Ever 6inco tho movement toward Klon

marines will romain at St. Michael's

Tho general impression at St. Mi

from this time on will not bo ablo to
get over 1,000 miles up tho river before
they will bo frozen in. All independ

GREAT BRITAIN'S MEANNESS.

Unter a Sealing: Conference.
London', Oct. 7. Tho officials of tho
British foreign ofllco have communi
cated to tho United States ambassador,
Colonel John Hay, tho final decision
that tho government of Great Britain
must refuse to tako part in any sealing
conference with representatives of Rus
Bia and Japan. Tho British govern
ment, howover, asserts its willingness
to confer with tho United States alone,
but it insists that Russia and Japan aro
not interested in tho Eering sea seals to
a degree entitling thorn to representa
tion at tho conference. Tho British
government does not suggest any dato
for a conferenco with tho United
States, and it is thought probable in
London that Great Britain's with
drawal will result in two meetings, one
between tho United States, Russia and
Japan, and tho other between tho
United States, Great Eritain and Can
ada. It can not bo too strongly reiterated
that tho withdrawal of Great Britain
from tho Washington conferenco is duo
Canada's insistence, and that until tho
Canadian officials informed tho foreign
ofllco hevo of Canada's objections to
meeting Russia aud Japan, out of fear
of being outvoted, Great Britain fully
intended to enter tho conference with
tho thrro other governments.
But for Colonel Hay's representa
tions, tho first announcement of Great
Britain's unwillingness to tako part in
tho conferenco would havo been final,
but tho United States ambassador bo
plainly pointed out tho unusual char
acter of Great Britain's cluiugo of mind
