Reports from the Corn Fields Sta
tistics of Coinage and Precious Metals.
Washington, Xov. 1". There was no
cessation of- interest in the continnation
of the argument in the Behring sea case
yesterday berore the supreme court of the
United States. When the court was called
to order at noon every seat, both inside
and outside the bar, was occupied by in
terested persons, most of whom re
mained through the day. Ex-Secretary
Bayard sat within the bar and followed
the arguments closely.
Solicitor General Taft took up tlie argument
for tlie I'nitod states at the point where he
left off Monday. He claimed that jurisdiction
o.erthe waters accompanying the grant of
Alaska to this country by lfnssia, and all
waters of Alaska over which the emperor of
Russia had jurisdiction were conveyed by the
grant as the waters of Alaska, and included
ilehrtng sea. He insisted that the question
was a political one, and argued at length to
The Arhltration Negotiations.
The United States, he said, had been asked
to submit the matter to arbitration and had
treed to the proposition and now the other
' side asked for an opinion in advance of this
arbitration, l'erhaps arbitration had not been
agreed on but at least the correspondence on.
the matter was leading up to arbitration.
"Not only that," interjected Attorney Gene
ral Miller, "but it has been agreed on in the
This announcement by the attorney
general, important as it was, did not
create that amount of visible interest that
It would have created if made outside the
supreme court chamber. Very few present
seemed to recognize the significance of
the statement nd Mr. Taft went on with
his argument-as if nothing had happened.
The Attorney General Speaks.
Attorney General Miller then continued the
argument for the government, principally as
be stated "underscoring and emphasising"
what Taft had said, and quoting additional
authority for the government's contention.
He made an ironical allusion to the foreign
policy of Great Britain, adding that the Brit
ish government had not always shown that
touching regard for international law of
which Mr. Carlisle had spoken so highly Mon
day in its international dealings. The ques
tion of boundaries, he said, was not a question
for the courts, because the courts did not
make boundaries. They simply investigated
. into and found what the political department
. had established. Courts could not question
the acts of either of the political branches of
Choate'a Closing Fpeech.
Joseph H. Choate, of New York city, followed
Mr. Miller. He made the closing argument for
the British government. He outlined the
points of -International law and contended that
according to it the Say ward when seized, fifty
nine miles from land, was fifty-six miles out
Bide of all possible jurisdiction of the United
States. It was the duty and power of the su
' preme court to search the proceedings of tUe
Alaska district court to find what justification
It had in finding that the Sayward had taken
Indefinite Extension Suggested.
Continuing he said that the position of the
United States concerning sovereignty over
Behrlng sea did not hold. What warrant was
. therefor the assumption of such executive
power? Why would it not be proper, talcing
the contention of the United as to territorial
jurisdiction a correct, for the president to ex
tend the territorial jurisdiction of this country
a hundred miles out to sea; even more, extend
it from ocean to ocean. The side he repre
sented claimed that the United States had not
even made the claim of national sovereignty
Mare Clausem Disavowed.
Down to the time that JVIr. Bayard ceased to
be secretary of state there had been no une
quivocal policy on this question; no such con
tention as was brought forward by the counsel
for the United States. The state department
had over and over again openly disavowed the
ground on which ontention was made; that
from the IKid paralled east to the American
shore was mare clause m.
With the conclusion of Cboate's argu
ment, the case was closed and the court
Miller's Important Announcement.
The important announcement by At
torney General Miller that the United
States and Great Britain bad agreed to
submit the Behring Sea controversy to
arbitration, was the first intimation that
the correspondence on tbe subject that
has been carried on for some time past
between the two countries, bad at last
resulted in a satisfactory agreement.
Both sides had agreed to submit tbe mat
ter to arbitration if an agreement could
be reached as to what points should be
laid before tbe arbitrators, but there did
ot seem to be much prospect of a unani
mity of opinion on this subject. Attor
ney General Miller refused to talk about
his revelation further than to say that an
agreement as to tbe questions to be sub
mitted for arbitration had been reached
- and only awaited the sanction of" tbe sen
ate before being placed before tbe persons
' that will be selected by Great Britain and
fhs United States to settle the matter.
'. '. . . Tbe Officials Will Not Talk.
Secretary Blaine was not accessible to
reporters last night, and Sir Julian
Panntefote, when approached upon tbe
nature of the questions bearing on the
Bebring sea controversy that bad been
igreed upon by tbe United States and
Oreat 'Britain to be submitted to arbitra
tion, said be preferred to say nothing
whatever in regard to the matter.
A STORY ABOUT BLAINE,

date In '93.
Washington', Nov. 11. General Alger
- Is made responsible for another interest
big story. Gen. Alger told a prominent
government official recently that Mr.
Blaine when be left Washington last

was held just after Mr. Blaine left Wash

Damrosches in New York.
Had to Stay on Chili's Aeennnt.
The leading Republicans who were to
meet Mr. Blaine had asked for a definite
answer fiom the Maine statesman on the
matter ol bis candidacy. Mr. Blaine left
the conference, so General Alger says
promising that be would proceed to Bar
Harbor, remain there until after the fall
elections and then tender his resignation
and allow his friends la use his name.
General Alger said that, bad it not been

