NEW Yoiuc, March 4. — A special cablegram to The Tribune from London says Lord Salisbury has informed the Washington authorities that he is unwilling, pending arbitration proceedings in tho Behring sea dispute, to consent to a renewal of the modus vivendi of last year. He is willing, however, to take the necessary steps for putting a stop, during the coining season, to pelagic sealing within thirty miles of the Pribyloff islands. The Washington correspondent of The Tribune, who was ordered to make inquiries regarding the matter, telegraphs his paper that The Tribune's London dispatch is practically confirmed there. At any rate, he says, its correctness is not denied. The Washington dispatch continues: "As long ago as last November. Lord Salisbury began making difficulties and raising objections to a renewal of the modus Vivendi. As these were not based, apparently, upon any substantial grounds, little importance seemed to attach to them, so long as the treaty itself, referring the entire controversy to arbitration, remained unsigned. Even as late as last week, or about the time that Lord Salisbury finally agreed to authorize Sir Julian Pauucefote to sign the treaty, there was no reason to believe that the British government would in the end resist a proposition so eminently fair, and so absolutely necessary, in order to protect from utter destruction, the fast dwindling seal herds." It is difficult to imagine the reason for Lord Salisbury's refusal to renew the modus vivendi. Whatever it is, the practical effect will be the indiscriminate slaughter of tens of thousands of seals, and possibly their extermination. The proposition which Lord Salisbury is fiaid to be willing to entertain — to present seal from being taken within thirty miles of the Pribyloff islands, is absurd on the face of it. It is absolutely impracticable, in fact so impracticable that it is difficult to believe that it was made in good faith. How is an imaginary line to be established in the neighborhood of the se;i islands which are almost half the year hid in impenetrable fogs? ____ LONG DELAYED PAY DAY. ludlitu Scout 14 I'.agiu Rer.ivlne Money for Services in the Sixties. ST. PAUL, March 7.--S. H. Elrod, United States disbursing agent, began Monday uioruiug iu St. Paul to pay off the claims of the surviving Sioux scouts and the -descendants of the deceased, who served in the Indian wars of the early sixties, and who have not been included among those residing on the Sisaeton restrvation in South Dakota. Mr. Elrod has on his list the names of 138 original scouts and soldiers, but about two-thirds of these are dead, and in these instances the funds will be paid to the descendants. The amount to be distributed is $126,000, which gives each claimant something over $900. This is a case of long delayed justice, as the claims of these Indians have been standing against the government for over twenty years. The Bering Son <>uegtion. WASHINGTON, March 7.—The president has taken the Bering sea question in hand and in the enforced absence of Mr. Elaine on account of sickness, had an extended interview with Hon. J. W. Foster, who has matters iu charge in the state department. Lord Salisbury's refusal to renew the modus vivendi leaves the questions in dispute where they were prior to June, Ib90.

WASHINGTON, March 7.— The debate in the house on the order from the committee rules setting apart March 22, 23 and 24 for tho consideration of the Bland silver bill was prefaced by a lively parliamentary controversy upon the ruling of the chair as to the priority of the order over the reading of the journal. Immediately after the prayer by the chaplain Mr. Bland asked for immediate consideration of the order. To this Mr. Tracy of New York objected on the ground that it was not in order nntiJ after the journal had been rend. An appeal from the speaker's decision was taken, but the chair was sustained by 11 vote of 1U4 to 7;J.

