Loss of privileges accorded the United States by trade treaties now In effect brought about by a pos sible refusal of other nations to ac cept amendment of conventions to agree with the Jones shipping act. thus forcing the state department to cancel whole treaties, is a possibility developed in preliminary negotiations for potting the Jones act into effect.

American shipping can engage In business with the Straits settlements and other British possessions, and it is possible this privilege will lapse If the whole treaty were denounced and that something like general com mercial warfare would follow.
