William II. Williams, who went to
Seal Island three months ago as a spe
cial at nt of the government, has just
returned to Washington. He said that
tlespite the presence of nearly a dozen
American and English men-of war in
and around Bchriug Sea illicit sealing
was being carried on extensively. Pre
vailing fogs in the sea made it easy for
fast-sailing schooners to elude pursuit,
and Williams is of the opinion that the
illegal catch for the present season will
number 20,000 seals. Of the 7,500 skins
allowed privilege holders this year 0,300
caught by natives for food have already
passed into the hands ut t he North Amer
ican Commercial Company. This leaves
only 1,200 seals to lie captured Is-tween
now and May 1 of next year; and, as
that niimls-r will not supply the Aleuts
on the Islands of St. Paul and St. George
with food, the Commercial Company will
have to keep the natives from starving.
Williams is of the opinion that a couple
of years' protection to seals is necessary

Surrendering with the last forlorn
hope, after four years and several months
of actual active service, he resumed his
duties of citizenship to his native State,
relapsing into those peaceful pursuits in
winch he could serve his people most
beneficially. In 1807 he was elected As
sistant Secretary of the Finance Com
mittee of the City Council, where his
intelligent administration of the office
soon promoted him tothe Secretaryship.
With varying successes to himself
financially he thereafter engaged in va
rious commercial enterprises, until ot
lute years he acquired a home in the
town of Waveland, adjoining Bay St.
Louis, Miss., where his progressive spirit
and enlightened enterprise were soon
recognized, and he was elected and is
still serving as a Councilman of that cor
poration. His suggestions of progress
were soon adopted bv his new constitu-
ents.and some time ago he was called up
on to serve as President of the Gulf Coast
Ice and Manufacturing Company, which
is now affording such material comforts
to the denizens of that lively little town.
Many years ago he accepted a a ibal

and advantage to the company.
He is also a Director in the Cherokee
Iron Manufacturing Company of Rusk,
Tex., which has sought the benefit of his
advice and experience, and altogether he
finds his time well taken up with the
administration of the affairs of others.
Yet with his multifarious duties he re

friend and safe adviser, one upon whom
none who know him ever hesitate to en
