ONE GOOD TUE¥ DESEEVES ANOTHEE Is What Canada Is Said to Hare to Propose — Liraitatlons on Pelajric Sealing for Limitation* on Pelagic Fishing—Little Hope for Ijiurler's Mission, to Secure Reciprocity—Lobster Also Wants Protection: Also the Sea Otter. Washington, Nov. 13.—The third ses- lion of the experts on seal life was held at the state department yesterday, all of the representatives of the United States, Canada and Great Britain being in attendance. Adams, first secretary of the British embassy, took his place as the diplomatic representative of the Canadian government. It should be understood that this conference is a conference of. "experts." The diplomatic representatives have nothting to say; they are present more as witnesses than anything else, though their presence will enable them to more fully understand the report of the experts when it is ready. What the experts are after is to find some common facts upon which they can agree to a recommendation for the regulation of pelagic sealing, and they are doing all the talking at the conference now going on. During yesterday's conference a series of propositions was presented by the American representatives covering the number and habits of seals, and the extent to which the seal herd had been reduced during the five years in which the Paris award had been in operation. In turn the British-Canadian representatives presented counter propositions, coveringtheir vit-w of the same subjects. Differ but Are Not Irreconcilable. The propositions differed considerably, but were not so wide apart as to lead to the belief that they could not be reconciled. It was felt to be desirable to hold no afternoon session, in order that the two sets of propositions might be compared. Later in the day the British- Canadians submitted some further amendments to the American propositions. It is expected that when the session is resumed today the experts will be able to reach a common understanding:. The propositions do not embody any diplomatic features, but are solely scientific—as to the number, habitp and destruction of the seals. After the ox- perts have reconciled their propositions the diplomats will begin to consider th.; large subject of providing an adequate remedy against seal destruction. It is not expected, however, that this stage will be reached before next week and the flr«tjiilan nf concluding the meeting this week has been given up. Another Question of the .Same Kind. It is stated upon good authority that the Canadians will ask a counter concession from this country in the way of a guarantee for the protection of the northern fisheries "in return for any alteration of the sealing regulations to which they may give their consent. They take the position .that the.JJsh .along the Canadian and Newfoundland coasts are as much the property of Canada as are the seals on the Pribyloff islands the property of the United States, and contend that they have as much right to make demands for the protection of the fish against American fishermen as we have to ask Canadians to agree to further restrictions in the matter of killing the seals. Their specific complaint is that while Canadian laws prohibit fishing except within certain seasons the American laws do not impose corresponding conditions and that while the taking 1 of the fish can be prohibited during the closed seasons within their territory it cannot be controlled outside of these boundaries. Very Little Sliow for Reciprocity. John W. Kasson has been delegated to confer with Sir Wilfrid Laurier on the reciprocity question, but few hope for any reciprocity arrangement. The trouble is that the articles Canada wants to ship us we have to sell, and they are all protected by the Dingley bill. Then there is a claim here that Canada is unreasonable and aggressive, and it is generally understood that if Canada obtained anything worth having In a reciprocity treaty the senate would turn down the treaty. Sir Wilfrid is being accorded a very cordial reception in a social-way, and is being wined and dined by the high dignitaries of our government; but it is freely predicted that lie will not be able to accomplish the object of his visit, even though lie surrenders everything which is in dispute between the two governments in the matter of sealing and trade. OTHER ANIMALS NEKD PKOTTECTION. Sea Otter in Danger of Annihilation, as !• the Succulent Lobster. Washington, Nov. 13.—Captain C. L. Hooper, of the revenue cutter service, commanding the Behring sea patrol fleet, has made a report to the secretary of the treasury on the subject of tha sea otter banks of Alaska. Captain Hooper reviews the history of the otter from the earliest times and arrives at the conclusion that they not only hava been greatly reduced In numbers during the last ten years but that they have actually changed their habits and no longer are found as formerly on or near the shore. He also states that the 1,165 natives on the Aleutian islands are almost wholly dependent upon the otter for the necessities of life, and-wlll be left destitute if the animal is exterminated, as seems imminent if no steps are taken for its preservation. Captain Hooper is of the opinion that the principal parts of the present hunting grounds are wholly within the territorial waters of the United States, and therefore the preservation of the otter would not necessitate the co-operation of any other country- Suitable regulations properly enforced. Captain. Hooper would fiyniib anmle nrotecdoa AC me Sea otter, as not enougn can be taken outside of the prescribed limits to encourage hunting. He appends a set j of regulations which he suggests be j adopted for the