, WBDJmaiUTf IOWA. fna co-ant de Paris is expected to visit this country in the antettn. it wiwthe eoant, who daring the civil wat served on the staff of Gen McClellan, and made tasting friendship with ttany American officers. Asiofto the guests at the Stanley-Tennant] wedding, in Westminster Abbey, *ere lii street Arabs, pnpils pf the London Sagged School Union, who 'were present by special invitations of the bride. THE most indignant city in the country probably is not Philadelphia, which is threatened with a drop from third place, but Denver whose census relufn shows an increase of only four-hundred per cent. It is very evident that there are not enough folks to go around in this great and glorious nation. A PAPBB that- discusses household mat' tersaskst '-Whatshall WB do with our servants?" That depends. In this part of the world we send some to the legislature and some to jail. The balance we permit to take a day ofi* eight times a *eek. A NEWIS married Hindoo girl ',is interdicted by custom, when living under her husband's roof, from talking to any one but her young sister-in-law or brother-in law. A suicide has been committed by a little Hindoo wife in a village in Burdwan for the pathetic reason that she could find "no one to or play with." ALTHOUGH, the death penalty is not legal in Wisconsin, and no execution has ever taken place in the state, an Indian has been sentenced to be hanged at Oshkosh by a United States judge, involving another curious conflict of state and national authority. It seems that the Indian murderei committed his offense within the limits of the reservation, and thus was amenable to the laws of the general gov. ernment alone. In defense of the laws of the state President Harrison will be petitioned to commute the sentence to imprisonment for life. THE Census Bureau at Washington is now busily engaged in counting the returns from all over the country. It is estimated that the total population of the United States will foot up to something .like 66,000,000. The rate of increase in the West and in some parts of-" .the South has been very rapid, although, if one-half of the complaints regarding the work of the enumerators are true, there must be a good many persons left out of what Mr. Mantilini would call "the demnitiou total." A million a dav is the rate as which the Census Bureau is progressing, so it will be two months yet before the result is definitely known. Meanwhile it is obvious that we are big jmough tojvnit patiently WHILE Pasteur institutes for the scientific treatment of hydrophobia are being established in the large cities, the mad stone still holds its own in the rural districts. If the granger when, bitten by a • mad dog can obtain amadstone, he seems to think himself just as .well off as it he should go to a Pasteur institute and be cured. The madstone is just now almost as actively engaged in the treatment of dog bites as the scientific doctors, And it is only fair to say that people to .whose wound it is applied seldom suffer from hydrophobia. Whether this is- due to the efficiency of the stone or to the sound health of the dog is another matter. At uny rule, the belief that the madstot.e is possessed of magical curative power is still a very common superstition. ; THE Wisconsin Prohibitionists in the State convention at Madison, Tuesday, nominated Dr. Charles Alexander, of Eau Claire, .for Governor, and a full State ticket. The usual resolutions were passed denouncing the liquor traffic, demanding legislation in favor of the farmer and fav oring woman suffrage. There was some excited oratory over a plank in the platform indorsing the Bennett law,, the up shot of which was that the reference to the law was stricken out. T. C. Richmond, a prohibition leader for years, bolted the convention, and there was a vigorous kick from the supporters of the Bennett law on account of the refusal to endorse it. THE Alliance has now'captured the regular: democratic nomination for governor in two southern states, Georgia and Ten nessee. The convention at Nashville has just nominated on the 25th ballot, John B. Buchanan for governor. Mr. Buchan an is a little over 40, a farmer, president of the state alliance, and an officer of. the agricultural wheel, an organization similar to the alliance. He has been the candidate of the farmers from the first, and went into the convention with nearly half the delegates pledged to him. The preliminary canvas has been closely contested, and a great deal of bad feeling has been developed among the supporters of the leading candidates, THIS year has deen full of disasters, causing loss of life. Thecyclono began its deadly work in Kentucky January 13, with a loss of 11 lives. The next catastrophe was Feburary 22, when 65 were' killed by tho flood at Presjott, Ariz. T,; then March 27, 440 were killed by the Louisville cyclone; Apri) 6, 12 by floods in' the south; April 22, 15 by a cyclone in Arkansas; June 5, 15 by a cyclone in Nebraska; June 12, 12 by a cloud-burst in Kentucky; June 30, 12 by a cyclone in. Northern Illinois. To these the