London, July IT. The pubticetkjsi of
Secretary Sherman's dispatch on the
Eehrir.g sea question relights momen
tarily in the English press the smolder
ing embers of recent criticisms of Amer
ican diplomatic methods. The text ot
that dbpatch is not pleasant readies
here, as the Pall Mall Gazeette and oth

for complaint. . if 190 words bad bees

Salisbury Duosat seam to Feel Hurt.
This dispatch was ore of the earliest
state papers presented by Ambassador
Hay to tbe foreign office after his arriv
al in London, and while the reply of Lord
Salisbury was a refusal to set aside the
expert testlmoty cf the British agent
employed in the ccse, there was no indi
cation that unfriendly feelings had been
excited, either before or after Foster's
return to London from St. Petersburg.
The negotiations have remained in pro
gres with an increasing probability that
the British government will ultimately
conrer.t to send a representative to a
conference at Warhlnston when Russia
and Japan have been drawn into it.
Kesult of Ambassador Hay's Tact.
The negotiations are controlled by
Ambassador Hay, and his tact and flex
ibility have tended to minimize "the effect
of two or three passages in the original
dispatch, which critics In the London
press consider objectionable in form and
lacking in courtesy. The protection of
the seal herd is really a question not of
International law, but of international
oomity and natural history, and thero

reported that the British have formally

The Issue between these experts, short

are being exjermipated under existing
regulations. ' The American finding was
in the affirmative. If Foster Iras paved
the way tor an international conference
ta protect the seals, he has secured the
most urgent of the demands made by
our government, but there is still ne
evidence that the British government is
willing to enter into a modus vhrendi to

NO JAPU-SPAJilsD ALMAXCE.
Fnele Sam Not Likely to Rave Two Na
tions ta Lick at Oner,
Washington, July i". At the Japan
ese legation here no credence is given to
the report cabled from London that the
Spanish and . Japanese governments
have entered into an alliance against
the United States.' It is pointed cut
that the Spanish newspapers are nearly
as bitter in their denunciations of the
Japanese, whom they charge with
giving material aid to the Philippine
insurgents, as they are against this
government for permitting arms and
men to be sent to Cuba. It was stated
In the most positive terms that there
was absolutely no truth in the rumor.
A cable dispatch gave great significance
to the visit ot the Japanese ambassador
to Spain, who is a prince, to the sum
mer residence of the queea regent, to
invest the little king with the Japanese
order of the Chrysanthemum.
He was received with full state by
the Duke ef Tetuan. Spanish minister
of foreign affairs, and ail the court
functionaries. The streets were lined
with troops. The distinguished visit irs
were conduced, to the palace, whVre
the qfleen and a brilliant retinue wel
comed them with high honors. At tbe
Spanish legation here -it was explained
that the presentation of the Chrysanthe
mum dfecoratlontto King Alfonso had
do significance whatever, so far as the
Vnited States is concerned, and does
ot imply any change In the relations
between Japan and Spain.. Toe state
department has no Information what
ever of any alliance between Spain and

days, till now they muster ever 20.0C8

them. MeeUrgs they have in profusion,
and speakers from "GrauJand's icy

fields, all full of earnestness. Yesterday
the meetings nuftibered no lesa than six
teen and as there were anywhere up to
a dozen speakers, whs were limited to
five minutes, at each meeting-, it was im
possible for any one delegate to imbibe
more tKan a certain part cf all she good
things going. However, they did their
best. Note bock in hand they ru&hed
from meeting to meeting, only stopping
to show their appreciation ot eloqaecce
or sentiment by spontaneous applause.
The music is perhaps the most pleas
ing feature of tbe convention. Choirs of
150 to 2 CO voices are at each mooting, and
as tiia good old hymns are sunsi and a
few thousand extra voices' help out the
choruses, and the effect is inspiring. The
topics ucder diecuesica yesterday were
