By Associated Press. 1 WASHINGTON, Dec. is learned on the highest authority that there is no truth in the report that the Presi- dent, before he will issue his Colum- bian World's Fair proclamation, will require of the subscription to be paid in cash to Treasurer Soolberger. It is learned also from the name Bource that his proclamation will be ready for issu- ance very soon, probably next week. Secretary Buttervvorth and Peck's visit to the White House to-day was for the purpose of laying before the President additional papers bearing upon the validity of the subscriptions for the Fair. These established abso- lutely the binding character of the subscriptions and, it is believed, has settled nil remaining doubts of the bona fide character of the subscrip- tions, attested by the fact that under the 20 nor cent, call more than 000 was paid in in cash'of the total of sulisci Vrr.v .HuMpicioun.

An Old Pioneer Oone to Kent After am Kventfnl l.lfe. The sad news of the death of Allen B. Evans, formerly of Long Valley, but now of San Francisco, was received here this morning. He died last night after being confined to his bed for several months past. He had lost thu use of his lower limbs, and was almost helpless. He leaves a wifo, a sister, Mrs. Mary E. Atrow- pniith and three brothers, Newton, Alvaro and A. A. Evans of Reno to mourn his loss. Pete Evans and Mrs. Arrow-smith leax-e for San Francisco to-night. Mr. Evans was born in Ohio OB the 7th day of April, 1832. He came to Long Valley in 1859. and with his brothers, Alvaro and Newt, were among the first settlers of that section. For years they there and endured the privations of the pio- neer, and wade for themselves a lovely and happy home. About seven years SKO the place was sold to John M. Rhodes, when Mr. Evans took up his residence in San Francisco, where he has since resided. A Hemarkable Murder Cane. By Cable and Associated Press.] PARIS, Dec. trial of Mich- ael Eyraud and Gabrielle Bompard for the murder of Notary Gouffe was continued this morning. The proceed- ings were opened by the public prose- cutor, who summoned up the case on behalf of the Government. He de- nounced the theories of the Nancy School of Hypnotizers, and urged that persons who are hypnotized retained sufficient will power to resist the oper- ator's will. He said that Professor Charcots experiments showed that no operator could bring a subject so ab- solutely under his control as to force him or her to commit a crime; that the theories of the Nancy School are on a par with fortune telling with cards. If such theories are once ad- mitted, personal responsibility will be at an end, and the laws on which so- ciety depended for protection would disappear in anarchy. Both prisoners were equally guilty, and the evidence showed that everything in the room in which the crime was committed was prepared for hanging Gouffe, and it was idle to assert the contrary. It was the jury's duty to reject the story of the woman, who is as culpable as her companion, who frankly avowed his guilt. He demanded that the ex- treme sentence of the law be imposed upon Eyraud. In the case of Mile. Bompard, the jury must decide whether there were any extenuating circumstances in the part she had taken fn the crime. Eyraud has been condemned to death and Bompard was sentenced to twenty years at hard labor. Indignant Hotel Men. By Associated Press.1 WATEKVILLE Dec. town of Skowhegan, in this State, has been excited since Thursday morning on account of the closing of every hotel, restaurant and lodging house in the place. The proprietors of the ho- tels and lodging houses were notified that they must take out victulera' li- cense in accordance with the revised statutes, which allows municipal offi- cers to license as inn-keepers and victualers, persons of good moral character, under such restrictions and regulations as they may deem neces- sary. On Thursday they signed an agreement to close for one week and if not then allowed to open under the old conditions, to leave town. Thurs- day morning one hotel turned away 180 guests, and notified them that they must seek entertainment else- where, and the Coburn and Skowhegan house also sent away large numbers'. At the Coburn House Judge White- house, of the Supreme Court, was staying with many attorneys and witnesues. The judge said if the hotels closed he would have to adjourn court and go home. A meeting of the select men and prominent business men was held at the hotel Coburn with the hotel keepers and Judge Whitehouse to see what could be done to adjust matters. The hotel men received an assurance that their action was unauthorized, and they have agreed to open as before. Corner (Stone Laid. Special to the GAZETTE.!

TO A MKAtt, President HarMMa on tnj Weal Klshery fiontroverwy. NEW YORK, Washington special says President Harrison ex- pects to accompany his transmission to Congress of further papers relating to the Behring Sea controversy with a special message expressing his views respecting the rights and claims of the United States connected with the seal fishery, the comparative merits, conduct and position of the two Gov- ernments since the first seizure in 1886, and the duty of Congress in the present position of the question. The message will be framed with especial reference to the pending proposal ol the British Government for arbitra- tion, which proposal it is intended, to The personal bitterness between Elaine and Lord Salisbury that has arisen out of the course of the negotia- tions is supposed here to constitute the material objection to a continu- ance of efforts towards a settlement, especially after the diplomatic rola- tions between tho two Governments shall have been fuither strained by the energetic manner in which Bluiue is preparing to show up the hollowness and unfairness of the Biitish arbitra- tion project. It is because of the seeming hopelessness of the prospect of a settlement by peaceful means, and of the necessity of almost in- stantly resolving upon n new course of conduct for the United States, thut the President has determined to lay the matter fully before Congress, and to apply for legislative assistance in shaping and enforcing a policy iu immediate future. The pending British proposal is to refer to the determination of a friendly and impartial arbitration the question as to whether the seizures of Biitisli sealing vessels by the United States were or were not lawful seizures. To this form of a proposed submission of the case to arbitration the President strenuously objects, and ho never will agree to it unless Congress shall as- sume the responsibility by in some mode yielding its adherence to it. The President will give Congress to understand that in the present state of the matter he perceives neither au- thority nor reason to abstain next sea- son from a literal enforcement of the provisions of the law for the protection of fur seals in Alaska and the waters thereof. He will ask Congress for a liberal appropriation to meet the ex- pense of fitting out chartered vessels to serve as revenue vessels in sufficient number and character to capture and dispose of the numerous marauding vessels expected to enter Pehring Sea next year.
