THE ESCAPED VESSEL. The Policy of our Government is Still . Kept a Secret With Regard to the Etatata. 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.

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 definitely known. 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" on the 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 fear." 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 more effective. He Embezzled the Funds. 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 Fostoria, O., ex-commander-in-chief, charged with embezzlement of orders of money. The verdict is dishonorable dis charge from the order, which is approved by the commander-in-chief.

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 Bridge. 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 tion of his attendant that keeps him awake. 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 harvested. Koble's Decision. 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 law. A letter from a large steamship firm in England indicates the probability of increased shipping business and higher grain rates from the United States jiorts this Bummer. The writer says it is evident that between now and next harvest a large quantity of grain must come from America to supply the de ficiency in France, which is stated to be about 10,000,000 or 11,000,000 quar ters, and Belguim will also have a large deficiency, all good ships will meet with good employment during the summer, not at excessively high rates, but at something better than present ones. Astoriau. At whist a gentleman loses the old trick, upon which the rubber turned, through the bad play of his partner, who failed to respond to his call for trumps, and so ruined a magnificent hand and good game. "Hard lines,"said a friend, who was lookingon, sympathetically and significantly. "Yes", was the reply, "but what could one do against three such adversaries?" Fifteen stories, with a flower garden on the roof, is the latest effort in the architectural line in New York. A res taurant is also to be located on the roof ' where, among flowers and rare plants, fanned by the cool breezes the citizens of the city namedmay lunch, enjoying at the same time an inspiring view of city and harbor. One of the sand-removing machines invented and patented by C. A. Cameron, superintendent of bridges and buildings on the Union Pacific, is being manu factured at the Albina shops. It is ex pected that the invention will be very useful in preventing sand blockades along the Columbia. East Oregonian. "No, I don't want any lawnmower," said the man who was anxious to chase the agent away. "What I desire .is more lawn." Mr. Gladstone has the best and bright est members of the English bar in his following. ... ,r Canon Liddon of England, deceased, bad a great objection to being photo graphed or painted.
