Kuch Depends on the Interpretation JPnt Upon Woodford's Jfote Which Would Be Considered an Ultimatum if Emanating from a European Power, the Londo Time* Says—Belief in Spain That W Want Cuba Ourselves, London, Oct.. 26.—The Madrid corro- /pondent of The Standard telegraphing yesterday saya: "United States Mlrla- ter Woodford received Spain's reply today. It is said to be a document of over thirty pages." London, Oct. 26.—The Times, after remarking editorially this mornlngr that "The real danger is that America will take some step to precipitate a crisis," says: "General Woodford's note, like other papers emanating- from Washlng- on, cannot be construed by the ordinary rules proper to diplomatic correspondence. This is fortunate, inasmuch as it contains expressions which if they came r rom a European chancellerie must be nterpreted as menacing war. But it Is unfortunate because it makes the meaning of the note ambiguous, that no clear intimation is given of the conesquences of a refusal to acquiesce in the American demands. The note is extremely diffuse and abounds In expressions of friendship and good will toward Spain';' but while it apologizes for the earnest and positive nature of th^ language used on the ground that it Is Desirable to prevent misunderstandings between two friendly -nations that language, in fact, lacks the precision which is usually expected in documents of this kind. Gives the PJth of Woodford 1 * >"ote. "There Is the distinct statement that American interesrs are suffering 1 , and that an attitude of neutrality cannot be prolonged indefinitely. There is mention of the concurrent resolution of the two houses of congress last year, of the. recent resolution of the senate, and of agitation In the United States. There is an assurance that public opinion now demands the recognition of the insurgents as hellig-erenls. In these circumstances it is suggested that the Spanish government should consider whether it is not time to terminate the war by proposals consistent with its dignity and with the Interests of Cuba. To this end the government at Washington makes tender of its good offices and calls upon the Spanish government within the present month to formulate definite proposals by which that tende: may bt rendered effective, or to give satisfactory assurances that the war will be brought to a speedy end. Prefers War to Surrender to Menace. "Spain appears to prefer to lose Cuba In a war she foresees will be disastrous to her, rather than to surrender what she regards as just and right in deference to menace. It is a foolish choice, but the choice of a nation. On the other hand, if President McKJnley and his advisers are really animated by friendly sentiments they profess they may fairly consent to the modest demand of the Sagasta cabinet for a. reasonable period to settle the thorny problem haned down by their predecessors. If this demand is refused, all Spaniards will arrive at the conclusion that the ugly rumors in circulation as to the financial influences working behind the jingo agitation are ture, and that President McKInley's plausible words are merely intended to cover a projected abuse of superior physical strength." ' SITUATION' AT MADRID DESCRIBED. era! WoodfSrd o'btalning any satisfactory arrangement are not bright. Fui- thermore it would be a dangerous en or to imagine that the Spaniards are play- Ing a game of bluff. They know th;-y would be beaten, but CastiHian pride is willing to accept the consequences. This ir. the burden of official talk here, with this addition: 'We never signed the declaration of Paris against privateer- ing, and we ought to be able to destroy American commerce all over the world. Let the Americans <io their worst. W« »re read;-' to accept the consequences.' " How It Is Viewed from Two Points : of Observation and by Different Observer*. ONLY NINETEEN WERE KILLED. IttevLsed Li»t of the Lost by the Terrible Xew Vork Central Disaster. Garrisons, N. Y., Oct. 26.—The complete list of the killed in the New York Central and Hudson River railroad wreck, a list which the railroad officials believe includes all of those who could possibly have been lost, is as follows: Engineer John C. Foyle, of East Albany, body still in the river; Fireman John C. Tompkina, of East Albany, body still in the river; Thomas Ryley, of St. Louis; W. H. G. Myers, of Tremont, .N. Y.; A. G. McKay, Harlem, body still in the river; E. A. ireen. of Chicago; William Schencken- becker, of Newark, N. J.; Guiseppe Ta- ;uana, New York; Mrs. Robt, Landsman, Jtioa, N. Y.; unknown woman; Chin -,ee Song, San Francisco; Chin Fong 3op, brother of Chin L«e Song; Hoo Wuh, of New York; Lee Tong- Sing, of ew York; unknown Chinaman; Wong 1m, residence unknown; two unknown Chinamen. The number is nineteen, as-sent here- ofore, and there is little doubt that this s the total list of the killed. The bodies if- the engineer, fireman and Van Eten's secretary are yet in the river, with small hope of their immediate recovery. The cause of the accident will be thoroughly investigated, but at present la involved in doubt, except that something gave way under the road, which was supposed to rest on solid rock. FUNERAL OF DR.

