QUITE A BACK DOWN.
Count Bismarck Roars Like a Sucking Dove. YIELDING ALL ALONG THE LINE He Will Welcome Bates, Smile Upon Sewall and Call It Square With Metaafa. I Associated Press Dispatches to tbe Hkkaj.d.i Berlin, April 20.—Herbert Bismarck has prepared a statement for the Samoan conference, as a basis for discussion. It has been submitted to and approved by Sir Edward Malet, the British Ambassa dor, who was in all probability consulted while it was being drafted. If the Amer ican Commissioners accept the statement, the conference ought not to last more than a week. Germany concedes the principle of absolute non-interference in Samoa, and the natives are to be left free to choose as their ruler Malietoa, Tama sese, or Mataafa. No claims for com pensation for German subjects are men tioned in the statement, and, practically, the work of the conference is limited to defining explicitly the powers of Consuls in regulating trade and shipping, the boundaries of American rights over Pago Pago and other victualing stations, and the formation of a tribunal for the pro tection and trial of foreigners. The Foreign Office considers that Bis marck's censure of Consul Knappe and his declaration tbat Germany does not desire to meddle with the internal affairs of Samoa, combined with the proposals to be placed before the Samoan confer ence, furnish ample proof that Germany earnestly wishes to conciliate the Ameri can Government. At the same time it is regretted that the American Government ignored diplo matic etiquette in sending delegates who are personally prejudiced on the question to be laid before the conference. Noth ing of this feeling, however, will be shown toward Bates and Sewall, who will meet with a cordial greeting from Herbert Bismarck on their arrival on Thursday. Sir Edward Malet, tbe British Ambas sador here, has asked Lord Salisbury to send Scolt, the British Minister to Ber lin, 08 a delegate to the Samoan confer ence. Scott was formerly Secretary of the British Embassy in Berlin, and is thoroughly conversant with the Samoan treaties and colonial matters generally. KIOKIXU CANAOIANB Object to t ii( lr Sam'*Claim to Bea ring Sea.. Toronto, April 20. —A special from Ottawa to the Empire (Government or gan) fays: Colonel Prior, some day next week, will initiate a discussion in the House in reference to the Behriog Sea seizures. The people of British Co lumbia arc ?.'!xk>us to secure a termina tion of the unpleasantness which has existed for the last three years, and until the question of jurisdiction in Behripg Sea is determined, some irritation is likely to exist. It is understood that, negotiations are still in progress on the subject, and the general belief is that there will be aa international con ference to deliberate on the ques tion whether or not Behring Sea is a mare clausum. The preposterous claim of the United States to exclusive jurisdiction in those waters is one which affects all the great maritime powers. Frsnce, Germany and Italy are almost as much interested in the question as Great Britain and Canada, and the sup port of the Governments of these coun tries is confidently relied upon to sus tain the contention of the Canadian Gov ernment. At the present juncture, the Premier will doubtless not feel justified in speak ing as openly on the question as he or the paople of British Columbia would like, but doubtless he will be able to give assurances to tbe House as will satisfy the country that the Government has not been neg lectful of its duty or of Canadian interests. A special from Victoria, B. C., on the subject says: The seal fishers are going out armed, and prepared to resist seizure by American cutters. The (/lobe, commenting upon the pos sibility of a conflict, says: "In order to obviate this danger, the British Govern ment should order a man-of-war to pro tect the Canadians in Behring Sea, or should plainly abandon the apparently shallow pretense that Great Britain will stand by Canada's rights against any American aggression whatever."

Considerable discussion is being indulged in for and against the bill, and county division is momen tarily set aside by the irrigation discussion, but the people here are pre paring to take vigorous steps, looking to the defeat of coun'y division. It is probable that an injunction will be served upon the Commissioners of tbe new county to prevent them from calling an election to vote upon division.

FOOLED ON THEIR POSTOFFICE. First Comptroller Dunham'made a de cision of considerable interest to the citizens of San Franc'sco. The act of Congress of March 2, 1887, directs the appointment of three Commissioners to select and purchase a sight for a public building at San Francisco at a cost not to exceed $350,000. The same act ap propriated the amount necessary to carry out its provisions. Subsequently, it ap pearing that suitable property could not be obtained within the limit fixed by Congress, that body on tbe 21st of Janu ary, last, passed an act increasing tbe limit of cost to $800,000. The First Comptroller has decided this latter act inoperative,as no appropriation is made to carry it into effect. He also decides that while the commission can continue investigations under the appro priation of March 23d, 1887, it cannot enter into any contract involving tbe government for future payment of money in excess of the appropriation of $350,000.

Salaries will be re stored to the regular rates on and after July let, next. CHINESE INVESTIGATORS. A party of four Chinamen, of high standing in the Celestial Empire, arrived in town this morning.

STYLES. In a nutshell you have it. Styles becoming to everybody. Every lady, child and miss should dress becomingly, and can do so if they wish, simply by following or giving a few mo ment's attention to ideas advanced in almost every fashion journal. The craze for Directoire Styles is as great as ever. Directoire meaning simple drapery and straight lines, height ening the figure, and is on this account very becoming to stout ladies of average stature. On the other hand, a lady below medium height cannot follow this, and must select from what is known as the Empire Style. This shortens the waist, and with sufficient bottom drapery adds to the height, without being being conspicuous. The next thought describes a few of the very many new goods now in demand. Our grand mothers were familiar with the old -fashioned weave of wool Poplin, but would hardly know it under the several different new names, each meaning exactly the same —Challis—Tarnise —Carmeline—in figured stripes—and plain. Silk warp Henriettas, in evening shades, and silk finished for street wear, are much in demand, the prices about the same as were for merly asked for inferior goods. For the benefit of our readers we copy an extract from a leading Journal: "Skirts to be stylish are short, cut quite narrow, straight in front and full behind. Two reeds, placed quite high, do away with bustle or pad. Sleeves are cut full and tend toward the old 'leg of mutton' style." OUR SPECIAL OFFERING FOR Wednesday, April 24th WILL BE 24c.
