Ban Francisco, Sept. 10. Tlio btiamer
City of Sydney, which arrh ed from Panama
and war oorts last night, brought news
of the rapture of Flormclo Bustamcnte,
one of Antonio Ezeta's favorite lieuten
ants, by the Sahadorean authorities. It
Is probable that before this time be has
Bustamcnte Is one of the men who
er Bennington, after escaping from Sal
vador subsequent to the downfall of the
the Ezeras. The refugees lay In Sala
dorean waters for several weeks after they
had taken refuge on the Bennington.
President Guitcrrez made repeated de
mands Tor their surrender, but the captain
refused to gh e them up.
Before the matter was settled with the
United States authorities, the Bennington
was ordered to San Francisco. The case
of the refugees was tried in the United
States court here and attracted world
wide attention at tho time. The result w as
that the United States refused to she up
the men. All but Ezeta left the city. 'When
last heard from Bustamente was in Mexico,
where he was said to be plotting for the
return of his chief to Salvador. Evidently
the authorities of the latter country had
their eyes on the monkey In the hole, as, the
refugees were known, and were only
waiting an opportunity to pounce upon
VIOLATION' OF LAW.
The arrest of Bustamcnte, if precedents
count for anything, is a direct violation of
International law, and the turbulent'little
Central American republic will probably be
piled to account for its high-handed action
by the United States.
Capt. Johiion, of the City of Sydney, re
fused to discuss the matter, saying that he
could not do so until he had first consulted
his superiors The passengers of the
steamer, however, who were comersant
with all the facts, were not so reticent.
It appears tbalSustanjente was brought
on board at Corinto, being escorted to the
ship by nil. armed force. The Nicaraguan
authorities stated that the passenger w
a man who had made himself obnoxious
to thegoverument and that hewas a menace
to the peace of the country. As bis passage
was paid no questions were asked.
All went well until the steamer reached
. La Llbertad, the most southerly port of
Ban Salvador. While the vessel lay In
port several officers came out to her and
demanded the surrender of the refugee.
Then, for the first time apparently, was
the identity of the passenger from Corinto
The refugee was not givcnuplmmedlately
and from what can be learned, considerable
correspondence passed between the cap

From the Btory told by the passengers,
a search was made through the ship for
the unfortunate Bustamcnte, but without
success, although on board the vessel. "What
