THE ESCAPED VESSEL.
The Policy of our Government is Still
. Kept a Secret With Regard to
Heavy Floods Threatened Along the
Rio Grande Germany Will Come
to "the World's Fair.
Washington, May 8. The policy of
the government with respect to the es
caped Chilian - vessel Etata is still an
official secret. Secretary Tracy and the
other officials this morning refused to
discuss the matter.
There can be no doubt of the fact that
the government is extremely anxious to
exhibit all possible zeal in its efforts to
recapture the vessel in order to avert
any unpleasant consequences that might
arise through the presentation of a
claim for damages in behalf of the Chil
ian government. It is not possible to
get an authoritive answer to the ques
tion whether the Charleston be sent
after it or not.
The Mobbing not a Serioos Affair.
Boston, May 8. A cablegram received
from the American consul at Florence at
the office W. W. Jacques of this city
states that the reported mobbing is not
as serious as at first supposed. Jacques
and family were out riding and happen
ing to drive through a street where an
arrest was being made, they were hit by
stones thrown at the arresting party.
A National Bank Suspends.
Philadelphia, May 8. The Spring
Garden National bank closed its doors at

Among the stock holders and de
positers a strong feeling prevails that the

temporary, and that they will receive
their money. '
Did Not Alter the Records..
Philadelphia, Pa., May 8. GeorgeC.
Baker, formerly-clerk in the appraisers
stores here was acquitted in the United
States district court of the charge of

lost thousands of dollars.
- The President In Idaho.
Boise City, May 8. The presidential

Philadelphia, May 8. The Pennsyl

OCR AVAILABLE NAVY.
Five Vessels Now Waiting Orders at the
Mare Island Yards.
San Fbancisco, May 6. At Mare Is
land navy yard, of the serviceable vessels
that are lying at safe anchorage, may be
mentioned the Charleston, Mohican,
Marion, Alert and Thetis. The former
vessel hashad placed on board her a
cargo of coal and lists of stores, and to
morrow she will probably come to this
city on her way to sea, for the purpose of
testing the new eight-inch guns and
drilling the crew in target practice. She
will then return to this city and await
orders from the navv department.
Where she will be ordered to is not
The Thetis will most likely leave the
yard after the Charleston. The vessel is
ready to depart and has been ,for some
time, but the delay in starting her otf is
due to the fact that she lacks her com
plement of officers and men. How soon
the department at Washingten will make
the necessary order for transfer of men
to the vessel is not known. The Thetis,
on leaving the yard, will proceed to the
coast of lower California and engage in
survey work. The Marion and Mohican
are both ready for a cruise, but it is more
than likely that the latter will get away
first. No orders have been received as
to what duty, will be assigned either
vessel, but in all liklihood one of them
will relieve the Ranger, which is now at
San Jose de Guatemala. "
A LUNATIC VP A TRKK.
Efforts to Dislodge Him Unsuccessful,
and He Finally Dropped Out.
Santa Rosa, May 6. Great excite
ment prevailed here "yesterday and last
night over the presence of a lunatic on
the top of a tall poplar tree. It was
Zolezzi, a Swiss, who was brought here
to be examined and sent to Napa. He
escaped from his friends at 12:30 p. m.
and shinned up a tree like a squirrels
and took a position on a small limb fifty
feet from the ground.
Every effort was made to get the de
mented man down and thousands of
people were attracted to the spot. Lad
ders were obtained from the fire, depart
ment and raised to the tree, but no one
could get near enough to throw a rope
around his body. As night approached
rain began falling heavily and the poor
fellow kept his perch till 4 o'clock this
morning when he fell to the ground fifty
feet below, haying been in the tree four
teen hours. Canvas had been stretched
below, and that saved his life. He
bounded off to the ground. His arm
and shoulder were fractured besides re
ceiving internal injuries.
A MARKET REGULATOR.
The Influence of "Old Hutch"
Rise and Fall of Prices.
Chicago, May 6. When wheat-traders
today were anxiously inquiring for
the occasion of the violence of the de
cline in wheat, T. M. Baxter gave his
explanation as follows: "The crowd
cannot understand why prices decline so
fast. Some day it will be asked why
they advance so fast. It does not apprec
iate the wonderful influence Hutchinson
had on this market when he was here.
He had an enormous fortune, and by this
he made it his business to prevent fluc
tuations, and he did prevent them. No
body half appreciated it at the time.
Now he is gone, and the ordinary market
influences have twice their old-time
effect. If Hutchinson were here he
would be upsetting the plans of the big
bear combination, which is at work.
The combination has now no Hutch to
Mrs. Blaine, Jr., Wants Her Child.
Sioux Falls, S, D., May" 6. The pur
pose of the visit of Mrs. James G.
Blaine, jr., to New York was learned to
day. She went to consult with her law
yers as to the advisability of holding a
conference with her husband and en
deavoring to secure his consent to relin
quish all claim to the 3-year-old son.
Young Blaine's mother is very anxious
to secure the custody of the boy, while
the wife is doing everything in her power
to get the child. Mrs. Blaine, jr., ex
pressed herself to her friends in this city
that she did not care so much for a
divorce as she did-to gain possession of
her child, which she feared would be
taken from her.
The Jackson Abduction Case.
London, May 6. The statement given
to the public by Mrs. Jackson, regarding
the brutal conduct of her husband while
she was a prisoner at Blackburn, has
turned public sympathy in favor of the
lady, whereas it has been strongly in
favor of the husband. It is now recog
nized that a reconciliation between the
pair is impossible, and the case will not
Drobably be carried any higher. Upon
Mrs. Jackson's death her husband will
succeed to a considerable income should
he survive her.
Torpedo Boat Sent to the Scene.
Halifax, N. S., May 6. The imperial
authorities haye changed their minds
about sending the war ship Emerald to
Newfoundland. A torpedo boat will be
sent instead.. The Emerald received
orders to proceed to Newfoundland im
mediately, but before she left her orders
were countermanded. The reason for
the change is that a torpedo boat will be

