Information to thle effect was received from an authoritative aourca In Washington todav. The above intelligence causea consider able surprise in diplomatic clrclee, for but few weeks ago it waa announced that Mr. Concha, the Colombian minister, and. Mr. Corea, the Ntcaraguan minister, bad estab lished an entente cordials between their respective governments; that bygones were to be regarded as bygones, and that the time was ripe for a satisfactory under standing by the two governments. It ia now learned that the initial move toward the establishment of an amicable understanding between Nicaragua and Co lombia waa made by Mr. Corea, who alao proposed to Mr. Concha an adjustment of the difficulties which have so long been pending over Colombia'! claim to the own ership ot a strip of what ia claimed by Nicaragua to be part of ita coast line.

Meanwhile, it la understood, the entente eordlale has only a nominal existence. It la not anticipated that the affair will lead to an actual war with Nicaragua, but, nevertheless, Colombia la making prepara tions to back up Ita repreaentations with a reinforced army and navy.

The Pub lic alliance of thle city, which haa been endeavoring to bring about a settlement of the ooal strike in the interest of the buelnesa man of the anthracite region, haa aent the following appeal to President ' Roosevelt: To the President of tha TTnlteit S.t.- Since the Inception of the barbarous and enseless struggle in the anthracite con I region, we. the non-combatants who atand upon neutral ground, have suffered the In evitable fate of such unfortunates. The iiae or Dai tie etbs and flows over and . about us. We have endured patiently. W'e have petitioned humbly. We had hoped for much upon J. P. Morgan's return. But now, after a struggle of four months dura tion, a period of Buffering and progressive business paralysis, when it seemed to us that the time wa propitious for a settle ment of some kind. It riot as a matter of concession to 'public opinion, yet as a plain, business proposition, Mr. Morgan has met with his henchmen and the edict haa gone forth "There will be no settle ment, no arbitration, no conciliation, no mediation, no concession. The fight must go on." Mr. Morgan haa placed a ban upon u Which mean universal ruin, destitution, riot and bloodshed. Is J. P. Morgan greater than the people? Is he mightier than tbe government? Will he be permitted to re tain thla menacing power? It Is time that the people should speak. It Is time -that their voice should be heard. Repre senting the interest and sentiments of ' nine-tenths of our people, w appeal to you to use your influence to atay the jug gernaut which crushes us. Encouraged by your recent utterances, relying upon your judgment and patriotism, confident of your moral courage, we appeal from the king of truats to the president of th people.
