Three of Our Vessels Bonnd for South
MAY MEET AT VALPARAISO
rnder Order for Long Cruises, but on
ltor.Us Which Will Not Take Them
Out or Beach or Cable Com
anuuteatiou. New Yoek, Nov. 8. Tha corvette
Kearsage, under command of Captain
Horace Elmer, left her anchorage in the
East river for the West Indies. She is
bouud first for St. Thomas. Just where
she will sail then depends upon circum
stances. She is attached to the South
Atlantic squadron. Admiral Gherardi's
flagship, the Philadelphia, also 6tarted
for St. Thomas. The Philadelphia, it is
expected, will reach there as soon as the
Kearsage, and Captain Elmer will then
report to Admiral Gherardi. If the
Philadelphia be too late, Captain Elmer
will rejiort by eiible to the navy depart
ment. ' The Bitty ought to reach St.
Thomas next Sunday. Developments in
the Chili quarrel may lead to one or both
the vessels being ordered to Valparaiso.
If this be not necessary and if uo other
complications arise it is quite likely that
the Kearsage will follow the sailing
orders issued some weeks ago. These
are to cruise among the West Indies and
call at points touched by Columbus.
A naval officer, whose rank entitles
him to the confidence of Commandant
Ei-ben of the navy yard, said: "These
warships are not being ordered to Cliili
simply to scare somebody. It cost more
than $15,000 to fit out a ship for a voy
age of 14,000 miles, and they are not be
ing sent away merely to keep them mov
ing. Diplomacy forbids that a govern
ment should show its hand too strongly.
We Jiave seen the Petrel sailing from
cue navy yard ostensibly from China,
but there is cable communication to St.
Thomas, and to Gibraltar, at both of
which places she will touch. The Kear
sarge sailed for the West Indies, where
she also can be reached by cable, and or
dered to continue on to Valparaiso. The
Philadelphia sailed for St, Thomas.
Keep your eye on the navy department's
orders to these vessels within the next
two weeks, and see if some of them are
not ordered to follow the Yorktown and
Boston to Valparaiso, to say nothing of
the Chicago, Atlanta, Concord, Mainto
noiuali. and Bennington, still at the
Brooklyn yard. After election is over,
we may hear some interesting Chilian
news from Washington."
Admiral Brown's Orders.
, Washington, Nov. 3. Secretary Tracy
has niadeipublic,,the instructions sent
last spring to Admiral Brown, command
in? the Pacific squadron at the beginning
of, the Chilian disturbance. "These in
structions," Secretary Tracy said, "have
been rigorously adhered to throughout.
In no single instance have they been de
parted from. They prove conclusively
that the charges of partiality made by
the English newspapers are untruths,
and that they have been invented in
order to prejudice the Chilians against
the United States for commercial pur
poses." Montt Offered the Presidency.
London, Nov. 3. A dispatch to The
Times from Valparaiso says the presi
dency has been offered to Jorge Montt,
and that congress will re-open Nov, 18.

Washington, Nov. 3. General Tracy
said: "There is nothing new or alarming
in the Chilian business. Everything
will, I think, be satisfactorily settled.
This is the general impression in this
city. Our government, however, will
be as conciliatory as possible in conduct

Egan Is All Right.
Washington, Nov. 3. It is authorl-

Reversed the Decision.
Chicago, Nov. 3. On April last Spoon
si' Howell, a big lumber merchant of
this city, with branches at Omaha and
elsewhere, turned over his property to
the First National bank of this city to
which he was indebted to the amount
if $200,000. Later the North Wis
consin Lumber company brought
suit for $."0.!64, claiming that the
transaction withthe First National bank
was collusive and to the detriment of
outside creditors. Judge Brown, before
whom the case was tried, decided in
favor of the Wisconsin company. The
case was taken to the appellate court,
which reversed that decision. The de
cision is a set-back for creditors of the
First National bank.
Business Blocks Burned.
Macon, Ga., Nov. 3. Fire destroyed
the buildings on Cotton avenue occupied
by Carpet & Co., boots and shoes; Dady
& Co., dry goods, and T. W. White,

