Willi its petmanent buildings, monuments
and cathedrals, the pride ol Buenos Ayres,
is situated near the water-line, and occu
pies eight acres. The battle-field is where
the finest buildings and statues in the city
would be exposed to artillery lire. With
the insurgents bombarding the Govern
ment house and in possess! of theniilitary

already assured. he revolutionary leaders^
' when masters of the capital,. will virtually
have won the whole campaign. The same
causes of dissatisfaction which brought*
on the revolt iv Buenos- A -.res
. will be likely to prejudice public opinion in
the provincial towns against an adminis
tratis that has been the most reck
less aud lunate iv . its financial
• policy. The large foreign element
-in the provinces, which has been
recruited mainly from Italy, takes
little interest in the political rivalries and
has no heart for civil war. lf the insurgent
leaders can restore order in the capital and
organize a new eovernuient that will have
to; no claim to public confidence they
will probably be allowed for
a season to establish a military
dictatorship. Argentine has been re

says he did not altogether agree with the
denials that the revolution is a military one.
On the contrary be affirms that all the
prominent men connected with it are
civilians. The leading spirit in the move
ment is Dr. Alejandro Alem, who lent)
soldier, but has been President of . the
"Union Civica," a political club, composed
of an clement hostile to the financial policy
of Celman's administration. Genera! Manuel
J. Campos, he says. Is merely an instru

undoubtedly gave general dissatisfaction,
especially among the soldiers, with whom,
he is exceedingly popular. 4- ftgfl'.'H

Special Dispatches to The Morning Call.
Washington, July 28.— A handsome
well-dressed young man, giving the name of
Jack Samuels and residence San Francisco,
had a lively experience during his brief so
journ of 24 hours in this city. lie com
plained that Washington was a dull sleepy
village, whereat two conespondents on
Newspaper Row suggested a pleasant di
version, and accordingly introduced to his
notice Mrs. Charlotte E. Smith, the woman
who has been annoying Mrs. Mackay.
Young Samuels conceived the idea' that
It would be a fine joke to impersonate
Nathan Bijur, the detective-lawyer of New
York, who had Mrs. Mackay's case in
charge, and who recently cabled that lady
that Charlotte Smith was crack-brained,
end should not be heeded. This naturally
aroused the ire of Mrs. Smith, and she
swore out a warrant for the arrest of
Nathan Bijur, charging him with the lar
ceny of $1 and certain valuable papers.
The existence of such warrant was un
known to Samuels, and after he bad par
leyed with her for some time in a futile
effort to "effect a compromise" between
Mrs. Mackay aud the editress, tlie latter
lady withdrew from tho company of
the Sau Franciscan and his companions
and rang for a policeman to arrest "Nathan
Bijur." The young man was forewarned,
however, through a friendly agency, and
hied himself to his hotel, where he was
secreted, the while keeping up a vigilant
outlook. At last he ventured out, but
abated no' prudent provisions against sur
prise. He managed to elude her, and to
ward dark to-night boarded a Pennsylvania
train, which moved out just as the breath
less Mrs. Smith, acconn anied by a police
man, appeared at the railing which sepa
rates the waiting-room from the railway
As she perceived the receding railway
bearing away her "Nathan Bijur," she ges
ticulated wildly with her umbrella aud gave
vent to several hysterical little screams, ac
companied by facial contortions which did
not enhance her native beauty the least.
She retired disappointed and discom filed.
Mrs. Smith is a woman of literary accom
plishment, but is evidently a monomaniac
on the subject of bettering the condition of
womankind. It is said she applied to Mrs.
Mackay for money iv aid of tne "scheme,"
aud being refused resorted to defamatory
publications about Mrs. Mackay. ,

