I 1 he essential features of the entire story are dis* credited in diplomatic circles, Which believe the published report originated in the fact that the Bancroft's admis* sion to the Bosphorus is desired, and ( that Minister Terrell will use the influence he possesses with the porte to bring it about by peaceful methods, but will not persist if decided objection is made. So far as the United States a) one is concerned, European powers have no objection to the presence of the dispatch boat ill the Bosphorus, the objections arising solely from the fact that it might establish a precedent for like demands from other nations. SENSATION IN ENGLAND. 41 r ICdtt-iml Chirk UecluroR Against Kng- lnnd'H Claims in Yent/iK'lii. LONDON, Oct. 18.—A great sensation has been caused in the political world by the speech of Sir Edward Clark,, conservative member of parlimcnt, and and who was solicitor general in Lord Salisbury's previous ministry, in which he said, speaking of the Venezuelan question, that the decision of the American boundary conimissiou would be against England, not because it was a hostile commission, but because he believed no lionest and impartial arbitrator or commission could decide in favor of England's claims upon the evidence. Sir Edward's assertion is widely commented on in all the political circles and in the press. The Daily News says it supposes • Sir Edward Clark is attiicted with the terrible disease of inverted jingoism. "The panic stricken talk of the whipping Lord Salisbury is likely to pet from the new president," this paper continues, "is only calculated to re-animate the American jingoes and to make conciliation and compromise harder."

He predicted, moreover, the early agreement of the powers most interested.
