\ROAT FOR COLOMBIA.
THE MACHIAS ORDERED TO PROCEED WITHOUT DELAY TO COLON—IN TERVENTION UNLIKELY. Washington. Aug. — An order was Issued by the Acting Secretary of the Navy to-day for the punboat Machias. now at the Boston Navy yard. to proceed without delay to Hampton Roads, and there to prepare for departure to Colon, near the eastern terminus of the Panama Hallroad. At the Navy Department it Is explained that this movement has been ordered with a view of having the Machias take observations in .the vicinity of the isthmus. In announcing the ac tion of Use department It was officially stated that 'it la deemed needful that a United States rr&T vessel he- In that vicinity at this time." The order to the Machias followed a confer ence held at the Navy Department between Mr. Ade*. Acting Secretary of State, and Mr. Hack ett, Acting Secretary of the Navy. Mr. Adee had the dispatch received from Consul Gudger last night, saying that the revolutionists had held up a train for an hour at Mataehin, on the line of the railroad srinea the isthmus, and only about fifteen miles from Panama City. While this v.-n.s not regarded as threatening an inter ruption of traffic or giving any ground for inter vention by the United States, yet it was deemed advisable by the officials that one of our ships should be in the neighborhood, in order that suitable observations could be made and steps taken to meet any serious emergency that might arise. For the present, officials do not believe there will be any need of landing ma rines. The commander of the Machias, Lieuten ant-Comtr.Linder Nathan Serpent, is regarded at an officer of tact and ability, and. besides this, he has had recent experience in West In dian waters, having been in command of the Scorpion when she rr.ade her recent trip to La Guayra to keep watch on American interests In Venezuela. The Machias la a gunboat of 1.177 tons dis placement, with twin screws and good steam capacity. She has eight 4-inch guns in her main battery, six rapid fire gauM and one automatic gun. Her run to the isthmus depends some what on the length of her stay at Hampton Road^ but It is believed she will be ready to proceed with little or no delay, in which case the trip will take about ten days or two weeks. The attitude of the United States as to main talcing free traffic across the Isthmus of Pana ma was fully defined in 186 S. when extensive naval operations were carried on there An out break somewhat similar to the present one oc curred tarly in the year, and the insurgents captured Panama and burned Colon. When traffic became effectually blocked, the United State? determined to act, and the North Atlantic Squadron under Rear-Admiral Jouett. was sent to the isthmus. At the same time the Navy Department sent an expeditionary force from New-York, consisting of 750 seamen and ma -ine? commanded by Commander B. H. Me- Cal'.a" and including three Catlings and three 3-inch rifled guns. Admiral Jouett arrived at the isthmus on April 10, and at once landed ma rines end issued order* to open transit across the isthmus. Two armored cars, fitted with howitzers, Catling and Hotchkiss guns, were pent over the line, clearing the way and making the entire transit. Garrisons of marines were placed at Colon and Mataehin. the latter place being where the revolutionists have now held up a train, according to Consul Gudger's dispatch of yesterday. Commander Mc<-alla"s expedition established headquarters at Panama. Here Aizpuru, the revolutionary leader, was in full control, and was erecting barricades, ex pecting a battle with the Colombian army. Com mander McCalla acted energetically, and. gath ering his full force, occupied Panama on April 24. arrested Aizpuru and the other leaders, and held them prisoners until an agreement was signed that fighting should not take place within the city. Three days later the Colombian army arrived, and at a conference between the gov ernment generals. Aizpuru and Admiral Jouett the Insurgents capitulated. All of the United States forces were then withdrawn and were back in New-York on Ma.. 16. "h- Secretary of the Navy in reporting the incident pointed out that the 'act ion of the navy was carefully con fined to enforcing treaty stipulations for fre« transit across the isthmus, and that our inter ference ceased the moment this object had been accomplished. President Cleveland's message to Congress and the correspondence of Secretary Bayard also made clear that the sole purpose of the United States in employing force was to fulfil Its guarantee under the treaty of IS4O to keep the transit open across the isthmus. The present trouble on the isthmus Is far less formidable Than that of ISSS. but the procedure Is rr.ad>- clear in case the Insurgents obstruct traffic. There is no present purpose of sending a ship down from th« Pacific side. COMMISSIONER BBEA OPPOSES IT. SATS THE DOUBLE DOCKER IDEA FOR THE BRIDGE IS "Ati, ROT" BO PAB AS TRANB FV>RTATION FACOJTIES ARE CON CERNED—A CONTRARY OPINION. Bridge Commissioner John L. Shea Is against the pror»oßiUcn to make the Brooklyn Bridge a double decker, with four new cables and new anchorages. "As an engineering proposition It Is all right, but sc a transportation proposition It Is all rot." said Mr. Bhf-a yesterday. Continuing he said: "One preat trouble with the Brooklyn Bridge at present Is the congestion at the ends morning and night. The congestion would be increased by putting a •econd 6t -.iry on the present span. What we need 1* more hrtdces Three months ago I Bent a requl e:tloa to the Board of Estimate and Apportion ment for $3.o<«i.<>:iO or beginning work on Bridge No. J- We haven't heard anything about that requisi tion sinre. As soon as the money Is appropriated the work can be begun." William Hildenbrand. superintendent of the John A. RoebMnf a Sons Company, thinks that it would be entirely feasible with an expenditure of 13.500,009 to double the carrying capacity of the Brooklyn Bridpe by building a second story. He says It could be done without disturbing traffic. BUREAU FOR MAKTXG CITIZEVB. Jt.T>GE ASPXJJAXL SATS HE UNDERSTANDS THERE IS ONE IN BROOKLYN.

