GENERAL TRADE DEPRESSED.
Taadeacy at Prion U Mill Downward and
' Drawn Smaller.
New Tors, June 6. Brad street says'
Gem-mi trade, continues depressed in al
most all lines. The demand Is smaller
than a week ago, and requests for and of
ferings of commercial paper have de
creawd. Mercantile collections continue
complained of, and the tendency of prices,
particularly of cereals, sugar, coffee, pork
products, cotton and cofton goods, and
Iron and steel continues downward.
There is a moderate incrcaaa in demand
for dry goods at Chicago, but business
generally is disappointing. The check to
trade at St. LouU is in part the result of
delays in distribution of merchandise on
account of the lato storm. Eastern ad
vice are that wool is as dull and weak as
ever, with larger stocks of old carried over
than for years and very light demand for
new clip. Makers of cottons for export
are doing relatively the best business.
The total numtier of business failures
throughout the United States this week is
836, compared with 2.C lust week, 838 in
the first week of June, 1895, 207 in the cor
responding week of 1WU, and 233 in the

France Completes a "Grab."
London, June 6. Representatives of
several pave and arbitration societies
gave a reception at Morey lodge yesterday
afternoon to Joseph Pulitzer, proprietor
of the Xew York York World. In addi
tion to the delegates from these societies
the company included Cardinal Yanghn,
Sir Lewis Morris, Hon. Rev. Carr Glynn,
hir James Rcckile, Sir Robert Head Cook
(editor of The Dally News), and Henry
Wotterson, editor of the Louisville Cour
ier Journal. A vellum engrossed address
was presented to Pulitzer and read. The
address alludes to the present pause In tho
negotiations over the Venezuelan ques
tion and hopes to see fresh evidence that
the parties are likely ta arrive at a settle
ment. It dwells at length npon tho de
sire of both nations for permanent arbitra
tion and closes with a renewed tribute to
Pulitzer and The World.
Making a Lion of Oar Joseph.
The reading of the address was much
applauded, aud a number cf speeches fol
lowed. Cardinal -Vaughn, after compli
menting the gnest, said: "Your great ef
forts were widely appreciated. But your
task is far from complete. You, with us,
must desire and must work for a perma
nent tribunal. It has been my happiness
and my privilege to be here and to add my
tribute of respect."
Sir Robert Head Cook, editor of the
Daily News, spoke of the services rendered
to the profession of journalism by Pulit
zer's action. After several simiUr speeches
fulitzer carao forward to reply, and wos
greeted with loud applause. He said : "I
am deeply touched. Unfortunately I am
nn invalid and under a doctor's orders;
therefore I ask permission that my re
sponse may Le read by a young American
friend, my son."
Will Have reace, a la Back Fanshaw.
Joseph Pulitzer then read his father's
reply in part as follows: "I feel that you
come to dq honor to a principle and not to
a person. I know of no purely moral
sentiment tnat has been advanced In Kna-
land since tho abolition of slavery that
appeals so strongly to the mind and heart
as this Idea of substituting civilized meth
ods of peace and reason for barbarism and
needless war. True Americanism means
arbitration. If the great republic across the
LAtlant!c6tands for anything It stands for
the reign or reason as opposed to the reign
or force: for argument, nowcrful discussion
and lawful adjustment, as opposed to
passion ana war. America Is proud of the
luct that arbitration is an American idea.
The war-cloud that recently passed over
America was only made possible by an un-
lortunate refusal of arbitration.
How Is This, Brother Ssllsbaryf
But the chief dnnger was passed when
England recognized tho Amerigan com
mission now sitting at ashinsrton.
That was really the first step towards ar
bitration. When England accepted our
commission, when she made a courteous
and tactful offer of facilities, she insured
a peaceful settlement of the Question.
She did not only recognize it, but she also
submitted her claim and cose to It with
all the evidence in her possession. The
outcome will lie peace peace with a bet
tor understanding, with friendlier good
will, with kindlier feeling.
Who la to Uecule as to the Issne?
"But as to the future danger, let us
trust that there will be either a treaty or a
tribunal making it impossible for the two
nations to go to war about any issue that
does not involve the national indcneiid
enec, the notional honor, or the national
existence. There are certain issues that
are not arbitrable. War against a cruel
despotism or slavery Americans regard as
not only just, but as inevitable- They, be
lieve in tho Freneti revolution. They
naturally sympathize with the uprising of
any people against despotism, whether in
O reeve or Hungary or Poland In the past,
or in Culm today."
The reading of the address was inter
spersed with many cries of "hear," "hear,"
aud was loudly applauded at the conclu

The Gory-Mlnded Letter Borero Wrote to
Madrid, June 6. A jury of honor, com
posed of generals, will lie appointed to ar
range the dispute between Marshal Marti
nez de Campos and General Borero. There
has existed. It is said, for a considerable
time ill-feeling between Campos and Bor
ero, the latter believing that Campos had
been his enemy for years and had recently
exerted himself to get Borero' s election as
senator from Cucnca annulled. He there
fore addr. ssed a letter couched in the fol
lowing, or similar terms So General Cam
pos: "Having heard of the underhand work
your excellency is organizing with the ob
ject of annulling my election as senator
from Cuenoa and taking Into account that
for fourteen years you have been prejudic
ing me in my profession and that in this
world everything must have an end, my
patience is exhausted. I have a pair of
pistols at your disposal. Iam inclined to
do for you what the Cuban insurgents
failed to do.
Thereupon General Campos sent his
seconds to demand retraction or satisfac
tion. A meeting resulted at Villa Olea.
The minister of war appeared on the scene
and failing to get their word of honor
from the principals that they wonld not
fight placed both of them nnder arrest.
The matter remains thus at present.
It appears that the captain general of
Madrid went to the grounds of the Mar
quis of Cabrinana, which was the rendez
vous of the disputants, and prevent the
duel. The marquis tried to stop the can
tain general from entering his grounds,
bat the latter asserted his military au
thority, entered and placed thecombatents
nnder arrest. It is believed that the duel
will yet occur on tbe earliest oossible oc-i
cassioa. General Borero has many par
tisans, especially among the younger of
ficers of the army. -Makes
the Madagascar rnb" Caamleta.
. Paris, June 6. The committee of the
chamber of deputies has unanimously ap
proved the bill making Madagascar a
French colony. Previous to so doing thi
committee was addressed by II. Hanotauz,
the minister for foreign affairs, who stated
that the United States govern dfcnt in a
firm and clear dispatch had insisted upon
the necessity of a categorical declaration
regarding the annexation. Hanotaux
added that the government of Great Brit
ain had also urged that the treaties be
tween aiacogascar and foreign powers ex
isted until the annexation of that Island
was proclaimed by France. .The French
government, therefore, was obliged to ask
the chamber to approve the annexation of
the island of Madagascar to France In or
