Oil as Fuel Here to Stay.
New York, Dec. 19, It Is the opin

as fuel for locomotives has come to
stay, at least In certain parts of the
country where its use has been a suc
cess in that regard, both In results on
engines and the economy obtained in
cost of fuel. Within a short time the
Southern Pacific will have a complete
system of stations for supplying the
fluid to engines, huge tanks having
been built for the double purpose of
storage and feeding. They occupy
points about 100 miles apart on the
average, except in the desert and
some other places where circum
stances permit of 160 miles.

Washington, Dec. 19. It Is an
nounced at the state department this
morning that answers have been re

cerning the proposal of arbitration
made by President Castro through
Minister Bowen. The answers while
admitting the correctness of tho prin

as satisfactory on account of the con
The answer of Great Britain was
most favorable. Germany Interposes
so many conditions as to make her
answer anything but n consent to ar
bitration. Italy, in as much as she
is the youngest member of the alli
ance. Is willing to abide by the dis
positions of the other two nations.
Even Great Britain's answer contains
a number of stipulations which would
require time for adjustment before an
arbitration could be entered Into.
The character of the objections to
immediate arbitration interposed by
Germany and Great Britain Is not
made public, further than that one
condition is that there must be some
guarantee that Venezuela will fulfill
the judgment of tho arbitrators. It
is seml-officlally learned that one of
the conditions laid down by Germany
Is Venezuela s apology for the arrests
of the German, consular officials and
the sacking of the consulate at Cara
cas. Secretary Hay Immediately took
the answer of the three powers to a
cabinet meeting, where It was dls
cussed. It was decided to make ef
forts to obtain Castro's acqulscence
in as many of tho conditions ns possi

matically suggested to Germany nnd
Great Britain that they recede from
the more onerous stipulations.

Santa Maria Still Active Business
Paralyzed Price of Necessities so
High That Few Can Buy Them.
Guatemala City, Guatemala, Dec. 19
It Is probably due to some govern
ment instructions that tho papers
hero have not said anything with ref
crence to tho eruption of the Santa
Maria volcano, which can bo consid
ered, because of Its magnltudo, as a
national calamity. Tho losses suffer
ed by German capital are not less
than fO, 500.000. consisting of houses
nnd machinery destroyed, and the de
struction of tho present coffee crop.
If the total destruction of many othor
properties belonging to other foreign
ers, as well ns to natives, is added to
this amount, the actual losses ascend
to a fantistlc sum.
The volcano Is still In activity and
a new eruption Is feared at any time.
Suffering Is Indescribable, for, be
sides tho loss of coffee, which Is es
timated at about 300,000 quintals, tho
corn and wheat fields aro ruined.
Owing to the unusually high rato
of exchange, business is entirely par
alyzed, for nil Imported articles have
reached such prices that very few
persons can afford to buy thoin, and
most of tho merchants sell Just
enough to cover their expenses.
The worst part of tho present bad
condition Is that no one knows how
or when it will chnngo, and It Is al
most unendurable lust now. Articles
of first necessity havo reached Inac
cesBablc prices, and the poor class of
people Is suffering therefrom.
BILL TO STOP KISSING.
Themselves to Blame.
After Indulging In ruinous competl

ed a trust for the purpose of regulat

bine lias obligated himself to charge
the rate agreed upon by the trust. The
Swiss gentlemen have solved the prob
lent. Kmploylog printers who are
continually complaining of the low
prices they receive for their work
have only themselves to blame. Good
work will command good prices.
