Washington, L>. C, April 19.?
Official confirmation of Luudou dis
liatobos tbnt Nicaragua bud been in
formed that her counter proposition
?ras not regarded as aatisluctory by
Groat Britain was received hero to
Nicaragua's prcBent pluu, it is un?
derstood, ia to eudonvor to reach u
Compromise with Great Britain respect
log tbo ultimatum settlement of the
indemnity of $75,000 to pro Consul
latch. In pursuance ot thin purpose,
a special report may be lent to Lon?
don, who will probably bo Geu. Bar?
rios, who recently returned from
iCuglnnd, ufter an uusueeesstul attempt
to eettlo tbo difUenlty.
it is not doubted that in the cud, Ni?
caragua will pay the indemnity demand,
or oiler to Great Britain in lieu of the
$75,0110 a psrt of her territory. The
report bitH reached here lrom Nicaragua
? hat Mr. Qoaling, the Britiab Minister
to Central America, declared in (Junta
mala, a few months ago tbut "England
especially wanted Mime interest in
Nicaragua with a view to preventing
Ibe Yankees lrom controlling absolute
ty the Nicaragua Canal, '
This etuteuieut, it ib said, was runde
?ublicly and wit bout reserve. It wus
noted in the Guatemala newspapers
at the time,un(i u high authority asserts
that Minister Qoaling b:i? never ven?
tured to den v it. the particular patches
of territory available lor tint, purposes
srould be the so bailed "Corn Islands,''
the possibility of whose proffered
cession by Nicaragua to Great Britain,
lu lieu of a money indemnity, bus been
anoro than only suggeste i lutely. These
tends would ue ot great value to Great
J'.ntam for a cuuliug and naval statii n
and an effective British leutiuel over
Iho Nicaragua couul.
it is said tu bo absolutely impossible
lor Nicaragua to immediately comply
with Great Britian's monej demands,
(She has now ?70,11(10 iu bcr treasury

Quietly laughed at, "Nicaragua" it is
said, "has uosbips," the blockade would
only hurt tbo commerce of Germany,

'there are those who Miggest that if

The Increase in Speculation tho Most
Noticeable Feature.
Bv Southern AsBociatad l'ron
New York, April 19,?-R. Q. Dan A
Co'?., wookly roviow of trade to mor?
row will eay:
In every speculative department
business is growing, but this ia really
tho least satisfactory feature of tho
situation. Cotton, oil und wheat oltmb
above the export price, so that tho
marketing of products abroad must bo
chocked and money is absorbed which
onght he employed in productive in
dustry and iu distribution of products
to consumers.
Everybody knows that oil hue not
risen -DO per cent, because it is iu
triusically muro valuable, nor is wheat
actually worth more than it was two or
three weeks ngo, but (ho expensive and
j ni?-Uyiug bus unfortunately tukeu to
speculation ralhor than to production,
and so wo hnvo higher prices in all
speculative markets without a larger
demand for consumption.
There is uo evidence that cotton is
iu larger demand thuu it was when thu
prico was 1 cent lower, but prices have
been so low tor months that an upward
movement wus easy without much rea?
son, though etucks here aud abtoud are
H00.O00 hales larger ihun they were at
the same date utter tho greatest crop
evor produced horetofure, und spinners
bore uud abroad have tukeu ai out
1.GOO,000 bules more than they have
consumed. The ribo tends lo prevent
tho decrease of acreago, which iu its
one reasonable excuse.
Outside ol speculative market, the
most important feature is the use iu
pnoo ot beef, but wnieh is largely due
to the control of sources of supply by
u lew strong corporations. There
ought to be, but apparently ia nut,
sufficient power iu the bauds of thu
govornmeut to meet any such couspira
oy uguiust tbo public, and thu proposal
ot Secretary Mm ton to admit Mexican
cattle und cattle lrom Caniulu uu easy
lerms lor the beue?t of consumers, is
heartily commcuded, though it is uot
likely to have much iudueuee, 'I be
actual deoruasc iu receipts of cattle at
the four chief Western markets' bus
been 200,000 head during tbo first
quarter of 1895, and the quantity killed
has been only 80*000 head less than last
yeur, ubout 10 per cent., but lneie Lave
litlle tu do with prices in this case, as
i iu tbo case of oil. j
Some large textile mills hnvo ad?
vanced wages ut Fall liner ubout 10'
per cent., restoring the talcs paid after
the reduction in Soptenibaa, 1803, Ea
bur (roubles are comparatively less sc
nous this weck. Tbecoium mills are
encouraged by improving prices uud
are fairly busy.
Money markets nre eouipara'.ively
dull aud accumulation from the mit;
nor continues, although there is not
material increase ill the commercial
demand. Foreign trade shows u heavy
balauce and gold wotml undoubtedly
go out iu lnr^e amounts but for the
negotiations uf bonds by tho syndicate.

26 cunts to soo the unique ceremony.
A Chinese orchostra played u number
of seleotious. There were six men in
this orchestra, and they ovokod fearful
and wonderful strains from their instru?
ments. When they wem not playing,
tiny wore "tuning up, "tint the distinc?
tion was entirely lost upon tho audience,
v/hich applauded everything.
At ti o'clock the bridal procession filed
in. Thore were six ushers, and behind
them came tho lovely Won-Hal-Cheo,
which name means "shu who eats the
nightingales' tongues."
Sim was arrayed in a dark skirt, and
her features wore covered with it heavy
red veil. Tho happy bride waa "lunged
in" while snated in a largo sedan chair,
and tho bearers of tho chair were Amer?

carrying chairs of this kind. On the ar?
rival of tho brido tho orchestra broko

A shower rif popcorn grouted tho brido,
and two pages, carrying lanterns, waved
tbem bofore her. Thu bridegroom, in a
fur coat aud attended by six men, wits
manifestly nervous, but hit did well and
is in good training for a real ceremony.
Thu sedan chair in which tho brido
sat was preceded by tho matchmaker,
who bore tho brunt of tho ceremony.
Tho bridegroom followed, and whon
thu chair had been sot down ho opened
tbo door, and out came tho brido.
More "music, by tho band" followed,
and then the bride turned over tho keys
of her trunks to tho bridogroom. This
part of thu ooromouy seemed to havo an
exhilarating inflnenoe on tho groom, for
ho promptly ' 'opened wine," so to speak,
pouring a dark red mixturo from u do
