fine here to her room lliero were however
rumors widely circulated to tho cflcit that tho
marriage settlements as proposed wero not satis

Bud of the Discussion Between the Secre
tary of State and Lord Granville
Tho last letter of Secretary Krellnghuyson to
Minister Lowell ending tho discussion of tho
Claytoii Ilulwcr treaty has Just been mado public
The secretary says that he still considers the troaty
voldable first because tho first seven articles
of the treaty relate to a particular canal by tho
Nlcaraguan route only and secondly becausu the
British government has now a colony Instead of a
settlement at Bollre Ho also statos that ths
government was willing to surrondor a part of Us
excluslo privileges In order to obtain capital
lor building the canal and was willing to
unlto with England in protecting it but
after the lapio of thirty three years wltto it any
thing having been done by Great Billalu toward
building tho canal It Is right to assume that tbo
consideration for which the treaty was mado has
railed By the terms or tho treaty neither
government was permitted to colonize
or oxcrctse any dominion over any part or
Central America yet Oreat Britain has estab
lished a colony thero s largo s thtee or our
smaller states with a regular colonial govern
ment Tho color for Iho claim that this Is not a
violation or the treaty Is a declaration mado
by Sir Heury Bulwor before thu treaty was
ratlfiod that the British settlements at Honduras
or its dependencies were not Included Tho sec
retary understands this to apply only to it British
rotllemcnt made at Honduras undor
sovereignty lor tho purpose of
cutting logwood and mahosany and not to such
a colony as now exists The secretary holds that
tho Mouroo doctrine Is not aflbcted by the fact
that a treaty modifying that doctrluo has fallou
