Guatemalan Troops Driven
Across the Border.
Confirmation of the Reported Battle With
San Salvador Forces.
The lovaders Taken by Surprise— Central
American Consuls at New York
Discredit the Story.
Special Dispatches to The Mon^ixa Call.
New York. July 22.— The Herald says:
A private cipher cable dispatch received in
this city yesterday fully confirmed the ex
clusive accounts of the battle between the
Guatemalan and San Salvador forces. The
Guatemalan forces were under command
of General Fuentes and were encamped a
little to the southward and eastward of
Chalchuapa, close upon the San Salvador
A special aid had been sent by General
Fuentes to convey dispatches from the
ti;iut(-nialan Government to General Ezeta,
the Provisional President of San Salvador,
requesting him to give his consent to the
ratification of the proposed union of the
five republics on August 20th next at
Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.
The proposed compact for the union of
the five republics was agreed upon by
delegates from each country in October,
1880, subject to the general promulgation
oi the treaty of union on September 15,
. which date is the anniversary of
republicanism in Central America.
General Ezeta received the dispatches and
replied as follows: "San Salvador is a
sovereign State and knows how to act with
out the interference or intervention of any
other power, be it great or small. Still, in
deference to her sister republic, it must
courteously yet firmly decline to receive in
structions from Guatemala."
President Barillas up v receipt of this re
ply instructed Generals Fuen tea, Xajfro and
Aguilar to cross the frontier, waiving the
f rmaliUes of a declaration of war. The
San Salvador troops were pretty much con
centrated at Santa Anna and Aguachapan.
General Ezeta, who had placed himself
in command of the troops of San Salvador,
himself directed by telegraph the move
ments of the Santa Ana forces which
were sent to repulse the Guatemalans. The
Guatemalans were taken completely t>y
surprise at the resistance offered, and re
treated precipitately beyond tho borders to
their own territory.
No estimate of the loss of life on either
tide can be formed, but ironi all accounts
only thirty or forty were killed or wounded.
Tb" San Salvador troops did not follow
their advantage as they bad received in
structions only to preserve the integrity of
their own territory.
Guatemala has cabled to her Minister to
the United States, who is now iv Europe,

The news from Mexico retarding the
Kittle between the troops of Salvador and
Guatemala was discredited yesterday by
some of the Consuls frcn Central Amencju
republics in this city. Jacob tiaiz. Consul

It would be impossible for San Salvador to

notice, if indeed she could do it at all.

THE WESTERN UNION.
The Work of the Company Resumed at
the Scene of the Recent Fire.
New York, July 21.— A large number of
operatorb were sending and receiving dis
patches from all parts of the country in the
Western Union Building this morning. At
11 o'clock Manager Dealy issued the follow
ing bulletin: "Working from H'3 and 415
Broadway to all points. Tin 1 delay now is
principally with way stations in New i'ork.
New Jersey and Eastern States. The forces
at the depot offices ii! Jersey City will be
called into 195 Broadway, nnd the general
business will be done on good time from
now on." The wires are doing business at
the exchanges, being operated from l(i Broad
street and ISS Broadway. A large number
of workmen are engaged in repairing the
damage to the building. It is not yet de
cided whether it will be necessary to re
build the roof of the structure, whicu would
be an immense and costly job.
For the lirst time since the fire of Friday,
Jay Gould was this' morning at the offices
on the feeoud iloor of the Western Union
Building. Little damage was done Dy
water there, and the usual force of clerks
was engaged in the usual routine. Said he
to a reporter: "I was not connected with
the company when this building was erect
ed, but it was understood to be as nearly
Crevroof as possible to the floors. The
walls and staircases all were indestructible.
Of course there was necessarily a vast
amount of fuei on hand in furniture needed
to accommodate so many persons. It must
be said, however, in view of the probable
origin of the fire, that had it broken out at
any other time, it would almost certainly
have been extinguished at once. The lire
doubtless arose from the contact of sev- ml
wires, which were raised to a white heat by
combined currents, igniting the covering of
the wires and woodwork near by. 'I he men
usually on hand at tiie point where the tire
began were not there at that time to check
the SDread of the llames, which were
not discovered until they had made some,
headway. When me lire was at length no
ticed the force of men on the spot was un
eijual to accomplish what they at lirst at
tempted, namely, to extinguish the fire
without giving an alarm. Instead of say
ing that at any other hour the tire would
probably have caused great loss of life, it is
doubtless proper to say that at any other
Im. ur the building would not have been de

