IHE BEHKI'(S SEA' DISPUTE.
Minister Phelps Has Done Much to Put
the Matter in Proper Light.
Nkw Yobk, April 5. Smalley, in his
London dispatch, says: "Phelps' article
in Harper', on the Behring sea question
has been copied in whole or in part in
many English journals. . It is a surprise
to the British public, or so much of the
British public as cares about seal fishing
in the North Pacific. Hitherto they
have been content to hold Blaine re
sponsible for all the troubles in this
quarter. They have been told by their
own papers, and by some of those in
New York, that Blaine took pureH- a
political view, and that the sober opin
ion of America was opposed to him.
They read with more or less satisfaction
the cabled abuse of the American states
man. Then enddenly - they are aon
fronted with Phelps. They know him
as one of the ablest of American minist
ers who ever represented his country in
England, as a lawyer of the first rank,
and as a citizen of the highest character.
They find him sustaining Blaine in every
material point in his controversy with
Salisbury. They are perplexed beyond
measure. Phelps has none the less done
a real service to his country by his very
powerful and convincing" statement of
America against England.
THE LAND PURCHASE BILL.
Tenants Gradually Returning to Their
Farms to Take Advantage of It.
London, April 5. It is stated hat
Smith Barry has notified the Tipperary
agent, Mr. Townsend, to make liberal
terms with the tenants returning to
their farms. Tenants have been grad
ually coming back for the past four
months, but the large body have held
out until now, when they make a com
plete surrender, and practically throw
themselves on the generosity of the land
lord. This is the end of the Tipperary
movement, .which has cost manv thous
ands of pounds to the Irish- National
League and its supporters in America
and Australia. - One reason for the sur
render of the tenants at this time is
their anxiety to take advantage of the
Irish land purchase bill, which comes up
this week, andjwill become a law .virtual
ly without opposition, except on the part
of Labouchere and a few English radicals.
Should the tenants not be in .posses
sion of their farms, they could not, of
course, take advantage of the bill. It is
said that both factions in parliment
favor the measure.
A CHICAGO HOTEL EPISODE.
A Little Bit of Carelessness Which Might
Have Resulted Disastrously.
Chicago, April 5. Alvin Pat ton, a
New York diamond merchant, who was
stopping at the Palmer house, called Fri
day night for a box, which had contained
$10,000 worth of diamonds, and which
he had deposited in the hotel safe that
noon. Opening it he found it was empty.
The diamonds were mostly a splendid
necklace, and had been sent from New
York to be shown the wife of one of the
prominent guests of the hotel. Mr. Pat
ton showed them to her at noon in the
parlor. They were supposed to have
been placed afterwards in the safe to
await the inspection of her husband.
He was unable to examine them, how
ever, until yesterday. After the box was
found empty there was the liveliest time
imaginable in the hotel. Walter Hun
gate, the first floor bell boy, attempted
to dust a piece of tissue paper from a
lounge in the parlor this noon, and in
doing so caused $10,000 worth of dia
monds to fall at his feet.
THE PRESIDENT'S NEW TACHT.
The Old Dispatch Has Outlived Her
Usefulness and Will Be Succeeded
by the Dolphin.
Washington, April 5. The president
is to have a new yacht. The old Dispatch
has outlived her usefulness. She will be
superseded by the dispatch boat Dolphin.
The navy department issued an order
yesterday. directing that the Dolphin be
sent at once to Norfolk, where her cabin
accommodations and other quarters will
be changed, the better to adapt her for
junketing purposes. The changes, how
ever, need not be expensive. She was
designed for this duty originally, but
President Cleveland didn't take kindly
to the proposition and she was put into
active service. The Dolphin is a steel
vessel of 1500 tons displacement, rigged
with three masts and propelled by a
single screw. She can steam fourteen
knots an hour.
The Pope's Marvelous Vitality.

Some, April 5. It is announced that

, Several of the Huns and Italians who

as they were trying to burn the plant of
a coke establishment in Pennsylvania
yesterday were not naturalized. It is too
inconvenient to kill alien persons in this
summary manner. Every vigilante com
mittee and sheriff's posse should carry
with it a federal court clerk, with a book
of blank naturalization papers, and per
form this ceremony before performing its

THE PEACE OF EUROPE.
While it is not Being Threatened
Troops are Prepairing for War.
London, April 7. The advices re
ceived here from several principal cap
itals of Europe show that the political
situation on the continent is regarded as
serious by leading statesmen. Several
significant moves have been made within
the pant few days.
The action of the Russian authorities
in doubling the strength of the Russian
force in Volgnia, is greatly discussed.
Greatest activity prevails among the
troops garrisoning the principal fortified
places. In France troops are being con
tinually drilled in the usual military
tactics and in addition they have been
subjected to various night alarms in or
der to test their ability rapidly to res
pond to a call to repel foes.
THAT BLANKET MORTGAGE.
Gould Admits that such is Being Con

interview Gould is quoted in reference

think that when the stockholders meet

something to offer in that connection.

Dogs Have Deteriorated.
While the grander sort of dog has
been morally degraded by being turned
Into a useless lackey, the breeds that
have happened to suit the eapricious and
errant fancies of animal petters have un
dergone a still deeper deterioration. The
sleek pug, for instance, on whom is often
lavished such a wealth of feminine fond
ness, has long since become perfectly
aware of his new function in the house.
He knows he is the first pet, and he is
perfectly happy in the fact. His mind
seems untroubled by any recollection of
a higher estate. , He has lost the ancient
desire of the species to be man's loyal
servant. He may, perhaps, if you happen '
to call at the house and find him in ex
clusive possession of the drawing room,
make a pretense of resisting your in
trusion. But bis Sybaritic h&bits are too
much for him, and presently he sinks
in voluptuous slumber on the softest of
sofa cushions. These spoiled creatures
learn to take the fondlings bestowed on
them as a matter of course. They are
wholly undemonstrative, and perhaps
the most flattering thing that can be said
of them is that, unlike their rival, the
cat, they do not simulate a tenderness of
which their heart is wholly destitute.

' An Experiment. '
Miss Pinckney, the lady who is at the
head of Margaret Winthrop hall, the
home where a number of girls of the
Cambridge school live, is working out
an interesting experiment successfully,
under the direction of Mr. Arthur Oil
man. She is making a real home for
girls away from home at school. A visit
to Margaret Winthrop hall shows how
completely the pleasant life of the home
is kept separate from the pleasant life of
the school. New York Telegram,'
