A review of the history of this quet- tion will show that all former attempts to arrive at a common Interpretation, satisfactory lo Loth partios, of the flrst article of the treaty of Oct. 'JO, 1(>18, unve been unsuccessful; and with the lapse of time tho difficulty anJ obscurity liavo only Increaped. The negotiations in IH.~>4, and ngain In 1871, ended In both cases in lempornry reciprocal arrangements of the tariff* of Canada and Newfoundland, ond of the United States, and the payment of a money award by tup United tftnU'i, under which the real questions in difr.!ivnco remained unsettled, in abeyance, and ready to present themselves anew just an soon as the conventional ar- igeinonln were Abrogated. Tha situation, t!ie r o f orp, remained, unimprovel by. the results of the t runty of 1871, and a grave condition of affair*, presenting almost identically tho same features and en uses of complaint by thn United SlatBsngalnRt Canadian action nnd Hritlsh default In ilx correction, confronted \in in- May, 1880, and has continued until lu» present lime. The greater ' pnrt of the correspondence which has taken place between the two governments has heretofore been communicated to congiess, a >d at ns cnrly a day as possible I shall tnuiflmlt the remaining portion to this date, Bcroinpinying It with the joint proto* coh of the conferences which resulted in tho t'O.ity now Kuhniitunl to you. You will thus be fniiy poisossod of tho record and history of tl.c caw since the termination, on Juna SO, Jb85, of tho. fishery article of the treaty of '"aslilngton of 1871, whereby we were rele- gati'il to Ihe provisions of the treaty of Oct. 20, ISIS • As the documents and papers re ferred to will supply full information of tlio positions t ken under my administration by the representatives of. tho United titates, aw well as thuse occupied by the representatives ol Urent Drilain, it is not considered necessary or expedient to repeat them in this mes-.' sage. . Bui 1 b-llijve the treaty will bo found to contain a juit, houorubla and, therefore, RntUfactory H jlution of the difficulties which Imve clouded our relations witb our noigh- bors on our northern border. Especially satisfactory do 1 believe the proposed arrangement will be found by those of our citizms who aru engaged In the open sea flsl-oi'ie*, .n*l j icont to the Canadian coast, and resorting Ui Ibosu purls and harbors under treaty provisions am! rules of international law. Tbo proposed delimitation of the lines o: the exclusive Ihherie.* from tho common fisheries will give certainty and security as; to the area of their legitimate field; the headland theory of imaginary lined is abandoned by Great Britain, and the specification in the treaty of Curtain named buys especially • provided for gives satisfaction to Iho inhabitants of the shores, without subtracting materially from tho value or convenience of the fishery rlxhts of A-neriouns. The uninterrupted navigation of • Ino strait' of Cftnso is expressly and for tho first time affirmed, and the four purpose* lor which our fishermen under the treaty of IblB were allowed to enter tbe bays and harbors of Canada and Newfoundland within the belt of three marine miles are. placed under a fair and liberal construction, and their enjoyment secured without such conditions and restriction* as in tha post have embarassed and obstructed them so seriuu<iy. The enforcement of penalties for unlawful fishing or preparing to flih within tha inshore and exclusive waters of Canada and Newfoundland I* to be accomplished under safe-guards against oppressive or arbitrary action, thus protecting the defendant fishermen from punishment in 'advanoe of trial, delays and iuconvenleuca and unnecessary expense. ;.•;-" '1 bo history of event* in tho lost two J»ars ihow that no feature of Cauanlan administration wa* moro barrasslng and Injurious than the compulsion upon our fishing vessels to make formal entrance and clearance on every occasion of temporarily seeking shelter In Canadian ports and harbors. Buch inconvenience is provided ngulnst in the proposed treaty, and this most frequent and just cause of complaint is removed. Tbe articles permitting our fishermen to obtain provisions and the ordinary supplies of trading vessels on their homeward voyage*. and under which they are accorded tbe further and even more Important privilege on all occasions of purchasing such casual or needful provisions and aupplioj si are ordinarily granted to trading vessels, are of great importunce and value. The licenses which are to l>o granted without cuargo and on application In order lo enable oar flshoruiea to enjoy these privileges are reasonable and proper checks in the' bands of , the local authorities to identily the recipients and pro- rent abuse, an-1 can form no impediment to Ihose who intend to uao them fairly. Tbe hospitality secured for our vessels in all cage* 3l actual distress, with liberty to unload au I K>ll and tranship their cargoes, is full and liberal. These provisions will secure tho substantial enjoyment, of tbe treaty right* tor our flsuer- men under tbe treaty of 1818 for which contention has been steadily made In tbe oorre- spondtmce of tbe department of state, and our minister at London, and by the American negotiator* of the present treaty. The right of our (Ubermon under tbo treaty uf J818 did not extend to the procurement of (llstlncuvi; fishery lupplias la Canadian ports and barb irs; and nua it«iu nuppodej to b) oe- sentlai, to wit, bait, was plainly denied them by the explicit and deQuite words of the treaty ot 1H18, emphasized by the course of tbe negolia ion and exprf*s decisions which prtutxled the conclusion of that treaty. Tut) treaty uow submitted contains no provision nnVctinx: tarift duties, and ludu- peaduutly of the position asuitn:ed upon the part of tbe U .itod States that nn s I u ration In our trriff or other domestic legislation could be mode on tbe price or ronsidaratioa of obtaining ilio righu of our ritic.tu* secured by treaty, ll was oonnldared more »l- pedient to allow any chingo in the revenue laws of the United Status to bo n»t 'e by tb« ordinu-y mcicisu of l«Klslalty* will, nod IB pfomonou ctt th* public inurxta Tuora- (or*, tb-u ailditioo to tb* frco U*t ol tUh, U»o oil. wb&lu an'l «i*l oil, ottv, rtwlb*!

