SACRAMENTO, WEDNESDAY MOHXIXG. DECEMBER 14. 1892. NATIONAL CAPITAL. Secretary Foster Answers a Cana dian -Minister's Criticism. CANADA INTERFERES WITH THE AD JUSTMENT OF DISPUTES. I.ill Introduced In tho Senate by Sen ator Mitchell to Establish a Tem porary Camp at Chicago Daring Next August for Military Instruc tion of Army and Volunteer Forces of tho United States—rroceetlinj.s in the Senate and House. Special to tbe Recobo-Ukiox. \\ asiiixctipx, Dec. 13.—The attention : of Seen tary of State Foster was called to a lengthy interview with Canadian Fi nance Minister Foster, telegraphed from Ottawa, in which tiie Canadian severely criticises President Harrison's annual ir. ssage with reference to Canada. Speaking of the reciprocity matter, Secretary Foster said: "During the con ference last winter Mr. Blame did not in sist on a uniform tariff for both countries, but did ask that tho schedule be not con liui ii to natural products, but include an agreed list of manufactured goods. Tne fishery question covers more than a cen tury of voluminous discussion and pro longed controversy, but the most V . ■ examination of it shows that a: overy step in its history the exacting ami un reasonable demands of Canada have frus trated otherwise harmonious adjustments between Great Britain and the i nited States. 'I hisises] ecially noticeable in Ihe fur seal controversy, it is a well-known fact thai in ISBB the «übjecl had reached a complete basis of settlement in London between Lord Salisbury and Minister s. when Canada's remonstrances ■ efealed the arrangement and precipi ; tti 1 the two Governments into a bitter discussion, ont ot which has grown tire . Behring Sen arbitration. "Canada's statement >f the issue in volved in the controversy is also mislead ing," said Secretary Foster. "It is not a question of free fishing on the high seas. The i.nvi ni unit of tiie Unite 1 di es not claim that Behring Sea is a metre clausum, and does not seek to re strict legitimate freedom of the ocean. '■ But, in the language of Mr. Blame.it does claim that the law of the sen is net lawlessness, it holds that for seals born and reared on the Pribyloif Islands, on : which they spend a large part ol their ex istence, and to which they return with unvarying instinct, represent a large ami valuable interest and industry, which should not be permitted to bo extermi nated by the inhuman methods of Cana dian po.crrilOl'S. "The Canadian Minister clouds the canal controversy by shitting the real . ground to an alleged comparison of the relative advantages the two countrii rive from each other's concessions under ; the treaty of Washington m the matter of ! navigation. The whole movement isevi i dently designed to force tbe 1 nited States to yield to Canada the free navigation of the Hudson River, a concession which was left unconsidered in the conference which led up to the treaty of Washing ton. The navigation of Lake Michigan by Canadians was made tun an express equivalent of the navigation of the St. Lawrence River. Every attempt to bring ', about a better understanding or the canal tolls has been met iiy a demand from Canada tnat tree navigation of the Hud son Civet- be thrown in by the I nited _ tates as tne price of Camilla's fuLulltnent of the simple terms of the treaty of Wash ington. "All nations have carefully guarded tbe internal avenues of communication ar.d coastwise commerce from foreign in trusion, and tbe Presidenl lias neither the inclination nor the power to pay the price nl its surrender in this instance to secure ii' Bervan ■•■ by Canada of what he regards as ulain treaty obligations." Secretary Foster also devotes some space to Canada's attitude toward our railway traffic, ami says: "Ourtoleration ..I tbe Canadian railway system's oper ations thus far have been one of tlie many instances of tbe forbearance of the Xx- \ ■ an i a distinguished mark of tho di sin to cultivate friendly relations with i anada."

