NEW York, March 23. Many were tho
expressions of surprise at the headquarters
ot the Salvation Armv when the news
leaked out that Colonel William Eadie,
tho chief secretary, had received a cable
message from General Booth ordering
him to London. Ono of tho stipulations
that Ballington made to the three com
missioners to get him to withdraw was
that Colonel Kadle should go to London,
England, and never return.
Tho officers of tho Salvation Army and
the Volunteers, tho name finally selected
by the secessionists, look upon this as
the first step taken by tho old general to
ward effecting a reconciliation with his
son. Booth-Tucker, the newly appointed
commander ot tho United States forces,
who has already sailed from England, is
known to be tho bearer of several propo
sitions ta Ballington Booth.

Told by a Spanish Editor to Try and Take

"New Your, March 23. A dispatch to
Tho World from Madrid says: La Epoca,
the leading Spanish ministerial organ,
says: An exhaustive examination of the
accounts published by the leading Amer
ican newspapers of the debates in congress
shows that, setting aside hypocrisy, the
real issue, as some senators point out, is
whether the United States can take pos
session of Cuba by force or not. If they
can, why let them declare war against us;
let them set their fleets in motion and
send them to Cuba.
"They need not doubt that wo will re
ceive t hem ns it behooves us to da If
they cannot declare war then, as the most
honorable members of congress have said,
let theso debates cease and let Spain gov
ern herself with the liberty she is entitled
to and which nobody can limit. Any
thing is better than to go on threatening
and hiding under the veil of jingoism the
well-known intentions of those whose
aspiration is the independence of Cuba in
order to obtain its annexation afterward."
