Uncle Sam  has Ween for some time anxious that  Canada should impost* stricter measures for the preservation of fisheries  in Mississ-quoi Bay, al lhe northern  end of ,Lal>e, Chaniplnin. Canada answered .that she was -'ready to con-  si-derfishcries disputes whcrcier they  occurre<I in coniiginms waters, but it  would be better to deal with these  altogether on a basis of mutual compromise. For her part she was not  going to l.e drawn into a discussion  L-nly on these cases in whi.h the  shoe .'-pinched Uncle Sam. Thc American Government has now accepted  this proposal, and the Dominion accordingly as' ed what points arc desired to -be taken up. It is safe to  assume that Uncla Sam is not goin������  to introduce into ihe negotiations i  the subject of Atlantic fisheries, and  the expectation is th.it negotiations  will be confined accoidiiigly to such  disputes as hate arisui at Passama-  quody Bay, St.. John -RI\er, St.  Croix River, Lale.C hamplain,'St.  Lawrence Riter, tiieat Lakes, Lake  of the Woods, and on the Pacific  Coast. -  As Seen by Capt.

Capt. Schonwendt represents tho Hamburg shipping firm  which owns the wrecked steamer,  and which had many vessels nlying  to Orient-ill waters, especially during  the Russo-Japanese war when Capt.  Schonwendt was sent from Germany  to- look after lhe interests ' of his  house, and l.cop track of the vessels  in-Eastern  wateis.  The captain was in Vladivostock  during the outbreak anions Russian  .t-i'obps and witmssod many exciting  events there. With regard to the  cause of the trouble, he stated that  thcouU/ira'ts were occasic.nc-d by a  misunderstanding of an order which  tame from St. Petersburg in regard  to time expired soldiers. The order,  it, seems, s tat id that tlu-se men  would he relumed home gradually,  air being home within eight months.  Throup-h somebody's blunder this was  explained to t-he men n.s leading that  they would not l.e s-ent until eight  months -more service in the .-'east.  This caused great uneasiness among  the men, and being inflamed by the  looting of a few drinking houses the  uneasiness grew to a small rebellion.  LOOTING AND INCENDIARISM  Mouses were looted turd set on fire,  until     thc greater  part of  Vladivostock   was  up 'in  flames.   There    was"  none  of  the  indiscriminate  slaughter  of men,  women  anrL children as some  of the   yellow'���������'journals"would-" have  the  public     believe,   nor was     then-  such  a-  killing among the  troops hy  the  Cossacks who  were brought    to  Vladivostok    'to  quell  the, rebellion.  In Captain  Sch-onwenilt's opinion   ax  an eye witness   on    tlie   scene,    not  more    Ural  seven    or eight bundled  lives were lost instead oi many thousands as represented by press reports  The    interment     of  the thirty-two  men    vth.>     were    killed by  machine,  guns at the house of Uie Vladivostok  coinniaiidante,    which    lulling so incensed   the people that they threatened t-he commandantft's life,  was   buhl  irr, solemn state, though it    furnished  opportunity     for   revolutionary     display.     The    interments     were muulc  with  full  military  honors.   The cannon  on  Tiger* Hill  thundered a   salute,   while choirs  con>poseii  oi    soldiers chanted  dirges.     Two immense  processions,     in     which    then:;  were  thousands  of    soldiers,  sailors    and  civilians carrying red  flags and singing  revolutionary  son^s,  and  headed  by the regimental bands, escorted the  bodies to the cemetery.   The services  were conducted by both Catholic and  Orthodox ii-nests, and the coffins were  co.erod with   wreaths   1 earing    such  inscriptions as "To,the etein.il shame  of assassins."