present month contributes the Minnesota disasters, with the loss of some ' 120 more lives Steamboat explosions, " railway accidents und fires have added to •the account. The loss of life from these causes is not less than 1,300 to 1,500 up t date this year. . liter NEWS WHEAT growers in North Dakota art considerably alarmed over the report that elevator companies in the state will refuse to store grain this year. Heretofore nine- tenths of the crop of the state has beei bought by the elevator companies upon the Quluth and Minnerpolis quotations. A farmer could store his grain in these elevators for 15 days for nothing, and to keep it in store as long as he (Cesirec to pay a small fee therefor. The ewise of this change .of base U said to ha the new law which makes all public warehouses pay an annual license of ?2.50 a 1,000 bushels capacity. The elevators will take the ground that they are not public elevators, and the farmer who hunu't the money to hold his crop nor the place to put it will be compelled to sell at whatever price the company sees fit to allow him. The principal elevators expect, by forcing private buyers out of the small stations and agreeing upon a price, to again obtain absolute coAtrol of th« state's crop, which this year promises to be enormous.

These _ are locations .of definite negotiations! it is stated further that theimtnense corporation contemplates gathering in every cattle pen of consequence in the country. Developments today would indicate that the syndicate is destined to bo the most gigantic.corporation in America. DBNVEK, Col. — The census supervisors for Colorado, 'so far as they have completed the work will be able to announce the population of that state to be very close -to 400,000. Pueblo lays claim to the honor of being thi only city in America which has doubled its population in two years. The returns in '88 gave that city 14,500 while those for'90 show 27,455. PHOF. MAYO saysjthe power of the Mpr- inonstis broken in Salt Lake city and vicinity. Thev are now in the minority, and have hardly a hand in the govennment of ths city in "which they were once supreme. The entire municipal government and the schools have passed into the hands of the Gentiles. The social customs which distinguished the Mormons are fast disappearing. There is even a society of young Mormon women who pledge themselves not to marry a. polygomist. All of which is very enouragmsr. THE body of John_ Ericsson, tho great inventor, now lies in the marble cemetery in Second street; New York, where it is inclosed in a hermetically sealed metallic coffin, which is to be placed in an oik box before it is removed to the Baltimore or the Philadelphia, one ot which will have the honor of carrying the remains to their last restinar-place in the inventor s native land. Every possible honor will be done to the body of the man who did so much for the American navy. The body will be a in cliarge of . a detachment of marines' ; and sailors and a procession of civic societies of this city and Brooklyn and several Grand Army posts.

Senate.— -In the senate to-day Mr. Frye from the select committee on Pacific railroads, reported back the senate bill authorizing the secretary of the treasury to settle the indebtedness to the government of the Sioux City & Pacific railroad. It was placed on the calendar. Consideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill was then resumed' An amendment to the sundry civil appropriation bill was agreed to this afternoon, which appoints a number of managers of the National Soldiers' home, to fill vacancies. Among the Dumber is John C. Black of Illinois. Among tho amendments reported by the committee on appropriations and agreed to by the senate are the following. Inserting at. appropriation for the construction of buildings at, and the enlargement -of military posts, from 8650,000 to 8800,000. Notice was given that the tariff bill would be taken up at 2 o'clock Monday. House, —In the house to-day, Mr. McRea, of Arkansas, introduced a joint resolution directing the secretary of the interior tc suspend the issue of patents' for lands to the Union Pacific railroad company, until the adjustment of the debt due to the United States by said company, and authorizing the attorney general to institute, suth legal opinions necessary to subject the lands granted to and held by the company to the payment Of the debt duo tho United States. It was referred to the committee on public lands. The house then resumed consideration of the original package bill. Mr. Thompson, of Ohio, said it was contended the bill would violate the constitution an was an attempt to delegate to the state tho power conferred upon congress. Mr. Lehlbnck (N. J.) said intemperance has never been rooted out by legislation. From his own personal observation he was satisfied intemperance was on the decline. This was largely due to the use of mild beverage— b»er. To prohibitionists and fanatics, however, this was the most detested of all stimulants. Ho believed tho substitute proposed by Adams would meet the