The New York office of the Cunard Line up to a late hour last night had received no information concerning the reported loss of the Campania. It was explained that the company ?lid not ex? pect to hear anything concerning her. a she had entirely passed out of its hands. The former flyer, now twentjr-twe years old. was assigned to the BCTSf heap when the newest ( unarder A|iu tania came out last year.

Failure on the part of the I nited States government to make the pro? test might be construed, it ir held, as acceptance of the validity of the GOT? [ man declaration. This fart would hamper the prosecution of claims made in the futuie on the ground that the international rule? of naval warfare, as laid down and agreed to by the maritime powers from time to time, had been violated. The German declaration is construed i here a? a blockade. As such it 19 held , to be in violation of the Ileclaiation of Paris of lh?'', the most important set of rules agreed to by the nations 1 of Kurope upon the subject of bel I ligerent and neutral rights. There are also certain provisions in Article XIII I Of the Hague ?.onvention of 1907 with which it is deciared to be .11 lonttict. Status of Submarines I ndehned. There are two other aspect4 ef the question, howe\er, which fall what outside of the realm of interna? tional law. One is that the German government is apparently prepared to brush aside the reeugnued rule? of naval warfare by the creation of a somewhat novel situation. The other is the lack ot international agreement? concerning the activities of aub I marines. In the deliberation? of international bodies up to the pre?enf 'rue ? sibilities of the BUbflBUriM hs* e not teen taken info consideration, ind 8? n consequence a blockade bj -'ih"a linea might be held to differ 'i soma respects from a blockade main! by ordinary vessels of International reguli.'ion o' the con? duct of naval warfare ha* SOl BOOa developed to the same point m? the legulation of war on land.
