naval vessels. Commodore llnmsay nnd As
sistant Secretnry Holoy this morning would
neither nfllrm nor deny tho stntomont that Ad
miral Ghorardl had sailed with his squadron
for tho South I'nclflo from rort-nu-rrlnco.
They paid thnt tho Philadelphia nml Concord
nro not nt Port-nu-rrlncu. but nddod that they
didn't know whoro they are. Tlio Kcnrsnrco
Is still at Tort-au-rrlnce. but Is expected to
follow In a few dnys. As to tho ordor to Ad
miral Ohernrdl to take command of tho floet.
It is snld that it is contingent upon hostilities
actually breaking out, nnd that ho is to take
command only In enso ot war. Commodoro
llnmsny paid thnt tho department sont n mes
sago to Admiral Ohernrdl yesterday which
failed to reach-Jilm. ho having loft Tort-nu-l'rlnco
boforo It nrrived there. Ot this move
ment of his, Commodoro lUmsny snld, tho de
partment had not been notified. Ho would not
spenk. howevor. of tho naturo of tho senorni
orders Issued to Admiral Ghorardl.
Tho Commodoro was asked If ho knew, or if
tho dernrtmont had beon advised, of the des
tination of tho throo Chlllnn cruisers that n
Valparaiso despatch said hadsnlled from thero
under senled orders. Ho said It wns not true
that tho crulsors had left Valparaiso ns re
ported. Only ono vessel had gone, tho l'smor
alda. and her mission wns to relievo tho stoara
er.Tnhn Elder, wrecked 1"." miles south of
Valparaiso, and not In tho Straits of Magellan,
as the press despatches said. Thn Esmeralda

Thn sailing of the Yorktown from Valparaiso
for Cnllao last night, mndo public by tho Navy
Department tn-ihty, carrying tho ltalmacodii
relucees, is construed l,y oilleials. In the ab
.sence of iiiformutlon tn tho contrary, to mean
that tho Chilian Government persisted ln Its
refusal to give thn refugees snfo conduct, and
that tlioir only safety lay In transport by tho
1'mted States vessel. Tho departure of tho
Yorktown takes tlio only vessel of tho United
states from tho harbor, and Secretary Tracy
said to-night that no othni-vessel had beon or
dered to take her plaeo thoro.
The Navy Department lias ordered tho old
slugle-tuiret monitors, which have for years

niv.u-ding to tlio account popular about tlio
Navy Department, he placed arnvolerto tho
surgeon's head nnd threatened to shoot him it
any iitteun t nt nmnutntion wore made. Tho
leg was not amputated, but it was so badly in
jured that it left Commander Evans n cripple
for life. Iln successfully resisted attempts to

disability, and served for many years on shore

It Is stated to-day, ns it was stated last night,
but with moro posltivencss and moro elabo

