WOULD MAKE WAR IMPOSSIBLE
Drltaln Dcllcvcd to favor Rc-Enact-ment
of Olncy-Paunccfotc Treaty
Glasgow, Nov. 28 The Glasgow
Herald comments on the fact that the
mutual acceptanco of the Anglo-American
treaty was announced on Novem
ber 0, but that it has not yet lieen
signed. The paper conjectures that the
delay may be duo to the inclination of
both governments to bring about a re
enactment of tho Olney- Paniuofnto
treaty of 1807, there being unmistak
able evidence that the advisability of
such n course 1b being considered.
While tho treaty of 1807 may not fit
present conditions lit its entirety, it
would be an easy matter, the paper
says, to change it accordingly, retain
ing, however, thoso piovisions which
aru largely In excess of tho bonds cre
ated between the United Slates and
other countries by tho various treaties
now pending. If this course were
taken, the Herald nays, war between tho
United States and Great Britain would
bu almost an impossibility.
Urucs Russia Make Treaty.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 28. Tho Ilourso
Garotte revives tho question of n new

Bitisfaction that thu negotiation of
commercial treaties forms a part of
President Roosuvolt'a program for the
coming admiuistrqtion, and that tho
consummation la grealy to bo desired
between Russia and America. Commer
cial wars, tho Garotte adds, are in tho
long run almost aa costly and disas
trous as armed hostilities, and equally
useless nml unnecessary.