requirement*. There was one sure way in which tho people of Kansas and Iowa could get rid of the original package stores, and that was not to pay orrecognize them. Mr, Hayes opposed the legislation, preferring a little liberty of a good deal' of sentimental state.. rights. He contended the prohibitory law of Iowa was not enforced, and denied (from observations made on a recent visit to his state) that there worn any original package saloons in low^. At least he had not seen one nor had he heard of one being there until he returned to Washington, Mr. Perkins (Kas.) believed in the constitutionality and propriety of the proposed legislation. This was not a question v/hether the people in their state organizations had a a, right to protect their homes, firesides and families from unlicensed, unrestrained, unrestricted rum trailic, At present, tho package decision might effect the prohibition states alor.o; but in a little time all the states would be infested by lawless characters who kept original package stores, and license lows would be violated. There ought to bo a vote cast against tho proposed legislation. After further debate, the house took a recess, the evening session to be for debate only. MONBAY, July 21. Senate. —The select committee on relations with Canada was authorized to continue its investigations during the coining recess and the next session.

Mr. Outhwaitc criticised the method in which the important measure was being discussed, for it ; was not being considered. If Eroperly amended he would support the ill. Mr. Breckenridge also opposed the bill, which went over until to-morrow. Adjourned. TIIUIIBEAY, July 24.

Uuvnstutlon Naur MarHliiill, Minn. MINNEAPOLIS, Miwn.—A Marshall, Minn., special to the Journal says: At 5:30 p. in. Tuesday a black cloud resembling a great serpent, reached downward from the dense black masses of storm clouds that had formed durincr the afternoon, and moved in a southeasterly direc- ion demolishing the buijdings of throe farmers living nine miles northwest of here. A child of Felix Deareau had its leg broken. Another had its head crush- cu and died during the night. Mrs. Dear- eau. too, was seriously bruised. Mr. A. M. Opdahl and child were blown by the cyclone onto a wire fence and seriously bruised. Two of Opdahl's horses were carried from the barn to a pasture near by without injury.

If we ore fortunate when a man like Mr. Lowell, or his suc.essors Mr. Phelps or Mr. Lincoln, is our representative in England, how fortunate are we when a multitude of those who also represent what is best and most characteristic in America are familiar figures in foreign countries! •There are many such often going and coming by whom we should all be glad to be estimated. They have, indeed, a teri- ous responsibility, of which wo will hope they are conscious. Although • they have no official character, they are still our em- bassadors, ordinary, if not extraordinary, and their conduct credits or discredits all their countryman. In other years the official American Minister in a foreign city has been known under tha illusion of the grape, and attired^ in raiment which was certainly not official, to harangue from the balcony of his hotel the wondering passengers in the street. Another, dangling his feet from tho sides of a borouche, with a cigar at the Bowery angle in his mouth, and a fiercely cocked hat on'his head, announced in another city that he'd be'—if ho wasn't a free American citizen. Happily we lire no longer nl the mercy of Choc- Uiw reprcsentativ s.

The advice could be put in throe words—Don't do it. Possibly there might come an .occasion—saj once in a lifetime—when a good round bit of the genuine article "slang" would prove funny. But to hoar vulgar words used by a gentle girl is almost invariably shocking. I remember pausing two girls in the street, and hearing one of them say, "I'll bet you a quarter. It gave mo a shiver. And when a group of school-girls fill their con- versation—aa, ulas! they often do—with one slang phrase after another, the cftoi't on an outsider is painfully disagreeable, Tho habit of talking slang grows rapidly. It is like reporting a bit of scandal. Have you never noticed if you say an unkind word against a neighbor, how quickly a chance comes to any another? And with just that sump appalling habit of use- ing cureless words incro'ases. Weeds grow rapidly, • There is a plenty of good strong Englieh to give expression to wit, drollery, indignation, or sympathy, without recourse to the phrases which belong to horse-jockeys, gamblers, tipplers, and vagabonds. Ihe street Arab picks up slung us he does thu ends of old cigars from the gutter. Surely a well-bred girl is not on the same level in her speech and manner. Why should she uso ulgar words uny more than she would stuin her hands? There ought to bo something akin to flowers in a fresh young girl. She need not be prudhh nor priggish. No one wishes her to say "prunes and prisms" to coax her lips into tho proper curves, But refined and dainty in speech us well ns in dress she surely ought to bo.

