of April 13, 1915. This date, as a matter of fact, was nine days before the Lusitanla even got Into port, and two weeks before she loaded for sailing. "Germany as the incontrovertible proof In the Lusitanla case shows. knew that she was going to sink the Lusitanla, and that without warning, and Germany must have known that when a torepdo, or torpedoes, were fired Into the Lusitanla all sorts of injuries snd losses to nationals of numerous countries would occur.

In reply to Senator Walsh's questions, Magee said Fall had told htm In 1920, that he was "completely broke."
