John Bull's Reply to Mr. Olney
Will Embody a Refusal to Rec

CHICAGO, Oct. 25.— special to
the Daily News from Washington
slays: The United States will not
consider the ' suggestion of Lord
Salisbury for an alliance for the
building of the Nicaraguan canal
and the direction of South and Cen
tral American affairs. It is under-
stood that the suggestion did not
come in a way to require a formal
reply. The proposition was this:
Thai! Great Britain would be satis
fied if this country would permit
her, without interference on our
part, to take possession by force of
all the territory she claims from
Venezuela, and would agree to the
joint construction and ownership of
the Nicaraguan canal. She would
then pledge herself not to seek the
acquisition of any more territory on
this continent, and would recognize
and join us in enforcing the Mon
roe doctrine. It was represented
that the governments of South and
Central America were irresponsible
and did not afford proper protec
tion to foreigners and foreign inter
ets, and that Great Britain and the
United States should join In com
pelling proper respect to the citizens
or subjects, and the interests of the
United States and Great Britain, one
country or both to maintain a naval
force in the vicinity to protect the
•interests of citizens of either coun
It was intimated -that unless such
an arrangement could be made
Great Britain would not recognize
the Monroe doctrine as having any
force, and that she would be com
pelled to take such steps as she
deemed necessary to protect British
interests on this continent. This sug
gestion is treated as having no ref
erence to the letter of Secretary
Olney on the subject of the Monroe
doctrine, and is entirely formal. The
tone of the delayed reply 'to Mr.
Olney's letter will, however, be in
fluenced by the manner in which this
informal suggestion is received. Be
ing satisfied the United States will
not* consider a proposition for an al
liance, probably no answer will be
formally made, and the subject will
be ignored as if never broached. The
reply to Mr. Olney is expected to be
simply the alternative proposition
that Great Britain cannot recognize
'the Monroe doctrine and will pro
tect her interests in her own way.
ATGELD'S GOOD REASON
Why He Is Not a Candidate for the
SPRINGFIELD, 111., Oct. 26.-Gov.
Altgeld will not be a candidate next
year for United States senator. He so
declared himself today. It was thought
by many politicians that the with
drawal of Palmer from the race would
induce Gov. Altgeld to announce him
self, In this they were mistaken.
Gov. Altgeld left no room for doubt
as to hist intentions.
"Now that Gen. Palmer has with
drawn from the race for the senator
ship next year," the governor was
asked, "will you be a candidate?"
"No," he replied, "A decent regard
for the proprieties forbids that any
Democrat should make an effort to be
elected senator in this state next year.
As dudes say, it would be in bad form."
"How is that, governor?" was the
next question. '•
"Well," was the reply, "aside from
the vacancy caused by the death of
Senator Herb, Republicans have a ma
jority of seventeen of the hold-over
senators and conditions in this state
are such that if we were to sweep
everything before us next year, as we
did in 1592, we could not possibly get
a majority of more than twelve or
fourteen of newly elected members, so
that even if the Lord were to be with
us next year, Republicans would still
have a majority of five or six on joint
ballot. Under these circumstances it
would look gready for a Democrat to
want the place, and as 'Democrats are
all well-bred - gentlemen, they will not
be guilty of such a breach of decorum,
but will preserve . their dignity and
pursue the even tenor of their ways."

Trvo Lives Lost by an Explosion
on a Tug: Boat.
CHICAGO.Oct 26.-The tugboat Mor
ford, of the Dunham company, while
towing the steamer, lonia blew up her
boiler, shortly 'before . 4 o'clock ; this
morning, in the river near Seventeenth
street. - Two men were killed and one
other seriously injured. The dead are:
John Erickson, fireman of the T. T.

Daniel Mcßae, feet burned and ankle
sprained. Immediately after the ex
plosion the tug sank to the bottom of
the river. At the -time of the explo
sion, Capt. Cullinan was in the pilot
house. He was blown some distance
away, and was taken out of the water
in an unconscious condition. The pilot
house of the tug O. B. Green, which
lay near the Morford, was smashed by
the explosion, and Capt. Ferguson,
who was asleep inside, was instantly

