is understood that tha paper enjoys exceptional facilities obtaining inside news about public at A Washington special to the Journal says it is believed it reflects tho views of the administration regard Ing reciprocity with Central and South It has been frequently asserted by those who are opposed to the reciprocal treaty that the favored nation clause in treaties between the South American republics and European powers would or at least any advantages we might gain from such This is Very few of the South American countries have commercial treaties with and even if there were treaties containing tho favorednation it would not apply to such reciprocal concessions as are proposed by the United Bra for if she had a treaty with England containing the favorednation of compelled to give England the same advantages in trade that she gives In other she would be compelled to admit bread petroleum and other articles from England free of duty to her ports as well as those from the United provided England save her similar but England produces no pe troleum or lumber for neither dons Austria or with whom she has Spain produces a little wheat for but that is sent to Cuba with greater profit than to other nations because that island is a colony of Spain and elves advantages to Spanish products which the producers of other countries do not But in negotiating a reciprocity treaty with the United Brazil would insist upon including only our peculiar which arc not produced by any of the European We have no compe tition in that market for our peculiar except from tho Argentine Re which has been producing a large quantity of wheat and and has ex ported these articles to tho value of fif teen or eighteen million dollars a During the current year the Argentine Republic has been an importer of because of the failure of two successive owing to drought but the country has an enormous capacity for the pro duction of cereals and will become a dangerous not only in but in the markets of It is there fore the more important that the United States should secure a permanent foot hold in these markets while it has tho Brazil cannot make a reci procity treaty with the Argentine Re public because of local the ports of the Argentine Republic are closed to commerce with Brazil for at least six months In the year for sanitary Yellow fever is epidemic In Brazil and the ports of the two countries are so contiguous that steamers from Brazil are required to remain in quaran tine for ten or twelve days before un and commerce with infected ports is suspended by presidential pro clamation for the whole Brazil has nothing to offer tho Argentine Republic in exchange for her ex cept and that is now being raised in largo quantities in the northern prov inces of the Argentine Republic and Par The United States has the favored nation clause in most of her commercial but this will not embarrass the government in tho negotiation ot reci procity treaties or arrangements with other because the department of state has uniformly held from the time of as secretary of to that the favorednation clause only applys where privileges are granted freely and without a considera but wherever a special considera tljn is made the condition of a favor granted or tho favorednation clause does not This interpreta tion has been recently sustained by the supreme court of the United States in its opinion on the case of Bartram Rob October This case arose under the Hawaiian reciprocity it being claimed that sugar and molasses imported from tho island of a colony of should be ad mitted free from duty under tho favored nation clause of a treaty between the United States and because like articles were admitted free from the Hawaiian Tho supreme court rejected tho stating that the treaty with Denmark docs not bind tho United States to extend to that country compensatory privileges which they have conceded to tho Hawaiian Islands in exchange for valuable QUAYS RESOLUTION Likely to Provoke a Lively Skirmish Wash ington correspondent of the Journal tel egraphs that when Senator Quays reso lution fixing an order of business for the remainder of the session comes up to morrow it is expected a lively skirmish will The adding of tho anti lottery bill to tho list of measures which Senator Quay proposes to during tho remainder of the session has not given the proposition any as the adoption of the lottery bill by tho senate has been conceded as a matter of but it must be confessed that Senator Quays proposition to limit the remainder of the session to certain meas not including tho election has grown in Fitteen or twenty republican senators are very much deter mined that tho election bill shall be passed before and it is barely although not that the four or five resolutions looking toward a curtailment of debate and limit ing the length of the session will bo staved off by some if it is as stated upon tho authority of a number of wellinformed republican sen that there are as many as fifteen in the east side of the chamber who will join the solid democratic side in the effort of Quay to limit consideration of tho the struggle on Wednesday will bo a success in a greater or less de gree to tho efforts of the The impression prevails that tho Quay resolution will be adopted in some who presides over tho sen ate the absence ofthe said afternoon that he hoped a verbal agreement could be made between the republicans whereby tho measures named by Senator Quay could be dis posed of before adjournment without re sorting to tho adoption of a resolution or caucus bnt Senator Quay said later in the day that ho did not see how it as a majority of the sen ators were tired of the session and eager to get away and wanted a time fixed for Senator Quay contends that there is no political question in volved in the consideration of his resolu that it is purely a matter of busi ness for tho country and convenience for individual He says that if a program is agreed upon the democrats will string out the debate on the tariff bill and consume the remainder of the session in consideration of which he names in his before the is and without any consideration whatever of the A last determinedfight will be made bythe friends of the election bill for its consid eration before but It looks now as though it would go overuntll nex If tho Quay resolution Is adopted It I believed adjournment will be had durln the last ten days of Majo does ziot believ that congress can be anjourncd befor the last of even if the resolu tlon Is adopted in the senate on Wednes With tho tariff bill he thinks then will bo a conference of at least twc There is a decided feeling In the which may compe an earlier Nothing can be more absurd than
