meeting Ihe louucll plans to enter
upon consideration of one of tlm
most Important subjects with which
it has been charged under the trejtt
of pence, namely, tho constitution of
the permanent order of Inter national
Justice, The first meetliiK of the
eounoil held In Paris January Hi.
confined llelf to mutters of oripin
Izatlon necessary to meet contingen
oe that had arisen under tho
treaty, such us the appointment or
iho Sanr valley boundary commis
sion, which had to lie named ul hln
15 days after the ratification of Iho
'I'll Slart (oiitt.
It Is leat nod that the Inumhlng nf
the permaneiil court of In o iiatbiutu
Jiislh'e has been decided upon after
Kent hesitation, because this was ono
of the features of the pence pro

taken tho gieatost Interest, In fact
huWtiK oilgluatcd thu project as one
of tlie best means of preventing

It was to hove been considered nt

was postponed in order to utf.inl op

to act upon tho peace treaty end for
this nation to be In position to par
tlctpntn In the orgunlrntlon ot the

pointed out In the council's meetltlit,
had given this plan of settlement of
International dlsnutes Its orixlliul Im
petus nt the first and recond of Tho
Hague cotifeienccs and also the Lon

The ciniif'll. It is now learned, has
finally decided to go ahead with tho
plans already made by tlio tcciu
uirlat of the leaguo for luunchlng
tho court. Those plans. It Is known,
contemplate tin organizing cummlt

eminent Jurists In tho world to am

Instructions to tho American dele

All the plans laid principal stress
upon the method of the appointment
