In Behringsea.or have a fight on his hands!
That is a summary of the situation in the
senate yesterday at the close of an excu
tlve session nearly four hours long. It
began at about 1 o'clock and ended before
6 Senator Sherman, chairman of the
pimmittee of foreign relations, reported
the arbitration treaty to the senate 'with a
recommendation that it be ratified. He
up ported the report with a speech of
some length, contending that the treaty
should be ratified in order to carry out the
programme entered upon by tha United
State government when it agreeped to re
fer its claims to arbitration.
Resolved to Baek the President.
In addition to the report on the treaty
Sherman reported a resolution, in line
with the argument put forth by President
Harrison in his response to Salisbury's
latest suggestion, stating that having sub
mitted the case to -arbitration the senate
would support the president in any course
he might adopt for protecting the property
and rights involved in the arbitration.
This, it was argued, would commend
itself to the good judgment -of the people
not only of this country, but of all
rqnntries. Sherman was followed by
Morgan and Bray, of the committee, who
agreed with h im that the government
ought to protect its property pending arbi
tration. Very Earnest About the Matter.
Frye, Chandler, Teller, Butler, Tugh,
and others were outspoken against the
treaty, stating, it is said, that unless the
treaty provided for a renewal of the modus
Vivendi they would not vote for it; and if
the treaty failed for that reason they were
willing to abide the consequences. Sins
tors from the several southern states gave
utterance to equally earnest sentiments.
The report that the English squadron had
been ordered to proceed to lit-hring sea was
mentioned and commented on in this con
nection. There was no violence in the dis
cussion at any time, it is said, but h deep
earnestness born of theserious possibilities
that confronted the senate.

Something to Think About.
YASMSG tox, March 25. The latest cor
respondence over the Ilehring sea embrog
lio Is given out for publication. The mes
sage of the president transmitting it to
the senate is a simple statement of what it
refers to, a mere memoranda without sug
gestion of any kind. The first note is one
from I'uuncefote to Blaine, in which the
former holds that the British and Ameri
can commissioners have no right to dis
cuss the question of modus Vivendi with
out special authority from their govern
ments. Then comes the two notes that
are of greatest interest Salisbury's reply
to the president's note of the 8lh inst. and
the president's rejoinder, the latter beiug
the principal part of the correspondence,
both as to quantity and quality.
Lord Salisbury's Propositions.
The text of Salisbury's proposals in re
ply to the president's note of the 8th is
substantially the same as given in these
dispatches yesterday. He says that the
Information in his possession does not
warrant the contention of the United
States that the seals will be annihilated
If jtelaglc killing is permitted. He also
states that the negotiations between Great
Britain and Portugal under arbitration
have taken four years and says the same
in likely to occur in the case of the seals.
He also says that while, if the arbitrators
decide in tavor of the United States, it will
have a claim for loss through free sealing,
if the question is decided against the
United States the sealers who have been
excluded from the sea under the models
will have a claim for damages. He then
proposes the bonding scheme, not ad yes
Tile Reply of the President.
President Harrison lost no time in reply
ing, and begins with a reiteration of the
Statement that free sealing this year will
leavs no seals to be arbitrated upon, call
ing attention to the large number of seal
ers already on their way to the haunts of
the herds, which he characterizes as a
"crime against nature," as the government
expects to show that female seals consti
tute the bulk of the catch of the sealers.
The reply is written by Mr. Wharton, who
ayB: "That -in view of" this serious aud
confident contention) of this government
his lordship should assume that anot her
year's suspension of ' such sealing is not
necessary 'to prevent nn undue diminution
Of the seal herds,' and should insist that
pending an arbitration it shall go on, pre
cisely as if no arbitration had been agreed
upon, is as surprising as it is disappoint
ing. A Hint That Arbitration May Fall.
"If her majesty's government so little
respects the claims aud contentions of this
government as to be unwilling to forbear
for s single seas.on to disregard them, the
president cannot understand why Lord
balisbury should have proposed and
agreed to give to those claims the dignity
ao stndtnj whica a reference to ahiirh
THINGS NCT TO BE FORGOTTEN.
Neither Party at Liberty to Insist t pan
Its Extreme Claim.
"For it mils', not be forgotten that if
her majesty's government proceeds dur
ing this sealing season upon the basis of
its contention as to the rights of the
Canadian sealers, no choice is left to this
government bet to proceed upon the basis
of its confident contention that pelaiiic
sealing in the Ilehring sea is an infraction
of its jurisdiction ami property rights.
His lordship v ill hardly fail to see this.
Herein, in the opinion of the president,
consists the gravity of the present situa
tion, and he is not willing to he found in
any degree rest onsible for the results that
may follow the insistence by either gov
ernment during this season upon the ex
treme rights cUinied by it.
A Question of Honor Involved.
"If his lords ip shall adhere to his re
fusal to unite with us in prompt and ef
fective measures to stop pelagic sealing
and shall insist upon free sealing foi
British subject, the question as it affects
this government is no longer one of pe
cuniary loss or frain, but one of honor and
self-respect. This government, notwith
standing the fait that its right to take
seals upon the Prybilof islands is undis
puted and wholly uninvolved in the arbitra
tion, has proposed to take no profit from
the island catch, but to limit the taking
of seals to the natives of those islands, and
it can not consent that, with indemnity oi
without, the c ontested rights of the
British subjects to catch seals in tha
Behring sea sha:i be exercised pending the
Hard to Ileiieve His Lordship Serious.
"The president finds it difficult to believe
that Lord Salisbury is serious in proposing
that his govern nent shall tade separate
bonds from the owners of 100 Canadian
sealing vessels to indemnify it for the in
jury they may severally inflict upon out
jurisdiction or property, and must decline
to discuss a suggestion which only his re
spect for Ixird Salisbury and his belief that
his lordship has .i due appreciation of the
gravity of this discussion enable him tu
treat with seriousness. The treaty
gives the arbitra ors no powers to adjudge
any damages, and the proposition would
be without risk to the sealers and of no
value to us."
Was Salisbury 's Own Point.
Mr. Wharton s.iys that this government
cannot consent to have its rights destroy
ed however adequate the security offered,
nor see our prt perty converted into a
claim for damages, especially as such a
claim cannot be determined by the arbi
trators without reformation of the treat y
for his lordship n ust remember "that Ju
lias already currit d his jMiiiit in the treaty
that the arbitrators shall have no jurisdic
tion to award a ly damages." As to the
proposition that the sealers excluded will
have claims the president does not s;-e
how sealers of either nation can supprot
such a claim grow ing out of trade restric
tions, promotive i f public good anil inter
CORRECTS A PATENT ERROR,
And Makes a Few Comments That Are
Mr. Wharton tl.en proceeds: "The sug
gestion that the conclusions of the board
of arbitration may not be reached and an
nounced in time to govern the conduct of
the parties during the season of 1S03, is, I
think, fully provided against by the treaty
itself. His lordship is mistaken as to the
time that hns lapsed since the signing of
the Delagoa bay a reenient with Portugal.
It is not four years old, but less than one,
the date of signing being June 13, 1891. If
the present treaty is promptly ratified and
exchanged our mu -uul interest would be
a simple guarantee against delay. The
president has found no obstacle in the way
of such consummi tion except the belief
now unfortunately very prevalent here
that Britain's contentious largely defeat
the object of the treaty.
I'ncle Sam's Ultimatum.
"The modus of la it year is the least that
this government cm occept. In reason,
the restraints after a treaty of arbitration
should be more absolute, not less. The
president does not desire to protract this
discussion, and baVlng now in the most
friendly spirit submitted the considera
tions which support the just demand of
this government tint the property which
is the subject of an agreed arbitration
shall not be subject jd to spoliation pend
ing the arbitration, he expresses the
hope that Lord Salisbury will give a
prompt and friendly assent to renew the
The Seals Will lie Protected.
"The president will hear with regret that,
her majesty's government continues to
assert a right to d'?al with this subject
precisely as if no provision had been made
for a settlement of the dispute, and in that
event this govern i lent, as has already
been pointed out, wi 11 be compelled to deal
with the subject uj on the same basis and
to use every means in its power to protect
from destruction or nerious injury property
and jurisdictional rights which it has long
claimed and enjoyed."

