dispatch from Admiral McCann,, dated
Iquiqne, Chili, June 4: "The Itata arrived
at Iquique from Tocnpella last nighty
and was (daced at the disposition of Ad

board 5.(VX rifles and ammunition taken
from the Rolrt and Minnie off the port
of San Diego, Cal. She had no more mu
nitions of war than those lvlonging to the

meralda, with whom she communicated
off Acapulco. Mex. She then went dirett
to Tocapella. The Charleston arrived at
Iquique to day."

As noon as the Itata takes on c.vtl and
prepares for the return trip. Admiral Mc
Cann will send her lk to San Diego,

cruisers. She will I delivered to the
United States court officers at San Diego,
and the proceedings against her for viola

at the point where they were interrupted
by the unlawful departure of the steamer,
and the responsible parties will likely bo

The Chilian insurgents, it seems, upon
hearing of the escajie of the Itata while
under injunction, disapproved of this ac
tion and at owe determined to surrender
the verv-el, and a proposition was made by
the insurgent! through Admiral McCann
to surrender the vessel as soon as she
reached a South American port. Toca
pella is an insurgent port, and there was
nothing to prevent the Itata unloading her
war munitions into the hands of the in
surgents while she was there, but the in

THE ILLINOJS LEGISLATURE.
A Loll After the Storm in the B ouse
Springfislp, Ills., June 5. The senate
yesterday put in a good deal of tine de
bating the compulsory school bill as
amended by the senate. Nearly every sen
ator had something to say for or i gainst
the clause requiring certain branc hes to
lie taught in English. Its chief advocates
were Mathews, Berry and Kerric'.i, and
the principal opponents were Thieh-, Kar
raker, Brink and Leeper. The bi I was
finally passed, after a debate that -w as dis
tinctly bitter, by a vote of 29 to 22 Shun
way and McDonald, Democrats, voting
with the Republicans explaining that
they did not consider it a party ques ion.
No Error in the Eair Bill itoll C:til.
In the house the advocates of tl. M),00C
for a fair appropriation could find no
error in the roll call on the motion to re
duce the amount to $750,000, and nothing
was done in the way of a move to reconsid
er. The bill permitting ckies of '.O0.0i.Kl
inhabitants to maintain non-secrarian
hospitals was passed. The bill providing
for local option on the liquor license ques
tion in all cities of over 15,000 inhabitant!
was order to second reading, and
that making the "tapping1 of telegraph
wires a misdemeanor, and the gross v eight
mining bill, to third reading. The house
ballot reform bill, as amended bv tte sen
ate, was taken up, the senate amend nents
non-concurred in and the original bill or
dered to third reading. The World s fair
appropriation bill was then consideted by
sections. A number of amendments were
offered and some of no particular interest
adopted, and the amount of appropriation
was not changed. The bill was ordered to
third reading and made special order for
The Insurgent Chilian Cruiser Magallanes
g Makes a Daring Attack,
p. Bas Francisco, June 5. April 24 the
Chilian war vessels Admiral Lynch, Con
dell, and Aldea attacked the insurgent
cruiser Magallanes at Channel bay, the
attacking vessels getting the worst of the
fight and steaming out without attaining
their object of destroying the Magallanes,
which, however, was considerably dam
agrd. The latter vessel then decided to
ractack in turn, and if possible, destroy the
government warships before their repairs
could be completed. The attack was
, made in the baibor of Valparaiso April
JW, and news of the fight, which was the
fiercest that has yet taken place, has just
B-iOdled a Torpedo Boat.
"V razored by darkness the Magallanes
Trept into the harbor of Valparaiso, and
began the attack by ranging close along
side the already crippled Aldea and firing
a broadside into her that did terrible exe
cution. Nearly half of the torpedo boat's
crew were either killed or wounded, and
the vessel was completely riddled. An
alarm was sounded in the forts, but as the
vessels lay so close together the gunners in
the forts dared not fire for fear of hitting
their own vessels.
Close Work and Awful Slaughter.
Getting clear of the Aldea. t he Magallanes
at once attacked the Lynch, hut her fire
was returned with interest. The smoke
stack of the Lynch was blown away, and a
boat containing ten men, who had tieen
sent to try to attack the reliel vessel with
a toredo, wa blown out of the water.
The Condell had steamed to the outside of
the Magallanes, thus getting the latter
between two fires. The Magallanes was
shot through and through. Over forty of
the crew were lying dead or dying on her
decks, but her guns were untouched, and
her captain made up his mind to try to
better his position.
The Condell Nearly Demolished.
Suddenly the rebel vessel Itegan to move
astern and ceased firing, The night being
so dark the government steamers were un
knowingly firing into each other, and
the Condell begun to fill rapidly. The
trick was not discovered until the Magal
lanes bad tnrned, and, steaming across
the stern of the Condell, poured in
a broadside that nearly demolished the
latter, dismounting every gun and killing
fourteen and wounding six more of the
rrew. The rebel steamer then started to
steaSr'V'it of the harbor at full speed.
"A Veil Directed Shell.
Every gun in the forts on shore opened
on her, but only once was she struck. A
heavy shell landed fairly on her deck just
forward of "her pivot gun and burst. The
explosion tore a big jiole in the deck, the
pivot 'gTirr'wiIa thrown over on its side,
and lour men were killed. Soon after that
he was ont of range of the forts, and ran

