Hoard Report Cited.
. In answer to the British contention
that conditions relating to the alee and
seaworthiness of modern carriers Justify
bringing vessels into port, there is cited
the report of a board of United States
naval experts. Just made, In which It Is
declared that it Is not necessary to re
move "every package of a ship's cargo"
to, establish the charaoter and nature of
its trade; thst the facilities for boarding
and Inspection of modern ships are, in
fact, greater than In former times, and
that to permit ships to be taken Into port
"would be a direct aid to ths belligerents
concerned In that It would release a bel
ligerent vessel overhauling the neutral
Irora its duty of search and set It free
for further belligerent operations.".
7, and I. These points deal with new
procedures In prise courts, the effect of
which, the United States complains, is
"to subjeot traders to risk of loss, delay
and expense so great and so burdensome
aa to practically destroy much of the
export trade of the United States to
neutral countries of Europe
Qsesttosi of Proof.
10, 11. These discussed questions of the
burden of the proof as to non-contraband
of goods consigned "to order." the
Vnlted Btate arguing that nons of the
eases cited by Oreat Britain proves that
ths burden of proof can rightly be mads
to rest upon the claimants.
11 Ths greatly Increased Imports of
neutral oountrles adjoining Great Brit
ain's enemies "cannot be accepted as
laying down a Just or legal rule of evlj
dence" that commodities are destined tot
re-exportation to ths belligerents. Such a
rule, It Is argued, "offers loo great oppor
tunity for abuse by the belligerents" and
la opposed "to those fundamental prln
rlples of Justice which are the foundation
of the Jurisprudence of the United States
and Great Britain."
Adralaalnn by Britain.
IS. Attention Is directed to the fact that
Great Britain admits thst Its exports to
neutral countries have also materially in
creased since the present war began.
"Thus Great Britain." says ths note,
"concernedly shares in creating a condi
tion which is relied upon as sufficient
ground to Justify the interception of
American goods destined to neutral Euro
pean ports. If British exports to those
ports should be still further Increased it
la obvious that, under the rule of evi
dence contended for by the British gov
ernment, the presumption of enemy des
tination could he applied to a greater
number of Amer!rn cargoes, and Ameri
can trade would suffer to the extent that
British trad benefited by the Increase
Great Britain cannot expect the United
SUtes to submit to sich manifest Injus
tice or to permit the rights of Its cltlsens
to be so. Bartons! y Impaired."
' ' Maintains rai.t.
It Whatever may be the u,iutni.i
conclusions drawn from trade statistic,
the United Btate "maintains the right to
en gooaa into the general stock of a
neutral ountry. and denounces as Illegal
and unjustifiable any attempt of a bel-
i-gersnt 10 interfere with that right on
the ground that It suspect that the pre
vious supply of such goods In the neutral
country which the Imports renew or-replace
has been sold tO n gWMllff The
Is a matter with which the neutral vendor
nas no concern and which can In tin
affect the rights of trade. Moreover, even
11 gooaa imted a conditional contraband
are destined to an enemy country through
a neutral country, that fact la not In it
self sufficient to Justify their leisure."
Hae No Other Coarse.
IIV In View of these consideration tha
United States announces It has no other
course but 'to contest leisures of vessels
at sea upon conjectural suspicion and the
preouc or bringing them Into port for
purpose of search of obtaining evidence."
and adds that .'"relying- upon the regard of
me unuan government for the principles
of Justice so frequently and un'iormlv
niMuesioa prior to the present war. this
government ask that the Britlau govern
ment will Instruct Its officers to refrain
rrom these Illegal practices.'
Is. Directing particular attention in the
so-called "blockade measures" Imposed
by we order la council of March 11, the
isrSBan note of July St, last, la cited to
ooiuirra mo munuon IS establish a
blockade," after over six months apoii
cation of the blockade order, the note
aays. "the experience of American cltl
sens has convinced the government of
the United States that Ores Britain
has been unsuccessful In Its efforts to
distinguish between enemy and neutral
Hamwslsur to NeaUrmla.
IT. The practice of requiring a eonalgnor
to prove that his shipments are not
bound to aa enemy of Great Britain, even
If which articles are on the embargo list
