Inclosed In Karl Kei eberrj's communica

Maicmls of Landsdownu to Kail Uianvllle , in
whlcli he snjs : "Bajard's statement that the

tion In this mattei to 'invade and destioy the
commercial rights and privileges seemed to
cltl/ensof the United States under anil by
virtue of the tieaty stipulations with ( iieat
Britain , ' is not warranted bj the tacts of the
case. Xo attempt has been made either bj'
thu authorities Interested with the enfoice-
inent of tlio existing law or by tlie parlia
ment of Hie Dominion to Interfere with ves
sels engaged In bonatldocoinnicrcial transac
tions upon the coast ot the Dominion. "
Under dates of August 9 , 17 and 18 and
September It ) , Secietary Bijard complains of
a violation of the tieaty stipulations on the
part of tlio Canadian authorities towaulsthe
vessels Italtlei , ( ioldcn Hind , Shlloli , Jane
Kllen and Molliu Adams , declaring that such
violations wcro distinctly unfiicndiy and
contrary to the humanitarian laws of nations
and the usages of civ Hired nations , and in
tlie case ot the .lane Kllen and Shiloh he
asserts that the tiring of gnus
acioss their bows was a most unusual and
uncalled-for exhibition of hostility.
Undei date of October 18 , Secretary Bayard ,
attei detailing to Minister West the clicnni-
stances of the seizure ot the Kveiett Steele ,
says : "If , as I cannot permit myself to
believe , ( Ireat Biltnln should refuse to cltl-

aid advises Minibterl'helps of the bci/uro of
tliu Mailon ( irimos and thu enfoiced lower
ing ot the American Hag Captain Qulgloy ,
ot the Canadian cruiser Terroi. In com
menting upon this case , the secretary sajs :
"It seems hardly necessary to say that It is
not until alter the condemnation by a priro
court that the national H.IK of a vessel sei/ed

Under date of Juno 0 , Minister T'hclps ad-
diessed a communication to Earl Uosebenj
protesting in thu name of the United btatos
government about the seizures raadu by the
Canadians as wholly unwarranted by tlie
treaty of 1818 , requestine the release of the
vessels , and Infoinitng him that the United
States would hold horinajestj's government
responsible lor all losses sustained by Amer
ican clti/ens growing out of Hie sei/urcs.
Tlio correspondi'iieo closes with a letter
from Minister I'hclps to Karl lloseberrv in
which he combats the position taken by the
earl that her majesty's government cannot
take action in the matter of the sei/nres he-
cause the Canadian courts are considering
all the cases In dispute. I'hclps maintains
that thu United States must look to the home
government for rediessand satisfaction , and
foi such Instructions to the colonial authori
ties as will prevent future sel/uiea. He sug
gests as a means of preventing further col
lisions between American haheimc.ii and
Canadian ofllclals that an ad Interim con
struction of the terms of Hie existing treaty
bo reached by mutual consent , to be can led
out infoi many until a more permanent tin-
deistandliig Le ic.iched.

ment contiol of a RJ btein o ( telcgiaph lines
Intends to begin at the opening of congress
nuxtjc.u a sjbtematlc move for the passage
of Ids bill on the subject , which will un
doubtedly be successful. Since the Introduce
tion of Ills lull In tlm senate , tnreo or four
jears niro , Senator Kdiniindg has iinulo ex
tensive reseaielies as to thu possibility of n
pen eminent telegraph sjstcm and thu justlco
to tlio people such ; i pioposltlon alfords. The
most toimidablo aignmunt that has bean pre
sented against his bill is that the government
lias no business 01 right with t > nch matters ;
that a citering to tlio public of this character
belongs sololv to private corporations , boil-
aloi Ldmunifs will piosunt an array of Bins-
tiatlons drawn from other countries and
arguments upon existing facia , in these
lines In tlio United Slates , which will com
pletely annihilate opposition. The impres
sion ntevails that n postal telegiaph bill con
templating either the pmchaso 01 the con-
sti uction of u complete system of lines , w 111
lo pissed during thu Hist four months of the
'next bi-sslon ofconciess.
It is said to bu becrutarj Whllnej's design
lo have the woik upon the now cruisers suf
ficiently advanced \vhou congress meets a
joar hence , to make such a showing of thci
aichitccturc of the ships and their cost and
the further needs of the navy i > 3 to secure a
ptopornppiopilation to put the goveinment
navy yards , in condition to begin the con
struction or another naval fleet. This con
templates eight or ten jear 'work , and the
outlay of anyvvheio hour thirty to forty
million dollars. rl lubuildlng ! of tlm ships
no\v about to bo begun Is retarded us nn
exppriment for tlio purpose .of asceitiiinhiB
jiibt what IH need. It Is also for the purpose
of L'iving Ameilcan shipbuilders an oppor
tunity to wo what thej can do and to develop
domestic materials. *
The beginning of naval leconstruction , the
lostoiatton and onlaigcmcut of gov en union t
navy vuids , and development of private Bhlp
j'.uds and domestic materials , will of course
iignroproinincutlv in tliu ciuipalgn of 18Hf.
Therclore the call lei an appiopriation to
begin this work will elicit a great deal of
political debate , and will , if In. fact It comes
up next winter , be the opening gun of the
nextcimpilgn , and may have as mucn to do
with developing the picsldcnllal candldato
as anything else- .

Bayno s.ivs heiloes not think theio will bo

legislation , whntcvei theio Is ol it , will oo
enacted by the Fittietli congress. Hu says It
will piobahlv consist ot repealing the tax on
domestic tobacco and the duty on siu.tr.
This would lednco the revenue ol the gov