Mown Over a Cliff.
Denver, Nov. 3. While blasting rock

St. Pacl, Minn., Nov. 3. The Great
Northern railway company issued a
fpeciul bulletin announcing that there
was no further need for threshing outfits
in northern Minnesota and North Da
kota. Farmers with large crops in shock
have taken advantage of the favorablo
weather to stack tho grain. It Is now
comparatively safe and can be threshed
any time during the winter. A. C Lor
ing, general manager of one of the big
Minnesota mills, said: "Of the 500 cars
of wheat rocived in Minneapolis daily

Des Moines, Nov. 3. Interest in the

registration in some precincts in this

impossible to poll the vote before closing
at i o ciock. uemocrats taut or gerang
out a writ of injunction to restrain the
election board from closing the polls
earlier than the latest hour named in the

from leading cities show the existence of
the same feeling that is here. Demo
cratic leaders claim they hold the high
water mark of two years ago in the
river counties and they will make ma
terial gains in the interior. Members
of the Republican central committee are
equally sanguine and say there is no
doubt of Wheeler's election. They say

It appears that Blischknew
Betts in Brooklyn. As the story goes
more than a year ago Betts transferred
$100,000 to his wife. He says that Blisch

It is surmised that part of the $100,000
which Betts transferred to his wife was
given to Blisch and used in purchasing
the Eagle hotel. Blisch bought the ho

facilities as shown by the annual ad

Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 3. In the

The newspapers published the tact that

for the defense moved to have the pub
lishers committed for contempt. Tiie

for $15,000. The supreme court in its

judgments rendered in courts, and de
clares that no matter how prejudicial it
' may be to publish them at the time of trial
no violation or tno law is committed in

that that the reading of such informa

Bonds Declared Worthless.
St. Louis, Nov. 3. Judgo Thayer
handed down an important decision in
the case of the Farmers' Loan and Trust
Company of New York vs. the Forest
Park and Central Railroad company and
the St. Louis, Colorado and Kansas City
railroad, in which he declares an issue ef
$700,000 worth of bonds, $200,000 of
which were hold by the plaintiff, to be
void. The Forest Park and Central
railroad and the St. Louis and Kansas
City railway are the same, the Forest
Park road having been purchased by the
company, which is now a part of the At
chison, Topeka and Santa Fe system.
In 1882 the directors of the Forest Park
and Central railway decided to increase
their capital stock to $1,000,000, and to
issue bonds to the amount of $700,000.
The bonds were issued and $200,000
worth of them sold. Judge Thayer, in
his opinion, states that the law had not
been complied with in vital respects.
The court dismissed the bill asking for a
foreclosure of the mortgage.
Governor Buchanan Thoroughly Aroused
Chattanooga, Tenn., Nov. 8. Gov

had heard the news of the release of 200
! more prisoners at Oliver Springs. Ho
said lie had not exhausted au tne
resources at his command and was de
termined to break up the lawlessness and
bring the ringleaders to justice. He
had done all in his power by personal
influence before the legislature to se
cure relief for the miners, but while
he sympathized with them, he could not
uphold lawlessness. He will issue an
additional proclamation, offering a re
ward for the capture of the leaders of
the new mob.

Washington, Nov. 3. Second Auditor
Patterson, in his annual report to the
secretary of the treasury, suggests that

modified as to authorize the second
auditor to disallow claims for ar
, rears to pay a bounty in cases where the

ords of his office show that tho soldier or
heirs have received all they aro entitled
to under the law; provided that if tiie
claimants are dissatisfiod, they, within
six months, appeal to tho second comp

shall lie deemed final and conclusive, and
be subject to a revision only by congress
or the proper courts.
