OLD KING To lie TuiiffJit l.eKiton He'll Not Hoaa Forget by the llritUh. London, April 23. Advices received here from Bnthoivt, the canitol of Gam bia, the British West African colony, seem to show that Great Britain lias another "little Avar'' upon her hands. The natiA-e King of Gambia, it appears, has for some time pat been in a some what disturlied condition of mind, and has been, consequently, committing or allowing to be committed a number of j deprivations and ubuses, from which tho j British colonists Avere the sufferers. tlie iJrmsh administrator, or governor of Gambia, Mr, Gilbert Thomas Ou ter, O. M. G., put up Avith the king's con duct as long as possible, and finally the administrator sent an envoy in the per son of a prominent English official up the Gambia river to the town which t,h native king makes his headquarters. This envoy was charged with the mis sion of informing the King of Gambia that he must behave himself and see that his subjects liehaA-ed themselves in future or else he might expect a visit of a disciplinary nature from the murine forces of tiio QniH'ii of England. The envoy faithfully carried out his orders and coiiiniunicated the admini strator's AieAAS to the king. The latter however, does not seem to have been at all alarmed by the administrator's threats, for he ordered the English envoy to be wized and bound, which was promptly done. The king then gaA'e in structions to the effect that tho unfor tunate envoy was to be sent back to Bathurst in n manner Avhich Avould be a warning to all other English envoys who might venture up tlie Gambia river. ineroupon Iry the kings directions, portions of tho envoy's chocks and por tions of his thighs were cut out by the) king's bodyguard, and later on tin; envoy and the pieces of flesh cut from his body were sent back to the administrator at Bathurst. With the envoy and tlie pieces or llesn the king sent Mr. Carter the following terse message: "this is the king's answer." The British administrator has taken prompt steps to send the king a suitable reply. Three British gunboats have already ascended t!.t Gambia river to avenge the outrage upon the envoy.

Kb Stoutly Denli'H A luit He la Alleged te Have Said. Neav Youk, April il.'l. The evening papers of this city Tuesday published a stat ement concerning ex -President Cleve land's views on the subject of free coin age. In Niilistanee it is as follows: State Treasurer Stephens, of Missouri, asked Cleveland to-day for a statement of his present attitude on the trilvcr question in view of the fact his recent letter on the subjivt has alienated many western Democrats from his support. Mr. Cleveland said: 'The Republican party is Very dosir- ous ot making the sir siiver question one or the lending issues of the campaign of 1892, and the question should lie taken up at once. It, should lie thoroughly discussed so that the people can bo edu cated up to it. "In this way it may be settled before 1802, and we Avill not be endangered by a divided party. Besides, I was daily in receipt of hundredii of letters from Dem ocrats in all parts of the country asking that 1 give an expression regarding free coinage. I felt that those friends were entitled to know how I stood. I have received many congratulations." Mr. Stevens asked if Mr. Cleveland AA-cre elected president in it he AA'ould veto a free coinage bill ptmsed by a Democratic con-"-ess, Mr. Cleveland replied that if ele5rl in 1112 such a bill would not reach him until 181)1. It is best not to cross a bridge until we come to it. What is bud for the country now may lie necessary in 181)4, As tho volume of tho business increases it is necessary to increase tlie currency, but changes should be made gradually. ' When the $2,000,000 a month bill was passed he feared it Avould injure business but it did not. When the present law for l,r00,noo coinage tier month wus passed ho thought it would drive gold out of the country, but he had been mis taken in both those respects, and with tho rapid strides the country is making it wa.i impossible to say what financial measures we may be ready for in 1811 1. He was still unable to see how free coin age could fail to injure the country. He favored a monetary conference of all ard of value. Ilr. Cleveland lleiiiea It. Ex-President Cleveland was asked Monday by a United Press reporter if Mr. Stephens' version of his conversation A-ith Mr. Ch'A-el.'ind. and his statement of the hitter's Aiews on the sih-or ques tion, were correctly reported. Mr. Cleve land said: "I have just read the report.
