When Asked to Review
the Sealing Award
HARD BLOW AT ARBITRATION
STRUCK BY THE DEMAND FOR A
REHEARING
English Dealers in Sealskins Satisfied
1 Wtth Anything Which Will
Diminish Felagio Sealing
Associated Press Special Wire.
LONDON, April 13.—A representative
of. the Associated Press has learned that
communications are passing between
Washington and London with reference
to- the Bering sea. The greatest secrecy
is preserved hero on the subject.
The Pall Mall Gazette refers to the
re-openlng of this question as another
'•lesson of the weakness of arbitration"
and says that it fails to see how Great
Britain can be expected to antedate a
revision of the awards, adding that they
cannot be tossed aside, "because one
party does not get its full demands."
The St. James Gazette says: "The
United States has inflicted another blow
on the believers In arbitration. Could a
more complete demonstration of the hol
lowness of arbitration bo given? It Is
quite possible this matter may become as
serious as the Venezuelan dispute. We
are bound to support the Canadians'
reasonable claims, and the prospect
might make us regret the failure of the
general arbitration treaty did It not show
how small respect Is felt for arbitration."
The representative of the Associated
Press has had interviews on the subject
iwlth heads of the sealing industry here.
The Importers of bonaun nan with sat
isfaction the prospect that it will di
minish sealing and urge an extension
of the close time of pei'a«lc sealing to the
end of August, and the close of the zor.e
to 200 miles from the Prlbyoff. They
claim that Canada Is ruining the future
of the trade, that prices are so low that
fewer expeditions are being fitted trut,
and they hope the United States will
carry out Its Intention to carry the north
western female skins, adding that If
Canada would only consent some ar
rangement might be made to resume
pelagic sealing a few years hence, when
seals are more plentiful.
The Globe remarks that there Is no
doubt that Lord Salisbury will refuse
to re-open the Bering sea question until
the stipulated date and until Canala's
claims are satisfied.
Mr. Harry White, the American charge
d'affaires, on Saturday delivered to Sir
Thomas Sanderson, parliamentary sec
retary for the foreign office, a dipatch
from the American secretary of the
state, couched in decided terms, urging
that the indiscriminate butchery of seals
in Alaskan waters should be stopped
Ir mediately and quoting the opinions
~f American and British experts who
a mined into the question last year.
11, dispatch asks the British govern
nt to arrange an International con
erence on the question of Alaskan seal

A COLOSSAL SWINDLE
By Which Insurance Companies Were
to Suffer
PITTSBURG, April 13—A colossal at
tempt at Insurance swldling was un
earthed today when C. Llnwood Woods
of C. L. Woods & Co., banker, was ar
rested in his office in the Park building.
The arrest \%as upon the information
furnished by the agent #f the Mutual
Reserve Fund Life association, charg
ing Woods with procuring policies with
intent to defraud. When Woods was
confronted by the arresting officer ho
fell In a dead faint. On recovery he
made a written confession In which he
gives the details of his scheme. He says
that with a former agent of the Reserve
he fell Into a conspiracy to defraud. His
mode of procedure was to insert adver
tisements In the local paper for old men
to act as collectors. He would ask the
aplicant for bond, but kindly waived the
bond If the applicant would sign an ap
plication for insurance on his life. This
Was generally secured. It Is not known
as yet how the applicants passed the
medical examination.
In Wood's desk were found sixty-five
policies, aggregating $200,000. Woods
had policies on the lives of his brother
and sister and his fiancee. The other
policies were all for men over 50 years of
age and Wood ttood to relize a goodly
turn In the near future. The many
policies with Woods as beneficiary
aroused suspicion and the arrest was
made before any of the losses were paid.

One Small Bout in New York and
More to Come
NEW YORK, April 13 —Tommy White
Of Chicago smd Eddy Curry of this city
were the principals In the star bout
of twenty rounds at the Broadway Ath
letic club arena tonight. The referee
decided in favor of the Chicago man.

that McCoy will be willing to meet
Creedon before the club offering the
best Inducements. Just 83 McCoy step
ped Into the ring Creedon followed him
and the two shook hands.
Tom O'Rourke then announced that he
would give $3000 or 50 per cent of the re
ceipts of the house for a "go" between
these two middle-weights. As soon as
O'Rourke made this offer Charley White,
who trained Corbett for his recent flghl
with Fltzslmmons, jumped up and said:
"I offer $4000," and Eugene Cumiskey
went him a thousand better, shouting
out: "I will give $5000." Neither White
nor Cumiskey would say what clubs
they represented, but Insisted that their
offers would be made good.
The Mojave Murders
MOJAVE, April 13.—The report from
Fanamint of the murder Friday evening
by the Indian "Pfinamint Tom," of Wil
liam J. Lander, Julius Goldsmith and
Frank Reed, and the subsequent cap
ture of the murderer, has not yet been
authenticated and the story is conse

