at Lund and demanded that he hold up his

.LltGE THAT TREATY HAS SEEN VIOLATED
Fishing Smack la Slesed by Insnlnr
Anthorltlea, Ita Owners Helng
Charged mltn Shipping
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2u.-The State de
partment has received some hitter com
plaints from American owners of fishing
vessels against the Newfoundland officials
for Interfering with what they regard aa
thtlr treaty rights to fish within New
foundland territorial waters. Only a few
days since an American fishing smack waa
seized at a Newfoundland port. Several
months ago It had. it is alleged, shipped
some Newfoundlanders from the bay
Islands. The American ship owners felt
that this was an Infraction of their right
to play their vocation In these waters as
guaranted by treaty. '
The Stat department hag been exchang
ing notes on this subject with the British
government and ho far there has been no
friction between 'the two governments,
though natnratly tha American fishermen
nd tha local Newfoundland authorities
have at times shown some heat. The State
department has not . been able to make
direct issue with the Newfoundlanders In
respect to their rlsjit to 'make It a pun
ishable offense to ship Newfoundlanders
within their own waters. It Is not quite
clear, however, whether, while admitting
the right of the Newfoundland authorities
to punish their own people who ship on an
American vessel in violation of local law.
It is prepared to concur the amenability to
Newfoundland law of American skippers
who ship such men.
BRIEF 9RSMIOX OF Tlir. SENATE
Senator f'oraker Has Records Dhow
Argument Against Rate Bill.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 20-When the sen
ate met today Mr. Foraker obtained leave
to have printed the record In a number of j
caea recently before the Interstate Com- 1
merce commission Involving charges of
discrimination In beef Shipments. Ho said
that after taking cognisance of the cases j
the commission had not reached Its conclu- i
slon for Rlmost three years, whereas the
United States court for the northern dls-
trict of Illinois had taken the matter up '
and reached a final decision within five
or six month. - '
The matter had been introduced, he said,
for the purpose of showing that the ex-
Istlng law affords a remedy for many of
the evils of which complaint Is made and
also to show thftt there Is greater celerity
In the courts than In the Interstate Com
merce commission. The court had, hb said,
reversed the finding of the commission and j
ha said that If the commission's decision j
fiad gone Into Immediate effect the com
pany would have suffered a wrongful loss
it W.000,000. The senate went Into cxecu

Prof. Milukoff, leader of the constitu

daring his belief that it could not succeed
and inevitably would lead to repression and
perhaps to great bloodshed, which might

otherwise. Out don't think fur a moment
that we experience any alarm or anxiety.

"That la tbe position of Russia just now.
