WAsnisoTON. March R Tho Tresldcnt sent
to tho Bonnto to-day tho Hohrlne Sea treaty of
Arbitration, which Was signod by Secretary
Dlalno nnd Blr Julian Pauncofotc, tho British
Minister, ton days ago. The treaty was not
accompanied by a roeommendatlon as to tho
modus rimuff, but such a rocommondatlon
may possibly bo sent In to-morrow, when tho
l'resldent will transmit nil tho correspondonco
on tho subject thnt 1ms takon placo since that
publlshod last spring.
ThoSonntowns in oxocutlvo session for nn
hour or moro nnd listened to a very lively dis
cussion of the llshnrles controcrBy. nftor
which tho treaty was roforrrd lothoCommlt
teo on Foreign Holatlons. Senators Sherman,
Trye, Morgnn. Tcllor, Folton. Hale, nnd othors
mado short speeches; and nil woro of tho
opinion thnt tho treaty should bo promptly
rntllled and tho law with regard to poach
ing Ugoroubly enforced. If tho tiealy
should bo promt tly ratified it would
not hocomo opeintlxo dining tho coming
fishing season If Unglnnd rofuses to renew tho
moens rirpiidi, then It Isthooplnlonof Sonntors
on both sides of tho Chamber th it tho United
States should procoed at oneo to punish all
poachers and violators of tho law. leaving the
question whether the law had been violated or
not to tho courts or to tho arbitrators.
The spoochos In tho exocutlvo sosslon woro
of nn oxcoodtngly aggrosslve character and
woro mndo by somo of tho Senators, lit least,
in tho light of the fact thnt nftor tho Cabinet
session this morning a mossngo was sent to
Iyord Salisbury, w lilch. it Is supposed, said
that tho Unitod Status Government meant to
defend Its rights promptly nnd vigorously.
Kenntor Shorman was tho Hist speaker. Ho
explained tho provisions of tho treaty nnd
lot out tho fact that ho and other
Senators on tho Foreign AfTnlrs Committee
had been called Into consultation with Secie
tnrylllaino on the morning it heeamo known
thnt Sir Julian l'uuiicefete had signed the
arbitration tit nty and Lord Salisbury had
simultaneously nnnounced his deteunination
not to agree to a roiiewal of the tuoixs riuinb.
Mr. Sherman was followed by -Mr. .Morgan, tho
only Democratic Senator who spoke. Ho
agreed entirely with tho Chairman of the
Foreign AlTalrs Committee, and said . that
Democrats as well hs Republicans wero In
favor of llrmnoss and dignity.
Sonntor Frye. In bis usual exploslvo way.
created considerable excitement by advancing
tho proposition thnt If Lnglnnd persisted in
her refusal to continue the iiifn rnemi tho
United Statos had It in its power to bring Hug
land to terms In a very simple and dim q wav.
Senator Fr) e's plan Is the ono that has always
been a favorite with him. of retusingto t nnndn,
tho privilege she now enjoys of trniispoilliig
goods In bond through the United States, "lte
tallatol retaliate!" shouted Senator Trye.
" Thnt Is the only sensible wav of bringing thn
English Government lo terms."
Other Senutors. Including .Mr. Cullom, Chair
man of the Inter-htato Commerce Committee,
endorsed Mr. Fryo's proposition, which
aroused considerable enthusiasm among the
Senators generally. The Intimation was glen
that it England did not shown moro friendly
disposition Mr. Fryo's plan of getting ovu
would shortly bo put into operation.
Senutor Teller delivered a vigorous speech
against tho refusal of Lord Salisbury to ox
tend tho moduli nvendi, and insisted that tho
rights of American citlens should bo pro
tected In accordance with tho laws now on tho
statute hooks. Ho said he was opposed to
truckling to Groat llritnlu In this matter, and
'ntircn'e lthnt Lord Hallb-;ry could ho brought
to iorms in a fow hours if tho Administration
wus authorized to enforce tlio law.-, and if
necessary, to send ships to tlio sealing
-grounds to protect American Interests. Ilo
gave statistics of seal killing which w ere alarm
ing In tho cxtromo.
benntor Hale, supposed to bo speaking for
Secretary Hluine. advocated a ratification of
tho trenty on tho ground that It would commit
Great ltrltnin to the acknowledgment that tho
United States bod certain rights In the liehr
ing Soa which Groat Britain has not hereto
fore admitted. ,
Senator Felton.who mado his maiden speech
behind thn closed doors, ridiculed I.oid Salis
bury's claim for nthlrty-mllo limit. and quoted

President's nttltudo that tho law must bo en

doitakestho suppression of poaching it will
be found that he has adopted a moro compre
hensive Plan than has heretofore been en
forced. It has been pointi dout to the Presi
dent within tile last day or two thnt the pres
ervation of tho fur seals in llohrlnu Sea is
really of less Importnneo than their iirolectlon
In other and adjacent wateis. where at

been advised that tho Canadian poachers find
n much more fruitful field In the north i'uellla
Oceiut thin In the liohring Sea. Thn entire
shore of tho ocean Is lined with hundreds of
islands and Indented by havs and small rivers,
which aie almost constantly filled with seals,
nnd hero tho poacheisilo their most effective
work. Thoy not only kill unmolested in these
comparatively cleni waters, but they form
a barricade which movents the seals
from getting up into Heliring Sea at
all. The President has beou mlvlsed to
send such naval vessols nnd levenue cutters
as ho can command, tonnforco tho law against
poaching for a distance of lllteen miles from
tho shoro of tho Ninth Pacific Ocean, leaving
tho matter of killing In the open sea tofutuio
negotiation and arbitration. Fifteen miles is
fixed as the. limit of jurisdiction, because that
is taken to bo tho distance that can bo covered
nnd protected by modem guns. Tho sugges
tion for this nctlon Is based on tlio principle
that a nation litis nirisdlctlon of tlio
wnters for iuch a distnnco fiom shore

days this distnnco was htatod ns n stone's

tho distnnco that could ho covered by e.iiiiion