He can be taught to do most anything but speak. During an experience of fifteen years I have handled over 17,000 of the most vicious kickers, balkers, strikers, plungers, biters, bolters, shyers and horses possessing all other vicious habits khQWrt. I haveyet to find the horse 1 could. not by my methods conquer, subdue and make docile in a short time. It Is gratifying and with some feeling of pride that I mention the fact that 1 have not injured a single horse during niy long and successful career.' And it is a source of happiness to know that I have never been cruel to one of the noblest of dumb animals.; my methods are simple and perfect. It is recorded in history that Alexander was the first to ride and tame his steed Bacephaliis. He did it by mastering the horse and not by. sheer brutality. There is abig distinction between mastering and cowing the animal by cruel brutality. Many horses have more sense than Hibir riders. The equind knows when he is at the mercy of some inexperienced rider, and it only renders the nninml restive and apprehensive. A horse should never be deceived by words or action. When a driver or rider pulls the reins and sajs "wboa,"|he should mean it and stick to it. But to cry "whoa," jerk tho reins and lash .the horse at the same time is confusing and menns nothing. Equestrian pastime, 1 notice, is becoming a fnd, ana a commendable one, too, among ladies, Hundreds of them ride daily in the park and on the boulevard, 1 have often been asked what kind of saddles ladies should use, and how they should carry themselves in tne saddle. A lady's saddle should be carefully fitted to the horse and there should always be a third crutch. An extra leather girt should be used to keep the Haps of tho saddle in their places. The stirrup may be either like a man's, with a linin<r of leather or velvet, or it may bo a slipper, which is safer and easier to tho foot. As a rule the lady's whip is light, and it should be .carried more to threaten than to actually give punishment. If a lady so desires a spur should be used, and no doubt it wovld help toj animate the horse .at tho right moment. 1 am in favor of no instrument of torture, however, as the spur is often made when used by tho reckless and cruel. It should be buckled onto tho boot und a small opening made in the habit .with a string attached to tho inside, which is tied around tho ankle, thus keeping the spur always projecoing beyond tho folds of the habit. Sometimes a nose martingale is added for ornament, but no jorsethat throws his head up should be used by ladies. Tho mistake often made is in selecting tho moat stupid animal, fit only for n dray, for Indies to ride, when the most perfect goer should bo chosen. As a rule the idea seems to prevail that a horso with a beautiful outline will carry a lady, but it is an ejregious mistake. If it were left to the ladies to decide they would soon select suitable horses. Ladies are usually light, and a horse that will e isily carry them is generally unfit to mount the average man x because he is so much heavier. Few ladies who ride weigh more than 130 pounds, and, in fact, most of them weigh considerably less. It is shameful und ungallant to attempt to make tho scrub horse essentially a lady's horse. Now, my idea is that in point of soundness, notion, mouth and temper the lady's horse shonld bo unimpeachable. A gentleman's horse may be good yet wholly unable to canter, and so formed that he cannot be taught, therefore he is totally unsuited to n huly. On the other hand, every lady's horse should do his pace well. I know that many trot, but they should not bo furnished with the excuse that they cannot because their horses will not. Ii 1 size the lady's horse should be about 15 hands high, or from I4J4 to 15*£. for less than this allows the habit" to trail in the dirt, and more mnkes the home to lofty and unwieldy for u lady's use. In breaking a lady's horse, if he is of good temper and lino mouth little need bo done to make him canter easily and with the right leg foremost. This is necessary, because tho other leg is iincom- fortabio to the rider from her side position in the saddle. The breaker should therefore get the horse accustomed to start off with the right leg. He should also bend him thoroughly, so us to make him canter well in his hind logs und not with the disturbed action which we so often see. In, dismounting the horse should be brought to a dead stop, and his head held by an assistant. The lady then turns her knee back again from the position be- Iwecn tho outside crutch, takes her foot out.of tho stirrup and sits completely sideways. She should then put her left hand on tho gentleman's shoulder, who places bin right arm around her waist and lightly assists her to the ground. Be moderate, be temperate. No man can become a good horseman without first having complete control over himself. Be firm, be perscrvoring, bo honest. It is quitecommon to say "whoa," when it is only intended to go slower, or when tho horse has not stirred a footto lot him know of your presence. One day when your life may depend upon a "whoa" you will gnd that your horse is not stopped by it because you have entirely played it out of him. »Speak always in a natural tone of voice under all eircimi'slaiiecs.

