AN ENUL1SH CONFESSION.
Tl.p following ft itement from tin
columns of the Fiiiimciiil News of
London, England, conlains much
f(MMl for thought on the part of nil
" Practically every inny that
was subscri tied here toward the re
cent American loan litis lieen (jot
hack throutrh the expansion in the
cxp irts of woolens and worsteds
lint t he Unit il States has not con
fined her increased purchases to
those articles. Last month she
houfjht less mw wool than in Hcp
temlier, 1 HIM, but had to pay more
for it. She took more cotton pioi'os,
more iron, more alkali, mid more of
sundry articles which neel not bo
sjiecilled. In Home instances the
rapid urowth (,f j, preceding
months resulted in a slight check in
Septemlicr, hut in all these oases the
tlgnre of the nine months show a
hig advance in 1H1I4. On the .other
hand, we have imid n good deal less
for American whe:it, flour, hacon,
hams, cheese, tallow and cotton, to
mention only those nrticles in which
the contraction is most apparent
The fact that the Argentine Republic
heads the Unied States in rosxet
of maize is not without significant!.
Thus t'e trade balaneo iKitween the
States and this county is moving
rapidly against the former, and it
would require n large and regular
transference of wH-nrities from New
York to London to redress this ten
dency nntl restore the former post
Hon. And witli India, Argentina
and Austra'in keeping up uud even
improving their position as pur
veyors of wheat to this country,
with Argentina sending more us the
United States sends less tallow, it
will not lo easy for the Ameritms to
regain tneir old tooting in our
market. Last month India and
Argentina sent ns more who it than
the United States, and Russia, and
Roumania together also topped the
Americans figures. Those are nil
fa 'tors that must l borne in mind
in judging the outlook in the United
8'ates, and it is unfortunate that
they are ho consistently overlooked
in that country itself."
This is not tho testimony of
Ameiiean prottctionists. It is the
statement of a leading English
authority on financial subjects, and
a staunch advocate of free trade

WASIlt0TO, Deo. I). Tho president's
messnRO, atthmitted to congress at noon
today, la about equally divided between
the treatment of foreign mid flnanclnl
subjects. It Is a voluminous document,
oontalnlng a lieu t in,ilo0 wnrils, mid ills

Amtiiicen people ere now especially Inter-
estcH. The following extracts cover tho
me ft important matters regarding foreign
The customary onrdlnl rolntlons belwr i'n
this country nnd Franco hnvn been tindis-
titrbod, with the exception thnt n full ex
planntlon of the treatment of John L.
w slier hy the expetlltKumry military nn
thorltlns of Franco still remains to bo
Riven. , Mr. Waller, i- formerly United
states consul nt Tamntavo, remained In
Madn.gn.scnr nflor his term of oiliee expired
and was nppnrently successful In procur
ing business concessions from tho flovc.s
of grentnr or less vnltin. After tho occti
pillion of Tnmatnvo nnd thedeclan.tlon of
martini law by the French hewnsnrrested
neon Vnrlotis chnrges, nmoug them thnt
of onmmmilontlng military Information
to the enemies of France, was tried mid
convicted by a military tribunal nml sct-
Vencod vo V0 years Imprisonment.
' Following the course Justified by ahull-
dent precedents, this govornnient request
ed from thnt of Frnnce the recortl of the
proceedings of tho French tribunal which
resulted In Mr. Waller's condemnation.
This requast has been oompllcd with to
the extent of supplying a copy of thn olll
elnl record, from which appear tho consti
tution nnd orgmilntlon of thn court, tlio
chnrges ns fonniilnted, and thn general
course and result of tho trlnl, anil by
which It Is shown that tho accused was
tried In open court nnd wns defended by
counsel. Hot tho evidence adduced In
tipport of the chnrges which was not re
ceived by the French minister for foreign
affnlrs till the first week In October has
thus far been withheld, the French gov
ernment taking the ground that Its pro
duction In response to our demand would
establish a bad precedent. The efforts of
our emhnssndor to procure It, however,
though Impeded by recent changes In tho
rVoneli ministry, have not boon relaxed,
and It Is confidently expeotcd that some
satisfactory solution of tho matter will
shortly bo reached. Meanwhile It nppcars
that Mr. Waller's confinement has every
allevlntion which tho stnto of bis health
and all tho other circumstances of the
case demand or permit
The Venezuelan Dispute,
It being npparcnt that tho boundary
dispute between t.rent Jlrltalti nnd the re
public of Venezuela concerning the limits
of Ilrltlsh (Jtilnna wns approaching nn
ncuto stage, a deflulto statement of the
Interest and policy of tho l ulled Slates
as regards the controversy seemed to bo
required both on Its own account and in
view of lis relations with tho friendly
powers directly conccrnod. In July Inst,
therefore, a dispatch was addressed to our
embassador at London for coniniunieat ion
to the Ilrltlsh goverutueur, In which tho
attitude of the I lilted Hlati'S was fully
and distinctly set forth. Tho general con
clusions thoroin reached nnd forintinitFtl
are In substnnco thnt the traditional mid
established policy of this government is
firmly opposed to a forcible incrensu by
any Kuropean power of Its territorial pos
sessions on this continent ; thnt this policy
Is as well founded In principle ns it is
stmngly supported by iinincrourf pnro
dents; that as a consequence tho I'lilled
Htates Is bound to protest against tho en
largement of tho area of Ilritlsh (iuiiinn
In derogation of the rights and against
the will of Venezuoln; that, considi'rlng
tho disparity In strength of Great Drllalti
and Vone.uola, the territorial dispute be
tween them can bo reasonably settled only
by friendly nnd Impartial arbitration, nnd
thnt the resort to such arbitration should
Include the whole controversy and Is not
satisfied If uno of tho powers concerned is
permitted to draw an arbitrary line
through the territory in debato nml to de
clare that it will submit to arbitration
only the portion lying on one sldo of It.
In view of these conclusions, tho dispntch