of the neutral country to which they are
destined Is characterised as "harraaslng
to neutral traders."
IS. While the United State government
"was at first Inclined to view -with len
iency ths British measures, which were
termed in the correspondence, but not
In the Order In Council of March 1L "a
blockade . because of the assurances of
ths British government that Inconven
ience to neutral trade would be mini'
mixed by the discretion left to the courts
in the application of the Order la Coutv
ell and by ths instructions which It was
said would be Issued to ths administra
tive and , other authorities having to do
with ths sxecutlon of ths so-called 'block
aae- measures, this government Is now
forced to the realisation that Its expec
tation which were fully set forth in Its
note of March 10, were based on a mis
conception of the Intention of the Brit
Ish government. Desiring to avoid con
troversy and in ths expectation that the
administration of tbe Order in Council
would conform to the established rules
of international law, this government
has Until now reserved the question of ths
actual validity of ths Order In Com
ell of March 11, Insofar as It la con
sldcrod by the government of Great Brit'
sin to establish a blockade within the
meaning ft that term as understoood In
the law and practices of nations; but In
ths circumstances now developed It feels
that It can BO longer permit the validity
of the alleged blockade to remain ua
Oaeetto of Fast.
IS. Pointing out that In accordance with
the declaration of Hart In IK the effec
tiveness of a blockade Is "manlfeatly
question of fact," the United 8 late aays
It Is "common knowledge that the Ger
man coast ate open to trade with the
Scandinavian countries." The recent
placing ef eMton on the British list o
contraband is spoken of as making it ap
pear 'iihst tlie I:rliUh government lts.1
has been fnrcvd to the conclusion that
the' triorfciuie 1s J ineffective to pmveii
snipmeni or cotton from reaching it
enemies, or else thst It Is doubhtful ss to
the legality of the form of blockade which
It ha sought to maintain."
20. Derisions are cited to show that it
I an essentlsl principle, universally so
cepted. that a blockade must apply Im
partially to the ships of sll nations, and
It la added that "If belligerents them
selves trade with blockaded ports." the
principle In the past has ben tnat they
cannot be regarded aa effectually block
aded. These decision are referred ti
"since it Is a metter of coiii'ncm knowl
edge that Great Britain exports and re
exports large quantities of merchandise
to Norway, Hweden, Denmark and Hol
land, whose ports, so far as American
commerce la concerned. It regain ss
SI. Ths principles of ths law of nations
which forbid ths blockade of neutral
ports In time of war, embodied In that
part of the declaration of London adopted
by Oreat Britain as to the blockade, are
discussed and several decisions of the
British prise courts prior to the present
war, as well as the Mats moras cases In
the American civil war, are recalled to
support the contention of the United
21 Measured by "the three universally
conceded tests ths present British meas
ures cannot be regarded as constituting a
blockade, in law, In practice, or In ef
fect" its. Formal notice Is given that the
"blockade" which Oreat Britain olelmsto
have Instituted under the Order-ln-Counoil
ef March 11 cannot be recognised as a
legal blockade by the United States."
U. Ths British view of the famous
Springbok case, before the outbreak of
the present war, Is cited to support tne
American contentions. 4
Modes of Redress.
SS to SS Inclusively. These deal ex
haustively with the modes of Judicial
redress for cltlsens of neutral countries,
and reach certain general conclusions.
"The government of the United States."
the note says, "has viewed with surprise
and concern ths attempt of his majesty's
government to confer upon the British
frtss courts Jurisdiction by this Illegal ex
ercise of force In order that these courts
may apply to vessels and coj-goes of
neutral nationalities, seised on the high
sees, municipal lawa and orders which
can only rightfully be enforclble within
territorial waters of Oreat Britain or
egelnst vessel of British nationality
when on ths high seas. The
United States government feels that It
cannot reasonably be expected to advise
Its eltisens to seek redress before tribu
nals which are, in its opinion, unauthor
ised by ths unrestricted application of
International law to grant reparation, rfbr
to refrain from presenting their claims
directly to the British government
through diplomatic channele."