New York, June 5. Secretary Foster
met a large number oi bankers at the sub
treasury yesterday to discuss the exten
sion of the i)i per cent. bond. After dis
cussion Mr Seligman was called to the
chair and the following resolution unan
imously adopted: "That this meeting,
composed of representatives of Itanks,
trust companies, and bankers of New
York, hereby expresses to the secretary its
unanimous opinion that in view of the ne
cessity for an increase of circulating notes
for the movement of the abundant coming
crops of every variety, it is to the interest
of the country to extend the maturing 4;-j
per cent, bonds at the rate of 2 per cent,
interest, payable at the pleasure of the
government, and that a lower rate of in
terest would tend to contract he currency
at a time inconvenient to all business in
eerests." Objection to a Lower Interest.
President St. John, of the Mercantile
National back, presented figures to show
that there was no profit for the banks in
extending the bonds at l;i per cent., but
would liea profits of about .4 of 1 per cent.
if they were extended at 2 per cent. Pres
ident Cannon, of the C base National bank,
believed the bonds could lie extended at
l'-j, but the hanks would lose money on
them, and this would cause the bonds to
faW Itelow par. Mr. Williams, of the
Chemical bank, agreed in that view.
Foster Reserves His Decision,
Secretary Foster reserved his decision
and made no announcement as to what
his policy would be, but it is generally un
derstood that he will act in accordance
with the resolution. The national banks
represented notified the secretary that
they stood ready in case the bonds were
extended to buv them in open market, and
take out circulation against them. This
would increase the amount of the cur
rency in the country by $2S,000,tiM.
"A l-i'Non Dollar Country."
Secretary Foster was the quest of the
L nioir I.cague club of Lrooklyn last even
ing. After dinner a reception was held.
at which the secretary spoke in tart as
follows: "Our Democratic friends have
had a great deal to say of late altout the
billion dollar congress. His late excellen
cy Grover Cleveland would seem to be
troubled on this score also. These gentle
men forget all the while that this is a bill
ion dollar country. Applause. Con
gress diil make large appropriations for
pensions and for all kinds of public ser
vice. In no case do I think, so far a these
appropriations are concerned, were they
greater than the necessity called for.
am not defending the appropriations.
Some of them I would not defend. But
everv move we make our Democratic
friends seem to think mdicates poverty in
the treasury department.
The Homl Kxtension Question.
Recently I thought it wise and prudent
to propose an extension of the 4,-t,' per
cent, bonds. The treasury department is
abundantly able to pavthe bonds when
they mature. In view of the fact that
S.-iO.ooo.wu in gold had Iteen extended
within a short teriod of time, I deemed it
unwise to do anything just now to de
crease the volume of currencv in the
national banks. It occurred to me also
that if we extended these 1 tends at a satis
factory rate of interest not more fkan 2
per cent, the liankers would buy the bal
ance of these bonds and use it as a basis
for addit tonal currency. My prediction
to-dy is that the bonds may be extended
and at tue rase of a per cent, interest they
will bear a premium, a condition of credit
that exists nowhere in the world be
PLEASES BLAINE TO A DOT.
His Work as Secretary of State No Pros-
pert of Retirement.
New York, June 5. A cpecial to The
World from Ellsworth, Me., says that
Senator Hale, at whose home Secretary
Blaine is stopping, asked a reporter why
the newspaper men followed uf Mr. Blaine
so closely. The reporter replied that they
did not want to be "left" in case of any Im
portant political developments, such, for
example, as Mr. Blaine's possible retire
ment from the cabinet, or his coming out
as a presidential candidate.
Only Needs a Period of UesC
Senator ifale responded: "I have nerer
beard such a thing as his resignation
mooted. I don't lielieve it has ever Beei
thought of. And if you ask me whether I
regard it as a probability I will say I
don't think there is the slightest chance
of it. Mr. Blaine is not in vigorous health
at present, but a period of rest will rein
vigorate him. and be will return to his
post like a lion refreshed. There never
was a time' when Mr. Blaine was more
happily placed as far as public work is
concerned. The work in hand pleases him
to a dot." As to the presidency Hale
would only say that Blaine could depe nd
on Maine for anything he wanted.
He Is a Cleveland Man.
New York, June 5. Congressman
George D. Wise, of Virginia, was at the
New York hotel yesterday. He left at 5
o'clock for California, "I am for Cleve
land for the next president," he said, "be
cause I think be can carry the country,
and because he is an honest and a safe
man. I believe that Virginia is for him
too. He gave us a satisfactory adminis
tration once, and I think that the people
are disposed to trust him again. I think
that Virginia will send a Cleveland dele
gation to the next convention. The Farm
er's Alliance will vote with the Demo
crats rather than as a third party.
