President's Pathway Hanged by
San Fkancisco, May 12. Richard O.
Trumbrell, a member of the Chilian
congress and a partisan of the insurgent
party was arrested last night by the
United States marshal for violating the
neutrality laws, in connection with the
shipment of arms and munitions of war
on the schooner Robert and Minnie and
Hia bail was fixed at 15,000 and was
furnished with John and iAdolph Sprec

After" his release he stated that he had
expected to be arrested and had made
no attempt at concealment.
"Will you make a fight against the
charge?" was asked. "A vigorous one,
depend oji that. Still, as I say, it
amounts to nothing. There is nothing

action of the Itata?"
"Nothing, but I might add that there
is a precedent for action in the case of

of the Itata?" ."That I do not know.

The Horrors Multiply.
Ludikqton, Mich., May 12. Some
people who lived in Walkerville before
the fire struck them have' arrived here
in a wretched state. They say it is im
possible to tell how many inhabitants
have escaped alive and they fear many
have died in the woods where they fled
for safety. The .village had 800 inhabi
tants and no one knows where more
than half of that number are at present.
Rumors of large loss of life at other
points come in, but verification is im
possible. This entire county will be
swept unless rains come today.

Paris, May 12. 1 :05 p. m. A panic

securities have fallen to .39.
The Market Gains a Little Tone.
Paris, May 12. There was a great ex
citement on the Bourse today, and wide
fluctuations in general securities have
continued. At one time it was difficult
to effect sales of Portugese and' Spanish
securities at almost any price. Later,
bears rebuying assisted the market, and
at the close it was fairly steady.
More Forest Fires.
Mechanicsbcrg, Penn., May 12 Dis
astrous forest fires have swept over the
mountain lands of this county since last
Monday, and are still raging. Fully
ten thousand acres of valuable" timber
lands have been burned over. The val
uable mining property of Alex Under
wood, near Dillbury, has also been des
troyed. ' Losses by fire already exceed
1 50,000. .
A Tow Boat 'Blows Up.
St. Louis, May 12. A private tele
gram was received here this afternoon,
which state that the tow boat "Mychric"
was blown up by a boiler explosion be
tween here and Cairo today. Two men
were reported drowned but the full ex
tent of the disaster is not yet known.

GONE AFTER THK ITATA.
Bach in Believed to he the Charlentan's
San Francisco, May 10. From an
authoritative source, says the Examiner,
it is learned that the Charleston's coursu
will lay souh, and that instructions
from Washington contained an injunc
tion to keep a sharp lookout for the Itata.
The hope of overtaking the runaway
rebel' craft is not entirely abandoned, as
the Itata. did not have so much of a start
as was supposed yesterday. Information .
from the Mexican and Southern Califor
nia coast shows that the Itata did not
Btart for home immediately on leaving
San Diego, but lingered outside until
the Robert and Minnie could get out and
transfer her heavy cargo of rifles and
cartridges. The transfer was not com
pleted until late Friday afternoon, so
that the Itata's is cut down to thirty
six hours, and about 500 miles distauce.
If the Charleston does not pick her up,
her orders are to keep on until Admiral
Brown is encountered in Chilian waters.
These orders have a business ring that
promises active service for the American
fleet, especially the Charleston, as the
Itata is bound to loose a day or more at
Cape San Lucas, transferring the coal to
Esuieraida, sent by the rebels to convoy
the steamer and her stores to the starv
ving base of operations. Should this be
the meeting point a fight is the most
probable thing on the card. The rebels
are desperate. They have no authority
to answer to, and unless the Esmeralda's
crew proves to be composed of rank cow
ards, the Charleston's attempt to seize
the Itata will be followed by some warm
work. The American vessel has the
better of it in speed, men, coal and pro
visions and navigating talent, but the
Esmeralda has guns of greater caliber,
and only slightly less modern than the
Charleston. . .
THK PKINCK OF WALES.
Germans Indignant That He Should
Have Asked to Open the London
Berlin, May 10. Many Germans are
indignant - that the Prince of Wales j
should have been selected to open the
German exhibition in London, though
in the ordinary course of things he would
be the most suitable person to perform
the function. It is alleged that the
prince, for some reason, threw cold water
on the exhibition project from the start,
and that be only recently wrote the em
peror that the enterprise was purely a
speculation, and advised the kaiser to
have nothing to do with it. The conse
quence is said to have been that the em
peror withheld his support from the ex
hibition until its managers laid convinc
ing proof before him that it was a genuine
exhibition and worthy of patronage.
There- are some who reason that '. the
prince may have been correct in his crit
icism of the purposes of the exhibition
at the time he communicated with the
emperor, and that his disapproval had
the effect of causing the promoters of tTe
affair to turn it into a more legitimate
enterprise, making it possible for him to
finally give it bis open sanction.
YOUNG DON .TITANS.
The Coarse of Trne Lore Changed by a j
Carlisle, Pa., May 11. During the i
progress of the soiree-musicale given Sat- j
nruay night Dy the JUetzar institute, a
female seminary of this place, two well
known . students of Dickinson college
placed a long ladder against the rear of
the institution, and tried to reach the
private rooms of two of the inmates, with
whom thev had arranged to spend the
evening. The ladder was too short, so
rthe boys borrowed another from a-coal-j
yard near by, with which to splice it.
lwo policemen, happening to observe
their operations, waited until the colleg
ians were well up the ladder, and then
attempted to arrest them. The lower
one jumped and escaped, but lost his
hat, by which means his name was as
certained. The other was captured and
placed under )(200 bail on the charge of
attempted house-breaking. A warrant i
has been issued for the one who escaped, j