Prominent men in educational work from all over the state and nation sent messages of respect arid condolence, which form a magnificent eulogy of Dr. Baternan's completed life work. WILL OF GEORGE M. PULLMAN. Bat Disagreement ai to the Imminence and Extent Thereof—Views of Priest* and Others in to the Extent of tho Crop Failure Indicate Distress in the Near Future —Opinion of a Government Official— Jfothing- like That of '48. Dublin, Oct. 26.—There axe two sides to the question of the famine in Ireland, One side is that of the government, which alleges that the famine is exploited by politicians as an argument against the administration of Irish, affairs. The other side—held by many o fthe crergy, politicians and people—is that it is certain that there will be great distress throughout large sections of the country. A meeting of Roman Catholic prelates .was held at Maynooth last week and those present adopted resolutions that the archbishops and bishops of Ireland deem it their duty to submit to the government a statement of their conviction, formed on the personal knowledge of seven members of that body, that the failure',of the potato and cereal crops in many districts, particularly on the southern a.rX western coasts, must lead to great distress and, unless speedy- measures of relief are adopted, to disastrous consequences. , Government Urged to Act Promptly. From delegates who were present at the convention of the Independents at Dublin last week details of the situation were learned.. It is part^-larly. bad in the middle and West Cork diS)O"t, south Ireland, from Macroon to the hoi^rs of Kerry, including- two congested distn<-*-.. Meetings are being held, the parish priests presiding, to urge the government to start relief works before the people reach the point of actual suffering. The district of Bantry, where the greatest suffering occurred in 1S47 and 1879, is as bad as the Cork district. The potatoes are practically exhausted already. In mid-Cork and along the southern coast there Is not more than a quarter of the usual crop. >"othlnjf to Eat by New Years. It is said that a very small percentage of the farmers In these districts have saved their potatoes, and those saved are reported to be so badly diseased that when e:iten they produce "Irish cholera." It is feared that the supply of food will be exhausted before the new year. The other crops are very bad. The laborers are worse off than the farmers, because now that the crops are harvested they huve no expectation of work until the spring. The government officials insist upon keeping themselves fully informed regarding the conditions prevailing, and will be able, apparently, to cope with the distress; but they say they are unable to announce at this time what districts or how many people will be affected.

Washington, Oct. 26.—Late yesterday afternoon Attorney Genera! AlcKenna gave otBclal confirmation to the WaJl street bulletins about a postponement of the Union Pacific sale until Dev. 15. He said that Governor Hoadley, government counsel in the Union Pacific case, had been authorized several days ago to make application for the postopne- ment and that the instructions would b« to make application for the postpo-ne- nsert w»uld be applied for the attorney general said: "To give anybody and everybody a chance'for any preparation that may be needed-to bid for the property." A telegram from New York gives an announcement by the Union Pacific reorganization committee to the effect that the interest of the security-holders and of the syndicate furnishing the funds to finance the reorganization demand reorganization without any further delay. In 'his situation the committee contemplated so as to gain prompt possession of the Union Pacific line, opposing any adjournment of the sale of the main line and to bid it in, if need be, for the full amount of the government's claim, the additional sum involved in this being $8.000,000.

