THE ANGLO-AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. Writing upon the subject of the Alabama question, the Special Correspondent of the Daily News, in Wash* ington, says that, while Americans almost universally maintain that the Geneva Tribunal has a right to decide as to the admissibility of the claim's for indirect dam- ages, and that Great Britain will be guilty of bad faith if she withdraws from the arbitration, there is, never- theless, a feeling of regret and surprise that the ques- tion was not settled beyond all dispute in the Treaty itself' One of the best American authorities on international law, Professor Woolsey, maintains that if the claims for damages were not to be submitted to the arbitrators, it follows that they can at any moment be revived, and s thus become a fresh cause of quarrel. Meanwhile the American public regard the question with a cakanesS which is perhaps hardly distinguishable from indiffet' ence. It is considered that if England now withdralvo from the Treaty she will be the chief loser, and thilt the responsibility will rest with her. Should the arbi- trators, instead of awarding America a gross sum, refet the question of damages to the Board of Assessors, tllo, indirect claims will probably be dropped.