Bp'clal Dispatches to The Mobnis-o Call.
DuLTTTn (Minn.), July 21.— Thousands of
spectators were present at this the first day
of the great regatta, and the weather and
water were in perfect condition. In the
junior singles the contestants were Nettle
ton of the Miucesotas, Henderson of the
Chicago Catlin Club and Thompson of
Winnipeg. Nettleton won by two lengths
in 10 mm. 49 sec, Thompson second, llen
The junior four-eared race resulted as
follows: Wiunipegs first, Duluths second,
Minuesotas third, Lurlines fourth, St.
Pauls fifth. The judges' boat unfortunately
ran too close and the St. Pauls had to back
water. This delayed them several seconds
just atter the turn and, added to the fact
that the Lurlines and Duluths fouled,
caused the judges to decide that the race
must be rowed again.
The junior double was very unsatisfac
tory and was won by six boat lengths by
the Catliu Club of Chicago, the Minne
eotas second. During the last half the
Catlins had the lead ten lengths and were
taking it extremely easy, while Wright of
the Slinnesotas appeared exhausted, and
the Lurlioes stopped rowing three-eighths
of a mile from the finish. Catlius' time,
The great professional double was a mag
nificent race. It was a two-mile struggle,
the winning crew to get $1000, the second
$550 and the third $450. Gaudaur and
McKay were nearest the shore, Teenier
and Homier next, Haitian and Wise next,
and lliimm and Teneyek last. There was
some delay in giving the signal, but when
the shot was finally fired every man dipped
his oars with wonderful unanimity. The
stroke of Gaudaur and McKay soon told,
and they forced ahead of Teenier and llos
mer, first a quarter, then a half and then a
full length. The crews followed one an
other quite closely in that order from the
shore, Gaudaur r.nd McKay pulling forty
two strokes to the minute, the
others thirty-six. Gaudaur and Mc-
Kay were first to make the turn,
but were quickly followed by Ilosmtr and
Teenier, then by Ilanini and Teneyck, and
finally by Ilanlan and Wise. Half way to
the finish the press boat was passed, when
Gaudaur and McKay led Hosuier and
Teenier by three lengths. The latter kept
three-fourths of a length ahead of Ilamin
and Teneyck, who kept the same distance
ahead of the Toronto crew. The Gaudaur
crew shot across the line, amid the screech
ing of whistles, about four lengths ahead.
The efforts of the last two crews to pass
Ilcsnier were unavailing, although there
was but a quarter of a length be
tween . Teenier and ilamin and also
between Hainui and Ilanlan at the
finish. Ilanlan would have done
better had he not lost both oars for a sec
ond, a few hundred yards from the finish.
Time— Gaudaur and McKay, 12:28; Teenier
and llosuier, 12:32; Hamni and Teneyck,
12.33%; Hanlan and Wise, 12:34. Hhiiiiu
and Teueyi'k, according to Teenier and
Hosmer, turned the former's crew's buoy
and Teenier has entered a protest. -

South Dakota Senators Will Fight for the
Washington", July 21.— One of the hot
test Bgbta that will an-c in the Senate dur
ing the debate on the T ariff Bill will be
made by Senators Pettigrew and Moody of
South Dakota in favor of protection for the
development of tin interests. There
has never been any serious effort
made until now to develop the
tin mines of this country. While
lead, silver, copper aud nearly all
other ores found in the United States have
been given specific attention in the tariff
la»>, tin has received only general atten
tion. The Dakota Senators say they will
not a»k as much encouragement as is given
either copper or lead, and they declare that
tin is a much more essential product than
either of the products named. David
Days, Chief of Miues and Mining in the
Geological Survey, says the difference in
prices paid for labor in this country and
Wales and other tiu-producing countries
makes it essential to have protection at the
hands of Congress for two or three years,
until the mines may be developed. He
takes a lively interest in the reported find
of rich tin deposits in San Bernardino
County, and is anxious to hear further from
BOWLES' KIiSIG NATION.
It Will Necessitate the Eeorganiiation of the
Navy Construction Corps.
Washington, July 21. — The reported
resignation from the navy of Naval Con
structor Howlrs would necessitate the re
arrangement of oflicers of the Constructors'
Corps. This is a duty the performance of
which would be guided by the exercise of
the political influence of the constructors
mill the appreciation of the latter's respec
tive ability. Tim system of detailing con
structors to superintend certain work on
the Government cruisers building at pri
vate concerns disposes of two of the eleven
constructors. Of the remaining nine Wil
son aud Hichborn are on duty at the de
partment as Chief and Assistant Chief of
the Bureau of Construction and Repair,
respectively. The important responsible
outside billets are the navy-yard details at
Jfew York, where. Constructor W. L. Min
tojne is stationed; Slaro Island, where
Constructor J. Feaster is on duty, and Nor
folk, where Constructor Bowles lias been
located 6ince l«w;. It is generally conceded
that these details call for men well in
formed in the profession and combining a
technical knowledge of ship-building with
practical administrative capacity. The se
lection of officers for these places has
always been an important matter.
SAN FKAN CISCO POSTOFFICE.
No Action to Be Taken Until Clarkson's Re
turn to Washington.
Was niNGTON, July 21. — Congressman
Morrew called at the Treasury Department
to-day and had a conference with the Sec
retary respecting the San Francisco post
office-site question and certain customs
matters. The site matter remaius in abey
ance until the return of First Assistant
Postmaster-General Clarkson from the Pa
cific Coast, which is expected some time
this week. Clarkson will make an unofficial
report on the matter to the three memoers
ol the commission, Windom, WauamaKer
aud Miller. It is learned that Clarksou was
not instructed to investigate this matter,
but while iv Sau Francisco his attention
was called to it by the property-owners.
Knowing that the commission would be glad
to receive information on this vexed ques
tion, Mr. Clarkson devoted some time to
investigating it. As his report will un
doubtedly go a long ways toward deciding
the question, his return is anxiously awaited.

