Edmunds and the Treaty. Ex-Senator George F. Edmunds, who has given some attention to the arbitration treaty between England and the United States, and who is an authority on such questions, thinks the objections which have been brought against it are of very little weight. The Monroe doctrine is net affected by the treaty, he believes, nor are our relations t the Nicaragua Canal endangered by it In regard to the imaained peril to us in this power of a European to name an um pire in settlement of disputes in cer tain contingencies, he remarks very truly that "so far as our considerable experieuce giMia we have never had occasion to complain of any sover eign in naming an umpire or in de ciding a controversy." The three chief points of criticism against the treaty are thus dealt with. When submitted to intelligent, un biased examination, that is to say, the objections to it are found to be jiot formidable. Of course, some of the objectors are against the treaty because Cleveland favo...

UT of the window could be seen three hickory trees placed irregularly in a meadow that was resplendent in springtime preen. Further away the old dismal belfry of the village church loomed ever the pines. A horse meditating in the shade of one of the hickories lazily swished his tail.
