STARTS' WINDY EPISTLE.
A War of Words In Which Little Infor
mation Is Vouchsafed the Public at Large
The Mormon Question in the United
States Supreme CourtMiscellaneous
from the National Capital.
WASHINGTON, D. Nov. 14.The following
is Lord Salisbury'8 reply to the dispatch of
Secietaiy Evarts concerning the injuries sus
tained by American fishermen in Fortune bay,
and the attitude of the home government in
regard to colonial legislation affecting our
rights under the treaty of Washington:
FOBEION OFFICE, Nor. 7,1878.
SIBHor majesty'.* government have had
under their consideration the dispatch from Mr.
Evarts dated 28th September, and communi
cated to mc on tho 12th ultimo, respecting the
complaints made by the government of the
United States of injuries sustained by Ameri
can fishermen Fortune bay in January last.
This dispatch is in reply to my letter of the
23d of August, in which I forwarded a copy
of tho report furnished by Captain Sul
Uvan, of hor majesty's SMD Serius,
on the occurrence question. Mr. Evarts now
remarks that the United States government
have not been put in possession of the deposi
tions which foims the basis of that report, and
aio unable, therefore, to say whether upon
their considetation the view which the jjovern
aient of the United States takes, these trans
actions, upon the Bworn statement of their own
citizens, would he at all modified. Her ma
jesty's government hare not had opportunity
of considering the statements in question, but
the depositions which accompanied Capt.
Sullivan's report, and which I now havo the
honor to forward, appeared to them, in the ab
sence of other testimony, to be conclupive as
regards the facts of the case. Apart, however,
from the facts, in respect to which there ap
pears to be a matenal divergence between the
evidence collected by the United States govern
ment and that collected by colonial authorities,
Mr. Evarts takes exception to my letter of the
23d, on the ground of my statement that
United States hshermen concerned have been
guilty of breaches of law. From this he infers
an opinion on my part that it is competent for
a British authority to pass laws in supersession
of the treaty binding American iishermon
within the three mile limit. In pointing out
that American fishermen had broken tho law
within the territorial hmiU of her majesty's
dominions, I had no intentiou of inferentially
layingdown any piinciples of international law,
aud no advantage would, I think, be gained by
doing so to a greater extent than the facts in
the question absolutely require. I hardly be
lieve, however, that Mr. Evarts would, in dis
cussion, adhero to tho broad doctrine which
somo portion of his language would appear to
convey, that no British authority has any right
to pass any kind of law binding Americans
who are fishing in British waters, for if that
contention be just, the same disability applies
a fortoin to any other powerb, and waters must
be delivoi od over to anarchy. On the other
hand her majesty's government will readily ad
mit what is indeed self-evident,
that Briti&h sovereignty as regards these
matters is limited in its 6cope by engagements
of the treaty of Washington, which cannot bo
modified or affected by municipal election. I
cannot anticipate that with regard to these
puncipals any difference will be found to exist
between the views of the two ijovernmentp.
If, however, it bo admitted that Now Found
uiial legislators have the right of binding
Ameiicans who fish within their waters by any
laws, which do not contravene by existing
treaties, it must be further conceded that the
duty of determining the existence of any such
i ontravention must be undertaken by the gov
ernments and cannot be remitted to the discre
tion o each individual fisherman, for such
i discretion if exercised on one
side can hardly bo leiused on the
othei. It any Amcucan fisherman may vio
lently break a law which he believes to be con
trary to treaty, a Newfoundland fisherman may
violently maintain it if he believes it to be in
accoulance with treaty. As points in issue are
iequently subtle and require considerate legal
knowledge, nothing but confusion and disorder
could result itom such mode ot deciding the
interpretation of the treaty. Her majesty's
government prefer to view that law enacted by
the legislature of the country, whatever it may
be, ought to be obeyed by
natives and foreigners alike, who
are fojourning vnthm their territorial
limits its jurisdiction, but that it a law has
been inadvertently passed which is in any
dei ce or respect at variance with rights con
ferred on foreign power by treaty, the coirec
tion of mistake as committed is, at the earliest
period after its existence shall have been ascer
tained and recognized, a matter of internation
al obligation. It is not explicitly stated in Mr.
Evarts' dispatch that ho considers any recent
net of colonial legislation to be inconsistent
with rights acquired by the United States- un-
der the treaty of Washington, but if that is
the case her majesty's government will, in a
friendly spirit, consider any representations he
may think it light to make upon the subject.
