Paris, Aug. 16 Tbe Bebrin i sea arbi
tration commission has completed its
wort and the two nations most interested
will now proceed to extract such comfort
from the dec-is on as is possible It may
be said, however, that in all the points
inolving international right the United
Stiles hns lost, while that couutry has
gained a certain protection for her seals.
The meeting of the arbitrators at which
the decsion was "hand d down" was
held .t 9 a. m. yesterday and the repre
sentatives of each government were
banded a copy of tLe Angina'. Then twe
session terminated with mutual expres

Decision on the Five Points.
After a preamble stating t he case that was
submitted for decision, the full text of the
decision on the five points is as follows:
"We decide and determine as to tbe five
points mentioned in article 6, as to which
our award is to embrace a distinct decis
ion upon each of them: As to the first of
said five points we. Baron de Courcel,
JohnM. Harlan, Lord Kannen. Sir John
S. D. Thompson, Marquis Emilio Visconti
Venosta and Gregoro W. W. Gram, being
a nijority of said arbitrators, do decide as
follows: By the ukase of 1S21 Russia
claimed jurisdiction in the sea now known
as Behring sea to the extent of 10) Italian
miles from the coasts and islands belong
ing to her; but in the course of the nego
tiat.ons vlie:i led to he conclusion of the
treaty in 124 with the United States and
the treaty of 1K2T with Great Britain
Russia admitted that her jurisdiction in
said sea should be restricted so as to
reach a cannon shot frorr. shore. It ap
pears tlyit from that time up to the time
ot the cession of Al:ika to the United
States Russia never asserted in fact or ex
ercised any exclusive jurisdiction in Beh
ring fea or any exclusive rights to the seal
fisheries there bevond the ordinary limit
of territorial waters.
Never Recognized by Knjland.
"A ttrthe second of the five points, we,
Baaon Decmrcel, John M. Harlan, Lord
Hannen, fciir John S. D. Thouipo, Mar
quis Emilio Visconti-Venosta and Gregoro
W. W. Grain, being a majority of said ar
bitrators, decide and determiu- that Great
Britain did not reeognize or concede any
claim npon the part of Russia to exclusive
jurisdiction as to the seal fisheries in
Behring sea outside the ordinary territori
"As to the - third ' point, as to so. much
thereof as rulxes us to decide whether
the body of water now known as Behriug
sea was included in the phrase "Pacific
Ocean" as used in the treaty of 1S23 be
tween Great. Britain and Russia, we unan
znously decide to determine that the body
of wator now known as Behring sea was
included in the phrase "Pacific Oceau" as
used in said trenty.
No Right of Seal Protection.
"On the fourth point we decide and de
termine that all the rights of Russia to
Jurisdiction and to the seal fisheries passed
to the United States limited by tbe cession.
"On the fifth point we decide and deter
mine that the United States have 'no right
to tu protection of or property in the seals
frequenting the islands of toe United
States In Behring sea when found outside
the ordinary three-mile limit." This de
cision-was by Baron de Courcel, Lord Han-

Then, having declared that the United
States had no rights in the seals any more
than in any other wild animal, when off
its own territory, the arbitrators pro
ceeded in fiie following regulations to
protect seal life in a manner that will not
be pleasing to the seal huuters.
"And, whereas, the aforesaid determine
tion of the foregoing questions as to the
executive jurisdiction of the United States
leaves the subject in such a position that
the concurrence of Great Britain is neces
eary to the establishment of regulations
for the proper protection and preservation
of fur seals habitually resorting to the
Behring sea, we. Baron Be Courcel, Lord
Hannan, Marquis Emilio Visconti-Venosta
and Gregoro . W . Gram, being a majori
ty of the arbitrators assent to the whole
nine articles of the regulations as neces
sary outside of the jurisdiction limits of
the resiiective governments, and that they
should extend over the waters hereinafter
Article 1. The tinted States and Great
Britain 6hall forbid their citizens and subjects
respectively to kill, capture or pursue at any
time or in any manner whatever the auimah
ct mmonly called fur seals, within a zone of
sixty miles around the Pribyloff islands, iu"
elusive of the territorial waters, eight miles
being geographical miles, sixty to a decree of
Art. 2. The two governments shall forbid
their citizens and subjects to kill, capture or
pursue in any manner whatever, during a
season extending in each year from May 1 to
July in inclusive, fur seals on the high seas.
that part of the Pacific ocean inclusive of
Behring sea, situated north of the 35th degree
ot north latitude, or eastward of the 180th d
gree of longitude from Greenwich, until it
strikes the water boundary described in
Article 1 of the treaty of ls7 between the
United States and Russia, following that hue
up to Bearing straits.
Art. 3. During the period of time in the mat
ers in which fur sealing is allowed only sailing
vessels shall be permitted to carry on or take
part in fur tealing operations They will how
ever, be at liberty to avail themselves of tba
nw of snc.li anees or undecked boats propelled
by J auniea, ors,"or saus at are in common use
as fishing boats.
Art. 4. Each sailing vessel authorized to

