Slopo to Thus Chcclc the Intention to Enforce tlio Monroe Doctrine - England to Be Hopalcl by Concession* In the ' Mediterranean. NEW YORK, April 0.—A dispatch to The World from London says: The positive statement came to your correspondent from a leading financier of the city (tha money making part of London) that England has concluded a treaty of alliance with Spain. His final message was, "Within 10 days Europe will be startled by the official announcement of this fact." Continuing, The World correspondent says: "I. give this statement with the reserve which its international importance warrants, pointing out only that the sensitive money interests of the city nre often better informed on such matters than is any any other part of the community, except the highest official authority, and that my informant is now, and for many years has been, associated with leading financial enterprises. "Such a treaty would have a vastly important bearing upon the continental situation. It would have a commensurately important bearing upon the Cuban question in tho United States. Opposed to America's Position. "I quoted to my informant the statement in the New York newspapers tli at the Washington government has received a semi-official intimation from the British ministry that Great Britain would approve of the recognition by the Uuued States of Cuban belligerency. "His reply was that exactly the contrary is the case, that in tho first place the Salisbury ministry is disposed to do anything it can with safety and in reason to check the pretensions of the American government to interfere in either West Indian or South American affairs—particularly in the West Indies, where Great Britain herself has most important interests—and that, secondly, Spain by this treaty has made important concessions . to England in return for the latter's more or less active support of Spain in her conflict with the Cuban rebels. How England Is Repaid. "I can furnish no further details of this alleged treaty than that, according to my informant, it will include giving to Great Britain the right to harbor and refit her fleets in the Mediterranean ports of Spain. Tho harbor of Cartagena is one of the finest on the Mediterranean and would shelter the entire British navy. "The importance of an Anglo-Spanish alliance to Great Britain is obvious. Neither Gibralter nor Malta—England's only two pprts on the Mediterranean—is capable of either harboring or refitting a fleet, but with both the Italian and Spanish ports thrown open to the British navy, the French fleet at Toulon would be at England's mercy, and Eussia could hardly make a junction from the Black sea with the ships of her French ally. "Such are the apparent reasons why Great Britain should wish to make such an alliance as above indicated.'' APPEAL FOR ARBITRATION. Document Is Signed by Cardinals Gibbons, Vaughun nnd Logue. BALTIMORE, April 6.—Cardinal Gibbons has given out an appeal for arbitration instead of war, signed by himself and Cardinals Vaughan of Westminster and Logue of Ireland. The document is the result of a correspondence upon the subject between Cardinal Gibbons and his colleagues, whose names are appended to the appeal and was issued ou Easter Sunday because of the appropriateness of the day. MANY THOUSAND HOMELESS. SAYS IT'S ALL RIGHT, Manilla, Cap tol of the J'hlllipine Island* Nearly Destroyed. MADRID, April G.—A terrible fire has occurred at Manilla, in the Philippine Islands, by which 4,000 houses were destroyed and 30,000 people left homeless. Manilla is the capital of tho Philippine Islands and has a population of 100,000, or, with the suburbs, 160,000. It is one of the great emporiums of the East. The principal public buildings are the cathedral, the palaces of the governor and archbishop, a beautiful townhouse, 10 churches of different denominations, several monasteries and convents, the arsenal, three colleges for young men and two for young women, a large theatre, customhouse and barracks. It has frequently been visited by severe and destructive earthquakes. Venezuela's Official Case. LONDON, April 6.—The Times prints, •without comment, long extracts from two publications with the imprint of Atlanta, Ga. The first is entitled "The Official History of the Discussion Between Venezuela and Great Britain on the Guiana Boundaries." The second is a pamphlet addressed to The Times containing Senor Selja's article from the Caracas Diario. Bldtabele Rebellion Spreading. CAPE TOWN, April 1.—The news from the seat of the outbreak in Matabele increases in gravity, and details are coming to hand of the failure of the forces dispatched against the natives to gain any substantial advantage over them. The rebellion is spreading, and the inadequacy of the present force and equipment to quell it is admitted. Reciprocity Approved. WASHINGTON, April 6.—A number of replies in regard to reciprocity have been received during the past week by the bouse sub-committee having charge of the subject. The general tone of the letters is that of those previously received, approving reciprocity, the milling interests being well repre- eenteci- I>Ift7i of Mexico Officially lb- dofNc4 (lie Monroe Doctrine. CITY OF MEXICO, April 2. —The most important part of the president's message, delivered at tho opening of congress, is an allusion to the Anglo- Vene?,uelan controversy and President Cleveland's message to congress. After going into the matter at some length, he concludes as follows: "Without entering into discussion as to its original and historical circnm- stances, which gave rise to its enunciation; without descending into the particulars as to the limit marked out by its author and prudently recalled by President Cleveland, the Mexican government cannot but declare its partial* ity for a doctrine which condemns as criminal any attacks upon the part of the monarchies of Europe on the republics of America. The whole of our history, especially the