With thi m was ? short, repulsive 1 king Chinaman, dressed In a blue blouse and ornamented slippers, snd wearing his "pigtail" in" approved On.-nlal St] le. The tw.i detectives broupht the Chinaman quickly np I ? Poll Justice Ryan's desk and en p?ped the Judge in S mysterious conversation. The Chinaman, who said his name was Yu J>han. war> nervous, glancing furtively around the court, and seemlnEly afraid that something t-.-rribie was ab cit to happen. After n few 'noir, nts Yu Lhan was led away in the custody ot the officers, his face blanched With terror. When questions 1 as to what the Chinaman was charged with, ths detectives said be was men ly held as a suspicious character. "Aiiy corni" ti rr with the murder of .Susie Harlin?" ask.'.i tbs reporter. The detectives laughed, and said that the ar? rest of Yu I.han had n .thins to do with that horrible butchery, They were anxious, however, to hustle tho Chinaman out of si-rfu as quickly aa possible, and .;i.i n"t piv anybody much chance to talk to him. It is known, however, that the Chinaman was suspeei.'d of knowing a good deal about the butchery, and that be was arrested because of that fact Yu Lhan. wh" keeps a laundry in Tenth-eve., vas si en, lt ls said, entering the house No. 517 West Thlrty-nlnth-SL. where little Susie's body srss found, carrying a bundle under his arm. A deaf and dumb maa named IfcCann, accord* in(- lo t!i" Story, SSW th- Chinaman enter the lou?'- with the bundle and remain inside about ?ree-quarters of an hour. The date would, lt aims, correspond with th-> Time of Susie's dis ipp trance from home. McCann communicated sith the police "fflcials in West Thirty-seventh lt. In writing, ar.l the result was th.- srreat of Tu Lhan. The latter speaks broken English and Ueviil.nt.y too frig-ht-.-ned to account for himself ?t present. Th - mysterious manner In which the p dice ar. h<)ld:np the prisoner and th? refusal "f. definite ^formation as t" his arrest lead many people t., believe that the authorities have discovered an Important clew ire the murder of ihe child. In crder to throw the reporters off the tr.i-k of the arrest Rogers an>l Crowley registered Ihe srisoner as fron No. 420 Tenth-ave. The place Js a flat-house of the better (lass, and ha three families. At So. 41 i Tenth-ave., in the basement, is a Chinese laundry. r'*in by B m Ul Who is sometimes known as Hu Jhan, a near ap? proach IO t!.e' name Of the Jeff.ison Market prisoner. This man bas for nearly three days been mlssinp. and this seems to lend some c dor to the assertion that he ls th<* man now under arrest. "While it was supposed that the p<>lice had abandoned the line oi Investigation among the Chinese, Rogers and Crowley were quietly working lt out on a significant suggestion n by T>r. Cyrus Edson, who had subjected ths ciothlnjf to a thorough chemical analysis. lt ls now pretty evident that ihe mouths of the Martin's have been used by the police. On Saturday ni?M, In a burst of drunken candor, ?Martin admitted that the mittens and hat found In the brewery ashes on Saturday morning, be? longed to the murdered girl. Th. n, in answer to h warning exclamation from his wife, he said that he had been mistaken, and that the cloth? ing was nut Susie's. Last night hs refused to say anything at all. The examination of Tu Lhan will be awaited with interest, as it may throw some light on one of the most mysterious crimes New-York has seen for many years.

