At the samp tlmo It ".-as a point on whleh neither side np pparpd to bp ready to yield. Onp of the dispatefies from the front, after Kpecifyine; that this different^ has aris? en, added that It was believed a settle? ment would bp reaehed before today closed. General Shafter himself summed up the situation by saying: "It cannot be possible that there will be a fail? ure in completing arrangements." No question whatever has been raised as to the surrender itself. Not only bus General Total agreed to it. "hut this agreement had been ratified by General Blanco, at Havana, and by the Span? ish authorities at Madrid. General Greely received another dis? patch at G P. M.. containing the infor? mation that Colonel Allen had landed the shore end of the slsnnl corps cable nt Playa fr.rtn the cable steamer Adrla. Colonel Allen was not allowed to land at Playa on account of the Adria com? ing from an infected district. All were well on board, but no one was allowed ashore. Colonel Allen returns this ? . evening to Baiquiri to repair the French cable at that point and estab? lish regular communication between Playa nnd Santiago de Cuba, so that the army will be In telegraphic com? munication with Washington as soon as the city is surrendered. The perplexing problem now to be solved is how to carry out 'the pledge made by General Shafter to remove the Spanish soldiers who surrendered to Spain. It would have been no easy undertaking to remove the 20.two men across the Atlantic under the best r.ondltons. but the re? ports that indicated the exist? ence of yTtellow fever among the Span? iards threatened all kinds of difficul? ties. After all. It was decided to be only a matter of money, and if the price offered is large enough steamship lines could doubtless be found to un? dertake the transportation. At the best several weeks nrobably will hp r? rtuired to remove the Spaniards, so that it will be npcessary to maintain a considerable proportion of the Amer? ican army in the neighborhood for some time. Still, being under no care to pro? tect themselves from the foe. the Amer? ican troops can be so disposed as to make themselves very comfortable in comparison with what they have un? dergone. The surgeons' reports describe the disease of a mild type, and it is said this will readily yield to a change of location Into higher and cooler ground. At 1:15 o'clock this (Saturday) morn? ing when Adjutant General Corbln left the War Department for his home, he was yet without definite information from General Shafter concerning the surrender of Santiago. In accordance with the decision reached at the conference with the President he sent instructions to Gen? eral Shafter that nothing but aii un - conditional surrender by General 1 oral would be satisfactory to this govern^ ment. * . 4 . , In view of Shaffer's last dispatch no fear is felt that the negotiations for the surrender of the forces in Santiago city will not be prosecuted to a success? ful conclusion. General Tora!, U is known, at first insisted that his men lie permitted to carrv their arms with them to Spain. This concession Gene? ral Shafter declined to grant. Toral has modified his demand regarding the arms and has presented a petition that the arms taken from bis men tip re? turned to Spain with the troops. In the statement of Secretary Alger given above, it has been denied by the gov? ernment. General Shafter estimates that there are from 12,000 to 1H.000 men in San? tiago and nearly as many more in the ' province outside''Of the ctty. It Is be? lieved that the delay in the negotia? tions is made necessary in order to se? cure the surrender of the outlying gar? risons, some of which may question Toral's authority to surrender them without definite instructions to that ef? fect from Madrid. NO MORE CONCESSIONS. Spain Must Surrender According to Our Terms, iRv Telegraph.) WASHINGTON. July m.?After an extended conference with the lJresid. nt tonight, at which three other members ?f the cabinet were present, Secretary Alger eaid: _ ? "The situation Is Just this. The Span lards at Santiago are pr.-pared to sur? render but thr-y want to carry their arms. We have determined to grant no such concession nor any concession except the generosity of Ibis govern* ' ment to transport them to Spain." Secretarv Alger was asked If it was ? no* the expectation that when It was known that no other terms would be granted the surrender would take place, ! and he replied that such was the case. In any event no other concession would be afforded by this government. It was nearly 1 o'clock when the con? ference at the White House adjourned. Beside Secretary Alger there were pres? ent Secretaries Biiss and Wilson and Postmaster General Emory Smith. Ad? jutant General Corbin was present dur? ing the last hour of the conference. Secretary Alger did not say how much time would be allowed the enemy to reach a conclusion, but it is known that the administration will make It very short and submit to no further parley with