NO. 9 NO NEWS OF THE ITATA. -THIS ESMKRAI.DA AND CHARLES TON ARE AT ACAPULCO. So Probability of a Hostile Mooting Tho Chilian Rebels Will Avoid a Flj-ht , With tho United States, Uccauho It Would Ho Their Heath-blow. After a week's waiting somo tangible news was yesterday received at tho Navy Depart ment from tbo Charleston. First came a de spatch from Acapulco stating that the Chilian insurgent cruiser Esmeralda had put out of Acapulco harbor on Friday and returned to tho port yestorday. Later on, through tho State Department, a despatch camo saying tho Charleston had arrived nt Acapulco and that the Esmeralda was still in port, but giving no news of tho Itata. What the next step is to be no ono at tho Department knows or feels free to tell. The Charleston is to tako on coal, as her supply has probably nearly runout tluring tho weok's chase. Whether tho Esme ralda la to have tho privilege of taking coal aboard cannot bo learned ,hcre, as it is a mat ter entirely within tho control of tho Mexican government, but the presumption at the De partment is against it, ns tho neutrality laws would ho strained by tho Mexican govern ment if it allowed anything beyond water and food supplies to bo furnished a belligerent. Tho theory at the Navy Department Is that the Charleston, whoso commander (Capt. Remoy) has orders admitting largo discretion ary movements, will now Ho at or near Acapulco for a time, trusting that the Itata. which is a slow seven-knot ship, has not yet passed down tho coast and will try to coal in that neighborhood. If ste is sighted, the Charleston will doubtless try to seize her. She cannot do this in Mexican waters, so that it would bo necessary to head her off outside , the three-mile lino or,,if unsuccessful in that, to follow her to sea whon she goes out. "What the Esmeralda will do meantime is proble matical. Tho general Impression is that the officers of the vessel will rely more upon .strategy than force to obtain the supplies carried by the Itata, and somo officers believe that sho is trying to lure the Charleston away from tho ltata's real course. Recourse to force to.provent tho Charleston from capturing thoItata, however, would, it is said, be the death-blow to the insurgent causo in Chili, as tho entire naval force of the United States Jn the Pacific would, if necessary, be called rintO,play to destroy the insurgent navy. A cablegram received at tho Department from Admiral McCanu yesterday announced that tho Baltimore and San Francisco were both, at Iquique, Chili, yesterday, so it ap pears that tho Baltimore has came north and the Sau Francisco has been stayed in her southern course just at the point where the Chilian navy is now nearly altogether assem bled.. This point is almost in the extreme north of Chili, and is where tho Itata would naturally find her destination if she eluded the Charleston. Iquique, Chili, via Galveston- Tex., May 1C Tho United States war-ship Baltimore, from Valparaiso, arrived here this morning. The Baltimore and tho San Francisco will re main on this coast under command of Admiral Brown. Admiral McCann, who is on board the Baltimore, will bo transferred to the United States steamer Fensacola, which is expected heroin a few days, and will then leave for the Atlantic. OllDEHED OUT OF TORT. City ov Mexico, via Galveston, May 16. The government denies the truth of tho pub lished rumors that tho Chilian steamer Es meralda succeeded in buying even a limited amount of coal at Acapulco, but says, on the contrary, sho was ordered out of tho'port and is now lying off tho coast, in neutral waters, waiting, It is thought, for tho steamer Itata. The Esmeralda's steam launch was patrolling all last night. Tho general opinion at Acapulco is that the Itata has passed that place and gone south, and that the Es meralda is waiting for tho United States steamer Charleston. Tho officers of the Es meralda have been using tho telegraph wires at Acapulco freely. At 5 o'clock this afternoon an unusual com motion was observed ontho Esmeralda by per sons who wero watching tho insurgent vessel through glasses at Acapulco, but a thorough search of tho water failed to show any sign of an