SEAL DISPUTE BETWEEN FOUR NATIONS ENDS Secretary Nagel Who Has Had Charge for This Country Pleased With Arbitra tion Outcome CALLS IT iTJeAL WAY TO SETTLE DISPUTES Problem of Long 'Standing Proves Very Simple. When the Interested Parties : Get Together (By Victor Elliott. WASHINGTON. July IS. Secre tary of the Dopartmeut of Conimorco and Labor Nagel has a new dutl to perform, now that tto Inter national arbitration treaty regulat ing tbo control ard administration ot fur seal , trading has been nego tiated between this country. Great Britlan, Russia and Japan. Aside from his duties connected with tbo department ot commerce and labor, Mr. Nagol will bo known hereafter as the International gome warden, with plenipotentiary powers in guarding the fur seals of the waters around Alaska. His duties will bo administered In connection with other high officers of the respective governments, who are parties to tha agreement, in the hope that the fur seal Industry will bo properly protected from bands of marauders who Infest tho Pacific ocean, killing seals by the thou sands, and gradually bringing about nn extermination of tho seals. Tho negotiation ot tho pact be tween the parties Is considered hero as a great diplomatic stroke by friends ot Secretary of State Knox, and an agreement of mutual advant age to tho nations who havo signed the treaty. Great Advance. In speaking of It. Secretary Nagel said that he regarded tho -arbitration treaty as a wonderful advance, nhmrlntf hnw tanv9it Is for the representatives ot friendly powers- to reach a common basis upon which to deal with matters about which there were differences ot opinion. In the secretary's opinion, this arbitration pact is the premise ot othor treaties more widely diver gent In character, more vital to the interests of nations. Through the example set by President Taft, all differences ot opinion between var ious countries, ho thinks, no matfer what Is contemplated, could be set tlodethrough tho peaceful offices of arbitration. In support ot his view, Mr. Nagel points to the pros fent peace arbitration agreement be tween this country and Great Bri tain, In which various matters are to bo taken up for discussion and arbitration without the resort to armed force, a3 wan done in former days. In returning to a discussion of the seal past. Sir. Nagel said that lUw sla and the United States had agreed upon the abollshmont of pelagic seal fishing, the United States be cause of its large and valuable herds upon tho Prlbilof Islands, and Rus sHi because of her herds on Com mander Islands. The Fur Seal Question. "Japan, however. " ha sahl, "has practically had her herd wiped out by pelagic sealing. The four coun tries had different Interests, and yet after thoroughly discussing the subject In all 1U bearings they were finally able to reach an agree ment which is satisfactory to all. "It Is not to the interest of the world," Mr. Nagel continued, "to have tho fur seal exterminated, and yet that fato was unavoidable If pelagic sealtngwas to continue. Tho reason for It Is that In pelagic seal ing It Is the female seals that are slaughtered. Tho far seal Is a polygamus animal. v-v "At the opening of tho breeding season the fights between the males take place -which determine which are to dominate the haroTus. Once they are settled, the other seals are driven otf and kept away by a ys tem ot regulation that Is marvelous. After the young are born, tho fe male leaves the land and goes out to sea. not for three or ten or twenty miles, but for hundreds of miles Into the high seas In search of food. The male, however, does net leave tho land or It close prox imity. Therefore, It Is tho females that fall victims to tho pilasie sealer, and" the loss of a female Is a doable loss, because It means the lots of ehr young, which must s-tarvo to death." How It Is Fixed. Nothing 1 lost by tho killing of the male stals. Urn secretary tald AH expert representing the various nation, agreed to It at the con ference jast closed.

I HERS OF THE LOCAL DISTRICT Copper Qu&en and Calumot and Arizona Voluntarily Take Step; Raise Ef fective August 1 INCREASE TO $3.75 IS GRANTED FROM' $3,50 Recognition of Value of Ef ficiency on Part of Pro fessional Men Against Plain Labor An Increase In wages for all tho miners In tho employ ot both tho Cop per Queen and Calumet and Arizona Mining companies was announced yesterday. Tho increase amounts ,to 25 cents a day for each miner and gooe into offect August 1. Minors' wages in the district are, now ?8.50 per day. but under the new. scale will be $3.75 per day. Raise Is Voluntary. This raise, which is made voluntar ily on the part of tho two big com panies,, came as a general surprise, but a very pleasant ope. No raise had icon asked by tho men and none was expected at this time. The an nouncement was made by posting no- tices at 6 o'clock yesterday morning t at all the shafts of the two companies. Tho notices posted by the companies nero practically tho same, the one posted by tho Copper Queen company being as follows: NOTICa Effective August 1st, 1911, and until further notice, the wages of miners will be $3.75 per day. , There will be nb change in tho rates for helpers, muckers, car men or other classes of under ground labor. When requested miners will be required to muck at miners' wages. S. W. FRENCH. , , General Manager., When asked yesterday about tho reasons for tho raise by a representa tive of The Review, Walter Douglas, general manager of the Phelps Dodgo company, which controls the Copper Queen company, said: Reasons For Move. "The board or directors of the Cop per Queen, in instructing its local management to increase miners' wag es from August 1 to $3.75 per day, has done so for two reasons which it feels justifies its action. First, be cause of the fact that the closing ot the mines on Sunday has materially, reduced the monthly earnings of its miners; and, secondly, it was desired to differentiate between the trained and experienced miners, who havo spent years in learning their profes sion, and the untrained labor repre sented by tho muckers, carmen, etc. "With reference to the first reason the directors did not feel justified in resuming Sunday work, as they feel that for a day's rest each week is es sential and while the present condi tion of the copper market hardly war rants the proposed raise, they are willing and anxious to do anything possible to keep Bisbeo an American community and a city of homes. Change In Scale. 'The past scale of wages whereby, no premium is given, or consideration shown to the trained miner, who has In many cases spent years of his life in mastering his trade, seems to the directors unfair and lndcfenslve. In no other Industry does the apprentice re ceive tho same pay as the master workman. To stimulate a man's am bition there must bo something to work for and there must be hope ot something better for him who Is will ing and anxious to improve his condi tion. Unfortunately, In industries em ploying so" many men, it is only pos sible to carry out this principle to a very limited extent, but they believo that a step Is being taken in the right direction in rewarding the efficient miner with Increased wages and hold ing out to other classes of under ground labor an Incentive to strive for a cetter paid job. Preference to Helpers. "In furtherance ot this system Mi. Woodman is instructing his foremen to Invariably give the preference when needing miners, to their own helpers, muckers and carmen, when theso aro capable of doing the work." It was impossible to obtain a state ment from any of the Calumet and Arizona officials, as Mr. Greonway, the general manager, is away on a va cation and Mr. Gohring, the superin tendent, was out of the city yester- iay. It is understood, however, thit, the same reasons Influenced both companies to make tine raise In wages. HUDSON BAY FIRE. TORONTO, Ont, July 18.
