INSURING SEA DECISION.
of tlio Arbitrator's
Paris, August 15. Behrlng sea arbi
trators met this morning and the pres
ident, Baron de Courcel, dollvcred copies
of the decision. Afteiward he addressed
tho arbitrators, saying ho recognized
the great value of arbitration as a
means of pace between nations. He
expressed tho opinion that every Inter
national arbitration renuerea war jess
probable and ho said he looked forward
to the time In the near future when
it would bo the rule and not the ex
ception to settle International differ
ences this way. Senator Morgan, one
of tho American arbitrators, and Lord
Hannen, ono of the British, itsponded,
reciprocating the baron's sentiments
and recognizing the hor-pltality ren
dered by France. The session then
terminated, amid mutual congratula
tions and expressions of good feeling.
Tho award decides that by the
ukase of 1821. Itussla claims jurisdic
tion Jn Behrlng sea to the extent of
10b Italian miles from coasts and
Islands belonging to her, but In course
of the negotiations which led to the
conclusion of the treaty of 1821 with
the United States and 1825 with Great
Britain, Russia admitted that her Jur
isdiction should bo restricted to reach
the distance of a cannon shot from
shore. From that time up to the
cession of Alaska to the United States
Itussla never asserted In fact nor ex
ercised any exclusive Jurisdiction in
Behrlng sea, or any exclusive lights
to the seal fisheries, beyond tho ordi
nary limit of territorial -waters. On
the secend point It decided that the
bod of water now known as Behrlng
sea was Included In tho phrase "Pa
cific ocean" In tho treaty of 1828 be
tween Great Britain and Itussla. On
tho fourth point It Is decided that all
rights of insula to Jurisdiction and
to the seal fisheries passed to tho
United States, limited by the terms of
The fifth point, on which special
t.uaa hurl iam r.1nri fit f Im T1r.lt uA
commissioners, the tribunal de-
tided that the United BUte had no
right to protection of, or property in,
seals frequenting the islands of the
United States In Behrlng e& when
found outside the ordinary three mile
limit. The following regulation were
adopted by a majority of tho arbltra
tors, Mr. Marian and Sir John Thomp
Article 1 provides that tho United
States and Great Britain shall forbid
tiielr citizens anjl subjects hunting
fur seals within a zone of sixty miles
around Prlbyloft ltlar.tis. Article 2 pro
vides that there shall be a close season
trom May 1st to July 31st, In that part
of tho Pacific ocean Inclusive of Beh
rlng sea north of the 35th parallel of
north latltudo and eastward of the
isoth meridian of longitude, vntlt the
water boundary described In article 1
of the treaty of 1867 between the Unit
ed States and Itussla 1b reached along
that line to Behrlng straits. -Article S
provides that during the open season
only sailing vessels shall be permitted
to carry on fur sealing operations. Ar
ticle 4 provides that such vessels shall
be required to be provided with a
special license isMied by Its govern
ment nnd to carry a distinguishing
flag. Article 5 requires tho masters of
sailing vessels to keep a. log book of
their operations. Article 6 forbids tho
use of nets, fire arms or explosives In
rur sealing. This restriction docs not
apply to shot guns, when such are
usea m nshlng outsldo of Behrlng sea
uunng tno season when such huntln
may ne lawfully carried on, Article
sovon says tho two governments shall
take measure to control the
ntness of men authorized to engage
In sealing. These men shall have been
proved fit to hondlo with sufficient
skill weapons with which seal fishing
is carried on. Article S provides that
tho preceding regulations shall not ap
ply to Indians dwelling on tho coast
territories of tho United States or Great
Britain carrying on fur sealing In ca
noes or undecked boats not transported
by, or used in connection with, other
vessels, and propelled wholly by pad
dles, oars or sails, and manned by no
more than flvo persons In tho manner
hitherto praotlced by Indians; pro
vided thnt such Indians arc not em
ployed by other persons, and provided
uiai wnen so nunting in canoes or
undecked boats tho Indians Bhall not
hnnt fur seals outsldo tho territorial
waters under contract to deliver the
skins to anybody. This exemption is
not to be construed to affect the mun
icipal law of either oountry, nor shall
it extend to waters of Behrlng sea,
or watera around the Aleutian Islands
Nothing herein contained is intended
to Interfe'o with tho employment of
Indians as hunters, or otherwise in
connection with sealing vecsels as here
tofore. Article 9. "The concurrent
regulations hereby determined with a
view to the, protection and preservation
of fur seals, shall remain in force until
wholly, or In part, abolished or modi
fied by common agreement between tho
United States and Great Britain. Said
concurrent regulations must bo sub
mitted every flvo years to a new ex
amination In order to enable both gov
ernments to consider whether, In light
of past experience, there is occasion
to make any modification therein."
Tho arbitrators mako a special find
ing on tho facts agreed upon by tho
ngents of both governments with rcf
eren:o to the seizure of British ves
sels In Behrlng sea In 1887 and 1889.
In addition the arbitrators make cer
tain suggestions to tho two govern
ments, tho most Important being that
thoy should com to an understanding
to prohibit tho killing of seals on land
or sea for a period of from ono'to
three years, and should enact regula
tions to carry out the flndlmrs of tho

Taper Pulp From the I'oplur Tree. I
Attention is being moro than over
directed to tho host methods, of wood
pulp production. for tho manufacture
of paper and to most profitable
sources of supply present nnd future.
A drawback to tho uso of ninois that
tho wood needs to bo trenled chemic
ally beforo it is ground into pulp, or
before it is placed in tho digestor for
tho manufacture of either chemical
orsulphito pulp. Spruco is admit
tedly most superior as a wood pulp J
ror wulto paper.
Hemlock cannot bo used to advan
tage in connection with spruco pulp
for tho reason that its flber is moro
brushy, having less strength than
that of spruce, aud thero is alwj n red
coloring matter in connection with
hemlock which it is diilicult to re
move by chemicals. In tho first ex-
porimontH with wood pulp in this
country poplar appeurs to bo tho
most dosirnblo wood and was most
sought after for tho purpose. It pro
duces a soft fooling pulp nud requires
less chemicals to bleach it than other
woods, yet it lacks tho olomont of
strength and is thus inferior to
