They have never been equaled in Logansport. WASHINGTON, April 24.—The reports from Nicaragua confirm the statements of the dispatches that a blockade of Mc- amgua ports would be Great Britain's means of executing her demands. The understanding 1 is that the blockade •will begin next Saturday, giving- Nicaragua the three full days intervening to yield to the demands in every particular. There is good reason to believe that the demands will not be altered, reduced or compromised in the slightest particular, one of the main purposes of England being- to administer a lesson to Nicaragua, and indirectly to all southern republics as to British methods of redress. A PHclflu Ulockatlo. The maneuver will probably be a "pacific blockade," as heretofore explained, care being taken to bring Nicaragua's commerce to a stand- Btill and yet to leave foreign commerce as free as ever. It is said, however, that Nicaragua's coast commerce is very small, so that Great Britain's pacific blockade may develop into a more forcible move in order to make it effective. tint Notified of Blockade. Sir Julian Pauncefo»e, the British ambassador, has not been advised by the home government as to the contemplated blockade and landing of troops in Nicaragua, but in British circles this course has been accepted as certain for some time. Such assurances as Great Britain has given to the United States have been sent to Ambassador Bayard in response to inquiries. Cabinet Busy. WASHINGTON, April 34. — Secretary Grebham had a long interview with Sir Julian Patincefote, the British ambassador, Wednesday, and also saw Mr. Guzman, of Nicaragua, who communicated to him the intelligence he had from his government. Very shortly afterwards members of the cabinet, one by one, drove out to Woodley. the president's country home, where a special cabinet meeting- was held. Wnnts No Blorp Liuul. In the best-posted diplomatic circles opinion is divided as to the outcome of tho Jh-il.ish-Nicaraguan trouble. The British view, as stated by one in a position to speak with authority, is as follows: "Groat Hrllnln war.t.s no more territory In Niciirucun, :iml lias Riven assurances "to tliut elfoct. Her only Interest thuro hns boon 10 afford protection to Clarcnco, ihu Mosijul'.o cblof, unil ns Ills Indian subjects »ro well-Dish exllcus the policy of thu foreign oflico has boon to withdraw from N!c:i,rti£ua us soon us was expedient For thut reason Connul Hatch would have been recalled nt a early day If tao Nlcaraguans had not at teraptort to flrlve him out. His return Is no domunilod because of any service ho can d Groai Britain there, but wholly as repariuioi for tho indignity anil as :-. warning that, sue] semi-barbarous methods will 1101 be tolerated As to the cash Indemnity, it Is not, poss that Nicaragua cannot raise llie money. she has not it in her treasury, she cat) borrow It on bonds. I-itm! JiiHLoHd of Moni'y. Another view is presented by Central American diplomat a.s follows "The cash indemnity demanded by'-Grca Britain Is £15,500 or about $75,000. but. In view o Nicaragua's depreciated silver currency, th amount is actually, about j-^15,000 in lier silver coin. It Is no easy task for these Central American countries to raise such a sum. ns tnelr credit ia not as good at money centers as if the credit of ono o£ the states of tko United States. It would bo much easier, therefore for Nicaragua to give an Island or a piece oi territory if Groat Brltian would accept payment ia land. There Is a larpe amouni of surplus land In Nicaragua whleh could be readily parted with. "Mexico paid Great Britain a demand In just this way by ceding the small territory at the south of Yucatan, now forming the BritisL settlement or Belize. It was no loss to Mexico, and Great Britain preferred it to money. It has never seemed to arouse un expression of tho Monroe doctrine by the United States. If Nicaragua offers Great Britain the Islands of Paguona del Malz or Grande del Malz, meaning great or small coral islands. It may raise a direct Issue between the United States and Great Britain. Tho Islands are only 90 miles northeast of Graytown, the Atlantic ec- tranco to tho proposed NIc»ragua canal, and they are on the direct line of a vessel from the United States to the canal, not far from Hon cador Keel, where the Kearsarge sunk." sian minister at Peking has oeen instructed to negotiate a cession of Chinese territory to balance the Japanese acquisitions. China, not being in a. position to reject the demands^ hopes to confine them to the session of part of Manchuria and an ice-free port. NITRO-GLYCERINE EXPLODES. Six Ton* of the Stuff Tiike Fire nt Lima, O., Causing Much Diimiieo. CLEVELAND, 0., April 24.—A special to the press from Lima, 0., says: An explosion in a nitro-glycerine factory of the Ohio and Indiana Torpedo'COrapany, at noon Wednesday' startled the city, broke many plate- glass windows and the windows in residences here, and caused chimne}'S to topple over and plaster to fall from the walls of many houses. The explosion was caused by the nitre-glycerine taking-fire while it was being run. The two workmen whohad charge of', the place, H. Eaton and A. M. Underwood, were eating dinner when, they discovered a fire in the hose. They ran for their lives, and .succeeded in stopping a freight train which was approaching the works. A farmer was also warned away. There were six tons of the explosive in the factory at the time of the disaster. EVIDENCE WEAK. Is Not Sufficient to Convict Durrant of Murder. Witnesses Fail to Positively Identify Him—Discovery of Blood Stains in the Church. WORK OF TRAIN WRECKERS. Diabolical AttumptH on a Blir Four FJyor Fall_by Morcat Chiinco. NII.ES, Mich., April 24.—Two attempts were made Tuesday nig-ht near Benton Harbor to wreck the Big- Four train known as the "Court House Flyer." The first attempt was made •> miles south of Benton Harbor, where the train struck a dummy-car which had been placed on the track. The car was demolished and the front end of the engine damaged.