CORN* ISLAM-, AN lMl'C'KTANT POINT, SAID TO HATS BEEN orvSN ip to tiu: numsH CONSfl. SHAT COMES TO LAY THC MATTEir BEFORE T1IIC WASH? INGTON Ac-rue iRrrma New-Orleans. March K.-}Ute advices from Blue "elds say that the. English warship Cleopatra has been relieved by the Canada, and the marines fran the Cleopatra have resigned their positions ns City police to the marines 0f th-* newly arrive! English cruiser. Laeayo ls still in command of the Keser vatlon, and th,* establishment of a Oovernmenl is St an abSChlte standstill. Humors of different kinds are numerous, but the Americans generally believe that a most Important trade has bern made between I.arayo and Tatitaln Howe, commandeer of th? Cleopatra When the Cleopatra arrived, Cap? tain Howe asserted that he was looking after the interests of the natives of the Reservation, which. under tr,.* Managua treaty of IM, was his duty. Thc rumor which has been generally cir.ui.it, d ti that Captain How,- made .-.. ,]eal with Commissioner Laeayo, in which Laeayo was left in absolute pos ( >Mloa Of the Heservatlon. and the English In rec? tum received Corn Island. This Island is situated aloin thirty miles from Hluefle'.ds and sixty miles from the mouth of tire Ban Juan Uiver, nn.l the mouth of thc Nicaragua Canal. This Island was selected by the i'nlted States ns a c isling stntl..n. and is dl.-ectly e,n the rout- of vessels miling to anel from the mouth of ihe Klcaragus Canal. Whether this rumor ls correct ls not positively known, but the Cleopatra bis been removed from Bloaflelds, snd '.he Hritlsh Consut state-, that she has sallc-Vl to Corn Island, fm the arrival of the Canada, the marines were sent ashore, bul on last Tuen lay, the day the John Wilson set BSlI for N W Orleans, these troops were- bei-*K remove.1. All these facts have Increased the Americans' belief that the rumor ls true, nnd they prevail"! upon the American Consul at Blueflelds to come to th" United States and lay the entire matter before the people at Washington, Consul Seat arrive.1 here to-day with that mission In view. A meeting of citizens was heM in littlefields nl.out two weeks SgO, snd two delenatcs?Consul H. B Beal aril Samuel Well- were selected to represent the Amer? ican Interests. In the course of an Interview. Consul Sent sal I that the Ilrst sgreemeal which was arrived a', be? tween Laeayo .ml Captain Hows '.n regard to a provisional government failed lo suit the Ideas of the Americans. LarRyo and Captain Howe wanted S council of three? Nicaraguans and two American! with Laeayo as chairman, and ihe Americans would not agree to this. Tiu- American Consul was to sp potm th.- members of the council, and hs selected Samuel Weil and Samuel Lampton. A meeting WSJ held, but nothing could be sgreed up n, ari i council disbanded. Another agreement was nr rlvi i at between the- British Consul Laeayo eui Captain Howe. When the llritish asked Mr -'? f.ir his opinion on tlie subject, he replied thal he? di'! not think lt was rr^h; for a council to be eom posi i of three- Bpaniardi and two Americans. ]>'? then suggested .cn-- or iwo delegates from fie other elements in the Reservation, bit this also came I i nothing. The Americans eli.: not care to !.?? a party to any such agreem.n' as they did not kn-ew whether it would meet with the approval of their country. Mr. Beat sall further that lhere was an a-r. ment between the Nicaraguans and tl.'- British, by which Lacavo was left as Oovernor of the Reser? vation. This he was met certain cf, ris he was not taken into any of the s'-.-r-ts .,f the arrangements which wre going fen between the- English nnd Laeayo. It has been Lacayo's policy to be e i crate toward the Americans, anel they have not suffered any Insults from the hands of hts troc ps. There were hundreds of irresponsible *,er--ons In the city, anel doubtless If lt had not tern for the pres? ence of the marines th--r.- WOUl 1 have been consid? erable bloodshed. There was no local governi and men dbl pretty much as they pleased. Nat? urally the Americans felt under obligations to tl marines, for they prevented a licet.

