Owing to the apparent inaction of the
Salvador army during the past few days
General Sanchez had been recalled to the
capital of Guatamnla to make ar
raugements for fortifying that city and
Colonel Juanuel Uarrcra was left in charge.
Barrera and his troops were surprised by
the Salvadorians aud retreated with a
loss of 4' 0 men and nine pieces
of artillery. Barren had his
lee shot off and was otherwise
seriously Injured. It is believed he will
recover. The Salvador rtonps lost nearly
400 men, but elated with their victory they
continued to pursue the enemy toward

thai San Salvador Is now In a most precari

Guatemala. The prospects of the success
of this little army crow smaller with each
engagement. 1. is still pushing forward
into the enemies' country, but it is believed,
however, that when Guatemala and .Hon

Then it is thought It will be time for
Nicaragua ami Costa Kica to take the field.
Even then. lowever, unless Mexico comes
.to the aid of the smaller States the proba
bilities are that Guatemala will be enabled
to impose her rule upon the entire country
and substitute a centralized military Gov
ernment for the proposed Federal Union.
Meanwhile Guatemala has to settle a se
rious account with the United States on
account of seizure by Guatemala of war
supplies on board the Pacific Mail steamer
Colima, which were legally shipped at San
Francisco for San Salvador. No Intimation
' had been given of the state of siege hav
ing been declared before the Colima sailed.
It is understood here that Blame has taken
prompt action in the matter. Aside from
this episode, strong hopes are entertained
among a large circle that the United States
will put forth its best endeavors to smooth
over the quarrel and stop the war ere it
goes too far.

D:sa = trrc<s Interruption to Lake Cemmtrce.
Savi.t St. Mame (Mich.), Aug. 4.— The
lock-valve of the St. Mary's Canal, which
became disabled last Thursday, has been
repaired aud passages were resumed this
morninc, after a delay of eighty
nine hours to lake commerce. No
cause can be given fur the valve breaking,
except that the wrist which held it in its
bearing was not of sufhVifint strength to
support the immense weight of the
valve, and the principal cause of
delay to the repairs was the pumps
givinz out. There have been 150
vessels tied up here, representing about
£10,000,000 aud carrying about 6000 tons
i f cargo. The direct loss to
vssels is about $200,000, which, with
the general public loss, raises this
to about 5200.000. The lake commerce can
not recover from this delay inside of two
months. Six hundred passengers on the
steamers have been delayed bere since

