KUS8IA AND NOT EStuS-
The Uulted Stat.s AJviod toWithdiaw From
WAKinsiiTiis, Mareli Iii If President
Harrison has a friend in a newspaper in
this country it is the Washington 1VM
which bus yet never undertaken the
rather ilillicult task of denying the ex
istence ul the correspondence that has
Missed between the United Sta'es and
Kussia. The Post this tnorninr says
"The Post has alieady urged '.he right
ol Kussia to he considered in this matter
in a much more explicit manner. The
propriety of our entering into sm h alli
ances, commercial or otherwise, as muy
strengthen the nation and promote its
welfare, and the propriety of a compact
bet ween Kussia and the United States,
with reference to their mutual interests
and N.issession in Behring sea, is too
obvious to call for argument. We have
insisted from tlie fust that it was a mis
take to consider the idea of arbitrating
with England as to a right which we ac
quired from Kussia, and in which Eng
land had no sort of standing. It was an
exhibition of characteristic British im
pudence to make such a proposition and
of characteristic American thoughtless
ness to entertain it for a fraction of
a second. In doing so we consented to
the impeachment of our own title, to a
slur upon the integrity of the transac
tion to which this title was conveyed to
us, and to the admission of England's
right to enter a claim in the premises.
It was a miserable blunder from begin
ning to end. It is not too late, how
evor to withdraw from this sinister en
tanglement. Thanks to Lorn Salisbury's
latest performance in the field of his
peculiar diplomacy, and to the interlude
of plain, straightforward American
assertion, with which Mr. Har
rison has favored ua, there seems to be
a jierfectly legitimate opportunity for us.
No one can complain if we take advan
tage of this opportunity to retire from
the whole wretched complication and
stand once more upon our rights and
our recovered manhood . "

There was great rejoicing among Cleve

Chicago, March 2(5 Alderman
Bowles and MieliaeWin were indicated
bxlav by the grand jury, making nine
city fathers in all who must acijuit them
selves before the jmlgu and jury or don
strid clothes. The seeitk charge
against Bowles is that he attempted to
mulct real eUte owners to the extent of
$10,000 for pulling through a street-car
ordinance on Milwaukee avenue; that of
Michaelson that he tried to bleed coal
merchant who wanted permission of
the city council to lay a switching track.
Death af Walt Whitman.
Philadklahia, March 2d. Walt Whit
man died this evening.
He passed away calmly and peace
fully, like a child asleep. He had been
weaker thin usual for some day past;
had a sinking spell last night, but re
covered somewhat. Again at 4 :30 this
afternoon he began to sink. Dr. Alex.
McAllister reached the dying man's bed
side shortly afterward. The doctor
found the poet in a dying condition. He
asked the patient if he suffered pain, and
he whispered the answer, "no." Three
minutes before death, he said lo bis at
tendant, "Weary, shift." They were
the last word uttered by Mr. Vhitman.
His breath caine fainter and fainter and
at exactly at 0:43 p. m. be passed away.

Coi-CMiics., March 26. The defeat of
Governor M'Kinley in the election for
tern pot ary chairman of the state conven
tion last night was the most audacious
and vindictive act of the long-continued
Foraker Sherman light. The foraker
men evidently deliberately planned
to humiliate the governor for the part
he took in the senatorial fight, and, it is
said, pledged themselves to support him
in ordei to induce him to be a candidate
for the chairmanship.
Bund by Their Principles.
Dks Moinks, la., March 28. This
evening the republican members of the
legislature listened to speeches and reso
lutions from anti-prohibition republicans
from different cities, and alter a secret
caucus they appointed a conunittee to
reply. This reply is to be in line with
the action already taken in the house,
saying they cannot go back on the
pledge given by tlie party last year to
allow prohibition to remain a law of the

have been well, according to one of the
most broad-minded senators, il the pub-
lie had been truthfully informed upon
those points, for popular ignorance pre
vails in England as well as the United
it is learned now that as far back as
last June the president suggested that
the question of liability of each govern
ment for damages inflicted upon citizen
or property be left to the decision of the
arbitrators. The British government
declined to commit itself to the doctrine
that it is responsible for the acts of its
subjects which in the language of Salis
bury, " involves the propositions that
her majesty's governorment is liable to
make good the losses resulting from the
wrong action of persons sailing outside
their jnrisdicton under the British flag."
The president finally consented to a
modification which included in the
treaty permitting the two governments
to submit to arbitration facts bearing
upon claims for damages and leaving to
it the determining of the juestion of
liability. The question in this condition
when the treaty was signed, and not
since, has been touched upon in the cor
respondence. Salisbury's ostensible
reason for the non-renewal of the modus
vivendi is that the representations of
the commissioners sent to Alaska are
that there is no necessity for a re
newal. There is believed by a number
oi senators to be a disposition by Salis
bury to use his present position to gain
concessions from the United States upon
qther points of the controversy, such
as unsettled claims for damage, to
favorably impress Canada with an ap
parent disposition to heed her demand,"
and avail himself of the present oppor
tunity to retaliate upon this government
for illegal infraction of the spirit of last
year's modus in permitting the North
American Commercial company to kill
more than seventy-five hundred seals.
It is believed that these reasons will so
far influence Salisbury as to prevent
a renewal of the modus on the same
terms as last year, But not to determine
him in an effort of force to protect seal
ers for actions he has declined to assume
the responsibility of.
