Excluding British Shipping.
THE FOREIGNER'S METHODS.
United Press Association—Pet Electric Telegraph—Copyright. London, May 23 In the House of Lords, Lord Musketry complained that the Philippine, Canary, and Marshall Islands were closed against British shipping, also that British ships were not allowed to participate m the coasting trade of Belgium, France, Russia Italy, Portugal, Spain, Brazil, and the United States. Lord Lansdowne replied that it was extromely unfair the British coasting trade should be open to foreigners who refuse to reciprocate. If, he said, we preserved our coasting trade exclusively for ourselves, the remedy would prove disadvantageous, and we should lose our foreign re-shipment trade. With reference to the Marshall Islands Germany freely recognised that the convention of 1896 entitled British and German shipping m the Pacific to absolute equality of treatment.
