Complete Outline of the Controversy
Out the Vexed Question Hi-
tneen Oreat Itrltnln and the
Vmisotos, July 23. The President
111 answer to its resolution, today sent
the House of Representatives the olli
rial correspondence between the Govern
nieiit and (.5 rent Britain touching tho
seal fisheries of Hehring Sea.
In his accompanying letter to the
President, Secretary Maine, under date
d( July 19, says the correspondence ia
still in progress. It includes thirty sep
arate papers, beginning August 24, lttoli,
and closing with a letter from Secretary
Illume to Sir Julian l'auncefort, Ilritish
Minister, tinted July 10, 1890.
The correspondence between Secretary
Blaine and the new Ilritish Minister
U-gan on January 22, this year. Tho
Secretary ojeued with the acknowledge
ment of "the receipt of papers bearing
tui the seizures niadu by the Hush. He
m.ws "In the opinion of the President
the Canadian vessels arrested and de
tained in llchring Sen were engaged in
the pursuit contra bonus mores, a pur
suit which of necessity involves serious
and permanent injury to the rights
uf the Government and the people
uf the Tinted States. To establish
this ground it is not necessary to
argue the question of tho extent
and nature of tho sovereignty of this
iiovernment over tho waters of Hehring
ea. Weighty considerations growing
out of the acquisition of that territory,
with all the rights on land and sea
inseparably connected therewith, may
be safelv left out of view, whilo
the grounds aro set fortli upon
which this Iiovernment rests its
justification for tho action complained
uf bv Her Majesty's Government.
The Secretary 'then speaks of the
value of the seal fisheries, which were
controlled bv Russia without interfer
ence or question until tho cession of
Uaska to tho United States in 1807 1 and
saws the precedent, customs and rights
lia'vo been established and enjoyed
either bv Russia or tho United States
for nearlv a century. The two nations
weio the'only jwwers that owned a foot
of land on the continents that
Wdered on tho islands included
within the Hehring waters where tho
srals resort to breed. However, certain
Canadian vessels, in 18SG, usserted their
right to enter and by a ruthless course
destroy tho fisheries and with them tho
resulting industries, valuable to this
secretary Maine goes on to say:
'The forcible resistance to which this
government is constrained in Hehring
ea i9 in tho President's judgment
demanded, not only by necessity
of defending the traditional and long
catabhshetl rights of tho United States,
but also the rights of good government
and good morals the world over. In this
contention, the government of the
United States had no occasion and no
desire to withdraw or modify any jwsi
tious which it has at any time main
tained against tho claims of the imperial
government of Russia. Tho United
states will not withhold from any
nation the privileges which it
demanded for itself when Alaska was a
jmrt of tho Russian empire, nor ia the
Government of the United States dis
jsed to exercise in those possessions
anv less jower or authority than it was
willing to concede to the, imperial gov
ernment of Russia when its sovereignty
extended over them.
On August 30, Sir l'auncefort wrote to
secretary Maine in answer to his
invitation for a counter projwsal
for settlement, saying that tho solo
object of the negotiations was the pres
cription of the fur seal. Her Majesty's
Government must question whether this
pursuit can itself bo regarded as contra
loiio worts unless and until, for special
reasons, it has been agreed by inter
national arrangement to forbid it. Seals
are indisputably animal ferae natural.
MarquiH Salisbury under date of May
22. in a letter to the Ilritish Minister,
after saying that negotiations between
secretary Maine and tho minister af
fords strong reason for hopo that the
question is in a fair way toward satis
factory adjustment, undertakes a reply
to Secretary Mnine'H arguments rela
tive to the statement that tho seizures
were justified by tho fact that they
engaged in the pursuits contra
Iwnoi mores. Tho Martinis cays:
'it is obvious that two questions aro
involved, first, whether tho pursuit and
and killing of fur seals in certain parts
of the ojien sea is from a jwint of view
of international morality, an offense
cuntra bonus Mores; secondly, whether
if such be the ense, this fact justifies
seizure on high seas and subsequent
confiscation in time of pence of the pri
vate vessels of a friendly nation."
