ON FISH OISP
Uncle Sam's and John Bull's
Century Old Trouble Settled.
WITH AID OF HAGUE TRIBUNAL
Newfoundland Fishing Banks Havo
Been In Dispute Between the Two
English Speaking Nations Sinco the
War of 1812 Bryce'3 Mission to
Diplomatic courtesies exchanged be
tween Secretary of Stale Knox and
Ambassador llryce In Washington this
week mark the oilicial end of the een-1
tury old dispute between (treat Britain
and the United States as to their re
spective rights on the Newfoundland
lulling banks. This is tlx llnnl ratifica
tion of the award of The IIncuo tribu
nal, 1010, when the differences of the
two countries were submitted to inter
Ambassador I'.ryce was chosen to rep
resent Ids country hero In view of his
particular fitness to handle the ques
tion. The Newfoundland flshins bank---have
been a boue of contention ever
since their discovery by the French in
MOT. Friction between the French
and Knglish over fishinir lights was
settled by the treaty of Ftrecht In 17K5.
which gave England sovereignty over
the entire territory. America's rights
to fish along the Grand Hanks and the
Canadian, including the Newfoundland,
coast were recognized nt the close of
our war of independence by the treaty
The war of 1S12 terminated this
treaty, and Immediately nrose disputes
that were not settled until 1S1S, when
the treaty of Ghent was signed.
Abrogated Twelve Year Treaties.
Tlie twelve year treaties of 1S."4 and
1S71 were In each case abrogated by
the United States at tho end of their
term. Canadian statesmen several
times made pllprlmages to Washing
ton, hoping to be able to secure recip
rocal agreements, but their missions
were In vnin. Tho Bayard-Chnmber-lain
treaty, which mot Canadian ap
proval In 1SSS while our senate refused
to ratify it, was in certain Important
features In accordance with the award
finally made by The Hague tribunal.
In 1005 our senate refused to accept
the terms of the Hond-Uny convention.
In retaliation Premier Bond of Canada,
who had been pushing the treaty, in
itiated a crusade against American
winter berring fishing as part of n cam
paign to compel tariff concessions by
the American government to New
foundland on the ground that It was
not a flshory but a trade operation.
Since herring brought into Gloucester,
Mass., on American ships came in duty
free while Newfoundland fishermen In
British vessels had to pay a heavy duty
It came to be the custom for American
vessels to visit the Newfoundland coast
and purchaso their cargoes of herring
from the resident fishermen who act
ually caught them and were glad to sell
them to American craft as a matter of
ordinary commerce. After this there
was more friction than ever until tho
matter was submitted to The Ilague
tribunal In tho form of bcvcii questions.
Unole Sam's Contentions.
Tho Important contentions of the
United States were the following:
First American fishing rights under
tho treaty of Ohont were not subject to
regulation by Grot Britain, Canada or
Newfoundland ns to hours, days and
seasons when fish might be taken on
the treaty coasts, or tho method, means
and Impleinonta employed In taking
fish, unless the reasonable and neces
sary nature of such regulations had al
ready been passed upon by both gov
ernments. Second. American vessels In tho ex
ecution of fishing rights may employ ns
members of tho crew persons not in
habitants of the United States.
Third. American fishing vessels can
not bo subject to tho requirements of
entry or reporting nt the custom house
or the payment of light or harbor dues.
Tho decisions of tho Hague Judges
gnvo concessions to both sides. They
found that Great Britain has the right
to mnko regulations over the fishing
banks to which tho United States has
access by tho treaty of 1818, without
tho consent of the United States and
that such right is Inherent In her sov
ereignty. Future Regulations.
But to insure tho Justness of such
regulations tho tribunal recommended
tho appointment of fishery experts to
determine the Justlco of all existing
regulations and of a permanent com
mission representing both countries to
arbitrate all futnro regulations which
might bo called In question.