struggle of a foreign empire, which is European both in its origin, form and resources, and the torrents of bloodshed in that struggle are sufficient testimony to the world of our love of independence and our abhorrence to all outside interference. It is our opinion that to the United States, with the Immensity of It* Resources, belongs tho moral obligation of assisting other republics of the hemisphere against the attacks of Europe, if such attacks are to be considered as possible. But for the attainment of the end to which we all aspire each one of these republics ought, by means of a declaration like that of President Monroe, proclaim that every attack on the part of a foreign power, with a view of curtailing territory or independence, or of altering the institutions of any Oi'e of the republics of America, v, onld ho >-••'. :sid- ered by the nation mal , such declaration as an attack upon itself. In this manner the doctrine now called by the name of Monroe would become tho doctrine of America in the fullest sense of the word, and, although originating in the United States, would belong to international law of this continent. As to the means to reduce this idea to practice, this is not the place or time to discuss them..'' _ ' CONDITION OF CUBA. GAELBLE^POSITION NOT AN ACTIVE CANDIDATE FOR THE' PRESIDENCY, Entire Island at Present, in n State of Most Woeful Destitution. NEW YORK, April 4.—A special to The World from Havana says the total amount of sugar made in Cuba this year will nof exceed 130,000 tons. The normal crop is about 1,000,000 tons. This enormous shrinkage means, it is estimated, a money loss of $56,000,000. The tobacco crop will be greatly diminished. The other products of the island—hides, mahogany and cedar— are practically not to be had. Nothing is being done on the Stock Exchange and the Produce Exchange is lifeless. Mour, potatoes and the commonest necessaries of life cannot be sold on business principles; there is no money and Havana is like a tomb. No newspapers are printed. In government circles there has been much discussion about Gomez, and many persons in subordinate positions have believed that the rebel chieftain was dead. Explicit accounts [of how Gomez was buried have been related which the narrators believe. General Pando, commanding in Santa Clara province, has been blamed for allowing Gomez to get through that province. Gomez was in such a condition of physical exhaustion that ho was simply endeavoring to avoid any Spanish force and to proceed by easy stages to find a point in Puerto Principe province where he could rest, hoping to regain his health. Gomes is now not less than 250 miles from Havana and has been in comnixmication with Jose Maceo. SPANISH ATROCITIES. A State of Affairs to Shook the Whole Christian World. CLEVELAND, April 4.—The stories that have been told concerning the tortures inflicted by the Spaniards in Cuba are confirmed by P. H. Taylor, who has just arrived after a residence of three years in Havana. He said: "The worst has not been told. I have known of prisoners being strung up by the thumbs at Mora castle and left for days at a time to the mercy of the vicious flies, which were attracted in swarms by molasses smeared upon the victim's face and chest. Many more forms of torture are practiced upon the unfortunata rebels when taken. If they would allow some of the perse cuted wretches in the Cuban dungeons to testify, stories of fiendish torture could be unearthed which would shock the Christian world." MINNESOTA COURT REVERSED. Imt May Accept the froinlnntion—Deb. ideation of party Principles Is the Matter at first Moment Now—Would Appreciate tho indorsement of Utis State For Services Rendered. WASHINGTON, April 6,—Secretary. Jarlisle has written the following let* er to the chairman of the Kentucky Democratic state central committee on he subject of his candidacy for the ^residential nomination at the Chicago onveution: Your favor of March 80, in which you say in substance that many of my riends in Kentucky and elsewhere de- ire me to become a candidate before he approaching national Democratic convention for nomination for the office of president and requesting me to give 'some authoritative or definite expres- ion" upon the subject, was duly revived and has been maturely con- idered. Many communications upon he same subject and similar import lave been received from friends in dif- crent parts of the country, and, while ery grateful for these numerous ixprcsslons of Confidence and Esteem ipon tho part of my Democratic follow itizcms, I have not been able to reach he conclusion that the existing condi- ions require me to comply with their equests by authorizing them to announce me as a candidate for the presidential nomination. While I feel a profound interest in the welfare of my mrty, I am much more concerned ibout its declaration of principles than n its selection of candidates, becaitse, n my opinion, its failure or success at he election, as well as its capacity for useful service in the country in the uture, depend upon the position it akes or omits to take upon the public questions now engaging the attention of the people, and especially the ques- ions affecting the monetary system, of lie country and the, character and amount of taxation to be imposed upon our citizens. Its position upon these and other subjects having been agreed upon and clearly and distinctly announced, the convention ought to have no difficulty in selecting An Acceptable Candidate who will fairly represent its views; and, in order that its deliberations may be embarrassed as little as possible jy the contentions of rival aspirants and their friends, I think my duty to :he party will be best performed by declining to participate in a contest for :he nomination. Tho obligations assumed when I accepted my present official position require me to devote my entire time and attention to the public interests committed to rny ;harge, and I shall continue to discharge the duties imposed upon me to the best of my ability, and if, in ;he opinion of my fellow Democrats in Kentucky, my services entitle me to their commendation and approval, I would regard their indorsement of my public course as an ample reward for the little I have been able to accomplish in behalf of honest administration and a sound financial policy. LIPPITT RE-ELECTED. The Federal Supreme Court Decides State X.HWS Control Railroads. WASHINGTON, April a.