He says further: "It is an axiom of
international maritime law that such
action is only admissablo in case of
piracy or in pursuance of special inter
national agreement. Now the pursuit of
seals in an ojkjii sea, under whntovor
circumstances, Jms never been consid
ered piracy by a civilized State, nor oven
if the United States had gone so far as
to make tho killing of fur seals piracy
by their municipal law, would
this have justified in punishing
oireuces against such law committed by
any jiersons other thnn their own citi
zens. Her Majesty's Government would,
if a case be proved, bo ready to consider
what measures can be properly taken
for the remedy of such an injury, but
they would be unable on thnt ground to
depart from1 a principle on which frco
commerce on the high seas depends.
Tho President, ho says, is surprised
that such a protest should bo authorized
by 1ml Salisbury, csjecinlly becnuso
he views that the declaration of his
lortlshi) would seem to render
it iuiMiHiblc. The Sccetnry then
rajiidly sketches the history of tho
negotiations under tho previous ad
ministration and says: "You will
observe thnt from " November 11,
1887, to April 13, 1888, Lord Salisbury
in every form of speech, assented to the
necessity of a close season for the pro
tection of tho seals. These assurances
cre given to tho American Minister in
charge, and tho Russian Ambassador
on inoro than ono occasion, and to tho
two of them together. Tho United Stntes
had no reason, therefore, to doubt that
tho whole dispute touching tho seal
fisheries was practically settled.
Continuing, Secretary Maine states
that five days after that assurance lxml
Salisbury said that neither nn act of
paritnmnnt nor nn order oi council
could bo affected until Canada is heard
Mr. Phelps, in his dispatch of Sept.
12, reported: "His lordship stated
that tho Canadian government objected
to any such restrictions and
until its consent could bo obtniued her
majesty's government was not willing to
enter into a convention.
Says the Secretary: "This govern
ment cannot but feel that Lord Salis
bury should have dealt more frankly
in the leginning and had so informed
Minister Phelps. Tho Ilritish govern
ment would assuredly and rightfully
complain if an agreement between
her and a representative of the
United States Bhould without notice bo
broken off by the United States on tho
ground that tho State of California was
not willimr it should be completed."
In conclusion ho projHJses, in behalf
ot tne lTcsuient, tnnt ner majesty's
government agree not to permit vessels
to enter Hehring sea this sea
son, in order thnt time may
bo secured for negotiations that
shall not be disturbed by any untoward
events or influenced by popular agita
tion. On Juno 2 tho Secretary writes Sir
Julian thnt the President b'elievcs thnt
arbitration cannot bo concluded in time
for this season and suggests thnt Lord
Salisbury make for a simile season the
regulation which in 18S8 ho offered to
make permanent, as a step which will
certainly lead to n friendly agreement.
To this the minister replies on June
3 that the further examination of the
question has satisfied his Lordship that
such an extreme measure as that pro
jKsed in 1888 goes far lievond the re
quirements of the case. There would
bo no legal jower to enforce tho observ
ance of such nn agreement on Ilritish
Secretary Maine, replying on Juno 4,
says "The extreme "measure" camo
from 1ord Salisbury himself, and con
cludes: "The President does not hide
his disajqxjiutment that even for tho
sake of securing impartial arbitrati n
iler Majesty's Government is not will
ing to suspend for a single season
a practice which Ix)rd Salisbury
described in 1888 as the wanton
destruction of a valuable industry, and
which this government hns uniformly
regarded as an unprovoked invasion of
its established rights."
On June 9, Sir Julian Pnunccfort
presents a copy of a telegram from
Salisbury in which he regrets that tho
President should think linn wanting in
conciliation, but that it is beyond the
power of his government to ex
clude Ilritish or Canadian ships
from any portion of the high
seas, even for an hour, without legisla
In reply, on tho eleventh, Secretary
Maine says this government would be
satisfied if Lord Salisbury would by
proclamation simply request the Brit
ish vessels to abstain from entering
Hehring Sea for the present season in
order to give full time for impartial ne
gotiation. Sir Julian, on Juno 11,
writes Secretary Maine that he
has so informed Lord Salisbury.
