YELLOW FEVER ON BOARD. Three Men Dead nncl Othent Two Able to Work. NEW YORK, Feb. The three-masted schooner A. M. Bnuid, et of St. Johns, N. P., sailed for that port thirty days ago from Barcelona, Venezuela. Sim came into port yesterday and is anchored ofT Quarantine. It is said by the health authorities that she has yellow fever on board.

L'npt.

N, Feb. as._ Voting Abraham Lin- erwent another surgical operation yesterdai afternoon with the result that he is -bevcsl of pain and his symptoms .illv inoro favorable. A drain was Dcbttlic the Expediency of KeUlUtioB. OTTAWA, Out, Feb. In the house ot commons yesterday Mr. Taylor's contract labor bill, which is an exact counterpart of the American law on this subject, came up for a second reading. It came out that Mr. Taylor had taken upon himself the authority to issue a proclamation last summer warning American fishing parties which crossed into Canada along the St. Lawrence river that they would be liable to heavy penalties under the fishery act. Sir John Macdonald admitted that Mr. Taylor made out a strong case. The Ameri- can government to all appearances had acted unneighborly, thus causing indignation along the border. He imagined, however, that the legislation was aimed at European immigra- tion rather than intended for Canada. The position of the countries was different. While we wanted more the Americans were seeking to protect tholr domestic labor. He proposed an adjourn- ment of the debate. 8ir Richard Cartwright scored Mr. Taylor for issuing a warning to American fishermen and others. The Dominion had a minister of marine, but he never realised before that it owned an admiral. Hon. Mr. Laurier thought the bill was un- necessary. The American legislation was not conceived in any spirit of hostility to Canada, and remonstrances would probably produce a beneficial effect. Mr. Lister, coming from West Latnbton, a border county, agreed that this course was the safest. If representations failed then he would favor a retaliatory measure. Sir John Thompson admitted that consid- erable harshness had attended the enforce- ment of the American act, but could not support any proposal for a policy of reprisal. It was all very well to figure that Canada should be exempted. This could not be done unless an exception were made likewise In favor of every British subject An exemp- tion in the case of Canada meant that this country should prove the weak point in the American wall. If this were done thousands of foreigners would flock here to gain en- trance to the United States. He regretted that Canadian currency on deposit In Amer- ican banks was taxed as personal property. This could be remedied as it was author- ized by statute. In regard to the labor question he saw no -ws of any change in the existing legisla- n. The subject was brought before the attention of the American government two months ago when twomembersof the Domin- ion government visited Washington. While not oxiwcting any change they urged the sec- tion. Against ISInlmp E.her. SriAMiiKi.v, Pa., Feb. Bishop J.

The American cabinet minister in reply said that it was far from the American government's intention to annoy Canada The law existed and it was within the sphere if the humblest American to see that it was inf orced. Investigation would show that the American officers along the boarder had per- formed their duty under compulsion from private individuals. Canada did not possess population and it would be unwise to enact similar legislation. THKY TELL W TALKS. WASHINGTON NEWSPAPER CORRE- SPONDENTS REMAIN SILENT. Hot Oil. of Them Will llrrath.

J ules Gut bridge of the New York Herald wai questioned as to whether he obtained any of the information published in his pajier from any niemlicr or employe of the senate, and he declined to answer the questions. Several other questions of alike character were put to him with the same unsatisfactory result. A. J.

He declined txi answer questions us lo whether he had ever discussed executive matters with senators or employes of the senate or not, or whether lie was in the habit of talking with senators, about executive matters or not. In answer to a question of Senator Dolph about the publication of the British extradition treaty in the New York Tribune, Mr. Bain said he had seen what purported to be a copy of the treaty, and he was glad to learn on t.he authority of the chairman of the committee that it was a correct ami authentic copy. Mr. Bain finally stnlo.il to the committee that ho would give noalMrniativoor negative answer to any question bearing on the ques- tion where lie obtained executive news.

Sir John Macdonald Con unpin Silence on the Flnherlei Question. OTTAWA, Feb. 28.-In parliament yester- day Hon. Peter Mitchell asked tho govern- ment if their attention had been called to a telegraphic report published In the press to the effect that the Russian government had itireoted its ambassador at Washington to take part in the negotiations in relation to the Behring sea. It looked as if the contention on the part of the United States that Behring sea was a closed sea, had been given up. If this was true hold matter stood well for Canada. In reply Sir John Maodonald said: "1 do not think it is in the interest of Canada that we should enter into a discussion or state precisely what we believe to be the state of affaire, because anything said will be pub- lished in the United States. It is infinitely better that this matter be not discussed now in this house while it is under discussion at Washington. Canada is represented there as well as England. The United States and Russia are also represented, and are eonsid- the best means of preventing the ex- termination of the seal. I am glad to Inform the house that at present everything is look- ing as satisfactory as we could wish. It Didn't Stop the Leak.
