165 Mr. Pierrepont to Mr. Evarts Nov. 15 Reply of the lords of the treasury to Mr. Eaton's
request for opinions respecting the result of the change in method of appointment to the civil service. The change still in progress. The limitations and conditions under which the principle of competition ought to be applied cannot be said to have been placed beyond question. The practical permanence of tenure (although legally at pleasure) of office, as well deserving of attention as the rules of admission to the service. The competitive system more generally introduced into the Indian service than into any of the other great services. The questions proposed appear to be such as could only be answered by politicians in a parliamentary debate. Editorial from the Times of December 5 upon the Eastern question.

Condon case; further correspondence... Reviewing the award of the fishery commission. The correspondence due to the desire to reach a complete understanding between the two gov. ernments as to the conformity of the award to the terms of the treaty of Washington. The protest to the award based upon the proposition that it transcends the submission. By the treaty the United States surrendered no right previously held. Its fishery rights under the treaty of 1818, and its interpretation of the same, were maintained before the Joint High Commission. The rights secured by the Treaty of Washington were to be in addition to those already held. The scope of the arbitration was the determination of the value of a temporary possessory privilege in respect of the fisheries; and in forming their estimate of the value of such privi lege, the commissioners were restricted to the measuring, as against privileges granted to the fishermen of the United States, concessions made by the United States in favor of Canadian fishermen under Articles XIX and XXI of the treaty, by which the right to fish in our waters, within certain limits, and to import into the United States free of duty, certain articles of great value in the commerce of the provinces, articles which hitherto were only admitted after the payment of a high rate of duty, were granted. The narrow scope of the arbitration: The record of the value, for certain periods, of the conces sion made by Great Britain; the record of the value of the duties remitted in respect of the concession made by the United States; and the nature of the catch, essentially limited to the inshore mackerel fisheries; taken in connection with the magnitude of the award, compel the conclusion that the award could only have been based upon other grounds than those of the submission. This view of the award and protest thereto, to be brought to the attention of the British Government in order that the posi tion of the United States respecting its fishery rights may be understood, and that through its consideration a permanent and comprehensive settlement of the fishery interests of the two governments may be reached.
