Washington, Feb. 21. The published statement that Qrover Cleveland had de termined not to become the Democratic candidate for the Presidency in 1892, has led to considerable talk and discussion here. The report, Mr. Cleveland's friends and admirers say, did not come from sources particularly friendly to the ex President., ahd they are loth to credit it. On the other hand, the anti-Cleveland men seize upon the story eagerly.

I have not said anything in public or private to lead any one to believe that I am anxious to ob tain a renoinination to the Presidency. 'Mv ideas on that subicct are quite well understood by all with whom I have conversed and who are at all entitled to be called my friends. 'If it be true that there has been a consultation of my Democratic friends at which conference my name was men tioned, I know nothing about it. '1 may say that 1 have such conlldenco in'the unselfish Democracy of my friends that whatever they determine on I am sure will be for the good of the party. I have not expressed to them any settled determination touching my relations to the next campaign, and there has there fore been no resson tor them to attempt to have me change such a determiua tion."

The city that the dead General loved so well made his obsequies an event memorable in the annals of the nation and a funeral pageant that was worthy the fame of the .last great triumvirate of American generals. Prominent among those in the proces sion were Hoyt Sherman, jr., of Omaha, a nephew of the deceased, Col. W. F. Cody (Buffalo Bill), who served under General Sherman as a scout on the plains a quarter ot a century ago, Col. Forsythe of Fort Leavenworth, Hon. Amos Town soud from Ohio and Governor A. J.

The Pope declared himself in a better position than any one else to judge as to the best course, and since he accepted the republic he saw no reason that any Catholic, even a bishop, should reject it. On two points, he said, no misconcep tion was possible: rirst, that the gov ernment must be acknowledged, and second, that the Church must hold aloof from political parties. Great Relief for France. Lonijon, Feb. 21. The French govern ment is immensely relieved by the de parture from Paris of the Empress Fred erick and her daughter, the Princess Marguerite.

The Empire, the leading Conservative organ, asserts that it has learned, upon nndoubted au thority, that correspondence has been carried on between the leaders ot the Liberal party and "their allies or mas ters" at Washington, with the result that the long talked of Hitt resolution or something in the same line will be passed by the House of Representatives one week hence in order.to give an air of veracity to tbe Canadian Liberal claim that the United States Congress and peo ple are in favor of bringing about unre stricted reciprocity. 'This movement." the paper adds. "will not be sprung until a week before the election, and such a scheme bears its own foolishness and futility upon its face. Ihe United States Congress now sitting is a moribund body. Motions passed by it now no more represent pub lic sentiment than the decrees of the Shah of Persia. Its life expires in a few days. 'The Republican party which control it were hopelessly wiped out at the polls in November last, and the immense Democratic majority which will succeed them will feel themselves in no way bound by the action of their prede cessors. No resolutions passed by such a Congress are worth the paper they are printed on." Prof. Goldwln Smith Retaliates. Toronto, Feb. 21. Goldwin Smith, replying to an article in the Empire seeking to implicate him in the farrer affair, flatly denies all tho allegations, declaring on his honor that he never saw or heard of Farrer's pamphlet, and that he had nothing whatever to do with its composition. He charges the Empire with fabrica tion in its statement respecting his in struction to the printer, lie denounces the whole article, so far as he is con cerned, as a tissue of falsehoods, dis graceful alike to the editor of the Em pire, and to his patron and Supporter, Sir John Macdonald.
