Am Australasian Empire.
"The sentiment of an Australasian
empire is spreading," said A. B. Rogers,
a barrister from Sydney, New South
Wales, at the Grand Pacific fast evening.
"Encouraged by their rapid advance in
population and wealth, the colonists
feel that they should divide the rule of
the Pacific with the United States.
Some excitement has been caused lately
by the step taken by the colonies
for the acquisition of a navy ex
clusively for colonial purposes. The
ships will be built in England and the
money raised in Australia. It is now
almost assured that inter-colonial free
trade and union will 'be established.
Then there will be another country
not unlike the United States. The Aus
tralian colonies have been studying the
question of defense foranumberof years.
They are a great distance from the
mother country and are exposed to at
tack in case of England's trouble with
other powers. With a navy at its
command Australia could forcibly object
to encroachment in Polynesia. While
the people of Australia like to see- Eng
lish and Americans settle in Ocean icte
they recognize that there is no room for
the great influx of French and Germans.
The idea of Australasian union includes,
besides the continent of Australia, Tas
mania, New Zealand, New Guinea and
the Fijis. With this view the estab
lishment of the French in New Cale
donia is an encroachment upon what is
called Australian territory. Australia
does not aspire to extend its influence
over all the Pacific ocean, but its people
want independent power, with enough
force to maintain its rights."—[New

THE CAUSE OF THE REVOLT IN SAN
It Was President Menendez's Vaulting
Ambition That Caused His Death—Ex
iles Invited to Return.
New York, July 2.—The Tribune says:
The recent occurrences in San Salvador
were the outcome of a far-reaching con
spiracy. Presidents Menendez of San
Salvador, Bogran of Honduras, and Ba
rillas of Guatemala, entered into an
agreement that when the unification
of the Central America states
was effected, they would rotate
,in office, each having a year at a time .
If Costa Rica and Nicaragua refused to
come into the combine they were to be
subdued by force by the other three
countries. The people were not in sym
pathy with this scheme, and the Salva
dorians effected relief by revolt. The
Erovisional government of San Salvador
as appealed to Mexico for aid, and
Zaldivar and Moran have been invited
to return to the country.

he has received a telegram from his gov
