four days after the steamer Alameda
aailed for San Francisco. ;
An interview published in the Even

"You are authorized to say no change

with me certain Instructions from tba
United States government on tha

rival contingencies have arisen a boo I
which neither the United States gov

I left Washington. I have though!
best in the exercise of the discretion
allowed to submit those matters to
Washington before proceeding further'
