The Commercial Treaties. London, Nov. 4.
The negotiations which have been proceeding during the last few weeks between the French and Italian Governments have resulted in the conclusion of a commercial treaty between the two countries which was to-day
duly signed by the delegates appointed to carry on the negotiations. A semi-official statement has been published, to the effect that notwithstanding the suspension of the deliberations which were proceeding between the English and French Treaty Commissioners, it is hoped an exchange of diplomatic communications between the Governments of the two countries may yet result in bringing about a settlement of the point still in dispute. The statement adds that the great cordiality which prevailed between the British and French delegates during the progress of the recent negotiations affords grounds for the belief that a definite settlement of the Anglo-French commercial relations may be come to at an early date.