General Toral. The next move is surrender upon the terms which the United States government proposes or Immediate attack upon the Spanish forces by the army and navy. BEGINNING OF THK END. Grave Things in Store for tin- Spanish | Monarchy. MADRID. July 15.?The government has published a decree suspending throughout Spain the rights of individ? uals as guaranteed bv the constitu? tion. This is believed to be a blow aimed at the Carllsts. but It has made a'very had Impression, creating much dissat? isfaction, especially among the Liberals and Republicans, who are disposed to regard askance any Turther encroach? ments of the crown upon the rights of the people. Even conservative men are beginning to think that the beginning of the end has been reached and that the imme? diate future has grave things In store for the Spanish monarchy. This suspension of individual rights is tantamount to a declaration of mar? tial law. The decree ndds that the frovernment will render an account to parliament of the use It may make of this meas? ure. This is n proof that Spain Is now ready to sue for peace, ftnd also that negotiations to that end are actually in progress. The government wishes to have full power to suppress all evi? dences of discontent or rebellion. The Carllsts are furious and .are sure to attempt trouble. (me official expressed the conviction that'official overtures will be drawn before Sunday. Therp Is everv reason to believe that France has offered Its service to Spain. Senor Sagasta says that Spain wants pence, but it must be an honorable neace. as Spain deserves. The army Is anxious to resist to the last, hut the frovernment cannot consent to a use? less sacrifice. "Had we our fleet," said he. "It would be different." ON THE DIAMOND.

Prubnbly the cheapest railroad In tho world was built Id Oregon in 1872. Dur? ing the preceding year the Northern Pa? eilic Railroad company surveyed the line between Portland and Olympia, terminat? ing at the latter place, but only for u short time. Then it was moved away to T? coma, 35 miles farther north. At that the people of Olympia arose In indignation, called a meeting, and after vigorously discussing ways and means re? solved that, although the railroad had been both given ami t.-tken away, they wero not hound to submit: as unto the Lord, but wotdd build one for themselves and build it with voluntary subscriptions of labor and in iterial. One bright morning in April the Olym? pia brass band halted at the corner of Main and Fourth streets. ("barley Granger's bay tnulo Hetty fell In behind. Then came the officials of both city and county, led by the governor and followed by the citi? zens, until the whole procession was hall a mlio. In length. They marched to a high hlulT above the cnpitol building, and there the mayor of the city and the governor both made speeches, and a prayer was of? fered. The first, sod was turned, and the grading of the road began in earnest. One day in every week was set apart ns field day, when the city and county ofnciuls came out as at first, the merchants olosed their stores, and mechanics shut their shops, and young men and old men, \x>yt and Indians plied the spado with hearty will, while tho womon spread the tables with all things needed for a midday feast. Week after week thu work went on, ami the roiul stretched out- past tho timber skirting the upper end of Puget sound, past the falls of Tumwater, between the Indian mounds of Mound Prairie, through half a mile of timber to Rush Prairie, more timbor, moro prairio, across wide and shallow Scatter creek, 10 miles to Tenlno. Then tho ties were made and laid and not u dollar had yet been asked for. Rut the time hod couio to buy the rolling stock, and subscriptions cumu pouring in until everything was bought und ready. .What a day it was in the history of Olympia when the first train was sturu*! ovor tho hard carucd little railroad 1 Open cars were hung with evergreen, and again tlie people all came out, with music und rejoicing, this time to rido und not to work. Many of tho old soldiers who labored faithfully to build that little road, among them Genural Milroy, who was known all through tho civil war us Gray Kugle, have crossed the silent river, but tho road they built Is still in use, and old settlers point to It with prido, the- roud the hardy pio? neers made with their own hands, the cheapest railroad in tho world.?San Fran oisco Chrouhila_ Wolfieley Iti Canada. "It is Interesting to recall tho circum? stance," says tlie London Chronicle, "that there was some thought of making Colo nel Wolseley, as ho then was, lieutenant governor of Manitoba, the new Canadian province, in which he suppressed the Red River rebellion more than u quarter of a century ago. Rut the ideu was not carried into effect. "Fort Gurry, from which tho rebels lied on the approach of Colonel Wolseley, has now developed Into the nourishing city of Winnipeg, the metropolis of Manitoba. Various relics of Wolseley's march from Fort William to Fort Gurry arc still shown to tourists In that quarter of Canada." According to the New England Histor? ical Genealogical society, only L'9 familie? that came to Kow England from Grunt Britain wore entitled to bring armorial seurlngs with them. a ?fapilneao Xnimccr He found the great room up stairs half full of people, who were seated In a semi? circle at one end, writes Mrs.