A traveling mountain is found at tho Cascade!! of the Columbia.

The Indian traditions indicate immense movements of the moun tains hereabouts, long before white mer came to Oregon, and the early settlers immigrants, many, of them from Now England, gave the above mimed mountain ridge the name of "traveling mountain,'' or "sliding mountain."

WASHINGTON, July 28.—The president to-day sent to the house Of representatives, in answer to the resolution introduced by Representative Hitt, the official correspondence between the government of the United States and the government of Great Britain touching the seat fisheries of Behring sea. In his accompanying letter of transmittal to the president, Secretary Elaine, under date of Bar Harbor, July 19, regrets the delay in the transmission which the president directed on the llth inst., and says that the correspondence is still in progress. The -correspondence includes thirty separate papers, beginning with a letter fronf Mr. Edwards, first secretary of the legation and charge d'affaires after Minister West's recall, dated Aug. 24, 1889, and closing with one from Secretary Blaine to Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British minister, dated July 19, 1890. Relative to the statement that seizures were justified bytho fact they were engaged in a pursuit that is in itself contra mores apursuit which cf necessity involves a serious and permanent injury to the rights of the government . and people of the United States,' the .marquis says: "It is obvious that two tjUes* tions are involved, i. e., first, whether the pursuit and killing of fur seals in certain parts of the open sea is, from the pJiht of view of international morality, an ofTen 86 conlra bonus mores; and secondly whether if such bo the case, this fact justified tne seizure on the' high seas and the Subsequent • confiscation in time ot peace of private vessels of .a friendly nation, The purSuit of seals in open sea, under whatever circumstances, has never hitherto been considered .as piracy by a civilized state. Fur seals ure indisputably animals ferte -nature, and they have been universally regarded by the jurists us res'nullius until t/iey are caught. No person, therefore, can have property in them until ho^as actually re- ducfldthem into possession by capture. "Itrcquires something more than a mere declaration that the government or citizens of the United States, or even the countries interested ill the seal trade, are losers by tho certain course of proceedings, to render that course an immoral one. Her majesty's government wou d deeply regret that the pursuit of fur seals in the high seas by British vessels should involve even the slightcs 1 , injury to the people of tho United States. H a case bo proved, they will be ready to consider what measures can be properly taken for the remedy of such injury, but they would be unable on that ground tj depart from the principle on which the free commerce on the high seas depends. Respecting Elaine's statement of the exclusive monopoly enjoyed by' Russia, the marquis quotes from a letter of the United States minister in Russia which nation, in 1821, prohibited all foreign vessels from approaching Within 100 miles from the coast oHhe Behring straits to lha 51st degree north latitude) to the effect that the United States could admit no part of these claims. The marquis also says that Blame .must have been misinformed respecting the un intaerupted possession of the Unitejl State; from 1807 to 1880, and submits e_xtructs from reports of United States officers to show that duringthnt time British vessels 'were engaged nt intervals in fur seal fisheries with the cognizance of the United States government. The next letter in the series is from tho British minister to Blaino under the date of May 23d, and says as the secretary has confirmed the newspaper statements that the revenue cutters mid been ordered to Bcnring sea to seize foreign sealers, he is instructed to say, a formal protest against such interference with the British vessels will he forwarded without delay. Secretary Blaine on the 29th -wrote Sir Julian that he is instructed by the president to protest ugaiiist the course of the British government in authorizing, encouraging