With hope of coming to a satistactory under
standing, I have, etc. etc., SALISBURY.

1 HE JIOKMOX QUESTION
WASHINGTON, Nov. 1}.Supreme court No.
lbO assigned George Eeynoldn, plaintiff in error
against the United States in error, to the su
premo couit of the territory of Utah. This was
an indictment in the circuit court of the terri
tory of Utah, under section 5,352, revised stat
utes, for contracting a polygamous marriage,
llaviug been convicted in the third judicial dis
trict court, he appealed to the supreme court of
the terntory, and from that court, in which the
judgment below was affirmed, sued out a writ
of en or to the supreme court. Argument was
begun. The errors in the case are very
numerous, bnt only one of thorn involves a
question of general public interest, viz:
Whether the United States Congress has a con
stitutional light to prohibit polygamous mar
riages in the Territories. It was contended by
counsel for the prisoner that polygamy is en
joined as a lehgious duty and held as an article
of faith by the sect to which the latter belongs,
and that Congress is forbidden by the first
amendment to the constitution to make any
law respecting an establishment of religion, or
to piohibit the free exercise thereof.
Atty. Gen. Devens, of counsel for the United
States, urged iu reply that the interpretation
of the constitution which would restrain Con
gress from attaching a penalty to the crime of
polygamy on account of its being an aiticle of
leligious faith, would also restrain it from at
taching a penalty to any other crime which
might be sanctioned by religion. That under
this rigid interpretation of tho constitution a
hect of East Indian Thugs who should settle in
the territories might commit murder with im
punity, on the ground that it was sanctioned
and enjoined by their system of religion. He
closed with an eloquent and impressive refer
ence to the well known Mountain Meadow mas
sacre by theMorman "avenging angels" as an
illustration of the fanatical extremes to which
men, unrestrained by law, might be carried
under a mistaken conviction of religious duty.
Argument will be continued to-morrow.
Political Complication in Delaware.
WILMINGTON, NOV. 14.At the Stato election
on the 5th inst. L. E. Martin, Democratic can
didate for Congress, was elected by a majority
i about 7,000 over his only opponent, J. G.
Jackson, Greenbaoker. Since the election a
point has been raised by Martin's opponents,
that he is ineligible, having been convicted of
aiding and abetting the rebellion, and there
has been some talk of Jackson's claiming the
seat. On the other hand, it is asserted by
Martin's friends that a pardon was issued by
President Johnson in 18G6, and a letter has
been published from C. P. Johnson, then
United States marshal for Delaware, to Col.
Martin, informing him that he had received a
warrant for hia pardon. For somo reason yet
unexplained, the President's wairant cannot
b found on file.

STAGE KOBBING IN TSXAS.
The Occupation TJireatenina "o Rteotne a
Regular and Not Unprofitable Pursuit,
[Galveston (Texas) News.J
The robbing of stages and mails beyond
Fort Worth had become amusiagly monot
onous, if such a state of mind'is possible,
when a slight shock was given to the monot
ony by the recent casual shooting of one of
the highwaymen in an unofficial interference
with the regular order of amusements in
Robber's Hollow. Doubtless the man Boss
who fixed tho fatal shot will apologize to the
State and federal authorities for his violent
intrusion upon the scene, and serene
impunity for stage and mail rifling, inter
rupted without their agency or sanction, will
soon be re-established on the w,ad to Fort
Yuma. Doubtless, judgiDg from the past,
it is safe to assume that the stages and their
contents, including passengers, will continue
to be systematically robbed. Of course, on
each repetition of the performance there is a
new set of passengers, a new and deeply
interested audience, so to spe,r, but the
programme and the actors in those popular
open air theatrical entertainments appear
to undergo little or no change.1
it is early in the season yet, and possibly the
managers and the scenic artists may have
some novelty in store. Meanwhile, let us
glance at a skeleton of the performance which
has so long been on the boards, o? rather on
the wayside and the road, for a run of ap
parently unlimited duration.