PHILBIN AFTER DIAMOND. SIGNIFICANCE IN" THE POSTPONEMENT OP BissEnr'S sentence. Captain Thomas J. Diamond, of the East Flfth-Bt. station, must answer to charges of neglect of duty presented by District Attorney Phllbln. Assistant District Attorney wans has prepared the complaint charging Diamond with falling to suppress disorderly houses in his pre cinct and to report properly to Police Head quarters. In connection with the charges against Dia mond were significant developments in the case of George Blssert, Diamond's ward man. convict ed of taking bribes, who was to have been sen tenced yesterday by Recorder Goff. Blssert'a sentence was deferred yesterday till Monday on the request of the District Attorney. The court room was full when Bissert walked in yesterday. The convicted man nodded and smiled to his friends The proceedings were begun at once, and "George Blssert to the- bar!" was called out. Blssert stood up. Assistant District Attorney Sanford then told the Recorder that he had been Instructed by the District Attorney to ask for a postponement of sentence until Monday. "Fact* a»-e being collected." said Mr. Sanford. "and we have some in our possession which the court, we believe, should have *.n its possession before sentence should be passed. We are not ready to proceed." "Well. I will grant the application of the Dis trict Attorney." said the Recorder. Mr. Levy began to object at once. He said that there was no reason for a postponement of sentence, that It was entirely unexpected, that the defence was not prepared for such a move, that no public good could be served by a post ponement, and that the defence was entitled to hear sentence now. Mr. Levy also said that the postponement would Interfere with counsel's vacation. Mr. linger quoted from Section 472 of the Criminal Code, which, he said, made It man datory on a Judge to pronounce sentence on the date set. except at the request of the defence. The Recorder took the book, looked over it for some minutes and then, abruptly closing It, said decisively: "Sentence Is postponed until Monday." That ended the proceedings. It Is generally said that three or four other men In the Fifth-st. precinct have been tell ing things, and that Mr. Philbin will give the Recorder some very Interesting information be tween now and Monday. It was suggested last night that District At torney Philbin may have received certain Infor mation about Captain Diamond, valuable to the Stat^ from Blssert himself, who. it was rumored, will try to shield himself as much as possible at the expense of Diamond. The case against Captain Diamond will proba bly be brought in some police court, possibly be fore Magistrate Olmsted. in the Centre-st. court, or before Justice Jerome, in the Court of Special Sessions. The charge Is merely a misdemeanor. If the police magistrate or Justice Jerome finds that a case has been made out against the cap tain, the matter will be referred to th*» grand Jury for Its consideration. Many persons at the Criminal Courts Building profess to see in the proposed action of the Dis trict Attorney his reasons for the delay in the sentencing of Bistort. Various affidavits have been secured, and they are said to be from the keepers of disorderly houses In Captain Dia mond's precinct. * The plan as outlined by those who see a de sign in the postponing of the sentence of Blssert Is to have the affidavits made a matter of record in the case of Captain Diamond, and then, after they have become a matter of record, to have the records presented to Recorder Goff before he sentences Btasert Some of Mr. Phllbin's friends think he will take Diamond's case direct to the grand Jury. They nay he has not forgotten the exasperating and useless delays he encountered In trying to get a decision in Captain Hertlhy's case.

Tip- train was !n the neighborhood of Bayport, where there are thl<*k woods on either aide of th<- track. Evidently believing tint he could not force the safe, anil that the best thing he could do was to make his escape, the stranger made a Hying Jump from the train. There was a disposition among railmad men to discredit the motive of the man. Although they would make no positive statements, they hinted .hat they did not believe a robbery was intended . The officials of the ad refuse to confirm the story of the attempted holdup. XOT INTERESTED IS TEXAS FIELDS. THE STANDARD Oil, COMPANY HAS NO MOXET INVERTED IN THAT REGION.

