Began The Secretary Huuln the Iremlcr Over the CoaU and Want to Know What He Is Going to WKleh Seonu Dlffl onlt to Find A Garbled Quotation from John Qiilncy AdamB WASHINGTON CITY July The cor respondence between the American and British relative to the veied Behriagaen qaostton wan laid before con grcas yesterday and Includes the period from AUK 24 1S83 to July 10 1890 The beginning of the correspondence is a com plaint from Lord Salisbury that United States cruisers have stopped searched and soized British vessels on the high seas outside the threemile limit in Beh ring sea and an announcement that Sir Julian Paunceforte would bo prepared on his return to Washington City to discuss the whole subject Both governments ex pressed the hope and belief that the diffi culty could be promptly and isasily set tled to Revenue Cutters Sept 12 1889 the British charge daf fairs Mr Edwtirdes wrote to Secretary Blaino urging that stringent instructions be sent United States cruisers in Beh rings seo to refrain from seizing British vessels in the sea outside the three mils limit Secretary Blaine promptly re pliod that he hoped the matter would rest until the whole subject was taken up by Sir Julian Pixuncefote and himself and that any instructions sent to our vessels at the date of the request would have been too late as they had already sailed for tho sea Oct 3 another note was re oeivod from the British government stat ing that tho British representative would nave full instructions regarding the mat ter The Itrlton Files n Protest In another nota of the same date from Salisbury to Mr Eclwardesand communi cated to Secretary Blaine the marquis of Salisbury referring to the seizure of the Black Diamond and the Triumph rnain ains that from affidavits and reports fur nished by the governor general of Canada these vessels were seized at a distance from land far in excess of the limit of maritime jurisdiction which any nation could claim by international law In the of 1887 Secretary Bayard had communicated unofficially an assurance that no further seizures of this charac ter should take place pending the discussion of the questions involved In view of tha unexpected renewal of the seizures of which her majestys government has reviously complained it is my duty to irotest against them and to atntci that in he opinion of her majestys goveTninent hey are wholly unjustified by interna ional law Jllalnes Reply to the Protest Tha next letter iu the correspondence and the first one from Mr Blaine to Sir ulian Pauncefote on the subject is dated anuary 22 1890 In this letter the secre ary defends the acts complained of by he British government on the following grounds That the Canadian vessels rrested and detained in the Behrings sea tvere engaged in a pursuit in itself contra n pursuit which of necas ity involves a serious and permanent in ury to the rights of the government and eople of the United States That the sheries had been in the undisturbed oisession and under the exclusive control f Hussia from their discovery until the ession of Alaska to the United iStales in 807 and that from this date onwards nttl 1886 they had also remained in the un istnrbed possession of tho United States ovornment He claims from friendly ations a recognition of the same rights onceded to Russia The Law of the illgh Seas Salisbury replied to the above in a letter ated May 2ia and questions whether ho taking of seals as complained of is ontra bonos mores nnd even if so hether it justifies the seizures made by he United Status He says It is an xloni of International maritime law that uch action is only admissible in the piracy or In pursuance of special inter ational agreement This principle has universally admitted by jurists and as very distinctly laid down by President yler iu his special message to congress ated Feb 37 1843 when after acknowl g the right to detain and search a ves 1 on suspicion of piracy he goes on to y With this single exception no na ana axter going over the entire contro versy again protests against the British government protecting vessels in doing violence to seal life He is nuprised that Salisbury should do this because It seems Inconsistent with his former declarations Blaine then goes into a recital of former negotiations wherein Salisbury had agreed to regulations for seal fishing sug gested by the American government clared herself entirely satisfied and promised to introduce a bill in parliament in accordance with said regulations which he had no doubt would promptly pass Blaine then complains that Salisbury at the last moment announced that nothing eould be done without the consent of Canada A fact that should have been stated earlier in the interest of candor No Claim of Mare Clattsum The above took place while Phelps was minister to England The same proposals were made Sir Julian Pauncetote readily accepted by him after the change of ad ministration in this country and every thingagain looked like a settlement Blaine says that no obstacle were pre sented by the United States no insis tence was made upon Behrlngs