Army for Himself.
ALL IS QUIET IN NICARAGUA
Motzalto Indians Will Abandon Their
Claim to Independence and Will
Become Nicaraguans. '
England I Jealous.
Shanghai Nov. 30. England ia evi
rlentlv -rirerjarine a coud de main, with
a view to protecting her interests in
China. There can be no doubt that she
resents the manner in which she is be
ing excluded from a discussion of the
possible terms of settlement between the
two belligerents, and she has arranged
"a naval demonstration at Chusat on De.
cember 1st. The Alacrity, the Pigmy
and the Red Pole have left here with
sealed orders. They go to join Admiral
Freemantle'8 flagship Centurion and
other war vessels under his command.
This is being done as a measure of pre
caution, lest the Japanese should carry
the war into Southern China, now that
winter is arriving anil the northern ap
proaches to the empire .will become ice
bound and difficult. ,
A dispatch from Shanghai says great
excitement prevails in naval circles
there in consequence of the departure of
the British ship from that port under
sealed orders. The presence of three
British cruisers opposite the eBtuary
Bien Tang Kiang is coDBidered to 6how
that Great Britain has decided more
than to forestall her rivals in the East
and obtain a voice in the settlement be
tween Japan and China. The dispatch
adds fears are increasing that Li Hung
Chang will place himself at the head
of an army which he has created for his
. own purposes. Troops are. reported to
. he arriving from different parts of the
f. country to serve under Li Hung Chang.
Tbe Football Shooting: Scrape.- -
San Feancisco, Nov. 30. "Brick"
"Whitehouse, the young man who was
shot by young'Alexander IOughborough
early this morning during a drunken row
in a saloon where a crowd of college boys
had congregated, will probably recover.
The wound in the abdomen is not con
sidered as dangerous as at first supposed.
Whitehouse insists there had been no
trouble between Loughborough and him
self, and that he was standing some
distance away when Loughborough
whipped out his revolver and began
firing into the crowd. It is- believed
' now that young Max Eosenfeld, who
was slightly wounded in the hip, was
the object of the attack. Loughborough
is still in jail. All the young men are of
wealthy and influential families, and it
is said if Whitehouse recovers Loughbor
ough will not be punished.
Pott Arthur Easily Taken.
Shanghai, Nov.. SO. The Mercury
says that British and other naval officers
who visited Port Arthur assert that it
must have been taken without much
. difficulty, as only the eastern forts re
sisted. No Japanese except the gunners
fired a shot. The whole place was in-,
tact. The officers confirm the report
that the Japanese commander ordered
his men to give ' no quarter, since in
marching from Talien-Wan he found
eleven bodies of Japanese soldiers hor
. ribly mutilated.
England to Nicaragua. .
London, Nov. 30. It is learned Great
Britain has informed" Nicaragua she
could not recognize certain decrees re
garding land registration and other mat
ters which Great Britain holds without
i, violating the treaty itn Nicaragua.
The statement that Great Britain re
fused to recognize' the Nicaraguan gov
ernment at Bluefields is positively de
nied. The question was not one of sov
ereignty of Nicaragua over the Mosquito
. coast, which Great Britain bad already
, acknowledged in the above, mentioned
, Citizens of Nicaragua.
Washington, Nov. 30. Dr. Guzman,
Nicarguan minister, has received a ca

vention of the Mosquito Indians at Blue
fields unanimously agreed to. abandon

A New Chilian Cabinet.
Valparaiso, Nov. 30, It is now said
that a cabinet will be formed by. Satur
day at the latest; but its life will not be
long, it is feared. One or two of its
members will be candidates for the preg
idency. - - . - '
The London hitch in the sale of the
warships Esmeralda has been settled,
but now another one has arisen about
where she will change her Chilian flag
for that of China.
Why England Changed.'
Washington, Nov. 36. The suddenly
modified attitude of Great Britain to
ward Nicaragua is attributable, in the
opinion of naval officers, solely to the
positive determination of the TJnited
States to maintain its announced prin
ciples through a mobilization of war
ships, if necessary, rather than by re
course to the slow and unsatisfactory
methods of diplomacy hitherto em
ployed. . - -'
Yellow Fever in Rio Janeiro. -

correspondent in ' Rio Janeiro, Brazil,

Latest U. S. Gov't Report
The Mystery of Thunder.
Thunder, as far as its consideration
by intelligent human being's is con
cerned, is amonjr the oldest of . the
natural phenomena, and .'yet it is the
least understood: According' to one
authority on such subjects. M. Him, it
is caused by the separated columns of
air-rushing- tog-ether after being- separ
ated by, the electro flash, the main re
port being- the actual contact of such
divided sections of atmosphere. An
Ohio scientist has suggested something
entirely different. He says: "Is it not
possible that the . 'crackling-' of thun
der, one of the stock puzzlers for cen
turies, is really caused by the conver
sion of gases into water by the ' action
of the electric flash or blaze? The fact
that each sharp peal of thunder is fol
lowed by a suddenly increased down
pour of rain goes to prove that something-
has caused the rapid conversion
of gases or vapor into water."
It is a curious fact that a man (or
any other animate or inanimate object)
weig-hs less when the barometer is low,
notwithstanding- that the atmospheric
pressure is much greater upon his body
when the same instrument marks
"high." It is estimated that the pres
sure on an ordinary-sized man is fifteen
tons, and that a fall in ' the column of
mercury from thirty-one to twenty
nine adds about one ton to his load.
SlOO Seward, SIOO.
The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least one
dreaded disease that science has been
able to cure in all its stage's and that is
Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the
only positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a con
stitutional disease, requires a constitu
tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is taken internally, acting directly upon
the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the founda
tion of the disease, and giving the pa
tient strength by building up the consti
tution and assisting- nature to do its
work. The proprietors have -so much
faith in its cultivative powers, that they
offer ne Hundred Dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for list of
