SAN FRANCISCO , A nig. 23. General An
tonio Ezeta and Ills fellow refugees arc pris
oners at last by authority of the Unltcii
States cJIstrlct court. tlie warrants of ar
rest were served this afternoon. Earlly
tills morning the local federal officials re
ceived notification that the differences be
tween the Navy department and the ! ) . -
partmont of Justice ImH been compromised ,
at least In a measure , and that the nauil
authorities of Mara Island would permit
the United States marshal to nerve the. war
rant ! ! . The Navy dcpirimcnt maintained
Us position on one point , however. It would
not furnish transportation for the marshal
and his deputies to the cunboat. The mar
shal , too , was determined to uphold Hie
department of the government which lie
represents. Ho refused to charter a tine ,
and there seined a possibility that tlio
refugees would be left to dto of old age an
the high seas. lr. ) CalEeron , the local consul
of the Salvadorean government , finally Inter
ceded , however , and prevented any serious
rupture between these clashing dcpartmctils
of the United States government. lid wtnt
into his own purse for money and char
tered a tug. At C o'clock this morning ILiu
tug steamed out through the heads. ( On
board were Consul Culcleron , United Statics
Marshal Baldwin , four deputy United Stales
marshals and Lletitemirat Stoney , U. S. N. ,
who went as a representative of the author
ity of the Mara Inland -naval - station to cer
tify to Marshal Baldwin as a reprcsenttn-
tlve of the United Startes government , and
to permit Commander Thomas of the Hen-
nlngton to receive the marshal und his depu
ties on bonrd. The t K. which , singularly
enough , wns named I Die "Hellef , " arrived
alongside the llennlnston about 9 o'clock
In the inornlns.
After the formalttlc'i necessary to fully
sustain the dignity of ttlie Navy department
were over , Marshal Uahlwln and his depuLIrs
went on board the unntioat. The tugboat
Hellef then steamed am ay , heading fcr I Ma
port. Immediately afterwards the Dcrinlmg-
ton's --ihars were hoisted. She hud teen
lylnc ui anchor near ( the Faralone Islands ,
about thirty miles from port. A few min
utes later the HcnnlnKton was steaming
toward San l-'ranclsco bay , but as one ol
her engines Is disable ! , she mudu only s'low
progresn. At 2 o'clock this afternoon the
Rznnltmton steamed Inn through the GoMcn
Gate. That the refugees arc now under
airest there Is no doullt , for Marshal Baldwin
and his deputies went on board the gunboat
for the purpose of Lining them prisoners
when the lleiinlnctoii should have passed
within the three-mile limit.

The ncnnlnKton passed up the buy nnc

She comes froiruu port infested with yellow
fever. The health olltesr was notified of hoi
arrival. This fact Boron gave rise to a re
port along the water front that the gun
boat has twenty-three * cases of yellow fcvci
on board. Ncltht-r L.lentonant Stoney noi
Consul Calderon would verify or contrwllci
the report or say an ) thing about the nrres
of the refugees. The yellow fever yarn finds

NHW ORLEANS , Aug. 23. A Blucflclds ,
N.caras a , letter to the Associated press ,
via New Orleans , which arrived tonight ,
Shortly lefore noon on the IGth a most
outrageous move en ithe port of the Nlca-
raguans wns made public. The greater part
of the troops were to sail nt 7 o'clock In the
evening on the Yuli , a coasting steamer ,
nnd Mlnlslcr Madrlz decided to send wllh
them those persons whom he thought wire
guilty of firing on the Nlcaraguan fine ,
Early in the morning1 Ccnsul Hqtch , the
British representative' , was sent for , and
when he responded to the call he wasplaced
In a room as a prlwmer. This mo\o vi.is
kept very quiet , and as he was not allowed
to communicate with the outsldo no one
knew ol Ibis arrest for Imrs. About 11
o'clock , when a Mr. Lampton called at the
building to secure permission to have cer
tain freights released , lie also wns placed
under -arrest. Then Mr. Henry Brown , an
englishman , called to assist Mr. Lampton In
getting the freight , when he too was ar
rested. Their next move wns against Cap
tain C. \Vlltbanks , the American who
accepted the poultlcti , . as judge under the
MosqulU rule. H. C Ingram , J. 0. Tliomas ,
H. A. Hoilfioson , Washington Glover. JcTin
Kyler and George Hodgcson , all Mosquito
Creoles , were arrested. After these men
were detained on hour OT more the Ameri
cans In the ne ghborh&od were attracted
by the signs they made from the windows.
The English olllccrs statlcncd on shore as
usual went to the building to learn the
cause of Hatch's absence and were told they
were nde-r arrest. Mr Hatch dropped a
paper from the side window telling of Ihis
arrest nnd tne desire ct the Spaniards to
take him and hta companions to Nicaragua.
A boat wa.s Immediately sent to the English
cruiser and the news distributed along the
foreign quarter. Consul Zeat of the United
States -\vts \ notified end called on Mndrlz.
The latter said these persons were to go to
ho Interior to stand trial. Ho could not Ret
: nough. evidence to convict them n&w , but
: ie was sure they were Implicated. Ccn.su !
cat then dispatched wcrd to the Columbia ,
nd by 2 30 o'clock the- tug was steaming
.awards Oie blufi' .
Wiiat the charges arc Madrlz does not
say. He has not even Informed the Ameri
can tier the English consul. The English
consul. It Is believed , la charged with Itav-
ng Incited the Jamaican's to riot nnfl blood
shed. The owners of tlie Yula. when told
of the arrest , positively stated that their
boat should not leave , and thus Uie only
transport which can sUn.l the sea U taken
away from them. It Is , of course , useless
for these NIcaraguans to cause the arrc&t , fet
even should Captalh Sutnner submit to the
actions of Madrlz , the American population
would demand the release of Innocent men
by force of arms If Tieccssary. However , the
commander of the Columbia Is expected be
fore iiicht and tlie English also. Vher
speaking to General Lacayo just after the
news was made public , It was learned that
Madrlz had taken these steps upon hta owr
advice. It was not legal to take these mrr
to Managua , said Lic.iyo , and lie couK
show It Jn the laws of Nicaragua. Such c
move on the part of the NIcaraguans. comlnf
as It does after three Insults 'to the Ainerl'
can flag , deserves the most severe action
and 1C eier naval officers were called iipoi
to exert their autliorlty , the time has ar
rived to do to. The American populstlcr
Is greatly excited , and -were It not that thcj
have confidence In their country's agcnts tin
bullet rlildled buildings would suffer anothei
attack , Ibut this lime someone would b (
severely hurt. The situation Is serious , foi
no one feels safe , but It Is hoped tlia
Nicaragua will be taught a lesson that wll
not be forgotten by the men on ( ho Mohawl
and Columbia. _

The movement Is , In fact , nothing more
nan a revival of the ancient 'know-nothing'

ot without Its effect upon our politics. The
epubllcan party hag ever bem outspoken
ipon every public question , and has alwajs
