Paris, Dec'. 7.—The essential features of the peace treaty have been disposed of by the joint commission. The work la now practically accomplished and the document will be signed within the next two or three days. Following are the leading articles embodied la the treaty: The rellnijuishment by Spain of her sovereignty over Cuba and the withdrawal of the Spanish troops there; the relinquishmenl by Spain of her • eovereignty over Porto Rico; 'Spain's cession of" the Philippines and tho withdrawal of the Spanish, troops there; payment by the United States f of $20,000,000 for the Philippines, and the .provision for the "open door" commercial policy in the Philippines. The rough draft of the treaty coTers the proposals. It makes.a long document, which Senator Cushman K. Davis of the United States peace commission says will be found to be one of. the most interesting papers in its character ever written. So complete!" are th'e details of the evacuation of the Philippines stipulated that a commission such'as arranged for the Spanish withdrawal from the West Indies will be unnecessary. A few questions that yet remain to be settled are the coaling station and religious freedom in the Carolin.es, the Spanish commission not having replied to the American offer. The Americans have agreed to transport, the Spanish prisoners home, including the garrison and sailors at Manilla, captured by Admiral Dewey and General Merritt, as well as the soldiers and civilians held by the Filipinos, whoi:3 return the Americans have guaranteed. As compensation, Spain promises to liberate all Cuban, Porto Ricau and Philippine . political prisoners. Spanish soldiers electing to remain in the colonies may do so, but it is more a matter of economy for the Americans to return the others, as they must be fed as long as; they are kept and Spain Is unable to bear the expense of the repatriation. The Americans have rejected Spain's request for free shipping for ten years In Cuban and Porto Rican waters, they having given the Spanish commissioners such poor consolation as the latter may derive from the permission to reapply when* the diplomatic relations have been renewed, for shipping concessions under the reciprocity scheme of the Dingley law, for which Sen"/ Dupuy de Fxime was' negotiating a Washington whon the war broke out the Gnntleman From Missouri Contend* Thru Under the Constitution of the United States a Colonial System Cannot Be Established—Farther Proceedings of the Senate and House.

TUe colonial system of European nations can not be established under our present constitution, but all territory acquired by the gOTornruent, except such small amount as may be necessary for coaling stations, correction of boundaries and similar governmental purposes, must be acquired and governed with the purpose of ultimately organizing such territory Into states suitable for admission to the Union.

Mr* Vest expressed his opposition to the bill, principally because it afforded protection to the coastwise trade which needed no protection. Our general carrying trade, Mr. Vest believed, needed protection. Under the present system of navigation laws this trade had decreased from 75 per cent to 11 per cent, and this country is now paying $150,000,000 equally to foreign ship owners for carrying trade that ought to be carried in America bottoms. This condition of affairs, Mr Vest declared, was a "scandal and disgrace." He said he had been amused at the suggestion of the president made In his message submitted -yesterday that our carrying trade be encouraged by the payment of subsidies. "Under the proposed policy in the administration," continued Mr. Vest, "we are to build a great navy. We are to cease to be a nation of traders, and under the impulse of the policy of expansion become a nation of warriors. It would appear to be better first to build up our carrying trad*. I would also let our people, through the bene- flcient effects of such trade, buy where they can buy cheapest." dnaae Proceeding*.

John Churton Collins, the distinguished essayist and Quarterly Reviewer, has been lecturing on the theater of Shakespeare's time. The typical theater then was of wood, circular or hexagonal in form, being modeled externally ou the general structure of the/old amphitheaters for bull and bear baiting. The interior was faahioued after the manner of an inn yard. The pit was scorched by the sun, while the actors \vere protected by a thatched penthouse. The scenery was supplied by the imagination of the audience, but what was lacking in scenery was made up in noise and bustle, things being kept very lively in that direction. Tbe most untuer ous class among the audience v»ereroist eting prentices. On the stage and in other parts were fashionable dandies, swafih bucklers, writers and actors. These, it is interesting to kuow, always had a free pass. The play lasted two hours on an average, and, considering the noise and the smells which accompanied the performance, ouo was, Mr. Collins presumed, not sorry when "tbe actors dropped on their knees to pray for the queen.". ^M' «^^ •^^ Clothing Second Floor All heavy Winter SUITS, LIU lildren, We do not mark up goods for this sale.