Washington, July 28.— First Assistant
Postmaster-General Clarkson returned to
day from bis six weeks' visit to the Pacific
Slope, and resumed his duties at the Post
office Department. To a representative of
the California Associated Press who called
upon him, the General spoke of his trip and
treatment in the highest manner. He said
he found the people uf tlie Slope to he a
most progressive class, and he was really
astonished at the wonderful energy and
push they displayed. lie liad heard before
his departure on bis trip of this, but was
inclined to doubt it. Now, after visiting
that section he was almost prepared to be
lieve anything that was told him. He said
the Pacific Slope was, indeed, a wonderful
country, and its citizens were wide
awake aud ready to lake advantage
of every opportunity that arose. In
regard to mail facilities, which he went
to investigate, he staled that he had noted
a number of places where mail service could
be improved, and he would incorporate his
views in a report to the Postmaster-General
urging certain changes which he believed
would be a benefit to all classes.
On the subject of a site for the San Fran
cisco Postoffice, he was decidedly reticent.
He stated that he bad been requested to in
vestigate various sites offered and report as
to winch one, in his opinion, was best
suited for the needs of the Government. He
had made this investigation, but as yet had
been unable to report, lie expected to have
a conference with the Postmaster-General
this afternoon and with the Secretary of the
Treasury to-morrow, and would then give
them his views on the matter. Until he re
ported to them lie thought it inadvisable to
give any indication as to what recommend
ation he would make.
In another interview he said: "My tour
comprehended all important cities west of
Chicago and north of Kansas City. No one
can understand how rapidly that great
country is developing until he sees it. It
has not in any ol the departments of tlie
Government the official facilities that it Is
eutitled to. I traveled on a fast mail train
from Central lowa to Portland, Oregon,
which makes a good deal of the time sixty
seven miles per hour, and the service is
very efficient, and other last mails are being
brought up to the standard of efficiency."
Postoffices in cities that have been doubling

increased allowances for nearly all of them,
and some of these have already been grant

