I minted at Havana. Justifies the firing: on
Diplomatic ComDlicationS Very i the Allianca on the around that she ran
mcnta of the Spanish nnvr, and proceeds:
Xist it ob known, then, that our navy
of today is the same as that of panto.
Trafalgar and Callao. It is (he same that
the Austrian admiral, Tegsthoff, pointed
out to bis officers to be imitated before
sinking the Italian fleet at Liasa. They
are of the same race and blood as those
who fought and fell before San Sebastain
on the ships that were unprotected; the
same who, at Pugalugalon and Jlelilla,
punished the Moors of Mendadan and
111 IT for their insults; the same that on
board the Saches Baraosta, in the Alcedo
and the Santa Maria defied and con
quered the tenipesta of the ocean, and the
same that during the late naval review
received universal admiration.
'Finally, they are the same men that
on sea and land are unconquerable. It
would be well that the United States
should bear this in mind, so that the
prestige of that nation may not suffer in
the contentions that may arise through
adventurers and traitors who make war
on Spain and her noble sons; and let that
nation remember that the laws or neu
trality were niade for nations that know
how to respect them."
But talk like this does not sink ships
and Senator Frye is evfdently sorry that
the question is likely to be settled with
out the aid of powder and ball. Be said:
"It looks as if Spain would make the re
quired apology, and if so, all will soon be
settled. I bad hoped it would be other
wise and that Spain would assume such
a belligerent tone that it would b neces
sary for the United States to go over and
take possession of Cuba. Wo certainly
ought to have that island in order to
round up our possessions as they should
be, and if we cannot buy it I for one
should like to have an opportunity to ac
quire it by conquest."

Washixgtos, March 21. The Central
American, complications, the Mexico
Guatemala difficulty and the Spanish
insult to Old Glory are the reigning sen-
ttions of the day, to which l added the
break between Gresham and the Hawaii
an minister. Between them all it would
seem that our diplomatic talent in the
state department would find "foemen
worthy of its steel," cr something to that
effect. The alleged British demand on
Nicaragua, has fallen somewhat into the
background, because there is a shrewd
suspicion that the telegram from Man
agua had its origin in the United States,
and that John Bull has not made any
such peremptory demand. That is the
belie" expressed by a good many of the
' Looks Like War ia Mexico.
It begins to look as though it will be
Impossible to avert war between Mexico
and Guatemala. Opinion ia freely ex
pressed in diplomatic circles here that
serious trouble is almost certain to result.
Seuor Komcro, the Mexican minister, ex
presses a lively hope that tho points in
dispute may be settled, and so do the dip
lomats from Guatemala, but this hope is
not generally entertained. A war between
those two coun'ries can have only one
termination. It will end in the extension
of the boundaries of Mexico farther south,
the subjugation of the strongest Central
American country, and its elimination
from the map of independent nations. It
has long born the dream of Mexico to ac
quire Central America, and she seems to
be in the way of a realization of the na
tional desire. The war spirit is said to
have again burst out in Mexico with in
Qatatloa Betweca the Countries,
According to Mexican Minister Romero:
"Tlii pending question between Mexico
and Guatemala is a very plain one. Kach
country claims that under the do facto
line existing before tho treaty of 1SS2 sho
was in possession of the disputed terri
tory, aud both agree that it belongs to
Mexico under the lino marked by the
treaty. As the treaty line is paramount
Mexico considered the action of Guate
mala in sending an armed force to destroy
the log camps established there by Mex
icans who were rutting wood under
grants of the Mexican government, wcir&
the logs and amt the men, an unwar
ranted invasion of her territory and has
asked Guatemala to apologize for it, and
to pay an indemnity to the victims of the
Tho Case of Tharatoa of Hawaii.
And now we come to the Hawaiian mat
ter. There is no doubt that Thurston's
recall has been asked and that long
en .ugh ago to have received a reply be
cause, as alleged, Thurston told the re
porters something before he gave the in
formation to the state department. This
is variously declared to be always wrong.
and wrong only according to what he
told. Senator Halo has been among the
most zealous defenders of the Hawaiian
republic on the flo-n of the senate, but
he does not support Thurston in the mat
ter of the minister's reported recall at the
instance of Secretary Gresham on the
facts so far as developed. If Thurston
published diplomatic correspondence be
fore ulving it to the state department.
says Hale, he was clearly in tho wrong.

