Mr. I'hf Ki-.rlrrtlun.
An important meeting of the new dem
ocrtaic slate central committee was held
at Sprlntflolil yesterday. More than or
dinary interest was attached to the meet
tng from tbe fact that new officers were
to he chosen for the ensuing two years,
and that tliere was somewhat of a divis
ion among the members as to whether the
old oruml. ition should be continded.
The olliri'M of the old committee were
IMns P. I'belpa, Monmouth, chairman;
Theodore- Nelson, Decatur, secretary, and
W. B. Brinton, of Tuscola, treasurer.
It was natural to suppose in view of
the triumphant victory achieved by the
Illinois democracy last Noyember, that
tbe splendid and conspicuous work of the
officers and executive committee, would
be unanimously endorsed b) the full
committee by re electing Chairman
I'oelts and bis colleagues. Last week,
however, ramors organ to circulate hos
tile to this idea, and yesterday morning a
carefully devised pi in was disclose i for
"a new deal." Tbii aroused tbe friends
of Mr. Ptielps and tbe old executive
board, whom, with tbe assistance of many
prominent democrats from various sec
tions of the state, determined to maintain
their supremacy. They were actuated in
this course by the belief that it would
not only he unwise but unjust to repudi
ate tbe men who bad managed the cam
paign of ly.ii) so successfully. Tbe sen
timent, aside from the committeemen
themselves, predominated largely in favor
of the old officers, which had an appre-
"imately settling the
convened in open
m . with every
one of the 27 memoes present and a large
number of visitors who were more or less
interested in its organization. Prominent
among the lattsr was Ocn. John M. Pal
mer. Oeorge M. Haynes, called tbe
meeting to order. Timothy Oruas was
elected tcmp-rry chairman and J. W.
Potter secretary. A motion to proceed
to the election of permanent officers, was
followed by two amendments, and a sub
stitute favoring the adjoinment of the
committee until next day. This dilatory
move was fathered by the anti Phelps
faction, who realized that they were out
numbered. A motion to lay the whole
matter on the table, was carried by a vote
of 17 to 10. This showed the relative
strenubt of the opposing forces, and Mr.
Haby, tbe minori'.ys candidate for chair
man, grarcfully acknowledged defeat by
. moving ttie re election of Mr. Phelps
unanimously by acclamation, wbich mo
t'on prev died whitout a dissenting voice.
Mr. Phelps feeling thanked the members
for the high compliment paid him, and
pledged himself to renewed efforts in the
important office to which he had been re
elected. He then made a spirited address,
wbich evoked considerab'e applause, pre
dicting that Illinois would be a reliably
democratic state t7 1892. Secretary
Nelson and Treasurer Brinlon were elect
ed with the same unanimits accorded
Chairman Phelps, when the committee
went into executive session.

United States and Great Britain up to

braces a letter dated Aug. 3- from
Ixtnl Salisbury to Sir Julian Pnuneefote,
tbe British minister here, lit reply to
Secretary Blaine's letter of last July
niainlaiuiiiK that the United States de
rivtHl from Russia rights of jurisiliction
over tlie waters of Bvhring sea to a dis
tance of 100 miles from the coa-t.
liOnl Salisbury in bis letter conU-ndain
brief: That England refused to ailmit any
part of the Russian claim, asserted by the
ukase of of maritime jurisiliction and
exclusive right of fishing throughout the
whole extent of Behriux sea as far north
1 1 llelirll.K straita; that tbe treaties of
I s-r, between Great Britain and Russia
and the United Suites and Russia were
ruiiarded on both sides as a renunciation
on the part of Russia of that claim in its
entiiely. and that, though Behriin; straits
were known and siecitially provided for,
B -hrii.s; sea whs not known by that name
at the time, but was regarded as a part of
the Pari lie ocenti. In support of this con
tention he sends copies of correspondence
from the archive ot the British foreign
ollice showing that England protested
against tbe Russian claim from the begin
ning, and that the Russian government
give verlial assurance that said claim
should not lie insisted upon.
The lte.lv to lllalne'e Question.
Iord Salisbury's letter concludio as fol
l.iits: "The answer, therefore, to the
qtiesiious with which Mr. Blaine con
eludes Ids dispatch ia that her majesty's
government have always claimed tbe
freedom of navigation and fishing iu the
waters of Bel. rings sea outside t lie usual
territorial limit, of one marine league
from the c.l; that it is impossible to ail
mit that a public right to llsh, catch seals,
or pursue any other lawful occuiuition on
the high seas can be held to be abandoned
to a nation from the mere fact that for a
certain number of years it has not suited
the subjects of that uation to exercise it.
It must lie remembered that British Col
umbia tuts come into existence as a colony
at a comparatively recent date and that
the lint considerable influx of population,
some thirty years ago, was due to the
discovery of gold and did not tend to an im
mediate development of theshipping inter
ests." He then instructs Minister Paunce
fote, if Mr. Blaine still differs iu his view
oft he matter, to offer to refer the matter
to uibit ration.
Secretary niulneft Response.
Secretary Blaine, in his resHnse ad
dressed to Sir Julian Pauneefote on the
17th of December last, at the outset in
sists upon the correctness and validity of
the position which has been advocated by
the government of the United States iu de
fense of American rights in the Behriug
sea. He insists that the term "Pitcitic
ocean'1 did not at the time referred to in
clude Behriug sea, which was named in
the maps of the period as it is named now.
and that tbe only matters settled by the
treaties was as to rights south of Brh
riug sen. He says that In the reaties not
once was Retiring sea referred to. and
lays flint it wns impossible that such an
omission should have been made of it was
Intended to include that sea in the treat
ies. He declares that this position is
proved by the documents so fully that it is
The Questions Asked Again.
After again stating that for forty years
fireat Britain never exercised the rights
In Behriug sea which she now claims, Mr.
Blaine sys: "This government again in
sists that Great Britain and the United
States recognized, respected, and olieyed
the authority of Russia in the Behring
ea, and did it for more than forty years
after tbe treaties with Russia were nego
tiated. It still remains for England to
explain why she persistently vio
lates the same rights when transferred
to the ownership of the United States."
Referring to some elementary principles
Of international law touching the freedom
Df the seas alluded to by Lord Salisbury,
Mr. Blaine refers to the fact thnt the BritI
ish parliament in 1815 enacted a law for
the purpose of making the detention of
Napoleon on the island of St. Helena more
secure, assuming to exclude the ships of
any nationality not only from landing on
the island, but forbidding them from hov
ering within eight leagues of the coast of
Another Case In Point.
He argues that point at lentrth. ami
then cites the fai t that: "Even to day,
while her majesty's government is aiding
one of her colonies to destroy the' Ameri
can seal fisheries, another colony, with
ber consent, has established a pearl fishery
in an area of the Indian ocean, lift) miles