Topeka, May 6. Commander-in-Chief
Webb, of the Sons of Veterans, today is
sued a general order giving the result of
the court-martial of Walter 8. Payne, of

charged with embezzlement of orders of
money. The verdict is dishonorable dis
charge from the order, which is approved
by the commander-in-chief.

Doing Much Damage In Various Parts of
Ashland, Wis., May 8. The city is
enveloped in a dense smoke from the
surrounding forest fires. The depart
ment was busy all day in the outskirts
of the city fighting the flames.
At Washburn a large force of men are
at work trying to save the town which
is in great danger.
Several lives are reported lost at Mar
engo. The woods along the Omaha road
is one of flames.
The Northwestern road lost several
hundred cords of wood at Ashland, and
the Ashland Steel and Iron company
lost over fifty thousand cords at High
THERE WILL BE A FLOOD.
Deep Snows in the Kio OrancI Will Melt
and Inundate the Country.
Sa nte Fe, N. M., May 8. Parties re
turning from the Sierra Amiellas say
that a flood must soon sweep down the
Rio Grande. At Ambress Hill, Colo
rado, the snow stands up beside the
Denver and Rio Grande section six feet,
and thence it extends for miles, cover
ing the whole range as far as Belted
Gorge and ranging in depth from four to
twenty-five feet. All the streams are
overflowing their banks. Thus far the
weather has continued cool in that
region. At Valpero, above the San
Marcial, much land is under water and
there is also trouble in Lajara bottom.
He Acts Naturally.
San Fbancisco, May 6. At noon to
day William Woodford, a sailor, was
the only man still awake of the nineteen
who entered the will power versus sleep
contest, the seventeenth day of which
commenced at 7 o'clock tonight. Wood
ford is very weak, and at times acts like
a lunatic. It is only the constant atten

Grasshoppers About Folsom.
Sacbaeento, May 6. A Bee special
from Folsom says millions of grass
hoppers have appeared on the ranches
around there. Much uneasiness is felt
and great destruction has already been
done. The hay crop is the only thing
that will not suffer, as it is nearly all
Stripped of its verbiage and reduced to
simple language the decision of Secretary
Noble in cases of contests on homestead
entries amounts to this :
First In all cases arising hereafter
contests must be filed withiu two years
after the receiver's receipt had been
given on final entry, or thev will not be
recognized and a patent will issue as if
no contest had been instituted.
Second The law has a retroactive
effect also to this extent suppose the
receiver's receipt bears date May 1, 1889,
and no contest is filed before the 1st of
May, 1891 ; in such case the two years
count and no contest will therefore be
recognized, although part of the
limited period is thus nude effective be
fore the passage of the late law. It is
required, however, that the expiration of
the two years shall occur alter the date
of the act, which is March 3. Thus, if a
receiver's receipt is dated March 1, 1889,
and a contest is begun March 2, 1891,
the secretaay holds that it must be en
tertained as "pending contests," and
made an exception by the terms of the
