Herd Not In Dumber of Extermination While the Pr^KCii t '/.one Around the Islands Is Maintained, but Telasric Stealing Will Kill It-self Because It Makes the Business Unprofitable—Diplomats Take the Facts and the Outlook Is Good for the Settlement of All the Disputed Questions B-etween the Countries, Washington. Nov. 17.—The Behring sea meeting, in which representatives o° Great Britain, Canada and the United States have participated, came to a ?lose last night. The seal experts make a unanimous report concerning the condition of the seal herds &nd the diplomatic representatives of the respective governments are reaching- an understanding by which they hope at a later day to effect final adjustment not only o'' the Behring sea question but of other pending border controversies. For the present, however, no final action was taken as to the suspension of pelagic sealing:. The Canadians urged that other questions be embraced in any plsun of settlement, and suggested an interna- t.onal commission to accomplish this end. This proposition was fully discussed, and an agreement reached that the Canadian officials would put their views in writing after returning to Ottawa and submit them to the authorities here. Agreement of the Seal Expert*. The unanimous agreement of the experts brings the governments together tor the first time on all the facts relating- to the seals. This agreement was reached after painstaking comparison of notes, and the results were announced in an official statement by Colonel Foster, as follows: "The delegates to the fur seal conference have agreed unanimously on certain propositions touching the fur seal herds of Behring tea. The report contains sixteen propositions which are briefly epitomized as follows: That the Pribylof herd has declined in numbers from 1SS1 to 1SS7; that the number \va? formerly three or five times that which now exists; that the death rate among pups' is great, not more than one-hall" to one-third surviving to the agf of three years; that the number of breeding females in 1590 and 1S97 was between 160,000 and 180,000; that the decrease from 1S9G and 1597 was notable, though its extent could not be definitely determini-d: that land killing of males as now practiced does no harm to the herds; that the pelagic sealera respect tho limitations of the law; that pelagic sealing involves indiscriminate killing; that the catch at sea contains a marked excess of females; that the killing of males on land is the cause of this. lifl'cct of Killing of Females. "Further theexperts agreethat among the females killed are not only those both nursing and pregnant, but also many who are immature or who have already lost their pups: that the fur seal being polygamous a large number of males may be killed with impunity: that females cannot be kiiled in similar numbers without checking the increase of the herd or bringing about an actual decline; that a small number of females—less than the annual increment of breeders—might be taken without producing actual decrease; that excessive pelagic sealing has led to a reduction in the herd; that pelagic sealing has of late fallen off in greater ratio than the herd has. this producing a tendency toward equilibrium in numbers; in estimating the future conditions of the herd must be taken into consideration reductions in the number of surviving pups caused by the pelagic catches of 1S94 and 1S95. No Danger of Extermination. "Finally it is agreed that the herd is not in danger of .actual extermination so long as its haunts on land are protected and the protected zone is maintained; that both land and sea killing non- yield an inconsiderable profit either to the lessees or to the pelagic sealers themselves." Signing this agreement are the four experts—two for the United States, Hamlin and Jordan, and two for Canada, Thompson and Macoun. THEN THE DIPLOMATS CONFERRED. mission was 'discussed'at great length. The Canadians felt that the commission afforded the best means of reconciling j all differences and of opening the way to reciprocity. The- discussion was of the most friendly nature throughout, and no sharp differences were allowed to crop out. :it was felt, however, that the plan of a commission was too large a question for immediate determination. A final undemanding w-as reached, therefore, that tr>e Canadian proposition should be reduced to writing as a basis for further negotiations. This closed the conference and the officials said their farewells, expressing sarii-faction in the cordial feeling which had characterized the meet- 'ESS of the last tri days. Sir Wilfrid and Sir Louis left at 15 o'clock this morning for Ottawa. IMPORT^NT~PENS70N~DECISION. Canada Insist, That All the Irritating Questions Shall Come into Court. Following the agreement of the experts