—James J. Hill and his railroad consolidation scheme have received a backset in the United States supreme court. The court reversed the decision of the Minnesota court in the Pearsall case and upheld the statute of Minnesota prohibiting consolidation. The court says that it was competent for the state legislature to limit the charter and to "declare that the power it had conferred upon the Minneapolis and St. Cloud company (now the Great Northern) to consolidate its interest with other 61 similar corporations, should not be exercised so far as applicable to paralle competing lines, inasmuch as it is for the interest of . the people that there should be competition between paralie" railroads. Five Thousand Killed and Wounded. LONDON, April 6.—The Eome cor respondent of The Daily News says that it is believed there that the der vishes lost 5,000 dead, wounded anc prisoners in the engagement at Moun Moorani ou April 2 with an Italian native battalion, reinforced by Colone Stovani from Cassala. French Warships Steady to Sail TOULON, April 2. — Three French warships have been made ready to at a moment's notice, The Present Governor of Rhode Island Again Chosen. PROVIDENCE, R. I. April 2. —With only five districts in the state to hear from, Governor Lippitt is re-elected by a plurality of over 10,000. The total vote, with five missing districts, is as follows: Lippitt (Rep.), 25,115; Littlefield (Dem.), 15,638; Lippitt's plurality, 9,447. Last year Governor Lippitt carried the state by 10,721 and his plurality this year will be about the same. TWO ROUTES POSSIBLE. Report of tho Government Engineer on the Mississippi-Superior Canal. WASHINGTON, April 8.— The secretary of war sent to the house the report of a survey of a canal connecting Lake Superior with the Mississippi. The cost of such a canal, the report says, will range from $7,050,000 to $30,000,000 according to the different routes and the size proposed. It was found advisable to survey two routes, via Allouez bay and Brule and St. Croix rivers, and via St. Louis, East Savanna and Prairie rivers and Sandy lake. The cost of a barge canal 89 feet wide at water surface, 59 feet wide at bottom and 7 feet deep, along the line via Aliened bay is estimated to be $7,050,000, exclusive of cost of compensation for the vested rights of logging" interests, and a canal of similar dimensions on the other route at $10,575,510. He says a steamboat canal 100 feet wide at bottom, 121 feet wide at surface and 7 feet deep, along the latter route, is esti mated to cost $18,015,112. If the final objective point for the waterway be the Mississippi river near St. Paul, Major Sears adds, it would necessitate the improvement of that river from Sandy lake to a point below St. Anthony Falls. The cost of such a waterway, having a minimum depth of seven feet from Lake Superior to the Mississippi below St. Paul via the St. Louis river, Sandy lake and the Upper Mississippi river will cos* at least $19,000,000 for barges, and for steamboats, if practicable at all, $30,000,000. Assuming the total cost to be inline diately available, the report says, it would take four years to complete the first named route and 10 years the other. The route via Allouez bay is thought to be the most feasible. E ght Thousand Massacred at Orfah. LONDON, April G.—The Vienna correspondent of The Times says: The Vaterland publishes a letter from the superior of the Catholic mission station at Orfah declaring that 8,000 Armenians have been massacred there to Have a Curfew Ordinance. OMAHA, April a.— The city council by a vote of 18. to 4, has passed the curfew ordinance over the mayor's veto, and the law will go into effect at once. cojrsito is mm, * Mottdfly, Afnrclt 80.

'la!; Was tho Trouble V»*lth the Recent Conference at Winnipeg. OTTAWA, April 3.—The text of the proceedings at the conference between ;he Dominion and Manitoba government commissioners, which closed without result at Winnipeg, have been made public. The official statement shows that the Dominion government made a proposition to Manitoba that ;he province should adopt the Nova Scotia or New Brunswick system, under which such schools in a modified form are retained. Tho Manitoba government replied, declining to accept ;he offer, but proposed to entirely secularize the schools, offering to set apart a half hour, between 3:30 and 4 p. m., each day for Religious Exercises and Teaching, such exercises to be conducted by any Christian clergymen whose charge included any portion of the school district,' or by a person not a clergyman but authorized by the latter and acceptable to a majority of the school trustees. No pupils should be required to attend the religious exercises if the parents objected, and such pupils would be dismissed at 3:30. This proposition the Dominion government, through its commissioners, refused to accept and the conference closed. HARRISON-DIMMICK. Weddingr of tho Ex-President Quietly Celebrated. NEW YORK, April 6.—The wedding of ex-President Harrison to Mrs. Mary Lord Diinmick was a very quiet affair Less than half a hundred guests being MRS. DIMMICK. GEN. HARRISON. present. The hour of the wedding was not made public and the guests were notified only a few hours previous to tho performance of the ceremony.

The wedding gown of the bride was of gray silk faile, and was trimmed with old Honiton lace, an heirloom of the Lord family. LATEST MAEKET REPOKT, Minneapolis Grain. MINNEAPOLIS, April 6, 1896.
