Amount of Indemnity $-141,272 80,
Phis 50 Per Cent.
Seized British Seniors Oct 3Ioru
'J'liuii'llitlf tins Indemnity- That
The Stats Department, through Mr.
Thomas Cridler, Third A ssihtant Secretary
of State, gave out yesterday the follow
ing statement or facts in relation to the
Rehring Sea claims of England jgainit this
"The award of the Behring Sea claims
commission lias been filed in the Depart
ment or State. Th2 claims as presented by
the Britisli government to the commis
sion on account or Canadian vessels seized
in Behring Sea, aggregated, with Inter
est, $1,500,000. These Included, under
the claiuri tieaty, several cases not em
braced in the settlement proposed by Secre
tray Gresham. The award iibw made
umounUs to $-J9-i.t81.!)l, to Avhich is tJ
be added interest, which will increase the
total about 50 per cent. The award is
final and disp m's of all cases before it.
Payment under the treaty must be ma le
within six months.'
Adding riO per cent for the interest, us
indicated, the whole amount of indein ilty
will be $1-11, 272.SU.
This is ?23,000 less than the estimate
made unofficially, and which has heic
tororc been published. The wlhiest con
jectujes have leen made of the amount
of the awaid, officially ranging all the
way fiom $800,000 to ;! 1,000.
The ba-ls t.r the awaid, as given out
by the State Depaitment, is S2lM,lgl.91,
and the public is advised to add CO per
cent of that amount, to make a total.
The lata of Interest Is not given, ,ior is
It stated whether the Interest Was simple
Accotdlng to the State Department
statement, nil or the cases before It have
been disputed or. This excludes the
case ot the Black Diamond, 5,000,
and that of the Ada, .ft ,000;
Tor which claims have been filed.
When the Paris court decided that, this
country had no juiiaiUctlon in the Hehring
Sea, it was a foregone conclusion that
an Indemnity or some amount would have
been a-ked of this Government. Mr. Cleve
land suggested $125,000 In liquidation or
the debt. At this time the amount is
?i 11,272 ?, exclusive of the costf of
the commission and counsel f0C3.
The controversy actually began on Au
gust I, 1SSG, when the American steam- r
Corwin seized the Britih sealers Carolina.
Thornton, nnd, later, the Onward and
Favorite. The cutter Hear, imv on the
relief expedition to the Arctic, seized the
Ada. In all about fifteen nrltish sealers
were seized. The vessels claimed dam
agon not only for the seizure, but for the
business they might have done in seal
skins during the season, the whole amount
claimed being $780 0G0. The arbitration
commission has scaled the amount down
to something more than 50 per cent.

Yesterd iy's trading "was f t)ie character
made too familial in the Iaot few month!..
entirely prt fessional and insignificant.
There have been many weeks no.v of
fctaguation, almost uninterrupted by tlii
participations of real buyers. Bailies and
declines have followed each other, with no
meaning engineered ,((ir n.all profits by
the regular traders; ,,iijl this means only
ons thing, despite thc'lncessant clamors of
the boomrrs. There 1? no, belief in future
higher prices, strong enough to tcpipt the
large investment pooni to put up their
money. Until these people change thPir
opinion tlie talk of the prosperity ppople
can have no'irore potentiality than old
men's kibble cf green field. It is tlu
opinion of n any .succeWul operators tint
this year will sea ho 'change in the
situation, and that the pearly part of
lS'.IS ha promise certainly as much of
lower as of higher prices.
The total of the day's small biisincs.;
yesterday resulted instnaimdvancesneaily

Instances. Two or three Mocks seemed

Manhiltsm, Mftropnlll in, and Sugar were
all strong The opinion is held by many,
even those otheiwlse bearis'ily inclined,
that all these stocks aie destined co go
much higher In the nivr futuie. One of
the shrewdest men I know told me last
night that he is holding a considerable
block of McnoiKililan for 150. Sugir
all along he hap been a bull on. This
man says that the advances in all thiec
stocks are laigcly on buying by people
familiar with the properties.
It is certain that much is cxpect-id of
the friendship of Tammany to the two
New York city railroads. This is prob
ably well rounded. .Manhattan's plais
are the subject or innumerable rumor-.
After the advance yesterday it seems
probable that a temporiry reaction nWy
come today. I am ot the opinion ;hnt
if Manhattan can he sold at yesterday's
closing jirice today tlicre will be two
points' profit in it.
One or the favorite phrases of the bulls
in Sugar just, iioav Is that it is destined
to be a secoi.d Standard Oil. The oppo
sition or the new refineries -,vill probanly
not materialise. The profits of The
