Let Arbitration Settle! lie Trouble
and Prevent War. to Tiik AstOKiak.1
Washington, July 18. The threat
ened war in Central America offers a
good opportunity for the test of
Blaine's plan of arbitration, as adopted
at the late international Americau con
ference. The governments of Salva
dor and Guatamala have assented to
the plan last May, and declared in
solemn resolutions that Avar on this
continent shall be no more; but so far
as known neither nation has signiGed
a desire, or even a willingness to sub
mit the matter to arbitration. In fact,
there is no actual difference to arbi
trate. The affair is a revolution rather
than ji war.
The late president of Salvador is a
linn believer in and an advocate of a
union of the Central Americau repub
lics, and signed the treaty of coalition,
which was also signed by Guatemala
and Honduras. "United States minis
ter Mizuer has been instructed to use
his good oflices to preserve peace and
settle the difficulty.

man Craiu of Texas was on tho war
path to-day. He was lookiug for
O'Brien Moore, a correspondent of
the St. Lonis Republican. It seems
that Moore telegraphed to his
paper that if several Demo
cratic members, including Crain,
had remained at their post of duty,
instead of driukhig over the bar acros-s
from the Capitol bnildiug, the federal
election bill might have been defeated
in tho house. Crain was infuriated
and entering the house pres3 gallery
to-day, he flourished his revolver
excitedly, and called for Moore. The
newspaper men scattered in all direc
tions, and took refuge behind chairs,
under tables and various other havens
of safety. Crain was unable to find
Moore who was iu New York. When
they meet there may be another con
gressman's death by a correspondent's
bullet to record, as Moore is reported
to be a crack shot, and will not
retract what he has said.

"This was the most successful ascen

Nr.w Yokk, July IS. At 7 o'clock
this morning fire was discovered in
the upper stories of the Western Un
ion Telegraph Co.
It was first seen by messenger
Matthews, and appears to have orig
inated under a table in the checking
department on the sixth Aoor.
The operating rooms were, fortu
nately, almost empty, but few of the
operators haviug come iulo the build
ing. There wore not more than fifty
men and women in the operating
room when the lire v.n first dis
covered. No sooner had Matthews given the
alarm than the fire appeared to spread
in every direction. To get to tho
street it was necessary for those in
the operating room to go through the
checking department, and pursued by
the Harass the shrieking employees
ran for their lives. After gainiug the
street they remembered that a few in
the restaurant on the seventh floor
had not been warned, but it was im
possible to return. Suddenly they ap
peared, seven in number, on the roof.
By this time the firemen had ar
rived and by getting ladders on ad
joiniug roofs they got ropes to the
frenzied seven on the roof of the
burning bnildiug, and loworod them
safely to the gronnd.
The Associated Press is the heaviest
loser. It loses nearly all its instru
ments, typewriters, furniture, and all
its books, papers and records, dating
from 1813, and a valuable library.
The loss is irreparable. All of the
material for the history of tho growth
of the press in America, contained in
letters, books and files, was destroyed.
The money value is 150,000, on
which there was no insurance.
Hon. William Henry Smith, general
manager, is personally a heavy loser
by the destruction of the rare" liooks
and papers, many of which cannot be
duplicated. Among those were hun
dreds of pamphlets collected in Eu
rope, which Smith supposed were
secure in this fire proof building.
Extensive corresjioudence of great
value was consumed. A survey has
been made of the upper portions of
the bnilding. It was fouud that the
cables and pneumatic tubes were in
tact, and will soon be available for
General Eckert, the vice-president
of the W. TJ. T. Co., is of the opinion
that the loss of the com pan v will not
much exceed S100.000. He also be
lieved they will be able to employ a
considerable force iu tho main hall
ways, in n day or two. Already new
switch boards are on the way from
Philadelphia. The Assocmted Press
will use the executive room on the
fifth floor, and such other rooms as
can be had in the neighborhood. The
old Baltimore & Ohio Telegraph com
pany's building at 41-1 Broadway, will
bo used as temporary quarters. The
Western Union has a large force of
linemen at work, and one hundred
wires will be ready for use to-morrow.
Tho loss to tho biuldingaud fixtures
is estimated at S250.000. The fire is
supposed to have been caused by an
electric light wire.

A'rcmsoN, Ivans.. July 18. -There
was a Case of cholera iu this city yes

Bishop, wife of a well known citizen.
She died within twenty-four hours
after the commencement of the attack.
Two prominent physicians pronounced
it a case undoubtedly of Asiatic
A Well Gioumlnl Fear.
The recent and sudden death of
Capt James Strang, while piloting a
steamer to Astoria, brings homo to us
the fact, that had this accident oc
curred at night, on one of our pas
senger steamers, where generalliy only
one man is in the pilot house, it might
have occasioued a great loss of life.
Before it would probably be noticed
that anything was wrong the steamer
would lc aground, or what would be
immeasurably worse, striko some of
the precipitous banks and drown
every tonl aboard.
Some four years ago a pilot on one
of the Hudson fern' boats plying be
tween New York aud Brooklyn,
dropped dead at his po3t, unobserved.
The first iutimation the passengers
had that anything was wrong was the
banging of the vessel against the slip
and the drowning of several pas
sengers. Other accidents of a similar
nature followed iu close succession
until the New York legislature has
passed an act making it a highly
criminal offense for a pilot to be left
aloneiu the pilot house.
This is a matter that may seem of
little importance to some, but when we
take into consideration the number of
lives that are entrusted to one man, it
is right the law should guarantee the
passengers every precaution for their
safety, while under the care of trans
portation companies.
We would like to see our represen
tative take this matter up and seo if
a bill could not be passed in the
Washington legislature, similar to the
one now in force in New York state.
The measure could exempt all but
passenger steamers from this proviso,
if it were thought necessary, as the
loss of life Jrom this cause on small
tugs and freight boats i3 rednced to a
Taking everything into considera

