New Yonu, Aug. 27.-A Herald cable from London says: Through the Herald Mitch ell formally takes up Corbett's challenge to flight for $25,000 a side. He is ready to de posit money, furnished by his father-in law, "Pony" Moore, as soon as Corbett, by cable announces his acceptance. In addi tion kitchell authorizes your correspond ent to scv that he has an English friend willing to back him for $100,000 against Co bstt, buit it mut be a fight to the finish. Corbett cnn decide whether the tight is to be in America or in England. If in Amer ion Mitchell wants to name the exact loca tion, and if in England Corbett can name the location. "'Puny" Moore says he will put up as much money as Corbett lihkes. The fight can he with bare knuckles or with small- gloves, but Mitchell prefers knuckles. Mitchell savs he wants to fight for money and for an honest reputation-not for the cheers of the crowd at the ring aide. If Corbett agrees to his ideas he Is willing to flght in private, with nobody present but press representatives and say ive men on each side, to be named by himself and Cor bett. The main thing is that Mitchell wants to avoid the usual controversies. Mitchell means business and believes Corbutt does. The fight should come ofi in three months front the time of making the deposit. Mitchell's friends behove a more decisive fight can be had in private, thus getting rid of all talk about either fighter's crowd overawing the referee. On the other hand, if Corbhett wishes a crowd present Mitchell will not ohject. It was reported at Erie, Pa. last night that the condition of Ex-CJongreuuman boost was extremely oritical. NINETY MILES AN HOUR. Over That Disteane Made un the Read ing tallroed. PEIL.ADUnLPa, Aug. 81.-A mile in 80 2-5 seoonds, or at the rate of over ninety miles an hour, is the unparalleled feat that was accomplished the other day on the Bound Brook railroad, between Neshaming Falls and Langhorn, by engine 206, drawing two coaches and President MoLeod's private car "Reading," which is equal to two coaches in weight. Other miles were reeled of0 with a speed as astonishing as the crack mile, and at the end of the "fly" the world's record was broken. The fastest mile was scored in 89 4-5 sec onds; the fastest five miles three minutes 26 4-5 seconds; the fastest ten miles in seven minutes and twelve seconds, an average of forty-three seconds per mile. This race against time grew out of some good-natured chaffing that took place at Judge Greeves' dinner to the Farmers' club, Aug. 20. William M. Singerly was telling Mr. McClead, president of the Reading Railroad company, that for thirteen years he had been making it a diversion to time fast railroad trains, and that he had rarely traveled faster than fiftv seconds. Mr. iengerloy said that published records failed to show a mile better than 500 sec onds, and that the best he had timed was forty-eight seconds. A special train, consisting of locomotive and three heavy coaches, was made up, and left the Ninth and Green street station at 1:30 o'clock in the afternoon. When Nis eaminy Falls were left behind the engineer was signalled to let her go for ten miles. The party who were in the flying coaches kept their watches out in their hands and told every mile. President MoLeod feels greatly pleased that his read has so triumph antly beaten the best railroad record. CYCLISTS IN THE ARMY. Lieut. Bowen Mays a Bicycle Service Would be a Great Thing. WAsnHIoroT, Aug. 81.-Lieut. William H. Bowen, of the army, who inspected the Connecticut National guard during the re cent encampment, has sent the war depart ment a very complimentary report, giving the result of his observations. The nov elty of the encampment was a special bi cycle service by a corps of First regiment men, and this feature is specially com mended. "The men were armed," says Lient. Bowen, "with Colt's repeating car hines and revolvers. A man mounted on a bicycle can go in many places where it would be impossible to take a horse, and can beat the flag in sending messages in nearly every case. As a fighting force it may not be favored, but as messengers, patrols and advance gpnrd, in my opinion, it would be advisa ble. I would recommend to the serious consideration of the war department the advisability of experimenting with the bicycle. The principal duties of the mili tary cyclist are those of carrying dispatches. skirmishing and reconottering. As ap plied to the signal service it would, in my opinion, almost double its usefulness." PAID THE PENALTY. Tramps Murder a Man and His Wife and Are Shot to Pieces by Neighbors. CHraeoo, Aug. 31.-A dispatch from Mon roe, Mich., says that on Saturday after noon at a farm house near there John Williamson and wife were tortured and murdered by tramps who tried to get the money which they supposed the couple owned. Some of the farmers gave the warning and the neighbors organized and went to the rescue, but found the couple dead when they reached the house. The tramps were caught and both shot down by the infuriated citizens. DETROIT, Mich., Aug. 31.-Referring to the special dispatch from Monroe, Mich., to-day detniling the, killing of one Wilkin son and wife and the shooting down of the murderers by the incensed farmers, the sheriff of Monroe county sends word this evening that no such crime was heard of in that county until the dispatch came in, and that no such family resides in the county. Found Two More Victims. NEW Yoel, Aug. 31.