Herald from Washington buys: Edwin
II. Conner, Aiuuriean minister in China,
ia keeping tho Mate department folly ud-
vtgt'il iv mull nf i1tvilmiimiitu in Hir
situation. Hit! lateEt reportu are not of
a very encouraging nature, and indicate
tlnit the anti-foreign movement ia de
cidedly threading, being particularly
strong in the province of Slum Tune uud
As illustrating tho hostility of the
lliiipress Dowager to tlio development of
her empire, attention wub culled today
to u decree which she recently issued,
ilegrudlng live oflichtlB on the most
rliliculiiiifl charges. One, for instance,
was degraded because of his "un
fathomable heart," another because of
"his weed for money." The real reason
of their degradation was because of the
fear of the Kinpress Dowager and her
advisors that they wore prominent in
the reform movement.
The hostility of tho Empress Dowager
to the progress of her neople will surely
precipitate a crisis, it is said, in oflicial
and diplomatic circles, and it would not
lie surprising if tho troubles which tho
Ming government apparently does not
wish to euppresH Bliould be tho fore
runner of anarchy and general revolution.

It is certainly gratifying to tho public
to know of one concern in the land who

Nicaragua Has Canceled the Com
Washington, April 2G. The Nicara
guan government has" finally canceled
the concessions to the Maritime canal
company to construct a ship canal across
This decision is the result of proceed
ing8 covering a peiiod of nearly five
montliB. The original concession would
have expired October 5 last, but the
company applied for an extension of the
period. This waa refused by the Nicara-
guan government, avd then thecompany,
contending that It had been prevented
by circumstances beyond itecontro! from
carrying out its contract providing for a
settlement of differences between the
company and the Nicaraguan govern
ment by means of arbitration. The
Nicaraguai! government admitted the
obligation to arbitrate the matter and
appointed its arbitrators. Thecompany
was Invited to do likewise, but being
nominated that, in accordance with the
common lawa with nations, it must
name Ni.:araguans as arbitrators, it
failed to do so. On January 21 the Nica
raguan fiscal solicitor appeared before
the superior court and asked for a judg
ment against the company by default.
Since that date the matter has been held
under consideration, and the United
Stttes minister toNiiaragua, Mr. Merry,
has been at Nanagua, seeking to effect
a just settlement of the issue. Informa
tion has just reached here that, the
courts having decided against the com
pany's claims, the Nicaraguan govern
ment has refused to extend the period
of time allowed for the construction of
the Nicaraguan canal by the Maritime
Canal Company, and haB vacated its

London, April 2". The Bloemfontein
correspondent of tho Standard, tele
General Ian Hamilton, with mounted
infantry, naval guns and a howitzer bat
tery, advanced from the water works in
the direction of Thabanchu. A large
force of infantry supported him. He
met witli no opposition, and the
mounted infantry occupied a position
dominating the Ladybrand district."
The Bloemfontein correspondent of
the Daily Telegraph, under Wednesday's
date, says :
"Our mounted infantry entered the
high mountain plateau of Thabanchu
today almost without opposition. As
Thabanchu is a natural fortrese, this
must mean that the Boers have practic
ally thrown up the sponge in this section
of the country. If the force presses on
to Ladybrand, tho whole country south
of that point and in line with Bloem
fontein will be completely in our hands.
"One difilculty is that many of the
Boers forming commandos, immediately
on finding themselves beaten, retreat to
their farms and resume the roles of
peaceful citizens, hiding their rifles."
l'ttvor Emigration of Indians.
Washington, April 20. Tho House
committee on Indian affaire today direct
a favorable report on the bill allowing
Indians in the Indian Territory to emi
grate to Mexico, the emigration to be
under the direction of the secretary of
the interior, and in bauds of 300. Mexico
gives the Indians an opportunity to re
turn to their tribal relations and nomadic
habits, aud they prefer this to the re
strictions now imposed upon tliem, and
also as a means of avoiding the spread
of tuberculosis and other diaeaaea which
have decimated them of late.
