lllctliiff ItulhiRH About the Cl ium
of thu Treaty of 1817.
Washinoten, April 0. In the year
1817, following the war of 18W, the
United States made a treaty with Great
Hritaln, by which it was mutually
agreed that each of these nations should
be entitled te maintain en the great
lakes forming part of the beundaty be
tween the United States and the Pro
vinces, dependencies of Great Hritaln,
four armed schooners and no mere.
This treaty was subsequently modified

of specified armament.
The marvelous growth of tills country
and the building up of populous cities
en our side of the beundaiy, far In ex
cess 0 the growth of cities en the Cana
dian bide, In later years caused the in
equity of thispriniltlvG treaty te become
se clearly apparent that the congress of
the United States, by formal enactment
en February 0, 1S05, dcelared the ticaly,
se far as It applied te limiting the num
ber of wur vessels en the great lakes, te
be abrogated, and thenceforth null and
Shortly after this, however, and, It is
claimed, through no warrant of law or
custom and against thelhnitatlonsef the
constitution of the United States, Mt.
V. .II. Seward, then secrctrary of state,
sought by agreement with the Ilritish
"minister, te rehabilitate the abrogated
treaty. Ily reason of this, as it is
claimed, illegal agreement of
the secretary of state, It has 'been
recently ruled by a department "here,
that it was lllcg-1 for the grca.1 ship-
"building interests en the great lakes te

they were te be ttsed en the high setls,
and net en the great lanes. 1 lie sonc-Iter-genenil

should have an opportunity new te bid

and later, when the canals coa cea

and it 1ms at last aroused the people te
