note of protest concerning Interference
witn American trade, there were several
developments m the general shipping sit
Tho United F tales asked Great Britain
for Information aa to how the letter's
statement early In November, that naval
stores, Including rosin, camphor and tur
pentine, would be regarded as non-contraband,
will be reconciled In actual prac
tice with the notification from the Bri
tish foreign office of a week ago, saying
these products now are absolute contra
band. Information is sought as to how
cargoes now en route are to be affected,
and whether resinous 'products are in
oluded In the classification.
Mast Reek It Here.
The Italian ambassador Informed the
State department that while statistics
would make It appear that extraordinary
amounts of copper shipped from the
United States to Italy might be for un
neutral purposes, the fact of the matter
was that, as Germany needed Its own
copper, Italy could no longer Import
from tha countries Immediately to the
north of It, but must seek the metal In
tha American markets.
Much gratification was manifested at
tho Bute department because of the re
lease by Great Britain of the oil tank
steamers Tlflls nnd Naragansetta and the
freighter George R, Hawley, which' had
been held all Falmouth slnoa November
"Tho case bf the Brlndllla. originally
aetainea at iialllax and rearrested on
Its return journey from Egypt and taken

to produce complications.
Precedent Mar Bo Set.
Should tha question of change of regie
try be raised, a precedent mar be aet,
for while Great Britain has recognised
the transfers when of a bona fide Ma
ture, the attitude of Franco has never
been explicitly declared.
The communication which tha State
department aeat concerning the naval
stores Is said to bo tha flret protest on
speclflo article listed by Oreat Britain
as absolute contraband. In tha American
note of protest It was stated that, while
the United States objected to some of the,
classifications made, tho discussion of
them would bo reserved until another
Naval Stereo Protect.
The protest concerning naval stores waa
communicated today to the governors and
senators of several southern states. Rosin
and turpentine had been Intended for bal
last with cotton cargoes and the British
government la on record as stating that
cargoes so made up would not be regarded
a contraband. The Stab department had
no sooner sent notification to this effect
to shippers than the British foreign of
fice published Its new list.
Although this phase of the situation
was not speclflcal'y mentioned In the
recent American note. It waa generally
understood to have been contributory for
the dispatch of the document.

that American shippers conceal copper
and contraband articles In cotton and

The origin of the fire In North Phila

spread that one of the fire engines which

discussed the status of the Colombian and

would write Immediately to former

desired to be heard by the committee as
to the Colombian treuty which provides
for the payment of SS.OOO.OOO to Colombia
for canal sone property. When the

protested sgalnst Its ratification, until he '

the opportunity would be provided.
