II THE ?EL! jF MIKE
NEW YOKE STOCKS.
New York, Feb. 25.?There was no re?
lief to ilny from the Insufferable dullness
that bus characterized the sto?k market
for some time. The total transactions
were only 88,227 shares, nud a number of
stocks were practically neglected. There
was an indisposition to trade on all Bides,
and even when it was announced that the
Senate had voted in favor of taking up
the Sauguilly resolution, business re?
mained dull and stupid, Although the
bears succeeded in bringing about a gene
rally lower range of price". Speculation I
at the opening was fairly firm in sympa?
thy with the receipts of some slightly
higher quotations from London and the
leading shares improved 1-8 to 3-4 per
cent. Buying orders were limited, how?
ever, and its soon as the traders ?aw that
the big operators were taking little inter?
est in the course of the market they lost
no time in getting out.
A little stir was created by the an?
nouncement that a receiver had been ap?
pointed for the Columbus, Hocking Val?
ley and Toledo road, especially as the
stock declined "2 and the consolidated
lives 1 1-2 per cent., but the consolidated
lives and sixes subsequently advanced 5
a? 1 2 per cent on well authenticated re?
ports that the road will be reorganized by
.f. P. Morgan & Co., and that the lirm
will probably offer to advance ?2? a bond
on the live per cents deposited with them
pending the preparation of a plan for the
rehabilitation of the property.
After the action of the Semite on the
Snnguilly matter became known, the
bears were more aggressive and a decline
of 1-1 to 1 :i S per cent, ensued right
through the list; the market closing weak
at about, the lowest point. Among the
high priced issues Omaha preferred ml
vaneed 2, while Consolidated (ias and
New York and New Knglaud declined la
1 1-2 pel cent. The weakest stocks in the
latest, transactions were Sugar. .Manhat?
tan, Jersey Central and the Grangers.
Sugar figured for IT.snii: Hockliig Valley
for 10,000; llurliuuton ami Qulncy for
8,500; St. I '.lit I for 0,500; Tobacco for
V.HIO: Leather preferred for 3,800; and
Heading for8,5U0 shares. No other stocks
were traded to the extent cf 3,000 share-.
Net changes shew declines of I s to 5-8
percent. Sugar and Jersey Central lead.
Hocking Valley was un exception and
closed I 5 8 lower i.n the day
The feature of the trading in bonds to?
day was the strength of the [locking Yal- |

DANIKL ON THE TREATY.
The Virginia Senator Tells Why lie op?
poses Its Ratification.
Lynch burg, Feb. 25.?United States
Senator John W. Daniel has writ ten a
letter to Mr. Lawrence I-',. 'Nichols, presi?
dent of the debating society connected
with "the Young Men's Christian Asso?
ciation of this city, in which he brlelly
outlines his position on the arbitration
treaty. The following are extracts from
"The discussion of the Anglo American
treaty now pending in the United States
Senate has been in secret session, anil I
am not able to send you the confidential
correspondence concerning it because it
has not. been made public, anil there are
no speeches which have been made except
in secret session. My own remarks on the
subject in secret session, which, like those
of others, have been referred to in the
press, have been misquoted aud their
sense perverted. No one could judge cor?
rectly of my views by the press reports.
"I send you a copy of the pendiug trea?
ty. My chief objection was that it sub?
mits to arbitration all questions which
may hereafter arise between the United
Stales and Great Britain ^without the ac?
tion of the Senate in each [case, or rather
in each das-, of eases, ami that. it. disfran?
chises the great mass of citizens front
beim; arbitrators by rcqnlrlng that, they
shall he selected from the judiciary. It
should be conformed to.our institutions,
which are different from ^those of Great
Britain,and under no circumstances could
I vote for a treaty which 'abdicates the
functions of the body of which I am a j
member, and which turns the judiciary
into a body of diplomats.
"There is inherent difficulty in con?
structing a permanent board to consider
disputes which have never arisen. There
tire some matte. s which no nation can
ever atl'ord to submit to arbitration,
such matters, for instance, as those which
led to the war of independence and the
war of 1812. We should be sure before
signing a treaty to see to it that clear and
distinct limitations were put to the class
of questions to be submitted."
The letter closes as follows: "Not long
ago we were being urged to intervene
against the barbarities of the Turks in
Armenia What do the good people who
wanted us to intervene thee think of the
picture presented now?Great Britain
tiring on the Creeks and assisting the
Turks in their damnable oppression."
Seautor Daniel's letter was written in
reply to a rennest, from Mr. Nicholas for
information in regard to tin? treaty, the
question of arbitration being before the
literary society for discussion.

From two distinct sources statements
were received here early ^this morniiu:
that Consul General Leo ' had received
bis passports." This rumor I naturally
caused excitement and n general desire to
know definitely whether Genend Leo's
cbutemplllted withdrawal trom Havana
was his own net resulting from tho ac?
ceptance of his resiunntion, said to have
been cabled last Sunday, or whether it
bad been brought about by the action of
the Spanish authorities in Cuba,in which
latter case its significance would be much
Iui|iilries in olllcinl quarters elicited
Btrong denials of the rtiinor. The well?
known fact was pointed out that pass?
ports were not given to counstds, but
onlv to ministers and ambassadors: that
in case of an offending or retiring consul
the document sent, him on bis departure
was his "cxeonatcr," or the olllcinl docu?
ment rccogiii/.iug his right to exercise the
functions ->t' his odicc, and it was said
that not. even the se-ni-diplonmtic posh
tion accorded to our consul geueral at
Havana, by consent of the Spanish gov?
ernment, would render his case where
?'passports * would he "required. Tho re?
turn of .his "exequntur" to the consul
general would,;of course, lie equivalent to
the sculling of "passports'* to a minister.
But at the Spanish legation as well as
the State Department, it was emphnti
cally asserted t hat this course had not
been taken. The dilliltl wire quite as
emphatic as for warships, and the con
dltionnl tender of his resignation, if this
request should not lie granted.
It was stated on direct, authority of a
member of the Cabinet that Secretary
Olnev stated to his associates at the Cab
inet meeting Tuesday last that it was
not true that General Lee had resigned
or that lie had asked for warships. "Mr.
Olney, on this occasion, added that the
statements put out were simply an at?
tempt to "run the State Department
through the newspapers.1 It was again
said this morning, as coming from Secre?
tary Olney, that there was no change in
the Cuban situation. Thus the matter
Government ofliccrs, however, continue
to deny the truth of statements that Gen?
eral Leo's resignation has been received
at the State Department. It is not. de?
nied that there has been friction between
General Leo ami the department, but
confidence is expressed that General Dee
