Smith said the Bill dealt with a question urgency Aud was prompted by a desire that arrangements a amicable character should be Mado to Settle the dispute. was sure that ail parties would agree that it was better that the difference be determined by Friendly arbitration than by More barbarous methods. A hear heart there had been a delay in submitting the question to parliament owing partly to causes which those who had experience in diplomatic negotiations would us Derstad Aud partly to the illness the Canadian Premier who had earned t he respect everybody who had any knowledge the services he had rendered to the Empire at Large.

The prohibition will c9litluue until 1892, with in which time it was expected the arbitrators would make an award. It was not proposed that an order be issued unless Russia also consented to entire prohibition within Behring sea. Compensation would depend upon the actual loss the ship owners sustained taking into account the increased value fisheries outside Behring Bea that could Only be ascertained by a comparison arrangements for which were As get incomplete.

Cheers sir William Vernon Harcourt agreed with . Smith that a serious Between Eug Lanu and the United states would be a great calamity. The government would always receive the support the opposition in referring International questions to arbitration. The Behring Bea dispute seemed above All others to to one tending itself to arbitration therefore he had nothing to say except to express satisfaction with the course adopted. It was satisfactory to find Canada a party to the arrangement. This was essential. Lie would not enter into details subordinate importance. desired to associate himself with the language . Smith la regard to sir John Macdonald. Or. Stavely Hill conservative approved the arrangement embraced in Tho Bill although he thought the close time for seals ought from october 1 to june 30, to prevail outside Behring sea As Well As within. It was a mistake to suppose that seals within Behring sea were specially in danger extermination. On the contrary his information showed the likelihood there Beisig More seals in Behring sea this year than there have been seen there a Long Gorlod. Sir James Fergusson under foreign Secretary said arbitration would to concerned not Only with the respective rights England the United states Canada la Behring sea but also with measures to preserve the seals. Overtures had been made to Russia for Tho liking a close time. Although no answer had As yet been received it was Guowu that Russia some tune ago was favourable to such a measure. The government assented with reluctance to the United states proposal that 7,500 seals be taken this year. The arrangement was a temporary one for the removal the source difficulty pending arbitration. The matters to be referred to arbitration were still the subject correspondence but the governments steadily approached Points agreement Aud he believed that a reply which was about to be addressed to the u.

The preceding correspondence closed with a note from Secretary Blaine to sir Julian Pace Fote dated april 14, last changing somewhat the six questions proposed to be submitted to arbitration so that in Brief they provide for a determination the old russian rights in Behring Bea the extent their recognition by great Britain the definition the boundaries Behring sea the extent the reversion the russian rights to the United states the right the United states to protect Seal outside the three mile limit the determination the necessary regulations to that end including the limitation the close season and finally the quest Lou the damages sustained by the two parties through Seal killing and through seizures vessels. The additional correspondence begins with a note from Secretary Blaine to the British minister under Date May 4. In which he reminds him that during March he Blaine had proposed that a modes i Veldt be agreed upon to close the Seal fisheries pending the result arbitration the quest Lou Between the two governments. A Al he presidents first proposal which i submitted to you a writes . Blaine a was that no Canadian sealer should be allowed to come within a certain number Miles tbsp Ruby Lott islands. It was however the conclusion the president after Reading lord Salisbury a dispatch february 2i, that this modes Viv Endl might possibly provoke conflict in the Behring Bea Aud to avoid that result he instructed to to propose that sealing both land and sea should be suspended by both nations during the season 1891. On both occasions it was a conversational Exchange views the first in my Attico at the state department the second at my residence. A the president was so desirous a prompt response from lord Salisbury to his second proposition that 1 ventured to suggest that you request an answer by Cable if practicable. Especially was the president anxious to receive a answer which he trusted would be favourable before he should set out his tour to the Pacific a Stales. left Washington the night april 13, without having heard a word from your government. It was Ihen u full month after he had instructed me to open negotiations the question. Aud the Only probable inference was that lord Salisbury would not agree to his Prodos Uon. A the silence lord Salisbury implied As seemed not improbable that he would not restrain the Canadian sealers from entering Behring Bea. And As All intelligence from British Columbia showed that the sealers were getting ready to sail in Large numbers the president found thut he could not with Justice prevent the lessees from taking Seal the pro Buloti islands. The president therefore instructed the Secretary the Treasury who has official charge the subject to Issue to the lessees Tho privilege killing the privy Loff islands the coming season the maximum number sixty thousand 80,090 stale subject however to the absolute discretion Aud Power an agent appointed by the Secretary theleus Ingree that All sealing Ding the result Arbi pril i Tele crapped lord 0 the president. repressing Groat Satis Lisbury a message but m you that a some seals elves for food that the Belr least from the d care for the natives Send a ship to the privy at their Edeuse a and very expensive one the eur compensation in Ink ref seats under the in dosed Bis belief that this readily agreed to by lord Salisbury because the necessity is absolute. A you will remember that when i Comra Fhi rated this proposition from the president to you the evening monday april 27, you did not agree with the president suggestion. Of the contrary you expressed yourself As confident that lord Salisbury would not accept it that in your judgment the killing seals must be Cut off absolutely the land and in the water and that it could not be stopped either unless slopped both. A the narrative facts which i have now Given absolutely necessary for clearly understanding the position this government brings me to a further statement which i directed by the president to submit. The president refuses to believe that lord Salisbury can possibly maintain the position you have taken when his lordship is placed m full Possession the facts which i shall now submit to you somewhat in .

