Pahis, April 0. Before the arbitration
court in the Behring ma case yesterday
Phelps, counsel for the United States, con
tinued his argument to show that the re
port of the Behrins? sea British com
mission should not be accepted as evi
dence by the board, as it had been com
pleted in time to le properly offered by
Great Britain. In support of this conten
tion f-outisel iuoted the correspondeiiCe be
tween ice Kngiish and American foreign
offices, and cited certain passages of Jtlie
treaty. I'helps' address was interrupted
several times by an exchange of criticisms
between the counsel for the powers. "If I
had been guiding the policy of the United
States," said Phelps, "w hen Great Britain
presented the counter c;ise at the last min
ute, I would then and there have refused
to proceed with the arbitration. Great
Britain's conduct was not only unjust, but
Jeeply humiliating for the United States."
Something Fhelp Didn't Know.
Sir Richard Webster interposed the re
mark that Great Britain bad announced
',u her couuter-case the production at a
future date of the Bchring sea commission
Phelps, continuing, said that he bad not
been aware of this. Tne whole report, he
uaid, was untrustworthy, for although
preliminary investigation bad been made
conjointly by the British and the Ameri
can commissioners the reports had been
neither answered nor commented upon by
the United States. The British report
contained moreover a large amount of
hearsay arguments, conjectures and other
matters quite unsuitable as evidence be
fore the court.
Surprised at I'helys' Warmth.
Sir Charles Russet, in his reply, said that
be had not expected such a discussion of the
legal character of the' evidence as that in
troduced by Phelps. He felt quite unpre
pared for this extraordinary beat on the
part of the opposing counsel. He was ex
tremely surprised that Great Britain
should be charged with injustice in her
conduct of the proceedings preliminary to
the meeting of the court. There was no
intention on the part of Great Britain to
use the report of the liehring sea commis
sion as bearing upon the question of right
before the court.
Broader Than a Matter of Seals.
The counsel for the United States had at
tempted throughout the sittings of the
tribunal to force this matter upon the com
missioners as if only one question was be
fore them. There were, however, other
questions than those of right to be settled.
The tribunal was dealing with the affairs
of an open sea, in which there were involved
other rights than those of Great Britain
and the United States namely, the rights
of mankind. In the matter of Great Brit
ain's and America's rights the arbitrators
must act strictly as judges; in the matter
of the rights of mankind they must acquit
themselves as just men.
Russell then justified the production of
the report of the Bearing sea commission,
arguing from the terms of the arbitration
treaty between the United States and
Great Britain. If, he said, the sole object
of the report was to assist the tribunal to
gain information as to the regulation of
the seal fisheries and to increase its knowl
edge of the practical matters at issue, the
report then must be admitted to evidence
under the articles governing the procedure
of the court of arbitration. Kussell then
read the article in question and the court
LONDON PRESS CRITICISM.
The Editors Evidently Io Not Approve
of Counsel Phelps.
London, April 6. The Daily Chronicle
says: "The proceedings in the Behring sea
court of arbitration do not promise well
for an amicable solution of the question at
issue. It is not, we imagine, in the power
of the American counsel to render the arbi
tration abortive, but it seems only too
clear that Mr. Phelps is disposed' to give a
narrow, partisan twist to the conduct of
his case, and that he would not stop short
at rendering the whole proceedings nuga
tory if he could not be sure of issuing from
them on the winning side. If the Wash
ington government was aware that he held
such strongly biased opinions it is a pity
that they did not entrust the case to a law-
. jer of less preconceived views."
Log-io of Knssel's Argument.
The Paris correspondent of The Daily
News says: "In view of the great issues
involved, Mr. Phelps seemed to attach un
due importance to questions of mere pro
ceedore and to ignore the high internation
al bearing of the case. Unquestionably he
has great legal acumen. Sir Charles Kus
sel did not say so in as many words, nor
did be even suggest it, yet the inevitable
logic of his Argument forced the conclusion
upon the bearer's mind that the Baltic or
the Mediterranean or the Red or the Black
' sea might each, according to the American
theory, become as close as the Behring sets."
SAVED BY A FAITHFUL DOG.
He Rescues a Woman From the Assault of
LEED6, April & Mrs. Burrill, the cook
of the "Boarshead" tavern, was attacked
by a man of the name of Bothery, who was
in love with her and who entrapped her in
a lonely room. He then . drew a razor and
attempted to cut her throat, exclaiming
that be was tired of her carryings-on with
other men. Mrs. Burrill straggled very
bard to release herself. Then suddenly a
black: Oog wblcn bad been tying asleep
under the couch sprang upon Rothery and
caught him by the coat sleeve. This com
pelled him to make an attempt to shake
the animal off and while doing so .be re
laxed his hold upon the woman, who
called for help.
The Miscreant Commits Suicide.
Rothery succeeded in releasing himself
from the dog and once more rushed at the
woman, razor in hand. At the moment he
was about to strike her the dog leaped be
tween the man and the woman and seized
the fellow by the throat. Meanwhile U;e
noise cf the battle had been heard outsi-'e
and the landlady of the place opened the
door aud drugged Mrs. 1 Jul rill from t-ie
room, closing the door behiud her and
thus shutting in the man with the dog.
When the police broke into the room a TeUr
minutes later they found Rothery on the
floor with his throat cut and dying. The
dog was lying on the villain's chest watch