approaching vessel. Where Brigandage Flourishes. Milwaukee, May 10. The murder of Aul fuss, tho old soldier, whoso body was found Sunday night in a creek near tho Soldiers' Home, has resulted in tho discovery that a regular system of brigandage has flourished in tho neighborhood of tho grounds. Hun dreds of men have thus been waylaid and robbed within the last year. Governor Hatha way, of tho Home, has been enlisted In tho crusado with tho local authorities, and they propose to rid thp district of the robbers. Whipping-Post, and Pillory. Wilminoton, Del., May 10. -Four ' hun dred persons saw ten prisoners lashed and four of them pilloried In New Castle jail yard to-day. The offenses were burglary and petty larceny. Sheriff Simmons applied tho lash especially hard. Tho victims were given from four to twenty lashes. Ono of them will re ceive three la6b.es on June 18 and three more on July 10. Four of the men stood one hour in the pillory. There was but one white man. H II General Grant's Old Jjo Cabin. St. Louis, May 16. General Grant's old log cabin, which was expected would go to tho World's Fair, will not be transferred to that Exhibition, Mr. E. A. Joy, of Old Orchard, Mo., has purchased tho relic for the Bum of $5,000, and it is said;wlll not permit it to leave this city. REIGN OF TERROR MUST STOP. Plain Warning Given to the Provenznnos ntNow Orleans. New Orlisanb, May 10. Yestorday Henry Fotcrs, a stovedoro, went to tho City Hall and complained to Mayor Shakespeare that tho Frovonzanos were interfering with him on tho loveo. and intimidating tho laborers.

Hundreds of Families Homeless Una bated fury of tho Flames. Muskegon, Mien., May 16. This city suf ferred a second visitation from tho flames this afternoon. Firo started at 6:80 o'clock in the Langakell Hotel barns, just off Pine street, from some un known cause, and, aided by a strong wind, swept with lightning like rapidity,, ten block up Pino street, one of tho chief busi ness streets of the city. Then by a sudden shift in the wind, the flames were driven toward Terrace avenue, one of the finest residence streets in tho city, where they swept unchecked and aro now burning with unabated fury near Evergreen cemetery In tho southern edge of the .city. Twenty-two blocks aro devastated as if swept by a hurri cane of firo. The $100,000 court house was gutted, but its public documents were saved. Tho prisoners in tho county jail, which occupied the basement of the court house, were liberated. A little child who was sleeping in tho Langakell Hotel, barns, where the firo started, is missing. Tho loss cannot be accurately stated, but will probably reach half a million. Hundreds of families aro thrust upon their friends for accommodation. Frequent reports from exploding boilers are heard. Dynamito is used iu some Instances to clear buildings, OURlOUSLiY INVOLVED. Our Newly-Negotiated Treaty With Spain Troubles Other Nations. Copyright by Associated Press. Bkhlin, May 16. Tho negotiations for a German-Austrian commercial treaty with Spain have become curiously Involved with the reciprocity convention proposed by Gen. John W. Foster, the special representative of tho United States. The German Embassy at Madrid, which ought to bo rightly informed, sent a despatch to the effect that the Pour parlers opened with tho Duke of Tetrian, the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, a month ago, havo now ceased. Tho Duke of Tetrian reeoived the overtures for a treaty with Germany favorably, and told tho German Ambassador that the cabinet meant to renew tho treaties gen erally on the principle of reciprocity, so far as was compatible with a protection policy, and that as soon as Franco shall promulgate her now tariff tho Government will place before the cortos a general tariff on wlilcli will be based the conventions with all powers, Since this communication was made, tho concession to the United States has become known. This rendors difficult any treaty with tho European powers. Spain has agroed to give American imports into Cuba and Porto Rico differential rate of 25 per cent, against similar imports from all other countries, whether or not they conclude treaties with