PRESIDENT'S REPLY COMMENDED-
England lietiorteil to Have Her Kye on
fc Coaling Station.
SAN Fhani isco, March 24. The threat
ened trouble with Great Britain over Behr
ing sea niak s interesting the revelation of
Charles E. Anthony, a civil engineer who
recently rei ched San Diego from Lower
California. Anthony claims to have proof
of a plan of the English government to
seize the harbor of San Quentin, Lower
California, for a coaling station, and he
gives new fa.-ts in regard to the scheme,
which may y t be carried out.
Say They are Only a Blind,
lie says: "All the raiiroad building and
irrigation woi ks planned by the Mexican
International company are simply a blind
to cover the plans of the English govern
ment to secure a coaling station in Lower
California, as. in the event of the comple

Leaves Knonibillty for Trouble
with His Lordship,
The reading of Salisbury's letter in the
senate is said to hare greatly whetted the
appetites of senators for the president's
roirponse. The response was generally com
Xstemded as rm aud to the point. The
president ranewed his former declaration
that a snedns vivendi seemed to him the
Oatral and only proper manner of deal
fcig with the qnestion, pending the action
of impartial arbitrators. lie did not dis-
eaw at great length the effect of pelagis
sea stag, for ks eonsidsrsd its destructive
Ososastsr snffielently established by
ttst reports of experts and the facts already
BsU before the BritlsTi government.
The Bending eaeme Disapproved.
Vbe president declares Lord Salisbury's
Msuteation about exchanging bonds with
the poachers to be impracticable and un
ItgmlGed and altogether beyond serious
consideration by the government of the
'Pnlted States. The president leaves
loop-hole still open for Lord Salisbury to
accept the renewal of the modus vivendi,
but declares that if the modus vivendi be
sot renewed this year he will not hold
himself responsible for any consequences
that may follow. This is an almost lit
eral quotation from the message prepared
by the president.
Indignant at the Marquis.
The usual motion followed the reading
of the papers in the senate to refer them
to the committee on foreign affairs. There
was some running debate on this motion
which disclosed a general feeling of indig
nation against Lord Salisbury and a will
fcigness to sustain the president. One of
he Democratic senators wanted the cor
respondence made public, but Senator
Sherman objected in the strongest terms
to this. He .is in favor of ratifying the
treaty now pending and then following
with whatever action may be necessary to
enforce the laws against the poachers an J
protect the seals.
Teller and Other Belligerent.
Senator Teller and some of the other
.western members, notably those from the
Pacific coast, are not disposed to notice
the pending treaty any further, but favor
iatniediate steps to arrest 'poaching re
gardless of any feelings Great Britain may
have on the subject after ' this action be-
ator Sherman's more" conservative course
will be adopted, unoe by adopting the
treaty the United States would indicate
its willingness to deal perfectly lair with
England. ' '
The Position of England.
A gentleman who claims to know the
-position ot England says that when Eng
land agreed to the modus vivendi last
Tear the Canudian poachers looked to her
for damages. These claims amounted to
several millions, of dollars. If England
wants to keep Canada in good humor she
will have to settle them. Salisbury knows
that a large percentage of these Canadian
aching vessels, though flying the
British flag, are owned and fitted out

MlLW A CKKK.March 24. Chairman Wall,
of the Democratic state central committee,
said last night concerning the supreme
court's nvtlliflcnUon of the apportionment
law: "The Democrat ic party will hold a
spejd sassien of ths legislature and will
make an apportionment according to the
directions of the supreme court. There
fa mot the slightest doubt but that ths
Demooratc ia the legislature can
take Slilwaukes oouuty, for in

than could possibly b done under the
present alleged gerrymander. A good
many id the districts uudcsr the last ap
portionment were out out iu the interest
of Individual members rather than of the
party as whole, and it is by no means sure
that the Democracy will lose anything in
prospects by the abandonment of that
policy. At any rate we will have gains
ia the long run by the decision."

"Washington, March 23. George O.
Jones, the well--t.no wn Greenbacker, bus
issued a chart (bowing how, as he claims,
the price of silver has controlled price -I
for wheat and cotton between the year3
1871 and 1693. The chart shows that the
price ol wneat i.as generally advanced or
declined from 25 to 35 cents per bushel, and
cotton from 20 t 40 per cent, on an aver
age rise or fall of 20 cents per once in silver.
"These figures," says Jones, "clearly
prove that all legislation intended to ad
vance the price of silver is not solely to
benefit the prod icers."