Argument was heard by Justice Gildersleeve in the Supreme Court yesterday on the application of .lames F. Madden, a taxpayer, for the continu ance, pending trial, of .-. temporary injunction granted by Justice Blanchard restraining the Board of Estimate and Apportionment. Street Cleaning Commissioner Xagle. the city and the New-York Sanitary Utilization Company from carrying out .1 contract by which the Sanitary Utilization Com pany was to dispose of the garbage of the city for a period of Bye years at the remuneration of $232. 000 a year. The granting of the contract was opposed by Con troller Coler and President Gossenhebner, who were defeated by a majority of one. John W. Bralnsley, counsel for Madden, appeared in port of tho motion to continue the injunction. Assistant Corporation Counsel Sterltng represented the city, the Board of Estimate and Street Clean ing Commissioner NagJe, while D«» Lancey Nlcoll opposed the application for the Sanitary Utiliza tion Company. After stating that the bid of the utilization com pany had been once thrown out. new bids at a much lower figure received and rejected and th» 1232.000 bid of the utilization company reaccepted, Mr. Brainsley said: / The Street Cleaning Commissioner was to blame, for he dlllifd and dallied along after objecting to the contract with the Sanitary Utilization Company until no other contractor could erect a suitable plant It should not be tolerated that a contract for five yean at $232.0™ should be granted, whereas oiily J90.000 .1 year had been previously paid. Mr. Sterling said the suit was brought to restrain the execution of a contract which had already been executed and that such an action by a taxpayer could not He Unless this contract had been ac cepted. the garbage of the city would have been left rotting In the streets In the month of August, a menace and danger to the health of the citizens. Mr. Nlcoll. counsel for the utilization company, *a!d that Colonel Waring decided that the old plan of dumping the garbage Into the sea should be abandoned. "<"Jarhai;e dumped in this way." said Mr. '' oil. "always drifts back to the shore. Colonel Waring came ly the conclusion that the methods employed by the Sanitary Utilization Company were the most suitable. "Our bid was the lowest bid It cost US $700,000 to ertct the plan', and any other bidder would have to get "v»-r that sum f-">r one year to carry II out. Thla Barrett company came in with a <-onir?*<-t. but ha<l no nppli.iKCts for its proj.er execution. The only person who Is to b-> held hlamaMe is Street Commissioner Nni;le. but If he had not accepted this contract a pestilence would hive broken out. and he would very properly be driven from office. The legislature, reroKnizinjr the necessity for hav t:u; th« garbage removed and disposed of with due regard to the health and convenience of the in habltants. did not insist on the acceptance Of the lowest bid. "The Board of Estimate nnd Apportionment could have actually Issued advertisement! which would have precluded any other person bidding, and yet the contract could not have been set aside on the ground of fraud.",' M: Nlcoll said the Ity had the right to buy the plant, and the utilization company would not de mand any profits for the loss of the business. Justice Gildersleeve reserved decision. COLUMBIA MAY SOT STAY. REAR-ADMIRAL BARKER SATS SHE WILL PROBABLY BE RELEASED IF A MORE SUITABLE RECEIVING SHIP is POUND. Rear-Admiral Albert B. Barker, commandant of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, said yesterday that no transfers would be made from the condemned re ceiying ship Vermont to the cruiser Columbia until the Columbia had been thoroughly cleaned. "The Columbia must be completely renovated be fore we ran permit live hundred m« n to live aboard li»-r." sii!.i Admiral Barker. "It will do the cruiser no harm and a great deal of good to be cleaned ln a thorough manner 1 <lo not suppose anything will he done to Incapacitate her for the use to which she Is adapted if the department finds a more avail able receiving ship for this yard no doubt It will release the Columbia." Asked If he thoug it tho Vermont would be pre served as a relic, the Admiral said: "if some one wants to purchase her, I suppose he can «lo so. Judging from the lack of Interest mani fested In the purchase of the Constitution from the government, I should say that It Is unlikely the purchase will be made. The Vermont has little historic Interest attached to her. I rather think that she will be allowed to remain where she Is now— here in the yard." The converted cruiser Yankee, which Is now at the League Island yard, has been spoken of as a more, satisfactory substitute for the Vermont. She has been used as .' marine barracks at the League Island yard The Yankee was formerly one of the Morgan Line of steamers, running to ports on the Isthmus of Panama. Captain A. 8 Snow, who Is in command of the recruiting station at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, has gained popularity with his men by delaying their transfer to the Columbia. He will retain hi." men in the "diseased" .-hip for at least a weak, and perhaps longer. Men are now at work cleaning the Columbia. A board composed of Captain Snow, Naval Con structor L. C. Capps, head of the construction and repair department of the yard: Lieutenant-Com mander R. T. Hall, acting head of the steam engi neering department, and Commander Rodgers, head of the equipment department, has been chosen to survey the cruiser. VERMONT MAY BE FUMIGATED. Washington.
