The Fishery Qnentlon.
The praaident'a polite reply to
the nicniorialists who urged hiui to
a prompt exercise of the retaliatory
powen with which he ta now en
tlowetl will' bo most highly appreciated by those who ara best aware
of the moderate tone used by the
Canadian press in discussion of the
fishery question. Oonaervn'tive or
Liberal, the leading newspapers of
the Dominion approach the subjeot
with an evident desire for friendly
adjustment. . The wording of tbe
convention whose terms are alleged
by the Canadians to have been violated by United States fishermen il:
"The united States hereby renounce
foravor any liberty heretofore enjoyed or claimed by the inhabitants
thereof to take, dry, or cure fiah on
or within three marine miles of nny
of the coasts, bays, creeks, or harbors of hia Britannic Majesty's dominions in North America not included within the above-mentioned
limits; provided, however, tint the
American fishermen shall be admitted to enter such bays or harbors
for the purpose of shelter and
of repairing damages therein, of
purchasing wood, and of obtaining
water, and for no other purpose
whatever. But they shall be under
such restrictions at may be necessary
to prevent their taking, drying, or
curing fiah therein, or in any manner whatever abusing the privileges
hereby reserved to them." The
treaty of 1783 was more liberal,
giving to United Statei fishermen
the right to dry fish on certain
coasts of North Britain, and of
course including the right to purchase bait at porta in the jurisdiction of what is now the Dominion
of Canada, and also to fish in what
are now clearly recognised as Britiih or Canadian waters; in foot, it
left the United States in pouenion
of exactly the same fishing rights
which they had enjoyed as thirteen
American colonies of England. It
will be observed-that by the treaty
of 1818 this country does three
things: renounces the right to fish
within three miles or Kngliih or
Canadian coasts; asserts the right
tbe three-mile limit for certain purposes; agrees to submit to
certain restrictions for the better enforcement of the provisions of the
treaty. As to the third article of
agreement them is no misunderstanding at present between the United
States and the foreign powers at
interest. As to the fint there is
serious difference of opinion, for
while the United Statei professes
willingness to prevent its subjects
from fishing "within three marine
miles of any of the toasts, bays,
creeks, or harbors" of her Britannic
Majesty's dominions, it contends
that the measurement of such miles
shall be from, and follow the sinuosities of the coast line. The other
aide contends that the measurement
ahall be from the utmost projecting
capes or headlands of her majesty's
dominions. Suoh measurement would
prohibit United States fishermen
from the use of waters which are 20
miles or more from much of the
coast line, and would virtually interfere with thi fight of open sea
Hiding. On the second article there
ii also disagreement, and it is to
alleged breaches of this article that
the present disturbed relations ara
due. The interpretation placed by
our people upon the inhibition of
United States fishing veiiels from
Britiih "bays and harbors for the
purpose of shelter and repairing
damages therein, and for the pur
pose of purchasing wood and obtaining water, and for no other purpose
whatever," is that it il intended to
enable the British to exolude United
Statei vessels from fishing qr preparing to fish within the three mile
limit The Canadians insist that it
•hsll be construed literally, aud that
shelter from storms, repairing injuries tuflered tt sen, purchasing
wood, and obtaining water are the
only justifications for Amerioan veiled entering the three-mile limit.
The strict conitruotion theory would
seem untenable, for a conveyance of
a right to do anything is also a conveyance of a right to obtain'the
moons of doing it; thus, though it
is not said that damaged United
States vesieja shall have a right to
purchase sails and span and nails,
yet the right is conveyed under the
general one of "repairing damages,"
for without sails and span and nails
damages oould not be repaired. In
Ilk* manner the right "to purchase
wood" implies the right to purchase
coal, for wood is used in the treaty
as. synonymous with fuel. And so
the right to fish implies the right to
obtain bait to fish with. A strict
construction of the letter of the
convention would prevent a United
States akipper from purchasing bread
or meat for the hunger-stricken crew
which had pit into a Canadian port
under the treaty provisions of "re
pairing damages;" but' reason and
humanity would revolt from io forced
uniuterpret»tion.--/«^r-0-eaii.

