FRANCE IS NOT SATISFIED.
Siam Does Not Concede All
The French Minister to Leave
Gunboats Clearing: Their Decks for
Extreme Bfeunpei to Be Adopted to
Bring the Siamese Government
to Terms—War Hue ins
By the Associated Vtfiu.
Paris. July 2§.—At midnight it is
stated Siam's reply to France's ultima
tum is considered unsatisfactory, and
tbe French irnnis&er resident will pro
bably leave Bangkok on Wednesday to
go aboard a cruiser. The refusal of the
French minister of foreign affairs to give
Siam an extension of time is ascribed to
his desire to force Siam's band and pre

Tbe Siamese government proposes,,
without, however, making it a condi
tion, the appointment of a mixed com
mission to inquire into the question of
damages and the amount of money in
demnities mentioned in tbe French de
mand. The Siamese government will
immediately deposit 3,000,000 francs to
cover the amount of indemnification
designated above. The king, however,
has reason to believe that after proper
inquiry this sum will be found to exceed
the amount of indemnities- claimable of
justice by, tbe French government.
The reply closes by saying the Siam
ese government ie confident that in ac
ceding to the demands of the French
government in this manner it has given
proof of its sincere desire.to maintain

islands of tbe Mekong river." His
majesty ever has been ready to abandon
all the territories over which the exist
ence of these rights should have been
proved,, and five months ago proposed to
submit all the contested points to inter
national arbitration.. Now he con
sents to the delimitation of the
frontiers between Siam and Cam
bodia. All of the territory on
tbe left bank of the Mekong- river,
south of a line drawn from the most
northerly of the Siamese military posts
recently occupied by the French-Ana
mese troops, to another point sitaated in
the same latitude—that is on the 18th
degree north latitude—will be regarded
as Anamite and Cambodian territory;

the neighboring states, as far as the

territory, and the nse of the islands in

The king deplores the losses expe
rienced by both sides in connection with
, the Heng Kien and Khainmon incidents,
as well as the regretable collison at the
mouth of the Weinam river. The Bang,

The claims made by French subjects

actio.is of Siamese officials, are con

The Siamese warships are anchored one

ARREST OF A NOTED EUROPEAN
CROOK IN GOTHAM.
One ot His Victims In Marseilles Fol
lowed Him to Country and
ln Bringing 01m
New yoKK, July 23.—Juan Andreoni,
alias Joan Daodati, alias Giovani Caval
ero,' said to be one of tbe most noted
safe-crackers and all-round thieves in
Europe, was arrested here last evening.
Over a year ago he succeeded in .gaining
the confidence .of Mnriua Ms'aj'; auri
mm acirie in jiJanieTUes,
..■ innce, passing himself off as a Spanish
artist. One day he disappeared, to-
gether witb 30,000 franca cash and a
large quantity of Marseilles city bonds.
This was s year ago last May, and tbe
most strenuous efforts of the French
police faired to locate him. He came to
this country as Giovanni Cavalero, and
lived in good style. He claimed to be
a stock-broker. In March be visited a
banking house to sell tbe stolen bonds.
Tbey bore Malnati's name, and, the
firm being BUBpicious, agreed to purchase
tbe bonds, paying $200 down and asking
a few days' time to look them up. Cav
alero went away, and the bankers insti
tuted an investigation, which speedily
brought ont the story. Tbe rightful
owner, Marius Malnati, came to this
country armed with the proper docu
ments to socure the thief, but Cavalero
evidently had been alarmed and never
returned to the banking house. Malnati
would not give up and, hiring apart
ments, determined to haunt tbe streets
in the hopes of finally catching his
man. Laat evening he came upon him
talking with a woman. Malnati
rushed up to Policeman McConnelt
and told his story. Unfortunately he had
none of the neceaaary papers with him
and the policeman could not make the
arrest, but sympathizing witb the
Frenchman's grief at the prospect of los
ing his man, McConnell suggested that
if Malnati wonld perpetrate a vigorous
assault upon Cavalero, he (the police
man) could run them both in over night.
The Frenchman jumped with delight
and rushing at Cavalero dealt him a
furious blow. Cavalero looked around
in surprise, and recognizing his victim,
gave a yell and fled into the basement
of a hotel near by. Malnati was not to
beaten, however, and dragged him baak
to the Btreet pounding him vigorously.
McConnell then arrested both and when
arraigned before Justice Hogan thie
morning and the facts related, Malnati
was released and Cavalero held for ex
amination and to give Malnati time to
put the matter in proper form.

KANSAS MINERS' TROUBLE
The Strikers Incited to Deeds
Their Leader Uses Incendiary
Idle Miners from Colorado to Fill
SUlver Resolutions Adopted at Bntte,
Mont.—Ex-Senator Blair Deliv
er* an Antl-Chlneae
By the Associated Press.
Wsib City, Kan., July 23.—The Sab
bath passed quietly in this district.
The mine owners have decided not to
accept the protection of the deputy
sheriffs offered by Sheriff Arnold, who,
they say, recruited them from the ranks
of the strikers. Tbe owners are arming
their own men.
President Walters of the Miners' asso
ciation, who just got back from Missouri
laat night, addressed a big mass meet-
ing of strikers, praising them for the
work they did at the pit where the riot
occurred. He regretted that he was ab
sent at the time, for he would have been
glad to bave led the men to the conflict.
He urged them to keep on going to the
pit and talking to the men.
"Remember," said be, "I do not urge
violence. Let the women go first, but
let the men follow to see that they are
not insulted by scabs and blacklegs.
Don't be afraid. The only charge upon
which you can be arrested is
that of trespass, and that does
not amount to anything. The only way
to win this strike is to win
it—and -you know what that means. If
we catch scabs out after dark and give
them a stood thrashing what can be
done? They cannot call out the troops
These remarks by President Walters
were loudly cheered. They have, how
ever, created uneasy feeling in other
circles, and the mine owners fear
violence will increase from now
on. It is understood hun