government of otter hunting during the season of 1S9S. And now here comes also the fish commission and tells the government that the succulent lobster is another ! "baste" that rmist be protected or it j will perish off the bottom of the sea. ! There is n» doubt about it. Commis- i noner Brice has made ths roest careful ( Inquiries at all lobster colonies and has • examined the latest census of every lobster settlement, and his statement to . President McKinley is unqualified. "The • lobster," he.says, "is rapidly decreas- [ ing." He gives it a certificate of char- j acter and declares it is not a cannibal j except when very hungry. He wants the president to have congress appropriate a few thousand dollars that the commission may be enabled to plant j young lobsters, and prevent the extermination of the noble lobster breed. WAS NARROW AND PROFESSIONAL. Market in Thin Country >"ot Up to Boom Ideas, According to Bradstreet's View, New York, Nov. 13.—In its review of the stock market Bradstreet's says: While speculation showed some respons-J to favorable developments, the course of the market has been irregular. After an improvement in prices early in the week the professional traders made an attack on the market and met with little resistance, though on Friday prices were again put up on the shorts. The coal stocks showed considerable strength because of the general belief that orders will be issued to restrict production and check the accumulation of unused stocks of coal. Sugar was a feature this week, declining from 133 5-8 to 126%, but rallying yesterday to 128 7-S. On the whole the market has been a narrow and professional one. Favorable features are the continued firmness of and activity in wool, iron and steel. The heavy output of iron and moderate reduction of stocks last week suggests the improbability of the advance in prices of iron and steel next year which so many have hoped for. The unfavorable influences in price movements this week are declines for cottons and print cloths, the latter touching the lowest price on record. Wheat, lard and lead are also lower and wire nails have been shaded. There is a long list of staples for which prices are practically unchanged. The more important advances are confined to Indian corn, oats, hops and turpentine. There is an increase in the number of business failures, the total throughout the United States this week being 273, compared with 223 last weelc ROBBERS MAKE A MISTAKE. But Not Half as Bad a One as They Should Have Made. Kansas City, Nov. 13.—The Missouri Pacific passenger train known as tha St. Louis fast mail, which leaves Kangas City at 9 a. m., was held up by five masked robbers at 9:30 o'clock last night at the Chicago and Alton crossing-Just east of Independence, Mo., and less than a mile from the famous Blue Cut in which three train robberies have occurred within the past year. Two of the robbers were disguised as women, and when the engineer saw them swinging a lantern across the tracks, an apparent signal of danger, he did not hesitate to stop. The engine crew were immediately covered with revolvers. Conductor Dennis O'Brien and Brakeman McMichael stepped out to see what was the matter and were greeted by a volley of bullets which at once caused the greatest confusion in the passenger coaches. The conductor and brakemen were compelled to cut the express and baggage cars from the rest of the train, and the engineer -and fireman were made to get down from the cab. The robbers quickly jumped aboard and took the engine and express car about two miles further east, where they stopped and compelled Express Messenger Williams to open his car. He offered no resistance as he carried no treasure. The robbers had evidently intended to stop the St. Louis limited night express, and having made a mistake they proceeded to rob the express messenger of $2.85 and then disappeared. Gives Michael a Walk-Over, Chicago, Nov. 13.—Eddie McDuffle, the crack eastern cyclist, was badly hurt in his match race with Jimmy Michael at the Coliseum last night. The men were in the sixth lap in the fifth mile, when the Boston boy wabbled, his wheel struck the rear of his pacing triplet, and falling heavily he slipped fifty feet along the track and rolled off into the enclosure. He could not stand when picked up, but after vigorous rubbing and administering of stimulants he pluckily remounted his wheel. It was evident, however, that he could not continue' the race and in' the eighth mile he retired. Michael made the fifteen miles colorin 31:07 2-5. Says He Is Pullman's Son. Chicago. Nov. 13.—Ferdinand Friderich Gustav Behring, the German who claims to be the son of the late George M. Pullman, was fined J15 and costs for disorderly conduct yesterday by Justice Foster. Unless friends come to his relief he will have to spend a fortnight or more in the bridewell. He seems to have some kind of backing in his conduct which is a great annoyance to Mrs. Pullman. Carl Schurz's Kapid-Fire Gon- Exeter, N. H., Nov. 13.—Hon. Carl Schurz has again opened fire on Senator Gallinger, in reply to the latter's last open letter. In the letter Schurz says he will cling to Senator Gallinger with repeated and unsparing exposures of "hia wanton attempts to deceive " upoc the operation of the civil service act 'until "you have admitted the untrathfulnesr of your utterances." Xo Yellow Fever in IllLnohv Springfield, His., Nov. 13.—Dr. L. Adelsberger, president of the state board of health, has wired Dr. Egan that he and Dr. Frinstead had made an investigation of the suspected cases reported at Thebes, His., and found them not to be yollew fever, but hemorrhagic malarial feiter. - . ......

