(Consul General Skinner to the Secretary of state.)


No. 1140.]


London, February 1, 1916. SIR: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of department's instruction. (Not printed.)

I am inclosing herewith a supplement of the London Gazette, No. 29452, issued January 27, 1916, containing the official text of the proclamation referred to in the foregoing. I have, etc.

ROBERT P. SKINNER. Another revision was published in April, 1916:



The articles declared to be contraband of war in the proclamations now in force have been arranged alphabetically in the accompanying list. It is hoped that this will be convenient to all parties concerned.

The list comprises the articles which have been declared to be absolute contraband as well as those which have been declared to be conditional contraband. The circumstances of the present war are so peculiar that His Majesty's Government consider that for practical purposes the distinction between the two classes of contraband has ceased to have any value. So large a proportion of the inhabitants of the enemy country are taking part, directly or indirectly, in the war that no real distinction can now be drawn between the armed forces and the civilian population. Similarly, the enemy Government has taken control, by a series of decrees and orders, of practically all the articles in the list of conditional contraband, so that they are now available for Government use. So long as these exceptional conditions continue our belligerent rights with respect to the two kinds of contraband are the same and our treatment of them must be identical.
