Angry Over the Bolzuro of the Black
Absolutely No Ofllolnl Information nt

\VnltltiR For Infornintlon.
OTTAWA , Ont. , July 31. The report thut
the cabinet { Is considering the Bohrlng
Bcaumttor Is untrue , Tlio minister of cus
toms has telegraphed to Victoria , 13. C. , for
a report of the affair. As soon as It comes
to hand n strong remonstrance will ho sub
mitted to the Imperial government
The Toronto Empire prints a special dis
patch from hero which snya : "Tho latest ac
count of piracy hy the United States In Bea
ring sen continues to bo much discussed In
official circles. A dispatch has been received
ntthoflshorka department from Baker , M.
P. , giving additional particulars of the seiz
ure of the Black Diamond. It appears that
the vessel was seized when suvonty miles
from shoro. Uulior says that n
Blrong feeling of rcsontmcnt and
indignation has been engendered
among the Inhabitants of British Columbia
by this wanton outrage and thut n meeting
of the citizens of Victoria is to bo hold to
express thulr Indignation. This dispatch
wus under consideration by the council yes
terday. Until an ofllclal report Is bo fora the
government no action can bo taken , and the
minister of customs accordingly telegraphed
to the collector at Victoria to forward full
particulars without loss of tlmo. The col
lector's reply was received last evening , but
it appears that the Information which ho
has to jrlvo Is no fuller than that already
published. "
ut Victoria.
VICTOIIIA , B , C. , July 31. Great Indigna
tion Is felt here over the seizure of the
schooner Ulaclc Diamond In Hchring sea by
the United States rcvonuo cutter. A public
meeting will probably bo held and resolu
tions passed for transmission to tl.o Impe
rial parliament , asking that the Imperial
government interfere In behalf of British
vessels engaged in the sealing trade , it is
believed here that if but ono man has bcon
placed aboard the Lilnck Diamond hnr can-
tain will not obey orders aud will sail for
Victoria Instead of Sitka.
WASHINGTON , July 31. Inquiry at the de
partment of state this morning was met by
the statement that there was absolutely no
information here respecting the seizure of
the Triumph and Black Diamond by the
rovontoo duller Rush for scaling in Beliring
sea , except that contained In tlio Associated
press dispatches on the subject. In
conversation with a prominent oDluial , ho said
that whutovor might liuvo boon the policy of
the last administration , it was evident tnut
the present adtninistiutlon did not look with
disfavor upon the scizuro of British or other
vessels suspected of poaching on United
Stales soul fishing grounds. As lo tno re
port that an understanding existed , by
which the British government was
not to taltc notice of such seiz
ures , ho Unow nothing. If any
such understanding existed , ho was not
nwaro of It. The case of the seizure and
bearch of the Triumph , which .was after
wards released because no sealskins were
found on board , this ofllclal intimated , mlpht
bo a moro serious matter than the seizure
and detention of the Black Diamond , for
it involved the right of the United States
to seize and search suspected vessels out
side of wliut It conceded to bo the limits of
Jurisdiction of the United States. This gov
ernment , ho said , claims that right within a
limit not yet acknowledged by England , ana
the settlement of the question , alter all , Is
to be 0110 of Jurisdiction.
An Interview With Blnlne.
BANOOK , Mo. , July ai. A reporter called
Secretary Blalno's attention to the declara
tion of a Boston papar of to-day to the effect
that it would bo Impossible for the national
government to sustain the protenaions of
Secretary Blalno that Bohrlng sea , is dis
tinctly American water. Tno sot-rotary
simply remarked that it might ho well for
the paper In question to indicate the occa
sion , olllclal or unofllela ) , whuro ho had said
anything at all on that point. Blalno made
the further statement that everything done
on the fur seal question since the 4th of hist
March was in literal compliance with the
dirocttons contained In the act of corgrcss ,
which was approved by President Cleve
land on tlio last aayof his term.
No Chll l'n Piny.
WASHINGTON , July ni. Assistant Secre
tary of the Treasury Tichonor , in a talk wltli
a Post reporter to-night , about the Bohrlng
sea sohuro , said :
"Thoro will bo no child' * play
about this administration. Tlio oftlccrs ol
the revenue cutter in Bohring sea have
plum and unequivocal orders. They will
seize every vessel , American or British ,
found violating the law. Great Britain
claims the rights to the fisheries , it is true ,
but Great Britain Is In the habit of claiming
everything. All idea of redress or indem
nity under the circumstances is absurd. The
matter will bo treated us a trespass. "