President Harrison and Secretary Blame
Among the Witnesses of the Episode.
A Life Guard Hurt.
Special Dispatches to The Mobnin'o Call.
Philadelphia, Aug. 4.— The Ledger's
Cape May special says: President Hurri-
Eon and Secretary Blame, while strolling
on the beach this morning, were Involun
tary witnesses of a struggle lor life in the
surf by several bathers. A short distance
Irom the shore a raft Is anchored, and tlie
tide was beginning to run out when an uu
usually large wave came rushing in. The
wave struck the raft and swept over it,
sweeping some of the bathers luto tbo
Among those who were swept off was
Mrs. Diiumick, a niece of Mrs. Harrison,
but fortunately before she realized her dan
ger she was caugnt by John Butkinan and
dragged into shoal water. Miss Florence
Uazzird. who is a good swimmer, had
boldly dived into the breaker.-, but she mis
calculated the power of the out-going
water and was being drawn out to sea
when she was rescued and brought to the
shore by her father.
The bi« wave also threw Miss Mcllhenny
of Wilmington into the water and the tide
becan to carry her out to sea. Carl Strauss
went to her assistance, but soon became
exhausted. A. W. Buck, seeing the peril
of the two, swam to them, but finding Him
self untgtial to the task of bringing them
both in, told Strauss to save himself and he
wculd help Miss Mcllhenuy. In the mean
time the life-guard had launched his boat to
go to the rescue of the struggling trio. But
before he got through the surf the boat was
upset and he himself was dashed against it
aud rendered helpless.
Alter a desperate struggle, during wbich
Stiauss had reached the shore, Buck finally
brought Miss Mcllhenny In. After Miss
McXlhenny was in safety Buck, exhausted
by bis gallant efforts to save her, fell in a
fainting condition on the sands. As Buck
lay en the sand the President kept the
crowd back. After a short time Buck re
covered sufficiently to go to his hotel.
DKATU OF A CENTENARIAN.
Oldest Person in Ealtimcre end the Last of
the Old Defenders' Acsociation.
Baltlmoke, Auj. 4.— Mrs. Elizabeth
Sands, probably the oldest i erson in Balti
more, the Jast of the Old Defenders' Associa
tion, died yesterday, one hundred and one
years of age. Mrs. .-ami- vias born March
7, 17b9. In ISOS she married I'eter Smiek, a
jeweler, who joined the army to repel the
British iuvail.-rs in 1812. While in
Annapolis he contracted fever, aud his wife
with four children went down to nurse him.
Sue remained in camp, enduring all the
privations of a soldier, and ministered to
tin- wants of all the sick. Her husband
never recovered, but even alter his death
she continued with the army as nurse. She
was tit the battle of North l'oint, aud many
a wounded soldier owed to her cure his life.
When the war ended she had not a dollar
and was compelled to sew to maintaiu her
family. In 1834 she married John Sands,
but hu died five years Inter, leaving her will)
two more children. Again she plied the
needle and wai getting along nicely wheu
her daughter, who had married, uiod and
left another family ou her hands. These
married again, and she took care of even
the fourth generation, She has outlived all
her children, the last to go being I'eter
Smiefc, who died six mouths ago at the age
of seventy-seven. Of later years she spent
her time tunkiug rag carpets. She was re
markably active and climbed the stairs
twenty or thirty times a day. It is proposed
to bury her with military honors.
Nothing D' finitely Kiown Receding the
Day and Hour of Keram'.er's Execution.
Auijvbx, Aug. 4.— The highest authority
affirms that Kiiiiinlcr is nut sick, insane or
collapsed, lie sits and waits and he does
it with as much and as little of trepidation
as a man of his mental and physical cali
ber might be expected to experience, He
is in suspense and so is every one else.
There is nothing else to do. Meantime
rumors may multiply. Thus far there
seems little reason to repeat them. A man
is to be executed. The mail who decides
when has not yet publicly spoken. The
situation has a week for its boundary, and
there is all there is of it. The legal ques
tion cited in these dispatches last night is
being carefully thought about here, by some
with curious Interest, by others with the quiet
purpose to reach a conclusion. Tho ques
tion seems very simple. Is the form of sen
tence valid which gives one man power to
make it inoperative by delaying the execu
tion of the death penalty until the last day
of the designated seven, and which under
the general law is no day In the eye of the
This afternoon a postman carried into the
prison a registered letter addressed to
William Kemmlcr. The postmark was
Philadelphia, and on the envelope was
written: "Fro m your brother, Henry
Kemmler." Doubtless this communication,
it was thought by the writer, would be the
last to pass between the two brothers. At
4 o'clock this afternoon Warden
Dunston told an Associated Press
representative that the execution would
not take place within the next twenty-four
hours. Hearing upon this point Is a private
dispatch received in this city from Buffalo,
stating that invited witnesses to the execu
tion had been asked to be present in Auburn
at 7 o'clock Tuesday evening. Reasoning
from these facts, people, are divided in
opinion as to whether Kemmler will die to
morrow! or Wednesday evening. Doubtless
more people here are of the belief that
Wednesday morning will bo the time of the

of the ruins. No others were killed, though
several had narrow escapes from being
caught in the flames. Mr. Bosworth was

a flash light, and the explosion of the chem

they weighed about four times more than
they should. He finally took them to an
other expert and it was decided to break

in our own market the required 4,500,000
ounces monthly, but if London is put to
straits to obtain Its requirement of silver
the price to which the metal will go will be
limited only by the clause in the new law
specifying a cessation of purchases when
silver is on a par with gold.

