Anil Will First Ri-ci'ivo ths Attention of the Experts Alunc. After Which It Will He Con-hK'red by I.aurier, Pauncefot«, Foster and Otlinr Diplomats on Both Sides—Immigration To Re an Early Subject for Congress to Tackle and Solve. Washington, Nov. 10.—Colonel Foster s.nd Sir Julian Pauncefote conferred yesterday ac to the arrangements for the meeting of British, Canadian and Amer| ican representatives relative to Behring sea. A general understanding was reached that the arrival yesterday of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the Canadian premier, and partj r would permit the meeting to open on tomorrow, as today waa likely to be given to an exchange of Views between the Canadians and British. The British ambassador accompanied the premier to the White House this morning and introduced him to the president. This was a call of courtesy, however, and It was not expected that any of the pending questions would be referred to. The British embassy had extended an invitation to Sir Wilfrid to be a guest during his stay here, but he had determined to remain with the other Canadian representatives at the Shoreham, where quarters ha.3 been engaged. Meeting IVill Take a Broad Scope. It is i:ow definitely settled that the coming meeting will take a much broader scope than was at first anticipated. At the outset there will be a comparison of notes between the seal-experts—Hamlin for the United State?, Professor Thompson for Great Britain, and Professor Macoun for Canada. The Canadian premier and Sir Louis Davies, Sir Julian Pauncefote and Colonel Foster, will be present in an unofficial capacity, ready to take up the larger phases of the question when the seal experts have concluded their exchange of technical information. It in said the relations existing between Great Britain and Canada make it essential that all questions of an imperial character should be concluded by the direct representatives ot the imperial government. Sealing Question to t'ome Vp First. At the same time the presence of the Canadian premier is expected to assist in reaching speedy conclusions, without the usua.I delays of acting through the British foreign office. The formal execution of these conclusions will devolve entirely on the imperial authorities In London and their representative here, the British ambassador. It was said at the state department yesterday that the first object would be to reach a settlement on the Behring sea question, and with that out of the way there would be every dispostitinn to favorable conference on border immigration. Canadian- American interests in the Klondike, reciprocity, and the other questions which Sir Wilfrid and his associates regard as paramour.* to the Behring sea issue. IMMIGRATION* TO BE RESTRICTED.

Natural Gas Consumers desiring to avail themselTes of the Annual Rate, commencing November 1st ,can do so by calling at the office and arranging for same. All bills must be paid on or before the 10th of each month. Loganspt and Legislation on That Subject To Be the First Taken Up by Congress. Washington. Nov. 10.—One of the first measures of public importance that will come up for consideration in congress next session will be a bill to restrict immigration. The administration is committed to such a bill and the Republican leaders in the house and senate will devote their attention to its passaga early in the session. It will be remembered that the last congress passed an immigration bill. It went to President Cleveland, who vetoed it. The house promptly passed the bill over his veto, but owing to the lack of time the senate did not act upon it. The man who was chairman of the committee on immigration in the house at that time— Bartholdt of Missouri—opposed the bill. When Speaker Reed appointed iiU committees for this congress he supplanted Mr. Bartholdt as chairman by Dan Ford, of Ohio, who is in sympathy with the administration on the immigration question. It is likely that the bill which President Cleveland vetoed may be shorn of some of its features in order, to satisfy those who opposed the measure in sympathy with the objections which he urged against it. It is certain, however, that the bill which the next congress will pass will be even more stringent in some features than the old one. The new bill will provide for the exclusion of anarchists. It will aim to keep out the ignorant classes of Immigrants who form the dangerous elements in the cities. It will exclude the men in certain skilled branches who are accustomed to come to America, in busy seasons, take the places of better paid American labor, and then when times are dull go home again to spend their savings there. It will discriminate against French-Canadians and others who are citizens of a foreign government, living across the bonier, but who enter the United States in the morning, compete with American labor, and go home in the evening. j'erence V. Powderly, commissioner general of immigration, says there is crying need for an amendment to the immigration laws which will prevent the introduction of objectionable immigrants into this country through Canada. He discovers that large numbers of immigrants are unloaded at Quebec and other Canadian ports and shipped Into the states without being obliged to undergo the scrutiny to which immigrants are subjected who land at American seaports. This evil, he thinks, should be corrected, and he -will bring the matter directly to the attention of congress. HtTXDKEDS OF 5IEX IN PERU. Government to Send lui Kujxdltloii to Bes- cne Ice- Hound "Whalem. Washington, Xov. ID.—The govern- tMnt tias been appealed to in behalf of irhalers who are ice-bound in the arctic, of whose situation the following is known: The whaling steamers Orcha. Freeman, Belvidere and Rosario were at Point Barrow on Sept. 13 with about 160 men. These are now proba-bly closed in by Ice near that place. The whaling »v?a.m.ers Newport, Fearless, Jeannie and Wanderer were at Herschel island Aue. 2fi with about 125 men. All the above eight vessels expected to return this fall and had only about thre« months' rations. The g-cvernment will probably send the Bear or some other steamer with provisions for these ice-bound sailors. NOT SPOU-ING FORTVlGHT. Spain Wnnta No War -with Uncle Sam—* Demands of Republicans. Madrid. Nov. 10.