-Mayor Grant made a personal visit to the scene of the Park place disaster to-day. He found while locking through the debris the bodies of two victims badly charred and mutilated. He then issued directions that all debris be cleared away at once. The first body was that of Abraham Der kaveritch, an employe of the bronze leaf factory, and the other that of a man named Blitz, who also worked in the same estab lishment. When the news hpread that more bodies had been found large crowds of people again congregated about the ruins to watch the searchers. Two more bodies are supposed to be underneath the side walk in the vaults, but could not be seen. This afternoon J. A. Layman made thor ough exploration of all the vaults under the sidewalk and could find no other bodies. Younn Hopklns is Politic. OMAhA, Neb., Aug. 31.-Timothy Hop kins came in on Union Pacific train to night. Speaking of the relation of his case to the control of the Central Pacific road, he said: "I can tell you nothing of a defi nite nature. 1 am not anticipating any thing. However, I will say since you have spoken of a possible battle between the two elements in the Southern Paciflc, that while such a war may be possible, there will be no trouble. Senator Stanford has not as sumed a belligerent attitude in the present affair, and Mr. Huntington alone has ex pressed his feelings and the position he will take in regard to Southern Pacific." The Australian Wine. SAN FaANorsco, Ang. 31.-Billy Maber, the Australian lightweight, better known as "The Shadow," defeated a local boxer, FrLnk Kelley, at the Occidental to-night. for a purse of $730. Kelley was game, but unscientific, and Shadow placed his left at will on Kelley's nose and chin, drawing blood freely. Kelley was dazed and bleed ing at the end of the ninth and the referee stopped the light, awarding it to Mabor. SPARKS FROM TIHE WIRES. Spurgeon has had another relapse.

Brennan, a RaIlroad Contractor and Some of the nemies oft President Eseta Were the Men Wanted. (Copyright. 1891, Western Associated Preess. SAN Jose Di GUATEMALA, Aug. 81.-An In cident which occurred at La Libertad, in the republic of Salvador, ten days ago bore some resemblance to the Burrundia affair, which happened on the steamer Acapulco, in San Jose de Guatemala during the late war between Salvador and Guatemala. One of the parties concerned in this case, how ever, was an American. The Pacific Mail Steamship company's steamer City of Pan ama stopped at Corinto, Nicaragua, Aug. 5, on its regular northbound trip, and among the passengers were Patrick Brennan, an American citizen residing in Salvador, and four native Salvadoreane, all former ofli cers of that government. These men had incurred the displeasure of President Ezeta, and were regarded by him as revolutionists. The steamer reached La Libortad August 8, and Ezeta's officers demanded the surrender of Bren nan and his companions. Captain White refused to comply and the com mandant of the port went to the steam er with a boat load of armed men and informed Captain White that the latter could consider hiniself under his orders, as he had come to take possession of the steamer and arrest the men. Captain White's indignation was aroused at once, and without waiting to discuss the matter at all. he told the commandant if he did not leave the steamer immediately he would throw aim overboard. The commandant evidently perceived that Capt. White was disposed to carry out his threat, for he withdrew from the steamer without further discussion. A short time before the steamer sailed Capt. White was informed that Presi dent Ezeta had been notified of the occur rence and had gone with a large armed force to Acajutla, the next port in Salvador, intending'to take off the refugees at all hazards. Capt. White accordingly deter mined not to go to Acajutla and on his ar rival at San Jose de Guatemala, laid the facts before United States Minister Pacheco. The men whom Ezeta desired to capture are now in Guatemala territory, and Ezeta has reauested Guatemala to surrender them. The exact details of the charges made against the men are not known here. Bren nan has resided in Salvador for some time and is a railroad contractor. He is said to be a man of means and some prominence in the country. During the late war in Guatemala his business operations were in terrupted, and it is said, at President iiEzeta's request, he accepted a cooitnission in the army of Salvador, enlisted his railroad employee in the service e and was instrumental in winning one or more battles in which he was engaged. At the close of the war I he retired from military service, and when revolution was threatened in Salvador some time later it is said Ezeta desired Brennan to enter his service and enlist his railroad employee. Brennan declined to do so, and it is nupposed in this way he incurred Ezeta's displeasure. The four Salvadoreans whom Ezeta wished to seize were Don Ayola, who claims to have been legally elected p!esident of Salvador, but who has been deprived of his office; Gen. Letona, commander-in-chief of the Salvadorean I army in 1885, but who has been in exile for the past five years; Gen.Bernandez, a wealthy exile, and Col. M. Rivas, of the Salvadorean army, nephew of (Gen. Rivas, who was executed at Ezeta's orders for the part he took in the late civil insurrection. NATIONAL FINANCES. How the Four Per Cents Are Being lx. eh anged for Those Bearing Less interest. WASHINOTaxN, Aug. 31.