Walker Ordered to Hold HImMlf In
lUadineM tow Action.
Washington, Not. 28. While It Is con
sidered doubtful that tha attitude of
Great Britain will continue unyielding
In the face of the earneet representa
tion made fey Secretary Gresham it to
incontrovertable that the United States
to fully prepared to insist upon a full
recognition of the rights on the Ameri
can continent which It baa claimed and
maintained for the past seventy yeara.
The moat important development In the
attitude to-day waa the action of the
preeldent communicating to Bear Ad-
mlral Walker intimating that In caae
of necessity for mobilizing an Amerl-
oan fleet on the Central American coast
he should hold himself In readiness to
assume command. This disposes of the
kossId that President Cleveland had
been displeased with Admiral Walker
or that he had ever doubted the officer's
ability. It is understood that Admiral
Meade will be ordered to transfer his
flair from the New York in caae the as
pert of affairs becomes more threaten
ing, and that Admiral Walker will join
ship at Key West. The gulf squadron,
according to this plan, would -become
separate and distinct from the North At
lantic station. Which Admiral Meade
would continue to command.
The ships that could be assembled
within ten days under Admiral Walker
in the West Indies are the New Tork,
Columbia, San Francisco, Marblehead,
Castlne and Montgomery, leaving the
Minneapolis, Miantonomah, Raleigh,
Atlanta, Cincinnati, with the Maine and
Texas .and torpedo boats under Ad'
mlral Meade.

It 'Is Understood that to-day's dis
patches i from' Amibassador Bayard show
that behind. Great Britain's refusal to
approve the new Nicaraguan local gov-.
erniment at Blueflelds the namsnment
of British Vloe Consul Hatch plays a
somewhat prominent part. In the ear
lier conflicts between the Nlcaraguans
and the, Mosquitos commencing last
. February, Great Britain and the United
States succeeded In preventing exces
sive measures. It was while this coun-
try, with England, was restraining
Nicaragua that the inhabitants of the
Mosquito territory under Chief Clar
ence overthrew the temporary Nlcara
guan military rule. At that moment
the United States was recognizing the
full sovereignty of Nicaragua over the
Mosquito territory in terms more ex
plicit than had hitherto been used in
negotiations based on the Clayton-Bul-wer
treaty, and General Barrios had
been received by England as a Nicara
guan envoy largely upon the represen-
tations of the United States to negotiate
a convention which would place Great
Britain In an attitude similar to that
of the United States.
Nicaragua crushed out the Clarence
rebellon by drastic measures. Clarence
and many of his supporters fled, but
others, inolvUns; several Americans and
Englishmen, were arrested and banish-
ed. While the legality of this action
. was never impeached the United States
regretted the proceedings as it was cal
culated to embarrass the negotiations
which would practically abrogate the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty. Among the
prisoners banished ; was British Vice
Consul Hatch, who, however, had not
been recognized by Nicaragua, and J.
a Lampton and E. D. Wlltbank. Amer
icans, 'inese three men were active
participants in the rebellion.
campion ana j wutbank have since
been pardoned and permitted to return
to Blueflelds. It is understood that the
Nlcaraguans- have been unaffected bv
the repeated and persistent demands of
British Minister Gosling to extend a
similar pardon to Mr. Hatch, and
that this Is one, of the real causes of
. Great Britain' present attitude. Mr.
Hatch owned, property at Blueflelds
whlcH . was confiscated. The question
of tha right of Nicaragua to recognize
Mr. Hatch as a conaularfflcer is also
10 oe invoivea- - -
United States Minister Baker has
' Been Instructed to exercise his good
offices in. inducing the government at
Managua to- restore Mr. Hatch's be
longings and recognizing him as vice
'. consul, with' this assurance that the
United States will use every proper ef
fort to prevent any future successful
resistance to Nicara guan sovereignty
at Blueflledev. Great Britain meanwhile
to, give an implied guarantee that Mr.
1 Hatch' would not be active in any fur
ther conspiracy to restore the rule of
- Clarence. The United States could well
undertake1 this responsibility on .ac
count of the Interests she had at state
in securing the. successful, accomplish
ment of 3arrlos mission In England,
which could not fail, to result in giv
ing the United States and Incontestable
title to any rateroceanio canal that
might b built over the Lake Nicara'

