It Is Discussed by the Senate in
Seoret Session.
It Is Believed That tho Treaty Will Bo
Ratified All the employes of the Sen
ate Excluded from tho Kxccutlvo Ses
sion. Washington, March 20. Tho senate
of the United States again devoted itself
to the Behring sea arbitration treaty
yesterday, but did not take action on it.
From the character of tho discussion
and the disposition shown by tho sena
tors who took part in it, thero is every
reason to believe that tho debato hai
about reached its conclusion and that n
vote will be taken early next week with
the ratification of the treaty as a re
sult. Thi3 is tho situation in a nut
shell. Following out its plan of Thursday in
its fruitless attempt to prevent the pro
ceedings in executive session from being
made public, the senate yesterday again
cast suspicion on the venerable Captain
Bassett, Executive Clerk Young and
other trustworthy employes who have
never been known to or even suspected
of betraying an executive secret, by ex
cluding all employes with the exception
of General McCook, the secretary of the
senate and Mr. Vallany tne, the sergeant-at-arms,
from the chamber during the
secret session. There was much indig
nation expressed in the Capitol at the
exclusion, and it is certain that the em
ployes themselves, particularly Captain
Bassett, who has served continuously
for sixty-three years in tho service of
the senate, feel keenly tho stigma of
suspicion cast upon them, although none
of them have expressed themselves on
the subject.
Immediately after tho routine busi
ness of the morning had been finished
tho senate, at 12:30 o'clock, went into
secret session on- motion of Mr. Sher
man, and when the employes were ex
cluded and the doors closed the arbitra
tion treaty was taken up.
Mr. Felton, of California, made a vig
orous onslaught on the treaty. To rat
ify, he said, would be a virtual sur
render of our rights acquired from Rus
ria under the Alaska purchase treaty of
1807. Ratification, he contended, would
be manifest disrespect towards Russia,
and he believed that the friendly f eelinj
existing between that country and the
United States would be strained if rati
fications weie exchanged.
Mr. Felton was supported by several
senators from the far west, but the con
tingent was very small and did not have
much weight. The element that proved
so strong Thursday that which held
that the modus Vivendi should be re
newed before tho treaty was ratified
again came to tho front, Senators Frye,
Butler, Teller, Chandler and others sus
taining the position of thi3 faction. This
element was strongest during Thurs
day's debate, but it showed signs of fall
ing off in the discussion yesterday after
noon. Mr. Sherman counseled a conserva
tive course and made a strong argument
in favor of a ratification of the treaty
without restriction. He contended that
England would never agree to exchange
ratification under a threat of refusal to
allow tho ratification to become effect
ive until the modus vivendi was re
newed. He pointed out to the senate
tho advantage that would bo derived by
tho United States if ratification were
agreed to peaceably and without restric
tion. Ho thought it for the best inter
ests of this country that the Benate
should do nothing unfriendly, in order
that England would be compelled to
take the initiative in the matter, thus
throwing the responsibility on that
government for any trouble that might
Several senators made tho contention
that the senate should support the presi
dent by passing a resolution strengthen
ing him in his position, and quite a
formidable contingent developed m sup
port of this view. Mr. Sherman, Mr.
Morgan and Mr. Gray combatted it,
however, contending that the president
did not need advice; that he kn'ow what
was best to do, and that the passage of
such a resolution would appear like a
threat to Great Britain and thus place
the United States iu the position of hav
ing made the first hostile movement.
When the Benato concluded tho dis
cussion after it had been behind closed
doors for nearly two and a half hours,
it had taken no action on the treaty or
on any of the propositions relating to
it, but there was a general feeling that
it had been fully discussed, and that
next week a voto on tho main question
could be taken. There was a general
belief that tho treaty would be ratified
then without restriction.
Officials Ilusy Preparing Our Cnso for
tho Arbitrators.
Washington, March 20. Tho officials
at tho state department, charged with
the duty of preparing the case of tho
United States for tfye arbitrators on tho
Behring sea"1 controversy aro busily en
gaged theso'days. General J. W. Foster
is In almost constant conference with
Mr. Frank Partrigo, tho solicitor of tho
department, and Mr. J. Stanley Brown,
who yisitod the seal islands lastyoar,as
special agent of the government, and
Mr. Ivan Fetroff, who was special con
susogentin Alaska, have joined Pro
fessors Mendo'nhall and Merriam. the
Behring sea commissioners, in aiding
General Foster in preparing and arrang
ing tho data upon which this govern
ment will present and rest its case.
This will include tho formal report of
Professors Mendgnhall and Merriam,
which is not yet ruuy completed, ana a
vast deal of evidence and information
collected by them and Messrs. Brown
and Petroff.
Tho cabinot meeting yesterday was
not exciting, hardly interesting in a
news sense. fThero was nothing to do
in the Behring sea matter, and it was
discussed only informally. There was
no truth in the rumor, which found
circulation during tho afternoon, that
Lord Salisbury had replied to tho presi
dent's note of tho 22d, tho last in the
correspondence recently published.
Likewise, a cabinot officer staved there
was no truth in the statement published
in the New York Times to the effect
that the Russian minister had notified
the president tiiat his government would
increase the Russian fleet in Behring
Two Peoplo Badly Bitten at Indian
npolls. Indianapolis, March 20. The north
eastern part of the city i3 greatly excited
over the biting of Annie White and
Herman Schwear Thursday night by a
rabid dog. Tho animal was frothing at
the mouth ond Miss White attempted to
drive him from the yard, when he at
tacked her and lacerated her right hand
badly. It then jumped over the fence
and ran down tho street. Mr. Schwear
was returning home from his work and
met the dog on tho sidewalk. The ani
mal leaped upon him and closed his
teeth upon his right hand, piercing it
through tho palm.
Several other persons were attacked,
and a woman had her clothing torn in
shreds by the vicious animal yesterday.
Schwear's wound proved very painfrl
and his friends are very uneasy about
him. His arm is swollen to the
shoulder and his hand is badly dis
colored. He is trying a madstone to
the wound. Miss White is not suffer
ing as much pain as Schwear, but will
also try the stone. Tho dog was killed
Burial Postponed.
Springfield, O., March 20. Wednes
day morning the infant son of Mr. and
Mrs. Farrow was found dead in bed.
The funeral services were stopped in a
very sensational manner yesterday.
Coroner Austin walked in and forbade
the removal of the body until an investi
gation is made of charges preferred by
the child's mother against her husband.
She claims that he strangled the child
to death. There has been lll-feelingbe-tween
the pair for some time, and Far
row claims that Joe Lyman is the father
of the child. It is currently reported
that he had threatened to kill tho infant
to get even with her. .
Looks Like a Murder.
Indianapolis, March 20. Thursday
night James B. Swain was arrested for
drunkenness, but it soon developed that
something more serious ailed him. He
grew rapily worse during tho night and
at 8 o'clock yesterday mornintr died. An
examination showed that he had been
struck on tho head with a blunt instru
ment, and the detectives have learned
that he had domestic troubles and that
n male companion of his wife had some
trouble with him. There is evidence
that tho men met and had a conflict.
Swain was a prosperous fanner of West
Falls, about forty miles from here.
Strikers' Last Warning.
Memphis, March 20. Tho strike of
the yard switchmen of tho Memphis
and Charleston railroad continues. The