BREAKING INTO Tin: BUII-DINQ In pursuance- of this hlea Deacon nile!.ke and Trust'" ii'-ihi leaped the fence, snd made their way to 'he sid-- of the church to a window. Suitable tods mysteriously appeared and Deacon Rlbbecke, who proved to bs sn artist in his line, qulckl) pried open tip- shutters ami, then break? ing a pane of glass mad.- an entrance Into the edifice. Th" crowd w.is stridently iHerpp tinted thal no one was within the church to dispute thc forcible entrance of the bestegere and s groan went up Deacon Rlbbecke and Trustee Delhi quickly un bolted iii" Inner doon, and Un crowd, headed by tin- pastor, swarmed In. Pew mon curious sights lia v.- been wltn.-ss.-d In this city cen an Easter morning, and the patrolmen had to rub their eyes rigorously befon they could realise that they w.-re- iv.! taking pan in u Tammany district meeting Instead of an Baster morning service of the Central Park Baptist Chunk. But Rounds? man Stevena -n had been present ni several of the business meetings of the congregation snd was more used to th-lr methods than the patrolmen. Chisels, files and hammers were laid gaIds and Mr. Patterson, acting ns superintendent, con? ducted the Sunday-School exercises. Fires were start.*.! In the stoves and preparations were made as if for a siege. Mr. Patterson announced ss th.- opening hymn "Praise the Lord for Child? hood's Days" which was sung With a will and a ring of defiance. The servile' was hrlef. Uy this time th. members of the opposition, who had witnessed the triumphal entrance of the pastor, had retired from the scene, and were deciding on a new plan of action. In which warrants of arrest took the place of bolts, pad? locks nn.l resolutions of dismissal. llnl.I'lMl THK 111-XltT.AK HEItVIt'E. At 10.30 o'clock the church was one-third full, about 170 p?rsons being present. Of these about sixty were women, seventy children, and the re? mainder men, including reporters and policemen. Mr. Patterson took his place in the pulpit, and beside him sat the Rev. Mr. Post. He announced as his text a verse from the third chapter of Corinthians. As the pastor read the Scriptures the eyes of the congregation wandered to the motto inscribed on th" wall Just over his h<*ad. "This place will I give peace," and noted Its Special appropriateness. When the opening hymn was Bung lt was no? tice,] that the discord was not confined to the congregation, but wa.- also painfully evident in the choir. In place of tho sermon Mr. Patterson mad" a short talk, in which he said that the services were held under adverse circumstances. The house was not properlv warmed or in a condition for services. He announced that the servh es wi "lld he br|.--f. and were, In fact, about. to close. He said lt was rarely that he omitted any part of the services, but he felt Justified in so doing but assured his hearers that everything would ic comfortable for the evening service, in closing he said: "I hope and expect that the servtoes will be light during the week as heretofore, and they are hereby announced." A me.-ting of the memben "f th" church was then called and all outsiders were excluded. A TALK' WITH Mit. TATTKRSON. After the services Mr. Patterson was seen by a Tribune reporter. He Bald: "W? know we rep? resent the majority and we will see this matter through in the courts. The oth"r side want to Intimidate, by their methods, the women and Inexperienced persons t i k.-ep ihr-m awsy from th" mee ting on May 1. when three trustees will be elected.

He went out with his dismissal in his pocket. The hicks wen broken this morning liv order of the trustees. We have fully decided upon our couts.-, and it will !>?? taken to-morrow." What that course would be Mr. Patterson would not Bay, "Hut I wi',' guarantee," h" said, "that none of us will li" awake to-night for fear of arrest tc,-morrow." Th" opposition would lune little, to say about the matter, but lt was admitted that warrants WOUld b.- asked for to-day for th" arrest ..f the entire pariy who br.ike Into the church.