Discuss Probability of Bryan and
Roosevelt Joining Hands
SOME THINK IT POSSIBLE
(from a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. 7. Speclel. What
would be the outcome of the presiden
tial campaign in ltl If the Improbable
should come to pass and Theodore Roose
velt and William Jennings Bryan should
Join forces, one ss a candidate for presi
dent and the other as rice president on
the same ticket?
Tills was a question discussed by a
number of men Interested In the poli
tical situation in the lobby of ths Lin
dell hotel In Lincoln Saturday.
That la a condition which could never
come to pas,' 'said an influential demo
crat, who is opposing the grape 'juice
antics of his fellow democrat. Mr. Brfan.
'It is Impossible," said he, "Just because
neither Mr. Bryan or Mr. Roosevelt would
take second place on any ticket. Neither
one of them would take anything else
but the first place, and so there Is no
use to discuss that proposition."
Proposes to Wis,
"Well, I don't know aoout that." said
another democrat, living outside of the
state. "Mr. Bryan is getting pretty des
perate. He has cart his lot against the
president and when a man like Bryan
takes a stand of that kind. It simply
shows that he proposes to win his fight
if he busts his party In doing It. Mr.
Bryan has got to that point In his career,
where he must come out on top or he
wll be a dead duck, and If he could
make any political alllgnment which
would help him, I era of the opinion that
he would even go so far as to Join with
Mr. Roosevelt In aa effort to kill off
both the old parties. In fact It would
not snirpise me a bit If he should try
to pull off something of that kind."
"Well," said a republican, "you may
not be far out of the way. Still. I am
Inclined to believe that there will be
nothing like that I have always been
of the opinion that Mr. Bryan would
never consent to play second fiddle to
anybody, but the fact doee remain that!
he took a place In the president's cabinet
when all ths time he hss had an am
bition to be president. That he had an
object in taking a .subordinate position,
I believed at that time and I also be
ieve that It was his tntenUon at that
time to pull away from the president
when the opportunity became ripe. Mr.
Bryan does things Just at a time when
be can get the most and greatest public
ity. Publicity is food and dring to him,
and without it he would be the most
miserable man in the world. I believe
he ha lost out with his own party and
I really think he believe it and be
might if be thought he could get ths
assistance of Mr. Roosevelt pull off Just
such a thing. It would give him plbllc
Ity ef a new kind, and that la the kind
Where HI tea Weald Be.
"But the hitch in that kind of a pro
gram might come from Colonel Roose
velt." said a republican, who has always
been a follower of tbe colonel.
"I agree with you there," answered
the other, "but It must become evident
to Mr. Roosevelt that he can expect
nothing In the way of future success
from the progressive party. The receeint
elections should convince any man lot
that Mr. Rooaevelt can hardly be Ex
pected to go back to the repullcans, and
aa he, like Mr. Bryan, loves publicity and
appears to thrive on It he might for
the sake of defeating the party again,
which he was responsible for defeating
in BIS, line up with Mr. Bryan for no
other reason than to keep that party
from winning In 1914, which to me ap
pears to be a foregone conclusion under
present conditions. The progressive
party cannot hope to become much of
a factor In the 191 1 campaign and with
these two men apparently working for
the same object that of punishing mem
bers of their own party, even at a sacri
fice of defeat might Join hands to ac
complish that object in hopes that by
their united efforts they might be able
to win themselves."
Thinks It Possible.
"By cracky," exclaimed a man, who
had been standing by listening. "You
fellows may have been drinking a kind
of liquid refreshments that make you
t farther than I can, but there has
many stranger things happened in poll-
tics In the history of this country, and
I for one am willing to admit that you
have set me to thinking. What a sen
sation a tie-up between Bryan and Roose
velt would create. I don't like to think
about It for the more I do ths more it
look possible, whsn one takes everything
Into consideration and the t em pennant of
the two men."

In many years has Interest In Hamilton

county are without expressed opinions as
to ths guilt or lnnocenoe of Fred Luff,
who Is charged with ths assault of Nela
Luffs preliminary hearing takes place
before the county Judge next Wednesday,
and It seems probable that the court
room will be packed with Danes and
Swedes from Kronberg and Marquette.
Luff Is a Dane and Nelson is a Swede.
Miss Mary Peterson of Marquette will
probably be the principal witness for the
state. She la the young woman who was

She la reported to have told the officials
that Luff had made threats against Nel

When Luff was shot In ths back of the
