siderable discussion in England
since the announcement that Amer

ed in American ports, was raised
in the house of. commons today by
Ben Tilled, labor member for North
Salford. Mr. Tillet asked Andrew
Bonar Law, the government spokes
man, what steps the government was
taking" to "claim a share of enemy
.-.hipping in proportion to the losses
sustained by th.e United States of
vessels detained in American wat
ers." Mr. Bonar Law said he could
not. discuss the matter but hoped the
house would trut the British dele
gates to protect shipping interests.
Horatio Bottcmley. an indepndent
member, asked whether it was net
a convenient opportunity for Pres
ident Wilson "to prove the sincerity
of his idealism by making no claim
for these ships and giving them to
those who have borne the heat and
burden cf the war." There was no
answer from the government bench.