Beal Lif Crniak be valuable but the first duty the government Tho United states in this matter is to protect human life in this Exi fancy the president instruct me to propose to Ord Salisbury that he concede to the North Amerl Cun company the right to take sufficient number 7,&u0 seals Aud no More than sufficient to recompense them for their outlay in taking care oif t e natives and that in the phrase Tho presi Deail a commercial killing it dec ending the result Arbi eng fixed Aud agreed to but Between the two mows the United states limits e killed the lsiaud3, bed to 7,500.

A these propositions shall continue until the first Day May 1892, within which time Tho arbitrator shall Render final award awards to both governments. The several propositions Are submitted for the consideration lord Salisbury. The president believes that they Are calculated to produce u result at once fair and honorable to both governments and thus Lead to the permanent adjustment a controversy which has already been left too Long at Issue. A James g. to this note sir Julian Pauu Cefole replied promptly the next Day May 5 As follows "siu�?1 have forwarded to lord Salisbury by this Days mall a copy your note and i have telegraphed to his lordship the precise terms the proposal with which it concludes.

The president would be glad to know that it is near at hand and certain but he can no longer hold Back in furtherance a vague Hope to the detriment the legitimate interests the government Aud citizens tie United states. A i am therefore directed by the president to inform you that orders have been give to the Revenue Steamer Rush to proceed to the sealing islands. Another Revenue Steamer the Corwin is at san Francisco Early 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 to this Pauu Cefole replied urging that Salisbury was seeking Canadas action in the matter and a determination might arrive at any moment the link Between the correspondence Given ont from London and that from Washington. New York june 1.�?Cable advices from London state that As a even out there the correspondence in the Behring sea Case begins with a Telegram from Salisbury to sir Julian Paunce Fote dated april 17.

