THE SEALING DISPUTE.
Ihe Correspondence Between Uncle
Sam and John Bull.
Lord Salisbury's Vajne Note Meets With a
a Vigorous Response No More Delays
American liferents Will He Pro
tected Salisbury Rejoins.
Washington. March 20. In a letter
to the state department the British
minister communicates the information
that Lord Salisbury declines to renew
the modus vivendi and claiming the
right of protection from loss incurred
by free sealin? in the Bt'hrinir sea. and
objecting to a suspension of scaling
pending arbitration. In reply to the
note Acting eeretary of State Wharton
Already forty-seven Canailian vessels have
cleared for tb sealing grounds as asalost
thirty one at tU" Mine date last ye.ir and are
cn:a?ed in following up and destroying' the seal
herds. These vessels will, If not stopped and
turned back at the passes, po into the Uehr.n?
sea and pursue to the very shores of our islands
the Slaughter of the no!hr trala civ-tir- th
rookeries to be delivered of their young. This
ii crime apuas nature.
That in view of this serious contention of this
government his lordshin should assume tint
anotner years suspension of such sealin? Is
not necfssarv to prevent an undue diminution of
the seal herds and should insist that pending
an arbitration it shall go on precisely as if no
arbitration had been agreed un. Is ns snr.
prising as tt is disappointing. If her majesty's
goiernmi-m so little respects the claims and
contentions of this government as to be un
willing to forbear for a sinjrle season to disre
gard thun. the president cannot
understand whv Lord Salishurv
should have proposed and agreed to five to
those claims the diiraitv and standing -a.irh
reference to a high court of arbitration implies
from the moment an arbitration was rvreeil
upon neither party was at liberty to disre; ird
the contentions of the other. It must be as
sumed that the sincere purpose of the two gov
ernments was to promote peace and pood will
but if pendin? the arbitration either deals with
the subject of It solely on the basis of its own
contention and in utter disregard of the claims
of the other, this friendly end is not
onvl not attained but a new sense of Ir.iurv :i-i
injustice is added, even if it should be found
lAjssiuie io proceed with an arbitration under
such conditions. For it must not he fnrmttm
that, if her majesty's government proceeds
during this sealing season upon the basis of Its
contention as to the riehts of th rn,iiin
sealers no choice is left to this government but
io proceed on tne basis of its confident con
tention that pelagic sealing in the TtebrW
is an infraction of its jurisdiction and property
uKiiw ms lorusnip win nardly fail to see this.
Herein, in the opinion of the resident nm.
sists the gravity of the present situation and
ue is uoi wuimg to dc lounc in anv degree re
sponsible for the results ifcit. mnv tnnr tv,n
Insistence by either government during this
season upon me extreme rights claimed by It.
In his opinion it would discrelit in the eyes of
the world the two great governments involved
if the paltry profits of a single season should
be allowed to thwart or even riwtm-h
honorable and friendly adjustment of their
differences, whi h is so nearly concluded
but if his lordship shall adhere to his
refusal to unite with us in nmmnt
and effective measures to stop pelagic sealing
inu snau insist upon tree sealing for the British
subjects, the question as it affects this govern
ment Is no longer one of pecuniary loss or gain,
uui hum ui u'.mor anu sen-respect.
The president linds tt difficult to heiiom ,,
Lord -Salisbury is serious in proiwsing that this
ioteruuieni snau tase separate bonds from the
owners of about UX) Canadian sealing vea-ioio i
indemnify it for the injury they may severally
mui-.iuyon our juris nction or property and
mm- decline to discuss a suir'-estion whieh nniu
h- respect for Lord Salisbury and his belief
mai ns ior.;s.np nas a due appreciation of the
gravity of this discussion, enable him to treat
with seriousness. We should doubtless have to
pursue and capture upon the sea manv of the
Dwners of those vessels to secure the bonds
suggested, and as the condition is to be that
the obligers shall pay "any damages which the
inmraiors may aujuuge - while the treaty
rives the arbitrators no power to adjudge any
damages, that transaction would be without
risk to the obligers and of no value to us. This
government cannot consent to have what it be
lieves to be its rights destroyed or Imp.unU
pending their determination by an agreed trib
unal, however adequate the security offered.
In closing Mr. Wharton savs:
The president directs me to say in conclu
sion that the modus of last rear Is the wt ),;..

more absolute, not less lie does not desire to

tion, he expresses the hope that Lord Salis-
oury win give a prompt and friendly assent to
renew the modus. Uie Dresid - nt will hear ith
regret that her majesty's government continues
to assert a right to deal with this subject pre
cisely as if no provision had been made for a
settlement of the dispute: and In this event this
government, as has already been pointed out,
will be compelled to deal with the subject on
the same basis and to use every means in its
power to protect from destruction or serious
Injury property and jurisdictional rights which
it has long claimed and enjoyed.
