DEVELOPMENTS T BUT NO HINT HAS BEEN GIVEN WHICH WOULD INDICATE THE TENOR OF GREAT BRITAIN'S RE PLY. Washington. Jan. 3. -While no word came from Ambassador Page today as to the character of the reply which Great llritlan will make to the Ameri can note of protest concerning inter ference with American trade, there were several developments in the gen eral shipping situation. The flitted States asked Great Ilrit ain for information as to how the hit ter's statement made early in No vember, that naval stores, including rosin, camphor and turpentine, would be regarded as non-contraband, will be reconciled in actual practice with the notification from the British for eign office of a week ago saying these products now are absolute contra bund. Information is sought as to how car goes now en route are to be affected and whether resinous products are in cluded in the classification. Italy Must Seek U. S. Copper. The Italian ambassador informed the state department that, while sta tistics would make it appear that ex traordinary amounts of copper ship ped from the Pnlted States to Italy might be for tin-neutral purposes, the fact of the matter was that as Ger many needed her own copper, Italy could no longer import from t he coun tries immediately to the north of her, but must seek the metal in the Amer ican markets. Much gratification was manifested at the Ktate department because of the release by Great llritaiii of the American oil tank steamers Tiflis and Narragansett, anil the freighter Geo. II. I law ley which had been held at Palnioiith since Nov. SO. The case of the Hriudilla, originally detained at Halifax, and rearrested on her return journey from Kgypt and taken to a Ki'encli port, is looked upon as likely to produce compile atlons. Should the question or change of registry be raised, a precedent may be set. lor while Gnat Hrltaln has recog nized t lie transfers when of a bona fide nature, the attitude of France lias never been explicitly declared. The communication which the stale department sent concerning naval stores, is said to be the tirst protest on speeilic articles listed by Great Itritain as absolute contraband. In the American note of protest it was stated that while the fniled States objected to some of the classifications made, the discussion of them would be re served until another time. Southern Congressmen Informed. The protest concerning naval stores was communicated today to the gov ernors and senators of several south ern states. Hosin and turpentine bad been intended for ballast with cotton cargoes and the llrltish government is on record as stating that cargoes so made up would not lie regarded as contraband. The state department bad no sooner sent notification to this ef fect to shippers than the British For eign office published its new list. To prevent recurrence of the charges that American shippers con ceal copper and contraband articles In cotton and other non-contraband car goes, the following formal notice sup pi entary to President Wilson's warning of last week was issued to duv by Secretary Redlield of the de partment of commerce. Manifests Need be Complete. "The attention of shippers of goods to neutral countries is called to the importance of having manifests com-) plete and accurate. It Is essential al so to avoid mixing contraband goods In cargoes otherwise not contraband. It is alleged that some American manifests have omitted certain con traband goods, also that efforts have been made to conceal contraband ar ticles or to alter their appearance so that they will be allowed to pass. "A single case of the kind is suf ficient to embarrass all American commerce to neutral countries by throwing doubt on the correctness of our manifests and on the neutral na ture of our cargoes, thus possibly in volving delay through examining car goes that otherwise would be avoid ed."

Scene from "The Callng of Dan Matthews,' At the Opera House Next Tuesday Night. CALLING OF DAN MATHEWS" The plays which do the most good in the world are those which set men thinking. The tusk lias been well ac complished by Harold Hell Wright In the dramatization of his popular book, "The Calling of Han Matthews." The scene of the play is in the Ozark mountains. In a little town called Cor inth. The hero is a young preacher, and. by the way, Is the son of our old friends Sammy and Young Matt, whom we know in "The Shepherd of the Hills," who comes to Corinth to be pastor of one of its churches. At first lie is well received. loiter. In preaching the convictions of his own heart and In befriending Denny, a poor boy, and his mother, and a poor innocent girl for whose bad reputa tion certain persons In li is church are largely responsible, he Is driven to re sign his position as pastor, and the most influential members In the church turn out to be the meanest and the lowest. In the dramatization, the story is brought out with dramatic force and strength that leaves abso lutely nothing to be desired. There is a delightfully humorous old character in the person of the old doctor, who is a disciple of Isaac Wal ton, and believes that the best medi cine for a tired heart or a weary brain is to catch a good mess of fish. The love story running through the piece is sweet, pure wholesome, and t li is, together with some extremely realistic and startling scenes and situ ations, make a play brimming over with interest and with a powerful "punch." "The Calling of Dan Matthews comes to the Opera House on Tnes day, Jhii, 5, and Is under the man agenient of Messrs. Gaskill and Mac Vitty, who have given it a cast of reputation and a scenic production par excellence. Little Girt Drowns at Guthrie. j Guthrie, Okla., Jan. 3.