TRIPLE AND DEVILISH MURDER.
Forced Marriage and Attack on the Wed
ding Party A Kentucky Item.
Morgaxfield, Ky., April 6. Miss Ab
bie Oliver, of Sturgis, Union county, Ky.,
as is alleged, was betrayed by Henry I) -l.iney,
a young drug clerk, about eight
months ago.' Delaney denied the charge,
and refused to marry the girt. At 9 o'clock
Tuesday nif-bt the girl's mother entered
Delauey's place of business, and at the
point of a pistol compelled him to go with
her to a carriage outside in which her bus
band and daughter were seated. The quar
tette drove rapidly to Morganfield, fifteen
miles distant, and at It o'clock yesterday
morning a license was procured and De
laney forced to marry the girl.
Belaney Joins the Assailants.
The party started home in the carriage,
but when they had driven about four miles
four men surrounded the vehicle and began
firing into it. The newly-wedded woman
was shot through the heml and died soon
afterward. It was discovered that she v is
about to give birth to a child. Her father
was shot through the face and in the
right arm. At the first shot Delaney
jumped from the carriage and joined the
attacking party. Mrs. Oliver recognized
the assailants and warrants for their arret
have been issued.
Oliver Will Also Die.
The indications are that Mr. Oliver will
not live through the night. The physi
cians say that bis injuries are necessarily
fatal. Late yesterday afternoon George
Henry and Frank Holt were arrested by
the sheriff of Union county and identified
by Mrs Oliver. Seven others were r o
arrested, but not being recognized were
released. A brother of Henry is still at
large. The Henry boys are cousins of the
unwilling bridegroom. Delaney is of a
most respectable family, but the sympathy
of the community is largely with the Oli

CHICAGO. April 6. The Republicans
Tuesday elected a majority of the city
council, which stands: Republicans, 38;
Democrats, 27; Independent Democrats, 3.
Mayor-elect Harrison said the Republican
majority would be kept in check, as be
would personally preside, to which the Re

will work both ways, as they will be on
hand themselves. Republicans carried
Cicero, Jefferson and Hyde Park. T jy

there being elected.

Chairmau Taylor, of. the Lake Shore
local grievance committee, said yesterday:
"This strike is still ou ami will not be call
ed off. We can stick it out for sixty days
more, and then, if there is no change, we
will adopt another course. It has not yet
been shown whether this strike is legal or
not by the court, and we will wait for the
decision of the supreme court. We may
also bring suit for 40,000, which is a rough
estimate of the amount due us. That
amount represents the difference between
the arbitrators' scale which Mr. Ashley
agreed to pay us two years ago and the
rate he really did pay us.
Snys the Road Is Unsafe.
'.Mr. Ashley has chosen to bring this
matter into the courts, and I think we can
make it interesting for him. Ashley needs
our men more than they need the posi
tions. I know positively that he is not
running his road (as he claims) 50 per cent,
better than he ever did before. The road is
not safe to run over, as it is now spoiled.
Of course it is hard to make people believe
this when I say it, as thev claim I am sore
and prejudiced. The Ashleys will be the
losers in the long run. Xone of the men
had gone back, nor will they do so. We
are drawing almost an equivalent to our
salaries, and although the clause in our
brotherhood stipulates that we only receive
pay for one month there is an amendment
to it of which the public is ignorant. That
will be easy, as we have a good cause."

Cutters from issuing boycott circulars or
in any way injuring the trade of the man
ufacturers was dissolved yesterday by
Judge Barrett, a ruling which was a vic
tory for the Garment Workers, on the
ground that the form of the action was
fatal. He said there was no common or
joint interest that would justify the man
ufacturers in joining in one suit- If they
had any standing in court at all they
would have to bring individual actions.
Lawyer Johnson said he would at once
begin individual actions.