"XothinK but death or shattered health

1 Gen. Alger used in cU sing his story, so
this govert ment official says. They were
traveling cn a railroad train when the
story was related and General Alger
drew tbe following illustration: "I con
sider the candidacy of Blaine as reasona

of our journey safe and souud." It is un
necessary to add that General Alger aud

Washington, Xov. 11. In his annual
report Mint Director Ix-ech refers to the
loss of gold suffered by this country dur
ing the last iiscal year. He snys that tbe
net loss by export was1 $67.&4ti,7rj8, while
there was a gain of silver by excess of
imports over exports ara3untingtofi,To2,
86i The low of gold by export was ma
terially larger during the last year than
in auy recent yeftr. The heavy movement
commenced in February of the present
year, and did not end uatil the close of
July. The total atnonnt exported daring
that period fnm the port of Xew York was
t70,2J3,4y. 1; is gratifying to report, says
he, that a return movement of gold is well
nnder way, which has aggregated since
July I, up to Xov. 1, 1S91, 'tsi,580,448, and
which it is believed will continue for some
Pnrchaaes and Prices of Silver.
The total amount of silver purchased
during the lat fiscal year was 50,078,335
standard oun xs. costing t"3,636,924, an
average cost of U 0475 per fine on nee.
The price ot s lver during the last fiscal
year fluctuate I from tu.'Jdi to $1.21 per
fine ounce, a lluet nation greater than in
any previous year ' of which we have
knowledge. 1 he average price for silver
during tbe Jear, based upon London
quotations, ws J1.045 a fine once, and
upon Xew Yo k quotations tl 053 a fine

YIELD OF THE CORN FIELDS.
It Is Estimate! at Thirty-one Itnshels
Per Capita of Population.
Washington, Nov. li. Tbe statistical
returns of tbe department of agriculture
for November make the corn crop one of
the largest in volume, with a rate of
yield slightly tbove tbe average of
twenty-six bushels per acre. Tbe highest
rate of yield, as estimated, appears in
Xew England from thirty-five to forty
bushels per'-cre. In tbe south the ranite
is from eleven in Florida to twenty-five in
Maryland, while in the surplus corn
states the figure are as follows:' Ohio,

Missouri, 19 9; K rasas, Nebraska,

It is evident tint the product will not
be less than 2.000,000.000 bus-hels, or thirty,

Tbe October con litiou of potatoes has
only been equalled once since 18S0 and tbe
average yield according to these prelimi
nary estimates has not been surpassed in
tbe past ten yerrs. It averages Vi 9
bushels per acre. The warm weather in
September dried out the soil and checked
tbe incipient potato rot which was threat

Hlmneir The Great John L Gives Sla
vin a Chance.
New York, Nov. li. A macl.ine wh'cb
1s expected to revolutionize the saw mill
business was exhibited at Green Point, I
I., yesterday. The inventor is Thomas S.
Cranes v. ho, with Dr. E. Bradford, tbe
principal owner, has been at work for five
years perfecting the machine. It cuts
lumber without any waste and there is no
sawdust whatever. In cutting lumber
with a saw there is a great loss which
goes into sawdust. The new invention is
designed to cot thin boards and planks
and will cut In different thicknesses, vary
ing from one thirty-second of an inch to
Cat the Log with a Knife.
No saw is used, the wood being cut vdih
a knife placed on a slide, with another
slide above it, and getting its weight from
a very heavy cross head connected with a
rod. Just in front of the knife is a nar
row roller, which touches the log before
the knife reaches it and steadies it. The
knife gets its horizontal motion
from this connecting rod and it slides
back and forth easily. The difficulty
was to get a vertical or draw motion, iu
order not to injure the fibre of the wood.
It is provided for in this way: .Above the
upper slide is a drum, which is moved by
a wire rope hack and forth as the
cross-bead and the knife move; the drum
is connected by wires with a spring that
bangs directly over the knife, and as the
drum revolves the spring contracts or
lengthens, giving the draw motion.
Great Saving In Lumber.
The log that is leing cut is held fast by
clamps to a feeding machine. This ma
chine and the cutter are both run by the
same engine. Kvery time tbe knife cuts
off a quarter of an inch, or whatever tbe
desired thickness may be, the log is pushed
forward just that quarter of an inch.
When the machine is iu operation it looks
very much like a big knife running in a
groove and cutting cheese. The saving
in lumber that machine will effect vili be
very great. In small lumber, one-quarter
and one-balf of an inch in thickness,
one-quarter of the log is lost in sawdust.
Tnen another eighth is lost in planing,
and the lumberman in preparing his lum
ber for use loses three eighths ufthelo.'.
All the waste will he saved by tbie ma
chine which yesterday operated with en

Makes Five Attempts to Behead Ilim
seU with a Buzz Saw.
New York, Nov. 11. Edward Schnadell,
a workman in Tuttle's planing, mill at
Jamaica, L. L, made five deliberate at
tempts to behead himself Monday by put
ting his bead in front of a buzz saw, but
failed. While obscured from tbe sight of
the operatives be bent bis head to the saw
and had bis neck grazed. He winced
with pain and withdrew." Once again he
moved his head toward the saw. This
time it grazed bis scalp, and be again
drew back with pain. He made tbe at
tempt thrice more, until tbe surface of
his bead and neck were horribly torn!
Succeeded on the Ralls.
Unsuccessful and despera e with fail
nre, he then rushed towar I tbe railroad
tracks at Floral park aud placed himself
in a position to be cut to pieces. It was
here that he was found, unconscious and
bleeding. Schnadell was able to say that
be attempted to kill himself, as people
were after him and trying to kill him.
He was a man of considerable education
and able to speak six different languages.

New York, Nov. 11. William Wiiai
who married Mrs. Frank Leslie, lies dan

their return from a wedding tour. -,Mr.
Wilde's illness dates from last Friday, on
the evening of which day a complimentary
dinner was given to him at the Gilsey
house by W. J. Arkell, of Judge. Since
that time profuse hemorrhages from the
