THATOANAL TREATY.
The treaty dealings with Great
Britain have become so complicated
that the busy man and reader of
average intelligence has not had the
time or inclination to grapple with
the question. Yet it is one of so
grave importance to this country
that the U.S. Senate is giving it
days of serious consideration, and
the whole of English political circle?
it watching the termination with al?
most breathless interest. As the
?object is one over which there is like
ly yet to be great diplomatic trouble
every ready should have more than
a superficial understanding of the
?nbjeet, so we will endeavor to place
it in a simple and intelligent light to
oar readers, at the same time being
brief.
Previous to the past year the only
treaty between Great Britain
and this government, touching upon
the subject of an isthmian canal was
the old one known as the Clayton
Balwer treaty. During the year our
Secretary, Hay, and the English
minister, Pauncef )te, drafted a new
treaty to supplant the old one, and it
is this new treaty which is now be
ing so mercilessly boffetted by a Rt
publican Senate.
The following will show the dif?
ference between the Olayton-Bulwer
and the Hay-Pauncefote treaties upon
the oanal snbjeot ;
Clayton-Bol wer 1 Hay Treaty.

completed they will

to protect it against
lawlessness and dis?
order.
There is a great contention, and
with sincere honesty a difference of
opinion as to the binding qualities of
the old treaty, some contending that
Great Britain has upon numerous
occasions broken the terms of it,and;
therefore, it is no longer binding up.
on us. The Hay treaty does not
seem to meet with any more favor at
the hands of those who take this
view, and they have already mutila*
ted it considerably in the Senate. The
chances are that Great Britain will
not accept it in the shape in which
it will come from the Senate's hands
Nearly all agree, thongh, that Secre?
tary Hay was out-generaled in bis
negotiations with the British minister.
As much as The Free Lance de?
sires to see the isthmian canal con?
structed we do not think that the
United States should do the work and
then give to Great Britain and other
nations equal rights therein, loth
of the treaties seek to do this, and
it ii because of this that the Hay
treaty will not be ratified by the
. Senate in its original form. Nor are
we prepared to say that this govern?
ment should go ahead, construct and
fortify the oanal, nolens volens. To
do this latter would mean a throwing
of the gauntlet at the feet of not only
England but of the other Powers,too.
Thi Frki Lanc? has no case of
tremors when the lion.roars, nor yet
ii it at all inclined to Anglophobia,
bnt here an idea presents itself whioh
may have come to others, bnt we
have as yet seen no suggestion of it,
and that is to effect a new treaty with
England in whioh it is agreed that
inoaseof war with that country,
only, the oanal is to be considered
as nentral territory. We do not be?
lieve that we should ever be called
upon to earry out these terms, as the
time has passed when there is danger
of the two great Anglo-Saxon races
elashing. At the same time it will
encourage England to accept an
amended treaty and pave the way to a
construction of the water-way. Other?
wise we will have to deal independ?
ently with every power who may
declare Interest in the matter and
also enter into new negotiations with
Costa Riea and Nicaraugua with no
guarantee of a renewal of conces?
sions.

THE FARMER
The census returns relativo to ag?
riculture have not yet been tabulated
and published. Tue work i? of such
magnitude that it may be some time
before tho results become available.
These retaros will be of int?r?t to
the farmer?, acd doubtless they will
derive much valuable information
fr m them whon given to the public.
It is not premature, however, to
predict that the retorna will show
that farming has Dot kept pace with
the progress made in other branche"
of business, and the chief reason is
that farming is not as remunerative
as seme other industries.
Tuen, too, there seema to be a lack
of concert of action among this class
of our population. Mou engaged in
manufacturing or commercial enter?
prises of un combine for the purpose
of proniotimg their mutual interests,
but it seetns almost impossible for
farmers to combiue to accomplish
any desired policy. The result i8
that the other industries are often
successful in securing legislation
favorable to them while the poor
farmer is left to fight the battle of
life unaided and alone.
This is discouraging, and it is uot
surprising that young men of merit
forsake the farms and migrate to the
cities to seek their fortunes. With
the glittering inducements of a pros'
Porous city life before him the ener?
getic young man is not content with
a competency on the farm. The cen?
sos show stbat the cities are rapdly
being populated while there is a de?
cline in the rural districts; and the
most discouraging phase of the situ
tion is that this is true even in the
best and most prosperous agricul?
tural States?viz: the New Eagland
State?, New York and Pennsylvania.
The tide of population is sweeping
to the cities. Agriculture is being
neglected. Tnis is a deplorable con
ditloa of affairs. It must be reme?
died. How? is a serious and diflV
cult question. It is quite certain
that the Eastern farmers cannot
competo with the farmers of the
West in producing the staple crops
nor with the stock raisers on the
rich lands of the trane-Mississippi.
They must diversify their ciops and
improve their lands and change their
methods of cultivation. Our farmers
cannot continue cultivating their
worn-out lands with any degree of
success. There is money in farming on
rich 1 mds.and our farmers will never
better their condition uctil tbey de?
vote more time to the improvement
of their farms, and adopt the most
approved system of cultivation.
The population of this country is
steadily increasing and the farmers
would find profit in devoting more
attentiou to fruit raising and stock,
poultry, the dairy and the bee cul?
ture would prove sources of revenue
to the farmers. There is no prescrib?
ed rule, however, to suggest. One
thing is very evidtnt?the farmer
cannot lely any longer solely upon
wheat and corn. He must use
bis head as well as his mcecl", and
by so doing the industrious and in'
telligent farmer may discover many
ways to improve his condition.
The alleged hazing of Cadet Booz
at the West Point Military Academy,
which,it is paid,caused bis death, has
created quite a stir among the au'
thorities and the indications are tuat
the matter will be thoroughly sifted
It is high time that a stop sbonld be
put to such bestial barbarity which
is a blot upon civilization. This in?
humas act should be fully investi?
gated and the severest punishment
inflicted upon the participants if dis?
covered. Besides the disgrace of
such brutality all institutions of
learning where hazing is practiced
soffdt to some extent financially. We
trust the practice may be speedily ex?
terminated.
The drift of the hobo fraternity is
the Central Ameriea.Numbers of them
are said to be migrating there from
this country, and one good thing is
that once there they never get back
la Nicaragua and Costo Rico life is
said to be especially easy for an ablet
bodied man who possesses an aver?
sion to working and who is not par?
ticular about his environments. This,
of course, is a great inducement to
the hoboes, and numbers of them are
infesting those places. 0 ur riddance
is that country's burden.
The indications are that Uncle
Sam will have to send an entire fleet
to Turkey to gobble up that Arme?
nian indemnity.
Durino Xmas people should bear
in mind Sam Jones' famous remark :
"The only way to handle a demijohn
is to keep on the outside of it."
Great Britain is also in search of
a Christmas turkey. We advise her
to percolate her solicitations through
the foghorn of a battleship.
The little fellows are joyfully hop?
ing that "Santa" and "Kris" will
both make Xmas calls.
Some of the boys and girls will, ere
long, regret that they have outgrown
the Kris Kringle class.
