WILL ALSO CAUSE MUCH WEATH For People Who rail to Meet the Requirements— Tflac'H- Sealskin Treated Like a Plague, or More So — Commissioner Evans Moving to Abolish the Pension Attorney Entirely—Fostoffice Kule ait to Veteran*—Eckels Steps Out of Office. Washington, Dec. 31.—The secretary of the treasury, with the approval of the president, has issued regulations under the act of congress signed Wednesday prohibiting the takins; of sealskins by American citizens except on the I'ribylof Islands, and inhibiting- the importation into this country of pelagic sealskins. The regulations provide that no sealskins, raw, dressed, dyed or otherwise manufactured, shall be admitted to entry in the United Slates except there be attached to the invoice a certificate signed by the United States consul at the place of exportation that said skins'were "not taken from seals killed -within the wafers mentioned in said act. specifying in detail the locality of such taking, whether on land or at sea, an<i also the person from whom said skins were purchased in their raw and dressed state, the date of such purchase and the lot number. Consuls shall require satisfactory evidence of the truth of such facts by oath or otherwise. Keffulation* Are Iron Bound. The regulations then provide that every article manufactured in whole or in part from fur sealskins to be imported into the United States Is required to have legibly stamped thereon the name of the manufacturer and the place of manufacture, and shall be accompanied by a statement in writing under the oath of the manufacturer that the skins used in said article were taken from seals not killed at sea within the proscribed waters mentioned, specifying the locality in detail, a;i,d also the person from whom said skins were purchased in their raw and dressed state, the date of said purchase and the lot number. This rule would take from a man's hands the sealskin gloves he wore on arrival at New York if he could not prove them made of skin taken on the Pribylof Islands. All sealskins or manufactures thereof nof*coming inside the regulations are seized and destroyed. Another Troublesome Kule. Of course sealskin articles which are taken out OL" this country and brought back are spared, but another rule makes them liable, no inatter how little sealskin there is in them, to be ripped to pieces in order to find out whether properly stamped on the inner surface, and besides must be accompanied with E. consular certificate, A sealskin purse or reticule may be carried out of this country by a lady making a foreign tour, but when it comes back again it is liable to confiscation unless "the lining thereof is so arranged that the pelt of the skin underneath shall be exposed for examination," unless the owner shall have taken the precaution before starting on her voyage to obtain "a certificate of ownership from the collector of customs of the port of departure." PEXSIOX ATTORNEY OUT OF DATE. men 1 .: ocecteti otnveen a-iton. in Benail of Canada, ami the war department, as to relief for the Klondifcers, contemplates that the relief expedition shall be executed jointly by the United States army and a force of the mounted , police of Canada, which constitutes the ; military arm of the Dominion. TSe ' United States force will proceed with the relief stores to ISJcaguay, where they grill be joined by the Canadian mounted police, about forty in number, and the two forces will then proceed together to the points where the relief Is to be distributed. No duties will bu imposed on th>e stores carried by the relief expedition. Sifton left for Ottawa yesterday at 4 p. m. He Is Ex-Comptroller Now. Washington, Dec. 3L— Comptroller of the Currency James H. Eckels, whose 'resignation took effect today, called urion the president yesterday afternoon to pay his respects and- say good-bye. Eckels left for Chicago this morning. Bis successor, Charles GL Dawes. will qualify us comptroller today, and take c,.,a.rge of the office next ilonday. Bow to Scad Relief to Cub*. Washington. Dec. 31. — The secretary of state has directed the disbursing of-' fleer of the state department, Frank A. Brana;;an, to take charge of any money and supplies for Cuban destitute that may be delivered to him and forward the same to Consul General Lee ac Havana. He TV'ill Huve No Business If Commissioner EVHIIS Han His Way. Washington, Dec. 31.