IIIh Well Known Vleis 011 Reciprocity Presented In Another letter. Washington, July 28. Senator Frye has received the following letter from Secretary Blaine, in reply to his recent inquiries resecting ihe effect of reci procity on the sugar trade with Cuba and Porto Rico: ItAH llAKHOll, Me., July 22, 18!t0. Peak Mr. Fiivk I have your reply to my letter, mid am k'"I that the esHentutl iurt of it has been given to the p-ess. You a.ik me what aHxurance I have as to Sjmin'H williiixnesH to enter Into re ciproral aiTHiiitemei:; of trade with the United Slates. Your question Hiirprises Die. for you cannot have forgotten that only nix years ao ihe, prime minister of Spain, in his anxiety to secure free admis Mnit to our markets for the sugar of Cuba and l'orto Kiuo, agreed to a very extensive treaty of reciprooily with Mr. John W. FoMter, then our minister at Madrid. A year In-fore, 1883, a very admirable treaty of reciprocity was negotiated by (Jen. (iraut and Mr. W. II. Trescott, as United States commissioners, with the re public of Mexico, a treaty well considered in all its parts and all its details, whose results would, I believe, have proved highly advantageous to both countries. In view of the pending discussion it is a somewhat singular circumstance that both these treaties of reciprocity failed to secure the approval of congress, and failed for ihe express reason that Is.th provided for t he 1 ree admission of sugar. Congress would not then allow a -single pound of nugar to come in free of duty under any circumstances whatever. And now the proposition is to open our port.t Hie to everbody's sugar and to do ic with such rapidity that we are not to have a moment's time to see if wo cannot make a better trade a trade by which we may pay for at least a part of the sugar in the products of American farms and shops. Our change of opinion has certainly been remarkable in so brief a period. In deed, the only danger of our not securinjr advantageous treaties of reciprocity now is the possible belief on the part of those con 11 tries that we are so anxious for free siii-ar that by patient waiting they can secure all they desire without money ami without price. Fearing that result, I sought an Inter view wit h t he eight Republican members of the committee 011 ways and means more than live months ago to he exact, on the Kit h day of last February, 1 endeav ored to convince them that it would be expedient and wise to leave to the presi dent, as the treaty-making power, an opportunity to see what advantageous ar raiigemeiilsof reciprocity could lie effected. 1 was unable to persuade the committee to take my view. I mention this circum stance now because it has been charged in many fjuartent that the suggestion for reciprocity came too lat. In fact, my effort was made before the tariff bill was reported to the house or even framed in committee. It is, I think, a very grave mistake to oppose this reciprocal proposition touch ing sugar from the fear that it may con flict in some way with the policy of pro tection. The danger is, I think, wholly iu the opposite direction, Iet us see what is proposed. Our government has hereto fore collected a heavy duty Jrom sugai" amounting one year in the aggregate to fifty-eight millions of dollars (.'8,0on,000), and averaging fifty millions per annum for a considerable period. We wish now to cheapen sugar by removing the duty. The value of the sugar we annually consume is enormous. Shall we pay for it al! iu cash, or shall we seek a recipro cal arrangement by which a large part of it may be paid for In pork and beef and flour, in lumber, salt, and iron, in sluvs and calico and furniture, and a thousand other things f In short, shall we pay for it all in cash, or try friendly barter iu part I think the latter mode is thil highest form of protection, and the liest way to promote trade. I address this note to yon, as I did my first, because you have taken an active and most Intelligent interest ill the in crease of our trade with South America, When '.-diall we enlarge our commercial Intercourse with that great continent if we do not now make a IwKinnlnKr' If we now give away the duty 011 sugar (as we have already given away the duties on coffee and hides and rubber) and get noth ing in exchange w hich shall be profitable to the farm or the factory in the Uniied States, what shall be our justification for the policy. You have recently received congratulation-- in which 1 cordially join ju carry ing I he shipping bill througli the senate. Jo you not think that a line of ships gen erously aided by the government will have a U-tter prosjiect for profit and for perinanance If we can givu to them out ward cargoes from the United States and not coiiline them to inn aid eulgoes from Latin America? i am sincerely yours, .lAMKS C.

De BarroB, citizen of lirazil, who ban recently N traveling through the northern juu t f that country, mul he was much impressed with the change of tivliuj of the jH-ople i'f liiaaal.

The problem to Iv solved was the question of the pi i.e. the terms of which included tjnM.itali'U. The plUe inut I lower. In the element of price there wt re many elements Desuits the actual Cost.

