Exterminating the Fur Seals
Special THE HERALDExaminer Dispatch
NEW Yom Jan 24A Herald Paris
cable says The European edition of the
Herald publishes an interview held at
Cannes with Herman Liebes on the Bob
ring sea question He approves Blames
course and asserts the seals are being
hunted to death and will be exterminated
unless prompt measures are taken En
gland will then suffer also as 5000 persons
in London live by preparing the skins The
poachers with whom England sides are not
English tho crews of the Canadian sealers
are American amen Last yen fiftyone
vessels were engaged in poaching Next
season if England gives her protection
150 ships will be in the business This
means destruction to the seals
Liebes Mills and Tevis pay the govern
ment HL for every seal they kill or capture
with support for the inhabitants of the
Leopold island with medical attendance
fuel and schools The inhabitants are In
dians from Alaska numbering 400 But
for the sealing they would starve
Mr Liebes says his firm would bo willing
to abstain from killing the seals for five or six
years in order to give the animals chance
provided the others were forbidden also
The reason the seals are being extermi
nated is that those that are killed are
moBly females with young Out of 53000
skins brought to London this season by
poachers 99 per cent belonged to females
I
L
Mr Liebes does not believe there is any
danger of war in the matter It is too
small for England to fight about Last
season thirtynine Victorian vessles killed
over forty thousand seals while fourteen
American ships killed under fourteen
thousand He holds the American rights
in the sea are unquestionable as those of
Russia were never questioned A Russia

NEW YORK Jan 24Th custom house

whether theatrical cost nes scenery and

properties are tools of tiiie or not The
directions under which this aecrressive
move is to be made were contained in a let

ing assistant to Secretary Windom Spe
cial Treasury Agent Wilbur has limited his
legal inability to the seizure of large
amounts of scenery and kindred threatri
cal necessaries which have been passed
duty free through the custom houso from
time to time This time Henry Abbey or
rather the firm of Abbey Schoefel Grsu
is to be made an unwilling participant in
that annoying bugbear a test case and the
theatrical property to be levied on that to
be used in Sarah Bernhardts New York
productions
Agent Wilbur has kept his eye open and
when he heard that a large amount of
scenery properties and costumes were to
be sent over with the divine Sarah he im
mediately telegraphed to Washington for
orders When the theatrical effects arrive
they will be seized if the duty levied be not
paid Then Abbey of course will appeal
to tho hoard of general appraisers which
sits as an appellate body in this city Los
ing his case before the appraisers Mr
Abboy may carry the question into the

