Presence of the United States Man-of
War Insures a .Jufet Election for
Peru-Big Petroleum Blaze Subdued
Lima , Peru , June 3.-Owing to the
presence of the United States man-of-
war Monterey , which has been lying off
the coast for several days , the elections
will pass off quietly. The election 1s to
choose a constitutional government in
place of the provincial government recently -
cently selected through the Intervention -
tion of the papal nuncio after the success -
cess of the revolutionists. Indications
already point to a return of stable government -
ernment , with a revival of American
financial Interests. The citizens of Lima
are of the opinion that if the Monterey
had been in Peru during the revolution -
tion , when the Insurgents captured the
city , plundered dwellings and left the
dead unburied In the streets for two
days , its presence would have averted
these scenes of slaughter and the attendant -
tendant paralysis of commercial inter-
ests. The arrival of the Monterey was
greeted with wild enthusiasm.
Moraes' Government Assert that the Marines -
rines Invaded Neutral Territory.
Rio Janeiro , June 3.--The Official
Gazette asserts that a fight took place

on May 15. Lieutenant Lumier ordered

latter resisted and shot Lumier. The
French force advanced and burned the
village of Cabralo , but the Brazilians
returned and compelled the French to
retire. Two Brazilians and one Portuguese -
guese were taken prisoners by the retreating -
treating troops.
The Brazilian government declares
that the French had no right to invade
neutral territory. The episode , taken
together with the many other foreign
complications , may cause the resignation -
tion of the minister of foreign affairs ,
General Carvalho. The French minister -
ter has been ordered to make an energetic -
ergetic protest.
Harburg Fire Is Subdued.
Harburg , June 3.-The great petroleum -
troleum fire which broke out at Har-
burg , six miles from here , at the works
of the Bremen Trading company , destroyed -
stroyed five tanks of oil and a great
deal of other property , has been mastered -
tered , although the inner tanks are still
blazing. The damage done is estimated
to amount to $500,000. During the fire
huge mounds of earth were thrown up
around the burning tanks , thus preventing -
venting the flames from spreading to
the adjoining factories and houses.
The Guiser factory and the American
company's petroleum depot were saved ,
as the wind drove the flames in the direction -
rection of the Elbe.

1Ier Captain Makes a Statement as to
the Collision with the Norman.
Alpena , Mich.June 3.-The Canadian -
dian steamer Jack , which collided with
and sank the steel steamer Norman
yesterday morning , is now sunk at
False Presque Isle. Her stern is in
twenty-four feet of water and her bow
in nineteen feet. The forward end of
the boat is badly stoC in , the decks
split and the timbers parted from the
stem by at least eight inches. She may
le , raised. There . is no insurance on
+ roa -
boat or cargo. - - - - - .
The stateil ents of the captains of the
Norman , Jack and Sicken all agree that
there were many boats in the vicinity
of the wreck , and that all were blowing -
ing their whistles. This may account
for the difference in regard to the whistle -
tle signals said to have been given and
received by the Norman. The latter
was without cargo , and her bridge was
high in the air , enabling her captain
to see the Jack's light over the fog.
The Jack was low down , which probably -
ably accounts for her not seeing the
Norman until close to her. The Norman - '
man sank in about 1S0 feet of water.
Nothing has been seen of the bodies of
those drowned.
Mrs. Martha 3r. Elms of Minneapolis
Kills lrcr Daughter and herself.
Minneapolis , Minn. , JuneA
strange case of murder and suicide occurred -
curred at an early hour this morning.
Mrs. Martha M. Elias and her daughter
Annie were found weltering in their own
blood in their rooms on Nicolett ave-
nue. The old lady had evidently shot
the girl as she slept , and then turned
the revolver on herself , blowing the
whole top of her head off. They were
well-to-do , and the only apparent
cause for the tragedy lies in the supposition -
position that Mrs. Elias' mind. had been
affected by the violent death of her husband -
band seven years ago.
. Mrs. Gresham to Live In Chicago.
Washington , June 3.-It is announced

cago. As Secretary Gresham has no
real property here , it is believed his
will will not be submitted for probate
in Washington.

