K. Purpose to Coerce the Colony Stataa
or the Case.
Lfvi)os, March 25 The Hon. W. H.
S.iiith, in receiving a deputation of mer".
chants and other interested in New
foundland, repudiated in b.-half of the
government any purpose to coerce that
colony. "We are bound by treaties," he
said, -and when I he other party holds
Views on the subject of the treaty engage
ments so strongly as France does, there is
no other alternative from abitratiou but
war. If the Newfoundlanders think the
terms of arbitration injurious, the gov
ernment is ready to, hear their views, but
it must be remembered Ihat the conditions
ivere impai te I to the colony before being
agreed to by the imperial government."
A Modus Vivendi Necessary.
K-eferriug to the necessity of a modus
y.yendi in view of the approach of the
fishing season. Smith said that a most
inflammatory document had been circu
ited on the west coast of Newfoundland,
a document which was likely to seriou
y imperil the peace of the empire. This
showed the urgency of the case, uud the
danger to winch the colony was exposed
by resistance to an arrangement directed
solely to securing tb interests of the
Newfoundlanders. The imperial party
must injure the performance of treaty
obligations by the local legislature.
What the Row Is About.
Notk. The issue in this matter is as
follows: The colonists demand that the
trench colony of lobster fishermen be
ejected. But the French lobster fishers
have peaceful occupancy guaranteed to
them by the Kuglish under the treaty of
lit 3. which was signed Ht Paris. Salisbury
holds that the responsibility of the gov
ernment :,ii- the observance of the
treaty is not removed by the fact
of England having grauted selt'-govem-11114
powers to the colony. It is also
in honor bound to go to war to defend the
colonists in cise they should be attacked
by France, or any other country. The
only alternative would be to surrender
all claim to connection with the island,
but even t hat would uot cancel its obliga
tion to France under the treaty, unless
the latter power should consent to have it
