The chauffeur, Paul Kania, applied
the brakes suddenly as the car ran
on the slippery approach to the bridge.

through the railing and turned a com

drowned were caught in the wreckage
of the car.
The chauffeur jumped clear as the

Prize Court Decision as to
Antilla Is ' Awaited.
WASHINGTON. March SO. The reply
of the United States Government to the
British order-in-councll decreeing a
virtual blockade against commerce to
and from Germany was cabled to
American Ambassador Page at London
tonight for presentation to the British
As soon as the communication has
been delivered it will be made public
here and in London under an agree
ment between the two governments.
In the meantime officials decline to
give any intimation as to its contents.
Beyond the fact that the United
States stands firmly for its right to
carry on legitimate trade with neu.tral
countries, even though they be con
tiguous to belligerents, little is known
of the Administration's position in view
of developments since the last note was
dieoatehed inquiring how Great Britain
and her allies intended to enforce
their prohibition against trade of
"enemy origin, ownership or destina
tion." Officials have pointed out. however,
that the American Government wanted
more definite information as to the
radius of action of the allies' blockad
ing fleets, and that the question
whether the order in council was to
bo enforced under international law
governing blockades or under the rules
of contraband, had not been answered.
Diplomats of other ceutral countries,
particularly those of South and Cen
tral American governments, have dis
played the greatest interest in the note.
Several of them were among Secretary
Bryan's callerB today, though bo far as
could be learned none gained any pos
itive information as to the character
of the document.
Since efforts to bring about joint
representations regarding the rights
of neutrals on the high seas failed it is
understood that the South and Central
American republics desire strongly to
move along lines set by the United
States to establish their record which
will form the basis of claims for dam
ages suffered by their citizens through
the activities of the allied fleets.
It was said at the State Department
today that the usual practice of await
ing judgment by the prize court was
being followed in the case of the cargo
of the American steamer Antilla, which
was seized last month. The records
show that the steamer carried a quan
tity of lard and .some machinery, both
of which have been declared contraband
bv Great Britain. As -to the ship her
self, no reason for her detention now
that her cargo has been discharged
is known, and Department officials ex
pect her to be released soon.
