Report Discredited Some Comment
and Speculation from the Capital.
IXJSDOS, April 11. It is reported at
Rome that, if the United States govern
ment does not answer the note from the
Marquis Imperiali to-day Minister Porter
will be ordered to leave Italy, and the
whole Italian legation at Washington
City will be recalled, Italian interests in
Washington City to ba left in charge of
the British minister. Lst night's ad
vices from Italy represent the Rudini
ybiuet as deeply hurt by American com
ment on tbe Italian difficulty, and that
there is consequently a revulsion of fe el
ing in favor of aggressive measures.
The Americrn Caricaturist Offends.
It is said that King Hnmbert baa re
ceived from the editor of an Italian news
paper in America a package of A merican
newspapers containing pictures ridiculing
his majesty and belittling the power an d
dignity of Italy. One picture ia particu -lar,
representing the king as anion key,
pave great offense. Italian blood is again
'boiling aud "-oniethia startling is antici
pated within a fi-w d.iys.
BLAINE THINKS IT A 11 FAKE.
lie Does Not Credit the Startlin
port Irom Konie.
Washington, April 11. Secretary
Blaine was shown the Rome and Loudon
cable dispatches last night by a represent
ative of the United Press, reporting a re
vulsion of feeling ia Italy in favor of
aggressive measures towarl the United
States, and a Jeterminatiuu on the part
of the Italian government to order Minis
ter Porter to leave Italy and to recall the
remnant of the Italian legation now at
this city. Tbe secretary read the dis
patches carefully and simply remarkcl:
-Not a word relating to ill these reports
has reached the department. No credit is
given to the rumors. They seem to be
sensational." Beyond this . Secretary
Blaine would have nothing to say abont
the Italian imbroglio. Marquis Imperiali,
tbe Italian charge d'affaires, could not be
found eitber at legation headquarters or
Maine's Ueply to Rudini.
Depart meet cfiiuals ceaeraKy are in
credulous. They said that if it were true'
Minister Porter would have known it and
telegraphed at once. Ia some quarters
tnere is curiosity to know why the latest
communication of the Italian government
has not been given to the public This
note was received la.st Saturday. Whether
it was from Rudini direct or signed by
Imperiali is not as yet known. Mr. Blaine
declines to give it out, and refuses to say
when"his reply will be transmitted or i
it has been already transmitted. This
might be satisfactorily explained by the
statement which Mr. Blaine made last
night to the effect that the diplomatic
negotiations between Italy and this coun
try have already been carried on too much
in the newspaper press.
Ital.T Has Not Retreated.
Nothing official has been as yet made
public concerning the contents of Italy's
note of last Saturday, though semi
officially it was given out that Italy re
treated from ber position, and that the
communication was of a pacific nature.
It is now said by thoss iu posit ion to
know that Italy has never retreated from
the demands which she first made through
Baron Fava to wit: punishment of tte
lynchers, whoever they may be. and in
demnification of the families of tbe mur
dered men who were Italian citizens. If
this should turn out to be true, and Italy
has been waiting for further assurances
from Mr. Blame, there may be so ie
truth in the rumor that Rudini, finally
loing patience, has following his recall
of Fava with a still more hostile move
ment. Opiuioa of Foreign Diplomats.
It is kaown that the view which the
Italian government appears to take of our
government's action in this matter is en
tertained also.by the European ministers
stationei here. One of them said a few
days ago: '"There is but one opinion
among the representatives from Europe,
and that is that yon are in the wrong and
that Italy is right, Mr. Blaine ia too
slow. In Europe, where we are suppose.!
to be so deliberate, a matter of this sort
an injury to a foreign citizen would lie
adjusted in a few days by the government
at fault giving ample pledge of its inten
tion to do justice.
Neither Able Nor trilling to Punish.
fcVour goverment has not done this.
You confess your inability to carry out
your treaties. You take your own sweet
time even in making promises, and some
what brusquely decline to be hurried.
Every representative of a foreign govern
ment in this capital knows that the men
who lynched the Italians in New Orleans
will not be punished. Your government
is unable' to punish them if it would, and
unwilling if it were able."
Karon Fava Off for Italy.

recalled Italian minister, left for Europe
early, this morning by the French line

THE "FATHER OF THE SENATE."
Senator Morrill's louoitili on Soma
matters of General Interest.
, New York, April 1L Senator Morrill,
af Vermont, was asked what he thought
of the prospects of Canadian reciprocity.
They are not flattering," be said. ''Rsci
procity with Canada is undesirable. We
could not enter into such relations ou
any article sxcept coal with advantage
to ourselves. We do not want to take off
the duty on their horses and cattle and
barley. The difficulty lies in the desire
of Canada to make no discrimination
Would Spoil the Scheme for I's.
'If they were given the reciprocal rela
tions with this country which some have
asked, they would insist ou the same
. with England, and England would derive
all the benefit. With labor at one-half
the wages we pay, they would supply the
machinery and other manufactured goods,
and Canadian farmers would send ns
their products, buying little in return.
Sir John Macdonald would as soon pnt

proposition to establish relations with us

Prospects for Tariff Legislation.
"Do you look for any changes in the
tariff law at the next congress'"
"No general changes. If the Demo
cratic house were to pass a general tariff
bill, it is not likely tbat the senate would
agree to it. The recent elections indicate
that the sentiment has changed since the
elections last fall, and some of those sena
tors who were not willing to vote with us
for the McKinley bill might hesitate be
fore they voted for any radical measures
in the next congress. If the changes ia
membership aud the strength of those
who voted against the bill last session re
suited iti passing a bill from thd Demo
cratic house the president would veto it."
The Fight Next Year.
Senator Morrill sciid that President
Harrison was the principal ligure on the
Republican slate for lSfl Cltveiand's
chances with the Democrats were about
even. "His letter on the free coinage of
silver." sai l the senator, "will prevent
the Democrats from going in a body to
free coinage in 1SV2. He is too prominent
a figure in his party for it to be otherwise.
Its piain language will have a strong in
fluence on the Democrats everywhere. It
cannot be ignored. Mr. Blaine, I believe,
is loyal to Harrison. Judged by his ap
pearance he is not in perfect health, al
though his mental faculties are as keen
and active as ever."
The Farmers Alliance.
"What w ill the Farmer' Alliance do in

Awful Suffering- of a Man with the

a prominent citizen of South Hadley,

strapped to his bed at his home, a victim