Dawes moved to proceed to the considera
tion of the Indian Appropriation Bill.
Gray asked tiiui to yield and permit the
hill to transfer the Bevenm Marine to the
naval establishment be taken, up in the
Mornll informed Dawes that if he did
not proceed with the Indian Appropriation
Bill he (Morrill) would move to proceed
with the Tariff Bill.
Gray remarked that the Senator from
Vermont could hardly expect to exclude all
other matters that might not have the ex
tent and magnitude of the Tariff Bill.
There was no legislation that could be con
sidered by the Senate during the remainder
of the session that would take the same
time for consideration as the Tariff Bill,
ana he did not think the Senator should
proclaim at the outset that nothing else
should be considered.
Morrill said it was net his purpose to an
tagonize particularly the bill of the Senator
from Delaware; but he did propose to ask
consideration of the Tariff Bill in oppo
sition to any other measure, except appro
priation bills. /-•■;>- s-i ■_

The Republicans who voted aye were:
Cameron, Casey, Culloin, Farwell, Frye,
Ingalls, Mitchell, Sawyer, spooner, Teller
and Washburu. The Democrats who voted
no were: Bates, Cockrell, Gorman and
The Senate then proceeded to the con
sideration of the House bill to transfer the
Revenue Marine service. The bill having
been read, the date for the appointment of
the Kevenue Marine officers to be officers of
the navy was fixed for January 1, lb'Jl, so
that it would be of no service in the col
lection of the customs revenue. The only
object of the bill was to advance the pay of
ollicers to the extent of 8121,000 a year and
to have them titled to be placed on the
retired list. Theso officers had not asked
for the measure.
Voorhees criticized the Tariff Bill in de
tail, lie characterized it as a financial
monster. The reduction iv sugar ami mo
lasses was no reduction at all in light of the
proposed bounty to planters. The increase
in woolen goods amounted to £15,000,000 a
year. This was simply protection run mad.
Voorhees referred to the recent Stanley
wedding in London, and the presents of
fabulous price. Among these was the gift
of Carnegie, a gilt richer and rarer and far
more costly than any that could be afforded
by the Queen of England or the King of
Belgium. The gift was an uncut diamond
of such size and quality that neither the
richest of the crown jewels of England nor
the moonstone of India could surpass it in
value. How came this American king of
steel and iron to have such a diamond?
Farmers of the United State) paid for that
diamond ten thousand times over in the
last twenty years by paying an aver
age duty of over thirty-eight per cent
on every article of iron they used, by pay
ing the Increased rates of freight made
necessary by the high duties on steel and
iron rails and rolling stock. If the pend
ing bill becomes a law the farmers would
have to pay on iron and steel an increase of
duty of Irom 0b.24 to 51.75 per cent. Voor
hees passed on to the proposed increase of
120 per cent on tin-plate, in order to pro
tect the iufaut industry, as yet unborn,
and give employment to iM,uuo workingmen
now idle. It would be far cheaper for the
country to pay 24.000 idle men average
wages than to tax every square of tin-roof,
every dinner-pail, tea-pot 'and milk-can,
simply to make a dozen millionaires, and
enable them to give coaching parties
to protection leaders, and to found libra
ries from the savings of 15 cent reduc
tion of the wages of workiugmen. Tin
plate had the tiist right to be on the free
list; and he would at the proper time move
to put it there. There was no manufacturer
of it in the country, and there was nothing
to protect, even if protection were right.
All the internal revenue taxes on manu
facturers, brokers and dealers, bank checks
and incomes had been swept away, while
the duties on trace-chains, tin bucket*,
flannel shirt- aud the like had had mani