large part of the eastern Interior of the

on the coast, liesldos dormiging the ooin
murclnl exchanges of the Island, of which
our oountry takes the predominant share,
tills flagrant condition of hostilities, by
arousing sontlmental synipnthyand Incit
ing advebturous support nmong our peo
ple, has entailed earnest effort on the part
of this government to enforce obedience
to our neutrality laws and to prevont the
territory of the United States from being
abused as vantage ground from which
to aid those in arms against Spanish sov
ereignty. Whatever may be the traditional sym
pathy of our countrymen as Individuals
with a people who seem to be struggling
for larger autonomy and grentor freedom,
deepened ns such sympathy naturally
must be In behalf of our neighbors, yet
the plain duty of their government Is to
observe In good faith the recognized obli
gations of International relationship. Tho
performance of this duty should not be
mado more dllllcult by a disregard on the
part oi our citizens of the obligations
growing out of their allegiance to their
oountry, which should restrain them from
violating as Individuals tho neutrality
which the nation of which tboy are mem
Deri Is bound to observe In Its relations to
friendly sovereign states.

tlieso gnns rninn or fur what nso they
are to bo pluccd in tho bands of Browne's

mystery. Some residents of the commu
nity believe that (Juptnin Cnlleu baa ko-
cuicd these rifles, nnd it is thought that
when the mountain recruits hnvn been
gnflioiently drilled, an effort will bo
mudo to tender their services tu tho
commander of tho insnrgent army in
Cuba. Ciillen has sent out a large num
ber of nicely engraved invitations to
pcivplowho might bo inclined to syinpn
thizo with tho Cuban cause, soliciting
contributions of money und firearms,
and some connection ismippoHod to exist
between this action on his part nnd
Browno's enlistment of men. To 1 he
mountaineers, who are nt this time of
the year idle and ready for any kind of
sport, the advontnro is doubly inviting,
and they seem to begetting a great deal
of fun ont of it.
Browne hns kept in correspondence
with many of the famous army that
mnrched into Washington in May of
1HU4 and has sent out to thorn thn sumo
invitation which has been given to the
mouutaineers. These notifications assure
the old followers of Coxey tluit if they
will come to the Blue Ridge they need
have no concern about rations or a place
to sleep, and that a full supply of arms
and accootorinonts lias boon provided
for as many of thein as will return to
the old cause. So far, it is said, none
of the old followers of Browuo and Coxey
has mado his appearance. The well
to do pooplo of the neighborhood, whilo
they look upon Browno's operations with
tho nioiiiitainoers as a good deal of a
joko and nniko no special objection to
it, do not look with favor upon tho us
sonibliug of Coxey 'a old forces iu thoir
vicinity. They are therefore keeping a
close watch on Browne's operations, and
the county and municipal authorities
bold themselves iu readiness to squelch
Browne's Quixotic undertaking when
ever it threatens to bring upon the
towns of Rivorton and Front Royal the
prospect of an invasion by an undesira
ble and lawless body of men. Wash

Professor Dyche of the Kansas uni

that, given plenty to eat, he will got to
