NEW YORK, Feb; 7A special to
the Herald irotn Washington says: A
member I the foreign relation com
mittee of the senate is authority for the
statement that views with reference to
the cession of the Danish West Indies
have been officialy exchanged between
the United sw ana ytnmiin.
gotiations ! are also' in, progress with
Ecuador for 'the cession of- Chatham
island, of the Galapagos group, to this
government . . . ,
By the ! acquisition of -these islands
and the possession of Puerto Rico and
the Hawaiian islands, the United State
will practically control the approacnes
to the proposed Nicaragua canal
There is authority for the statement
that Secretary Hay. before agreeing to
the provision prohibiting the establish
ment of fortifications at the terminal
of the canal, carefully considered the
possession of the United .States in the
immediate vicinity, and , that in
initiating negotiations with v Ecuador
for Chatham island and with Denmark
for the Danish West Indies, he was
actuated by a desire to secure sites for
naval stations which would effectually
control the approaches to the canal.'
No doubt is expressed that the Unit
ed State will be able to secure the
consent of both Denmark and Ecuador
to the acquisition of . the islands it
seeks, but it is understood this govern
ment is not hurrying the negotiations.
New York, Feb. 7. A special to the
Herald from Washington says: Dis
turbing events ira Venezuela, reported

patch of the gunboat Machias by Rear

port of Puerto Cabello. !
-According to the department's in
formation. General Hernandez has not
given up his struggle to gain the pres
idency of Venezuela. With a con
siderable following he is making pre
parations to renew the war with Gen
eral Castro, and it is expected i that a
conflict will occur soon. The Machias
will remain in Venezuelan waters until
foreign interests caji be protected by
the local government. - ?. j ;
The authorities have been informed
that a disturbing-condition of, affairs
also, exists in Santo Domingo. As
soon as the MachiX can be relieved
from duty in Venezuelan waters, she
will be ordered to proceed tu Santo
Domingo, j

the work of the clubs consisted in la
boring for the party success along such
lines and under such standard bearers
as were given us by the parry conven
tions ' Now, Mr. Gatch wants' the
clubs : to dictate the party policies and
incidentally the candidates, thus doing
away with the necessity for primaries
and conventions. !
In support of his theory and h?
hopes, Mr. Gatch pretends to think
"that a league meeting, being exempt
from the schemes of individuals, larger
in representation, and more directly
i'rom the people is better able to an
nounce the policy of our party than a
nominating convention." . ;
Mr. Gatch must have enjoyed hjs
and his audience must have al;:o'
chuckled with satisfaction. Clubs hi
ing "exenipt from the schemes of ihj
dividuals, is good; their being "direcjtr,
ly from the people" is another excel
lent bon mot. .
The fact of the matter is that tlie
manner of forming political clubs
makes them entirely unrepresentative
and places them absolutely in the hands
of a few men who have political jr
commercial axes to grind of sufficient
importance to warrant the expenditure
of time and money. Look at tlie

The followi
Salem barber, is taken from a! recent
issue of the Albany Herald:
"Charles G, L. Benson, the Broadal-bin-street
barber, left town Friday
night and has not been heard from
since. Benson came to .town Several
months ago and purchased the barber
shop back of Young's store. He repre
sented that 4ie had been married, but
was divorced. Shortly after coming to
town, be commenced to keep company
with Miss Erma Watts, and last "Satur
day night they were married. Friday
morning a woman came to town who
claims she is Benson's legal wife and.
had never secured a divorce. Benson
hired a buggy at the livery stable, and
as near as can be learned, drove f
Shedd. Friday ' night, and stopped at
that town until Saturday morning,
when he left for Independence, probably
crossing the river at Peoria. He was)
accompanied by Mrs. Watts and Mrs
Benson No. 2, : but the former f eturn
ed yesterday morningnd her daughter
came back .with the buggy late I'm the
afternoon. Benson evidently jieaded
for Portland, and as he has about $.V,
borrowed from his new mother-sin-law.
he will be able to keep moving, as there
seems to be no one particularly anxious
to head him off." , i
Benson spent a few months ,in Sa
lem about a year ago and ieftl Salem
very suddenly, leavinjc numerous con
fidential friends anxious for his j return.
By the prompt return by express of an
overcoat that . he had purloined. Ben
son escaped arrest and examination on
the charge of larceny. In this city,
he is known to have iiving a wife from
whom he is not divorced. News of
his marriage to an Albany girl naturally
created some surprise in this city. '
As the clouds of guilt and j sorro
are blotted out from the firmament of
a man's prospect the sun of his joy wiu
arise. South.
