toother Display of British
iris Arbitration Deficient in im
portant Respects.
K Washington, May, 8. Tlio negotl-
fitions between the United States and
Ircat Brltlan, respecting the Behrlng
eu seal fisheries during tho past year,
lindlcate that these fisheries are in a
Ivory unsatisfactory state, and that up
this time tho British government
las llrmly resisted oyery effort of tho
lepartraent of state to extend the
Iwcope of regulations prescribed by tho
iParls arbitration, which uro well
cnown to be deficient in Important re
spects, and, in fact, has even relaxed
the regulations so as to facilitate tho
Illegal killing of seals. Tho state dc-
irtment endeavored in vain to secure
continuance In force of the require
sent that all firearms carried by scal
ing vessels in tho seal waters should
i scaled up during the close season.
Che British government held that
the Paris award did not Impose any
tch requirements, and refused to In
clude it in the regulations, notwith
standing that it was presented by our
Ncrnment, and that the absence of
the regulation constituted a violation
Iof the plain intent of the Paris tribu
nal's findings. No better success att
ended the attempt of the state de
partment to secure a revision and ex-
enslon of the laws of all countries
oncerned in tho seal fisheries by In
ternational action.

ground that there had been no
llmlnution of the seal herd as was
reported to tho president, declined to
bo a party to Joint negotiations of
the kind desired, and later, when the
state department offered to accept tho
British proposition looking to the ap
ipolntment of agents to resldo upon
(the seal Islanas for a term of four
years and report upon the herds, with
an amendment lncludis? the Russian
'and Japa&ese Islands, arid representa
tives, of tho governments of Russia
nd Japan in the export list, refused
ton the ground that it could not recog-
inize that cither Russia or Japan was
nraed as to the 6cal herds ou the
hAwerlcan side of the Pacific
That wu the status of tlie negotia
tions up to tho close of tho lust calen
dar year, and there Is little In the
correspondence to warrant the belief
that the British government Is will
ing to agree to any amendment of tho
regulations that in any manner will
tend to restrict further the operations
of pelagic sealers In the Paclllc.
A Family Misunderstanding.
Albany, Muy 8. A woman and
three children went from Newberg

husband became alarmed nnd came
after her. She hnd left her brother's.
Tho man came to Albany nnd tele
phoned to Chief Wells, of Corvallls,
who after half a day's search located
her with u man In that city. Th
husband immediately took a carrlngo
for that city, and upon alighting his
son was tho first person he saw. Tho
boy took him to his mother, who was
found In the company of the man.
Matters were fixed up without tho
usual and deserved tragedy, the man
being nn old acquaintance tho hus
band said, and tho family left for
home. A peculiar incident in every
day life. Albany Democrat-

