No Agreement as to the Princi
ples Has Been Reached.
Negotiations Between England, and
the United States at a Standstill.
TIio Onus Is Cast on Iord Salisbury, Who
Rejected the Proposition Made by the
Washington Government Prompt
Action la Urged on England
London, April 22.T-Tho Times Wed
nesday publishes a long1 dispatch from
G. W. Smallcy, Its correspondent In
America, which is devoted to dispelling
the illusions that tho Vonezuelan
boundary- dispute has passed a danger
ous, stage; that tho negotiations aro
prospering, and tho British blue book
on thb subject created a favorable
impression in tho United ' States. Mr.
Smalley says that not ono of tho fore
going bellofs is well founded. No
agreement as to principles has been
reached and negotiations are at a
standstill. Nobody seems to know
when or how they will be renewed or
, tile deadlock removpd. If tho American
commission decides tho Venezuela
boundary adverse to Great Britain's
claim tho alternative stands and Presi
dent Cleveland's, message will have to
be faced. Mr. Smallcy casts the, onus
on Lord Salisbury who rojectod tho
proposition mado by tho Washington
government in February and who docs
not appear to have mado counter pro
posals. Tho dispatch dilates upon tho
reasons for prompt action for it says
tho uncertainties aro many and tho
perils grave. .
The Times, commenting upon this,
says that i can't fully share tho gloomy
anticipations contained in tho dispatch,
although tho reminder Is not, perhaps,
untimely. It contends olsewhoro in
his dispatch Mr. Smalley shows that
Lord Salisbury has taken other action
for opening another schemo for gcnoral
arbitration to which tho paper attaches
importance. It also contends that if
tho general project fails, Great Britain
ought to bo able with prudence to
resume tho specific caso with Venez
uqla. The paper remarks upon tho
good will of tho Washington govern
ment testified In Mr. Cleveland's elo
quent letter to Consul Parker, the
sentiments in which aro reciprocated
in all circles here.

Tho coroner testified that ho thought tho

found on the body as that worn by Pearl when

taken their seats after being sworn, when
Deputy Sheriff Htndman brought Into court
from tho clork's office and placed in front of

The garment was a grewsomo sight, covered
as It was in'part with tho stains of mud and
blood. Especially was tho bodlco stained
heavily. Hlndman placed tho figure creot un
der Attorney Lookbart's directions and re
tired. Attornoy Crawford sprang to his feet
"I object," said he, "to such a display in this
"What Is the objection!" asked the judge
"I demand that this lay figure be removed,"
Crawford'went on "Such an exhibition Is not
only unseemly, bat highly reprehensible."
Hardly had he flnlshod when Attorney Nel
sonfor the prosecution, arose.
"Ho objects, your honor. Of courso ho
does," he began with warmth. "Dut then ho
would object to tho Introduction of .any ovl
dence which would tend to sohe tbo great
mystory In this caso and fasten it on the
guilty party. He would have no other reason,
and It Is eminently proper to have the garment
Attorney Lockbart cited tho Durrantcase as
a precedent.
"I think that tho lay figure should bo re
moved," said tbo judge. "It Is too sugges
tive." Tho figure was then removed and tho dress
thrown on a table
Coroner Tingley was recalled. Ills examina
