Review of the Law lit the Case,
San 1'r.tiuo, Cal., May 12. The Charles
ton was sighted ten tulles off Point Lonn
nt 11:00 n. m. yesterday, ha.'Ing tnndco
nincty-mUo run iu six hours, or at a
ftftccu-k'not gait. She was under full
steam and headed southeast. Tho
Omaha and Charleston anchored off here
hist night, and exchanged Signals.
The Charleston at fi a. m. left, bound
South. There, were additional orders
awaiting her at San Diego, but sho kept
on her southward course without stopy
' There arc no telegraph stations south of
Eusenada, just south of tho boundary line
ill Lower California, so that, save such
meagre information ns may bo brought
North by ono ot tho Panama or coast
.steamers, nothing further is likely to be
Heard from her or the Rata until the
Charleston returns or is heard from at
some of tho Mexican ports, which cannot
occur beforp Thursday or Friday next.
It is believed that tho transfer of tho
Robert and Minnie's cargo of arms and
ammunition took pi nee off San Clement
Island, northwest of this harbor. Then
tho Itata steamed South cither on Friday
night or Saturday morning.
The Chilian cruiser Esmeralda, It is
thought, is lying off Capo San Lucas, the
southernmost point of Lower California,
awaiting the coming of the Itata.
The'fact that there appears now a very
strong likelihood of a meeting of the two
evenly matched war ships under con
ditions that will require line management
to prevent a light Is thoroughly recog
nized by naval men on tills coast. The
orders to Captain Remey of the Charles
ton are well authenticated to be binding
in the matter of the recapture of the Itata,
it smntc't, anu on ttie part ot tue Jvjme
rolda it is believed as fully that she will
tight if she can reach the scene in time.
The Charleston and the Esmeralda aro
similar as to general plan and possess
nearly the same armament.
Will l!o Denied Supplies,
City of Mexico, May 12, Foreign Min
ister Mariscal says that all tho necessary
steps have been taken to prevent the
Rata landing at a Mexican port. She will
bo allowed to purchase a small quantity
of victuals but" no coal. The Government,
the Minister says, is resolved to observe
strictly tho treaty obligations with Chili
and not to harbor insurgents.
The Si'iiindrcin'H Arinnmufit.
It may be of Interest at this time to state
what is the armament of the three new
cruisers now in the Pacific. The Charles
ton carries six six-inch and two eight-inch
brecchloading rifles in her main batter,
wiih 100 rounds of ammunition for each
gun. Her secondary battery consists of
loursix-poundcr, two thrcc-pounder and
two onc-iioundcr rapid firing rifles; four
,'!7 nun, llotchkiss revolving cannon anil
two Galling guns. The main battery of
the Baltimore consists of six six-inch
brecchloading rilles and four eight-inch
brcechlonding rilles, and she carries 3G0
rounds of ammunition for tbe former and
"05 rounds for the latter. Her secondary
battery is the same as that of tbo Charles
ton. 'The main battery of the San Fran
cisco consists of twelve six-inch breech
loading rilles, for which she carries 1,1 It
rounds of ammunition. Her secondary
battery consists of four six-pounder, four
three-pounder and two one-pounder rapid
firing guns, three 37 mm. llotchkiss re
volving rilles and four Catling guns. The
combined main batteries of these ships
tlicreiore amount to twenty-four sir-Inch
and six eight-inch hreechioading rilles,
while in tlicsecondary batteries arc twelve
six-pounder rapid firing guns, eleven 37
mm. llotchkiss revolving cannon and
eight Gutling guns.
At tbo Navy Dopnrtmoiit.
Commodore Ramsey, in chargeof affairs
at the Navy Department in the absenco of
the Secretary and his assistant, maintains
his reticence in regard to the Itata affair.
He said this morning he had nothing
whatever to say one way or the other.
Tlio Ksniorulilii Is I'ormldabtu.
