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
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
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.

St. Louis, Mo., June 10.—The advance
guard of the executive committee of the
People's party which convenes here Sat
urday, to select the place of meeting for
the national convention, has arrived.
E. L. Sexton, one of the secretaries of
the Cincinnati convention, stated to a
reporter that many advocate the placing
of state tickets in the field in a number
of states, while others think that such a
course would be unwise and have a ten
dency to divide the party's strength.
As to the candidates that would be
placed before the national convention,
Sexton said a variety of names had been
suggested, but so far Senator Stanford of
California seems to be the favorite.
WISCONSIN FARMERS' ALLIANCE.
Lacrosse, Wis., June 10. —At today's
session of the State Farmers' Alliance
convention a lengthy get of resolutions
were unanimously adopted. They
favor a system of taxation that will not
favor one class at the expense of an
other; free coinage silver; the abolition
of national banks and the substitution
of legal tender currency issued by the
government in sufficient volume to do
the business of the country; that the
government should loan money to citi
zens with certain prudent restrictions
on real estate security, at interest not to
exceed two per cent.; recom
mend an uncompromising effort to
secure to farmers and other wealth
producers a fair share in the manage
ment of the government ; favor the co
operation of industrial organizations in
securing the demands of the St. Louis
platform; demand the prohibition of
gambling on boards of trade; favor gov
ernment control of telegraph and rail
roads ; the election of the president,
vice-president and senators by direct

the establishment of postal savings

Dcs Moines, la., June 10.—The Pro
hibition state convention this afternoon
adopted a platform and nominated a
full state ticket. The platform adopted
is long and complicated. It favors
straight-out Prohibition ; free and un
limited coinage of silver; Australian
ballot reform ; a state constabulary to
enforce prohibition, and the immediate
abolishment of the whole United States
internal revenue system, since its opera
tion is to encourage, by recognizing, the
liquor traffic. There was considerable
discussion over the platform, but
finally adopted as a whole.
The candidates nominated are as fol
lows: Governor, Isaac T. Gibson, Sa
lem; lieutenant-governor, J. T. Little,
Perry; superintendent of public instruc
tion, Mrs. M. H. Dunham, Burlington;
railroad commissioner, C. S. Hart,
Coyne; supreme iudgo, D. B. Twiney,
A state central committee was elected,
composed of one member from each dis
trict, and other plans were formed to
carry on an active campaign.
The action of the Peoples' party in
dodging the prohibition issue, both in
the Cincinnati aad DesMoines platforms,
was commented upon and denounced.
THE OHIO COLD WATER PARTY.
Sprinqfikld, 0., June 10.—Over 1500
strangers are in the city, drawn by the

hibition notables are on the ground, in
cluding Rev. Sam Small of Georgia and
Samuel Dickie, chairman of the National
Prohibition committee. The talk of the
delegates now is for a strong farmer and
labor platform, and union with the
farmers meets with wide favor.
PEOPLE'S PARTY OF UTAH.
Salt Lake City, June 10. —Pursuant
to call and following the apparent pro
gramme of the People's party, the terri
torial committee held a secret meeting
this afternoon. Tonight it is given out
that it passed a preamble that it is the
sense of the territorial central commit
tee of the People's party of Utah, that
the party throughout the territory
should dissolve and leave its members
free to unite with the great national
parties, according to their individual
preferences. Little importance is at
tached here to this action.
A NEW POLITICAL PARTY.
St. Paul, June 10. —A new political
party has been started here under the
name of the National Association, sixty
gentlemen of this city and vicinity filing
the articles of incorporation. The ob
jects of the party, as stated in the arti
cles of incorporation, are to "unite
socially and fraternally all respectable
citizens, for bettering their condition by
a course of debates upon political sub
jects, from which will result a more
thorough knowledge of what is
needed in the way of reform.
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

Cronin trial at Chicago. He was "dis

PERIENCE IN ALASKA.

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
Uniontown, Pa., June 10.—The jury

then taken up.

"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

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
