lan Germans are Indignant that the Prince
of Wales should have been selected to open
tho German Exhibition In London though In
the ordinary course of things he would b the
most suitable person t perform the function
It Is alleged that the Prince for some reason
threw cold water the
IhroW Watr on Exhibition project
from tbe start and that he only recently wrote
the Emptor that the enterprise was purelr a
speculation and advised the Kaiser to have
nothing to do with It The conseauenc Is
said to have been that the Emperor withheld
his support from the Exhibition until Us managers
agers laid convincing proof before him that It
was a genuine Exhibition worthy of patron
age There are some who reason that the I
Prince may have been correct in his criticism
of the purposes of the Exhibition A tho time
he communicated with the Emporor and that
his disapproval had the effect of
dlelPprova ea8t causing the
promoters of the affair to turn it Into a more
legitimate enterprise thus making it possible
for him t eivo it his open sanction

EcoTTDiLC Pa May 10 Today has been
another quiet Sunday in the coke region
About the only bustling that is being don f
by the bosses A number are reported a out
among the strikers trying to Induce the drivers
to return t work This kind of labor they are
sorely in need of At tie Lelsenrlngs yester
day employment was refused numbers ol
miners on account of not having haulers to
te the cool from the mines
AdjutantGeneral McClelland left the region
on Saturday evening after Inspecting the More
wood and Central mines I Is reported that he
intended visiting several other mines on Mon
day but notcls a given him by the coke
companies that his presence and that ot the
labor agitators at the works as smelling
committee WAS not wanted and would not be
tolerated The courtesy of permitting to
Investigate the charges of cruel treatment t
JorewooJ and Central a considered suffi
cient to convince him that the charges were
flao of the and Governor made only to work upon the credulity
The General Managers Snoerintendrnts
enl quite encouraged todar They say unless I
agitators get around I number of the men and
do mischief there will he a great mob of strik
ers asking for work tomorrow morning Tuoy
say that runny delegations visited the offices
ou Saturday evening and made application for
work In every case they wero employed and
work was when them except ut places when
he works are crippled for the want of haulers
While these places are of course few Itlia
great drawback to the operators In their effort
to break the strike In citing eriilenon that
the strike is going to pieces and that It will be

when yon see men during strike moving
from ono works lo another you can safely Buy
the strike wont last and that there Is a grit
rral disposition to give up the battle Last
week unless than thirty lamllles moved from

object Is evidently to lose their Identity and
avoid being called blacklegs But when they
resort to this you can always till that they

or the Bencen runnel
A defected switch caused an accident last
night on the Erie Railroad which came pretty
near being serious Train No 31 on the New
York and New Jersey branch from hack
ensack and due In Jersey City at
710 was deflected from the main track
about a mil beyond the Bergen Tunnel and
ran Into a switch engine on the side track The
seven oars wore crowded with passengers
many of whom had to stand for lack of seats
The shook threw them together into heaps
and the flying glass was scattered over some
of those In the forward cars In shower
Several ot the passengers were pretty badly
cut about the face but no one was serIously
Injured
The Pilot cab of the engine attached to the
train was smashed In but the engineer George
Nicholson ana hlsflreman escaped unhurt
There Is a curve at the point of the collision
and tbe train was running slowly on thatao
count
The cars were brought Into Jersey City by
another engine and arrived about half an
hourlat The train was In charge of Con

TOLEDO May 10 Shortly after leaving Elk
hart last night passengers on the Lake Shore
limited eastbound train wore startled by three
sharp reports in rapid succession Ono ot the
window in the New York car had been shat
tered by a rifle or pistol boll Another ball
was embedded in the framework above the
window A third shot seemed to have missed
the train entirely The occupants ot the sec
tion where the shots struck were Mrs FH
Winston of Chicago and Miss Winston The
glass foil In pieces in Miss Winstons lap
The fact that throe shots were fired almost
simultaneously and that two of thorn struck
the car in about the same place seems to Indl
ate that two or more persons did the shoot
Ing They also go to show that there was a
deliberate Intention to shoot at the train and
hot the shots did not come from a stray hunt
ng party nor from a target shoot Tire por
ters and conductors of the train concur in the
opinion that Miss Winston was really tn great
peril and that the fraction of a second in the
motion of the train or the lowering of the di
rection of the ball by a low Inches might have
resulted in serious bodily injury to her if not
In her instant death

