An appeal from this decision was taken to the Appellate Division, but no decision has as yet been rendered.

T., and staying tem porarlly in France. In granting the order to-day Justice Guy said: In view of the fact that tho Fed eral Court has held that a final Judg ment of a irencn court, even in a commercial case, is not conclusive but merely prima facie evidence of the merits, and that thore has apparently been no decision Dy our auue Appei' late Courts to tho contrary, the ques tlon Dresented on appeal from the order herein is of so novel a character that I am of the opinion tnls court not only has tho power to grant but Should grani a roaouuuuip uuutraoos for purposes or appeal."

Enough has transpired , within the last twonty-four hours to warrant a positive prediction that an , agreement will bo reached within an other week on the programme for a reduction of naval armament and a naval shipbuilding holiday. No longer ls there worry about tho outcome, prolonged as the debate may be. Fer the truth is the Japanese hand, has been disclosed. It Is the hand' of Old World diplomacy which rarely accepts anything right off tho bat but considers It carefully, asks for more, appears to he deeply In sistent on more concessions and, finally, wUb a gesture of generosity, recedes In the Interest of common agreement. For several days the views of Baron Kato, Minister of Marine, have been put In one form or another, giv ing tho Impression that Japan was adamant In her 'desire for a higher ratio than the so-called 5-6-2. Now comes Prince Tokugawa, the head of tho delegation, and In a talk with, newspaper men, lays stress on tne fact that Baron Kato was expressing his personal views. This, however, Isn't tho only basis for the idea that Japan ls prepared to make good Tier original acceptance of tho Hughes programme. There are other signs 'beneath the surface which lead to tho conclusion that Japan has decided sho cannot be responsible for tho breaking up of a naval arma ment agreement which the whole world hailed so auspiciously after the oDonlng session, Japan knows, in other words, that Great Britain Is ready to accept and will do so, and that even Franco wilt not quibble over the submarine tonnage figures. but will, at the psychological moment. withdraw her request for modifica tion. In the face of a European and American entente, Japan cannot afford to stand alone. She now knows the dangers which might ensue from too great lnsistenco on her own view point. She knows, for Instance, that Secretary Hughes ls not in a bargain ing mood, and that If Japan means to alter tho exlsUng strength of the American and Japanese Navies there win be no naval holiday and no reduc tion of armament.
