OTHER Tho State Department the MlnluterB Pe culiar Movoh Watched With Jntoroat nocMon with the proposed plan of reciprocity which seems to have been entirely over but to which tho attention of the Committee on Finance was called today This is tho fact that wo got per cent of oinWar supply from Germany and a con siderable amount from Australia Belgian Tho Netherlands and Franco The beet sugar imported yoar was valued nt of which Germany furnished Austria Belgium and Tho Netherlands and France each a small portion If any reciprocity proportion therefore Is adopted itshould bo broad enough to embrace ku ns well as the American countries fot it is possible to make commercial arrange ments with Germany Belgium and B ranee under which wo may secure tho removal of tho embargo now placed upon our pork by those countries as well as tho free ad nils mission of broadstuns and other food prod ucts This would bo an enormous advan tage but Germany would naturallyrequlro an inspection of preserved moats and other provisions Tho food inspection bill which Is now pendlngupon tho calendar of the Senate was prepared after consultation with tho pork packers and lard manufacturers and to endorsed by thorn so that there would bo no objection to tho incorporation of its provisions In any treaty that might bo undo with Germany or any other country if It wero required Our exports Germany

AdjutantGeneral of thearmy suid today that think any officer S Si to servo Worlds Fair in the Dispatch San Francisco Chrnnicte Series ques tion now hskod lioru on all sides is how much longer will tho Government postpone recognition of tbo existing provisional gov of Salvador nor can any ono under stand why It has notbeen done before this Asa matter of fact when the State Depart ment received a cablegram from Minister WinnerAugust Sth announcing that during a batlo at tho city of San Salvador tho forces of tho provisional government had United States flag and Immedi ately InstruotiKl Minister by cable to demand full reparation from the provisional government of Salvador for the Insult that very moment tho Government of the United States virtually tho gov ornmept of General Exota as the legal gov ernment of Salvador That General expects and exacts recognition without conditions as an abso lutely necessary stop before accepting the mediation ot tho United States on the affair with Guatemala is ovidtinood by ances reported in dispatches from Salvador August 1st In which hols reported to have aald In a dispatch to Minister MIxnor If tho groat Eopublloof which you area worthy

rate is simply ap and tbo diseasehas also extended to tho City of Guatemala whore it is also causing great mortality among tho soldiers and inhabitants alike Hostilities aro sus ponded but thoro Is advancement from Guatemala in the Interest of peace owing todiseord among tho members of tho diplo matic corps who aro trying to mediate tho Mlznor desires to act alone in thismatter and had lost tho support of tho other ministers resident there Ho has not returned from Salvador whoro his efforts have proved futile owing to his manifest partiality for Guatemala Ezota has little confidence In him Is believed that with smallpox raging tho war between the two countrieswill be forced to come Co an end and that peace will be patched up some way It sooms strango that Goronlmo Pan here should have received dispatches from Prosl stating that negotiations for poaco were going along through of tho diplomatic corps In Guatemala and that tho abovo dispatch shou Id stato tho contrary The only explanation which socms plausible is that tho above quotod dispatch from Ginttomala referring to Mlxnors partiality for Guatemala must originate with Mexi cans as not one of this nationality has any lovo for him and consequently allowance should bo made for prejudiced statements BLACKFOOT Idaho Aug to the Domocracio convention hold here today the following nominations were made For State Senator
