POINTS THAT ARE IRRECONCILABLE
As to Date of Going into Effect Has
to Itun the Gauntlet of
Washington, March 21. From such
imperfect readings of the Cuban treaty
as can be had at this stage the stare
department officials have some doubt
as to their ability to do anything what
ever with the convention. The amend
ments made by the senate, particular
ly that added to the ratifying article
though probably not so Intended
may result hi the complete loss of
the treaty. There are conrliclingclauses
which it may not be possible to recon
cile. Article 11 provided originally
that the treaty should go into effect
on the tenth day after exchange of
ratifications, which, was to be before
Jan. yi last. Rut this date was
changed to March 31, and that is how
the article stood when the senate add
ed this sentence: "This treaty shall
not take effect until the same shall
have loen approved by the congress."
Last Stipulation Must Govern.
This led o complications which are
now vexing the department. Here
were two different dates fixed in the
same article tor the taking effect or
the treaty. The weight of opinion in
clines to the belief that following the
common law principle the last stipula
tion should govern, which would defer
the operation. of the treaty until aft
er the congress acted.
Document Not a Treaty Yet.
Rut a more serious diiliculty has
been pointed out as follows: It is
hardly regarded as feasible, and is
certainly in violation of precedent, to
exchange ratifications of a document
which is not a treaty, as this Cuban
convention will not le in the opin
ion of some of the state department
people until "the congress" has set
its approval upon it. If this view is
correct then the exchange of ratifi
cations will have to lo deferred until
next winter at the earliest, and this
delay, it is thought, would cause the
failure, of the treat- in its present
form, because of the Inability of the
negotiators to meet the requirement
of article 11. which demands that the
exchange take place Irefore March 31.
May Kind a Way Oat.
It Is possible that a way will bo
found out of this webbof contrarieties,
and to that ei.d the state department
people now ;;re working. The Cuban
mintister here evidently is dismayed
at the situation, and although he made
every effort in his power to keep the
facts from attracting attention they
developed fully yesterday, even to fhe
knowledge of his immediate compli
ance with the state department's sug
gestion that he cable President Talma
suggesting an immediate calling to

is now In recess.

unanimous on this judgment, all seven
of the judges concurring.
Origin of the Case,
The decision against the packers is

trust laws of the state in combining
to maintain prices in Missouri. Tlie
result of the hearing led Attorney ( en
oral Crow to tile suit against the pack

by him on the part of the state.
I'lth of the Court's Opinion.
T" opinion holds that the evidence
obtained at ihe hearings shows conclu
sively that there was a combination
of the packers to maintain trust prices
on leef in Missouri: that the repre
sentatives of the packers met on cer
tain days to lix the prices for that
week: that rebating was done: that
the same prices prevailed at all of Die
coolers at the same time: that no coin

the packers because the combine

Testimony as to Had Meat.
The opinion does not take up the
charge made in the proceedings by the
attorney general that the companies
were also guilty of selling diseased
meat. Much of the evidence was to the
effect that the companies did sell dis
eased meat, but the opinion of the
court was based on the violation of
the anti-trust law of the state.

"and I susjwet the same woman now