London, May 10. The Obnerver, com

attacks the whole system py which for

States, and declares that t he method
by which the New Orleans Sicilians were
made Americans would not lie regarded
as binding in any civilized community.
The writer instances the wav in which

with Italy is far from settled. .
The World's Fair Laborers.
Chicago, May 10. The world's fair
labor committee has decided' to take
prompt action to compel the fair direct
ors to agree to fix a minumum rate of
wages. At a special meeting of the com
mittee today a plan of action was mapped
out which includes appeals to the com
mon council of this city, state legislature
and the labor organizations of the coun
try. Besides this, the committee has
under consideration the question of mak

An Attack Made on the Czarevitch With
a Sharp Sword.
Behlin, May 12. A dispatch which
received here from Tokio, the capital of
-Japan, announces that an attempt was
made upon the life of the Czarewitcl
but that the the imperial traveler,
though seriously wounded, is considered
in no danger of dying. The Gzarewitch
was suddenly attacked by a Jap armed
with a sharp sword. Before the Jap
could lj over-powered he had inflicted,
several severe cuts on the Russian
prince, who defended himself vigorously.
No cause is known for the attack.
AH I'nlucky (iamlilrr.
London , May 10. Society has been
convulsed by stories of the insolvency of '
the Prince of Wales. The statement ac
companying this announcement that
the prince has been gradually over
whelmed by' his debts is misleading.
The correct figures of his liabilities are
about 1 1,500,000, of whicn three-fourths
have resulted from heavy play and bet
ting transactions. During " the past
seven months the prince's fiite has been
the same as that of all other unlucky
gamblers. He met with some big losses
on the turf and at the table last autumn.

A Summer KcMirt In Berkshire.
. Several citizens of New York city,
Poughkeeptie, Mount Washington and
Great Barrington have organized the
South Berkshire club for the purpose of
establishing a summer resort for them
selves and families at Sky farm, Mount
Washington, the birthplace of Elaine
and Dora Good ale. Those best known
in the vicinity as active in the enterprise
are H. F. Keith, of Mount Washington;
S. B. Goodale, F. L. Pope, of New York;
and Lawyer A. C. Collins, of Great Bar
rington. The farm of 600 acres is to be
called Taconic Woodland, and be laid
oat as a park of sixty-five shares, and it
ia expected that a shareholder will build
a cottage upon each lot and have a sixty
fifth interest in the property of the asso
ciation. The club house for the entire company
will be the historic Sky Farm cottage,
from which a magnificent view is ob
tained in every direction. The house
will contain dining rooms, parlor and
library, with accommodations for tran
sient guests. Thirty shares are already
subscribed for, and the lots are Bold only
to approved parties under proper restric
tions. The town of Mount Washington
is in the southwestern part of Berkshire
county, and was organized June 21,
1779. Previous to its incorporation it
was known as Tauconnnck Mountain
meaning the great wooded mountain,
and here were made, about 1693, the
earliest settlement in . Berkshire.
A Prompt Answer to Prayer.
A United Brethren preacher, the Rev.
John R. Eberly, of Lewiston, has been
conducting meetings at the Brush Ridge
school house, in this county, for three
weeks. The countryside for inikd
around is represented nightly, and in
tense interest ia shown. The other
night au amusing climax occurred dur
ing the delivery "of Brother Eberly's
opening prayer. The venerable minister
has shown a partiality for the phrase.
"O Lord, shower thy. blessing down
upoii us," wnich is incorporated in all
When this period of his invocation was
reached the audience was thrown into a
condition of extreme excitement by tlie
copious all of water fro in the trap door
directly over the minister," drenching
him through and through. A temporary
check was given to the services by this
sudden fuhlllinent of the preacher's
prayer and the tranquility of the meet-'
ing was not re-established until an in
vestigation revealed the cause of the un
expected downpour. John L. Smith, a
fifteen-year-old boy, had secreted him
self in the attic of the school honse in ad
vance of the meeting and given practical
effect to Mr. Eberly's invocation with
two buckets of water. Lewiston (Pa.)