Tho Tariff Bill Finally Taken Up for Con-
Washington. July 28.— 1n the Senate
this morning the bill to pension all the sur
viving officers and men of Powell's battal
ion of Missouri Mounted Volunteers, raised
during the war with Mexico, was passed.
— * - *Vl£
Aldrich offered, a resolution fixing the
daily hour of meeting at 11 o'clock. Ingalls
suggested an understanding that the busi
ness of the morning hour shall be con
sidered closed at 1 o'clock. Allison did not
wish it Implied that the Senate would de
vote two hours a day to morning business.
Ingalls said lie did wish just such an im
plication. ' As soon as the Tariff Bill, the
Appropriation bills and the Election Bill
were passed, Congress would undoubtedly
adjourn promptly, therefore whatever was
to be done between now aud the time of ad
journment, in consideration of measures
on the calendar, would have to be dune in
the morning hour. There were several
hundred bills ou the calendar entitled to
Cockrell asked what was the use of the
Senate passing bills when the distinguished
gentleman iv charge of the House did I not
give any attention to them. There were
now on the calendar of the House hundreds
aud hundreds of bills passed by the Seuate
and no attention paid to them. Among
them was a bill refunding the direct tax,
also two bills recently passed, and regarded
on the other side of the chamber as very
lm; ortant measures, the shipping bills, aud
they were being left tu" sleep the sleep
that knows no waking."
llawley did not agree with Co.krell. He
wanted his own ammunition in order, so he
could go home with a clear record.
- The resolution as to meeting at 11 o'clock
was agreed to, with the understanding that
the Senate shall adj urn at 0 o'clock.
. Aldrich moved to proceed to the consid
eration of ihe Tariff Bill. That motion was
antagonized by Gray to proceed to the con
sideration of the House bill for the transfer
of the Revenue Marine to ' the Navy De
partment. - The ; latter motion ' was agreed
to- -ayes 20, noes 2.1. • , *<; > : , :.
Cockrell continued his argument in oppo
sition to the bill, and had not concluded
his speech when, at 2 o'clock, the presiding
officer laid ' before the Senate the Tariff
Bill as unfinished business.
Gray moved to continue the consideration
of the Revenue Marine Bill.
Frye said the friends of the Revenue Bill
had occupied but an hour and a half upon
it and its enemies, a small majority, all the
rest of the time. It was as evident to the
Senate as if their purpose had been an
nounced that tbe time had been occupied
for the purpose of preventing a vote on the
measure. That only indicated (what he
believed in), the necessity of the previous
question In the Senate or some way to stop
debate, or some way to prevent a Senator
from getting up every morning for three or
four mornings in succession and reading
from the report of the Clerk in the Treas
ury Department. Why should not the vote
be taken on tbe bill if there is a majority of
the Senate in favor of it"? Why should it
not be permitted to say so? The Senator
from Ohio (Sherman) had made four speech
es upon the bill, and in the. course of them
read the same identical articles, which the
Senator Irom Missouri has occupied the
last three mornings in reading.
Finally Gray's motion was rejected— ayes
14, noes 34.
The Tariff Bill was then taken up, and
Vest addressed the Senate in opposition to
it. The advocates of high tariff taxation,
he said, were confronted by a great peril.
Depression in agricultural interests, and
the emphatic demands of the farmers for
something besides lying statistics and
frothy declaration had caused President-
Harrison and Secretary Blame to urge upon
Congress legislation for subsidies to steam
ships and for reciprocity treaties with South
American States in order to obtain a for
eign market for American products. Very
little was heard now of the home market,
but a gieat deal of tho South American
market. So at last protectionists have been
driven from their pretentious humbui^aboiit
a home market and were forced to adopt
the principle of free commercial inter
course which tbey had so long opposed and
derided. Vest went'on to criticize the pro
visions of the pending bill that are sup
posed to be for the benefit of farmers, and
said what the farmers wanted was the open
ing and enlargement of the foreign mar
kets for their surplus wheat, corn, cattle
and pork, and a decrease of the tariff duty
on clothing, hardware, tins and oilier nec
essary articles of daily and incessant use
by the farmer and bis family. The pend
ing bill, he declared, was to repay mill
owners their contributions to the campaign
fund of the Republican party during the
last Presidential canvass, and as the plant
ers of the South were Democrats the du
ties on northern .manufacturers were in
creased, while the duty on rice was dimin
ished. Consumers in • the United
States were being systematically plundered
under the pretense of protection to home
industries. No further concealment is pos
sible, The truth is at last revealed. Man
ufacturers who were persistently asking for
higher duties to exclude foreign competi
tion were availing themselves of the mo
nopoly given by an exclusive tariff to
charge the people of this country from 20 to
70 per cent higher for their goods than toey
could sell the same articles for in unpro
tected markets of the world. It was no
longer protection, hut pure, simple, naked
plunder. Americans boasted of their free
institutions, of liberty and equality, but
who, he asked, could call himself a free
man, save in mockery, when by a course of
law the proceeds of his life and labor were
unjustly taken to enrich another?
Turpie addressed the Senate briefly on
Mcl'berson's resolution to recommit the
bill with instructions to report a bill to re
duce the revenue and to equalize the duties
on imports in which the average ad valorem
rate of duty on all dutiable articles shall
not exceed the average ad valorem war
tariff rate of 1-04.- lie declared himself not
satisfied with the instructions, If there
was a choice to he made between the pend
ing bill and the Morrill tariff of 1884, be
would choose the Morrill tariff. But as the
proposed instructions were simply an ex
pression of opinion of that great leader of
the people who polled a majority of the
people for his re-election, the scheme
would be an imposition of lower du
ties on things in general ■'• use and
of higher rates on articles- s of luxury
and refinement, the total sum of the levy
not to exceed ihe necessary expenses of the
Government aud the interest on the national
dtbt. .-:,-v --.-■ -•■-'■
The question was taken on the motion to
recommit and wasdeleated by a strict party
vote— ayes 19, noes 29.
The leading of the bill by paragraphs for
amendment 'was begun, the first schedule
being that as to chemicals, oils and paints.
Mcpherson moved to reduce the duty on
acetic or byroligneous acid not exceeding
specific gravity of 0.147 from I ,_ cents
to i cent per pound and on acid exceeding
that specific gravity from 4 to 3 cents per
pound. The vote was : Ayes' 15, noes 23—
Plumb offered a resolution, which was
agreed to, calling on Secretary Carr for in
formation as to the rules established ior
admission to Soldiers' homes, and inquiring
if such admissions are based wholly or iv
part on the amount of pension, and whether
exceptions to those rules are made aud in
what cases ami for what reasons.