of power that a license fee is collected
from the vessels engaged iu the jiearl fish

power goes to the exteut of making for

lit. The OnVrof Arbitration.
Secretary Blaine savs. referrini to tl,
ffer of arbitration of the question,
whether any country has a riirht to extern!
Its jurisdiction more than one marine
league from land, that no one disputes
that as a rule, but the question is whether
there may not be exceptions whose en
forcement does not interfere with those
highways of commerce which the necessi
ties and usage of the World have marliul
out. He proiosesthat the "real quest ions"
be arbitrated, which in brief arc What
rights, if any, in Behring sea were con

what are now the rights of the triiitd

-nuance was ao small that aU fo
.uit luid aside and the conference
split up into little groups of senators, who
discussed the situation with each other.
The general impression prevailed that the
financial bill would have to be disposed of
before anything else conld be taken up.
The silver senators, several of whom were
present, insisted on this and it was agreed
informally to continue the disenssion ot
the bill and to try to pass it by Thursday
under the existing rules.
Fwe Coinage Bare to Win.
It was generally conceded that the free
coinage amendment of Senator Stewart,
or something like it. would prevaiL It
was suggesti-d that the Democratic sena
tors, in order to prevent the consideration
of the election bill, would prolong the dis
cussion of the financial bill. In this event,
it w as said, it would be necessary to adopt
the cloture rule. When the necessity for
this apienrs another caucus will be called.
They Depend on tbe Honae.
A leading Republican senntorsaid after
the adjournment that the eastern Repub
licans were not. frightened at the prospect
of the passage of a free coinage bill, as they
felt assured it. could not pass the house.
He said further that the other friends of
the elect-ion hill did not share tbe opinion
of Hoar t hat the bill was beyond hope.
The Vote In the Senate.
It. was a big surprise for Hoar when he
moved in the senate to take up the elec
tion bill to have thnt motion antagonized
by Stewart's to take up the silver bilL
George had the floor to speak on the elec
tion bill, but yielded to Stewart's motion,
and when Hoar attempted to call his at
tention to "the arrangement we have
made" he was shut off bv Goraan's point
of order that the motion was not debata
ble. The Republicans responsible for the
sudden change of situation were Joues of
Nevada, McUonnell, Shoup, Stanford,
Stewart, Teller, Washburn, and W'olcott,
Otherwise tho vote was a party otie.
Sherman Makes a Protest.
As soon as the bill had been read Stew
art was on t he floor with an amendment
providing for absolute free coinage. He
supported the amendment for a few ino
ments.and t hen Shermain said that tbesud
deu and unexpected change of scene, and
the introduction of a new topic of debate
should not allow the revolutionary meas
ure now proposed (Stewart's amendment;
to puss without the serious attention ol
every senator. He appealed to the sober
sense of responsibility on the Democratic
side of the chatnlier against a measure
which he regarded as revolutionary and
dangerous, and the effect of which (if it
should liecome law I would be more destruc
tive than that of any measure that had
lieett proposed for years. The amendment
odei-iil by tbe senator from NevadB
would change entirely the whole basis of
the valuation of all tbe property of the
Would l.lsmliilsh Circulation.
It would demonetize one half of the
money of the country (gold) and would
degrade the other half (silver) to a low
level;so that its effect would be toditninish
the volume of circulation. If the friends
of silver had only patience and would wait
until the element of time acted on the
silver law of last session, the policy of the
United States government and of the
French government, together with the use
of silver iu the South American states,
would lift up silver again to the gold
standard. The recent rise and fall iu sil
ver hud not taken place in the natural
course of business, but as tbe effect of a
struggle befwen the bulls and bears. Rea
gan and Stewart replied to Sherman, the
latter saying that it was not the silver
men, but the "gold ring" which had tam
pered with the price of silver.

