Which Morgan Declares "Concise."
PAKIS. April 13. The decision of the
Behring sea arbitration committee in ref
erence to the admission of the British com
mittees supplementary report was made
public yesterday. "The court decides not
to admit for the present a document enti
tled a supplementary report of the com
missioners of Great Britain, dated the 81st
of January, l!93, and signed by George
Baden Powell and George X. Dawson,
which report was presented to each of the
arbitrators by agents of Great Britain on
the 2Tth of March, and which contains
either a criticism of the proofs produced in
the paper and documents previously pre
rented or an argument relating to the said

question of the admissibility of any one or
more of the papers joined in the said docu
ment, dated Jan. 31, 1SSM. is reserved for
later examination without prejudice to
the right of the representatives tf the two
parties to discuss the point in question as
well as the contents of said additional pa
per during the course of their pleadings."
Point Against the United States.
Another preliminary point submitted to
the decision of the arbitrators was the mo
tion submitted by the United States on
April 4, asking for the erasure from the
English counter-memoraudom, of certain i
passages put forward as evidence. Th s,
the arbitrators decided to pronouuee upu
at a later stage In the proceedings. The
arbitrators further, in pronouncing as to
the method to be" preserved, declined to
subordinate the" question of jurisdictional
right to that of the point beariug upon the
seal fishiug legulations, and the two ques
tions are to be argued separattly. in aecr--dance
with the course of precedure de
manded by the English lawyers.
Morgan Says This Is "Concise.
Preliminary matters being settled. Sir
Charles Russell said that the right of
speaking first lielonged to the American
counsel, Mr. Carter, who after a compli
ment paid to French hospitality, at once
opened the American case. He spoke all
the balance of the session, and will proba
bly continue for two weeks. Senator Mor
gan, remarked to the correspondent that
Carter was making a conc'se and splendid
argument, which did great credit to the
Poster Interprets the Decision.
United States Agent Foster said in an
interview that the decision of the court of
arbitration refusing for the present to ad
mit the British supplementary report sub
stantially sustains the American interpre
tation of the treaty of arbitration in the
contention that additional evidence cannot
properly be laid before the tribunal. The
decision, Foster added, determines that
the report can rank as argument or criti
cism, but is not pertinent as evidence or
printed argument provided for in the
treaty. He made no comment on the de
cision not to subordinate jurisdictional
rights to seal regulations.

Getting the Dead Out of the Pont-y-Prld
Loxdok, April 13. The latest news from
Ponty-Pridd is to the effect that the fire in
the mine has been virtually quenched. The
fames of gas were, however, still so noxious
as to drive out those who undertook to ex
plore the mine in search of the dead and
for the rescue of those who might be liv
ing. Many of the explorers are suffering
severely from the effects of smoke and the
deadly gases which they encountered.
Further search will be necessary to ascer
tain the full extent of the calamity.
Half a Hundred Corpses.
LATER. The bodies of eleven men have
been found huddled behind a door, as if
they had sought shelter there from a hur
ricane of fiery sparks sweeping by. Other
bodies were found in the return airways,
where the victims were caught while trying
to escape. So far fifty-two bodies have
been recovered. A doctor who has exam
ined the bodies reports that all the victims
died of suffocation. There are no external
injuries on tho bodies.
THE MINE WORKERS' CONVENTION.
An Increase In Wages for All Mine Work
Columbus, O.April 13. The mine work
ers were in secret session all yesterday.
It was decided to leave election of officers
to the last. The question of wages was
the one discussed yesterday, and a resolu
tion was adopted asking for an increase of
5 cents per ton for pick and 4 cents for
machine mining, with increases for load
ing and all other work. Quite a debate
took place as to the right of President
McBride to make political speeches, and
he said that if it was wrong for him it was
also wrong for all other officers. Reports
from the different states were to the effect
that the outlook for miners was encour
aging. ' Legislation for Michigan.

