Jan. 2. The State Pepart ment to-day cabled to Ambassaeior Clioato to demand from the British Foreign Offleo "a declaration of polioy and a concession of liability," relative to the seizure of Amer Jem Hour by British cruisers near Delagoa Bay. It is the first vigorous step this Gov ernment has taken In the matter, and the State. Department oliiiials bclievo the mat ter will he closed up within a week. It Is not seen here how Gr.Mt Britain can evado tho Issue that has been raised. The State Department, -it dm of the opin ion that the matter was of slight import ance, began communication with London nnd Soti'h Africa by mall. Last Thursday, Sherburne G. Hopkins of Hopkins .t Hop kins, counsel for Tlint. IMdy & Co.. the shippers of tho flour called at the Stato JJcpartment and. sufcmltled a hrlef and orsl argument. All the shippers of this country are behind Flint. Kddy & Co, and iefue to export any more Roods to Bast Africa until Great Britain declares her roliey. The tate Department agreed with Mr. Hop-it-n's representation."', and cabled Mr. C'l'n.te. Tie ljttr replied to-day and received tho Furplememal Instructions described to de mand from Great Britain a declaration of riMii y as to foodstuffs consigned to neutral rrehrnts In neutral territory. Tho United states make tvio distinct points: IVst A neutral port cannot be blockaded. kd-Great Britain's hlocksdo of Delagoa. Stay is unwarranted ami contrarj- to tho iaw- of cations. Second Flour, c'n and meal -were not rertraband of war unless addressed to the camp of the enemy. It can even be sent into the territory of the enemy to mer chants. It certainly cannot 1-e stopped when consigned to a neutral port to neutral merchants. Mr Hopkins called th State Depart ment's attention to tho decision of '.he Chief Tustlco of Eng'and on this eubject. to which that Jurist held to the very conten tion tho United States are now making. 3Ie also showed Flint, Uddy & Co.'a ship ping list for the i-"' "'rhfn montnj, ,-jV me that the Intercepted shipments ar reg ular a.d normal and can have no possible connection with the Transvaal. There wcro no recruits on board. There vra3 not a package addressed to any cno In tho Transvaal. Great Britain has thus far failed to state the sround on which the cargoes were Intercepted and forced ashore at Etst Lon don Instead of Lort-r 10 Marques. Tha ships are held at Bast London and the cargoes nro In warcnouses In British possession If the expected declaration of policy anj concession of liability are forthcoming they 1H mean that Great Britain will publicly subscribe to a doctrine all nations hold and that Great Britain has enumerated in the rast, namely, that flour, corn and meal aro not contratand unless on their way to the enemy's camp or accredited agents, and that Great Britain will pay for the goods hclzed and damages for their ceteutlon anil possible eJeterioratiin. As a general proposition, it is considered that for England to declare foodstuffs to be contraband of war under any circum Mances would be a dangerous action. Inas much as Britain herself relies upon the out Fldc w orld for about twv-thlrds of her pro visions. It was semiofficially reported on last Sun day that Germany had taken action prole nbly somewhat i.lrnllar to that now taken Jay tho United States In the case of the seizure of the German Imperial mall steam er Bundesrath. IIIlltLl.V IltHIT.lTIin. Berlin. Jan. 2.-The Press continues to discuss the capture of the Bundesrath with tome show of Irritation. In a smiofflcla! jsoto the Post temarkg that In consequence of the seizure Germany has taken steps and Great Britain is expected to deal with the m-iltcr In a "spirit of good oliicia! re lations." "There Is every reason to believe the In cident will speedily be closed. ' Officials circles consider it imperative that Great Britain adopt some definite attitude regarding tho whoio question of contrabard Ht war, and are surprised she has not rfdopted a firmer policy on the subject irom mc beginning.

NO IMMEDIATE DANGER. Views of Doctor StarklolT and Itoh crt K. McMatli. Health Commissioner htarkloff, when asked his opinion of tho action of the Canal Trustees in turning in tho wattr, suki: "Of all the seasons of the year in which such J. step could have been taken this Is the wo'.-tt. TV water of tho I1H . .liV.i pA .! ruJaaver, and tho Mississippi is. limlj to 'ie at any time. As a r null, all the filth dumped Into the canal from Chicago will come to us in practical ly the same condition in which it lft that city The Ice will prevtnt the f scape of gassis gfnerated by It. anC so it will reach our waterworks In about tne same condi tion as If it had passed through a great sewer, traversing the entlto distance from Chicago to St. Louis. Another fact that make thN a most unfnunato time of the year for the open ing of the canal. Is that at this time lho wat-r in our rivers: Is at Its lowest stage. Consequently tho dilution must be less and tho !ahrTT correspondingly greater to the health of our clty "I feel certain that the polluted water will aus.. a great deal of Uphold fever, end li will entail much additional work on the li- ilth leparlmnt at a time when the city ts lem-t p pared t meet the esira -x-Dfiiso that the extra work will cause. There if. no need for immediate alarm on the I art of the citizens. In the ordinary course the filth started toward us jesterday canno: reach St. Louis in less thu'i two weeks, and by that tlnw we expect to have carefully consld-jre.1 what Is best to be done undtr the circumstances and veil! in due time udvlse all of the result of our de liberations." Bobert 12. McMath. president of the Board of l'ublic Improvements, was seen at his home. No. 7 V. lnd. rmere place. "1 am not alarmed ytt." he paid, "though I must admit that the canal ipiestlon has assumed a very threatening attitude. I am inclined to think this action in Chicago in only h grandstand play, a sort of New Year's celebia'lon to remind the Chicago uubiic that the Canal Commission is still extant. You know those pioide up there are always doing something startling, and this exhibition is only made to itvivu interest in lho canal Iniquity. "If it be a fact that the wate- of the Chicago Bivr, with the sewerage of Chi cago, i:, about to be ttirn-d on us. laden with disiase and dtath, it is now time to ln'.oke the aid of the courts to prevent it if possible. -I suppose such procoelings will be instituted at once by spetial counsel em ployed in Chicago to lepresuit St. Louis, as the exiget cles require. "I do not fear that the canal will be legally in operation for many ais jet. The act of the Illinois Legislature under which the canal was permit ted.requlres mat the canal shall dlschurge t").CJ cubic fef of water per minute. I believe this Is an irnix,.-.-!-bllity Such a volume of water cannot be secured nnd maintained from the Chicago Blver. If It Is not. any iltizen, coriwra- tion or municipal city or Illinois has the right to petition the cour s and compel the canal autlicrllhs iitlur to comply with the law or discontinue its use "I know Mr. Fitzgerald, the rnginT r charged with the duty of repor'lng to the State authorities w hether the law- has been complied with, and 1 know him to lie a man ho will report the fai ts and nothing else. Before a favorable teport will be receded fr-im him. UUUOiO tuble feet of watr will have to pass out of the einaj per minute. and, as I believe, that can nevr he wur ed I do not entertain any fear thm it will le legally ojerated. "However, we shall see In a short time now whether the turning in of the water vesterdaj- was for show or whether 1: really marks the opening of the cinat. Thert Is no occasion for alarm, as the filth Udcn water tinder the most advantacenu rircutnstatios could not reach here in le than two weeks. In the meantime some Judicial action will prohabiv be taken to prevent, ttmporaiily at least, the pullution of our water " HELD UNDERBOND. ami .loi kiis i,'iM-n : l'u-Hmi-naii Mi-ai-ini:.
