THE BLOCKADE STILL ON.
A Siamese Mail Steamer
Seized by the French.
The Terms of Settlement Not
England Seemingly Getting the
Beat of the Negotiations.
Franco Virtually Doing John Ball's
Bidding-—A French Cabinet Crisis
Threatened ac the Remit
of the Dlfncaltjr.
By the Associated Press.
Banqcock, July 30.—While the gov
ernment of Siam accepted without re
servations France's ultimatim, it re
ceived previously assurances that the
kingdom wonld not be dismembered
nntil after consideration by all the pow
ers concerned of France's demand for
territory between tbe eighteenth and
twenty-third parallels. The blockade
is still maintained. British and Ger
man warships remain at ths Menam bar,
inside tbe blockade limits. British gov
ernment mail is allowed to pass, but
mercantile correspondence with Siam
ese firms is cut off. Tbe French seized
the Siamese mail steamer Chantaboom
and the Hong Kong steamer Phraohula.
A Cabinet Crisis Over the Siamese Set
Paris, July 30.—A meeting of the
ministers to consider Siam's acceptance
of France's ultimatum was held at the
Elysee this evening, President Carnot
presiding. After deciding to accept Si
am's concession, the ministers
deferred definite action until
measures should have been
taken to guarantee Siam's fulfillment of
tbe French demands. They took steps,
hejvever, to inform Pavie. the French
minister resident, now at Koh-si-Cbang,
of Siam's acceptance of tbe ultimatum
and the consequent action today of tbe
council. Another meeting for the dis
cussion of the steps necessary in settling
the boundary question between France
and Great Britain will be held Tuesday.
Despite official denials, reDorte of
cabinet dissensions multiply. It is Baid
that last Wednesday Under Secretary
Delcasse proposed a treaty with Siam
on the line of France's policy toward
Madagascar, a protectorate to be estab
lished and all of Siam's relations with
other states settled through the French
Develle replied hotly that such a pro
posal was not to be considered by tho
present ministry. He himself had
pledged the government publickly to
respect Siam's independence, and rather
than violate his pledge he would re
Delcasse proposed the occupation of
Angkor and Battambang, as an al
Develle refused to agree to this, hold
ing that he wonld only consent to a
Next day Delcasse informed Pre
mier Dupuy of his intention to resign
because he was convinced that a pacific
blockade was inadequate. The differ
ences between himself and Develle,
however, were partially adjusted, bnt
he is known to be dissatisfied and on the
point of resigning.
These reports have induced the ad
vanced radical newspapers to attack
Develle on the grovnd tbat he has
knnckled under to Great Britain. What
ever effect these attacks may have on
domestic politics, it is reasonably cer
tain tbey will not interfere with the set
tlement of tbe Siamese' question virtu
ally within tbe limits determined by
Only One Point That She Inslata France
New York, July 30.—The World's
Paris correspondent learned today from
the British embassy there tbat in the
negotiations over the Siamese affair the
British government is insisting that
France shall not annex the territory
north of the eighteenth parallel of lat
itude ceded to Spain on condition that
it should never be conced
ed to any other government.
There is no doubt at the embaeey that
France will give way sooner or later, the
British case being so clear to British
eyes. Thia point, so far as the knowl
edge of the embassy goes, is tbe only
one which England has made the sub
ject of intervention.
Kngland a Potential factor In the Siam
London, July 30.—The various papers
comment on the Siam affair according to
their attitude toward the government.
The Graphic says: On the surface it
looks as if Great Britain had
received a check to her pres
tige in only arranging so ac
effecntally to safeguard British commer
cial interests. Now a protectorate over
the whole of Siam west of the Mekong
is necessary to restore this prestige.
Anything short of this will be a humil
iating defeat for England.
The Times has no leader on the sub
ject. Its Bangkok-correspondent tele
graphs : When tbe French seized the
Siamese mail steamer Chantabocn, the
native crew were unaware of the block
ade. They were panic-stricken and de
serted the ship. Thereupon the French
boarded her and run her aground. Tbe
seizure is regarded as illegal.
The Paris correspondent of the Post
telegraphs that the strongest outside in
fluence is being brought to bear on
Develle by the principal members of
tbe Golonial party, especially Etienne,
Delcasse and Delancle, to make him
adopt a more hostile attitude towards
the English claims than he is personally
inclined to adopt. Tbey ere turloas bs
cause a French protectorate bas not
been created in Siam.
Tbe Daily News understands that a
meeting of the cabinet will be held
Monday to consider the questions aris
ing from the Siamese difficulties.
"Siam's acceptance," says the News,
"by no means settles tbe difficulty be
tween France and this country."
After commenting on Great Britain's
refusal to recognize the blockade the
News continues: "Within the 48 hours
which ended at midnight yesterday, the
whole question of the blockade and tbe
presence of British vessels at Bangkok
has assumed the gravest aspect."
FIGHTING IN ARGENTINE.
