SAINTED TOO BLACK
Canadian Sealers Deny That They
Destroy Ten Valuable Animals
iPOE EYERT SEAL THEY CATCB.
they Also Claim That They Do Kot Slaugh
ter the i'nrsing Mothers.
I0KD ETAKLET GEAD TO HEAR IT.
He Eopei Some Satisfactory Compromise Hay tie Hade
The Canadian sealers -who hare been
accused of destroying too many seals in their
pursuit of each seal placed on the market,
have denied that charge. Lord Stanley, in
replying to the sealers' address, agrees with
them in their conclusions, and says he is
glad to learn that they hare been maligned.
rSPECIAL TXLEQIUM TO TBI CISPATCILl
Ottawa, Xovemberl6. With more than
ordinary interest have the sealers of British
Columbia, and in fact Canadians generally,
been -waiting to hear what Lord Stanley
would hare to say regarding the recent
seizures ot Canadian vessels in Behring Sea
by United States cruisers, and after waiting
they know bat little more than they did
before. On laying their case before the
Governor General, during his recent visit to
Victoria, the Sealers' Association, in their
address to His Excellency, called attention
to the manner in which they had been mis
represented. "It has been published broadcast In En
gland, as well as in America,' the address
went on to say, "that lor every one seal
taken by our sealers and placed on the mar
let, ten seals are destroyed. We believe
that tbis statement, persistently made, and
has created, especially in England, a preju
dice against onr scalers, and it is to the
gross inaccuracy ot the statement we desire
to especially draw Tour Excellency's atten
tion. "We 'have abundant evidence, part
of which is already in the Department of
Fisheries, Ottawa,' that the actnal number
of seals killed by our sealers, but for a va
riety of causes not actually captured, does
not exceed six in every 100.
We are charged also with the wholesale
destruction of female seals while carrying
and nursing their young, thus destroying
immense numbers ot young seals as well.
To answer this charge it is only necessary to
say that the females breed upon the islands
in Behring Sea about midsummer; that
they remain with their young about two
months, seldom going more than a few miles
lrom the island tor food, and' consequently
do not come within reach of our sealing
vessels. The great majority of seals taken
in Behring Sea by onr sealers are what are
known as "bachelors" and "barren cows."
TOO CLOSE A SEASON.
"It has been stated that the matters in
dispute will probably be settled by a com
promise in the nature of a close season from
ilay to December in each year lor seal hunt
ins: in Behring Sea. As the only period of
the year when seal hunting can be carried
on in Behring Sea falls between May and
December, Your Excellency will see that a
close season, covering the period men
tioned, means practically the complete
closing of the sea to our sealers and
a monopoly of the fur trade by the Alaska
Commercial Company or other lessee of the
same rights and privileges now enjoyed by
that company lrom the Government of the
United States. We feel assured that Your
Excellency will, so far as is consistent with
your high and responsible position, be able

English Buckle Derbys at

Behring Sea will be more clearly defined
and their enjoyment unmolested."'
Replying to the address His Excellency
said:, "The matter on which we have met is
one of the most difficult and delicate ques
tions I could have to speak upon. It con
cerns not only your interests, but the inter
ests of the Dominion and the Imperial Gov
ernment, and '
THE INTERESTS OP KATIONS.
"I would take this opportunity of im
pressing upon yqur minds the fact that it is
the greatest of mistakes to suppose that you
have not considerable sympathy felt for you
in the mother country, and that delay in
the adjustment of the question lies in any
lack of interest manilcsted by the home
Government. I was a member of the Im
perial Cabinet when the first seizures were
made, and I can assure you that thee mat
ters very closely occupied the attentit n of
the Government at that time. At the
present time I cannot say more than that
diplomatic negotiations have been made and
will continue to be made. The United
States we regaid as a friendly power, and I
do not consider b.-t that onr representata
tion will be received with dne and proper
weight. I canoct say more. I think you
have very wisely taken the point on which
public opinion at home requires a certain
amount ot information.
"It has been persistently urged that of the
number of seals killed by your hunters a
very large proportion are lost altogether.
With many people
goes a long war in place of argument. If
you are able to show .that such is not the
case, and if you are also able to show that
the female seals are not destroyed by whole
sale, as stated, while they are nursing their
young, you will do very much to strengthen
the case which the Imperial Government is
endeavoring to make out for you. The
statements have been made in your address
very plainly, but at the same time I think
it would be of considerable advantage to me
if you could lurnish me with distinct infor
mation corroborative of what you say,
notably that the great majority of seals
killed in Behring Sea are what are known
as 'bachelors and 'barren cows.
"In regard to the close season: It appears to
me that the nenod nronosed. from Mnvlo De
cember, would be fir too one-sided, shutting
our sealers out altogether, and handing over
to the owners or lessees of the islands to
which the seals go during the breeding sea
son A MONOPOLY OP THE INDCSTBY.
"I cannot say much more upon the sub
ject of our meeting. I am glad to have the
opportnnity of assuring you that the Gov
ernment has no desire to pass this great
question by, and also of showing you the
importance of my receiving from you defi
nite information, based on your Knowledge
of the facts, which I can transmit at once to
the home Government, through the proper
