The New Spanish Minister Encour ages the Scheme. Negotiations in Progress With the Argen tine Republic and Other South Amerioan Countries. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Nov. 14. —Some interest ing remarks bearing upon reciprocity were exchanged today on the occasion of the reception of Senor Guanes, the new Spanish minister to the United States, by President Harrison. Sefior Guanes said: "The international ex change of the products and manufac tures of the United States and Spain, is surely one of the neeescary laws that are based upon the instincts and uni versal needs of the present day, and the greater the difference between their cus toms, dispositions and the productions of their labor, so much more necessary is it for nations to come closer together and increase.their exchanges. To main tain these interests and to contri bute to their development, shall be the object of my most solicitous care. President Harrison replying said : "It is most gratifying that in thus entering upon your mission you express, in the name of your soverign and the Spanish nation, a warm desire for continued har mony of relations and intimacy of inter course between the United States and Spain. Inspired by like sentiments, I count upon your promised aid in de veloping larger relations and closer ties of amity and commerce, which both na tions desire for their reciprocal ad vantage." Cuba* Plea for Reciprocity. The department of state has received a dispatch from Consul General Wil liams at Havana, stating that the chair men of various business associations have been requested by the government to appoint a committee" to go to Spain and report their views on the negotia tion of a reciprocity treaty with the United States. He also encloses a trans lation from an editorial of the leading Havana paper, strongly favoring reci procity, and taking to task the Spanish government for pronouncing the peti tions imprudent, and as tending to encourage the Yankees to be more exacting. The editorial goes on to say that the United States government is in posses sion of most exact information concerning Cuban affairs, and that the information in the possession of Secretary Blame is of so decisive a character as to enable him to say to Spain: "Accede, agree, as is just, to my policy of commercial reciprocity, or I will sink the sugar plantations of Cuba." The editorial adds that the day this prime industry is lost, all minor indus tries will be lost with it. "All other in dustries," it says, "live and flourish because we plant cane, make sugar and sell it to the United States. "Blame knows this, and acts accordingly. Our campaign had to be undertaken." Blame Working; South America. Minister Pitkin has arrived from the Argentine Republic, and it is believed he brings with him a treaty on the basis of one for reciprocity between ihe United States and Argentine. Minister Conger will make a reciprocity treaty with Bra zil —his first work there. Minister Romero of Mexico has been a good deal in consultation with Secretary Blame, and it is believed on this subject. Secre : tary Blame is actively engaged in con sulting the representatives of the vari ous South American countries on the matter. A STITCH IN TIME. Troops Massed to Prevent an Indian Outbreak. Washington, Nov. 14.—Late advices from Pine Ridge agency, South Dakota, are to the effect that" the excitement among the Indians on account of the new Messiah, is rapidly increasing. Some apprehension is felt that if active measures are not taken by the govern ment, a serious outbreak may occur dur ing the early spring, or even before. It is said, however, that the government has the whole situation in hand, and will at once and effectually crush out the very first signs of an uprising, Chicago, Nov. 14. —The Daily News's Washington special asserts that, on the recommendation of General Miles, the war department has ordered troops from several points in the vicinity of the Sioux reservation to take the field at once. There will doubtless be a repeti tion of the scene enacted several years ago, when General Sheridan massed a large force of United States troops near Port Reno, Indian territory, and pre vented a threatened outbreak. The war department now proposes to make a sim ilar demonstration against the northern Indians, and will spend no time in par leying with them. JAY GOULD'S PLAINT. He Says the Western and Southwestern Roads are Losing: Money. New York, Nov. 14. —In the Sun, to morrow, will appear a letter addressed to the editor from Jay Gould, in which the writer says there is a group of roads known as the Western and Southwest ern systems, traversing the most fertile and rapidly developing territory in the United States; and that the stock and bonds of these properties are held by thousands of investors in the west, and upon the prosperity of these roads many small investors depend for dividends upon which to live. "Something over eighteen months ago," writes Gould, "during a period of great depression, three great banking houses invited the presidents of these roads to meet. The result of that meeting was the forma tion of the so-called presidents' agree ment, and it may interest you to know the difference in the net earnings of this group of roads, as between the rates which were established and maintained for several months after that agreement, and the rates that have prevailed under the loose and disorganized state of affairs that has existed since the agreement was broken. I estimate the total num ber of tons moved one mile annually by this group to be sixteen billion. Tho auditor oi one of these roads has fur nished me a statement showing the dif ference of rates under the presidents' agreement and the present rates, which amounts to 1 4-10 mills per ton per mile. Applying this difference, 1 4-10 mills, to 16,000,000,000 grosß annual tons, one mile, gives the startling figure of $22, --400,000 annual decrease in the net earn ings Of this system of roads, as between their operation under the presidents' agreement and the loose methods now prevailing. Under this condition of things it is hoped the bankers can be induced to call the presidents together again, with the assurance that they will have the whole mass of investors behind them." EXECUTIVE CLEMENCY, Governor Waterman Pardons a Lot of Convicts. Sacramento, Nov. 14. —Governor Waterman today pardoned the follow ing Archie Favir.gcr, convicted of burglary in the second degree in Shasta, and sentenced to four years' imprison ment; Edward Jones, tonvicted m San Francisco of entering a house of ill-fame, and sentenced to 250 days; Hugo Con ant, convicted in Sierra county of rob bery, and sentenced forty years; Charles Fitzgerald, robbery in Santa Clara county, sentenced two years; Thomas Langen, manslaughter, in San Francisco, sentence commuted from ten to five years; C.

