NEW YORK. PRESIDENT SIMON' SAM OF HATTI. npression appeared to prevail in Port _ Prince that a German warship was apidly approaching UK-place. Of course is stated, thai tin.- Marblehead goes olely for the purpose of protecting American interests that might be hreatened by the outbreak of disorders n Hayti. It devolnpt-ii yesterday that Hayti had sent a reply to Germany's demands which is somewhat remarka- ile for it? finvmess, in view of the dit- erence in size of the two powers. The lay tier, nut-? makes it clear that the epublic is ready to discuss the merits, f the controversy, but does not desire have Germany pass judgment in the irst place, demand an indemnity and hereafter diseuss the merits. Gertniiii Diplomat Persona N'ou Grata. Moreover. Hayti gives notice to Ger- nany that theGerrnan charge d'affaires n Hayti. who made the recent de- nands, is persona nun grata, and that t is impossible for Hayti to conduct 'urther negotiations with him. It is tated that he offended against all rules it propriety and official etiquette by going directly before the president of Hayti and in a loud and angry t" ne and insulting manner threatening dire consequences unless immediate repara- ion was made to Germany. This personal affront to Hayti's chief executive s regarded as touching the honor and celf-respect of the country, and is felt o call for an apology. Under such cir- umstances the Haytien government has expressed a willingness to negotiate a settlement of the entire case at Berlin hus removing it from the hands of the objectionable German official now in Hayti. German View of tlie Matter. State department officials refuse to discuss the complication, or to indicate what course the United States will pursue in the matter, though it is evident that they do not regard it as likely to lave serious or permanent results. Con- Tdence is expressed in the intentions of the German government not to act unjustly towards the little republic. From the German standpoint the Haytien case is a simple one of collecting Indemnity for offense against a German citizen. It is pointed out that Germany has not yet presented an ultimatum to Hayti: no German fleet has been sent to Haytien waters; no official intima- .ion has been made that force would be exercised against the republic. The only tangible facts thus far, according to the German view of the case, are that an indignity has been committed against a German subject, causing him pecuniary loss and that Germany has asked an indemnity of 300.000 marks. •Where Trouble Is Likely to Appear. Among leading diplomats familiar with the case it is said that the Monroe doctrine cannot become involved except through a determination by Germany to hold a part of Haytien terri- ;ory. Germany has no such purpose, it is said, but is merely desirous of securing an indemnity. It is probable that Germany would readily give assurances that no territorial extension was involved if it were not for the fact that such assurance would concede the right of the United Stales to take a hand in the matter. It is not likely that any concession of this character will be made, as it is believed Germany will maintain her right to settle this indemnity question with Hayti in her own way and will insist that the United States herself recognized the principle in demanding of Turkey indemnity for outrages committed on American citizens. CLOVU KISIXO- DOWN IX FEKU. p a te Inelined to Give Us a Sho-w for » Spirited Foreij^n Policy. Washington, Dec. 1.—The state department has beer, notified that the Peruvian authorities are threatening the interests of Victor McCord. an American engineer who was arrested and confined in that country during a revolution, ar.dinwhose behalfourgovernment has preferred a claim for indemnity. The notification was formally given to tlje department throusrh a letter to tb» department from tne attorney in Peru who is prosecuting the claim. He says that the Peruvian government has now ! made overtures to McCord for a com- . promise of the claim. The lawyer says that "if the matter is not settled and the government is compelled to pay the $50,000 I shall be obliged to leave the country." The letter then goes on to say: "More recent letters from McCord advise me t!mt after declining all approaches of it-.