LAST WEEK OF THE TRIAL.
Durrani's Fate Will Be Known
Before Next Sunday.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 26— The trial
of Theodore Durrant Is nearing its close
and the case will probably go to the
jury next Thursday or Friday. At
torney Dickinson, for the defense, has
said he will conclude on Tuesday morn
ing, to which day the case has been
continued, and Attorney Deuprey, also
for the defense, will probably finish
for Durrant on Tuesday afternoon.
District Attorney Barnes expects to
begin his argument on Wednesday
morning and to complete his address
the same day. Judge Murphy's
charge will be long and exhaustive,
and its delivery may occupy a day.
The exhibits are numerous, and in the
case of some will require much study
on the part of the jury. This is par
ticularly true of the comparison of
the notes of Durrant and those of
Student Glaser; with whom Durrant
quizzed. It is understood that the dis
trict attorney will parallel the two
sets of notes and argue that Dur
rant's could not be more like Glaser's
without having been copied verbatim.
The district attorney will.it is said.also
attack the roll call.and will call atten
tion to the error in' marking Student
Gavin present when he was in fact
absent. . The jury will be asked to
Judge for itself as to the alleged sim
llarity between the handwriting of Rev.
J. George Gibson and that of the pack
age enclosing Blanche Lamont's rings.
The defense abandoned its intention
of placing experts on the stand to en
deavor to show this alleged similarity
DURRANT'S SEALED LETTER.
It Charged Gibson and Another
Man With the Murder.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26.-The Ex
aminer says that the contents of the
| mysterious letter which was to be open
; ed in case Theodore Durrant is con-
victed, is known. In this letter, it is
I said, that Durrant makes . the state
. ment that he saw the last details of the
[ murder, and saw Rev. J. George Gib
; son and another person prominent in
. church affairs bending over the body
jof Blanche Lamont. The Examiner
, says that although Durrant requested
i his lawyers not to open the letter un-
less he was convicted, they have open-
ed It, and so remarkable were the state
ments it contained that even they did
not believe them and refrained from
using them in Durrant's defense. '
EIGHT YEARS FOR COFFIN,

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., 0ct.26.-Judge

i ing sentenced j Francis A. Coffin, the
j former president of the Indianapolis
j Cabinet company, found guilty of aid
i ing in the wrecking of the Indianapolis
j National bank, to eight years in the

j made concurrent, not cumulative, so
i that the expiration of one means the

RECALL OF GOV. LEES.
Britain* Evidently . Displeased
7 7 Over His Lack of Influence.
V WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.— The action
of the British Guiana authorities in
'rejecting by a vote of 10 to 8 the pol-'
«Icy urged by British Minister Cham-
Jberlain forarming the Venezuelan fron-
tier with Maxim guns excites much in
terest in official and diplomatic circles.
.It is saidl to be a most unusual course
$ for the colonial government to reject
'-.the advice of the home government on
;*quG3tions of important public policy.
I.lt appears also that, following the ad
|* verse action in British Guiana, the
I London foreign office cabled direc
tions to Sir Charles Lees, governor gen-
eral of the colony, to return to Lon
-7 don. It Is stated here that this was
.^equivalent to a recall, and the belief is
■ expressed, that it indicates the disap
proval of the London authorities in the
inability of the governor general to
j carry out the policy laid down by Min
| ister Chamberlain.' The position of a
| governor general is one of such dig
! nlty that it is not usual to summon
'him to London merely for consulta
tion,- although this happened when the
[Venezuelan question reached a crit
| leal stage in. 1841. Among those in a
; position to be best informed the belief
! .is quite positive that Sir Charles has
; been recalled, and that the action of
i the Guiana council is the direct cause
| of it. The -governor general is now on
| his way from Demerara to London.
I; The British ultimatum has not yet
I reached Caracas. The understanding
here is that it was . forwarded from
London to Berlin and thence by steam- I
er from Hamburg to La Guayra. The '
trip would take two or three weeks, |
so that Its receipt in Venezuela is an- (
ticipated within the next few days.
Monday next Is the "Feast of Boli
var," the national" holiday of Venezue- l
la, and it is believed that President |
Crespo will take occasion on that day
to name the members of the cabinet,
Including the minister, of foreign af-
fairs. *. ' •

