FEBRUARY 3, • • '^ » ^ •» > ^ i ^^yr^^^^^^^Tr^^^^^rTri The Proposed Treaty With Great Britain, m 1 SL'in &&r The American people are familiar with the fact that there is now before ' the United States, for ratification, a treaty "of peace with England. Few, however, have read the articles of the proposed treaty, in England and ftther countries this treaty is being widely discussed* Why should not Americans, who are supposed to govern themselves, read ahil discuss the matter and then Write to their senators at Wash* Ington telling them what they think about it? For that reason we publish tho entire proposition. It is as follows: The United States of America and her majesty, the QUeen of tho United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, being deslroue of consolidating the relations of o-mity which so 'happily exist between them, and of consecrating by treaty the principle of international arbitration, have appointed for that pur- Pose as their respective plenipotentiaries the President of the United States of America, the Hon. Richard Olney, Secretary of State of the United States, and her. majesty, the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the Right Hon. Sir Julian Pnuncefote, a member of her majesty's most honorable Privy Council, Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honorable Order of the Bath and of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, and her majesty's Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the United States, who, after having communicated to each other their respective full powers, which were found to be in due and proper form, have agreed to and concluded the following articles: Article I. Fhe high contracting parties agree to submit to arbitration, In accordance with the provisions and subject to the limitations of this treaty, all questions in difference between them which they may fail to adjust by diplomatic negotiation. Article II. All pecuniary claims or groups of pecuniary claims which do not in the aggregate exceed £100,000 in amount, and which do not involve the determination of territorial claims, shall be y dealt with and decided by an ar- 'bitral tribunal constituted as provided In the next following- article. In this article and in Article IV the words groups of pecuniary claims" means pecuniary claims by one or more persons arising out of the same transactions or involving the same issuea of law and of fact. Article Mi. Each of the high contracting parties * ha «n«ninate one arbitrator, who shall be a Jurist of repute, and the two arbitrators so nominated shall within two months of the date of their nomi- ittg parties, and one, to act as umpire, by the four thus nominated, and to be chosen within three months after the date of their nomination. In case they sball fall to choose an umpire Within the limit of time above mentioned, the umpire shall be appointed by agreement between the nominating bodies designated In Article III, acting in the manner therein provided, in case they fail to agree upon an umpire within three months of the date of an application made to them in that behalf by the high contracting parties or either of them, the umpire shall be selected in the manner provided for In Article X. The person so selected shall be the president of the tribunal, and the award , United States to appoint a judicial oft eer of such state or territory to be on of the arbitrator* under article ill. o article V. or Article VI. In like man ner in cases where the question in volved Is one which concerns a British colony or possession, it shall be open to her Britannic majesty to appoint a judicial officer of such aolony or pos session to be one of the arbitrators ira der article ill. or article V. or article VI.

Either of the high contracting parties, however, may at any time give notice to the other, that, by reason of material changes, in conditions as existing at the date of this treaty, it Is opinion that a substitute for his majesty should be chosen either for all cases to arise under the treaty or for a particular specified case already arisen, and thereupon the high contracting .parties once proceed to agree upon such substitute to act either in all cases to arise under the treaty or in the particular case specified, as may be indicated in said notice; provided, however, that such notice shall have no effect upon an arbitration already begun by the constitution of an arbitral tribunal under arti- clo III.

Provided, however, that if in any case the essential mat- .er of difference submitted to arbl- ration is the right of one of the high contracting parties to, receive disavowals of or apologies 'for acts or de- aults of the other, not resulting in tibstantial pecuniary injury, the ar- tltral tribunlal finally dispoing of the aid matter shall direct whether any f the expenses of the successful party hall be borne by the unsuccessful arty, and If so, to what extent.

RICHARD OLNEY, JULIAN PAUNCEFOTE. WRITE TO YOUIl 8KNATOK. It will take a two-thirds vote of the senate to ratify the treaty, which really means an offensive and defensive alliance. The senators will take great heed of expressions from the people on the advisability of entering into an alliance of this kind. Action will probably be taken in a few days. Those desirous of protesting or endorsing the proposition should lose no time in writing to their senators. Siiinfe Old Story.

A knottk at the door ahd there entered a pfos* perous-looking geTtitlemftn, one o the bank's heaviest depositors. He took a seat and said: "There is some one connected With .this bank whom i have not seen for some time. 'To save my soul I cannot place him.' 1 "It is Mr. Jones, the cashier, whom you refer to," replied the president. "Correct. What has become of him?" "I believe he has gone to Canada." "For a change of scene, most likely, I suppose • he has left* the bank for good?" "We haven't got through looking over his books as yet," replied the bank president, wearily, "but from'the Way things appear at present I suspect he has taken the bank with him," and he sadly gazed about the office to see If any of the furniture was missing.—New York Journal.
