CO., New York. alum ntlnllt-ralion common to the KOYAL BAKING POWDER MUST BE SETTLED Great Number of Serious Prob lems Handed Down to This Administration. Some of Them Have Been Pen& ing For Years, While Others Ale Fresh. Cuban Affair, Hawaiian Annexa tion, German Discrimination and a Few Others. WASHINGTON, March 6.—Probably never before in American history ha* an administration been obliged to face at the very beginning of its asnmption of power so many and important ques tions affecting the foreign relations of the United States as confront President McKinley and his premier, Secretary Sherman. All of these are important, and while some of them may be for a time kept in the background, others, and those of the utmost gravity, are likely to force them selves upon the at tention of the new administration in inch a persistent manner that they mu6t bo met promptly. In the list of cpen diplomatic issues are some old veterans, quostions that were running along in diplomatic time killing fashion when President Harrison turned over the helm of the ship of state to Presi dent Cleveland, but tho latter in his time, and with tho best of intentions and in spite of tho most heoric efforts, was obliged to add to the list and make new issues of his own that ho was un able to bring to a conclusion before ho in turn gave way to President Mc Kinley. Cnkan Question Foremost. Foremost and of the greatest interest to the people of tho United States, be causo of the strife that is being waged under their very eyes, is the subject of our relations towards Cuba. For over two y^ars the insurrection on the ever faithful isle has gone on and from the confusion of reports that reach the de partment of stato it is not possible to accurately and surely ascertain the ex act conditions of this struggle, which, a* President" Cleveland has stated in his messages to congress, has involved in itself interests of enormous valuo to citizens of the United States. It is un derstood to bo the policy of the new admiuintrataou to deal with this matter deliberately and not to undertake to depart from tho policy with which it has so far been treated until our more im])ortaut internal financial affairs are adjusted. But tho subject is of an ex plosive nature and it is not safe to pro diet that through some overt and out rageous act of a subordinate among either the Spanisn forces, or in the in surgent linos (something liko the Vir ginius affair for instance) tho adminis tration will not be forced to depart from its plans and directs attention at short notice to this dangerous subject. The llaw.l an Matter. One of the issues that has carried over from the Harrison administration, but which now stands in very different shape from that it held then, is the subject of Hawaiian annexation. Tho citizens of the little island republic have come to look upon the Republi cans as their friends, and made ready in advance for the inauguration of President McKinley, they havo begun a carefully prepared agitation to further their ends in Washington. They will seek, with tho aid of powerful friends in and out of congress, to induce the president to negotiate a now annexa tion treaty at the earliest possible mo ment, and while the desired annexa tion may bo attained in short order if the president approves, to so arrange the details of the transaction as to avoid raisiug unpleasant issuos with Great Britain* France and Japan, and losing all reputation for consistency, will re quire the exhibition of diplomacy of a high order. Relations With Bngland. With the mother country—England —our relations are so founded on reas ouable and mutual consideration, that there is no matter under consider which will Mrt jiald. the end, to the usual methods of treatment. This is fortunate for the welfare of both couqtries, as some of tho questions are of the greatest im portance and are easily capable, if treated in a harsh and uncompromising spirit, of becoming the sources of rap ture. Of such is the Alaskan boundary question, and the proposed extension of the regulations for the protection of the seals iii Behring sea, in tho former of which a treaty has been negotiated for the location of the 141st meridian, but leaving the most difficult phase, the drawing of the boundary line in the southeast, still subject to negotiations, of which some progress has been made. As to the protection of seal life in Behring sea, there are Bigns of unrest that indicato a necessity of early and decided action on the part of the state department. Backed by the highest kind of expert authority, Secretary Ol ney eaid at the close of his administration of tho stato de partment: "The fur seal herd is threatened with utter ruin un less some changes are speedily made in the award regulations." Yet he was unable to induce the British govern ment to make these, influenced as it was by a fear of the adverse effect upon the political status of British Columbia, the home of the seal pirates. As a senator, Mr. Sherman has clearly indi cated his wish for tho ratification of tho general arbitration treaty, and President McKinley'* inaugural ad dress leaves no room for doubt of the administration's policy. Mr. Sher man's senate record leaves no room to doubt that he will be found resisting gturdily all efforts to surrender our charge of Samoa under tho -tripartite alliance which it is certainly the wish of Germany, but not of Great Britain, t«» terminate. Tariff May t'ause a Storm. The final enactment of the now tariff bill may put a severe strain upon out relations with some of the great European powers, and flrst of all, with Germany. It is understood to be tho intention of congress to provide for ac tive retaliation upon the nations that have so unjustly barred American meat products from their markets, and among these, Germany is the chief of fender. Complaints of the unwholesomeness of our meats have been responded to by the United States by the establish ment of the most rigid system of in •pection, and our challenges to pro due 3 evidence of the charges have re sulted in miserable failure on tho part of tho accusers to mako their charges good. A long series of consular re ports make clear the fact that these charges are but subterfuges and that the real purpose is to exclude not only American, meats, but any and all American products that threaten to compete with German and French and Bclgiau and Dutch agricul tural or industrial products. WcroN this sought to be accomplished openly by a tariff so high as to bo exclusive tho United States could not complain, for it might respond in kind, but, JIS now applied, the prohibitive rules ore clearly an unjust discrimination. Secretary Olnoy also left to his suc cessor as an unpleasant legacy, the ne gotiations looking to an abatement of the restrictive regulations which havo choked the life out of the American insurance companies, seeking to con tinue the profitable business they had built up with Germany. What Secre tary Sherman wiU do in this matter cannot be told. With Franoe the administration starts unemctlmbered by diplomatic issues of moment, excepting so far afl she may be involved with Germany in the settlement of the meat exclusion question. If, however, the general ar bitration treaty with Great Britain should be concluded, it is confidently expected that France will soon after seek to enter into a similar arrange ment with the United States which can be consummated Only With Oreat Diffl ultjr, owing to the radical difference between the judicial systems of the two coun tries. The conditions in Turkey are such as to require tho greatest vigilance and circumspection. Heretofore our efforts have been confined strictly to guarding the interests of American citizens in that country and and it is safe to predict that this policy will be continued, so that there is little pros pect of a serious disagreement unless resistance is met to our demands for reasonable indemnity for the pecuniary losses suffered by our people during the Armenian uprising.

The other nominations were confirmed without debate. HOUSE WILL CAUCUS. The Republican Member* to Get Together March 13.
