Note States, However, that Practice Will Not Be Made General. Ixndon, Kng., Feb. 20. In reply to the American note asking Great Britain's attitude toward the use ot neutral flags on British ships in time of war, as in the case of the Lusltania, Great Britain issued a note Friday night denying any intention to make feneral use of neutral flags, but claim ng the right to do so occasionally. The note cited precedents for such action. -VnrfthIp hhould Investigate. In conclusion the statement says: "The obligation upon a belligerent warship to ascertain definitely for it self the nationality and character of a merchant vessel before capturing it and a fortiori (stronger reason) before sinking and destroying it. has been uni versally recognized. If that obligation ir fulfilled, the hoisting of a neutral flag on board a British vessel cannot possibly endanger neutral shipping and the British government holds that if loss to neutrals is caused by disregard ing this obligation, it is upon the enemy vessel disregarding and upon thfc gov lnent giving orders that it should be disregarded, that the full responsibility for injury to neutrals ought to rest." The British Itcply. Following is the text of the reply of Great Britain to the American note as handed to Walter Ilines Page, the American ambassador: ''The memorandum communicated on the 11th of February calls attention in courteous and friendly terms to the ac tion of the captain of the British steam ship Lusitania in raising the American flag when approaching British waters and says the government of the United States feels certain anxiety in consid ering the possibility of any general use of the flag of the United States by British vessels traversing those waters since the effect of such a policv might be to bring about a menace to the lives and vessels of United States citizens. "It was understood that the German government announced its intention of HT1 FLAGS sinking British merchant vessels at sight by torpedoes, without giving any opportunity or making any provision for the saving of lives or noncombatant crews and passengers. It was in conse quence of this threat that the Lusitania raised the United States flag on her in ward voyage. Left Under British King. ' "On her subsequent outward voyage a request was made by United States pas sengers who were embarking on board that the United States flag should be hoisted to insure their safety. Mean while the memorandum rrom your ex cellency had been received. His majesty's government did not give any advice to the company as to how to meet this request and it is understood that the Lusitania left Liverpool under the British flag. "It seems unnecessary to say more as regards the Lusitania In particular. "In regard to the use of foreign flags by merchant vessels, tho British mer chant shipping act makes it clear that the use of the British flag by foreign merchant vessels is permitted in time of war for the purpose of escaping capture. It is believed in the case of other nations there is similar recogni tion of the same practice with regard to their flag and that none of them has forbidden it. Can't Forbid Use of Flags. "It would therefore be unreasonable to expect his majesty's government to pass legislation forbidding the use of foreign flags by British merchant ves sels to avoid capture by the enemy, now that the German government has an nounced its intention to sink merchant vessels at sight with their nom-corebat-ant crews, cargoes and papers, a pro ceeding hitherto regarded by the opin ion of the world not as war but piracy. It is felt that the United States gov ernment could not fairly ask the British government to order British merchant essels to forego a means always hith erto permitted of escaping not only capture but the much worse fate of sinking and destruction. I'. S. Used Neutral FIngs. "Great Britain has always, when a neutral, accorded to vessels of other states at war, the liberty to use the Will Be Postmaster Shelion After Monday El Paso will celebrate Washington's birthday anniversary Monday by get ting a brand new postmaster. Post-maiter-elect B. A. Slielton, who ex pected to take charge of the rostoffice on Feb. 24, was informed Friday eve ning that his term would begin i on 1 eh. 23, as postmaster J. A. Smiths term had started "on that date and would end on the evening of Feb. -Z. Mr. Shelton will receive the office Monday afternoon and will be in full charge Tuesday morning when the office opens for business. , .

The federal building will also close during the day Monday. The banks have hung notices over the tellers' windows that they would remain closed during the day Monday. British flag as a means ot protection against capture, and instances are on record when United States vessels availed themselves of this facility at the time of the American civil war. It would be contrary to fairness to make an exception now when conditions are reversed artfl neutral nations were to grudge to British ships tne liberty to take similar action. "The British icovernment has no in tentloc of advising its merchant ship ping to use foreign flags as a general practice or to resort to them otherwise than for escaping capture or destruc tion. The obligation upon a belligerent warship to ascertain definitely for itself the nationality and character of a mer chant vessel before capturing it and a fortiori before sinking and restroying it has been universally recognized. If that obligation is fulfilled the hoisting of a neutral flag on board a British vessel cannot possibly endanger neu tral shipping and the British govern ment holds that If loss to neutrals is caused by disregard of this obligation, it is upon the enemy vessel disregard ing it and upon the government giving the orders that it should be disregarded that the sole responsibility for injury to neutrals ought to rest."

Johnson is due at Juares Sunday aft ernoon, but there is no positive assur ance that he will arrive before Mon day, as train connections in Mexico are anything but good at the present time. No further obstacles are ex pected to be put in the champion's way by either of the factions in Mex ico. No information was available at fight headquarters this morning a3 to the location of Johnson's camp. Sev eral offers of camps have been made by residents of Juarez, but the final selection will be left until the "big smoke" arrives. Flanagan Awaits Johnson's Arrival. It was expected thit Tom Flsjnagan, the Toronto trainer, would be here to make the preparations for Johnson, but the Canadian evidently had his doubts about Johnson getting through Mexico, for the latest advices from the north say that ilanagan would not leave Toronto until he received a wire that Johnson was in or very close to Juarez. Flanagan, who brought out Tom Longboat, the great Indian long distance runner, has trained Johnson for many of his fights and will likely be in full .charge of the negro's camp when he arrives. Sport Writers Coming. Over a score of noted ring writers have asked that the f igUt headquarters wire them when Johnson arrives, so it is believed that there will be a great influx of sport writers in about a week . . .
