the Steamship Coiima.
Special Dispatches to The Morning Call.
. New York, July 25. — The Ilerald's
special from the City of Mexico says: Not
withstanding the exaggerated reports that
have emanated from the leaders of the two
( out! American republics now involved in
a row, this much is certain, battles have
been fought and a formal declaration of war
has been made. After the troops' of Sal
vador entered Guatemala and planted their
flag upon Guatemalan soil, Guatemala felt
insulted, and declared war. Guatemalan
ops fought with great courage at
Cootepeque end Chingo. The loss was
great on both sides. The troops of Salva
dor were driven out of Guatemala, but re
turned and won the battle.
President Barillas of Guatemala has is
sued this manifesto and his henchmen
claim that it has aroused great enthusiasm:
Guatemala. July 24, 1890. — The sol

Government has lelt Itself obliged lo accept war

in order to sustain It with dignity. The foreign
colonies and our people have risen en ira-se to

All battles reported to have been fought
between Sau Salvador and Guatemala have
taken place on the Rio Pas, a stream divid
ing: Guatemala from Salvador. These battles
took place in the District of Santa Ana in
Salvador and others in Guatemala. Which
of the two armies was victorious in the last
battle is in doubt, owing to the conflicting
news. President Ezeta's brother is com
iiiai.ding the army of Salvador, and is said
to have been foremost In every fight.
Honduras has not remained idle in the
international strife; she is sending troops
to the frontier of Salvador, in the part of
the Country divided by the Goascoran
River. If she invades Salvador her
first attack will be made upon San Miguel
in the northeastern part of the republic.
It is believed -he is concentrating about
3000 men on the river for this purpose.

City of Mexico, July 2".— The Salva
vadoriau Geueral, Ezeta, a brother of Pres
ident Ezeta, defeated the Guatemalans
again at Atezcatenipo Cliingo, in Guate
mala, twenty leagues from the frontier,
obliging the Guatemalans to abandon tlieir
fortifications at Coco. The Salvadorlans
captured an immense amount of booty.
Following the correspondence between the
Guatemalan Generals and Salvadorian
traitors General Ezeta sent a personal chal

Guatemalan agents are spreading false re
ports of a victory.
Dispatches from Guatemala say that the
Pacific Mail steamer- receive a subsidy
from Guatemala which gives the Guate
malan authorities certain rights while ves
sels are in Guatemalan waters, and among
these is the right of sea search for contra
band goods. Among these are counted arms
for nations at war with Guatemala.
El Paso, July 25.— Dispatches received
here state that the troops of San Salvador
invaded Guatemala and planted their flag
upon Guatemalan soil. Guatemala was in
sulted and declared war. The Guatemalan
troops fought with great courage at Coote
heque and Chingo. The loss was gaeat on
both sides. Yesterday the troops of San
Salvador were driven out of Guatemala.
Washington, July 25.— The secretary
of State has called upon the United States
Minister at Guatemala for a report in re
gard to the alleged detention of the steam
ship Colima at a Guatemalan port and the
seizure of arms and ammunition, which
formed a part of her car.*
New Yokk, July 25.— Dr. AVolfred Nel
son, a traveler and scientist who has soent
many years in the (Central American prov
inces, and who has just returned from that
country on his way to Europe, says of the
outbreak between San Salvador arid Guate
mala: "I believe the reports are true in
so far as they refer to an outbreak of
trouble. There will be many more bittles
before this war is over, and if San Salvador
is not victorious in the end it will be due
only to the superior force arrayed against
her, not to her own weakness or faint
heartedness, for the Salvadoreans are the
best fighters in Central America. I am
perfectly convinced tiiat ihe reports of an
alliance between _. Guatemala, Nicaragua
and Costa Bica are without foundation iv
"Dark of the whole question there is one
of great interest to Americans — the outlook
for the Nicaragua Canal, and the effect upon
that enterprise resulting from the war. It
is the generally accepted belief in Central
Ameirica, Shd a thoroughly well-founded
one 100, that if Guatemala succeeds in
overcoming San Salvador and Nicaragua,
she will load down the water-way with so
many concessions as to mike its comple
tion impracticable, if not impossible. There
are a good many Americans down there,
and they are to a man interested in tbe de
feat of Guatemala for this reason. The
feeling in Nicaragua regarding her ereat
sister republic in the north is one of friend
ship and esteem. She is small and weak,
but she knows that she holds the key to the
problem of an inter-oceanic transit In which
the United States has the greatest possible
interest. It is a well-known fact that
some years ago French capital, in De Les
sep'n interest, made an eflort to approach
the Government of Nicaragua and prevent
the granting of a concession to build the
great water-way. The scheme was ex
posed at the time in La Estrella de Guate
mala. It is said in Nicaragua that this
same French capital stands ready at any
time to tempt the Guatemalan Government
in the event of her success over San Salva
dor and Nicaragua. It is also reported that
if offered, the money would be accepted
and the proposed building of the canal ef