rAKNIU ACCl'SID.
London, Apr. 18,—In tht commons
to-night Hartington referred to Par
nell'i letter: Parnell interrupting: "I
■toted it wu falae, I uyao atill."
(Oheen.) Lord Hartington, "A blank
denial in the face of upposing proof is
worth nothing. Tho statement, mode
in the Times havo been widely circulated and nover boen ehown to be wrong
and the letter printed in the morning
NUMBER 91
Times justified every syllable uttered
in associating the Irish party with till
Fenian society.  .Ford, Egan, Bn't*
nan and Sullivan were Fenian leaden
and the statement of the Titiws proved
condvsively that constant oommuniea-
tions were paned between Parnell and
theee penons."   Parnell: "Will the
noble lord giro reasons for supposing
these gontlemon to bo load—ra of tbe   '
Fenians iu America! I .do not know
them as such."   HartiiiBtnn: "My belief is based   upon the' knowledge
acquired when I wu laat in office.
(Oheen).   There is alao the fact that
tlie same statement haa repeatedly    i
been made. in the papen without cun-,
tnuliotiun.    Can   Parnell deny the
knowledge that Alex. Bullivan has
been leador of the Clan NaOael 1 The
oouutty will net fail to attach diie!•'•'-
weight to the fact that Irish members
shirked the opportunity for disproving
those charges under oath.   It hu not
been denied tbat Parnell end Sexton „
have been memben of the League with
-Began, Brennan, Boynton, and Sheri-  '
dan.   Sexton hu denied that "Sgaii
and Sheridan were onthe executive"''''
committee,  but not that they were
among the ohief  organ ims of the
league."    Sexton:  "They were nv --
thing   of   the kind." j, Hartington:. ,fl
"They were prominent memben then.   ...
According to the assertion of the Times J,
some of (hew men advocated usetsi*
nation' and' othen were implicated in
a conspiracy nf   murder.''    Dillon:
'Two of theae gentlemen acted undee - ')
me.   I wu chief organiser fi*,tlttM»l
land league.   When did they moke    :
•poechei advocating murder)   Hartington: "In '80 and '81."   Continuing, Hartington uid he would not
make himself responsible for tht tbite-
menta in tho Timet, bat would quote
them.   It wu open to the Parnellite.
to disprove them if they thought it
pouible to do so,    (Cheeio.)   The     -
land league aud the national league received large sums collected in America
thruugh the agency of the Irish Wmid,
a paper which; openly advocated assassination.   It had been atated by T. P. i
O'Connor in a communication with
Ford that when the American land
league wu founded, having tor ita
promotere Egan, Brennan, Sheridan,
Boynton, and Sullivan, that a telegram from Parnell to the convention
acknowledged it the moat repreunta-
tive meeting ever assembled to expreu
Irish   opinion."    T.  P.  O'Connor:
"Why do you not mention that I wot
present nt the Chicago convention of
'83, aitting between O'Donovan Room
and Ford, and suggested that by my
ailence I approved of the n*w campaign .
of murder and arson in England I"
Hartington: "He bod not noticed that    ,,
in the Time, but uiociated O'Connor
iu '83 in communication with Tim."
"That wad a Be," shouted O'Connor.
Hartington: "Theae   oh—gee wer*-'
criminal libels if untrue, .xpotiug the
paper to criminal pruaaoutiun if uw-   •
tured upon."   Gladstone, upon ruing,
wu loudly cheered.   He aaid if the
bill passed the political subscriptions
from America, which some of the
apeaken condemned, wu likely to increue, not Irish subscriptions eltme,
but those humane, contribatio-s whith
were reflecting such splendid light,
upon America.. He and hi. supporters
had been eharged with inconsistency,
proposing oo.reion in former timet,
opposing it now.   He might admit a
feeling of shame over the failure of
coercion, but he did not refute tke
leasom experienced. ' {(Oheen.)   He
believed, aud ao seemingly did Con-.
lervativei, that though amnion in '82
reduced the amount of crimt it madt
tlie Irish more determined than evtr
tu combine.   Finding no permanent
result from that coune the Liherali '
looked to some other.   The mandate
givon nt the lut election wu a government for Ireland without coercion.
When the Liberal, passed the coetoon
hiD. they paned remedial  measures
also. Were tho government's remedial
propoub a reality or an imposture I
(Cheers.)   He would withdrew that
expression    and   any. on    illusion.
(LaUghter.) The govemment intend to
atandor fall by their relief bill.   Before they went to division he hoped
and expeoted they would give "a dear,
unmistakable and unequivocal anawer
to that qeation. Gladatone complained    '
that the government had withheld
from parliament infoimation regarding
the state uf crime in Ireland of which
thero had beon no saffici.nt increue
to justify tht; bill.* Tht only increue
wii in the menacing letter-   (A voice,
Yes.) ' Theu then have been hundreds
of outrage..   (Laughter.)   But then
outrage, wen   alio perpetrated by
what wu known as the loyal, la*?-   *>
abiding party of Ireland.   (Parnellite
oheen.)   They proceeded  from, the
moat pious penons in tlie kingdom,
mostly nt the time of disestablishment
of the Irish church." (Laughter.)'Pro-
ediug to deal with the bill Gladstone
contended tint "the olaueu embody*   I
ing 'White Bay act ought to be tH
out in tin fulleit tonus.   Tha bill in
to suppress any combination to secure
the reduction nf rent.   In liis view the
bill wiib poison. He would not preunt
it-to the lips of Ireland,   tt muit be
•■resented  by another liond, and It
wuuld be an honor and source of hap*
piiioss to him to be petlnitted to have '
the siniilleet share in (lashing it to tke
ground."   Gladstone returned hia Mat
smid loud cheen,   "In concluiion,"
Balfour uid, "speaking from experience, he should say, what failed in the
put SO yean itt Ireland wu not oo-
onion, but remedial legialation, and,
muoh aa he desired equal treatment'
for England and: .Ireland, ht ftit it
uieleu to attempt to build a system of
equality on the shifting sands of Iriih
lawleuneie."   (Cheen.)   Parnell followed,   "He craved to nfer to the
vilo, barefaced forgtry printed in tht
Tiims, obviously for no other patpoa.
than to Influence the division.   He
thought he wu entitled to have an opportunity to expose thii dellhente at-'
tempt to blaoken hii character in time

