The statement of doctor Alcorta the Argentine minister of foreign affairs that Argentine has referred the matter to the arbitration of tile British government under the agreement of 1898, appears to be accurate. As the foreign Vilice understands the Case it is not one relative to the Boundary Between the countries but whether Chili has tin right to build Neutral roads in the disputed territory. This commission of which Laird Mcnaughton is president has been sitting in London for nearly two years and is now almost ready to go and personally inspect the disputed Boundary. For various reasons however the departure of this commission has been delayed and it is Likely to be delayed for some time to come. The Appeal of doctor Alcorta has not yet been officially communicated to it the British foreign office but when it reaches Downing Street it will meet with favourable answer. Although lord Lansdowne the Secretary for foreign affairs finds that the commission under ism Mcnaughton is powerless he will intimate the willingness of great Britain to arbitrate the difference Between the two countries s if Chile Jirees to that proposition.