fete was being given for the benefit
of poor Armenians, was stoned and its
gates and windows broken. The Consul

the cellars of buildings and the fete was
abandoned. The American Mission served
as a refuge for fifty fugitives. Numbers of
Armenians, relying on the promises of
Turks to escort them to places of safety,
were murdered in the streets. Fifty bodies
have been found, mostly of persons who

persons were wounded and 100 are missing.

A PLUCKY AViDOVV.
How She Has Managed to Make a Good
"There are lots of women who are not
making money in Southern California,"
says the Los Angeles Herald of recent date,
"because they think they havo no oppor
tunity. Somo men are in the same situa
tion. All of such people can read with
profit the experience of Mrs. B. A. King of
San Bernardino. This lady up to a few
months ago lived in Oceanslde, but death
deprived her of her husband and she found
it necessary to gain a livelihood. Fortu
nately lor herself and a long-suffering
world she did not know how to paint
placques nor to decorate clamshells, or to
do drawn work or any of the other semi
charitable ruses which gentlewomen in re
duced circumstances commonly resort to,
but she did know how to make preserves
aud " put up" fruit, and so she pluckily
went to work at that. She has contracted
to deliver in Chicago by October Ist 7200
jars of assorted Southern California fruits,
besides cases of sweet pickled apricots and
assorted jellies. If a man were to under
take such a scheme be would hire halt a
dozen helpers, au agent, a broker, and then
think he was working terribly hard. Mrs.
King is doing every bit of the work herself
and intends to go East when the season is
over and take orders for next year's crop."

An Answer to a Recent Letter
From Senator Frye.
Reciprocity Treaties 'With Latin-American
Countries Again Urged.
The Tariff Bill in the Senate— Yance and
McPberson Vigorously Attack
Special Dispatches to The Mohninq Caix.
Washington. July 25.— Senator Frye to
day received a letter from Secretary Blame
in reply to his of recent date. Mr. Blame
says, in part: "You ask me what assurance
I have as to Spain's willingness to enter
into reciprocal arrangements of trade with
tne United States. Your question sur
prises me, for you cannot have forgotten
that only six years ago the Prime Minister
of Spain, in his anxiety to secure free ad
mission to our markets for the sugar of
Cuba and Porto Rico, agreed to a very ex
tensive treaty of reciprocity with Mr. Fos
ter, then our Minister at Madrid. In the
year before— in 1884— a very admirable
treaty of reciprocity was negotiated by
General Grant and Mr. Trescott, United
States Commissioners, with the Republic of
Mexico, as a treaty well considered in all
its parts and all its details, whose results
would, I believe, have proved highly ad
vantageous to both countries. In view of
the pending discussion it is a somewhat
singular circumstance that both of these
treaties failed to secure the approval
of Congress, and failed for the ex
press reason that both provided for
the free admission of sugar. Coneress
would not then allow a single pound of
sugar to come in free of duly under any
circumstances whatever. Aud now the
proposition is to open our ports free to
everybody's sugar, and to do it with such
rapidity that we arc not to have a mo
ment's lime to see if we cannot make a
better trade — a trade by which we may pay
for at least part of the sugar in the prod
ucts of American farms and shops.
"Our change of opinion certainly has
been remarkable in so brief a period. In
deed the only danger of our not securing
advantageous treaties of reciprocity now is
the possible belief ou the part of those
countries that we are so anxious for
free sugar that by patient waitiug they
can secure all they desire without
money and without price. Fearing
that result, I sought an interview with the
eight Republican members of the Commit
tee on Ways and Means more than five
months ago. 1 endeavored to convince
them that it wonld be expedient and wise
to leave to the President an opportunity to
see what advantageous arrangements of
reciprocal trade could be effected, hut 1 was
unable to persuade the committee to tako
"It is, I think, a very grave mistake to
oppose this reciprocal proposition. Far
from the fear that it may conflict in some
way with the policy of protection, the
danger is, I think, wholly in the opposite
direction. The value of the sugar wo an
nually consume is enormous. Khali we pay
for it all in cash or shall we seek reciprocal
arrangements by which a large part of it
may be paid for in pork and beef and flour,
in lumber and in salt and iron, in shoes and
calico and furniture and thousands of other
things? I think tho latter mode is the
highest form of protection und the best
way to promote trade.
" Wheu shall we enlarge our commercial
intercourse with that great continent. South
America, if we do not now make a begin
ning? If wo now give away the duty on
sugar, as we have already given away the
duties on coffee and hides and rubber, and
g-t nothing in exchange which shall be
profitable to farm aud factory in the
United States, what shall be our jus
tification for that policy? You have
recently received congratulations— in which
1 cordially join— on carrying the Shipping
Bill through the Senate. Do you not think
a lino ol ships generously aided by the
Government will have a better prospect for
profit and permanence if we can give to
them outward cargoes from the United
States, and not confine them to inward
cargoes from Latin America?"

