After a few minutes shooting Cope was killed and sheriff Haskins fatally wounded. Which they had a Small game. And it seems that a sin took a hand an English scandal. London june 2.�?the suit for slander brought by sir William Gordon Cumming against or. And mrs. Arthur Wilson and others for circulating the Story that Cumming was detected cheating at cards at the House of the Wilsons was begun yesterday. The Prince of Wales is one of the witnesses for the plaintiff and when he came into court was Given a seat on the Bench by the Side of judge Coleridge. The court room was packed with aristocrats Many of them ladies while hundreds were unable to obtain cards of admission owing to the room being too Small. History of the Case. Last Winter there was a House party at the country Home of Arthur Wilson a millionaire ship owner and among the guests were the parties to this suit including the Prince of Wales. To pass away the time the guests played cards frequently As is the custom in this country and Baccarat was one of the games the Prince taking a hand. The Story is that when it came the Princess turn to keep the Hank he noticed that sir Gordon Cumming Oue of the players who sat directly opposite him was winning heavily and losing lightly. Suspecting some queer Piny the Prince watched him closely and it is alleged detected Peculiar proceedings. In his hand the baronet held several pieces of Gold. These he would surreptitiously add to his stake when he won while he would slyly reduce his bet when he lost. Denounced As a swindler. Suddenly he was caught in the act denounced As a swindler and the Friendly game wound up in a Row. He protested Liis innocence but his accusers were firm. The Prince finally interfered and suggested arbitration by two gentlemen present he to name them. This was agreed to and the arbitrators decided that All further reference to the matter would let a dropped if sir Gordon would sign an agreement never to play Baccarat again. He agreed to the terms and signed. Unfortunately for All concerned there was a lady in the House who disliked the baronet. Her husband who had witnessed the Row told her of it and she spread the Story. Sir Williams testimony. Sir William took the stand first yester yesterday and denied that he had been guilty of cheating. He said he won because he had a remarkable run of Luck that when he signed the agreement never to play again he did so because advised to by the two gentlemen selected As arbitrators and told them he much preferred to resent the insult by giving his accusers an insult in return. He said that the Prince told him that there were five persons who insisted that he sir William had been guilty and asked what could one do against five. He finally signed the agreement under persuasion. He closed with a solemn denial of the charge. The agreement does not admit in terms the charge against Cumming but admits that he believes that those making the charges believe them to be True. Mobe diplomacy.

He presents Nome Southern objection to or. Cleveland. New York june 2.�? senator Pugh of Alabama while at the Hoffman House in route to West Point said to a reporter who asked him How the South stood in relation to the next democratic candidate for the presidency a emr. Cleveland is opposed to the free coinage of Silver. At least eight tenths of the voters of Alabama want free coinage and naturally want a president in Harmony with their wishes. What is True of a Altama is True pretty generally of the whole South. In All the speeches that he has made Andall the letters he has written or. Cleveland has utterly ignored the Force Bill As an Issue. Now i believe that the Force Bill had More to do than any other thing with bringing about the great Republican washout last fall. A another Southern grievance. A emr. Cleveland too has gone out of his Way recently to apply offensive epithets to the South. In his address to his German friends at Buffalo the other Day he went out of his Way to insult the South. A when the government was assailed by rebellious hands were the words he used in alluding to the late War. Nobody nowadays wants to make an Issue about the vocabulary that should be applied to that momentous event but to say the least it was very bad taste in or. Cleveland to go out of his Way to use such language. Those rebellious hands have helped to make him president and if he is Ever to be president again they will be necessary to his election. Those hands will be there. A those rebellious hands will be at the ballot boxes in the next presidential election and what is More they will he present at the next democratic National convention and their owners will have something to say As to whether or. Cleveland or some other Man shall be candidate. The South expects its political friends to speak of it with consideration and or. Cleveland has gone out of Bis Way to insult it a Gorman would suit Pugh. A senator Gorman seems looming up. How do you like him a a the snits me. He is an Able Man. His Public record is unimpeachable and his private character is without a blemish. He has few enemies within his own party and Many friends outside of it. If Cleveland had followed his advice he would have been re elected in 1888. Or. Gorman would be a Strong democratic candidate and a Good Duquoin ills., june 2.