SOLVING THETRUNK MYSTERt.

Cuicaoo, May 13. Augustlno Jurado,
the Sicilian, who was brought back from
New York by Detective Bonflcld to answer
to the charge of murdering Flllppo Canisso,
thu man lio was found dead In a trunk at
I'itMmrgh, Is now locked up at the Central
Station. Sunday night Jurado was
taken from his cell and conducted
to the private " office of Lieutenants
Shea and Kepley. Detective Bonflcld and
Officer Morris, the Italian policeman, who
lias done most of the work on the case, were
also In tho room. Morris speaks Italian
fluently, and he at once began Interpreting
for Jurado tho questions asked by Shea and
Kepley. Then Morris Interpreted the an-
gwers to Shea, Kepley andBonfield In aloud
voice. As the examination progressed It
became evident that some startling
developments were to bo made. Jurado,
after much questioning, said, ac
cording to the translation by Morris,
that he took the trunk to tho depot, and also
that he left for New York with Victoria
Camlrlto next day. When asked whether
he knew what was in the trunk he hesitated
for soma time, and at last endeavored to
evade the question. Cornered, ho defiantly
said he did not know what was In
the trunk at the time. More pump
ing followed, and Jurado broke down
and committed himself in several
particulars. Morris spoke lower after that,
and what he said could not be heard. When
Jurado was at-last brought out after mid
night he was evidently v ery much frightened.
Thu officers were Jubilant, but none of the
detectives would say anything more about a
confession, and a hugo cloud of the most
profound mystery settled down upon their

The Cincinnati Enquirer ot Tucslay says,
Springfield is putting on airs since it got
the Republican convention. Ihe Globk
RiPDBLtosav: "It isvety remarkable, and
often remarked, that It Is tbe small-fry news
papers of tbe dog-fenne' and sassafras towns
o Ohio that are doing the most vigorous
kicking' against Springfield as tbe seat of
the Republican State convention." After
that Springfield will be obliged to do the
handsome thing by the delegates. If It re
quires its visitors to sleep on the sidewalk,
tiring their lunches with them, and depend
solely on Ihe town-pump for beverage, the
"dog-fennel and sassafras towns" will mass
thsmselves against Springfield, and make it
orry the convention was ever taken there.
However, it seems highly probable that
.Springfield will spread herself wide enough to
cover all ike eggi that have been put under

In tho House of Commons last night the
vote of credit of $55,000,000 for war pur
poses being tinder consldeiatlon, Lord
George Hamilton, Conservative member foi
Middlesex, brought up tho motion of which
Sir Stafford Northcote gave' notice on his
behalf last Friday, that tho House, having
shown Its readiness to vote supplies, will re
fuse to assent to tho vot5, 11,000,000, until
it has been informed of the Government's
present policy mid of the purposes to which
the money granted Is to be applied. Lord
Georgo Hamilton, In supporting his motion,
made a bitter attack upon the Government,
accusing them of Ignomlnously running
away from tho Soudan, after having accom
plished absolutely nothing except the .mur
der of ten thousand natives, and of having
made concessions to Russia which amounted
to a complete surrender, In retArn for noth
ing but a patched-iip nnd sliotMIveil peace.
Ho demanded that tho Ilnusntoe placed In
possession of tho full correspondence on the
Afghan frontier controversy, and that the
Government furnish a definite statement of
Its future policy in treating that question.
A lemarknbly effcctlvo reply to this
speech was in.ule on behalf of "tho Cabinet
by lit Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, President
of tho Hoard of Trade, nnd member for
Birmingham, vv ho characterized Lord Ham
ilton's language as valiant bat devoid of
sense, und worthy of n rhetorlcan rather
than of a statesman. If the House desired
to call the Government to nccount, con
tinued Mr. Chamberlain, tho matter was In
their own hands. Instead of discussing
such weak and nbstird motions as the pres
ent, they could simply refuse to grant the
supplies for which Ihe Government asked
in order to carry out its policy.

