THE SEALS, "COHRF.SPONDENCE WITH GREAT BRITAIN MADE PUBLIC. llio i'residout Insists ljiou tlio Modus Vivendi Sullsbury's Plan That wo Tnko ISomta From 1'oachluc Seniors Not Worthy of Anj Serious Consideration, WamiinYjio.v, March 21. Tlis following Is na abstract of tbo Into correpouJonco betiveau Ilia United fcitntej nnd Grout IJrlt ain respecting tbo Boring tea controversy, transmitted liy the president .March L'ii: February lij, Sir Juiiati 1'auucofota wroto Mr. Hlnlna that, In his opinion, tbo lirltish commissioners aw ribt ill boldiuc that, thoy havo no power under tboir pro.-ent mandate to discuss the (luoitlon of n modus Vivendi for tbo next fishery suison, that their au thority is confined to reporting their viows on what lisiiery regulations of u permnuont character may bo necessary with a view to arbitration; tbnt tho queiou of u modU3 vivendl, pending tho resuyot tho arbitra tion, Is ono for tbo two governments to dis cus. March 10, Sir Julian Pauncafoto com municated to Mr. Wharton a telegram from Lord ballsbury, which stales, in effect: "Lord tjalisbury again points out that the information in tint i osse.'sion of her majesty's government doe, net lend thoin to believo that another year f suspeubiou of tuuling is neecisjarv to prov.'iit nil uuduo diminution of tho seal herds.' Ilia krdshir, however, proceed-: to ob serve tunt Layoud this question it is consid ered by your government that thoy havo a right to be protected from tho loss which they may incur roni free smiling being permitted this year, in the event of their claim to Uorlng son being upheld by the nrbiiratcrs. Ho states that her majesty's government does not dispute that after tbo ratification of the convention thoio will lie somo foun dation for this contention, but ho adds that the prohibition of all scaling as u remody has this defoct, that tho British seniors ex cluded from Boring saa would havo an un doubted ground of complaint if the Brit ish claim should bo upheld by the arbitra tors. Sorious damage w ould bo caused to tin industry by a suspension of sealing for a. long period. In mow ot the above consideration!! ltap poars to her majesty's government that it would bo more equitable to provido that soaling in Bering sea shall continue on tho condition that tho owner of every soaling vessel shall give security for satisfying any damages which the arbitrators may judge." March 22, Mr. Whurtcm wrote air Julian Fauncefoto: "Much further protraction of this discussion will make any modus vlvondi that may be agreed upon ineffectual to pro tect the interests of tho United Btatos and will givo to the Cauad.au sealers practical immunity by reason of the impossibility of communicating to them tho agreed restric tions. It is known to this government that the scalers havo hastened thoir departure to escape notico of a possible modus vlvondi and that every day almost adds to tho Heat that must now bo overhauled at sou. Already 47 Canadian vessels have cleared for the sealing grounds nnd are engaged in following up and destroying the seal herds. Tboso vessels will if not stopped and turned back at tho passes go into the Bering sua and pursuo to tho very shores of our islands tho slaughter of tho mother seals seeking the accustomed rookeries to be delivered of thoir young. This is n crime against nature. This govornmaut oxpects to show, if tho arbitration proceeds, that female Seals con ttitute the larger per cent of thu catch of tbo pelagic sealers. That in view ot this sorious and confident contention of this government his Lordship should assume that 'nnothor 3-ears' suspen sion of such scaling is not necessary,' to prevent an undue diminution of the soil herds and should insist that pending nn arbitration it shall go oa, precisely as If no arbitration had baon agreed upon, it is sur prising as it is disappointing. If nor mnjssty's government so littlo re tpects the claims and contentions of this government an to be unwilling to forbear for a single teason to disregard them, tho president cannot understand why Lord Sal isbury should have proposed and agreod to givo to those claims the dignity and stand ing which a reference to a high court of ar bitration implies. From the moment arbi tration win agreed upon neither party was at liberty to disre;;ard the contentions of tho other. It must bo npsuuicd that the sincere pur pose or tno two governments was to pro mote pence and good will, but if, pending me uruiirituou, enner noais W'ltn tue BUb ject ot it solely upon the basis of its own contention and in utter disregard ot the claims of tho other. Ibis friendly cud ;'s not only uttalned but a now sense of injury nnd injustice is added, oven if it should be found possible to proceed with an arbitration under such conditions. If her majesty's government proceeds during this sealing season upon tho basis ot its contention as to the rights ot tho Cana dian sealers no choice U left to this govern ment but to procood upon tho basis of its comment contention that polngic soallnE in tbo Bering sen is an infraction, ot its juris- uicuon ana property rlgnts. In tbo opinion of tho piosidout