Cwawnt m tlie TVlrgraas from OoT.rcor
Morrill Probability That a Statement
WU1 Be Askew by Cable from the Coo
sa la Nearest the frceae "aaia Explains
Her Delay In tbe Alliaaei Matter Ho
Klaley ritioa ra silver Officially
WAsniXGTOH, March Si. It was said at
the White House yesterday afternoon that
the telegram from Governor Morrill, of
Kansas, urging the president to take ac
tive measures " at once for the protection
and release of ex-United States Consul
Waller, reported to have been unjustly
imprisoned by the French government in
Madagascar under the sentence ot a court
martial, had not yet been received by the
president. The state department has had
no confirmation of the report from United
States Consul Wetter, at Tamatare, nor
from Mr. Campbell, oar consul at Mau
ritius, which is the nearest cable point to
Madagascar. It is probable that the gov
crnor's message may cause the state de
partment to cable to one of these consuls
for an account of the affair, instead of
waittan until a report comes t hand
through the mails from this remote point,
which though it might be suCMcnt in an
ordinary cuso would hardly meet the re
quirements of a case involving the im
prisonment of an American citizen.
. Morrill's Coarse Ratbi-r UnusfSmL
Governor Morrill's coursa in addressing
himself directly to the prfe-ilnnc in such
a matter is said to be cnusuil, but may
perhaps be based npon the prcceJcut set
by tho state department ia c.illin? upon
tbe governor af Louisiana and tho gav
crnor of Colorado recently to protect citi
zens of foreign countries within their re
spective states. There seems to be an im
pression, based upon letters alleged to
have been written by Mr. Waller to
friends in this country as we.'l as to the
state department, renouncing his Amer
ican citizenship, that he has lost this cit
izenship. Jio Such Letter Rreelved.
No such letters have been received at
the rtate department, and if there was
any such communication in a private let
ter it would carry little weight. Waller
has tho reputation of being a keen, alert
business man. He was nn excellent con
sular officer and it is inconceivable to the
department officials that he would sur
render voluntarily his American citizen
ship. Spain Explains Iter Delay.
Tho state department has received from
Spain a satisfactory explanation of the de
lay in replying toSecretary Gresham's de
mand for a disavowal of the Allianca Inci
dent. Secretary Gresham now feels sure
that the reply will be hero without any
further delay than is necessary for Spain
to make the justifiable investigation. He
is also confident that the reply, when re
ceived, will be an adequate compliance
with his demands.
He Staads on the 11 tnk or the Republican
Platform of 1893.
Washington, March 28 As there has
been of late a good deal of comment and
speculation concerning tho position of
Governor McKir.lcy on the silver ques
tion, it can be stated authoritatively
that Governor McKinley's attitude Is ac
curately expressed by the latest pronounce
ment of tbe Republican party, which in
its silver plunk in the platform adopted
in Minneapolis June 10, 189 J, said:
"The American people, from tradition
and interest, favor bimetallism, and the
Republican party demands the use of
both gold and silver as standard money
with such restrictions and under such
provisions to be determined by legislation,
as will sucure the maintenance of the
parity of values of the two metals; that
the purchasing and debt paying power
of tbe dollar, whether of silver, gold or
paper, shall be at all times cquaL .
"The interest, of the producer of the
country its farmers and tho working
men demand that every dollar, paper or
coin, issued by the government shall be
as good as any other. We commend the
wise and patriotic steps already taken by
our government to secure an international
conference to adopt such measures as will
insure a parity of value between gold and
silver for use as money throughout the

WasniXGTON, March SS. W. S. Dcvoe,
traveling inspector for the bureau of
animal industry, was detailed by Secre
tary Morton to investigate tbe report that
plcuro-pneumonia existed In Kansas. The
report of the inspector has been received
and states positively there is no plcuro
pneumonia in the state and that the sus
pected animals areatree from the disease.
A thorough investigation was made by
him in Kansas. His dispatches to Secre
tary Morton state most positively that
there was nothing in the history of the
animals, nothing in their appearance, and
nothing discovered on post mortem exam
ination, either by the local veterinarians
or by the department inspector, which in
dicated even remotely that they were af
fected with contagious pleuro-pncumonla.
The officials at tbe agricultural depart
ment have maintained from the first that
U is impossible for the disease in question
to break out in Kansas.
