of the state de says This correspondence disclosses the Important fact that the French govern ment now practically places its exclusion of our port products upon economic in stead of sanitary Aslhls policy of exclusion is a measure for the protec tion of the domestic products of is applied only to the United the department has not failed to protest against the discrimination as In a letter from to Secretary dated June in answer to a letter from the already pub Held says any steps taken towards calling the attention of the French gov ernment to the subject would seem inop lie also says the French gov ernment rather favors the removal of the On July acting Secretary Wharton wrote to Reid ap proving of his A letter from commissioner general of the United States at the Paris exposi to give the substance of an interview between Reid and and French minister of foreign at which Spuller admitted that the citizens of France did not believe the consumption of American pork by them would injure the health of Spuller there would be difficulty in having the prohibition re moved on account of the protectionists In response to an invitation given by Itcid to inspect American pork products at the November sent a stating in the opinion of his who had charge of the health the inspection of meat shown in the exhibition would not have the importance which Keids letter seemed to give as the purity and quality of the meat already established by rewards would not prove that tho mass of American hog products is equally Included in the correspondence is i letter from Blaine to enclosing a ctter from the secretary of giving a history of the harsh and un reasonable to quote Imposed by the governments of Germany and Great Britain against tho importation of American live animals and hog In his which is dated March Blaiuc instructs Reid to express he hope to tho French authorities that the French government may now bo prepared to extend equitable relief from injust Blaino adds that tho United States ministers to England and Scrmany had been Early in Tuly Reid called on the French minister of foreign affairs and in a letter to Secretary dated July he says the Ribot continued as he had done on every sim lar occasion that the agita tion of the Mclvinley bill made any ac tion on this point extremely Reid protested that France was the ag gressor and should take the first A voluminous dated July was sent to Ribot by The American minister in this en deavord to show Ribot the mistake France is making in excluding American and quotes statistics to carry out Us He hints at a possible prohibion of French wines by the United states owing to the growth of the wine industry of this and refers to the effects such action would have on On July Ribot sent a note to Ecid in which he said the difficulties in the way of removing the prohibition had not been attenuated by the measures which were finally passed or voted on by the house of and which do not fail to raise just complaints on the part of the French Ribot referred to the tariff bill and customs ad ministrative in a letter to dated July asks pardon for endeavoring to show that this is a view of the situation which the facts do not The existing rule as to the exclusion of American pork has been says Reed in his let not a step to that end so far as known has been What evidence of good in this regard has France which tho United States could be already expected to reciprocate Besides there would appear tobo no simi larity of a just relation of any kind be tween the two subjects which your excellency couples with the French exclusion of American pork and two American bills currently called McKinley nor is there any reason why the continuance of one should bn justified by your apprehen sions as to the There is every reason from the history of such legisla tion in the past to believe if experience shows defects or injustice in the work ing of the American they will be The French decree in spite of argument and in spite even of proof that it does not do any has been tenaciously main tained unchanged for nine Tho American bills touch coun tries with absolute The French decree singles out tho United States from allother countries and pro hibit its while similar products of tho rest of the world arc ad The American bills make no charges against the quality of the pro duct whose importation they regulate or The French decree is based upon the indefensible charge that the Amer ican product excluded is although this charge has been repudiated bv the French Academy of Medicine and though this is pro hibited iand unwholesome product das recently been crowned by tho highest prize of your own universal Franco and has been for nine years a persistent It has absolutely prohibited the importa tion of the American product on indefen sible It still maintains this prohibition in spite of the demonstration of the facts that nothing thereby is gained either for own consumers or its own and the on ly appreciable affect is to do in justice to a centuryold friend by openly discriminating against that friend in favor of Italy and After such a and in advance of the slightest known movement to amend how can France have reason to as your excellency that its evidence of good will should now be reciprocated by the United States Ho who seeks justice should first do Much more shouldthat nation which seeks friendly consideration for its refrain first from injustice to merchants of the country appealed and from the defamation that countrys After calling attention to the offei from Washington to modify the custom bill at the request of France in regard to appeals from cases of alleged undervalu and stating this friendly actioi and removal of duty on works of art hac passed unnoticed by he concludes as follows VFrom ofview case stands thus The French government has persisted for nine years in an fensible discriminating especially against United States Mean while It complains t of new laws by the United States less severe and no way discriminating against French Its complaints re ceive prompt and considerate attention and the friendly disposition thus shown evokes no It cannot believed that with a full un derstanding of the tho French government deliberately chooses that Your excellency has been necessarily much preoccupied of late with other but I cannot believe1 that when you come to give the case full attention you can bo satisfied with I make my appeal to French French justice may I to the enlightened sense of the French NEBRASKA DEMOCRATS
