THE WAR CLOUD CONE.
Hlalne Auks tit Arbitration of Hip ItrlirUig
There Is no longer a probability of
hostilities between Kngllsh and Amorlcan
shls on Ik'hrlng sea, and the orders for
Increasing the American force there are
explained. Tho report of Special Agent
Elliott, who was sent to the sea to in
vestigate the reports that there wore few
seals left, has been filed at Washington
and Blaine, In view of tho evidence it
contains that ono or two more seasons
will exterminate the seals, has changed
his tactics ami asks, In a letter of Dec.
17 to Sir Julian Pauncefote, that the two
governments send a commission to see
ror Itself which lies, Tingle or Elliot, and
that the entire question at Issue be re
ferred to otbltrallou. Ills suggestion
docs not, as has been stated Ju some of
the pajiers, dodge the Issue of sovereignty
In Behring sea, but ho asks that the fol
lowing questions be submitted to what
ever arbitrators may be chosen.
"First What exclusive jurisdiction on
the sea now known as Behring sea, and
what exclusive right in the seal fisheries
therein, did Russia assert aud exercise
prior and up to the time of the cession
or Alaska to the United States?
"Second How rar were those cluims
or Jurisdiction as to the Bcal fisheries
recognized and conceded by Great Britain ?
"Third Was the body of water known
as the Behring sea Included In the phrase
" Pacific Ocean ' as used In the treaty of
1823 between Great Britain and Russia,
and what rights, It any. In the Behring
sea were given or conceded to Great
Britain by the said treaty?
Fourth Did not all the rights of
Russia as to jurisdiction and as to the
seal fisheries in the Behring sea east of
the water boundary In the treaty be
tween the United States and Russia of
March 30, 17, pass unimpaired to the
United States under that treaty?
" Fifth What are now . the rights of
the United States as to the fur seal fish
eries In the waters of the Behring sea
oubude of the ordinary territorial limits?
Whether such rights grow out of the
cessiou by Russia of any special rights
or the jurisdiction held by her In such
fisheries or in the waters of the Behring
ea or out of the ownership of the breed
ing islands and habits ot the seals In re
porting thither and rearing their young
thereon and going out from the island
for rood, or out or any other Tact or In
cident connected with the relation or
those seal fisheries to territorial jvisses
slous or the United States.
"Sixth H the determination or the
roregoing questions shall leave the sub-jH.-t
la such a position that a concur
rence or Great Britain Is necessary In
prescribing regulations for the killing or
fur seals in any part of the waters of
the Behring sea, then it shall be further
"First How far, if at all, outside of
the ordinary territorial limits Is It neces
sary that the United States should exer
cise exclusive jurisdiction In order to
protect the seals for the time living uMn
the tslands of the United States and feed
" Second Whether a closed season, dur
ing which the killing of seals in the
waters or the Behring sea outside or the
ordinary territorial limits shall be pro
hibited. Is necessary to save the seai
Osldng Industry, bo valuable and im
portant to mankind, from deterioration
or destruction? And If so,
" Third, what months or parts of months
should be Included In such a season, aud
over what waters It should extend?"
Blaine proposes to protect the seals
this year, it appears, and with that end
In view the naval force in Behring sea
Is to be strengthened, but he consents to
submit the question of jurisdiction to
arbltiation, which he has refused to do
heretofore, because It Is evident that pre
vious reports of treasury agents have
been erroneous and that a few yoars of
dallying with the question will leave no
seals to protccL
Meantltno the Victoria sealers have
varied their usual proeeeduro by sending
a man to Washington to ask what course
the United States proposes to pursue
toward them In Behring sea this year.
The Itarrnndia fane Again.
The letter of Secretary Tracy of the
navy to Commander Reiter, who has
been detatched from the service because,
being tho senior commander in the
Guatemalan part of San Jose, ho did not
interfere to prevent the seizure ot Bar
rundia on board the American ship Aca
pulco, has been published. In It Tracy
Your ships were on the spot; you had
full knowledge ot General Barrundla's
approach; you wero Informed of tho In
tention to sob.o him as a political offender.
He was not a fugitive from tho territory
ot Guatemala seeking to escapo terri
torial jurisdiction, neither was ho a con
spirator attempting . to return to his
country to foment a revolution. Ho was
a passenger on board an American ship,
which he hod joined in Mexico with ids
destination for Panama, and he had thus,
without your intervention and outside of
local jurisdiction, obtained a place under
the flag and protection of tho United
States. In this situation you found him
and his safety was threatened. Under
these circumstances it was your plain
duty to proceed at once to meet the
steamer, beforo she cast anchor m port,
to warn the captain or tho danger and
offer to his passenger, should ho desire
It, an asylum on board your ship. Even
after the arrival ot the Acapulco In port
your power of discretionary action was
by no means taken away.
It Is believed that few cases have ever
occurred In the history of the United
States navy whero a commanding officer
so completely abandoned the responsi
bility of his position as, according to
your own showing, you did upon this
critical occasion. A United States officer
does not ask of foreign governments
permission to offer an asylum to any
person on board an American vessel at
sea who stands in need of refuge. An
officer who so abdicates his authority
and that of the nation he represents and
surrenders It to others has a lesson to
learn before be can safely be intrusted
with the eommand of a ship of war.

