The following stntement has been received from Cspt. Vlnlari "I have wit nessed hideous enormities. Armenian girls and women were publicly sold at auction.

Tlm telegram to Minister Andrnile follows: "It wns yi-stordny when the national com missary of Cuvinil telegraphed the occur rence. Harrison nml III more crossed on tlm left hmik of tlm ciiyitnl to open a rond. The suh-ciituuil-nry of Aenrnbinl protested In writing. Harrison Insisted, and the sub commlssary took him to the post ot El Do rado. As soon ns the government was In formed It ordered the release of Harrison and asked details." It Is undoubtedly trim that the prompt ac tion ot the Venezuelan government was. In n mensure, due to Mr. fllimy'a Intercession, through our minister nt Caracas, and It Is believed that tlm mnln Issue lictwocn (treat llritnln nnd Venezuela will be even more easy of settlement now that the bitter gov ernment bus been so prompt to disnvow the the net of the suli-eouiiiilssiiry. Minister Andrnile says that the Cuyunl river has been the provisional boundary, mid has never before been crossed by the llrltlsli, In nil the encroachments made on Venezuelan territory, the rights of Venezuela to all terri tory on the left bank of thn Cuyunl have been respected by tlm llrltlsli.

Bhodet and Othtr Dtrtotort of tht South Afrloa Company Oat It It officially announced that tit resigna tions of Cecil Ithodes, Alfred Ileii and Dr. ltuthnrford Harris, as directors of the lirltlsh South Africa Company, have been accepted. The llrst named tendered his resignation some months ago as a result of the disclosures made regarding the raid Into the Trans vaal, but action In the matter wo suspended at the request of Ithodes, who was then about to engage the Matabeles, according to lilt telegraphic message. Ithodes, It It fur ther announced, will reside in lthodesla and assist In the Ilritlnb South Africa Company to administer tbe territory under Its con trol. Dr. Harris wat the Secretary for the Mrltlsh South Afrloa Company at Cape Town. The acceptance of the resignations of Messrs. Ithodes, Belt and Harris hat un doubtedly the outcome of the recent demand of the government of the South Africa Com pany for tbe prosecution of Ithodes nnd the other Implicated with him in the Transvaal raid. SENSATIONAL TESTIMONY. Cotell It Confronted by tht Star Witntii in the Murder Trial. The promised sensation in the Cotell mur der trial developed when Flora A. Stone, the youngest daughter ot tbe murdered Al vin and Sorene Stone, wat put on the stand. It bad been known that the girl, who It only 1(1 years old, very pretty, retired and modest lu demeanor, had a story to tell Which had not been made public. She testified that the man who entered her room the night ot the murder attempted to assault her, but before accomplishing bit purpose ran away, evidently seared by the knowledge that he bad been discovered. She also swore that on each occasion when be tpoke she recognized the voice of Cotell. On previous occasions, when Cotell wat working for her father, he had attempted famllltiee with her. The defense on oross-examlnatlon failed to ehake the testimony of the girl. The tight over the admission of the confession ot Co tell, wblcb wat made under pressure from officers, ended In ita admission. NATIONAL PASTY PLANS. A Number of Conftrtnott to be Btld la Dif ferent Statet Soon. At the National headquarters ot the Na tional party In Alliance, 0., arrangements have been made for an Interstate conference of the trlendt ot tbe new movement In Min neapolis, Minn., June 29 and 80. Ex-Oov. St. John, of Kansas, who It vice-chairman of the party'e exeoutivo committee, will attend and apeak. Both the Prohibition and Be publloan etate conventions ot Minneeota will be In session at the time and the Nationals are expecting many reorulta from these partlet. WHITNEY'S WARNING. Ht Snggoitt That fret Silver at Chlosgo Would Be Bolted. William C. Whitney hat published bis views on silver as a question fo come before the Chicago convention, la which he draws the line Imtween eastern nnd western senti ment nnd intlmnfes Hint eastern democrats might follow Teller's example nt Ht. Louis It free coinage were to be Incorporated In the democratic plntform. For the past Ift yenrs, lenders of public opinion In the south mid west have been nd vocntlng as the great remedy for existing Ills tlm free coinage of silver nt HI to I, with or without the co-operation of other nations. It has come to he believed In there, llllto f;euerully nml conscientiously. A large 111 n nrltyof the delegates to the coming Demo cratic convention hnvo been elected by the people for the purpose of Incorporating that doctrine Into the platform of the ilienoerntlo pnrty. Our people, on the ollmr hnnd.cntlrclydla agree with these views and believe almost universally that It will bring general ruin to the business mid prosperity of the country. It Is deemed n new doctrine, which Is pro posed to lie incorporated Into the plntform nf the national democracy. It Is true that In no previous platform of the party can It si Ideally be found; consequently, no party obligations heretofore assumed oblige them to subscribe to It. Under the these circumstances. If the re sults of the democratic convention should lie to establish as tlm Issue of this campaign the free colnnge of silver nt a rntlo