Efforts Made to Enforce the Bering Sea Entente* A British Agent to Be Sent to the Seal Islands. Poachers Slaug'hterinc; Seals While the Government Is Waiting. Judge* of the Private Land Claims Court Appointed—Minister Porter Not Becalled. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, June 10.—The govern ment is actively engaged in preparing to carry out the plan for a closed season in Bering sea this year. It is understood that the force of revenue cutters now in those waters is to be supplemented by one or more naval vessels at the earliest possible moment. The necessary orders bad not been sent out from the navy department up to the close of business hours, today, and the detail officers will not discuss the future movements of the depart ment, but there is reason to believe that the orders will not be long delayed. There are four vessels at Mare island, California, ready for sea. The British men-of-war available for service in Alas kan waters are few in numbers. The larger part of the Pacific squadron was sent to Chile some months ago, and has not yet returned. The British govern ment, it is known, wishes the agreement strictly observed. A proposition was made by Minister Paunccfote that authority be given the British government to station an agent on the seal islands to see that the North American commercial company does not kill more than the 7500 seals fixed in the agreement, but on this ground the re 3uest was promptly denied by the presi ent, who felt that it was a reflection upon the good faith of this govern ment that could not be permit ted. For another reason, however, he saw fit to allow a British agent to visit the seal islands, and that was in order that he might see for himself and report to his government for its guid ance in arbitration, the actual state of the seal fisheries. Meanwhile poachers are believed to be taking a large num ber of skins and killing the mother seals while they aie at sea in search of food for their young. IMPORTANT APPOINTMENTS.

It will give us a clearer idea, from the interest shown by the different members in these debates, of their fit ness as candidates for different posi tions of trust as public servants, instead of picking them from the roster of a base political party, as done heretofore." The organization is to be on a secret society basis, and will be extended into other states as fast as possible. By next year the leaders expect to have sufficient strength to warrant the nomination of a presidential candidate. Edward Spelman Dead.

AN EXPLORING PARTY'S BAD EX PERIENCE IN ALASKA. Two Young Men from San Diego Starved in the Wilderness—Terrible Torture In flicted by Clouds of Mosquitoes. San Francisco, June 10. —A story of suffering and death in the interior of Alaska by California explorers has reached this city. A party of men re turned from Yukon to Chilcott with the news that an exploring party consisting of James Ingram and F. C. Young, of San Diego; J. W. Spenny and R. C. Rose, of Portland, Ore., and others went to the valley of the Yukon for prospecting pur poses, starting inland from Forty mile creek. After spending some time on the Yukon, they, commenced their homeward trip. Their provisions gave out; they became so weak that they could not pull their boat, and they had to aban "doh it. They were harrassed, ndt only by cold and hunger, but by clouds of mosquitoes and noxious flies. With bleeding faces and bodies full of sores, the party dragged their way on. They grew so weak that they could not beat off the mosquitoes. Their eyelids became so inflamed that partial blindness en sued. Hunger-stricken Ingram be seeched his companions to shoot him and end his misery. He was begged to be patient, but nature gave out and he sank in the snow and died. Young died of starvation on the following day. The rest of the party managed to push further on. They had not eaten food for nearly a week, when a quantity of dried salmon was found. Strength and hope returned to the adventurers. Their first thought was to reach their comrades. Ingram had never stirred. His body was covered with mosquitoes. The survivors covered him with a few branches of hemlock and placed a rough stone at the head of the rude grave. The body of Young could not be found, but the distant growls of savage wolves indicated the fate of the lost man. The survivors finally reached Chilcott. Conspirators Convicted. Uniontown, Pa., June 10.—The jury in the case against John McSloy, Mike Dismon and twenty-eight other strikers, for conspiracy and riot at the brick works, found McSloy and Dismon guilty and acquitted the rest.

Two young girls who were considered bright scholars in the high school were looking over a birthday book, which was arranged alphabetically, a hand some, illuminated letter forming the heading for each page. "I wonder," said one of the girls, "if there are just as many pages as there are letters in the alphabet, or whether there are some duplicates? Count the pages and see, Maud." Maud turned the leaves rapidly and announced. "There are no duplicates; only thirty pages, just as there are let ters," "Why, you goose!" said Alice, "you'd better go back to primary school. Don't you know there are'only twenty-four letters in the alphabet?"— Youth's Com panion. A Train Problem. It is seldom indeed that the following question is answered correctly offhand: A train starts daily from San Fran cisco to New York and one daily from New York to San Francisco, the journey lasting five days. How many trains will a traveler meet in journeying from New York to San Francisco? About ninety-nine persons out of a hundred would say five trains, as a mat ter of course. The fact is overlooked that every day during the journey a fresh train is starting from the other end, while there are five trains on the way to begin with. Consequently the traveler will meet not five trains but ten.—New York Tribune. A suit with an artistic cut and fit, first-class workmanship and linings, can be had at H. A. Getz, 125 W. Third st.
