Rogers in yesterday's Poet-Intelli gencer regarding the city campaign. Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John B. Hart waa the next apoaker. Mr. Hnrt de nounced the committee and Dr. Jordan with all the impr-tuous force erd power of which he la capable. He said: "I believe that this meeting has a broad scope and purpose—and this is in the direction of pre serving the principles of the People's party, from destruction. The foundation stone of our party is laid in the declaration. 'Equal rights to ail and sp< privileges to none.' Another time-honored principle in the party is that there shall be no se cret meetings of the organisa tion. We object to the plans concocted by the central committee behind closed and battened doors, promulgated in the inter set of a candidate for the mayoralty. Dr. Jordan. He has the central committee in hi* grasp and not one of them can make a turn unless he gives them permission. He owns or at least controls thirty-five mem bers of that committee, and these men are empowered to Bay who shall and who shall not vote at the primary elections of the people's party! ••Saeh UUlinaorablf Methods." "If Dr. Jordan gets the nomination for mayor In an honorable way, then I am for him. But I do not propose to sit Idly by end allow him to further his own Inter est by such dishonor able methods as are being pursued now. I believe In the Im perative mandate and If Dr. Jordan and hi* satellit' * have failed to represent th-» Interest! of the People's party on th«» cen tral committee, then they should be re moved. The city committee as now con stituted has but one purpose, and that Is to deliver the nomination for mayor to Dr. Jordan by any mean* they nee fit to em ploy. f am opposed to such practices, to the proposed disfranchisement of a ma jority of the voters In the party. Let us nay to this Jordan and his cohorts you can not for= " gug rule upon the mass, s of the People's party." (Applause.) Alex R. Jones, John P. Fay, Col. Mc- Keroar, Capt. Atwell and Chairman Mc- Laughlin were the other speakers. Mr. Fay characterised the action of the com mittee as a dastardly outrage. He said that the numbers of the committee were not PopuU*ta. and that the action taken by the committee was un-l'opulistic In Its scope and intention. He urged that a mass meeting of the People's party be called to heap on the h«\»d.> of the ras cally committee the weight of its just Indignation. This was the general tone of the speech es. Little or no reference was made to the attitude of Gov. Rogers. It was made apparent during the evening that many of those who denounced Dr. Jordan were his warmest adherents at the election two years ago. Finally It was moved that a committee be appointed to draft resolutions express ing the f- ntimonta of the meeting. This tarried, and the following committee was appointed by the chair: Eugene Way, George N. Hodgdon, C. I*. He path. John R Hart, W. J. Caldwell. T. 11. MoKer i.an, John I'. Kay, A. K.

Kim m m mm. VARIOUS COWLICA TIOJTS OCT. OB the Other Haad, Frtetlaa Betwees Swedes aad Xorsray Is Be«««l»g More Marked. as 4 the Trssloa Is taM to Afrrasek SMpplsg Point. Copyrighted. IS9S. by the Associated Press. LONDON, Jan. a.—After an unusually prolonged period of extreme tension, all s.;:ns point to an early improvement in, if not a complete solution of. the various International political problems agitating the nerves of Great Britain. The foreign and colonial offices are beginning to see daylight through the darkness which has long been enveloping the far East. West Africa, the upper Nile and India. Unless signs fail and information from the best informed circles is faulty, the Marquis of Salisbury and Joseph Chamberlain, secre tary of state for the colonies, will divide the honors, and Great Britain will secure about all she asks. So far as China is concerned this view, in connection with the speech of Mr. Cur zon. the parliamentary secretary for the foreign office, at Bolton on Tuesday, and the reported acceptance of the British loan, is generally regarded as correct. Mr. Cur zon foreshadowed the probable success of the loan negotiations, the achievement of Great Britain's purpose in keeping the ports free to the whole world, and the maintenance of treaty rights whereby "spheres of Influence are rendered impos sible.'' The Russian proposal of a loan on the same terms as Great Britain was not taken seriously. It is understood that she has not the money herself without draw ing upon her war reserve funds. France is daily showing less inclination to burn her fingers in a game In which, even if successful, Russia would be the only gainer, while Germany appears to have set completely around to the British side. Throughout, the situation lias never been so alarming as sensationalists attempted to paint it. Hence the czar's peaceful assur ances and Lord George Hamilton's state ment in his speech on Tuesday, that rela tions with Russia were entirely satisfac tory, are not surprising. Turning to West Africa an official of the colonial office informs the Associated Press that the impossibility of securing witnesses from the West Coast earlier is the reason for the delay in the Paris ne gotiations. Some of the most Important witnesses arrived only last week, and they are now in I'aris. Thus far, all the Brit ish demands have been conceded nominal ly and "provisionally, pending the result of the convention," but Mr. Chamberlain Is perfectly satisfied that the British c.aims will be upheld, and that the French will be confined westward of a line prolonged from the present Lagos-Dahomey frontier to the Niger, and along the right bank of the Niger to Say. In the meantime, he does not propose to risk being caught napping by a probable adverse decision of the convention, so he is pushing troops and supplies to the front as rapidly as possible. A new regiment of 2.000 Hussars has been enrolled at lbaden during the last few weeks, and detach ments will be sent to the front as soon as the men become efficient. » In regard to the Upper Nile, the interest ing news which Mr. Curzon dropped on Thursday to the effect that the ratiflca tions of the treaty between Great Britain and King Menelik of Abyssinia have been exchanged and that the government hopes shortly to accredit representatives at the Abyssinian court, has given the greatest satisfaction as helping to solve the ques tion of the Upper Nile. The terms of th* treaty will not be divulged until it is pre sented to parliament, but the hints dropped at the colonial office indicate that the agreement is based on the principle that friendly Abyssinia