This last accident occurred ut what is known as the Sodus curve the. most dangerous part of the road and had the train beeu running 1 at th regular speed, a frightful accident would have beeu the result, with pos sibly a great loss of life.

CEDAK SPRINGS, Mich., April 24.— Mack Grillin, aged 32 years, the engineer of the Cedar Springs Milling company, was caught in the machinery at 7 o'clock Wednesday morning, and his life practically pounded out.

Eighty-eight female missionaries are maintained in all parts of the world, and some of these are in attendance from Africa, China, Japan, Turkey and Persia. SAX FRANCISCO. April 24.—It ma.y be that the Emanuel Baptist church murders—the killing of Miss Hlaueh Lamont April 3, and of Miss Minnie Williams April 12—may go down us unsolved mysteries in the criminal annals of San 1'runeisco. The police, it is true, have gathered much evidence, all circumstantial, but the witnesses for the stale, under the lire of cross-examination, have wavered in the matter of identification. Jllotnl 5>t.iiii»-; Discovered. Additional light has been thrown on the murder of Miss Williams. Searchers have found bloodstains in the church, showing that the murderer had made his way in the dark from the library closet, where lay the mutilated body, to the washroom, buck of the pulpit, in the rear part of the church. The prints of the bloody fingers were seen, at intervals. The extent of the blood stains in the washroom go to show that the murderer had no light while washing his hands, for a judicious person, as his actions prove him to be, would not have spattered so much blood around if he could have seen what he was doing. And it is evident if he had had a light he would not have left the bloody stains on the basin. This tends to prove that the murderer was familiar with 'every part of the church building. Tryinc to Prove an Alibi. Durrant is making strenuous efforts to prove an alibi in the Lament case by attempting to show that on the day Miss Lamont disappeared he was not her escort from school at 3:30 o'clock ' in the afternoon. Three young ladies have identified him as the yovmg man they saw on a car with Miss Lament at that hour. Durrant will call on his college classmates to prove that he was at a lecture at that hour. It is said that Dumint's notebook contains no notes of the lecture and that he obtained information as to the subject matter of the lecture from another student. This matter is a question of importance to Durrant and he bases his hopes on the memory of his fellow-students. Durrant was marked present at this lecture, biit it had been a habit of the students to answer present for each other and the roll book does not count. STATE SEWS BY WIRE.
