Whiteley, has 1',ased to defend the suit and will permit his wife to get a decr.' se\vering them by de fault. In Judge liarney's court this morning the plaintiff's attorney asked the court for an order entering the default of Whitel-ey.

"No, sir," the lawyer replied. "The defendant refusing to plead to the complaint, let his d(efult be entered and the plainitiff's proofs be put on the calendar for a hearing," the court said. Mirs.

PAYNE ISSUES A STATEMENT. Action on War Revenue Reduction Bill Not to Sidetrack Cuban Reciprocity. (Fy Associated Press.) Washinugton, Feb. 1.--Chairmarn Payne, of lh ehouse ways and means commint tee, yesterday authorized the follownlug statement: "A report is being lilustrioutlvy cr culated to the effect that the ways and means committee, by taking action on the bill reducing war taxes, has recent ly sought to dispose of the subject of Cuban reciprocity. Nothing could be further from the facts. i'he bill to reduce war revenue taxes was taken up because it was the senti ment of the committee that the burdens resting upon our own people should be lightened before we turned our attention to lightening the burdens of other peo ple. But It had no Idea of making a reduc tion of the war taxes a barrier to full consideration of the relief asked by Cuba. "The subject Is to receive the fullest and early attention of the ways and means committee, and any repo*t sug gesting that it has been covertly pre Judiced is unwarranted by the facts."

BRIFAINF RItNOLY HELD Ol OTa=R IOW3R DUR. ING WA ~ WIT "sPAltN. THREATENED TO USE FORCE Xot Only Refused to Join the Coalition But Said She Would Nullify It Russia Did Not Act Until Sometime Later. (Bfy Associated Press.) I Washington, Feb. 1.-An important and almost sensational contribution to he history of the attempt to form a turopean coalition against the United tates at the outbreak of the Spanish merican war was made today by a gentleman not now In public life, but who, in the spring of 1898, was in a position to know all the facts. The Identity of this person cannot Ie discussed, but is of high character and adequate information, an ssurance which would be carried by his name alone, could that be published. The statement which this gentleman iakesn is in effect that the government of Great Britain not only refused to Join the propolsed coalition, but threw out a broad Ilinllation to its prorponents that if they Iperslsted in their efforts andt attenmpted to bring prressure to heiar upon the l'nited States in Spain's Ibehalf, li'eaat Britain would "use other than diplonlatic means if nec(ssary" to maku the 'coalition harmnless. [lut one constructlon can bie placed on tLhei e words, to ' it, that If conti nntal powers attempted to intimidate the United States Great Britain would make. a show of force by dhispathing a sqlundron either to Amerlcan or Spanish waters, or' by some other demonstration iveI h' Ithmost significant evidence ' f her lintentlon to support the United States. Makes a Statement. With some reluctance on account of Lthe cronfidentlal relations which existed h·tweenl President McKinley and him self, the gentlhrnlan today consented to Ilrmlke the following statement: "In view of the false and misleading hstatemnlnts which have been made re g:ardinhg the attitude of the powers prior to the declaration of war. the incorrect cionitruction put on Lord Cranborne's rnelly to Henry Nornm i, aind the attempt to inllduci the il nited States to forget h-r friends and give credit where It does not bIelong, I feel not only am I justilled in revealing certain colnfidenche r.'poisrd in me, but it is a duty I owe to our orwn people to let them know the farts In ionnlectlonl with one of the most imiportant evens In our national history. "One' IeOson why it would he embar raI'ssing for the Blritish government to make publih the coinftldentlal communica tions that pIassed between London and Washington, Is that the publieotlon of these documents would show that Great Britain did more than sihe was really called upon to do. "RSio. avowed her purlpose to use other means than diplornmry if necessary to prevent a coalitlon against the Unitedi States. This intention was made known to President MKlinley: later It became known to certain of the Europeon Iowers. "The statementl is now for the first time made public by one who had knowl iege of facts. It is a fact and cannot lhe disputed. (treat llrltain's purpose was inot made Incidentally, verbally or by irrespolsible plersons. "The statement I Iiow make is sus tailned by documentary evidence anid was made by pqrsons who had the power to rconvert tht offer into ani actuality. England Our Ally. 'In the early days preceding the de claration of hostilities, the featr of a ~European coalition against the United states caused President McKinley the greatest anxiety. It was well kniwn in Washington that Spailn was trying to find an ally. "It was only when the attitude of :hreat Britain became absolutely certain that President McKinley felt sattalled Spain had beenr isolated. Whent that was known Ills last lingering fear va.lished. "Of the utmost Importance Is it to hear i n mind that up to that time the posI tion of IRussla was not definitely known to the Washllngton government, a':hough Itussla way suspected of being frlendly to Spain owing to the efforts then beingK made by her ally France to seek the In tervention of European powers In Spint 's behalf. "When the position of England was known to ltussla, and methods were taken to bring this fact to her kilowl edge In such a w;aay that It could not be questioned, Russia threw over France and declared her sympathy for the United States. "'lut the Important fact-also a mat tor of r(ecord-is that Russia acted only :fter England had In effect made her self the ally of the United States." Just What Was Wanted. From equally good sources the fol lowing information is gained: When the continental powers attelmpt ed to bring pressure to bear upon Presl dent McKinley through their ambhassa lore here they sought the co-operation of Lord Pauncefote, the British am bassador. The British ambassador refused to have anything whatever to do wIth the movement save on the condition that everything that was done should first be made known to President McKinley and recelve his sanction. These terms were reluctantly agreed to. Lord Paunce fote personaly visited l'resldent McKinley and submitted the matter to him. Mr. McKinley was quite willing to have representation made by the powers, provided they were of harm less forlim. In fact, he welcomed the oppo,'tunlty to have such representations made, be cause they would afford an opportunity for the United States to serve notice that no sort of intervention or Interfer ence would be permitted. Lord Pauncefote drafted the , note which the diplomats were to submit to tlhe president and personally carried it to the White house and showed It to Mr. McKinley. It received the president's sanction, and was then signed by the who .stated that Indians report that a number of earthquake shocks were felt which were followed by a crashing noise. The next day Indian hunters came to the coast and reporteathat one of the peaks in the Olympic ranige had broken off and slid Into a small valley, almost filling it with dirt and snow.
