Germany, arising from the sink-

the United States and the Allies
as the result of the declaration
of cotton as absolute contraband

of the day.
There continues to be much
speculation as to what action, if
any, the United States will take
regarding the Arabic, especially
as the evidence of officers and
passengers goes to show that
the ship was not convoyed and
received no warning. It is as
serted that no one on board saw
the submarine and there could
be no intention on the part of
Captain Finch to run away,
It is expected here thai Ame-
rica will offer less serious ohjec
