tSrZCXU. TELZOBAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Washington, October27. Hon. Thomas
Byan. Minister to Mexico, has returned to
"Washington and will have further conter
ences with the State Department. "What
is Mexico's recent action in respect of put
ting a tariff on certain American exports?"
asked The Dispatch correspondent this
" 1CA decree has been issued, to take effect
the first ot the mouth, removing live stock
and fresh meats from the free list, and im
posing a heavy tariff. The tariff on fresh
meats will be 5 cents a pound, which is
practically prohibitory. The tariff on live
stock is scarcely less. There are no statis
tics showing the value of exports from the
United States into Mexico, but their volnme
is large, and to the best of my judgment,
the balance of trade has been Eeveral mill
ions in our favor.
TRADE THAT WE MIGHT HAVE.
"The result of removing live stock and
fresh meats from the free list will be inju
rious to the Mexican railroads. It is to be
regretted that no figures are available to
show our Mexican exports. The law pro
vides merely for collating figures of mari
time commerce, and is antiquated. It should
be amended by Congress at an early day.
"Mexico is a wonderful country, wonder
ful in people, climate, resources and possi
bilities. The United States pays out $100,
000,000 in cash annually for products which
Mexico could furnish ns, and take in ex
change the product of onr manufactories
and enterprises. I believe that even a lim
ited measure of reciprocity would, within
five years, develop a Mexican commerce of
5100,000,000 annually. It is to be hoped
that both nations will awake to the oppor
ADVANTAGES OF CLOSEE DELATIONS.
"Mexico wants machinery, agricultural
implements, cloths, tools, meats, live stock
everything we can furnish her, in fact.
The Mexicans are a wealthy people. "What
they want they have. The country raises
a re'venue of 530,000,000. Of this $20,000,000
is by a tariff on imports. Yet she would
be willing to sacrifice a part of this, un
doubtedly, to secure reciprocal relations
with the United States. She wants the ma
chinery of development.
"President Diaz is a clear-headed, intelli
gent and progressive statesman. He .holds
the Government with a firm hand, and al
lows nothing in the shape of plots against
the Republic to rise and interfere with the
nation's destiny of greatness. Prom a land
of revolutions Mexico has become
A LAND OP PEACE AND STABILITY.
"She will never have another revolution.
Diaz and the railroads have rendered it im
possible. Mexico's statesmen and diplo
matists are men of great intelligence, wide
experience and high motives. Mr. Mariscal,
Secretary of State, is thoroughly posted on
American affairs and our system of govern
ment. I do not believe that there is a city
in America in which life and property are
morejeenre by day or night than in the

"Baflroads are being projected in every

'Washington', October 27. Indian Com
missioner General ..Thomas J. Morgan,
against whose confirmation serious opposi
tion will be made when the Senate meets,
has been having a little row with Senator
Mandersou. According to a local paper, the
Commissioner is laying low and losing
no opportunity to secure promises
of Senatorial votes for use in the
executive session. As illustrating the
progress he is making, the follow
ing story is told. Senator Manderson has
had a candidate for appointment to one of
the positions under the Commissioner, but
he has failed to secure decisive action upon
his recommendation. It was on Friday
when the Senator came to make a final
bluff for his man. The Commissioner was
affable, butthece was no indication that he
intended to appoint the Senator's constitu
ent. As an excuse for the delay the Commis
sioner announced that be was not in any
hurry to remove Democrats who were per
forming their work satisfactorily, merely to
find places for Republicans. This caused
Senator Manderson to warm up, and
he said, sarcastically : "I am in
favor of that system, too, if it
is applied all around. Ho one had
any objection to Oberlyas Commissioner,
and it you are not going to remove any
Democrats, I am in favor of calling Oberly
back and putting him in as Commissioner.
The President had to remove Oberlv to
make a place for you, and I am putting my
man on just the same footing ns yourself
when you were a candidate for Indian Com
missioner." Commissioner Morgan did agree with the
logic of the Senator, but asked him if he
! Manderson) intended to vote for his
Morgan's) confirmation when it came be
fore the Senate this winter. The Senator
replied that it would depend upon whether
or not the Commissioner discoveredtin the
meanwhile that it was the Bepublican
party that carried the election last fall. In
the subsequent conversation it was dis
closed that Senator Plumb, on the occasion
of his last visit here, had privately notified
the Commissioner that he would oppose his
confirmation when Congress convened.