The rebel Chilian vessel, Esmeralda,
reported as hovering about the lower Cali
fornia coast, wait'ng for the Rata, is,
from all accounts, a formidable lighting
ship. Sho was launched in 18S3 and was
one of the first of tho fast modern pro
tected cruisers, and attracted attention as
soon as she was afloat, making eighteen
knots. Her armament consists of two
ten-Inch guns, such as will boused on the
United States battle-ship Maine, six six
inch guns, eight machine guns, handled
by n ciew of 300.
"the is a good ship," said a naval oill
cer this morning, "and, with a go d
crew, could make n formidable light.
She is not as big in displacement as the
Chailcsttin, the Esmeralda's tonnage
being 3,C0O and that of tho Charleston
Tlio Law In tlio Case.
Tho Rata incident has gono far enough
into history to warrant tlio diligent iniiii
rics that have been made of authorities as
to the status of the United States In the
affair, with some intimation at least of the
Government's purpose. Though nothing
serious may come of it, and there may bo
no reason to apprehend anything hurtful
to the national honor, still it is plain
from tho demeanor of the authorities whu.
aro shaping the attitude of this country
that they arc proceeding with thnt care
nuu iircuiiispci'iiuu iiuuuuiiyu ui an c.uiy
confirmation of the impression that most
Important points of international law aro
involved, and not only that, but chances
for embarrassment hinging upon the out
como of the Chilian civil war which only
tho utmost caution can prevent.
The commercial relations of European
countries with those ot South America
aro such that tlte former can 111 afford to
act with indifference. Tliero is with them
ostrong temptation to court thocauso that
promises success, and if this temptation
passes without some act further to com
plicate the situation, it will dispose of not
n llttlo apprehension which has lodgment
in tho minds of observers.
The extrcmo reticence of the Navy De
partment is like war times, when it is
best to keep tlio plan of action from any
chance of getting to tlio enemy. Hence,
it is onlv natural tho mouths of the au
thorities should bo closed against giving
out tlio desired information.
Ollicers of tho NuVy in tlio city have
been thumbing works on international
law with a greator Interest than at any
time sinco tliov pored over the volumes as
text hooks. The result Is, they arrlvo at a
common conclusion. But very few of
them are bettor informed, olther as to
ordors or the intentions of the Govern
ment, than aro other people who read tho
Speaking to two officers this morn
ing, ono oi tliem, rosponsivo to n Cuitu
Recorii reporter, alluded to W. E. Hall,
M. A., of Oxford, tho eminent English
authority on International law, than whom
none other Is moro widely quoted.
Hall's position clearly covers tho case at
issue. When a vessel commits an infrac
tion in foreign territory sho may bo pur
sued into tho open sea and arrested, pro
vided tlio pursuit is commenced while the
vessel is within territorial wators. And
this qualification by Mr. Hall is also re
garded as pertinent to tho case, Pursuit is
a continuation of tho act of jurisdiction
Which has begun, or, but for accident of.
Immediate csca)o, would have been bej-un

Tlte point lo consider iu this seems to
be the "accident of escape" nnd the right
to pursue on open hca. The Itata is n
marine outlaw, Hying the colors of no
nation and recognized bv none, althougly
Great Britain has accorded tho rights or
belligerents to the Chilian Insurgents, the
owners of the Itata, which this country
has not done. The Rata has violated in
ternational law In that sho tins entered
United Stales territory and received goods
for tin unrecognized cause against acoun
try with which we nro at peaco, and. that
properly subject, ns she Is, to the Chilian
Government, she has shown an intention
to reject that nnthority. Sho Is simply
without any authority from a sovereign
state lo sail the high seas, and no nation
Is hound to recognize her.
It is not only our right but our duly lo
go nnd take the Rata." said a well-posted
oillcer when the question was directly put
to him. "If we don't do it we condono
tho act of tho Itata. It should ho not
only a mpttcr of national pride but a scn
siblo precaution against having to answer
to tho Chilian Government. I have no
doubt that every available United States
warship has been ordered to take tho
Itata wherever she may be found."

1 of Tom Dnly, Related to a Wnslilnc
ton IlitHtiicss Man Regarding Certain
Elastic Racing nt the Late Meeting
The Jockey Club Not Involved.
