For Her Aid . She Is to Receive Im
portant Concessions From the
NEW YORK, April 6.— dispatch to the
World from London says: The positive state-
ment came to your correspondent from a lead-
ing financier of the city (the money-making
part of London) that England had concluded
a treaty of alliance with Spain. His final
message was "Within ten days Europe will
be startled by the official announcement, of
this fact."
Continuing, the World correspondent says:
"I give this statement with the reserve which
its International Importance warrants, point-
ing out only that the sensitive money interests
of the city are often better informed on such
matters than in any other part of the com-
munity, except the highest official authority,
and that my informant is now, and for many
years has been, associated with the leading
financial enterprises, conspicuously the inter-
national ones, of London bankers. His name,
if I could mention it, would be recognized as
very authoritative by every New York banker,
as well as every London banker.
"Such a treaty would have a vastly im
portant bearing upon the continental situation.
It would have a commensurately important
bearing upon the Cuban question in the
United States. .... -.
"I quoted to my informant the statement in
the New York newspapers reaching me by
yesterday's mail that the Washington gov
ernment has received a semi-official intima
tion from the British ministry that Great
Britain would approve of the recognition by
the United States of Cuban belligerency.
"His reply was that exactly the contrary
is the case; that in the first place the Salis
bury ministry is disposed to do anything it
can with safety and in reason to
of the American government to Interfere in
either West Indian or South American affairs
—particularly in the West Indies, where
Great Britain herself has most Important in
terests—and that, secondly, Spain by this
treaty has made important concessions to
England In return for the latter's * more or
less active support of Spain in her conflict
with the Cuban, rebels.
"I can furnish no further details of this
alleged treaty than that, according to my in
formant, it will include giving to Great Brit-
tain the right to harbor and refit her fleets
in the Mediterranean ports of Spain. The
harbor of : Cartagena Is one of the finest on
the Mediterranean, and would shelter the
entire British navy.
"The Salisbury administration has openly
and officially stated one of its chief reasons
for the extraordinary movement, the advance
on the Soudan, accepted as hostile by France
and Russia, was to make a friendly diver
sion in behalf of Italy. All Europe has in
turn accepted this assurance .' as proof of
England's sympathy - with the triple alli
ance, and even ' Germany showed apprecia
tion of this fact by voting with Italy and
Austria to assist England's war with the
Khalifa. France and Russia, on the con
trary, are ablaze with hostile . indignation
against England because of this movement.
"From all this, the importance of an Anglo-
Spanish alliance to Great Britain Is obvious.
Neither Gibraltar nor Malta— England's only
two ports on the Mediterranean— capablo of
either harboring or refitting a fleet, but with
both the Italian and Spanish ports thrown
open to the British navy,. the French fleet at
Toulon would be at England's mercy, and
Russia could hardly make a Junction from the
Black sea with the ships of her French
"Such are the apparent reasons why Great
Britain should wish to make such an al
liance as above Indicated. .It would, more
over, leave her in safe possession of. Gib
House Will Pass the Senate Reso
WASHINGTON, April 6.— This promises to
be an exceedingly lively week In the house.
Tomorrow the house will vote on the adop
tion of the conference report on the Cuban
resolutions, which was debated on Friday and
Saturday. It is. a foregone conclusion that
the report will be adopted by an overwhelm
ing vote, but it is probable that there will
be more members recorded against it than
against the passage of the original resolu
Immediately afterward an effort will be
made to pass the river and harbor bill under
the suspension of the rules. The bill car
ries something over $9,000,000 in actual appro
priations, but authorizes contracts for almost
$40,000,000 ; additional. The Democrats would
like an opportunity to attack the bill because
of the enormous charge it makes upon the
treasury in the future, and they will make all
the resistance they are able to. Under the
rules, however, their opposition is not like
ly, to be effectual, and, moreover, there are
many features of the bill in which individual
Democrats are vitally interested. When a mo
tion is made to suspend the rules but thirty
minutes' debate are allowed on a side, but it
is certain that an extension of time will be
made to two or three hours.
Following the passage of the river and
harbor bill, Mr. Pickler, chairman of the in
valid pensions committee, probably will call
on Tuesday one of the general bills reported
by his committee. There are also the election
cases to be decided, one of which will un
seat Judge Cobb, of the . Fifth Alabama. I By
Wednesday it is expected that the fortifi
cations bill will be completed, and it probably
will occupy the attention of the house for the
remainder of the week.
The senate will continue consideration of
the postofflce appropriations j bill on Monday,
taking it up as soon as practicable ajter the
conclusion of the routine morning business.
It is hoped that the day will suffice to con
clude debate on . this bill. Senator Morgan
has given notice of a speech on Tuesday on
the Pacific railroad refunding question, and
probably will consume the greater part of
the day. The question is one to which the
senator has given a great* deal of attention
and on which *.- he ; has accumulated .: a - vast
amount of . information. He will - speak in
support of I his 1 resolution outlining a bill,
and In opposition to - the bill . under ' consid
eration by the Joint subcommittee of the two
houses. The remainder of the week will be
given up largely to the Indian appropriation
bill. This measure contains several features
which are ; certain . to . develop • controversy, the
principal one of .which: is the provision for
the discontinuance., of the .sectarian schools
for Indians, Including the Lincoln and Hamp
ton' institutions. There also will be an effort
in the senate to amend the bill by adding
the plan agreed upon by the committee on
Indian affairs for changing the system of
land holdings In the Indian territory, and
this will develop a sharp debate.
The naval appropriation bill will be reported
during the week, and will be in a condition
to be taken up as soon as the Indian bill
is out of the way. It is Senator Peffer's in
tention to call up his anti-bond resolution if
opportunity offers.
Panic in a Dime Museum Caused by
CHICAGO, April 5.— A flre, which bore a
very threatening aspect for a time, and cre
ated a panic, broke out this afternoon in a
Clark street dime museum. It being Easter
Sunday, the small theaters ln the building
were entertaining audiences. of more than the
usual proportions, at least 1,000 persons, who
occupied every available space, being pres
ent. The audiences at once made a rush for
the doors, and for a time pandemonium
reigned. The stage manager, Charles Bell,
took a commanding position, and urged the
people not to lose their heads, and to his
coolness and self-possession Is due the fact
that the patrons finally escaped without in-
The wildest confusion, however, prevailed
among the freaks and stage performers, but
all escaped without injury, many of the actors
running into the streets in their stage attire.
Probably the greatest excitement attending
the flre was caused by an Incident that hap-
pened on the third floor, where a collection
of huge snakes was on exhibition. Among
this collection was a boaconstrlctor twenty
feet in length. A female snake charmer had
charge of the reptiles, and when the fire
broke out she attempted to place them ln a
box. Calling for assistance, a stranger climb
ed Into the cage and offered to help capture
the snakes. He picked the largest one up
by the neck, and no sooner had he done so
than the snake, . recognizing it was ln the
hands of a stranger, coiled its huge form
about the man's arm. The snake charmer,
realizing the man's danger, told him to keep
a firm grip on the snake's neck. A terrific
struggle then ensued, but by the combined
efforts of the fair snake charmer and the
obliging stranger the boa constrictor was
finally jammed into a big box and secured.
The remainder -of the serpents were easily
The blaze was a hot one while it lasted,
but the fire department soon extinguished it,
with only nominal damage. The origin of the
fire is unknown.

