Washixgtoit, March 23 The cabinet
meeting yesterday lasted but two hours,
every member being present except Secre
tary Carlisle, who was in New York. The
session is said to have been uneventful.
thereby disappointing the expectations of
those who looknd for some decided aggres
sive action in foreign affair. It is also
said that there was an entire absence of
f riction between the members, although
the principal subjects under discussion
relating to the various complications in
which we have become Involved with cer
tain foreign countries were well calcu
lated to exhibit divergence of individual
views. It is presumed that the attitude
of Great Britain toward Venezuela and
Nicaragua was canvassed, but as far as
can be gathered the secretary of state had
no new matter touching this to impart.
Whea Our Ova Ox Was tiored.
It was not believed to be necessary to
tak any positive action In the absence of
an explicit statement of the purposes of
Great Britain. As far as tho Xicaraguan
matter is concerned it is not believed that
our government is disposed to take issue
with GrcatBritaiu as to her liht todemand
an indemnity fur the unjust treatment
of her consular agent and citizens, inas
much as the United States has already re
peatedly gone on record ns insisting oa
its own right in such cases to secure re
paration for improper treatment of its
citizens. Tho only point upon which
there can be u question is as to the meth
od of collecting tho indemnity, but there
is reason to believe that, in view of tho
cabinet, the subject need en use no real
trouble, as Nicaragua doubtless will agree
to meet reasonable demands from Great
Britain, when it ft made clear to her by
our deparment of statu that she cannot
otherwise rely upon tho moral support of
the United States.
I'eraona Noa Ciatas Get a Respite.
The situation as to Venezuela is be
lieved to be giving the cabinet more con
cern by far, but, as already stated, it is
tho dis;xit:on to take no arbitrary net ion
in tho absence of a statement from Great
Britain. In view of the moro. weighty
matters now engaging tho attention of
tho administration it is stated that for
eign ministers in Washington are likely to
bo at least for tho present left undis
turbed in their relations with our govern
ment. No answer beyond a purely per
functory one acknowledging tho receipt of
our communication and paomlsing to
inako investigations has been returned by
Spain to our ilemand in tho Ailiitnua af
fair, and while under ordinary conditions
this might tie resented by our government,
a disposition was shown by tho cabinet to
m:ike all duo allowance for tho faet that
at a result of the overturningof tho Span
ish cabinet the subordinates there dare
not do anything to compromise tho in
War Talk Simply Wind.
All of which seems to indicate that the
war talk is harmless juit an exhibition
ot pntrioti:m that will not figure in the
rcnlwirkof getting at a solution of tb.i
littlo dilllculties that nre now claiming
the attention of the statu department. The

NEW TREATY ABOUT THE SEALS.
Consremlonal Failure to Appropriate
31 ultra Negotiations Necesary.
A nrw treaty Is to be negotiated between
Great Britain nnd tho United States relat
ing to the seal fisheries, the meetings to be
held in this cliy and to bo participated in
by representatives of Canada as well as
the United States and Great Britain.
Owing to tho prolonged siege of illness
through which Secretary Gresham has
passed, which may make it desirablo for
him to take a rest, tho meeting will prob
niiiy lie defeired uutil the summer or falL
The projected treaty is rendered necessary
by the inaction of congress on the Behring
sea seizure claims. The original claims
which, with interest, amounted to fTSO,
COO, were scaled down to tl'Jo.OJU, and Pres
ident Cleveland advised payment in his
messago to congress, but an amendment
to carry out tiio president's recommenda
tion was defeated. It was then sought to
provide for an international commission
to adjust tho terms of settlement, but
this, too, faiied, leaving the matter still
The purpose of the treaty would be
therefore to create a commission to hear
all the evidence and determine tho
amount of indemnity to ho paid the seized
sealers. After being signed tho treaty
will have to be sub mitted to tho senate

