Special Cable to the Globe.
Washington, Dec. 27.— 1n an inter
view to-day the Persian minister said
that "the purpose of the king in sending
a minister here was to make commer
cial compacts to the interest of both
countries. Your minister to Persia has
encouraged us to take this step, and we
hope to open up a mutually valuable in
terchange of commerce between the two
countries. We would rather American
enterprise would find profit in the de
velopment of our railroads and tele
graphs than thai they should fail into
the hands of nations at rivalry with us.
You must have ear products, and yon
buy them from other people at four
or live prices. We want your prod
nets, and have to get them in
directly at greater expense. "i ou might
as well buy directly from us and sell
directly to us. Our merchants are ready
to bring their goods and wares here.
They are waiting to hear from me. And
our people are ready to buy the products
offered by your merchants and In
ventors. "Wo make shawls, rugs, car
pets, silks, velvets and woolens, such as
cannot be l.ad, except from Paris. We
have a large mineral wealth, gold, silver
and precious stones. Our diamonds are
fine, and all the turquoise used in the
world comes from Persia. Sour people
offer tilings we do not make. Ihe con
ditions an- such as to conduce to the
commercial advantage of both, and the
distance not too great— twenty-five days
journey. Why should not a large trade
be carried on between the two countries
in American vessels?''
PREPARING FOX A TUSSLK.
Democrats Will tiivo the Senate
Tariff Rill a Shaking Up.
Washington, Dec. 27.— The Demo
crats of tin- house are preparing them
selves for another discussion Of the
tariff before the congress expires. The
clerk to the ways and means committee,
Mr. Talbott. has been set to work to get
up information relating to the senate
bill, part of which is tor the use oi the
senators in attacking the bill between
the 2d and *ilst, of January and part for
use in the house a little later on. 1 re
parations are active for a determined
light upon the bill in the senate within
the limited time fixed for debate. Some
Democratic senators are sanguine
enough to think they can defeat the
measure in the senate by a square vote.
This hope is not very generally enter
tained and the Democrats in the bouse
expect certainly todebatethe bill there.
No meeting has been held to consider
the policy "to be Followed [except that

VILIATKI) BY FRAUD.
Secretary Vilas Sets Aside a Cer
tification <>t Swamp Lands.
Was!hn<:ton, Dec. 27.— The secre
tar] of the interior to-day rendered a
decision in the ease of the Slate of Ore
gon vs. United Stales, in which is in
volved about 90,800 acres of land in the
Lake View land district, comprising
what is known as Swamp Land List No.
5. It appears from the records that
these land- inured to the state as swamp
lands, under the net of Sent. 28, 1850,
as extended by the act of March 12, 1860.
Prior to certification the greater pari of
these lands were sold by the state to
various parties in large bodies. !
Upon the reports of special agents of
the department, certification was finally
made. Subsequently it was reported to
the department that the reports of Spe
cial Agent Aukeny and State Agent
Wliittaker were false, and fraudulent,
and that a large part of the lands de
scribed in these reports as swamps were
really high and dry. An investigation
was ordered, and Special Agent Shack
elford was directed to make a personal
examination. His report shows that of
the 00,800 acres, comprising list No. ">,
over 84,000 acres can in no wise be
classed a- swamp, and that of this latter
amount over 30,000 acres are situated on
hills or steep mountains or sagebrush
deserts. This report was duly verified,
and an oral hearing ordered, in
Which the state! was represented by
counsel. The secretary reviews in de
tail the evidence and the law applicable
to the case, and finds that the certifica
tion by Secretary Teller was procured
by Hand and that had Teller known the
facts in the case as they have since been
developed, the certification would never
have been made. The secretary orders
the certification set aside and directs
the commissioner of the general land
oftice to prepare another list which
shall contain only lauds known to be
swamp. As to the other lands, an in
vestigation is ordered and such lands in
the list as are found to be not swamp
are ordered to be restored to the public
domain, subject to any rights which
may have attached to them under the

London, Dee. 27.— N0 little indigna
tion Is expressed at the offices of the
English East African Company in this
city regarding the report that came
to-day from Zanzibar to the effect that
the company not only winked at slavery
but actually contributed its assistance
to the Arab slave dealers to carry on
the infamous traffic. The company
hastens to deny a report which, if be
lieved to be true, would let loose upon
it, an overwhelming torrent of British
: public opinion. The stout denials that
I any such contract as reported exists,
! however, are considered by many to be
i diaphanous, and these doubting ones do
not hesitate to express the belief that
much crooked work has been done in
Africa by this organization for tho
sake of rendering the channels
of trade less difficult of success.
The company, nevertheless, reiterates
I its denials, and asserts that somed is
affected trader, who has not been al
lowed to import slaves, has fabricated
the yarn to revenue himself. Mr. Me-
Kinhon, secretary of the company, Is at

nates in London refuse to talk of the

ly denying the statements and denounc
ing them as atrocious lies.