and protecting vessels which are not only interfering with American rights in Behring sea, . but which are doing violence as well to the ' rights of the civilized world. The president, ho says, is surprised that such a protest should bo authorized by Lord Salisbury, especially because previous declarations of his lordship would seem to render its impossible. The secretary then rapidly sketched tho history of tho negotiations under the previous administration and says: "You will observe from the llth November, 1887, to the 23d of April, 1888, Lord Salisbury had in every form of speech assented to ' the necessity of a close season for the protection ot seals." These assurances were given to the American minister, in Americiin charge, to the Russian ambassador, and on more than one occssion to two of thorn together. The United States had no reason, therefore, to doubt that the whole dispute touching the seal fisheries was practically settled. . Continuing, Secretary Blaine says that five days after that assurance, Lord Sulis' bury said that neither an act of parlia ment nor an order in Council could bo drafted "until Canada is heard from." Mr. Phelps, in his dispatch September 12th reported "his lordship staled the Canadian government objected to any such restrictions, and until its consent could bo obiuim-d. her majesty's government was not willing to enter into the convention." Says the secretary: "This government cannot but feel that Lord Salisbury would have dealt more frankly if in the beginning he hud no'informed Mr. Phulps." The Brit sh government would assuredly and rightfully complain if the agreement between her representative and the representative of the United States should il without notice, ae broken off by the United States on the ground that the state ol California was not willing it should be completed. In conclusion, he proposes, on behall of the president, that her majesty's government agree not to permit vessels to enter Bohrings «ea this season, in ordoi that time may bo secured for tho negotiations, that shall not bo disturbed by untoward events or unduly influenced by popular agitation. Juno 2nd, the secretary writes Sir Julian that the president believes tho arbitration cannot be concluded in tinu for this season, and suggests that Lore Salisbury make for a single season the regulation which in 1888 ho offered tc make permanent, us a step which woulci certainly lead to a friendly agreement. To Una (he minister replies, June 3rd, that a further examination of tho question has satisfied his lordship that such an extreme measure us that proposed in 1888 goes far beyond the requirements of the case. There would be no legal power to enforce tho observance of such an agreement on tho British vessels. Secretary Dluiuo replying Juno 4th suys: "Tho extreme measure proposed came from Lord Salisbury himself and concludes, the president does not conceal his disappointment that oven for the sake of securing the impartial arbitration her majesty's government is not willing ^o suspend, for u single season, the practice which Lord Salisbury described in '88 as 'the wanton destruction of a valuable industry,' and ^vhich this government has uniformily regarded as an unprovoked invasion of its established rights." Juno9lh, Sir Julian Pauncefote presents u, copy of a telegram from Lord Salisbury, in which ho regrets that the president should thiuK his telegram wanting in conciliation, but that it is beyond the power of his government to exclude the British or Ctinadiuu ships from uny portion of thu high seas, even for an hour, without legislative enactment, . i In reply, on the llth, Secretary Blaine says thi i government would be satisfied .if Lord Salisbury would by proclamation simply request British vessels to abstain from entering the Behring sea for the present season, in order to givo -full time for impartial negotiations, Sir Julian, Juno llth, writes Blaino he has informed Lord Salisbury that Blaiuo could not give assurance that British sealing vessel? would, uot be interfered with during tho negotiations, tvud expresses the hope that the decision is not final, and that while there is yet time the command- er»»f the United, Stuies revwiufl pru,Uer,» will bo instructed to tibstaui.