Our Bocinl and commercial Intercourse with those populations who have boon placed npon our borders and made forever' our" nelghlxus is mnde apparent by a list of United State* common carriers, marine and Inlan 1, cennno Ing their lines with Canada, which WM returned by the secretary of tho treasury to tho senate on the Tth day of Fi-b- rnnry, 18»3, In answer to a resolution of that body; and this is Instrnclive as to the grout volume of 'mutually profitable Interchanges which has come into existence during the lost half a century. This intercourse la still bnt partially developed, and if _the amicable enterprise and wholesome rivalry between the two populations bo not obstructed, the promise of tho future is full of fruits of an unbounded prosperity on both sidej of the border. The treaty now submitted to you has been framed In a spirit of liberal equity and reciprocal benefit*, In tha conviction that mutual advantage and convenience are the only permanent foundation of peace and friendship bctwoou states, and that with tbe adoption of tho agreement now placed teforo the senate a' beneficial and satisfactory in- tercjurso betwoen tho two countries will be established so 0.1 to secure perpetual peace and harmony. In connection with tho treaty herein submitted, I deem It also my duty to transmit to the senate a written offer or arrangement, in the nature of a "inodus Vivendi," tenderoc after the conclusion of the treaty on the p-.rt of the British plenipotentiaries to secure kindly and peaceful relations during the p-Tiod that may bo required for the consideration of tbe treaty by the respective goveriv ments, and for the enactment of tbe necessary legislation to carry ita provisions into effect, if approved. This paper, freely a id on their own motion, signed by the British oouferrees,notonly extends advantages to our fishermen, pending the ratification of the treaty, but appears to have been dictated by a friendly aud amicable spirit. I am given to understand that tbe other government* concerned In this treaty will; within a few days. In occordance-with- their mothods of conducting public business, submit said treaty to their rospectlvo legislatures, when it will bo it once published to the world. In view of such action Itappenrs to be advisable that, by publication hero. early and full knowledgo.of all that has been done In the premises should be afford-^ ed to our people. U would also seem to txT useful to inform tho popular mind concerning the history of the long-continued disputes growing out of the subject embraced in the treaty, and to satisfy the public interests touching tbo same, as well as to acquaint our people with the pro*nnt status of the questions involved, and to give them tho exact terms of tho proposed adjustment, In place of the exaggerated and Imaginative statements which will otherwise reach them. I therefore beg leave respectfully to suggest that said treaty and all such correspondence, message'*, and documents relating to tbe same as may bo deemed Important to accomplish these purposes be at once made public by the order of yonr honorable body, [Hljined] Gnovjcn CLEVELAND.

Mo Federal OmelKls To Be Present—'Frlseo Bonn* to Have the Cnll. Crrr, Feb. ,a— No offloe- bolder who holds a presidential commission is expected to present as a member of the Democratic national committee. Upward Of ten members or the committee now hold federal positions of importance, and until Tuesday It was thought that all would appear In person. It is learned, however, that an intimation has gone out that it would be better Tor them not to appear, and all of the goT~ erment officers who are member* of tha* committee will doubtless be represented by proxies. A cabinet officer, in discussing the mntter with a representative of tho United Press, expressed tbe opinion that for an official to be present In the committee, In view of the president's well-known views on the subject, would be, to say the least, "indelicate." The contest between I h»delegations her* for the location of tho next Democratic national convention, bra apparently narrowed down to Chicago, br. Louis and Ban Francisco. The Cincinnati delegate* are still in the field, and while not confident, hope to profit and perhaps win, by the close rivalry of tho three cities named. Tho Now York delegates are opon In their professions of favoring first Nuw York city, with but little prospect of winning, and second San Francisco. A survey of tho situation from surface Indications seems to place San Francisco in the lead, with St. Louis and Chicago not defl- nitc'y placed. The Chicago and Bt Louis dolugatlons sovm to depend mutually upon each other to dofeat Ban Francisco, while tho 0)4 -time rivalry between Chicago and Bt. Louia is relied upon by tbe 'Frisco delegation to prevent a combination of members of the national committee friendly to tho** cities.

The Senate Pick of the "Lying" About Proceedings In Secret B«»lon. WASHINGTON CITY, Feb. 22. —"The enter- Ing wedge for the abolition of secret sessions. 1* to be the dlscu*slon of the fishery treaty," >aid one of the most Influential Republican •enators to a United Press reporter. "We ar* going to O|wn tbe doors," he continued, "when we discuss this treaty, and I am satisfied that It will result in open doom for the consideration of all executive business upon . which tbe injunction of secreay Is not specially voted. - There ho* been BO much lying about what really took place in secret cession on the .British extradition treaty, that nearly all of tho senators are heartily sick of the whole secret session business, and are about ready to open tbe doors by practically unanimous consent. Closed doors and the Injunction of secrecy give too much latitude to men who want to promote their selfish ends and misrepresent what really occur* in secret sessions."