sea as mare clauBum but these negotiations were as suddenly broken off as the pre vious ones by the interposition of Canade Then when correspondence was resumed in April last an offer was madefor a mixed commission of experts to decide tha question The propositions made by Lord Salisbury in 1888 and ths proposi tions made by her majestys minister in in 1H90 are in significant con trast The circumstances are the same the conditions are the same the rights of the United States are the same in both years The position of England has changed because the wishes of Canada have demanded the change A Salty Communication The letter is a very caustic communica tion and imputes decided shiftiness to the British premier with a hint that negotia tions are difficult with a country when what it agrees to is likely to be set aside because one of its dependencies objects He draws a contrast between the author ity of Great Britain in Canada and the United States iri one of its states show ing that England has much the greater authority and then asks Can the gov ernment of the United States be expected to accept as final the decision of the gov ernment of Great Britain that an agree ment with the United States cannot be fullfllled because the province of Canada objects Salisbury Bacfca Water June 2 Blaine wrote Pauncefote asking if Salisbury would agree for n single sea son to exclude British vessels from Beh ring regxilation that in 1888 he of fered to make permanent The reply to this was that Salisbury was satisfied that the extreme measure proposed ia 1888 to day was beyond the requirements of the case Blaiue wrote relative to the above remark that it needed explanation and said that the president was disappointed that even for the sake of securing an im partial arbitration of the question at issue her majestys government is noi willing to suspend for a smgle season tho pracfice which Lord Salisbury describes in 1888 as the wanton destruction of a valuable in dustry and which this government has uniformly regarded as an unprovoked in vasion of its established rights Nothing Satisfactory to John Bull On June 9th Sir Julian notified Secre tary Blaine that Lord Salisbury regretted the president should think him wanting in conciliation and added that it was en tirely beyond the power of her majestys FRANK AND EENE Otherwise Mrs Leslie and Her Loving Marquis SOME OUEIOUS PACTS SHOTTED The Narrative of London Bogiitrar Re lating to the Beported ican Matrimonial Alliance O to Marry Procured a Year Apart and Neither LeuTllle and Boiom friend Do Some Significant Talking LONDON July sevea suicides of Mr Mantilini and the four confessions of Mrs Elizabeth Tilton are the oply paral lels in fiction and history to the oftre peated rumors and denials of the engage ment of Mrs Frank Leslie to the Marquis de Lenville Nevertheless the prospec tive marriage of so distinguished a jour nalist as Mrs Frank Leslie to a French nobleman with one of the proudest titles ever purchased is of decided interest Hegistrar Frank Hearne in Victoria street is qualified to speak with authority on matters matrimonial Frank and the Marqula He said that Mrs Leslie and the Mar quis de Leuville called upon him on the evening of Thursday July 10 and took out a marriage license Mrs Leslie was to sail for America on Saturday and she desired to have the ceremony performed on Friday Registrar Hearne said he in formed her that one whole day must elapse between the issuance of the license and the ceremony Mrs Leslie then said that she would be compelled to leave London at 9 oclock on Saturday morn ing to catch the City of Rome and that she must then be married early Saturday morning The registrar was asked if he was the lady was Mrs Leslie as De Leuville is quite capable of obtaining the services of some one to personate her What Happened In 1889 He said She is the same lady to whom I granted a license last year I issued a license to the same persons last August I could not swear that the Mrs Leslie but I have every reason to believe that sho was Tho registrar described Mrs Leslie perfectly At the veatry of fice in Mount street Grosvenor square the notices of marriage were inspected There it was learned that Mrs Leslie and the Marquis de Leuville filed notice of an intention of marriage on Aug 19 1S90 De Leuville described himself as Will SO 73 The Delightful SUMMER RESORTS OF Northern Michigan Reaohed by the

