Washington, Xov. 27.—Questions "affecting the honor and integrity of the nation" are to be excepted from the treaty of arbitration between the United States and Great Britain. This in a word is the gist of the ilcKinley administration's attitude on this very interesting and important subject. The United States senate, it would appear, is to be the judge of what questions do "affect the honor and integrity of the nation." By their vote members of the senate might declare any subject, from pelagic sealing to immigration restrictions, "a matter touching the nation's honor and integrity." ajid refuse to submit it to the arbitrating tribunal. Any subject might thus remain a subject of dispute or become a cause for \var. Therefore, it is said by certain statesmen who were friendly to the Olney-Pauncefote treaty which was rejected by the senate that the modified affair to be offered at the coming session of congress is to be an emasculated imitation, having not even the weight of a moral obligation, and leaving the whole subject exactly where it is now, Monroe Doctrine Is in the Way. It is admitted by all but the most extreme arbitrationists that there are some questions which cannot be submitted to arbitration without a sacrifice of our dignity and virility as one of the earth's greatest powers. A wanton insult or a bold encroachment on our well- recognized territorial boundaries would threaten our very existence and imperatively demand the reply that only a cannon can make. The Monroe doctrine also is usually regarded as too vital a thing to be endangered by submission to any arbitrative tribunal whose decision would admit of no appeal, and it is especially in the interests of the Monroe doctrine that this vague phrase about honor and integrity is inserted. It is a matter of grave doubt in the minds of many advanced statesmen whether any cast-iron treaty for the final adjustment by arbitration of international disputes can be made, or whether, being made, it would have more than a moral effect: its decisions in any matter of real interest giving way to, an appeal to arms, Cabinet D!-••*• usses the Message. The cabinet meeting called together every member of the president's official family yesterday and lasted fully half an hour lunger than usual. Notwithstanding this it was said that the proceedings were generally of a. routine nature. The president has not finally completed his message to congress. The matter is, however, in such shape that it can be put in form for the printer at a day's notice, but this notice has not yet been given and the cabinet spen most of the time of the session going over once more certain portions of the document. One of the portions was the very first chapter of the message, treating- of the foreign relations of our government. It is the intention of the president to devote much attention in his message to the subject of trade relations and reciprocity, so that there was some talk respecting the positions assumed by the great European sugar producing- countries, that the laying of a countervailing duty on sugar to offset the home paid bounty amounts to unjust discrimination. Have Not Heard from Canada.

"Washington, Xcv .27.—Secretary Bliss has taken prompt action to avert a possible invasion of the "Wichita reservation In Oklahoma by whites with the Idea of forcing upon congress the opening of the country to white settlement. Reports have just reached the department that certain persons are declaring their intention to organize a large party in the state of Kansas or elsewhere to invade the Wichita lands with the ob- jec; stated. If they do they will land in J^:l very promptly. No Hope for Thos^ Austrian*. Washington, Xov. 27.—The Austrian minister yesterday had an interview •with the secretary of the treasury in behalf of the forty-eight Austrian stave cutters recently arrested in the Mississippi and Tennessee Stave company's plant for violation of the alien contract labor law. It is not thought that the representations made were sufficient to change the secretary's determination to direct their deportation. Another Persistent Lie Xniled. "Washington.

The Canadian alternate proposal referred to in the dispatches is believed to be nothing more than a renewal of the original proposal to appoint a joint commission and allow the question of total suspension of sealing to go before it with other matters.

