whereaboutsof "Dlsmarck , " who Is held for
complicity In tbo Haddock murder , has Just
been made public. When "Hlnmarck" re

Council HlufTs by Mavor Cletaml , of Sioux
Cltand brought to this city In compmy
with Chief ol Police Nelon and Marshal Shan-
ley. On Saturday ho vvas taken to the gov
cnior's onice , and there , In thu piescnceof
Governor Larrabeu and the persons above
named , he made a complete confession of his
connection with Ids crime , he being aucjo
witness of It , Thlsconfcsslon was taken down
In short hand , and when transcribed made
about tun pages of foolscap. The governor
personally nqucstcd the newspapers to make
no mention of the tact at the time , as the
prosecution could woik better If its plans
were not made public. For tliat reason no

Ills testimony shows that the innrder vvas the

Cable Special to the Ur.i.j : The Spaniards
nhvajs take up warmly any question of trade
competition with foreign countries. Hut In
the present case outside of the purnly com
mercial and shipping circles of Uarcrlona
and tlio ports wlieie the Trans-Atlantic
Steamship companj and other llrms of ship *
pels combine to encourage the Italians and
oilier protectionists In icslstanco to an agree
ment with America the crcat majority of
tlio Similauls and the most respect
able orgatiH of the press seem
to share tlio opinion expressed very
strongly by the > \i > t Indian senators nud
deputies. In their minds the question at
Issue Is as to whether the Madrid govern
ment , by the sincere execution of the text and
spirit of the treaty of IbSl , which has been
faithfully earned out hitherto by America ,
will attend to the inteiests of the Cuban
trade and agiiculturo sooner than prolong
the diplomatic conlllct , simply to please a
few Spanish and Havana shipping films and
protectionists who hope that tlie conflict will
postpone the efforts of diplomacy to
make closer the commercial rela
tions between Cuba , Porto Itlco
and theii natural markets in America.
The Spaniatds umlcistind that with the
existing German , Fiench and Drlttsh treaties
a commerce with liltlo trade worth mention
ing from the countries without the ti CM tics
could teach the West Indies Indlicclly under
the American Hag , and Cuba would bo the
gteater loser by the sjfitemof reprisals fool
ishly adv ocatcd in some Madrid and llaico-
lonn papers , contrary to the friendly disposi
tion ot the majority. Public opinion nowa
days Is favorable to the Idea of uromotlng
colonial Inteiests. Thus tlio Coiiev-
pondoncla Deespana sajs to-night : "Tho
friends of the government claim
that a satisfactory solution lias been
arrived at on the micstlon of a commercial
comcnlion between Spain and the United
States , but I believe this report to bo prema
ture , though negotiations to attain that le
sult have made progress. "