-: Spanish persuasive character, and informing the Peruvians that the mat- i-r of the claim was in the hands of his government, which was alike interested in the protection of his rights and those if all other American citizens in Peru, all kinds of threats looking to coercion had been resorted to calculated to inflame the ignorant people against him, such as threatening to expel him from the country, and obliging the Peruvian railroad corporation to dismiss him from its service." He adds that "it is difficult to understand how insolence or intolerence could be made more insulting or reprehensible." The letter concludes: "The foregoing makes it plain that Mr. E. C. "White, of 136 Liberty street. New York, for years engaged in business pursuits in Peru, understood and meant what he said in a letter addressed to President MeKin- ley from Arequipa. the scene of all this outrage, dated March 11, 1S97, and which is on file in your department, and from which I beg leave to submit the following extracts: 'Just as sure as this Me- Cord claim is not promptly paid it will embolden others [Peruvians], under pretext of rebellion or revolution, to murder or maltreat Americans at will, knowing that if this Just claim is not paid there is no protection for Americans in this country. * * * I, knowing these people as well as I do, am prepared to say that this claim will never be paid unless the United States government makes them pay if All of which is most respectfully submitted." PROSPECT FOTi ANOTHER d.AIM'. American Boys Thrown Into a Nicaragua Jail anil Kept Incommunicado. Managua, Nicaragua. Nov. 11.—[Correspondence Associated Press.]—William Sheridan, a 10-year-old son of William Sheridan, of California, temporarily residing at his coffee estate near Meta- galpa, who had been attending the National college at Managua, has been imprisoned incommunicado in the national prison on a declaration by Roberto Eck- nian, a German, the director of the college, on suspicion that young Sheridan was one of a party of students who exploded a toy bomb at or near the college door. Three days later Hugh Sheridan, 11 years old, and a brother oC William, also a student at the college, was imprisoned or. a declaration of Eekman on a similar charge- None of the native students who were alleged to have been in the party with the Sheridans were arrested. It is al- that Eekman before he made his declaration against Hugh Sheridan was informed that the Sheridan boys at the time o£ the explosion of the toy bomb were over half a mile away from the college. Eekman, who is a German subject, was evidently afraid to accuse" the native boys, fearing that their parents would make a protest and eventually influence President Zelaya to dismiss him. The United States consul at Managua was refused permission to see the boys. The United States legation made an effort in their behalf, and both boys \vere eventually released from prison, and requested to appear before a criminal judge the next day, the government evidently hoping that they would run away and go to their father's estate. They were on hand w-hen the court opened the following day, however, and the judge having no testimony against them took the declaration of a physician that the accused were under the age of manhood and dismissed them on the nominal promise that they would appear in court when summoned.

Locomotive Fireman Dies the Horrible Death She Preyed For. Mandan. N. D., Dec. 1.—Two weeks ago Joseph Williams, fireman on the Northern Pacific coast passenger train, in a moment of insanity, threw himself into the firebox of his locomotive and u-as instantly burned to death. He was the victim of a woman's curse. It is stated by railroad men that :he fireman was running the switch er.cirte in the Mandan yards at the time a young: girl was run down and crippled for life. She subsequently came into prominence through the appeals o£ her friends for postage stamps, with which to enable her to procure artificial limbs. The mother of the srirl. who appeared in the yard very shortly after the accident, assailed the young engineer with all the lar.guage at her command and finally wound up with: "May the God above you. that loves my sirl. end your days in the firebox of your engine." This was several years ago, but the word.-- rang in the ears of the man who recently leaped into the furnace to his death. " He could not forget the words: ihf-y were with him constantly. He seemed to hear them repeatedly every n:omer;t. and it was the mother's curse that finally drove him to take his life. MARTIK THORN. never changed color during the trying ordeal. With lips firmly compressed and jaws set hard he faced the judge, jury and court room full of spectators with well-feigned stoicism. About three weeks ago Thorn's first trial on the charge of murder was begun, but owing to the illness of a juror it had to be abandoned after three days. A second trial opened a week ago last Monday, and counting- out three days on which the court did not sit the trial consumed only six days. Thorn's