it consistently can,

csu do nothing except to request Laird
Kimberly not to force a settlement of
tbo indemnity within the next tweuty
four hours, but lo permit a sufficient
time to elapse so thut Nicaragua may I
uot be put in the position of being
compelled 10 pay the ".-mart money"
at the cannon's mouth, If the liritish
Foreign tMlico shall sgree to this ths
incident will probably bo olosed within
the next fortuight by a compliauoe on
Ihe pun ol Nicaragua with Ureat lint
Those who understand the sentiment
of the Niearagitao people respecting
this matter predict that Nicaragua will
uot pay the indemnity unless Great
liritain pinnies u mure conciliatory
course. The disposition of President
Kclaya ami his advisors ia strongly
against paying tho mono*/ uuder com