But she could give reductions iu duties in return for five sugar given by the United States. Enormous gains would result from mutual concessions The steps already takeu for banking facili ties are most important. At present the capital of Europe ou ters into our trade and operates against American goods. Better transportation facilities should be, had, but most im portant of all is reciprocity.. Manufac turers of cotton, steel, leather, wood, iron, auci farmers, by the mle of bread' stuffs, would be benefited. Ihea the present temper of the Brazilians, be cause of feeling against England , affords a wonderful opportunity to this coun try. Throwing this great market away will be bitterly repented. DON'T WANT TO TALK. The Republican Member of the W'ayi and Mean Committee. Washington, July 28. The Republi lican niemliero of the ways and means committee do not appea." disposed to dis cuss the conference, they had with Mr. Bhiine on Feb. 10 last, which was re ferred to in the Fecretary's last letter to Senator trye. I heir reticence ou the subject is alleged to 1 the result of a general understanding that the matter should not be discussed. Friends of Mr. Blaine say that he was displeased at the manner in which the committee ignored his recommendations. It is understood that Secretary Blaine requested the conference: that Mr. Mc Kinlev sent out confidential notes to Re publican ineniliers of the committee to meet I11111 at ins room 111 the rJbbitt house on the following morning at 10 o clock; that every Kepuuucan member was present, and fiir half an hour Mr. Blaine addressed them on the subject of reciprocity, and that, i'ter Mr. Blaine had presented his views formally . a gen eral conversation ensued on the subject. iu which he was plied with a number of questions. Among the questions asked was whether Spain would be included in the reciprocity scheme. Mr. Blaine having conhneU his remarks merely to oor re lations with ihe Spanish-American re' publics. To this Mr. Blaine is said to have replied that Spain was in too bad huaiiciid straits to surrender any of her revenues. Mr. Blaine's reference to Spain in the letter to Mr. Frye is viewed with some snrprise.by members of the ways and means committee. It is argued bj? those who favor the secretary's proposition that tho Repub lican members of the committee never gave Mr. Blaine's proposition any con sideration after the conference was held. Almost without dissent, it is re ported, they regarded the plan as im piactical, and it wes never brought be fore the full committee, even for the pur 1 Mine of discussion. Mr. Blames conclusion, therefore, that the commit tee had 11 very indifferent opinion of his proposition, was, his friends claim, not unwarranted. In the informal way in which the Re publican members of the coinuiitteo dis cussed it among themselves, it was agreed that if Spain could not afford re ciprocity, the Spanish-American repub lics, most of them at least in still worse financial straits, could not a if or d it. Most of them regarded that the oppor tunity to get mutual concessions had gone by; that the time to have bar gained was when coffee, hides, rubber, etc., were put on the free list in previ ous tariff acts; that now it was impossi ble to turn the mill with the water that was past. It appear that it was in this view of the situation that Mr. Blaine's proiiosi tion was rejected in a sort of off-hand way bv the Republicans of the commit tee. From the evident feeling among them since Friday's letter has been made public, it is apparent that even shorjd Mr. Blaine secure the approval of uie senate in his reciprocity scheme, it would a second time be rejected by the ways and means committee. THE ROPE CHOKED HIM. A Condemned Mhii's Lsnt Complaint on the Scaffold. Martinsviu.k, Va., July 28. Thomas Wilson, colored, was hanged here Friday. At It a. 111. four colored divines went to his cell and held appropriate services, all making short, feeling talks, and Preacher Nicholson offered prayer. The prisoner joined in the singing. His brother came in during the services and fell on the condemned man's neck and wept bitterly, but for goml reasons the prisoner requested, the jailor to remove him out of the iuclcaure, saying: "If my brother has no more respect for me than to come to my hanging drunk, I do not wish for him to be present." Wilson walked deliberately and unaid ed upon the scaffold. He told the people that whisky brought him to this. When the sheriff adjusted the rope around the prisoner's neck he said: "That is choking me; fix it right. I want to die right." The black cap was pulled over his face, and all present said "Good-by." Wilson re sponding "Good-by; meet me in heaven." Deputy Sheriff B. P. Davis sprung the trap-dxr, and Thomas Wilson was burled into eternity. His neck was broken, and he died without a struggle.

