"While there may be a few who prefer a rowdy ending to a concert, of this variety, tho big ma- jority would far rather have the good music and songs which were .present- ed on this particular occasion. While this concert was not quite as rough I us some that have been held here this year, a great improvement will be no- ticed in the attendance and receipts 'when drunkenness is not allowed ii tlio hall. When a man gets full ho guts rampageous, and when two 01 three of thorn get, that way and stoj the entertainment, it leads one to think that rhe concert is oiilv a poo excuse for a glorious drinking bout.

Further the reply will intimate that had Congress not already acted the United States government would have considered a form of arbitration that would not however necessarily mean a reference to The Hague. The state so far as its view can be learned on this delicate point, feels that even had arbitration been conceivable before the passage of the Canal Act, such arbitration ought to he by and through American sources and not, through a tribunal which in the nature of the question would practically sit In a prejudiced case. rils LOSS "Remember, my sou, one never' loses anything by being polite."
