Action Intended to Clear Up Situa

Points In Protest Against Britain.
London, Jan. 2, Cutting short his
vacation as a result of tho American
protest against British interference
with United States commerco, Sir
Edward Grey, foreign secretary, re
turned unexpectedly to London on
Wednesday and hastened to his ofuco
lu Downing street
There he conferred at length with
Viscount Haldanowho had been act
ing as head of tho foreign offico, and
later consulted with Premier Asqulth.
As a result of tho second conferenco
the entire cabinet was summoned to
discuss tho protest from the United
It is understood that the American
ambassador will bo invited by Sir
Edward to discuss tho whole question
with him very soon.
Officials of tho British foreign of
fice aro closely studying the Amerlcnn
noto of protest against tho treatment
given to American commerce during
tho war, nnd tho indications aro that
a reply will be mado ns soon as nos-
slblo. Members of tho diplomatic
corps scout tho Idea expressed in
somo quarters that tho matter will
lead to friction between tho United
Stntes and England.
Tho foreign office has accepted tho
protest as a friendly action Intended
to clear up a situation that might have
become serious had it been allowed to
continue without a clear understand
ing. Even tho statement of Presi
dent Wilson that compensation will
bo asked because of the damage done
to American commerco has failed to
roil tho British press, which is usually
quick to take offense.
Washington, Jan. 2. Tho general
points of tho protest sent to Great
Britain by tho United States govern
ment aro as follows:
1. American cargoes havo been
searched on tho high seas a belliger
ent right that is not denied but the
ships also havo been diverted to ports
for further examination, a circum
stance hold not justified under inter
national law unless full proof of hos
tllo destination is presented at the
2. Great Britain has regarded abso
lute and conditional contraband ns in
tbo samo class, Tho general under
standing in international law has been
that absolute contraband includes
thoso articles which are intended for
use by a belligerent forco and directly
destined to it. Conditional contra
band, Including foodstuffs, comprises
tho articles which nro susceptible of
use by an army or navy, but it must be
proven that, instead of being Intended
for tho civil population of a country,
these products are destined for use by
Its army and navy.
3. Irrespective of the controversy
over what constitutes aboluto or condi
tional contraband in tho commerco be
tween n neutral and a belligerent
country, the noto sets forth that In re
spect to commerce between two neu
tral countries mere ougnt to bo no
question of contraband at all, for the
relations aro those of peace and not of
war. Since tho Civil war the United
Stntes has upheld tho doctrine of "con
tinuous voyage," which pormltted
Boizure of a cargo oven in Its Journey
between neutral porta, provided even
tually it was destined for a belllgorent.
The Ariiorlcan noto, however, takeB
the position that proof of such hostile
destination must be shown at tima of

tends that a consignment sent to no
