The Alliance, affair, while important
and lrrttaiUng, is now a secondary mat
ter compared wfth the Nicaragua lnct
dent. avs a Washington letter. The
browbeating1 course of England toward
that little country and Its determina
tion ito secure $76,000 damages for an
alleged insult, Is regarded as of ex
ceeding seriousness. Nicaragua is com
idered In many ways under the pro
tection of the Unletd States, and the
domilmeering policy of England creates
anxiety nd irritation as well. It is
felt that In this matter vigorous action
Is demanded, and the attitude of the
present administration Is watched with
Interest. There 4 a curiosity to know
whether that Americanism which
cropped out In the Alllanca affair is
but a temporary thing, or whether the
, administration has taken a new breath
and proposes to astonish the United
fitaites by an aggressive American pol
icy. It to remembered that lit Is Eng-
alnd with Whom lit is dealing now anu
that the tendency has been to bow the
knee to that country. There is much
secrecy In regard to tlhls matter, and
equally great pretense as to intentions.
What is being done It is Impossible to
team accurately. The Venezuela boun
dary question is also watched with in
terest. In 'this case, also, England Is
the aggressor, endeavoring, in accord
ance wfth its. ttme-Jionored policy,
to eteail or secure by seemingly legal
means, all! the territory possible. Mr,
Cleveland toas his nan da full, and It
remains to b seen" how much force he
Xt baa been an open secret in Wash
uigton that tha resentment of the
friends of Ue ex-queen of the Hawaiian
Islands against Minister Thurston has
been a smouldering fire since that gen
tleman ventured upon exposing the ab
surdities of "Paramount" Blount's re
port. That it did not break out in lurid
flames ton before this la probably due
to the fact that congress, while in ses
sion, stood ready to turn upon it a
cold and disappointing stream of com
mon sense. As when "my policy" was
finally determined on, and Wiat other
absurd champion of royalty, Minister
Willis, was sent on his chlvalrlc errand
of succoring 1m silhouette monarch)
of th Pacific Ocean just at a time
when congress could not possibly Inter
vene, so Secretary Qretftvam choose
now a convenient' moment when no
Impertinent congress can rap the con
secrated knuckles or exercise Its pre
rogatives In a question which the own
er of those same knuckles solemnly
relegated to the "wider discretion" of
the legislative branch of the govern
ment. The insincerity of that step if
mw clearly demonstrated, since the
letter instructing 'Minister WBHs to de-
mand Minister Thurston's recall was
8 nt nearly two weeks before congress
adjourned, and yet knowledge of that
.fact was withheld from both senate

patients can tolerate it for a

the stomach nor derange the

Scott's Emulsion is as much
easier to digest than the plain
oil as milk is easier to digest
than butter. Besides, the fish
fat taste is taken out of the oil,
and it is almost palatable. The
