general topic of conversation to-day
among business men wa3 the sensa
tional report of the movement of
British aud American men-of-war in
Paget Sound. It is alleged to have
some relation to the Behrins sea
question. Those who arc most inter
ested in the matter are inclined to
throw doubt on the report. Louis
Sloss, of the Alaska Commercial
Company, said this morning there
would be no trouble, as there was
nothing to fight for. The American
Commercial Company has only se
cured 21,009 skins this season, caused
by the wholesale hunting of both
British and American sealers. Neither
England nor the United Stales could
afford to tight for a market of this
kind. Two mariuers from Seal Island
say that there are thirty or more ves
sels there and near about. Their
crews are idle while the revenue cut
ters are about, but it is an open secret
that all are there for scaling and for
no other purposes.

Important Matter.
Special to The Astoriax.I
Washington, D. C, Aug. 23. "I.
don't think much of the movement to
send an agent of this country abroad
for the purpose of securing co-operation
of Europeans in favor of the free
coinage of silver," said Senator
Stewart this evening. "I think that
wo should assume an attitude of inde
pendence instead of going around
begging. The great trouble would bo
to find a competent man. I would not
want to send any man over there un
less he were a man eminently well
qualified for tho mission. If an agent
were sent, I think he should have full
power to negotiate on behalf of this
country. I don't think anything will
bo gained by an effort to negotiate
with other countries on the subject"