KILLED IN CHURCH.
The Armenian Cathedral the Scene of Riot
and Bloodshed. -
Constantinople, . July 28. — A large
crowd of Armenians gathered in the Arme
nian Cathedra) in this city yesterday for
: the puipose of remonstrating with the Pa
triarch of the Church for his weak action
toward the Porte regarding outrages perpe
trated by the Turks in Armenia, and to de
mand bis resignation. One of the crowd
mounted a chair in the cathedral and de
manded that the Patriarch explain the
events that had occurred at Erzerouni and
the position of affairs in Armenia. The
Patriarch protested against the action of
the mob, and declared a sacred edifice was
no place for such a demonstration. This
answer to their demands exasperated the
mob, and they rushed upon the Patriarch,
■ dragged him from the pulpit and otherwise
maltreated liim. After being very roughly
treated the Patriarch finally succeeded in
breaking loose and made his escape. Mili
tary assistance was asked for, and a body of
Turkish troops was sent to restore order, but
when they entered the cathedral and tried
to clear the building tbey met with a des
perate resistance. -'- The mob was armed
with revolvers , and spiked staves, and a
bloody confiict ensued between them and
the troops. Four of the soldiers and sev-'
eral rioters" were killed and others were in
jured before the ■ mob was driven from the
building. The cathedral is now closed.

"Saints and Sinners" at the Baldwin— "Lights
a.d Shadows" at the Bash-Street.
" Vice-Admiral" at the Tivoll.
That closely considered and thoroughly
well constructed drama "Saints and Sin
ners," by Henry Arthur 'Jones, was en
joyed by a large and fashionable audience
at the Baldwin last evening. There is a
wide difference between its motive aud
action and that of the piece to which last
week **_■ devoted; but' there .are
equally as great opportunities in
Jones' work ns there are in
Lumley's for strong and pointed acting.
The principal character— Jacob Fletcher,
minister of Bethel Chapel, Steepleford— is
in the hands of that most accomplished
actor, Mr. J. 11. Stoddart, and for an elab
orate, truthful piece of work bus never
been excelled. Like many of Dickens'
novels, the D.ay was evidently written for a
purpose— the purpose, in this case, being to
show the unfair dealing of ignorant and
purse-proud members of English dissenting
congregations in dealing with their minis
ters. As Samuel Hoegard, a tanner
and senior deacon of the Bethel,
Mr. Frederic Robinson made a vivid picture
of the cold-blooded; rapacious worldling
under the guise of religion, and Charles W"
Butler as Prabble, a grocer aud junior,
deacon, worked out the' creature aud will
ing tool of ' 11 oggaid in a manner to call for
applause from the audience. Mr. £. M.
Holland had' a comparat ively. small part iii

in fact the small parts were brought
into prominence both by make-up and line
acting touches? _..__. Tyler's Jack Rad
dles, Barry Holiday's Uncle Bramberry,
and Herbert Milward's Peter Greeuacre.
were among the parts so projected. Mr..
Edward Bell played Ralph Kingsmill,
Letty Fletcher's affianced, in splendid,
manly fashion, defying the villain Fan
shawe and public opinion at the same
time, in bis love for Letty Fletcher,
whom Faushawe (Barrymore) had
ruined. Maud Harrison made a pretty
character of Letty — suffering under
a great wrong which not even the deep
sympathy of her broken-hearted father, or
the manly stand taken by her lover, Ralph,
could repair. Some of the scenes between
the Rev. Jacob aud his housekeeper (Mrs.
E. J. Phillips) were full ol fine shades of
human nature at its best and teuderest*
the scene between the minister and Hog
gard, where the latter offer*, to conceal his
knowledge of Letty's downfall in case the
tortured minister consents to a valuation of
the property that will rob the widow and
fatherless for the aggrandizement
of the demon, was a brave assertion of cor
rect moral principle in the face of the
strongest temptation to the contrary that
any man can be subjected to. AltonetlnT,
"Saints and Sinners" is in all parts of its
cast a valuable and most enjoyable example
of the best form of sta_e work. It will bo
repeated this evening.
. The orchestra played during the evening
two selections from the ilinrichs competi
tive list — "Remembrance of i huriiigia,"
by Carl yon der Mehden, and (</; "Allium
Leaf" and (6) "Concert Mazurka," by Mel