—Commissioner of Pensions Evans has been giving some attention to a proposition whereby the services of pension attorneys encased In the prosecution of claims before the office may be dispensed with and their work done by officials under government supervision. Informally he has, been discussing the matter with members of the bouse committee on invalid pensions, but is not yet prepared to outline the details of his clan. The present system, he says, is wrong: and should have been done away with long ago. Discontinuing the services of the attorneys would result in a great saving to both pensioners and the government, and liability to frauds in issuing pensions would be reduced to a minimum. Under government supervision the pension bureau would have direct control of the pei'sons appointed to look after the cases, whose business itwould be to see that all honest claims were promptly and intelligently presented. The commissioner notes the fact Xha.t $13.500.000 has been paid out during the past thirteen years to pension attorneys by applicants for the prosecution of their claims. Talking about pensions the postoffice department has ruled that an ex-Union soldier drawing a pension under the dependent pension law may be reinstated in a position he formerly occupied in the service. The case arose in connction with the application of a veteran employed in the Philadelphia, postoffice. In order to obtain a pension; under the dependent act a claimant must swear that he is without means of support ar.d is unable to do manual labor. ______ Reciprocity with Ven«zael»- "Washinston, Dec. 31.—It is said that erne of the purposes of the present visiK to "Washington of the United Statea siinister to Venezuela. Loomis. is to start negotiations "or a. reciprocity treaty between Venezuela and the United States. This- is rather an unexpected step, ss Ven-jzuela. was one of the few Sontb. American countries which did not make a reciprocity treatj- under the former system. At that time, however. Venezuela suffered 'by having her coffee practically excluded from the United States because Brazil and other :offee-porducing countries had the reduced dt^ies under reciprocity treaties.

CORBETT TELLS SOMETHING NEW. Challenges Fit* gold Say» the Latter Admitted a I-Ieklnjf ;»t Camon. Cincinnati, Dec. 31.— James J. Corbett yesterday gave out for publication his challenge to fight Robert Fitzsimmons. The document Is ironical to the point of insulting. Jim chooses, he says, to assume that Bob's alleged insistence on Jim proving himself in Bob's class, ts a mistake of the press, and to show that it must be so, says: "You cannot so soon have forgotten your remark to me at Carson, Just after the battle. 'Jim,' you said, in your simple, earnest way, 'I'll never fight again. You've given me a bloody good licking.' You, the winner, uttered these words, with face and body so battered as to leave no doubt of your sincerity, while I, the loser, listened with never a. bruise or scratch from head to foot which could contradict you." After some remarks about what the public expects him to do, Corbett proceeds as follows: "The day we sign articles I will give you $1,000 in recognition of your courtesy. The moment you enter the ring, ready to offer me •ba*lT'e. -I will giva-you^ -a .second- $1,000 in token of my pleasure. Upon the completion of the tenth round, if you are still undefeated, I will give you a third $1,000 as a souvenir of my surprise. Upon defeating you, no matter in what round, I will give you $2,000 more as a reminder that I am not an ungenerous foe. "On the other hand, should you again defeat me, I promise if still able to move to place my hat upon my head, and then removing it in your honor to proclaim you in frank and unmistakable terms to be my superior and state that I then and there quit forever all possible claim to the championship of the world." Corbett signs himself "champion of America." Chicago, Dec. 31. — "We will pay no attention to it," said Martin Julian when asked what he and Fitzsimmons would do in regard to Corbett's formal challenge. "We told Corbett what he can do," continued Julian. "Bob did not want to re-enter the ring at all, but at last I persuaded ;him to promise to tight again on certain conditions. These were, as I explicitly stated, that he would consider fighting two men — Corbett and McCoy— and that he should fight them only after Corbett has defeated Maher and after McCoy had defeated the man named by me. I have named Choynski." CLOSE OF THE BIG, WHEAT DEAL, Will Be Wound Up Without the SenMktioa That Hag Been Predicted. Chicago, Dec. 31.— The closing scenes in the Letter deal in December wheat will have been enacted by 2 o'clock this afternoon and the curtain runs down on everything of a speculative nature pertaining to the affair. By that time, too, there will probably have been delivered about 9,000,000 bushels of wheat. Yesterday's action of the market and the purchases of Dec^inber by Leiter brokers i;eem proof that there is.no December shortage now outstanding. It is generally expected that the great deal will be wound up without the sensation that was looked for. Horticultural Society. Springfield, His., Dec. 3L— The following- officers have teen elected by the horticulturalists: President, H. 4L Diiniap. Savoy; secretary, L. B. Bryan, Princeton. A resolution was adopted petitioning Governor Tanner to amend the call of the special session of the legislature so as to include adequate legislation to protect farmers and fruit growers against the deadly San Jose scale.

