SATURDAY, MAY, 20, 1893.
Tln�� I'm In Arbitration,
Paris, May 11    Hon. ,1ns. B. Euslis
American   Ambassador,   was  present
to-day  at the session  of   the Piecing
Sea tribunal of arbitration.    Sir Chas.
Russell  resumed the argument which
was largely devote 1 to technical features of the controversy.     S.r Uhurlus
argued  that  it  was  impossible there
could he property  rights iu soils iu
Bering Sea, and  s tpported his contention w.th quotations from American
jurists and  in  particuhir from Prof,
Wolseley's  writings on  International
Law.     Sir Charles dwolt o.i the far-
reaching  ullccts   upon   International
rights that would ensue from conferring tho power claimed by American
counsel in behalf of tho United States
to   seize   foroiuu   vessels  iu  time   of
pence.   Sir Charles claimed that Great
Britain represents I iu this controversy
the rights  of   nations.   S.r  Charh s
Russell,   iu    commenting   upon   the
seizures of Canadian vessels by Americans for seal catching iu Bering Sja
insisted   that the seizures   had been
made  ou the high seas without previous diplomatic expostulation.     Mr.
Bayard, when Secretary oi State, had
nevor tried to justify tho seizures on
the grouiul that the Unite I States hud
property iu the seals.     Here followed
a   sharp   exchange of  contradictions
between  Senator   Morgan,  American
arbitrator, Sir Charles Russell and E.
J. Phelps.      Sir  Charles   Russell got
excited and angry  and declared that
the interruptions  were uncalled  for.
Sir  Charles  thou  proceeded to review
the diplomatic correspondence between
Great Britain and the United States uu
the subject of   Bering Sja.      He read
extracts from a communication from
Mr.  Blaine under date of Jan. 22nd.
181)0, arguing  that  unless the nation
should agree tii.it pelagic scahng was
contra bonus  n.ii es seizures were not
justifiable,     R tssell continued calling
attention  to the inconsistency of the
American claim to the ricjit of the
protection of  seals   wherever found iu
view of the fact that no seizor's had
bee a   attempted   outside   Bering Sea.
He defended the British commissioners
against partiality iu justifying pelagic
sealing  inasmuch as many Americans
are Interested. He showed that American  legislation docs not prohibit sealing  outside of   Bering  sen, as  stated
nnd that thu claim of property iu free
swimming  animals iu the  ocean  is
unprecedented,   Hj spokoof tho extravagant claims in past times of Britain
and S,,aiu to dominion over vast areas J
as not involving property rights.    Ho
showed that  the protection asked for
necessarily   involved    the  dangerous
elements of search, seizure and conlis-
cation,   never   admitted   by   friendly
powers.      No eminent  American publicist   supported   the    United  States

Honors for tlio Canadians.
Toronto, May 11.���The following
special cable from Loudon appears in
this morning's Globe : At the opening cf the Imperial Institute to-day by
the Queen u detachment of Canadian
Mounted Horse formed part of the
Queen's escort from Buckingham Palace to Kensington. Canadians with
other Colonists were given the place of
honor iu the escort. Coming immediately before the royal carriage they
were warmly cheered by the crowd iu
the Institute. The scone was very
brilliant, thu proceedings being the
most important state function in Loudon since the opening of the Colonial
Exhibition. S r Charles Tapper, as
the representative of Canada ou tho
Executive Council of the Institute,
was a member of the procession to
conduct the Q icon front tlio etii ranee
to th.' ilias in the great hall. The Canadian Poi'.n i.ieut Exhibit in the
b.iilJiu,' is wh illy incomplete. Iu ull
other sections, however, a similar
state of things prevails
Hon. Edward U'uke, who hopes to
follo.v the Hjui! Rule discussion in
committee very closely, spoke 10 minutes last night 'ou the Unionist
amendment to the first clause, arguing
that every supporter of the bill freely
admitted the proposition that the
Irish Legislature was to bo a subordinate Legislature.
this case is not tenable.
At the Public Works department it
is slated that there is no warrant for
the senior naval officer at Esquiniault
ordering tho Romulus to vacate the
dock before tho loth iust. The despatch from the Colonial office, received
here, is very delini.o upon the point,
tho Admiralty having given permission for the vessel to remain I'll dock.
Mr. Coste, chief engineer, is expected
to be iii Victoria next Monday, and
will give the matter immediate attention. Hon. Mr. Ouituet has again
postponed his trip to the Coast, consequently Mr. Coste will travel alone.
Dr. D.incan, medical health officer
of Victoria, has been appointed quarantine officer, for the s ieoial purpose
of inspecting vessels which arrive at
Victoria from Pttget Sound ports. Dr.
Duncan is authorized to issue clean
bills of health in all cases in which
it can bo safely done ; but in the event
of quarantine on account of disease
being discovered on any vessel, it will
be necessary to send them to the station at William's Head for disinfection.
Dr. Mncnatightoii-Joues has been
appointed superintendent of tho British
Columbia quarantine.
Mr. Parent, engineer of the Lachine
canal, and Mr. Kennedy, superintendent, will be suspended, pending uu
investigation into certain matters in
connection with the erection of a new
bridgo over the Lachine canal. These
officers have expended some $20,100.
without the authority of the department. A commissioner has been
appointed to investigate the matter
and report to the Government without
express from Syracuse to Buffalo yesterday. East of Syracuse the train
had lost 25 minutes on account of
foaming boiler, and it loft Syracuse 25
minutes late. Leaving Rochester at
4,15 or 28 minutes late, Engineer
Hogan set out to make up part of this
time between Rochester and Buffalo;
and while not intending to make an
effort for special time, he broke all
known records in covering that section
19 miles, in (17 minutes, without making allowance for stop at Batavla.
Between Looucrvillo and Grimesville
there is a level stretch of truck for live
miles. Over this tho train sped iu
3J minutes, or at the rate of a niilo in
42 seconds. Between Gremsvllle and
the forks one milo was covered in 35
seconds, or at the rate of 100 miles per
hour, News of the trip reached
Buffalo before the train, and u big
crowd guthtro.l to see it come ill,
cial policy and opposition to the
Imperials prograinmo which demands
a reversion to Bismarckian commercial principles. Prince Bismarck in
addressing a deputation of Lubeck
iirtizans, said they ought to be able to
run a labor candidate for the Reichstag. If they were unsuccessful in
this, he added, their failure would be
due to the unfavorable nature of the
present election law.
The Radical newspapers freely criticize the Emperor's speech, The Vissi-
sicho Zeitung questions the accuracy
of tho published report of the speech
and contends that tho Emperor has no
power to dissolve the Reichstag without the consent of the Bundesrath.

