Sends in a Dill.
New York, ewpt. 1". In the United
States circuit court the North American
Commercial company put in its answer
to the claim of the United States govern
ment for $130,1b5.50 on account of alleged
breach of contract and handed in a bill to
the government for t2S3,725 for alleged
loss of profit arising out of the same con
tract. The agreement in question was
entered into between the commercial
company and the United Slates iu March,
JS'Ju. It gave the company exclusive
right to catch seals about the islands of
St. George and St. Paul in Alaska, for
which the United States wns to receive an
nunual rental of 00,000 for twenty years
and 7.CC for each seal captured in
addition to a revenue of t- for each seal
sent here by the company.
The government alleges that the com
pany caught 7,500 seals during the first
year, for which it demands $57,187 in
addition to the $60,000 for rent. The com
pany says that part of these skins were
caught by the natives and shipped by the
company, which uever was allowed the
exclusive right as guaranteed iu the con
tract. They offer j15(',00O, the amount of
revenue tax and no n ore. The company
alleges tnnt it had a rifiht to seize 60,000
seals the first year and PKl.MW each suc
ceeding year, but while the negotiations
with Great Britain were pending it was
prohibited from catching any seals, and
thus suffered a loss of S2S3,725t It was to
