Audited.
COUNCIL   SO   DECIDES
Finance Committee Proposes to Increase
the Tax On Wholesale Houses-
Other Business*
"Your Committee finds that the
published statement of receipts
and expenditures for the past year
is incorrect and misleading and in
order that the books of the committee may be put right and kept in a
businesslike manner, they recommend that an audit be made of the
City book of accounts for the year
ending Dec. 31, 1898."
The above was a portion of the
report of the Finance Committee
to the City Council in weekly session
last night. In connection with it
the Mayor was authorized to employ an auditor to do the work as
quickly as possible, and to report to
the City Council as soon as the
audit was completed.
There were present at last night's
meeting     Mayor    Neelands,   Aid,
Fletcher, Beer, McKillop,   Kirkpat-
rick,   Hillyer,   and   City   Solicitor
Galliher.   The report of the Finance
Committee was first presented.     In
addition to the reference to  former
financial   statements  there   was   a
recommendation that Reisterer&Co.
and Gosnell & Co. be compelled  to
take out licenses to   sell   fermented
liquot by wholesale, a; -provided for
in bylaw No. 8. The license is $100
a year.    There was also  a  recommendation  that express  companies
and loan and investment companies,
doing business in Nelson, be   taxed
$25 every six months,  necessitating
an amendment  to  by-law   No.    8.
The committee   went   still   further
with a recommendation that the tax
on wholesale houses be raised  from
$10 every six  months   to   $*���*;,    the
limit provided in the Municipal Act.
This will require an  amendment to
subsection 9 of section 1   of by-law
No. 8.
In a supplementary report the
committee recommended that a rebate of 25 per cent oft' ordinary
rates and 33}/- per cent off night
rates be allowed to all electric light
consumers during the month ol
February.
Anothei clause of the report was:
"Your committee also recommend
that in future accounts against the
City (other than pay roll) be considered by the Finance Committee
only at the first meeting of each
month."
The report was   adopted   in   its
entirety.
Letters   were   read   from   J.   J,
Campbell, of the Hall   Mines,   and
John A. Turner, Government agent,
in regard lo the burial of men   from
the Silver King Mine who had been
brought to  Nelson   for   treatment
and who had died here.    There was
a question as to whether   the  Cily
or the Province should stand the expense nf the funerals, and to get at
lhe bottom of the matter   the   Cily
Clerk was instructed to send to Mr.
Turner  bills   for   the   expenses of
burying two miners who had recently died in the City,  and in  addition
the City Solicitor was instructed lo
write to the Attorney General of the
Province In regard to the  burial of
paupers.
A communication from Adolph
Lapolnt asked as to his chances of
securing a hotel license, and in reply
the City Clerk was instructed to say
that as there were no vacant licenses nothing could be done.
The report of Dr. La Hau, Health
Officer, which was laid over from
the last meeting, was referred for
consideration to .1 committee consisting of Aid. Fletcher, Beer and
Kirkpatrick.
W. R. McLean and others protested in a letter against the action
of the Council regarding their application for a site on the water
front. It appeared that the lot
wuntcd by Mr. McLean and his associates was property of the C.P.R.
and the Council took no action in
the matter, other than filing the
communication.
Thi Council inderaed tha pitUl����
of the residents of the eastern portion of the city asking for better
school facilities, and the City Clerk
was instructed to write to the Minister of Education in regard to the
matter.
Mr. P. J. Russell, on behalf of the
Parsons Produce Co., and Mr.
Frank B. Gibbs, of the Brackman
& Ker Milling Co., presented a
communication to the Council asking that the grade be established on
Front street, as both companies
were about to build warehouses and
desired to begin work at as early a
date as possible, The Board of
Works and City Engineer McCulloch were instructed to establish the
grade.
Aid. Hillyer then presented the
following resolution:
Whereas it is believed than an order of the Revei end Sisters of the
Catholic church, will build and
operate a General Hospital, in the
City of Nelson, if assisted by the
Government of British Columbia.
And whereas, there is an urgent
necessity for the same in the interests of the people of Kootenay.
Thererore   resolved,   That,   this
Council are of the   opinion, that an
appropriation  should   be  made   by
the Government of  British   Colum-
I bia. of at least  $6000   towards   the
1 construction of such   hospital;  and
that block 49 in   the   said  City of
Nelson should be given  to such order of the Reverend Sisters  for  the
purpose of a site for   said   hospital;
and further that an annual allowace
should be made, after the first year,
to the said hospital, on a basis to be
arranged, for the support, maintenance and care of the  destitute sick
other than those of the City of Nelson and other municipalities, on the
conditions following,  to wit:
(a) The Reverend Sisters to keep
the destitute sick of the Nelson Riding, other than those of the City of
Nelson, for one year free of charge.
(b) All Government monies to be
paid out and controlled under instructions of the Governor-in-
Council, by Commissioners to be appointed by the Governor-in-Coun-
cil, said Commisaioners to be at liberty at all times to inspect said hospital.
(c) The first cost of the building
to be not less than $15,1100.
After some discussion the resolution was adopted, Aid. Beer alone
voting in the negative.
The question of the salary of the
City Solicitor was referred to the
Council in committee of the whole
and will be brought up at a special
meeting next Wednesday.