the corpses of patients in the slaughter

dumping tho brains of dissected patients down vaults and beating troublesome patients to death are some of the
charges,sttpported by sworn testimony
made against the management of the
state insane asylum at Independence,
containing over 1,000 patients. These
charges are to be investigated at once
by tho stato's visiting committee, by
the order of Governor Boies. Attendants are accused of having beaten
patients so badly that they and then
reported to the authorities that the
fatal wounds were self inflicted. The
patients have been fed on the meat of
lumpy jawed cattle and other diseused
animals. Their food has been insufficient. For want of proper clothing
they have been frozen while working
outside during the winter. Dr. Hill,
the suserintetident, is charged with
having worked them on his private

Birmingham, May 13. -Frank Elmore, or Gordo, Pickens county, a
farmer, astonished his neighbors recently by mentioning 825,000 in cash
as one of the items on his tax list.
He has just consented to explain how
he got the money. He says that five
years ago the spirit of an old settler
appeared to him at night mid told him
he would iitid a stick under bis house,
and beneath the stick a buried treasure.
He was told he must, not use it for five
years on pain of death, and must then
exchange it for other money, He
must also place a tombstone on a long
unmarked grave near the house. He
followed the directions and found an
iron pot with $20,000 of silver and
$5,000 in gold in it. He has kept it
sacred for five years, and only recently
begun to exchange the coin. Elmore
is paying taxes ou the $25,000 as
evidence of the truth of his story.

Mine Water and Copper,
We constantly hear from prospectors
that the water iu certain looalitlos
contains a something which makes il
unfit to dl'lllk. As thu districts iu
question are known to contain vast
quantities of copper we would advise
the dipping the blade of their knives
into the solution (probably sulphate of
copper) if it contains this metal it
will be deposited on the blade iu a
metallic form and should be collected
on a largo scale by making a series of
troughs, passing the water front one
into another over iron, when the sulphate will give up its copper and the
miner could sell the extracted cement
copper as it would be called, at great
Tlio World's I'.i11- Mineral Exhibit.

The following appeared recently in

A 'I foot !I4J per cent arsenic ledge
lias ben unearthed somewhere in the
Kootenay country. The quartz resembles somewhat that of nickel, and will
consume in lire.
The !)4J per cent would represent
"crude arsenic" about '2 grains of
which if inhaled would kill any man.
The quartz and nickel comparison is
really too good, arsenic of such a percentage being white and nearly us soft
us soap.    Rooming again.

Race Track, (Iravcseiid, L.I., May 15
All is bustle and activity at tho
course hero this morning. Club officials ami an army of employees aro
being busily engaged making ready to
receive the vast crowd expected this
afternoon to witness the Brooklyn
Handicap. The weather, always uncertain at this time of the year iu this
vicinity, is almost perfect. The track
white not absolutely fast is in good
condition and good time may be ex.
peeled in the big race. The track this
morning was fairly alive with horses,
trainers taking advantage of tho
beautiful weather to work their charges.
Several horses entered in the Brooklyn
Handicap wore out, but beyond a gentle
canter nothing was done with them.
From '.\\o best sources obtainable this
morning, it is probable that. 14 or 15
horses entered iu the Handicap will go
to the post. They aro: Lamplighter,
with 125 lbs., who will be ridden by
Willie Sims; Banquet. 182 lbs., Garrison up; Racoliind 116 lbs., John

Alonzo from present indications will
be absent. Of the starters, Lamplighter will certainly bo made a favor-
lie by the publio, although ho has not
been iu an actual nice this season. He
received careful preparation at tho
hands of trainer Higgins at Jobstowm
N.J., and is said to be thoroughly fit.
His first pullic trial un Saturday, a
mile and thrce-alglits in 2:88, was not
entirely satisfactory to his trainer and
ho was given another trial at a mile 20
minutes later. He negotiated the distance in 1:45 and the manner ir which
be ran was highly pleasing to his
stable, Tho other horses all have
shown fast trials,ainong the best being
Judge Morrow and Loonawell, The
field Ibis year is the best collectively
that ever contested for the rich stake
and a highly exciting struggle may be
looked for. At 11 o'clock this morning
the spectators had already begun to
arrive at the track. By that time
several hundred persons were present,
and trains were arriving half hourly
all comfortably filled. The present indications are that at least 80,000
persons will be in attendance when the
bell rings for the great race at 4 o'clock