The correspondence give out in Loudon follows from this Point the lines an epitome from his own standpoint the correspondence Given out in Wash Ugoh. Tee Kennedy a banned. In View the serious charges against them the amount bail required is insignificant. An attempt to defraud government. The special Treasury agent John a Lincks astounding discovery. Exported american whisky Bermuda re imported As Mestizo spirits fortified do in paying a tax ninety cents per when liable to one $2 50. Gallon some it came to Cincinnati Anjul held by the officials Here the balance seized in new York yesterday. Three leak his arrival in Cincinnati about half a month ago major John w. Lynck special Treasury agent was informed that there was stored at the Export storage company a bonded warehouse Eggleston Avenue some american whisky which had been re imported from Bermuda and that suspicions were entertained that this whisky had been tampered with and manipulated while abroad. Major Lynck with his usual Zeal proceeded to investigate the matter and he became convinced that the whisky had been interfered with while in Bermuda. Investigation proved that the whisky which had come to Cincinnati some fifty barrels had been re imported into new York by n. Hoffheimer amp co., and was stored Here in the name Geo. Herzog amp co. The proof the whisky was unusually High and the outage correspondingly Small. It was Learned that whisky which has been stored in Bermuda is Cut in proof by the atmosphere from two to degrees in a year and that from age and evaporation the outage averaged about two to three Gallons in the Barne period. Now this whisky had been exported to Bermuda in 1883, and had been there for about seven years. So it naturally would have lost in proof from 20� to25c a barrel while the outage would have been from fifteen to Twenty Gallons a barrel. Thus it appears that the Bermuda whisky averages when returned to America from Twenty five to thirty proof Gallons a barrel while the proof runs from 90� to As Low As 00�. Whisky similar manufacture exported from America at the same time and re imported two Yoars before the present lot shows a loss in outage and in proof Gallons very much greater than the whisky which is at present the subject such great suspicion. It runs in proof from 99� to 101�, and averages somewhat Over thirty three proof Gallons to the barrel. At the time its exportation it was gauged and then the proof was from 98� to 100u to the barrel in most instances while the Quantity was about the same As it is now returned. Every whisky dealer knows that whisky is certain to lose a great Deal from evaporation Aud consequent shrinkage. It 1 reported and the experience in whisky exported to Bermuda gives very Good ground for the supposition that the whisky Hud lost an average some sixteen to eighteen Gallons to the barrel an that some the barrels had become absolutely empty Trot bad cooperage and the assault the Worms which bored holes into the packages.

Therefore when this whisky was interfered with and fortified in Bermuda it became subject to the duty �2 50 per gallon.

The Campbell contest in possible that governor Campbell is overworking for Bis Benefit As a candidate the opposition to Bis nomination for a second term the Cincinnati enquirer. It is our information that he won in the first counties to choose delegates by adroitly using the fact that the enquirer is against him. A new York times dispatch this morning gives the inside work Obic politics the democratic Side under the head a no More a Mclean ism wanted the faction fight among the democrats the correspondent quotes from the sunday Organ governor Campbell which he says is edited by an official the Campbell administration a makes a vicious attack John k. Mclean and the anti Campbell faction generally a pm tells the tale woe about Thurman Pendleton and general Ward and the terror fourth Ward a. We Are not sure the democracy Ohio have All the Mclean ism they want. We Are sure they have not had any More than they deserve. Perhaps the correspondent the times and the Able Headliner his communications bestow More Honor upon the proprietor the enquirer than he could claim for himself in using his name As the expression a leadership. That which interests the people at Large in this matter is the exceptional importance the Ohio Campaign this fall and the evidence that the democracy in spite All the powerful inducements to harmonize Are engaged in an implacable factional War. The Columbus dispatch we quote contains a great Deal visible truth with Only one the Side lights turned and is evidence the desperation with which Campbell is fighting for his Chance As a candidate. The very element that he now antagonizes is that which nominated him two years ago. It is the Power that put Down Thurman and Pendleton and Ward and elevated Payne and Brice and Campbell. It is not insignificant. Three times it Cut Thurman a Throat in National democratic conventions. It denied the candidacy Lor governor to general Durbin Ward though judge Thurman proposed his name. It bought wards delegates and used them against him right in Plain View the old red Bandana and All its venerable and honorable associations. Now we see Thurman is to perform for Campbell the accustomed funereal office nominating him. The Power Tbs to pushed Ward aside threw him and Pendleton also out the Way to the Senate and placed Payne there for six years and now Brice has the place As the regard Lor his gifted conduct As the manager the democratic party m the Campaign that closed in the election Harrison.
