HE OBJECTS TO MEDIATION
Declares tl.e" Tender of Good Of-
. fices Sudors or Complicity in the
Hebellioti Churges Arrogance aiiil
liiMilei.ie in the Attitude of Tills
and Preceding Administration.
"From the very beginning ot the war
the American Coiormnent liis disparaged
the principle ot non-inlen tuition by con
tinuously offering its 'cordial mcdfci'lon
between the ma jetty ot Spain and its re"
bellious subjects, mediation winch we coall
not possibly accept without a ie.il lessen
ing ot our power and a grievous blot
on our honor," (-ays Emilio Castelar, in
La Publicidad, ot Barcelona. "Whenever
Olney or Cleveland prevented, with more
or less ability, their unreadable scheme
ot friciull mediation it lias come to me
that Ameiica, by thcbc very ill-consldorod
offers, was confessing complicity in the
Cuban insurrection, and was, hutnmiy
speaking, promising that which could not
be carried out.
"The iiiburgents belong to the tribe or
political irreconciiables who do not give
their arms to Le twisted, and who will
not admit any bolution other than the one
they have inscribed upon tl.cir lebcllious
banners, and Tor -wbicii Uiey are up in
arms, contraiy to all laws divine nd
human, and against all principles ot mo
rality and right. A great general like
Espartero may subdue the uncompromising
Carllsts with offers of lanlc and fceu'.'iits
which he liimseU can bestow or the Held
or battle. ' Another general sucli as
Martite: Campos may make peace, as at
Zanyon, imposing conditions at the point
or a victorious sword, but foreign govern
ments, Tar turn the center of operations,
without promises to make or benefits to
bestow, except in the name or the very
state and country which they are insult
ingwith their interventions, are kno.vingly
lacking in good faith. Such governments,
however powerful they be, surrer from
delusions it thej believe it possible to
mediaU- between an irresolute covl of
soulless lebels and the regular go em
inent of a pool le which believes itself lord
and arbiter ot its own destiny.
"We imagined, and with reason, that
upon the assumptijn of power by the Re
publicans, consequent upon the diction
of a new President. America would delist
from its foolish attempts, leaving it to
us, the Spaniards, to arrange, as Hod
might give us to understand, our mutual
difference and terminate our civil wars.
But the tremendous blunder bad assumed
among Americans so general a charac
ter, Fticb dangerous universality, that
hardly had the new President taken the
oath. of oflice before he seut to is an
ambassador with hiblructlons .to demand
from us an account ot the condition
ot ourci 11 war and to promi; us a f riei 11 y
settlement; accounts and settlements which
appearec to us gross Jusolence for wich
there is no pretext in international right
and which r admitted or sanctioned by us
would relegate us to tint barbarous i re
when might was rlRht and the rnot 4io Aer
ful states were accustomed to disregard
the free eilLItiPK nailed iiutionc. mel lo
impose upon them their codes and !omis
ot gox-et anient without having to render
account to anyone in this world, rnless to
a still greater power: of the use they n.jde
ot lliosj prerogatives which are pro
foundly congenital to their existence and
"The new ambassadorcamc this summer
to San SabaMian, and, after complying
with the traditional forms, had a business
Interview with the Duke of Tetuati. it is
certain thut this necessary interview in
troduced into our policy grave complica
tions and that it, temporarily but serious
ly, injured our credit. Without its tving
known whence or how it originated, tbe
lingular and incredible statement becimc
current and was received as fact that the
new ambassador had presented an ulti
matum to the Spanish government, de
manding from it that the war le kittled
in the month of Octolwr, if it did not
desire the troublesome interference of the
United States in its private affaiis.