The Scranton postoffice was robbed
last August , during the absence of
Postmaster Vanding and his assistant
at the noon hour. The thieves entered
the vault by the inner steel door and
took away over $8,300 worth of postage
stamps in their original packages. On
Dec. 3 the postofflce in Hoboken was
entered during the absence of Postmaster -
master Curran and $6,561 North of postage -
age stamps were taken. On April 3
last the postoffice in Springfield , Ill. ,
was robbed and upward of $6,000 worth
of postage stamps taken. In this case
also there was no forcing of doors. It
was sneak thieving , pure and sitnple.
"We know from our previous experl-
ence , " said Inspector Holden , "when we
began to investigate these cases , that
there were only twelve men in the United -
ed States who could do this kind of
work. They are scientific bank sneak
thieves. We have been scouring the
country for evidence and have spent
five months in following various clues.
The roundup became closer and closer
until me finally identified Killoran , Allen -
len and Russel as three of the postof-
flee thieves. "

slastic public meeting in the Academy ' '
of Music. The principal speakers of the
evening were : Ex-United States Senator -
ator George F. Edrr unds , ex-Comp-
traller of the Currency William L.
Trenholm , Congressman Michael D.
Harter , of Ohio , ex-Minister to Russia.
Charles Emory Smith , and Joseph
Rrharton. i
Mr. Edmunds said the sound money j
question must be decided by political'
action , not party action. The speaker-
discussed the variation in value of the- )
two metals. "If any faith can be put in. Lt
human experlence , " he said , "It ought
to teach us that we cannot make a.
given amount of silver worth any more
It Is printed at the mint with the , ,
stamp of the United States than it wad r
before. If the last congress had passed " : i
on March 3 , the last day of its session , ' ' '
what is no w vociferously demanded by
the free coinage people , every owner
and. producer of silver bullion would'
take his ounces of silver to the mint-
worth 63.43 cents-and get $1.29. And ,
having got more than two silver dol- I
Jars for his ounces of silver , he would' ;
come to the workingman to whom he I
owes for labor and say : 'If I had bought
it in metal it would have taken ten , , ' '
pounds ; but I have taken it to a benfi- I
cent United States office and had it ' . I
stamped and you must take five pounds ! ' I

Trenholm said : .By 1. i
general admission the gold idea and the '
silver idea are irreconcilable. A decisIon -
Ion as , to which Is the right one can .
only be reached by reasoning predicated' I
upon the facts and guided by logic. The- , i
principle of a definite and unchangeable -
able monetary unit guided ' us to'i '
resumption in 1879 , and since then it has / °
secured for us ultimate safety in all the- } f
viclssitudest of business and all the
commercial and financial panics that ! =
have swept over our country. " f
Congressman Harter argued that am
abundance of money did not always m
prevent commercial and business de-
pression. On the contrary , he urged ,
some of our financial panics had come
at a time when money was redundant.
Charles Emory Smth spoke on "The
Workingman's Interests. "
Mrs. Notson'6 Leave of Absence. i
OMAHA , May 30.-I desire to state
that Mrs. Notson secured leave of absence -
sence from her school in August before
she had ever seen Mr. Corbett or corn- I
municated with him at all. After his
election she asked me to write him a
letter in her behalf. At that time she
distinctly told me that he had never
promised to appoint her as his deputy ,
but that she most earnestly desired the
position , and I inferred from what she
said that she thought she had earned it
from the party. I have it from the
gentlemen themselves that she told
two others precisely what she told me
-that Mr. Corbett had never promised.
her the deputyship. From all her conversation -
versation with me , it appeared that she
simply'hoped to induce him to appoint t
her , although he had made no promise
Mr. Corbett was the choice of the
people of this state , is filling an important -
portant office with credit to himself I
and to the advantage of the schools of , ,
the state. There is certainly nothing }
in thismatter which should call for his " j
condemnation or for the withdrawal
from him of public confidence.
A. I' 1LAurr.E ,
Superintendent of Omaha Public
LINCOLN , Stay 30.-I entirely concur
in Superintendent Marble's conclu-
sions. From all the information obtainable -
tainable , there certainly seems a strong I
injustice in attempting to make Superintendent -
intendent Corbett at all accountable
for Mrs. Nottson's death '
Chancellor University of Nebraska.
Crisp Favors Free Coinage.
Atlanta , Ga. , May 30.-Speaker Crisp ,
puts a quietus on the discussion of his '
views on the financial question in the
following card given out for publication -
tion : "Ever since I gave consideration
to the question I have been a believer
in and an advocate of the free and unlimited -
limited coinage of silver. " ' m
Municipal League Convention.
Cleveland , May 30.-The Municipal
League convention was called to order
this afternoon. There are a large number -
ber of delegates in town and more are
arriving on every train. Prior to the '
opening of the convention the board of
delegates held a business session. The
feature of the proceedings was a paper
by Clinton Rodgers Woodruff , secretary

Oootatlons from New York , Chicago , St.
