CrVTL WAR ' PRECEDENTS CITED
LONDON, July 2. The new
British note to the United fitates in
tbe course of preparation will be aa
amplification of the original Amer
ican contraband note which arrived
in Washington, Monday. It will take
up questions which have arisen
since tbe first note was drafted.
Rlarht t Blockade fteatral Pert.
WASHINGTON. July Defense of
the right of a belligerent to blockade a
neutral port through which an enemy la
receiving supplies er attempting to mar
ket Its own products Is the chief argu
ment to be made In the supplemental
note Great Britain la preparing in reply
to the American protest against the en
forcement of the ordere-ln-eounell. Ths
original note received last Monday has
been withheld from publication at the re
queet of Blr Edward Orey, British for
sign minister, pending the arrival of the
supplemental communication which is
expected within a week.
All other Issues than that of the
blockade of neutral ports, it la learned,
will be regarded by the British govern
ment as subsidiary and proper for later
discussion. Upon recognition by neutral
governments of the principle from the
British viewpoint depends the ability of
a belligerent, which has otherwise estab
lished control of the seas, to profit by
the enormous expenditure and sacrifice
hlch made possible the control. The
matter Is all-Important In the British
Two Developments Taken Vp.
Two dsvelopments not discussed In the
original note will be taken up In the sup
plemental communication. ' One la the
American caveat of July ' 17 conveying
the notification that the United States
government would not recognise orderg-ln-oouncn
aa a- substitute for the pro
visions of International law.
The second point arose In connection
with the enforced unloading on the Lon
don docks of the cargo of the American
steamer Nsches. June U. The ship was
en route from Rotterdam to New Tork
with a cargo of non-contraband, mostly
of German and Belgian origin. It In
cluded several thousand prayer books,
rabbit skins, drugs and even some cotton.
The British government asserted the
right under Its blockade of Germany and
that part of Belgium at present under
German control to prevent any goods
from being exported, the sale of whloh
might aid the enemy financially
Becauae the principal British argu
ment Is directed to that phase of the
right of blockade which affects goods
sought to be Introduced Into an enemy's
country. It Is believed that the British
foreign office felt It necessary to supple
ment the original note by an argument
extending the claim to cover the case
or goods exported from the enemy coun
try through a neutral port.
Civil War Preeedeata.
Civil war precedents In resrard to h.
right of blockade forma the chief baals
or the Biitlah argument, attention being
especially called to the famous "Spring
bok" case before the United Rt..
preme court developing the "continuous
voyage" theory. Though this doctrine,
which, It la asserted, Justifies a belli
gerent In blockading a neutral port, was
strongly resisted by European nations,
the fact that it waa finally aoceoted In
Its entirety by the Alabama claim.
arbitration was sufficient to make It an
enduring principle f International law,
aocordlng to the British view. There
fore the order-tn-councll, which la be
lieved by Brlttah officials to be entirely
In accord with that theory wlU be applied,
although with due deference to the pro
tection of legitimate neutral trade.
Incidentally It la contended by Great
Britain In Its communication that the
execution of these ordersln-eouncll so
far has not resulted In any damage to
American trade. According to . the
British view that trade has waxed enor
mously large since the beginning of the
war, American treasury figures showing

nounces he Intercepted an alleged
conspiracy among paving contractors
to boost tbe price of brick block used
for paving purposes. The use of thlg
material in this city has increased
n.uch during the last few years.
"X learned of this alleged combination
through an Informant In Des Moines. 1
called the brick paving contractors Into
my office and told them what I would
do If their bide confirmed the reports
received by me. While my Information
on the subject wss not exactly aporlflc.
It was of sufficient Importance to war

A large bunch of paving bids opened
by the city council this week snd now
being tabulated by the engineering de
partment shows that the bids on brick
were reasonable, aocordlng to a state
ment by Knglneer Townscnd. These bids
were for a vast amount of paving and
repaying work and caused unusual Inter
est among contractors.
The particular feature of the bids was
