WASHINGTON. Dec. B.—Secretary Gage has submitted *o the department of state his report upon the action of the treasury department in suppressing filibus:ering expeditions to Cuba in violation of the neutrality laws, a synopsis of which, as furnished by the department, ia as follows: Secretary (iage points out the fact that during the two years and a half only six American vessels of an aggregate of 1.331 registered tons are alleged to have safely landed expeditions from the United States in Cuba. With the exception of the Laurada. the six American vessels alleged to successfully have taken part in expeditions in Cuban waters, are small tugs and a pilot boat, each less than PW tons, and obviously incapable of carrying large numbers of men or large quantities of arms and munitions. Three foreign vessels, of an aggregate of 1,773 tons, are alleged to have been successful in the same effort. Referring to these foreign vessels, the Norwegian steamer Leon, the Danish steamer Horsa, and the British steamer Bermuda, tne secretary invites attention to the fact that the crews of these vessels are required to be shipped before the consuls of their respective nations in accordance with the laws of those nations, which also impose on the masters of those vessels various other duties to be performed by the consuls. He suggests the inquiry might be pertinent whether the Spanish authorities informed these consuls of the alleged expeditions and whether some measure of responsibility does not rest on the Spanisn authorities for the alleged departure of these vessi !s, or if the consuls w > re notified, whether the same measure of responsibility does not rest upon thfm. This suggestion Is made, not to shift responsibility, but to show that if tb- se alleged expeditions started without the knowledge of tr< t.«ury officials, they also departed without the knowledge of officials of other nations. whose action was a necessary preliminary to clearances. With the vessels referred to, it Is alleges, there have been associated about a harbor tui;s. three or fanr lighters, a few* small diearr.ers and about a dojtrti small ships and schooners, tn all less than fifty, on the Atlantic and tlulf coasts !n isi>s there were lO.Stlv ve >**]«; under lim tons and 2.917 wssels of 1,100 tons or lees a total r-f 1 Ameri an vvssd* of « description available for filibustering purposes. That only six out of 13.D55 American ve.-Hi-ls tu.~- • -eded in reaching Cuba, and that less than fifty bad any share in th<s« expeditions. Secretary Ga«« says is a demonstration, flrat. of the law-abiding spirit of the nation and of th« obedience of the people to the president's command; and. second, of a wholesome and ro.nreswln* fear on the part of those who micht be disposed to lawlessness and violation* of our obligations of the law of neutrality. Eight revenue cutters, with crews of 317 men. armed with fifteen guns have cruise.! 7S.TSS nules, occupying 189 months in the assrejajate. patrolin* the coast In prevent filibustering expeditions. Th( v have captured seven vessels and 115 men. and have brought up tn » expeditions and haw h>-ld under surveillance fourteen vessels under suspicion. From time to time several other revenue cutters have been employed on temporary duty. Perhaps the strongest statement in the report is this; "If the Spanish patrol of 2.200 miles of Cuban coast had frustrated onehalf the number of expedit.ons whit-h were frustrated by the United Stater au'.horit <*s along a coast line of 5.470 miles, not one man nor one cartridge would hav, been il-1 i -rt 1 v landed in Cuba from the United St ites. Out of the sixty alleged expediti ns only four have been broken up by Spain. Illustrating th!« statement. Mr. Gage refers particularly to the expedition that left on the l.aurada from Baltimore and landed at lianes on March 2! It appears that the l*aiirada remained tn this seanort two da\ s, landing men and arms, ard wis n ! molested by the Spanish authority's in Cuba, who had been informed of her landing and even minutely where torpedoes had been placed. I'nirss Spain is prepared to avow the inability or indisposition to defend !>r lnterests in Cuba. St -retarv Gage holds that the responsibility for any filibustering exttons may he proyeriy fixed on Spanish authorities jr. Cuba, w -,o had been proper]> informed by the S; %ni*h fgatton.

