Vancouver, B. C, March 17. The
steamer Islander brought news from
Skaguay that the law-abiding citizens
had banded together, and backed by the

ing the "Soapy" Smith gang to stop all

abiding" citizens of Skaguay would not

gambling houses were closed when the

were likely to remain so.

San Francisco, March 17. Over one

lines against the splenetic or southern
fever. Nevada stockmen are desirous
of purchasing In California and Cali
fornia stockmen, are anxious 'to 9 sell

Senator Stewart of Nevada and Gov

munlcated to the state department
here. This has not taken the form of
protest, however, as it does not ap
pear that the Spanish government
claim or assert the right to question
such internal measures as the United
States may adopt, even though they
be of a character to indicate prepara
tions for war. It is rather by way of
representations, conveyed in a friendly
spirit and without threat, as to the se
rious Influences which these prepara
tions will have in encouraging the Cu
ban insurgents at the moment when
the a'r. -o iy plan is to have its crucial
irlai through the Cuban elections, and
In this way defeat the reforms Pre
mier Sagasta Is seeking to carry out.
Prejudicial to Policy of Autonomy.
It has been specially pointed out that
the presence of a large fleet of United
States warships at Key West cannot
be regarded as a friendly .measure, as
the sending of ships was officially rep
resented to be when the Maine went
to Havana, and the Vizcaya returned
the complimentary visit. In short, the
presence of this extensive fleet near
Cuba, together with the war meas
ures taken by the United States, are
regarded by Spain as seriously preju
dicial to the policy of autonomy which
Spain and the United States have alike
approved and an Indirect encourage
ment to the Insurgents in defeating the
desires of both governments for the
success of that policy. Finally, and in
the same spirit of friendly representa
tion, rather than of protest, Spain has
pointed out that a war by the United
States against Spain under such cir
cumstances would be unjustifiable be
fore the world, and a crime against
humanity and civilization. The repre
sentations contained no reference what
ever to the Maine disaster or to re
dress or indemnity therefor.
Marlx Going to Washington.
The most important piece of real
news finds Its way out through a strict
ly confidential personal source. Judgd
Advocate Marlx of the Maine court of
inquiry will be in Washington "this
week." He notified a friend to that ef
fect in a confidential letter which has
Just been received. He does not state
whether he Is coming alone or whether
the others members of the court of In
quiry will be with him. If he comes
alone he will undoubtedly bring the
report with him. If his associates ac
company him several days may. elapse
after their arrival in Washington be
fore they report their findings. In
either event the departure of one or
more members of the court of Inquiry
from Key West northward will be a
signal for a fresh outpouring or dis
quieting rumors as to the tenor of the
report, and the public has an ordeal be
fore it in' withstanding this bombard
ment. CLEVELAND DECLINES TO TALK.
He Will. However, Loyally Support the
Government In Any Emergency,
Princeton, N. J., March 17. Former
President Cleveland was interviewed
by an Associated Press reporter upon
the subject of the Maine affair and the
existing relations between this coun
try and Spain. Cleveland at first de
clined to express any opinion upon the
matter. "I should only be misunder
stood," he said. "I have been resting
here quietly since leaving Washington
and I do not wish to say or do any
thing which may be construed in any
way as a comment upon public af
Finally, In a firm and emphatic fash
Ion he volunteered this statement:
"Though I have -no wish to be inter
viewed, you may state, for me that in
common with others I think every pat
riotic cttlsen ought to loyally support
the government during a period of trial
like the present, no matter what exi
gencies may arise. I will also say that
I hope the present difficulties will be
settled without bloodshed. It Is pot-
slble that an honorable way out wlITbe
found eventually and that there will

P.CY8 THE YACHT MAYFLOWER.
Government Will Use Her as Torpedo Uoat
Washington, March 17. President
McKlnley has determined to convert
American steam yachts into torpedo
boat destroyers. This is a result of
the government's failure to secure this
type of war vessel from foreign build
ers. Following swiftly on the heels of the
announcement of the purchase of the
Brazilian cruisers Amazonas and Ab
rue, it was learned that negotiations
had been concluded by the Rodgers
board,, acting under the instructions of
the president and Secretary Long, by
which this government bought the
steam yacht Mayflower, a vessel larger
than the dispatch boat Dolphin, and
capable of maintaining a speed of more
than twenty knots an hour at sea. She
is the first vessel of the merchant ma
rine which has been added to the naval
service, and is an important Indication
of the administration's desire to be
prepared for the emergencies of the

Madrid. March 17. Spain will stand
by the report of Its naval court of in
quiry, regardless of any conclusion that
may be reached by the American com
mission. The Madrid press is practi
cally unanimous In making this state
ment. It says that if the Spanish na
val officers report that the theory that

Spanish government will consider the

This is construed here as a notice to
the United States that any demands
that may be made for Indemnity or
reparation by that country on the
strength of the report of the American
naval board will be refused. The Span
ish government will not admit its re
sponsibility for the disaster in Havana
harbor, and will deny the right of the
United States to demand anything.
War Symptom In Michigan.
Grand Rapids. Mich.. March 17. The
first symptom of war, so far as Michi

military board has received a request

charge of corporals, and that complete
lists of these divisions be reported at
once to the secretary of war. thus in

New York. March 17. The American
line steamer St. Louis sailed for South

The board for the inspection of auxil

not require the steamer for armament
at present. Vice President Wright de
nied that any naval officer was on the
St. Louis when she sailed. The report
that Commander Emery was to be on

should hostilities break out Mr. Wright
said was an error.

Madrid. March 17. A semi-official
