to tho President, u tiling which has
not happened since Consul General
Leo's famous cablegrams to President

This cablegram from Woodford was
not long, but recited the fact that
Premier Sagastii refused to admit that

largest concessions ever obtained by

hits fallen into the hands of usyudicatu
of Xew York capitalists, who have
completed the organization of a com
pany to control the exportation and
Importation of cattle and live stock of
all descriptions from and to tho re
public of Honduras. Tho concession
is for twenty-llvj years.
This concession was granted in Au

'Switzerland. His labors resulted in
tho formation a few days ago of tho
Honduras-American Cuttle, Agricul

of tho company, .losu Antonio Lopez
of Guatemala is vice president, James

establish and operate slaughterhouses,

of like nature is granted, as is exemp
tion from all taxation on tho com
pany's business, property and pro

The concessions, it is believed, will

Tho price of beef on tho hoof In Chi

to tills remark hu added tho
opinion that tho timu had nlmost
come when thu question of annexation
should bo dobatcil upon u bill looking
to legislation by both houses of Con
gress rather than upon tiio basis of
tho treaty. Whilo he thought there
might bo u bure possibility of securing
thu sixty votes necessary to ratify the
treaty, ho conceded that, under tho
present circumstances, this was ex
ceedingly doubtful, and ho thought
thu sooner this fact should bo recog
nized und u clinugo of front made, tho
better it would bo from all points ol
Senator Teller advocated tho ratlfl
nation of the treaty, basing his .rea
sons for this position upon tho grounds
that tho annexation of tho islands
was in tho interest of our commerce,

Thoy believe they can send him to tho

Kennedy and James Hedmond, his ac
complice, confessed the murder in his

plenty of evidence to corroborate his ,,

This Is done to protect him from Ken

Inspector llalpiu and Cassimer
Welch, deputy county marshal, who
went to St. Joseph, Mo., in search of
Hedmond Saturday night, returned
this morning without their man.
Tho police had received information
that Hedmond was in St, Joseph,
but Inspector Hatpin says ho could
not find him in St. Joseph. The sup
position is thut he bus gono to Kan