The Robert and aClanle Capture
Bin FiUKctsoo May 10A morning paper
says that when the Charleston sailed on Bat
nrday morning It was under sealed order A
cipher despatch wo received by Cant Horny
at midnight on Friday It took over three
hours to translate tile despatch and at 4
oclock In themornlngall visitor wero ordered
ashore and the Charleston hastily put to see
The Charleston Is provisioned and coaled
for a long cruise and Instead of going outside
to try her guns as was the general supposi
tion itissaid that she ho gone In pursuit of
the Chilian steamer Itatn with orders to cap
ture her If the Charleston does not catch her
the orders are to keep on until Admiral Brown
is encountered In Chilian waters The trans
fer of arms ammunition Ao from the
schooner Robert and Minnie to the Itatawas not
completed until Friday afternoon so that the
Insurgent vessel has start ot thirtysix hours
The Charleston has not yet returned to this
port aa she would have done by this time U
she had gone simply for target practice
WAflinNOTOx Slav 10It Is believed her
that orders have been sent to Admiral Brown
commanding the Pacific station and to Ad
miral McCann commanding the ships ot the
South Faolflo station to capture the Itata by
force II necessary and take lion to the first
American port
oeoreiary iracy lots mo city ycBteraay on
the Despatch lu company with Commodore
Folger to Inspect the now naval proving
ground down the Potomac and has not yet re
turned
There Is the strongest reason for believing
that tho orders were issued yesterday before
he left the department and that the Charles
ton Is now on her way south after tho Itata
The Itata is an iron screw propeller ship ot
1200 tons and was built In England In 1873
She has compound engines of antiquated
make and Is not capable probably of steam
ing more than nine or ten knots an hour
She was formerly owned and operated by the
Chilian Steam Navigation Company and was
doubtless seized by the insurgent at the be
ginning of the insurrection The United
States vessels In Chilian waters are the Balti
more and the flagship Pansacola with lies
Admiral MaCann In command
The San Francisco when last hoard from had
left Peru and will likely join the Baltimore and
Pensacola early this week With the Charles
ton the Admiral would Lava under his
command the three finest ships of
the new navy besides the Pensacola
Which is the best of the wooden class In
the service With these four ships it Is not an
ticipated > T naval officers that much opposi
tion would bo met with should the United
States Bee fit to capture the Itata even should
she bo reSnforced by the best ships of the In
surgents
Los ANQKIXI May 10 Before the schooner
Robert and Minnie was captured by the United
States Marshal Pilot Dill who took the Itata
out ot Ban Diego harbor wont ashore and was
arrested at San Pedro Supercargo Burch
came to Los Angeles and was traced by a re
porter to Arcade Depot where be was waiting
to take a train to San Francisco Burch at
first denied that be was the man wanted but
afterward acknowledged It Ho was arrested
and Is now In custody of the United State
larshIs
Marshal Burch says he landed the arms but
declined to say at what point but It Is BUPDOSOU
to nave been at Catalina or San Clements
BAN btrao May 10The manofwar Omaha
steamed out of the harbor yesterday and after
passing the heads stood out to sea in a south
westerly course Commander Cromwell re
ceived a mass of correspondence In cipher
from the Navy Department and it Is under
stood that he bas Instructions to cruise around
the Coronado Islands and Han Clemente to Una
out if possible where the Hobart and Minnie
met the Itata and to pick up the Itata if

Deputy Spauliling put in the day securing ts
timoy corroborating Spauldings statement

skipped across the lot and into the hollow
trunk of an old tree that lay near the high
board fence
The lot Is used as n playground by the boys
who live in the flats further west on the block
It happened that a number of boys were there
when the rat frolicked by They gave ehnse
but the gray rat sat in his retreat In the log
and licked his whiskers In peace
To Johnny Carr occurred tIle Idea of giving
the rat a froa smoke To say it wan to dolt
and the gray rats nostrils melt the smudge
Positively unendurable Bald the big gray
rat as be ran out of the log and his foot twin
kled toward his home In under the wall The
boys were alert and went after the gray rat
with a whoop When they remembered their
pmoke It had increased to a blaze and the
blaze bad eaten up u large part of the board

Then there was an alarm of fire and the