Yesterday's .Proceedings in the
The Senate Calls for Information Regarding
the Sault Ste. Marie Canal.
Amendments to the Glassware and Crockery
Schedule — Speaker Reed Denounced b)
BpecUl Dijpatcties to The Mobnixq Call.
Washington, Aug. 4.— ln the Senate this
morning Davis offered a resolution calling
op the Secretary of War for information on
tne subject of the accident last Friday to
the lock of the Sault Ste. Marie Canal. lie
spoke of it as a most serious calamity to
the commerce of the nation, costing, as he
had been informed by telegraph, 8500,000 a
day. He also mentioned incidentally the
failure of the House to act on the bill passed
by the Senate Borne months ago, providing
for & second and larger lock.
Cullom hoped the House would be in
duced to take up that measure and pass It,
If not it would be well enough for the Sen
ate to take up the River and Harbor Bill at
an earlier day than had been agreed upon,
so as to have an appropriation secured for
that very important work.
Cockrell inquired whether the business
branch of Congress had paid no attention to
the bill referred to.
Cullom said it had not.
Cockrell said that it was very remarkable
that that body, organized with one man for
the purpose of transacting business, will
not do it.
Payne said he did BOt know how delicate
one had to bo in talking about the other
House, but he was informed that the bill
had been approved by the Hiver and Harbor
Committee of the House, but that for sev
eral months past the committee had not
!^ fa able to get a hearing for it before the
House. There was where the matter stood.
Whether it would be an net of humiliation
lor the Senate to ask the other House re
spectfully to act on that bill, be would not
undertake to judge; but something ought
to be dove.
Edmunds did not think it a proper tiling
to spend the lime in discussing the conduct
of the other branch of Congress. All that
the Senate had to do with it just now was
to consider the accident to the canal lock,
and he thought that, as the appropriations
uuide in the Hiver and Harbor Bill of a year
ago aie still in force, the Engineer Depart
ment had money enough at its disposal to
remedy tne effects. If so, there is no bene
fit in tfae Senate making • very extraordi
nary display of itself on the subject.
Payne says the damage was being re
paired as fast as 500 men could do It, and it
would be completed to-morrow or next day,
but the main object of the appeal to Con
cress was that provision should be made
for an additional luck.
After further discussion the resolution
was agreed to.
The resolution offered Saturday by Plumb
as to the reinterment of the remains of
Grant in the Arlington National Cemetery
v>»s, at the suggestion of Plumb, allowed to
iv- rin on the laUlu, to be called up at
Borne other time.
Tlie Turin* Bill was taken up at 10:45
The pending question was Vest's amend
ment to the china-ware paragraph reducing
the duty on decorated to 60 per cent ad
valorem, and on plain, undecorated ware to
40 per cent, instead of 55 and fXi.jis recom
mended by the Finance Committee, instead
of 00 and 55 in the House bill.
Tlie matter was discussed at length.
Finally Vest modified his amendment by
changing the rate of plain white china to
45 instead of 40 per cent. The am emlment
was rejected— ayes 19, noes 25.
The amendment of the Finance Commit
tee making rates 55 and 60 per cent was
agreed to without division.
The next question was on the committee
amendment to Paragraph 101, as to all other
chirm, etc., striking out the House para
graph which fixes the rate on decorated
ware at UO per cent and on undecorated at
55 per cent, and substituting another in
which a rate of 50 per cent is fixed. This
was agreed to.
The next question was on Paragraph
102%, glass and glassware. The comiiiitten
amendment struck out the paragraph in the
House bill fixing four rates on bottles, ac
cording to sizes, and providing a substitute
for a different elassiucation.with two rates,
oue of 1 cent per pound on bottles of nut
less than a pint and on demijohns and car

