Whereas , It has baon brought to my
knowledge that unlawful enclosures , niul such
as are prohibited by the terms of the aforesaid
statute , exist upon the public domain , nnd
that actual legal settlement thereon Is pre
vented nnd obstructed by such enclosures and
by force , throats nnd intimidation , now ,
therefore , I , Grover Cleveland , president of
the United States , do her * by order and direct
that any mid every unlawful enclosure of pub
lie lands , maintained by any persun ,
association or corporation , bo Immedi
ately removed , and I do hereby
forbid any person , ass ciation or corporation

LONDON , August 10. All morning papers
to-day publish copious accounts of the funeral
of Gen. Grant , All agree that the outpouring
of people on the occasion and their deep grief
as indicated by the dispatches was something
wonderful , The Times has a special dis
patch three columns long detailing the scenes
rind incidents of the funeral and prints a lead-
in ? editorial praising and recalling many per
sonal traits of the dead general. It expressed
unbounded admiration for the conduct of the
American peopld concerning the burial
of Gen , Grant and pronouucos tbo funeral
a spontaneous outburst of national admiration
and gratitude which , although it can do
nothing for its actual object , is not therefore
lean to be commended. In conclusion the
Times says : "No other nation and no former
period could have afforded materials for such
a procession as that of _ Saturday , or oven the
physical conditions which enabled its mem
bers to come together , "

No charge was entered against any of thpm ,
Mullen was convicted in the United States
court for violation of the federal election laws ,

grounds for the action of the president , the
general good reputation of the prisoner , the
fact that the application was signed by so
many first-class citizens , and that Mullen
probably misapprehended his duties , and
various other reasons.

CUIOAQO , August 10 , There was not much
ifo in to day's markotc , all fluctuations being
confined to narrow limits through scarcity of
outside orders and the non-receipt of any
news of a disturbing character , Receipts were
moderate ; tha last half hour was the weakest
of the session.
Wheat opened weak and lower under lusher
quotations on British consols , fine weather and
the encouraging outlook for crops. There
wore almost no buying orders from the out
side , and trading was very lilit. Prices re
mained at about the < pjninz figure to a frac
tion above , there being so little business doing
that prices were povernod almost exclusively
by tha sale of privileges.
Foreign cables were firm , but seemed to
have no effect on the market. The whole
range was but go. Dispatches to Armour from
his northwestern agents reported the general
crop outlook decidedly improved and harvest
ing operations about three-quarters over with.
Through the lightness of outside orders
trading was confined largely to the local
crowd , none of whom distinguished them
selves. No. 2 spring sold at 87c. The chol
era scare came in during the last hour , induc
ing liberal selling and the breaking of values
down to the lowest points of the morning ees-
Corn attracted about the usual attention ,
and in sympathy with other grains during the
bulk of the morning session ruled steady at a
shade under Friday's closin ? prices. No , 2
oath sold at 17J@47ic.
Oats are quiet and Inclined to he slow at a
decline of J@jjc from Friday' * quotations.
Provisions showed a little more life than on
Friday , but wore still quiet. Receipts con
tinue heavy , while shipments as a rule in the
hog product are light. Durintr the early part
of the morning session there was a temporary
spasm of weakness induced by like conditions
in grains , but a few sizeable purchases soon
reacted the market to its former firmness.
In the afternoon there was afirm feeling ,
caused by a good local and southern demand.

it found the president of Ecuador rather dis
inclined to a reciprocity treaty , because- his
government needed revenues from imports ,
and because other countries buy moro goods
from Kcuador than the United State ; , which
In that respect stands fifth. The tariff of
Ecuador was to bo rovlicd soon , however , and
ho would suggest a reduction in the duly on
keroseno. _ In regard to the adoption of com
mon silver coin for the Central and South
American States and the United Ktetep , ho
said his country win not working in its silver
mines and had no silver to coin. Ho favored
n commercial congress of the countries men
tioned , and went to siy that ono nf the great
obstacles to commerce with the United States

the carrying trade being prac'.ically a
monopoly , and intimated that it the United
States would establish n line of coasters with
equitable charges , no other coast vessels would
be allowed to trade al the potts of Euador.
The cainmisoion found that a treaty with
Spain , Ecuador's largoa cuitomer , was being
negotiated. The commission believes that by
the exercise of proper methods the United
States can gain a practical control of the trade
of this country. The commission reports that
it was received by the
and hfa cabinet , and its suggestions wore re
ceived as matters of much importance ) but
that the Vcnczullau congress was soon to
convene , and ho desired not to ba hampered
by promises : but he paid ho would soon com
municate with the United States government
on the subjects refflrred to. In addition Gen.
Blauci was In KuropQ for the purpose of
negotiating treaties.
In the report on results of the
is embodied a communication from the minister
of foreign relations , in relation to memoran
dum of the points for consideration fubmitted
by commission It conncludes as follows : "The
the government of Guatemala is thoroughlycon-
vinced of the necessity of a more intimate re
lation between the United States and it , and
accepts gladly the manifestation made to it
of tbe ( ledM of the United States to lend its
moral influence , in case of necessity , to pre
vent European interference in American of-
fairs and considers that such influence and at
titude will be very important and beneficial , "
The government of Guatemala is disposed
to arrange , and it has already taken some
steps towards it , a treatyof reciprocity , drawn
so as to produce the
to the greater possible number of inhabitants
of both countries , according to the terms pro
posed in the memoranda , but reserves the
privilege of hereafter stating in detail the
nrticloj to ba Included on both sides , provided
that among those articles produced by Guate
mala , to be received into tbo United States ,
sugar shall be included. The letter adds that
Guatemala favors n common silver coin of tbe
value of n gold dollar ; that tbe nation would
gladly join an international congress , and con
cludes by saving that a consolidation of thefivo
Central American states would prove of great
commercial advantage all arcund.

commission Intended to ascertain , if possible ,
what were tbo actual facts roepectlng the
