I The war office has not yet made pub
lic its estimate of the number of killed
and wounded and the missing of the
army defeated at Adowa but the gen
eral opinion is that the number killed
is about 5000 There are no means of
erbaining the number of men cap

The king has decided that the war

fused to carry out and great difficulties
are beng experienced in tho formation

Dispatches from the seat of war

invested Mutinies have also broken
out in the army in Africa especially
among the troops in Asmiria and Mas

Crispi is very strong
The African explorer Franzoi who
shad another interview with King
Humbert declares that General Bara

the disaster at Amba Aligahi
A scandalous fact he said is that
Count Antonelll carried on slave deal

prestige in the eyes of the natives Our
soldiers are brave but are badly led

Some Interesting RnsHinn Advice
V NEW YORK March 7A special to j
the Herald from St Petersburg says
The following solution of Italys posi
tion was given here by a personage
who has the warmest interest in that
country I have no hesitation in say
ing he remarked that the whole
world would approve at the present
moment if King Humbert were bold I
ly to state that his ministers had made I I
a mistake into which he himself waS I
drawn and that he has now decided I
in the interests of the country to evac
uate Abyssinia
The retirement of Signor Crispi
whose eighty years taken with these
Abyssinian disasters and the recent
loss of his grandson entitle him to the
utmost sympathy and has given an
easy opening for such a solution which
is the only practicable one visible
England and France in fact every
country has suffered disaster and has
accepted it with courage Italy must
do the same
The Novo ye Vremya draws attention
tion to the report that the Marquis Di
Rudini will probably now assume the
power and that he is known to be op
posed to a policy o adventure General
Baldissera also is of the opinion which
here is strongly expressed that Italy
must conclude the war in suite of the
kings desire
It Might Hiwe Been AVorse
ROME March 7The African crisis
assumed somewhatof a brighter aspect
this mornins as a result of the re
ceipt at the war office of a dispatch
from General Baldissera commander
of the Italian forces announcing that
the situation was not so desperate as
generally imagined He says that he
has 18000 troops at his disposal with
out counting the garrisons of forts and
reinforcements amounting to 12000 men
now on their way to Massowah But
the general urgently requests the im
mediate dispatch of ammunition and
supplies particularly artillery of
which he stands particularly in need
as about seventyfive pieces are believ
ed to have been captured by the Sho
ans Meanwhile everything possible is
being done to relieve the garrison at
Cassalia and Adigrat V

LONDON March 7Copyright 1896 by
the Associated PreasThe disaster suf
fered by the Italian troops in Africa has
caused a great sensation in Great Brit I
I ain and is thought likely to lead to a
fresh advance by the dervishes into upper
Egypt General Baratieris defeat must
have an enormous moral effect in Africa I
and diminish considerably prestige of
European troops of all nationalities
I The defeat at Adowa moreover serious
i ly affects Italys position in Europe politically
I ically and financially As to its bearing i
I on the dreibund a number of contradic
tory reports are in circulation On one
side Russia France and Germany are
I reported to have to come to some sort of
i an agreement upon their course in the
future on the other hand i is said to
I day that Austria is alarmed and is i urging
Germany to cement a better understanding

sition is likely to be correct but the accomplishment

The attention of the first lord of the

next week by Mr 1 J Bowles member
of parliament for Kings Lynn Conserva
tive to the statements in the Spanish
press that in the event of war between

privateers will prey upon American com

view of the complications and injuries
which British trade would suffer in such
an event or in the case of war between
Great Britain and a country which has
not acceded the declaration of Paris the
government would consider the whole

LIBERAL PARTY SPLIT
The young Radicals have broken out
Into revolt against the policy of the elder
leaders of their party The dual leader
ship between Lord Rosebery and Sir Wil
lam Harcourt Is the source of dispute
Mr Henry Labouchere and others have
long protested against the radical that
is tho term now generally applied to the
Liberals by the great Conservative ma
jority leader being in the house of
lords A majority of the Liberals al
though dissatisfied with the leadership
of Lr Rosebery believe that Sir Wil
lam Harcourt will not remain long in
parliament and therefore they are dis
I posed to choose as a leader either Mr
John Morley or Mr Henry Asqulth The
I Radicals however are also dissatisfied
with the machinery of the party especially
ially with the power of the whips fvho
they urge should be associated with the
advisory committee The radicals have
held a meeting in the houseof commons
I an have adopted a resolution embody
ling the grievances I has been sent
to Sir William Harcourt There is a pros
pect of a cleavage in the party unless
the leaders are conciliatory There will
be a meeting of the gold standard mem
bers of parliament next week to consider
I the necessary measures to be adopted in
order to oppose the motion to establish
an international bimetallic currency
which is to be debated on March 17 It
is understood that Sir Michael Hicks
Beach has announced his intention of op
posing the motion and the leading gold
standard members Intend to call upon
Sir Michael before the day of the debate
to induce him t change his mind
POPE UNFRIENDLY
According to the Daily News the at
titude of the pone towards the Anglican
orders will possibly be marked by a
change In a few weeks Cardinal
Vaughan and Canon Noyes have pro
duced a trenchant report dealing his
torically with the whole problem and It
convicts these orders under twenty heads
i d
ilM
ot heresy by negation or admission The
consequent invalidity of the situation b
tween the two churches thus becomes
serious and the < hope of ultimate papal
recognition of the Anglican orders seems
doomed to disappointment
The English press is elated at the so
called German plan to secure the ter
ritory Lourenzo Marfquez I appears that
when Portugal put > her foot down on
tho hearing of the proposed transfer of
property on Delagoa Bay from a Ger
man firm to the German government the
latter gave assurances that Germany
would not attempt such a step But according
cording to the English accounts of the
affair the German firm financed by the
Transvaal government had a distinct
understanding with Germany to turn over
the property to the government of Ger
many This move however now appears
to have been blocked and it Is said to
day that Portugal Is to increase the
strength of her garrison at Lourenzo
Marquez in order to accentuate her de
termination to maintain her position
OPPOSING A PENSION
An interesting discussion is promised in
the house of commons when the debate
on the army estimates Is in order Sir
H CampbellBannerman Liberal who
was secretary of state for war In the last
administration and who Is termed by
the Irish members the Scotch sandbag
will move to reduce the vote by ns
this amount being the special pension of
the Duke of Cambridge the late com
manderinchief of the forces and cousin
of the queen The first lord of the treas
ury Mr A J Balfour it is alleged re
cently gave an explicit assurance that
no such pension would be given and It
is openly suggested that the influence of
royalty has been brought to bear in or
der to alter Mr Balfour mind The gov
ernment will be questioned on the latter
wi
point and some interesting attacks and
parries are anticipated