While it would appear that there has been no defalcation In the course of the admin? istration of Alfred C. Charin, Edward Wempls and Frank Campbell, the three Democratic.- pred? ecessors of Janies A. Roberts, Republican, the present Controller, lt would nevertheless seem that Mr. Chapln, Mr. TfsiRgls and Mr. Camp? bell remitted taxes to corporation,?, to the amount of $1,600,000 which they should have refined in the State Treasury. The taxpayers of ths State, through an err menus interpretation of the taxation laws by these three men, have thus lost $1,600,000. This is a pretty heavy burden for ths Democratic party, as represented by Mr. Chapln, Mr. Wemple anC Mr. Campbell, to shoulder. MR. CAMPBELL CNDER MO MISAPPREHENSION. Mr. Chapln and Mr. Wemple can plead In their defence that the United States Supreme Court had Riven certain decisions which led them to believe that lt would be unlawful for th"m to tax the Interstate business of the railroads, but Mr. Campbell ls prevented from submitting such an explanation ot Ms conduct by the fact that tho I'nlted States Supreme Court early in his term gave a decision which clearly declared that the railroads can legally be taxed on their inter? state business. Moreover, h-.* was advised of this decision early bl ills term of office by Attorney General Rosendale, one of his Democratic col? leagues. Mr. Rosendale also brought suit to ob? tain the opinion of the courts of this State upon the subject, and found that they agreed with the L'nlted Stat.^s Supreme Court. Yet, notwith? standing this warning from the law officer of the State, Controller Campbell went right on paying rebates to the railroads, just as his Democratic predecessor had done. Moreover, he took no steps which would bring to an immediate settle? ment the question whether or not the railroads were compelled under thc laws of this State to pay this Interstate tax. lt was early in 1802 th.it h" learned from Attorn.-y-Oencral Rosendale Of tl.t decision of the I'nlted States Supreme Court, bit it was not until late in 1S93 that he Used up a test case. Meanwhile the payment of tie rebates went on; and it was continued after th" test case had been brought. Controller Roberta! through the State courts, yesterday began a suit to recover for the State Treasury part of the sum wUcfa Mr. Campbell tims paid over to the railroads while aware that the United States Supreme Court had declared the tax s lawful one. Mr. Roberts is still In Buffalo, but will b-i here early te>-morrow morn? ing, and will then make public the result of an examination of the books in the Controller's office, showing the amount of tho rebates paid to the railroads of the State since 1887, or since Controller Chapln decided that ihe railroad cor? porations were being Illegally taxed upon their interstate business. These rebates were paid on th.- theory that since l!-!>0. when the Corporation Tax law was passed, the railroads had been Illegally taxed upon their interstate business, and that th- amount they bad unnecessarily poid must b-? returned gradually to them. MK. ROBgRTS EXPl-viNs THE MSCRXPAMCT. Ht-caklng about the matter over the long-dis tance telephone tc-day, Controller Roberts said: "A great many corporations in this State, par? ticularly the railroads, do a large volume of in? terstate business. By this is meant business which bedns in this State and is finished in an? other. Up t-' the time Mr. Chapln entered the i' ntroller's .nice, it had been customary t.. levy a tax on all of this int.-rs;.ite business At that time the United States Surname Court made a ruling that this could not be taxed. Then the State bogan paying back to the corporations M taxed a rebate. This has continued up to the present time, and about $H>",'?>0 of this rebate still remains unpaid. I'd to date th.- rebates paid t i van >us i-eea'ls on this account amount to $1. 810.000 or thereabouts ??"?? ,!'ltt ?* whew this statement of 11.600.000 discrepancy ari-.-s. since this rebate wss arranged, th." United states Court wolli 1 seem t.i have reversed Its own rul Ing. as a recent decision de Isres that th.- fr-an rhlse granted to Hie corporations within the State to transact this Interstate business is in Itself of intrinsic value, so-cording to the amount ,.f sin-h business transacted by each eorp.,ra "How about th-- charge that a defslOStloa has been discovered in your department'.'" "There bas been no defalcatl in that I have any knowledge "f. I think the whole thing grows out of tins r.-bate question." EX-ATTOKNEY-i.l'.VEl.Al, ROSEN!'ALE 3 ACTION. Simon W.

A tost case was not made up. however, until September. 1893. I was not responsible for this delay. It waa th.n argin-d before the Oeneral Term of the Supreme ('.curt of this Judicial district. Charles I.. Wells appeared for the railroads and I rep? resented the State. The test eas.- wa.s that of a tax which had been levied upon the Interstate business of the Pittsburg and Dunkirk and AMBp ghany Valley Railroad Company. Mr. Wells called attention to the fact that the I'nlted States Supreme Court, In a large number of de Clsions had declared that the States could not tax interstate railway business. I admitted this fact, and also that the Court of Appeals of this State had decided that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company could not bs taxed upon its interstate bunin-*;- faa* [n ibu State; yet I pointed our that the United States Supremo Court, In its latest opinion, had reversed all Its previous decisions on the matter, and the latest opinion must, be taken."
