What did the Republicans believe about the Jay Treaty?
Who was the American envoy that negotiated the Treaty of London and served as the first Chief Justice of the United States?
John Jay. Jay served as Chief Justice from 1789-1795, when he was elected Governor of New York. The Treaty of London (also called the Jay Treaty, 1794) helped avert another war with the British, but was unpopular with American citizens because they believed Jay capitulated too much to Great Britain's demands. Jay's successor, John Rutledge, burned Jay in effigy in the streets of Charleston, SC, in protest of the treaty's provisions. This action eventually lead to a Federalist Congress rejecting Rutledge's appointment as second Chief Justice, ostensibly on the grounds that he was mentally unstable.

Why was Jay's Treaty unpopular with the people?
Jay's Treaty was so unpopular because it really didn't settle anything between America and Britain and because John Jay failed to open up the profitable British West Indies trade to Americans. Jay's treaty was to stop Britain from impressing American sailors, but it never resolved that. It did resolve a few problems though. Britain troops to leave forts in Northwest territory. Solve disputes with debts from the revolutionary war. And deal with some issues dealing with the U.S. / Canadian border.
