Attitude — A Boycott Proposed Against' England , Nicaragua, April 30.—The Nicaraguan- government has formally decided-to-accede to the compromise proposition of the settlement of the pending- trouble and this decision, has been communicated to tho authorities at Washington .and London. , . According to this proposition,.Nicaragua agrees to pay the 577,500 in.Lon- don fifteen days from the time the British ships leave the harbor of Corinto. ' It now remains for Great Britain to agree to this condition. , The government's course is regarded as shifting on Great Britain all further responsibility for. the trouble. The most positive .assurances of the prompt payment of the mojiey have been givun, so that there may be no question of uncertainty on this point. Nlcarncuttin Ancry lit Amcrlc»nn. MANAGUA, Nicaragua, April 30.—A leading Nicaraguan statesman, in an interview Tuesday, said: "Our (rovurnihent lias received no official ftdvlccs Jrom Washington, by wnlch TVO giitbor lhat the Americans have turned tholr backs upou us, and ro- runo to succor us In tho hour o! trial. Tho English havo at least pluolt In their favor. They have the Insolence to doty, through us, tho entire American continent, while the United States can never Justify tbolr •weakness of action which will remain a blot upon their history. Weak and small as our nation is, wo have shown more courage than tho United States, who encouraged u.s, only to desert us at the last moment," In concluding;, he said that ho would have preferred to see the much-vaunted Monroe doctrine die a more dignified death. To Boycott En(fl»nd. . NEW YOKK, April 30.—A special cablegram from Honduras announces that British. aggression in Venezuela and Nicaragua has caused so much feeling throughout Central American republics that a boycott against English importations is seriously talked of as a means of retaliation. The cablegram states that the boycott has already begun among the merchants of Honduras, and that concerted action throughout Central America may be expected. Such a movement would, of course, increase the United States' exports to Central America. Warships Are Sont. WASJIIXOTOX, April 30.—After several conferences Monday with Secretary Greshain aud Secretary Herbert, the secretary of the navy sent dispatches to the commanders of the United States gunboats Alert and the Atlanta, directing them to proceed 1 without delay to San Juan del Sur and Grey town, .• Nicaragua, respectively. "When Secretary Herbert was asked the significance of these orders he answered promptly as follows: Knasons' for the Action. "Tho newspapers say that a revolution 1 Is probable in Nicaragua. They state thftt the people are very much' dissatlslled wy}l the course of the government and ure Ukelj$T.o attempt to overthrow It. In order to prolgct the Interests of American . citizens, ' their, lives nod property, and following tho policy - always pursued in such oontlnscncies, I havo ordered tho Alert to San J\mn del Sur, and the Atlanta to Grey 7 town. In addition to these vessels • the Montgomery, now at Mobile, will sail on May 7th for Greytown, .conveying- tho Nlcarnguan canal commission to that place. The Monterey, which has sn.lled for Panama 'will remain a't Panama for the present. With two.Unitod States ships.on one side of Nicaragua and one ship on the other side, It Is plain that American Interests will bo well protected If tho • rumored revolution should take place. But I wish It distinctly understood that these vessels are sent to Nicaragua for tho purpose of earing tor citizens of the United States and their Interests, and not on any business connected with tho situation at Corinto." Why Wo Can't Interfere. While the policy of this povernment in the trouble at Corinto is well understood, the first authoritative statement on the subject was not made nntilMon- day. A cabinet officer said Monday evening that the United States could not interfere between Great Britain and Nicaragua in their matter of difference because Nicaragua was a sovereign state, recognized as such by Great Britain and the United States, and must hold herself responsible to Great Britain'for offenses committed against British subjects. He said: "The United States: government does not undertake to extend a protectorate over Cen-i tnil America and South America to such, an extent that a sovereign stale of one or the other of these countries may insult 'on- other sovereign nation with the expectation that this government will protect It from forcible resentment by. tho nation insulted. Such a principle has never been recognized by the United States, and Lf -we attempt to assert it, wa -would secure the enmity of every nation having dealings with Central and South. America. - .

Armour & Co. own no cattle on the plains and gain nothing by the advance in cattle. They buy in competition with over JOO others who slaughter locally or in the ditferent cities .or export their purchases, and Armour & Co. sell in competition with other large slaughterers, VOORHEES FOR FREE SILVER. The Indlima. Senator Saya tho yocuMou Should lie Settled. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 30.—Senator Voorhees submitted to a long interview Monday, in \ which he flatly 'pronounced for free- silver at the 10 to 1 ratio. He said the question had been agitated for years, and it was time the question was settled. The time has come, he said, when the labor- prcducing people Of the country are to decide whether they will submit to be longer "bullied out of half of their debt-paying money." He says . this ' country should not wait for England's approval. If gold win's 'in the fight it means the destruction of half of \he debt-paying money of. the United States and of the world and will double the burdens on pvery. debtor and multiply the gains and incomes of every creditor wherever .the sun shines. : ' . • _^_.