The question of natural bays and
the limits of tho three mllo line, be
yond which American (lelionnen may
not venture along certain coasts, was
decided In favor of Great Britain. It
was hold that tho line docs not follow
tho contour of tho shoro, bnt Is a line
drawn across all bays where they
cease to bo bays, limiting this measure
to bays with outlets less than ton
miles across, excopt In cortaln In
stances, called "historical bays."
Tho United States eeenred the rights
to employ foreigners on her Ashing
boats with the underetandlnif that for
eigners io employed woro not subject
to tho immunities of tho treaty.
WHAT A BIG RAILROAD
STRIKE WOULD MEAN.
Board of Arbitration Givos Impressive
Figures In Engineers Cnso,
The 30,000 locomotive engineers of
tho eastern railroads have won their
fight for nn Increase In wages. While
tho board of arbitration between the
railroads and flic engineers in its
nward does not grant all of tho engi
neers' demands. It establishes mini
mum wages which amount to a sub
stantial increase- on most of the roads.
Notwithstanding tho Increase in com
pensation the lepresentatlve of the
engineers on the board dissents from
tlie nward and says the settlement ac
cepted by It can be only temporary.
The board tries to impress upon tlie
public the seriousness of tho situation
that would have confronted this coun
try If the engineers had acted ns they
voted and quit work. Tlie railroads In
volved in the controversy, it Is pointed
out. operate (Ul.STG miles of track, or
more than one-fourth of the total mile
age of American railroads.
Their annual operating revenues ex
ceed $1,000,000,000. or nearly -10 per
cent of the total for nil the railroads of
the country. They carry nearly one
half of tlie freight traffic of the Fulled
States and over two-fifths of tlie pas
senger traffic. Excluding general offi
cers, the annual payroll of tlie employ
ees amounts to SI 1(1.000,000 and the an
nual compensation of tiro engineers
alone to nearly $.18,000,000. The popu
lation of a great area of tho country
served by these roads Is about .17,000.
000, or more than -iO per cent of tlie
total population of tlie country. The
section of the country represents at
least four-tenths of the wealth of the
entire United States.
The board points out, further, that a
strike would have left tlie large cities
of the east with their food supplies ex
hausted within a week. Tho milk sup
ply probably would not have lasted
more than a day. The board adds that
a successful general strike for tho east
ern district of the United States would
have put that great section of tlie coun
try In much the same situation that
confronted Franco n few years ago dur
ing a general railroad strike there.
"It Is evident," says the board, "that
for a great section of the United States
a railroad strike can no longer be con
sidered ns a niater which primarily
affects the railroads, operators and em
ployees. It Is therefore Imperative that
some other way be found to settle dif
ferences between railroads and their
employees than by strikes."
NEW SECRET OF THE AIR.
Expert Discovers How Birds Remain
Motionless In Air Currents.
An Important advance Is considered
to have been made In the science of
aviation by Joseph CouBin, who for
some time past lias been recognized as
as eminent French authority on the
laws of flight and now asserts that he
has discovered a hitherto unknown
law, which he calls that of "presenta
tion." This, ho declares, is nn essential,
although hitherto unsuspected, prin
ciple In the motion of nny body In a
fluid medium, such as a bird In the air
or a fish In water, and It explains the
problem of how birds remain motion
less and stationary In n strong cur
rent of air and nlso fly at a very high
speed with n small expenditure of en
ergy. "Presentation," he says, consists of
special adaptation both in the form of
a flying body nnd the manner In which
it is offered to the direction of the cur
rent. It acts by causing tho fluid me
dium to form a counter pressure be
hind the body actually stronger than
that opposed to It In front, thus enor
mously assisting tho progress of the
"Once this prlnclplo of tho forma
tion of a counter pressure by guiding
nnd directing the air current shall be
fully recognized and applied in tho
construction of aeroplanes," says M.
Cousin, "tho result will bo almost per

Such an event occurred In a botan

tree was wreathed with golden dust
formed of the debris of the flower.
The sun's heat had roasted the llower