- Mimoli C. Fr?ser In The Pall Mall Magazine. Char? terls was a little late, and the rest hod be? gun the indescribable meal which is called Japanese dinner. All tho strangest prod? ucts of earth, regardless of precedence, hustle ouch other on tho small square ta? ble before the guest and little by little overflow its bounds and are planed on the floor around him?a growing nebula of tiny plates, many of which he will not touch if ho fee wise. What strikes him first perhaps is the uncanny familiarity of somo of them. If this Is really his first visit to little Japan, where could he possibly have seen three pink shells lying on golden straw in a scarlet plate or a largo white fish, with bo- , seeching countenance, comfortably put to bod among sprouting rushes, all apparent? ly growing out of tho meshes of that fairy basket work? Where, in the name of san? ity, hus he had sugar peonies and chrysan? themums done to tho life double thoir nat? ural sizo or oc.topl and red crabs artisticel ly chasing each other on plates of corru? gated glass? Is this the stuff that dreams aro made off Then ho remembers. Of course they have all come out of tho em broideries and off tho lacquered tables of his childhood. Tho dinner is an object lesson in exquisite arrangements of form und color and should bo rogarded as such. Viewed as food it is distinctly unsatisfactory and fur, far too satisfying. Tho impression on rising stiff und dizzy from the floor is that of having watched a kaleidoscope and swallowed Mont Blanc. Ancient Hludoo Guilds. Till tho time of Vishnu's lawbook, third century A. D., no one of these guilds appears as pre-eminent, but in this work "metalworkers and smiths of silver and gold" uro mentioned particularly, though this pre-eminence may be due to accident. But tho circumstance is interesting, be? cause exactly these guilds became the chief guilds of ordinary towns und bo cause they were very likely the first to bund together in self defense all the guilds originating in this way, but tho gold? smiths perhaps llrfet of all, since the old luw in regard to smiths was so extremely severe us to call for some union on their part.. The old law in regard to a goldsmith found guilty of defrauding was bused on thu principle that a goldsmith can most easily deceive, anil that when bo does so ho is "tho vilest,;bf sinners." Tho king is thereforu directed to see to it that u guld sinitli found-- t;uilty of cheating shall be chopped up iuto very small pieces with sharp knives.'^whereits ordinary thieves or cheats uro merely beheaded. By uniting together und ostracizing a guilty member tho guild could indict a punishment which, if it was not so severe, probably hud a still more deterrent effect.-?Yale Review. Dignity and TroueoM.

The officials of the Internal revenue department have decided to cellect no tax on bunker coal. Collector Bowden, of Norfolk, in his official capacity, called at the Treas? ury Department in regard to the pay? ment of the $5 stamp tax on all cargoes of 200 tons and In excess thereof. iMs tax is now being collected on bunker coal and Collector Bowden thought this was excessive and unreasonable. He took the ground that 'bunker' coal was not properly a cargo, and soon brought the treasury officials to his way of thinking. He secured a de? cision to the effect that the tax should not be collected on bunker coal, which will be a great relief to the Newport News shippers. CONDITIONS OF PEACE. NEW YOKE, July 15.?The Herald's Washington correspondent says: Independence for Cuba. . The transfer of Porto Rico to the Uni? ted States in exchange tor the Philip? pines. A coaling station In the Islands for the United States. Spain is wililng to make these con? cessions to obtain peace, according to dispatch received by Prfesident McKin? ley from a semi-official source. Administration officials with whom 1 talked after they had learned ot the contents of the dispatch Informed me that an official proposition embracing i these terms would be accepted by the United States. Thus, if President Mc Kinley's informant is correct, peace in the near future Is an absolute certain '^His dispatch stated that the Spanish ministry at a meeting yesterday had definitely determined to abandon the struggle and had decided to sue for peace on the terms set forth. In some circles I find a disposition to accept the information as entirely trustworthy, while In others there Is some doubt. There seems to be a gen? eral impression among administration officials, however, that the prospect of the commencement of the negotiations for the cessation of the war is extreme? ly bright. _ DISMAL DIVERSION.
