not broad and far reaching enough to meet
th necessities of the cse. evidence a de
sir on the part of the moderates to main
tain the Integrity of the republic, even
though they are compelled to . abandon
their control. Consequently the situation
Is at least Romewbat more hopeful. There
must be some resignations showing the
good .faith of the government before the
rebel wll consent to lay down their arm."
A th ecretary turned to enter hi auto
mobile he added:
"At least we have got the ice broken."

posed to have moored at some convenient
place near Newport News. I'nder ordinary
circumstances sufficient coal can be ob
tained at that place- for the vessels of the
navy 'on reasonable', notice, but It has
happened In the past' that warships have
had to wait while merchant and other ves
sels were 'costing, "owing to the lack of a
sufficient number of lighters, and In one
Instance a warship which put Into New