London, March 28. In his renlv ti
Mr. Wharton's note Lord Salisbury iys:
we trunk that the nrohib tion of
sealing, if it stands alone, will be un
just to imtisn sealers if the decision of
tne arbitrators should be adverse to the
United States. We are, however, will
ing when the treaty has been ratified to
agree to an arrangement similar to
mat of last year if the United
States will consent that the arbitra
tors should, in event of a de
cision adverse to the United
States, assess the damages which the
prohibition of sealing shall have inflict
ed on British sealers during the penden
cy of the arbitration and in event of a
decision adverse to Great Britain, shnnld
assess the damages which the limitation
of slaughter during the pendency of ar
bitration have inflicted on the United
States or its lessees. We are also will
ing after ihe ratification of the treatv.
to prohibit sealing in the disputed wa
ters, it vessels be exempted from giving
security for such damages as the arbi
trators may assess in case of a decision
adverse to Great Britain, the arbitrators
to receive the necessary authority in
their behalf. In this case a restriction
of slaughter on the islands will not in
point of equity be necessary. Her
majesty's government is unable to see
any other than one of these two meth
ods of restricting seal hunting in the
disputed waters during the arbitration,
which would be equitable to both
Sir Julian Tauncefote, British minis
ter to Washington, accompanies the
note of Lord Salisbury with a formal
protest against the government of the
United States sending cruisers to the
Behring sea pending an examination
into the case and says the British
government must hold the United
Suites responsible for the consequences
that may ensue from acts whieh are
contrary to the established principle
of international law.
"THE RIPPER" DISCOVERED.
Deenlnp, the Liverpool Murderer, Said to
Have. Made a Confession-The Latest Two,
Whitechapel M orders Committed By
Melbourne, -March 23. The Argu9
declares that Deening, the Liverpool
murderer, has made a confession.
Strong suspicion has been entertained
here and in England that Deening is
the notorious "Jack the Ripper," the
slayer of the Whitechapel outcasts in
London, and this suspicion is borne
out, not only by Deening's appear
ance, which closely tallies with the
description given of the White
chapel fiend, but also by his a'leged
confession. The Argus is a reliable
newspaper and there is no reason to
doubt the truthfulness of the state
ment it makes to-day that Deening has
acknowledged that he killed his wife
and four children at Dinham villa, at
Rain FI ill. near Liverpool, and that he
murdered and mutilated the last two
women whose bodies were found in the
purlieus of Whitechapel. Although
he has confessed that these two
Whitechapel women fell victims
to his mania for murder, he,
while not denying, does mt admit
that he killed the other Whitechapel
women, whose murders have attracted
tha attention of the whole world. It
is believed, however, that when he
fir.ds all hope of escape from the
clrtches of the law cut off, he will
ccifess not only these murders bnt
others of which the police know noth
ing. In his confession, the Argus says,
Deening makes no mention of his ob
j"ct in mutilating the bodies of hi?
iiitechapel victims and removing cer
tain of the organs, but, it adds, there
is scarcely a doubt that the man is
aiMLted with a disease similar iu some
rejects to nymphomania.
Th- t're-iilent .kn Cim.-reHi For nn Ap
propriation to Aid Uio ;. A. It. National
t iie.llnp lirnt.
Washington, March 2". A message
from the president transmitting a com
munication from the district commis
si mers, accompanied by a letter from
the chairman of the executive commit
tee of the G. A. R. encampment to be
held next September, was laid before
the senate yesterday.
An appeal is made for S100.000. nnn.
half to be paid by the district for the
expenses of the encampment. The
president says: "The event is one of
national interest and the atten lance
of surviving union soldiers will prob
ably be lanrer than at anv ene.nmn.
mcnt that has ever been held. The
parade of the survivors of our
great armies on Pennsylvania ave
nue will bring vividly back those
momentous days when the great
armies of the east and west marched
through the streets of Washington in
high parade and were received by our
citizens with joyful acolai n. It seems
to me mat it wouiu be highly appro
priate for congress to aid in making
this demonstation impressive and in
extending to those soldiers whoso lives
a beneficent providence has prolonged
an opportunity to see in the security
and peaceful development and pros
perity which now so happily prevail at
the national capital the fruits of their
sacrifice and valor."
NO RUBSER STAMPS.
Hank Wliri-n -Must Write Their Signature
on Circulation Notes.
Washington, March 2a -The comp
troller of t ie currency was asked to.
day if it was legal for bank officers to
stamp signatures on circulation uotes
instead oi writing them. The comp
troller made the following reply:
The comptroller of the currency
states sections 5,172 and 5.1S2 of the re
vised statutes ef the United State r.
quire that national bank currency, to
maKe ii a icgat issue, shall be attested
by the signature of the nresidpnt
vice-president and cashier. This lan
guage has always been construed
by the comptroller of the cur
rency to mean the signing of
notes by hand with a pen, in such man
ner as to make them obli'itciy promis
sory notes of the association. Numer
ous applications have been received by
the comptroller to have signatures of
bank officers engraved upon the plates
or pjaced upon the notes with a stamp,
but such requests have been refused!