The Washington Jookey Club lias closed
one of the most successful race meetings
ever held in this vicinity, considered
pecuniarily. From a racing standpoint,
however, there are those who allege that
th6 members of the club were made the
Victims of as irregular racing as was ever
itcrpcfrated outsidcof notoriously crooked
tracks. It Is admitted that they were un
suspicious Hint their track was being used
by certain bookmakers and owners for
their own purposes. No blame is attached
to the club, cither as to Its Individual
members or as a whole, for the prompt
action of tlio judges In several races in
suspending jockeys and ruling off owners
cjf several suspicious races showed that so
far as the club was concerned it was de
termined to have everything fair and
And so the spring meeting of the Jockey
Club would have passed off without, any
thing but the Usual vague suspicion that
there was "crooked" raciug had not the
owner of one of the stables, who was out
of funds nnd wanted to Eet awav with his
string of horses, made a conhdant of a
well-known sporting man and told tho
story of how the bookmakers and the
owners, with, of course, some notable ex
ceptions, combined to defraud the public.
Ycslcrday afternoon Mr. Roberts, the
qwher of Tom Dalv, who had his hor3c
entered in the first race last Saturday,
entered the placo of a well-known business
man of this city, who is likewise in
tprestcd iu racing and is somewhat of a
bettor. Takinc him lo one side. Roberts
said ho understood he was a sporting man
and one who did not mind risking n few
hundreds on a race. After "jollying"
him up in litis way for some time the
genial horse owner proceeded to unfold
Ills little plan.
Ho had become the owner of Noonday
and Bargain, two other horses who made
ninny a bettor's heart sick during the
meeting bv their ability to lose, and de
sired to get tho string to Buffalo. To do
this he wanted $200, and In exchange
was Trilling to give the lender a half in
.tcrcst In Ins winniiigsat the Buffalo meet
ing. Tom Daly, so "ho claimed, could do
six furlongs inside of 1:151 (which is quite
fast time), and he had an open and shut
dead snro thing on the horses in Buffalo.
But the person whom he approached
was not to bo lured by the tempting bait,
and declined the oiler, but first diplomat
ically inquired why lie had not won at
Then followed the expose.
Mr. Roberts declared that manv of the
races were fixed In the interests of the
bookmakers, and cited not only the caso
of ids own horse, which, he claimed,
could havo beaten every olhcr horse
In every race in which he had been
entered, but gave the names of other
owners, who instructed jockeys not to rido
to win. Roberts declared that all of the
stables with but few exceptions were in
the ring, and the profits went to them and
the bookmakers. As tho pilrses were only
$100, of which the first horse received
$300, more money could bo made on the
He also cited tlio peculiar in-and-out
running of India Rubber as an evidence
of the truthfulness of what ho said. The
horso belongs to the Gloucester stables,
and on April 20 pulled off a long shot at
seven furlongs with 107 pounds up in
1:201, which is good time.
But two days later, with only SO pounds
tip, at a mile, the horse was beat out six
lengths and was not even placed. The
timo on this race was 1:13. The owners
claim that tho horse could not go the
mile, and yet he was entered in the
handicap on Saturday against Belisariui,
Syracuse, Leo II., Lotion and Boodle and
made a second favorite. Syracuse won
tho race by half a length "from the
Gloucester entry in 1:12, tho best timo
mado on the track for the distance, if,
I insisted Mr. Roberts, India Rubber car-
, rled 80 pounds on May 1 and was beaten
'six lengths, with the winner performing
in 1:13, how is it he carried fourteen
'pounds more on Saturday and was only
'beaten half a length in the best time
made on the track "
Whereupon tho genial horse-owner
struck an attitude of expectancy and
made another "braco" for the necessary
shekels to take his horses to the city by
Lake Erie, but, not meeting with tho fa
vorable response heantieinated, proceeded
to unfold homo more of the methods of
the ring In fleecing the public.
"But,11 as Kipling says, "that's another

turfmen and their followers.