men's Mutual Aid association, and the
order has been given that no freight
cars of the Memphis and Charleston
road are to be handled by other railroad
companies. This action was determined
upon Wednesday night, soon after the

been made to fill the places of the
strikers, but it is stated that if tho

Slight KHVct on the Money Markot.
Business Fnilurcs.
New York, March 20. R. G. Dun &
Company's review of trado says: With
unusually conflicting signs the confid?nce
which prevails in business circles is still
unabated. Prices of commodities as a
whole have declined three-fourths of 1
per cent, during the week, and aro now
18 per cent, lower than a year ago at
this time.
At Boston bad weather affects the dry
goods trade, which is yet quite satisfac
tory. Cotton machinery is well em
ployed, the boot and shoe factories busy
with n large number of buyers in the
markot, rubber goods very active with
works employed overtime, and sales of
wool fair in amount though the market
favors buyers. At Bridgeport hardware
is flourishing, the output of rubber
goods light, and trade in corsets, brass
ware and bui'ding materials active. At
Hartford the wool trade is fair, hard
ware quiet, and there is no improvement
in groceries or dry goods.
At Philadelphia sales of dry goods are
Bmallor than of late, though equal to
last year's, wool very quiet, trcde in
chemicals steady and in oils fairly ac
tive, but other trades are quiet, with
plateglass extremely low in price. At
Baltimore manufactures of cotton duck
and architectural iron are busy with
abundance of orders. At Cincinnati
machinery is briskr surpassing the trade
of former years, and retail business
brighter. At Cleveland rolling mills are
full of work, though at prices 10 to 15
per cent, lower than ever before, busi
ness in dry goods and hardware is
good, and in other braches fair. At De
troit trade is equal to last year's, but has
no snap.
At Chicago increase is seen in receipts
of breadstuffs, dressed beef, cheese and
butter, but decrease in provisions, cat
tie, hides and wool. Merchandise sides
are equal to last year's. Unfavorable
weather affects spring trade at Mil
waukee, and seriously hampers trade at
St. Louis, though the feeling is hopeful.
At Minneapolis trade is good, though
flour is very dull, and at St. Paul busi
ness is brisk, at Omaha very active, and
at Kansas City improving in retail busi
ness, though receipts of cattle and hogs
are light. Improvement is seen at Den
ver and also at Louisville, hut Memphis
reports no improvement; Montgomery n
moderate trade, and Savannah some de
cline. At Now Orleans business is quiet,
though there is a better movement of
cotton, and sugar is active.
Tho iron trade shows n better tone in
Bpite of very low prices. Larger sales of
pig aro reported since the recent de
cline, and there is less pressure to sell,
bessemer iron being steady at $14.50 at
Pittsburg. Structural iron is fairly
active with better piospects, bar iron is
more active and there is improved de
mand for plates. The stronger market
for copper here and abroad is counted
proof that a combination has been
formed. Tin is stronger, and lead fairly
active at 4.15 cents. The coal trade is
hesitating, much affected by doubt
whether the New Jersey bill, legalizing
the combination, will be signed by the
governor. Tho woolen manufacture is
doing unusually well for the seasor
though very low prices and sharp foroigu
competition in some branches are sori
ously felt. Tho cheapness of cotton
helps tho manufacture the more be
cause tho demand fairly sustains the
price of goods.
But for the uncertainty how far for
eign relations will' affect money and
business hero, the general confidence in
the future of trade would seem to be
