TALE OF THE PANAMA
A Tankee Captain Defies the Prcsi
dent of San Salvador.
WOULD NOT BE BLUFFED.
CmIi'i High-Handed Attempt to Seize
a Paclfle Mail Steamer by Fore
Very Cleverly Foiled by
San Jose de Guatemala. Sept. 1.
An incident occurred at La Libertad.
in the Republic of Salvador, ten days
ago, which bore some resemblance to the
Barrundia affair, which happened on the
steamer Acapulco in San Jose de Guate
mala during the late war between Sal
vador and Guatemala. One of the par
ties concerned in the case, however, was
an American citizen. The Pacific Mail
steamship, the coast steamer City of
Panama, stopped at Corinta, Nicaragua,
Aug. 5, on her regular north-bound trip
and among the passengers on board
were Patrick Brennan, an American
citizen residing in Salvador, and four
native Salvadoreans, all former officer;
of that government. These men .had
incurred the displeasure of President
Ezeta, and were regarded by him as
revolutionists. The steamer reached
La Libertad Aug. 8 and Ezeta's officers
demanded the surrender of Brennan
and his companions. Captain White
refused to comply and the commandant
of the port went to the steamer with a
roatload of armed men and informed
Captain White that the latter con Id
consider himself under his orders, as he
had come to takefpossession of the steamr
er ana arrest the men. Uaptam White s
indignation was aroused at once and
without waiting to discuss the matter
at all he told the commandant
that if he did not leave the steamer im
mediately he would throw him over
board. The commandant ' evidently
perceived that uaptain white was dis
posed to carry out his threat, for
he withdrew from the steamer
without further discusssion.
A short time before the steamer sailed
Captain White was informed that Pres
ident Lzeta bad been notified of the oc
currence and had gone with an armed
force to Acajutla, the next port in Sal
vador, intending to take off the refu
gees at all hazards. Captain White ac
cordingly determined not to go to Aca
jutla: and on arrival at San Jose, Gua
temala, laid the facts before United
Mates Minister Pacheco, lhe men
whom Ezeta desired to capture are now
in Guatemala territory, and Ezeta has
requested lioatemala to surrender them.
The exact details of the charges made
agaiust the men are not known here.

A SOCIAL EVENT.
Hra. llobert Garrett Give a Grand
Newport, R. I., Sept. 1. One of the
last balls of the season was given by
Mrs. Robert Garrett, at the cottage (ha
is now occupying off Narragansett
avenue. Following, as the ball does,
after many brilliant ones, thought of
extra course, was necessarily given to the
decorations, for no one likes to repro
duce a decoration, however fine it may
be. There being no ball room attached
to the cottage, one had to be erected
tor the occasion, and so, to the sooth of
the house on the lawn was laid a hard
pine floor, finely polished, 45x50 feet,
and this was covered with a tent-like
structure, the interior of which afforded
much chance for decoration. The roof
and sides were covered with white mull
and yellow paneling of the same ma
terial, each panel being decorated with
floral ornamentations. Besides this,
on the sides were hung festoons of fine
flowers, forming a border above the
panels. This scheme of decorations
was carried on three sides of the impro
vised ball room, but the cottage formed
the north side and here all the windows
were taken out and the whole side cov
ered with oak branches in the leaf, out
of which appeared a sprinkling of flow
ers. In front of this were set ferns and
potted plants. Steps were placed to the
windbws. The supports to the roof of
tent were covered with festoons of lau
rels, and in the festoons were man
little electric lights, covered with van
ous covered tissues, which softened the
lights and cast many colored beams
upon the dancers.

Th Public Dabt Statement. .
Washington, Sept 1. The prosecu
tion of the trusts and monopolies is be
ing earnestly considered by nearly all
the district attorneys in the United
States. The instructions given by At
torney General Miller to collect evidence
and prepare cases have resulted in a
large correspondence between district
attorneys and the department of justice
on the subject. No case can be formal
ly begun until the courts are in session
in the autumn, but It is notable that
some of the big trusts like the Standard
Oii and dressed beef trust will find
themselves presented to the grand jury
for violation of the anti-trust act of the
There are two more methods pre
scribed by the law for breaking up the
trusts a bill in equity to restrain the
trusts by injunction and a criminal
prosecution of those engaged in it. Th
bill in equity was tried in the Tennes
see case, which was decided in the
spring in favor of the government and
this method will probably be employed
against most of the other trusts. Such
bills in equity have to be submitted to
the attorney general for his signature,
and this gives him an Opportunity to
examine the facts and consider the case.
Thus far there has been no call on the
district attorney for assistance in mak
ing up cases. But such assistance will
probably be needed in fighting the
greater trusts if the cases are pressed to
a conclusion. ;
Four and Half Per Cents . i i '
Washington, Sept. L The amount of
H per cent, bonds continued at S per
cent, was $491,850, making a total to
date of $I.J3, 82 1,650. This leaves about
$26,000,000 4 per cents outstanding. It
is impossible at present, however, to
make any definite estimate as to the
amount of these that will be presented
for redemption, especially as the time
within which they may be continued at
2 per cent, is to be , extended beyond
September Si for a period not yet fixed.
Secretary Foster said that he thought
that between $20,000,000 and $25,000,000
4 per cents will be presented for re

said, as it would force that much money
into circulation at a time when there
is great need of it in 'moving' the crops.
The disbursement of this sum of money,
the secretary said, will not embarrass

$106,000,000 available, including dis
bursing officers' balances, and exclusive
of the $100,000,000 gold reserve.
