CORRESPONDENCE ON BEHR
INQ SEA QUESTION.
THE PRESIDENT'S PROPOSALS
His Determination to Bring About
a Closed Soason Has tho De
sired Effect British' Gov
ornmont's Reply.
JJy National Press Association.
Washington, Jnno 2. Tho President
has made publlithalatesl correspondence
touching the Behrlng Sea question.
Tho hearing of this new Instalment of
Behrlng Sea liternturo can only bo prop
erly understood by going back to what
occurred a year ago. Then tho Presi
dent, acting upon his viow of Amorican
rights In Behrlng Soa and the uniform
construction placed by this Government
upon tho acts of Congress for tho protec
tion of tho fur seal, undertook to excludo
Canadian sealing vessols from Behrlng
Soa by force. Thcroupon Lord Salisbury,
failing to change the purpose of tho
Presidont, caused this Government to bo
advised that until somo mutually chosen
arbitrator should decido that Behrlng Sea
belongs to the United States, tho right of
British vessels to tako seals in that sea
would bo dofendod by such means as Her
Majesty's government possessed.
Upon this notification the President
sought to induco Lord Salisbury to pro
hibit sealing by British vessels till could
bo determined whether the United States
was right or wrong In claiming to con
trol the (oal fishery. Lord Salisbury
offered to do so provided tho President
would agreo to an lmmedlato arbitration
of the disputed question of Jurisdiction
and to pay damages if dofeatcd in tho
arbitration.
Tho Presidont would not consent to
this, but ordered tho revenue cruisers
not to molest tho British sealers. At tho
lato session of Congress tho President
laid tho wholo matter boforo that body,
which took no action upon It. Tho
President, not desiring a repetition of
last year's f utile proceedings, according'
ly determined to bring about a closed
season this year.
Tho result of this action was that c
bill was immediately Introduced In Par
llament on tho subject.
THE BEHRING SEA BILL.
It X'usscs the Second Heading In tho
JIouso of Commons
London, Juno 2. In tho Houso of Com
mons tho Hon. W. H. Smith moved tho
second reading of the bill for a closo sea'
son on Behrlng Sea,
Ho said that tho govornment was en
deavoriug to arrive at friendly conclu
slons with a kindred power, and no order
In council would lssuo under tho bill un
less assurances were obtained that tho
conditions of arbitration were satisfac
tory, and that sealing would bo prevent
ed, except as to tho 7,000 seals nocossary
for tho natives. Tho arraugouieut ap
peared the best that could bo obtained.
Sir John Ferguson said ho believed tho
reply about to bo addressed to tho United
States government would bring thorn so
closely together that harmony would
soon bo obtained.
Tho bill then passed n second roadlng.

Tho Superintendent roportod that tho
Main, Centre and Lloyd street buildings
need painting on tho outsido. That the
Union street building should bo raised and
tho White street building should receive
immediate attention, as tho foundations
neod repair. That tho old dosks In room
No. 6 of tho Centro stroot building should
bo removed and replaced with new ones
and a janitor should be employed lor the
Turkey Kun building. Tho teachers oro
now doing tho work and it provente them
from attending tho woekly teachers' meet
ings. It is necossary they should attend
tho meeting, but they will not bo able to do
so if a janitor is not employed for their
schools. Aftor speaking well of tho work
accomplished by tho use of supplementary
readers, Mr. Freeman recommonded that
primary histories ho supplied for supple
mentary reading ond that, Ustoad of re
quiring pupils to purchase thorn, tho board
purchase sots so that two schools may use
one set. This will require an expenditure
of but about 8200. But if pulls aro re
quired to purchase them tho oxpenso will
run up into a thousand dollars.
Continuing Mr. Freoman said, "It is my
opinion that if parents of children and
other citizons of tho town would visit our
schools more than thoy do thero would bo
less occasion for complaint. Thoy would
become acquainted with tho teachers,
know more of their work and caroa, and
havo raoro sympathy for tho teachors. If
thoro is any way by which wo might pro
vail upon parents to vi'it tho schools it
would be a good thing. Thero is complaint
frequently about our drawing nnd music.
Some think It is a useless thing in our
schools. I havo takon pains to notify thoso
who have found fault to visit tho schools
and sea what tho work is nnd in no case
havo I failed to convinco those that those
studies are good things."
Tho nnnual report ot tho treasurer,
through the finance committee, was as fol

Superintendent Frooman then made the
ropu.t for tbo library committee, showing
that tho numbor of books on hand is 1,571.
Mr. Freeman stated that larger quarters
for tho library are requlrod and, as another
room for n grammar school will soon bo
nooded, ho rccommendod that a building
with two rooms, ono for tho library and
ono for school purposes, bo erected at tho
rear of tho Main street building.
Presidont Beddall suggested that it would
bo woll, at tho same time, to build somo
placo that would do nwny with tho ronting
of places for schools, as is now tho case.
Mr. Boddall thon thankod tho board for
its co-operation nnd courtosios during tho
past year, and commented favorably upon
tho work accomplished. Referring to tho
remarks mado by 1. J. Forgmon at the
High School graduating oxcrclses, Mr.
Beddall said, "During tho past year wo
increased tho lowost salnries of thotoachors
from?32to 835 and I think that was a
great thing for tho board to do, consider
ing tho disadvantages it labored under dur
ing tho year, and, so far as tho statements
that tho toachors aro not r"coiving laboring
mon's wages is concerned, I would sny
thero aro plonty men, miners and laborers,
in tho mines who aro receiving less than
835 a mont! While tho toachors may bo
deserving of moro pay, I think this board,
under tho conditions it has been laboring,
has boon very liboral, indeed.
Superintendent Freeman then said :
"Last year tho board raised tho salaries of
toachors who had no oxperienco S8 for tho
first year and tnat soemod an injustico to
toachors who had taught throo years. To
mnko that right it Eooms to mo the board
had bottor raiso tho salaries along tho lino
two or throo dollars. I think tho board
could afford to do it."
A motion that tho old board adjourn
sine (fie, was thou carried and Messrs. Bellis
and Knebol, whoso terms as diroctors ox
pirodwith tho meeting, withdrew.
REORGANIZATION.
Messrs. Boddall and O'Hoarn retained
