Tho draft was sent to both tho
British ambassador and the French
ambassador, as their governments
have signified willingness to nego
tiate a' broad arbitration treaty. It
win form tho basis of negotiations
with any country which signifies its
desiro to enter into similar relations
with the United States.
The general features of the draft
are stated as follows:
"It expands the scope of our exist
ing general arbitration agreement by
eliminating the exceptions contained
in existing ones of questions of vital
interest and national honor.
"It Is proposed that all differences
that aro internationally justifiable
shall be submitted to The Hague
tribunal, unless by special agree
ment some other tribunal is created
"It provides that differences that
either country thinks are not inter
nationally justifiable shall be referred
to a commission of inquiry, with
power to make recommendations for
their settlement. This commission
to be made up of nationals of the
two governments who are members
of The Hague court.
"Should the commission decide
that the difference should be arbi
trated, this decision is to be binding.
"Arbitrations are to be conducted
under terms of submission, subject
to the advice and consent of the
"Before arbitration is resorted to,
even in cases where both countries
agree that the difference is one sus
ceptible of arbitral decision, the com
mission of inquiry shall investigate
the difference with a view of recom
mending a settlement that will pre
clude the necessity of arbitration.
The action of this commission is
not to have the effect of an arbitral
award. The commission at the re
quest of either government shall de
lay its findings one year, to give op
portunity for diplomatic settlement."
Other features of the draft deal
mainly with the machinery of the
commission and other essential details.