Concerning one ase it is to be observed that the collector at New York reports that Mr. Hand, representing the Spanish consul, stated to him that he did r.ot desire the vessel detained at the dock, but to be a*ixtd after departure therefrom. Mr. Hand and Mr. Taornhlß stated that they supposed that the Pinkerton detective agency has the watching of the pier and they would advise the United States marshal promptly of the departure of the sloop, and they rt»ssred the matter left in their own hands. Secretary Gas- makes no estimate of the cost involved, which has evidently been very large. The extent and results of the work performed by the department are an adequate measure of the fidelity of Its officers to their oaths and a standard by which to measure efficiency. BILL TO PKOHIHfT SEALING. American Citiaena Shall Not Hnnt North of 35th Degree. WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.—The senate committee on foreign relations today authorized a favorable report upon the bill prohibiting pelagic sealing by the people of tha Unit d States. The bill is the joint production of the state and treasury department*. and its passage is asked upon the the grounl that with such a law upon the statute hooks the administration will i>s in a better position than at present to ask othvr governments to prohibit pelagic sealing. The bill was reported to the senate later in the day. The first section of it is as follows: "That no citizen of the United States nor person owing duty or obedience to the laws and treaties of tne United States, nor any person belonging to or on board a vessel of the United States shall kill, capture or hunt at any time or in any manner whatever atiy fur seal in the waters of the Pacific ocean north of the .loth degree of north latiiude and including Bering sea and the Sea of Okhotsk." The bill also prohibits any citizen of the United States from equipping or furnishing supplies to any vessel engaged In killing or hunting fir seals and declares that no United States vessel shall be employed in this work. The penalty for violating the proposed law is Imprisonment tor no, mote . .... months or a fine of not less than sJuo or more than 12,000, or both, and the forfeiture of vessels so engaged. The fourth section of the bill la as follows: "if any vessel of the United States shall be found within the waters to which tnis act applies having on board fur sealskins or bodies of seals or apparatus or implements suitable for killing or taking seals. It shall be presumed that such vessel was used or employed in the killing of seal**, or that said apparatus or implements were used in violation of this act until the contrary is proved to the satisfaction of the court.'* The United States courts in California. Oregon, Washington and Alaska are given jurisdiction over cases arising under the act. It is especially provided that the act is not to interfere with the privileges of coast Indians nor with the taking of seals on the Prihilof isiaruls. Officers of the navy and the revenue cutter service are empowered to search suspected vess- Is. The Importation by any person of seai skins taken contrary to this law is prohibited, and all such skin° so imported are to bo seized and destroyed. Representative Hitt, of Illinois, chairman' of the committee on foreign affairs of the house, introduced a similar bill in the house. IN THE SENATE. Fnr Sen I Mill Presented— Allen Criti«*l*ea the Mrntti&e. WASHINGTON, Dec. I—Today's session of the senate occupied less than an hour, the time principally being consumed by the members in the presentation of memorials, recommendations and hills. Davis of Minnesota reported from the comrr.mlttee on foreign relations a bill prohibiting the killing of fur seals in the North Pacific ocean. He asked for :ha immediate consideration of the bill, but Hale of Maine objected on the ground of the importance of the measure, and &: krd that the bill b» printed. A resolution present* d by Allen, declaring it to be the sense of the senate that the t*n -ted States should recognize the j>olitical independence of Cuba, was made the subject of some remark® by the Nebraska senator. He expressed the belief that President MeKinley's statement in his message that the recognition of the belligerency of the Cuban Insurgents is now unwise and therefore inadmissible would be a great disappointment to the members of th*- Republican party throughout the T'nlted States. The national convention of that party bad decl ired in favor of the independence of Cuba, going fnr'het thin the simple recognition of belligeron y. He thought that the pr. sident was under obligation to carry out the pledge whl h his party had made, a pledge whi h had been mad--> to is..w.<w people. The president. All-n thoueht. had been lulled to sleep hw the declaration of Spain that she wou'd give Cuba a s ml-politlcal existence. H«» expressed the belief that the president's neglect to take such action as would insure the political Independence of Cuba was an exhibition of "rank hypocrisy" and a Warrant n.-elect of public dutv.""which would he corrected by 'he All Ruling Power in His own good time. At th* conclusion of Allen's remarks, Hoar presented a resolution Ire th# resrret of the senate at the news of the death of R,-pr. #mtat!v<> Ashley P Wright of Massachusetts and providing for si adjournment a-» k further mark of respect At 12 SB o'clock the re«ol-it on Vi is adopted and the senate adjourned.

The Brotherhood of the Cooperative Commonwealth of America has established a colony about fourteen miles south of this city on the edge of Skagit county, and unless all signs taii the settlement is destined to grow to representative proportions. The new colony has crept in almost unheraided, and by skillful business negotiations has obtained title to a valuable tract of land. It is a tract that is not oniy Inherently valuable, but is peculiarly adapted to serve the experimental purposes of the socialists in the way of agricultural and colonial life. To the theorists of the new school of social and economic thought it possesses additional significance from the fact that it is susceptible of large additions from all sides, and indications already point to a considerable enlargement of its present borders. There are already eleven families and thirty single men on the ground, ail living in a newly-erected colony house and St work clearing up a 2SO-acre farm that Was bought for them last spring by an advance agent at $lO per acre. The parent orginization of this society was first started by K. V. Debs, but when ho organized the Social Democracy and took in the labor unions he was disowned Ithe brotherhood. The men who are on the ground already aire from many different states, mainly the prairies, and they came West In jS-airle schooners. They say that many accessions to their population are en route {torn the East. | At the head of their colony Is a member t-feted by a majority vote, and he can be deposed at any time in the same way. The work Is all common, and the property Is the community's. The members receive 40 cents per day from the parent organization till their land is cleared and made productive. They will admit anyone to their ranks here for $l3O in cash and one man who joined them traded five acres of iand for a membership ticket. The colony has been at home in Its new location now for several weeks and has begun clearing and diking In earnest. Some of the members announce that they will hire out and devote their wages to the community. They say that tley have an option on the land close to their farm, which is a splendid piece land, part marsh and part timber. THROWS OPfcN lilt; LAND.
