TENDER OF MEDIATION
Trend of President's Note
THE TOXE OF IT WAS VERY MILD
The Government' Service Uttered to
Knii the War.
New Yokk, Oct. 15. The Heral pub
lishes the following, based on high au
thority, which it claims is substantially
theinstrnctiona issued by President Mc
Kinley to Minister Woodford to be pre
sented to the Spanish queen :
None but the most kindly relations
exist between the present administra
tion and Spain, and as far as 'lies in the
power of the administration they will
continue. The belligerency resolution
which passed the senate at the last ses
sion of congress merely bore evidence of
the tremendious popular feeling
throughout the country in favor of Cu
ba. The house, to be ture, voted down
the resolution passed by the senate; but
this was with a view to postponing
the issue for the moment that could be
construed as hostile to Spain.
The house, like the senate, is strongly
ing sympathy with Cuba. This feeling
of sympathy throughout the United
States will undoubtedly take shnpe as
soon as congress convenes, and it is
necessary for the president to com
municate to congress such recommen
dations as he deems best to make in re
gard to Cuban affairs.
Under the circumstances, the govern
ment ot the United States tenders
its best offices to mediate between Spain
and Cuba, and it offers to mediate so
as to bring the war to an end on such
term 8 as will be honorable to both par
ties. This government expresses the
hope that Spain will reply by the end of
October, so as to give the president a
chance to report to congress by the time
The Herald also publishes the. follow
ing, which it claims details the real
circumstances which led to the downfall
of the old cabinet:
Nearly nil of the Spanish bonds had
been floated in France, and the recent
loans were pUced there, but the latest
applications for further loans bad not
been favorably responded to. The only
means, therefore, of raising money was
through the bank of Spain, through
which application was made at the rate
of 50,000,000 pesetas, or $12,000,000 a
month, in order to carry on the war with
Cuba and the Philippine islands. The
bank of Spain 'declined to make further
advances to the government several
months ago, and the cabinet thereupon
remoyed the governor of the bank. ' The
recently appointed governor of the bank
thereupon tried to force upon the bank
committe, or board of directors, the ap
plication of the government for addi
tional loans, but his efforts were a fail
ure. This was followed by the determina
tion of the cabinet to take steps to re
duce the interest rate on the govern
ment bonds of five to Bix per cent to
three and one-half and four percent
respectively. Immediately the cabinet
was deluged with protests. Some of the
objections came from persons high in
authority and in a position to dictate
terms to Spain.
The combined weight of conservatives
in Spain, whichembraced ae, indicated,
the bulk of the holders of Spanish bonds
whoBe interest would be cut in two, im
mediately answered this1 proposition
"I was troubled with an Eczema or
eruption on the hands for two years. I
spent quite a sum of money without get
ting a cure. Then I commenced using
Garland's Happy Thought Salve. I have
used Six or eight jare, and am cured. ; It
is a great 'medicine, and I carl tally rec
ommend it to anvone troubled with skin
disease." J. M. E. ATKINSON,

with the suggestion that it would be
better to stop all war expenses than to
adopt such a radical course. In fact,
many of the conservatives said it would
be better to gain anything in the way of
indemnity which Spain could obtain by
the sacrifice of sovereignty and accept
ing an offer to grant liberty to Cuba, if
it could be brought about in a way that
would not be dishonorable to Spain.
The queen yielded to this, and the re
sult was the resignation of the old cab
inet and the calling upon Sagasta to
form a new one.
McKenna for Promotion.
Washington, Oct. 15. It seems to be
generally conceded that Attorney-General
McKenna will succeed Justice
Field. McKenna is believed to have
been promised the place before he re
signed bis judicial position to step into
the cabinet. In this event it is prac
tically certain that California will not
lose a place in the cabinet, and that
McKenna will be succeeded by Judge
Waymire. If McKenna does not go on
the supreme bench, it ia thought that
Waymire will. It is known that the
president discuesed this matter with
Waymire when the latter was here last
spring, and Waymire expressed a pref
erence for the cabinet.
Judge Gofl' to Succeed McKenna.
New Yokk, Oct. 15. A special from
Washington says :
In the retirement of Justice Stephen
J. Field an opportunity is made for the
advancement of Attorney-General Mc
Kenna to the supreme bench, but the
vacancy will not cause a general reor
ganization in the president's official
family. Nathan Goff, of West Virginia,
who served in congress with Major
McKinley and who declined in February
last to leave the United States circuit
bench for the cabinet, has again'received
the offer of the position of attorney
general. It is believed he will accept.
Mr. Calhoun, who was commissioner
to Cuba, is next in President McKinley 's
mind for McKenna's place. It will be
remembered that Calhoun, after bis
report'on Cuba, declined the controller-
ship ot the treasury.
A Deadly Fend.
Ckksent Citv, Cal., Oct. 15. At
Chetco, in Curry county, Or., a feud
which bad manifested itself in small
quarrels for several months, has broken
out with fresh fury, and two men have
narrowly escaped with their lives. Chetco
is near the boundry line of Del Norte
county, California. Something like five
years ago an attempt was made to boom
the town, and the Coolidges and the
Van Pelts, residents of the town, dis
agreed over property rights. The boom
was a failure, but the family feud has
continued ever since. ...

At a meeting of citizens held to in

REBELS ACTIVE IN GUATEMALA.
Barrios Finds He Has Not Yet Crashed
New York, Oct. 15. A dispatch to
the Herald from San Jose, .Guatemala,
The outbreak in the eastern districts
which it was at first thought would be
speedily suppressed, proves to be of a
far more serious nature than the one
just put down in the West, beaded by
General Morales, Daniel Fun tea Barrios
and Manuel Sanchez, who was killed.
The other leaders, after their flight from
Quezultenango, went toward the Mexican
boundary, where it is reported they dis
banded their men. It is not known
what was done with the large quantity
of arms and munitions of war Hhey
carried with them. It is confidently
believed, however, by the rebel sym
pathizers, that the leaders will organize
their men and make a. fresh effort

A few weeks ago the editor was taken
with a very severe cold that caused him
to be in a most miserable condition. It
was undoubtedly a bad case of la grippe
and recognizing it as dangerous he took
immediate steps to bring about a speedy
cure. From the advertisement of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy and the many
good recommendations included therein,
we concluded to make a first trial of the
medicine. To say that it was satisfac
tory in its results, is putting it very
mildly, indeed. It acted like magic and
the result was a speedy and permanent
cure. We have-no hesitancy in recom
