Interesting Census Figures of St. Louis.
Oflicinl figures on the population of
SL Louis giving sexes native and for
eign born, anil white and colored, have
been received from the :ensus office.
The totals are:
Total population of St. Louis . . 4'1 .770
Native Itorn ...a'.T.tls
Foreign liorn 11..T22
Total white i-.M.Tx:
Nativo white 310.7.11
Native parents l'JO.IU
For.-icn parents IPO.'.rsi
Foreign whiti 114.U.1
Total colored' Si.WJ
The casual reader can hardly fail to be im
pressed with the great proportion of native
born. It appears from the compilation that the
foreign-bom population of St Louis is only 30
per cent of the whole. The present census
goes furth-r than preceding censuses in analyz
ing the native born. It goes back a generation
sad gives the foreign-born and native-born
parents. Of the native-born white people of St,
Louis more than one-half are of parents born
outside of the United States.

WasHlNOTOX, March 29. Hachtmee--lation
is indulged in by naval oflkiera
respecting tbe possibilitiea of a conflict
in Behring sea. The -reaaela of the
United State navy that can be pat into
these waters within a reasonable time,
have already been named ia these din
patches. England has bow three men-
of-war in the north Pacific, and it would
take her bnt a few weeks at most to
rendezvous her Chinese, Japanese and
Australian squadrons io those waters
Only one of the three vmsels now there
is -regarded as formidable by oar
naval men, bat . she Is tn large
that our heaviest cruiser would be
but a pleasure craft alongside of her,
and England owns a dusen Just such
men-of-war within easy distance of tbe
theater of possible hostilities. The War
spite Is the name of the dreaded mil,
the flagship of the English squadron,
and she is heavily armored with the
most recent planL She has a displace
ment of 8,400 tons, while oar largest
man-of-war has but 4.500, She was
bnilt in Chatham, England, in 8rJ, and
was refitted a year ago. Her horse
power is 10,000 and her speed over
given mile was 18.75 knots per hoar,
but her nominal speed is about IS.
She Will average 9.85 pounds
of ecal per horse-power in
each hoar, bat can carry 1,130 tons of
coal and it will take her 7,000 miles
without recoaling. Her combined
length is S25 feet with S3 foot beam,
and the immense draught of 87.4 feet.
She is armed with four 22-ton guns, six
8-inch gnus eight rapid-fire and ten
Gatling or Hotehkiss guns and has two
torpedo tubes and four carriages for tho
purpose of exploding the Whithesd tor
pedoes She is -beyond doubt the best
equipped man-of-war in the matter of
guns in the world. Her sister ship, the
Imperinse, of the same size, has as largtf
guns but not quite as many of them.
A commander in the nary said that tho
Warspite could, as he expressed "it,
"lick any three ships we had at once,
and not have mnch of a fight either."
The other two vessels in the squadron,
the Champion and Melpomene, how
ever, would be easy prey for our ships,
as they are nnarmored. The latter is
built of steel, bnt not thick enough to
withstand the big guns of the Haiti
more or New York. She is rated ss a
third-class cruiser with a displacarment
of 2.940 tons, 9.000 horse-power, and an
average speed of about IS knots per
hour. Her draught is seventeen feet
and her steaming radius Is 8,000 miles.
She is tn feet long and has a beam of
fortyone feeL Her guns consist of six
8-inch breech-loading rifles weighing
five tons each, ten rapid firing and three
Hotehkiss guns The batteries of the
Melpomene and Yorktown are almost
identical. The Raltimore would give
the Warspite the hardest fight as she
can outsail her and is very heavily ar
mored. The Champion is superior to the Mel
pomene for fighting purposes, as her
battery Is very heavy for her class and
consists of four 8-inch and eight 5-inch
rapid-firing and six Hotehkiss guns In
addition to this she haa on board twenty-one
submarine fish torpedoes, pro
jectiles that can be launched and will
propel themselves on the water's edge to
the objective ship. Her displacement is
S.3S0 tons Her length, beam, speed
and cool bins are about the same as the
IN SECRET SESSION.
The Senate Considers the Last Tw. Note,
of Lord Kallsb-ary.
Washington. March 29. The senate,
on motion of Mr. Sherman, went into
executive session at 3 o'clock yesterday
afternoon and remained behind closed
doors for three honrs and ten minutes.
The stigma which it had placed on
CapL Rassett, its venerable doorkeeper
in rejecting him from the chamber dnr
ing the several recent executive sessions
was partly condoned for by his re-admission
to the confidence of the body.
The secret session was almost ss un
interesting as a session of the senate
can possibly be. When the last two
notes of Lord Salisbury had been read,
Mr. Sherman made another appeal for
the ratification of the treaty without
restriction. He said that Lord Salis
bury's replies showed that he had re
ceded from his position and that the
treaty could safely be ratified without
fear that the modus virendi would not
Mr. George occupied the major part
of the session by a prepared speech
which he read from manuscript with
occasional extemporaneous comments,
lie quoted copiously from diplomatic
records and international law bearing
on questions similar to those at issue.
Mr. George surprised many senators by
his eulogistic indorsement of President
Harrison's course, and spoke in compli
mentary terms of Mr. Harrison person
ally. He hoped the senate would ratify
the arbitration treaty and that it
would not be hampered by any resolu
tion or other restriction to tie the presi
Mr. Morgan and several other sena
tors made remarks in favor of the rati

to be an unanimous expression for its
adoption. As a number of senator ex
pressed a desire to speak on the subject,
it was agreed that another secret ses

should be held to-day and the chances