TOOK TEE MEETING BY SUBPBI81, But Was Done Amicably and with th« !**• General blaster Workman's Full Approval—Hicks the New Chief— Other Official Cbauee*—Sovereign's Addramt Glve« the I'rens, tin- Courtis and the Capital]!* Hail Columbia, So to Speak. Louisville, Nov. 13.—James R. Sovereign, who has been general master workman of the Knights of Labor for the past four years or more, and who before and during that time has been one of the ablest champions of the order and Its doctrines, was yesterday afternoon relieved . f his office by the general assembly which has been in session in thisclty since Monday last. Under ordinary conditions Sovereign's term of office would not expire until the next meeting. This, however, it is said, makes no difference with the order, whose general officers during a meeting are always in the hands of the assembly and can be chosen and disposed at the will of the majority. Along with Sovereign there wer« three other officers retired—T. B. McGuire, general worthy foreman, and . Daniel Brown and H. B. Martin, members of the executive committee. Hicks 1'ut in SoviTciRii's Place. Henry A. Hicks, of New York city, was chosen to fill Sovereign's place, and I. D. Chamberlain, of Pueblo, Colo., was selected ^ts general worthy foreman Sarsfleld Fitzpatrick, of Montreal, and Henry Bostock, of assembly 3CO, glass workers, were chosen as the two members of the executive board, the third member being Andrew D. Best. This very decided change in the corps of gen- : eral officers of the Knights of Labor will cause considerable astonishment In labor • circles throughout the country: Save to those who were on the "inside," so to speak, for the past three months there was absolutely nothing of this known. On good authority it is learned that it was with Sovereign's most hearty approval that he steps down and out. The same holds good with the other officers who were relieved. Admires His Fredece»«or. Henry A. Hicks expressed the highest admiration for his-predecessor, saying: that he thought him one of the greatest exponents of the age of the prime idea represented by the Knights of Labor. All the business transacted at yesterday's meeting went through in the most amicable manner possible. In the morning session the remnant of the routine business which had been left over was disposed of. The afternoon session was principally taken up with the deliveryof Sovereign's annual address, which wa» listened to by the delegates with th« greatest interest and greeted with «o- thusiasm. lleclaren the Order lit Flourishing. Sovereign prefaced his address with the statement that the opening of this regular session of the general assembly presents to the world the "same undismayed membership through whose fortitude and courage the spirit of progress combats greed and avarice and defies the cant and hypocrisy of the age." He then dwelt briefly on the triumphs of the principles of the order, saying that it had survived th« crimes of its traitors and prospered in spite of the contumely of its enemies. The order, he said, was today stronger In. membership, stronger in character and stronger in the hearts of the people than- it was a year 2igo. He recommended that this session confine its deliberation- largely to the work of organization, and that to this end plans should be put la operation which will insure the service of the largest possible number of experienced and efficient organizer* In Isolated and unorganized^fields.
