London, April 10. Regarding the re
port from New York that the British
sloop-of-war Wild Swan has joined the
Royal Arthur, the flagship'of the British
Pacific squadron, at Panama, prepara
tory to her expected departure for Cor
inth, Nicaragua, to enforce the ultima
tum of Great Britain demanding $75,000
indemnity for the expulsion from Nica
gua of Mr. Hatch, British consular
agent at Bluefields, it was stated at the
admiralty today, in reply to questions,
that no orders had been given the Wild
Swan or Royal Arthur, which would
warrant the statements made.
The Times today, in an editorial on
the situation, says: "If we are com
pelled to collect customs Nicaragua will
presumably have to pay the costs of col
lection in addition to the indemnity.
She will find it less troublesome and
- cheaper to settle with "as forthwith.
Her efforts to excite the jealously of
America have failed. Justice, with the
good sense of the Americans, has proved
too strong for the success of these char
acteristic maneuvers. Americans should
only hear our case and demands to ac
knowledge onr conduct was reasonable
and just, and to admit that our claims
were of such a character as they would
themselves have made under similar
circumstances. We have assured Amer
wana that we are not seeking fresh ter
ritory. Our object is to obtain an ade
quate apology for injury done and the
. payment of compensation which we be
lieve to be our due."
The Globe this afternoon, comment
ing on the same subject, remarks
"Llka other Central American republics
given to twisting the lion's tail, Nicara
gua hoped Washington would flare up in
behalf of the Monroe doctrine, but Presi
dent Cleveland, upon inquiring into the
matter discovered the quarrel did not
concern America. It would be intolera
Die were the Monroe . doctrine so
wrenched as to cover such international
outrages as that of which Nicaragua has
been guilty. Fortunately for the con
tinuance of friendly relations between
the two great nations there is far less
disposition than formerly in America
to take advantage of every opportunity
to hurl defiance at England. Sensible
Americans recognize that the 'Monroe
doctrine, though founded on excellent
principles, requires to be enforced with
prudence and discretion."
The New Silver Party.
Nkw York, April 10. A Washington
special says : Leaders of the new silver
party are said to be laying plans for an
attempted conversion of the labor ele
ments of the East to the free-silver doc
trine. They are credited with the opin
ion that the existing unrest end dissat
isfaction among the. laboring classes can
be utilized to excellent advantage in fur
thering their plans. The outlines of
their intentions, furnished today, con
tains the statement that they will charge
that much of the trouble of the laboring
classes is due to what they term con
tracted currency, and to the monopoly
of goldbugs. Socialistic classess will be
arrayed against the gold standard as be
. ming synonymous with capital and mo
nopoly. Wall street and the Roths
childs will be set up as the bugbear of
workingmen, and responsible for all
their ills, and free coinage of silver and
an en enlarged circulating medium will
be suggested as the only cure for exist
ing troubles. Hundreds of books and
pamphlets presenting the silver ques

tion are being circulated throughout the
country. Every time an eastern man
makes a declaration in iavor of free
coinage, the promoters of the new party
seize upon it eagerly and give it the
wildest circulation, On the other hand,
the assertion of Senator Sherman that
free coinage "would result in the most
tremendous financial panic this country
has ever known, and would paralyze
business and trade beyond anything
ever known by any nation in the world"
is booted at as - merely the raving of a
Armistice In the Orient Hearing an Ind.
Washington, April 10. The Japan-
China armistice closes in 10 days, so it is
anticipated by officials and diplomats
that the final terms of peace must be
near at band. It is stated, however, by
Coreans, that it is characteristic with
them not to meet an emergency until
the last day. . The case is cited in which
Japan gave Corea three months to ac
quiesce in certain conditions. There
was no response until the day before the
three months expired, when . Corean
officials appeared and stated - the subject
had been overlooked and more time was
desired, which request, however, was
not granted. It would not be surprising
to the officials if Li Hung Chang took
theill 10 days before yielding to all the
Reports that the indemnity will be
about 400.000,000 yen coincides with the
understanding here that ' $200,000,000
would be the amount of the payment.
The present rate of exchange on a silver
yen is' 47 cents, so that 400,000,000 silver
yen would be $188,000,000. . '
It is agreed by all hands, including
Japanese and Chinese officials, that the
independence of Corea will be one of the
terms of peace. This brings out the
curious fact that the United StateB is the
only power which haa hitherto recog
nized Corea as independent, and has re
ceived a diplomatic delegation from that
country. It is stated that some time ago
China addressed a private letter to all
foreign powers, in which it was argued
that Corea was 'independent in conduct
ing her internal affairs, but was a trib
utary of China so far as her dealings
with foreign powers were concerned. It
has never been disclosed what answer
the powers gave, but from the fact that
Corea has no diplomatic delegation out
side of the United States, it is concluded
that the European powers acquiesced in
the Chinese suggestion, and failed' to ac
cord to Corea complete independence of
China. It is understood that the United
States never made any formal reply to
China's contention, but the establish
ment of the Corean legation at Washing
ton was a tacit refusal to recognize her
authority over Corea, and a recognition
of the latter's independence. It is be
lieved that the peace agreement between
Japan and China will so. conspicuously
affirm Corea'a independence that the
little kingdom will extend- her treaty re
lations with the remainder of the world
and establish legations throughout
Europe as well as in the United States
Galley Blectea Speaker.
London, April 10. William Court
Galley, M. P. for Carlisle, the govern
ment candidate, was elected speaker of
the house ef commons today, in ' succes
sion to Sir Arthur Wellesley Peel, who
resigned Monday, by a narrow majority
of 11. The Parnellites voted against the
government. Mr. Gulley is a liberal,
who supports Gladstone's Insh policy.
The election was attended by exciting
scenes. Balfonr resented that a man so
absolutely unknown in a parliamentary
capacity as Mr. Gulley should be nomin
ated. Sir William Vernon Harcourt re
plied warmly, and Balfour again arose.
He was received with loud cries of
"spoken," from the McCarthyites, led by
Timothy Healy. This continued several
minutes, while Balfour stood unmoved
at his table. Amid great excitement
members vainly endeavored to induce
Healy to desist. Tflere were loud angry
cries of "Name," but the chair being
vacant, it was impossible to call him to
order. Ultimately, however, Balfour
was allowed to speak.