Scl From the State I'nlvrrxlty,
The following aie offered In addition lo
those heretofore announced, to be for
warded from the slate university by E.
J. Wlckson, Berkeley, free of cost except
tho sums named which are to pay for
packing and postage:
Block Wattle ( Acacia decurrens ). This
tree has demonstrated Its adaptation to
most California climates. Is a rapid grower
and very desirable as a shade or orna
mental tree as well as for Its economic
Importance as the source ot tho wattle
lult ot commerce. Small troou sent out
front tho university are already bearing
sed in several localities In the state.
General success Is reported with seed
previously sent out, where the seed has
been put In boiling water and allowed to
stand aud cool li hours before planting.
Otherwise the seed may not gei minute
until tho second year. Tho seed Is small,
and a packet properly handled should
give trees far a" largo plantation; 2c a
luu-ket by mail.
Licorice. This luiHrtant commercial
plant has demonstrated lis adaptation to
California conditions, and offers Induce
ments to those who have suitable luiuls.
The Importation of licorice from Europe
to the United States Is very large and
the market for the local product U very
promising. Isaac Iea of Florin, Sac
ramento county, our largest producer,
obtains He a pound for dried, medium
sized roots, such as druggists use, ami
the manufacture ot stick licorice would
probably iay even better. If one would
give the effort needed to succeed In Its
production. Licorice produces lat on
low, moist ground. Land that Is over
flowed In winter suits it well and sub
mergence does not Injure the plant. It
will, however, grow on almost any soil.
The roots should be planted In rows four
feet apart, the roots filiced one foot apart
In the row and cultivated like corn. Har
vesting Is done by plowing out with a
strong team or digging with spades. The
plants which we send to each applicant
will soon give mils enough to plant a
large area If desire I. Let It be remem
bered, however, that licorice In laud
which Is desired for other purposes Is a
troublesome weed and hard to eradicate.
We send tlve root cuttings to each aw
plicant; lue by malt, poettald.
IKsier Willows. The demand for the
choice varieties of Austrian Osier willows,
which we grew from cuttings received
from the United States department ot
agriculture, soon exhausted the supplies
available last year. We have therefore
produced a larger supply for this year's
distribution. Nine varieties sent In lots
of 10 ot a kind ; llhs a lot or one dozen
assorted, 2'c by mail.
Mulberries. Cuttings of the following
kinds ran be had: Multicaulls; Alba;
Russian; Downlng's Ever-bearing; Lhoo;
Nagasaki. Sent in lots of 10 ot a kind ;
loe a lot or 12 cuttings assorted, 2'Y' by
Resistant Grape Vines. These vines are
not desirable for trult-bearliig, but are
offered to those desiring to test them as
stocks for grafting. Cuttings of the fol
owing species of Vltls can can be had :
Clnerea; Aestivalis; Cordlfolia; Candl
cans; Riparla; Arizonlca; Californica;
MoiiUcoln; Novo. Mexlcana; Rupestris;
Vulplna; Romanetl; Spido-vitis Davidll.
Sent in lots of 10 ot a kind ; lOu a lot or
a dozen assorted, 2 k) by mall.
Fruit Tree Scions. The university or
chard contains upward ot 500 named
varieties of fruit, and our report on " Ag
ricultural Experiment Slat Luis," 1S.H),
pages 182 to 187, contains a full list. This
report will bo sent to all npplicauts
who may order any of the varieties
named. We may not be ablo to supply
all applications for sonio of the newer
varieties, liecauso the trees are small.
We do not furnish rooted trees, but
scions, for grafting. We do not send
large quantities of any variety, because
the object Is to test varieties and not to
furnish material ror commercial proaga
tion. Send 10c ror each dozen or a single
kind, or 20c tf a dozen or assorted vari
eties Is ordered.
The shipment of several carloads of
Butte and other northern county oranges
to tho east this year has answered the
contemptuous question which has hereto
fore been asked ot champions of tho
northern citrus belt: "How many car
loads of oranges do you Bhip in a year?"
It does not provo that orange raising
will bo profitable in tho north.
Cotton raising Is not likely to provo
profitable In California until wages fall,
and it is probably best to go on In the old
way, getting good pay for work and
buying the cotton cheaper work else
where has produced.
Sorghum can be grown and syrup man
ufactured at a profit In this state. There
Is no question or that any longer. The
syrup Is prererred to tho many kinds of
drips" that fill tho market by those
who have tried it. Yet the demand Is
not very lively. When the people are
educated up to its use, as they will be in
lime, this will be an Important branch of
California agriculture, for tho sweet tooth
is being developed In the American race
at a rapid rate.

