SPECIAL SESSION DISCUSSES;

Convening; Crairni,
Wariiinoton, July 26. A special scs-
slon of Congress In October to consider
among other tilings the question of na
tional defence Is being discussed by the
Administration adviser. So far as
can be learnod the President ha not
reached any conclusion In the matter.
The Impression has prevailed here for
some lime, however, that a special pen
sion would be held In the fall to puss
laws IncreashiK the revenues of the Gov
ernment Treasury conditions point to
tho necessity of such legislation.
If a special session Is held Congress
probably will bo asked also to give con
sideration to plans for national pre
paredness. It In hnown that the reports
of Secretary Garrison and Secretary
Daniels will be ready for the ronsldera
lion of the PresHcnt soon after his re
turn to Washington.

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,

Should the prize court rultncs bn

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. The

Inquiries were made In regard to ttie
possibility of getting her cargo Into Hus-

A diamond lavalllero valued at $12,000

and yesterday afternoon Herman Llnde
man. 31, of 236 West Thirty-ninth Htreet

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