Spain. Such a privilege, constituting a practical customs union between tho United States and the Spanish Antilles, blocks further negotiations which the German ambas sador has undertaken simultaneously with tho Austrian, Italian and Belgian minis ter. Spain has been invited to send a dele gate to tho customs conference at Vienna, where a solution of the difficulty might be discussed. Tho German traffic with tho An tilles is of no great Importanco but the forma tion of a treaty recognizing exclusive Ameri can prlvlllges is hardly possible. The Madrid government find that every country of Europe takes a similar view of the matter. The Spanish commission appointed to formulate a tariff has not concluded its report, and it will probably bo autumn before an attempt to renew decislvo negotiations Is made, Mrs. Duncan liilcoly to Recover. London, May 16. Tho latest news received here from Chester in regard to the attompted murder of Mrs. R. C. Duncan, wife of Richard O. Duncan, of Washington, D, C, is that in spite of the frequent assertions to tho contrary made by physicians in attendance upon that lady, sho is now reported to be out of dangor, ONE HORSE KILLED. A DAY OP SPORT INTKKSFEUSED WITH ACCIDENTS AT IVY CITY, Successful Hut Eventful Closo of tho Duinblano Hunt Club's Moot Eight Good Uncos aad Three Riders Thrown. A thorough sportsman is never affected by the weather or discouraged by tho outlook, and in this respect Washington's fashionable element yesterday proved Its ardor for excit ing sport by its large attendance at tho sec ond day's racing of tho DumblaneHunt Club. Tho clouds scurrying across tho sky in tho moraine, now and thon sendlne down a short shower, made many fear that tho races would bo postponed, but before the first race w.as run tho sky was almost clear. Society was prosent in about tho samo num bers as on Thursday and well filled tho grand stand. Drawn up in line in tho field againBt tho rail ware many handsome equipages, tally-ho's, drayB, dog-carts, and victorias with well-groomed horses gayly decorated with ribbons and rosettes. Tho track was in a very bad condition and fast time was out of tho auestion, but the races were none tho leBS ex citing. Just beforo tho fourth race a heavy shower came up, which left tho track very much like a pond. To this was due the loss of ono horse and Mr. Barnard's fall was at tributable tq.tho treacherous footing. Tho day was marked by mishaps. In tho first race Mr. Page's Bull got tho bit under his tongue, and as he was pulled to keep back his breathing was affected, and the hbrse burst a blood-vessel. Some of the other riders noticed the horse's condition and in formed Mr. Page, who turned, him into the field to prevent his falling on the track. Ho did it none too soon, as the horse fell, throw ing him heavily. Mr. Pago escaped with nothing worse than a slight cut and a shaking up. Bob Swim, owned by Mr. McDermott and ridden by Bob Wallach, started out at a telling pace In tho Galloway Cup race, but after passing tho one-quarter pole was seen to bo limping badly. He kept on, however, being passed by the other horses, until he reached the head of tho stretch, where ho fell. It was found the horse had broken his leg, and Officer Slack shot bim. In the last race Countess fell at the second jump, throwing Mr. Barnard beneath her feet. Neither horse nor rider was-badly injured, however. The management was excellent, and the fact that eight races were run after 3 o'clock, and the crowd at home by 7. P. M., shows that tedious waits were not there. In fact, ono race was run so quickly after tho close of the previous ono that tho bookmakers did not have a chance to mako pools. The Dumblane Cup proved the race of the meet. A prettier steeplechase was never run, and tho excitement over it reached tbo extent of umbrellas and hats thrown in the air and a general state of confusion. Mr. Knut, on Natchez, started out in a, way that proved his intention of redeeming his defeat of Thurs day, and until tho flat was reached no ono would have said ho would not win. Mr. Ryder, on Mogul, rodo with skill and judg ment In such a way that he caught The Moor, finally reached