of work in Colorado by the closing of

A White Metal Macs Meeting at Bntte,
Butte, Mont., July 23.—A large maea
meeting in tbe interest of silver wai
held here last night, leading citizens
from different parts of the state partici
pating. The meeting was addressed by
Hon. W. A. Clark, ex-Senator Sanders,
ex-Congressman Maginnis, Hon. Lee
Mantle, recently appointed United
States senator, and others. Much en
thusiasm was manifested and a very
lengthy address to tbe people of the
country, formulated by the Free Coin
age association in the afternoon, was
unanimously adopted. Its arguments
are in line with those of the address re
cently adopted by the Colorado silver
It rehearses the various arguments in
favor of silver and dwells on the disas
trous effects its complete overthrow will
have on the western states and terri
tories, directly and indirectly. The
Claim that the operation of the Sherman
act or the foreign fear of free coinage is
responsible for the recent tremendous
outflow of gold is vigorously com batted
and the assertion made that it is due
solely and only to the fact that the
balance of trade has been enormously
against us, and owing to this the gold
would have gone just the same if there
been no silver law in existence.
With regard to the cost of producing
silver the address asserts flatly that
every ounce of silver produced in the
United States costs morn than $1.29 per
The Sherman iaw, it concedes, is
wrong in principle, because it degrades
silver into a more commodity to be buf
feted about by unprincipled speculators.
At the same true the treasury notes
issued under its provisions have been of
inestimable benefit by increasing the
circulation at a critical time and thus
preventing disaster. To repeal this law
unconditionally would be to destroy
silver forever and play directly into the
hands of the advocates of a
single gold standard and contracted
currency. It would bethe cruel
est blow ever etruQk at the
debtor clasß, for it would enormously
increase the purchasing power of gold
and correspondingly lower the value of
all products, and of every form of prop
The Sherman law was never favored
by the advocates of free silver coinage,
says the address, but bad as it is, it is
now all that remains between the desire
of tbe gold standard men and tbe con
summation of their selfish ends, and
must be retained in the interest of the
common people until something better
is conceded in its stead.
AN ANTI-CHINESE SPEECH.
Ex-Senator Blair Take* a Fling at the
Abbury Park, N. J., July 23.—Ex-
United States Senator Blair ol New
Hampshire, appointed as minister to
China, and who was repudiated by that
government, delivered an address at tbe
national services, at the Fifth-avenue
auditorium thie afternoon, before a vast
aßeembly. Hia theme was the true rela-
Aj — ~' —» -♦♦'«■» tha other great nc -
tiops of the earth, and he dwelt with
particular force on the question of Chi
nese immigration. He asked: "What
are we to do with the great and pressing
problem of immigration ? Is it our duty
to admit them indiscriminately?"
In referring to the Mongolian, he said:
"Had it been permitted, 20,000,000 Mon
golians would now be occupying tbe
western portion of tbe country."
Further on he said: "Tbey come to
stay and to debauch the moral influ
ences that now exist," and cited the
fact that there was a population of 15,000
living in New York who were sapping
the life blood of the American laborer.
He said : "Tbey can live on 20 cents a
day where it takes $2 to support Ameri
He continued in this strain and urged
self-preservation by shutting out the
Mongolians. He cited the treaties with
China as mistakes, as the advantages
were all on the side of the Chinaman,
and claimed that the acts of 1888 and
1802 did not go far enough in dealing
with the dangerous people. He as
serted that the foreign powers were
diplomatically trying to create
an antipathy between China and this
country for selfish commercial objectß,
and declared Great Britain was the

Anticipated Heavy Demand for Gold
London, July 23.—The conviction that
gold will be in heavy demand during
the autumn months, especially for the
United States, has stiffened discounts in
the last week and the rate has re
mained steady at \% for three months.
Money has been plentiful, and it bas
been difficult to find borrowers at % orl

in good demand in several quarters and
inquiries were made in bebali of several

A panic was narrowly averted in the
Palmer House early tbis morning by
fire in the hotel laundry in tbe base

It came from a fire started in a cafe in

A MISLEADING report.
The International Trnst Company or
Colorado Is All Might.
Denver, July 23.—1n a dispatch from
here last night it was said that at the
request of the General Electric company
Judge Hallet had appointed a receiver
for the Pueblo City Railway company
and the International Trust company,
with liabilities of $7,000,000. So far as
this concerns the International Trust
company the statement is erroneous,
without foundation and calculated to do
them great injury. The simple faete
are that the General Electric company,
holders of the first mortgage bonds of
tbe Pueblo City Railway company,
brought suit for a receiver. The Inter
national Trust company, as trustee un
der the second mortgage, was made a
formal party defendant to the suit. It
had abeolutely only a formal connection
with the suit. Tbe International Truet
company is one of the strongest and
soundest institutions in the state.
