What Will Italy Have the Baron Propose? 60V. KI0H0LLS' NEGATIVE NOTE It Ha, Finally Iteartied Secretary Sltatne ami tier Italian Mtnl.ter. ami I. Prin cipally Remarkable for What It Doe. Not Say. Washington, March 35. — Secretary Blaine ban sent to Baron Fa va, the Italian minister, a copy of the letter of Governot Nicholls about the New Orleans affair Tlie next move must be made by Baron Kava, a, the Putted States is powerless tr do anything in Hie matter wIdle the action of the avengers is living investigated h> the New Orleans grand jury. Delayer action or failure to hold any persons re sponsible for the killing may decide Barm Fava to take active means to bring about some settlement satisfactory to the Italian government. He will probably rec eive ad vices by cable within a day or two from Home as to what course he shall pursue. Governor NtnlinlU' Answer. The answer of Governor Francis T Nicholls, of Louisiana, to Sec re ta 1-5 Blaine's telegram of March 15 in reference to the New Orleans affair is as follows: "At a late hour on the 15th Inst. I esc Oelvod a dispatch from you having refer enoe to the 'forcible breaking on Hie Utb of this month of the jail in New Orleans and Ihe killing of eleven persons confined therein under indictments found in the criminal district court for the parish of New Orleans.' "You stated to me that It had been rep resented to the president by the ministe» of Italy accredited to the government ot the United States that among the killed an that occasion were three or tour »uh joetsof the king of Italy. "The telegram disclosed an apprehension on the part of the minister, evidently shared in by the president, that the dis turbance was a continuous ami swelling disturbance, which might involve lice liai ian subjects in New Orleans. 1 have rea son to lielieve that the hope expressed by the president that I would co operate with, him in maintaining tlie obligations of the Polled Stales toward Italian subjects who might.be within the perils of the excite ment, and that further violence and blood shed might la.- prevented, was based upon that belief. /lirtlrev Troulile Feared. N. * "The president further expressed the hope that all offenders might lie promptly brought to Justice. On the lotit I tele graphed you that there was no excitement in the city at that time and that 1 know no reason to anticipate further trouble. 1 also statisl that the action taken was directed against particular individuals, and that the nationality ot the parties did not enter as a factor into the disturbance. A week has passed since the date of my dispatch, and the opinion then entertained as to the termination of the trouble has proved to have been well founder. Two or Three Wi Italian Subjects. "The men killed, us I have stated, were ooitlinedlii prison under indictment* found In the criminal district court for the pariah Of New Orleans; the sheriff has made his return of the facts to that court, the Judge thereof has cliarged the grand jury now in session in regard to the matter, and the whole subject is, I assume, now under in vestigalion by that body. I am satisfied that most of the persons killed were Amer lean citizens, but it is probable that two or three were Italian subjects." A Very Unsatisfactory Document. Though the tragedy occurred ten days ago, and Secretary Blaine the following day addressed his communication to Gov eriior Nicholls, tlie response I wars date of tiie 21 sl iust., or seven days after the mas sacre. In nearly every reaped the letteris a disappointment to the state department officials, and it has arroused no little in digitation at the Italian legation. It con tains only u bare statement of already well known fads, expresses no regrets for the outrage and gives no pledges that the lynchers will be punished. Baron Fava refuses absolutely to discuss it, saying that whatever his opinion may be be will communicate it to the president and Mr. Blaine. Legation attaches, however, dé claré that the communication was in no way satisfactory. Secretary Blaine Is Reticent. Secretary Blaine declines to make public his views. It seems safe to assert, how ever, that, in view of Nicholls' very diplo malic response that the federal government will he culled upon to settle with the Italian government for the murder of its subjects. Congress will have toad before the amount of tlie award can be fixed. Therefore, it is very likely that the controversy will not end until long after the Fifty-second con gress convenes. Baron Fava, it is understood, has lieett advised by those who do not desire any friction bet w'een tlie United States govern ment and King Humbert to await the ac tion of the grand jury before again assum ing the aggressive. The baron is in almost daily communication with Secretary Blaine, and he has re|s-ntedly received as surances that so far as tlie federal govern ment is concerned nothing will be left un done to satisfy the Italian kingdom of the profound regret it entertains for the brutal work at New Orleans. To Investigate the Killing. New Orleans, March 35.—The grand Jury will on Thursday, under direction of Attorney General Rogers, begin an inves tigation into the lynching of the Italians at the parish prison. When the question of taking up the subject was submitted to the grand jury yesterday the "ayes" were unanimous. Judge Rogers has lieeu in communication with Nignor Corte, the Italian consul, and has several letters from that gentleman, one of which shows that ten of the men who were killed went under assumed names, aud from this the authori ties infer that they were either fugitives from Italy or ex-convicts. Corte lias requested that the leaders of the uprising be brought to justice. The grand jury is uearty through with its in quiry into Hie jury bribery charges. One of the two indictments they reported was against the missing detective, D. C. O'Mal ley, who is charged with having been an accessory before the fact. It is understood that Indictments will also be returned against Juror Sellgman and three of bis colleagues in the Hennessy trial. District Attorney Fugen burg said yesterday after noon that there will be a Dumber of sensa tional developments in the matter before the end of the week. To Stop Emigration.

Mr. Audrewsaml others were organizing this company at that time, and Mrs. Grant nays site gut tlie impression from Mr. An drews' conversation that the Standard Oil magnates were behind the steam company as its financial backers, and that their all powerful influence was going to make it a perfect bonanza. She Wanted It Transferred. On this understanding—that tlie steam company was virtually a Standard Oil en terprise—Mrs. Grant says she gave Mr. Andrews her check for 155,000and he trans ferred to her a block of stock in the New York Steam coin patty. Mrs, Grant's object in writing to Mr. Rockefeller, who is president of tlie great Standard Oil trust, was to ask him, she said, to please lie so good as to have het stock in the steam company exchanged for «lock in tlie Standard Oil trust. Mrs. Grant naively explained—with a woman's idea of business—that she was tired of waiting for dividends on steam stock which never came, and she wantisl her shares exchanged for those of the oil mon opoly, which pay big dividends wit h great regularity. .lohn I*. Rockefeller Explains. Mr. Rockefeller was greatly surprised at this letter from Mrs. Grant lie made haste to answer It, assuring iter that he was powerless to grant her request as to the exchange of stock. He explained at length that neither the Standard Oil trust nor any of its tm.-tees were tlie backers or promoters of the steam company, either directly or indirectly, and that they never had anything to do with the affairs ot .Mr. Andrews' company. Any Impression that steam company's certifi cates could lie exchanged for Standard Oil trust shares was entirely unwarranted. As to Mr. Andrews himself, he had not been connected with the Standard company for several years past. It was too late to find Mr, Andrews wheii this story leaked out, and ids version of it was not learned last night, ft is quite dkely that the misunderstanding Itetween Mrs. Grant and the president of the steam company may yet. lie referred to the arbi trament of the courts for settlement.