Secretary Gresham Is confident that
serious trouble will be avoided, but
nevertheless the United States has
been preparing for emergencies. It Is
stated that Admiral Walker has been
engaged for two months In familiar
izing himself with the Central Ameri
can question. It Is said he has planned
In case of emergency a scheme of oper
ations with the eastern entrance of the
proposed Nicaraguan Canal and our
gulf ports as a basis and, further, has
arranged a program for the move
ments of the Pacific squadron of nine
vessels. The navy department Intends
to send Bennington to the west coast
of Nicaragua In a few days. No other
vessels will be sent Immediately, al
though every available vessel will be
in readiness to proceed to sea upon re
ceipt of telegraphic brders.
The British North Atlantic fleet con
sists of ten vessels. Of these the Blake,
the only one of considerable fighting
power, was at last ' accounts, at Hall
fax with several other vessels. There
are two small British cruisers In the
West Indies, but the Marblehead and
Montgomery would easily outclass
them. It Is the custom of the British
fleet to rendezvous in the West Indies
every winter, and during the present
winter It Is the announced policy of the
United States to maintain a fleet of
superior strength in the same waters.

Indians Driving Out Settlers In a County In
Salt Lake, Utah, Nov. 28.-The sher
iff of San Juan county, Utah, has called
upon the governor for assistance In
driving out BOO Utes who have entered
the state bringing with them thou
sands of sheep and cattle. They state
they were sent by Indian Agent Day,
who told them they had a right to oc
cupy these land. They have driven
the settlers from the grazing lands and
announce that they Will fight rather
than return to Colorado. About one
hundred Navajo Indians have also left
their reservation in this territory and
seem to have formed an alliance with
these Utes. There are not sufficient
white settlers' in the country ? to . cope
With the: Indians, Who are in a bellig
erent mood, and the settlers are getting
alarmed. . '
' Governor West immediately notified
the secretary of the interior and asked
that troops be sent to drive the Indians
back to Colorado.

