Charged with Sending Misleading Dispatches to Italy, Feeling at Washington Regarding Premier Rudini's Virtual Back-Down from His Position. ITALY'S MISTAKE. WASHINGTON*. April 3.—Secreta.ry Elaine has received'the dispatch from the Italian government in reply to his letter. It was hastily translated and a copy was taken by Mr. Elaine to the cabinet meeting. It is supposed that the text of the dispatch will be given out by the state department after the cabinet meeting, but at this time the secretary refused to say anything about it. Enough is known about it through advices from Eome to indicate its character. That the note is pacific there is no doubt, and hence not a great deal of interest attaches to it. Each development in this little affair shows more and more that there have been misunderstanding between the two governments in the negotiations and the suspicion is that Baron Fava's zeal to serve his country has led him into statements respecting the action of this country that do not accord strictly with the facts. Mr. Elaine has pretty squarely charged the baron with misrepresenting the action of the American authorities, and, if report be true, the reply of Rudini will virtually admit that he has not been made acquainted with the •whole truth. Marquis Kudini still seems to lack a full understanding of the demands for indemnity. Secretary Elaine has not admitted the legal responsibility of the national government, nor has he pledged to pay over money to the Italian government for relatives of such victims of the mob as may have been subjects of King Humbert. What he has done has been to distinctly recognize that, in pursuance of treaty rights, the principle of indemnity is a proper matter for diplomatic discussion and for consideration by the United States. The application of the principle is for the future to determine. The evidence that public sentiment in the United States thoroughly upheld the stand taken by the administration was no less pleasingthan the knowledge that the negotiations between Italy and the United States could now go forward without danger of a Diplomatic rupture. • This \vas the interpretation placed upon the assurances contained in Marquis Rudini's dispatch. Practically the status of the case remains where it was before Baron Fava's recall. Diplomatic intercourse is not interrupted and the usual correspondence will go forward on all the bearings of the case. The attorney general had an interview with the president, one result of ' which was that the former at once telegraphed the United States attor-.' ney for Louisiana to make a prompt and thorough investigation . of all : ; matters connected with the lynch-; ing, what the state authorities are; doing, and what, if anything, can bel done to hasten their action in bringing. the lynchers to justice. The district attorney is instructed to report as early as possible. What will be done when the' Italian government learns that the! Ivew Orleans grand jury will do. nothing remains to be seen. Wheth-; er Rudini will be satisfied with a mere and unsuccessful effort to prosecute the lynchers is the next question.; That he will be confronted with this situation nobody doubts. Not a soul here believes that the local authorities will even indict the alleged culprits, much less punish them. BOYD VETOES THE BILL. Nebraska's Governor Disapproves the Maximum Freight Kate BUJ.
