April two weeks' armistice asked by Nicaragua and through the offices 'of the-United States is to all-intents a dead letter. The delay.-was granted on the condition that Nicaragua would agree'to pay the Indemnity before the expiration of the two weeks. That gov- ernment did not make the .and there the matter rests. It is. not a ques- tion of for Nicaragua has. been offered the money from at three different 1. A London syndicate.. 2. Merchants citizens of Nicara- gua. 3. The Nicaragua Canal company. The state department has no explana- tion to offer as to the motives that may be influencing but'it can be stated frankly'that'.the administration is very much' disgusted with the com- plexion affairs are taking.'Not the least disturbing feature of the complication is the discovery that Nicaragua has been and- IB still figuring with London capitalists to released from a na- tional debt-of about cash bonus in the national treasury with on a new era of financiering. That this Is cutting an'important figure in the matter is and it goes a long way to show however much the Nicaraguans and English may be out- wardly relations under the surface are of a character that may q lead to a sudden settlement of the dis- pute' upon terms to' the decided disad- vantage of the United States In a com- mercial and political sense. .Three Vessels Ordered to Proceed to Ports hi r April Some sudden and. unexpected orders issued to United States naval vessels late yesterday caused a sensation for a time until the import of the order was Tne which has stationed for a. month or more at parrama watching theprogress of the revolutionary move- ment .in was ordered to pro- ceed at once to San Juan del the nearest cable -port to Nicar- agua.

At a late hour last evening Pres- ident Zelaya received a telegram from Washington stating that Great Britain would withdraw her ships from Corinto and give Nicaragua fifteen days in which to pay the smart money if such a proposition would be accepted by Nicaragua. President Zelaya at once held an audience with his principal ad- and a reply will probably be made within a few hours. To Look Tnto thn Case of TValle'ry April United States Am- bassador Eustis has received pointed and definite instructions from Washing- ton regarding the case of ex-CansuI now imprisoned in France- un- der a twenty years' sentence imposed by a court-martial on the ground that he was in communication with the Hovas. Eustis has verbally and in writing communicated his instruc- tions to the French Minister of Foreign' M. but the.- latter has not yet replied to these tio.ns. The representations -by Mr. Eustls were courteous and were intended to the French side of the case. re'por't of United States Consul who succeeded Mr. Waller at while substantially confirming the newspaper reports of the was not sufficient to satisfy the state which desires an accurate. state- ment of all the facts before what its attitude shall be in this v ter.

Ex-Congressman Wil- liam Lathrop and City Attorney Robert K. Welsh entered appearance as their attorneys and made a motion that the defendants be given time to read the in- dictments.

April annual con- vention of Iho Amalgamated Associa- tion ami Steel Workers will bo held in Cleveland in two and it will be the most Important session since 1892. The organization Is stronger now than at that time and it covers a larger territory. This year the great as will be a revision of the wage so as to secure a restoration of the wages lost during1 the business depres- sion. Since the summer of 1893 the wages of the iron and steel workers have been going down. The puddling rate fell from to per ton and even that rate has been cut In many notably In Plttsburgr. The voluntary reduction of 10 per cent in the tonnage rates for finishers was followed 'last year by a further reduction of 10 per and in the Youngstown district the finishers took another cut of 15 per cent. The only workers who escaped were the sheet mill hands. The tin plate workers compromised with a reduction of per cent and 15 per one- half what was demanded by the manu- facturers. The demand for a wage re- storation will likely cover all depart- ments of mill with the poS3lble ex- ception of the tin plate Ueiimjid for SalHnff Vessels.
