Washington, Dec. 81.?The new treaty
between the United Stales an.1 Grea:
Britain, by which all differences lietween
the two countries for Ike next, live years
are io be referred to arbitration will not be
signed at present. Mr. Ohieyand Sir Julian
Paunccfbte closed the negotiations aboui
I seventeen days ago and tue final draft war
made and forwarded to Lord. Salisbury.
As it embodied all t!?; features which
had 1 eon agreed upon duriug the negotia?
tions, no doubt was felt that a speedy r.p
proval would be given by Lord Sdisbun
j and that the signature to the hsiramen
I thereupon would be affixed at Washington.
It wascxpecte 1 that the document would
be tinned coincident with the new year,
but this expectation will not be realized
and the signatures, it is stated, cannot pos?
sibly be affixed before the end of m >:?
month. The cause- for ti:c ilelay cannot
be stated, but they are sufficient to dcfei
the consumalion of the freaty. In tin
meantime there is no r. a-on to believ?
that the prospectrf of ultiiunte agreement
are !c-s favorable than they have 1 ecu,
the delay doubtl's* being due to some un?
essential question, us there is complete
understanding on all material questions.

Felt and velvet are, ns usual, the : op
ular materials far laic autumnntui v. in?
ter hats. There are also hats made ol
fine fabrics of various M:::!s, embroid?
ered, braided or crimped; and there are
a few stamped and printed l.ats, seme
what eccentric, anil cojt altogether so
becoming as the conservative mind
might desire.
It can scarcely be said that any one
style^revaUs beyond another, except
that crowns are moderately low, and
brims moderately wide.
Given this state of things, and such
infinite variety prevails In the make-up,
the material, the trimming and the
general effect that almost every hat
turned out by a stylish designer is a
type in itself. The one (hir.g to keep
in mind is to make the headgear, what?
ever styl; and material may be selected,
becoming and comfortable.
Cuus^al care is being taken in the
latter item, as an uncomfortable fiat is
not conducive cither to happiness or
good 1jo!:k. It is the aim of the artist
to make a hat ligbt, and .so adjust it to
the head Unit its presence is r-.ot a con
| "?iisc.i.l reminder and a discomfort as
j -veil.
A great cany round hats with rather
i iow eiov.na are worn, 'i'bc fell in these
Miai.cs serves merely as a basis for the
arrangement of trimmings more or less
elaborate. One hat is cf felt, with a
velvet facing. The trimming is of a
scarf of velvet, something more than a
quailcr cf a yard wide. This is put on
in loops, rolb- and puffs, and very large
velvet rooes are pressed closely into
the .spaces between the loops; a heron
aigrette stands up ut one side Another
hat has a rather narrow brim antl low
crown. A mass of loops and puffs cf
spotted velvet is arranged so as almost
to cover the crown. Between the velvet
and the brim arc plaiticgs of lace; un?
derneath there 13 a crimped niching ol
chiffon. An untrimmed hat is made of
broadcloth. The brim is of plaited
stripes of the cloth; the crown Is iu
.Tarn O'Shantcr fashion. This is to be
trimmed with a scarf, n few roses ami
an aigrette or a bunch of est: ich plumes.
An Bcglish bat lias a rather wide, stilT
brim and a crown Umt flares toward the
upper part in the bhaps of a funnel.
The space between tl^e top of the crown
and the brim is to be entirely filled in
with trimming. A dressy hat of felt
haa a brim made of gimp. The crown is
Tarn Ot?hanfer shape and is edged with
gimp. The trimming for thia is a silk
scarf and a number of quills.
A novelty hat has the crown made
entirely of gimp, w ith a brim of plaited
velvet edged with gimp. This is to be
trimmed with roses, lace and aigrettes.
A round hat of velvet has the crown
and brim concealed by lace in soft plaits
and puffs. A large bunch of ostrich
plumes stands up from the back. An
English walking-hat cf felt haa the
.brim bound with velvet. The triru
Tning is a large Ixjw of vclvci, with a
[gold buckle. Birds-of-l'aradise feath?
ers finish the side. A velvet hat has a
crown of ont phade and the brim of
.another. The upper and low er edges of
