TREATY OF COMMERCE.

The treaties of commerce entered into, respectively, on the 4th of July and the 19th of August, 1892, between the Republic of Uruguay and the Argentine Republic with the French Republic were proclaimed at Paris on the 10th of June, 1893. France and Uruguay reciprocally guarantee to each other treatment upon the footing of the most favored nation in everything relating to the “ domiciliation and settlement of their respective citizens in their respective territories, and in all matters connected with commerce, navigation, the importation, exportation, and transit of merchandise, the assessment and payment of customs duties, and all acts and operations required for the carrying out of commerce or of any industry, and the payment of taxes or charges.”

But the Republic of Uruguay reserves the right to grant for her own benefit, and whenever deemed by her to be advisable, for any one of her neighbors—Brazil, the Argentine Republic, or Paraguay—special commercial favors and advantages without thereby entitling France to claim the same privilege. This exception does not apply, however, to a certain number of articles, such as wines, manufactures of silk, wool, or cotton, passementerie articles, refined sugar, prepared skins and furs, leather or skin articles, house furniture, implements, machinery, and in general all articles of merchandise similar to the French, which shall always fall under the general provision.

The coastwise trade in each country is also exempted from the operation of the treaty and left subject exclusively to the respective municipal legislation.

The Franco-Argentine treaty, which substantially contains no more than one provision, stipulates expressly that no favor or immunity of any kind shall ever be granted by either nation to the flag or the commerce of another nation without the same favor or immunity being per se and ipso facto granted to the flag or the commerce of the Argentine Republic or of France, and that in consequence thereof citizens, as well as vessels and merchandise, of either country, in the territory or within the jurisdiction of the other, will ever be treated, especially in so far as customs duties are concerned, upon the same footing as the citizens, vessels, and merchandise most favored either by law or treaty.

[graphic]

Both treaties shall remain in force until the expiration of one year subsequent to the date in which either contracting party gives notice to the other of its desire to terminate the agreement.