Natchez at tho head of tho stretch, and won by five lengths amid loud huzzas. Mr. Ryder's excellent work has placed him among tho loading amateur riders of the country. It was generally believed that Mr. Maddox would win some of the races with Neptune or Prospect, but, though he rode with his usual skill, his horses wore sadly deficient in work and tired quickly. The judges were Assistant Secretary of State Wharton, Hon. Allen Johnston, of the British Legation; Maj. Ferguson, and Mr. Richard Smith. Dr. Harris acted as timer, while Mr. Edmund Blount officiated as starter. The first raco was tho Hunters' Cup for qualified hunters, to bo owned and ridden by members of tho Dumblane Club.dlstanco ono and one-half miles on tho flat. Tho Bull, ridden by Mr. Harvey Page, was a prime favorite; selling In the auction pools for $10, against $13 for tho field which consisted of Mr. A. Gregor on Countess, Mr. George Eustls on St. Swlthin, Mr. R. Neville on Transit, Mr. Guy F. Whiting on Dandy, and Mr. J. Ford Thompson, Jr., on Tho Bear. Tho riders were dressed in red. hunting coats and mado a pretty appearance. St. Swlthin Sot off In the lead followed by The ear, Countess, and Transit. Going around tho turn Countess ran into first, place and The Bull moved up, but hurst a blood vessel and fell. Mr. Gregor,on Countess, let his horse havo his head and sho quickly ran away from tho others, which strung out in a long procession tbo horses running in this order: Countess, St. Swlthin, Dandy, Bear, and Transit. In this manner they passed tho finish. Time, 2.5g, Mutuals paid $7.50 and $3.00 on Countess, and $5,85 on St. Swlthin for the place. An extra jnatch race for ponies brought out Mr, George Eustis's Kangaroo, Mr. William Eustls's Sand Boy, and Mr. J. Van Ness Phillips's Lilian. The distance was half a mile on the fiat. Lilian was tho favorite, but could get no better than last place. Mr. Blount sent them off to a good start and Kangaroo quickly showed in front. Ho ran fa6t and won by a length from Sand Boy, who only beat Lilian by a nose. Time, 0:59 2-5. Mutuals paid $4.55. Carteret and Neptune 6old for $10 each in the Hack handicap, the field only bringing $4. The race was three-quarters of a mile on the fiat and proved to be a contest between Car teret and Neptune, in which the former m on as ho chose. Neptune started well, but lacked training, and when Mr. Hayes, on Carteret, gave his horse his head he came away and won Jn a gallop. Mr. Bob Wallach, on Moon-light-on-thoGreen, secured third place, fol lowed by J. Ford Thompson, Jr., oa Will 'o tho Wisp, and Mr. Barnard, on Merry War. Time, 1:26. Mutuals paid $3.60, Mimosa proved a surprise iu the raco for the Galloway Cup, aud with Mr, George Eustls captured the prize by flvo lengths, Carteret was sent out again, but tho track was too heavy for him to win, He ran a good race, however, and finished second, In the auction pools Bob Lovlna and Mimosa brought $5 King Tom $3 and tho fiold $10.Tho distance was a mile. Bob Lovina, ridden by Bob "Wallach, set a smart pace, but put his foot In a holo and broke his leg. Mimosa then took tho lead and was not headed. Carteret was second, King Tom, with Mr. Barnard up, third, and Prospect, ridden by Mr. Maddux, fourth. Mr. Lo Grau, on Susette, also run. Timo, 1:48. Mutuals paid $11.25 and $4.40 anfl $2.75 for place. Mr. Snyder, on Tho Rat, had everything his own way in tho ponies' raco for tho Univer sity Cup. Mr. Wallach, on Frank, was second, ten lengths ahead of Mr. Earle, on Chappie. Timo, 0:55 2-5. Mutuals paid $2.95. Tho sixth raco was a match steeplechase over tho short course between Mr. Marshall's Punch and Mr. J. Ford Thompson Jr.'s Rear, both horses ridden by tho owners. Tho raco might have been a closo ono, but Punch boltod tho first jump, thus giving tho Bear a lead which could not bo cut down. Punch was tho favorite. Time, 3:15. Mutuals paid $5.70. Tho milo raco for farmers' horses was an amusing procession, led by Mr. Robert Cur ran, on Joseph Moore's Roonoy. When tho raco was finished Mr. J. W. Enders was at tho head of tho stretch, on Mr. Harrington's Bar1 ney, while somewhero along the courso was Mr. Georgo Howard, on