Debate on the Tariff Bill an— Memorials
Washington, July 25.— 1u the Senate this
morning Illair presented a memorial from tno
headquarters of a llrand Army Post, expressing
abhorrence at the action of Congress In allowing
pension agents a fee of $10 In each case under
the recent Dependent Pension Act, and enclosing
the circular of a Washington claims agent offer
ing to act for men for half the fee lv all cases
sent to him. lie said he concurred with the
luemoralists In expressing their abhorrence. '
Cockrell presented a memorial from St. Louis,

- Senator Call introduced a resolution Instruct
ing the Committee on Interstate Commerce to
: prepare a bill to compel elevator proprietors to
accept gralu for stoiage at reasonable rales, lit
la Intended chiefly against the combination of
elevator proprietors on the Northern Pacific,
who threaten to refuse grain and compel farm
ers to sell at once. The bill was laid over.
Cock rell had not concluded his remarks on the
Marine Hill at 1 o'clock, when the Tariff Bill
came up as unfinished business.
On motion of Aldrlch, it was agreed that the
formal reading of the bill be dispensed with,
and Vance proceeded to address the Senate.
He said the result of the bill might be to reduce
the revenue to a certain extent, but not to reduce
taxes. What the people desired was a common
sense reduction of the revenue, and correspond
ing relief from the payment of taxes. The Mc-
Kinley bill wis an outrage ou human patience
and an insult to the intelligence of mankind. It
ueUtier reduced lhe revenue, in the sense of re
ducing taxation, nor equalized the duties ou im
ports. On the contrary, it Increased taxation
and made the duties more unequal by Imposing
heavier buidens on the poor man on the rich,
and by so seining a tax ou the necessaries of
life as to shock the moral seuse of every just
Vance went on arraigning the Republican party
for the evils which he claimed protection had
brought upon the country. He quoted from
Blame's letier to Frye, aud said the unmistak
able wisdom of what lhal distinguished man had
said Illustrated the wisdom of what he had left
unsaid. If it were important to extend Ameri
can trade to Central and South America it could
not be unimportant to extend It lo the European
continent, which in wealth and population was
ten times greater. If free trade with the people
of the Latin races were desirable and profitable,
uo reasoning could show that a little free trade
with the people of Teutonic blood was not also
desirable and prolilable.
Plumb said that before proceeding to the con
sideration of the Dill by paragraphs he would
like lo know what the Finance Committee De
lieved would be the effect ol the bill ou the rev
-McPberson said that the almost unanswerable
speeches of Hie Senators from Indiana and Norm
Carolina (Voorhees and Vance) seemed to pre
clude the necessity of any further defense of the
Democratic position. And now the Senator from
Kansas (Plumb) In the simplicity of his nature
Inquired of his own committee for some Informa
tion on ibe bill. Did not the Honorable Senator
know lhat for the past three or four days lhe
newspapers had been full of reports that It had
been resolved, not only by the Finance Commit
tee, bin by the Republican caucus also, not to at
tempt any defense of the pending bill? If the bill
could uot be defended it could not be passed. He
therefore, in order lo expedite business, would
move that the pending bill be re-committed to
the Committee on Finance with Instructions to
report, at the earliest practicable moment, a bill
lo leduce Ihe revenue and equalize the duties on
Impoits on the basis that the average rale of
duly should not exceed the average ad valorem
war tariff rate of 1804.
McPberson llieu launched out In a review of
the tauff question In general and the pending
bill in particular. He undeitook to show that
neither the farmer nor consumer would be beue
fi'ed by It. He referred to the campaign of
1888 as one lv which immense sums of mouey
had been corruptly raised and corruptly used iv
behalf of lhe Itepublicau ticket. That money
had beeu raised, he said, amoug the beneficiaries
ot lhe pending bill. Chief among ihem was a
Pious citizen of Pennsylvania, who since had
been rewarded with a seat in the Cabinet as the
price of his villainy.
Sherman criticized McPherson's remarks as
to reducing the average rate under the pending
bill lo the average rate existing In 1804, and ex
plained lhat the average of 36.69 was made upon
all goods then dutiable and undutiable: but that
at thai time not more than 10 or 15 per cent of
Imported goods would be on the free list, and If
the average rale of duly wire asceitained on du
tiable and undutiable goods it would be not 52