the diplomatic officials assembled at Colonel Foster's house to discuss the larger question of putting an end to pelagic sealing and of settling other border controversies. Owing to the continued illness of Sir Julian Pauncefote, who is confined to his room, the British government was represented by the first secretary of the British embassy, Mr. Adam. Sir Wilfrid Laurier and Sir Louis Davies were present in behalf of Car.ada. Coi. Foster's power has been materially enlarged since the coming of the Canadian officials, for as a result cf the long and friendly talk between Sir Wilfrid and Secretary Sherman the latter had written to the Canadian premier stating that the president had empowered Colcne! Foster to treat on the various question? which Sir Wilfrid had called to ;he attention of Sherman, and with the co-operation of the British government to conclude treaties covering these subjects. This gave the meeting a broad significance. It began at -» p. m. and lasted until 7 o'clock. During these three hours the entire range of border affairs was discussed. Primarily the purpose of the meeting was to secure an agreement on Behrins sea. The Canadians made it clear, however, that they wished any plan of settlement to take a broader scope than the one subject of Behring sea and to embrace-the many sources of friction along the border. In this connection the slap of an i Soldier Suffering with Epilepsy Gets an. Increase to $50 Pet Month. Washington, Nov. 17.—Assistant Secretary of the Interior Uavis made what is perhaps the record of the department in handing down 4CO decisions in pension eases yesterday. One o^f the most important was on the claim of Marshal Laws'on, Tenth Tennessee cavalry, allowing-,an increase to $M where the pension bureau had refused any larger pension than J30 per month for epilepsy resulting while in line-of-duty service. In consequence of tbe frequent and periodical epilepsy it is clnlmed that the claimant need frequem;' and periodical attendance and constant watchfulness. The decision laid down has a significant bearing and Assistant Secretary- Davis says: "I am convinced that the appellajnt is entitled to the increised rating of $50 per month. In a case of this kind it is evident that, aside from the pathological effects of the disease itself, a large share of the danger to the soldier lies in the fact that he may be seriously injured by falling during an attack, as he was when so seriously burned in 1895. I am satisfied that the mental and physical condition of appellant as produced by his disease makes necessary aid and attendance, as described in the act of July 14, 1S92, and that he is entitled to the rating therein provided." STRIKE AT ANTNDIANA MINE. Employment of Xeproes Makes the Striker* Desperate- -IJoycott Declared. Washington, Ind.. Nov. 17.—The strike of the Cabel & Co. miners, which has been on since last May. i= further from settlement than ever. Labor Commissioners Schmidt and McCormick have been in the c-ity for a week trying to adjust the differences, but without success. They have given up ihe task as hopeless. A proposition sumbitted by the miners (o the operator.? Monday evening was 'rejected. The operators have imported ,1 number of negroes from Kentucky, who are now operating the mines, and It is not improbabl" thai bloodshed will be the result in the near future. The miners have issued a circular •K-Mcli they are now distributing asking: every citizen to boycott the stores of Cabel & Kaufman. As time passes matters are growing more serious. Miners with no food, fuel or clothing, seeing their places in the mines filled by other men and they colored, are on the verge of desperation. May Be $:i5,000.000 to Distribute. New York, Nov. 17.—Arthur E. Valois, of .this city, attorney for Dr. Thomas W. Evans, the famous American dentist, whose death has been announced from Paris, makes the following statement: "There is no doubt the doctor was worth several millions. It iias been said about ?3n,000.000, but I pla,.-e that a little too high. Whether thert is a will is not yet known, but I do nat think a man of such large affairs 'would die intestate." There are several heirs, and it is expected that a large sum is given for the benefit of the public. Annual Congress of Baptist*. Chicago, Nov. 17.—Many of the ablest ministers and theologians of the Baptist church are in Chicago, and at 2 p. m. yesterday were present to open the annual Baptist congress, one of the most prominent religious bodies in the United States. About 200 ministers are in attendance, and many of them are from Illinois, as the meeting is held near their homes. The others are eastern men. Last evening the theologians discussed the question "Is Baptism a Prerequisite to the Lord's Supper?" In Death They Were Not Divided. Milwaukee. Nov. 17.