Thirty Toachlnr on the Seal Fisheries Troubles Between the United States and Great BritainCapital July today scut to the house of representa tives in answer to the resolution intro daced by the oflicial correspondence between the government of the United States and the government of Great Britain touchingon the fisheries of Bchring In his accompanying letter of trausmittal to the Secretary under date of Bar July regrets the delay in transmission which the president direct ed on the llth and says that the correspondence is still The correspondence includes thirty separate beginning with a letter from the first secretary of the legation and charge d after Minister Wests recall dated August and closing with one from Secre tary Blaine to Sir the British minister dated July In his first letter Edwards refers to reported search and seizure of liritish vessels in Behring sea and under instruc tions of the Marquis of Salisbury that stringent instructions be sent by the United States at the earliest moment to their oflkers to prevent a recurrence of such The letter also refers to the fact that when secretary of had assured Great Britain that pending the settlement no further Inter ference with British vessels should take 1lainc replied that it was the earnest desire of the president to come to a satisfactory understanding and ex pressed the belief that all the points at issue wore capable of prompt adjust correspondence between Ed and Secretary Blaine was contin ued at some and it appears that Blaine inquired what authority there was for the above stated assurance of Edwards said that it was an assurance communicated unoflicially by the United States minister in London and also by Bayard to Minister West in The correspondence between Secre tary Blainc mid the new British minister commenced January of this with a very long letter from the secretary to Sir Julian In this letter Blaiuc goes over the whole question and says it is the opinion of the president that tlte vessels arrested were engaged in a pursuit that was in itself contra bonos IJIaine contended that ever since this government acquired rights in Behring sea she maintained undisturbed possession uniil and these rights she and Kussia had established and en joyed for nearly a InlSSU the secretary said certain Canadian vessels asserted their right to enter and by their ruthless course to destroy the The government of the United States at once proceeded to cheek this move which unchecked was sure to do picat and irreparable Regard ing Englands claim that seizures were made on tin high seas Blaine says it is doubtful whether her tnajestys govern ment would abide by this rule if an at tempt were made to interfere with pearl fisheries of Ceylon which extend more than twenty from the shore line and have been enjoyed by England with out inolistation ever since their acquisi On IVbrnary Hi the British minister wrote that his government was willing adopt tin suggestion made in the course of their interview that the tripar tite negotiation suspended in London in 3880 lie resumed in Washington and recommends 1 his government certain provisional measures to remove appre hensioii of

ne involves serious and permanent injury to Hie rights of the government and the people of the United the marquis says It is obvious that two questions are win1 I the pursuit and killing of fur seals certain part of the open sea from Hie point of view of international an offense runlrd Itmiux sec if such be the this fact juslilied the seizures on the high seas uud subsequent in a time of of the private vessels of a friendly The pursuit of seals in the open sea under whatever has never hith erto been considered as piracy by civil ized Fur seals are indisputably animals and they have universally been regarded by tourists as TCR iiiitriix until tiiev are caught no can property given them until he has actually reduced them into possosinn by It re quires something more than mere declar ation that the government or citizens of the United or even countries in terested in the seal trade are losers by a certain course of proceedings render that course an immoral Her maj estys government would deeply regret the pursuit of fur seals in the high seas by British vessels should involve even the slightest injury to the peo ple of the United If the case be proved they will be ready to consider what measures can be prop erly taken for the remedy of such but they would be unable on that ground to depart from the principle on which free commerce on the high seas de Respecting Blaines statements of the exclusive monopoly enjoyed by the marquis quotes from a letter of the United Slates minister in which nation in 3S1 prohibited all foreign ves sels from approaching within one hun dred miles from the coast of straits to the fiftyfirst degree north lati tude to the effect that the United States could admit no part of these The marquis also says Blaiue must liave been h misinformed respecting uninterrupted possession of the United States from 18Cr to and submits extracts from re reports of the United States officers to show that during that time British ves sels were engaged at intervals in fur seal fisheries with the cognizance of the United States The next letter in the series is from the British minister to Blaine under date of and says as the secretary has confirmed the newspaper statements that revenue cutters had been ordered to Behriug sea to seize foreign he is instructed to say a formal protest against interference with British vessels will be forwarded without Secretary on the wrote Sir ulian that he is instructed by the president to protest against the course o the British government in authorizing encouraging and protecting vessels which are not only interfering with American rights in Behring but which are doing violence as well to the rights of the civilized Thi he is surprised that sucl protest should be authorized by Lore especially because the prcviou declarations of his lordship would seem tc render it The secretary the rapidly sketched the history of the nego tiations under previous administrate says You will observe from th llth of to the 23rd o Lord Salisbury had in ever form of speech assented to the neccssit of a close of the season for the protects of These assurances were given to the American to the Amvi can to the Russian and on more than one occasion to them Tlic United States had no reason therefore to doubt that the whole dispute touching the seal fisheries was practically Continuing Secretary Blaine says that five days after that assurance Lord Salisbury said that neither act of parliament nor an order in council could be drafted is heard Ihelps in his dis patch of September 12th reported that his lordship stated the Canadian gov ernment objected such restric tions and until its consent could be ob tained her majestys government was not willing to enter into the