A Revolutionary Uprising- In Several
Buenos Ayres, July 30.—The radicals
have begun a revolutionary movement
in the provinces of Buenos Ayres and
Banta Fs, and fighting was going on in
a number of towns in tbe first named
province today. According to advices
so far received the insurgents seem to
be victorions. Dr. Alem, the radical
leader, has issued a manifesto declaring
that tbe time has come for the people
to rise and recover their rights
and liberties. Dispatches from
San Luis say an uprising took place
there Saturday. The government has
asked congress to proclaim a stale of
siege in these three provinces. General
Costa has notified tbe government tbat
the radicals' forces were defeated at Ro
sario with a loss of sixty killed and
wonnded. The governor and members
of the ministry of San Luis are impris
oned by tbe radicals, who have estab
lished a government of their own.
HOKE SMITH HANGED
IN EFFIGY BT A MOB OF ENRAGED
Indignation at Rome, Ohio, Over tho
Suspension of an Old Veteran's
Pension—The Old Man
a Raving Maniac.
Portsmouth, 0., July 30.— Secretary
Hoke Smith was banged in effigy by the
enraged citizens of Rome, a little town
of Adams county, last nigbt. A number
"f pensions have been suspended there,
creating much 111-feeling, but the climax
was reached when tbe pension of J. L.
Reed, a veteran of the Eleventh Illinois
cavalry, aged 63, was stopped. Reed
served four years and five months, and
his pension was hia sole support. When
he received news of the suspension he
became a ravine maniac. The aroused
citizens, led by John Fnrnier, a Demo
crat, banged Smith in effigy in the pres
ence of over 1000 people, irrespective of
Tilt COAST nCBVET.
None Bnt Democrats to Bs Placed In
Washington, July 30.— The Post says:
A radical reorganization of the coast
survey is contemplated by Secretary
Carlisle. Some changes may require
congressional action. Tbe work of re
form will begin by tbe usual method of

Washington, July 30. —A dispatch

Speaker Crisp and Others Discus*
The Repeal or the Sherman Law May
Not lie Effected Without the
Faaiaee of a Free Coin
By Ihe Associated Preis.
Washington, July ."o.—Speaker Crisp
arrived in the city thia evening. Speak
ing generally of the condition of affairs
in the south, the ex-speaker Bays there
is a feeling of distrust and the same
hard times that characterize the whole
country. Crisp hopes some way will be
speedily found by tbe bankers of the
cotton states to supply funds to get the
cotton crop to market. When asked
whether the distrust was due to the
existence of the Sherman law, Crisp re
plied that it was certainly due to the
want of public confidence, but exactly
what caused tbe condition he was not
prepared to say.
Crisp was not inclined to talk freely
oa tbe probability of the repeal of tbe
Sherman law, and does not say whether
be believes it will be repealed or not.
Crisp would not say how be stood
upon the proposition to repeal tbe law
and enact a substitute providing for tbe
free coinage of American silver at an in
creased ratio. It was only after a full
consideration of different propositions
tbat might be made that Crisp thought
a final result would be reached, but
what tbe result wonld be he would not
venture to predict.
While the speaker had given the sub
ject of tbe composition of the commit
tees more or less attention, he said be
probably would not announce them for
two weeks after congress began, for, in
tbe meantime, he desired to confer with
the members as to their wishes.
Crisp expects the president to bring
the tariff prominently before congress,
either coupled with the question of
finance or in a subsequent message bear
ing directly upon tbe subject. He looks
forward to a long and arduous session of
The Repeal of the Sherman Law a Fore
Washington, July 30. —Among the
congressmen who have arrived here so
far the opinion seems to be unanimous
that the Sherman law must be repealed,
but what shall follow is an unknown
Representative Geaity of California
said today he always bas been opposed
to tbe Sherman act; it is vicious and
time does not improve it. Of course
some subsequent legislation will be nec
essary, but he was not prepared to say
what it will be. He is satisfied, how
ever, that the Sherman law will go, and
in its stead we will have something of
benefit instead of harm. Geary added ;
that in place of the present tariff law !
the chances are that we will have one
new from top to bottom, with very radi
cal changes in schedules. This country,
he said, expects this.
Senator Quay of Pennsylvania also
thought the silver purchase clause of
tue Sherman act should be repealed.
SENATOR PUGH'S OPINION.
Most of the Democratic Senators Are
Friends of Sliver.
Saratoga, N. V., July 30.—Senator
Pugh, of Alabama, in an Interview on
the coming congress, says tbe uncondi
tional repeal of the Sherman law will
leave silver at the mercy of its enemies.
The majority of both houses are Demo
cratic and a fearful responsibility will
rest on those Democrats who aid in giv
ing the enemieß of silver all they want.
The majority of the Democratic sena
tors, he cays, cannot be influenced to
vote for the unconditional repeal of
the Sherman act.
SENATOR WOLCOTT'S VIEWS.
He Thinks Free Coinage Will Triumph
at the Special Session.
Chicago, July 30.—Senator Wolcott of
Colorado, who is here on his way to
Washington, expressed the opinion in
an interview today that free coinage
would triumph in the special session.
Tbe deplorable condition of affairs all
through the mining region of tbe west
had strengthened tbe determination of
the silver people. Tbe Sherman bill, he
thinks, will not be repealed without a
