What la Thought of It by the Coiumit
trt and by Morgan, Who la In Opposi
tion Argument That the t lay ton-Bul-
wer Treaty Is Voidable by tbe I'nited

Washington, March 10. The Hay
Tauncefote treaty bus been amended
by the' senate forcigu relations com
mittee, which has agreed to report it in
Its amended form, Morgan alone dis
senting and making a minority report
The following is the text of the
amendment to tbe treaty: "Insert at
the end of section 5 of article two the
following: It is agreed, however, that
none of the Immediately foregoiug con
ditions and stitpuations iu sections
No. 1. 2, 3. 4, 5 of this act. shall apply
to measures which the United States
may lind it necessary to tala for secur
ing by its own forces the defense of
the United States and the mainten
ance of public order.'" The amend
ment is declared to be similar to a pro
vision in the Suez canal treaty, a dccla
ration that Morgan controverts in liis
Argument of the Committee.
The committee says on this point:
fIn principle the same reason which
justified article ten in the treaty of
Constantinople requires that its enuiv
Blent shall be Included iu the pending
treaty. If it wiw proper that the treaty
Of Constantinople should not Interfere
with the measures which the sultan
nnd khedive "might lind it necessary
to take for securing by their own forces
the defense of l'gypt and the main
teuace of public order; or if It was
proier that the provision of the cnuni
eratel articles or that treaty should iu
110. case occasion any obstacle to the
measure wnicn in. imperial t'uoman
government may think it necessary to
take iu order to Insure by Its own
forces the defense of its own IN!.
siolis situated oil the astern coast of
the Bed sea' surely ihe situation of
the United States on both oceuas and
as to territory to be occmnetl uy tin
canal itself, requires nhe incorporation
into tin pending convention of stipula
lions euuivalciu to those iu article ten
of the convention of Constantinople.
Treaty Should lie Amended Anyhow.
The committee .concludes its r.foiil
luendaliolis by quoting its proiiosed
amendment, remarking as follows: "Ir-
resiMetive of tin foregoing considera
tions v.'p are clearly of the opinion that
if article ten did not exist the true in
terests and necessity of the United
Slates require upon the highest con
siderations of prudence ami right the
adoption of the amendment proposed.
MO ICG AN OITOSKS A3IEXDMEXI.
Thiukt the Treaty la About Might
In his minority reinna Morgan an
nounces his concurrence in the main
report. Inferring to the history of
the t'laytou-Bulwer treaty Morgau
says that "the extreme contention of
the tfoverumeut of the United States
has been that the Clayon-Bulwer
treaty is violable at our option. Not
having exercised that opt ion. the treaty
is confessedly conclusive as to the
parts of the agreenieut that have been
executed, aud is operative as to the
parts that remain unexecuted."
ihe senator then takes up specific
ally the proposed amendment, saying
'But the committee insists that under
articles ! and lo of the treaty of Con
stantinople a provision Is made In fa
vor of turkey that is not secured to
the United States in the convention.
If we had a liossession that
corresponded iu its geography with
the Ked Sea on the western coast of
Arabia the force of the proiiosed
amendment would be more apparent.
But we have no such iossession in or
near Nicaragua, and have no need to
reserve a sicial right to defend It or
any either possession. Turkey made
no reservation of a right to defend
Constantinople when she reserved the
right to defend her .-oast on the Red
Sea, which is an approach to the ca
"The only legal effect of the amend
ment if it can have any effect upon
our national rights or imwers Is to
annul the neutralization of the canal
provided for iu article '2 of the treaty
under consideration. If this is its pur
pose it would be more satisfactory to
strike out that article aud declare the
abrogation of the unexecuted parts of
tbe Claytou-Bulwer treaty.
The minority report deals at length
with the contention that the Clayton
Bulwer treaty is voidable bv the Unit
ed States because it has been violated
by tireat Britain and the committee is
unanimous In negativing this propo
sition. This part of the report says:
The only objections that have been
urged by the United States have not
related to the treaty as a binding com
pact, but to the conduct of tireat
Britain in executing its terms and in
refusing to abandon certain islands
and coast possessions which she
laimed were not held after the date
of the treaty in violation of its terms.
' But we have a more couipul
nry reason, one that involves our due
resiect for the history of our own
country, for ceasing to bring into fur
ther discussion the questions of good
faith on the part of Creat Britain In
the execution of the stipulations and
the purioses of the Clayton-Bulwer
This reason is found in the ratifica
tion of the treaties of 1 .. referring
to which the etiruniittee says: "Con-
press expressed no dissent to them, or
to the president's declaration that 'the
dangerous questions arising from the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty have lieen
amicably settled. . We can not now
aaserV to the contrary, and for the
Eargpse of abrogating, that treat -re
cannot rasist that tnose-o.'ttes'llbus are
"The question Is hna voidable' that
the government of the I'nited States
acknowledged, in 18j0. that the Clay-ton-Bulwer

Mrs. J. P. Newman In one of her
sketches of travel. The life of the
founder of the greatest bell of China
had been threatened by the emperor
because of his unsuccessful attempts
to make a bell having perfect purity
of tone. The bell founder's beautiful
daughter, witnessing her father's
agony while imploring the emperor for
one more trial, consulted the gods as
to the reason for failure. Being told
(bat should the blood of a fair maiden
mingle with the bell metal the result
would be secured, sbe, waiting beside
her father until able to see her face In

the Chinese attribute the beauty and
