Great Ilrltnln Has l're.lpltnted Anotticr
Crisis in Itegtird tu the i-cnl
Washington, May 14. An ugly crisis has
been reached In tho negotiations between
the United States and Great Ilrlt.ilti look
in;; to the adoption of uniform relations
for the government of the seal llshory
this season. The Urltlsh government posi
tively refuses to re-enact tho regulations
of l.ist year, which prohibits the carry
Ins of firearms by sealing vessels through
the zone north of the twenty-fifth par
allel during the closed season. The United
States ollicl.ils look upon this as disas
trous to the seal fisheries, holding that
the result will be to tellcve the pelagic
sealers of the only resttlctlon which litis
operated to prevent an unlimited slaughter
ol the heids. While killing by llre.irms
lemnlns Illegal it is lcnllssed It will be
Impossible to enforce this prohibition If
.inns can be freely can led, for lliu sealers
would kill secretly unless they should
happen to be under the vety eye of a.
revenue cutter. Meanwhile the United
States cutters have gonu out under the
old Instructions to seize all vessels car
rying arms not under seal These must
be modified speedily by orders sent
through the Alaska Commercial Company's
steamer, which leaves Han Francisco In a
day or two, or else there may be another
big claim for damages on account of Illegal
seUures filed by the Itritlsh government.
The attitude of the latter Is viewed with
much dissatisfaction at the state depart
ment, where It Is regal ded as an evidence
ot the unwarrantable concession to the
Canadian pelagic sealers. It is also held
the effect of the Itiltlsh action Is to prac
tically nullify all measures of protection
for the seals that were conferred by the
Paris arbitration, and It would not be
surprising if this course is persisted In If
It resulted In a declaration by the United
States of tho abrogation of tho treaty.
It docs not appear that any baking pow
der, when presented In competition with
the Royal, either nt the government tests
or before world's fair Juries, has ever re
ceived favor or award over the Royal or
made an equal showing in purity, strength

proceeded to emasculate the bill 111 other

the exclusively rallroid committee bill.
As Senator Peers' bill was framed when
It came up for amendment mid engross

that meant the dlstiiptlon ot railway labor

they did accept the Insmance they could

When the election bill conference commit
tee adjourned this evening, the main point
of dispute between the two liousen had
boon compromised, and nn agreement on
election legislation had been practlcnlly
reached. It must not be understood that
a binding obligation wns enteicd Into
which cannot be broken, but the steps
tnken were siilllelcitt to warrant the pre
diction that a good election bill will be
forthcoming. Senator Mott wns In St.
I.oiils ami llcpresentatlve Weltihold was
not present, but both or these conferrers
had expiesed a willingness to compromise
on the conditions named. In brief, the
committee has decided to report a substi
tute for both the houe and senate bills,
The great point of dispute wns over the
ntanner of choosing the election commis
sioners, but lids difference was compro
mised by an agreement to have the com
missioners appointed bv the governor and
ma ins of St Louis and Kansas CItv, of
iquil aiithnrlt.v, and 10 receive the same
salary, while the thl"! commissioner was
to sit nt the time speclllcd 111 the safety
committee bill ntul lecclve the compensa
tion therein designated.
The minor details and machinery for reg
Istration and elections weie practically the
same In both bills and the confeirecs be
Ileve there will be no illllleiilty at all about
coming to an mulct standing. No definite
statement, however, will be submitted un
til the return of Senator Mott and Heine,
sentntlve Welnhold, both of whom have
shown a disposition to reach an ngrcc
liient. The determination of the committee to re
port a substitute for both bills wns due to
the fact that the Itcpuhlic.ins In the house
weio unwilling to have the law referred
to as the meauie dialled by the safety
committee, ami the Democrats In the sen
ate would not tolerate a bill teferred to