City of Mexico, July 18. The
state of Salvador continues in a
stato of anarchy. General Ezeta has
within the past week, raised a forced
loan among thepeoplo of Salvador,
creating great disconcert and adding
materially to his unpopularity, which
tho opposition aro using to their ad
vantage. Ezeta has a largo force massed on
the border of Guatemala and it is be
lieved that it is the intention to invado
that country.
Tho last named republic also has
several thousand men under arms on
the Salvador frontier, ready to repeal
any attempted invasion. It is said
that the armies aro not far distant
from each other, and a conflict may
bo expected any moment.
President Barrilla3 in his proclama
tion issued June 29th, explains the
position of Guatemala Iu speaking
of the refusal of Guatemala to recog
nize the Ezeta government, Barrill as
"He ha3 not recognized the order of
things established in Salvador, be
cause it is tno product of odious
strategy, fit for all dark ages. To the
fate oC Salvador, we cannot be indif

leagued to us by solemn stipulations
of union. The people are the most
honorable and industrious of Central
America. Its destinies are the same
that are prospective for all the Central
Americau isthmus.
"With these precedents, aud
Salvador being the boundary stato
whose events, prosperous or otherwise,
are always reflected in Guatemala,
my government should be watchful
for peace, should be vigilant for our
interests, and should tako measures
as far as consistent, to put down an
anarchy and confusion in the neigh
boring stites, which form a danger
for the generous people of Salvador,
and a menace to all Central America.
"It is for that reason my govern
ment has placed a corp3 of observa
tion on the frontier. It is for that
reason that, acting for the well being
of all, and specially on behalf of the
people of Salvador, who30 real rights

Port Townsend, Wash., July IS.
Admiral Charles F. Holhom, who
arrived at Victoria yesterday on H.
M. S. warship War Sprite, to-day
submitted to au interview with Perry
Goldstone, who was sent to this city
by the New York World. Ho told
the reporter, although when he left
England in March, the Behring sea
question had been discussed to some
extent in foreign oflices, he had heard
little or nothing on the subject at the
admiralty, and said to his understand
ing of the matter, tho cause of the
United States is untenable.
This feeling no doubt expresses the
feeling of the government officials at
London. He further said that he was
satisfied that tho procedure of the
United States revenue cutters .in
stripping seized vessels of their navy
was wrong. In fact it was a pro
ceedure without precedent, and that
is he understood that this year, tho
vessels wcro to be stripped not only of
their cargo but of their hunting par
aphernalia, papers, provisions, etc.
He felt sure that was a very wrong
This opinion it may be taken for
granted, it is a reflex of the policy of
the homo department When asked
if any instructions had been received
tosend any vessel to Behring sea, he
said that there had not, that is as far
as he knew, but there was a huge
pile of telegrams and oflicial lettera
unopened on his table, which ho
thought might contain instructions on
the subject
The only order ho had auy cogniz
ance of was one issued about two
years ago, which was to the effect that
it "might be necessary to send a vessel
to Behring sea to protect British com
merce," and he significantly added:
"Vessels of this squadron are ready at
any time."
The reporter says that from his
record for achievements in naval war
fare, and from the impressious of visit
ing newspaper men, he is satisfied the
Victorians, and especially the sealing
men, havo great confidence iu their
new admiral. One said there is no
doubt now that tho rights of Britisb
sealers will bo protected, and it is
probable that in case of the news of
theseizureof a British sealing schooner
either the Amphion or Champion
will bo sent north.

Special toTnEAsToarAx.l
PortijAnd, Or., July IS. For some
time past various Chinese firms of this
city, have been annoyed by a man
who represented himself as being au
inspector in the United States custom
houso service. Ho would walk into a
China store and pull out a long piece
of paper, and show it as his authority;
then he would state that ho had posi

wa3 concealed about the premises.
Therenpon without further ceremony,
he would wade through the shelves
and drawers, and help himself to all
the opium in sight This he would
carry away, telling the owners that it
would be taken to tho customs honse.
About a week ago tho same indi
vidual entered the store of Bow Lnng
& Co., and took seventeen cans of the
drug, and in addition stole several
dollars from tho proprietor, whom he
held up in regular stage-coach style.

house early next morning, and asked

he learned how he had been

slender young man entered the store

store. While the impersonator of the
majesty of tho law was wading

messenger was on the wing for a po
lice officer, who arrested the intruder.
He was taken to the police jail where
he gave the name of Arthur Hennessy.
