Washington, Nov. 8. - Publication" today of the American note to (treat Britain, denouncing as "ineffective, illegal and indefensible" the attempted blockade against Germany and Austria gives notice- to the citizens of ' United States, whose legitimate foreign trade is interfered with by the Allies', that thev should seed redress directly through diplomatic channels of their own government rather than , through.prize courts. 1 This-latest note delivered by Ambassador Page to the British Foreign Office is an exhaustive document dealing with England's interference with : American trade since the outbreak of the war. In effect the communication is also to France which has followed her ally in treatment of overseas i commerce A copy was presented to ' the French embassy here. Thirty-five points-are treated in the note and in conclusion Secretary Lansing declares that United States "cannot with coomitacence suffer further subordination of its rights and interests to the plea that the except tional geographical position of the enemies of Great Britain require or justify oppressive and. illegal tices. The relations between United States and Great 'Britain, he- says, must be governed 'noi� by expediency but - by established rdCcs of international conduct; it", is- of the highest importance to neutrals-hot only of the present day but of the'future, that principles of international rights he maintained unimpaired .and the United States unhesitatingly '^assumes the task of championing 'the rights- of neutrals. - .Heretofore. (Americans whose cargoes, -destined- to neutral countries, have, been seized on the high seas and delayed - or confiscated have been advised to exhaust lugal remedies abroad before asking United States government to seek reparation. Now the note-says the government "feels that it;* cannot- reasonably be expected to advise its,'citizens to seek redress before'tribunals which are in its opinion unauthorized by unrestricted application;,of. international law, to grant reparation nor to refrain from presenting tfi'eir claim. directly to the British^ government through diplomatic 'channels.-;? - Since-the,United States does not recognize the-j existence of a legaK blockade, - Americans may look to their (government for protection in pracr, the shipment! of non-contraband car-i goes >natvbnly � to neutral countries LIKELY TO contigudus' tti belligerents but directly. toior..1.fronY enemies.of .the allies W. L. Phillips, president of District.! London, � Nov. 8.-Notwithstanding the forecasts of the American note to Great Britain protesting' against the British blockade, which had been sent from Washington by correspondents of tlio British press, surprise is the predominant tone of the majority of British newspaper publications in their comment on the document. The country has been too deeply wrapped up in .consideration of pressing European problems during the past . few weeks to give much attention to American" opinion and: apparently it was not aware that - treatment of American shipping might furnish ground for serious controversy between the two governments. ' 'The American, note upon our interference witlr neutral trade,',' says the Pall Ms.ll Gazette, "will be read with some surprise in this country. While the duty of every power to keep vigi-' lant guard over the interests .of its own commerce will be freely recognized, it must lie felt that the United States' scarcely grapples with the realities of the situation created in the first place by the tact of the war and in the second place by the criminality of German practices.. In some passages . the note seems, to invoke authority of international law as if. its problems could he finally settled 'for one belligerent without reference to the doings of the other. That is a view utterly inapplicable in the world of things as they are. Tt is impossible to deal with questions arising between the Allies and United States, while ignoring the practices of Admiral Von Tlrpite and changes in policy which they forced upon ourselves and'our -friends.

Mr. Jewell declared that if. the United becomes the producer which he confidently expects, "it will mean the biggest thing that could happen to this country."
