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.

San Francisco, April 7. Wheat, buyer '91, 1.57- 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.