it would discrodit iu tho oyos of tbo world tho two great governments involvod if the paltry prollts of a single soasou should bo allowed to tbwait ov oven to disturb tbo honornblo and friondiy adjustment of their dlll'erenco. which is so nearly concluded; but, if bis iornsnip snail aunero to Ills rofusn to units with us in prompt nnd effective measure) to stop polajic foaling, and shall Insist upon free sealing for British subjocts, the question us u nnecis tins governs nt is no lonor one of pecuniary lessor i;nm, but ono of uonor anu seu-respect. This aovornmont nanviibvlandlng the fact that its right to take seals upon tho Pribyllof islands is undisputed and wholly uninvoived in tbo arbitration has propoiod 10 iaiio no prom irom tuo ijland cntcb, but to limit tho taking ot seals to tho neoeasi. ties ot tno nativo3 oc taoso islands, nnd it cannot consont that with indemnity or wiiDow, me coiuo3icu rignts ot British sub jects to eaten seals in tho Bering sen shall ue exercised ponding the arbitration. Tho prosidont finds it dllllcult to heliavn that Lord Ballsbury is serious In proposing bum, una i;uveruuiBiit snail lauo separate Liunuu irum inu owners or nliout ono hun dred Canadian soaling vessels to indemnify it for tho injury thoy may sovornllv inflict upon our jurisdiction or property, and must uciiuu iu m.ouss u suggestion which only Ms rofpect for Lord HiiUsbury and his belief mat nit lorusuip mis due upnraclitloa of the gravity of this discussion enable him to treat witn senousuojs. o should doubtless havo to Dursua and capture upon the sea many of tho owners ot those vessels to secure tho bonds suggested and as tho condition is to be that the ohligers shall pay "any damar.es which tho arbitrn tors may adjudge" whllo tbo treaty gives the arbitrators no power to adjudge any dnmugof. tlfo tnausactlons would bo without tifk to the dblitfet's untl o no yalus to us. This government cauuot consent to bnvo what Itbelloves to bo its right destroyed or Impaired pending thoir determination by nn agreed tribunal however inadequato tho security offered. Tho reference in my last uoto to tho in consistency of her majesty's government iu donylng responsibility for the note ot tho Canadian seniors was not intondod to sug gest n willlugnoss on our part under any circumstances to see our property converted into a claim for damages, and particularly as such n claim cauuot now be board or de termined by tho arbitrators without a re formation of tho treaty for hlslordshlp must remember that while he now offers what he mistakenly calls security for satisfying any damages which the arbitrators may ad judgo, he has already carried his point In tho treaty that tho arbitrators shall havo no Jurisdiction to award any damages. As to his lordship's suggestion that Cana dian sealers may have some claim for com pensation it Great Britain shall restrain pelagic soaling, tho president directs me to say that he is not able to see bow the cltl- zous or subjects of either of tho treaty pow ers can by any rule of law or equity support any claim against their respactivo govern ments growing out of bucIi necessary trade restraints as the governments may lawfully impose to promote tho larger consideration of public good and International peace. Tho president directs mo to say In cguclu sion that the modus ot last year is the least that this govornmont can accept. Ha does not desire to protract this discussion, and bavin;; now i'i the most friendly spirit sub mitted tbo considerations wliich support the just demand of this government that the property, which is the subject ot an agreed arbitration, shall not bo subjected to spo liation pending the arbitration, ho expresses hopo that Lord aalivbury will glvea prompt and friendly as, out to renew the modus. Tho president will hear with regret that her majesty's government continues to as sert a right to deal with this Bubjeot pre cisely ns if no provision had been made for a settlement of the dispute; nnd in that event this government as has already been pointed out will bo compelled to deal with the subject upon the same basis, mid to Use every means iu its power to protect from destruction or serious injury property and jurisdictional rights which it has long claimed and enjoyed." SALISBURY'S PLAN TO BE ACCEPTED Iho I'resWlftut U 111 Meet tho EiikIWIi l'ruilor Half U'uv. AV.inxriTO.v, March 28. It is said on good authority that tho prosidont and bis cabinet nro well pleased with the concilia tory tone of Lord ballsbury s uoto of the 2(itli, especially as it is held to concede the pomt that hns Leen the principal cause of contention, viz., u renewal of the modus Vivendi ot last year for the protection ot the seal llaheries. 