'peaceful blockade."
Although it has not been nut Into
public expression, this government
contends tnat there is no such thin?
as a "peaceful blockade." If a state
of war does not exist this government
will contend, at the proper time, that
United States ships must be allowed
to pass.1 v
The test will come when the Red D
Line steamer Caracas arrives at La
Guayra. probably next Saturday. If
that ship goes through, as it is ex
pected it will, other ships from other
nations will also demand to go
through, and the "peaceful blockade"
will become a farce.
If Germany insists on its right to
blockade peaceably and refuse to let
American ships through, then Ad
miral Dewev'a fleet, will ho sent tn

ships through the German and English
lines. Admiral Dewev has heen told