exercised by the con sent of the nations involved Jurisdiction in Delirlug Sea Replying to the alleged exclusive mo nopoly of Russia iu the seal fisheries ad vanced as Blaines second argument Salisbury says After Russia at the in stance of the RussianAmerican Fur com pany claimed in 1821 the pursuits of com merce whaling and fishing from Behring straitsto the 5lst degree of north lat itude and not only prohibited all for eign vessels from landing on the coasts and islands of the above waters but also prevented them from approaching within 100 miles thereof Mr Quiucy Adams wrote as follows to the United States min ister in Russia The United States can admit no part of these claims Thair right of navigation and fishing is perfect and his been inconstant exercise from the earliest times throughout the whole ex tent of the Southern ocean subject only to the ordinary exceptions and exclusions of the territorial jurisdiction The mar quis then quotes a case to prove that the right c f fishing included the right of seal ing Not a Marc Clanantu From the speech of Mr Sumner when introducing the question of the purchase of Alaska to congress it is equally clear that the United States governme nt did not regard themselves as purchasing a monopoly Having dealt with furbear ing animals he went on to treat of fisher ies ami after alluding to the presence of different species of whales in the vicinity of the Aleutians said No sea is mare clausum all of these may be pursued by a ship under any flag except directly on the coast within its territorial limit Re plying to Secretary Elaines statement that fjom ISO to 1SS6 the possession of seal fisheries was enjoyed by sht United States without intrusion or interruption from any source Salisbury cites instances proving that Blaine is wrongand that Brit ish vessels were engaged at intervals dur ing that time in sealing without opposi tion from the United States Salisbury Charged With Shuffling Blalne replies to this on Mav 29 1890 government to excude British or Can adian ships from any portion of the high seas even for an hour without legislative sanction To this Secretary Blaine on June 11 replied that it would satisfy this government if Lord Salisbury would by public proclamation simply request that vessels sailing under the British flag should abstain from entering Behring sea for the present season If this was com plied with there would be full time for impartial negotiations and friendly con clusion of the differences between the two governments On June 27 Sir Julian notified Secretary Blaine that constitu tional difficulties would preclude her majestys government from ncceding to this request Discrediting a Quotation On June SO Secretary Blaini wrote to Sir Julian Pauncefote and referring to al leged declarations and admissions of Pres ident Adams of 1821 about the claims of Russia over Bohring sea as quoted by Lord Salisbury says The quotation which Lord Salisbury makes is unfor tunstely n most defective erroneous aid misleading one The conclusion is sepa rated from the premisea comma is turned into a period an Important qualification as to time is entirely erased without even a suggestion that it had ever formed a part of the text and out of eiihtyfonr words logically and inseparably con nected tliirtySve are dropped from Mr Adams paragraph in Lord quotation No edition of Mr Adamu works gives authority for his lordships quotation while the archives of this de partment plainly disclose its many errorik Conclusions or inferencesMr Blaine sayn resting upon the paragraph as quoted by Lord Salisbury with the material parts omitted are of course valueless Some Positions Later on after discussing and reviewing the history of the acquisition of Russian possessions in North America he reasserts that during all the time between 1885 and the cession of Alaska to the United States in 1867 Great Britain never affirmed the right of her subjects to captnre seals in the Behring sen and repeats questions which he asked last January and which stili remain unanswered Whence did the ships of Canada derive the right to do in 1SSO that which they had refrained from doing for nearly ninety years The Iate9t Proposition The last letter m the correspondence la from Secretary Blaine to Sir Julian Pauncefote dated July 19 inst in which he says he is instructed by the pres ident

ever manufactured and decorated with nil the modern designs in brocades There entered a gray and cadaverous person of masculine gender who announced himself as Capt the dearest friend of the marquis He was asked why Mrs Leslie so persistently denied the fact of the engagement to De Lenville when that fact was on record My lord is not at home at present siiid Capt Humber but I am sure if he were here he would say that if the lady chosei to deuy the fact of the engagement he would uphold her in whatever she said Captain numbers Observations Captain Humber then said that he had chanced to be standing in front of Regis trar Hearnes on the evening of Thursday July 10 when a hansom cabman whose vehicle was standing before the door accosted him with the remark The Marquis de Leuville has just gone in there with a rich American lady whom he is going to marry It struck the captain as so remarkable a coincidence that he should happen to be there and that the cabman happened to be there also and I likewise the horse and eke the hansom that he remained until the marquis and Mrs Leslie came out and drove a way with out teeing him I am sure said the captain that my lord will desire to have tlhe matter kept as quiet as possible how ever and that in no event will he consent to be interviewed on the subject Cannot Contradict a Lalv The correctness of Capt Humbers esti mate of William Bane
