HIE VltACllCIS T US SET, Does the Treaty or 1817 Forbid Her Con. atructloa ett liny City I WuniriOTO!, Jnno 16. A ourlous point has been raised in regard to tho contraot for build ing the 800-ton praotlco vessel for tbo uss of the naval oadots at Annapolis. Tbo two bids are that ot Samuol L. Moore .t Sons ot Eliza bethport. Now Jersoy, and thatotF. V. Whoelor k Co. of Day City, Michigan. Tho latter Is tho lower by $5,000, so that presumably, if It is all right in other resnoots. it will bo successful. Hut tho suggoetlon has boon made that under the following provisions of the Itush.Uagot treaty of 1817, no suoh war vossol could bo rightfully built at Bay City: The natal fore to be maintained upon the American letea by hi. Maieity and the Government ot the United State, shall hencerorth be confined to the folio log e. i.l.on each.ldf. that III On Lake Ontario to one veaiet, not exceeding 100 ton. bnrden. and armed with one Impound cannon. On the upper lakt., to two veuela. not exceeding lite burden each, and armed with like force. On the water, of Lake Champlaln, to one yefteat, not leading like burden and armed with like force. All other armed reaaeta on the.e lake, .hall be forth, with dltmantted. and no other teuel. of war .hall then b built or armed. The limit of all vessels to 100 tons burdon nnd tho declaration that "no other vosboIs of war slfall thon bo built or nrmod " are stipulations. It Is urged, wbtch would be violated should a vessel of 800 tons bo built, carrying a mucn greater armament than Is thus provided for. A Uttlo examination, howovor, will show that tbo treaty Is concornod with " tho naval forco to bo malntalnod upon tho American lakes." not with shipping built thero for maintenance elsewhere Tho naval practice vessel Is not to bo maintained on the groat Inkos. but at Annnp oils. It has nothing whatever to do with tho Inko forco. yet tho words "no other osscls of war shall then bo built or armod" refer wholly to that force. I!e6ldes, tho treaty Is practically obsoloto. Tbo vessols it descrlbos belong to a bygono era, and already In substituting moro modern crnlt lor thorn no attompt has boon made to follow Its restrictions. Independently of the armed rovenuo cutters which patrol tbo lakos. tho Government has thero ono war vessel, tho Michigan, which Is ot 450 tons measuromont and GS5 tons displacement. Sho carrlos not ono gun, but four. Uenco, both In tonnage and armnment, sho contravenes tho treaty; yet nobody calls In question tho propriety of retaining hor thoro. Indoed. a momorlnl was recently sont to Congros from Chicago de claring that the Michigan will be a subject of derision among foreign nations when the World's Fair Is hold In that city, and anklnc to lmo hor replaced by a modern warve:sol. Tho fuct that during tho long Btay of tho Michigan on tho lakos no protoat to her pres ence hits been offered is a proof that the treaty stipulation Is practically obsolete, The Do minion does not maintain any vesselson the lakes, but It has taken caro lnstoad to so on jarge Its canals that they can admit to tho lakes British war vessels many times as large and poworful as the treaty speaks of. The treaty, moreover, provides that "If either party should horoafter bo doslrous of annulling this stipulation, and should glvo notice to that effect to tho other party. It will ceapo to bo binding nftar the expiration of six months from tho dato of suoh notice" Tho tlmo al lowed for tho completion of the practice vessel is two years from the signing of the contract. Our Govornmont. therefore, supposing that it should consider tho troatv to lntorfero with Its award of the contract to the Michigan bidders, would only need, on making that award, to servo a notice on tbo British Government that it desires to annul the treaty, and six months Irom that tlmo this lnstrumont would cease to be binding, nnd a year and a half would still remain before the completion ot tho vessel. It may bo worth considering whether the Gov ernment ought not to take this occasion for serving tho notice any way. Put upon the doublo ground that the Govornmont doslres not to bo dabnrred from making full uso of tbo shipbuilding facilities of the lake htates for its purposes, and also that it cannot consent. In replaolng existing vessels whloh havo bocoms unserviceable, to adODt craft of tho tpos coin mending themselves to the naval ideas of 1817, there would obviously be nothing unfriendly in the notice. But on theotber hand It may be more de sirable not to formally abrogate an ancient treaty stipulation, which Groat Britain cer tainly respects In her practical conduct by keeping no war vessels at all on the lakes. In that cose, the Government can rely on the fact that Its practlco vessel Is not to be malntalnod thero, although as a matter of courtesy, and to disarm suspicion. It could give notification ot the purpose ot building this armed vessel on the lakos. As to the future floating dofences of the Jakes, they mor take the form of torpedo boats. These could be built In any reoulred number and kept In ono of tho lakes ot Now York com municating with Lake Ontario. For the float ing defoncesof tho uppor lakos It would bo nrnetlcabln to nan finmn nf thn lArfrnar nn,i strongest merchant vessels, arming thorn with guns of sueh calibre as thoy could carry. Thoso vessels will Increase In numbers and availa bility. Iho firm of F. W. Wheoler .t Co., which, although long a constructor of wooden ves sels, set units Iron and steel shipbuilding plant loss than eighteen months ago, has al ready launched two steel stoamors and has three moro large ones on tho stocks. It Is a promising sign for tho naval resources of tho Govornmont in tho Northwost that a llrm in Mlchlgnn oan furnish a vossol like the ono re quired for tho Naval Academy. TBLEl'UOyH aiJILS DON'T LllitS IT, OolnK to See If tbo Factory Low Won't l'rotect Ubem from Hunday Work. Tho new feature of requiring somo of tho girls In iho tolephono exchanges to work on Bundnythe same ns any other day went Into effoot yestorday for the first tlmo. Tho Metro politan Telophono Company hsuod nnordoron Baturday roqulrlng a certain percentage of tbo girls to report at the various exchanges, ac cording to tho business roqulroments. It takes only ono-olgluh of tho fotco down town, butup town a quarter of tho forco is needed. Bo far as can bo learned, nothing was said to the girls about their compensation, or whotbor they wero to be paid nt all, but Inspector Bbor, wood says they will got extra pay. They have to work ton hours on wook days, which makos sixty hours a weok, tho limit of tlmo thnt women are ullowod to work In fac tories, according to law. If tho tolephono ex changes enn bo construod to como under thnt bead there may bo troublo, for tbo girls object to this enoroaohmont on tholr Bundny rost.
