Some Inquiries of the Counsel A Wide J
IMrergenre ot Position as to What is the
Iith of the Case British Editorial Com
ment on Gladstone's Latest Speech
Labor Riot at Hall.
Paris, April a James C. Carter, coun
sel for the United States, continued before
the Behring sea court of arbitration yester
day bis reply to Sir Charles Russell's plea
for the admission to evidence of the British
supplementary report of the Behring sea
rommission. The contention of the coun
sel for Great Britain, he said, had been
that the question of right in the Behring
tea mu.st be settled before the matter of
regulations. The contention of the United
States from the beginning of the dispute,
however, had concerned the regulations.
The United States had held also that for
the settlement of the property claim ad
vanced by them evidence on seal life in
the Bt-hring sea was necessary. Such evi
dence was contained in the original re
ports of the Behring sea commission and
therefore the reports formed an indispens
able part of the case and counter case.
Ground f th English Contention.
As for the supplementary report, it bad
not appeared in the matter already referred
to, and it ought therefore to be excluded
from the eviuence. Great Britain had
claimed the power under article seven of
the arbitration to include the supplemen
tary report in the evidence. This article
declared that if it be decided that the con
currence of Great Britain be necessary to
establish regulations the report of the joint
commission shall be laid before the trib
unal, with such otber evidence as either
government may submit. This Great
Britain had construed as a right to intro
duce evidence as to the regulations, evi n
after the case and counter case had been
A Crncial Question at Issue.
Article nine provided that the reports
shall not be made public until after being
submitted to the arbitrators.or until it shall
be seen that the contingency of their be
ing used by the arbitrators cannot arise. It
was thus made obvious that the question at
issue was a crncial one tfor the arbitration.
If the contention of Great Britain was sus
tained, it mnst follow that the question of
right was to le decided first.nnd the quest ion
of regulation, which the United States re
garded as of prime importance, must be re
legated to second place. Carter then read
at length from Sir Julian Pauncefote's
correspondece in 1890, to prove that the
question of regulation was regarded as one
at the first consideration.
De Courcel Thinks It Important.
Baron de Conrcel asked whether or not
Russia was a party to the negotiations ut
Carter I do not know, but I consider
the point unimportant.
Sir Charles Russell Communications
with other pp-vers were held in view. I be
lieve. It was intended at first to ask for
their active participation in the conven
tion. Baron de Courcel I ask, because if Rus
sia was communicated with more weight
would attach to the negotiations. Oilier
wise the draft of the agreement would be
merely an informal document continuing a
private diplomatic conversation. My ques
tion may appear pedantic, but diplomatic
training leads me to attach importance to
snch matters. Communications with
third powers add weight to snch drafts.
Carter Explains the Scheme.
Phelps This may be an important ques
tion later on; meantime, it is of secondary
Baron de Courcel Lord Hannen British
arbitrator directs my attention to a dis
patch from Sir Julian Pauncefote in which
he refers to communications from Russia,
Phelps This is a matter of indifference.
Carter The scheme was this:' Experts
were appointed to draw tip regulations for
seal fisheries; if they failed to agree, then
there was to be arbitration. No question of
right or jurisdiction was raised.
In replying to Carter, Russell admitted
that Sir Julian Pauncefote's dispatches, as
far as mentioned, were confined to ques
tions of regulation. This, he said, was due
to the fact that the intention then was to
consult Russia and otber powers concern
ing the regulation of the seal fisheries.
De Couroell Asks for Proof.
If the correspondence was further con
sulted, however, it would be found that
separate negotiations had proceeded
simultaneously on questions of right and
damages for seizure. Baron de Courcell
aaked Russell to prod nee proof "of this
statement, and Sir Charles quoted from
several dispatches that passed between Sir
Julian Pauncefote and Lord Salisbury in
May 1880, concerning rights and damages.
Since then, lie added,: the question of re
gulation bad disappeared as a separate
subject of consideration, and all question
had been handled , together in the sub
sequent negotiations. The court adjourned
until Tuesday when .it will hold a secret
session. On Wednesday the proceedings
will again be open to the public.
DEPENDS ON THEIR POLITICS
As to Hrv. English Editors Take Glad
" stone's Speech.
London, April 6. The opinions of the
English press regarding Gladstone's home
role speech Thursday vary according to
the political basis of the writers, natur
ally. The Westminster Gazette says that
Gladstone's speech was especially fine be
cause, unlike most orators, he is not de
pendent upon the Biae of the audience for
his enthusiasm. The Times says: "It was
impossible to follow Mr. Gladstone through
the mazes of fallacious reasoning and in
accurate history," .
Tbaclsowft rU "all Gaavtt.
The Daily News says: "The enemies of
Trjah nationalism do not realise how far
tn'eir principles carry tnem and are startled
when the result of their own doctrines is
suddenly laid before them."
The Pall Mall Gazette calls Gladstone's
arguments those of fear, saying: "It is as
if criticism did not exist for him; as if no
whispers of what men were saying reach
ed him in his seclusion."
Raised a Commotion on Chance.
LlVKKPooL, April a Lord Randolph
Churchill, addressing the Liverpool cham
ber of commerce yesterday, alluded to the
proposed changes" in the constitution
which would probably affect the credit
and stability of business in cities like Liv
erpool. He also alluded to Gladstone's at
tack on properties and classes. Neville, M.
P., protested against the introduction of
politics and charged Lord Randolph with
villitying Gladstone. A scene of disturb
ance ensued, and Neville was called upon
to withdraw the word villify and substi

not do the dock work nobody else should.

St. Petersburg, April 8. Count Bub

leaves the members of each system of

within the provisions of the plan and under
the approval of their executive officers. In
the matter of federation it admits federa

A United States Judge Declares Inciters
to Violence Conspirators.
Wheeling, W. Va., April a In the
federal court yesterday Judge Jackson, in
charging a jury, rendered an opinion re
garding strikes and boycotts. The case
was that of obstructing the mails by inter
fering with the running of the electric
street cars since the strike now in progress
began. The cars run from Benwood, West
Virginia to Martins Ferry, Ohio, and carry
the mails, and these were the cars which
have been attacked by mobs. In this par
ieular case the prisoners were boys.
Ordered an Investigation.
Judge Jackson held that the men who
incited the boys were conspirators, and di
rected an investigation of the matter.
Judge Jackson held that employes had the
undoubted right to q lit their employment
at will, but interference with employers'
business or attempt to forcibly prevent
others from taking their places was con
spiracy and such acts would not be allow
ed by law.

Averted Near Chicago.

cape from wholesale gas asphyxiation

moment was turned on again and rapidly
filled rooms where gas jets had been left
burning. Several citizens detected the es
caping gas almost simultaneously and
started out to warn their neighbors of their
impending danger. Many persons had left
all-night lights, and the calls of the relief
committee were none too soon. Mrs.
Agnes Ross, an invalid who lives at 2510

hours. A servant girl in another house
was also rendered unconscious, but wes
finally resuscitated. As far as can be