That pending the award, all iftterftrence with British sealing vessels absolutely cease, that the United States if the uward should be ndverse to them will compensate British subjects for Ibstes which they may sustain by reason of their compliance with the British proclamation. Irt the next communication, dated tho first of the present month, Lord Salisbury, referring to Blaine's criticism upon the abrupt close of the London negotiations from the statement made to him by.United States Minister Phelps as follows: "Under the peculiar political circumstances of America at this moment," said Phelps, "with the general election pending:, it would be of little use, and indeed hardly practicable, to conduct any negotiation to its issue before the election had taken place. On the last of June Secretary Blaine addressed to the British minister a very long letter in answer to Lord Salisbury's communication, in which the latter stated that Secretory John Quincy Adams protested against Russia's claim to exclusive jurisdiction over Behring sea. Secretary Blaine says: "Tho quotation which Lord Salisbury makes is unfortunately a most defective, erroneous and misleading one. The conclusion is separated from the premise, the comma isturneu into a period, an important; qualification as to time is entirely erased without even a suggestion that it had ever formed a part of tho text, and out of the eighty-four words logically and insepuratcly connected, thirty-five are dropped from Mr. Adam's paragraph in Lord Salisbury's quotation. The secretary says further: "Neither by the treaty with Russia of .1825 nor by its renewal of '43, nor by its second renewal in '59, did Great Britain gain any right to take seals in the Behring sea. in taut, those treaties were a prohibition upon her which she steadily respected so long as Alaska was a Russian province. It is lor Great Britain now to show by what law she has gained rights in that sea after tho transfer <jf__itft—•SOY-' creignly to -•- the- 'United States. During all the time between tho treaty of 1825, and the cession of Alaska to the United States in 1867, Great Britain never affirmed the right of her subjects to capture . fur seals in Behring sea; and as a matter of fact, her subjects did not during that long period attempt to catch seals in Behring sea. I nm justified, therefore, in repeuting the questions which 1 addressed to her majesty's government on tho 22nd of January, and which still remain unanswered, viz: When did the ships of Canada derive the right to do in 188G, what they had refrained from doing for nearly ninety years? upon what grounds did her majesty's government defend in the year 1886, the course of her conduct in Behring Sea, which had been carefully avoided ever since the discovery of that sea? By what reasoning did her majesty's government conclude that an act may be committed with impunity against the rights of the United States which never had been attempted against the same rights when held by the Russian empire. The. thirtieth, and last letter ot the correspondence which would, if printed entire, fill over twenty newspaper colums was add.essed by Mr. Blaino to Sir Julian Paucefote from Bur Harbor, lastlSatnrday. In it the secretary says: "I am instructed by the president to say that tho United States is willing to consider all the proceedings of April 16,1888, as can- colled, so far as American rights may be concerned. This government will ask Great Britain to adhere only to the agreement made between Lord Salisbury and Mr. Phelps on the 25th of February, 1888. That wus un agreement inude directly between the two governments and did not include tho rights of Russia. Asking Lord Salisbury to adhere to tho agreement of February 25, we leave the agreement of April 16 to be maintained, if maintained at all, by Russia, for whose CUUSP and for whose advantage it was particularly designed." Secretary Blaine also refers to Lord Salisbury's statement that political events in the United States had caused an interruptions, and not a Canadian objection, and closes the voluminous correspondence an'follows: "I am justified in assuming that Lord Salisbury cannot recur to a remark of Mr. Phelps us one of the reasons for, breaking off tho negotiations, because the negotiation was in actual progress for more than four months after the rennirk was made und Mr. Phelps himself took a largo part in it. Upon this recital of facts 1 am unu ble to recall or in any way to qualify Ihe statement which I made in my note of June 4th to tho effect Lord Salisbury abruptly closed negotiation, because tho Canadian government objected mid that ho assigned no other reason whatever." Lord Salisbury expresses this belief that even if the view 1 have taken of theso transactions bo accurate, they would not boar out the argument which 1 found upon them. The argument to which Lord Salisbury refers,, is, 1 'presume, a remonstrance which ] made by direction of the president, against the change of policy by her majesty s government without notice, and nguinst tho wishes of the United Stntcs, Tho interposition of tho wibhes of the British province against the conclusion of the convention between the two nations which according to Mr. Phelps, "had been virtually agreed upon except us to tho dotuils" was, in tho president's belief a grave injustice to the government of tho United States.