Spaniards Believe the United States' Object Is Cuba's Acquisition. The Times editorial is based upon letters from Madrid describing the situation, the second of which appears today dated Oct. 18. The writer, prefacing his remarks by saying that "Circumstances and not. American pressure produced change of ministry," discusses the note in practically the same terms as are used in the editorial. He comments on the fact that while amiably expressed the nete hints its intentions in a manner having a "disagreeable resemblance to the consecrated phrase of diplomacy •vis-er aux moyens,' which in a similar European document would have the character of an ultimatum. * * * If the truth must be told, GeneralWood- ford's amicable assurances are regarded by Spaniards as little beyond polite phrases signifying nothing, and intended to cover unjustifiable aggressive designs. "The fact that the insurrection was originally hatched in America and is supported from there is considered proof that the American? mean io possess Cuba, and the tender of their good offices is regarded as a step in that direction- In support of this view the American correspondents of the Madrid papers assert that an American syrdi- cate with enormous resources and with influential hacking at Washington >s preparing to buy up the land, railways, jTjjrar and tobacco factories and industrial undertakings, and is ever negotiating with the rebel leaders with a view to,running the new autonomist government, possibly under the nominal sovereignty of Spain, but in any case under the real protection of the United States. "I understand that the Spanish gcv- ernment possesses a deal of trustworthy information on this subject. There is no doubt that these projects exist, and if the authorities at Washington sympathize with them—as is suspected— they will not be much inclined to -wait for the result of the new policy in Cuba, but wiu persist in intervention on the ground, according to the Woodford noi«, not of Weyler's cruelties, but of injuries to Ameriacn interests, "On Ihe \yhclfi. the prosB«ct« at <Seo AH That Is Really Known of It Outside th Family Is Given Below. Chicago, Oct. 26.— The last will and testament of George M. Pullman wil be filed in probate court tomorrow morning. Until that time no part of its contents will be made known to the public. Robert T. Lincoln and Norman B Ream, joint executors, and the nearest relatives of the millionaire, who were present when the document was reac at the family residence are the only ones who have any knowledge of the wording of the will beyond a few primary facts given out by Lincoln last night. Lincoln said: "Pullman's will is very liberal, indeed. It contains many large bequests to public and charitable Institutions. It will be filed in the probate court at the earliest possible moment and then it will be published for the first time in its entirety. Executors will be obliged tofurnish heavy bonds, and there are many similar routine matters tc be attended to, all of which requires time. We expect to have everything ready to go to court early Wednesday." Shields Has Grown Weary- Princeton, N. J., Oct. 26.— Professor Charles W. Shields, of Princeton university, authorizes the statement that in consequence of "unjust, unconstitutional and defamatory action." of certain presbyteries and synods, involving his good name, he decides for his own personal protection to separate himself from the Presbyterian church in a constitutional manner with the least possible delay. This refers to the granting of a liquor license to the Princeton Inn, Professor Shields' being one of the signers of the petition for the granting of the license. That Package Is a Dead Chicago, Oct. 26.—The $14,000 package sent by registered mail to the State Savings bank at Butte, Mont., by the National Bank of the Republic here,has been given up for lost. The Union Marine Insurance company, of Xew York, in which the package was insured, has notified the bank by telegraph that it will pay the loss. Paying Uncle Sam extra for registry or postal money order does not make the government responsible. Yellow Fever nt Atlanta. Atlanta, Ga.. Oct. 26.—H, H. Comer, * fireman of the Atlanta and West Point railway, who came to this city as a refugee from Montgomery about five days ago and who is cow ill witb yellow fever In this city, is somewhat better, and the physicians who are attending- Mm think that the chances of his recovery are ex- celleat. Elgti Tide Doe* New York, Oct. 26.—The Long Island coast for a distance of sbc miles Between Far Rockaway and Rockaway beach, was more or less da.maged by the tide yesterday, which was the highest In some years. Talk of a Repetition of the Suffering of 1848 Declared "Great Kubbish." J. B. Dougherty, assistant under-secretary of state for Ireland, discussing the situation, said there would undoubtedly be suffering, but that the predictions of a famine similar to that of the year 1848 were the "greatest rubbish." He added: "There are several counties on the West Coast of Ireland, where the people have had an exceedingly hard time to attain self-support under the best conditions, and it requires but a small push to send them over the line, so that with a small falling oft of the crops they will be obliged to accept aid. This will be the case in carts of the West Coast. Two circumstances, however, will prevent a recurrence of famine in Ireland under any circumstances—namely, the increase of railroad facilities since 1848 arid the fact that the people no longer depend entirely upon the potato crop. \ "The truth is that part of Ireland is not sufficiently productive to support Its people and it is question whether manufactures should not be taken to them or whether they should not be taken to the manufacturers of England, the United States or elsewhere; though I am not prepared to say which. If electricity was largely applied to manufacturing in Ireland that country would have a great future as a manufacturing center; but if Ireland ii obliged to import coal it will be unable to compete with England and other countries. The government is keeping' informed on the situation and is fully able to handle any suffering which may arise." In conclusion Dougherty left it to be inferred that relief work would be naugurated, although he did not say so, Hineman Happens To Be Alive. Springfield, Illg,; Oct. 26.—Fred Mine- man, a farmer of this vicinity, who was supposed to have been murdered and his )ody thrown into Clear lake, has been bund alive and well at Black Jack, Mo., near St. Louis. Last Saturday he was seen at that place by A. B. Van Sycle. a traveling man of thj= o:.y. who knows lim well. Hineman gave Van Sycle a etter to Ms brother, who lives here, mating that he left home on account of lelng heavily in debt. Another "Original Package" Owe.

New Yoik, Oct; 26.—Justice Beach, in the supreme court yesterday, handed down a decision enjoining the United Portable Hoisting Engineers' union and its walking delegate, Peter Gibbons, from interfering with Benjamin P.Davis, a non-union man; and also ordering the •defendant union to pay Davis 1500 damages for having kept him from working- from June. 1895, to August, 1896. Davis told how Gibbons had called on a large number of employers and stated that he would order a strike on the buildings, they were erecting unless they discharged him. Justice Beach says that while conspiring between Gibbons and the union was not proved, suf- ficent evidence had been given to justify: an injunction preventing further illegal proceedings on the part of the defendants. Monon Went J?ack on Thfa Road. Indianapolis, Oct. 26.—A meeting- of the stockholders of the Fort Wayne, Terre Haute and Southwestern was held here yesterday. The meeting was called by Porter Skinner, of Rock Island, Ills.. who owns nineteen-twentieths of the 2,100 shares of stock. The directors chosgn were Charles M. Bradley, Hock Island. Ills.; J. G.

The council is to consider the cotn- pia,fnt of Dr. C. O.

Beriin, Oct. 26.—The refusal of the czar and czarina to receive the grand duke and grand duchess of Baden at Darmstadt, after the latter had intimated to their Russian majeaties a desire to visit them, is vigorously criti- oised by the German press.