H« i* Galena's oldest resident, bavins here seventy-one years. Were Tether Dear Charmer Aw»y— Union Quarrel that Is a Sort of too End"er iu lt» Action on the Employers and Provide* Trouble at Each End— Mines in Colorado Close Down—Scale for th* Iron Workers. Pittsburg, Dec. 31.—Another strike of window glass workers which may prevent the genera) resumption on Jan. 8 is threatened. After the settlement of the wage differences the factory of W. P. Jones & <fc>., at Eaton, Ind., was started with cutters and flatteners who are not members of the league, but who are connected with the blowers'.assembly of the Knights of Labor. The. flatteners and cutters claim that they are non-union men, and say.a strike will •be ordered if members o£ the fsatteners' and cutters' organization are not substituted. President Burns, of the blowers and gatherers insist that the men shall * not be disturbed, and that if the manufacturers discharge them he will order out ais men. Prom this it would seem that if the manufacturers do not live up to their agreement with the cutters and flatteners they will have a." strike" of" "these two trades on their hands, and If they do live up to their agreement the gatherersand blowers will strike. In the meantime the manufacturers are keeping quiet and refuse to say what their course will be. Mlnei Close Do up in Colorado. Denver, Dec, 31.— A.3 a result of the order issued by the executlvs committee of the miners' unions of northern Colorado, calling upon the men to demand higher wases or strike, the Bex Coal Mining company has closed down its two mines at Louisville, This action will probably 1 '$& followed by the other companies operating in northern Colorado, and ail the: miners in the district will be thrown outof employment.

Braddpck, Pa., Dec. 31.—The new wage scale for the employes of the Edgar Thomson Steel works and the blast furnaces has been made and will go into effect tomorrow. The signatures of the men to the contract are required on or before Jan. 1. The officials claim that threre will be an equitable adjustment of the wages of the tonnage men. but the wages of the day men will remain practically the same as they were during the past year. It is said that owing to improved machinery in the steel department the cut in tonnage will rate from 5 to 20 per cent. The workmen are expected to make equally as much money as they did at the beginning of the last wage- scale, owing to the facilities for turning out more work. Hazelton, Pa., DI>C. 31.—A committee of the striking employes in the Honeybrook district had a conference with Superintendent Gomer Jones, the reault of which was an amicable settlement of a strike begun Wednesday.

Pittsburg, Dec. 3L—The main topic of discussion on the streets of Homestead yesterday, says The Commercial-Gazette, was the reduction in wmfe-es given the tonnage men employed at the Carnegie steel milL It is difficult to estimate the number of men the reduction wi!l affect, but it is believed that at least 1.000 men ar« employed on a tonnage basis at Homestead alone, with an eqtial numjijer at the Edgar Thomson and Duquesne "plants, and several hundred at the Upper arid Lower Union mills in Lawrenceville. Thus 3,500 men will be -expected to sign, the new tonnage scale. It would be useless to attempt to give r an adequate description ef the average-reduction, as each man zpoken to had a different average, running from 5 to 75 per cent Two extra saw* have been put on the eut girder rails, wnich'will remove the finished worK quickly from the ™tn_ but otherwise each man aaM that no fan- proved machinery had been pot in during tlie year to increase the output, and the only Increase had been brought about by their own toil. • Th« men .in toe 33-ioct mill, met irttfc the R«yml tb« fvod pw*. wfule* 'iiwiyPw* ftOYAL lAJQl^C POWOU OO*, HAW tendent ot the mm last evening vt> CUISB tb.^ redaction, but the men refused to sign the hew scale.