Testimony of No Value- to Him. Mrs. Nack's testimony during the mistrial made it compulsory for Thorn's lawyers to change their line of defense in the second trial, and they made a direct charge against Mrs. Xack and insisted that her alleged confession was a lie and that she herself was the instigator and perpetrator of the murder, Thorn being ignorant of the killing until after Guldensuppe had been shot by Mrs. Nack. The woman was not produced during- the second trial, but Thorn went on the stand and substantiated all the assertion? made by the lawyers as to the midwife's guilt. His story, as the verdict shows, did not have the desired effect upon the jurymen. New Trial 1'rompt.ly Refused. Judge Maddox's charge was carefuHy prepared and well delivered. It was acknowledged by the lawyers for the prisoner to be extremely lucid, fair and impartial. The jury remained in deliberation just three hours, when it sent word to the judge that it was ready to render a verdict. The faet of the jury remaining out so long gave hope to the defense. But when it came in—"Guilty of the* charge preferred." were the ominous words which fell from the lips of the foreman of the jury. Thorn's lawyers moved for a new trial on the ground that the verdict was not in accordance with the weight of evidence, but the motion was overruled. Admits That He 1'erjured Himself. When Martin Thorn had been led back to his cell after the conviction he admitted that the verdict was just, and that he and not Mrs. Nack killed Gulden- sr.ppe. This acknowledgment of guilt took place while Thorn's cell in the jail was being prepared for him. He said: "I am glad It is over and the verdict given. I am convicted and am contented. It was I who killed Guldensuppe. and I believe every word that Mrs. Nack said upon the stand was substantially correct. When I was on the stand I lied when telling the story as I did. but I lied to clear myself. It is no use carrying- It any further. I am guilty and am convicted. It is what I expected and -what I suppo?e people think I deserve, and perhaps I do." New York. Dec. 1,—The Herald today prints Martin Thorn's denial of the re- pnrt that he had confe-"sed. SAY3 HE~HAS"CAUGHT MERRY. Case of Superintendent Ijindt. Madison. Wis., Dec. 1.—The state board of control will meet at Waukesha today, and it is expected that the question of the reinstatement of S. S. Landt as superintendent of the state public school at Sparta will then be taken up. It is believed to be a. safe prediction that Landt will be reinstated. Members of the board have said that they werewaitingfor the action of the court., acd the dismissal of the charges against him would appear to leave his -record clear.

Depredation Claims Thut an Indian Aff n* Says Are Bold K:i»cMliiy. Washington, Dec. 1. — Lieutenamt Colonel Randlett, acting Indian age«t at tlr« Unitah and Ouray agency i» Utah, <r, his annual report to the i»- terior department says official information frum the department of justiee shows that more than GOO depredattom claims, amounting to more than $500,09*, have been tiled against the Ute Indians in the United States court of claims, and the suits instigated in such a manner as to hold either of the confederated bands equally responsible for the alleged depredations. The provision of th« government for counsel to defend these cases is stated to be inadequate, and the southern Utes, of Colorado, have united with the Unoompahgres, Unitahs and White Rivers, of Utah, in contracting for additional counsel. The agent alleges that without doubt nearly all these claims are fraudulent, and that these Indians also have just claims against the United States that should be adjusted. It is claimed that there are large bodies of land In Colorado they relinquished their rights tm on condition that It should be sold and the proceeds accrue to their interest benefit: that no credits have been made to them for such sales, and that most of those lands have been set aside by ex- ecu live orders for public parks, for whiek if ^o retained it is urged they should be paid.

To make matters worse wires were in very bad shape last night between Chicago and Desplaines, and it was practically impossible to get word from there. The police here do not feel at all sure that the man captured is Merry. The police last night got their first information regarding the cause of the murder of Mrs. Merry- Nicholas Schwartz, a peddler who had been employed by Merry for three years, told them that oc the day preceding the Murder he made $7.78 for Merry by peddling, and it was to get this from his wife after she had refused to surrender <~ that Merry strangled her to death.
