Washington, D. 0., September 26’, 1884.

Dear Sir: fls the time is drawing near when the .Morton case will be decided
by the Supreme Court, we desire to respectfully state for your information the fol—

' ' .Z. The case will be argued by us jointly.

2. We asle nothing whatever for our services if we do not succeed in obtaining
a favorable decision, and never have and never shall demand from those inter—
ested a “ retainer. ”

3. T he case having been advanced on the trial docleet through our individual

, ejforts, will, we expect, be reached as early as in the middle of .N'ovember next. we
tools for the decision about January 1st next. If, as we hope and believe, the deci-
sion is a favorable one, settlement of the claims under it will begin immediately,
in the order in which the claims were filed.

Having thus brie/1y slated these three points, which you naturally expect to be
explained by us, especially after what Capt. .Morton has seen fit to say in his cir—
cular of the 1 st inst, of which a number have been sent to us by our clients, we can-
not helo going a little more fully into the 1st and 9d points.

It is unnecessary, we believe, to again trouble you with a recital of flfr. .llfoberley’s
action in the case so far, as you, no doubt, are fully aware that whatever credit there
is due for the favorable decision by the Coart of Claims, is in all justice due him.

.tlfoberlei/ (5“ Strylcer were the attorneys of record in the case before that Court and ~
they have been certified to the Supreme Court as such attorneys. .tltr. Strylcer is

" not a member of the bar. consequently only till. .tlIoberley is left to argue the case.
Deeming the assistance of an experienced counsel desirable, he has associated Gen.
Rutherford with him, an action which is entirely proper under the rules of the

./1t this stage of the proceedings the Court will, of course, ignore Capt. Jlforton’s
attempt to supersede .tlfr. .llfoberley as his attorney, wholly, for the reasons already
stated, and .Mr. ./1:[ol)erley need not fear to be thas deprived of the honor of conduct-
ing the case to its final settlement. .N'ererthetess. we must say that we regret c.17-
ceedingly that Capt. .x‘lfort on, an o/ficer of the ./l.rmy, should even attempt to deprive
his counsel of the well—earned distinction of being the attorney to whom the
..drmy O/ficers are outta/y indebted for the favorable decision which has been given
in the Court of Claims, and which we feel will be upheld by the Supreme Court.

.//_s regards Capt. .llrlorton’s proposal made in his circular. to hire competent
counsel other than .hfr. .Mobertey to represent the case in the Supreme Court, we
need not say that it is not only an uncalled—for proposal, but one which he can—
not earry out; .lfr. .tlfoberley is his counsel and will remain such.

' The demand made by Capt. .tlforton for money-eontributions from all interested,
with which to pay the “able lawyer * t" * a good round fee ” is equally un—
warranted, and we not only hope, but request, that you pay no attention what-
ever l'o it.

I n conclusion, we would state that Capt. .tlforton’s statement that he has been
to some expense already, is not, as far as we are alvare, correct, unless the Cap-
tain means to count the postage on three letters which he sent to .T'llobcrley §~ Strylcer.
He has been to no expense whatever besides this postage; if he has, we never _
heard of it. Capt. .Morton’s case was brought merely as the test case by .Mr. flIober-_
ley himself, in the interest of some two hundred other officers who had entrusted
their cases to him. Capt. .Morton did not even know that his case had been pre—
sented to the Court of Claims until he saw that fact stated in the army papers.
..Mr. .tlfoberley brought suit in his name on July .28, 1883 .' Capt. .Morton did not

» even lcnow of this for some months later, and he submitted rather ungraciously
to the institution of the suit, so that the claim which he now appears to set up,

‘ that he himself had the suit brought for the benefit of his fetlow—o/jieers, seems
rather out of place. ,

' TVe enclose extracts from Capt. .Morton’s letter to .tlloberley {5* Strylcer, of Se;;.
tember It, 1883, which he wrote when he learned that suit had been brought in his
name, and which substantiates what we say.

The Government of the French Republic, and the Government of His
Britannic Majesty, signatories of the Convention for the pacific settlement
of International disputes, concluded at The Hague, July 29, 1899,

Considering that by Article 19 of this Convention, the High Contract-
ing Parties reserved to themselves the conclusion of agreements in view
of recourse to arbitration in all cases which they judged capable of sub-
mission to it,

Have authorized the undersigned to agree as follows :

ARTICLE I._—l )ifferences of a judicial order, or relative to the interpre-
tation of existing treaties between the two Contracting Parties, which may
arise, and which it may not have been possible to settle by diplomacy,
shall be submitted to the Permanent Court of Arbitration established by
the Convention of July 29, 1899, at The Hague, on condition, however,
that neither the vital interests, nor the independence or honour of the
two Contracting States, nor the interests of any State other than the two
Contracting States, are involved.

ARTICLE lI.~In each particular case the High Contracting Parties, be-
fore addressing themselves to the Permanent Court of Arbitration, shall
sign a special undertaking determining clearlythe subject of dispute, the
extent of the Arbitral powers and the details to be observed in the consti-
tution of the Arbitral Tribunal and the procedure.

ARTICLE III.——The present arrangement is concluded for a duration of
five years from the date of signature.

LONDON, ONO/16” 1.], 1903.


ARTICLE XIX.~lndependent1y of existing general or special treaties
imposing the obligation to have recourse to arbitration on the part of any
of the Signatory Powers, these l’owcrs reserve to themselves the right to
conclude. either before the ratification of the present Convention, or sub-
sequent to that date, new agreements, general or special, with a view of
extending the obligation to submit controversies to arbitration, to all
cases which they consider suitable for such submission.

The Commission invites your attention to the opportunity which now exists for graduates of
colleges and normal schools, including students who will graduate in 1905, to qualify for appointment
in the Philippine Service. Two examinations are pending for this service, namely, the Assistant
examination and the Teacher examination. From the Assistant examination it is desired to appoint
cligibles to the position of teacher and to other positions in the administrative departments in that
service. This examination affords the best opportunity for college men to place on record their
qualifications for special as well as for general work.

Practically all of the positions undor thc insular government are subject to civil service regulations
and promotions are based upon the records of efliciency of employees. _
