want hats of quiet style and assured quality that will be suitable and correct for
The price of these hats show a reasonable profit, and it is this reasonable

portant proposals and they may be ex
pected to work in accord, with tho
probablo support of France. There are
wide differences of opinion between
these powers and tho other six coun
tries represented. Great Britain stands I
alone in supporting the rights of ci
belligerent to search neutral mer
chantmen proceeding to an enemy's
port under tho escort ot a warship fly
ing the same flag. She claims tho
right ot search under all circum
stances, while tho othor powers con
tend that tho guaranty of a neutral
power should be sufficient to protect
its vessels from molestation. It is
probable, however, that Great Britain
will concede this in return for some
point she considers moro essential.
Great Britain Is desirous of abolish
ing contraband entirely; America and
Japan do not go so far, but they would
agree if only munitions of war should
bo declared contraband.
Tho continental powers will urge tho
continuation of tho proscnt system
under which tho belligerents declaro