Washington, Fob.   20.���Tbe   American-Canadian High Joint Commission,
after a   sessiou   today,   adjourned   to
meet at CJuebec, August 2,   unless   the
chairman of tho respective committees
agree upon another  date.    The   Commission first, began  its labors nearly
six mouths ago in   Canada   and   has,
with   the   exception   of    probably     a
month, been   earnestly   at   work   endeavoring to accomplish the object for
whieh   it   was   appointed���an   agreement, with rt view to the  formulation
of a treaty   covering   the   many   perplexing questions of differences affecting the business interests of the United
States and   Canada   existing  between
them.     There   were   several   reasons
which prompted the action   taken   today.    From a statement  made  public
with the sanction of tho two Commissions it appears that  there   were  serious differences   of   opinion   between
them regarding the important   matter
of the   dellruination   of   the   Alaskan
boundary, the Canadians ih this oou-
nectlOU neiug anxious to obtain n   seaport on the   L*i nn  canal   so , that  its
shippers would   not   be   subjected   to
nett,. unnoyn*noea which they  asserted
1 hey experienced at the hands of   United States ollicials.    The time for the
meeting of the Canadian   Parliament,
at whieh the presence of   members   of
the  Commission   from  that    country
is desired, is overdue   and   the   latter
ure anxious to return as  soon   as  pos-
sihle.    It ulso   became  apparent   that
there was little likelihood of   the   possibility   of   the   ratification   by     the
United Stntes, at its  present  session,
of any treaty, which might be  famed
which also probably figured in the de-
cision to adjourn.    A dozen important
questions were referred   to  the  Commission for Its consideration   and   the
Commissioners assert that substantial
progress iu the settlement and adjustment of many of theui has been made.
Probably   those   which   havo   given
iho most sorious trouble and proved  a
stumbling block to a final agreement
mi all, have been the two   relating   to
the  lumber   and   Alaskan    boundary
question, on both of whieh the  Canadians    have    demanded    concessions
whieh tho AmoricaiiH feel it would   be
prejudicial to tho best* interests of  the
United States to  g>'iint.    it   was  felt
also that an adjournment   for   a   few
months might result in a better   pros-
poet for harmony,   and  a  disposition
on 1 hi* imrl of the Canadians to  agree
to propositions made to them from tlie
Commissioners on  this side of  the!

iu the absence of Lord Hersohel, of
Ihn Canadian body, mado the following public statement respecting the
action taken today: "Tlm Commission adjourned to meet, at Quebec,
August 'J, unless the chairman of the
respective Commissions shall agree
upon another date. Thn Commission
has made very Substantial progress   in
tho  settlement and   adjustment   <>f
many of the questions upon   which   it*
lias been   earnestly  engaged,    lint   it
j has  been   unable   lo  agree   upon   the
settlement of the Alaskan boundary,
This problem has heen complicated and
a difficult one, but. the Commissioners,
acting in the utmost, friendliness and
cordiality, havo boon unable to agree
, upon 11  Satisfactory   adjustment,    The
difficulties, apart from the immediate
delimitation of this boundary   by   tlm
Commission itself, arise from thn conditions under whieh it  might  bej referred to arbitration.

