Bryan Delivers Reply to Bornslorff
Effectual Blockade by Britain Nec
essarily Modifies Strength of Posi
tion, But America Has Net Receded
from Position.
WASHINGTON, April 21. The
reply of the United States to the re
cent memorandum from Count Benw
torff, Hie German ambassador, deal-i
ing with exportation of arms to the
allies will be delivered today to' this
German embassy. Secrotnry Bryan
made this announcement today, but
would not discuss the details of the
reply. Secretary Bryan declined to
ttny whether tho reply accepted tho
ambassador's memorandum as from
the Gorman government, or as nn ex
pression of Count Bemstorfi's per
sonal views. The reply, however,
gives it offieinl recognition, leaving
the ipiestion of its authority between
the ambassador and his government.
A Friendly IHschmIob
The reply is understood to be a
friendly discussion of the oints rais
ed by the ambassador, taking issuo
with the statement that tho United
States has accepted England's alleg
ed violations of international law, anil
calls attention to tho various notes
presented by the state department tu
London, asserting and defending thu
rights of neutral governments.
The effect of a declaration of a
practical blockade by Greut Britain
has necessarily modified the strength
of the position assumed by the United
States on these subjects, butnowhero
the note points out, has there been
any sacrifice of principle by tho
state department in the negotiations
with the allies. These, it is pointed
out, still nro continuing, with the re
sult Hint daily tho rigors of
the British order in council are being
Real Ilrcuch of Neutrality
Itegnrding the ambassador's pro
tent against the sale of arms und
munitions to tho allies, it is under
stood that the reply declares that any
attempt nt this stage of the war to
prohibit the sale of anus and ammu
nition to nuy applicant would ,ousti
tute a renl breach of neutrality.
Tho note is snid to hold that it is
Germany's misfortune if she is un
able to convey anus to her homo
ports, while the market is open to her,
and finally that there is no possible
application in tho present conditions
of tho peculiar legislation nml rules
made in the case of Mexico.