tra session this cannot be accompiisned
before next December. Whiie it is felt
thai this is an unfortunate delay in ad
justing the claims, yet it appears to be the
ouly means of advancing them to an
honorable settlement consistent with the
kindly relations existing between the
United States and Great Britain. An
other phase of the situation which may
come up simultaneously with the ad
justment of the claims is the framing of a
new modus Vivendi, or other means of
prot.-cting the sea! herds in Behring sea.
Kxpcrts appear to agree that the 6ea!s
will bo exterminated soon unless ener
getic steps are taken, as the protection af
forded by the regulations agreed on by
the Paris court of arbitration seem to be
insufficient, even when most carefully ex
ecuted. A longer closed season is
deemed essential. Moreover, the evi
dence secured since tho Paris tribunal sat
shows that the sixty-mile limit from the
seal islands, within which the seals can
not bo killed, is not enough to secure pro
tection. There is some doubt, however,
as to this matter being made a subject of
negotiation at present, although the en
tiro question is under consideration in

FESTIVITY FOLLOWS FIGHTING.
End of the latest Revolutiou la Tera Cele
brated Joyously at Lima.
Lima, March 23 The streets of Lima
have a festive appearance. Revolution
ary troops aro fraternizing with the resi
dents, and cries of "Viva Peru,"
"Viva Picrola," mound through the
streets. Bands are playing the
national anthem. All this follows
dreadful scenes of bloodshed. The change
in the government is the result of a three
days battle in Lima. The revolutionary
forces, led by Pierola, cn tered tho city at
dawn Sunday morning. Their entrance
was not suspected by the guards in the
city, as a heavy mist concealed their
movement. When tho forces reached
the principal squares they seized the
Church of the Towers and other favorable
positions. Immediately a desperate battle
began, which lasted all through the day
and part of tho night.
It was intensely dark, and as the gas
lupply was cut tho streets, houses, and
other buildings were without illumina
tion. When the fighting ceased at night
drunken soldiers roamed through the
streets, firing shots recklessly. The bat
tle was renewed at 6 o'clock Monday
morning, and continued all through tho
day. The night was one of terror. Depre
dations by tho government forces marked
the openingof hostilitieson Tuesday. The
troops sacked the Union and National
clubs and many of the shops. Then tho
diplomats and the papal nuncio. Mgr.
.Mucchi, intervened. An armistice was
arranged for twenty -four hours, and dur
ing this time the war was brought to an
end by a compromise.
Ihe provisional government, formed
through the intervention of the diplo
mats and the papal n uncio, has been or
ganized and is already in operation.
Senor Candio is provisional president and
also acts as minister of foreign affairs.
The Caceres regime is represented in the
new government by Luis Felipe Villa
nan and Kieardo V. Kspanoza. For the
revolutionary party Biistamente Y. Saia
zar and Dr. Malpartida have been se
lected. As a result of the three days fighting
more than 1.53.) combatants were killed
and wounded on both sides. The Kcd
Cross ambulance service rendered great
aid during the Dot t la Many of the sol
diers, ignorant of the significance of the
symbol on the ambulances, fired on them.
During the fighting all of tho foreign lega

A Traitor to the Cause A.I1 Die Time.
The statement now comes that the in
surrectionists have discovered thnt Gen
eral Sanguilly, for about eight years, lias
been receiving i2 JO per mouth from the
Spanish government to keep it advised of
any plots .-.gainst the government by tho
Cubing. In support of this statement is
quoted tho fact that while now in prison
General Sanguilly is daily visited by
prominent ladies of Havana, that lie is
daily banqueted in prison, that his fam
ily visits him ac v. ill, and that his sou
sleeps with him nightly.

The insurrectionists, who thus are con
vinced that they Here betrayed by Sin
guilly, claim now to have learned more of
tho collection of funds by Sanguilly.
Manuel Garcia, the outlaw under au
edict of Spain, would have had naught to
fear from a new government by tho insur
rectionists and hi'iico desired their success
in the present effort for freedom. It is
now staUnl by a man just arrived here
that the relic Is have learned that G.trcia,
shortly before his death early this month,
offered General 'Marti, the hcui of tho
revolution, the sum of 5.0X.