At the usual hour the stage rea he Rob
+Tlve .miles n-ec* ci Fort
Worth. The two well-known villains in the
play rush from behind their favorite old
bush, down the well-beaten path, to the spot
where the robbery is to take place. They do
not need to shake their pistols sternly at the
stage-drvier to secure his attention, for the
horses, intelligent brutes, stop of their own
accord, as does the propelling power at
tached to a milk-wagon in front of a house
of a regular customer. The driver seems to
regard the subsequent proceedings in the
light of a business transaction between
the robbers and the excursionists in the
stage, in which it would be indelicate
for him to intrude without a special invita
tion. As soon as they can do go with safety,
the passengers file out of the vehicle, fall
into line, and hold up their hands. It is only
a wonder that there is no photographer
present to take a picture of tho group for
publication in some Northern illustrated
journal, as an inducement to stay away from
The passengers contribute watches, jew
elry, pistols, and even money, to the general
fund, with a premptness which suggests that
they had been drilled for the occasion, or
felt that they were likely to be drilled in
case they were slow in their movements. Ow
ing to the failure of the post office de
partment to furnish the driver with a dupli
cate key to the mail bags, the robbers are
obliged to cut them open and relieve the de
partment of the responsibility of delivering
to their proper address the registered pack
ages. Everything goes on as regularly as
clock-work. Occasionally the driver may
urge haste, as he may be behind time but
usually before the horses are fairly rested,
the heavily-laden robbers retrace their steps
to their ancsstral castle on the
brow of the distant hill, just as wo see them
do in the theaters. Doubtless, some persons
will object that tho foregoing is exaggerated
and overdrawn. Be this as it may, unless
more in done in the future than has been
done in tho past month, during which the
stage has been robbed three times, it will
not be long before stage robbing will be one
of the recognized industries of the country,
and the favorite school for the graduation of
the heavy villains in the criminal drama.
Crookedness of a Boozing: Bi Brother
Theft of a Watch and Chain.
Yesterday a young man by the name of
Sayers, a harness maker residing on Cedar
street, made complaint of his brother. The
older Sayers, a blacksmith, had been on a
hurrah for several days. This was aggra
vating enough, but the big brother increased
the burden the younger one bore by stealing
his watch .and chain. This property
he (the big brother) had put
in soak to supply himself with money
to keep himself soaked. Capt. Clark sent
out for the boozing brother, and he was
brought into the station, full up. When
taxed with the theft of his brother's jewelry,
he denied it. He was subjected to a per
suasive interview by Capt. Clark, and finally
acknowladged he bad pawned the $15
worth of property for $2. He told
where, and the property was recovered and
restored to the younger Sayers. The boozy
brother was put away to sleep off his potion.
This morning, doubtless, the younger broth
er will estend one of the seventy and nine
times, he ia enjoined to forgive his brother
if he offend. Consequenceno prosecution

LOST OK TH E LAKE.
A Bailor's Terrible XeathJriJUno Out of
Sight in an Open BoatCast Up on the
[Oswego (N. Y.) Palladium.]
Capt John Walters, of the schooner Sea
bird, arrived here Sunday last from Trenton
with lumber for J. K. Post & Co. The Sea
bird, with twenty-two other vessels, had been
lving in McDonald's cove, riding out the
ctorm. Upon reaching this port Capt. Wal
ters learned of the finding of the yawl of the
schooner Julia containing the body of Moses
Dulmage, sailor, on the beach at Stony
Point, Sunday morning. From the master
of the schooner Olivia he learned that Dul
mage was driven out of South Bay, Ont., be
fore a heavy gale the previous Thursday
night, and being acquainted with Dulmage's
father, he telegraphed the facts to him and
got an answer requesting him to get the body
and bring it home.
Monday afternoon Capt. Walters took a
team and drove to Stony Point, where he
found that the body had been removed to
Henderson harbor and buried. He pushed
on and reached Henderson at noon Tuesday,
took the body up and brought it here, arriv
ing Wednesday noon. The corpse now lies
aboard of his vessel, which is awiting a fair
wind to sail for South Bay.
A THBTLLINO STOBT.
The statement of this cruel fatality as
gathered by Capt Walters is as follows.
Tuesday night, Oct. 31, ten vessels, among
which were the Julia, Olivia and Ariadne,
lay at South Bay point, the Julia and Olivia
lying near to each other. About 7 p. M.
Dulmage asked permission of the captain of
the Julia to take the yawl and go over to the
Olivia to visit some friends. The captain
gave his consent and Dulmage went. He
staid on the Oliva till between 10 and 11 p.
v., when he proposed to go back. The wind,
which was out of the northwest, had stiff
ened, and was blowing a gale with a big sea
running. The captain of the Olivia says he
told Dulmage he had better stay all night,
bnt the latter said he was afraid the captain
might want to go out before morning, or
would want the yawl for something, and he
started back. The crew of the Olivia
watchf him, and seeing that he was going
to leeward, snouted to him to head her up to
windward. They heard Dulmage call to the
Julia to throw him a line, which was done,
but he failed to get it, and drifted past the
Julia and came alongside and pretty close to
the Ariadne, which lay astern of the other
two. As he came alongside he called to tho
Ariadne's crew to lower the boat and come
after him, for he was going out into the lake.
