WASHINGTON, Feb. 23.—The meeting- of the Behring Sea Arbitration Commission in Paris to-morrow promises to be simply informal in its nature, as the tribunal has only preliminary work to attend to, such as the organization of the Court of Arbitration, the acceptance and filing of credentials. American interests will be looked after by Judge Harlan, Messrs. J. T. Williams, E. J. Phelps and Senator Morgan. Sir Charles Tupper will be the leading representative for Canada and Sir Baden Powell, the leading English representative. .By the terms of treaty the case of each government was delivered September last, and the counter cases ou each side slurald have been delivered Sept. 1, but taking advantge of a provision of the.treaty to that effect, the British government asked for an ex ten- j Liberal, 4,709. sion of time of sixty days, which postponed the time for the delivery o 1 '. the counter cases to Feb. 3 and the meeting of the tribunal of arbitration until to-day. Secretary Foster retired to-day from the Cabinet to assume the management of the case of the United States. He will leave to-morrow afternoon for New York, whence he will sail Saturday on the Xcw American steamship, New York, for Southampton, proceeding thence to Paris. He will be accompanied from New York by Senator Morgan, one of the arbitrators; Hubbard T. Smith and Francois S. Jones, attaches; Mrs. J. W. Foster, Miss Cockrell, daughter of Senator Cockrell; Miss Halforcl, daughter of Private Secretary lialford; and Miss Williams, daughter of Geu. Williams. Judge of ilie American counsel, will also sail f/om Now York Saturday on the Nor- inandie. It is said to be a carefully suppressed state secret, nol/ hinted at .until now, that the whole proceedings of arbitration came very near being broken off by the United States on account of n failure to present the British (or Canadian) counter cases contemporaneously with the counter case which the. Uijited States itself submitted in good faith promptly on gtime. It is said that for some days cable messages were exchanged between the two governments, which, when called for, as they probably will be, by a Senate resolu- liiivuges of Clioloru. ST.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 23. — Secretary Charles Foster has received word from New York that in all probability there will bo little or no gold called from the Treasury for shipment this week. It gratifies him greatly. I£ She end of the week shows tlie, report to be true it will enable him to enter upon the final week of the administration with about five ton.

The cause of complaint on the part of the United Spates, it is said, consists in the fact that, while ostensibly both parties exchanged their counter cases in' Washington ou the same day, before the limit of the time expired,when the Canadian counter case came to be examined it was found to be only a partial presentment, the Canadian authorities reserving the right to iile additional matter up to Dec. 1, which is the extreme limit allowed by the treaty. The United States was thus placed in the- position of having disclosed its whole counter case to its adversary, while Canada had the opportunity of rebutting the position of the United States in its supplementary filing. This was regarded as in derogation of the treaty, which provided for the simultaneous interchange of the counter cases, and as almost a breach of international good faith. The unpleasantness resulting from this incident seems to have been met by each side taking the sixty days' extension allowed. To effect this arrangement, however, must have required a very broad and generous interpretation of the treaty, since it seems certain, as far as outsiders can judge, that Great Britain's request for an extension was not made within thirty days after the filing of the original case on Sept. 1, as required by article 4.

Landmarks which have occupied valuable ground in East Washington are gradually giving way to modern brick dwellings, says the Washington Post. Recently a,:. Kaai Washington real estate speculator purchased a souaro of ground, in the center of which was situated a comfortable six room frame dwelling. He wanted to improve the property, but the house was in the way. He decided to sell it as it stood, and started out to hunt up a purchaser. He finally struck an "old-time, bofore-the-war" darky, who always said "massa," and whose name was Ephraim Jones. Ephraim had some time before purchased a lot near the jail, and he wanted a house. He was offered a bargain in this house if he would move it, and after figuring the cost of moving tho total was found to be only $350. "Well, massa. Ise got 'bout dat much money," said Ephraim, "but Iso got to 'suit the ole 'oman fust." He was given an option of twenty-four hours to 'suit do ole 'oman. At the end of that time he showed up at the real estate man's office smiling. "Massa," said he, "Iso 'suited do ole 'oman and do ole 'oman's willing. We takes de house." After, getting his receipt for the money and affixing "his mark'' to an agreement to remove the structure within a certain time, Ephraim started out and employed a house mover, a white man, who agreed to move the house to Ephraim's lot. After tho house was clear of the ground and in tho street, Ephraim discovered for the first time that there was a cellar under the house. In dead earnestness that was amusing, ho said to the mover: - "Massa, ain't youse gwine ty move dat cellar, too?" The mover saw tho joke and he referred Ephraim totho real estate man from whom he made the purchase. Ephraim lost no time in calling on the real estate man. "Look hyar, massa, didn't I buy dat house?" "You did,.sir." ••Well, den, why ain't I titled to dat cellar? Dat odor, man- won't move it, loss you say so." The real estate man spent several hours trying to impress upon Ephraim that tho cellar was nothing but a hole in tho ground, but he couldn't see it that way, and went off convinced that he had ^jeen swindled in his bargain. "I have often heard of selling post holes and wells," remarked tho real estate speculator, "but this is the- first time I was ever accused of selling a cellar." A Wealthy Corporation. He had been standing on the corner for 88 minutes waiting for a car. During that time it had ' rained steadily aud half a dozen cars had passed him—going, the wrong direction. For the last 20 minutes he had been saying things that lie never saw- in his prayer book and stamped his- feet as if annoyed. Finally a policeman sauntered past. • "Say, Mr. Officer," observed the* impatient citizen in a sarcastic tone, "you must have a pretty wealthy car- company here." "Think so?" was the guarded rejoinder. "Yes, I notice thay don't use the- same car twice." "How's that?" inquired the officer, becoming interested. "Well, I've been waiting here about an hour, and about 80 cars have gone down, but not a blamed one has come back." "Loop line; comes back on next street!" and the patrolman sauntered on through the falling rain. liioxpeiiKivu Mutfi. For a series of pretty mats fine white shirting linen is selected, the design being transferred by using transfer paper. This is worked solidly in smooth satin stitch with two threads of white floselle.

Those designs avo suitable also for silk or velvet, to use under vases or bric-a- brac. Fine twisted silk is used for tho embroidery, with gold thread for stems; or, if a more elegant effect is desired, bullion an£ gold thread may be used with good effect.