-The amount of four and one-half per cent bonds continued at two per cent to-day was $481,850, making a total to date of $23,221,650. This leaves about $27,000,000 4' per cents outstanding. It is impossible at present to make any definite estimates as to the amount of those that will be presented for redemption, es pecially as the time within which they may be continued at two per cent is to be ex tended beyond Sept. 2 for a period not yet fixed, Secretary Forter said this afternoon he thought between twenty and twenty-five millions 434 per cents will-be presented for redemption. This will be entirely satis factory to the department, the secretary said, as it would force that much money into circulation at a time when these is great need of it in moving crops. It is estimated at the treasury department that there has been an increase of over $6,000,000 in cash holdings since August 1, representing a decrease in the public debt of that amonuu, according to the old form of the debt statement. Saved from the Wreck. Naw YoIx, Aug. 31.-The steamship Arizona, which arrived this morning, brought eight members of the crew of the ship Sea Gull, which was wrecked in a terrific gale on the African coast. There were twenty-six all told in the Sea Gull's crew, and of these all were drowned save eight, picked up by the Arizona. When the Arizona found them they were floating on a small raft in the middle of the Atlantic. All were terribly emanciated from hunger and exposure, and some hardly able to sit nu when lifted to the decks. On board the big ship everything possible was done for their comfort, and when they arrived here they were much improved. One WVas Killed. Louiravi.Ls, Ky., Aug. 31. - Near Tell City, Indiana, this morning. a local mixed train on a branch of the Louisville, Evans ville and St. Louis was wrecked by the driving wheel of engine breaking. Miss B3arl arl Nahmer and an unknown child were killed and twelve others were injured, it is thought some fatally. The engine left the track and run on the ties for awhile, then took a header down a steep ombankmenlt. Sixteen were more or less-seriously injured by escaping steam. The wreck took tire and was entirely con sumed. The engineer and fireman esoaped serious injury by jumping. Killed the Postal Clerk, lADrvrvtLr,, Cal., Aug. 811.-A passenger train was derailed near here by the spread ing of the rails caused by the heat, The engine and four cars were ditched and badly wrecked. Postal Clerk Quinby was killed and several others seriously injured. Hildi Up a Train. DIOvan, Colo., Sept. 1,-Word was re ceived at one o'clock this morning from Canon City, saying the Denver & Rio Grande train was held up and robbed. No further particulars are obtainable to-night. The reports say the sheriffs of neilhboring eeanties are organizing posses to start at day light in paursmt of the robbers. RUSSIA GAINS A POINT. i thie Sultan Gives the Czar a Bight Grented 4 No One Else. COoisrTarnmoPLg, Ang. 81.-The sultan has yielded to all of Russia's demands tee peoting the Dardanelles, which will henes forth be opened to Russian vesa ole when clos ed to others, The sultan abjectly apologized for the recent detention of a toussian vessel, dismissed the officers responsible therefor, and promised indemnity. LotxooN, Aug. 81,-The St. James Gazette this evening holds that the submission of i the porte to Russian demands establishes a presedent which permits Russian war ships to use the passage of the Dardanelles as they please, while the warships of other nations must not enter those straits. This news, therefore, according to that paper, is by far the gravest published for some time. 8 The Standard sugebets that the sultan' aetion in regard to Russia and the Darda nelles may be due to pique and irritation at England's retfusal to reopen the Egytian negotiations. It says: "Since that re fusal it is reported the English ambassador has not been received at Yildizkiosk. It is for the powers to consider what course to adopt to enforce the observance of existing a treaties. Clearly the straits must be closed A to all nations or open to all nations. Eng- i land cannot alone champion the rights of the powers." BzRLm, Aug. 81.-The press here is in credulous regarding the report of the Turk- C ish sultan's submission to Russia's de- a mands respecting the recent detention of I the Russian volunteer fleet of steamers at the Dardanelles. The Vossische Zeitung says such action on the sultan's part would justify 'Turkey's removal from among the f Independent states of Europe. d Crispl HUas a ensatlon. t BoHxz, Aug. 81.