Say They Go to Fight for
Received Generous Offers From In
surgent Leaders,
New York, May 8.-TI10 World
It was reported nt Newark last
night that several Jttembers of the
"First regiment of the National Guard
locatedtfeere, had aceepted generous
offers to fight for Cuban Indcbendcuco
and had left under orders of the
Cuban Junta.
The number of guardsmen who are
going Is not dellnltcly known. It Is
learned, however, that at lcastn dozen
have already signed an agreement
with the representatives of tho Junta
and a much larger number arc seri
ously considering the matter, with
the prospect that they will Join tho
On Tuesday night tho llrst detach
ment left Nowark In charge of Ser
geant William L. Edwards and Priv
ate Louis Iltiggorty, and was com
posed entirely of members of tho First
regiment. They wcro escorted to a
rendezvous in this city, where they
are said to be now stationed.
It was given out that tho expedi
tion in which tho Nowarkcrs aro to
take part was to embark at Perth
Ambov. This report was intended to
throw tho cmmlssarles of the Spanish
government off the scent. It is said
that the men who make up tho party
will board a vessel ut sea, after being
conveyed from various points in tngs
and sailing vessels.
One volunteer is said to havo been
offered n bonus of $700, together with
his faro to Jacksonville and u monthly
compensation of $30. Another state
ment is thut tho men uro to receive a
bonus of $100 and $22 n month.
Tho representatives of tho Junta
havo for sovcrual weeks maintained a
recruiting station in this city. It is
known that a number of influential
members of tho Lincoln post of tho
G. A. R. have been aiding them. A
force of men recruited from all parts
of tho country Is suld to bo In Newark
now, waiting alliance to reach Cuba.
The Cuban Juntu Issued a state
ment yesterday of the law regarding
Cuban belligerency, together with a
petition of Tomas Estrada Palma, a
delegate of the republic of Cuba, for
tho recognition by tho United States
of tho belligerency of tho Cubans.
Tho statement was prepared by
Horatio S. Rcnbctis, counsel for the
Cuban legation in this city, and a
copy of the same will bo in the hands
of every congressman.
It is pointed out that much of the
existing misapprehension on tho sub
ject of recognition arises from a con
fusion of the various kinds of recogni
tion of Insurgents; first, recognition
of belligerency, which Is the lowest
grade; second, virtual or commercial
recognition, and third, recognition of
independence. That the Cubans arc
conducting a war, Mr. Reubens shows
by citing the strength of their army
of 60,000 men, and that of Spain, 120,
000. The present attitude of neutrality
of the United States, ho says, gives a
great advantage to Spain.

Ho Attends the Farmers' Picnic
at Aumsvlllo,
I have boon lu Salem only onco tho
past week and havo kopt pretty close
nt home on tho farm. But I manage
to go to a few little schoollmuso meet
ings where tho Populists put us to
sleep nnd tho girls sing, about the
only plcnsunt part ot our politics.
There la so much cutting around this
yenr no ono knows whore thoy are at.
I hear n great deal even from men
who stop hero nt tho farm or who
como to borrow pnpors. I lenrn John
Knight, thoshorlff, is fighting John
Carson and Jap Mlnto. Knight is
quite populnr in a cigar store in town
whoro thoy play cards a good deal and
is nlso, I sco by tho papers, a crack
man at n bowling alloy. Ho gots In a
grcnt many licks on men ho don't like.
When ho wns chairman of tho Repub
lican county commlttco ho was great
on making all Us farmers vote tho
straight tickot nnd a man who didn't
do It wasn't lit to associate indecent
company, nnd if you didn't want him
to vote for n man you'd havo to keep
his name off tho Republican tickot,
as ho'd almost vote for a yellow dog if
ho was on tho tickot. I novor ljkcd
Jup Mlnto and don't know this man
Carson, but good ndvlco is good ad
vice nnd it Is tlmo our sheriff (and
somo other prominent Republicans I
will nnmo) wns taking somo of his own
medicine. Ho nnd Harvoy Scott set
nn oxumplo of Republicanism that
will bo very dangerous for us to Imi
tate. Whon tho fannors start to bolt
thoy do It by Hundreds.
While In Salem tills wook 1 met my
old friend Senator Dawson, of Linn
county. I have sat with him In tka
grange nnd regard that ho Is u sharp
politician. Ho wont In on tho Re
publican wavo last election and Is
rather pleased ho has no campaign
this year. Ho says thoy don't talk
anything but politics up in Linn
county, but don't talk about a suc
cessor to Mitchell ut all. "Wo're go
ing to elect tho tickot llrst and then
wo'H sco about making a senator
afterwards." Dawson is protty sharp.
I mot tho Republican candidate for
sheriff, Frank Wrlghtman. I used to
know him when ho loafed around
town In his shirt sleeves between
spells of work on tho farm. Ho has
always been a good boy to help his
mothor, nnd up hero in tho hills wo
rather like tho farmer boy candidate.
Ho Is not losing any sleep and Is going
to bo elected if push and perseverance
will put so young a man In the fattest
oillco lu tho county ho will get thore.