"I never believed in the existence ot
this 'ultimatum,' because, or I know
little ol my fellow-citizens, no member of
the mmifiry would have heaTd such im
pertinence without rising and placing ris
passports in the hands of this most a rrogvit
ambassador, bo that he might not again
make an attack upon our independence or
again attempt our honor. In effect, tie
note never had the character attributed
to it by the international telegraph; but it
must be noted that the pretense was not
abandoned, it being desired with it to
point out in a diplomatic way that, if
buoh extreme measures were not im
mediately contemplated, they might speedi
ly become necessary and suddenly enforced.
'The note, far from being menacing ulti
matum, a scheme of intervention, or thear
rogance or a gieat power, is a series of cold
explanations covering the results of the
Cuban war to the Saxon Republic. The
ambassador complained tliat Yankee ship
ping and Yankee commerce were being in
jured bj the civil warfare in the Antilles:
but to this all the nations of the earth
find themselves continuously exposed.
'The insurrections nearly continuous in
Ireland during tha wholeorthecurrentcen
tury, the conflicts between Italy and Aus
tria, the labor which the unification and
reconstn ctlon or the Gciman empire have
required, the disputes among the Helvetic
cantons, the wrangling of Holland with
Belgium, the state of permanent revolution
which, during so lonca time, has heldSpam
and Fir nee, have all resulted in detriment
to European commerce, but European com
merce has nevei, because of the result, had
the stupid pretension to claim that the re
spective states should by intervention,
.direst or indirect, arrange disputes which
did not concern them.
"And the claims of America and tl.e
complaints of America and the troibles
of Amcrio: are the more scandalous be
cause f.om there comes the help which
enables the Cubans to thrive. Great sub
ecriptlor. lists for their benefit areopen2d;
the suicidal temerity or the rebels is en
couraged; public enrollments, to interfere
In our irtcrnal quarrels, are contrived;
piratical expeditions to sweep labor and
commerce from yonder seas are contim.iHy
armed, and the foolish hope is kept alive
that the colony will be able to break
the ties that bind her to the mother
country; ties which God himself united
in space and Hint, and which God alone
would he able to break, vanquishing Willi
the tempest or his celestial wrath the
invincible Spanish nation.
"After Insisting that the continuance of
the Cuban war Is seriously detrimental to
the trade and commerce of the Saxons, the
2iew ambassador .proclaims in rnostcar-ist
and solemn fashion the resolution of tho
Yankee executive power to p?eserre not
alone courteous telatlons, but relations most
cordial and hlndly between Spain and
Ameiica. According to the note the
executive powei ot the great Republic will
never abandon the policy upheld by Cleve
land, who consistently regretted the decla
rations which a considerable part, at? v ell
ot the House of Repiexentatlvos nsif ihe
Senate, so foolishly attciUDted to imuou "
upon him. So long as the declii'iiion
of belligtiency, so often demanded jy the
American people, Jsdependent upon the
will of the Piesldent, he will perform
his International duties and will not recog
nize. -as belllf.'eient8 those whom he xuows
to be purely and simply rebels.
"But, behind all this, the note recalls
to mind that the Executive is not the
only power in America; that the parlia
mentarians have it in their hands to pajs
a joint resolution which.would become ob
ligatory, and to which a Presidential vetp
would not apply; that public opiniou in
America is clamoring loudly for thi ix
teiibiun tt all Cuba of the bame regiiiwn
a mental and moral condition capable or
carrying us with its impetus, if not to
impossible conflicts, to various difficulties
from the bosom of which armed Couiiict
might be engendered.

