has dropped the name of the explorer
from the roll of membership. Follow

said yesterday that the story was un

Alaska I saw Edward Barrill at Sew

Washington, Jan. 6. Not seeing the
necessity of demanding the immediate
arrest and punishment of Zelaya, the
house foreign affairs committee today
laid aside the various measures intro
duced providing for such action.
See Pronpeet of Peace.
Managua, Jan. 6. Managua is jubil
ant over the prpspects of early peace.
President Madriz made public last ev
ening a telegram which he had receiv
ed from General Fornos Diaz, one of
he leaders in General Estrada's in
surgent army, saying that he was leav
ing Rama for Managua to discuss the
situation with the president.
General Diaz's telegram was as fol
lows: "Be assured of our patriotism and
of General Estrada's honorable charac
ter. I am leaving for Managua to set
tle the country's situation with you di
rect." President Madriz also gave out a
telegram, which he has received from
General Estrada, In which Generals
Gonzales. Castrillo, Gomez and other
prisoners are reported well.
Washington, Jan. C. While there has
been no indication on the part of the
T'nited States government as to its
feeling towards the administration of
President Madriz in Nicaragua, it is
known that considerable dissatisfaction
is felt with the new regime.
Certain acts of Madriz, such as the
appointment of General Toledo as
commander in chief of a division of
the army, and the appointment of a
Russian nihilist, named Loetz, said to
be a notorious adventurer, as com
mandant of the port of Corinto, have"
led the t'nited States to believe that
nothing in the way of genuine reform
or important changes in the interest of
the citizens of Nicaragua are to be
hoped for through Madriz.
