The breadth and variety and the general tone of strength and confidence reflected in the week's Etock market have never before been equalled, according to competent au thorities. The recent large buying for banking interests and with a view to consolidation of railroad interests, as well as tacitly admitted projects for some very important readjustments of railroad capitalization are the spur to the speculation, which has as its groundwork a deeply underlying' confi dence in the sound prosperity, present and prospective, of the country. The ease of the money market gives fuil sway to the speculative spirit and has led to free discounting of the demand for stocks expected in January, when profits will be seeking reinvestment. The demand has embraced all classes of securities, both stocks and bonds and profit taking sales, although increas ing in effect towards the end of the week, have not materially impaired the strong undertone of the market. OBJECT TO ITALIANS. f 1 T t X T 7 T t T f T Mrt -J J Florence, Colorado, itinera 'Will Op pose Imported Labor. Denver, Col., Dec. 22. Dr. Joseph Cuneo. Italian consul, made an appeal to Governor Thomas for protection of his countrymen involved in a threaten ed race war at Florence. His request was that pressure be brought on the Fremont county authorities to exercise all precautions at their command to prevent an outbreak and if necessary to call out the militia. The consul also w-ired the Italian ambassador at Wash ington to appeal to President McKinley for federal aid should the state authori ties be unable to cope with the situa tion. The threatened trouble is the result of the importation of a number of Italians to work in a smelter for the treatment of gold ore. The mill and smelter men's union have objected but do serious ac tion has been taken though threats are said to have been made. Edward Seed, an employe of the smelter, was killed yesterday, apparently by accident, by one of the Italians. This incident has in creased the bitter feeling and a race war has been predicted.

Massachusetts Senator Makes Clear Hay-Pauncefote Treaty. "Washington, Dee. 22. Senator Lodge, who had charge of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty In the senate, today made the following statement; "The senate amendments -were: not dictated by hostility toward England, and still less were they in any degree a reflection upon the secretary of state. The amendments were made by the senate solely because in its opinion they wera necessary for the interests of the United States for the avoidance of any question as to the control of the canal, and consequently for the sake of peace ful and harmonious relations with the rest of the world oa that subject in the future. "" "The first amendment is a simple dec laration that the Clay ton-Bui wer treaty cease? to exist and is superseded by the Haj -Pauneefote treaty. The object of the latter was to remove the former as an obstacle, to the construction of the isthmian canal. Some good judges thought that the Hay-Pauncefote treaty did this completely as' it stood. Others believed that certain portions of the Ciayton-Bulwer treaty still remained in force. To allow this doubt to continue would have been a grave mistake. The American people desired to i rid of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty finally and be yond question. "Under artielo II of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty as it stood we were clearly I bound, if engaged in war, to permit a hostile fleet it it succeeded in getting inside the three mile zone, to pass un molested through the canal.. This may or may not be a practical question, and it is of no consequence whether it is or not; it was a solemn promise to permit a hostile fleet to use the canal. "That promise ,we either intended to ke"p or else we made it knowing that under the stress of war we should break; it. If we meant to keep It, then it was a promise no nation ought to make, L we knew that we should not keep it in time of war, then it was only honest and fair to relieve ourselves of the ob ligation in the treaty itself. This was the purpose of the second or Davis amendment, wnich entirely disposes- of ajiy such promise and which follows ex actly in principle and almost exactly iu words article X of the Suez convention which reserve similar rights to Turkey, whose interest in the Suez canal is tri vial compared to ours in that proposed in Nicaragua. Tne third amendment strikes out ar ticle II by which we engaged to invite olb?r rations to adhere to the treaty and thereby become parties to it. Had there been no Ciayton-Bulwer treaty we should have negotiated with no one ex cept Ccsfa Rica and Nicaragua as to building the canal. With England,- owing- to the Ciayton-Bulwer treaty, we were obliged to treat, but as we expect Europe to keep out of this hemisphere, it seemed to the senate unwise, however excellent and liberal the intention to in vite European nations to share in an American treaty and thus give them the right to meddle in American affairs at any point. "We desire to dispose of the Ciayton Bulwer treaty in the most friendly way possible. "We are most averse to any other disposition of it. England docs not intend to go to war with us to pre vent cur buiiding the canal and if it is physically possible to build it we mean in any event to do so. Under these cir cumstances we are very clear that it i. as much for England's interest as for cur3 to accept the new propositions in the friendly spirit in which they are of fered and thus end a controversy over an outworn treaty which is only a stumbling block to both nations. It is not to be doubSed that the English min isters, whose ability.experience and rep utation are known to ail the world, will duly weigh all these considerations a.il rightly comprehend the purpose of the senate amendments and the spirit in which they are presented." G R A B HILL FINISHED. Sixty Million Dollars Asked For Riv ers and Earbora. "Washington, Dec. 2.