THE OREGON INJURED
WHILE ON THE WAY TO THE
DRY DOCK
An Unnamed Officer's Statement
Scarcely Agrees With the Report
Sent to the Department
SEATTLE, April 13.—A rumor eman
ating no one knows where that the bat
tleship Oregon In going on drydock at
the naval station on Puget Sound Injured
her bottom, was tonight emphatically
denied by an officer of the station who
witnessed the docking and afterward
dined aboard the vessel while she was
in the dock. He declared that It was
the most successful docking he had ever
witnessed, and his experience in the
navy gives weight to such a statement.
A POWERFUL RUMOR
WASHINGTON, April 13.—Word
reached the navy department today from
Commander Whiting, in charge of the
Puget Sound naval station, Washing
ton, that the battleship Oregon had
grounded while approaching the dock,
into which she was to go to have her
bottom scraped and painted.
The dispatch added that the vessel had
bent her frames (or ribs) and bottom
plating in the vicinity of the forward
turret, but it did not in any other way
indicate whether the damage sustained
had been serious. This will be deter
mined by a thorough investigation,
which Secretary Long has ordered to be
made by Naval Constructor Capps, who
was the government inspector at the
Union Iron works and who had been
sent to Puget Sound with a gang of men
from the Mare Island navy yard to
scrape and paint the vessel. His orders
are to report the amount of damage
done and the estimated cost of repairs.
The impression at the navy depart
ment Is that the accident occurred some
time yesterday afternoon and that later
in the day the officers of the vessel prob
ably succeeded in getting the vessel off
the ground and inside the dock. The
Oregon had been in the water for over
a year and had been waiting for the
spring tides to take to the dock. She
w as in command of Captain Barker, who
had Just been relieved from duty at the
Mare Island yard and was on his first
voyage on the O/egon.
The Puget dock is the only one on the
Pacific coast large enough to accommo
date a ship the size of thovOregon.
The opinion of Commodore Hlckbor-i
of the construction bureau, from tha in
formation on hand, is that the damage
to the ship Is not serious, and even should
some of her frames be bent, that .iec
essarlly will not require that they be
repaired at the dock. Should this be
necessary, however, It would require
considerable time, as mechanics would
have to go there from the Mare Island
navy yard.