meetings  the   Buffalo   Merchants'   Exchange ever held was that at noon today
wheu Lord Chin Ies Beresford   addressed
the business men of   Buffalo.    The   big
room was jammed to its fullest capacity
nt 12 o'clock aud 15 minutes later a long
line of people were standing in  the  corridors.   Lord Beresford arrived at  12-05
and was giveu an enthnsiastio   receptio'.
President Haines of the Merchant's   Ex-
ohange introduced him iu a brief'speeob.
He  a d it gave him great pleasure to in-
troduce   Bnch   a  distinguished  visitor,
who would talk ou trade relations of the !
fur   East.     Lord   Beresford   expressed
gratitude for the invitation extended  to
him to address the Merchant's Exchange.
" You have asked my views of China.
Tbe Assooiated Chambers of  Commerce
ol Great Britain sent me to see about invested capital,   trade   possibilities   aud
condition of utt'airs'.there generally.  I regard it as a great compliment to be sent
tn tbat far away country.   I  went   into
the questions   very   fully.   Trade  with
China has been increasing.   It increased
- some last year but at present there is no
security for further developments, lining
through trade statistics with  American,
German, Japanese aud other  gentlemen
who are doing bnsiueas in China, I found
the trade was reiilly confined to America,
England., Germany und Japan."
Lord Beresford prefaced his   remarkt-
with au allusion   to   the  oourtesy   and
kindness with which he has beeu received
bj the people of   this   country,  saying
that   tbe   memory   of   his   experiences
would be vei y pleasant.   He said tbat be
had beeu asked to make many addresses.
In reality, ho bad  come  here  to  learn
something, uot to   be   asked  questions.
The speaker mil lined the reasons for bis
visit to this   aud other  countries.   He
sated tbat he had heen seut hy the  As
aoiduled   Chambers    of   Comineroe    of
Great Britain  to   learn   whether   there
would be any chances of tnrtbering commercial ii.tereuts in China,   what   security there was for  invested  oapital   aud
what opportunities lay in tbe future.    As
a result ot bis observations he bad found
that business and trade in China had increased during the past year, that   there
was no security for the   development  of
trade aud commerce, tbat there was  uo
.-ecuiity offered to oapital by the  polioe
and Government systems now in vogue.
"I find," Haid tbe speaker, "from oon-
siiltalinu with representatives of the
United States, Germany aud Japan, thai
trade with China is confined to those
three countries, together with my own.
If some guarantee can he hi ought about

what the interests of the four are.,

to us that ^we aim f* r dorrinion -that
England aims at dominion. But we
deny that. If England aimed at dominion would I be here inviting three other
great and powerful nations to go in with
us for developing tbe future trade and
commerce of China? All we want is an ]
army of sufficient discipline to preserve*
Chiua'a integrity.
"Then we must rearrange the Government. People will tell me that the present order of things would be difficult to
upset. 1 Bay tbat it would be easy. In
China there is no religious fanaticism.
Chinese obey authority. Let them have
good authority, They are almost idolatrous in their reepeot for authority. We
shall have no nse for the open door unless tbe room on tbe other side of the door
hat) been put iu order. When the Chinese army has been put in order for the
benefit of tbe Chinese, we shall insist on
the great resouraes of the conutry being
opened to tbe world. The riohes of
some of the provinces through whioh I
passed are marvellous. Gold lies on tbe
surface. The Chinese do not like to
mine If they should dig a hole in the
earth some great devil would come out
from it and they all would have the
plague. Tbe Chinese merchants I found
to be in accord with my views. So were
the Vioeroys of some of the provinces.
The Government is against these views,
but it will not be loug before the Government will have to give in to the will
of the people, even in Chins.
"I call your attention to the faot,"
said he "that the people of England aud
tbe English Government have not tried
to keep France aud Russia out of China
but tbe English Government has exerted
all its powers to uphold the autonomy of
the Chinese Government and to keep tbe
open door to tbe commerce of the world
of such parts of China's territory as are,
or may be, Bubjeot to the influences of
those powers or any other power. Iu
this positiou I believe that the United
States should share and that it is very
muoh its interest to share,

the same as ours   in   England, becnuse
tbe tiiule   and   enmmuroe   of   the   two
great, nations are   inlerested   iu   China,
thu whole interests of   the whole  enun-
trieH are involved.   Tho   two  groat   nations must take the initiative.   Now tbe
'open door'   policy   expresses  simply   a

they now uro under   the present   treaty,
the fair and free li* 1*1 for   all.    It is   uo
policy   lo   maintain   |terrilurial    rights.
Tbe 'open door' policy iu   China  is  impossible unless Ohiua is kept   in   its   integrity.    The first step to he taken is to
put Iho Chinese army ou ajirin   footing.
It iH no question whether China will   (ull

term.   Aud you have a Monroedo"Dtrine
which will make you still more adverse
to an alliance.   But it is in the interests of trade alone that I speak of a
union of the four great countries  regarding the future of China,   because
1 hey   should  look   to  the   future.   1
mean nothing in the  way of treaties,
protocols or alliances.    I am more than
pleased to   find with whut  cordiality,

of tho Anglo-Saxon race is  welcomed
by  you,   our   trans-Atlantic   coiiBinH.