with persistent inverisimilltude to the
principle or intervention, cherishing the
idea, the most absurd that can be cherished
and one that in this world could only occur
to a lower order of intelligence and to -in
inferioi nature cherishing the ideanot
only ol intervention where the American
Government if not called, but of inter

tlon, will; the complicity of our country

"Governments may under the title ,f
friends intervene between two belligerent
nations, but under no pretext whatever
is it permissible for them to intervene be
tween a constituted government and frac
tious subjects up in arms against that gov
ernment. "What would the United Stales
say if we 'were to invite ourselves to as
blstthen in subduing their Indians?
"Tliisiitipudent Intervention of one people
in the aftalrs ol another cannot, by any
means, be admitttcd without the risk that
all the foundations of modern govern
ments may be shaken as by an earthquake,
and that the lopmosttowersof the proudest
States rnr.y f al! to the ground. Nobu Jy i e
cently lias verified this -is has the Ameri
can people; witness the positive reri-al to
tolerate the" empire in .Mexico, because it
had not been.set up by the national will,
but by foreign intervention. Where 'ould
wc stop if the peoples were permitted not
only to insolently intervene each ne in
ihe'al airs or its neighbors, but to jrihclse
-even the exercise ot the power and func
tions of their governments.'
"It iray, and it must, be claimed against
all these tendencies of -a national charac
ter that they may assume an inter'ia'ional
character, like those double or triple eiti
zunshiirs tolerated by the United State, and
full ot explosive bombs (as is every lie
and fraud), that may, because of the evil
withi . them, burst at any moment.
"But if a friendly government had the
right ti ask us how we rule in Cuba Ave
fchould have the right to 'inquire of that
governrrent why it tolerates In New i'oric
municipal scandals that dwarf all ..he
Panamas in the world; why it tolerates
the slaughter of men who have a right to
life, as in the case or so many Italians
subjects but a short time ago dead by
violence and without rc-sistunce. Why
does t tolerate the butchery of A us! rians
such as those committed in Anatolia
and in Armenia-thanks to the lawlessness
and cielty of a police without heart and
without conscience? Why does it tolerate
those lynching! which suspend nil laws,
mock ail trit.unals and apply the methods
or justice used by primitive man In .he
cursed days or the ordeal by battle and
or contiruous extermination? Why does
it tolerate the hunting or Indians, who in
cite packs of .hungry dogs and assassin ite
legions of ferocious mnrauders, as if the
world wrrc M-Ul wholly barbarous?
"All these things the Americans will
rectify, hut by their own will, by their
own conscience, in virtue and by the
operation of their inherent sovereignty,
about which we have no right to advise
nor evei the right to notice, much less
the light of scandalous and shameless
"We have abolished the traffic in sl-i ,-es,
closed the exchanges where the prices of
slaves were quoted, returned the sons who

STANDARD OIL OCTOPUS
Auotlier. Effort to Combat the
. Huge Monopoly.
Suit Filed in the United States
Court for the SoutheHrew
York District.-. '
New York, Dec. '25 A suit that has
been instituted in the United. States cir
cuit Court for the Southern dlstiicfc. of New
York, chargipg the Standard' Oil Company
with conspiracy to crush out all compel i
tion, brings ou in bold relief some of
the metl-ods adopted by that great or
ganlzation to brush aside every new op
ponent that appears in the field.
The suit was, brought by the United
States Pipe Line Compiny, ot rennsyl
vanii, and the defendants in the ctse,
bebldes the" Standard Oil Company, are
the Tidewater Pipe Company, National
Transit Company, Pennsylvania Railroad,
Erie Railroad, Pelawnre, Lackawanna and
Western Railroad, William Rockefeller, John
D. Rockefeller, William T. Warden, 11. i--Flagbr,
IT. Ii Rogers, John D. Archbold,
O. B. Jcnplngs, and W. H. Tilford. Bam
ages amounting to $GoS,4Gl are asked for,
"together wifh $10,000 as attorney's fees.
The men named are the trustees of the
Standard Oil Company, while the railroads
have an arrangement, it is alleged, with
the trust, whereby the receive a certain
profit on the oil delivered at tide water
by pipe line and also in the interior. These
railroads used to bj the chief carriers of the
Standard's output prior to the construc
tion of its pipe lines.
Tlie United States Pipe Line Company,
which is patronized by a considerable num
ber of independent oil refiners of Pennsyl
vania, and which has made n gallant fight
against the tiust, alleges that the con
spiracy p-feired to in Its complaint started
in 1882 and has continued in operation up
to the present time. It is alleged that It
has gone far to prevent corporations other
than the defendants fronibtoringand trans
porting oil and conducting operations in
cident to this business.
This has been dous, It Is alleged, bv suits
and injunctions and the publication of de
famatory articls regarding the plaiuiirf.
reflecting upon its management .nid finan
cial responsibility. It Irf nlo alleged tl at
the Standard lias Indirectly taken n casures
to destroy the plps or the plalnritf. and in
other ways sought to hinder its nuslu- ss.
Then follows a rather remaikable state
ment, to the efrect that flu St in nrd or
Its emissaries have sought to strengthen
themselves "by purchasing, or .i ising to
be purchased capital stock ot the pi lintlf f

