UNCLE SAM f*)St S REPL? Government ' at A Standstill* tint Step* Will Sftofc 1»6 tahen t« Enforce tiift Demand, ft 1* Said- WASHiSat08» April 20.—No infofmft* Kon has been feceived here concerning Lord Kimberly's reply to Nicaragua's aiiswef to * he British ultimatum, bttt it is believed that Great Britain "Will shortly proceed to collect the claim of debt, as it is viewed from the British standpoint. The fact that Great Britain's exercise of force Will Hot be exerted so as to effect the United States interest is indicated by the fact that neither the state department nor Sir Julian Pauncefote have been noti- ' fled of Lord Kimberly's response. It is said such notification would be given if United States interests were to be livcti Remotely imperiled, The British 'mode of action against Nicaragua is believed to be a "pacific blockade" of all Nicaraguan ports, bttt not interfering with the United States or other commerce. The latest information shows that Great Britain can at once bring to bear the formidable fleets for blockading purposes, on the Pacific side and the other on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua. Two fleets, 19 ships m all, are variously disposed, but all cottld be rendezvoused f oiva demonstration of force. The extent of the fleets indicates the preparations for emergencies Great Britain always maintains. GERMANY IS WATCHFUL. Three Powers Arrange to Protect Thelf \ Asian Interest. '•• LONDON, April 22.—A dispatch to "•e Times from Berlin says that The ' .German Gazette (semi-official) •van article of similar import to • . u ••ed in The Cologne Gazette. r j!W ^ Gazette said that in 1 view of the^i- jttre being,exercised by the war party in Japan, Germany at the beginning of March enjoined the Japanese government to be moderate in the terms demanded for peace, urging that the cession of territory upon the mainland of China would be. especially calculated to induce the intervention of the powers. When it was shown by the published terms of peace that Japan was not disposed to Follow Germany's Advice steps were immediately taken to establish an accord with the powers, and a complete agreement has been reached with Russia and Fran-£,,,. The three powers, Germany, Russia.,'"'. France, will now take steps to protect.,,' ^ interests in Western Asia. The question of territorial changes will be first kept in view against Japan's desire to bind herself like a solid girdle around China in order to be able to shut off China entirely from Europe. In case of need the three powers mentioned intend to avert in'good time any injury to their, interests. It was added, however,,that •'. .Germany would be m_ade.,to, see^Japan ''enjoy the fruits of her military,prowess on condition that • it Germany's interests. , does not injure SPANISH TROOPS. to Their Condition Is Wretched Owing Yellow Fever and Fatigue. NEW YORK,'April 22.—The Ward line steamer Niagara has arrived from Cienfugos and Santiago, Cuba. It was learned from one of the passengers that a very lively state of things existed at the seat of war. The insurgents had a following of 10,000 men, 8,000 of whom were well armed. Many encounters have already taken place in which the government troops had been worsted, The officials made very light of these engagements, the passenger said, and claimed a victory wherever they had the slightest encounter with the insurgents. The Spanish troops lately arrived from Spain were said to be in a wretched state, having suffered greatly from yellow fever and from fatigue in pursuing small bodies of the insurgent troops over the mountains. China Negotiates a Loan. BERLIN, April 23.—The Chinese government has completed arrangements here for a loan of 800,000,000 marks at 0 per cent interest, LEGISLATURE ADJOURNED.