—For fifty years Ludwig and Mary Hafemeister lived happily together. A few weeks ago they celebrated their golden wedding. Saturday Mary, who was 86 years of age, died. She \vas to have been buried Monday. The carriages for the funeral were gathering at her home, when it was announced that Ludwig, unable to bear up under his grief, had died of a broken heart. The funeral of the wife was postponed and husband and wife were buried together today. Young Woman Killed at a Crossing. LaCro^e, Wis.. Nov. 17.—Miss Naomi Me'.viKe. assiftant principal in the public schools at Bangor. while riding in a carriage with Miss Jennie Tromble was struck r-r. a crossing by the locomotive of a freight irair.. Sl;f> died of her injuries shortly afterward. She was 20 years, old and her home was at Davenport, la. Miss Tromble was hurt sen- -usiy. Crushed to Death Vnd'er Koclt. Barabco. Wi?.. Nov. 17.—An accident occurred at Ableman, this county, yesterday, in which August Milke lost his lift and Albert Yoeck was seriously and possibly fatally injured. The accident occurred soon after the force of men began work en the store ^uarry operated by the Northwestern Railroad company. A ledge of rock gave way. carryingseveralmenwithitdown a steep embankment a distance of thirty feet- August Milke was found crushed and dead and Albert Toe<-i seriously injur*! Czar Going to I£uHd a Town. Vienna, Nov. 17.—The Greek bishop of Canea, Island of Crete, has been notified by the Russian consul that the czar proposes to rebuild: at his own cost the burned Christian quarter of Cacea. and. to enlarge the orthodox Greek churciu Turkey Continues to Roost High with Reference to the Demands of Austria. 1TO SIGN YET OP AFT YIELDING, And Tomorrow at Noon There Will B« Austrian Warships at >Iei>iu»— Sultan Said to Have Lost His Head Over Hl» Grecian Victory, but May Yield at. the Last Moment—Lord Salisbury Kcfers to Greater Xew York ill a. Speech. London, Nov. 17.—It now appears that the statement made in a special dispatch from Vienna that the Turkish government, in reply to the demands of Baron de Caiice, the Austrian-Hungarian ambassador to the porte, had agreed to salute the Austrian Hag after dismiss- ins the vali of Adana. and the mutossari of Mersina for indignities offered to the Auatr'an Brazzafoli. was premature. The porte has not yielded to the Austrian demands. Dispatches from Vienna announce that up to midnight ye&- terday no intimation had been received of the intention of the Turkish government to dismiss the offending officials, or to salute the flag. If. however, the Austrian demands are not complied with by noon tomorrow, Baron de Caiice will leave Constlnople arid the Austrian warships will bombard Mersina. What Is Expected of the Sultan. The Vienna correspondent of The Times says: "It is now expected that the sultan will hold out until the last moment and then yield, which may appear to him a clever stroke of diplomacy and something for the Turkish official pres to boast of—a semi-victory of the Pad- ishah over the Christian powers. Eventually, however, it is Ss likely as. not to prove an unmitigated blunder, the r:on- sequencos of which will become manifest in the course of time. Abdul Hamid is evidently just now in a frame of mind calculated to inspire serious concern. Hi? easy victory over the Greeks, together with the indulgence he was accustomed to expect from Germany until lately, have completely turned his head. Other Demands of Austria. "The Neue Freie Presse says that Baron de Caiice has seized the opportunity of demanding from the porte binding assurances respecting other matters con- cernirg the Austrian company which works the Oriental railways and relative to which representations have already been made repeatedly at Constantinople." SALISBURY AT A MASS MEETING. Holds Up Greater New York as an Awful iLXiimjile to London. London, Nov. 17.—A great mass meeting undeiutjie auspices of the Nat'onal Union of 'Conservatives was held last night in the Albert hall under the presidency of Ear! Cadogan, lord lieutenant of Ireland, at which the principal speaker was the premier, the Marquis of Salisbury. No fewer than S.OOO persons were present, and the entire assembly rose at the entrance of Lord Salisbury, cheered him to the echo, and sang "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." Lord Salisbury, who seemed in the best of health and spirits, and who spoke with great animation, said that the situation was "not destitute of elements of apprehension, either at home or abroad." Referring to the disturbances on the northwest frontier of India he paid a glowing tribute to Lord Elgin, the viceroy, who he said, "has acted so worthily in the great crisis wherein he has been placed as to be completely absolved of all