CHICAGO , July 31. [ Special Telegram to
TUB BED. ] Martin Burke , of Chicago , tem
porarily detained In Winnipeg , must bo the
key to the problem of the Cronln tnurdor.
"Walt till Burke gels back , " that's what
everybody says.
"Wait till Burke gets back and I'lltollyou
some news , ' ' says States Attorney Longo-
"Wait till Burke comes back and hoMl toll
you some facls that will gctmo out of here , "
says John F. Bcggs.
In either view of the matter Burke must
know a great deal about the secret history
iho real facts of the conspiracy. It is moro
than probable that the , officers hayo good
reasons for believing that Burke has n story
to toll , and that he will toll It. Burke un
doubtedly talked ubout the murder before ho
went away , and in a voln which gavp people
who Clari-r.n-Gaol
wore conversant with - -
matters an insight Into the truth. Ofllcor
Collins was a friend , n sort of chum of
Burko's. Burke talked to him and
told him certain things which at
the tinio they were revealed wcro
not significant. After Cronln's body was
found nnd the facts concerning the inner
circle of Camp SO began lo bo exposed ,
Burko's remarks to Collins acquired n now
Interest nnd showed to Collins as ho recalled
them Ihat Burke must have known the nctupl
facts with regard to the murder of Dr.
Cronin. Collins sought Burke and demanded
further details. Burke became suddenly re
ticent. Then Collins told his mispicious to
Captain Schuclller , and ofllcors were sent to
arrest Burke , but ho wns gone. Ofllcer
Collins went to Winnipeg as much for the
purpose of having a lalk with his quandom
friend as of Identifying him. But tlio Can
adian authoriiics would not permit this.
Now that Burlto must return to Chicago
Collins will bo his companion and all
his persuasive powers will bo broueht
to bear on Burke 10 Induce
him to confess. The authorities hero
think the effort will bo successful. Mean
while litllo or nothing is being done hero.
Everybody is waiting for Burke. Burke can
toll , It he will , who "J. B. Siuionds" Is. Ho
was Burko's companion nt the Clark street
flat. Ho can tell who told him to hire the
Cailson rottago , nnd who was deputed to call
for Dr. Cronin. Ho can glvo all the details
of the murder , Iho disposition of tin body ,
what was done with the clothes and the
doctor's instrument ' case , nnd where the
fatal weapons were hidden ; in fuel , it is
known that Burke can tell overylhln ? about
the conspiracy except Iho ringleaders of it ,
nnd ho may bo able to loll about them.
The warrant was sent to Winnipeg to
Chief of Police Hubbard and Lieutenant
Ross arrived in the city to-day for the pur
pose of conducting Martin Burke back lo
Chicago. Hubbard says lie will lake all nec
essary prccauilons lo prevent any attempt
al Ihu rescue of Burko.

The Pension Investigation. "
WAsniNOTNifi Jnly 31. The commlttoo-
rocenily appointed by Secretory Nohlo to
Investigate the alleged illegal rulings of pen ;
slons by the pension bureau hits completed
the first week of its labors. The original
order of Secretary Noble directed that the
Investigations should cover all the opcrai-
tlonsofiho bureau during the last twelve
months , but a superficial examination cenT
vinced the committee that a searching exam
ination of all the cases adjudicated in thut
tmio would occupy them at least six months ,
so upon tacit understanding , ! ! not the express
direction of the secretary , the committee
bus thus far confined their work to the
months of December in last ycnr and May
in the present year. An examination cover
ing six months will probably bo completed
by next Saturday or early iu the coming
week , when a report will bo made to Secre
tary Noblo. It Is learned from parties bo-
llovcd to have knowledge of the work of the
committee that during iho month of Decem
ber last , under Commissioner Black's ud-
mlnistrution , there were found to huvo boon
made about fifteen hundred reissues of pen
sions , and during the month of May , under
Commissioner Tanner's administration ,
eighteen hundred rolssues. Those reissues
cover all classes known to the pension laws ,
and include all the cases of rorullug , which ,
it is said , average from u to 6
per cent of the whole number of reissues.
Therefore Iho rcmtiiigs found in these two
months will probably uggrcgato less than
200. . It Is stated further that the reratinga
probably do not average moro than $3 to M
per month , but the arrears In many onsen
are carried back to the date of the original
application , some of them as far as 1SU5.
The investigation , so far us it has gone ,
is believed to hnvo convinced the committee
that llicro has been u gradual increase in tbo
number of pensions rcrutcd since late in the
summer or in the early full of last year. It
is confidently asserted that the committee
has discovered nothing whutovor of u sensa
tional character , either In the number of ro-
ratings or the amount of money involved.