-It is asserted that ex- d Premier Crispi will presently publish docu- is ments intended to demonstrate that France r desired to have.the pope to leave Rome in 1889. It is learned at the vatican that any ii such statement is quite without foundation. t The pope did, in .189, form the intention o of leavng Rome. He entered into negotia- o tions with the prince of Monaco and com plete arrangements were made, and apart- r ments for the pope were designated, when a letter of extreme impoitance was re- a ceived from the prince, making certain 9 conditions relative to the sojourn of the pope. One condition was that gambling r should be allowed to continue without in terruption. The conditions were such that the pope could not accept and the plan fell n through, but France had nothing whatever to do with the matter. Send Over Your Hogs. BaXLrN, Aug. 81.-It is reported in Ham burg that all restrictions on American pork will be removed to-morrow. United States Minister Wm. Walter Phelps when ques tioned upon the subject smilingly refused to confirm the report. It is known, how eher, that Phelps in his last dispatch to the German foreign office intimated plainly to the officials of that department that the patience of President Harrison and Sec retary Blaine would not last beyond Sep tember. The Crop Failures in Europe. NEW YORK, Aug. 81.--Co. Montgomery, of Oregon, who just returned fi om Germany, t said to-day: "The crop'"ailure in Europe M is geneal, and distress is sure to follow. I a was all over Germany and saw rain had e ruined the wheat and rye. People will 8 have to look to this country for relief. The h potato crop in continental Europe has been r more or less a failure, and people look with a longing eyes towards America. McGreevy Cares Not for Himself. MONTREAL, Aug. 31.-Hon. Thomas Mc Greevy, who fled to the United States to avoid telling what he knew of the public works "boodling," has been located at Portland, Me. He stated to a friend that he would be very glad to come back, so far as he is personally concerned, and give all. the facts, but others are interested who y have trusted him and he is determined not a to betray them. Natives Object to Explorations. PArns, Aug. 81.-The government has re ceived a dispatch announcing that Four neau's expedition to explore the valley of Sanghia Bayen, Central Soudan, and the French Congo, has been attacked by na tives. Sixteen were killed and thirty-one if including Fourneau himself were wounded, d All the'merchandise and a number of rifles belonging to the party were lost. Is Want Export Bounties. 3T. PETEaRSURG, Aug. 31.-A committee of the Nijni-Novgord fair has resolved to request the minister of finance to come to r a speedy solution of the question of insti tuting export bounties for common pro it ducts.

P CuroAao, Aug. 81.-A Catholio priest, Father Alyward, of Nativity parish, made a e raid to-night on a Chinese opium den. a Passing along Hlalstead street, not far from Sthe church, he saw three young girls enter an apartment kept by a Chinaman namued Wan Chung.

They confesed to being fre r quenters of the deon and iml licitted many of their companions.

It is supposed they were killed by Italian laborere employed in the vicinity. BALMACEDA AS fLE.D Official Confirmation of the Report That the Congressionals Now Rule in Chill. Balmaoeda Has Left the Country and Affairs are Now Quiet in Valparaiso. Stories of Frightful Mutilation by the the Vlctors-ltncetdlry Fires Destroy Much Property. WAsi~ns(ron, Aug. 81.-The official con firmation of Balracceda's fall reached the state and navy departments this morning. Acting Secretary Wharton received the fol lowing cablegram, dated Valparaiso, Aug. 30, 9:30 p. m.: "Balmaceda has turned over the government to Baquedano and fled. Canto goes tq Santiago to-night to assume control until the arrival of the junta from Iquique. Good order here. "McCREERa." Acting Secretary Seeley also received the following cablegram from Admiral Brown, dated Valparaiso, Aug. 10: "The president of Chili has surrendered the government to the Chilian Gen. Baque dano, and he has left Santiago. Valparaiso is well oranized. The foreign forces have re-embarked." The above is somewhat obscure, but it is interpreted at the departments to mean that the police force in Valparaiso is so well organized as to relieve the foreign admiral of further necessity for keeping their ma rines on shore duty. There has been no news from Chili re ceived by Minister Lnzcano this morning. The minister denies himself to newspaper reporters, but sent out word to the above effect by his servant. The Chilian congres sional envoys here are also without any news thus far relating to affairs in Chili. Although they do not expect any detailed news of the movemont of troops or the hap penings of more important events, they do expect' brief advices when matters of un usual importance occur. Senor Montt, the the principal envoy, refuses to discuss his future action towards attempting to receive recognition for the constitutional govern mcet from the United States. When spoken to about the matter to-day he was willing to tell what was going on in Chili but that he begged to be excused from telling what was going on in Washington. Senor Montt expects the Junts, which left Iquique for Santiago, to reach Valparaiso in about three days. The distance, he tays, is be tween 800 and 900 miles. Owed It to the German. NEW Yoax, Aug. 31.