at he Athenaeum DAILY ROW ITS PARLIAMENT Surceudcil in Using Up All the Time So Far London Oct was another lively though futile discussion in the house of commons yesterday on the subject of granting a day for a debate oa the state of Ireland It only led to a great deal of strawsplitting allega tions of discourtesy and a considerable increase in the illfeeling prevailing The feature was the bringing into the debate of the name of the president of the United States This was done by I William OBrien who questioned Balj four regarding President Roosevelts i letter to the convention of the United j Irish Leaguo at Boston Mass OBrien asked the premier if he had observed that Roosevelt sent a letter and wheth er in view of future friendly rela tions between the United States and Great Britain he could make any an nouncement that this country was not indisposed to learn wisdom regarding Irish affairs from the head of a great and friendly nation Roosevelts letter to the Irish con vention is signed by Cortelyou and says that the president very much ap preciates the cordial invitation extend ed to him by your league and re grets that his public duties will pre vent him from being present He then thanks the league for the courtesy shown him The speaker promptly ruled the ques tion out of order to the evidentchagrln of the Nationalists whose excitement Increased as OBrien

But Not Accept the Principle Laid Down in the Decision of an Arbitrate KING OSOAE OF NORWAYS DICTUM Would Prevent Us 1rotn Landing Troops on Foreign Soil to Pro tect Our Citizens Washington Oct Oscar of Sweden and Norway has decided tlie Samoan controversy in favor of Germany This fact became known on the return of Grip the minister of Sweden and Norway from a long visit to his home Grip called at the state department but did not of course disclose the decision of his sovereign which must be formally presented sim ultaneously to the three powers con cerned The announcement will be astonishing to the governments of the United States and Great Britain against it it will utterly refuse to be bound by such a principle Otherwise the United States govern ment could be held liable for enormous damages In cases where it lands troops upon tlie isthmus of Panama resulting a collision with rioters or rebels even though the government is solemn ly bound by treaty to preserve frse traffic across the isthmus For it is pointed out that similarly the United States was bound by a treaty In the case of Samoa which were confident that they would establish fully the legality and pro priety of the joint landing of marines at Apia in 1S99 to sustain the decree of the Samoan supreme court and end the revolution Claims Are Insignificant The full scope of the arbitral decree of King Oscar is not yet divulged and the extent to which it covers the claims for damages filed by the citi zens of the three countries and of France may not be kvwwn for several days These claims which were nom inally the prime cause for arbitration are insignificant however compared a with the question of national honor j on which they depended and if the action of the United States and Groat Britain had been sustained by the royal arbiter would have fallen to the ground Base of the Disputed Chums j Tlie Samoan dispute grew put of tlie concerted action of Hear Admiral Kautz of the United States navy and

signed at Washj ington on Nov 7 1S99 submitting the J claims of Samoan residents to the king l of Sweden and Norway for arbitra tion the main questions being whether the military action of the United State and Great Britain had been warranti ed Immediately the aggregate Oi claims most of them German and American rose to about In July 1900 King Oscar consented to as arbitrator and last spring the briefs containing the nrguments on the main point at issue and the schedule of claims were submitted to him CfiiTespoiulince between the repro senratives of the three powers in Apia at the time s spread on tlie records was extremely bitter and full of re flections on tlie integrity and honor of the nations concerned and there were frank declarations that if the naval forces of the United States and Great Britain had not been supremo in the absence of Gorman warships a clash must have occurred which would have brought the United States and Ger many to tlie verge of war It is not the amount of money in volved in this approaching decision of the arbitrator that concerns the gov ernment of the United States but rath er the enunciation of a principle whicu if accepted as a precedent would bo unpalatable and would so seriously restrict the assertion of United States rights in foreign countries in case of revolution or rioting jeopardizing the lives and property of our citizens that it would amount to the total withdraw al of protection This can never bo admitted and so it may be positively stated that while the United States government will accept the arbitrat loyally and