shall be decided by the United States su

are valued at a large sum The duty if
collected will be a substantial account

THE CLOSURE RULE
I i Vigorously Opposed by Sen
ator Stewart
SOME ELECTION BILL SPEECHES
The Silver Pool Investigation Director of the
Mint Leech Testifies Owenby Is
Found in Chicago
WASHINGTON Jan 24The Senate met
at 11 in continuation Thursdays session
The journal showed that but fortyfive
Senators were in attendance exactly a
quorum Stewart took the floor to address
tho Senate on the closure resolution but
yielded to I motion by Fry for executive
session on an assurance that it would not
occupy more than five or ten minutes
The legislative session was resumed at
1125 when Stewart offered an amendment
of which he had given notice on Thursday
last It contains three propositions the
first being to strike out of the proposed
rules the words and the question shall be
put upon the amendments if any are then
pending and upon the measure in its suc
cessive stages according to the rules of the
Sent but without debate And to sub
stitute the words and debate on pending
amendments and such amendments as may
be offered while the measure is under con
sideration shall be limited as provided un
der rule 8
Second to insert in the sentence provid
ing that no motion shall bo in order but I
motion to adjourn or take a recess the
words to recommit with or without l
instructions to lay on table etc
And the third being the clause that pend
ing proceedings under the proposed rule
rule 17 shall be suspended
Rule S referred to in the first proposi
tion provides the order of business after
the morning hour and rules 17 and 18 that
when an amendment proposed to any pend
ing measure is laid on tha table it shall bo
without prejudice to such measure
Faulkner demanded the yeas and nays on
the amendment and they were ordered
Stewart then argued against the rule and
election bill The principles of the latter
i carried into effect would be more preju
dicial to human liberty than secession
itself because secession would have still
retained the local governments He went
on to argue at length against the constitut
ionality of tho bill
The proposed rule he said could not be
adopted without violation of all rules and
without taking the floor from some Senator
entitled to it Those who opposed such pro
ceedings stood by the precedents of the
United States for one hundred years and
3ears
the precedents of Great Britain for five
hundred years And these precedents never
theseprecepents
had been violated except in one single in
stance when violated to suppress the home
rule struggle in Ireland I the rules of
the Senate were violated Senators would
hear a louder voice than they heard in the
last election In conclusion Stewart ap
pealed to the Republican Senators to pause
in their mad career before they stepped
over the precipice and destroyed their I
party
At tho close of Stewarts speech
Sanders took the floor but yielded
Aldrich who asked unanimous consent
first to limit debate t half nn hour then to
limit the length of speeches one hour
each and then to have a vote taken Mon
day next TO eacn or these requests as
made objection was made on the Demo
cratic side Sanders then proceeded with
his speech
Sanders then proceeded with his speech
in advocacy of the proposed rule and of
the election bill He reminded the Dem
ocratic Senators that there was a differ
ence between freedom of debate and un
limited debate He declared the election
bill was a bill of peace I might be beaten
but that would be simply postponing the
question beaten then Congress would
adjonrn on the 4th March next leaving a
deep and grievous wrong rankling in the
bosoms of 10 per cent of the people of the
country and with a consciousness that in
justice was being perpetrated in the light
of day
Referring to the newspaper opposition
to the bill Sanders said no newspaper had
been appointed a tribunal to express the
popular will Their opinions were as va
viable as the shades by the light of the
quivering aspen made He did not know
how better to characterize the condition of
the public sentiment which they produced
than to call it a condition of moral clammi
ness The people themselves had how
ever expressed with no uncertain sound
in the national platform of the Republican
can party their purpose and desire that
the amendments to the constitution shall
stand as a bulwark and shield against all
forms of nnnrpsqfnn A mnttpr hnnr tinm
ble the individual oppressed might be
Morgan spoke in opposition to the pro
posed rule Some Senators made them
selves conspicuous in uttering calumnies
against the south but the south has not
used money in their elections although
silver dollars would do much in carrying
elections there because what was it that
could not bo bought of the Republican
party in the south I How was it on the
other side of the line What was the
meaning of those disgusting expressions
which emanated from a Republican per
haps a Senatoras to frying fat out of
manufacturers and blocks of fvel What
was the meaning of those enormous sub
scriptions of money made by men and to
men Jas trustees who stood at the very
head of the church 1 What a wonderful
development of modern piety sanctity and
purity What use was made of that
money I There could not be any question
I was for corrupt use
Recess was taken until Monday

