The Charleston Will Probably be Sent
to South America.
Washington, March 23. The contin
ued warlike news from Chili renders it
likely that the Charleston will be sent
along with the San Francisco to join the
Baltimore and Pensacola in those waters.
Should this be done, and it was vry
seriously considered at the navy depart
ment Saturday, Rear-Admiral Brown
will receive authority to transfer his
flag from the Charleston to the San
Francisco. Rear-Admiral McCann
would then, by virtue of seniority, be in
command, but only temporarily, as the
intention is to have him resume com
mand of the South Atlantic station as

to the South Atlantic it will probably be
in the Baltimore, the Pensacola remain

that the evidently inspired statements
in the Tribvne this morning in regard to
Secretary Proctor's resignation, which

H.dmunds gives it color. Mr. Fierce

By careful inquiry of stockmen from
different parts of the county it is learned
that the loss of stock during the recent
storm amounted to nothing. One man
who has about 5000 sheep reports a loss
of thirty, another with 3000 lost five,
and this seems to be about the average
only the natural loss that' would have
occurred had there leen no storm. Cat
tle and horse raisers report no loss to
speak .of, and report their stock in fine