It has come to the knowledge of the
comptroller that signatures have been
stamped by officials of certain banks
upon their currency, and in each case
instructions have been given that the
practice should be stopped and steps
taken to have currency so stamped
called in and retired.

The Casting Vote of the Speaker Save It
From Being Laid on the Table-Ex-citinjf
Scene During the
A Cloe Call.
Washington, March 25. The last leg
islative day cf the silver debate opened
with crowded galleries and a full at
tendance of members of the house.
Immediately after the reading of tho
journal, the period of general debate
was extended three hours by the an
nouncement of Mr. Iiland that he
would postpone the motion f,.r tke
previous question until 5 o'clock, to
give opportunity for greater debate.
Representative Williams, of ll.inois,
a democratic member of the committee
on coinage, opened the debate in favor
of the bill.
Burke Cockran, of New York, next
spoke in opposition to the bill.
Mr. Cummings, of New York, spoke
briefly, saying that his constituents
were opposed to tho pending bill and
that he was not one of those who felt
at liberty to cross tho desires of their
constituents. Ho would, therefore, as
the representative of the people of his
district, cast his vote against the bill.
Mr. Dingley, of Maine, also spoke in
opposition to the bilL
Speeches we then made by Messrs.
Dingley, Hatch, Bunn, Lond and Bart
line. At one minute after 5 o'clock Mr.
Bland, the advocato of the free silver
coinage bill, was recognized by the
speaker, and in a quiet tone of voi e
demanded tho previous question on
the pending bilL
Mr. Burrows, of Michigan, moved to
lay the pending bill on the table, and
said that motion took precedence of
the motion of the gentleman from Mis
souri (Mr. Bland), and demanded tho
yeas and navs on his motion.
The chair decided in favor of Mr.
Burrows, and then, amid intense excite
ment, 'the clerk began to call the roll
on Mr. Burrows' motion, which brought
the question to a square test vote. Ex
citement became intense as the call
progressed, an I the members plainly
showed it by the restless manner with
which they moved about and crowded
to the space in front of the speaker's
At the conclusion of tho roll call the
excitement had risen to fever heat. At
first a rumor spread that the motion
had been carried by three votes and
that the Bland bill was beaten. An
anti-silver man in the house started tn
shout, but quickly checked himself.
Private information given out that the
vote stood yeas 143, nays 147, excited
every member and the aisles were
The recapitation beiig completed
the speaker aroso to announce the re
sult. But before doing so directed the
clerk to call his name. The clerk
ealled "Mr. Crisp, of Georgia," and
"Mr. Crisp, of Georgia," availing him
self of his right as a representative,
cast his vote in the affirmative amid
tho deafening applause of the friends
of the measure.
Mr. Bland, not aware that the speak
er's vote save I his measure from im
mediate annihilation, changed his votj
from the negative to the affirmative in
order that he might have an onnortnn-
ity to move a reconsideration, but
oeing aavised in a moment that the
motion was defeated by a tie vote,
again changed to the negative In the
meantime the members had climtnrpH
in the space in front of the speaker's
aesK ana many ot them propounded
questions as to the side upon which
they were recorded. In each case the
reply was a satisfactory one and no
change was made in the result At
this moment, Mr. Enloe. of Tennosn
with his hat on, hastily strode into the
nouse ana saia ne desired to have his
The speaker asked: "Was the gentle
man in the house during the roll call
and failed to hear his name called?"
Mr. Enloe was compelled to respond
in the negative, and the speaker said
he could not vote.
The motion was lost by a tie vote of
yeas, 148; nays US.
Mr. Outhwate, of Ohio, at once
moved to adjourn. The motion tempo
rarily left the members at sea as to
their course, and Mr. Bland, rising to
a parliamentary Inquiry, asked
whether the effect of an adjournment
would be to make another special order
necessary to call np the bill The
speaker said it would.
The vote on adjournment was de
clared lost yeas. 93; nays, 193.
Thoa Mr. Johnson, of Ohio, took his
hand in the fight with a motion to re
consider the vote by which the house
refused to table the bill, and Mr. Bland
parried the foil with a motion to lay
the motion on the table. The motion
to table the motion to reconsider was
rejected-yeas 145; nays 149. Then
it was the turn of the anti-silver men
to applaud and they did so with a vim.
The speaker stated that the vote oc
curred on the motion to reconsider and
Mr. Reed, of Maine, sprang to his feet
and demanded yeas aud nays and the
roll was called.
The speaker, without ordering a re
capitulation, announced that the mo
