Washington, July gs.—In announc ing today the receipt from Great Britain of a reply to the American note of Mnrcb JO which protested the Britiah order in council and iVfnch dcci*w* of nimilir i*on tents. Secretary Lansing slated that the dispatch of a new note te the allies on the subject, which has been under consideration for several weeks, would be delayed now until' the latest communication from Lon-' don was thnroughty studied. With the sending of the note last week to Germany on submarine war, the general impression given in of ficial quarters was that the protest to Great Britain would go forward within another week.

While the new Britich not* will re quire study, It doon not in the opin ion of officials affect the American position In insisting that non-contra band gods destined to or from s bel ligerent notion through a neutral country, is not subjoct to the rules of blockade. In support of this, the American government stands on the famous Malamorns rases in the Civil War, in which the United State Su preme court ruled that the non-eon Lrabend portion of a cargo shipped from England to Mexico, destined to Texas which was the n blockaded, mult he released, since a blockade y operated against Ire*’* • . , ? -ft a- » tire subjee. _,if WCTm i'ent Wilson on hla return to Wash ington.

The British note is a lung, exhaui-' tive legal discussion nf each point I made in the American correspond-' nice. Its keynote la a declaration that the British government has I steadfastly held to the principle* of international law that has been done under the order in council; and that if a neutral government feels ag grieved at the application of the or der there is a remedy in the courts,! or eventually in arbitration.