Democratic Attacks Upon the Speaker and His
Washington, Aug. 4.— The House went
into the Committee of the Whole on the
General Deficiency Appropriation Bill.
Henderson of lowa explained that the
Pacific Kailroad claims were not provided
for in the bill. While he believed the time
was near at hand when these claims would
have to bo settled the committee had been
practically unanimous in refusing to pro
vide for their payment when they were
still pendi ng In the courts ol the country.
Rogers of Arkansas attacked the Speaker
and hii rulings. The code of rules, he said,
under which the House was proceeding
gave the Speaker the power to stifle debate,
gag the House, force the passage of bills,
outrage and mistreat the minority and
bulldoze th« majority. He had de
graded the majority with th« full
knowledge on part of the Republican
members that if this scheme should break
down uuder the judgment of the liberty
loving people they would perish, like Sam
soD, under the ruins; but ii it succeeded,
that he alone should reap all the
glory. Their waut of patriotic cour
aee was exceeded only by theii
suicidal stupidity, and among them all
there had not been found a man with the
courage of Jackson, the patriotism of
Henry, and a love of liberty that inspired
our fathers, who could say, " This
is our country, these are our liberties,
these are our countrymen, and you
are our servants, aud we will not have one
trodden down uuder foot or outraged aud
wrouged." He concluded, "May I tell you,
Mr. Speaker, that they curse you and de
spise you, and hate you, aud when you are
assailed In private and in public tney are
Henderson of lowa defended the Speaker
agains ttho attack made upon him by llugers.
He referred to him as a mighty mau from
Maine and declared that he stood to-day as
to-morrow— the historic grand figure of this
age of legislative victory and reform.
Commenting on the legislation of tbe ses
sion, Henderson touched upon the Tariff
Bill, sayiDK that although some of the Re
publicans might have desired to amend It,
by reason of the organized opposition on
the other side the time had been so con
sumed that those amendments could not be
made. It seemed as though the minority
was br-nt on preventing all amendments.
This House had passed a silver bill whereby
silver was already inarching forward to
take its place beside gold. This House
had been the nrst one with the courage and
patriotism to pass an Anti-trust bill. It
had passed the Election Bill— an Election
bill and not a force bill, as its enemies
called it. The Home hud passed the Orig
inal I'ackßge Dill, which was marching
boldly forward to (ill the demands of the
best element of the people of the nation.
North and South. The Republicans of the
House had erected a pyramid 1 of legisla
lireckiiiridge of Arkansas criticised the
code of rules, and proceeded to contrast the
personal and political relations which ex
isted between Speaker Carlisle and the
members and that which existed between
them and Speaker heed. In the
last Congress the members of the
minority bad always been treated cour
teously. Now the members ol the
minority on rising for recognition, did not
know what treatment they would receive
at the hands of the. Speaker. He then pro
ceeded to make an earnest appeal against
the Force Bill, concluding as follows:
" Gentlemen of the North, why shall we
not come together? Why cannot we
lav aside this suspicion? You can
not take your 'rotten buronghs'
from the South. You cannot h«ld power
here by mercenaries put at the polls. You
cannot keep in political power by debauch
ing the ballot-box or jury-box. You cannot
make the country one by turning out mem
bers who areelected by the people and seat
ing those who are not elected by
your votes. What you can do is this: You
can aid the people of the South to build
up tlml country. You can help. us keep in
the line of progressive march, so that your
sons may come and live among us, throw in
their lot with ours, and intermarry in our
families; so that while there will still bo a
North and South, it will be a loving and
rich North and n prosperous and patriotic
South. That is what we Democrats, who
on this side of the chamber protest against
your rules, desire to have done by the
people behind you at home. I appeal to
Massachusetts. I appeal to the Western re
serve which was settled by men who came
from New England, I appeal to the living
soldiers who met us in battle array,
I appeal to the Ctiristians who kneel at the
same altar, I appeal to the brave men who
recognize sincerity and bravery behind
you, 1 apiieal to the living people of the
North— give us your coutideuce: we will
deserve it, we ao deserve it, and he who
■ays otherwise does not know us ami does
not speak tbe truth ol us. I speak to-day
in sight of God and this budy, and those
people who have known me nt home since
i was a little boy, when I say from my
heart there is no reason why the North and
South should be apart. The Nortli and
South sbnuld believe each other. [Loud
applause ou the Democratic side.]
Boutelle said he had 110 desire to attempt
any defeuse of the Speaker from the kind
of remarks which had been made from cer
tain sources to-day. He then commented
upon thn Clayton-Breckinriditecase, taking
as lii 3 text the report of the majority of the
Committee on Elections. Unou this text lie
built a strong denunciation ot the election
methods in the Southern States.
Breckimidge of Kentucky said his rela
tive, the gentleman from Arkansas, had
not sought to escape by a cowardly resigna
tion. A seat in Congress did not compare
with a good conscience. The gentleman
from Arkansas knew he had done nothing
to De ashamed of, and that the truth wlieu
truly found would nut adept him.
Tending action on the bill the committee
rose and the House ndjourued.

