CITZ or MEXICO via Oolveston Mar 18
The AngloAmerican newspaper publishes rumors
mors ot tho sinking of tho Itata by the United
States cruiser Charleston but gives neither
time nor place The authorities here say they
have no Information whatever en tho subject
The Government has given strict orders to the
port authorities on tho Pac I lo coat to re port the
appearance of any Chilian or other war ships
I will bo difficult to got news as the Govern
ment wires have to be relied
wlrs b relod on altogether
The general opinion here Is that the Itata and
her corners will double up on tho Charleston
The Government has ordered the gunboat
Dotnocratn to keep n sharp lookout for tho
vessel I It Is rumored here that a private tele
gram has been reoehed announcing that a
flshlncschooueryosterdny saw two vessels out
at sea off tho coast at full speed One of tho
vessels was sighted at 10 A M and tho other
at 2 PM but they were so distant that the
fishermen woro not able to distinguish them
This report however cannot be traced to a
reliable source
SAN Diana May Passengers on the
steamer Crescent City which arrived at Codros
Island lait night report that when about ten
miles below Enscnada Monday night the
cruiser Charleston was sighted fir out to sea
As soon as the officers on the war ship caught
Bight ot tho Crescent City they
sllht Cresout changed course
and made dlroclly for her As coon n the
cruiser approached the Captain of the Cres
cent City raised the American flag and tainted
Tim Charleston Immediately turned at right
angles nnd steamed to southwest
nnlles away and
soon disappeared beyond the horizon Tbo
Crescent City officers report seeing nothing of
the Itata
WAshINGToN May 13 When the doors of
the Navy Department wore closed this after
noon Acting Secretary Itamsay was no wiser
than bo was yesterday respecting the where
aboutB of the Charleston and the Itata In
the absence of farts the department officials
are discussing the legal aspects of the CIO
prosontod by the flight of tho Itata There
baa been some modification of tho lows held
by leading naval officers and it docs
Icadlnl ofcars not ap
pear thnt thero Is any longer a tenable claim
that tho I Itata may be solzoJ as a pirate
I Is recognized that she can bo reo
captured for violation ot the customs laws
disregard of the court and perhaps for kid
napping but any assumption that sho Is a
pirate is completely negatived by the doctrine
laid down by tho late Francis Wharton former
ly Solicitor of tbo Department of State and an I
eminent authority nn international This
doctrine was accepted by Secretary Bayard
and lull down at tho time of tbo Colombian
rebellion and tho Panama trouble The
Colombian Government bail declared tho In
surgent vessels to be pfrates na tho Chilian
Goternmont has done but the Secretary held
The Government of the United State can
not regard a piratical vessels manned bv
parties in arms against the Government of
Colombia when sucb vessels tire passing to
and from ports bold by such insurgents or
even when attacking ports in the possession
of tint nations Government In the Into civil
war the United States at an early period of chJ
struggle surrendered the position that tbono
manning Confederate cm lser were pirates
under international laiv The United Mates
of Colombia cannot sooner or later do other
wise tbon accept tho inne view Butltaowover
this may be no neutral power can acquiesce
in the position now taken by the Colombian
Another fact which may be of Interest In
view of tbe expected arrival 0 the Itata at a I
Mexican port probably Acapulco Is that she
cannot stay there Under tbo practice of in
ternntionai Jaw ino aiexicun uoeminent
could apt refuse to protect her but eho could I
not remain in port more than tneutrfour
hours at to d so would subject hor to the
charge of using the port as a bnsa of opera
tons against a friendly Government So that
I the vessel teaches l Acapulco before the
Charleston the latter essel would have
simply to wait outside the port fortwentvfour
hours to Itt an opportunity to retake the
Data and her stores providing that these hove

No one can charge Capt George C Homey
the commander of tbo Charleston with being
afraid of gunpowder His record duiinc the
civil war Is a sufficient refutation of any such
barge I Is pretty safe to say that even
should ho catch sight of the Itata undor con
voy of tho cruiser Estneralda aud the latter
should give any evidence of protest against
the capture of the Itata he will not hoist the

that among Ibo kllloil wore several Italian

alibi clear a daylight to ocupato them from
tho Hcnnessy murder Those men have left
their wives and children destitute Would It
not be just and equitable to Indemnify the bo

In a further interview tonight Signor Corte

Ho said that on the nlplit of the lynching moro

clared that the murdcrof their follow citizens

rene They declared their intention of I
blowing up with dynamite the Plekwlck
Club of which none of the loaders of tho mob
as a member Ho argued with them several
hours on the subject pointing out that any
act of this kind would do moro harm than
good would stir up the anger of the mob
against the Italians and precipitate a race riot
in which women and children would lose their
lives Those arguments teemed to have no
effect on them and it was only when ho threat
ened to denounce by name to the authorities
tho men who proposed this crime that they
abandoned tHeir purpose