NBV; YORK, March ». — The following announcement is made here: Every member of the national Democratic committee will receive in the next, few days (i letter approved by the provisional eoumrittoo of the anti-Hill party in ihi.* .state. This letter declares in effect that tlw anti-Hill Democrats are not wedded to Cleveland, and will accept any good Democrat who can carry Ne\v York. They will contest the Hill delegation chosen at the midwinter Albany convention, because it does not represent New York Democracy. The most important declaration in the letter is that Cleveland ia himself to be blamed for the "tness" in winch the party has got itself. The letter was written originally to Dr. W. A, Anderson, a prominent Cleveland Democrat from Wisconsin. When read to other members of the committee it was approved by Mr. Mayor Grace, E. Ellery Anderson, ex- Secretary Fairchild and others, and copies were ordered to be sent to every member of the Democratic national committee. It declares that thousands of Democrats are opposed to Hill, regardless of Cleveland. The letter contniues: "If tho contesting delegation is thrown out at Chicago and Hill is nominated we cannot answer for the result. Cleveland and nearly all the leaders will probably support the ticket, but there are many men who are little inclined to submit any further to the impositions practiced for the past few years. These men rightly regard the Hill convention af a proceeding which would be set aside in a court of law for fraud and duress. In some counties these men have held off from the contesting movement for the avowed reason that they want to see Hill nominated so as to finish him forever. The majority against him in this state would be anywhere From EO.OOO to 100,000 Votes. "If Cleveland or any man of his wing of the party is nominated by an organization of the st;ite the opposition within the party wovild be u mere bagatelle. Nobody really cares for Hill, and his whole strength comes from the fact that ho is supposed to be 'in it.' "A contest will not injure Cleveland if the trouble is taken in other parts of the country to investigate the real situation iu New York. Whether it does injure him or not cannot affect the movement. Probably ho is responsible for letting them (the mil managers) get his friends into such a bad mess. Of course, it would be safer to nominate the man who stands the best chance of carrying other states than New York, whether he be Cleveland or somebody else. Cleveland would probably poll the most votes here, as his great outside strength would cause the Murphy-Hill men to run to cover. But it would be as well to nominate a good Western candidate or Governor Russell. Iu fine, we have not voted yet. and we claim the same right to contest at a national convention which our adversaries practiced when they contested county and state conventions. We claim to stand on precedent and we claim that our opponents are irregular. We are rapidly gathering in the old Tilden leaders, and if our movement develops as it has promised lately there will be no difficulty in proving in Chicago that we represent the Democratic party of this state." REV. NOAH PORfER. Venvernblc 'tSs-Prosidout of Ttiile C*3» legc ])los nt, Now Tlnvcti. NEW-HAVEN, Conn., March 4.—Nonh Porter. D. D. LL.

Of the 100 workmen in the three overturned cars seven were killed instantly and thirteen others hurt, some seriously. CEDE LANDS TO STATES. by EVENTS *)F A WEEK, nf Cm-font Interest Mention. Given Brltf The Bill for Tluit 1'urposo Approved tiio House Sub-Committee. WASHINGTON, March 4.—The sub-committee of the committee on public lands haa completed a bill which provides for the cession of all public lands other than military lands and lands occupied as Indian and military reservations, to the states in which such lands are located. This is such an entirely new proposition, and goes so much further than the original proposition of ceding only the arid lands to the state, that it will undoubtedly provoke much discussion and its passage be much delayed. The bill will be presented to the full committee on Friday and be introduced in the house next Monday. CONGRESSMAN KENDALL DEAD.

IIIK Status iu Connection with the Presidential Nomititttiii Cleared. WASHINGTON, March 6.—The situation surrounding tho Republican presidential nomination has been partially cleared within the past week by the definition of the status of one of the gentlemen named in connection with the nomination. Several conferences of friends of General Alger have been held to discuss the probabilities in his favor and it may be said that in deference to the views of his friends he has decided to make no aggressive canvass for support against President Harrison. Among those who are said to have counselled this course are the Michigan senators and Mr, J. S. Clarkson, chairman of the national Republican committee. They advised him, it is said, to be satisfied with the support of his own state delegation, which it is assumed will be given him without question. Then, at Minneapolis, if it should develop that President Harrison cannot command the support of a majority of the delegates, General Alger and his friends will be in a position to seek the votes of delegates without antagonizing the administration. This course, they argue, will result more satisfactory and substantially than any other he could pursue. INSTRUCTED FOR CLEVELAND. Hbod« Inland Democrats Favor the Kl- Prealdent'a Nomination.