'Ibis alleged concession is bo lievod to beimiliedin his proposition to ngreo to a modus, in case the treaty of arbi tration is ratified, under the condition that each government shall guarantee the other for damage.) Incurred through the suspen sion of sealing operations. Ono oihci.il, who has been consulted by tho president in regard to the negotiations, said ho was especially ploasod with Lord Salis bury':! admission that Great Brituin would hold itself liable for damages resulting to the United States becnuse of the modus vlvcndi in the ovent that tho verdict of tho arbitrators is adverse to its contention. Ho said that taking it altogether Lord Salis bury s nolo is satisfactory as Indicating a good prospect for an amicable settlement of tho questions at issue. I'urthor correspondence will ba necessary to settle the method of determining the character of damage claims. Olliciuls who are informed oa the subject estimate tho seal catch of Ciinndliii poach ers in Boring sea last season at "b,0UU skins. This is oxcluslvo of the number of seals killod and not captured mid tbo pups who starved to death on tho islands because of tbo slaughter of their mothers at sea. The catch during 1890 was slightly less than in 1811 1 , and in 1SS0 was leas tnun iu 1&00. Too fact that the catch iu lblll, when sealing in Bering sea was wholly prohibited, was larger than in 18'JO, when it was only partially restricted, is explained by tho fact tbnt there were many moro vessels engaged in sealing in lS'Jl than in tho previous year. Those ilgures toud to indicate the amount of damages the United States would be required to pay in case this government ajrees to Lord Sal isbury's proposition for a modus viveudi, with an indemnity liability In tbo event that the arbitrators decide against tho United States on tho question of its juris dictional rights in Bering sea, On tho other hand, if the arbitrators de- cido against tho contention of Great Britnin, that government will be liable for the claims of tho lcorth American Commercial company against tho United States for non performance of contract, otc. By this con tract the catch was limited to OU.OOO skins tlio lirst year and 100, 0J0 oaca tmbsoquont year. Ludcr tho terms of tho modus Vivendi tho company was restricted to 7,oOU skins.

Londo.v, March 211. Cable dospitchos giving tho drift of tho Bering sea corres pondence na laid before tho United Stntos Senato bare incited tho liberal leaders to adopt an attitude of opposition on tho ques tion. A week ago the llbercl loaders wero incllnod to support Lord Salisbury, and tho liberal organs until yesterday took n vlow adverse to tbo position of the United States government. But now tho wbolo tenor of opinions ox pressed In tho lobby ot the Houso of Com mons Indicates that tho opposition tnonus to seize the chunco to arraign Lord Salisbury as pursuing a needlessly vexatious course, instead of assenting to the reasonable ar rangement offered by the Washington gov ernment. To-morrow's Speaker, Mr. Gladstone's organ, will contain nn "inspired" article, which, after analysing expert evidence on seal killing, maintains that tho renewal ot the modus vlvondi ought to bo assented to by the British government, and continues: "Why should the government ba asked to promote the success of American adven turers who deliberately undertako a dangerous speculative onterpriso of doubtful legality and of doubtful utility to mankind ' At tho out-ido tho capital and outllt of those adventurers amount to 130,000 pounds. Their slice might make tho fur seal na extinct as the "Dodo" and it the existence ot tho seal is atstilte, how can dnmnges be measured:? Wo are not going to warwltli tho United States not oven in the iuterest of the feder ation of the entire; and during the pending arbitration, it is unjust to roluse to continue tbo rrrangement which was prrt of tho condition under which arbitration was ngru;d on." Tho unionist orgau "Tho Spectator," takos the government's side, but will havo only a brief note, advocating a tottlement that will open tho sea to Canadian sealers, with n provision for recompense to tho Americans in tbo event of the decision of the arbitrators being against Great Britain. Lord Salisbury's reply to l'resident Har rison's letter outllt to havo been in tho pos s8sion of tho Washington cnbieut to-day. The belief of the tuner ministerialist circle is that Lord Salisbury will njroo to place au embargo on Canadian sealing In tbo open sea provided the I'nlted States government agrees to pay comp msatiou if the arbitra tion decision bo against the American claims. Whatever may be tho issue, the idea of nn armed collision is dismissed on nil sides here ns supremely improbable. To night s cable despatches giving a for midable list of tbo l.'ulted States cruisers and revenue vessels preparing for Bering on are received with incredulous surprise. Within the Houso ot Commons iuterest in the matter centres solely iu the question of how much party advantage may bj derivod from the controversy. Outside of .Parlia ment popular interest iu tbo Bering sea question is very slight. Replies to inquiries made at the admiralty do not support the rumors tnat orders have been sent to Admiral Hotham altering the movements of the I'ucilic squadron. The officials know nothing of nuy change in the programme since it was llxod on January 27 and con tinned March 2. SENDING OUT THE FLEET. Larpjo dumber or V(msu1s to He Assigned to llei-lnj; Sen.

All tbo other members were prompt in attendance.