DUPY DE LONE SPEAKS
Denies the Proof of the Statements
Made By Senators Sherman and
lorgnn
WASHINGTON March Minister
Dupuy de Lome of Spain tonight ac I
corded a representative of the Associ
ated Press an authorized interview
concerning the Spanish Cuban situa
tion with a special reference to recent
statements in congress during the con
sideration of the Cuban resolutions
sideraton
The minister said I read with the
deepest regret the statement made in
the senate by some of the most influ
ential senators in the United States
knowing the facts stated by them were
incorrect that the senators had been
misinformed by persons interested in
bringing a misunderstanding between
the two countries
In reference to a book which Senator
Sherman spoke of written bya Span
iard and from which the sen
ator derived some of the most
serious charges he made against
General Weyler although he had
not himself seen a copy of I
Senor de Lome said I have made an
investigation about that book I have
carefully read it and I see in I that
many horrors are discovered attribut
r i
ed both to the Spaniards and to the
rebels but in it the name of General I
Weyler is tot mentioned one single
time I have the book at the disposal
of anybody who would like to contro
vert my statement
In regard to Senator Morgans charge
from 1S6S to 187S 13600 Cubans were
RUed in battle and 43500 prisoners
taken and put to death Senor de
Lome shows that it is based on the re
port of General Sickles when minister
to Spain who quoted from the Impar
cial a semiofficial paper as follows
From the beginning of hostilities in
Cuba 13600 Insurgents have been 1 < d
in battle and 43500 taken prisoner
The minister added I is bdjieved
that all prisoners of war taken are shot
or garroted C
Referring to an alleged interview
intdview
with General Weyler declaring his in
tention of exterminating flllbusterers
which quoted Senator
was by Lodge
Senor de Lome pronounces it a fraud
WOflAN SUFFRAGE
Miss Anthony Will Stump California
In Its Behalf
TOPEKA Kan March 7Susan B
Anthony passed through Topeka today
on her way to California to advocate
the cause of woman suffrage She
said she had hoped the women of Cal
ifornia would profit by the experience
of the women of Kansas in 1S94 and
keep party politics out of their cam
paign
In their work among the Democrats
the women expect to have the active
support of Governor Budd who Is an I
advocate It is
of womans suffrage I I
not expected that any political party
wH put out a declaration of principles
until after the national conventions
shall have been held and therefore
the women will have ample time for
a campaigp of education I is propos
ed to circulate petitions asking the
party conventions to endorse woman I
suffrage and Miss Anthony believes
that the names of 250000 or 300000 men I
and women of the state can be secured
Fully half of these will be the names I
of men and as the total vote of the
state is only about a quarter of a
million the politicians will hardly ig
nore a petition signed by onehalf of
the entire voting population
Miss Anthony will be joined in a
short time by Miss Yates and Anna
Shaw who will speak in every county I
in the state I is proposed to hold
a twodays convention in every one of
the fiftyseven counties Miss Anthony
will speak in San Diego Los Angeles
and other large towns in the state fin
ally establishing herself in San Fran
cisco where she will be the guest of
Mrs A A Sargent the widow of the

ster Gazette this afternoon referring
to Venezyalan bluebook says
The first point to be mad clear in
the blue book is nothing more than
our case We must not forget that
we are open to answers We welcome
the apparent strength of our case not
because we imagine we core on every
point but because there is so much
room to give and take
The S1 James Gazette says on the
same subject
I is a very forcible statement of a
very strong case What interests us
is whether the American commission
will pay full attention to our state
ment and having done so will decide
purely on the evidence without al
lowing itself to be in any degree Influ
enced by other considerations We
must hope i will We cannot recog
I nize the commission but we know its
finding will have weight in America
