tary commltteo on Wednesday tho

SENATOR SMITH ASKS U. 8. TO
LIFT EMBARGO ON COTTON
NOT CONTRABAND, HE SAYS
Senator From Georgia Asserts Non
combatants In Teutonic Nations
Should Be Supplied Calls Great
Britain's Sea Edict Illegal.
Washington. Jan. 22. Great Brit
ain's interference with neutral trado
was the subject of vigorous and ox
haustlvo speech In tho senato on
Thursday by Senator Hoke Smith of
Georgia, who pleaded for action to
prevent England from advancing her
own trado at the expense of the Uni
ted States while attempting to destroy
Germany commercially. He declared
the rights of citiiens of tho United
States and other neutral nations woro
being recklessly disregarded and em
phasized particularly what ho de
nounced as Great Britain's lawless
treatment of American cotton trado.
DUcussIng the action of the allies
in proclaiming cotton as a contraband,
tho senator asserted that cotton had
not been used or needed by Germany
or her allies in the manufacture of war
munitions for more than eight months.
Senator Smith reviewed the wholo
history of interference with trado
and diplomatic exchanges on the sub-
ect. He described as silly and untruo
statements that the United States
made cotton contraband during tho
Civil war, declaring that only onco be-
foro In history had cotton been de
clared contraband, and it was done
then during the Russo-Japanese war
by Russia, who promptly gavo way In
tho face of a protest from Great Brit
ain that the action was illegal. Brit
ish authorities were quoted also to
provo that under international law
foodstuffs are subject to seizure only
when actually consigned to tho armed
forces of an enemy.
"Shall we quietly continue to fur
nish Great Britain what she is com
pelled to obtain from tho United States
while tho commercial rights of citi
zens of this country are trampled un
derfoot?" asked the senator. "Great
Britain cannot continue the war with
out munitions from tho United States.
"Great Britain cannot accomplish
her 8chemo for world-wide domination
of commerce In her vast products of
cotton-manufactured fabrics without
cotton from tho United States.
'The administration has forcefully
brought to tho attention of Great Brit
ain tho rights of citizens of this coun
try. It has been demonstrated that
citizens of neutral countries havo tho
right to ship foodstuffs and cotton in
unlimited quantities through tho neu
tral ports of northern Europo to tho
noncombatant inhabitants of Germany
"Tho congress of the United States
slept over tho rights of shippers of
foodstuffs last winter. This was, per
haps, because tho prices wero good,
perhaps becauso wo did not Investi
gate tho subject. Tho lawlessness of
Great Britain has Increased greatly.
"By firmness, but peacefully, neu
trals can easily obtain their rights
from both belligerents."
