PRESIDENT DIAZ OF MEXICO.'
New York, Jan. 31. A special to the Sun from Monterey, Mexico, sayB
A Cabinet officer Is authority for the statement that If the arbitration plan
proposed by the Pan-American Congress Is consummated, President Porflrlo
Diaz will resign from otTlce and spend the remainder of his days In retire
ment. He Is heartily In favor of tho peaco movement, as It will assure tho
peace of Mexico upon his rctltement from the Presidency. He has for sovcral

has sacrificed his personal feelings In tho matter In order that tho period of

England and Japan
Protest to Chinese
Indon. Feb. 1. From Poking tho
correspondent of the Dally Times ca
bles that Great Britain and Japan, sup
ported by the United States, while not
onnoslng the completion of an enul
tnble agreement safeguarding Russia's
interests, energetically protest against
the Infringement of their rights In-'
volved In the agreement betweeu Chi
na nnd the Rnsso-Chlneso Bank, which
gives Russia exclusive mining and
other privileges. The signing of till
agreement has, therefore, been delay
ed. Germany has taken no action in
this matter, but, on tho coutraty has
given many indications of approval of
Russia's policy, which would turnlsh
her with an caBy pretext for obtaining
simllnr preferential rights throughout
New York. Jan. 30. Gilbert Parker,
the novelist nnd Member of Parlia
ment, sailed for England today on the
steamship St. Paul. Before Balling
Parker said he had not been quoted
correctly on his remarks at the Press
Club dinner January 18th.' While
making n speech on the Boer ar
Parker was answered by Representa
tive William Sulzer, who took excep
tion to Mr. Parker's remarks
"None of the papers quoted me cor
rectly." said Parker. "What I said
was, whether England was right or
wrong, whatever mlstako had been
made or whatever circumstances that
led up to the war one thing wan ship
the American flag, as well as the
English flng, wherever planted, meant
Justice, freedom and liberty fc r all '
Paiker said that one of the objects
of Ills lalt here was to look Into the
labor question for the British Pnilla-
ment, of which he Is a member "I
shall lepoit to Parliament on m le
turn." said Parker, "that In m opin
ion the American worklngman is more
enterprising than the English, that
the American worklngmau welcomes
machinery, while the English working
man has not come to that yet."
London, Jan, 30. Tho report of the
Parliamentary committee nppolnted tu

corruption made by Sir John Blundell
Maple (Conservative) against the
British officers who purchased army

Sir John for unjustifiable attacks on
the Integrity of the officers. At tho

finds that an excesslv
re price was paid,

whereby hoi so deale
to divide a profit of about 15 on
horses which cost the contractors U12
to J.17. The committee also ex
presses surprise at the fact that the
Government remount department took

African war had been In nrocreM, for
bIx months, thereby Involving tho
country In a loss of 12,000 on a sin

they would gladly welcome the next
step In the solution of this problem.
Newlands Now, as a permanent ar I
rangement, do you think they would
prefer simply commercial union with
this country, with tariff concessions
on both sides, or political union,
which, of course, would Involve com
plete commercial union?
Bliss That I do not know, sir. hut
I am satisfied that In this commeiclal
union of which you speak any enndi
tlon thnt the United Slates chose to
Impose would bo gladly accepted Any
modification In any law or creation of
a new law would be gladly met by
Cuba to secure that which Is all that
she nslis now, nnmely, close commer-
clnl relations with the United States,
Newlands Do you think their dls-
position as to political union with this
country nilses from these commercial
considerations, or do those other con
siderations enter Into It?
Illlss I think It all grows out of tho
Newlands It Is represented here
that thero Is Intense hostility upon
the part of Cubans to Americans.
