Washington, Not. 11 The officers of
tho atate department were very much
surprised at the reports of the total fail
ure of the Canadian negotiations which
appeared yesterday In several morning
newspapers from their special corre
apondenta here. One of the officials said:
"That view Is not taken by the govern
ment at Washington. The representa
tives cf the Canadian government who
have Just left this city did not come to
Washington with any expectation of con
cluding any arrangement or treaty dur
ing their brief stay. They entertained
views npon the question of the sealing
regulations, and hoped to acauire accu
rate Information as to the views cf our
government upon the remaining ques

In Canada had failed (o adjust. The only

has not been the slightest check to the
renotiatfons further than the inevitable
delay In the apt tit ment of the sealing

were ho-pltably received, frankly talked
with and participated In a free and
frank disrusslon. If ever Irritating ques

In view of the recIal,. reports above
mentioned Colonel Foster has made pub
lic the following: "The representatives
of both the United States and Canada
who participated in the seal conference
on yesterday at the residence of Mr.
Foster deny that they have stated to
any correspondent of the press
or other person that the negotia
tions have been broken off, cr that an
ultimatum bat been presented and re
jected. On the other hand Jhey state
that the negotiations are still ia proa
A dispatch from Minneapolis quotes
Representative M. H. Johnson, of North
Dakota, in an interview,, declaring that
the sealing agitation te a mere ruse to
permit a small and select party to prey
on the treasury; that sealing confer
ences are rtdiculous and expensive
farces; that the destruction of the seal
herds is to be ardently desired on
grounds of the highest public good; that
reciprocity with Canadn. l a nntinn
senslcal and worthy of defeat.
The seal agitation, he believes. Is be
ing prolonged by men who are its bene
ficiaries In salaries and fees, and who
are in a ring. "The Parla tribunal cost
mis country nearly 1:50,000," said he.
In all we have spent $2,500,000 In the
seal matter with not one dollar of re
turns." AND JONES IS DOWN ON FOOT EIAU.'
