Wnashlngton, Dec. 11.-The arrange
ment entered into at Managua Monday
between lUlitecd State Minister Mer

pritticol andt not strictly speaking a
treaty. It is In effect a definition, in
advance of the character of the treaty
tlfat Nicaragua was willing to enter
into with the United States in the
event of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty be
ing ratified by the United States and
Great Blritain. There are supposed to
be legal reasons why the treaty, pur,
and simple, could not be entered Into
between the United States and Nlcar
agua in advance of the consummation
of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty. A sim
liar arrangement has been or will be
made with thile government of Costa

that part of San Juan rfver essential

Hoot's Phlltpplve BI11.
Washington, Dec. 11.- Secretary
Root, with his advisers in the war de
partment is preparing a bill which he
expects to submit to congress in a day
or two fixing duties for the Philippines
to meet the supreme court's decision.
The latest phase requiring considera
tion is the application of the drawback
laws to trade between the Philippines
and the United tSates.
It is expected that any tariff arrange
ment made will include provision for
the payment of the drawback on any
goods imported into the United States
and exported to the Philippines. It
is also the purpose to provide fr the
remission of internal revenue taxes on
goods otherw.lse liable to such tax but
exported to the Philippines. The ofii
clal opinion at the war departmrent is
strongly adverse to the proposition
which has been broached by sonic lte
publican membllers of congress to frame
a new tariff schedule for the Philip