-The World prints a Valparaiso special saying the the insurgents owe their success in a great measure to the skill and experienoo of Col. Keoper, who was brought from Germany by the Chilian government as an instructor in modern warfare, but who quarreled with the Balmacedans and gave his services to the opposition. The l~shtmg was not only fierce but fiendish. The bodies of the Balmacedan generals, Balbosa and Alcer reca, who fell in the hottest part of the engagement, were frightfully mutilated. At sundown a riotous mob of laborers united with a rabble of deserters from the government and set fire and looted many buildings on the outer end of the city belonging to Balmaceda's partisans. Four teen fires raged all night, but are now under control. Two million dollars worth of property was destroyed. The city rang all last night with rifle reports, and this morning the bodies of 200 rioters and pil lagers littered the streets. The ambulance service has been simply disgraceful. Hundreds of wounded men were left on the battle field to die, who might have been saved if prompt measures of relief had been taken. The surgeons from the foreign war ships did the most valuable service in caring for the wounded, and had it not been for their hard effective work the sufferings of the wounded sol diers would have been much greater. Es pecial credit is due the medical staffs of the United States ships San Francisco and Baltimore. It has been ascertained that 800,000 pesos in silver was shipped on the British sloop of war Espiegle. The senior British naval officer is here making every effort to communicate with the captain of the Espiegle with a view to detaining the bullion if possible. It is supposed Balma ceda intended to use the money to make payments on account of the new cruisers, 'resident Errazuriz and President Kiel. The new Chilian warships Presidents Er razzuriz and Pinto have coaled and are now ready for sea. The command.ers are awaiting instructions from Chili before leaving. Admniral Brown this afternoon had a long conference with the junta leaders and the irritation against the Americans has been subdued. The junta is exceedingly anxious to secure recognition from the United States, and is now hopeful that it will be accorded to them°. Numbers of officials have been arrested, but have been nas sured a fair trial before the proper author ities, when quiet is restored. Montt and General Canto say there will be no meaolts ures taken towards the formation of a new government until all the mrcmbers of the junta arriva here from Iquique. It is hard ly probable an election will be held for some time and in the meantime thi junta will be in Contriol. The Herald this morning has the follow ing cable advices from Chili: General Basquednno has been reoognized as presi ad interim of the republic by members of the junta, The government troot s at Con cercion, Taleahusna and other places have notitied the congressionalist authorities that they have finished fighting and are ready" to obey orders from the junta, and only Coquimbo promises to make trouble. All that remains to be done now is to put down the sporadic cases of 'disor der, bring to trial such of the Balmacedist officials as have been guilty of outrageous acts of tyranny, and prepare for the elections which will again give tile republic an unnaesti oned foonstitutional government. I have just had on interview with ex-Minister (lodoy. Baloaceda's closest adviser, and also with Bahnmaceda's brother. They say throughout the entbe period since the out break of the revolution Ialmaceda lihas tle ponded upon the representations of the army ofUclals that the foreo was loyal and devoted to his cause. Believing tis, llalmaceda concluded to continue resistance. Had he thought otherwise he would have resigned rather than been the cause of unnecessary bloodshed.

The Missouri Farmers' Alliance Has a Socialist Element In the Ranks. KANiSA Cnry, Mo., Aug. 31.-The Star says it has transpired that during the re cent state meeting of the Farmers' allit ance at Warrensburg, there was all organi zation within the alliance, which believed in force to attain its objects. It was the I knowledge of thbs force element that de feated the sub-treasury resolution, which was championed by the force men princi pally. Other delegates who favored it voted against it, because they desired to defeat the force party. The latter had forty eight delegates in the convention, and one of them told it reporter: "If the minority will not do what the majority wills, it is high time for the majority to hang the minority. If ballots won'tdo the business, bullets will, and tihere are a lot of us to go that far." Ex-President Hall, who asserts that his life has been declared forfeited in the meetings of these people, is keenly alive to the situation. Before the meeting at Myrtle Springs he sent out a letter, dited August 14, to every delegate he could trust, telling him the facts and ex horting him to be at the convention ready to crush out the influence of these social-. aiste, as he calls them, in the alliance. This secret order calls itself "Anti-monopolists." Very few, if any, farmers belong to it. The Star says its strength lies mainly in the cities, and the farmers are its catspaws to rake its political chestnuts from the fire. KILLED IN THE FLATHEAD. Uhas.
