The Exact Points of Contention in tie
Benring Sea Dispute.
CLAIMS OF CONTENDING PARTIES
Both Freely Admitted a Destruction of
Seals, but Attribute it to Far
New York, March 25. At the meet
ing Thursday of the Behring sea arbitra
tors, it was decided the sittings would
not be held behind closed doors. This
permits the making public of the exact
points of the contention. Briefly stated,
the case of the United States is that Al
askan fnr seal is begotten, born and
reared, only upon Pribyloff islands, to
which the seal return each spring to
spend several months consorting to
gether ; that while at these islands the
seals are easily controlled ; that . discri
mination can be and has been exercised ;
that while absent from these islands dur
ing migration, which reaches as far south
as the coast of California, they land on
no other shore, and mingle with no other
herd of fur seals ; that because of these
habits the Alaskan herd and each indi
vidual of it is the property of the United
States, The method employed by open
sea sealers is attacked by the American
government as destructive, wasteful and
exterminating. It is claimed a large
percentage of the eeals killed by open
sea hunters are females, a majority ' of
which are about to become or are moth
ers. The destruction of the pregnant
female causes the death of the unborn
young. The death of the mother seal,
killed while in search of food in the
waters of the Behring sea, destroys the
offspring on the Pribyloff islands.
It is further claimed that many seals
shot in open sea by hunters escape mor
tally wounded or sink before the hunter
reaches them. Open sea sealing, it is
argued, will result in the destruction of
the herd in the near future. On the is
lands only a limited number of the male
seals are killed. As the seal is polyga
mous, a large number of males can be
killed without affecting the birthrate of
the herd." On these facts the American
government claims, from the nature of
the industry established on the Priby
loff islands, that the United States has
the right to protect and preserve these
seals wherever they may be found, as
the animals can only be killed on United
States territory, without ' danger of ex
termination. It is also claimed, owing
to the long period of gestation, that pel
agic sealing cannot at any time be other
wise tnan destructive, dangerous ana
wasteful, and should be prohibited.
The case of Great Britain, on the other
hand, is that Alaskan seals have not the
characteristics of animals that can be
made subject to property ; that it is not
certain they land only upon the Priby
loff islands, or that they do not inter
mingle with the Russian seal nerd ; or
thai they are pelagic in. nature, and
therefore should be treated as fish rather
than land animals ; (that many of the
propositions essential to the position
taken by the United States are unproven
or contrary to facts. As to pelagic seal
ins, it is claimed the destructiveness
and wastefulness has been greatly ex
aggerated ; that it is a legitimate and
proper method of taking seals, and can
be taken without danger of exterminate
ing the herd. Much importance is also
given by the British government to the
jurisdiction it claims over Behring sea
but this appears to be treated by the
United States as a secondary qnestion
Both nations concede the seals have de
creased, the United States charging such

decrease to the destruction of open sea
sealing, and Great Britain claiming the
present condition has been caused by the
excessive number of males killed on the
islands and the injurious effect of the
methods there employed.

Washington, March 25. The arrival
of Emanuel Myer in Washington has
put a different phase upon the contest
for collector of customs at Portland.
Myer filed his application today, to
gether with all his indorsements. He
and bis friends think that Black cannot
be appointed in the face of these indorse
ments. H. Gray,- who believes that
there is no doubt of his appointment as
collector of Alaska, has formed a com
bination with Myer, and is doing all he
can for him.
Whitney May Succeed Lincoln.
Washington, March 25. A rumor,
with many elements of probability, was
current id the corridors of the state de
partment today that W. C. Whitney, of
New York, will succeed Robert T. Lin
coin at the court of St. James. The
only doubt in the matter is in regard to
Whitney's wishes. There is no question
that he will be appointed provided the
office is acceptable to him.
Ko Selection Made.
Washington, March 25. In reference
to a rumor that ex-Secretary William C.
Whitney will be appointed ambassador to
Great Britain, it is stated o.niunquestion
able authority that neither Whitney nor
any other man has been selected for the
position. In fact, it is asserted posi
tively, on the same authority, that the
matter of appointing a successor to Mr.
Lincoln has not been considered.

An i Attempted Murder and Successful
Portland, Or., Mar. 26. Charles H.
Gove, real estate agent, shot and seri
ously wounded' Conrad J. Smith, book
keeper, last evening, and then sent ' a
bullet crashing through his own brain.
The tragedy occurred about 6 :40 o'clock,
at the intersection of Third and Alder
streets. Four shots were fired. Smith
was hurried to Surgeon Young's office,
where his single wound in the body was
examined and pronounced not necessa
rily fatal, and Gove's remains were re
moved to the morgue. In one of the
dead man's pockets .was found a bank
book, several pages of which was cov
ered' with a lead pencil scrawl, which
gave the first clue to his identity and the
cause of his terrible deed. The. follow
ing was written :
"Five years - ago next August, about
the 14tb, C. J. Smith, while I was out
of the city, began rooming at my home.
At the said time said S. was a business
partner of mine... About a week after he
began rooming at my house, he entered
my wife's bedroom and attempted to
rape her person. He was immediately
and unceremoniously dismissed from the
room, but fearing business entangle
ments, she failed to do entirely what she
should, but allowed him to remain in
the house until my return, when she at
once told me all. I kicked him out at
once, but did not do more, because I
wished to avoid entangling my wife in a
way which might reflect more or less
upon her. I of course knew all concern
ing the matter, and I hereby swear by
the Almighty God that I know (so far as
my intellect allows) that my wife told
mo all, since she informed me at once
regarding the matter. I have brooded
on the fact of a business partner so
basely acting until I am nearly wild. I
now propose to castrate said Smith or
kill him tonight,' entirely optional with
him. In case I must take his life, I will
also, to avoid further entanglements,
take my own. " C. H. Govk."
Smith was removed to the office of
Dr. Young, where an examination was
made of his injuries, which were found
to be not necesearily fatal. The bullet
was extracted, but before the operation
of probing for it he made the following
"Gove and I have been associated in
business, and have bad several little
difficulties. But I was never intimate
with his wife, nor did I ever attempt to
take advantage of her. Even believing
that I may die, I deny that I ever made
any criminal overtures to Mrs. Gove."
There is little doubt that Gove was
broken down mentally. His actions for
some time indicated this, and his friends
looked gravely upon his melancholy de
meanor and appearance. He seemed
downcast, and was given to ridiculous
sayings. Friday he entered the office of
a prominent real estate firm and in
quired for one of the partners. Not
being in, Gove left word to the effect
that be was very anxious to. see hi tn, as
he (Gove) had just been released from
jail. Many similar stories were brought
out by his terrible deed last evening . .

."A Portland syndicate has had eight
placer filings made, aggregating about
160 acres, on Three Creeks, situated
about ten miles northeast of here. It
has been -known for a good while that
this part of the country Mfas rich in gold
and the people have been patiently wait
ing for capital to come in and develop
these placer findings. The company
will begin operations as soon as spring
opens, and it is supposed machinery

A Threatened Suit.
- There is promise of a highly-colored
sensation among the gossips of Pendle
ton. The cause of all this prospective
excitement was a bow on the street, an
interrogation, a tender missive contain
ing warm expressions of love from a
married man to a married woman, etc.
The parties who are interested for the
woman threaten to bring the matter
into the court and make the postage on
the letter rather more expensive than
Uncle Sam's charges. The letter was
sent by the little son of the woman.
The letter is still in existence. East
