WASHINGTON, D. C, April 2.— From
I unofficial advices reaching Washington
the general terms of the agreement signed
yesterday by which war between Mexico
and Guatemala was avoided are substan
tially known. Mexico's demand was in the
form of an ultimatum sent by Secretary
Mariscal November 27, embracing the fol
lowing points: y. *>y
First— Mexico asked satisfaction for in
juries received by the invasion of her ter
ritory and for vexations which foreigners
end Mexicans cutting wood in the forests
of Aqua Aral, Egypt, San Nicholas and
San Pedro and Mexican residents of Ayulta
had experienced. v -vy
Second— Mexico also demanded pecuni
ary indemnity for damages sustained.;.
Third— Mexico also demanded indemnity
for the expenses of the mobilization of her
troops arid . situating authorities and em
. ployes in suitable places for public security
. on the.frontier.
.-'Fourths-Mexico asked that the labors of
the Boundary Commission, in accordance
•with -'.the treaty of ISB2, be speedily con
. eluded, said treaty not being open to dis-
:cussionV- - ; • 7 ' :'777 -■ -'.-''
■:• . 'understood that $2,000,000 was the
.amount of indemnity demanded by Me**- 1
ico. Also that .she insisted on Guatemala
dismissing her Surveyor-General, who had
taken part in locating her boundary. ■-.. y
"• On January 12 Guatemala answered the
ultimatum* .The" answer was pacific in
tone,, .but' did not concede Mexico's right to
••the territory designated in the ultimatum,
•northe; right of a fixed cash indemnity.
.-Theifinal negotiations are a compromise'
•between :the ultimatum and the reply.- It
is believed that Mexico has agreed to arbi
; trate amount of cash indemnity, instead.
- of.exacting the $-2,000,000 first claimed. .y
"■' . -Senior Romero, the Mexican Minister, has
been kept advised of the negotiations, but
neither ;he nor Senor Arriga* the : Guate'-.
:'maiah Minister, are yet in position to make
•'public the exact terms on which ' the war
.was averted. President Diaz has an
pounced that the terms will be communis
•Cate'd- to' Congress later. The peace agree
merit is. regarded as of far-reaching
importance to the Central American States,
. which expected in the last six months to
;be- plunged into a bloody struggle.

preparing for the conflict and calculations

GRESHAM NOT TO RESIGN.
\ • Positive Denial of a Report of
, the. Secretary's Retire- ■
Although In Bad Health He Will
Complete ' His Term In the .7.y^'
_ Cabinet.; .*•;";■•
WASHINGTON, D. C:, April 2.— A vig
orous denial is made in administration
circles of the. story that. Secretary Gresham
is about to resign. The ; Secretary: himself
will not be interviewed, not Caring to dig
nify the. report, by a denial. It is a fact
that the Secretary has . been- . in ill health
for some -' time, and the recent attack of
neuralgia of trie ; stomach •, left him much
o • debilitated. -He has been unable; to secure
rest in Washington, owing to the frequency .
with which, delicate. and : ' embarrassing
diplomatic questions : have been .forced/
• upon him, and it is probable he will yield.:
to the solicitations of his ifairiily. . and
friends so. far as to take a short leave of
absence arid", go to his . home in Indiana,
and • perhaps • stop for a'• short ■ time in
Chicago. • - ■■; .--.
Later in the day it was possible to; secure:
a -most positive denial of' the story that
\ Secretary - Greshain : intends "to resign, the
authority- being a Cabinet officer, whose
relations with the Secretary - are Of . such a
nature as to -make' him perfectly competent
to make this denial. It is also learned that
Secretary Gresham has just made arrange
ment for the extension . of another year of;
his lease of his -rooms' at the Arlington j;
' now occupied by him, which, may certainly
be taken as. an evidence of his intention to
. remain in Washington. - '•

NOT -AN HONORABLE DISCHARGE.
An' Interesting Ruling Relating to a
;, WASHINGTON, D. C, April 2.—Assist
ant Secretary Reynolds of the Interior De
partment has affirmed the decision of the
Commissioner of Pensions in the case of
Anguine Coney, widow of John G. Coney.
The application was made under the act of
December 1890, which provided for the
pensioning of an officer or an enlisted man
who had served ninety days in the army
or navy and was honorably discharged. 1
.Coney served as an engineer on a vessel in
the Mississippi marine brigade. The Assist
ant Secretary holds that a discharge by
the commissioner-general of the . brigade
does not constitute an honorable discharge
as contemplated in the act.

J ALTONA, Prussia, April 2.— 'youth

Count yon Kotz was the royal -court

His arrest in June, 1894, was the result
of. four years of police investigation. Dur
ing that period members' of the highest
German aristocracy' were in ' receipt' of
anonymous letters and postal cards, mak
ing vile personal accusations against them,
their', relatives or friends. In : a num
ber of cases - irreparable wrong was done.
Some of the recipients of the slanderous
missives, placed them in the hands of the
police and as a result Count yon Kotz was
arrested.;.- . '.'••'
, He protested his ; . innocence,' although,
the proof against him was seemingly Over
whelming. .After his arrest it "was thought
that the era of the anonymous letters had
been brought to a closed --.; '• • '-.
It was not, however, and letters making
.ail sorts of outrageous charges continued
to be received as before. These last-men
tioned letters were in the same handwriting
as the previous ones, and further inquiries
resulted, in Yon Kotz's innocence being
i legally established, and on March i last he
was acquitted of all the charges a mili