Plumb complained that no detailed statement

asked who was luleiesied in producing lhat state
of things. lie thought in reporting the bill mat

amendments to the bill to increase the revenue

bill that he thought would be a cowardly evasion
of the duty imposed li; on Hie Senate to provide
adequate means to meet the expenses of the
Government. He would propose a ouly on in

Allison defended the Senate from the charges
of extravagance in the mailer ot appropriation
Aldilcli expressed the opinion that McPherson
was not serious lv his motion, and remarked that
If It were carried out into a law Hie ellect would
be to increase the reveuue by $110,000,000 over
the amount lhat would be produced by the pend
ing bill. v
t'oiman asked Aldrlch to give the Senate a
fiank and fair statement as lo the probable re
sults of the bill if enacted into a law.
Aldnch said If the importations for the next
fiscal year were the same as last the revenue
would be reduced about $20,000, 000. He could
not give the figures as lo expenditures. They
did not lnteud to create a deficit knowingly anil

Both Pitchers Required a

Carsey and Hoffman Give Twenty Bats
men First Base on Balls.
A Miserable Game Won by tbe Senators.
Frisco Loses to Stockton Contests
on Eastern Diamonds.
It would be difficult to select a game
played in the California League that would
outclass in miserable work yesterday's
fiasco between the Oakland and Sacramento
teams. It was a pitchers' contest— notjin
the sense of keeping the hits down or strik
ing out batters, but Messrs. Carsey and
Hoffman eagerly fought for the palm for
wildness. At the close of the game honors
were even between them, both having sent
ten men to bases on balls, but Carsey had
made a better record in a single inning. In
the fifth inning, when Oakland had secured
a lead of two runs, the youug twirler began
tossing the ball all around the batsman, and
Umpire Gagus ordered eight Senators to the
initial cushion. Errors by Stickuey, Swee
ney and McDonald and two safe hits were
sandwiched between the bases on balls, and
when the third man was finally pat out ten
runs were pegged up for Sacramento.
Hoffman's streak of non-control cropped
up at various stages of the play, and four of
the men he sent to first afterward crossed
the plate. His support was good, but three
errors being made by the visitors up to the
last inning, when Coughlin, who took Good
enough's place, dropped a fly ball. Beitz's
misplay was a fumble of a ground hit, and
the error let in two runs. The second base
man played a fine game outside of this
blunder, aud Daly accepted some hard
chances at short.
When Carsey let up in his vain endeavor
to find the plate, Stickney began to loom up
as a subject for one of Charlie Heed's jokes.
Dill was in an indifferent mood, and he
didn't seem to care much whether or not
batted balls passed him. He had five errors
Twenty-three runs were scored by the
two teams, ana but one was earned. That
run was the lonely feature of the game. In
the sixth inning Dungan was at bat aud
Hoffman tossed a slow* ball up to the plate.
Dungan gauged the curve correctly and
rapped the ball over the right field fence for
a home run. It was a comical sight to see
the grand stand player getting around the
bases as last as his legs could curry him.
He was afraid of being cheated out of the
four bagger by some trick, and was de
termined to get home without loss of time.