real unity of purpose has grown rapidly within the past few years aud I am

Victoria,  B. C,   Feb.   jo.���The
Minister of Finance, Hon. Mr. Cotton,    today   delivered   the   Budget
speech in the Legislature.    He first
made a statement   of  the   financial
affairs for the year ending  June   30
last, under the administration of his
predecessor, Mr, Turner.    For that
year, he said, there was an estimated and   authorized   expenditure  of
$2,060^614,      while   tbe    revenue,
along with $285,000 to be left over
from the last loan, was estimated at
$1,573,089,    leaving  an   estimated
deficit of $487,525.    The actual result, however,   has   proved   to be,
revenue $1,4-o,t)23,expenditure $2,-
1 97,347 and licticit $647,723.    Deducting $86,31 5   for sinking  fund,
left a net deficit of $561,408.
In the   current year,   basing  his
calculations   largely   upon the first
half already   expired, he   estimated
that the gross deficit would be $1,-
063,010 and, deducting the $96,382
required   for the sinking  fund,   the
net deficit would be  $966,628.    As
it would be impossible to   wipe  off
by economy or by increased taxation
the deficits found existing when the
Government   took office   and neces
surily continuing tor a time,   a  loan
would   be required   for  an   amount
which he estimated   at $1,750,000.

Tbe di bale 011 this  amendment proved

THEY SEE   THEIR   MISTAKE.
It was understood that Victoria
and Vancouver encouraged the
Government to introduce their Alien
Exclusion Bill. The merchants of
those cities thought it would be a
fine thing to keep American trade
out of the Atlin country and to get
all of it for themselves. They had
the benefit of the Canadian tariff,
but even with that very substantial
advantage they were afraid of American competition. American miners
going to the Atlin placer mines
would buy their supplies at home,
notwithstanding the tariff. And
American vessels would take them
up, and not only take them but also
Canadians. To stop all this it was
determined to exclude aliens, which
would give the carrying trade to
Canadian vessels and the commercial trade to Victoria and Vancouver merchants. Therefore were hats
waved on the Coast when it was
announced that the Government
would bring down an Exclusion
Bill.
Victoria is already in a  repentant
mood,   weeping  tears  at  its  own
folly.    Vancouver is  more   political
than commercial, and its repentance
is a   plant   of slower growth.   No
doubt many of its merchants feel that
an interview with themselves behind
the woodshed would be   the   proper
thing under the   circumstances,  bul
thus far   they   have   failed   in  the
moral courage  openly to acknowledge their  folly,-   as   Victoria   has
done.   For several weeks there have
been confessions   from   the   Capital
that the Bill was an  economic  mistake.    In a late issue of The Globe
a gentleman connected with  one of
the largest transportation companies
on the Coast frankly admits that the
Bill is a detriment to trade  instead
of an advantage.      "1   know,"   he
says, "that up to the time Mr. Martin's Alien Exclusion Bill came  into
operation we were  carrying  hundreds of tons of supplies to Skagway
for the  Atlin   district.      I   further
know, as a fact, that Americans  interested in the Atlin   country,    and
who  had bought   supplies   in   the
Eastern States, were shipping them
by our Canadian   steamboats  from
here   North, and    large   purchases
were    constantly   being   made   by
Americans both   here  and  in Vancouver of all   kinds   ol  supplies for
the North.      When   the   Exclusion
Bill came into force it  was perfectly
surprising   the  change it   brought
about, and only those in actual contact with the   trade   can   form  any
���dea of the detrimental effect it  had
on business.      Large   orders   were