Looking to Honduras.
In a late issue the Seattle Pott
takea a very covetous look at Central  America  and  itt prospective
trade, and the tone of our cotcupo*
rary's remarks leads one to scent
annexation not very far off.   The
country of Honduras, it says, although smull, haa magnificent re-
soiiwei" in gold, silver, "iron, zinc,
cinnabar, antimony and platinum,
while  opals, amethysts, asbestos,
chalk, limestone and coal abound
thore in any quantity.   Honduras
mahogonay   is   oelebrated   all tho
world over,.but until now Great
Britain has enjoyed the almost exclusive monopoly of the trade in it.
The country, as a whole, iB mountainous, but the valleys produce
cotton, sugar, coffee, tobacco, indigo,
unite, yams, and a variety of other
products. ' The aboriginal inhabitant* are amiable and inoffensive,
their character being shaped by the
. easy conditions of existence whioh
is a' feature of their soft and voluptuous climate.    All tropical fruits,
including bananas, pineapples, oranges and limes, grow here ih the
greatest profusion, and the sugar
cane can' be cultivated to rival the
plantations of the Mauritius.   Tropical ailments like yellow fever and
cholera  are unknown, and with
mountains on either hand, the place
would be a happy valley but for the
prevalence of mosquitoes and sand
flies, -   Although  Traxillo is less
than  a thousand miles from Kew
Orleans, it is with Great Britain
that most of; tho trade is done, and
hence the cost of mast of the staples
of life.   Flour is quoted at '812 a
barrel  and  butter at |1 a pound!
Though Honduras produces tne finest timber jn the world, strange to
aay there is not a mill to work it,
the valuable mahogany and lignum
vibe logs being shipped to England
in the rough. : A single stick of tbe
former is often worth 82,000, and
the whole of the timber of tho re*
publia is appraised at 8300,0000,000.
The Port thinks some enterprising
Yankees sbould be looking after so
rich and   inviting a  oountry as
this.