Wo do not believe In taxing oleomar

"No farmer owning suitable land for
garden vegetables with a village market
near by should complain of hard times
as long as his village neighbors obtain
their vegetables and fruits through a city
market,' says an exchange. A large part
of the green grocery supplies which come
to large cities are sent thence into
country towns to sbpply a demand that
could just as well bo tilled by local cul
tivators. Shame on such an extravagant
system of living.
We never saw tho soil too rich for tho
apple. Kitchen ashes, in which the table
refuse Is thrown, is an excellent top
dressing for apple trees. Good ditch
scraointrs are better than nofflinir. The
apple borer leads to starvation oftener
than poor soil, as the supply of food is
cut off by every move the borer makes.

Keep the ITies Down.
The house fly la a very thirsty animal
and cannot go over 3G hours without
water at hand; so one of the simplest
observances of the vigilant housewife is
to keep no liquids around in any way
accessible to them. They are in this
way easily kept away from rooms where
food need not be, and the rooms do not
have to be shrouded in semi-Egyptian
darkness to keep them out either. The
early fly, like the early "worm, la, after
all, the easiest to catch, the hardships
being all the "up and at it" part of the
performance. They come in scant num
bers, big and lazy here in winter. One
finds no trouble in catching them one
by one with the fingers. Later they get
lively and saucy too numerous by far.
unless kept down by an occasional dose
of "buhach" or persistently trapped.
Here la a recipe for a good fly extermin

one teaspoonful of brown sugar and one
teaspoonful of cream; mix them well
together and place them in a room on a
plate where flies are troublesome and
they will soon disappear.

A half-breed boy of Mexican and
Indian blood recently attracted much
attention at Winslow. A. T.. by the f
performances of an educated tarantula
he owns, says the Philadelphia Times.
He carries the big, formidable-looking '
insect in a large wooden box slung
about bis neck, which, when exhibiting i
his pet, he places on the ground as a - '
sort of stage. At the command of its i
master the tarantula mounted a small
ladder, rang a bell and performed oa f
a miniature trapeze. Then, to the ;
thumping of a tambourine in the hands
of the boy, it proceeded to revolve
slowly about, as if waltzing, and when
it had finished saluted the crowd by,
lifting one leg three times. : -
After its performance was over it
crawled to its master's shoulder, where '
it sat, occasionally running around his
neck or down into his bosom. The " . ,

then gradually taught it the tricks it
knows. He declares that it is mud

which also covers the limbs, bnt is ,