propose to sit down with open 'or Mr' Mulock should give some at-
mouths, and gratefully accept these tention to this end of the road
miserable crumbs. Not at all. There
has been a meeting of the Rossland
Board of Trade, and jointly with
the City Council that body instructed the Mayor to proceed at once to
the Capital and inform the Government that there is absolute neces-
si'y for increass-J appropriates.
The Mayor went off post haste, and
will doubtless arrive by the time
these lines see the light.
It is not improbable that this
rather aggressive importunity may
have the effect desired, and that
$16,000 additional may be voted
for the benefit of Rossland. We do
not suppose there is a district in the
Province that is getting all it asked,
or wishes, and that does not consider itself entitled to more. If all
those districts were to dispatch delegates to the Capital to demand more
���and they have as much right to do
so as Rossland-we should have gov
ernment by mob; and if they all suc-
seeded in getting their demands, t
which they have a,\ equal right with
Rossland, we should speedily have a
depleted treasury. In making appropriations for public buildings or
improvements, the Government have
first to consider the necessities of
each case presented, and next to
consider the amount the revenues
will afford. Having done these,
they will then proceed to apportion
the amounts. It is presumed that
the Government have adopted this
procedure in the present instance,
and that Rossland has had appro-
propriated to it its full share, ac
cording to its requirements and the
sum available for distribution. If it
shall get more it will be at the expense of the rest of the Province.
However, it is assurance that wins
these days, Governments, like Providence, help those that help themselves, and if Rossland shall succeed in intimidating the Finance
Minister we are not sure but we shall
have to admire its audacity.
The Rossland Record, apologising for its scant court report, explains that an attempt to get information at the court house a few
days ago was frustrated by "the
oourt," in this case Mr. Justice
Martin, sending the reporter off with
the information that "courts were
not run for the benefit of newspapers." There must be some mistake
here. No one supposes that courts
are run for the benefit of newspapers; but they are run for the benefit
of the people, whom the newspapers
represent. Mr. Justice Martin has
too long been associated with the
Press not to understand its rights
nnd privileges, and if The Record
reporter was driven off as explained
it must have been because he presented himself at an inopportune
lime and was seeking information
which he could have got for himself
if* he had exercised due diligence
in his calling. We refuse to believe
tint his Lordship i- putting himself
in a position of antagonism to the
newspapers.  That would omy prove

An Ottawn  special   to  the Toronto
Mail and Empire says:   Mr. J. A. Gem-
mill, barrister, of this cily, hns a somewhat unusual request to prefer to the
Railway Committee of the Privy Council when it meets next  week.   In   the
Act   granting     the    subsidy   to   the
Crow's Nest Paps rnilway the following
clause  was   inserted:���"The   Railway
Committee of the Privy Council mny
grnnt running powers over the snid line
of railway and all its branches and connections, or any portions thereof,  and
all lines of railway   now  or hereafter
owned or based by or operated on  account of the compnny in .British  Columbia south of the company's mnin
line of railway, and the necessary use
of  its  tracks,   stations   and    station
grounds, to any other railway company
applying for Buch a grant  upon  such
terms as such committee may   fix   and
determine, and according to  the   provisions of tho Railway Act, and of such
other general Acts relating to  railways
as are from time to time pnssed by Parliament, but nothing  herein   shall   be
held to imply that such {running  powers might not be   so  grunted without
the special provision herein contained."
A chnrter exists at present tor a mil-
way from Nelson  to   Bedlington,   Ihe
latter place being nearthe international
boundary, Hut on the  British Columbia side.   If ;the   Railway Committee
grants permission under the foregoing
clause for the N. and B. railway to -run
over a portion of the Crow's Nest railway, it will avoid the necessity of duplicating 10 miles of road from Nelson in
southornly direction.    The outcome of
Mr. Gemmill's application will be awaited with interest.