Mr. J. J. Murphy's Dixoy. Timo, 2:13 2-5. No pools sold. The last event was tho absorbing ono of tho day. Tho horses and their riders were: Natchez, Mr. Knut; Apollo, Jr., Mr. Ernest Hayes; Countess, Mr. Bernard; Tho Moor, Mr. A. Gregor, and Mogul, Mr. Ryder. Tho distance was about three miles over tho full steeplechase course. Mogul sold as favorite for $10; Apollo, Jr., and Tho Moor, $5; tho field bringing $8. Natchez stated off at a kill ing pace, followed by Tho Moor, Mogul, and Apollo, Jr. Countess fell at tho second jump. In this order all tho jumps were taken. Mogul was far behind at tho last jump, but af ter ho had passed it ho rapidly overtook Natchez, and a whipping fight occurred be tween tho two horses down tho stretch. Mo gul won by five lengths. No time. Mutuals paid $3.60 and $2.85. SECRETARY BliAINE'S IIjIiNESS. What His Wife Says About It-He Will Return Hero This Week. New Youk, May 16. Mrs. Blaine, when seen this afternoon, said that she was unable to uuderstand why tho good people of Wash ington were so much exercised over the con dition of Mr. Blaine. While the Secretary is in Washington, Mrs. Blaine says, he is often at tacked by the gout, and he has frequently been confined to his room for several days at a time. The plans, Mrs. Blaine addedj for her husband's departure for Washington havo been abandoned day after day. Tho weather is greatly against tho subsiding of tho gout, and sho concluded by saying that'in all prob ability it would be a week before Mr. Blaine could leave for the Capital. TIIE LATEST BULLETIN. At 9 o'clock to-night Dr. Dennis issued the following bulletin relative to tho condition of Secretary of State James G. Blaine: Mr. Blaino has passed a most comfortable day, spending most of tho timo on a lounge. His condition is so much Improved that 1 do not intend to visit him to-morrow.

Lincoln, of this city, who is Mr. Blaine's physician, in speaking about the Sec retary's present condition, said ho knew noth ing about it, except what ho had seen in tho newspapers, and judging from what he saw there,especially tho statements attributed to the members of the family, he did not think that Mr. Blaino was seriously ill at all. Mr. Blaine, the doctor said, had been working very hard for months, and now that he was away from his desk he supposed his family would llko to keep him away from work for a time and not hurry oack to Washlpgton. Dr. Lincoln said that judging from what bo had read ho thought tho present attack of sickness was similar to those which tho Secretary had experienced before. . . . ROOSEVELT VS. CIjARKSON. Vigorous Denial of Charges Against the Civil Service Commission. Indianopolis, May 16. An elaborate banquet was given this evening at tho Propylaea, by a number of gentlemen In terested In Civil Service reform to tho Hon. Theodore Roosevelt, about ninety covers were laid. Tho principal address of the evening was made by Mr. Roosevelt, who, after speak ing at some length of the workings of tho Civil Service, launched out in answer to the recent article of James S. Clarkson in tho North American Review In a way that tended to fully awaken those of the ban queters who might have been inclined to drowsiness. Ho characterized Mr. Clarkson's articlo as'a loose diatribe, equally compounded of rambling declamation and misstatements, Ho vIeoru6ly denied the truth of Clarkson's assertion that the Civil Service Commission was moro opposed to tho Republican party under Harrison than It was under Cleveland. Mr. Roosevelt accused Mr, Clarkson of running tho Post Ofilco Department as a "spoils machine, treating fourth-class offices as simply tho property of Congressmen good or bad inwhose district they were situated," In conclusion, Mr. Robsevelt said President Harrison and tho Civil Service Commission under him were doing everything in their power to enforce the Civil Service laws and extend their scope. Ex-Congressman in a Fisticuff. Richmond, Va., May 16. Lawyer William n. Sauds aud ex-Congressmau Edmund Wad dill got into a heated controversy over an election case, in tho Henrico County Court to-day, which culminated in Waddlll receiv ing a blow in tho face from the fist of Sands.

