American wool growers see little in
the situation to encourage them, but
tt is certain that our doalors do not in-
tend to give up the market to foreign
countries. Two new and important
methods of cleansing wool have beon
devised in New England, one by the
use of naphtha and the other by
hydra-carbon solvent which saves the
valuable grease and potash of the
liber for other purposes. These
methods are said to improve the wool,
leaving it whiter and softer, and in
better condition for dyeing.
Accoutring to tho figures publishod
by the Boston Commercial Bulletin,
the insurance companies of this coun-
try enjoyed in 1894 an unexampled
year, so far as small losses aro con-
cerned. Their aggregate losses
amounted to but $127,000,000, as
compared with $156,OOD.OOO in 1893,
$183,000,000 in 1892, and *138,000,000
in 1891. Then, too, the incomes of
many of the companies wore ma-
terially swellod by higher rates of
premiums, while many, of course, felt
the stringency of the times in the
refusal of many old customers to in-
sure at all, preferring to carry tho
rial* of loss by (ire themselves.
City or Mkxico, Jan. 28. — President
Diaz and l-'oreign Minister Marsical
had a long conference over the Guat-
emalan matter last ni^ht The reply
of Guatemala to the deumiul of Mex-
ico was read and considered in many
of its bearings. Another conference
with the full cabinet will probably be
held Monday.
Later President Diaz dictated the
following: "The government appre-
ciates this randy manifestation, it
being one of the results of tb<e vehe-
ment and inexact phases in which the
press has presented the question of
the day. 1 comply with a duty in
stating that although it is true that
the government is sustaining a
serious and delicate controversy
of a diplomatic na'ure, which,
if not handled with correct, logical
anil honorable men, may conduce to a
war, and, although it is also true that
we are not yet on the verge of war,
because honor, good faith and logic
constitute the program of the gov-
ernment, and because it has no right
to attribute any other course to its
adversary, the government believes
and has practically demonstrated
that belief for several years, that the
greatest blessing we can offer
.to our country is the pres-
ent period of reconstruction
and happy and visible development
in peace, and declares that it will
only allow it to be interrupted when
an unjust and pertinacious aggressor
insists upon infringing upon its well
established rights and assailing its
national honor and decorum. In such
an event, which I hope will not be
realized, tho government will con-
front tho situation with true faith
and energy, inspired by its duty
and its rig-lit. Tho goverpincnt
accents, holds in esteem and will
use with economy what you so patri-
otically offer. We soldiers of the
generation now passing away feel our
blood tingle when we think that we
may be able to baptize in a war every
way just on our part the generation
coming on, in whose hands wo are
going to leave our country and its
fate."
The bind involved in disputo is
covered for the most part with dense
forests of precious woods. Mexican
choppers from the North and Guate-
malan choppers from the South have
clashed in the heart of the forest that
fringes the banks of the rivers Usu-
macinto and La Cantum and their
tributaries and this has precipi-
tated the trouble. The contro-
versy rests on the question
whether the La Cantum, or one of tho
forks of the Usumacinto constitutes
the boundary between the Mexican
6tnte of Chiapas and Guatemala. The
old traditional boundary was the La
Cuntun, but according to the treaty
of 1S8- the boundary was pushed to
tho eastward. The Guatemalans do
not now accept the Usumacinto as the
boundary.

Efforts of the United SifSiUi to
About a Reconciliation.
City of Mexico, .Tan. 2 3.- TlVe
United States lias undertaken Wplay
the part of peacemaker between
Mexico and Guatemala to prevent
war if possible. A M4gram lias been
received here fre# Secretary Gresham
expressing the hope that Guatemala
and Mexico would agree between
themselves upon some method of
settling the dispute over the bound-
ary, but that if this should not be
possible the United States trusted the
two countries would agree to submit
their differences to the arbitration of
some friendly nation. This communi-
cation from a nation with which
Mexico enjoys such intimate and
friendly relations has caused a pro-
found impression upon the govern-
ment and undoubtedly accounts in
part, at least, for the decision of the
minister of foreign affairs to with-
hold for five or six days, at
least, the ultimatum which it was
about to dispatch in much less time
in answer to a note from Guatemala
received. It is learned that the pres-
ident of the United States made such
appeal as would be received in good
spirit before sending it by first com-
municating in an unofficial manner
with Minister Romero at Washington.

