ruints from tlie Latest Cnrrespon.lenrp
Sent to 4'iii..
The above treaty was sent to the senate
Tuesday. Ye -tenlay the president sent in a
long roll of correspondence which has been
going on over the question of a moiltis Vi
vendi for this year. The feature of the
whole matte is a disagreement on the
part of the seal commissioners mentioned
. .,. ..., .,. ., , ,
in vol- uviii; s in m lie ... r mere is any
liwcssity for i. close season this year. The
United platen commissioners, it would
seem, are certain that if the sealers are
allowed in Hchrinsj sea there will be
nothing toarb trate by the time the .sca-scn
Other Side of the Case.
On the othet hand the Uritisb commis
sioners, so it would appear, are just as
certain that there are so many seals that
the sealers ma; be permitted ti o in for
this year without any dancer of atmihi
lnting the fu--lie,irers. Klaine calls at
tention, to the 'act that more vessels have
started anil ar tireparing to start from
grounds than ever before. Salisbury pro
posed to stop p. hiyic Killing inside a thirty-mile
radius from the islands. but Iilaine
says that won't do localise it would be iai-
to delit.e such a line.
A Warfare of Words.
There lias beeti a good deal of recrimina
tion in the correspondence. IS'.aine says
that Salisbury 1 as In-en tardy, and Salis
bury denies this, and says it is Iilaine. It
is a verlial sparring match to a great ex
tent, but the upshot is that the United
States insists n a modus Vivendi this
year and ( Jreat liritain declines to consi.l-
neeessar . Mlisbury says that the
!hlI;,1, on",11Hlly proposed
by 1lnln?. anJ .ilmne says it was only a
tentative propos.il. and both governments
greed that it was iiniiracticalile. The

ltig Talk by the Authorities of Punish
lug the Mob Armed Men Everywheie.
Mkmpius, March 10. There were abund
ant indications of mob law in this city for
the pa-st few days, but tlie authorities
didn't see them apparently, ami seventy
live men had no dilliculty in getting inside
the jail Tuesday night, taking three of the
iie.Toes confined there for the shooting
ailray Satin day night, rushing thim
tU-'iii to a quiet spot and shooting them to
death, and this in a city of Srt.Ooo inhabi
tants. The result is that the relations be
t'tn the negro population and whilrs
are "strained," The city is full of rumors
that the negroes are going to take dread
ful revenge for the crime committed I y
the mob and a strong fforcc of armed nu n
is guarding points where it is supposed
turbulence may break out.
Cause of ibe Trouble Saturday.
Calvin McDowell, a negro who keeps a
gr.K-ery and barroom at the corner of .i;s
B saippi and Walker avenues, was up on
S ilu:day before Judge Dullose on a charge
o assault and battery. Having been re
leased on bail he returned to Lis place of
b isine-s and, gathering his friends, he
t ild them that tlie whites were getting
r a.ly to n o'i t). em. When McDowell was
before him Judge DuHose said that he
iu-'etidid to purify the district in which
.McDowell ai.d his supporters flourished,
and this is supposed to have given McDow
ell the idea that an organized assault was
to be made upon the negroes.
A Wile Man at the Iloitom.
So when McDowell found Saturday
night that Lis house was surrounded by
niim-d men, he thought the "purilicatiou"
was about to commence. Hence the shoot
ing. At the bottom of all the trouble was
the rivalry between McDowell and a white
man who keeps a barroom near McDow
ell's. The latter got all the negro trade,
and this was the beginning of the case
against McDowell, lie, Tom Moss, and
Will Stewart were the victims of the mob.
Who the lynchers were will probably never
be found out. Judge Du Hose announces
that he will find them ail and sentence
them to the limit of the law. Ceneral Pe
ters, the state's attorney, declares his de
termination to follow them to the end.
They Are "Talking in Their Huts."
Hut, after the oilicers have exhausted
every expedient and followed every t U w

How the Negroes Iel.
The negroes do not pretend to protect
some of the negroes lynched. The lietter

There are no signs of peace now. lilack
mobs are on every ' street conn r.

Krery white man in the vicinity ot "The

rounded by l"vl men. They were
sent out there by Judge Dttbose and
President Clapp. The negroes show great
determination in the matter and the result
cannot lie easily conjectured.

with a terrible death Wednesday because
he refused to shoot hisdosr, which gave in-ilir-iuions

Tuesday he accidentally allowed, some
froth from tlie raging brute's month to
