Likelihood of a Spilt In the National
jACK-tOHVXXXS r 11a.), June 25. — A
Jackson. Miss., special to tho Times
-,i gives some interesting gossip about
kmal Farmers' Alliance matters. It
nays that since the nomination of the
Legislative Committee, headed by Presi
ient Hall of the Missouri Alliance, last
February, Ilall has been working vigor
v against the Sub-Treasury scheme,
and with his coadjutors has succeeded in
organizing a movement covering tbe
entire Southern States, as is shown by
the call for a meeting of tho Anti-Sub-
Treasury League at Dallas, Texas, In
July next. "Within the last month Presi^
dent Polk has advised Hall to desist or
resign from tho committee. He was
given until Juno 25th to reply. It is
believed this is a decisive stroke to
frustrate the objects of tho Anti-Sub-
Treasury League and infiueuco tho less
intrepid opponents of the measure than
Hall to steer clear of tbe Dallas meeting.
Thoso who know Hall assert that he will
decline to be coerced, aud the result will
be a split in the National Alliance.
Clash Between tho Treasury Depart
ment and United states Court.
Detroit, June 25.—There is a clash
here between the Treasury Department
and the United Statos Court in regard to
tbe three Chinamen arrested here. Yes
terday Customs Collector Hopkins re
ceived an order from tho Treasury De
partment to ship three Chinamen to San
Francisco, where they are to be. taken in
charge and deported to China. It will be
necessary to havo the court declare that
the Chinamen do not belong to this
country before this can bo done. If the
court interprets the law, which reads,
"They shall be returned to the country
from whence they come," to mean tliey
are to bo returned to the country from
which they immediately came, and not
tlieir native couutry, it is liable to order
them to be returned to Canada. Even if
tho Commissioner orders the Celestials to
be returned to tlieir native country, they
can appeal to the Circuit Conrt.

N BW Lonpon (Conn.), Juno 25.—One of
the most exciting races ever rowed on
lthe Thames River took place this after-
I noon over a three-mile course between
the Cornell, University of Pennsylvania
and Columbia University eight-oared
crews. Cornell won after a hard contest
in the fast time of 14:27*, tbo University
of Pennsylvania second by four lengths
j in 14:45 and Columbia a bad third, being
five lengths behind the Pennsylvania
| crew and nine lengths behind Cornell.
Cornell's timo establishes a now record,
j the previous best time being 14:43, over
j the same course, by the samo crew last
Tbo surprise of the day was tho^unex
peeted poor showing made by the Colum

been reached, and for two miles it was
impossible to name the winner.
The conditions for the fast time were
excellent. The water was smqQth, a
i strong current running and tho wind
j also assisting.
Pennsylvania got the best of the start,
I and their boat about jumped a few feot
| to the front, with Cornell second, whilo
i Columbia, besides making a poor start,
seemed to lose at every stroke. In tho
first ten or twelve strokes Cornell's boat
j shot up even with Pennsylvania. For
an eighth of a mile they were so close
that the lead could not fairly be credited
to either crew.
Nearing tho half-mile flag Pennsylva
nia forged nearly half a length ahead of
Cornell, with Columbia two lengths
behind, and hopelessly out oftho race.
About throe-quarters ofa miio from tho
start the Pennsylvanias increased their
lead to nearly a length. Cornell hero

At tho two-mile flag the Cornells
showed clear of the Pennsylvanias bow,
with Columbia five lengths behind Penn

another effort to regain the lead and suc

this effort was too much, and Cornell's
men, responding to a final call, hit their

from the Pennsylvanias, finishing a
strong winner, with Columbia at the rear

Upon entering the town .Mrs. o'Shea,
who is familiar with the place, and knew
the situation and the Registrar's office, re

the offlce herself.
Parnell appeared to be well and in
cheerful spirits, but occasionally threw
r.crvous glances around him, apparently
being somewhat anxious lest tho wedding
party be observed.
Mrs. O'Shea was in dark attire, and

a difficulty in connection with the license.

THK ROBERT AND MINNIE'S ARMS.
New York, June 25.—George A. Burt,
who was indicted at San Francisco for
shipping arms in the Robert and Minnie,
is in this city. Ho says. "I am here on
my way to Europe in behalf of certain
Bolivian interests, when I was stopped
by a messenger from my friends in Chile,
who asked that I send them a cargo of
guns. I for tho love I felt their cause, and
lor the personal friendship I folt for tbose
who sent me the telegram, stayed here. I
took a certain quantity of arms from
New York to San Francisco, and shipped
them to certain parties in Chile on the
Robert and Minnie. I made no secret of
the shipment, excepting I tried to keep
tho news of it away from an agent of Bal
maceda in this country for fear that one
of his ships would overhaul tho Rata and
steal the arms, as had been threatened.
"I believe I have violated no principle
of international law in what I have done.
During my superintendency of the Pan
ama Kailroad I was constantly called
upon to pass on the question of the right
of transshipment of arms. I mado an
especial study oi the question then, and
never have I knowingly violated any
neutrality laws. The count on which I
am indicted is the arming and equipping
ofthe Itata. I did not arm or equip the
Rata. I say these arm were for the use of
Chilean revolutionists, aud in my own
mind I believe thoy were, but I shipped
them to responsible persons in Chile, and
was told nothing about their ultimate
use. Of one thing lam certain, I did not
arm nor equip any vessel in a port of the
United States to prey upon commerce or
carry on war against a friendly power.
"The man who was put oh board the
Itata as a Deputy Marshal of the United
States was a private detective, who went
down from an agency in San Francisco.
This detective agency was employed by
representatives of Balmaceda in this
country. While the Itata was coaling a
dispatch came directing that sbe be held.
The United Stateß Marshal thon
wrote, on a letterhead of a hotel
where ho was staying, an order
for tho private detective mentioned
before to seize the Rata. The detective
went on board, but never took formal
possession ofthe ship. Furthermore, the
instructions of tho United States Marshal
were to detain the vessel, and not to seize
her. U the Itata had violated any law
of the United Statos, it is in sailing with
out ber clearance papers. For this she is
liable to a tine of 5500.
"A great deal has been said regarding
the people who furnished the money to
buy the arms which were shipped by the
Robert and Minnie. I probably know as
much about that as anybody, and assuro
you that the credits wero established in
Europe. No New York firm had any
hand in the matter."