WAsmvoTON. Jan. 20. Tho Domocratlo Con
vention city soekers opened up shnrp nnd
enrly this morning with their booming, and
thoy lmvo boomed awny nil day with tho in
tensity of purpose clinractorlstlo of Domo
cratlo contests. Pino HncBnro being drawn
to-night by the various delegation manacors.
nnd onch ono Is figuring out a sweeping victory
for his own city on tho strength of " insldo In
formation on n list ot socond-chotce prefer
ences, you know." Until lato this evening,
howover. loss than half the National Com
mltteomon had nrrived. nnd bonce there
wns a scnrclty of genuine rnw mntorlnl
to work on. Those who wero hero were found
to be decidedly non-commlttnl. No doubt thoy
wore borod with tho anxious porslstenco ot
tho entertaining boomers. Hut this evening's
arrivnls hnvo brought tho number of
committeemen or proxies prosont up to about
forty, nnd now tho hand-to-hand encounters
nro bolng hotly waged with tho determination
of anover-go-to-bed spirit. Humors of vnr
lous combinations aro topics of oxcltcd
discussion nnd hasty oonforencos. The two
rumors most persistently talkod ot nro: ono
thnt Chicago Is on still hunt with
n tip -from the New York dologatlon
that they will start tho stampodo for tho big
WesUirn city: tho other that Cincinnati's
managers hnd completed a deal with Hill.
Gorman, and Ilrlce. in which tho snmo Tam
many tnflunnco would bo used to send tho
Convention to tho Queen City. New Yorkers
hnvo had to ropoatedly protost the sincerity
of tholr fight for Now Y'ork.
Ronator Brlco. tho National Commlttoe
Chairman, said to Tub Sun reporter: " Tho
impression has been quito generally current
that tho Domocratlo Convention should go to
the plaeo that can most satisfactorily nceom
modatosuch a huge political gathering, and
thnt cither New York or Chlengo should bo
chosen. That impression lias gained ground
to-day. I flud, nevertheless, that there are
good reasons for believing thnt tho Conven
tion will lm located in somo othor city. Tho
late urrlval of the committeemen has mndo it
difficult to discover u. decisive trend of opinion
In favor of nny city. There is no doubt that
thn delegations of citizens from tho lesser
Western cities have nuido marked progress in
convincing us of their capabilities for accom
modating our Convention."
Knnsns City boomers seem to have easily
distanced tho other Western contestants in to
day's booming. With them thero Is less of tho
"Hurrah boys" style and more "lino Insltloar
pnment with cold facts." us ono mom her of tho
National Committee put it. Tho Ml'sourinns
urn using heavy guns and nr working as a
unit Asld" from thn htato dignitaries who
head tho delegation, there tiro two men who,
more tlinn any ono else, have won laurels from
their linn effective work Witten McDonald,
tho wealthy llnaneierwho hasjustwon control
of tho Kansas City 7'ime., and Judge Gibson, n
loading Democratic candidnto for Governor.
Through their efforts tho big party leudors
have givon ear to Kansas City s appeal, on
pocltlvo assurances. Ilrst, of excellent facil
ities for accommodating tho Convention, and.
second, that no malign Influences will exist
there against any candidate.
"Missouri Is for party success over tho am
bitions ot any man." said Mr. McDonald: "and
ns to accommodations, our facts and our bonds
are simjily unimpeachable."
The Milwnukeo forces havo been somewhat
dnmorallred. it is said, by the offorts of the
Vilas faction to offset the talk about promises
looking toward a Hill Convention. They have
been very busy, however, entertaining tho
committeemen ns fast as they arrived, and are
claiming the prizo on tho third ballot, when
tlioy oxjiecttlio bt. PnuIItes to come over to
them. Thero is sorao talk of n sort of olfenslvn
and dofon-ivo alliance between St. Paul nnd
Milwaukee against the Southern combination.
Tho Hoosier folks regard their prospects
with great complaeencv. nnd insist that tho
leaders havo already givon their word to re
gard Indianapolis as tlio most desirublo plaeo
on which to compromise.
Tlio Detroit boomersorrlvcd earlythls morn
ing, but are not booming to any considerable
extent. They have a lino delegation, headed
by the Democratic Governor of tho Republican
Statu nnd tlm Republican Mayor ot tho
Dernocratlo city of Detroit. They did
not write tor accommodations In time to get
Into tho Arlington, so they are at tho Ebbott,
ilvo blocks away. Eun thero they have no
headquarters, but keep open houso niter a
fashion at a newspaper office. Detroit Is n
lino city to boom, but there Is no life In tho
present effort, nnd the tieautiful "City of tho
Mrnlt" does not seem to bo in the race to any
gi eat extent.
Among htatements mado In the interests of
St. Paul Is the following, printed in a locnl pa
per this morning. Thn assurances of the em
inent signers ot the telegram that all applica
tions for accommodations hnvo heen satisfac
torily granted cnuso somo astonishment to
those who have vainly sought for rooms and

Yonkkrs. Jan. 20. Thero was nnother wreck
on tho Now York Central this morning. It
hnppened nt Glenwood a little after tl o'clock.
Train 22. known as tho Montreal express,
collided with a freight train. Tho express
was running slowly. No ono was hurt nnd
nothing was injured excent two freight cars
nt tho roar of tho freight train. Tlio Montreal
express, after it had passed Dobbs Ferry, was
ahead of timo. and therefore tho engineer was

a point midway between Dobbs Ferry and
Hastings itoveitook the freight train, which
v,nson tho third track, nnd tho two trains, sldo
by side, drew slowly down toward Yonkors.
As tho freight train nenred the switch house
nt Glenwood the engineer blew for the switch.
The switchman hearing tho signal nt nncn
shifted the htitoh to allow the freight train to
make tlio siding. At this point tho third track
merges Into tho main track.
As soon us tho freight started to mnko tho
snitch, tho express slowly diopned back un
til thn engineer of the freight train could put
his train onto tho siding and so clear tho main
truck. The switch In some way did not eatcli.
nml ns the cars of tho freight train passed nv r
it. It wns tlirown open at tlio south end. This
allowed tbo freight train to pass on tho main
trnck. 'Iho express by this time was under
considerable headway, and before the engi
neer could stop his train, ho crashed Into tho
rear ond of tlm freight which was nbead of
him. After the wreck hnd been cleared nwny.
tho express train proceeded to XewYoiknnd
the freight train was detached fioui the
