The Senate today ratified the Hay

that has been in dispute for many
years. The American commis

territory in dispute uninterruptedly

Korea Seeking a Loan.
Brussels, March 5. Korea is
negotiating for a $30,000,000 loan.
Korean trade for the last two years
has been in a stagnant condition.
Famine has reduced a portion of
the population of the country to
dire straits. Foreign trade has
been slack owing chiefly to Korea's
poor system of finances. A recent
Korean consular report states that
the chief difficulty with which for
eign trade has to contend is the
disastrous condition of the currency
throughout the empire. The Ko
rean government, in defiance of the
first principles of sound finance, is
flooding the country with a nicke
coinage whose intrinsic value is
only one-eighteenth of its face value,
without any gold or silver reserve
with which to redeem it. As a
natural consequence these coins,
while under proper conditions
should be merely tokens, are at a
continually increasing rate of dis
count as against Japanese gold yen,
the recognized basis for calculation
of prices where foreign articles are
