Our flag Banished Frem llehrlnt: Scn
The situation In our Belirlng w?a M?al
fishery is net at nil calculated te make
the American eagle scream with pride.
It seems that a score of owners of HritlMi
scaling schooners calmly chartered a
small American steamship te go tip te
Slminlgaii Island, In the North raclflu,
and there receive from the llritiih bal
ers whatever seal nklns they may have
taken, The captain of this wsmiI, which
bears the npproprlate name of " The
Mischief," reports en his return te
Itrltlsh Columbia, that he took
nearly thirteen thousand Hkiim from
nineteen vessels flying the British ting,
and that he spoke live ethers, also
under the British flag, with two thous
and mere skins. Ne schooners under
our flag were seen, and this American

fear of seizure by our revenue cutters.
The British vessels when relieved of their
cargoes steamed merrily oft" agnlu to
wards Behrlng sea te resume their ex
termination of the senls in splle of the
proclamation of the president of the
United Slates. This state of things
would be ridiculous If It were net
humiliating. Our revenue vchscIh nre
practically pelicclng the sea for
the benefit of the Canadian seal
pirates, and the latter heem te
feel perfectly uafe. Can It be
that the administration has suffered lt
selftO' be brew-beaten by the presence
of British war vessels en that coast,
and has issued instructions for the len
ient treatment of ships under the Brit
ish flag while enforcing the proclama
tion against ships Hying the stars and
Btrlpes I Although nothing is said us te
the lecalily where these llftecu thousand
skins were taken, It may be admitted as
probable, that they were all secured In
the North Pucllle ocean, where our gov
ernment has never claimed the right te
protect the seals, and where the sealing
licet usually begins the work of slaugh
ter, killing about. live animals for every
hlde taken. But this part of the season
is very short, and the 1 roves of seals
must be followed North into Behrlng's
sea or the work abandoned. The cap
tain and crew of the Mischief declare
that the whole fleet were sailing for Un Un
peohibited waters when last seen, and
that Canadian seal merchants en lieard
the Mischief, told them te go ahead and
It is known that some thirty ships
- under the British flag have boldly
sailed for waters where our revenue
cutter Bush Is attppesed te be cruising
te enforce President Harrison's proclam
ation. We may seen learn Just what
instructions have been given te that
vessel. If we liave rights we should
assert and fearlessly maintain them. If
we have nene we should net harrass our
own commerce with worthless procla
mations. It high time that this wobbling ud ud
inlnlstmtlen gave some Miiall evidence
of backbone in its foreign policy. It
has patched up the Samoan (juestleu in
such clumsy, muke-sliift fashion that
late dispatches tell of disorders there and
urge the necessity of the formation of n
proper government. It lias timidly
recognized Brazil as a republic mid
joined Kuglaud In bullying peer little
Portugal. It has shouted loud and
valueless protestations of fraternity te
Bpiiiiish. America aud new mav show
fer-0-1'1 t',tr''ntien. that beasts u
S " fllonreu doctrine cannot even upheld its
own tiigntty in ttie luce of a few British
war ships. Fer the presence of a strong
British fleet is the only point of ilillViN
ence between the Behrlng's sea situa
tion new and lu 1880, when our cruisers
seized the seal pirates no matter what
flag they flew.

authorized te de, aud that It does a great
many things which Congress has no
authority whatever te de. He proves con
clusively, by an uuuuswenible historical
argument, suppeited by the autheiity of
Alexander Hamilton, that the light of
Congress te alter, amend or roeulate elec

It is unconstitutional In creating a uuuiber

laws, se that an offender could be placed
twice In Jeupaidy by two distinct govern
ments for one and the sainu act. This is
net only contrary te the express prevision
of the constitution, but te the spit it of our
criminal jurisprudence, and is, in itself, a
strong objection te the bill.
Mr. Curtis shows that the bill from be

partisan measure which could nut be un
forced If passed, and which is destined te
involve Its authors and promoters in in
evitable political ruin.

In the business portions of our city there
are a geed many horses belonging te firms
or te private Individuals which stand " en
call," as it were, oftentimes for hours, In
front of their owners' place of business.
These herses come te be well known
lu their neighborhoods, and Hcquaintance
with thorn shows In them habits and
Idiosyncrasies which are most interesting.
One of the equlncs with an Individuality
all his own is a gray herse belonging le a
firm In Wintlirep Square. He stands
In front of his owner's store ap
parently pondering upon the tins
and (Towns of life, the hat trade
and Iho weather, and occasionally
he starts off for an Independent
tour round me square, aueruiug intiuii
amusement, sometimes consternation, le
the people who are unacquainted with his
ways or doing things, sjheuld It occur te
him that lie Is thirsty or that te take a
drink would be a diversion te the monet
eny of his afternoon he walks evor te Iho
drinking fount iln In the square, politely
awaits his turn, quenches his thirst, turns
around and marches back, like lle-1'eep's
sheep, se that his owner, having left hliu
facing lu ene direction, Is qulte apt te find
him facing In anether. The old gray herse Is
au Independent character, they will tell
you lu Wlnlhrep Square.
lu the next store, still In Otis street, Is a
linn wlie.se head resides In the suburbs,
and who frequently drives back and forth
te and from his rcsldonce, lcavlughts horse
at the deer with a weiglit attached te the
stiup. The " doctor," as he Is called, fre
quently grows Impatient, casts longing
leeks around, and sometimes whinnies for
his master. 'Die otlier day, having waited
overleug, as he undoubtedly thought, doc
tor reached down, picked up the strap, and
with the weight dangling from his mouth
set oil' In u brisk and Independent fashion
for home, leaving hi muster te fellow en
feel or In horse car, as If. having waited
long enough, hew oilier people get home
was no concern of his.
Down in Congress Square there stands
an old gray tow herse of an observing
mind and engaging manners who likes te
make acquaintance with passers by. It
has been the habit of a gentleman who
comes in town o'ery morning le buy an
apple at a fruit stand and treat the old fel
low, whose somewhat luonteuous life ap
peals le him. The old tow herse has
grown te expect his apple, aud he new
watches regularly for his friend. Upen
Iho few occasions when the apple bus bceu
forgotten, or Intentionally emitted, the
herse has followed the man or has stepped
upon the sidewalk in Iren! of him and
stepped his passage, as If te say : "Yeu can
not pass until yeu've paid your tell. " One
afternoon, net long since, u man who has
a strong resoniblaure le the tow horse's
friend was passing through Congress
street, when, te his astonishment, he felt
hlinselfgrahhed by the coat sleeve. Turn
ing around his surprise was still greater
when hu found it was a herse who held
lilui prisoner. The tow boy who has
uharue of the herse came te the rescue and
cleared matters up by explaining that the
two men looked se much alike that he, as
well as the horse, was deceived. The fond
ness of horses for apples and liking for a
bit of kindly iittontlen may he further Illus
trated by the story of u herse in (St. Jehns
who would never stand still until his
owner botheughl himself te bribe the herse
te de se by occasionally giving him an
apple through his hours of we.iry waiting.
This experiment proved a coniplcte success.
The runaway was a runaway no longer.
Could he have spoken, no doubt it would
have been In the words of Solemon of old :
"Oh, comfort me with apples." At all
eventH, like a famous animal of anether
species, he "waited patiently about " till
the apples did appear.
A great many herses are fed ou the sti eels
