The new treaty with Great Britain,

manly statesmanship of the republicans
shown up by Wm. E. Curtis, a strong
administration supporter, in the Chicago
Record of the 20th inst. Speaking of
the Hay-Paunceforte treaty, he says:

sition on the part of several republican
senators to dodge the issue until after
the fall election. They are afraid to
vote in favor of anything that concerns
England one way or the other. There
has never been such a general intimida
tion of congress on any subject as ep
pears to exist to day. Although the re
publican leaders are predicting an over

election and the democratic leaders are
admitting the probability of such a re
suit, there seems to be a state of abjact
terror upon the republican side of both

House Continues the Debate
the Porto Rican Tariff
WASHINGTON, Fob. 32.—The senate
committee on foreign relations has or
dered a favorable report on the treaty of
reciprocity with France. No amend
ment was made to the treaty.
No opposition was manifested on the
part of any member of the committee
and the report in its favor will be unan
imous. The members of the committee
discussed the provisions at some length
but only for the purpose of becoming
familiar with them. The fact was em
phasized that if the treaty should be
ratified 609 articles of American origin
would be admitted to France at the
minimum rate and only subjected to
the present rate.