Town, City and School Governments
Should be Consolidated on Bualnet'
1'rlnclplee Remarks by Judge Baldwin,
. M. Thompson and Ex-Mayor Peek.
The consolidation of the city, town
and school governments was the' all
Important subject of consideration at
the meeting last night of the special
committee of the court of common coun
cil, which Is hearing the arguments of
the oitlzen on the proposed revised
charter as recommended by the special
committee appointed by the legislature.
All the members of the committee were
present, and the aldermanlc chamber
was well filled with prominent citizens
and taxpayers.
Shortly after the meeting had been
called to order Attorney Charles Kleiner
arose and read a number of letters
from Prof. H. E. Newton of Tale,, F. C.
Lum, Prof. Fairbanks, A. B. HlU.Harry
W. Asher, Rev. Dr. Newman Smyth,
W. T. Fields, Septimus C. Fleetwood,
and others. All expressed themselves
as heartily In favor of the consolidation
of the present three headed government,
and endorsed In the main the prinolpal
features of the proposed new charter.
When Attorney KHener had finished
reading the letters Prof. Fisher of Tale
arose and In a few brief but able re
marks favored the consolidation of the
city, town and school governments.and
recommended the adoption of the new
dharter in its entirety, as proposed by
the legislative committee.
L. Wheeler Beecher of Westvllle stated
that In his opinion the proposed plan of
consolidation was the most equitable
and desirable of any that had yet been
suggested. He said that even though
there were a few minor defects in the
plan as proposed, still in the main he
approved of consolidation under the
terms of the new charter. This from
Mr. Beecher was all the more surpris
ing, owing to the fact that he has al
ways been a strong opponent of any
plan of consolidation.
Judge Hobart L. Hotchkiss of the
common pleas court was the next speak
er of the evening. Judge Hotchkiss re
sides, in Westvllle. He saidr "Under
the present charter there Is the greatest
possible amount of Irresponsibility and
laxity. Every official Is amenable to no
one, and crookedness, were there any,
in the several departments would be
gxtremely hard to detect.- The present
system of collecting taxes is notoriously
defective, arid the : dhly reason that
money enough to start a bank 'has not
been stolen from the city government
frs In consequence of the honesty of the
tax officials." Judge Hotchkiss also ar
gued against a new assessment and
strongly favored having the assistant
Judge of the city court appointed by the
judge himself. In reply to a question
by Attorney F. S. Bishop as to whether
or not he thought the tax rate too
high in the district the judge stated
emphatically that he did.
Ex-Alderman W. E. Chandler stren
uously opposed giving the mayor as
much power as la recommended by the
proposed charter and argued that the
power should be distributed and not
centralized. In support of his position
he cited the case of the city of Chica
go, which, he said, had been made near
ly bankrupt by following a plan sim
ilar In Many respects to that proposed
by the new charter. He, however, en
dorsed the proposed plan of a common
board of finance for the city, town and
school districts, the appointment of a
comptroller and a new assessment.
Ex-Mayor Henry F. .Peck ' said
"Fault has been found with the. new
charter because it gives too much pow-,
er to an .official. With increased re
sponsibility of each voter, better' men
will be put on guard,' and if there is no
provision for bringing derelict and dis
honest officials to Justice, they ; will be
Impeached before the courts. . .
Joel A. Sperry also expressed himself
as strongly In favor of consolidation.
He acknowledged that the proposed new
charter was not perfect in every re
spect, still It was, in nls opinion, a
step in the right direction, and the ma
jority of the provisions were excellent.
Charles G. Klmberly alsoT favored
consolidation, but did not think the tax
rate could be successfully made Jess
than four mills. He strongly favored
a reassessment and was of the opinion
that -the- residents of outlying districts,
who wanted to pay taxes only .for roads.
and bridges, would not be paying their
share. ' . . V,
General E. E. Bradley favored the
consolidation of the three-headed gov
ernment and the adoption of the pro
posed new charter. He argued that
the present municipal machinery -was
too intricate and that the new charter
held officials directly responsible, and
could be brought to trial quickly. J Said
he: "The new charter Is a long" step
in the right direction.; v We " demand
honest and economical government and;
the more we divorce local from nation
al elections the better off we' shall be.1
I am; heartily in ;favor of putting the
date of the municipal elections off until
spring of the year.'l He also favored!
giving the mayor more power ,
At. this point .Professor -Chandler,
called General Bradley's attention ;tq
the letter written by Thomas Jefferson;
from Montlcello containing that famous
saying, "If you want good government
don't put too much power into the
hands of one man." .
Wlegand Schiein - strongly favored
consolidation, and ex-Alderman 8. 8.
Thompson was in favor of the new
charter in its entirety. , and . thono-ht
that under It more efficient work could
be done. . .-. ' " ;
Remarks were1 also made by Attorney,
Charles Kleiner, Samuel- E, Avis and
Judge Simeon B. Baldwin. The latter
advanced as a reawn for consolidation
that while It was an easy matter to
float city bonds, financiers were apt to
fight shy of town and -school dlstriot
bonds. , - . t:
Alderman Hitler suggested that at
least one member of the board of
finance should be a director of the freo
publlo library. . '
Friday afternoon the committee will
hold an executive seseton and Saturday
afternoon they will meet Vlth the mem
bers of the legislative committee.

In the1 arly spring of 1892 I was In
the interior of Russia, and while there
received an intimation that upon my
return to the capital the Czarowitz
would be pleased to see me. Accord
ingly, when I arrived at St. Peters

the day following I could present my

one o'clock I reached the palace, and
entering its gates, was admitted and

where I had to wait some moments.
In a few moments there came
through the opposite door a trimly
