SALISBURY AND THE SEAL TE0tT3LE
n, premier Said To Be Assured That
Arbitration AT ill Settle the Matter
rsrnrli at Work on a Manifesto Bal
four Makes a Statement to Parliament
to Irish Relief; and Gets' a Big
'reHt Illness of Windthorst Euro
Losfkin, March 13. Lord Salisbury has
received, it is stated officially, dispatctiescf
a very satisfactory character from Si r Ju
lian Pauocefote, relative to the Be'iring
sea negotiations. It is said that the re is
erery reason to anticipate that no further
obstruction will be placed ia the way ,1
unconditional arbitration, and that both
America aud England will unite in na in
ternational arrangement for the protec
tion of the seal. The British government
is semi officially represented as bein3 anx
ious to put an end to tha indiscriminuta
slaughter of seal in Behring sea.
The Royal Labor Commission.
Earl Derby has signified his willingness
to become chairman of the royal corimis
sion on the subject of labor. It is ttated
oa the authority of a merr.ber of the cabi
net that the commission will report before
the close of the present year. Legis' ation
will then be adopted ia accordance with
its recommendations, and then the gov
ernment will be prepared to go to the
country on tha strength of that legisla
tion. It is certain that ther is nninn.
tiou of dissolving parliament until th
Conservatives have acted upon the labor
issues now ix'tora the country.
rarnt.Il in Retirement Again.
Parneli is making a good deal of mys
tery over the manifesto which he promised
to issue to the world, giving reasons for
his course in Irish affairs. It is said that
he wishes to secure the publication of tba
manifesto in Amerca about the same tin.e
as the arrival of the deputation which he
has sent to that country. Parnell has
made one of his disappearances like those
with Mrs. O'Shea, when an Irish member
of parliament, who wanted to find Parnell
usually bad to seek out Mrs. O'Shea and
obtain her intercession for the privilege of
au interview. There is no presumption
of that kind now. Private Secretary
Campbell ha disappeared as well as his
master, and they are both undoubtedly
engaged ou the manifesto.
The Kelief Work in Irelenri.
In thehou.' of commons yesterday Chief
Secretary Hj'fo ir asked a credit of 65,
Kil for tue n-.Iief of distress in Irelani
Every possi' ! means had been taken, he
said, to expedite relief works, which other
wise would not have been begun lefore
April or May. Eight thousand peasons
had been employed and about 40,000 been
relieved. 1L never allowed a statement
of actual starvation to go without imme
diate special inquiry and relief, if found
true, although many cases of fraud hid
come to light. There was no starvation
ou the mainland, but great risk of it in
tiie western islands.
Method of Distribution.
Wherever a reliable list of deserving
aud destitute families could be obtained,
employment was given on relief work, at
the rate of seven shillings per week in
money. Where such a list could rot be
obtained, the pay was given in supplies, a
stone of meal, valued at eleven tienee,
being given daily. This has caused a
diminution in the demand for relief. The
present roll of weekly wages amoun ed to
3,000. On February 28 the number em
ployed was 7.397, and 21,159 pound had
beeu paid in wages. John Morley and
Thomas Russel spoke in support f the
credit, which was adopted.
THE ILLNESS OF WINDTHORST.
Itoyal and Papal Solicitude for the
Health of Rome's Friend.
London, March 13. Berlin dispatches
state that the pope has telegraphed in
quiry as to the health of Herr Windtaorst.
The condition of the Roman Catholic
leader and the probable effect of hisceath,
should his illness prove fatal, of which, in
view of his advanced age, he being in his
T9th year, there is great apprehension, ex
cites much discussion. The kaiser, not
withstanding Herr Windthorst's o;:poj
tion to his naval projects, ia deeply con
cerned. No Man to Take His Place.
The kaiser has prided himself on win
ning over to the imperial cause Herr
Windthorst and his followers, and has
conceived what appear and is believed to
be a sincere attachment for the v teran
ehainpiouof the Roman church. In all
the negotiations for the resumption of
entirely cordial relations between Prussia
and the papacy Herr Windthorst ha been
principally consulted, and it was lurgely
due to his influence that the covert men t
at length declared its readiness to pro
mote a measure for the restoration to the
church of the accumulated stipends with
held under the Falk laws. There is no
man of prominence or influence i;i the
Uoman Catholic party to take his place,
and this fact makes all the greater cause
Criminal in Three Generations.
St. Petersburg, March 13. Soci.-ty is
horrified at a remarkable record of crime
which has just come to light, and which
implicates three generations of one fam
ily father, son, and grandson. It appears
that each of these three miscreants mar
ried rich wivosforthe sake of their wealth,
aud then proceeded to poison them. The
grandson was first suspected, and the bod
ies of his two wives were exhumed and
examined, giving conclusive proof of the
fact that he had poisoned tbem. Then
suspicion was aroused in the case of his
father and grandfather, whose wives had
wlsodied undersimilarcircitmstaucei, and
'iieir bodies were exhumed with the same
tlerman Complaints of Oar Meal .
Beklin. March 1-3. The Reichsauieiger,
n replying to tho complain-tn of feha fafl

unsatisfactory. The packing, the paper
claims, is defective, the barrel weak,
their construction bad, and the nsettt too
fat and of inferior quality as oo pared
Tith European meats.

friends, finding that any further attempts
to take the woman from her husband were
useless, decided to abandon the siege.
Condition or Labor in Italy.
Ixsix.v, March U Not less than 300,000
men are out of work in Italy. It is there
fore with considerable apprehension that
the government looks forward to May 1,
the dale for which a general strike and
labor demonstration is proposed by an in
fluential section of the Socialists and labor
agitators. It is believed that the strike
part of the project will fall through, but
there will no doubt be a demonstration of
the unemployed, at least.

THE JEWS AND THE CZARQWITZ.
San Francisco Hebrews Debating Wheth
er to Snub the Czar's Son.
San Fijaxcisco, March 13. The Jewish
community is divided in opinion as to
just what attention should be shown to
the czarowitz, the eldest son of the empe
ror of Russian, who will arrive in this ci
on the China steamer in about two weeks.
Some think that as the representative of
the Russia government, which has passed
laws inflicting great hardships and injus
tice upon the Jews, making exiles and
bankrupts of thousands of them, the
czarowitz should be coldly received by
San Francisco. Others think that he
should lie openly snubbed, while the les
radical !elie- i that he should uj ignored
by the Jewish people, at least.