of IN to 1, Independent of other nations, In the Inten sity of feeling likely to arise. It Is to lie seri ously apprehended that a DIHllUPI'lON OF THE DKMOCllATIO PA1ITY MIGHT OC CUII. Certainly, no substantial following could be secured for the doctrine among eastern democrats, They might not vote tbe republican ticket for other reasons (be lieving that the republican pnrty stands for other Issmst that are detrimental to the country), but thn drinoernts In the cost would not, In my opinion vote for it. This movement for free colnnge purports to have Its object the establishment and maintenance of gold and silver ns the money of the country, upon eiiunl terms with each other. and nt a parity ot purchasing power. Aside from the absence of any democratic principle to sustain It. you cannot have such a disturbance of viiliio as would come from changing from a gold to a silver basis, without such a shock to confldenire the hoarding of gold and contraction of our available clrciiliitingmedliim ns would bring in thn opinion of our people, the worst pntilo nnd distress we have ever seen in this coun try. The creditor classes urn prepared for It. Thn obligations, mortgages, railroad and otherwise, are quite generally payable In gold. Debts would still have to be paid In gold, but wages In silver. The sufferers, as usual, would be the poorer classes. Personally, It Is my opinion that if the democratic party goes on that platform at this time, they will get tbe most dls-, nmruiin ueierit nun iiiiv pnny line ever hnd In this country. I understand It Is honestly believed In, and people think It will bring relief from their present trou bles; but between now and olectlon day It will be pretty thoroughly sifted, nna the people ot this country will not face the disturbance of values, the loss ot confi dence, the general distress and ruin which would come to their business Interests In tueh a change in their standard of values as would arise from such notion. And it will, In my opinion, overwhelm the persons who undertake it. It ought not to bo necessnry for mo to say anything of a personal nature. 1 find my self, however, spoken of hero nnd there ns a possible candidate not very seriously or prominently, but sulflelently to attract atten tion. I have no personal motive lu entering this fight. 1 will ndd, copying the emphatic language once used hy the late Gen. Slier man (1 think I remeiiils-r It correctly i, "I will not run if nomliinted nor serve II elected." lam not foolish enough to suppose tlmt nny eastern man could be nomliinted tiy this convention, much less Hint 1 could. 1 sym pathize thoroughly with the feeling In the south, that has caused the uprising that wlli find its expression nt Chicago; but ns to the principle which the uprising has brought forth and tbe Issues being framed, I entirely disagree. BOTH PLEADED GUILTY. Two Men Arretted In Louiilalna For Steal ing Negroet For Guatemala. W. II. Wins nnd J. II. Itnmlolph, agents id the contractors who are building a railroad In Oiintemnla, are under 41X10 bond at Mon roe, Ouachita l'nrlsh, La., charged with kid naping colored boys and womeu, aud send ing them to Central America. For some time past great excitement has existed throughout Northern Louisiana over the presence of these men, with others. They first tell seductive stories to the negroes ot high wages, etc, and prevail upon them to go with them. If they do not go willingly It Is charged, they use force. Many negroes have been missing from plantations, and It Is now known they have been tent to New Orleans, and shipped on a line ot fruit steamers for Guatemala. The other day two young negroes disap peared from Monroe and the father of one ot them, learning they had been teen talking to strange wbite men, made an Investigation. He learned that both ot them had been ship ped to Guatemala, whether ooaxed away 01 sent by force he does not know. The father's name U Elijah Willis, and up on Information sworn out by him, a deputy sheriff arrested Slmt and llnndolpb. Tbe two were caught on an Iron Mountain train, and had In charge about 80 uegro men aud women, whom they were also lutendiug to tend to Guatemala. The men acknowledged they had tent the boyt to Guatemala, aud were tent to jail. They hastily tel igruphed to their principal! lu New Orleans, who tent 1,000 for tiieli ball for a trial at the next term of court, which meets In October. Tbe New Orlennt lenders are not kuown, but It Is expected there will be tome sensations when the trial oonies off. BEADS LIKE ROMANCE. A Man Served Twenty Teart for Another'! Crime. With the death of John Addlngton, wblcb occurred at tbe Dayton, O., Soldier's home last week, It recalled one of the most re markable tragedies and romances in real life that ever happened. The circumstances give the impression that an Innocent man bai served a term in the penitentiary for murder. Thirty years ago, at a New Year dance at Portoravllle, Pa., two men were kllleil. John Addiugton wot susiiected, tried three time and finally aerved io years. After released he always protested hit innocency and ac cused John Oliver, owner of the hotel when the crime wat committed. While Addlngton wat In prison Oliver'! wife suddenly died and be married Mrs. Addlngton, who desert ed her nine children. Oliver Is dead. Noth ing bat been heard ot hit wife lately.