The captain of the Ariadne heard him, and
thought somebody was shouting about his
vessel and that she might be dragging her
anchors. He ran forward, saw the boat with
a man in it and called up his crew. They
lowered their yawl at once the sea partly
filled her and the captain told them it was no
use, they would all be lost, and the attempt
was abandoned. Dulmage was rapidly driven
on before the maddened and hungry sea, and
cried out to another vessel which he passed
to save him, but no further effort was made,
and he drifted out of sight crying for help.
Long after he was lost to view in the dark
ness his distressing ories pierced the gale
with piteous appeals for help. Sunday morn
ing Mr. Smith, lightkeeper at Stony point,
found the boat ashore just south of the
lighthouse, with a dead and bruised body
in it. Of the awful circumstances un
der whioh the poor fellow died, who he
was, or how lost, he had no knowledge.
The body lay on its face, with the head
toward the bow. The legs were lashed to
the seat and thwarts with the painter. The
oar was found on the beach about rive rods
farther south, from all of which Mr. Smith
concluded that the man must have been
alive and was steering the yawl when he
went ashore, and that he died almost im
mediately from exhaustion and reaction.
He also thinks that he came ashore Friday
morning, judging from the appearance of
tho floodwood and debris along the shore at
that place. The storm did not abate until
Sunday, and it is not strange that the boat
and its awful freight should
not l"ve been discovered sooner.
From I- ath Bay point to Stony
point in Wty miles, and this terrible voyage
young Dulmaga made in that tempestuous
night in the face of almost certain death.
The horrors of that night cannot be painted.
The annals of lake navigation show nothing
more thrilling or pathetic.
It seems strange that, even on such a
night, a man should be allowed to drift away
from a fleet of ten vessels without further
was no intentional inhumanity, but that each
waited for the other to do something, till the
opportunity to act had passed and tho poor
fellow was beyond successful pursuit.

The Annual Report of the Bureatt^-What it
Costs the Government.
The annual report of the bureau of en
graving and printing shows that the aggre
gate expense of operating the bureau during
the year was $588,8*1.33. In the labor and
expense account less than one-fifth of the
amount appropriated was expended, leaving
$65f,836.17 in the treasury unexpended at
the olose of the last fiscal year. Daring the
present fiscal year the expenses in July were
$7,145.45 in August, $11,952.25,
and in September, $14,082.66.
Since the 1st of October, 1877,
the bureau has executed all the work upon
United StateB notes and nationel bank cur
rency, the only amount paid to private com
panies during the year being about $13,000
to the Columbian bank note company for
work done prior to October, 1877. The
number of impressions by plate printing was
20,244,490, against 18,989,427 during the
preceding year. The number of sheets for
customs and internal revenue stamps and of
United States securities delivered in the fis
cal year ended June 30,1877, was 9,820,059.
The number of sheets of the same class of
work during the fiscal year 1878 was 12,518,-

A. MURDEROUS DEN.
A Model Lodging House in St. Louts.
[St. Louis Special (Ndv7 15) to Chicago Tn
The coroner held a preliminary inquest
to-day on the body of a man named F. HiU
derbrandt, who died at the hospital several
days ago of injuries received from an un
known man on the evening of the 8d of No
vember. Hilderbrandt was found by a po
lice officer lying upon the pavement near the
saloon and boarding house of a man named
Edward Moritz, at the comer of Main and
Cedar streets, where the most notorious
characters Bometimes stop. The man had a
ghastly wound in the top of the head, which
he had received from a blunt itstrument,
such as a beer-mallet or a hammer. The
skull was broken and blood flowed
freely from the wound. The patient
was removed to the hospital, where he re
ceived the best of treatment, but he died
on the 6th, at 2:30 in the morning, having
been speechless np to the time of death.
The body was then taken to the morgue,
placed on ice, and kept until to-day in the
hope that the police would in the meantime
make some discoveries and succeed in cap
turing the guilty party. One or two arrests
have been made, but the coroner is satisfied
that the police hit upon the wrong persons.
