Herbert, agent general in London for Tasmania, toasted the colo nics which, he said, were greatly indebted to Mr. Bayard for the settlement of cer tain questions tending to the federation of the English-speaking people.

"There Is not. and there ought to be no just obstruction between .the United States. Great Britain and Canada. There hould be no divergence by sharp phrases and lnsuits, that sting longer than injuries." Referring in his usual strain to the rt lations between England and the United States, Mr. Bayard closed by saying: "It I have invoked the displeasure of scmo because I have sought to preserve amity, I cannot say that I am sorry. On the contrary, I am rather grateful for the distinction. It is in no spirit of defiance, but in a well considered spirit of grati tude, that I rellect that I have been able to bring the hands and hearts of the two countries together. If that is my record. I shall carry it away and keep it where ever I go." The guests all arose in their pTaces at the conclusion of the ambassador's spr c-ch, loudly cheering and waving their handkerchiefs. It was the greatest ova tion that has been tendered to Mr. Bay ard during his service here. He was very forcibly affected and almost broke down once or twice during the course of his speech.

GETTING SILVER FOR GOLD Cameron Resolutions Taken for Shelved, for the Time, at Least, and the Pros pects for a Peaceful Ereataatlon of All Difficulties Taken for Granted, and Liveliness Springs Up at Onco Gran gers, Southwesterns, Anthracites and Consolidated Gas Advance, on Earnings and Dividends Foreign Stock Markets., New York, Jan. 6. The general market during the forenoon displayed increased strength and a greater degree of animation than has been recently noted, partly owing to what was regarded as the virtual shelv ing of tho Cameron Cuban resolutions. The prospect of a peaceful settlement, thua taken for granted by the traders, caused a more cheerful sentiment, which was re flected in a tWder distribution of business at advancing prices. The dealings included a number of the usually inactive stocks. The specialties were subjected to consider able manipulation, and the more favorable character of the railway returns encourag ed operations in the grangers and south wciterns for the long account. The traders d"-: cgarded lower prices for American se curities In London, and some selling for that account here worked against the shorts in some of the stocks that have recently displayed the greatest heaviness. Consol idated Gag was advanced 3V& per cent, to 245 per cent, on the suggested probability of the agitation for $1 gas giving place to measures providing for a gradual moderate reduction in the price, covering a period of several years. Long Island jumped 4 per cent on more encouraging theories regard ing tho payment of a dividend this month. The anthracite coal shares were actively dealt in at advancing prices. Delaware and Hudson, particularly, rose 1 per cent, to 121i per cent, on rumors that the 7 per cent dividend rate would be maintained. The action of the directors in reducnlg the 1SS7 disbursement to 5 per cent was not announced until near the close of business and caused a temporary decided revluslon of sentiment, affecting also, the general list. Delaware and Hudson fell S& per cent, to lH's per cent, and the general list yielded smypathetlcally, but became less active on realizations. The market closed weak at slight net changes in either direction. The total sales of stocks today were 145, 6C9 shares, Including: American Sugar 22, 2C0; Burlington 16,900; Chicago Gas S,500; Chesapeake and Ohio 3,400; Delaware and Hudson 4,800; General Electric 3,000; Louis ville and Nashville 6,500; Reading 6,700; St. Paul, 13,700; Rock Island 3,100; Union Pa cific 9.100.