Salvador Assistance, Which la Accepteil We Take a Hand A BLOODY BATTLE. About 400 Killed ou Both Hides The Nalvadorliin Apparently on Top. New York, July 28. A special to The Herald dsted Guatemala, July 25, says: The Guatemalan artillery, under Gen. Cayetona Sanchez with 800 men and the infantry under Gen. Manuel Aguilar to the number of 2,000 men made an attack on the forces of Snlva' dor, about thirty miles from the San Miguel boundary, on the morning of July 23, and drove them back into their own territory with a loss on both sides of about 400 men. Salvador lost one gatling gun and one held piece of artillery. Two of U-natU' niala's standards were triumphantly borne off by the Salvador troois. Gua temala's loss was by far the most severe, less than 150 men beim? killed 011 the side of Salvador. The fight took place on the morning after the parley under the flag of truce 011 the boundary, the two contending parties having been un able to come to any amicable under standing. The Table Turned. The defeat of the Salvadorians was ap parently only a ruse on their part, for two hours afterward the halvatorians, reinf ced with troops under Gen. Her-naiuiez,- nicknamed El Gauto (the cat), fiercely attacked the Guatemalan army. surprising them and forcing them to leat a hasty retreat, with severe loss of men, anus and ammunition. The re treat was for over twelve miles before a halt was called, and now the Salvator troops are encamped on Guatemalan soil within half a mile from the high road leading to Salvador from G uate uiala's capital. Nicaragua. Nicaragua has just sent offers of as sistance to Salvador of both money and troops. The latter offer has been ac cepted, ai:d a combined effort on the part of these two countries against Guatemala to stitle her pretensions may lead to a long bloody war in Central America. Guatemalan Again Defeated. Yesterday the Salvadorian general, Ezeta, brother of President Ezeta, defeated the Guatemalans again at Atezcateiupo Chingo, in Guatemala, twenty leagues from the frontier, oblig ing the Guatemalans to abandon tli.-ir fortifications at Coco. The Salvador ians captured an immense amount of duty, including correspondence between generals and Salvadorian traitors. Danger of a Revolution. A strong revolutionary movement is afoot iu Guatemala and" the constitu tional regime has been practically sus pended throughout the reimblic. The National palace here as well as Presi dent Barillas' resilience has been placed under strict military guard and martial law prevails throughout the republic. The Army In liad Shape. The Guatemalan army is demoralized and disorganized. Mobs are in complete possession of the suburbs of the capital, and the foreign colonies are organizing police force for the protection of the city. Strict Cansorahlp, No telegrams are permitted to leave Guatemala unless they bear the govern ment stamp that they have passed through the hands of a censor. 1 got this through by the connivance of a tele graph operator. Gen. hieta lias sent a personal chal lenge to President Barrillas, of Guate mala. According to a special to El Universal Gautcrnnlau agents are spreading false rejKirtB of victories. Gerommo 1'ou says that Honduras will take no active part, while Nicaragua and Costa Rica are privately friends of Salvador. WE TAKE A HAND. Cnrle Mam Give Guatemala a Pointer or T Nkw York, July 2b. On July 18 the Pacific Mail steamship company received information that tho steamer Coli'ma had Ix't'ii detained at San Jose de Guate mala, because it had arms on board de stined to certain ports in Salvador. Other advices informed the company that a launch containing the arms in transit to the steamer City of Sidney to be returned at nan rranclsco under reeinent with the government, bad been seized and the arms confiscated. The Pacific Mail company informed the slate department of this act of vio lence, whereupon united States author ities telegraphed our minister in Guate mala, denying the right of the govern ment to interfere with the vessel, and demanded the surrender of the steamer and her cargo. The Pacific Mail com pany has made a demand of full indem nity for this act of violence.

Guytos, Ga., July 2?. A bloody shooting affray occurred Friday after noon at Oliver, which resulted in the death of John Harris, deputy United States marshal, and John Cleary, a farmer, loth citizens of Screven county. The Oliver Farmers' Alliance gave a picnic there, which wa attended by an immense crowd from Scivveu, Bullock and Effingham counties. Col. Morgan Howies and Rev. J. M. Cress had spoken in the forenoon, and were followed in the afternoon by speeches from Hon. J. B Hnnnicutt and Senator S. D. Broad well. It was wJiilo Senator Broadwcll was speaking that Deputy Sheriff Harris and John Cleary met and were endeavoring to adjust some differences which existed between them, growing out of alliance matters. It appears that about the time that Harris was blackballed by the alli ance. Cleary had circulated derogatory reports about him. At tlio picnic he accused Cleary of this, when both men drew their pistols. The tiring began, which was kept up until every chandler vas emptied. Cleary was mortally wounded, having been shot in the left breast. At this point George Cleary, father of the wounded man, opened lire ou Har ris. lie iired four times, two of the balls taking effect, one in the right breast and the other in the abdomen, causing death.
