MADRID , Oct. 24. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to THE BEE , ! Senor Cas-
tcllar , at a banquet of 1,500 republicans and
liberals at Barcelona , maao a speech very
favorable to Scnor Sagasta and the liberal
po'.icy. Ho thinks it best to acccmallze the
parliamentary government and insure the
triumph of progressive reforms so as to con
solidate public liberties nnd Insure the Iran-
quility and prosperity of Spain. Scnor Cas-
tcllar believes that personal government dis
appeared with the death of Alfonso XII.
Conservatives uselessly try to rovlvo
it by opposing the rc-cstablishmcnt
of universal suffrage. Scnor Castcllar
wants to get that voted before all other
forms , military or economical. Ho declares
himself still , in principle , a frco trader , but
as a statesman , would enforce the protection
of native productions and agriculture against
nations not disposed for a reciprocity of
concessions or treaties , like England in the
cattle trade with Spain. Senor Castellar says
all Spanish republicans favor closer relations
with France. The monarchy inclines toward
Germany , haying given her a treaty 01 com
merce detrimental to Spanish interests. The
true ] Klicy of Spain ought to be , at home ,
liberal and democratic with a retrenchment
of the array and nivv estimates , abroad
neutrality , or Spain will , like Italy ,
plunge into unnecessary armaments
entailing deficits nnd an Increase of taxation
to support the policy of alliances against na
tional aspirations and interests. Scnor Cas
tellar thinks the Spanish monarchy , by imi
tating England under Queen Victoria , will
last longer and bo more popular.

The secretary of the interior to-day handed
own a number of decisions In Nebraska
and cases Appealed from the findings of the
commissioner of the general land office.
\mong them was the CMC of James Connors ,
rom whom Commissioner Sparks required
ow publications nnd proof la support of his
ire omptlon cash entry for lots Nos. 1 , 2 , 3
nd 4. section 4 , townshio 32 , rangu 44 west ,
Valentino district of Nebraska. The de-
ision is reversed.
In the matter of the appeal of Sarah A.
Davis from the decision of Commissioner
parks , rejecting her application to make
liomestead entry on the northeast quarter
cction 4 , township 1 north , range 32 west ,
ilcCook district , the stcrctary sustains the
finding of the commissioner.
In the case of JameaJN. Nesby , whom the
ommissloncr of the general land office re-
[ Uircd to relinquish ono sub-division
if the land embraced in his prc-emp-
ion entry , covering the southeast quarter
f the northeast quarter of lot 1 , section
1 , and lots 4 , 5 and 0 of section 23 ,
.ownshlp 1 north , tango 29 west ,
UcCook land district ; the secretary holds
hat as the land lies , ln different quarters
lections , this case comes within the rules
aid down in the case of J. B. Burns , and
.he entry should approximate 100 acres as
nearly ns existing subdivisions will allow ,
t is now ten und ihreo-quarter acres in ex
cess of the quarter 'section and by the ro-
linquishmcnt of the smallest lot , it might be
brought within less than eight acres of that
amount , and as the claimant sets forth no
utlicient reason whyitho rule referred to
should not be aoplled in his case , the decision
of the commissioner is aftlrmcd.
On Juno 1 , Its" , the commissioner of the
and oftlccs held for cancellation the pre
emption cash entry of George A.Wilmeth for
the northeast quarter of .section 25 , township
7 , north , range 20 westMcCook district , Ne
braska. The commissioner , who , at that
time , was General Sparks , was dissatisfied
with the proof that Wtlmelh submitted this
'n good faith in making the entry. Ho had
broken the requisite inumber of acres , had
built a sod house , put upafonco and a stable ,
and a frame house had been erected and
.mprovements to the value of $130 had been
made. Iliu secretary , gay a ho is not pre
pared to find that the claimant was acting In
bad faith ; but ho docs not bcliovo that he
has established his right to the patent , and
bo therefore modifies the decision to the cx <
tent of requiring that the claimant shall be
required to make proof again before this
patent is allowed.
The Loyal Legion 'offered Mrs. Sheridan
to erect a monument in memory ol

decided that she willAcrect a monument tc

The arrangements hare not yet been per
fcctcd and the style of the monument hat
not been decided upon , but it is believed it
will be a simple shaft and not an elaooratt

Ho Thinks Wheat Should Not Be Held
Rock Too-tionK *
FAIIOO , Dak. , Oct. 24. Oliver Dalryraple
of the world-famed Darlymplo farm , and ac
counted one of the shrewdest men engaged
in farming , gives U as his opinion that then
will bo a further advance in the price o :
wheat during the winter , but ho docs not an
tlclpato much advance ) until after the wheat
has passed out of tuo bands of the farmer :
into the elevators. It is believed by manj
farmers who arc holding back their whca
for higher prices that , notwithstanding ttu
light crop , it will bring : as much money Inti
general circulation as "last year , but Mr
Dalrymplo docs not share that opinion. Tin
amount of wheat they will be able to holt
back , ho thinks , has been overestimated
The crop is unquestionably very light am
most of the grain of inferior quality , there
being qulto ns much rejected this year as o
No. " last year. The farmers have notes U
meet this fall , and very few will have an )
considerable quantity of wheat left aftei
they are paid. The encouraging feature o
the situation is that the present high prlcei
are llkoly to continue two or three yean
longer , and with moderately good crops wi
shall bo able to realize handsome profits tha
will enable the farmers to pay off their debts
The effects of this \till , " of course , be felt ii

of the Parnell commission so far. Mr. Egan
is one of the noted Irish-Americans arraigned
by the London Times with Mr. Parnell and
Ho said : "What has been said so far is
simply a rehash of the chargcswithout proof ,
that have been made for the last tlvo years. I
suppose , however , that the Times , with all
Its money , ability and resources , will bo able
to make a plausible showing. But wait until
the evidence for PBrneil is produced. Tno
whole Times case will be exploded and indis
putable evidence developed which will show
Parnell guiltless and the true character of
the allegations against him. You may ex
pect some sensational testimony. "
"You have private information concerning
Parnell's defense I"
"Yes ; I know something of it. I shall
myself , perhaps , bo able to tell some things
which have not been printed in the event of
a sub-commission being sent hero to tuko de
positions of these of us in the United States.
I have no doubt of the complete vindication
of Purnell und all his associates , and this
result will greatly injure the government.
The government is completely bound up with
the Times , supplying testimony , money and
countenance in every way , and the destruc
tion of the Times' case will hurt the conservatives
vatives very much , ami if the Parnellites
are beaten it will hurt them , to bo sure. "