rison became a candidate for a position in

He got discouraged, however, and on July
16. at a meeting of the Ohio Bepublican As
sociation, created something of a sensation
by delivering himself of an abusive speech
against the administration, in which he de
clared that the course being pursued by the
present administration would destroy the
Bepnblican party, and added that, in his
opinion, a party with such leaders ought to
be destroyed. He has now changed his

several years, go to Ohio to vote.

Mistakes That May Cost the Virginia
Leader Many Votes The Democrats

rSrZCUL TELIOEAH TO Till DI8PATCH.1
BiCHMOND, October 27. A decided dif
ference is apparent between the political
situation in Virginia to-day and one week
ago. The Democratic party managers were
astonished at an apparent want of organiza
tion in many connties, and they went to
work with an energy and success without
parallel in Virginia politics. The result is
apparent already. They scared the Demo
cratic farmers from an attitude of non-working
over-confidence, and now each county is
well organized. Mahone, in previous cam
paigns, made blunders, but he invariably
charged them to some of his lieut
enants, generally Hon. John S.
"Wise. But the events of the
presenkcampaign, in which Mahone is sole
director, beget the suspicion that "Wise and
others were not always the real blunderers.
Certainly, during ten days past, Mahone's
opponents have been reaping in , new
strength from his blunders.
well-informed Democrats estimate that
the circular letter of Mahone to the negro
women, his circular letter to the negro
preachers, quoting the promises of Joshua
to certain people, and then the negro preach
ers' circular to their race, which was gotten
out according to Mahone's programme, has
gained a clear 5:000 votes for the Democrats.
As the majority of negroes cannot read, these
documents have simply reached every white
man in the State, and roused new ire against
negro domination. The last great blunder
is Mahone's starting out a corps of United
States Deputy Marshals to arrest Demo
cratic election judges for offenses alleged to
have been committed in the last Presidental
election. These arrests, having been clearly
made with the purpose of intimidating the
whites in the black districts, have bad the
effect of rousing thenrinto perfect organiza

I SPECIAL TXLEOHAK TO THE DISPATCH.
Ottawa, October 27. Advices from the
Northwest to the Internal Kevenue Depart
ment here report a big whisky spill at Cal
garry. A well-known hotelkeeper of that
town went to Winnipeg to lay in a stock of
tie ardent. He could sell beer, but tbe law
would not permit the sale of whisky, so
it was necessary for him to smuggle
his whisky into Calgarry in beer casks. On
bis arrival at Winnipeg he gave an order to
one of the wholesale liqnor houses amount
ing to nearly $3,000. Subsequently he met
a traveler from another large wholesale
house, who induced him to cancel his first
oider and purchase frdm him, which the
hotel keeper agreed to do. Beer casks were
purchased, and the whisky placed on board
tne cars lor snipment to Ualgarry.
The merchant to whom the original order
was given, but canceled, got wind of the
racket, nd obtaining the number of tbe car
in which the whisky had been shipped,
telegraphed to the mounted police at Cal-garry,-to
watch its arrival, as the car con
tained contraband" goodsT 'The result was
that when the car arrived the mounted
police boarded it and spilled the whisky on
the ground. The Winnipeg house that
filled the order has been badly left, as they
were to receive their $3,000 upon the de
livery of the whisky at Calgarry.