The theory is that the man was wounded in
the house and taken out and left on the
street to die. The proprietor of the house
states that, at 12 o'clock on the night of the
murder, he was called by a boarder named
Jack Gross, who asked him to come to his
room and see what was the matter, as water
was trickling from the ceiling. Moritz com
plied, and what Fross supposed to be water
he was surprised to find was blood. It had
been falling on the dark counterpane of the
bed, and for this reason could not be de
tected without the closest scrutiny. The
blood came from John Mueller's room,
which was directly over Gross'. Moritz
then went np to Mueller's room, where he
found John Mueller and a young man whom
he did not know in bed together. Kate
Mueller was lying under the bed. Moritz
thought all three pretended to be asleep, as
he attempted to wake them but could not
get a response. Ho then went down stairs
and remained in his own apartments until
morning. Soon after the saloon keeper had
risen, the young man whom he had seen in
bed with Mueller came down and asked
whether any one had called for him. Moritz
afterwards looked for him, but could not
find him. The young man had paid for two
nights' lodgings, but staid only one. As the
man killed was a poor laborer, there must
have been some secret reason for his mur
Gen. Miles Vindicated.
The story of excessive oruelty oharged
upon Gen. Miles in his attack upon the Ban
nock Indians is fully answered in the follow
ing private letter:
STUDIO BDILDINO, BOSTON, NOV. 5,1878.
I send to you a cutting from one of the
morning papers which does great injustice to
one of the most gallant officers of our army,
and, if not contradicted, might do him a
serious injury in the minds of his oountry
men. Having accompanied a body of cav
alry which joined Gen. Miles the morning
after his fight, ahd knowing the
preceding movements of the troops
toward the body of Bannocks,
who were marking their path toward
the British possessions by burned ranches
and murdered families, I feel it my duty to
say that the Bannocks accompanied by
scouts came to Gen. Miles with propositions
to surrender. The information of their
presence came from Capt. Egan, Second
cavalry, who was following them in an east
erly direction. After an arduous march,
with one officer and twenty-seven enlisted
men, Gen. Miles discovered the Bannocks'
camp in the afternoon, without being per
ceived by them, and keeping bid all night,
attacked them the next day at daybreak, on
a foggy morning. Ho knewthe column which
joined him afterward was within some sixteen
miles, but delayed by the rising of the
rivers, which made the fords impassable.
Fearing that they would perceive the pres
ence of the troops and scatter over the newly
settled valley of the Yellowstone, he attacked
them with his little body of men without
waiting for the otherswho were marching
westerly from Fort Custerto come up. He
took all their horses, thus depriving them of
the means of further mischief, and captured
some thirty-six prisoners the others scatter
ed through the sage brash, which was very
tall on the battle field. Gen. Miles showed
every kindness to the wounded and captured.
He has in all cases been both just
and firm in his treatment of In
dians. Last year, after the cap
ture of Chief Joseph, with his band
of Nez Perces, he deprived his own troops of
much of their necessary transportation to
make the captured Indians more comfort
able. If you will give publicity to the de
nial of the charges against Gen. Miles I
shall esteem it a great favor, and an act of
justice to an officer whose career is laborious
and troubled enough, without having his
successes counted as crimes. Gen. Miles
lost in this fight one officer, Capt. Bennett,
Fifth infantry, and two scouts killed, and
one private wounded. Yours, very truly,
Cur Complicated Commissioner.
It is very home like to read that Mrs.
Hayes has had tho white house cellar fitted
up with potato bins, shelves for pumpkins
and squashes, and other products of the farm
likely to be needed to refresh the adminis
tration during the winter. It is a little re
markable, however, after a year or more of
Commissioner Le Due in the agricultural bu
reau, that squashes, and pumpkins, and po
tatoes are the only things that the excellent
mistress of the white house has to put away
in the cellar. An expectant might reason
ably want to know what has become of all
the bamboo and bon bons and other things
which Le Duo 'nas been raising right along
and which no good housekeeper would fail
to hav in the cellar when winter sets in. If
pumpkins and potatoes are all the white
house needs, it seems as though we could get

Two magnificent globes, terrestrial and

Senor Costa, an artillery officer, may be said
to have discovered the value of the globes
and has communicated to the Geographical
society of Lisbon in regard to them. These
spheres were made in 1690, in Venice, and
were presented to Don John V. by the pope.
The terrestrial globe throws light upon the
question of Portuguese discoveries, which
have been so much discussed of late, and