"1 bad hojwj." he continued, "that
nothing more would happen to strain our
re arluns with the Dole government, for I
b . .eve it is a good government, and that

such in fact as well as in name not like
these Central American republics, includ

tary despotisms. it really makes little
difference whether Thurston has violated
omciai etiquette or not, it ne is persona

not. But if it doesn't like It Dole will

take a leave of absence just as Porter, our
minister to Italy, did when Baron Fava
was recalled as the result of tho killing of
his fellow countrymen In New Orleans.
AS TO THE CASE OF CUBA.
A Little Patriotic Mow from a Havaaa

Cuba is a sweet morsel to a good many
American statesmen, who would like to
find some plan to raise the American flag
over the island. Probably there is nu.x.2
agreement on this po'nt nraonsr Amer
icans than on any other in which the
question Is acquisition of new t -rritory.

BARRAKCO, Peru, March al. The rebels
and government forces have been engaged
in battle in Lima for three days. The
attack by the rebels began about 4 o'clock
Sunday morning. The rebels were com
manded by their chief, Pierola, assisted
by Durand, Ore and others. All com
munication with Lima has been cut off
and it was impossible to learn the
strength of either forca. All reports are
based on rumors and speculation. It is
known, however, that there was heavy
firing Sunday and Monday.
Two distinct explosions were heard
Monday, but the placd whore they oc
curred is not known. There was a re
newal of the firing at 5 o'clock Tuesday
morning and It continue! six hours. It
is reported that the fighting then ceased
so as to permit the contending forces to
bury their dead and care for the wounded.
Iho rebels, so report savs, are awaiting
reinforcements which are expected to
reach tho suburbs of Lima very som.
The rebel l'ws is thirty-live iu-m killed
this side of Lima.

Evaxstos, Wyo., March 21. Last even'
CJg an explosion of gas occurred in the
lfocky Alountain Coal and Iron com
pany's mine No. 5 at Red Canjgp, several
miles from here, with terrible results.
James B. Bruce, mine foreman and ex.
County commissioner of Uintah county,
was Instantly killed by flying timbers,
as also were four others.
As found the others are: William Sel
lers, Jr., ropa runner; J.Clark; Edward
Coach, head carpenter. The other man
has not been identified. All were killed
by flying timbers.
From twenty-five to fifty men were in
the mine ot the time of the explosion. At
this writing they have not been rescued
and are certainly dead.
O. B. Maltby, Andrew Mason and J.
Oawigrd are -aadly in jura, but may.aal

this mine and most of them had gone out.
NO LONGER A WHISKY TRUST.
Gen. ataXalta Clvea Bia Vie its of tho Taa-
CHICAGO, March 21 General McXulta
and E. F. Lawrence, receivers for the
whisky trust, were in consultation and
the former stated that he was utterly at a
loss to understand the motive of the sen
sational articles published in the morning
papers or the authority for their origin.
These articles implied and with the aid
of the very useful "it is alleged" stated
that the yicking open of the whisky
trust safe at Peoria had supplied proof
against the late managers of various
crimes, and given the receivers the foun
dation for suits against said managers
aggregating hundreds of thousands.
He was then asked what truth there
was in the statement published in the
New York Sun of March 14 that the Wine
and Spirit Gazette would fight the organ
ization of a new whisky trust to the
death. He said: "The Spirit Distilling
association, formed of r eb. 21, is not
whisky trust. There has been no whisky
trust formed and there is no intention of
forming one. There has simply been
conference among the spirit distilling in
terests of the country to prevent the enor
mous losses that were being sustained.
Their agreement prevonts tho possibility
of a trust. The essential principle under
which they act is that tho price i of spirits
in the market shall be based absolutely
upon the cost of production.
"The producers are to have a profit of
one-half of 1 per cent, per proof gallon for
their spirits, and no more. They are en
titled to this as a legitimate profit, and it
may be fairly inferred that this clamor is
raised for the benefit of the stock gam
biers in New York. They seek to destroy
the business interest of the receivership,
that they may profit on their speculations.
If that interest can be eliminated the
business of the receivership will be an ab
solute success, and as it appears now its
success is assured anyhow, and they are
simply growling because they aee defeat
in iront ol them."

certain specified limits. Tboso general
terms have been brought about by the
efforts of Lnited States Minister Denby
in China and Dun in Tokio. It was even
feared at a late day that Li's mission

through the activity of the United States
minister, showing that the mission would
otherwise prove futile.
The general terms of Li Hung Chang's
authority are to cede territory, pay a cash

Corea, and arrange new treaty relations
with Japan by which Japan's extra tern
