By Robert J. Bender.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Wn.niiiirtnn. Julv 20. After a con
ference this afternoon between Presi
ilmt Wilson and Actinir Secretary of
State Polk it wns learned a strong pro
iii nuninut Rritish lilncklist iiiu of Am
erican firms and corporations would be
sent to London in the next few days.
The president and Polk discussed the
litustion for more thau an hour. It ie
understood the protest will enter into
the principle of the blacklist, leaving
specific instances to be handled in dif
ferent form. For more than a 'week
Polk has been giving practically his en
tire attention to the blacklist matter.
Ho has beard numerous complaints,
mnnv nf which he savs. sive more than
sufficient ground for vigorous protest.
Some of these, it is understood, already
have been taken uu with Ambassador
Spring Rice here.