THE SILVER MARKET.
Great Britain's Unsuccessful Effort ta
Reduce Current Prices.
New York, July 25.— Zimmerman &
Foshay, large exporters of silver, predict
that the price will not fall in London below
the price existing before the passage of the
The Mail and Express says: Since the
first movement in silver, during a period in
which the price has risen 15 cents an ounce.
Great Britain sold us little less than two
million ounces at prices sor 0 cents below
the current Quotation. During the present
week we have shipped back again almost as
much as that at an advance of current
prices, and the effort to break our market
bas proven au ignominious failure. There
is now no chance whatever of our losing
control of the silver market, which has
been so suddenly taken away from Great
A special to the Evening Post from
Washington gives an interview with Mint
Director Leach. Be says that the Depart
ment will uot tako advantage of the dis
cretion vested in the Secretary, but that the
law will be carried out to the letter and
spirit, just as Congress intended it should
be. " We shall buy 4,500,000 ounces .of sil
ver every month without reservation, and
shall pay the full market price for it, what
ever that may be, provided only that it falls
within the limit set by the terms of the law.
Congress intended to expend the volume of
money in circulation, and that end is. ac
complished by the new silver law as we in
terpret that act here is the Treasury. The
currency in circulation, or peihnps I had
belter say the money in circulation, for
Treasury notes will not be mere prom
ises to pay, but the legal tender
money, will be increased by tho entire
amount of the Government's outlay
in its purchases every month. Those who
hold a contrary view proceed upon the as
sumption that we shall use the money now
in the Treasury to purchase this silver.
That is a mistake. Under the act of 1878
we purchased silver bullion with the money
in the Treasury and immediately replaced
it with silver dollars coined from the silver
so purchased ; but; although uuder the new
act we could, if the law so provided, pur
chase silver bullion with the surplus money
in the Treasury, we should thereby reduce
the amount of money which could be put
into circulation by the purchase of bonds
for the Sinking Fund and the retirement of
the public debt. As it is we shall add to
the currency of the country by the whole
amount of purchases required by this new
form of full legal tender money, leaving
the money now iv the Treasury for the pur
pose already mentioned.
"By way of illustration, the situation is
the same as if the Government were com
mitted to the purchase of say one ship every
mouth of the value of 51,500.000 or 85,000,
--000, the currency paid for each of those
ships, if not drawn from the. stock on hand
but issued directly and expressly for these
payments, would go into circulation and in
crease the volume of currency afloat just
"Is there any apprehension of a failure
of the law when it comes to the redemption
of these silver notes in gold colu?"
" We do not anticipate auy stress on that
account. The notes issued will have a basis
satisfactory probably to the mass of the peo
ple, and I doubt whether there will be any
demand worth mentioning for a redemp
tion in gold. I may say this, however, that
the Secretary will meet every demand for
gold as long as he has a dollar's worth left
that he can use for that purpose. II the
supply runs dry he will resort to the means
provided by law to replenish his stock or
appeal to Congress for further legislation."

Skins on Fire
With Itching, Burning, Bleeding
Eczemas Instantly Relieved
by Cuticura Remedies.
Our little son will be four years or age on the 25th-
last. In May, 1885, he was attacked with a very
painful breaking out of the skin. We called lv a
physician, who treated him for about four weeks.
The child received little or no good trom the treat-
ment, as the breaking out, supposed by tbe physi-
cian to be hives in an aggravated form, became
larger in blotches, and mure and more distressing.
We were frequently obliged to get up In the night,
and rub him with soda and water, strong liniments,
etc. Finally, wo called other physlclaus, until no
less than six nad attempted to cure him, all alike
falling, and the child steadily getting worse aud
worse, until about the 'Jdtb of last July, when we
began to give him Cuticura K__.ioi.vkst internally
and the Cuticura and Cuticura Soai* externally,
and by the last of August he was so nearly well that
we gave liim only one dose of the Kksolvknt
about every second day for about ten days longer,
and he has never been troubled since with tbe hor-
rid malady, in alt we used less than oue hair or a
bottle or Cuticura Kksolvknt, a tittle less than
one box of Cuticura, and only one cake of Cuti-

Parents, do yon realize how your little ones suffer,
when their tender skins are literally on fire with
itching, burning, scaly, and blotched skin and scalp
diseases ? To know that a single application of the
Cuticura Kemkuiks will often m1, .r.l Instant re-
lief, permit rest aud sleep, and point to a permanent
and economical (oecause so speely) cure, aud not
to use them, witnout a moment's delay, Is to be
guilty of positive Inhumanity. So greater legacy
can be bestowed upon a child than a clear skin and
pure blood. Cuticura Kemkuiks are absolutely
pure, aud may be used from infancy to age, from
pimples to scrofula.