—In response to a cable message from a non-official American source Senor Sagasta, the premier, has sent the following cabled declaration through Senor Dupuy de Lome, the Spanish minister at Washington: "So far from seeking a pretext to declare war against the United States Spain would regard it as a misfortune to be given the occasion for such an unhappy resolution. Animated as she is by the most amicable sentiments toward the great republic. Spain hopes of America that the latter will do its utmost to fortify sentiments of friendship for the sake and welfare of both countries, while at the same time respecting the rights of Spain." Barcelona, Nov. 10.—A great meetlrg of Republicans was held last evening at the Theater Tivoli in this city. After addresses by popular Republican orators resolutions weraunanlmouslyadopt- ed demanding the re-establishment of the constitutional guarantees suspended since the anarchist outrage during the celebration of Corpus Christi on June 7 of last year, together with explanations of the arbitrary use the authorities have made of that suspension, and of the rumored Inquisitorial proceedings against anarchists at Montjuieh fortress. These resolutions the meeting directed to be sent to the government. STILL, THEY ARE CABBAGE HEADS. Which looks a tittle Like a Joke on the Silver Champion. Cairo, Ills., Nov. 10.—Louis Wilmot, of this city, raised a curiosity in his garden this summer in the shape of a cabbage with sixteen well-developed heads. He is an ardent admirer of Bryan, and thought the leader of the free silver forces might be glad to have the 16-to-l vegetable. He wrote Bryan, telling him of it, and offering to send it to him if he would accept the gift. Bryan being absent from home, his reply was delayed, but a day or two since Wilmot received the following reply from Bryan: "My Dear Sir: Tour favor has just come to my attention. I thank you for your expressions of good will and If you still have the curiosity you mention and wish to send it to me you may do so and I will pay the express charges. W-th bfst wishes for your health and prosperity, I am, very truly yours, W. J. Bryan." The cabbage was shipped at once. Wilmot values the letter very highly and will preserve it, as it is an autograph one. MAJOR BUCKNER FOUND GUILTY. Commander of a Neprro Battalion of the X. >'. G. Tried by Court Martial.

Major Buckner was charged with conduct prejudicial to good order and military discipline, consisting of insolence to Assistant Adjutant General Smith, and in refusing to take cars here on the Chicago and Alton, as commanded, on the plea that the cars were filthy. GOT. Tanner on Chinese Miners. Springfield, Ills., Nov. 10.—A delegation of miners' official^ headed by President Cartwright, of the Springfield sub-district, waited on Governor Tanner yesterday in regard to the rumored Importation of a large body of Chinese miners into the Braidwood field. The governor expressed his sympathy with the white miners, and said that while he could not restrict the Importation of the Chinese miners he would not permit them to enter the state bearing arms, nor would he permit the presence at the mines of the reported large bodies of armed ex-Chicago, policemen acting as guards to the Chinese. Confessed a Crime He Didn't Commit. Madison. Wis., Nov. 10.—Governor Scofield has pardoned Luke Flint, of Marinette, who has served six months of a year's sentence to the state prison for robbery. Flint pleaded guilty to the charge, but Judge Hastings, who sentenced him, in a letter to the governor states that Flint was drunk when he made the plea, and that he has since discovered that Flint was not implicated in the offense in any way. Indianapolis Postofllce Consolidation. Washington, Nov. 10.—Assistant Postmaster General Heath yesterday made arrangements for the consolidation of postoffices in the vlncinity of Indianapolis in conformance with the "Greater" Indianapolis plans.

BULL IN AFRO Why Ha Is There, According to the View of Lord Salisbury, British Premier, EimEELY A MATTEE OP BUSINESS, In Which He Wants To Be Neighborly, but Notifies Johoy Crapautl to "Iteep Oir the Grass" of British Eights-What the Concert of .Europe Accomplished in the Greco-Turkisli Matter and Wliat It Might Have Done, to Greece. London, Nov. 10.—The brillianc}- of the gathering at the lord mayors' banquet at the Guild Hali last evening was somewhat marred by the tokens of mourning for the late Duchess of Teck. A majority of the ladies present wore gowns of black or dark gray. The entrance of the Marquis of Salisbury, prime minister, and Arthur J. Balfour. first lord of the treasury, was the signal for loud applause, but the reception tendered to the foreign diplomats was of the tamest character as compared with the enthusiasm which last year greeted the then ambassador of the United States, Thomas F. Bayard. After the usual loyal and formal toasts the Marquig of Lansdowne, secretary of state for war, responded for "The Army." In tha course of his speech he eulogized "the gallant work being done on our Indian frontier, especially by the troops of those native rulers who have long" wished to stand shoulder to shoulder with us." He then proceeded to point out the necessity of an increase of the army to meet "the requirements of imperial expansion." Salisbury Given an Ovation. The Marquis of Salisbury on rising was greeted with several minutes of continuous cheering. He began by deploring the engineers' dispute, which he said "involves the future prosperity or disaster of the country," but added that he was glad to say there was "a renewed prospect that the board of trade's intervention would prove successful." His lordship read a telegram from the queen, asking