BONDS IN HOCK
Partly Explain the Big Bank
Failure
HALF A MILLION MORE OR LESS
SOLD OUTRIGHT OR PLEDGED AS
COLLATERAL
An Amended Bill Filed Yesterday
Bringing Many New Names
Into the Case
Associated Press Special Wire.
CHICAGO, April 13.—The disappear
ance of $400,000 endowment bonds of the
University of Illinois has caused a gen
eral scanning of securities held by the
different banking institutions In this
city, and it has been discovered that the
First National bank has In Its vaults
nearly $200,000 of the bonds. Some of
these bonds were sold outright to the
bank; otherß are held as collateral for
loans made to Spalding. Another nation
al bank is said to hold some bonds. On
Saturday, April 3, the last business day
before the failure of the Globe Savings
bank, Herbert Skinner, Spalding's pri
vate secretary, drew $15,000 from the
Globe Savings bank and deposited it in
the Northwestern bank to Spalding's
private account.
Treasurer Spalding, who was expected
to come before the meeting of the board
today and explain the disappearance of
the university bonds Intrusted to his
keeping, failed to put In an appearnace.
At a meeting, which was held behind
closed doom E. G. Keith was elected to
fill Spalding's place as treasurer. A list
was received from Spalding giving the
kind and denomination of securities he
offers to cov*r his liaoiaty tor tne en
dowment bonds.
Additional charges are made In re
gard to the alleged mismanagement of
the affairs of the Globe Savings bank in
an amended bill filed today by Chas. E.
Churchill, cashier of the defunct bank.
The bill Is part of the receivership pro
ceedings and brings into the ca3e a num
ber of persona not heretofore involved.
President Spalding's connection with
the bank Is dealt with extensively in the
amended' bill It is averred that Spald
ing induced H C. Haley to make three
promissory notes aggregating upwards
of $15,000, payable to the order of Spald
ing or the hank, upon the assurance of
Spalding that he would deposit $40,000 in
merchantable bonds as security. Spald
ing, it Is charged, used the money tot
his own benefit a»<l set apart $40,000 in
bonds.
Another section of the amended bill
says that Spalding, Edward Hayes,
Chas. J. Ford and John W. Lanehnrt,
deceased, the latter, either for himself
or ex-Governor John P. Altgeld, pur
chased a tract of land of eighty acres in
Cook county and Spalding. It Is alleged,
paid for his share of the property out of
funds of the Globe Savings' bank, and
It is also charged that Ford, Lanehart
or Altgeld knew this. Of the sum of
$103,000, which the state auditor ordered
charged to the profit and loss account of
the Globe Savings bank, It is reported
that $17,000 was an indebtedness nomi
nally due from Johr. W. Lanehart. It
Is charged, however, 'hat the last mat
ter was in fact a loan to ex-Gr,v. Altgeld.
It is also claimed In the bill that ex-Gov.
Altgeld has been transferring.his prop
erty with the Intention of keeping it
yrom the creditors of the bank.
President Spalding, Vice-President
Averlll and Cashier Churchill of the
bank put in an appearance today In the
court of Justice Hall and gave bonds for
their appearance April 19, to answer to
the charge of embezzlement preferred by
Adolpli Edelman, one of the depositors
of the bank.
SEWELL'S VIEWS
Democratic Successes the Result of
Local Causes
SAN FRANCISCO, April 18.—Arthur
Bewail, the Democratic candidate for
Vice-President in the last campaign, ar
rived from the East via the Isthmus of
Panama last night. Mr. Sewnll has been
on the water for the past thirty days and
consequently is not familiar with the po
litical happenings of that period. He said:
"I place no special significance upon the
recent Democratic successes in Eastern
cities. They were purely the result of
local influences and conditions. The peo
ple of the East are inclined to give Presi
dent McKinley and his administration a
fair trial. Business Is very much de
pressed there and should it not improve I
think the Democrats will present the
same silver issue four years hence, and I
have no doubt they will be successful. Of
course everything will depend upon the
financial condition of the country during
the next four years. The people buve been
promised bettor times, and if they do not
get them they will again demand a change
of administration."
Mr. Sewall is visiting San Frauisco on
both business and pleasure. Ho Is largely
interested in ship building in Maine,
which industry, he says, is practically
suspended. He is thinking of going to
Japan to secure some contracts from that
government for the merchant lines there,
but whether he will make the trip or not,
lie says, will depend upon business
arrangements that will develop within
the next few days.
BUTTER MAKERS
Pleased With the Prospects of a For
eign llarket
CHICAGO, April 13.-The butter trade
is greatly pleased with the determination
of Secretary of Agriculture Wilson to in
terest himself in the exportation of the
product of American creameries, as told
in Washington dispatches yesterday.
"Something has got to be done to in
crease our trade abroad," said a promi
nent merchant of this city, "for we are
beginning to produce more than we can
use at home. As I understand it, the Sec
retary merely intends to ship samples of
American butter to England for the pur
pose of experimenting. Mr. Conrad of
the Agricultural Department has, for some
time, been experimenting with devices for
pasteurising butter, cream and milk, and
It baa been his desire to have some of tbe
creameries given Into bis charge for some
time ao that he could experiment fully.
His idea Is then to take samples abroael
nnd prove that we can put up butter of
superior quality that will keep. It is
found that by pasteurizing milk It will
keep four or live days longer than milk
in which the germs have not been killed.
Butter made from pasteurized cream will
likewise keep its flavor longer.
•'lt is likely that Mr. Wilson's efforts,
in conjunction with Mr. Conrad's experi
ments, will solve the problem of a foreign
butter trade.''
Italian Indemnity
WASHINGTON, April 13.-The Presi
dent has decided to recommend to Con
gress an appropriation for an indemnity
for the killing by a mob of lynchers of
three Italian citizens at Hahnville, La.,
August Bth, lost.
Crossen Is Exonerated
An Inquest over the remains of James
Holmes, the negro who was shot and
killed at the Hammam baths early yes
terday morning by Joseph Crossen, was
held at the undertaking parlors of Orr

