Ni'w Yobk, May 24. A special to the
World from San Jose, Costa Eica, says :'
Nicaragua has been provoking this
country so persistently "that war seems
inevitable. The government here sap
posed the relations between the two
states were friendly until Nicaragua sud-
. denly stopped all communication. ,r She
awent so far as to take away the tele
graph office at the frontier, thereby vio
lating a treaty. This government sent
several telegrams to the Nicaraguan
government, bat the latter refused to an
swer. When Great Britain's ultimatum
. was received by Nicaragua. Costa Eica
offered to assist in arranging matters
peacefully. : Nicaragua did not deign to
even return a polite word of thanks.
President Inglesias is getting ready to
resist an invasion trom Nicaragua, but
the army will not be called out until
circumstances force it. Only a few men
have been sent to watch the border.
.Nicaragua, it is reported here, has
f .several hundred men under-arms ready
,for an attack.' The cabinet ministers
here wish no war, but if it must come
they claim to have better soldiers and to
be able to whip Nicaragua. ; ;
77gi fluctuated between 74 and 78c,
and when very bad crop reports came
advanced to 79c, and eased off to 78c.
The market later turned up to 79c,
then for a long time it wobbled lazily
between 78c and 79c. . The volume of
trading was very much reduced in com
parison ..with the business of. the past
few days. Corn was weak, owing to the
selling of about 1,000,000 - bushels by
Baldwin & Farnum. The market turned
weak, and at "the close July sold from
79c to 77e. There 'was no news of im
portance, but there was a general re
sumption selling and the market got no
support. . . The market continued to
break-during the last fifteen minutes,
July going to 76Jc.

New Yonk, May 24. Wheat transac
tions up to noon today were just 5,230,-
000 bushels, or' about 13,000,000 less than
they were yesterday morning: Prices
danced about in a lively way.; July

parts of the pit, dropped ' to 80c, shot
up to 81c, on fresh outside buying, and
then lost half a cent. ' .
Tbt Gontdi Claim They 1 Unjustly
Nkw York, May 24. Some of the tes
' timony taken by W. L. Cannon, jr., ref
eree in the certiorari proceedings in
" which the estate of 'Jay Gould and Jay
..Gould's children resist paying personal
taxes ' here on the ground cf non-resi
dence, is interesting. The commissioner
of taxes and assessments put $10,000,000
valuation upon the personality of the
estate for taxation in 1894, and assessed
the personal property of George J. Gould
at $400,000. and put an assessment . of
$100,000 each upon the personal property
ot Howard, Edwin and Helen M. Gould
The Gould children, besides alleging
non-residence, complained that . there
was great injustice done them in the
making of the assessment, inasmuch as
other wealthy people and estate were
'taxed at a less rate. George Gould testi
fied that in 1893 no estate was taxed as
high as that of William H Vanderbilt,.
which was taxed on $8,000,000 valuation,
although the estate was supposed 'to be
worth $100,000,000, with ' the exception.
of - the assessment which was made
against his father's estate, which was
put at $10,000,000 He said Cornelius
and William K. Vanderbilt were each
taxed on a valuation of $200,000 of per
sonal property, which they, were said to
be worth $100,000,000. .Russell Sage
' had been assessed on a valuation of
. $500,000 that year, the Tilden estate on
$500,000, Andrew Carnegie otf $150,000
and C. P. Huntington, one of the wealth
iest railroad men in the country, on
' $150,000. . ' ' .

Chicago, May 24. The wheat market
opened excitedly and irregular today.
On the curb and open board early sales
were at 78 for July,' against 78 at the
close yesterday. Out of . the bedlam of
the pit at the opening of the regular
board came the figures 78, 79 for July
Early news was mostly 6i a bearish char
acter, but numerous crop . damage re
ports were received later. Brokers saw
the-dangers of such a runaway market
. as that of yesterday, and were advising
: : their customers to go slow. As a conse
quence, early trading brought out many
stop-loss orders. July ' soon dropped to
WANT THE LAWS CHANGED.
Bigamy in the United States by Cana-
dlaaa Unpunishable In Canada.
Quebxc, May 24. Bigamy in . the
United States by Canadian citizens 'is
on4 of the subjects to be grappled with
next week at Toronto by . the National
Council of Women of Canada under the
presidency of its founder, the Countess
of Aberdeen. It has lately been decided
that, a married person who is a British'
subject resident, in Canada, and there
goes through a form of . marriage with
another person cannot in: Canada be
convicted of bigamy. This is the case
even when no divorce has been obtained-
in the United States. To lawyers it
seems clear enough that bigamy in the
United States is not an offense against
Canadian laws, and ' therefore it is not
unreasonabfe to expect that there should
not be any machinery for convicting the
offender in Canada.
But the Counjtess of Aberdeen and the
ladies affiliated with her upon the execu
tive committee of the National Council
of Women of Canada are bound to have
such provision made if by any means
possible, and there have recently been
some very sad cases of wife desertion in
Canada and remarriage in the United
States, calculated to call out female
Sympathy in general. . - "

Senator Stewart, of Nevada, said :
"I want to see ex-Congressman Joseph
C. Sibley of Pennsylvania the next presi
dent of the United States, and I am ad
vocating nim as a. candidate. He is one
of the ablest men in the country, and I
do not know one who is more honest.
He is almost too big a man for the pres
idency. His mental calibre is too large
and his instincts too honorable for. the
The senator declined to discuss Sena
tor Carter's visit to ex-President Harri
son, ,. He said he knew of Mr. Carter's
talk, but had no comment to make.
When asked about Senator Cameron as
a possible candidate on a silver . ticket,
Mr. Stewrrt said -that. Cameron was a
geod man, but that personally he was
for Mr. Sibley.

Any one who has ever had an atack
of inflammatory rheumatism will rejoice
with Mr. J. A, Stumm, 220 Boyle
Heights, Los Angeles, over his fortunate
escape from a siege of that distressing
ailment. '. Mr. Stumm is foreman of
Merrian's confectionery - establishment.
Some months ago, on leaving the heated
work room to run across the street on an
errand, he was caught out in the rain.
The result was that when ready to go
home that night he was unable to walk,
owing to inflammatory rheumatism. ' He
was'" taken home, and on. arrival was
placed in front , of a good fire and
thoroughly rubbed with Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. During the evening and
night he was repeatedly bathed with this
liniment, and by morning was relieved
o all rheumatic pains. He now takes
especial pleasure in praising Chamber-
Iain's Pain Balm, and always keeps a
bottle of it in the house. For sale by