NEW ORLEANS, La., April 6.— re
sponse to the application of the sheriff of
St. Landry parish and the mayor of Ope
lousas, Gov. Foster directed Brig. Gen. John
Glynn, commanding the state national guard,
to comply with the request of the St. Lan-

of the men were artillerymen in charge of
the Gatiing gun which accompanied the ex
pedition. The others went as infantry.
A special train will meet the party at La

Illinoisans Engaged in Youth Marry
in Their Old Age.
TOPEKA, Kan., April 6.— A romantic wed
ding took place at Sedan yesterday, in which
Squire Turner, of Cedarville, aged seventy
three, and Amanda M. Gillespie, of McLean
county, Illinois, aged sixty-three, were the
contracting parties. By appointment they met
at Sedan and were married by J. D. Mcßryan,
in the presence of Mr. Turner's children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Near
ly fifty years ago the bride knew the groom in
Illinois. She formed an attachment for him
which lasted all these years, and, although
Mr. Turner had removed to the West and mar
ried another, his present bride waited faith
fully for the time when he would again be
free. Those who are familiar with the case
and remember of the love early plighted in
Illinois say it is the most remarkable on rec
ord. Two months ago Squire Turner wrote to
Miss Gillespie. The proposition of marriage
was made and accepted without delay or cere
mony. The happy couple are now comfortably
housed ln their little cottage at Cedarville,
where they are surrounded with three genera
tions of the Turner family.

