Washington, Deo. 5. Russia will
not grant to the American Jew the
right freely to enter and travel
within its dominions. Russia has
notified the United States that It will
accept the abrogation of the treaty
of 18S1 rather than accord this priv
Thus for the moment have ended
the negotiations which, It develop
ed here, were Initiated by Secre
tary of State Knox, as a result of
popular agitation, for the purpose of
removing the discrimination Impos
ed by the Russian government upon
this section of the American people.
The administration, as far as it
has dealt with, the matter, feels It
would be unwise for the general
public interests to abrogate the
treaty. Taking into consideration the
large commercial Interests of the
United States and Russia, the neces
sity of maintaining friendly rela
tions with the Russian government
in view of the Chinese "situation and
the desirability of such relations be
cause of other existing diplomatic
matters, the president and the sec
retary of state are disposed to let
the question rest until a more favor
able opportunity arises for the ap
plication of pressure.
HOUSE MAY TAKE ACTIO.
Congress Is not likely, however,
to be qiilescent. There is a strong
sentiment, particularly in the house
of representatives, to adopt a reso
lution directing the president to de
nounce the Russian treaty. Such a
resolution if passed undoubtedly
would be stifled by the senate and
if it reached the president probably
it would be vetoed.
The exact character of the repre
sentations made to Russia by this
government through Ambassador
Guild cannot be learned; but in a
general way it is known that it was
proposed to amend the treaty of
1832 so as to prevent future dis
crimination against Americans, no
matter what their race or religion,
in the matter of entering and trav
eling in the Russian empire.
ARTICLE IN QUESTION.
The article of the treaty toward
which the attention of the Russian
government was directed is as follows:
There shail be between the terri
tories of the high contracting par
ties a reciprocal liberty of com
merce and navigation. The inhabi
tants of their respective states shall
mutualy have liberty to enter the
ports, places and rivers of the ter
ritories of each party wherever for
eign commerce is permitted. They
shall be at liberty to sojourn and
reside in all parts whatsoever of said
territories in order to attend to their
affairs and they shall enjoy to that
effect the same security and protec
tion as natives of the country where
in they reside, on condition of their
submitting to the laws and ordi
nances there prevailing and particu
larly to the regulations in force con
The Russian government holds
that the freedom of admission and
Bojourn granted by the above ar
ticle is limited Dy tne clause "on
condition of their submitting to the
laws and ordinances there prevail
ing." In other words, the regula
tions and restrictions imposed upon
Jews in Russia must apply to Amer
ican Jews. But it Is contended by
experts in International law that the
provision upon which Russia relies
relates to residence in Russia ant'
not to admission and travel.
"The inhabitants of their respect
ive states," says the article, "shall
mutually have liberty to enter the
ports, places and rivers of the ter
ritories of each party wherever for
eign commerce is permitted.
LIBERTY OF RESIDENCES.
It is further provided that "they
shall be at liberty to sojourn and
reside in all parts whatsoever of
said territories In order to attend
to their affairs." In so doing they
shall be subject to the laws and or
