The forthcoming Investigation of the department of the Interior is con templated at Washington with much apprehension on the part of adherents of both sides to the controversy.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12.—A tele gram received at the State depart ment this afternoon from Bluefields says, in effect, that the indications are that a majority of the prisoners raptured at the battle near Rama by the revolutionists will join Estrada’s army very soon. Estrada, it is said, will supply the prisoners with pro visions, independent of the American Red Cross. The state department has also re ceived a long telegram from New Or leans signed by over a dozen commer cial and industrial companies, appar ently all Americans and engaged in business in Nicaragua, strongly fa voring Estrada for provisional presi dent. They believe the revolutionary general would afford full protection to their interests. Madriz, the tele gram says, would likely follow the old Zelaya regime, greatly to the detriment of the business interests of Nicaragua. BROKER DROPS DEAD.

It is true that if the consumer demands the choice cute he muBt pay for them, but beef and good beef is within the reach of all.