Secretary Maine could not give assur
ances that tho Ilritish sealing vessels
would not bo interfered with during the
negotiations and expresses the hope that
the decision is not final and that while
there is yet time the commanders of
United States revenue cruisers will be
instructed to abstain from interfering
On June 14; however, tho Minister
with regret, failing to secure a favorable
reply, presents a formal protest of the
In the protest he says in jart. "Tho
Ilritish government "cannot admit the
right of the United States, of their own
solo motion to restrict tlie freedom of
navigation in Hehring Sea, nor to enforce
municipal legislation against Ilritish
vessels on the high seas. Her Hritannie
Majesty's Government ia therefore un
able to paea over without notico tho
public announcement of tho intention
on tho part of ttie United States
to renew the acts of interference
with Ilritish vessels' navigation out
side tho territorial waters of tho
United States, of which they had
previously to comilain. The Mirdster
is in consequence instructed to formally
jirotest against such interference and to
deelaro that her Heritannic majesty's
government must hold tho government
of tho United States responsible for the
consequences that may ensue from acts
which are contrary to the established
principles of international law.
Tho minister next, on Juno 27, replies
to Secretary Maine's proia&hion look
ing to a proclamation by her Majesty's
government that Ilritish vessels shall
not enter Hehring sea during the coin
ing season. Tho minister writes that
Lord Salisbury says tho lequest presents
constitutional difficulties which would
preclude her majesty's government from
acceding to it, except ns a jmrt of
a general scheme for the settle
ment of tho controversy and certain
conditions, which are, that tho govern
ments agree forthwith to refer to
arbitration tho question of the
legality of the action of tho United
States in seizing or otherwise interfering
with Jtritish vessels engaged in Hehring
Sea outside tho territorial waters during
1887, 1888 and 1889, nnd that ponding
the award all interference with Ilritish
sealing vessels shall absolutely cease,
and that tho United States, if the award
should be ad verso to them, will com
pensate Ilritish subjects for losses which
they may sustain by reason of their
compliance with the Ilritish jiroclatna
tion. In the next communication,
of date tho present mouth, Lord
Salisbury, referring to Secretary
Maine's criticism" upon tho abrupt
close of tho Ixmdon negotiations,
quotes from a statement made to him
by United States Minister Phelps ns
follows: "Under the peculiar political
circumstances of America at this mo
ment," said Mr. Phelps, "With a gen
eral election iending, it would be of
little uso and indeed hardly practicable
to conduct nny negotiations to its issue
before tho election had taken place."
On tho last of Juno Secretary Maine
addresses to the British minister
a very long letter in answer to Lord
Salisbury's communication, in which
tho latter stated that Secrotary John
Quincy Adams protested against Rus
sia's claim to exclusivo jurisdiction of
Hehring 'Sea. Secretary Blaine says:
"Tho question which Lord Salisbury
makes is unfortunately a most de
fective, erroneous and misleading
one. Tho conclusion is separated
from the premises, a comma
is turned into n period and an important
qualification as to the timo is entirely
erases, without even a suggestion that
it had over formed a jmrt of the text and
out of eighty-four words logically and
inseparably connected thirty-five are
dropped from Mr. Adam's pnragnih in
Lord Salisbury's quotation.
Tho Secretary said further: "Neither
by treaty with Russia, in 1825, nor by
ite renewal in 1843, nor by its second
renewal in 1859, did Great" Uritain gain
any rights to take seals in Bohr
iiiK sea. In fact those treaties
wero a. prohibition ujwn her which she
steadily respected ns long as Alaska was
a Russian province. It is for Great
Britain now to show by what laws sho
Rained rights in thnt sea after tho trans
fer of its sovereignty to tho United
Stntes. During nil tho time, between
tho treaty of 1825 nnd the cession of
Alaska to the United States in 1807,
Great Britain never affirmed the rights
of her subjects to capture fur seals
in Hehring sen, and ns a matter of
fact her subjects did not during that
period 'attempt to catch seals in Hehring
Sea. I am justified, therefore, repeat
ing the questions which I addressed to
Her Majesty's Government on January
22, and which still remain unanswered,
viz: Whence did the ships of Canada
derive the right to tlo in 1880 that which
they had refrained from doing for nearly
ninety years? Ujwn what grounds
did Iler Majesty's government defend in
the year 1880 a course of conduct in
Hehring Sen which had' been carefully
avoided over since tne discovery ot Hint
sea? By what reasoning did Her Maj
esty's government conclude that an act
may bo committed with impunity
against the rights of the United
Stntes which had never been at
tempted against the same rights
when held by the Russian einjiire.