At the close of the speech Cockrell

The Charming Double Bill Given
at the Baldwin.
Florid Comedy and Dainty Sentiment— The
Tivo'.i Revives " Orpheus "—No Change
at the Other Housei.
The one-act comedietta by Augustus
Thomas, entitled " A Man of the World,"
with which the third week of the Palmer
engiigcment opened at the Baldwin, is a
morceau wherein, as Captain Bradley, Mr.
Maurice Barry more plays the most impor
tant part. It has some tin" points about: it,
but lacks finish in many places. The Cap
tain is responsible for the welfare of Mrs.
Clay Willard (Miss Nannie Craddock), who
is in danger of being estranged from a non
attentive husband (Mr. F. B. Tyler) by the
closer attentions of Mr. George Ellis (Mr. H.
Woodruff). Bradley once loved Mrs. Wil
lard's mother, and when her husband died
he committed the daughter to his care. Ills,
subsequent worldly experience enables him
to steer her clear of the danger that threat
ens at the hands of young Ellis. By some
maladroitness, or loss of memory, Mr. Bar
ry more missed the thread of ins part or lines
at one time and had to leave the stage for a
time. It was an awkward situation, but
did not materially impair the interest of
the audience in the piece, not so much as
the delay in commencing the performance
does and the long waits between acts.

Some chances have been made in the plot
and business since the piece was first
brought out in New York; but thp follow
ing synopsis will cover the main features
and Hive an idea of its complicated con
struction : Aunt Jack is a Miss Joan Bry
son, a well-to-do maiden ludy of a strong
minded school, who conies to town to ask a
jury of her countrymen for Jt'oOOO damages
as solatium for hopes that liav«s been b'uht
ed and matrimonial promises that have
been evaded by the fickle Colonel Tavenor,
who has jilted h<-r. firstly, because lie has
discovered her money is "tieilup," secondly,
becauso she has been bold enough to sing a
vulgar comic song of the music-hall type
at some local "penny readings." Aunt
.lack has a nephew, who, for a living,
depends upon her bounty and on what he,
Caleb Cornish (Mr. Kdward Bell), cau earu
as a barrister, presumably with very infre
quent briefs. Altogether without her
knowledge, he has married the Colonel's
niece, Mildred (Miss Maud Harrison), and
expects to share his fortune when he shall
have departed to a world where Colonels
are unkuown. Aunt Jack consults this
nephew on her case, instructs him to sup
port her claims, and, even when the mar
riage is made known to her, scorns the
suggestion to abandon her action
because of his relationship to the
defendant. At this nephew's cham
bers she encounters another barrister,
Berkeley Brue, who lias been retained by
the Colonel for his defense, and who, little
dreaming that she is the plaintiff in the ac
tion, falls desperately in love with her,
and is encouraged to believe that his pro
posal of marriage will be accepted. It
will hv seen here that a pretty piece of com
plication and confusion of cross purposes
and awkward entanglement of strife be
tween love and Qui> has been prppareO for
the trial, which occupies tne whole of the
third act. The nepnew has to denounce
the defendant, whose good will he is most
anxious to secure, and Brue has to cross
examine the plaintiff, who has won his
heart and whom be is desirous to make his
wife. The result of the trial is that tho
lady gets £2000 damages, the verdict being
arrived at without their leaving the box.
May be said to be a laugh from beginning
to end, on account of the humorous situa
tions and business evolvea from various
complications, which have been handled
with masterly skill by the playwright, and
with which the people in the east do their
level best. In the third act, when tlie trial
for breach ol promise takes place, with J.
11. Stoddurt on the bench as Mr. Justice
Mundle, the lun grows fast and furious.and
reminds one of the stories heard (if the
farcical trials before Chief Baron Xich
olson of the "Judge and Jury Club" in
London. The ridiculous climax is reached
when the plaintiff is asked to sine in the wit
ness-box a comic song of her own composi
tion, "If you want to know the time, ask a
policeman," and the singing of which in the
nist place led to Tavener's backing out of
tlie engagement. "Aunt Jack" is a comedy
to make one laugh till the water comes
in his eyes, ami ought to be sure of a
crowded house all the week.