Director-General Davis Snubbed by the Local Directory — President Palmer Threatens to Resign—Salary Question. Ciiicago,N t oy. 14.—With tho approach of the next meeting of the world's fair commission, rumors of trouble ahead are numerous. Director-General Davis feels that he has been slighted by the local directory. It was his understand ing that he should have the appoint ment of his sub-chiefs, but the directory has already appointed two of them, without consulting him. The opposi tion to the scheme of the local directory to place three or more fine buildings on the lake front, is growing rapidly. In the meeting of the congressional com mittee, and the executive committee of the national comniission, today, after an informal discussion of various matters, Commissioner Martindale of Indiana said he believed he voiced the sentiment of the commissioners generally when he said the restrictions thrown around the use of Jackson and Washington parks by the South Park commissioners must be withdrawn. At a subsequent meeting of the national committee on buildings and grounds, several commissioners as serted that the national board would in sist that there be no more than two buildings erected on the lake front. President Palmer said on the subject: "I shall resign if the plan outlined at the recent meeting of the local directors is insisted upon." The congressional world's fair com mittee began an inquiry this morning, questioning the members of the execu tive committee of the world's fair com mission as to the salaries paid the various officers and the duties of the The American Hereford Cattle Breed ers' association tonight passed a resolu tion protesting against the efforts of the local directory to place a large part of the world's fair on the lake front, in vi olation of their agreement, and asking the national commission to locate the fair on a single site. The Columbian Dairy association adopted resolutions requesting the dif ferent state legislatures to set aside a certain part of whatever funds are ap propriated for the world's fair, to be used for a creditable dairy display by each state. THE ICEMAN'S HOPE. O'Sullivan Expected to Turn States' Evi- dence on tlie Cronin Murder. Chicago Nov. 14. —The Evening Jour nal has published a story in regard to the alleged confession ofjl'atrick O'Sullivan, now in the state penitentiary, for the murder of Dr. Cronin. It says: O'Sul livan has made no actual confession. The fact that O'Sullivan was a dupe of the real conspirators, has been known to the state's attorney a long time, and to O'Sullivan's friends ever since his ar rest. If he gets a new trial, the state's attorney believes that he will make a confession and reveal the names of the conspirators as a witness for the state. If he does not get a trial, it is expected he will make a confession in the liOjC of having bis sentence commuted. A BACK DOWN. All But the "Q" Road willing to Accept the V. P.'s Terms. Chicago, Nov. 14. —A vote of the members of the Western Freight asso ciation today showed that every road ex cept the Burlington was ready to back down and accept the terms of the Union Pacific. The question as to whether action could be taken without the unan imous consent of all the lines, was re ferred to the chairman. The Burlington peoplesay if the Union Pacific succeeds in forcing new divisions on its Omaha connections, the Burlington will con tinue to exchange traffic on the old basis. Militia Men Arrested. Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov. 14.—Nine of the militia men concerned in Wednes day's light, in which Student Dennison was Killed, have been arrested and war rants will be issued for more tomorrow. Several students and militia men are still laid up; two may die.