The Cramps Cannot Build Any More Cruisers
Joit Now Arrangements for tho
Seoond Trial of tho
rSTXCIAX. TXLEOBAX TO THE D1SFATCH.1
Philadelphia, October 27. The feet
that W. S. Cramp & Sons did not enter a
bi.d for the contract to construct any one or
all of the three 2,000-ton cruisers, the bids
for which were opened at the Navy Depart
ment last Saturday, has caused a great deal
of comment Charles H. Cramp, the head
of the firm, returned from Washington
to-day, where he had held a consultation
with Secretary Tracy concerning the trial
of the cruiser Baltimore, and had attended
the opening of the bids for the new cruisers.
When asked why his firm did not enter-proposals
for the construction of the new cruis
ers, Mr. Cramp said:
Wo have already up at our yard considerable
Government work yet to finish. The Baltimore
is not yet off our hands, the Philadelphia will
not be ready to tarn over to the Government
lor some months, while the Newark. Is still on
the stocks, and will not 60 launched until about
tbe first of the year. Beside this work for the
Government, we nave a number of contracts
ior snips lor tne mercnant marine on nano.aua
this, with the repair wort constantly coming In
from onr old customers, will keep ns busy for
some time to come. We wonld not care to
build a single one of the new cruisers, and if we
had secured the contract for the three we
would have been, compelled in order to com
plete them within the specified time to let wort
from some of our customers go elsewhere, and
this we wonld not care to do. Another thing;
at tbe present time there is a great deal of mer
chant marine work being offered, and we would
not care to be so filled up with Government
work that we could not take any of It
When asked his opinion as to the prices
for which other firms had offered to build
the new cruisers, Mr. Cramp was reticent
and only said:
Since the time of our first bid for the vessels,
which -was $575,000, Important changes and
modifications have been made which would
allow of their being built at a much lower
figure than at first specified. Some of Jhose
firms which Dut in the low bids may haTe dis-
coveredjnethods of ship buildine; that will
allow them to take the cruisers at a lower
figure tban we here In" Philadelphia have yet
discovered. However, I do not care to say any
thing on that point
Begarding the coming trial of the Balti
more, ir. uramp said
All the arrangements have been made for the
trial between Secretary Tracy and myself ana
the trial will probably take place in- the course
of a week-. Just whom the trial board will con
sist of I don't know, but probably it will be the
same as before. Coal and ballast have to be
loaded and wbrk will 'commence at that to
morrow, and as soon as the trial board is re
convened we shall be ready for them.

evening only one remained, and undoubt
edly he will share the fate of 'his shipmates
Life saving stations Nos. 4, 6 and 6

r San Fbanoisco, October 27. By the
steamer Mariposa, arrived from Australia,
was brought a story of the unusual suffering
of entombed miners, who were imprisoned
by the caving-in of the Hamilton coal raiae
near New Castle, N. S. W. After
many days of searching the bodies of
four of tho men were found on September 5.
They presented a gMastly sight, the bodies
being reduced to sun ana cones, ana ail
the surroundings showing that they
had starved to death, after mak
ing desperate efforts to escape
from their tomb. James Hodson was
found first. He had an iron bar with which
he bad tried to work his way out. Near
him, but separated by a wall of coal which
had fallen in, were found three other bodies.
All were nothing more than dried skin and
From their position and the state of the
bottom of the beading it was at once evi
dent that the poor Jellows must have died
from starvation, and in their agony
had paced np and down within lim
ited space until hard, beaten tracks
were formed. As the body of Hodion
was separated from the rest, it is thought
that he proceeded in advance of the parry
and was afterward unable to return
to them, owing to the roof fall
ing behind him. Hodson had tunneled
a distance of 44 yards through the debris,
but had finally succumbed. The skin on
the men's hands and arms was shrivelled
and cut. The flesh on their feces had wasted
away until tho cheek; bones seemed almost

Those who defend parliamentary divorce
have been appealing to the moral sense ot the
people against making dfvorce easy. The re
ply is that whin divorce is justifiable it ought
to be made as easy and as cbeap as possible.'
The proper tribunal to determine upon tbe
justice of a claim for divorce Is the court, and
not the Dominion Senate. One Judge can try a
divorce case better than 360.
Snfh are Mr. Foster's views on divorce,
an dTie ought to know something about it,
as he could not have secured in Canada a
divorce for Mrs. Chisholm, whom he- mar