It was alleged, he I •ai i. mi the part of the _» Uon exchang ■-. that the passage of such bills would be disastrous to the farmers, out on tbe other band the farmers of the Southern I Stati s. as well as the farmers of the West, with almost one voice, demanded the enactment of the measure to prevent dealings in futures, 'ihe cotton-growers every year were b miug poorer and becoming victims of the rapacious policy which taken their earnings and added the amount to the over-grown wealth of men who used their powers for that purpose. i leorge quoted from the rules of tbe New ■."ork Colton Exchange in show that tiie quotations were not fixed according to I actual traffic in the market, bui by a sliding scale establishi d by the Revision ; Committee, which met only once a ! month.

West has been marked bya large increase 101 real population. Large cities and pros- i pen ms low ns have grow nap with its de- I : velopment, but the strength and power of ! the \\ est have resulted from the rapid in- ; . crease- ol tbe farming population, "Wherever agriculture has been the | basts of wealth tbe lands have been first 'oecupiedinsmalllioldings.au Ithel iwns built up later, or pari pi num. Them is no reason why this law should have been, or still should be. reversed in this st: te. I he wealth of California lies in her soil and its capabilities under our strikingly favorable climatic influences. "The Census Bulletin. No. 134 issued' I by the i.ovoi-iiiuent, gave us a table of the ; counties ol the Stale whose population 1 was enumerated; it compared ISSO with ' i-n I, showing increase and decrease in the ! several counties, and total increase for the dees le. It also gave iv detail the pi pula tim in townships and towns and cities but no attempt was made to trace thep " pie to their homes, or to show by arrangi d I data the relative increase or decrease in I town and country, nor lo bring into com u tho drift of population in respect ! ; to the different localities of the State. "1 have undertaken to separate tbe ! tables and rearrange the data so as to I show the relative increase in town and country, my purpose being to discover! . where tlie increase has gone and what di luctionsmay be drawn from the facts ' The unpleasant fact appears that the net increase of __3,431j for the whole state can he found in a lew only of the counties, '• A'hilesome the riches) in natural re- 1 ■ . ir is and advantages -have gained but i iittlc or not at ail. Of this increase 195,955 have gone into cities and towns of over 3,000 inhabitants, and many more in the BBialli r villages. "The analysis which I give will show 1 that we have gained of rural population ! in ten years only 78,113, while the towns I and cities have gained 205,323, or 77 per 'cent. More than one third of the entire increase has gone into the three cities of san I- rancisco, Los Angeles and I lakland. 1 1 mid no evidence of any great increase of rural growth in Alameda, and as the sub-divisions are not clearly noted I treat the Increase as practically all in tie towns and cities. The result of tho tables 1 have made is, that while wo have added 343.43. to the mass of our population, we have added since 1880 to the towns 265,323, which leaves only 78.U3 added to the country population. In some counties there has been an increase m tbe popula tion of the towns, but the county as a I whole has decreased. Butt! county is an example. The tow nof I Shieo .has gained 1,237, while the county as a - hole has lost 782. AmadOr has 1,064 less population than in 1880, but iter towns have increased "The two columns of actual gain in towns and gain in rural population to gether aggregate 3b7,4t», which number, j as shown in my tables, exceeds the actual gain in the whole state by 24,033. I welve counties, shown by my tables, lost 20,52 of these, and six counties fell off in rural population 3^oß, while gaining in the towns that number more than the total ! gain in the counties; and this accounts tor the apparent excess in the column of rural increase. Seven counties of South- ! orn California have received iii percent. of tbe entire increase of rural population I in the state—a very significant feet. "Southern California and portions of Centra! 1 alilornia have done well and are doing well; lei us be thankful for that. Northern California needs the earnest, intelligent effort and Vest energies of her influential citizens, and especially: does it need something more than the mere operation of trains on the part of the only railroad company we have, lt I needs its direct effort lo promote immi gration. "Trusting that my labor—and it has been no easy task In thus presenting the J - of immigration to the state for the j past decade—may awaken inquiry, and that it may lead to greater effort where it ' now plainly appears It is most needed, ■ this report is respectfully submitted."