la Fact He May Arrive on the Steamship
Fnert ntmarck on Saturday Next
TbeTammanytpeople are agog with expecta
tion over the return of their chieftain lllchnril
Croker All through the rank and fllo there Is
a settled conviction that ho will noon como
back and some ot those who always know
what is going on donl In mysterious hints
that he Is now on the ocean homeward bound
This Is In despite ol n recently circulated
rumor that he might not return this summer
Mayor Grant CominlEslonnr Gllroy and
other Tammany magnates who really do
know the facts do not say anything In support
ot the story that Mr Crokor will not como
homo this summer But they try to make li
appear that It Is not certain just when ho will
comeback At the same time they are die
playing a remarkable interest In the first trip
of the new North Gorman Lloyds steamship
Fuerst Bismarck which loft Southampton on
May 9 and is due here on Saturday
One of the dozen or less ot those who are In
the secret admitted yesterday that Mr Orokor
Is a passenger on the now ship and that prep
arations for his reception are on foot These
preparations do not Include any brass band
welcome any tugboat escort or any such de
monstration Mr Croker Is always opposed to
any thing ot the kind and the disposition this
time seems to be to have his advent unaccom
panied by any public notice Th news of the
embarkation has been kept a profound secret
bythoEOtrho shared It though Dome Rumor
came pretty close to Betting hold of It
The very groat political interest In Mr
CrokeVs return Is dependent upon his views
and judgment of the situation here These
cannot be formed or expressed until he has
become Informed as to what has happened In
his absence Bo the plan was to keep his re
turn quiet until he should bare time to look
over the ground
Among those who are to be on hand to wel
come him Is exMayor Edward Murphy Jr ot
Troy a close personal and political friend
And under the original plans he would have
j been much more apt to have found a retreat at
the head of Hudson River navigation in which
to got Hd of his sea legs than to have resorted
to the neighborhood of Mount Morris Park
Mr Crokors return lacks the feature of
general Interest that attached to his arrival
nearly a year ago when ho came bat k In June
to testify before the Fassett committee Than
he was an Invalid interrupting pilgrimage In
search of health to face an inquisitorial and
antagonistic political engine known as an in
vestigating committee and to dispose of nome
fantastla and sensational misrepresentation
This time his coming Is preceded by the posi
tive information of his complete restoration to
health and the Interest In what he will have to
t ay Is a matter of politics In the city and In the

Beenre the Content of the Express Car
The Pacific express on the West Shore road
which Is scheduled to leave the Weehawken
station nt 880 oclock wns delayed on Monday
night That Is why the Woohnwken and West
Haverstrnw local which starts at the same
hour wont out nhoad of It It Is an unusual
occurrence for the Pocino express to start
The local stopped at New Durham just be
yond Woehawkon at 835 It was Its last reg
ular stop before reaching Haverstraw A mils
beyond New Durham Is Little Ferry and half
n mile beyond that the Northern Hallroad of
Now Jersey passes under the West Shore
lust as the local approached the bridge over
those tracks an explosion occurred The train
was under good honlwav and it wag Impossi
ble to stop It possod right on and went over
the bridge where the conductor stopped to ln
Tho train consisted of an engine and two
cars The glass In the headlight ot the engine
was smashed by the explosion and both the
cub windows A number of windows In the
cars wore also broken
There were few passengers aboard and the
whole thing happened too suddenly for any
annie to take place
When the train wan stopped the conductor
nnrlnar anal anvaral rut ha hata 4 S
flauMAUu flUb flLe
and walked back to Investigate
Close to the out through which the Northern
Railroad ot Now Jersey ran about three feet ot
the track was found torn completely out and a
hole blow out of the earth beneath It It was
a wonder that the train passed over safely
That It did so can only be attributed to the
fact that It was under headway and was a
short train
The conductor and brskemen ran back and
flogged the Piiclffo Express which was close
behind The express stopped and was quickly
switched over to the southbound track which
was uninjured and upon that passed the scene
of the explosion and over the bridge whore it t
was switched back to the northbound track
mid proceeded on Iti way to Chicago and the
West with littlo loss of time
It is i supposed that tho explosion was caused
by train wreckers who hoped to throw the
Pacific express Into the cut just ahead and rob
It at their leisure
This express train Is always loaded with
money and valuable for the West On Monday
carried no more than its usual load of valu
ables but that was considerable
Had the express not boon delayed It would
probably have been thrown Into the cut by the
explosion as It hnd seven or eight cars at
tached two ol which wore filled with express
packages forwarded by the National Express
After the express passed an examination ot
the track showed evidences ot a deliberate
clan to wreak the train Fastened by a win
to a plOLO of the track which was blown out
was a portion of a Blxby blacking box which
contained an explosive probably dynamite
At ono side of tin track was a cigar box
filled with a substance which the railroad
officials said was draralto From It stretched
two fuses to the ends of which were affixed
iJercusslon caps
It looked as though the train robbers had In
tended to fix this magazine also to the rails
but had been frightened off and were able only
to Attach the blackingbox bomb
Had this also been attacheh it is probable
that the local would have been thrown off the
track and wrecked down tho embankment in
the cut
There has been an attempt on the nart of the
railroad officials to hush the story up and yes
terday afternoon they denied its truth to a
SUN reporter
The officials ot the National Express denied
any knowledge of an attempt to wreck their
train It In known that detectives are on the j
cage In tho Interest of the railroad a
The President of the National Express Com
pany said yesterday that the Pacific Express
carried dally express packages to a large

It was reported that 85000 In money was

The express curs carry some paper money
but the bulk of the cargo consists of miscella