solely for the purjwse and with the inten
tion of thereby obtaining the outr-il ; ml
management of the business and affairs or
the plaintiff in this action, ami -if i 'event
ing, restraining and excluding :iie nid
plaintifr from Its said business, trade and
commerce among the State.-; and among
foreign nations, and or thus securing a
monopoly in said buslnrs."'
The complaint then go.-s on to relate tint
the Staud.ud, In older to keep out 'vjiii
petltors, has frequently chartered all of
the available oil vessels, tegardless of the
number needed for Its own business; that
it has irtimldatcd merchants mid others
to prevent them frobi having relations
with competitors ol the tiust and has re
sorted to ttye practice of selling its prod
uct at ruinously low prices, regnidless if
the cost of producing it, with a icw to
making itself master of the situation
The complaint was filed some time ago,
but the fact of tha suit only became gener

The women's protest i in the shape of a
resolution signed by all the State officers

"Resolved, That wliile endeavoring to

clusion, based upon reliable evidence, Yiluu
tarily brought; to our attention, that the
conduct of Judge Enoch Foster, ot ihe su
preme judicial court of the State or .Maine,
has been, and in spite of the warnings or
friends and exulsion from the church still
continues to be, so grossly Immonl and
notoriously scandalous as to demand the
most emphatic public" reriionstraue rom
all thoughtful and responsible "itiw.TJ
against his reappointment, and that a. opy
of this resolution be tent to Gov. j'Mwers
as an expression of our convictio.i end
remonstrance in this matter."
Accompanying the resolution was a cer

home, showing that on September V, ISaG,

of misconduct he promised to ha.'o noth

IS PROSPERITY COMING?
Carroll D. Wright Believes Ih
dusfrial Condition Is Improving.
Can't 1 rove It With Slfttintles Ten
dency ol Wages 3s Upward and
Trend of Prices, Downward.
Carroll I). Wright, CommNslonerof Labor,
arter an examination Into the indu.strial
condition ot the country, renders an oplit
ion thai prosperity is returning. He con
fesses tl at it is Impracticable to obtain
complete statistics concerning the per
centage ol people employed and the rate
of their wages and possible earnings, but
he said yesterday to a reporter for The
Times that lie Is convinced that a general
industrial Improvement; has taken place In
the Iasr year.
Commissioner Wright said: "Wages at
present are not as high as In lSi'l, and le
may bj stveial years, before such rates are
reached again, but m the last year there
lias been a gratif ying Increase in many di
rections, and to a sufficient degree to
warrant, the statement that wages are
again on en upward trend. The ten
dency of wages is alwai't, upward, though
we do not always recogni.e It, and, con
versely, th trend ot prices is always do vn
ward. Iven it' wages Mand still and the
trend of prices is downward, real wages
would be higher.) This Is the general condition-
talcing decades as. they go. Oc
casionally a spurt of busmen will carry
wages to a high point, and a deprived
period bring them below the normal range.
'The Increase of wage, in the last few
nionthr. has ranged horn 5 to 5 per cut,
ami-the prcerttag of the employed is
great ei than this, owing ..to tru establish
ment oJTnew eiiterprJfefand'tl'ereop.Mii ir
of suspcruk'd works. Many iron manufi-torit-s
tun e Imjcii reopened and a consider iblc
number of new textile works established.
There lit ve been reductions of wages in tha
cotton mills of New England, but I do lot
think these low rates will pieu ail very lon.
A niotl encouraging feature of the present
Eituation is the quite general disposition
of manufatuiers to Increase wageb -.olun-tarily.
'The Department of Latvormakes nogr'.it
effort to keep up to date on statistics of: ny
kind, and I am therefore unable to funifh
any figure.-in detail. I am still eri!M;i;cd