It is nid that the commissioners
appointed nnder authority of the
interstate commerce .bill have decided to suspend at once the clause
relating to the short and long haul
until the- effect of the olause oan be
thoroughly considered. This action
has doubtless bten taken in consequence of representations made by
those whose opinions ore valuable,
to the effect that the enforcement
of the clause will be most injurious
both to the transcontinental rail-
wayt and to mercantile interests oh
this coast. It was supposed that
the effeot of the bill would be to
bring short haul rates, very much
down, and somewhere near the rates
oharged for long haul- But in*
stead oi i this the railways have
simply increased their through rate
enormously tnd practically killed
all through trade. The people
of Puget Sound, and even San Francisco, consoled themselves fora while
with the reflection that they were
near enough to the Canadian Paoific
Railway to prevent them from suffering seriously' by the interstate
bill. But this consolation did not
last. The 0. P. B. has made haste
to advance its rates in sympathy
with the forced advance on other
transcontinental roads, and importers everywhere on the coast have
been forced to cancel eastern orders
and make different arrangements.
We have already expressed the
opinion that the O. P. E, people
made a mistake in putting through
rates so high. No one eould expect
the tariff to remain unchanged in
face of the enforcement of the interstate commerce bill, but no one
expected, on the other hand, to tee
freights jump up three and four
hundred per eent. without the least
warning. From all sides we hear
the action of the company denounced; and if the operation pf.
the interstate bill has been suspen
dtd in at far as it relates to through
freighto, and the American lines re*
tume their former tariffs, a great
deal of the traffic that might hsve
fallen to the O. P. R. will go to its
rivals. A drop in the through tariff
on Amerioan roadi fill have to be
followed by a (jorresponding drop on
the O. P. R., but it will be a long
time before our road will recover
the place it held a month ago in the
minds of importers on this coast.

VAGARIES OF THE INSANE.
Specimens of Literary Products bf Oil.
.   MHd Minds.
In a lecturo at Indianapolie by Dr.
Fletcher, tho Superintendent of tlie
State Lunatic Asylum, many carious
and interesting laots an brought out
in regard to the vagaries of the insane.
Most. of tliem, he aaid, were itching
to mite, and if furnished with writing
materials thev would apend moat ol
tlieir time in thia occupation. Some of
their productions ahow considerable
literary ability, bat ihe majority of
them are thc most senseless kind of
Ihe lecturer hod a portfolio of these
writings, many of which wore in vene,
Imt tho majority in prose, which he
read to the great amuioment of hia
audience.
The following wu written by a young
lady who wna affected with hopeleM
melancholia, aa the character of the
poem indicates:
There Is something whioh I dread—
,    It is a dark and dreadful thing;
It stoats along with withering tread,
And swoops on wild destruction's wing.
That thought comes o'er molhtho hour
Of grief, of sickness, or of sadness;
T»not tho dread of death—'tis more-
It is tbo dread of madness.
Oh I may those throbbing pulses pause,
Forgetful of their feverish course; '
May tills hot brain, wbloh burning glows,
with all a fiery whirlpool's force,
Bo cold, and motionless, and atill,
A tenant of Its lonely bed.
The author of the following waa evidently in a atate of extreme mental disorder, for it Ib enough to make one'*.
head swim even to read it:
Oh, that my brain would bleat like but*
teredpeaa,
And oft, by frequent bleating, catch
the Itch;
Grow blaek and mangy as the Irish seas,
To gender whirlwinds for aome northern witch.
I grant that drunken rainbows, lulled to
sleep,
Snort like Welch rabblte in afalr maid's
eyes;
Ooeause ho laughed to aee • pudding
creep,
For creeping puddings, only, please
the wise.
Not that a hard-rood herring daro presume
To swing a titho-plg in a cat-skin
purse;
'Cause of the great hall-stones that fell
at Bome,
By lessening the tall might make lt
worse.
Ihe reason's plain, for Charon's western
barge,
Bunning a tilt 'gainst the subjective
mood,
Beckoning to Beasley wood and gave the
charge
To fatten padlocks on antartlo food.
The next is aaid to havo been written
by a man who knew that he was insane,
ind did not hesitate to acknowledge Ua
reaknoss:
A miracle my friends, come view 1  .
A man (admit his own words true!   '
Who iiros without a soul:
Ko liver, lungs, nor heart has he;
Yet soiuotlmcs can aa cheerful bit/   ■■
As lt he had the whole.
His head (take his own words along),
Now hard as iron, yet ere long
Is soft as any jolly;
All burnt his sinews and his lungs;
Of his complaints not fifty tongues
Oould find enough to tell ye.
Yet he who paints his likeness here
Haa lust as much himself to fear-
He's wrong from top to toe;
Ah I friends, pray help us lt you can,
And make us each again a man,
That we from hence may go.      i