m AIR OF imm
Still Surrounds Case of Jennie
Szirmay
HER UNHAPPY HOME IN HUNGABY
So Soon as the Search For Her In New York
Began She Suddenly Disappeared
A Family History
Speclalto THE HERALD Examiner Dispatchl
NEW YORK Jan 24The story of the
search made throughout this city by Count
George of the Hungarian house of Szirmay
for a young girl who before her marriage
in this city with a barber went by the
name of Jennie Szirmay has not yet been
fully told In fact there Is much about the
case that is enveloped with mystery as with
a garment Yet the following facts are
beyond cavil or dispute
There was until New Years day in this
city a young girl for whom the count was
searching To find her the count landed in
New York on January 3 Within ten days
of his arrival her whereabouts were known
When he looked for her he could not lint
her And just here arises the mystery
The Count Szirmay who was a chamber
lain to the Emperor of Austria could not
be the reputed father of the girl in question
for firstly this Count SsSrmuy whose
proper name is Szirmay Bezenyo never
had any children Secondly ne has been
dead for some years His history Is welt
known He was detested by the Hunga
rians because together with Count Zirchy
he conducted the Russian army into Hun
gary to suppress with barbarous ferocity
the gallant struggle for liberty which the
Hungarians made in lb4S under Kossuth
Zichy was murdered by Hungarian gypsies
and Szirmay fled to Paris but returned
after many years and was created a
chamberlain by the Austrian court Ho
died leaving a widow Gabrielle who live
in BudaPesth but mostly in Vienna her
palace being in Frankenberg gasso S A
branch of this family a younger brother
whose name is Josef hadlanded possessions
in the immediate neighborhood of the
chamberlain possessions namely at Szirma
a few miles from Miskole in Hungary
This Count Szirmay had a daughter named
Zanka which might be translated into
Jennie in English This girl went to school
at Miskoiez This Count Josef Szir
may also had a wife from whom
he was separated and who together
her husband were of doubtful morality
He also was much in debt He is not iden
tical with either Alfred Szirmay and
George Szirmay both members of the
Hungarian second chamber living at Buds
Pesth Furthermore there are three more
noblemen of minor degree who live in
BudaPesth One is Andre Szirmay a
high police official another is Antal Szir
may a professor and a third is Alex Szir
may a post official It seems therefore
the Count Szirmay who was in New York
seeking for his child answers the descrip
tion of thcjyouneer brother orj relative of
Chamberlain SirinayBezenyo and whose
landed possessions were at Szirmay and
that his daughter Zanier may be the girl
Jennie
According to this officiall statement
Count Szirmay is not married United
States Marshal Bernhard believed when
he was working up the case and still be
lieves that the lost girl he was seeking
was this counts daugnter He says too
that the case was put into his hands by the
Austrian counsel in New York who had
received advices from abroad with instruc
tions to learn if possible whether she was
in this city
Marshal Bernhard located the girl Its i
question and told her her father was
coming to this country to reclaim her She
told the United States marshal that she did
not care to go back to Hungary Evi
dently she was in earnest for she disap
peared entirely The Austrian consul Mr
Anton Von Polutisrhek does not deny the
tact that uount ueorge Szirmay was m this
city two weeks ago But ho is unwilling
to throw any satisfactory light on the
mystery All the investigation on foot to
day only fortifies her strange life here
That was partly told yesterday She was
a public charge in the Charity hospital at
least three times in the past two years
and ever since her landing In this city in
July 1SS3 she has lived tho erring
migratory life of a woman against
whose face all decent doors are
shut No wonder the count went back
home after its conclusion with the feeling
that it was better never to look upon the
girls face again After such a story as
tho search revealed it was impossible ever
to redeem her What was his object To re
deem her She was not nis child
Joseph Monderer is the barber who says
he married Jennie and showed a certifi
cate to prove it They lived together four
months when Jennie left the house and has
not been seen since by her husband Tho
barber seems to enjoy the notoriety his
wife has attained
No said Mpnderer I have no cause
to ask for a divorce and even if I had I
would not seek one I love her dearly and
know that she loved me so I um ready to
stick to her through thick and thin Now
that I learn she is a countess very natur
ally I do not want to separate from her
added the barber with unconcious numor
because I honor her for her position
Did she ever say anything about her
former life
After we were married replied Mon
derer I 1 asked her to come home with mo
to Europe but she did not seem to want to
go Today I wrote a letter to my parents
and enclosed all the newspaper clippings
about the story Of course I have not
written to my fatherinlaw the count
continued the barber willingly and import
antly because I do not know him but T
am sure he would change his opinion if be
knew Jennie was honestly married He
may recognize me as his soninlaw but if
he does not choose to do so and wishes to
procure a divorce why let him pay for it
I am willing to take the cash
It is said Jennie is now in Philadelphia
