London, Dec. 28. The sullen weather
sleet and dampness, seems to have cast
a gloom over politics in general, al
though the Venezuelan question, chiefly
from its financial and commercial stand
points, has been uppermost in the pub
lie mind. The tone of the press and
and general public here, is now striking
ly conciliatory and everything possible
ia being done to avoid a friction which
might result in further unpleasant
nees. , " ' .' T
Although the attitude of the people in
authority and those not in authority
here is peaceful, the possibilities which
further time may bring are not by any
means overlooked. This is shown by
the stress laid by the St. James Gazette

that at a meeting of influential residents

interior of British Guiana.
A sign of interest taken here in Amer
ican military matters is found in the
fact that the Army and Navv Gazettee
today published short biographical
shetches of all the American generals.

Management of the Reseolng Tng Asks
8160,000 for Its Services- -
Poet Townsend, Dec. 28. Just as the
Strathnevis was leaving Port Townsend
the United States marshal arrived from
Seattle and libeled the vessel in behalf
of the management of the rescuing
steamer Mineola, of the corporation cdn
trolled by the Southern Pacific Railroad
Company. The libel was issued out of
the district court of Seattle and is said
to be $150,000. An important point in
this matter is now under discussion be
tween interested parties relative to the
the disposition of salvage when recov
ered.- The Canadian Pacific Steamship
Company wants a slice of the salvage
and will ask for the modest sum of $250,

Washington, Dec. 29. An order has

and will start on her long voyage across
the Pacific, in a day or two. The Petrel
will not await her arrival, but will start
for home as soon as she can be prepared
for the trip. It is the evident policy of
the administration to maintain-a strong
fleet on the Asiatic station until the dis
appearance of all signs of further trouble
among the countries of the' Orient.

New Yoek, Dec. 29. The police re

forts to prevent violations of the excise
laws. As has been the case on all " Sun
days since the crusade against. Sunday

the doors, while detectives in citizens'
clothes were active in seeking opportu
nities to gain entrance to saloons where

said today by an experienced police Ser
geant that the saloonkeepers were taking
the changed order oroffairs as a matter
of course now, and that only a very few
of them, and those of the cheapest class.
are making any attempt to violate the
law, and that Sonday liquor-selling, he
said, is no longer profitable.

Poetland, Or. Dec. 30. A ' frightful
accident occurred this moaning in the
Dekum building, on Third and Wash
ington streets. .
Frank Baker, a janitor, ajed about 26
years, was engaged in cleaning the out
side pf the windows leading into the
court on the fifth floor, when he lost
his equilibrium and fell a distance of
about 80 feet into Lipman, Wolfe & Co.'s
The poor fellow's coming was heralded
by the smashing of Bkyiigbt glass during
bis terrible descent, and for a inonent or
two almost created a panic among the
lady clerks in fhn establishment, who
imagined the shivering of glass to be
caused by an earthquake.
The incipient panic, though , changed
into horror, when Baker landed, hna
foremost, on a stool in front of a cou
try, behind which several lady clerl
were standing. The velocitv of the f;
was so great that when Baker's he
struck the stool, the plush-covered sei
was broken from its screw fastenin

due only to some wire netting coven

When Baker landed on the floor of

army of clerks were near tho prost
