Washington. May 1. From the Brit
ish atinidpolrrt, the acceptance of' the
compromise and immediate evaouatiun
of Corlrrto. establishes the good faith
of Great Britain In her dedairatlon tliat
there was no purpose of occupying
the territory. From the flnrt the Brit
ish authorities have assured Ambassa

viised Secretory Gresham, that there
was no Tjunxwe of aflrgressCon. or of
seourlnsr a foothold Hn Nicaragua, The
only punpose, the Earl of Klmberly
has said, was to collect iroe aeoi Dy
such force as Was necessary and then
depart Nloanagua, nocwirhsbanding
these asaurt&ncee, has maintained that
Hhe collection of the mid J 7.5W was
merely a covert means of occupying
her territory. This view has prev 1 e t
very widely tiere, even in some official'
quarters, although the pollv ot Mj
government has been to accept In good
faith, Great Britain's representations.
Washington. May 1. Officials express
fear tihat there may be a hitch in the

possibility of an entire failure of the
agreement foaa not been passed. This
view, based upon the' slrn1flcart fact
that no confirmation of Great Britain's

Seven People Killed and Many In
Wichita. Ktoun.. May 1. 'A special to
the Kagle says a fatal cyclone passed
near Halstead, thirty miles north of
here, at 5 o clock this evening, and
several were killed.
The cyclone devastated a rtrlp of
country several hundred yards wide
and at least 16 miles in length, killing
seven persons outright and seriously
Injuring several others, while many
have receivd aldgiht Injuries. It first
struok the house of Mrs. Fry, a widow
who lives nine miles south of Halsted,
completely destroying tt, but wiry
sllgihcly Injuring Mrs. Frv. . It next
ploked up the house of John Shultz
ana scattereo: it m every direction.
The fine two-tory house of Joseph
Wler was entirely nwnpt away, kl'llng
Mrs. Wler, Grace Weir, aged 11. Her
man Weir, aged 6, and the five-weeks-old
baby. Mr. Weir left Uie- house,
and when the cyclone struck was about
60 yards away and olung to a tree. He
received Injuries which may prove fa
tal. .Joseph Weir, Jr., and slater,
Maud, were the only ones in the fam
ily who took to the cellar, escaping
wiun bickiii uruiwH. i ne nexr nouse in
the paltih of the storm was that of
James Armstrong, which was com.
pletely wiped from the earth, and Mr.
Armstrong was killed. Mrs. Armstrong
was probably fatally Injured, and
Grandma Chaping, who was there sick
In tied, was killed.
About 100 yards from this house, a
large two-story residence of B. B. Friz
zel was picked up, as was also the
large two-story house of J. R. Frizzel
across 'the road, and botfh, together
with aiH outjbudkilnsB, were completely
swept away. Tihe families of both
Frlzzels escaped Injury.
Dead horses, cattle and hogs and
chickens are scattered all over the
wheat fleWs. The loss will probably
fall not less than (200,000, besides sev
en deaths and the Injured, two or three
of whom will protolLfly die.
It Will Have to Be Settled by Secre
tary Herbert.
Washington ,May 1. For the flrst
time In ftts history, the board of naval
bureau chiefs have come to actual
disagreement and so reported to Sec
retary Herbert, leaving him to deter
mine which side Is right. The dis
agreement grows out of the construc
tion of six new gunboats for which
plans were prepared. There are two
reports on the subjej, one signed by
four of tihe board, totally disapproving
of the plans, and one signed by two
membirs, vigorously upholding the
plans. The majority hold that the fit
ting of vessels with complete sail pow
er Is a mistake, as the experience of
the department with such vessels as
the Adams, shows that no steamer
fitted with sails can beat against ths
wind, and therefore sails would be al
most useless on the average condition.
The supporters of the plans say that
the vessels would be efficient, and
murih mors economical than boats
without sails.