FRENCH CONTROL . COMPLETE.
Madagascar Would Be an Uncom
fortable Place for Waller to
WASHINGTON, Oct. 26.— Today's
dispatch giving particulars of the
treaty between France and Mada
gascar conveyed the first details of
the convention to the state depart-
ment which had been received there.
The officials expressed much interest
in 'the question, but declined to be
quoted in the absence of the full
text. It may be given, however, as
the general opinion -in the depart-
ment that, according to the terms
of the \ agreement so far as given,
the French have succeeded 'in mak-
ing- their own. terms with Madagas
, car, and that - the protectorate for
which it provides really amounts to
making Madagascar a dependency
of the French republic. It confirms
' and extends the claims of the French
under the treaty of 1886, and abso
lutely nullifies the protocol to that
agreement, which the Malagassy
j government claimed so modified the
treaty as to give them absolute con
| trol over their internal affairs. The
j French government never, recog
nized the binding effect of this prot-
notwithstanding it was nego
tiated by the French plenipoten
i Mary.-- -■ ~ .
i The United States has remained
I neutral on this point, apparently
leaving the course to be pursued
largely to the American consul in
Madagascar. Consul Waller accept-
ed his exequateur from the native
government, while Mr. Wetter ap-
plied for has through the French
resident, on which account the
queen refused to recognize him. He
is therefore only acting consul at
this time. This protocol expressly
renewed to the Hova government
the right to control the internal af-
fairs of the island without French
"interference. The queen of the isl-
and acted under the terms of the
j protocol in making the Waller con-
cession. Thfcs 'department officials
are very guarded in discussing the
probable effect of the annulment of
j the protocol. It is pointed out
l however, that it is usual for this
! government to Insist upon recogni
| tion of her own treaties regardless
| of changes of administration in oth
er countries, from' which it may be
I inferred that the United States will
; demand that property rights ac
j quired by American citizens in Mad
- agascar under the former treaty
will be protected. It is not believed
under the circumstances that . if
Waller be restored to the possession
of the grant he would find its oc
cupancy either pleasant or profita
ble, and lit is supposed on this ac-
count that he would prefer accept-
ing an indemnity from France in
lieu of the land itself.
. TROUBLE FOR WALLER.
. Grammon Kennedy, the - attorney
i who has presented the Waller case to
the state department,' on being shown
the Paris cable, - said that the effect
of the treaty, undoubtedly would be to
prejudice and perhaps to annihilate the
Waller concession so far as the French
authorities could effect that result. But
it remained to .be seen, . Mr. Kennedy
said, what the United States j govern-
ment would say respecting the pre-
judicing of the concession of an Amer
ican citizen," granted in 1894, before the
French treaty was ; in operation/ Mr.
Kennedy Is of the pinion that this gov
ernment will not allow invested Amer
ican ; interests ■to "suffer by the treaty.
[He points out ; the language, ."The re-

bility for concessions heretofore grant-
ed," does not amount to an actual
public does not asnume the responsl-
wiping out of the Waller and other con-
cessions, though its obvious purpose is
to withhold all recognition of the
queen' 3 concessions. Mr. Kennedy
points out that the treaty of 1883 be-
tween Madagascar and the United
States expressly provided for conces
sions to the citizens of this country.
That feature of the new treaty which
makes French diplomatic officers as
representatives of the interests of
Madagascar may '"' bring Ambassador
Paternotre into the case, not as a rep-
resentative of France, but as the in-
direct representative of Madagascar.

in favor of the ratification of the bill

men of the. Republican, the Demo

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 26.—
is reported that John D. Rockefeller,
the Standard Oil magnate and multi
millionaire, is backing the plan of
reorganization of the Wisconsin
Central lines, in the hope of ulti
mately securing full control of the
property. ; If his plans carry he will
furnish the necessary money to put
the line in excellent shape and on a
basis where it will be able to success
fully compete for not only through
traffic between St. Paul and Chicago,
but also for Eastern traffic. There
are several good reasons, it is stated,
why Rockefeller is anxious to se
cure the Central property. He is
the owner of Mesaba range prop
erties, and he owns the railroad
which runs through the range, and
which he is about to extend to West
Superior. . With the Central's fer
ries across Lake Michigan and its
connections at Chicago it would give
him the means necessary to send his
ore to all parts of the world, together
with the finished product, which he
would like to manufacture.

NEW YORK, . Oct. President
Brayton Ives, of the Northern Paci
fic railroad, in, an interview said: "It
is a gratifying fact that all antagonism
between the hitherto conflicting inter-
ests in the Northern Pacific property
has come to an end and the represent-
atives of all classes of securities are in
harmony. It is- the general aim, for
the first time since the road went into
the hands of receivers, to secure the
best and most economical management
of the property. The situation te that
now, in accordance with the recommen
dation of Judge Lacombe, efforts will
be made to bring about a conference
of the present receivers, or of . their
representatives', with the object of se-
curing the appointment of .: say four
receivers for the whole system.- At
present there is not a single receiver
for the whole' property. - Representa
tives of all of the various interests will
be sent to the West to work In order to
bring about this object. Of the receiv
ers sought to be appointed, I am as-
sured that Messrs. Galloway and Bur-
leigh will be named. These gentlemen
. have been unanimously approved by
all of the various representative Inter-
ests. They will not represent any spe

Freight Men to Confer on the Sub-

Beginning tomorrow In Chicago the
freight men will confer on the subject
of freight matters in general and the
division of business in particular. The
Western trunk line committer is prac

eral plan as before, and the purpose is
to bring about an agreeable division
of traffic between Chicago and the
Missouri river as well as between in-
terior points between Chicago and
lowa Although there has been no
Indiscriminate cutting of freight rates
there has been some dissatisfaction
among the various lines, and the pool
arrangement will have a tendency to
steady the tariff rates, as the lines
have all cancelled contracts naming
rates below the tariff."
It will probably require the greater
part of the week to agree on the va
rious percentages of the traffic for the
