PROTEST TO TAKE TIME
Washington, Dec. 31. Many weeks
and probably months will be consum
ed in discussions between the United
States and Great Britain over this
government's shipping protest. Im
mediate settlement of all questions
raised is not expected. This' was
stated today upon high official au

not expect immediately more than
partial concessions by Great Britain.

fidently expected by this nation is

arresting American vessels and con

The admiralty has prepared for the"
foreign office a complete report of
the operations of all ships which
have held up or diverted into port
vessels carrying goods from the
United States. In every instance

ular manifests and of contraband are
cited, and it is expected this docu
men will prove a very essential factor
in completing the answer of Britain
to Pres. Wilson's demands.
