two together presented. In the view of
the Ameiican government, "a proposed
course of action previously unknown
to international law."
Allies Propose Quasi Blockade.
The answers from Great Britain and
France reveal for the first time that
the allies officially regard their posi
tion as a "blockade," but desire to re
frain from exercising the rights of bel
ligerents under a blockade to confiscate
ships and cargoes as a penalty for

were not given more exactly, the al

equally indefinite in proclaiming all the
waters surrounding Great Britain and
Ireland a "war sone."

The restriction of the area, of opera
tions of the blockade to European
waters followed this observation by
United States to both Great Britain
"While this government is fully alive
to the possibilties of modern naval
warfare, particularly in the use of sub
marines for both defensive and of
fensive operations, may make the for
mer means of maintaining a blockade
a physical impossibility, it feels that
it can be urged with great force that
there should be also some limit to 'ra
dius of activity' and especially so if
this action by the belligerents can b
construed to be a blockade. It would
certainly create a serious state of af
fairs if. for example, an Ar erican ves

gin should escape the British patrol in
European waters only to be held up b

to purchase anything, nor did he ar
range to have them steal papers from
the construction company.
Couldn't Agree on Terms.
Murdock, who is 2 years old, has
been employed as assistant shipping
clerk at the plant of the Seattle Con
struction and Dry Dock company for
two years. In a statement to the prose

Mueller were still pending when he was
arrested. He had originally demanded
$1500. he said, but later agreed to ac
cept SlsAV. He asserted that he had
certain information ready for delivery
at a conference to be held at the con
sulate Tuesday evening, but there was
a hitch over the money and the confer
ence came to naught.
Murdock said he stole nine original
bills of lading Tuesday, together with
a bundle of blank forms so that a copy
could be made of the originals.

It was asserted at the county prosecu
tor's office today that before any infor

and secretary B. Max Schulz. the treaty
with Germany of 1S71. was studied
carefully. According to this treaty,
consuls are immune from arrest except
on criminal charges.

to appear for trial in the superior court

Turn the rascals out tbe headache,

to-night and keep them out with Cas
carets. Millions of men and women take a
Cascaret now and then and never know
the misery caused by a lazy liver,
clogged bowels, or an upset stomach.
Don't put in another day of distress.
Let Caacareta cleanse your stomach: re
move the sour, fermenting food: take
the excess bile from your liver and car

and poison in the bowels. Then you
will feel great.
A Cascaret to-night straightens you
out by morning. They work while you