The thirtieth and last letter of the
correspondence, which would, if printed
entire, fill over twenty newsjajer col
umns, was addressed by Mr. Blaine to
Sir Julian Pnunceforte, from Bar Har
bor, lust Saturday.
In it the Secretary says: "I am
instructed by the President to say that
the United States is willing to consider
nil the jiroceedings of April 10, 1883, as
canceled so far as American rights may
bo concerned. This Government will ask
Great Britain to adhere to tho agreement
made between Ixml Salisbury and Mr.
Phelps, on February 25, 1888. That was
an agreement made directly between the
two Governments, nnd did not include
tho right of Russia, asking Lord Salis
bury to adhere to the agreement of Feb
ruary 25. We leave tho agreement of
April 10, to be maintained, if main
tained at all, by Russia, for whose cause
and for whose ndvnntage it was particu
Blaine also refers to IOrd Salisbury's
statement that the olitical event in the
United Stntes has caused tho interrup
tion of negotiations and not a Canadian
objection, nnd closes the voluminous
correspondence as follows: "I nm jus
tified m assuming that 1jrd Salisbury
cannot recur to the remark of
Mr. Phelps ns ono of tho reasons
for breaking off the negotiations,
localise negotiation was in nctunl prog
ress for more thnn four months nfter tho
remark was made nnd Mr. Phelps him
self took n large part in it. Ujon this
recital of facts, I am unable to recall or
in any way to qualify the statement
.which I made in my note of June 4 to
tho effect that Lortl Salisbury abruptly
closed the negotiations because the
Canadian Government objected nnd that
he assigned no other reason whatever.
Ixird Salisbury expresses tho belief that
even if the view 1 have taken of these
transactions are accurate, they -would
not bear out tho argument which 1
found ujon them. Tho argument to
which Iord Salisbury refers is, I jire
Hume, tho remonstrance which I
made by direction of the President
against n change of jxilicy by Her
Majesty's government, without notico
and against tho wish of the United
States. The interposition of tho wishes
of the British province against the con
clusion of tho convention between the
two nations which, according to Mr.
Phelps, had been virtually agreed upon
except as to details, was in tho Presi
dent's belief a grave injustice to the
government of the United States."

Spokane Falls, July 23. This city
had another quarter of a million dollar

The burnt district on the north side
ot the river and the great chasm' left by
the burning of the bndce presented a
desolate appearance today. Neither of

A great many rumors have been
afloat all day about the work
of firebugs, hut they fail to
develop. Julia Glenn, keejer of the
lodging house in which the Second
street fire started, is under arrest, sus
pected of arson, but she denies tho
charge and there seems to be little to
substantiate it. When the two fires
were at their height the whole city and
surrounding country were illuminated.
Everybody was nervous and this almost
develojied into a panic when a
water main burst and the firemen had
no water to fight the flames. The Mon
roe street bridge burned inch by inch,
while the firemen and thousands of
spectators stood by powerless. Many
buildings were saved bv the use of gar
den hose and wet blankets. Many jeo
ple remained away all night, fearing
the starting of new fires. The air was
still, and sparks and fire brands floated
to distant parts of the city.

he said he would not accept the Director-
Generalship of the Columbian Plxjwsi

exhibition will be mainly agricultural,
and foreign representation will not bo
extensive. This is my opinion, based on
the l'aris exposition, and tne lact mat
foreign nations must incur great oxpense
to come to Chicago. I think the Chi