Empowered to Pass Upon All Ques-
Empowered to Pass Upon All Ques
tions in Dispute Should Be
BALTIMORE, Md., April s.— Cardinal Gib-
bons today gave out the following appeal for
arbitration . instead "of war, signed by him-
self and Cardinals Vaughan, of Westminster,
and Logue, of Ireland. The document is the
result of a correspondence upon the subject
between Cardinal Gibbons and his colleagues,
whcse names are affixed to the appeal, and is
issued on Easter Sunday because of the ap
propriateness of the day. - -
The appeal Is as follows: .*
"An appeal by the American, Irish and
English cardinals in behalf of a permanent I
tribunal of arbitration: y
"We, the undersigned, cardinals, represent-
atives of the Prince of Peace and of the Cath
olic church in our respective countries, invite
all who hear our voice Ho co-operate in the
formation of a public opinion which shall
demand the establishment of a permanent tri
bunal of arbitration, as a rational substitute
among the English-speaking races for a resort
to the bloody arbitrament of war.
"We are well aware that such a project is
beset with practical difficulties. We believe
that they will not prove to be insuperable if
the desire to overcome them be genuine and
general. Such a court existed for centuries,
when the nations of Christendom were united
ln one faith. And have we not seen nations
appeal to that same court for its judgment in
our day? y.
■" "The establishment of a •'.'.
composed, may be, of trusted representatives
of each sovereign nation, with power to nomi
nate judges and umpires, according to the
nature of the differences that arise, and a
common acceptance of general principles, de-
fining and limiting the Jurisdiction and sub-
ject matter of such a tribunal, would create
new guarantees for peace that could not fail
to Influence the whole of Christendom.
"Such an International court of arbitration
would form a second line of defense, to be
called Into requisition only after the ordinary
resources of diplomacy had been exhausted.
It would at least postpone the outbreak of
hostilities until. reason and common sense- had
formally pronouuced their last word. This is
a . matter of which the constitution and pro-
cedure must be settled i by.' governments.*-
«■« "But as '• governments are becoming more
and more' Identified with the aspirations, and
moulded by the desires of the people, an ap-
peal In the first instance must be addressed
to the people. .',* [ '.ry'"^ "1"' .7"-l '- .-■' :'7._y
.'"We do not hesitate on our part lift up
our united voices a'-sd "proclaim to all who
aro accustomed to hearken to our counsels,
that it is a sign of a divine Influence at work
in their midst when ; 'Nation shall not lift
up sword against nation, neither shall they
be exercised any more In war' (Isaiah, ii., 4);,
lor ; it was written of a future time, 'Com*.
ye and behold the works '• of the ' Lord, what
wonders He hath done upon the earth, mak-
ing wars to cease . even to/ the end of the
earth' (Psalms, xlv., VUf^ 1.. *. . .
. "Others may base their appeal upon motives
which touch your . worldly . interests, your
prosperity, your world-wide Influence and au
thority in the affairs of men. S The . Catholic
church recognizes the legitimate force of
such motives in the natural order, and
blesses whatever tends to the real progress
and elevation of the race. But our main
ground of appeal rests upon the known char
acter and will of the Prince of Peace, the
living founder, the divine head of Christen
dom. It was He who declared that love for
■the brotherhood is a "second commandment
like. unto the first. It was He who announced
to the people the praise and reward of those
who seek after peace and pursue it.
'Blessed,' said He, 'are the peacemakers, for
they shall be called the children of God'
(Matthew v., 9). J A

with us in pressing their convictions and de-
sires upon their respective governments by