It   Is  Against the   Law   to   Catch
Brook Trout at   Present.
Nelson rejoices in a large number
of disciples of Isaac Walton. "Complete anglers" can be encountered at
| every street corner during  the  fishing   season.    The   enthusiasm,    in
fact, outlives the regulations, as the
anglers cannot confine themselves to
the season prescribed  by   law.    At
presenl    up   al   Cottonwood   Lake
there are several holes cut in the ice
and almost daily lines dangle through
them to entice the speckled beauties
that inhabit the cold waters   below
The enthusiasts   evidently  are not
aware of the fact that al this particular season of the year the law  prohibits the catching of lish.    Clause
26 of the Dominion Fishery Regulations for the Province ol British Columbia reads as follows:
"No one shall fish for, catch, kill
buy, sell or possess, any brook trout
of any kind, or speckled trout, between the fifteenth day of October
and the fifteenth day of March, both
days inclusive."
Indians are exempt from lhe
provisions of this law as they are allowed to catch fish for their own
food.
On Sunday last a prominent lawyer of Nelson was seen on the street
with rod and tackle. As this evidently meant that even the members
of the legal profession were not familial- with the regulations. Chief of
Provincial Police Bullock-Webster
thought it time to step in and see
that the law was drilled into the
public. So yesterday he waylaid a
Miner man and explained the fishing situation. Il is evident that if
the law is not more carefully obeyed
hereafter it will be enforced in a
manner that will be rather expensive tor those who break it. The
law gives the Chief power to confiscate all the tackle and fish found in
the possession of the trangressor.

Tbey have had a "phenomenal"
work in stock operations in Rossland,
too. According to Tbe Miner, there
bas been nothing liko it since tho boom
days in 1890. It looks, indeed, as if
the whole of the Kootouays were entering npou boom days, and that the
year will prove a notable oue in the
history of British Columbia mining.

The following leview
ou mines near Silverton
Silvertonian:
Tbe work laid ont by the
mining companies operating
Silverton district, which is to
the   work
from   the
various
in the
be  car
ried out this season, will undoubtedly
make Silverton a busy place this summer. Among the many contemplated
improvements are the following.
At the Emily Edith mine a concentrator is to be erected with a capacity
for treating 2000 tous of ore per day.
This ooucentrator will be erected on
Silver Creek, and will be strictly
up to date. Four Mile must in future
be termed, about one half mile above
town. It is to be connected with the
mine hy a tramway. This company
has already practically completed the
prelimiuaryjwork and it is oulyja ques
tion of a few days before ground will
be broken for the erection ot these
works.
The Esiex group, situated below tbe
���Wakefield and about four miles up Silver Creek, will be started up just as
goon as tbe mow will permit. Large
aud commodious buildiugs will be erected and a large force of men employed.
An aerial tramway is to be erected
by tbo Wakefields Minos, to connect
that big property with the wagon
road. There ia also considerable talk
of this company erecting a concentrator at the foot of the tram, to treat
tbe large amount of concentrating ore
they have on the dump and blocked
out in tbe mine.
At th�� Vancouver Group extensive
improvements are to be made, amongst
others u long crosscut tuuuel is to be
driven to tap the ore bodies at a still
greater depth.

The Golden Era says: Mr. F. A.
Mullliiilliiiiil. the well kiiifwu maingor
of tho Mines Development Company,
informs us that the new jompauy
which bus taken over tho Swansea
mine at Windermere has $'25,000 in tbe
treuBury speciully for development
work nlone aud that the work will be
prosecuted vigorously during the coming m'iihiiii. It is intended to start
work at tho Swansea early iu April.
Mr. Mullhollantl still retains a considerable interest in thu Swansea and
has great faith in its future. He informs us that the new owners had
the property separately examined by
time experts before deciding ou its
purchase and the repOTtB-Were uniformly
satisfactory. The ore body, over a
width of Ki feet, averaged over 7 per
ceut copper and a few dollars in   gold.

tbat tbo whole question should be re-
ferred on terms similar to those provided in tbe reference of the Venezuelan boundary line and which, by
providing an umpire, would ensure certainty and finality.
"The United States Commissioners,
on the other hand, thought lhe local
conditions in Alaska so different that
some modification of the Venezuelan
ounilary reference should be introduced. They thought tbe reference
bii made to six einineut jurists, three
chosen by each of tbe high contracting
u irties, without providing for an umpire, they believing tbat finality would
be secured by a majority vote of the
jurists so chosen. They did not see
any present prospect uf agreeing to an
European umpire to be selected iu the
the manner proposed by the British
Commissioners, while tbe Biitish Commissioners were unwilling to agree to
ihe selection of an American umpire in
the manner suggested by lhe United
States Commissioners.
"The United States Commissioners
further contended that, special stipulations should be made in uny reference
to arbitration, that the existii g settlement! on the'tidewaters of the coast
should in any event continue to belong to the United States. To tbis
i'(intention the British Commissioners
refused to agree. It wns therefore
leemed advisable tn adjourn to a convenient dute iu order to enable the re-
��� pective (ioveniments to further consider the subject with respect to which
