sador Foster, for the suspensidn of Pelagic

of that madeher(rla!st.week by Wilfred
Lanrier Had tit Loui Bavlei and reeoTeS
by the reprefintatives of tho- United States.
Nothiiig has occurred since to change their
views regarding the proposition. If, upon
receipt of the official text of Canada's re
ply, it proves to contain nothing addition
al in the way of suggestion," no progress is
likely to be made from the present condi
tions. ' .
The opinion of those interested in the
m'a'tter is that the Canadian officers do
not intend to do anything toward shutting
off PelgJc sealing. ,