government. Koch -vessel so employed shall be,

each of the two governments to each other at
the end of e-u-h season.
Art. 6. The use of nete, firearms or ex
plosives is forbidden in fur sealing. This
restriction shall not apply to shotguns when
such are used in fishing outside of Behring
sea during the season when such may lawfully
be carried on.
Art. 7. The two governments shall take
measures to control the fitness of the men au
thorized to engage in sealing. These men shall
lave loen proved fit to handle with sufficient
skill the weapons by which seal fishing is car
Art. 8. The preceding regulationsshall not
apply to In ians dwelling on the coast of the
territories of the United States or Great
Britain carrying on fur sealing in canoes or
undecked boats not transported by or used in
connection with other vessels and propelled
wholly by paddles, oars or sails and manned
by no more than five persons in the way hith
erto practiced by the Indians, provided that
such Indians are not employed by other per
sons, and provided that when so hunting in
canoes or undecked lioats the Indians shall not
hunt fur seals outside the territorial waters
under contract to deliver seals to anybody.
This exemption is not to be construed to affect
the municipal law of either country, nor shn'.l
it extend to the waters of Behring sea or the
waters around the Aleutian islands. Nothing
herein contained is intended to interfere with
the employment of Indians as hunters or oth
erwisi in connection with sealing vessels as
Art. 0. Tbe concurrent regulations hereby
determined with a view to the protection and
preservation of the fur seals shall remain in
force until they have boon wholly or in part
abolished or modified by a common agreement
between the United States and Great Britain.
S;dd concurrent regulation siiall lie submitted
every five years for examination in order that
both governments may consider whether, in
the light of past experience, there is necessity
to make any modification therein.
THE MATTER OF DAMAGES.
One Class Already Provided for A Special
finding in Another.
la accordarce with article 5 of the con
vention for the renewal of the modus Vi
vendi the decision of the arbitrators will
conielthe United States to make com
pensation to 'rear Britain (for the use -of
her subiect.s for abstaining from the cap
ture of seals in Behring sea during the
Ien!eiicy of the arbitration. This article
deals only w ith damages for the short pe
riod during which the arbitration pro
ceedings were U-iug conducted, and does
not touch the question of damages prior
to that time.
Article VIII of the treaty proper states
that the high contracting parties find
themselves nnable to agree upon a refer
ence which shall include the question of
the liability of each for the injuries alleged
to have leen sustained by the other, and
accordingly t hey agree "that either may
submit to the arbitrators any question of
fact involved in said claims and ask for a
finding thereon, ti.e question of the liabili
ty of either government upon the facts
found to be tne subject of further negotia
tion." Qa sLiun&.d fact, permitted by Article
VIII, were submitted to the tribunal and
the arbitrators have handed down a special
finding on them with reference to the
seizure of British vessels in Behring sea
in ISs'T and 1SS9. Further information is
awaled as to the nature of this finding,
which will probably afford a clue to tbe
measure of damages likely to be assessed
against the Uuited States.
OUR MINISTER TO HAWAII.
He Arrives at 'Frisco and makes a "Few
Sax Fuascisco, Aug. 10. United State
Minister Blount, who was sent to Hawaii
to "pine off t'ue lay of the land" there
abouts, has arrived here accompanied by
Mrs. Blount and his private secretary,
Fllis Mills, and will stay a few days be
fore going on to Washington. In an in
terview he said: "1 am glad to escape
from the isolation of the islands and to get
back to my own land. Everything is quiet
on the islands. There will be no further
trouble. Those of the Royalists wbo'might
feel disposed to make trouble recognize
that the whole matter is in the hands of
the United States government; that if
this country wants to annex them annex
ation will be accomplished; and, on the
contrary, if the United States does not
want them some other disposition will be
made of the islands. I feel safe in saying
that there will .be no trouble of any
In respouse to a question as to the prob
ability of bis successor being named
Blount said that he had heard nothing on
the subject. He was still Hawaiian minis
ter, and had left no one in the islands to
act for him. He supposed it was quite
usual lor foreign ministers to take vaca
tions. In regard to his work in the islands
Mr. Blount said: "My report has been com
pleted and forwarded to 'Washington. It
is now the property of the government,
ard you will understand that it would not
be t;ood form for me to discuss the nature
or the tenor of any recommendttions i"
may contain. AVhen I went to the islauds
it liecame necessary for me to hold myself
aiooi Irotu the people auu find my way to
the truth in my own way and upon my
own responsibility. The result was that I
have been in a complete state of isolation
while in Honolulu, and it is a great relief
to get away from it all. Much that has
been written and published in the United
States as to the islands and their people
does them a great injustice.
Minister Blount said that one of the
most amusing incidents of the many
which occurred during his experience iu
Honolulu was the attempt made by Dr.
Bowen, of the Xew York World, to effect
a compromise with the warring element,
and to secure a pension for the ex-queen.
"Dr. Bowen was very much in earnest,"
said Blount, fcand he tried to fix things
upon t'ue lines of Xew York practical
politics. Dr. Bowen told us that he had
already settled one revolution in Veneruela
and a little one like the Honolulu affair
was quite simple, he thought. The fun
niest part of it all was t he disposition on
the part of many leading people to take
Dr. Bowen seriously."
Blount dismisses the Spreckles cane in
cident with the laughkg assurance that
he has not investigated it. "The story of
a murder society lecently at Uonolulu is
nonsense." said BUmut. "It is a most
peace ia I community. Every one 'sleeps '
with his doors and windows open. At my
bouse the doors were not closed uight or
lay while I was there."