on the Upper Nile is preferable to hostile France. Therefore King Menelik will be allowed to gratify bis ambitions in the equatorial Hinter land in a manner not interfering with th« Anglo-Egyptian plans. As King MeneJik 1# « trader as well ns a warrior, the agreement also contem plates assistance In opening up the coun try, and it is understood the British will acquire the right to traverse Abysslna and other advantages which will become apparent as soon as Khartoum is rc-can t tired. v In the meanwhile young Henry Caven dish. % distant relative of the Duke of Devonshire, is preparing to start again for equatorial Africa, accompanied by Lieut. Andrews, eight British officers and Mr. D nlson. who was the companion of Dr. Donaldson Smith, the American ex plorer. Cavendish will take with him 400 arm. d men and a number of rapid-firing guns. As his objective point is the junction of the White Nile and the Sole,it river at So bat, the purpose of the expedition, it will readily be seen, is to cut ofT the French from Hasboda. which is only a short distance north of Sobat. Possibly Mr. Cavendish may be ai.le to tike advantage of the new treaty with King Menellk and Ret i short cut through AbyesJnla. While Mr. Cavendish Is per sonally defraying the cost cf the expedi tion. it Is known that he has been in fre quent communication with the M irquis of Salisbury through the Duke of Devon shire, so It is sifr to say the expedition is under government auspice*. The news fr m t'hristiania on Friday last that the commission appointed to draw up proposals fe r the better regula tion of the customs between Norway and Sw. den has iven unable to reach an agreement, indicates that the tension be tween Sweden and Norway is fast ajv proachlnK the snapping point, and i- la stated that on the fronts r the arming of N>:h parties is rapidly progressing, both sides preparing for war.

Trie* to Stave 0« the Proeeedlags to Foreclose a Mortgage ou Its Land, Special Dispatch to the Post-Intelligencer. TACOMA, Jan. 29.-The answer filed to day by the Tacoma Land Company In its suit as defendant to the Provident Life and Trust Company, of Philadelphia, shows that the local company will make a des perate effort to win the case. The action is one of foreclosure on all of the property owned here by the land company, which is valued at several million dollars. The heavy interests at issue and the figure cut in the history of Tacoma by the land com pany makes the suit of unusual interest, and the tight which is now begun will be closely watched. There is a tinge of sensationalism !n the answer, which is verified by Manager I. \V. Anderson, and which is made up of twenty-five paragraphs, the majority of which are denials of the allegations in the complaint. It is declared that the fore closure suit is brought by plaintiff solely as the holder of defendant's bonds, and in the interest of plaintiff, and not, as alleged, as the trustee under the mortgage or at the request of any of the holders of any of the remainder of the bonds; further, that on the contrary, the action is against the wishes of the bondholders other than the plaintiff. The company admits that bonds in the sum of $50,000 were sold, that S3O.OUG in bonds were delivered to C. B. Wright as collateral security for his indorsement on a note of the company in that amount; that H'JO.OOO in bonds were delivered to the land company by the plaintiff company as trus tee, and later, at intervals, delivered back to the Provident company as collateral security for notes of the land company, amounting in all to >4oo,Out), upon which in terest was paid to November, lsdC. The company enters a denitl with refer ence to the interest due, claiming it was not in default on this score at the time the suit was begun. The question of taxes, upon which the suit is practically based, is also touched upon in the answer. It Is ■ admitted the taxes for part of ISS3 and all of I>>>J have not been paid, but it is denied that the land company ever agreed with the plaintiff company, as trustee, to pay said taxes. It is denied that anything is now due on the bonds held by plaintiff as collateral security, and it is averred that no bondholders have requested the Provident company to declare due the principal of the bonds, nor have any asked the trustee to bring foreclosure proceedings or enter upon the mortgaged premises and sell the same. The suit may mean a great deal to the operation of the company's plans, how ever it results. The success of the plaln tiif Is equivalent to an entirely new local management, while, should defendants win the case, a new policy in keeping with the changtd conditions resultant upon the outcome of the suit-is not at all improb able. JIDIiE STALLCTP'S COPYIXG BILL. In Tamed Down Beeaase the Expense Wan I unrcrMary. Special Despatch to thi Post-Intelligencer. TACOMA, Jan. 29.—From the action of the finance committee of the city council in refusing to allow the expense of making a copy of the warrant record the bill for which was presented by Assistant City At tyrnty John C. Stallcup, and judging from City Attorney Judson's statement in the matter it appears the chief and his first assistant in the legal department are not on terms of closest intimacy in a business way. Mr. Judson explains that had As sistant Stallcup come to him for informa tion before having this copy made he would have been saved the expense of it and the other incident upon attempting to collect the cost from the city. To the finance committee the city attor ney said that he himself had already two copies of the warrant record, and he saw no need of adding a third copy at an addi tional expense to the city. The fact that this record concerns all the warrant suits and contentions in which the city Is en tangled makes any move tn the matter one of more than passing interest. Cer tain members of the council are rather anxious to learn if the one copy ordered made by Judge Stallcup is the only one copied from the valuable record of late, but th»ir anxiety is made light of by the city attorney, who says there is nothing of a secret nature in this record. He fur ther says he is quite willing to furnish any warrant holder of importance, mean ing one who holds »ny considerable num ber of warrants, with a copy of the city's record. His plans in the w arrant suits provide for the city assisting any holder of good war rants in recovering their money, rather than in opposing them. Hence, he de clares. that the city's warrant record may !>t considered an open book to any such innocent holders of valid warrants. CITY AM) toivrv M)l \IIDI,E.
