It appears from Washington dls
patch that the official statement ol
the British government on the trade
between the United States and that
country for January and February has
reached Washington. It Is calculated
to cause consternation among the free
traders of the United States. More
convincing evidence against the new
tariff could not be asked by those who
apprehend evil results from It. The
falling off In our sales of agricultural
products to England during the months
of January and February of this year
are especially notable. The exports of
cattle alone show a decrease of over
1913,000 over the two months of last
year. The sales of American flour
were over 4300,000 less than In the two
months of the previous year. The sale
of American bacon decreased over
$300,000 In two months. The exports of
fr?sh beef fell off to the amount of
over $165,000. The sales of butter de
creased from $165,000 to $30,000 In round
rvumtoors. Our suit of salted fish fell
off over one-half In the two momths,
representing a loss of over $200,000,
while, on the other hand, England sold
us over $100,000 worth of fish, repre
senting a gain of SO per cent In her
commerce. Our sales of mares and
igeldlngs, wheat, hams, and lard
showed a Blight Increase, whille the ex.
ports of sheep furnished the only In
stance of a gratifying increase. If
England bought more of our feheep,
however, she evened up the deal by
elllng us $261,000 worth of 'English
wool In the two months, and over $2,

ed over $2,000,000 for the two months,
aiinougn we had the largest cotton
crop for many years. The sales of un
wrought copper fell off to the extenl
of $350,000. The sale of timber de
creased considerably over $600,000. Th
exporto of tallow fell off $175,000 to
$.",0,000 In round numbers, and the traf
fic In cheese decreased to the amount
of over $200,000. No lees appalling to
American manufactures are the figure
of the Increased imports from Eng
land Into the United tSatei for thosi
two months. In worsted goods we
bought over $3,400,000 worth, an In
crease of over $2,400,000, and In woolen
yarns and tissues we bought to the
extent of $923,000 against $384,000. Eng
land even managed to sell us $60,000
worth of whisky and $150,000 worth ot
tns-r and ale In those two months.

year. We fcouerht over $2,000,OJ0 of
cotton goods, an Increase of over $SO0,.
000. There was an Increase of over
$1,000,000 In the Imports of linen goods.
The Imports of carpets were more than
trebled, and very much larger quanti
ties of millinery and stationery came
over from England. Manufacturers of
ultks and silk mixed goods Increased In
volume, and even old Iron for reman,
uffu'ture came In to the extent of
about $5,000. A long Hat of Items repre
senting articles manufactured In this
country also shows an Increase ol

It 4s expressly stipulated and agreed
by Mr. Hammond, that when once com

uoiisly until the road is entirely tin
isherl. Never before has there been
BiKh an earnest of the construction
of the road as there Is at present, and
so far as the basing of plans for the
future Is concerned, the road may be
considered as positively assured. Th
difference between the present outlooV
and that of a former period when the
work was actually commenced, Is that
then the funds to complete the road
had to be obtained as the work pro
gressed, while now the money Is al
ready raised and available at this mo
ment. Mr. Hammond's contract alone
.vould be a positive guarantee that th
oad would be built, even If there was
not a dollar In sight to commence on

The administration has changed ltr

Nicaragua that their country should

the same time told them that If Great
Britain endeavors to enforce that de
mand, nothing will be done by us t
protect her unless Britain tries to ao
