Legitime Losing the Confldenoof
the People The Haytien
Nkw Yk, Pec. 17. The steamer
Saginaw arrived today from Hayti, and
it is learned that th iicajner Ilajtien
Itepuhlic was still in the harhor of Port-au-Prinee
when the Saginaw sailed.
Passengera by the Saginaw state that on
the morning of the 5th five of Legitime's
men-of-wai-, the Dossal incs. Belize, Tous
saint, IO vert ure and one other, bom
banled Cape Hayti. The foreign consuls
in the city, before the beginning of the
bombardment, sent out a petition to the
commander of the tiet asking time to
fret out of the city. They were given
thirty-six hours to evacuate the town,
The people fled into the hills, taking all
the possessions they could conveniently
carry, the supply of pack mules being
limited to fifty or sixty. The animals
were in great demand, and fabulous prices
were paid to convey a tingle mule load
to places of safety.
Shortly after daybreak on the second
day after the arrival of the fleet the Hay
tien officers trained tluir guns on the
town and the bombardment commenced.
In a few minutes the shot began to tear
through the town, demoralizing the frail
structures. The bampoo huts succumbed
tfcsily, but the stone buildings in the
central and more elevated portion of the
town were not bo easily destroyed, the
heavy walls resisting the fire for several
hours. Despite the warning tiiey had re
ceived to leave tho fated town, many
residents clung to their habitations, Jn
fact, it was impossible to remove the sick
in the city within the time allowed. On
! the top of all of the houses in which sick
persons were known to be white flags
were placed, but shot and shell were no
respectors of the appealing emblems.
None of the people who arrived today
could estimate with any degree of accu
raey the number of killed, but it was
thought that fifteen or twenty at least
succomed to the fire. Legitime is by de
grees losing the confidence of the people,
and most all the sympathy is with the
The agents in New York of the steam
ship Haytien republic are much surprised
at the report that their vessel will sail
from Hayti in charge of an American
crew which sailed from here last week on
the Atlas line ship Galena, to be delivered
at an American port subject to the dis
posal of this government, Mr. Austin,
one of the agents, says: "I don't see why
Hayti or the Atlas people gain by this,
an-l I doubt very much whether they can
bring the Haytien Republic up here.
She has no stores, no fuel, nor anything
dse on board, and must be in a bad
The steamer Haytien Republic will
leave Port-au-Prince tomorrow morning
flying the American flag, manned by an
American crew and bound for New York.
Chas. W. Brooks, council for the Atlas
Steamship company, said: "The crew
which was at Hayti to accomplish tfiis
result was forwarded with the full
knowledge, consent and connivance of
Minister Preston and General Contreras
nor has there been any unnecessary con
cealment in this matter so far as my
clients are conserned. And had the
United States naval authorities been pos
sessed of a full acquaintance with the
maratime laws conserning the shipment
of crews to foreigh ports, they would
not have found it necessary to drag the
Galena out of the mud."

It matters very little what the demo
crats may do in regar 1 to admitting new
states. The republicans will pooh be in
power and absolute control of the subject
and will admit every t-rritory that has a
right to become a state which can give
assurance thst it will help to re-elect
Jlarpspn and Morton. j
The leading bankers of New York
who haye been interviewed on the ques
tion say they do not believe that the
bursting of the Panama Canal bubble
will affect business in the United States.
It will undoubtedly be felt in most of
the financial centers of Europe, however,
although, as it has been expected for the
past year or more, the effect will be far
less severe than if it were to come un
heralded. The principal sufferer, of
course, will be France, as nearly all the
money sunk in the scheme has been fur
nished by that country. Globe Dem.

A iiEWSPAVKn published at the capi
tal of New Mexico says editorially: "Why
should the English language not be
taught in the public schools of New
Mexico? That is the question." Yet
the democrats in congress demand that
this territory shall be admitted t state
hood, and threaten to adhere to tho om
tubus bill which virtually iiefw ad
mission a condition of their agreeing to
admit any of tha other territories that
are ready to become states. They believe
they have a sure thing for thur party on
New Mexico, and the above question
rexplains why. Bee.