Chicago, Jan. . Emma Abbott, the
noted singer, died at Salt Lake City. Utah,
Just at sunrise yesterday. Her death was
caused by pneumonia and heart trouble.
She had been making
a tour of the principal
cities in the west. On
Dec 81 she arrived at
Salt Lake City , where
she was billed for a
which she opened on
New Year's night.
At that time she had
a slight cold, as she
thought, though ber phyiicians advised
ber not to attempt to appear on the open
ing night. The ailment rapidly grew
worse, and pneumonia set in. This was
aggravated by heart trouble, due, it is
thought, to the liberal use of opiates given
for her relief. She sank rapidly and
passed away peacefully. Her remains
will be brought here and the funeral will
take place Friday from Central Music
hall. Miss Abbott, or more properly Mrs.
Wetherell, wben dying, expressed a wish
to be buried beside the body of her late
husband at Worcester, Mass. It is a curi
ous coincidence that Mr. Wetherell died
in Denver exactly two years ago at almost
the same hour and from the same causes,
pneumonia and heart trouble, that led to
bis wife's death.
Ber First Pablle Appearance.
The first known of Emma Abbott was
when her father, a music teacher, moved
to Peoria, Ilia. Although but little more
than 8 years old, Emma was ambitious to
become a singer, and ber father allowed
her to assist hitn in a oonNsrt given in a
country school house. This was her first
public appearance. During one of her va
cations she went to visit a friend in a
neighboring town. While there the idea
occurred to ber that she could make same
money, which was greatly needed in the
family, by giving a concert. She Carried
out her idea and realised (10 from the en
tertainmet.t. which she gave to ber moth
A Little Wandering Minstrel.
Then for a time she taught a country
school; but finding that she could not suf
ficiently relieve the poverty of her parents
in that way, she resumed singing, going
from town to town, giving musical enter
tainments wherever she could find an au
dience. She bad many rough experiences
in those days, and endured much suffer
ing. Once, in going to ber concert, she
froze her feet, and at another time she
was so destit ute of means she cut off ber
long bair and sold it to obtain food. But
she was a brave little woman, and noth
ing chilled the warm currents of faith
and love that had their home in her sad
heart. She was often homesick, but that
made ber all the more anxious to send
every penny not necessary for her bare
subsistence back home. Many times she
had failures, utter and disheartening fail
area, but she kept struggling on.
A Tarn la the Tide.
All alone. Miss Abbott once sang her
way to New York to bear Parepa. The
lowest ebb of fortune and courage found
her at Toledo, O.. in the winter of 1870.
Just then, in tbe midst of her perplexities,
Clara Louise Kellogg, then in tbe first
glow of ber power and fame, beard ber
sing and decided at once to be ber sponsor
oenersctresH. Alias Abbott went to
New lorkand became the pupil of Er
rant She also obtained a position in
Dr. Cbapin's church and bere she made
many friends and through them was ena
bled to go to Europe and study music
under San Giovanni, W artel, and others
in Italy and France. She sang with suc
cess in Florence, London and elsewhere in
Europe, and was engaged for three years
Ber Well-Deserved Triumph.
Before singing ia England Miss Abbott
visited Italy, and at Florence, according
to II Corners Italiano, created a veritable
furor, being called thirteen times by an
enthusiastic multitude. On ber arrival in
London she made her debut at tbe Royal
Italian opera, Covent Garden. Her emo
tions on that memorable night it would
be difficult to describe. The enthusiasm
she aroused that night settled her fate
and sealed her success. Through England
and Ireland she sang herself into the love
of the people. On arriving In her native
country the brave little woman, who had
achieved such triumph abroad, made her
first appearance in New York, the pro
ceeds of which she gave to a charity of the
church whose beneficiary she had been.
Since that time she has been constantly
before the American public Mrs. Weth
erell was born in 1S30 at Chicago.
Sang Herself Into a Fortune.
A telegram from Denver says that her
business manager, George M. Loomis,
made tbe following statement yesterday:
"The fatal illness of Miss Abbott was con
tracted at the new opera house in Ogtlen,
wbich opened Dec. 'Si. The bouse was in
complete and damp. At first she ouly had
a slight cold but it later developed into an
aggravated case of pneumouia. Miss
Abbott had forty-three oiieraa in her re
pertoire. She has opened more opera
houses than any other actress. She leaves
an estate of M.OUO.OUO. The company will
go to New York, where they will disband."