CONSUMPTION CURE. Professor Koclrs Wonderful Discovery. Valuable Contribution to Med ical Science. His Medicine Is a Sure Remedy for Tuberculosis. Consumption Can Be Curod if Treated in Time—A Olimmer of Hope for One-Lungers. Associated Press Dispatches. Berlin, Nov. 14. —Professor Koch publishes an article in the Deutsche Mediginische Wochenschrift, on the cure of tuberculosis. Professor Koch says he is yet unprepared to indicate the source from which the curative mat ter is derived, and the mode of prepar ation, for the reason that experimental work is still in progress. He states that the curative lymph itself, can be ob tained from Dr. Libbertz, 28 Luenebour ger strasse, Berlin. The lymph is described as consisting of a brownish, transparent liquid, so pre pared as to bs proof against deteriora tion. When diluted with water for use, the matter is liable to decay. It is necessary, therefore. that the attenua tions be perfectly sterilized by heat and preserved in a wadding covering, or pre pared with a solution of phenol, fifty per cent, strong. When taken into the stomach the curative matter proves to have no effect. It must be applied sub-cutaneously by means of a valveless syringe, which must be rinsed with absolute alcohol, and kept in a perfectly asceptic condition. Twenty-five hundredths of acubiccen timeter intensely affected a healthy man. who was subjected to the experiment, while two centimetersappliedtoaguinea pig had little effect. Prof. Koch in jected twenty-five hundredths of a cubic centimeter under the skin of his own arm, and within a few hours experienced a contraction of the limbs, and a marked feeling of lassitude ; at tho same time he felt a desire to cough, together with dif ficulty of breathing. These symptoms increased ripidly, and in five hours he experienced an unusually violent rigor, accompanied with nausea, and the tem perature of his body rose rapidly. After twelve hours the symptoms began to abate, and the next day his body re sumed its normal degree. Heaviness of the limbs and a languid feeling con tinued for several days, however. The same results follow when the fluid' is applied to diseased persons suffering from other than tubercular affections, but in persons affected with tubercul osis, the same quantity produces a gen eral and local reaction. The reaction can best be observed in those whose af fection is visible, as, for instance, per sons suffering from lupus. Within a few hours after injection the lupus sores begin to swell, and finally assume a dark brown tint. The fever subsides, the swelling decreases and the sores gener ally disappear, scabs of matter falling off the latter. Portions of the skin not clearly recognized as lupus are not af fected. It is asserted with confidence that the remedy may be considered auxiliary to diagnosis, and in doubtful cases incipient consumption can be diagnosed by its Professor Koch expresses the belief that his remedy will certainly prove a cure for incipient consumption ; wheth er, however, the cure will be final and definite, has not definitely been proven ; further experiments are necessary to de termine. The remedy can only influence living tubercular tissue. It has no effect upon dead tissue, and produces no effect upon tissues which have already been killed by the application of the remedy. It is quite possible that such remedy may still contain living tuberculosis bacilli, which may again invade the adjacent living tissue. It follows, therefore, that tubercular tissue that is still living must be the first to decay. When this has been accomplished, every effort must be made to remove the dead matter by sur gery. Where this ie impossible, and secretion can only slowly proceed, the living tissue must be protected by the continued application of the remedy. The remedy is applied in cumulative doses ; a small quantity at first suffices to produce strong action; but as each succeeding injection causes the disap pearance of a quantity of tissue, capable of reaction, increased doses are neces sary until the patient experiences as little reaction as non-tuberculous people. Patients who have been treated in the early stages of phthisis, haVe all been freed from morbid symptoms within from four to six weeks," when they may be regarded as healed. Consumptives with large cavities in their lungs will probably derive benefit from the new Remedy only in exceptional cases. In all cases Professor Koch emphasizes the necessity of early treatment. Only in the incipient stages of disease, he de clares, can the remedy fully develop its efficacy. He deprecates the mechanical and indiscriminate application of the remedy, holding it preferable that the treatment should be applied in suitable institutions, where careful observation is possible. There is a regular exodus from the Mediterranean shores of consumptives to Berlin. Many American doctors are coming to hear Koch's lecture Novem ber 2Gth. lIIE SEATTLE MCRDEIt. detectives Scouring the Country for the Murderers. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 14. —Detectives are scouring the country for Tony Mil ler, and a man named T. Johnston, both of whom are thought to be implicated in the murder and robbery of Olif Ellingson, a Swede, whose mutilated body was found on the shores of Lake Washington, yesterday morning. John ston was last seen with Ellingson on a cable car, going to hake Washington, on the morning of the murder, and let ters and a photograph found in a valise of the deceased, direct suspicion to Mil ler. The chief of police has telegraphed to all the towus in the state, aud states south, giving a description of both men, and asks for their arrest and detention. All the suspicious charac ters in town are being arrested. Last night about twenty-five were arrested, searched and jailed. It is thought the murderers cannot possibly escape. A policeman who was sent out to Lake Washington to look over the ground at daylight thig morning, found, about twenty feet from the place where the body of the dead man was discovered, a bloody sling shot with which the first blow was very probably struck. Ex citement among the working class is intense, and if the murderer is caught he will probably be strung up by the angry Swedes. California Fruit Shipments. San Francisco, Nov. 14.—The ship ments of California fruit, overland, for the first ten months of the year were as follows: Canned goods, 70,140,000; dried fruit, 33,966,660 pounds; ripe fruit, 84,586,200 pounds; raisins, 13,976, --000 pounds; total, 202,660,100 pounds; in 1889, 131,083,400. The shipments last month were unparalleled, though the September total was nearly as large. There was a decrease of 5960 pounds in ripe fruit as compared with September, but an increase of 5,485,000 pounds of raisins, and 1,871,000 pounds of dried fruit. The ripe fruit shipments last month were 8,900,000 pounds larger than for the same months last year. A Light Sentence. Fresno, Nov. 14.—James H. Simp son, who recently fired a load of shot into the leg of his divorced wife, and pleaded guilty to the charge of assault with intent to commit murder, was sentenced by Judge Harris today to serve three years in the state prison at San Quentin. AFRICAN HORRORS. ANOTHER CHAPTER IN THE REAR GUARD CONTROVERSY. Mrs. Jamis3on Tells How Her Husband Got the Cannibal Fictures-Dr. Bonny Says Bartelot was Crazy. London, Nov. 14.—Mrs. Jamieson writes to the papers, enclosing a letter written by her husband to Sir William McKinnon, after Asad Farran's story had been told, entering a vigorous de nial of its truth. In his letter Jamieson says he was deceived. He saw a curious native dance, which Tippoo Tib told him was usually followed by a cannibal feast. He was skeptical, whereupon another Arab told him (Jamieson) to give him a bit of cloth, and he would see. Jamieson thought this was a trick to obtain a gift, but he gave the Arab six handkerchiefs. A girl was then dragged out and murdered before he knew what was going on. He made no sketches at that time, but made them that evening in his hut. Jamieson then goes on to tell of the disreputable character of Asad, and in closes a retraction from that chief, in which he says (he story about buying the girl was misunderstood. Mrs. Jamieson adds that her husband was about to take further steps to clear himself, when he was stricken by a fatal fever. Bonny's official report is printed. In the course of it he severely criticises the management of Jamieson and Bartelot, who, he says, were hand-in-glove. They endeavored to hamper him (Bonny) in various ways. He says the march from Yambuya to Unaria was delayed con stantly by bluster, swagger and bad management. Speaking of the serious losses of arms and stores, he says during the twenty four days of Bartelot's absence, when he (Bonny) was in charge, they never losta man or load, and traveled quicker. By Bartelot's management the loads were afterwards scattered all over the district, and many of them looted. In Bonny's letter to Bartelot's father, telling of the major bringing chainsfrom Stanley falls for the he says: "You may not like to hear this, but the facts are in possession of the Congo state authorities, aud you would best be pre pared for any statement." In the conclusion of his letter to Stan ley, Bonny says that, reviewing all the events, he believes Bartelot was insane. KASTEKN ECHOES. Brief mention of Events Happening Be yond the Mountains. By an explosion of dynamite in a atone quarry at Lima, Ohio, three laborers were blown to pieces, and two others seriously hurt. Three Italians were killed and several others seriously injured in a collision between gravel trains on the Lacka wanna road, near Buffalo, N. Y. The Methodist Missionary convention has appropriated $108,000 for work in China, |8000 for Malaysia, $19,000 for Bulgaria, and $50,000 for work in Italy. Two freight trains on the Norfolk and Western road collided at Petersburg, Va. One brakeman was killed and other trainmen were painfully injured. Two freight trains on the Kansas City road collided at Elkton, Minn. En gineer Penman, Brakeman Callahan and Fireman Rolfe were instantly killed. David McKean, ex-president of the Savannah, Missouri, national bank, has been sentenced to two years in the peni tentiary, for defrauding depositors of their money. At Duluth, Minn,, a man named Moreland, placed some dynamite in a stove in his dwelling to thaw; it ex ploded killing, Moreland and badly in juring his wife and children. The National Baseball league has ex pelled the Cincinnati club for playing with clubs ineligible under the national agreement. An application from J. K. Brush, representing several Cincinnati people, for a league franchise was granted. The Players' league declares that it will continue the fight next year, if it has to sink $75,000 of its own money. The national convention of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, began at Atlanta, Ga., Friday afternoon, with a large attendance. President Frances E. Willard's annual address was lengthy, covering 107 pages. It dealt with the year's work, and declared the W. C. T. U. to be now closing its best year's work. SANCHEZ CORNERED. The Bebellion in Honduras Practically Ended. President Bogran Master of the Situation. The Rebels Besieged in One of the Capital Barracks. Their Capitulation Only a Question of a Few Hours—Sanohez a Doomed Man. Associated Press Dispatches. Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Nov. 14.—The rebellion headed by Sanchez is practi cally ended. The revolutionary forces were utterly routed by the army of Pres ident Bogran, and he is in full possession of the capital city, with the exception of one barrack, where the remnant of the defeated army is cioseiy imprisoned. Ii any of the rebel leaders escape death it will be through the clemency of the president. Skirmishing began before daybreak yesterday, and heavy fighting occurred in the forenoon, lasting all day. The loss so far lias been very heavy on both sides. Bogran has Sanchez and his army surrounded in one of the bar racks, which is being bombarded by solid shot and shell, Sanchez's only chance is to make a sortie. If he does not, he will become a prisoner, which means not alone his death, but that of all his leaders and many soldiers. Bo gran has already taken many prisoners. The city is badly wrecked by shells, and the inhabitants—men, women and children—are thoroughly terrorized. Barillas has remained neutral during the trouble. Before tomorrow night the capital will surely be in the hands of the president, and the brief rebellion of Sanchez will be a matter of history, except perhaps his execution, which will most surely follow bis unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the government. BRITISH OPINION. Sir I.yen Playfair Tears the American Tariff to Pieces. London, Nov. 14.—Sir Lyon Playfair, in a speech at Leeds, last" night, dwelt at great length on the tariff policy of the United States. He cited a host of statistics to show that the consumers always paid the extra duty. The effects of the tariff will be disastrous to Amer ican agriculture, he said, and he de clared that Canada will be able to sup A CATCH. Special to the Herald.] Redondo, November 9th. —The citizens of this place were thrown into a state of great excitement this afternoon by the strangest catch ever known in these waters. The angler, a well-known resident, was armed with a bamboo rod of only ordinary size. He had waited in vain for a bite for nearly half an hour when he felt, at the end of his limH) a fish evidently endowed with enormous strength. The battle which ensued has probably never been paralleled in piscatorial annals. It attracted two-thirds of the popula tion of the village, so rapidly was the exciting news circu lated. The beholders could scarcely believe their eyes when, as the finny monster was drawn out of the water, its side was found to be adorned with the business card of the LONDON CLOTHING CO., whose bargains are now attracting almost as much attention as the fish itself will receive from anglers all over, the country. -*$8 a years bum the Daily Hbbald and !2 the Wikkly Hbrald. it is nbwsyTnd CLEAN.

If Canada would reconstruct her tar ff on revenue principles, Europe and Asia would contribute to her future commer cial prosperity. Referring to the meat inspection bill of America, he declared that the empowering of the president to boycott nations, was an act unworthy of a great nation. The boycott had never hitherto been recognized by international law. He considered the reciprocity clause in the McKinley bill a safety valve to pre vent the high pressure from blowing us protection. Already there were signs in Germany, Italy and elsewhere, of dis tress in the protection camps. Though England might be injured for a year or two by the United States tariff legisla tion, he hoped she would not dream of reprisals. The Times, in a long editorial, sayß Sir Lyon's speech is the most complete exposure yet published on either side of the Atlantic of the absurdity of the Mc- Kinley tariff. The opponents of high protective duties, it says, could hardly do better than to circulate his dispas sionate argument among the American electorate before the next contest for the control of the executive power. CONDENSED CABLEGRAMS, Bits of Haws Flaahed from Foreign Shores. John Dellile, the American consul at Bristol, died today. The Hull steamer Brentwater struck a vessel off Cape Finisterre and foundered. Two of her crew were drowned and six teen saved. Some of the wealthiest London bank ers met at the Bank of England Friday night to discuss the financial condition of certain large firms. The French minister of marine stated that cannon of enormous calibre will no longer be used, thirty-ton guns being capable of piercing armor plates of any thickness. He also says war ships will be built with a speed of 18 knots an hour. A dispatch from Corunna says, the survivors of the Serpent state that sev eral mishaps occurred to her before she was wrecked. The British admiralty of ficials flatly contradict the statements of Admiral Elliott, and assert that the Serpent was perfectly sea worth v. Shirty bodies were washed ashore at Corunn... but none of the officers have yet be'-n found. INGALLS GOING TO FIGHT. He'll Hare to In Order to Get Re-elected. Kansas City, Nov. 14.—An Atchison, Kan., special contains an interview with. Senator Ingalls, regarding his cbtUtcea for re-election to the United States senate. "What!" said Ingalls, "not win when I am going into the fight witli seventy votes—within fourteen of enough to elect me? I would make the fight ;; I had but three votes, and I knev. could get no more."
