Nicaragua's New Government Said to Ko Anll-AmiTlcan. Nr.\v Youic , Juno 11. TheWorld's City of Mexico special says : The Mexican Finan cier says : "Tho downfall of the Sncaza government in Nicaragua appears to have behind it an intriiruo of foreign interests hostile to the continuance of American con trol in the Nicaragua ! ! hhip canal , an enter prise purely American in its Inception and sustained entirely by American capital. When the canal was begun , little attention was paid to it , but now that it is likely to be successful European governments wish to have a voice in its control. Hut before they secure n share in that control or a prc- do.Tjinanco therein they will have to light for it , for the United States government cannot afford to permit Europe to have anv manage ment In a waterway designed primarily for the use of the nations of this hemisphere , and it is not for the Interest of Mexico that the revolutionists in Nicaragua should in trigue against n continental policy in Nica ragua. All nations may use the canal when it is completed , but that is a very different matter from allowing European governments to place their agents in the Board of Admin istration of the canal. "The democratic party now in power in the United States government is committed by Its platform of principles to giving gov ernment aid to the canal for the purpose of national defense and of the promotion of commerce ) between tlio states. Minister Guzman , who represented the late govern incnt of President Sacaza at Washington , favors an America' ! protectorate in Nicar agua , but it seems to us that the moral in fluence of the United States in Nicaragua is sulUcicnt to mulntaln the stntu quo. Americans should not mix themselves' iip in the stormy politics of Central -America , but they will not permit the successful revolu tionists in Nicaragua to adopt n policy hos- | tlk > , not only to American , but Mexican in tercets.

Everybody is feeling confident , and the outlook U brighter than It has been In many days , as the tire has awakened all the old time energy in the wide-awake men of this city. it is of interest to note that the deposits of nil the banks yesterday were greater by con- sMerablo than the amounts drawn out. This bliovvs how much conllilcnco the people have hero in the banks nnd the business future of Fargo. No inconvenience was caused by the burning of these banks , as only ono day in tervened without business b'jlng dona , and this delay was taken simply to allow the vaults to cool off hufllclcnt to have their con tents safe for removal.

The remains of the dead victims of the horrible wreck of Ford's theater Friday have nearly been disposed of. Washington was today n city of funerals , and all day long mourners have gone about the streets. ISvcryono knew what the sad procession meant nnd the sympathy of all was extended , albeit , unexpressed in many cases to the sorrowing , stricken ones. Inquiry confirms the statement that none of the victims wcro men of property , nnd lived on their salaries , which x furnished means of livelihood , but left littlc for n day like this. Most of them were married nnd some had largo families , who are now left , if not entirely dependent on friends nnd relatives , at least lacking in funds lor imme diate use.

Nearly nil of these men wcro members of various military or civic organizations , and their funerals and escorted their remains to the railway station. J. B.

The funeral of William Schriobcr will bo belli at College Park , Md. , tomorrow morn ing , and his remains interred nt Baltimore. The remains of J. H. McFull will be taken to Lynchburg , Vn. , for burial. Much of the talk upon the disaster is now of relief measures , and the circulators of subscription papers in tlio departments , and the Wnshlnston newspapers , in their efforts to gather funds for the relief of the victims and their families are meeting with success to a degree that docs credit ID the bcnovo lence of the citizens. The government class , as a class , are not well to do , and the ex penses of living hereabout absorb most of their salaries , but few indeed were too poor to contribute a sum that appeared to bo gen erous , in view of the relief afforded the wid ows and orphans. Most notable is the growth of the feeling of resentment on the purt of the public against the persons responsible for the wreck. In advance of the verdict of the coroner's Jury and findings of the court of Inquiry , ordered by the War department , there is no general agreement upon this point , but the public nro rather indiscrimin ately condemning everybody who had any thing to do with the control of the wrecked building from congress down to the very laborers who wcro digging in the cellar when the crash came.

