TUB I.ER INOIDKUT Ct.OBItD.
As for General Lee's case, the news
of the satisfactory ending of the inci
dent, through the withdrawal of the
suggestion by Spain, was expected as
soon as it was noted that a loophole
had been left op-jn Mirough the failure

I .ate in the afternoon Senor Duboac,
the Spanish chaige, received a cipher
cable from the minister of state at
Madrid, Senor Gullon, saying: "You
ean disavow the rumor thai any official
pplication has been made (or the re
call of General Lee."
This confirmed Mr. Du hose's riews

Mr. Dubosc aayi with emphasis, has
sever been intended.
the publicist and Sign ir Tanisis, mem
ber of the chamber of d -puties.
Shortly before the meeting Signor
Cavulotti seemed in excellent spirits and
even joked with his seconds. When the
word was given he attacked his oppo
nent vigorously. The fi.st two engage
ments were without result, but in the
tuird Signor Cavaloti received a thrust
in the throat that severed his jugular.
At first it was thought that he was only
slightly injured, but the gravity of the
wound was soon (erci ivtd on his put
ting bis ' and in his mouth. He with
drew it covered with blood and could
not litter a word. The doctors and hi?
seconds carried him to Zelhno and laid
him on a bed in the residence of Coun-
tes-i Celiaro. Tracheotomy was per
fottned nnd artificial breathing at
tempted, but all efforts were useless.
Signor Cavalotti expired in ten min
utes without speaking a'ain. Signor
Macola did not receive a scratch. The
news, on reaching the city, caused a
great sensation. Numerous denuties
and friends hurried to the spot and t here

lie was a lifelong opponent of Sigor
Cri pi and was glad to he known as one
of the Ita ian politicians who resisted!
with all their engeries the tide which, :
nnd r tbe auspices of Crispi, carried
lift y towards (jcrmany.
In lMi.'i, when the Manca Kumana
scandal was the sensation of Europe,
Signoi Cavalotti, then the leader of the
minion government to this country,
however, induced a pretty lively debate,
as it brought into c mtroversy the old
fisheries question on the New Kng'and
Boast, which hss been pending between
tbe Unit d States and (ireat Britain for
hundred years. The statement was
made on the floor of the eena'e that
there was every reason to believe that
hy the passage of the bill the fisheries
question could he settle 1 without great
effort, as assurances io thst effect had
been received from a large and influent
ial element in Canada.
ALASKA HILL TAKKM UP.
The Alaska bill was then laid before
the senate, an amendment by Mr. Raw
lins (Utah) to section 2, being under
Mr. Carter (Mont.) in charge of the
hill, moved to lay the amendment on
the the table. The motion prevailed
31 to 71.
The bill was read until section 13 was
reached. This extended to Canada the
bonding privileges on Alaskan trade with
Oana la at the port of Wrsngle in Alas
ka on condition that certain concessions
are given this country by the dominion
irovernrnent, among them being the
right of on' fishers to enter Canadian
ports lor the purchase of bait or other

after t.-i had published a pamphlet

and a nimt the charge of bribery in the
fifth district of Rome, where the premier
had ih fctted the, Siei'i n socialist,

gave notice in tbe chamber of a motion
toa .nul the election. When the matter
came up Crispi flatly de, lined to make
any slaieinent as t t ie qtiar-cl and the
chamber sustained by ins action.
S gnoi Cavalotti then renewed the at
tack in his paper, the Secolo, ol Milan
and announced that he would make
coinpk.nt, in the courts. This threat he
can n il out and in bis denunciation of
Crispi to the criminnl authorities he
asked forthe examination of the Marquis
li Kuifini and Signor Bertl, secretary of
the department of decorations, as wit
nesses in support of his charges as touch
ing Oorneiiua Her, the Panama canal
lobbyist. These proceedings, with vari
ous mortifications, were continued until
the court of cea-tition recently trans
ferrin the whole matter to parliament.
Pending this decision, however, Signor
Cavalo ti proposed the imneamment of
bignor Gnspi, then alien from power for
tbe disaster in the Abyssinian campaign.
To the last he relentlessly pursued Crispi
and the latter, on the dealh of his bril

Mr. Hale of Maine inquired if Mr.
furrier did not think it would he of ad
vantage to the United Sta'es to obtain
.he fisheries concession from Canada.
Mr. Turner replied that it would be of
advantage if we coiild obtain it, but he
lid not believe it could be obtained.
Mr. Hansbrough of North Dakota said
thst the committee on public landB was
in possession of information that Canada
would accept the conditions imposed by
the section. He was firmly of the opin
ion that the dominion pov. rnment would
yield on the fisheries question in view of
the concessions made to it by the bill.
NOT A LOCAL Qt'K'TION,
Mr. Hoar said the fisheries question
was not a local one to New England, but
a national question, a q"estion, too, par
ticularly applicable to the people of the
northwest, where the fisheries interest
was annually becoming gretter.
Mr. Frye said that the p nding bill
was of national importance. He thought
there never was a better opportunity to
sicure c .ncessioiiB from the Canadian
government than at the present time,
when the Canadian's wanted something
from the United States. He did not
think the motion ought to prevail, be
.a ise we have long been giving Canada
much and receiving little in return.
Mr. Frye believed that if it were not for
the captiousnesa of Canada there would
D it be the slightest trouble between this
j mntry and (ireat Britain.
Mr. Turner's motion to strike out the
fisheries portion of the section was de
feated by a yea and nay vote 84 to 16.
The section was adopted without divii
on. Mr. Carter agreed with Messrs Hoar
And Frye, concerning the mineral re-
fousces of Alaska. Mr. Carter said one
uthcrity, in which he said he had the
utmost confidence, estimated that in
Alaska gold to the amount of 1100.000.-
000 a year would be prod acted in a com
paratively snort time.

just received from Minister Woodford
and laid before the cabinet by the presi-
lent, says tiie World's Washington
wrrespondent, daclare.d that Spain has
exhausted every means of raising money
or the prosecution of a war without
aui cees. All the finacial centres of Eu
rope have rejected its overtures. Gen
eral Woodford pronounces it an utter
impossibility for Spain to secure funds
with which to . engage in hostilities
against, the United States. In reference
to the political conditions which im
pelled the ministry to suggest the recall
of ('cueral Lee, Minister Woodford
s lid that Sagasta was friendly to the
U i'.ed States and would make every"
effort to preserve peace. The future
ner, said General Woodford, lies
with tbe people. With a hostile major
ity now in the corteB and the probabil
ity that this will he continued at the
forthcoming elections, the overthrow of
the Sagasta ministry would be likely.
Tiie succeeding ministry would be
pledged to war in order to avoid revolu
tion. If tbe Sagasta ministry retains
power General Woodford believes that
Spain would endure humiliation rather
than declare war against the United
AdvlcftH From Honolulu.