Mrs. Dimmlck tomorrow have been completed.
Admission to the church will be by card only,
and not £ more 'than' thirty guests will 7be

There is still a great deal of speculation
about the time at which the ceremony will
to"; performed, but no information upon that
subject has yet been allowed to leak out.
Even the guests do not know the hour. '
"You see," said Secretary Tlbbets today,
"Gen. Harrison does not want a crowd to
be around the church when they go in and
out. ' It is not that he desires to make him
self exclusive, but that he does not like
Mrs. Dimmlck to be subjected to the eager
gaze of people who are not in any way in
terested in her or in him. It is quite a pri
vate matter. If people knew the hour there
would be a throng about the church through
which they could hardly make their way."
Gen. Harrison took breakfast at the Fifth
Avenue hotel with Col. Corbln, U. S. A. He
had at luncheon Daniel Ramsdell, who was
marshal of the District of Columbia during
the Harrison administration; Lieut. Parker
and Secretary Tlbbets. After luncheon the
party called upon Mrs. Dlmmick at the home
of her Bister, Mrs. Gray.
W. H. H. Miller, attorney general during
Harrison's administration, arrived today, and
spent some time with the prospective bride
groom. Ex-Secretary of War Stephen B. El
kins arrived tonight. Senator Redfleld Proc
tor and ex-Secretary of State John W. Foster
will reach New York tomorrow evening.
Gov. , Morton, who will be present at the wed
ding ceremony, will also arrive tomorrow.
Mrs. Morton cannot attend, as she is to give
a tea in Albany tomorrow afternoon.
While It is not known what Gen. Har
rison will" present to the ushers at his wed
ding tomorrow, he has already made his
present to Gen. Tracy. This is a stick of
j unusual interest. It is of plain wood with
the head gold mounted. This stick was pre
sented to Gen. Harrison by a gentleman of
Louisiana, who was minister to Argentina
under the Harrison administration. The ori-
ginal owner of the stick, whose name is not
known, . Gen. Harrison refusing to state it,
enlisted as a Union soldier under Gen. Tracy.
Gen. Harrison was presented with this stick
some years ago. ,"

rounding the escort. The attempt proved use
less, and they were repulsed with numerous
loss. Gomez was encamped at the time at
the plantation of Yabu Cito. ' He left his camp
at 3 o'clock In. the afternoon, but the direc
tion he took is . unknown. He effected a

They Profit by the Raines Law in
New York. -
NEW YORK, Ap*ril s.— The Raines liquor
law was enforced In' this city today. .. It was
apparent all over the city that the saloon-
keepers had made their minds up to take no .
chances under the existing condition of af
fairs, for there was no attempt to evade the
provisions of the law, and no violations were
reported at police headquarters. On every
street the interiors of the drinking places
were exposed to full view, the blinds and cur-
tains being so arranged as to give a clear
prospect of what was going on inside. The
saloons were, In almost every instance, de
serted even by the proprietors and their bar-
Reports had It that the up- town hotels were
profiting largely by the changed order of
things, and that most of them were doing a
rushing, though legitimate business. None of
them sold liquor over the bars, but the ma
jority, especially those which have bars In
their cafes, dispensed liquors with lunches
and meals. Reports from all over the state
indicate that the new law was quite generally
enforced. Very few proprietors defied the law.
Those doing so were promptly arrested. •_

