Htanley then described his travels, and
pointed out that although so much had
neen done br EWllKh travelers to ncen
the dark regions of Africa, yet this coun
try rauea to take advantage or their dis
coveries. In a bantering manner Stan
ley spoke of tka great interest the Ger
man had manifoHted in the flora and
fanna of Afrira, whilst on the part of
this country there waa aa indifference
as hi what aotnallv was noourrino?.
Numbers of bit friends, however, had
com together to try and do something

anoalA be English, a part or portion of
th British possessions some time. Thev

If it were merely a question of rival
ry lietween the English mid the German
cempany, he shotiM not mind, but when
the government backed up the Ger
man corntianv it was not a fair fight,
and that capital which would have made
a railway right up to Victoria Nyaasa
would he wiwteil. Instead of people in
two years' rime being able to take tick
eta to Victoria Nyauia (laughter), there
wonld be nothing to show except a
bushel of treaties. Hut to the Germans
there was nobody to say even no. He
could apeak very forcibly but he was re
strained. If the fairest portions of
Africa were given np to others and only
Sterile lands he left, h would be one of
the Hrst to advise the Drttinh company to
retire. He thought he had said enough.
A word to the win was enough. He
hoped they would reineinlier and ponder
over the suggestions in what waa said.
Mr. Stanley's tardiness in keeping en
gagement has Iieen the subject of a
great deal of comment since his return,
lie ha ecarcely attended a dinner, a re
ception, or any other gathering in his
honor that he has not kept th guest
waiting at lat half an hour, and his
dilaturfnexs at the dinner given to him
by Hi ohamber of oomraerc was posi
tively exasperating. Fully an hour and
a half elapsed after the guest had as
sembled before it pleased the petted and
obviously spoiled Don of the occasion to
honor them with his presence, nor did he
deign to awlortze for his lateness. His
flanoee, Ills Tennaut, waa seated next
to him at table, and th ohairman, in
welcoming the explorer, took occasion
to speak at great length of his coming
marriage, much to the confusion of th
lady, but apparently with no effect
upon Mr. Stanloy.

general In this city, speaking on th
same subject, said: "There is no fear
of the Oliimsfers attaining their object,

do not lielieve that the cordial feeling

THI BEHRIN'3 SEA QUESTION
till Open for Aajuelnaen Great Brit
ain's Propealtlon Uejeeted.
Nw York, May M. In a special to
Tha Herald it Washington correspond
I learn that at th cabinet meeting It
wm decided to reject the British propo
sition submitted three week ago for
settlement of the Behring question. Secre
tary Windom was decidedly opposed to
th acceptance of the proposal first
because It provisions were deemed by
hira entlrelv inadequate to secure the
professed oiiject of preserving seal life
in tJehrina- sea. and. second. hecHiis it
virtually ignored the established posi
tion of the United States in that sea
arising out of its ownership of the parti
ally surrounding shores and of a part of
the islands within the sea: the possession
of a universally recognized Ixuiudary line
winch included in tno cession to in
United States the very part of the sea
wherein alone this country has sought
to exercise a territorial jurisdiction: the
inheritance from Hussla of a continuous
claim of Jurisdiction never directly
questioned nor successfully assailed, and
the undoiibtt-d right that the United
States has to the exercise of a reason
able police jurisdiction to protect Its
own prorty and interests in the
Behring sea and sccuru to itself th nat
ural nse and rrolit thereof.
Seoretarv Blaine did not advocate an
acceptance of tlio proposal and thought
it probably that further negotiation
would abato the Canadian contentions
and improve the position of the United
Bute. Th British proposal, being
without snnnort from either of the two
departments immediately concerned
with it, necessarily met with rejection,
a like fat with that which overtook the
oreoedina American nronosal in th
council of the government of Canada.
1 understand rust in noiMier oase
an accentanc of the proposal anticipated
by the party snbigHting it. but that the
only result expected from th exchange
of proposal was th bringing of th par
ties a little nearer together by th elim
ination of some of the point of differ
ence. To some extent, accord imr to my
information, this expectation hna beau
realized, so that th negotiation at
really in a better state, notwithstanding
the rejection of th counter proposals,
than at the beginning.
i am advised that th next tep In th
negotiations will be the discussion and
wttlement of the details connected with
with th action of a joint commission of
expert to pretiar and submit to th
two governments full project a the
basis of treaty by which the whole ques
tion can b permanently settled.
It is possible that th government of
Russia may be directly represented in this
souimission of experts, but that is a
matter which has not received any con
lideration. and is altogether likely to I
toverned by the wishes iff that vovcrn-
tuent at th proper time.