A BnTi»E» Unnk Story.
There is an impression abroad that much
money is lying unclaimed in the savings
bunks of the Mat.-. But money is a thing
that is not lost sight of to any extent,
either in savings or other banks. There
may be periods of durmancy in the claims
made for it; often it is left by design. An
instance of that kiod occurred last week at
the National Savings Bank of Albany,
which was twenty-ono years old on Satur
d«y last. The first savings-bank pass-booK,
Jju. 1, issued by it for SIOOO was pieaenled.
It was money deposited in 1809 for liis then
iufaut son by a father, and now. at his ma

Gratitude of Women.
"I don't know bow other people feel
about it," said the senior of a group, a man
about fifty years old, of dignified appear
ance and courtly in demeanor, to a New
York Tribune reporter, "but I find that
when I am tempted to krep my seat and to
see a woman stand 1 am ashamed of my
self. Something makes me feel cheap, so
that I haven't the courage to look her or
any one else in the eyes. For my own
peace of mind, therefore, I give up my seat
and stand, however tired I am. I must say
that I have seldom met women who failed
to recognize this little compliment to their
sex by some sign of appreciation— a pleas
ant nod, a graceful smile or a quiet and con
ventional 'thank you.' Perhaps this is be
cause I am getting old, but that is neither
here nor there.
"I can »ay, though, with perfect truth
that I have had one experience where a well
intended act of courtesy not only did not
elicit any word of thanks but, on the con
trary, caused the woman evident annoy
ance. And I could hardly blame her,
although I was terribly embarrassed by her
"I was in Boston at the time (don't smile,
you self-satisfied New Yorkers), and went
to the Boston Museum to get seats for one
of Booth's performances. There was a long
line before the box-office when I took my
place at the end. The one in line before
me was a woman, handsomely but quietly
dressed. The people ru;>ved so slowly and
the wait whs so wearisome that we kept no
direct Hoe. but were turned, some one way,
some another. In this way I could not fail
to notice the woman's wonderful complex
ion. It was dazzling in its delicate tints of
rose and white and one could almost see the
roses in her cheek fade and blush by turns.
I am afraid that I found her complexion so
perfect that I was impolite enough to stare .
at her when I thought she was not looking
my way, for she turned her hoao, and after
that 1 could only see the pink and white of
two delicately fashioned ears.
" When she reached the box-office and se
lected her seats and was opening her
pocket-book to pay for them a small pack
age slipped from her hands. I saw it and
grabbed at it to catch it before it struck the
marble of the floor. Of course I missed it
and as it fell I heard a slight crash of glass.
Picking it up hurriedly I offered it to her,
but she crisply declined to touch it, saying:
•Please let it jie ou the floor.'
'I stood there rather sheepishly, holding .
it, when I felt a cold, creamllke mixture
.steal between my ringers. Looking at the f
package, I saw, to my horror, that . the
wrapper had been torn enough to show ou
the bottle's side just two words, 'Face
Enamel.' The woman had started for the.
■tain with. a crimson hue in her cheeks
that no enamel, no paint, not even the most
highly colored brush of Dature could equal.
As for me, I dropped the bottle with a
crash and tied like a coward, not wailing
fur any tickets. As I made my escape I
heard . several snickers. They were ' all ■
women:!.! ■ ■ .*.»"
"Exnotty Like My 1. 0r. 1."
There is a story of a noble lord who gave
his friend a golden snuff-box, on the cover
of which an nss' head was painted. Not
much tl;ittered by this present, and wishing
to turn the tables on the author of the joke,
the recipient took out the ass and inserted
instead the portrait of the lord.
Tho next day at dinner, as if by accident,
he put his box on the table. The lord, who
wished to amuse his guests at the expense
of his friend, made mention of the snuff
box and aroused the curiosity of those
around him. A lady asked to see it It
was passed to tier. She opened it and ex
"Perfect! It is a striking likeness. In
deed, my lord, it is one of the best portraits
of you I have ever seen."
The lord was naturally much embarrassed
at the joke, which he thought was so bard
upon Mm. While he was reflecting upon
the inoffenaiveness of it the lady passed the
l»x to her neighbor, who made similar re
marks about it. The snuff-box thus went
round the table, each one expatiating upon
the resemblance. The nobleman was much
astonished at this course of things aud be
gun to grow not a little indignant; but
when it came to his turn to louk he had to
join in the laughter, too, aud acknowledges
that his friend had gottho best of him.— Er,
