The Important Seal-Fishery Question Again. thts government's determined attitude nr IH* IWTIl?THE STATE AMD TBEASUET DE PARTMENTS AGREE IH ENFORCING THE LAW? the QUESTION of fUBIRDICTION. The State department has not as yet received any demand for the release of the sealing vessel Black Diamond, which, as before stated in The Stab, was captured in Behring seA by the American cutter Hush. Doubtless such a demand will be made as soon as the British government has had time to know of the capture officially. Such a demand will not be complied with. The United States government now has a policy with relation to this question; the law as found on the statute books will be executed, and the cbtscGi are that there will be as many seizures made as there is occasion for. No very serious trouble with Great Britain is auticipated, though it is thought she may make a demonstration for effect. SEIZURE of THE black diamond. The steamer Dora, arriving at San Francisco from Behring sea Monday night, brought a de tailed account of the seizure, and also reported the revenue cutter Rush to have been in pur suit of six other vessels at the time of the steamer's sailing. The Black Diamond was overhauled by the Hush on July 1L When ordered to heave to the captain of the sealer refused to do so, but quickly complied when the ports of the Rush were lowered and the guns run out. Copt. Shepherd and Lieut. Tuttle went aboard the sealer and found 103 seal skins. She was then taken in charge by the Rush and sent to Sitka. The captain of the Black Diamond said that when he left Victoria he had been ordered not to pay any attention to the demands of the American cutter if overhauled. It is reported that the Canadian sealer Triumph, which was released after being overhauled, had 800 seal skins on board, but they were buried in salt and escaped the search of the revenue cutter's officers. The Canadian authorities are reported to be very much worked up over the capture. AUTHOBITT FOB THE SEIZURE. These seizures are made under the proclama tion of President Harrison issued on the 23d of March, declaring all persons caught violating the United States statutes by fishing for seals in Alaskan waters subject to seizure, forfeiture and other punishment provided by the law. THE QUESTION OF JURISDICTION. This brings up the question again of the jurisdiction of the United States over the waters of Behring sea, which was raised nnder the former administration?with the exception that now the State department is prepared to maintain our right to those waters. As is well known, when Mr. Bavard was at the head of the department he was not satisfied as to the validity of our claim to this jurisdic tion and the administration was not prepared to sustain the Treasury department in its effort to enforce the law. Now there is nothing in the policy of the State department that antagonizes the Treasury in the execution of the law. It has been said that an agreement had been entered into between the United" States and Great Britain for the protection of these seal fisheries, in common cause. There is nothing to that. The United States maintains its juris diction over those waters as of right If Eng land persists in disputing it, that is a matter yet to be settled. WHY THEBE WILL BE NO SERIOUS CONFLICT. It is not likely, however, that serious conflict will occur, for the reason that it is to the interestjnot only of the United States, but to Great Britain and all other great commercial countries, that these seals should be preserved from the slaughter of piratical sealing crafts. I he United States protects them against our own and foreign poachers alike. It is not thought at all probable that Great Itritsiiii would make any dispute of our jurisdic tion over Behring Bea if it were not for the eflect upon the fisheries question on the east const. They merely want a grievance to hold uP.a?.an off-se'. to ours so that they can say: "We 11 Bettle both question.! at once. Even if the I nitcd States made no claim to jurisdiction over Behring sea it is thought that all nutions would unite in suppressing tne seal ing that is done by poachers, and no nation but ours would undertake to capture seals. THE SITUATION IS THIS. The only time that the seals can be taken without devastation to the breed is when they are beyond all question within the jurisdiction of this country; that is, within three miles of the shore. The ouly time foreigners would have opportunity to capture them would be when it were a crime to do so?when they were with young, lo prevent their free taking at such time would be to soon destroy the breed, a thing no coun I try wants done. The American vessels are the only ones that i could do legitimate sealing even iL Behr'ng sea j were regarded as high seas. So neither nation I can claim to have an interest in these fisheries Our jurisdiction over Behring sea does not extend our seal fisheries. It merely enables us to protect the seal against destruction by poachers of our own and foreign nations. The State department will not admit of any question as to our jurisdiction. They hold that to be fully established, and the seizures are made with the full warrant of the administra tion, in compliance with our law. It may be that Great Britain will send war vessels to protect these piratical sealers, and that they will commit some overt act. If so, there would probably be trouble, for it appeal s to be a set policy to maintain our rights in Behring sea as in any undisputed jurisdiction. THE STAND or THE TBEASUBY DEPARTMENT. Assistant Secretary Batcheller, talking with Stab reporter to-day, said that the Treasury department had no part in the political or diplomatic side of the question. They found the law on the statute books, he said, and it was their duty to enforce it. Moreover, thev had the proclamation of the President, wh.eh announced that it was the purpose of the ad ministration that it should be enforced. '?I don't see how there can be much trouble about it," he said, "for no nation can fight to throw these fisheries open to destruction. The commercial interests of the world are too seri ously involved. A great commercial nation like England couldnotafford to have this destruction go on. The protection we give is for the good of the whole world. The habits at the seal are well known. Thev make three visits to these islands. On the last visit, when they are not breeding or with young, they are taken. We limit the numb'er that mav be taken in any one year and provide "that the female shall be preserved, only 5 per cent of the catch being allowed to be of that sex. At certain times of the year they disappear. No one knows where they go?perhaps out in the deep water. Again, they ore seen in the sea, far from shore. That is where they are killed by these poachers, and the mothers with young are the ones that suffer, because they are the only ones to be trot in at any numbers. By killing the females when with young this way the whole breed would soou be destroyed England can't afford to have this done." THE SEABCHINO OF THE TRIUMPH. Another prominent official intimated th?t the case of the seizure and search of the Triumph, which was afterward released because no seal skins were found on board, might be a more serious matter than the detention and seizure of the Black Diamond, for it involved the right of the United States to seize and search bus Kcted vessels outside of what is conoeded to the limits of the jurisdiction of the United States. This government, he said, claims that right within a limit not yet acknowledged by England, and the settlement of the question. after all, is to be one of jurisdiction.

Toronto, Oxt., July 31.?A special dispatch to the Empirf from Ottawa gays: ' The latest account of piracy uy the United States author ities in Behring sea continues to be much dis cussed iu official circles. A dispatch has been received at the fisheries department from Mr. Baker, M.P., giving additional particulars of the seizure of the Black Diamond. It appears that the vessel was seized when 70 miles from land. Mr. Baker says that a strong feeling of resentment and indignation has been engen dered among the inhabitants of British Colum bia by this wanton outrage and that a meeting of citizens of Victoria is to be held to express their indignation. This dixpatch was under consideration by the council yesterday. Until the official report is before the government no action can be taken, and the minister of cus toms accordingly telegraphed to the collector at Victoria to forward full particulars without loss of time.
