INDEMNITY FOR OUTRAGE.
Twonty Thousand Pound3 Exacted
from Guatemala by British War
ships. San Dieoo, February 1. Advices
wore rocoivod by tho Pari Go Mail
Steamship San Juan to-day regard
ing tho troublo at tho city of Gua
temala botweon natives and tho
English Minister. Tho San Juan
was at tho port of San Joso do Gua
temala for only two hours on Janu
ary 22d. Nothing was known of tho
troublo by tho steamer's officers un
til after her arrival at that port and
only disjointed accounts of tho affair
could bo obtained.
Tho British cruiser NjMiipho was
at San Joso on that date and her
officers visited tho San Juan, leaving
and recoiving letters. From thorn it
was learned that Minister Gosling's
oldest son, a boy about J 4 years old,
was visiting on tho coHeo plantation
of an Englishman named Harris,
who is very unpopular among tho
natives of his district and who on
several occasions has had serious
troublo. llarris and young Gosling
visited a fiesta at San Gcronimo on
tho night of December 21th and in
tho darkness thoy wore attacked by
natives, who attempted to kill liar- "
ris. In tho melee, accidentally or
intentionally, young Gosling was
stabbed and knocked down and in .
self dofenso shot his antagonist. Tho
latter died soon afterward. The boy
was dangerously hurt, but ho and
his companion escaped.
Subsequently tho bo- was arrested
for niurdor and placed in jail, from
which, at his father's urgent request,
ho was allowed to bo removed to tho
English Legation, where his wounds
were dressed. Tho relatives of tho
dead native wore furious, and pre
vailed upon a mob, which, it is alle
ged, included several police officers,
to accompan' them to the Minister's
house, where they attempted to
forco thoir way in and capture tho
bo3T. Minister Gosling and his ser
vants wore able, howover, to keep
them at baj.
A telegram was sent to tho com
manders of tho British cruisers Mol
pomone and Xymphe, then stationed
at Acapulco, and in three days tho
rsyinpjio was m in the harbor oi bail
Joso. Her commander, after a short
inquiry, demanded an apology for
tho insult to tho flag, threatening to
blockauo tho port. According to
one informant ho notified tho Guato-
mala Government that a claim for
20,000 jndennity.woultlbo .entered -urttis"
for tho injuries to" tfio"Miuislers son. ' -
Ho also wired despatches in English -;
to tho commanders of tho Warspito ";
and Melpomene at Acapulco, asking
for their cooporation. It is alleged
that the Guatemalan authorities
learned the contents of these dos- -
patchns and at once tendered tho '.
required apology, at tho same timo
quelling all open trouble.
By the 22d the matter had been
temporarily settled and tho com
mander of the Nymphe had visited
the capital and returned with Min- ;
ister Gosling and his son to tho' ves
sol. The Nymphe was to leave on
tho 23th for Acapulco, but it could
not lie learned whether or not Min
ister Gosliug intended to leave Guatemala.
Tho Burglar and Science.
It is appalling to learn from Mr.
Swan, tho English rival of Mr. Edi
son, that an electric blowpipe is now
available, by means of which a burg
lar, had ho a fort3-horso-power en
gine at command, could, in two or
three minutes, cut a holo through
tho strongest so-called "burglar
prooF' safe yet invented. Tho iron
molts away before tho blast like but
ter in a fryiug-pau, and tho process
is not onry swift but noiseless. The
makers of safes will have to doviso
some means of defying tho electric
blow-pipo. Tho center of the safo
might bo tilled with lirebrick, which
cannot bo molted even by electricity,
and a system of electric bolls would
bo useful. These might bo so con
trived that tho moment tho temper
ature of tho safo was raised by tho
blowpipe an alarm would lie sounded
far and near, and thus tiie safe-robber
would be caught in his own trap.
San Fruncisco Call.
A Word From tho Scotch.
Tho word "blatherskite" given by
Bartlott as an Americanism is of
Scottish origin. JJlathor, blether or
blither is found in all three forms
in innumerable places in the writ
ings of Scottish authors, meaning to
talk nonsonso, while skato, corrupt
ed into skito, is an untranslatable
term of contempt. Tho original
meaning, but little changed in the
present usage, is "one who talks
blustering nonsouso." Ohhwjo He
rald. Mountains of Salt.
Oh tho Colorado river are moun
tains of salt oxtending for miles.
Tho salt is so pure that a newspaper
can bo road through blocks of six
and eight inches. A single blast of
giant powder will blow out tons
and tons of it. It lias a layer of
sandHtono from two to eight feet
over it. When this is torn away tho
salt lies in full sight like a great
snow-drift. How deep it is nobody
knows. (Avion Courier.
