Wasiiinoton, July ?0 After a delay of nearly four month the llrltlsh Gov ernment has answered the protest of the United States against certain fea tures of the British blockade of Ger many. In a note received at the Stale Department to-day tho I-ondon Foreign Office contends: That Great Itrltnln'a acts ore con sistent with the principles of inter national law, for which thu United States Is contending. That these principles have merely been given a new application to tiult chinged conditions on tho seas and the geographical situation respecting; Germany. That precedent for the acts under the orders In council to wntcn me United States has taken exception Is found In the record of the United States Government ltelf during the civil war and sustained by decisions of the Supreme Court of tho United States, which decisions were accepted by Great Britain. That If American citizens feel that they have been deprived of their rights In the llrltlsh woertimcut's Inter ference lth trjde they have, tlrst, the prize couits In hMi to present their cases.

Should the prize court rultncs bn utisatut.ictory the llrltlsh Privy Council or Supreme Court may be In voked, and finally the diplomatic sup port of the United States Government may bn employed through which an adjustment might he urranged In ac cord with the existing treaties be tween the two Governments. As understood here the British note concedes nothing to tho American pio teats and Is entirely a defence of the llrltlsh position. The llrltlsh note Is In reply to the American note of March 3n, In which the attitude of the United States toward certain acts supposedly contemplated under the then recently passed ordrs In council was fully set forth.

Aliens Heject Flair Appenl, Sheriff Klnkead's success In persuad ing the 1,500 men to go back to work to-morrow resulted from his failure cur lier In the afternoon to persuade nearly twice that number to do so. At a crowded meeting In Mydosh Hall tho Sherlft'H rather dramatic appeal, aided by dls-J play of u big American tlag, brought only a vociferous nnd emphatic "No" from tho strikers, most of whom wero Poles. Those who will return to work, however, uie almost without exception American cHIzc'iih, the better paid em ployees, who wero locked out when the plautH shut down. At this meeting the Sheriff asked that all who wero willing to return to work to see him itt 8 o'clock at police head quarters. At 8 o'clock nearly a thou sand npepared nnd said they would bo ready to work to-morrow If ho would protect them. ThlH ho promised to do, and repented the promise to a latge crowd In front of tho building. The belief was freely expressed In Hayonne to. night that perlups .ne moat serious trouble since the ttrlk.; begin will be met when Sheriff Kinkead tries to escort the LSOO i, -inning workmen to the plant to-morrow mainliig with his deputies, whom the strlhei's dislike ua much an the company's guarus.
