WAR SAID TO
TliB British GoYernient Announces tLe
Situation is Ameliorating.
Implication that the Withdrawal of the
Fashoda Expedition Has Been
Agreed to by France, After Which
More Negotiations Will Be Entered
Upon for Final Adjustment of All
the Points at Issue.
New York, Nov. 3. The London cor
respondent of the Evening Post cables
that a general and satisfactory agree
ment has been effected between Great
Britain and France on the Faahoda
Loxdox, Nov. 3. An official note 18
eued this evening says :
"There is good reason to hope that
the political situation is ameliorating.
It can be confidentially stated that when
the cause of irritation which unfortu
nately recently existed between France
and Great Britain on the Upper Nile is
removed, which is expected soon to be
the case, the door will be again open for
the resumption of those friendly nego
tiation which have characterized the
normal state of the relations between
the two countries."
Coal For British Warships.
Philadelphia, Nov. 3. A morning
paper publishes the following : The pro
bability of war between England and
France received a fresh impetus here
yesterday by the action of England,
which purchased a large amount of
American coal for immediate delivery
at her West Indian naval station. In
response to hurried cablegrams from
London, ship brokers engaged in the
West Indian trade spent the greater part
of yesterday in searching for tonnage
suitable to transport the coal from Phila
delphia and Newport News to points
where it will be more convenient for the
English war craft to fill the bunkers.
The first shipments are to be sent to
Kingston, to be followed by vessels for
Bermuda, St. Lucia and Demerara,
which are the principal ports in the
West Indies subject to Great Britain.
It was reported yesterday that two Brit
ish warships had been ordered here to
undergo slight repairs, which, nnder or
dinary circumstances, would have been
made either at Halifax or the Bermuda
Peace at Any Price.
New Yokk, Nov. 3. A dispatch to the
Herald from Paris says : .
France is regarding England with anx
ious eyes. Everything indicates the
warlike spirit prevailing across the
channel. All the journals record the
British naval preparations with pesai
mistic comments. Nobody here desires
war. In the first place, Fashoda is not
worth it. In the second, France is not
ready. If force is resorted to it will be
England that insists upon it.
BIG RAILROAD DEAL
Negotiations for ale of Ilwaco Road
Astoria, Nov. 2. It was reported here
this afternoon that negotiations are
progress between the Astoria & Colui
bia River railroad company and the
Ilwaco Railroad & Navigation com
pany. It is Baia tne Astoria company
will absorb the Ilwace company, and
that boats to Ilwaco and North beach
will rnn from Flavel, making close con
nections with the traius to and from
Portland. This will permit summer
visitors to reach North beach in six
hours, without experiencing the delay
that has been tbe rule in the past. The
scheme includes the improvement of the
terminal facilities at Ilwaco, and the
road from there to Sealiind. This will
give the Astoria & Columbia River road
a practical monopoly of all tbe summer
travel to the beaches on both sides of
IS IT RELIEF?
THE COMMON TROUBLE, ACID DYS
PEPSIA OR SOCK STOMACH.
Now Recognized as a Cause of Serious
Acid Dyspepsia, commonly called
heart burn or sour stomach, is a form of
indigestion resulting from fermentation
of the food. The stomach being too
weak to promptly digest it, the food re
mains until fermentation begins filling
the stomach with gas and a bitter, sour,
burning taste in tbe mouth is often pres
ent. The conditions soon becomes
chronic and being an every day occur
rence is given but little attention. Be
cause dyspepsia is not immediately fatal
many people do nothing for the trouble.
Within a recent period a remedy has
been discovered prepared solely to cure
dyspepsia and stomach troubles. It is
known as Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
and is now becoming rapidly used and
prescribed as a radical cure for every
form of dyspepsia.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been
placed before the public and are sold
by druggists everywhere at 50 cents per
package. It is prepared by the Stuart
Chemical Co., Marshall, Mich., and
while it promptly and effectually re
etdres a vigorous digestion, at the same
time is perfectly harmless and will not
injure the most delicate stomach, bnt on
the contrary by giving perfect digestion
strengthens the stomach, improves the
appetite and makes lite worth living.

A PROTEST IS
TO BE ENTERED
Maintenance of a Status Qno of Canal
Question to Be Forced If Possible.
ACTION ON IT
Consul Donaldson Instructed to Bring
Nicaragua's President to Time
Objection to Granting Franchise to
any Private Corporation.
New York, Nov. 3. A dispatch to the
Herald from Washington says : Action
has been taken by the administration
looking to the maintenance of the statue
quo with respect to the concession ot the
Maritime Canal Company for the con
struction of the Nicaragnan canal.
Secretary Hay has cabled instructions
to Minister Merry, under which, through
Consul Donaldson, at Managua, remon
strances will be lodged with President
Zelaya against the concession bis govern
ment has awarded to Messrs Eyre &
Cragin, representing an American syndi
cate, for the construction of the - canal
upon the expiration of the contract held
by the Maritime Company. The presi
dent and members of his cabinet are of
the opinion that the new syndicate has
not entered into the agreement with
the Nicaraguan government to build the
canal, but to make a deal with the
Maritime Canal Company, under which
the syndicate will receive a certain sum
for its rights.
So far aB the administration is con
cerned, its objection to a transfer of-the
concession Jies in the bad effect it will
have upon congress, which would hesi
tate to vote the government aid so neces
sary to the construction of tbe canal.
"Private enterprise will never build
that great waterway," said an official
last night. "A government will have to
build it, and that government will be
the United States. So far as the' ad
ministration is concerned, it ia not a
question of what company has a con
tract, but.the. president is pledged to the
construction of tbe canal. He believes
it to be a necessity, and he therefore de
sires that the status quo be maintained,
in order that when the subject is dis
cussed by congress no unnecessary com
plications may exist which conld be used
to the disadvantage of tbe proposition
for the government to build the canal."
The authorities are satisfied at Presi
dent Zelay's announcement .that the
concession of tbe Maritime Canal Com
pany will not expire until October 19,
1899, and it is intended that every effort
shall be directed to secure the passage
by congress of one of the measures pro
viding for government aid in the con
etruction of tbe waterway.
Those Who Have Served Three Years
May Remain in Cuba If They
Choose to Do So.
New York, Nov. 3. A dispatch to tbe
Herald from Havana says : The Spanish
government has decided on the terms
nnder which the soldiers desirous of
staying in Cuba will be allowed to re
main. If they have served three years
in full they will be given their discharge
and paid a small part of their salary,
distributed pro rata, receiving notes for
the balance. Those soldiers who have
served less than three will be taken to
Spain. ' "

to the orden pubhcos also, and it is be'