WORKING IN EARNEST
The Battle Among the Repub
licans Growing Hot.
Markham Still in the Lead, With Morrow,
Chipman, Shippee and Patenon Follow
ing in Order— Club Meetings.
Tbe friends of the various candidates for
the Domination for Governor are working
with renewed activity and from talking
they have settled down to bard, earnest
work among the delegates. Every day
brines in anew crowd from the outlying
districts and they are immediately seized
upon by the supporters of the various
aspirants, who lose no time in picturing to
their minds ti.o superior qualifications of
tlieir respective leaders.
On the Republican side, so far as can be
judged, Markliam still maintains his lead,
and while he may not be adding greatly to
his strength it is quite apparent that he has
lost no ground, and thai his friends have
Dot abated their enthusiasm in the least.
They claim, in fact, that his nomination is
assured, and that no combination can now
be effected that will affect his chances iv
Viewed from a fair standpoint, thrre Is
no doubt that he has a more enthusiastic
and practically solid support among the
delegates from his section than was ever
accorded to any candidate in the State. Of
the 188 votes apportioned to the Sixth Con
gressional District there are but sixteen
that are at all doubtful, and in that number
are included the eight delegates from Santa
Barbara, who, it is claimed, may give a
complimentary vote to Elwood Cuoper on
the first ballot, but will, it is said, go to
Murkhain sure on the second roll-call.
This is practically assured, although the
Markham supporters are claiming that Mr.
Cooper will not, in all probability, allow
his name to go before the convention. In
that event Santa Barbara would be in line
for Markham on the first ballot. Of the re
maining doubtful votes (eight in number)
seven are from Kreiii County, which tiark
hiim himself says he has been assured will
be cast for him at the outset. One vote
from Ventura is probably for Morrow, and
this was the result of an oversight in nam
ing the delegates.
A LATE DISCOVEKY MADE.
It was discovered, after the primary elec
tion had been held, that n personal friend
of Mr. Morrow had been placed on the
ticket, but no effort was made to undo the
matter. In other words, the followers of
Colonel Markham are claiming, and their
claim is a plausible one, that their leader la
confident of securing 187 of the 188 dele
gates from his Congressional district.
If to this is added the 23 votes of Santa
Clara and the 30 from San Francisco, which
the Monow men concede, with 11 from
Santa Cruz. 10 from Alameda, 3 from Yolo,
■J I. mv Mariu and 4 from Ban Male >, there
will be found L'7o votes lor the Los Angeles
man. It id reasonable to presume that in
ad'ii 1 ion to this be will secure a greater or
les3 number of scattering votes throughout
the central part of the State, aud may have
friends in Sacrameuto.
bo far ;i3 Congressman Morrow is con
cerned, lie will have, aside from his strength
in San Francisco and Alameda, the votes
of Stanislaus, Mendocino and Lake, so It
is said, with supporters scattered here and
there throughout the northern part of the
State. His friends are making it most ac
tive tight for him in that direction, and
have, it is conceded, gathered strength for
him among the delegates.
Cliipniun, however, who is undoubtedly
a strong and popular man among the north
ern delegates, has captured a great many
votes which might otherwise have gravi
tated lo Morrow, aud a large number of
which on a stampede might go to him in
preference to Markham. Ou this fact is
based, to a large extent, their claims for
strength; but in the scramble it might be
found that Marklmn would draw sufficient
to give him the nomination.
AN ELEMENT OF DANGER.
This is what the .Morrow men are en
deavoring to guard against, and recog
nize in it an element of danger. ■ But an
other factor which will enter largely into the
fight, and in which there is also danger for
Morrow, is the one that while . the south
has practically but one candidate for a place
on the State ticket aside from Mark ham,
and that one Judge Van Dyke, the north
has a number, among whom are Colgan of
Petaluma, Judge Garoutte of Woodland, J.
J. de Haven of Eureka and N. P. Chipman
of Red Bluff.
If any combinations are formed it is sup
posed that the strength of such men as
Colgan, Garoutte and De Haven will go to
the candidate for Governor who can assnre
'them of the greatest strength in return.
Looking at it from this standpoint. it is
not difficult to see that the claims of Mar':
bam would meet with serious considera
tion, as it is probable that he could come
nearer combining a large vote than any
other candidate in the field.
In the case of Yolo, however, it is said
that the vote will be divided between Mark
ham and Morrow, so as to antagonize
□ either, and in the other instances it is
possible that the same course might be pur
sued. Both would thus secure strength
which neither claims positively at pres
ent. Shippee, of course, will have
San Jonquil), while Paterson will con
trol the votes of Placer, with more or less
strength throughout the mining counties.
The latter, it is argued, would on a break
go to Morrow or Chipman, probably the
former. Where - San Joaquin would be
found after the first few ballots is hard to
determine: The situation, it will be seen,
looks decidedly favorable to Mark ham,
and the confidence of his fiieuds is not
without reason. ■

This movement against Bucklev, therefore, is nol

last night, and was rnrrounded by -bis
friends. , When asked about his candi
dacy, he replied:
"I am in the field for the nomination for '
Governor. lam not an aspirant for second'
place, and you will d.> me a favor if you will
say that I will not he a candidate for any
office less than Governor. I have no am
bition to serve as Lieutenant-Governor, and
do not thiuk I would be doing my friends
justice were 1 to accept the nomination.
" There is a general feeling that (ha
young men should be given recognition,
and I think they will be. 1 have two
friends, Colgan of -Petaluma and (> iroutte
of Vole, who are seeking nominations, ami
I would like to see both of them succeed.
They have both , been kind to me, and if 1
were to accept the nomination for Lieuten
ant-Governor, were it possible for me to '
secure it, it might interfere with them.
Why, then, should I aspire to an office that
I do not desire and possibly injure the
chances of mv friends, who do desira
preferment? That is my position exactly."-
