In the course of the letter he says; "The Paris tribunal of arbitration found that a number df British sealing Vessels were seized in the Bering seaj of warned therefrom, by cruisers df the United States s leaving fof further determination the questions as td the value Of said vessels or -jdntentSi If the plfta of settlement suggested was not acceptable to congress, the ques' tidtts must be determined either by the organization of a joint commission or by negotiations between the tWd governments, Experience has shown that international commissions are slow and expensive. It will appear from the submitted correspondence that the agreement to pay the lump sum of $425,000 in full settlement of all demands was authorised to be made un* der the treaty and award proposed, by this government. The amount is Considerably below the damages claimed by Great Britain exclusive of interest for a number of .years.

'21.—Jphti tJttfnS,' the Tjofldoa lab'of agitatof and member of parttement, ho had be"en 'n UenVer in ttendance at the convention of the American Federation of I abor, Was interviewed here. In regard to his criticism in Denver of the American constitutipn, Mr. Burns Said reports sent out to certain papers were gross exaggerations. What he said on that occasion was that considering all the changes that had been made in America since the pre-industrial period when the constitution was framed, he thought there might advantageously toe made some changes in it in accordance with the increased love of liberty of the American people. As it stood now ( it Was the best constitution ever written, but that did not mean that it could not be improved... upon. Mr. Burns stated his opinion of this country as far as he had seen itepigramatically, as follows: "Schools splendid; libraries excellent) jails too good; roads bad, streets worse, drainage the same; art museums good for the age of the country; corporations exacting, tyran* nical and extravagant; railway travel* ing palatial for the rich and better than any I have ever seen for the poor: cut off the headline? of your newspapers and you have a good carcass left, but still too much of a journalistic slaughter house; municipal life considerably below that of any in Europe. I like America nd shall come here again some day. I think one of these days its municipal institutions, like most of its others, will be the, greatest in the world.. "I have been treated kindly by the mayors and principal officers in all the cities I have visited," he continued. "No, I won't write a book. I will tell the people in my speeches when I am face to face with them what I think of them; not skunklikc, hide myself in a cloud of hostile dust. That's me. That's John Burns." ' LABOR RIOT.