" *.i*rhtß autt .Shadow*."
The Bush-street Theater is for the nonce
given up to melodrama. Last evening Mr.
Joseph R. Grismer and Miss Phoebe Davies,
supported by their own company, began a
season at this house in Mr. diaries Gayler's
work, "Lights aud Shadows"— said to have
had a most successful run in New York
last season. It is sensational enough, to
suit the tastes of those play -goers
who - find amusement In this class of
dramatic entertainment. Some of the
situations aro intense, even if im
probable, but that is a matter about
which an audience does uot trouble itself
much. So long as the play goes biff
bang that is all that is looked for. After
all, people do not go to a theater to find
fault with what a manager sets before
them, but to derive as much pleasure and
amusement as possible out of the en
tertainment. "Liehts and Shadows" has a
good deal of thrill in it. and some of it is of
a blood-curdling character. The story
is one of revenge— kind of ven
detta—and shows what a woman
will do sometimes to eet even with her
betrayer. There is a she-devil in Mr.
Grismer's play whose thirst for vengeance
seems unappeasable, seeking every oppor
tunity to injure the kith and kin of. the
man who wronged her. She has a young
lady abducted and tortures her in a diaboli
cal manner. This is done within hearing of
her enemy's son, the lover ef the unfortu
nate girl, and who is powerless to inter
fere. This furnishes a thrilling situation.
For a first-night performance the play went
very smoothly. A number of alterations iv
the dialogue and stage business might
be made to advantage. Mr. Grismer had
the leading role, Mark Melbiirn— a man
that passes through a good* many hair
breadth escapes, and comes out outwardly
unscathed. He played it carefully aud
well. Miss Phoebe Davies, as the suffering
heroine, Edith Brougliton, was ladylike,
earnest and sympathetic, and, with Mr.
Grismer, was called several times " before
the curtain. Mr. James E. Carden
was cast for Rufus Meiburn, a
man seeking to keep up a position
in the world by a false show", and who ap
propriates his nephew's money to do
' this, subsequently killing himself. This
sterliug actor made the most of his oppor
tunities. He. also doubled the part of
Claude Maul, an aitist, but the pains be
stowed upon it was unworthy his abilities.
Mr. Scott Cooper, Mr. Lorlmer Johnston
and Mr. George H. Trader did their share
of the work very effectively. Miss Delia
Macquaid and Miss Sarah Stevens afforded
valuable aid. "Lights and * Shadows"
should do a good week's business. *
Miss M. Harnard will give a grand fare
well concert In this city prior to departure
East, where she takes her place as prima
donna of the Mendelssohn Quintet.
Miss Gertrude Bucklin, pupil of the late
Karl Formes, aud who has continued her

causing a higher and excited opening of
wheat, corn and oats. Wheat started in

cents in different parts of the pit, and a
heavy demand from the shorts held it
steadily at the higher point until 10:13
o'cljek in the morning, when it was quoted
at 95% cents. Corn, under the same con
ditions, started in almost 2 cents higher
than Saturday's close, at 45% cents to 45
cents, and "soon advanced to 47"_ cents
under sharp buying. Fifteen minutes after
the opening it dropped to 40% cents.

Porter has transmitted to Representative

population is about 340,000. In bis letter
Mr. Porter says: "These postal-cards show
the names which numerators took each
day. If there is no change in the estimates
the population will be about what is repre
sented on the table. You will, of course,
understand that this is not in any sense an
official estimate, nor is it an estimate upon
which you could absolutely rely. I might
add, however, that the chances are that
the population will exceed rather than be
less than this."