him to express how deeply her majesty felt the marvelous display of loyalty to the crown and to her person at the diamond jubilee. After referring 1 to the conduct of the troops on the Indian frontier in terms similar to those used by the Marquis of Lansdowne, and warmly praising the conduct of the Ang-lp-Egyptian expedition In the Soudan campaign, the premier came to the leading passage in his speech. Introduces the Difficulties iu .Africa. This introduced the tangled question of the Niger and the conflicting claims and interests of Great Britain and France in that section of West Africa. He saidr"It might not achieve the general conciliatory process desired if I entered frankly into all the negotiations between the powers respecting: Africa. We are all aware of the great extent of rritcry cast loose during the lasttwen- y yrars in Africa and put up as the ob- ct of acquisition for several enterprising governments. The negotiations that are proceeding- will possibly continue a long- time. We desire that territory to be governed on strict principles of right and with a constant regard to its prosperity and to the interests of the empire. We do not desire unjust and illegitimate achievements, and we do not wish to take territory pimply because it would look well to paint red on the maps." JOHN* BUIX IS STRICTLY BUSINESS. He Is in the Beal Estate Trade for Revenue and Revenue Only. , The premier then proceeded to explain Great Britain's position as follows: "Our objects are strictly busi. ness. "We wish to extend commerce, trade, industry and civilization; to throw open as many markets as possible, and to bring together as many consumers and producers as possible, and to open the great natural highways and waterways of the continent. We wish trade to pursue an unchecked course on the Niger, the Nile and the Zambesi, and in doing these things—while we wish to behave in a neighborly manner and to show due consideration for the feelings and claims of others—we are obliged to say that there is a limit to the exercise of this particular set of feelings, and we cannot allow our plain rights to be overridden." [Prolonged cheering.] His lordship then passed on to speak of the situation in the east. He said the history of the past year was that the European concert had failed to prevent Greece from going to war, but had succeeded in preserving the peace of Europe. It was, he submitted, a. great and praiseworthy achievement for the concert to avert that calamity. He continued: "Had the concert exerted all its force to prevent Greece from going to war the responsibility might have rested upon it of erasing Greece from the map." With reference to the Cretan question tis lordship observed that tbjs was still unsettled, but added: "The concert of Europe is like 3. steam roller —with great power, but little speed." In concluding his speech Lord Salisbury said: "One hope we have of preventing the competition of armamenta among European powers ending in a terrible effort for mutual destruction, fatal to civilization, is that the powers may gradually be brought to act together in a friendly spirit as to all questions that may arise, until a.t last they shall be welded into some international construction which. wUll giv« the world, as the result of their gxeat strength, a long spell of unfettered commerce, prosperous trade and continual ' peace." __ _^ ^ £lectlon Complicate* Cam-en Kjtttcn.

The company would much prefer to have the men return to work, »cii I think <?very chance has been given them to. do so. It is now six months since they went out, and we have oon- tracted to deliver coal, and of courM it must be delivered. "Yes, Chinamen are good miners. Wr have large mining interests in the wept, and many Chinamen work for us. We can get men immediately if thtr« i» good reason to believe the strikers will not return. That report about a stockade is simply this—we are in duty bour.i to protect our property, and the lives of the men who do work for us, and at Carbon Hill we have an immense tract of land removed from the highway which we are fencing in, and should the strikers make trouble we will employ men to guard the premises." Sam Moy, "mayor n* Chinatown," Wall Hing and Hip Lee, three of the authorities In the Chicago Chinese colony, say that the plan of Importing Mongolian miners from Wyoming to fill the places of the striking miners at Braidwood has fallen through, and that the agent" of tlis Six Companies, has served notice on the coal company that he will be unable to supply the necessary men. The officials of the coal company, however, said yesterday that th« contract with the Six Companies is still in effect. DEATH OF A NAVAL OFFICER. , Renowned for a Bold Deed Oone Durftiff the Rebellion. New York, Nov. 10.—The death yesterday (at the age of 76) of Rear Admiral Alexander G. Rhind, U. S. N.. clones the life of one of ".he most daring of the naval officers- of this country. Admiral Rhind performed operations in the civil war for which he received the thanks of the navy department. It was at the attack on Port Fisher that h* won his greatest renown. Assisted by Lieutenant Preston and a volunteer crew from his own ship he commanded the Louisiana, which, loaded with 215 tons of gun powder and bombs, set to explode by clockwork, was towed close to the fort. The officers and men. were taken oft by the steamer Wilderness. The powder boat blew up as expected, but did little injury to the fort. 'This operation was suggested by General Benjamin F. Butler and Admiral Porter, who detailed the officers and in his report said ^'Commander P.hind a.nd Lieutenant Preston had made an arrajigement to sacrifice themselves in case - the vessel waa boardeci, a thing likely to happen." Flea of an Insurance Company. Spring-field, Ills., Nov. 10. — In th» Sangamon circuit court yesterday Judff* Creighton rendered an Interesting decision In an insurance case. Eliza NIHa- han had a claim against the Mutual IAf# Insurance company, of Waterloo,- la., for $3,000.'