CENSUS CLERKS RELIEVED SECRETARY NOBIE SHUTS DOWN ON THE SWEATING SYSTEM. A Visit to tho Intoroconn Building Which Seems to Havo Convinced' Him the Stories of Overwork. Wore"' True. Tho complaints about tho manner In which' tho clerks in the Census Office ard overworkedr given to tho public by Tub Sunday-Herald, have at last attracted tho attention of Secre tary Noble. Tho stories of women forced to make a certain dally average or run tho risk of losing their positions seem to have aroused Gen. Noble's sympathies and a few days ago ho is said to havo decided to make an investi gation on his own hook. Ho dropped into tho Interoccan Building on Ninth street and almost tho first person be struck was a chipper chief of division who knew him. Tho divi sion chief approached and said, "How do you do, Mr. Secretary? Won't you walk in and see my division, where the punches average 1,000 and better." "What do you mean?" asked tho Secretary. "Why," replied the chief of division, "my clerks all mako over ono thousanddn'average, and are the pick of tho office." "Well, no wonder tho newspapers aro talk ing about this office, if that is tho case. It's an outraee," continued Secretary Noble, "and . must.be stopped," and turning from, the dis- comiorteu cmei Mr. jnodio left the building. Ho mu6t havo gone directly to his own office, for in less than an hour a general order was issued prohibiting the "averaging up" sys tem, and giving his clerks to understand that no further hardships would be imposedjupon them. , GEN. RAUM HUMIIiIATED; . SayB His Son Is Innocent, and tho- Viotlm of Departmental Enmities,, Chicago, May 16. Concerning tho resigna tion of his son and the published statement thathohimsolf would tako llko action, Gen. Green B. Ruum, Commissioner of Pensions, said to-day: "If becauso of this unfbrtunattt affair about my son the President is at all displeased with me, 1 shall resign. Whether he is displeased I cannot say, for I Tiave re ceived no intimation from him. I am-very sorry for my son and am deeply humiliated by it, but ho is innocent of wrong doing. The $72 was satisfactorily accounted for, and the colored man, who has an excellent reputation, denies having received any money from this ::man Smith. And it is not shown that my son received any money," "Then why did he resign ?" "In tho Department aro about twenty thou sand employes. Many enmities exist. Com plaints, unjust, have been mado about him to the Secretary, and to prevent further annoy ance to that official my son resigned. He cquld not afford to remain while any suspicion rested upon him. As to my thoughts upon my own future, I do not care to say. I 6hall leave for Washington this afternoon'. Whab I do will depend upon what I learn there. "I did notseek the office" he said. "It came to. me unsolicited. During my incumbency its affairs have been conducted with honesty and despatch. I have nothing to. conceal. Upon my record there does not rest a blot. I havo been in public life a long time and no man can point to a dishonest or even ques tionable act of mine." THAT COTTAGE SOLD. Tho President Disposer of His- Property- at Cape May l'olnt.. Special to The Sunday Herald. Cai'e May, May 16. President H? arrison is no longor a property-owner at Cape May Point. Ho baB recently disposed of the famous cottage at that place, about which the newspapers raised such a hullabaloo a year or so ago because It was said tho property bad been presented to Mrs. Harrison by a number of wealthy Philadelphia gentlemen. After ward President Harrison paid $10,000 for the cottage. It is now understood that he has sold it for the samo price, but who tho pur chaser is has not been made public. From this it is taken for granted that tho Presi dent's family will not be among the summer residents of Cape May Point this year. Kentucky Democratic Convention- Louisville, Ky., May 10.
