ALLIES TO DECLARE
inofficial Announcement is
MADE TO WASHINGTON.
Delay Due to Necessity of Arranging
Uniform Treatment by Ail
Washington, Aug. 16.?The allies'
intention to declare cotton contraband
has been communicated unofficially but
authoritatively to the state department.
The department's advices are
tf:at the decision had been reached
and the delay is due to the necessity of
arranging uniform treatment by all of
The step has been agreed upon by
Great Britain, Prance, Russia, Italy
and Belgium, but Japan's attitude has
not been defined and she may decide
that no action is called for from her
at this time becaus,e of the elimination
of the only German colony in the
Far East from the military problem
and the absence of any reason for a
Ever since the application of the
British orders in council to cotton,
amnnpr other American Droducts, the
entente allies fcave felt that some more
effective and less burdensome method
must be found for dealing with cotton
and preventing its entry into Germany
and Austria. The allies contend that
American shippers, in many cases, alleged
to be backed by German capital,
have been shipping cotton to Germany
through neutral ports.
Orders Not Effective.
Under tfte orders in council such a
cargo, if captured, merely was taken j
into a British port and paid for by the
British government. The allies contend
that under these conditions a
great deal of the cotton got through
Sweden, Denmark and Holland into
Germany. Prom tf-e allies' point of
ilew the orders in council were ineffective
because they obliged the Brit

According to the advices reaching
Washington, tf:e pressure in (England
and France has compelled a change.
Tire British government originally regarded
cotton as non-contraband and
expressed a desire to avoid inflicting
hardship upon Southern planters and
to avoid development of anti-British

ieenng in ims fuuuuj.
The change to contraband will be
defended as authorized by international
law. Great Britain protested against
the American blockade of outgoing
cotton from t&e South during the War
of Secession, and had refused to recognize
it as contraband during the
Russo-Japanese war, hut will not contend
that radical changes in the conditions
of warfare since that time justify
a change in attitude.
XiAjjcui ac juiaiai,
The entente powers, according to
advices here, expect t?at the state department
will resist making cotton
contraband and are preparing to base
their action on American precedents.
The advices reaching here indicate
they intend to argue that both Presidents
Lincoln and Johnson, in formal
proclamations issued in April, iM'ay
and June, 1865, went on record as
maintaining as contraband of war "ma
terials for t?e fabrication of ammunition."
That cotton has taken the place of
saltpetre, always recognized as absolute
contraband, in the manufacture
of gunpowder, will be held to be an
establishing fact. By way of convincing
the state department to that effect,
attention probably will be directed
to a letter by Secretary Hay to W.
"W. Rockhill, Amtrican minister to
CMna, during the Russo-Japanese war,
stating that the American ordnance

It is expected that some sort of an
arrangement will be proposed by
which the allies will engage to allow
cotton to travel unmolested to neutral
countries in quantities in proportion