�?the egyptian Coal mine employees went on strike Here yesterday. The cause for the strike is a difference of opinion Between the miners and operators regarding the contract. The operators agree to pay every two weeks with ten hours work a Day. The Meg claim that they were to receive ten hours pay for nine hours work and weekly pay As both sides Are firm an extended period of idleness May be looked for. The american statesman impelled to 8pur up the deliberate britishers tha correspondence that finally led to the action in the British parliament a the plan proposed by Blaine for a modes Vive udi pending arbitration and which the British Premier has accepted. Washington City june 2.�?the state department has made Public the recent correspondence on the Behring sea fishery question. The first communication is from Secretary Blaine to sir Julian Paunce Fote. It is dated May 4, 1891, and says a during the month of March last a few Days after the adjournment of Congress acting under the instructions of the president i proposed to you that a modes Vive udi be agreed upon touching the Seal fisheries pending the result of arbitration of the question at Issue lie tween the two governments. The presidents first pro fms Al which i submitted to you was that no Canadian sealer should lie allowed to come within a certain number of Miles of the Pri Byloff islands. It was however the conclusion of the president after Reading lord Salisbury a dispatch of feb. 21, that this modes Visendi might possibly provoke conflict in the Behring sea and to avoid that result he instructed me to propose that sealing both on land and sea should be suspended during the Progress of arbitration or during the season of 1891. On both occasions it was a conversational Exchange of views the first in my office at the state department the second at my a complaint of delay. Or. Blaine then says that it was the presidents desire to receive a reply that he hoped would be favourable before he left this City of his Western trip but he was disappointed although a Mouth had passed since the proposal was made. Under these circumstances lord Salisbury a silence was construed to mean that the proposal was not satisfactory Anil As the season was advancing and Canadian sealers were preparing in Large numbers to enter Behring sea the president gave orders that the lessees of the Seal fisheries to permitted to take the maximum number of seals this season�?600,000�?subject to the discretion of the government agent at the islands to limit the number As he saw fit. Another complication arises. April 22 Paunce Fote notified Blaine that Salisbury was ready to agree that sealing should be suspended. This was telegraphed to the president then in the West and he replied expressing Bis satisfaction but instructing Blaine to inform Paunce Fote that some seals would have to be killed under the United states contract with the lessees who otherwise would be put under great hardships in consequence of the terms of that contract which imposed certain conditions of said lessees which were both costly and difficult to perform. Paunce Fote is somewhat doubtful. The Secretary tells Pauu Cefole that a you will remember that when i communicated this pro k sit Ion from the president to you of the evening of monday april 27, you did not agree with the presidents suggestion. On the contrary you expressed yourself As confident that Salisbury would not accept it that in your judgment the killing of seals must lie Cut off absolutely on the land and in the water and that it could not be stopped on either unless stopped on both. The president refuses to believe that lord Salisbury can possibly maintain the position you have taken when his lordship is placed in full Possession of the the Lessee a obligations. Or. Blaine then recites the obligations imposed Byroo tract no outre Seal fisheries spen Waters of the Behring sea by any per Sou on any vessel sailing under the British Flag and that no British subject shall cult Gage in killing seals for the time agreed upon on any vessel sailing under any Obei Flag. These prohibitions shall continue until the 1st Day of May 1892, within which time the arbitrators shall Render final award or awards to both governments. A Paunce Fotey reply to Lulaine. Under Date of May 7, minister Paunce Fote replies acknowledging receipt of Blaines communication and announcing that he has forwarded the same to Salisbury telegraphing the exact terms of the proposal by Cable. He regrets that misconception has Arisen regarding the delay complained of and reminds Blaine that when the interviews referred to by him were held he Paunce Fote expressed reluctance at sending any further proposals while Salisbury a dispatch of feb. 21 remained unanswered and hoped that the new proposals would accompany a reply to that dispatch. He understood Blaine to assent and agree to a proceed in that or. he Paunce Fote does not re Merlier that the presidents name was mentioned in these interviews and would certainly have at once telegraphed the proposals if he had so understood the president s desires. That new reservation. Sir Julian says that when the new reservation giving the sealing company the right to kill seals was mentioned to him at first sight it caused him some embarrassment. A it certainly appeared to to open to exception As detracting from the principle of Equality which was a feature of the original proposal. But i was More concerned at your stating that it never was the intention of the president or of yourself that the a modes i Vendit should be put in Force until the terms of arbitration bad been settled. I notice with satisfaction that no such