Says the secretary This government cannot but feel that Lord Salisbury have dealt more frankly if in the beginning he had so informed Minister The British government would assuredly and rightfully complain if the agreement between her representatives and the representatives of the United States without be broken off by the United States on the ground that the state of California was not wil ling it should be In conclu he in behalf of the presi that her majestys government agree not to permit its vessels to enter Behring sea this in order that time may be secured for negotiations that shall not be disturbed by untoward events or unduly influenced by popular On June 2d the secretary writes Sir Julian that the president believes arbi tration cannot be concluded in time for this season and suggests that Lord Salis bury make for a single season the regula tion which in 1888 he offered to make as a step which would cer tainly lead to a friendly To this the minister June that a further examination of the ques tion has satisfied his lordship that such an extreme measure as that proposed in 1888 goes far beyond the requirements of the There would be no legal power to enforce the observance of such an agreement of British replying July said the extreme measure proposed came from Lord Salisbury and con cludes The president does not conceal his disappointment that even for the sake of securing impartial arbitration her majestys government is not willing to suspend for a single season a practice which Lord Salisbury described In 1888 as the wanton destruction of a valuable and which this government lias uniformly regarded as an unprovoked invasion of its established On June 9th Sir Julian Iauncefote pre sents a copy of a telegram from Lord Salisbury in which he requests the presi dent should think him wanting in can celation but that it is beyond the power of his government to exclude British or Canadian ships from any portion of the high even for an without legislative In on the Secretary Blaine says this government would be satisfied if Lord Salisbury by pro simply request British vessels to abstain from entering Behriug for the present in order to give full time for impartial Sir Julian on June writes Blaine that he has informed Lord Salisbury that Secretary Blaine could not give as surance that British sailing vessels would not be interfered with during the in vestigations and expresses a hope that the decision is not final and that while there is yet time the commanders of the United States revenue cruisers will be instructed to On June minister with regret at failing to solve a favorable presents the formal protest of the British In the protest he in part The British government cannot admit the right of the United States of their own notion to restrict the freedom of navigation in Behring nor to enforce municipal legislation against British vessels on the high Her Britannic majestys government unable to pass without the public announcement of the intention on the part of the United States to renew the acts of interference with British vessels navigating outside the territorial waters of the United of which they had previously to The minister in conse instructed formally to protest against such interference and to declare her Britannic majestys government must hold the government of the United States as responsible for consequences thai may ensue from acts which are con trary to the established principles of in The on June replies Blames proposition looking i a by her majestys gov rnnieut that British vessels shall not Her Behring sea during the coming The minister writes that Lord alisbury says the request presents con litulional difficulties which would pre ude her majestys government from ac eding to except as a part of the gen ral scheme for the settlement of ontroversy and on certain hich are That the governments agree orthwith to refer to arbitration the uestion of the legality of the action of lie United States in seizing or otherwise iiterferiug with British vessels engaged n liehring sea outside of the territorial vaters during 1887 and that ending award all interference with ritish sealing vessels shall absolutely case that the United if the ward should bo adverse to will ompensate the liritish subjects for osses which they may sustain by reason f their compliance with the British In the next dated the irst of the present Lord Salis referring to Blaines criticism upon lie abrupt close of the London negotia quotes from a statement made to Im by United States Minister Phelps as ollows Under the peculiar political circumstances of America at this mo said with the general lection it would be of little and hardly practicable to onduct any negotiation to its Issue be ore the election had taken On the last of June Secretary Blaine addressed to the British minister a very oug letter in answer to Lord Salisburys in which letter the sec retary stated that John Quincy Adams irotestcd against Russias claim to ex clusive jurisdiction over Behring Secretary Blaine says The questions which Lord Salisbury makes s unfortunately a most orro jieous and misleading The conclu sion is separated from the A comma is turned into a an impor tant qualification as to time is entirely without even a suggestion that it nad ever formed part of the anc out of one hundred and eightyfour logically and inseparably con thirtyfive are dropped from Adams paragraph in Lord Salisburys The secretary says further Neither by the treaty with Russia o nor by its renewal o nor by its second renewal in 1859 did Great Britain gain any right to take seals in Behring In fact these treaties were a prohibition upon whicn she steadily respected so long as Alaska was a Russian province It is for Great Britian now to show by what law she gained rights in that sea after the transfer of its soverignity to the United During all the time between the treaty of 1825 and the ces sion of Alaska to the United States in 18C7 Great Britian never affirmed thi rights of her subjects to capture fur sea in Behring and as a matter of fac her subjects did during that long

discovery of that sea By what reasoning did her maj estys government conclude that an act may be committed with impunity against he rights of the United States which lad never been attempted against the same rights when held by the Russian empire The thirtieth and last letter of the correspondence which if printed fill over twenty newspaper col was addressed by Blaine to Sir Julian from Bar ast In it the secretary says I am instructed by the president to say hat the United States is willing to con ider all the proceedings of April as so far as American rights may be This govern ment will ask Great Britain to adhere mly to the agreement made between xird Salisbury and Phelps on the 25th of That was an agreement made directly between the wo governments and did not In lude the rights ot
