The republicans do not expect to elect
more than one or two of their aldermanic
candidates. In fact it is admitted that
they were put up to be traded off for the

ticket, with the exception of Koebler and
Haas, to gam that end .

Oar Treaty with Italy The M ar Spirit
Abroad American Citizen Ready for
a Fight at Short Notice.
Washington City, April 3. An eu
tirely new phase of the situation sur
rounding the recall of the Italian minister
has developed, growing out of a dispatch
from Premier Rudini to the Marquis Im
periali, in charge of the legation in this
city, l hi3 dis- patch is interpreted bj such
officials of the state department as c?m be
seen to mean that Italy virtually recedes
from the attitude assumed sinca the be
ginning of the controversy, and indicates
her willingness to await the action of the
New Orleans courts before making any
further denioi strations toward the United
Uotli Surprised and AuiuaeU.
The receipt of t his dispatch caused the
greatest surprise in all quarters, attended
with a feeling of intense amusement at
the very huni )le manner in which the
Italian government now bows before Sec
retary Blaine on the heels of two days of
warlike bluster. Marquis Imperial! had
nothing to say last evening when asked as
to the effect of his latest instructions. He
would not admit that he had received
them, and intimated that he could not re
fer to communications sent to him from
Rome until he had first made known their
contents to Secretary Blaine.
Itaron lava'x Friend Talks.
Baron Fava would not talk for publica
tion, but his intimate friend. Dr. T. S.
Verdi, who has been in constant consulta
tatiou with him for the past two days,
denies that Italy has receded from its
belligerent attitude. He said: "I have
seen the instructions received by Im
periali. Ia my opinion there is no intima
tion that the ltaliau government ac
knowledges tLat it has been too hasty in
the matter. Id fact, it won 1,1 lw
wise and impolitic for it to recede one
step ironi rue position it has taken.

A REMARKABLE STIPULATION.
A Urged to Have a l'lace in Oar Treaty
The Tost says that in oar treaty with
Italy, article 21 stipulates that if this
country and Itsly should ever declare war
all merchants c u the coasts or in ports of
each country sh all be allowed one year to
arrange their business andtrausport their
effects to their own country, and in the
case of persons living in the interior the
time shall be one year. In case of inva
sion all artisans, mechanics and farmers
shall be allowed to coutinue their calling
uninterrupted; i heir property shall not be
destroyed nor t leir fields wasted: that if
anything necessiry 1)8 taken by the ene
my it shall be paid for. The article also
declares that r.o pretense that war dis
solves tieaties shall annul or su?end this
Would N t Stand a Moment.
The existence of this article was not
generally known by the diplomats aud
others to whom it was shown last nizht.
Even such an experienced treaty
maker as Willi.im B. Trescott said he
could not understand how it came to be
inserted, and Ilepresentative McCreary,
who has made a study of all the treaties
negotiated by this government, said that
it was the most remarkable clause that
had ever come within his experience. "I
do not like to say it is mere buncombe,"
he added, "and yet it would not stand a
moment in cast; of war, notwithstand
ing all its solemn and sacred protesta
tions." Blaine T1U tto Bight On.
Not withstand! ag the withdrawal of
Baron Fava and the severance of diplo
matic relations between the United States
and Italy, Secretary Blaine will not allow
his interest in regard to the New
Orleans affair to rest, aud he will inform
the Italian government of the result of the
grand jury's investigation of the killing
of the Italians. Baron Fava has not yet
applied for his piissports.

Washington Citt, April 3 Represent
ative Springer is not the most frequeut
speaker in the Loue. During the first

as it may seem, this statement has been

about it Inasmuch as the entire cost ot