TOLEDO, O., April 13. The Ann Arbor
railway evidently intends following up
Arthur and Sargent and the Brotherhoods of
Locomotive Engineers and Firemen. Yester
day attorneys for the Ann Arbor company
filed a petition in the United States circuit
court in which is stated the parts taken
by P. M. Arthur and F. P. Sargent in the
recent strike, and saying that in conse
quence thereof the plaintiff was delayed
and interfered with in carrying on its
business in the handling and transporta
tion of interstate traffic, and was also
prevented from receiving freight for
transportation from other railway com
panies and the plaintiff says that by rea
son of the said wilfull combination and

suffered damages in the sum of $300,000,
for which it asks judgment against Ar

When the Gate Money Begins to Come
In Bow Uncle Sam Bas Embarrassed
the Management by His Economy
Enough to Open the Fair, Hut Not a
Dollar to Spare Shrewd Financiering
Did the Work Assets on Hand.
CHICAGO, April 13. By quick and clever
financiering the World's fair managers have
avoided temporary bankruptcy in t he last
month before the exposition opens. At a
special meeting of the finance committee
held Tuesday that body found itself con
fronted with a deficit of $50,K, which
sum would be immediately required or the
work must come to a suspension. It was a
critical moment, but the committee was
equal to the emergency.
When the gates of the fair are thrown
ajar two weeks from next Monday a sigh
of relief as big as a balloon will well up
from the exposition finance committee.
Canse of the Embarrassment.
The directory attributes its financial em
barrassment to the government, which
after promising to pay over the $570,000
appropriated by the last session of congress
for awards now refuses to make the
amount available. The directory had de
pended upon this amount to tide the expo
sition over till May 1, but now the finance
committee has been lorced to do some cle
ver financiering to avoid a crisis just when
a crisis would be a calamity. The daily
expenses are enormous at the present time
and will continue so until the fair is
Some Rather Gigantic Figures.
A force of not less than l.",0fK men are
working day and night to complete the
buildings and grounds and install the ex
hibits. It is estimated that the daily ex
penses during April will not fall much
short of $40,000 a day. Iu other words,
more than $1,300,000 will be required to pay
expenses dnring April. April 1, according
to the official report of President Iligin
bothatn, the total cash on hand and avail
able was but $787,608, or about $450,000 less
than the requirements. The directory had,
however, depended upon the government
appropriation of $570,000 and felt easy.
I'nele Sam Didn't Bespoud.
Uncle Sam at the critical moment re
fused to give up the money for that pur
pose, and the directory the first of the pres
ent week found itself on the brink of a
crisis which threatened a suspension of
work. A meeting of the finance committee
was hurriedly called, and temporary means
were adopted to tide the exposition over
the stringency. No member of the directory
will tell what the means were, but that
they were successful is asserted positively
by those who will say anything.
Vouched for by Sceberger.
"You can say that we have got enough
money to carry us through all right,"
Treasurer Sceberger said yesterday, "but
we won't have a dollar to spare. The re
port that the directory hai to give their
personal security for the money needed to
carry us thiough until May 1 is all wrong.
It has required pretty shrewd and close
financiering to accomplish our purposes,
but we have now enough to get through."
Government Broke Its Promise.
"It's all the fault of the government,"
Lyman J. Gage, of the finance committee,
said. "We had been promised the money
appropriated for awards, amounting to
$570,000, but thegovernment broke its prom
ise, and it required some quick work to
get along. The finance committee held a
meeting Tuesday, Bnd we arranged for
money enough to complete the work and
open the fair. Therefore I trust that the
newspapers will say nothing that will in
jure the credit of the exposition."

WAsniXGTox. April 13. An incident at
the White House is thus reported: An Old
World custom was revived on the portico
of the White House Tuesday afternoon, to
the astonishment of a number of New
World natives who witnessed it. Baron
Fava, the Italian minister, was about to
leave the executive mansion when Mrs.
Cleveland, who had just driven up, alighted
from her carriage. . She paused a few mo
ments to converse with the retiring dean
of the diplomatic corps, and as she extended
ber hand to say good afternoon to him
Baron Fava made a courtly bow, and rais
ing her hand.to his lips kissed it in true
cavalier fashion. Mrs. Cleveland seemed
slightly embarrassed, the baron retired
smiling, and two western congressmen who
saw the act almost fell off of the portico
Had Assaulted a Young Girl.
Redwood Falls, Minn., April 13. Twen
ty or thirty men at Mortoa, this county,

He Dreamed a Prophetic Dream.
New York, April 13. William Feather