Washington. Xov. 27.—The naval trial board has made a report upon the recent two days' trial of the battleship Iowa E.t sea that thoroughly sustains Commo- dcre Dewey's comment that the ship was as fine a type of a ship of her class as there is in the world. The board says in part: The vessel under all circumstances behaved well, being very steady and roiling and pitching but few degrees. Her high free board forward adds greatly not only to the comfort of the men but to her sea-going efficiency, and the power of firing her guns under all circumstances. Altogether her seagoing qualities appear to be excellent. The board was particularly impressed by the personnel of the Iowa, and at- tributec much of the fine appearance of the ship and her crew to the excellent management of Captain Sampson and. hi* staff of officers. The speed made was 13.45 knots, but this was under natural draught and with a poor Quality of coaL The machinery worked well in every particular. Some attention is called to An unduly large port-hoJe which might prove a danger to the ship by admitting shot and shell, but on the whole the report is as favorable as a»y report OTJ any of our ship*. What a Confederate General Says About the JLate Unpleusantiicbs. St. Louis, Xov. 27.—General. Vincent Marmaduke. of Sweet Springs, Mo., who was recently appointed by the ex-Confederate veterans of Missouri as chairman of a committee to write an authentic history of the part Missouri and Missourians took in the civil war, yesterday issued a remarkable address. It was addressed to the ex-Confederates of Missouri and says in part: "The honor and glory of this great struggle was with the south, and southern soldiers ought in justice to themselves and their dead comrades to preserve the memory of it. While the north and northern soldiers are inveighing against all manifestation of sectional feeling they are erecting monuments to their successful leaders and telling the story very much to their credit and to our detriment. "The north had more than four soldiers to one in the south. Its armies were reinforced and assisted by b'00 ships of war. manned by li.j.OOO sailors. It had unlimited credit which meant an unlimited supply of money. It had factories to manufacture everyt.hi.ng needed to arm and equip, to supply and maintain, its armies and rleets. It had railroads running in every direction for the transportation of its troops. It had intercourse with the whole world and could draw recruits for its army and navy from the whole world. The south had none of these advantages, or had them only to a limited extent. But notwithstanding all its advantages it took the north four years to crush the south and then it did it by a grinding process and without having gained a. single decisive victory." NO GENERAL TRADE IMPROVEMENT. Colder Weather Stimulates Demand at Some Interior Points. New York, Xov. 27.—Bradstreet's says: Xotwithstanding the appearance of a demand for holiday specialties at some points in the south, at Chicago, St. Louis and in regions tributary thereto, trade throughout the country has shown no general improvement this week. Most favorable reports are from the territory west of the Mississippi and north of Missouri and Kansas, where colder weather has stimulated demand in the interior and country merchants have been buying with comparative freedom. The eastern cotton goods industry continues depressed. Consumers evidently do not intend to buy extensively until they believe the price of raw cotton la ready to advance. Competition from southern mills and more particularly over-production by nanufacturers who produce asingle staple underlie existing large stocks and the heaviness of prices. Iron and steel have not been in as active demand as expected and are lower, notwithstanding furnaces and mills are supplied with orders sufficient to carry them well into next year. A favorable feature is found in advances in wages of operatives in various industrial lines. There are 23o business failures reported throughout the United States this week, compared with 235 last week, 295 in the week a year ago. 2SS two years ago, 307 in 1S94 and 29S in 1893. threatening. It was estimated that, a crowd of 10,000, including a very large number of students, assembled and threatened the government with revolution and Count Badeni, the premier, with the guillotine.. An attempt was made to attack Count Badeni's house. Keitults in But Kew Damaged Head*. The police repeatedly charged the crowd, but refrained from using arms. The students resisted with sticks. One police inspector was severely injured by a kick from a horse; another was thrown from his horse and so badly hurt that it was necessarty to remove him to a. hospital. A few students and some citizens received slight injuries. Not until nearly 11 o'clock was quiet restored. Yesterday's edition of most of the evening newspapers was confiscated and the police freely arrested persons offering papers in the streets. A serious riot is reported at G-ratz, the capital city of Styria. It apears that the students and a large body of workmen attacked three newspaper offices, doing some damage. The police, with the assistance of the troops, have restored order and twenty arrests have been made of the ringleaders. San-ml L. Clemens fMark Twain) was among these expelled from the gallery of the unterhaus yesterday. Elevaii Unterhaus Members Expelled. There was police in the uiuerhausyes- terday when the body was called to order, and so violent was the conduct of several socialist members that they were removed from the chamber by force. Later the following members were suspended: Herren Schroenerer, Reiger, Resel, M. Kosakiewicz, Schrammel, Weller, Llngg, Verkaff. Hybes and Bener. The morning session was a failure and recess was taken to a.fternoon, when the house reassembled. The reappearance of President Abrahamovics was greeted by a storm of abuse, the slamming of desk lids, whistling, etc. He repeatedly tried to address the Leftists, but his voice was inaudible amid the uproar, the only articulate sounds distinguishable being cries from the Leftists of "Out with the police." Wolff Blows Lustily His Whistle. Dr. Wolff, the German Nationalist leader, contributed prominently to the pandemonium. Upon this occasion, he kept on blowing a shrill whistle. Herr Resel. a Social Democrat deputy, also indulged in shrill whistlings In the midst of this uproar President Abrahamovics opened the sitting and twice called Dr. Wolff to order. As this had no effect fc eWrtSSWi between the tintTsn •jtHtk French troops and discredits the re- pert. The collision was said, to have occurred at Xikki in the Niger territory and if it took place could not well be disavowed by either nation.

Sttl) the officials, both at London and at Paris, say that their commanders In the disputed territory were ordered to avoid any hostile action. For the last thirty years the nations of Europe have struggled for territory In the rich river countries of Africa. The boundaries along the Congo are fairly well established, and England, of course, claims dominion from the source to the mouth of the Nile, a dominion which is fairly conceded by the rival nations. But along the banks:>f the Niger they have found active competition om the part of the French. The va.lU8.bla trade of the Niger country is under the control of the Royal Niger company, a chartered English concern, and thecom- pany has made treaties with, the chiefs of Nicki, Sokoto, Gando and Boussa, which give practical security to the trade of the whole lower valley of that ri ver. The English claim that the land from the twelfth parallel of latitude to the mouth of the river must be conceded to them, Xo less than that will be for a moment accepted. Lieutenant Breton- net, of the French army, with a force of Cingalese, marched in August last Into the country of Boussa, and representatives of the Royal Niger company at once protested and demanded his removal. Diplomats of the two nations appointed a conference In Paris, which but recently completed its sitting's. Its awards have not yet been made public, but it is believed Premier Salisbury was basing his remarks on that award when he said in the recent address on lord mayor's <3ay that England wag not desirous of "painting the map red," but that Its people occupied land "for business" and could not recede from any position which had been token.

New York, Xov. 27.—As a result of tie war now being waged between the Arbuckle.

The Woolson Spice company, which is controlled by the Havemeyers, .s selling Rio Xo. 7 at 9 cents a pound. Xot to be outdone the Arbuckles have mace a reductioH in their prices. Coffee is now cheaper than it has been since before the war. Old Iowa Soldier Given a J'ob. Des Moines. la., Nov. 27.—L. if. Shaw, the governor-elect, has appointed Joseph H.
