THE PROGRESS OF THE WORLD.

The second great gain which has come Title : to us from this settlement is that at Prescription. last the cloctrine of prescription is

introduced into International Law. By the Treaty it was arranged that-. we should treat the Colonial Empire just as tre treat individuals, that the same lapse of time which protects individuals in civic life from having their title questioned should also protect the English colony from having its title questioned, and that where that lapse of time could not be claimed there should be examination of title, and all that eqnity demanded in consideration of such title should be granted. These are Lord Salisbury's words, but they are qualified in the Treaty by the explicit statement that the period in question shall be fifty years.

London, December 1, 1896. The one great forward step made in The Anglo the progress of the world last month 'American was the conclusion of the Treaty beReunion.

tween Great Britain and the United States for the settlement of the Venezuelan frontier by arbitration. The arrangement which brought to a close eleven months' agitation and negotiation was very simple, but the simplicity of the settlement cannot disguise the gravity of the decision which has been taken. The arrangement which, at last, commended itself to both Governments is one which so entirely accords with the principles contended for in these pages, that I have no word of criticism to offer. First and foremost, the treaty is made between Britain and the United States, not between Britain and Venezuela. The Republic of Venezuela is reduced to its proper position of vassal to its suzerain or federal superior at Washington, to whom in future we shall, of course, look for the due execution of the award and the fulfilment of any undertakings into which Venezuela may enter. That is the first great gain of the Treaty...::

Venezuela, so far as its foreign policy Overlordship is concerned, is virtually a territory of of the the United States, and what is true of

states. Venezuela will sooner or later be found to be true of all the South American Republics. No doubt in time there may come another war between North and South in which the line of division will not be between the Northern States and the Southern States lying between the St. Lawrence and the Gulfof Mexico, but between the Northern Continent which speaks English and has been cast in the English mould, and the Southern Continent which is Spanish or Portuguese, and has as yet no adequate appreciation either of liberty or of law. The manifest destiny of the United States to dominate the Western Hemisphere has now been asserted by its Government and recognised by our own, to the no small dismay of European Powers, who have as yet by no means reconciled themselves to the Monroe dootrine Now, for our part, we are all for the Monroe doctrine, pro vided the United States, as in the present case, accepts the responsibility which is the corollary of its prerogative.

“MAY WE ALL LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!"

This principle, however, will probably be gradually extended until it covers all frontier disputes. Un interrupted occupation will give title in sovereignty as well as in matters of property. It is a great advantage, especially for young and growing Powers ; for we have been confronted hitherto, in all parts of the world, by the obsolete claims of Powers like Portugal and Spain, which have never been asserted for a century or more, and are still held to be quite valid, as against the more active colonising Powers. Of course, the Treaty with America governs no one but the two Powers; but a precederit like this is very apt to be followed. In any case, it will facilitate the satisfactory solution of arbitration by a detinin
