Moderate variable winds, NORTHFIELD WAS BLACKLIST LEGAL IS BRITISH REPLY Note Defines Trade Embargo as a War Necessity Designed to Shorten Conflict. WASHINGTON. Nov. 15. The Brit ish reply to the latest American, note protesting against the trade blacklist made public last night by the state de partment denies that rights of neutral traders under international law have been ruthlessly cancelled, defines the blacklist measure as a municipal regu lation plainly concerning only the Brit ish government and British citi izens, and contends that it is designed to shorten the war. The note fails to meet the American demand that the names of American, firms be stricken from the blacklist; but attempts to convince the state de partment that the British position ia just and founded on law. It leaves open the door for further negotiation which is expected to follow. The note was subscribed by Viscount Grey, the British foreign minister, and was addressed to and transmitted by Walter Hines Page, the American am bassador at London. A part which attracted much official notice dealt with the subject of peace based ou the theory that one American contention had been that there exists no military necessity for the blacklist, that it is unnecessary for the allies to prejudice neutral commerce and that nothing which happens in neutral coun ties, can influence the result of the great conflict.

Capt. E. W. Gibson of Company I, V. N. G., has received a number of orders and bulletins which have to do with drill regulations and the present stand ing of men who refused to take the fed eral oath. One interesting feature is that all commissioned officers, whether members of the medical staff or officers on detached service, are required to at tend as many drills as are the enlisted men. , "The question of pay for enlisted men who responded to the President's call of June IS," says one of the bul letins from Adjt. Gen. Lee S. Tillotsou, "and who were discharged by state au thority for physical disability or other causes prior to the muster into the fed eral service, has been referred by me to the war department, but I have not been able yet to obtain a decision. It is now in the hands of the quartermas ter general." Company commanders are asked for the names of all such men, their rank, date or enlistment and date of discharge and their present addresses. Bulletin No. 2 of the war department makes it plain that enlisted men called into the service of the United States are not discharged from the service except by the expiration of their terms of en listment without the approval of the department commander of the war department. An enlisted man is not discharged after his three years of ser vice, but is ' furlouched to-the reserve. The only ways of obtaining a discharge are on account of physical or mental disability, a sentence of imprisonment by a civil court, bona fide permanent change of residence to another state or enlistment in the regular army, navy or marine corps. A soldier who changes his residence to another state may ob tain his transfer to another military or ganization if he desires to continue in the service by application to the mili tia bureau of the war department. All men who were subject to the call of June 18 and who did not take, the federal oath cannot be discharged from the service except by authority of the war department. . Another bulletin from the adjutant general 's office, No. 4, gives the war department requirements for the maxi mum and minimum strength of all or ganizations of the National Guard. The maximum strength of companies 3 100 during peace times and the minimum number during peace is f5 enlisted men. A lengthy bulletin giving the gov ernment regulations for armory instruc tion of the National Guard shows that each company and detachment shall as semble for armory drill, including indoor target practice, not less thaa 48 times a year and each assembly shall be of at least one and one-half hours' duration. As a condition for the payment of of ficers and men the attendance for of ficers at the drills and assemblies in each semi-annual period must exceed 50 per cent and for enlisted men must ex ceed 60 per cent.
