BRITAIN REITERATES CONTEN TION IN REPLY TO U. S. OFFER METHODS OF BELIEF Some American Names Already Re moved From Blacklist. Further Diplomatic Discussion Likely. Washington. Great Britain's note in reply to Amorlcnn representations against tho .commercial black list has beon received, and It is undorstaod to relterato tho contention for tho right to black list, but offers mothods of relief to Amorlcans in certnln cir cumstances. Tho British note la In reply to tho American noto of July 28, which de nounced 'the blnckllst ns "an arbitrary Interference .with neutral trade" and "Inconsistent with truo Justlco, sin- cero amity and Impartial falrnesB which should characterize tho deal ings with friendly governments with ono another." The names of some American firms already havo been taken from tho blacklist and tho noto is. understood to afford means of removing others. Tho British note is understood to take the lino of argument it is un precedented for a neutral to claim that a belligerent should In effect compel Its subjects to trade with tho enemy, and that It violates no law for the British government to pro- vent its subjects from doing so. Whllo tho British government ad mits tho rights of all persons in neutral countries to ongago in legiti mate commercial transactions, it ar gues that such a right does not limit tho right of other governments to re strict tho activities of their own na tionals.

Previously Great Britain and tho United States havo ngreed that domicile vwas decisive regardless of nationality. Tho continental Euro pean position has been that national ity was decisive. In tho previous ne gotiations over the blnck list Great Britain took a position between tho two theories. Tho subject probably will bo car ried on in further diplomatic corre spondence.