THE ARBITRATION TREATY Will not he Untitled Unless tho -Modus Vivendi s Itunewed. Washington, March 25. Tho Senato in secrot session this afternoon reached a prac tical agreement to ratify tho Bering sea arbitration treaty with n provision that tho ratiiicatlon shnll not tuke effect till an ngreemont bud been reached oa tho modus Vivendi issue. Ho formal action was taken on tho tteaty and it wtnt over until Mon day In order that absent senutors might bo notified to bo prosont on that day, thus al lowing a full voto to bo had. BEFORE THE SENATE. frantically Understood that tue Arbitra tion Treaty Will be Untitled To.ilny. Washington, March 28. Lord Salis bury's la.t communication to tho prosidont stntlng tho grounds upon which ho would consent to renew tho modus vlvondi as to Bering sea, was laid before tha Sonnto iu ex ecutive Bosjion to-day. Iu transmitting tho paper to tho Senate, tha president stated that Lord Salisbury's reply was very satis factory to this govornmont and that ho was preparing r. suitable loply. Tho character of this rosponso would indicate in tha presi dents' letter as being a substantial accep tance of Lord Salisbury's teuder with a few modifications tbnt could doubtless bo ar ranged without dlfllculty. Tho rocoption of tbo communication hns largely removed any doubt ot tho favorable- action of tho Senate upon tho treaty, and when nn adjournment was hud, it was tho general belief that tba treaty would bo rutilled to-morrow, without any couditlous or resolutions that might operate to defeat tho completion of tho negotiations. Thero is still an olemout In tho Senate that per sists In urging tho adoption of a resolution requiring tlio president to withhold the ex cliNiiie ot ratifications until the modus Viv endi Is renewed. One view, put forth by a Western sena tor, has won many adherents to the treaty. It was that the United States had every thing to gain and unfiling to loso by the ratiiicatlon of the tnnty. Assuming the worst polblo outcouid at tho urbitrution a decision ngalnsj the Lnltod States, ono each ot tho points submitted It was argued that there still lomalued enough ot value iu tho seventh nrtlclo of the treaty to wnrraut its rat Ideation. That article pledgos Groat Britain to co operate with the United States in tl o pro tection of the seal ilshorios under regulallonj to be formulated by the arbitrators. Much of the debate to-day was devoted to the question ot tho dnmnges that might Lo awarded by tbo arbitrators for or aguiust this country. Senators familiar with tho subject cited figures to Bbow that the poach ers securod 05,000 soai skins last your, which meant the dostruction of over 1100,000 seals, as only n small proportion of tho total number of senls killod nt iox are recovered. But it was thought tbnt not moio than 10,000 skins wero taken iu Baring soa prop er, and taking tbo govornmont valuation of $10 per skin, the damngo wo could claim for last year's operations ot tbo poachers would not be considerable. But tbo loss sustained by tho Canadian vossol owners, assuming that they wero illegally excluded from tbo seal waters, must have been much larger than our own.

Small this attornoon whoii the horrible spectacle was seen of a man lying uncon scious on his berth, carved almost beyond recognition. Tbo man was a Chinaman and the attack on him was niado by his infu rlated countryman with n dirk knife 15 Inches long. This wa the cook of the vos sol nnd bis assailant nns the steward. Capt. Howes said that three weeks ago tho steward showed syinptons of Insanity and tried to kill himself, whon he was pitied in irons and conllued botween decks, An examination being made a largo quantify of opium wns found. After a week's confinement the cjok suc cessfully interceded with the Captain to lib erate him, but hj was found ono night in tho mate's room with a hatchot wnilo tho latter was asleep. Ho had previously been in the captain's cabin, but on bis wilo'j nwakouiug, left. Tho captnin having renj sous to believo that a conspiracy was going on, nrmod himself with a revolver, but everything wont nlong smoothly until 2 o'clock Tuesday morning last, when the mate, rushing into tho cabin, said the stow ard was killing tho cook in the galley. The captain and otlicors, together with tho watch on deck, broke open tha gnlloy, when they found both men on tho lloor and the steward with n knifo and butcher's axo was chopping tho cook to pieces. Tue stew ard retreated to the stateroom and fastened tho door. The wounded man was taken into tho cabin, wbeie ho told tho captain the steward had planned w ith nun to kill all the otllccrs, together with tho lady, and soizj tha ship. This he had tlrat consented to, but later re coiled from the murderous plot, which in furiated his country mini and led him to commit his rash deed. The steward sauiug his plan bad been frustrated committed suicide. Tbo recovery or the cook is doubt ful. The crew said tbnt tliey kuaw nothing of tho murderous scheme of the steward.