General Marti, it is said, refused. Gnrcia
subsequently gave the money to General
Sanguilly for the same purpose. Soon
afterward G.ircia was killed, and the
re I els, it is asserted, believed that
Snnguil'y kept or turned over to tho
Si.'anh-h government this and other
moneys collected by him. The insur
rectionists interested nre now determined
that if Sanguilly is released his life shall
pay tho forfeit for what tliey deem to be
bis treachery to their cause.
DISAPPEARANCE OF SOME RIFLES.
Spanish Arms T.tke Themaelvea Wings
and Fly Away Cuban Situation.
What has become of U,700 rifles that have
been for two years past stored in Havana?
That is a question that is said now to be
puzzling tho Spanish government. Two
years ago the agent in Havana of a Span
ish arms manufacturing company con
tracted with the Cuban government to
supply 10,00 rifles. Before the delivery.
however, a rival gun firm won over the
government, and when Agent Larranaga,
for the original contractors, delivered his
goods they were refused on the pretext
of some defect, and the other firm's goods
Tho rejected arms were stored away and
recently the government bethought itself
to ascertain the condition and where
nliouts ot the stored arms. The raid on
the storehouse has recently been made
public and the alleged fact that only
seventy-five guns were found. It now
transpires that there were only 300 rifles
found of the 10,001 rifles stored.
For the next two months it is stated
there will tie slow progress in tho revo
lution, as tho Cubans do not intend now
to assume the aggressive. Early in June,
the opening of the rainy season, the Span
ish troops not acclimated will be on the
field exposed to the elements, and yellow
fever is relied upon to move strongly
against their force and to kill more troops
than the Cubans might with rifles. The
new Sanish guns of delicate mechanism
are expected to rust and fail in the heavy
rains, while the Cuban riues of American
mnkc are relied upon for better service.
News from Havana gives a report from
Santiago that General Garrich niudo a
sortie from Bain last Mouday with a
force of 100 cavalry and ISO infantry. The
troops overtook the rebels at Soils and
killed five men in a short time. Among
the dead were the rebel leaders Manuel
and Vacheco, and the aide-de-camp Se

INDICATIONS OF IMPROVEMENT.
Dua tt Cn. Say They Grow Mara Dfctlnet la
She BnaJaeaa World.
Nxw York, March 23. It G. Dun &
Cc's weekly review of trade says: Indi
cations of improvement in business grow
more distinct. ' The most obtrusive of
them the speculative advance in cotton
and in stocks is the least reliable, nor
can either of these be said to reflect actual
improvement in business conditions.
Kail road earnings are scarcely better.and
speculation is largely based on expecta
tions ol a more erxective monopoly in
coal and some other products.
More valuable indications are that the
volume of domestic trade gains a little,
money is in much better legitimate de
mand, and the force of hands at work
gradually increases in some industries
and in others is restricted only by strikes,
which are presumably temporary. The
rise in cotton to 6 31 cents seems to have
scarcely any contact with the facts of de
mand and supply, bnt a very substantial
basis, nevertheless, if, as some maintain,
more cottan had been sold in this country
for future delivery than could be pro
duced here until another crop comes.
The rise in wheat, which started with
the report of wheat in farmers hands, has
been followed by reaction, so that prices
are lower then they were prior to that re
port. Corn has not followed, but after a
rise to 61 5-9 cents holds the price of a week
ago. Pork has declined zf cents per bar
rel, and lard 10 cents per 100 pounds. The
advance in wages of coke workers raises
the cost of fuel lor a large proportion of
the Iron manufacturers, but as yet docs
not affect prices of iron or its products, as
no increase in dem.uid appears.
The rise in cotton has stimulated buying
of goods and given confidence to agents.
Heavy transactions and some advances in
price appear in southern coarse goods, bat
not as yet in the finest. While many or
ders are detained by labor difficulties,
there hi also much complaint of cancella
tions. Sales ot wool gradually decrease.