"They wanted me , " said Mr. Doyle , ' 'to take the job of undermining the old structure , for the purpose of putting in an electric plant. 1 would not touch the job. I hnvo several reasons for this refusal. The first was , that it was u risky ami dangerous utidortaking ; secondly , they did not have any plans or gpccitlcaiions for the work ; thirdly , there was no civil engineer or ex port to supervise the operations and the contractor was supposed to go ahead at random or In n haphazard manner' fourthly , they were niggardly about the amount they wanted to pay for the work , und evidently desired It done in a cheap-John fashion. For these very good reasons I kept my bunds off the work , and in the light of recent events , I am glad 1 did , for today perhaps I would feel like an assassin , "I examined the pit today Into which the victims wcro precipitated In the crash on Friday. I 'found that no support had been placed undcrnealh the center arch , where the excavation was made and the street. Tlio arch should have been run from the basement nnd then floor to floor In the front part of the building. The accident was caused by undermining the pillars. The job was n risky ono nnd thrro nro evidences of n careless undermining. " "If the coroner's jury finds n vcrilct In volving criminality it would be my duty to report the matter to the grand jury for in vestigation and action , " said District Attor ney Blrnle. Indictments will probably fol low unless It la trim that the hlutno Is so much distributed as to make such a course Impossible. This might bo the case If It was the belief of the Jury that congress Is the party to bo blamed. "I have taken no action1 In this unfortu nate mutter ns yotj" continued Mr. Blrnie.

"You may bo sura that wo shall follow the case close. Iseothnt the war department is to have an Investigation of its own. The result of this , taken with the findings of thn coroner's inquest , will be of value to a case of criminality being established ngalnst anyone.

All day long talk has been plentiful on the subject of the Borden - den murders , and there can be no denial that It is the general opinion about town that the prosecution thus far has n very weak case. This opinion is bcinir strengthened by rumors current hero to the effect that Lizzie Bor- dcn's counsel will shortly explode a bomb shell into ' .ho camp of the authorities. The hatchet incident , with Its accompany ing denial , is a .source of much comfort to the defense , but while the prisoner's friends are buoyant , the specials of the police authorities nro by no means down cast. Olllcor Mullaleyts strange , unexpected statement about finding the handle is , they say , in Keeping with the general tone of the testimony given by him before in court. Ho has been known several times to take a position In less important cases In defiance of the fact that live or six of the olllcers and witnesses testified positively that he was wrong. Ono of the police authorities thlulcs EO little of the circumstances that ho says he will not advise tlio district attorney to con tradict Mullaley's alleged erroneous state ment. The matter of wrapping up the hatchet testified to in two ways by Medley nnd DCS mend , can bo easily explained , They say both men did wrap up the hatchet , Desmond wrapping it up llrst anil passing itto Medley ley , who afterward opened It in the collar to show another ofllcer. It Is n frequently expressed pressed opinion that the defense lias built : i mine under Medley's testimony und will sol it oil before the case Is dually submitted.

The World i will tomorrow publish nn authorized Interview with his eminence , Cardinal James Gibbons , archbishop ot Baltimore and prelate of the American Catholic church in regard to the proposed closing of the World's fair on Sun day , Cardinal Gibbons Is quoted ns saying : "When the question was llrst brought up , 1 gave it as my opinion thnt It would not bo advisable to close the fair for the cnttro Sunday , 1 favored opening It Sunday afternoons for many good reasons , which to Catholics are very strong and well founded. In the first place wo would not go as fnrns the upholders of the Puritan Sunday , much ns 1 condemn the lax observance of the day In ICuropouu countries. Wo bellovo the Ixird's day to be ) not only a day of rest and religious obscrv- unco , but n day on which Innocent recreation Is allowable. If n visit to the fair comes within the limit , the opening of the fair to provide innocent recreation on Sun day afternoons , cannot bo considered u dese cration of the day. Having performed the religions duties required of them In llio morning , our Catholic people are frco then to spend the day in such recreation ns be comes the Sunday. "Moreover , In view of the fact that many thousands of visitors to the fair must bo of the class who have no respect for the re ligious character of the Sunday , it scenm a matter of common prudence to provide them with a means of spending the day innocently , instead of leaving them to their own inclinations anil the numerous temptations certain to bo placed in their way. Then again , it Is a real hardship to deprive so m.tny thousands of honest working people of their only op portunity to see the fair. These nnd other reasons lead mo to believe that the fair should bo open Sunday afternoon nnd that much moro evil will result from the Sunday closing than from tliu opening.
