Sir Julian Pauncefote, of Great Britain, in behalf of the powers, presented a joiht note making a pressing appeal to the feelings of humanity and moderation of the presidant and the American people in existing differences with Spain, tfith the earnest hope that further negotiations will lead tb an agreement, which, while securing maintenance of peace, will afford all necessary guaratt* bees for the re-establishment of order in Cuba* The president replied, recognizing the friendly spirit which actuated the powers, joining in the liope that the outcome would be a maintenance of peace with Spain and a termination of the chronic condition of disturbance in Cuba which so greatly injures the interests and menaces the peace of the American people by the character and consequences of the struggle thus kept up at our doors, besides shocking its sentiment • of humanity. The government of the United States appreciates the humanitarian and disinterested character now made in behalf of the powers named and for its part is confident squal appreciation will be shown for ta own earnest and unselfish endeavors to fulfill its duty to humanity by end- ng a situation, the indefinite prplonga- ,ion of which has become unsufferable.

LEE LEAVES HAVANA. ii. .' WAfeteirtSio*, April •?.— The df both houses of congress were pfceked b'y an anxious crowd yesterday which was stunned when it was annottnced that the president's message, which had been expected for several days, would not be presented until Monday. Tlie reason given by the president to those who had seen him was that a dispatch had been received from Consul General Lee that he could not get the Americans out of Cuba before Sunday, bnt there is reason to believe that the report from Madrid that matters are fast assuming a change there and that Spain may yield after all.nad as much to do with the sudden Change as anything.

Correa, the Spanish minister of war, in an interview said: "Spain must not be alarmed if war is declared at the sinking of a Spanish warship.

A dispatch from San Juan DC Puerto llico announces the arrival there of the Spanish cruisers Vi/.caya and Almirante Oquendo which left Havana recently, It is said that the Italian government has sold three first class torpedo boats to the United States and denies that Spain has been unable to obtain the Italian war ship Garibaldi. Replying to the English house oi commons, the government leader, Bal- lour, said the question as to whether ,he United States, not being a signatory of the declaration of Paris, would n the event of war with Spain, b« sound by the provisions of that decla« ration, raises an important point ol nteruational law upon which a ques- ;ion might advantageously be addressed to attorney general. In the aldermanic elections in Chicago a few days ago the reform element won, electing twenty-five Out ol thirty-five candidates.

Sandys; "The Building of Lawn Tennis Courts," and "With the Canadian Northwest Mounted Police," are articles of peculiar interest. The announcement that Anthony Hope's novel, "Rupert of Hentzau," now running in McClure's Magazine, is soon to appear in book form is an error. It can not so appear until it has cbni eluded in -McClure's, and this will not be until mid-summer at least. In its serial publication, the story is now al its most absorbing stage.

Has a Good Farm, Lots of Stock and Pays Little Taxes. •' Dominion City, Man., Jan. 17,1898. •At the request of the Immi- gr a tion Department of the Canadian G o v- ernment, I the following information: I immigrated to Manitoba in October, 1892, from Luverne, Rock County, Minn., and took land in Dominion City, Manitoba, where -I now reside. I have been very successful in Manitoba, and- have more than doubled my capital since I went to Canada. I took about ?2,500 -worth of wheat, 200 bushels of flax and 600 bushels of oats; I do mixed farming. I milk as many as ten cows. Dairying and stock raising has paid me welll I have on the farm now 44 head of cattle and 18 head of horses, and sold during the past year, 1897, $425 worth of fat cattle. I have good buildings and a comfortable house and good stable. My children have had better school advantages in Manitoba than they had in Minnesota. The district schools are very thorough and good. My son,. now 16 years of age, is teaching the public school in our district, and receives a salary of $420 per year. All my children have dona well at school. I have ?1,700 insurance on my.buildings on the farni. I also pwn my personal warehouse, and ' ship all my grain through it to the railway station at Dpminion City. It is free of debt. •I have no prejudice against the stats of Minnesota, as I made a living and a little more while in the state, but would not take a farm as a gift in .Minnesota and leave Manitoba. ,Tbe taxation in Minnesota was too' great. I paid taxes on my stock and chattels. No such taxes have ever been exacted in Manitoba from me, and my land tax is about one-half or less than it was in Minnesota. I am delighted: with my new home, and expect in a few years to be in circumstances that will enable me to take life easy. Youra very truly, S. G. MAYNES. P.
