THE LOUISIANA TRFATY.
The Juntas of the Philippines, Cuba
and Porto Rico will probably all be
represented durlug the sessions, espec-
ially ths first named, whose struggle
for emancipation from Spanish mis-
rule will be roost determined.
Counsellors will be there for every
Interest, to construe or to misconstrue
as the occasion may warrant, and so,
on the whole, It Is fair to presume that
the commission will hold its sessions
deep into the winter, and possibly Into
the new year.
The American commissioners are
men of rare diplomatic ability, Sena-
tor Davis ranking, perhaps, foremost
among America's interpreters of in-
ternational law. Senators l-'rye and
Gray have had long experience on the
foreign committee, and the latter only
recently resigned from the Bekriug
B*a commission, where his knowledge
of International law proved exceeding
ly valuable. Whitelaw Reld has gain
ed his experience In our foreign dlplo
matte field, and Secretary Day, with
his thorough knowledge of the details
leading up to and the data of the war,
will be no mean opponent to the wily
diplomats of Spain.
All of this recalls to mind the few
treaties which have at various times
been made by the United States, and
tho excellent results which have
ways Inured to this country from the
rare diplomatic tact of Its commission-
ers. As a matter of fact, we hnve In
the government archives at Washing-
ton but three treaties of peace with
foreign nations. The first was that
which terminated the war of inde-
pendence. the second was that which
ended the war of 1812, and the last
was the treaty with Mexico In 1848.
In the latter the diplomat whose tal-
ents were applied to the new prob-
lems of that period was Nicholas P.
Twist, and It is to him we owe the
very valuable treaty of Guadalupe
Hidalgo. This was the one signed at
Guadalupe In Mexico, on February 2,
1848. Tho war had been caused by
the annexation of Texas In 1845, and
the conflicting claims about Texas'
southwestern boundary, Texas put
ting It nt the Rio Grande, and Mexico
contending it was at the Nueces, a
river farther east. At annexation the
United States adopted Texas' claim
snd in maintaining it war was caused.
Through Its victories In the war the
United States made Its claim good,
and In tho treaty of peace the Rio
Grande was made the bouudary. The
treaty also gave New Mexico and Cal
Ifornla to the United States, and this
country paid to Mexico $15,000,000, and
assumed, to the extent of $3,250,000,
the claims of United States citizens
At Ghent, in 1814, America was also
represented by men of deep Insight, of
rare judgment, and extraordinary dip
lomatic skill. They were John Qulnry
Adams. Henry Clay, James A. Bay
ard, Albert Gallatin and Jonathan
Russell, names familiar to avery stu
dent of American history.
England's representatives were Lord
Gambler, Henry Goulburn and Wil-
liam Adams. Aside from the provis-
ion which ended the war between the
United States and England, the most
Important features of the treaty were
those which provided commissions to
settle the title to islands In tho Passa-

made !n Paris, and of which the con

which gave us the territory west of
the Mississippi for something like 00.-

The commissioners who brought
about the transaction were Robert R.
Livingston and James Monroe, for the
United States, and Napoleon Bona-
parte and Francis Barhe Wanbois, for
For half a century before the pur-
chase Louisiana had been bought and
sold in turn by France and Spain. The
French settled It in 1700. In 1702,
France, finding that If she tried to
| hold i/oulslaua, it might be seized by
England, transferred It by secret
treaty to Spain. This cession, the
treaty said, was "from the pure Im-
pulse of his Majesty's heart." Spain
was surprised, and the Spanish min-
ister with whom the treaty waa made
only accepted Louisiana as a gitt upon
the expressed condition that it should
not l>e considered until his King ap-
proved the acceptance. Thus IjOuIs-
lana and the territory west of the Mis-
sissippi actually went begging an a
gift 133 years ago. The French peo-
ple who formed the colony objected
Savannah, Ga., Oct. 3.—For eight-
een hours Savannah has been in the
grasp of a West Indian cyclone. Dur-
ing that time the wind blew steadily
from fifty to seventy miles an hour.
While the city escaped with com-
paratively little damage, tho loss of
property among the sea islands of the
Georgia and South Carolina coasts is
believed to be heavy. For miles in
every direction around Savannah the
lowlands along tho rivers are sub-
merged. Only one fatality has so far
been reported—the drowning of a
negro while attempting to reach the
land from a small island, near Thun-
derbolt—but heavy loss of lifo is feared
on the South Carolina sea islands,
where such fearful loss of life occurred
during the great tidal Storm of 1893.
Tho conditions now are similar to
those during that storm. Owing to
the submerged country aud the Iso-
lated location of the islands, no news
can be had from theiu until the water
subsides. For oight miles north of
Savannah tho entire country is a lake
with only tho hummocks visible. At
noon the water was eight feet above
the highest tide. Driven on shore by
the northeast storm, It filled up on
tho islands, swopt over banks and
! dams, carrying away the remnant of
the rice orop that was left by the
August storm and had not boon gath-
, ered, and wiping out farm crops.
I The loss to rice growers alone will
I be from $50,000 to $7S,000. Of tho en-
! tiro rice crop along the Savanuah
I river, valued at $250,000, all but about
i 15 per cent was lost in thia and the
preceding storm. Tho damage to
| shipping is considerable. The schoon-

way to sea with a cargo of 1,500.000

bor, but was secured safely. Tho

CANADA'S PROHIBITION VOTE,
The Majority for Prohibition Through-
out the Dominion lfl.OOO.
Toronto, Ontario, Oct. 1. — The
majority for prohibition throughout
the entire dominion will not proba-
bly exceed 18,000. All thu provinces
except Quebco voted for prohibition,
Ontario giving it a majority of
about 10,000. Quebec's majority
against it of 40,000 is just about offset
by the returns from the maritime
provinces, while the returns from
Manitoba, the territories and
British Colombia show that the West
is in favor of prohibition by a major-
ity of 7,000 to 8,000. Not more thau
half the votes registered were cast.
Even the prohibition papers consider
the majority too small to influence the
government to attempt to enact pro-
hibition legislation. The vote was
taken simply for an expression of
opinion. It lias no effect in itself.