For I should get, I'm enre, much better . treatment trom bim than I

In making the remark I have quoted,
however, she was really in earnest,
and after, ate had gone home I sat

COMMONS NOTES.

By Associated Press; -
COMMONS KO-CB8.
London, April 18.—Col. King Harmon, the now parliamentary under
secretary, for the fint time since hii
appointment answered interrogatories
respecting Irish affain. Upon rising
he wu greeted with cheen by government supporters, groana and derisive
ories by Parnellites. He itated in response to a question that since March
lat only two tenants wen evicted
from the Marquia of Lansdowne. estates. These two, however, involved
the eviction of 16 sub-tenants. Sexton uked whether the government
could conaent to resoind the suspension of Healy. W. H. Smith, lint
lord of the treasury, replied for the
government that the duty they had to
discharge Friday night waa most diaa-
greablce. The government were
sorry they were forced to uk, Healey
to bo pan-fid for tranagmsion of the
orders of the house; It would be utterly out of question, however, when
no apology had been given for this
broach. No motion to that effect
could be entertained without the general concurrence of the house Sox-
ton inquired if it wort competent for
him to move the rescinding of Healy'i
■uipeuslon. Speaker Peel replied
that M motion' would be competent
unleu it appesred on the paper of the
house. Sexton said that in the absence of Healy he liu authorised to
say for Healy that If Mr. Sandenon
withdrew the offensive charges to
which Healy'. language-was in reply
Healy would withdraw the expressions
deemed by thc home offensive. Jieob
Bright, liberal, snd brother of John
Bright, uked why it was when two
memben of the huuie committed the
aame offense oue waa suspended while
the other wu not. The speaker laid
that under ordinary circumstances he
would decline to answer that question
or any question, implying hia dcoit-iim
wu not impartial, out in ths present
circumstances be wnuld explain. In
the second instance in which a breach
uf the rulea nf the house had been
committed [that of Sexton] an npology,
followed the withdrawal of ihe expression causing the breach Sexton
moved that Healy he heard at the.W
of the house. - The speaker declared it
could nol be done. Sexton uked
Major Sandenon to withdraw his assertions regarding Healy which exu-
perated him into making the re.pi.use
for which he wu suspended. Ssnder-
son remaining silent, Gladstone put |«
him a direct question whether he was
prepared to render the house any u
aiatance by the withdrawal of his offensive expressions. The conservatives cried, " No, no. Don't, don't,
don't." Sandenon nid he never alluded to Healy directly or indirectly,
beciuie he felt aa regard! Healy he
wu unable to aubslantiate the charges
io as to bring conviction to tbe minda
of the memben of tbt house. TM-I
matter then dropped.

more eagerly sought aftor thnn the chaste