WASHINGTON, April 5.-Secretary Carlisle
has written the following letter on the sub
ject of his candidacy for the presidential nom
ination at the Chicago convention:
. Charles .R. Long, Esq., Chairman Demo-
cratic State Central Committee, Louisville:
I Your favor of March 30, in which you say
in substance that many of my friends in Ken-
tucky and -elsewhere desire me to become a
candidate before the approaching national
, Democratic convention for the nomination for
the office of president, and requesting me to
give, "some authoritative or definite expres
sion" upon the subject, was duly received,
and has been maturely considered. Many
communications upon the same subject and
of similar import have been received from
friends in different parts of the country, and
while very grateful for these numerous ex-
pressions of confidence and esteem upon the
part of my Democratic fellow citizens. I
have not been able to reach the conclusion
that the existing conditions require me to
comply with their requests by authorizing
them to announce me as a candidate for the
presidential nomination. While I feel a pro-
found interest in the welfare of my party, I
am much more concerned about its declara
tion of principles than in its selection of can-
didates, because, in my opinion," its failure
or success at the election, as well as' Its ca
pacity for useful service In the country in
the future, depend upon the position it takes
or omits to take upon the public questions
now engaging the attention of the people, and
especially the questions affecting the mone
tary system of the country and the character
and amount of taxation to be imposed upon
our citizens. Its position upon these and oth
er subjects having been agreeed upon and
clearly and distinctly announced, the conven
tion ought to have no difficulty in selecting an
acceptable candidate who will fairly repre-
sent Its views; and, in order that its delibera
tions may be embarrassed as little as possi
ble by the contentions of rival aspirants and
their friends, I think my duty to the party
will be best performed by declining to parti-
cipate in a contest for the nomination. The
obligations assumed when I accepted my
present official position require me to devote
my entire time and attention to the public
interests committed to my charge, and I shall
I continue to discharge the duties imposed upon
me to the best of my ability, and in such
manner as will, ln my Judgment, most cer
tainly promote the true interests of the coun-
try; and, if, in the opinion of | my fellow
Democrats in | Kentucky, my services entitle
me to " their \ commendation and approval, I .
would regard 'their indorsement of my public
course as an ample reward for -the little I
have been able to accomplish in behalf of
honest administration and a sound financial
policy. With many thanks for your kind
letter, I am, very truly,
—J. G. Carlisle. !

His Action in Accord With the Dig-
nity of the Offlce.
LOUISVILLE, April The Courier-Jour-
nal will tomorrow publish the following cdi-
torial on the letter of Secretary Carlisle, made
public tonight: i
■ The position which Mr. Carlisle takes is one
entirely in accord with the dignity of the
office of president, and- with the duties of the
office of secretary of the treasury. He de-
clines to participate in a contest for a nor
n holding that the matter of first mo-
ment is the declaration of the party's princi
ples. He desires the indorsement of his
services by his state, and though he does not
say so in bo many words, if his state shall
present his name to the national convention,
on a satisfactory" platform, he will undoubt
edly accept that responsibility.
This is a matter of exceptional moment at
once to the Democratic party, and to the en»
tire people of the United States. To the Dem-
ocartic party Is brings squarely home the
issue whether it is to continue to be the
party of Jefferson, Jackson, Benton and
Cleveland, or whether it is to set up strange
gods and lend the , priceless prestige of its
name and history to an alien faith.
. To the people of the United States it is of
vital concern, for, upon the decision within
the Democratic party of the issue thus forced
upon it depends the one possibility that this
country shall have a presidential candidate,
backed by the organized resources of either
of the two great political parties, a man with
a universally conceded clear comprehension
of the nature and necessities of a sound
monetary system as indispensable to the
protection of national integrity and material
prosperity, and with a record,- not of pro-
fession but of performance. In itself at this
time the only unimpeachable proof of prac
tical, unswerving and unassailable fidelity to
the principles of such a system. Kentucky
is ready. It needs no campaign to bring Ken-
tucky to Carlisle. Let the convention be
called— sooner the better— and the state
which took the lead for an honest tariff will
take the lead for an honest currency.
He Has a Knife With Which to
Puncture Bradley's Boom.
FRANKFORT, Ky., April There will be
a contest between the friends of Gov. Brad
ley and Congressman Hunter at the Repub
lican state convention in Louisville, April 15.
Hunter was manager of the campaign when
Bradley was elected governor last year, and
charges the governor with ingratitude during
the past winter in not helping Hunter in his
senatorial contest. | Hunter is now a candi
date for renomlnation for congress and for
delegate at large to the St. Louis convention.
Hunter is a pronounced McKinley man and
it is charged at the state house that he
would not follow instructions for Bradley if
the . state convention adopts Bradley resolu
tions. While the friends of Gov. Bradley are
said to be opposing Hunter 'for congress as
well as for delegate to St. Louis, the friends
of Hunter are said to be working for the
adoption of McKinley resolutions in the coun
ty and district conventions, and that the
final test of strength will come at the state
convention. " , '
