All legislation which encounters objit'

Alaska will gut no delegate by t hi' grace
of tho TiHtb congrivs. Neither will

Alaska Is wiitk In tho scnatu for two
reasons: All Alnsknu legislation en
counters opposition from a few men,
but what in more slgnlllcnnt, few sen

late ox thu treaties, in U00.
The treaties nfTect thu United StaU-u
adversely only in cau they arc defined
hy Germany oh not coming under tho
most favored nation clause. Tho gov

question of the most favored nation
clause until tho treaties: go into effect,
and the rorrosKindeut'a inference in

Tho German government would glad