announces that he has $1,000,0003 cash to
pay for real estate in large or small quant

that it marks the closing of a speculat ive
campaign, which is by far the most re
markable the Chicago Board of Trade has
ever seen. The campaign began in Aug
ust of last year, just after the traders on

Relieved May Wheat Would lie Low.
Pardridge had pinned his faith to the
belief that May wheat would sell at 80
cents in Chicago, and the fact that it sold
last August at f MS,'-; only made the differ

day May wheat sold at 80, and Pardridge
practically finished the deal which he had
been leisurely closing up all the way dow n
from 85 cents.

When asked for an approximate idea of
his winnings Air. Pardridge said. "I do
not care to talk aboat them. I have made
fcll the money which I think any man
should make in. the wheat market, and
shall never trade heavily again. 1 have
the money now and it would be foolish to
risk losing it all again. Of course I shall

Ran a Bio; Deal for Months.
It is estimated that Pardridge at one
time had a line of nearly 10,000,000 bushels.
His line for months at a time was certainly
over 5,000,0p0. While Hutchinson un
doubtedly had s larger line than this on
one or two occasions there was no time In
all his career that he kept as large a deal
as this open for months at a time, and he
certainly never scored as great a success.

RIOTOUS ENGLISH MINERS.
They Kven Wage War on the Tress for
Lumiox, March 25. The Durham miners
are quite out of their leaders' hands and
scenes of violence are of daily occurrence
at all the idle pits. The men are waging a
deliberate war upon the press, because the
papers refuse to support them in their de
mands. The reporters do not dare to at
tend the meeting of the strikers, of which
there are scores held daily. Serious dis
orders in many districts come to light
slowly, not having been reported at the
time of their occurrence for the reason
Scribes Disguised as Pitmen.
The New Castle Chronicle has shown
considerable enterprise in making arrange
ments to keep its readers informed of the
actual stute of affairs. Finding that its
reporters could not without risking their
lives go openly to the meetings and among
the strikers, the managers of the paper
caused the reporters to lie disguised as pit
men.and in this way have been able to pub
lish accurate statements- of the progress of
the movement from day to day. Seven
houses at the Littleham colliery were
wrecked by the disorderly strikers Wednes
day. An Onirer Almost Killed.
Officer Shields' house was partially de
molished and his wife was injured by
stones that were thrown. Several houses
were also wrecked . at the Oldboyue col
liery. At Brandon Officer Muuu was al
most killed while endeavoring to preserve
order. The county police have been rein
forced and are forming posts, connected
by telephone, making a network through
out the disturbed district, so that a large
body of officers can be summoned to any
desired spot on very short notice.
The Canadian Pacific Strike.
MoxTUKAL, March 25. Vice President
Sluiughnessy, of the Canadian Pacific rail
way, made the following statement as to
the situation of the strike up to noon yes
terday: "Everything is quiet and running
smoothly. The passenger trains have
made up time and are now all in motion
according to the schedule. The freight
that has been accumulating during the
past few days is going forward and all
dead freight is being cared for. I antici

Washington, March 25. The morning
hour in the senate was taken up with the
introduction of bills relative to the postal