for Lincolnshire, supported the motion, and

Waiiiis qtos, May la. President Cleve
land and Postmaster General Vilas have bad
several consultation respecting the dlspod
tton of the 8400,000 subsidy voted by Con
gress for mall carrying on tcamshtplme ot
American registry. When Congress gave
the Executive branch of the Government
authority to disburse thi money, It limited
tho rate of subsidy to fifty cent per nautical
mile. If the lubsldy I dealt out propor
tionately to the line entitled to a share of
It the rate will not exceed twenty cents a
mile. The Pott says that the President has
called tixm the Cabinet for advice In dis
bursing the appropriation. The various
steamship lines are itrongly represented
Mr. S. S. ('ox isaJd to a representative of the
press yesterday that unless the delegation
from Now York, which are to arrive here to
morrow to urge him to decline the Turkish
mission, can present reasons which will con
vince him that they areparamount to his

The Piesldent yesterday signed the com
mission of Hon. Charles M. Shelly, of Ala
bama, to the Fourth Auditor of the Treas
ury. Mr. Shelly will qualify and assume
the duties of the office to-day.
Postmaster General Vilas says that the
cause of the suspension of B. W. Bcebc,
postmaster nt Drondhead, Wis., was that
the ttmaster was negligent and the
moneys due tho Government were not kept
separate an they should be. Within the
past year the office had to be Inspected five
times and inspectors were constantly report
ing the postmaster as neglectful and urging
The commission of Alfred P. Swlneford,
of Michigan, and William B. McConnell,
of Dakota, to be Governor of Alaska, and
Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of

Henry B. James, chief of the customs divis
ion. Treasury Department has tendered his
resignation to Sccre ary Manning.
Delegations from Indiana, Iowa, Mary
land and a number of other States, called
on the President yesterday. Senator Gor
man headed a delegation from Rockvtile,
Md.. which Invited the President to Attonrl
tho approaching county fair. The Presi
dent's reply was non-committal.
The President has appointed the follow
ing postmasters: Maurice Lltsch, at Sfa
hanoy City, Pa., vice Jacob L. Brlcker,
commission expired; John Slack, at Bristol,
Tenn.;Mry II. Edwards, Cleveland, Tenn.;
Harvey C. Moore, Broadhoad, Wis.; Mr. O.
A. Hastings, Port Gibson, Miss.; J. L.
Meade, Uazlehurst Miss.
It Is denied at the Treasury that any con
sideration has been given to the question of
Mr. E. O. Graves' successor as Assistant
Treasurer. The gossips are far ahead of
this, however, and have named Mr. A."Q.
Collins, a lawyer of Batavla, N. Y., aathe
coming man. Tlie Impression prevails In the
department that Treasurer Jordan will name
his assistant and will make the- selection
with a view to securing a man thoroughly
conversant with the duties of tbe office and
capable of performing a fair share of tbo
work. The belief that such a man cannot
be found outside of the Department serves
to encourage the ofllccrs of the bureau to
hopo that tho position may be filled by pro
motion. Postmaster General Vilas says It Is not
true that Manvllle Noyes, of Burlington,
Vt, reported to have been apolnted Super
intendent of Supplies for the Postofllce De
partment Is his cousin, and further than
that, no such apiielntment has been made.
Henry B. James, Chief of the Customs
Division of the Treasury Department, has
tendeied his resignation to Svcivtary Man
ning. Captain James A. HowleU, a retired En
glish mji captain, the Inventor ot an auto
matic gun, and B. Constitute (Italian), a
pioiiiinent watchmaker of Washington,
quarrelled over the former' Invention. A
eon impendence followed, and lutb have
been arrei-tcd to prevent a duel. Judge
Sneel, In the Police Court yesterday, held
Howlett and Constante under S200 ball each
for their appearance before him next Thurs
day, and to keep the peace meanwhile.