charges of bad faith." Speaking of foreign affairs Lord Salisbury denied that the government had yielded to France in the matter o£ Siam, Tunis or Madagascar. Turning to home affairs, he said, the government of London was a question which must be solved and could only be solved by giving to other and smaller municipal bodies a large part of the duties now performed by the London county council. He promised that the government would introduce legislation on the subject at the next session of parliament. "The uresent system," said his lordship, "is due to the modern passion for bigness of things, and is too unwieldy." He asked his hearers to look at what had been done across the ocean. "Do you want to be governed like New York? Yet the result there—which was watched with so much interest and which so many people deplore—was reached after an effort to amend admitted defects in the municipality by enormously increasing its area and bringing a much vaster-population under its range. The undertaking has failed lamentably because it could not obtain the assistance and co-operation of the only class of men by whom municipal institutions can be satisfactorily and thoroughly governed." At the meeting yesterday of the National Union of Conservatives a resolution was passed demanding countervailing duties equal to the sugar bounties paid by foreign countries. A delegate announced that he had received a letter from a. celebrity in the West Indies in which it was predicted that before long the "West Tndies will seek annexation to the United States. A resolution favoring a bounty to assist home wheat growers was defeated. ILucky Ouarrel lor tlie Gtrl. Chicago. Nov. .17.—After pleading with his sweetheart for £i reconciliation of a lovers' quarrel Edward Fink, 20 years old, drank carbolic acid and died. Fink, stood in front of the girl's -window and swallowed the drug, she watching him. She saw him raise the poison to his lips and shout "Hurrah, I'm off," and then fall writhing to the sidewalk. Felix Adler'n Idea of Cod. N«\v York, Xov. 17.—Felix Adler, president of the Society for Ethic.il Culture, would substitute a religion of the atate for that which now has as Its cen- .-ral object a personal God.

KeU-ham Demands That the Cofan«V Burn Xo D»vll|£bt. Chicago, Nov. 17.—There was a dramatic scene yesterday while the inquiry into ihe death of John B. Ketcham was in progress at the Indiana avenue home of his widow. But two witnesses haJ be»n examined by the deputy coroner and statements of the two attending physicians submitted, when it was announced that, owing to the inability of the chemist to complete the analysis of the stomach of the deceased, the inquest would be adjourned for a week. This brought Mrs. Ketcham to her feet in an Instant. "I want an investigation," she said. "and I want a thorough one, but I am not satisfied with this. I have some rights and I demand that they be considered before the Inquiry is postponed a week. That will not do. The chemist can conclude this work in less time than that. Think what I must endure in that time," continued Mrs. Ketcham, her voice breaking and her whole body trembling with emotion. "This investigation must be thorough. That is my right. Why can't it be continued in a. day or two?" Her pleading was not without effect, for it was finally decided to continue the inquiry Friday afternoon, by which time the chemist's analysis will have been completed. Ketcham will be buried in the family plot at Toledo. What promised to be a difficulty between Mrs. Ketchamar.d the ri'lativesof tbe dead clubman was averted yesterday by Mrs. Ketcham, who before the inquest was called, turned her alleged husbaid's body over to his brother. George Ketoham. who left with it for Toledo iasr. evening. A funeral service was held at Mrs. Ketcham's residence. MINERS AND OPERATORS MEET. Attempt Made to Settle, the Trouble in th* Prairie Stab-. Chicago, Nov. 17.— President Sweet, of ihe Northern Illinois Coal Operators' association, and State President Hunter, Secretary Ryan, and Messrs. Stanley, Hickey. Smith and Monoghan, of the executive board of the Miners' union.were in conference here yesterday relative to the situation in the Illinois mining district. Previous to this conference the operators had a meeting and consulted with President Sweet. It was agreed by the operators at the meeting to let President Sweet meet the miners alone. The members of the miners' union requested the conference with the operators, following the instructions of tne fm-ator convention, which decided to -irbiirate the difficulty, if possible. Th* entire Wi'mington coal field is now idle, the 600 'Diners wno were at work having again consenteJ to join the strikers ai'd av.-ait the results of the union leaders' Attempt to effect a settlement.