SoRDBNtoWJr, J5T. J., April 20.—'Mrs. Delia t. Parnell, mother of the late Charles Stewart Parnell, tvho lives at ironside, overlooking the Delaware river near here, was found bleeding and unconscious by Charles Casey, son of the farmer who has charge of the farm at Ironsides. While descending a Vill which marks the boundary of the property formerly 1 occupied by Mrs. Parnell's father, young Casey heard the moans of some one apparently in distress. Hurrying to the spot from Which the sound issued, he fottnd Mrs. Parnell lying beside the fence with her face covered with blood. By her side Were two small pieces of board, apiece of fence paling about three feet long, and a brick. Help Was obtained, and she \vas carried to the house of Farmer Casey. Dr. Shipps, who was hastily summoned, made an examination and found that besides several bruises about the face, the woman had a lacerated wound on the right side of the head, from which the blood flowed freely. Mrs. Parnell is unconscious and because of her advanced age, her condition is regarded as critical. The authorities are unable to determine whether she was assaulted or fell and received her injuries. Her hand bag Was found alongside the railroad track near by, with her pocketbook missing and papers scattered in all directions. This circumstance lends an active probability to the theory that she was brutally assaulted and robbed. Mrs. Parnell frequently came to this plaoe at night and remained until a late hour. Mrs. Parnell May Die. BOKDENTOWN, N. J., April 22.—Mrs. Parnell passed a good night, but as the day advanced she grew weaker. It is doubtful whether she will survive the shock of the assault. Nothing has yet developed to throw any light upon the case, although the detectives are still at work. _ FLOOD GATES WERE OPENED. Prayer of Evangelist Moody at Ft. Worth Promptly Answered. FORT WORTH, Tex.,April 22.—All of Texas has needed rain, so the great evangelist, Dwight Moody, called upon his audience of 8,000 Christians to pray fervently that the floodgates might be opened. This was at 3 p. m. .Sunday. Sunday night when the tabernacle was crowded by 10,000 people • from Fort Worth and surrounding cities Mr. Moody announced that word had come from several points that rain had fallen. A few minutes later the storm burst on Fort Worth and torrents of rain fell. Then Mr. Moody gave thanks to God and called upon the congregation to join in singing. The song surged forth from 10,000 voices when a Cracking Noise Was Heard, and then the roof sank and the rafters gave way, and the heavy timbers and boards, covered with tar and gravel, came down on a portion of the congrO' gation. There was a panic. Scores ..upon scores of w° me .n Dinted., some men lost their heads and piled pell'mel over those near them. Mr. Moody grasped the situation, and, moving to the middle of the platform, lifted both hands to heaven, moving his arms to and fro. His attitude and coolness stopped the panic and men began to go to work to rescue those^ in danger. A drenching rain was falling, but they worked.hard and the wounded were soon taken out and carried to their homes or to the houses near by. A dozen persons were seriously injured, several fatally. Forty others were slightly, hurt. ARDMORE'S BIG LOSS, Tho Indian Territory Town Damaged to the Extent of 8800,000. ARDMORE, I. T., April 20.—Twenty- four hours ago Ardmore could boast of being the largest and most prosperous city in the Indian Territory. Now the entire business portion of the city is wiped out by fire and 150 business houses, among which were many two and-three-story bricks, are a smoulder- ing mass of ruins. The aggregate loss entailed is variously estimated at between $600,000 and $800,000, with the latter figures probably coming near the correct amount. The insurance will foot up to but one-third ot the loss, TO PROTECT THEMSELVES.

NEW YORK, April 20.— The disclosure 6f a great case of undervaluation ftt ;he custom house has caused the collector of the port, James G. Kilbreth, much annoyance. The amount of undervaluation is said to be $100,000. The matter briefly stated that O. L. Sypher, the importer of antique furni- tures, has beett importing goods at & greatly undervalued rate. The matter was brought to the notice of the ctts* toms authorities through a discharged employe of the firm, L. H. Todd. The case has been under investigation by Special Deputy Phelps, who said: "Three years ago, when Sypher & Co. suspended, special agents suspected that they had been engaged in illegal practices, but they carried away and secreted all documents in a cellar itt Mount Veriion. The customs authorities investigated the matter, but it Was never completed and tho officials inrere very much annoyed." Colonel Phelps thinks efforts have been made to stop the investigation. The official upon whom opprobrium is cast is said to be Eugene Honeywell. He is said to have been in collusion with the firm. Ho has been in the department for 15 years. THE INCOME TAX. Commissioner Miller Thinks It Will Bring In Over 814,000,000. WASHINGTON, April 20. — Commissioner Miller of the internal revenue bureau has informed -Secretary Carlisle that telegraphic advices received from the collectors of the several internal revenue districts indicate that the aggregate amount of income tax shown by the returns which were filed before the 16th inst., will be about $14,865,000. Delayed returns and corrections, it is believed, will considerably increase this amount. The total expenditures on account of the work, including necessary salaries and allowances to the end of the present fiscal year mil not exceed $185.000. The best judgment of the treasury officials is ttffet, but for the adverse decision of the supreme court, the amount carried by the returns would have been about $80,000,000, which, during the pendency of. the income tax bill was the estimate of the department. GENERAL M'COOK RETIRES. Ho Served Continuously In the Army Tor Forty-three Years.

If neither party gives silver the recogni- • ion it deserves, a new party will "... spring up which will sweep the country like wildfire." Senator Mitchell, in commenting on. ? the silver convention in Denver, said: "I do not think much good will come of that gathering. It is almost impossible to build up a party upon one issue,., whether it is silver or or tariff. It was done upon slavery, but that was an- other question. I prefer to wait and.- see what the old parties will do. If" the Repupnblican does not coincide with me, I prefer to do my share to educate it, instead of breaking away. think one result of this Denver convention will be to make the Republicans party realize fully the gravity of the •> situation, and may lead to its adopting; a more liberal policy towards silver at... the next Republican national convention."
