Washington, May 16.?"Foreign Relations for
- 18n?t." which is now out In hook form, contain? ; ? v
?rnl exceedingly Interesting notes exchanged by
Secretnry Ohiey and Sir .'.ullan Panncefot? on the |
Behring See Question. In ?Svecal of the notes both
Mr. Oinrv and tlie Hriti??h Ambassador employ
rather firm lengasgo In one. Sir Julian, nfter
making three distinct complal'its. Intim?t?:?, In
1 diplomatic language, of courra*, that British sub?
jects engaged in fur Sealing have l?een treated by
the naval representative? of the United States as
if they wer.- continually trying to erado and break
the law. Sir Julian says the English sealers have
been subjected to unnecessary loss nn.l trouble,
Then he d?clar?e that the right of scan-hint, Brit?
ish vesrcls wr*s conferred on the t'nite.l States
officers on the soeumptlea that they would exer?
cise th.-lr peen r? with the same consideration as
would. In like circumstances, be shown to such ves?
t-Is by Engttsh naval officers. He concludes with
the suchest i on that this Government should nt
once Issue orders to put an end to the Interference
with Hrltlsh VOSOS s on the high sens, which has
given rlOO to many complaints, and which la not
warranted by the provisions of British law.
The particular complaints of the British Ambas
t?r*.or In this toOtO are. first, that ?he seizures of
vessels for alleged offences were marie by Vr.lted
Btatco officers, en evidence obviously Insuflldent;
second, that the rifflvt of search was exercised
where there war. no just ground to Fuspert an
offence had been commute?!, an?l, third, that the
Interference of revenue cutters of this country In
the operations of Br.tlsh scaling schooners is vexa?
tious and Inquisitorial.
Omitting the Introductory remarks of Secretary
Olney, the following is his reply to Sir Julian: "As |
to the first ground Of COtnpUlnt, that British seai
ing schooners were seized for alleged offences on
evidence obviously insufficient, it appear? that
three British moling vessels w? re prized by Amer?
ican cruisers during the last s? aso?-..-namely, th?
Shelby. In the North Pacific Ocean, May It and the
Beatrice and the K. B. Marvin on AugUOt 20 and
Bept.-mber 2 reopeetlvety, in Behring Sea. of thes?.
sese?lo the Bhelby was condenned by British
courts, the l?. B. Marvin was a< quitted, but with?
out cost?, the Court deciding that there was rea?
sonable cauF" to believe that she bad violated the
Jaw, and that the seizure, therefore, was Justifiable,
und the Beatri'-e was scaultted on the ground that
the failure of the mnst?r to make the log ontrleo
required by the Paris BWSrd WSO not a violation of
the Behring Boa Award act for -,1-ich the vesoel
could be forfeited. These facts, it is believed, will
f-atisfactoriiy indicatr? the discretion nr.d goo?! Ju?lg
mnil r-hown by our rrvrnue-cuttrr offl.'crs in mak?
ing these leisures, and will demonstrate that the
evidence of pullt we? not 'obvlou-ly insufficient.'
"As to the second ground of complaint, that the
right of s?arch vas psorted to wh? n no just suspi?
cion existed that an offence had been commilte?!, i*
appears that information was recei\ed by the Treas?
ury Department tl)at during the ?SSSOB of 18M the
law was vlr.laud systtinai.cally by pelagic ?ealeri
by having ?botguna concealed on boar?i of tiie ves?
sels and \isin?r th?-m in killing seals in Behring S?m;
also, that the lot? entries showins: the sex of the

s': h rircnms'.iiiic'f, cammanaling officers of reve?
nue vessels ?oull ?satisfy their suspicions only by
talking a thorough oesrch of the OOSlIng vessels
me', with during the patrol. It would plainly be
almost bnposelblc to detect a vessel sctuslly In the
act rf riolstlng tho law by killing oeala in th?
ciose.l se.ison or by firearms in Behring Sea, It
therefore become Deoesasry to board the Vessel, to
Break out til?- cargo, and to Inipecl the skins there
ITiorouglily, to ascertain whether they appeared to
J?_-v<? been shot, if In Behring Ben, or whether they
^?pp-ared to have been freshly killed, if in the
"Jn view of the dissatisfaction expressed in the
communication of Your Excellency, this Govern*
ment cas only repeat the expression heretofore
made of its deep regret that the regulations for the
feasoi??**?if lv.?4, agreed upon by Great Britain and
the United States, as to .-cai.iii* up arms and equip
ments. could not have be? n continu? 1 dnrin-r. the
?tosen of UK. Tbooo regulation? provided on assy
and s.mple mode of satisfying the searching officer
that no breach of law liad been or could bsv? bees
committed. By sealing up the aims- and equip?
ments much annoyance, which otherwise would be
inevitable, ora? avoided by both the maoter of th?
schooner and by the searching ..nicer. Inasmuch,
h never, oa Her Majeoty'a Qoverwnent refuted to
agree for th? ?eaaon ot 1*96 upon a continuance o?
the regulations permitting this sealing up of ortni
and equipments, or, in fact, upon any regulation?.
the only recours?- left t,i the Treasury Department
was to orJcr Its officers In all i'asrs to nwk? ?are
ful and thorough search as t" infractions of the law,
hether by the use of contraband weapons or in
"In this C DM 'tlon It may be proper to state that
during the last season the mas'ers of twenty-eight
British vessels at TJnslsakS applied to the officers
of the Treasury Department to heve their flreernu
sealed up. and expreoe? '. great dissatisfaction at
the refusal of the officer? to ?ccedo to their request?.
"As to the third ground of complslnt, thai the
officers of the patrol Seel had been guilty of vexa?
tious and Inquisitorial Ini ?rference, it oeema necee?
sary only to renew the ?i ?uranes that there war no
lnt??rfere-nce except o careful investigation of the
veeoel and cargo i?> ??certain whether the (?kins were
phofjor freshly k..l? ?1. In violation of the award and
the_Brl:i'-h set of Parliament aad oiders in coun I
It Ifreapectfully ?ubmitted that the right to ?else
nd detain veeoel?, given to officer? of the united
gate? bv th?- Behring 8 a Aword act end the 0rde;s
in council, c nfers by neeeeeary Implication t?i?' right
to ?earch, and It la further ?ubmitted that the right
oi ooarch th i? Implied la oa complete sa in the
i- tnewhai snalogoua case of searching neutral vee?
oel? for contraband of war. Until the vessel is vis?
ited and searched it cannot appear whether its pur?
pose Is legal or Illegal, whether if I? llcenaed or un?
licensed, whether, in short, it has violated the law
or obeyed it.
? I: !? further claimed in the communication of
Tour ??Excellency that selsures under the act of Par?
lement can only h.? made in ??ase? where th? British
8'?t has beer violated; that under th? British set
and order.? In council there la no powei leisure

it's: oppsrotua and Implemento. Nothing is con?
tained in the Instruction? to the revenue cutter offi?
