"I was down at Nogales the other
day," said a prominent gentleman of
that city "and heard Barnes and
Honey talk, and it was a picnic.
Heney spoke first and Barnes next
The latter did not answer Heney at all
but simply scored the Camerons. The
understanding was that Heney would
talk first and Barnes next, each to talk
an hour and Frank to close in a 15
minute speech. Heney spoke and lit
erally ripped a hole in Barnes charac
ter and gave undisputed evidence of
his crookedness. Barnes spoke from
a dry fcoods uox further down the
street and when he bad finished Heney
was behind the box and jumped on
it and began to talk. This was a sig
nal for a bombardment and Chinese
bombs were fired off around tho im
provised rostrum and drowned the
speakers voice. When the bombs
gave out Mr. Heney tried to talk,
Barnes' crowd yelled like madmen
and seeing there was no use to at
temt to be heard, tho speaker came
down, after first telling the crowd at
the top of his voice that only cowards
refused to hear tho truth."
Col Herring I believe aR the

treat us as the girl does who marries
the persistant lover. I think they
will let us come in to get rid of us.

Tliroutfli the Weary Hour
Of many a night made doubly long by
its protracted agony the rheumatic suf
fcrer tosses to and fro on his sleepless
couch, vainly praying for that rest
which only comes by fits and Btr,ts.
His malady is one which ordinary
medicines fail to relievo, but there is
ample e"idenco to prove that the
efficient blood depurcnt Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters affords the rheumatic
a reliable means of relief. Check tho
malady in its incipient stages, when
the first premonitory twinges conio on
with this agreeable medicine and avoid
years of torture. Whatever be the
rationalo of the active influence of the
Bitters upon this malady, certain it is
that no ovidenco relating to its effect
is more direct and positive than that
which relates to its action in cases of
rheumatism. Like all sterling reme
dies, however, it deserves a protracted
systematic trial, and should not be
abandoned becauso not at once rem
edial. It is equally efficacious in dys
pepsia indigestion and kindred disease

Binghamton, N Y Secretary of
War, B F Tracy is in the city on
private business. In an interview
with a Republican reporter last night
he stated several important facts con
cerning the Itata which have hereto
fore been matters of speculation. The
secretary states indefinately that the
Charleston has orders to capture the
Itata wherever she may be found up
on the high seas. This includes all
waters outside the three mile limits or
ports of foreign countries. He did
not anticipate a fight but in case of re
sistance the United States ship would
carry out her orders at all hazards.
The United States had maintained a
strictly neutral position in refusing to
supply arms to insurgents and as tho
Itata had violated every rule of inter
national law in breaking away from
the custody of our government after,
seizure she would have to take the
San Francisco The Call has an in
terview with A.K. Coney, Mexican
consul general at this port, in regard
to tho probablo action of the Mexican
government if the Itata -enters the
port of Acapulco. He says Acapulco
is a neutral port ind he is confident
the Charleston will not be permittted
to seize the Itata there, but if the
Itata enters there with contraband
goods on board, it is probable that
Mexican officers w.ll turn the guns
of the fort on her and seize her them
selves. The fort is not a very power
ful one but is strong enough to cap
tuie the Itata.
Washington Tho Russian legation
here received a cablegram from St.
Petersburg which contained informa
tion to the eflect that no bad results
are apprehended from tho effect of
the sabre cut received by the Czare
City or Mexico The latest advices
from the war ridden country that
the insurgents have laid a final de
mand before Balmaceda for his sur
render and agreement to their plans,
and that in event of his failure to
agree, the port of Valpaiaiso will be
blockaded and if necessary the town
bombarded. The total fighting force
of tho Insurgents are 175,000 men
and that of the regular government
less than 125,000, Balmaceda is rest
ing his hopes on the ironclads. Pres
ident Pinto and President Ewazuri,
two huge men of war which were or
dered by the Chilian .overument of
French ship builders. Both vessels
are completed and Balmaccdo has
ordered their sailing but the French
government has refused to allow them
to leavo port, which clearly shows
which side France faors in the South

'rom Valparaiso state that several of
:h'e directors of the revolution whose
names have recently appeared affixed
to so-called decrees and Manifestos of
the insurgents given out from Paris
are known to have gono down with
Blanco Encalida nearly a month ago.

City or Mexico. Rumors of a se
rious riot, in the ftate of Hidalgo,
have dwindled down to a small local
disturbance principally of a personal
nature. There has been no uprising
against the government.
Paris, Tho Sieclo says in spite of
the rupture between Balmaceda and
the Congressional party of the Chilian
government that France, the United
States and Brazil intend to fulfil the
tusk of arbitrating the matters in
dispute between the now contending
factions. The Siele adds that the task
will be undertaken with ,every pros
pect of success.
San Diego. Passengers on the
steamer Crescent City, which arrived
from Cedros Island last night, report
that when about ten miles below En
senada, on Monday night, the cruiser
Charleston was sighted, far out at sea.
As soon as the officers of the war ship
caught sight of the Crescent City
they changed their course and made
directly for her. As soon as the cruis
er approached the captain of the
Crescent quickly raised the American
flag and saluted. The Charleston
immediately turned at right angles
and soon steamed out of sight in the
southwest. The Crescent officers re
port seeing 'nothing of the Itata.

opments in the Robert and Minnie
case. The sailors are still in jail, tho
Captain aud Mr. Burt still at the Hoi

any of the cases. There is evidently
a hitch somewhero in the bail not be
ing forthcoming, but the gentlemen
refuse to say anything any more than
they arc waiting for bail from Frisco
and are expecting it momentarily.
Their liberties of action are not re
stricted, and they conduct themselves
much with the same freedom as if they
were on bail, except tne marshal is
present all the time, the only respon
sibility Marshal Gard being under is
to have them before the United States
commissioner on the day fixed for the
City of Mexico The government
is vigilent in its endeavor to sight the
Charleston and the Itata, but there
seems to be a secrecy maintained and
nothing can be found ouV regarding

engagement has taken place between
the Itata and Charleston is hooted at

ed that the Charleston has no orders
that will allow her to fight and no