■Washington', Jan. 28. — Minister
Thurston said to-day of the state-
ment that the Hawaiian government
was selling bonds in this country at
twenty-five cents on the dollar, for
the purpose of influencing a feeling
in favor of annexation: "There is no
more possibility of such a thing being
done by the Hawaiian government
than by the I'niteil States govern-
ment Hy law the Hawaiian govern-
ment can borrow money for two pur-
poses only—first, to pay postal savings
bank depositors in case the treasury
is unable to meet the demand; second,
for the purpose of constructing certain
public improvements,such as wharves,
roads, bridges, harbors and public
buildings, which, together with the
amounts to be spent for each, aro
specified in the several acts authoriz-
ing the loans. So far from being
troubled concerning financial mat-
ters, the provincial government was
and the republic now is stronger in
that department than in any other.
The continuous balance in the treas-
ury has ranged from 8200,000 to 8400,-
000. Not only lias the government
not beon obliged to borrow money for
its current expenses, but it had such
a large surplus on hand from current
receipts that it advanced from the
current receipts in the treasury to the
loan fund account the sum of $82,093,
which was expended on the specified
public works, and also met a run of
over 8.100,000 on the postal savings
bank."
STATE HANGINGS FAVORED.
The Missouri Itouso 1'assos a Rill for
Penitentiary Capital runUtiment.
Jepeerson Cur, Mo., Jan. 28.—The
house convened this morning without
a quorum. Petitions were presented
from Kansas City and Jefferson coun-
ty asking the enactment of an anti-
cigarette law.
The committee on criminal juris-
prudence presented a substitute for
the bill regarding the hanging of
condemned criminals, which was
adopted by the house. It requires all
persons convicted of capital offenses
to be transferred to the penitentiary
and in the course of law hanged
within the prison walls. The act ap-
propliates 81,000 for the erection of a
suitable building in the penitentiary
for the purpose.
Among the bills introduced were
the following: By Middleton of
Wright to compel the attendance in
public schools for at least four months
of each year of children between the
flares of (i and 10 years, and requiring
tho county court to furnish free
school books to children whose par-
ents are too poor to purchase them;
by ICyler of St. Louis requiring the
police commissioners in St. Louis and
Kansas City to establish rules under
which policemen will not be on duty
over eight hours each day.

Governor Morrill will supplement
this movement by ordering the war-
den to increase the output of peniten-
tiary coal for the benefit of the suf-

ing work by passing the altered

Washington, Jan. 28.—'The bill
pledging the faith of the United
States to do the construction of the
Nicaragua canal passed the senate
last night by the decisive vote of 31
yeas to 21 nays. It was the termina-
tion of a debate which has lasted
£!ncc the present session of congress
began, it was, moreover, tho first
realization in either branch of con-
gress of tho vast project r.o long and
vigorously urged for a canal joining
the Atlantic and Pacific with the
United States government standing
sponsor for the execution of the work.
The bill in brief directs the issue of
870,000,000 of Nicaragua canal bonds.
Each of these is to bear the following
guarantee: "The United States of
America guarantees to the lawful
holder of this bond the payment by
the Maritime Canal company of Nica-
ragua, of the principal of said bonds
and the interest accruing thereon,
and as it accrues."
An additional $30,000,000of bonds is
to be issued without the United
States' guarantee. The total $100,-
000,000 thus issued is to be used in
constructing the interoceanic canal.
'1 he secretary of the treasury is to
have general supervision of the pro-
ject. A board of fifteen directors is
to have immediate charge of the
work. Of this board the president is
to designate ten members, no more
than two from any one state. The
United States is to receive 870,000,000
of canal company stock in return for
guaranteeing the bonds, and is to
hold a mortgage lien on all the prop-
erty of the canal company.
Houie Proceedings.
The sundry civil bill passed the
house in tho shortest time, so far as
known, on record. It was under con-
sideration but three days. As passed
the bill carried S38,1:35,721. Two
bropositions, offered respectively by
Mr. Sayers and Mr, Coombs, the for-
mer's to give the secretary of the
treasury power to issue United States
ponds of such dimensions as he should
See fit instead of as now to issue
them of the same denomination,
and the latter's to retire and
eaucel the gold certificates and
make them non-receivable for cus-
toms dues after July 1 next, furn-
ished the principle theme of discus-
sion. Mr, Sayres' proposition was de-
feated—7t to 87, while that of Mr.
Coombs was carried without division.
Another amendment offered by Mr.
Settle of North Carolina, to strike out
the appropriation of 850,000 to pay for
information regarding moonshine dis-
tillers, was lost. An appropriation of
$40,000 for a lightship to be stationed
off the straits of Fuca, Wash., was
adopted.
NEEDS OF THK NAVY.
Naval Kill liepr,rtei( f.'srrlua a Total of
1,807,022.
Washington, T). C., Jan. 28.—The
report on the naval appropriation
shows that the bill carries a total of
$31,807,022, an increase over the esti-
mates, which were $30,92.*>,096. The
estimates for the increase of the navy
were $13,250,393. while the appropria-
tion is $13,777,521. Of this increase
over estimates $5,000,000 is for armor
and armaments and $463,2o0 for con-
struction and steam engineering.
The most important feature of the
report is the discussion of the neces-
sity for the three new battleships ano
twelve torpedo boats provided for.
Ilawuilan Cable Almost Certain.
San Francisco, Jan. 28. — Hugh
Craig, manager of the New Zealand
insurance company, says the cable
between Vancouver, 11. C.. and New
Zealand via Honolulu will certainly
be laid, lie states that he has offers
from would-be bidders who will also
lav a cable between Honolulu and
Monterey, Cal., if an American con-
cession can be secured.
Heavy Withdrawal of Gold.
Washington, D. C., Jan. 28.—Yes-
terday's withdrawal of gold from the
sub-treasury at New York aggregated
$0,700,000 (#5,200,000 coin and $1,500,-
000 bars) and from Boston $250,000,
making a total of $(5,950,000, which is
believed to be the largest amount, of
gold ever withdrawn in a single day.
This leaves the reserve $56,782,858.
Holier Measures in Nebraska.
IjlNCOl.n, Neb., Jan. 28.—Tho relief
measure appropriating $50,000 for Ne-
braska's destitute became a law yes-
terday. It is believed that with this
and the contributions from other
sources received and pledged are
amply sufficient at least until the
seed question must be solved.