returned a verdict exonerating Crossen
from any blame and In a short time he

ACADEMY OF SCIENCE
INTERESTING PAPERS GIVEN
LAST NIGHT
Indian Legenda and Indian Folk-
Music, Full of Interesting and
Scientific Illustration
The Academy of Science held its regu
lar meeting at the Friday Morning club
rooms last evening, President William
Knight presiding. Two valuable papers
were presented during the evening
one on "Indian Legends," by Dr. Lor
enzo G. Yates of Santa Barbara, and
one on "Folk Music of Our American
Indians," by Prof. J. C. Fillmore of Po
mona college.
The legends of the California Indians
presented by Dr. Yates showed first how
uncivilized tribes \\ iiu have ue> Written
language, no books for disseminating
knowledge, transmit by word of mouth
from the older to the younger members
of a family the legends and traditions.
Among some tribes the legends show
thought and wisdom acquired through
many generations of ancestors, and are
clothed In grand, heroic and' poetic
language.
The California Indians lack wealth of
expression, their language is crude, and
it lacks oratorical character. The wri
ter touched on the origin of the Indian
legends of the Great Spirit, and the
supernatural powers accredited to ani
mals. The paper closed with several In
teresting legends, entitled "The Coyote
and the Bat." "The Coyote and the Tor
toise," and "How the World was Made,"
all most delightfully presented.
"The Scientific Importance of the
Folk Music of our American Aborigines"
was the title of the paper presented by
Prof. Fillmore, who touched first on the
value of ethnological and anthropologi
cal study, as well as the study of mental
life, the history, manners, customs, re
ligion and social ideas of various races
and tribes of our American aborigines.
It is patent to every one that the abor
igines of this continent are fast vanish
ing from the face of the earth, and those
who still remain must soon perish from
the memory of man. What ever is done
to preserve the unwritten records must
be done quickly, or this incomparably
important body of scientific knowledge
will have perished beyond hope of resur
rection.
After touching on the responsibility
forced upon us by circumstances, of fail
ing to see and do what lies In our power
for the posterity of the Indian, the wri
ter touched the folk-music. Prayers are
always sung not said. Every mother
teaches her child to sing, not say "Wa
kanda," I am poor and needy; have pity
on me." When he passes the border
land of childhood and youth, the prayers
must invariably be sung.
All the historical chronicles of the
tribes of the Omahas are kept in song.
Children have singing games; the young
men sing songs of love; there are songs
of thanks and songs of the medicine
men in their ministrations among the
sick. The great religious ceremony of
the "Wawam," or secret fellowship
pipes, Is a full choral service of four or
five hours' length, every act of
which is sung. Prof. Fillmore
said his largest collection of aborig
inal folk sangs was obtained from
Miss Alice C. Fletcher, a fellow in Har
vard university and an assistant of Prof.
Putnam of the Peabody Museum of
American Archaeology and Ethnology.
She spent some years in Nebraska,
studying the life of the Indians and
sang their songs with them, reducing
them to written form. Prof. Fillmore
has a large number of phonographic
records of songs of many nations, and
he illustrated his thoughts with two
Navajo songs through the phonograph,
showing the relation of primitive melody
to harmony. At the world's fair the
writer had an opportunity of making
comparisons of our Indian folk music
with that of other nations, which has led
to Important scientific results.
After the lecture a fund was estab
lished by the academy for the purpose
of sending a half-dozen young students
with Prof. Fillmore to an Indian reser
vation, 80 miles south of Hemet, during
the summer. The party goes to study
under Prof. Fillmore the folk music of
the Indians at this point and to further
add to the scentlflc Investigation. One
hundred dollars will be raised by the
academy for this purpose.
CHANGES AT WHITTIER
George B. Fessell for Assistant Super
intendent—The Captains
Gossip relative to the coming changes
in the management of the Whlttler state
school is rife and applicants for the sub
ordinate positions which are soon ex
pected to be open are numerous' George
D. Pessell, ex-councilman from the

Why Republicans Fear Debate
With the exception of metals and cotton
manufactures the ad valorem equivalent
for all the schedules is higher under the
Dingley act than under the McKinley act.
The average duty for the whole Dingley
act Is 57.03, compared to 4f.5S for the Mc-
Kinley act. and 30.M for the Wilson act.
When these things are considered, is It
any wonder the Republicans are more In
tent on applying the g.ig than in meeting
legitimate objections in free debate?—Pitts
burg Post.
The Curse of Unwise Benevolence
A great many people who hug themselves
for their philanthropy and who would on
ivo account consciously do what is wrong
are engaged in the flagitious business of
manufacturing tramps and paupers, the
raw material of criminals. The excellent
people who will not send a beggar hungry
from the door are the very people who make
the tramp possible, and not only possible
but flourishing.—Philadelphia Press.