condition is affixed to your present proposal although the reservation As to the Kuling of limited number of seals of the islands a hurrying up the britishers. Paunce Fote closes with the Hope that this explanation May remove the impression of delay of which Blaino complains and the next chapters of the correspondence Are notes from acting Secretary Adi s dated May 20 and 26, both by direction of the president urging the British govern intent to act promptly on the new proposals because the season was rapidly advancing and prompt action was a very needful thing and that Canadian sealers were taking advantage of the delay and there was danger that the object of the modes Visendi would be Defeated if Salisbury did not soon accept the plan. A Spur to British action Ailee in his last note says that the president Hopes that a reply will soon be received a but he can no longer hold Backlu furtherance of a vague Hope to the detriment of the legitimate interests of the government Anil citizens of the United states. I am therefore directed by the president to inform you that orders have been Given to the Revenue Steamer a Bush to proceed to the sealing islands. Another Steamer the a Corwin is at san Francisco nearly ready to sail and will very shortly put to sea. Should an agreement be reached before her departure appropriate orders May still be sent by her to the islands. I mention this in order that you May comprehend How fully this govern meet desires to effect an arrangement for this season and that you May realize How each Days delay lessens the ability of her majesty a government to effectively Coop Erate with regard to British subjects and tends to destroy the practical Utility of an agreement to limit the Seal some English regret expressed to this Paunce Fote replies that he feels a assured that his lordship will greatly regret any inconvenience which May is caused to your government by the impracticability of returning an immediate reply to the proposal contained in or. Bluing a a note to me of the 4th inst. Lord Salisbury As i had the Honor to state to you Verlilly is using the utmost expedition but the lateness of the proposal and the conditions attached to it have Given Rise to grave difficulties As to which Hia lordship Lias necessarily been in communication with the Canadian government. His lessees giving the number of skins said of Rev this nolo rail re up lessees were permitted to take and the conditions under which they were permit Ted to take them. These conditions Are in Brief that a the Means of living the facilities for education the care of health the religious teaching the training of the Young and old in a Community of Over 300 persons Are All imposed upon the company As its solemn duty by specific articles of the lease. I enclose you a copy of the census of 18h0, giving every name of the 306 persons old and Young male and female who constitute the whole Community of the Pri Byloff a costly business for the lessees. It is further urged by or. Blaine that a the duties thus imposed upon the company must be discharged annually with punctuality and exactness. The Comfort possibly the safety of All these human beings peculiarly helpless when left to themselves is dependent upon the company under the lease and the leases Are paid therefor by the government in the Send skins which the company receives for the service. If the company shall As you say lord Salisbury requests be deprived of All privilege of taking seals they certainly could not be compelled to minister to the wants of these 300 inhabitants for an entire year.

No appropriation of Money has been made by Congress for the purpose and the president cannot leave these worthy and innocent people to the Hazard of starvation even to secure any form of agreement with lord Salisbury touching Seal life. Seal life May be valuable but the first duty of the government of the United states in this matter is to protect human life. New proposals submitted. The modes Visendi suggested pending arbitration of the Case. Then the Secretary makes the proposition under which the Bill prohibiting British dealers from taking seals in Behring sea was introduced in parliament last week. He says a in this exigency the president instructs me to propose to lord Salisbury that he concede to the Nort h american company the right to take a sufficient number of seals and no More than sufficient to recompense them for their outlay in taking care of the natives and that in the phrase of the president All a commercial killing of seals be prohibited pending the result of the Secretary of the Treasury has the right to fix the number necessary to the end desired. After fall consideration he has limited the number to seven thousand five Hun area Al Sou to of lulled of the company to repay them for the outlay demanded for the support of the 300 people on the Pri Byloff islands. He further directs that no females be killed and that thus the productive capacity of the Herd shall not in the slightest degree be impaired. A this Point being fixed Ami agreed to the proposed arrangement Between the two countries would be As follows the government of the United states limits the number of seals to be killed on the islands for purposes just described to 7,500. The government of the United states guarantees that no seals shall be killed in the open Waters of the Behring sea by any person on any vessel sailing under the american Flag or by any american cite sen sailing any other Flag.
