Williams was hanged near Amite

washington, Jan. 21.—Tho Senate
committee on foreign relations to-day
had under consideration the general
arbitration convention between the
United States and Great Britain. Sec-
retary Olney was before the committee
to explain the provisions of the treaty
and remained until it adjourned.
There was a general discussion of the
provisions of the treaty, nearly evenr
memlier questioning its probable ef-
fect. Nothing was brought out show-
ing any definite plan of the committee
or its intention regarding the treaty,
though the questions put to the secre-
tary indicated that there would bo op-
position to many of its provisions, and
there were differences of opinion
among members and the secretary as
to the effect of the treaty.
Mr. Olney declared that the treaty
had been negotiated with great care
for the protection of American inter-
ests, and expressed the opinion that, if
ratified, it would be found satisfactory.
He contended for its approval as an
advance in diplomacy in accordance
with the tendency of the times.
Mr. Olney was made to understand
that the committee wanted the fullest
possible information ard, having thia,
it would be disposed to take up and
act upon the treaty on its merits.
