DEATH OF A NAVAL HERO. Commodore Fitzhugh Expires at the Philadelphia Naval Hospital To-day. The Secretary of the Navy received a dis patch to-day announcing the death of Commo dore W. E. Fitzhugh in Philadelphia at 1 o'clock thia morning. Commodore Fitzhugh has had long and hon orable aervice in the navy. He was a native of Ohio. He graduated from the (navtl academy in 1854, was made a commander in 1862 and commanded the Iroquois of the North Atlantic blockading squadron ana was present at the capitulation of Fort Morgan. As com mander of the Oucheta he received the . surrender of the i*bel forces on the Bed river. He was promoted to a cap taincy in 1876 and made commodore in 1887. At tbe time of his death he was commandant of the naval atation at New London. Commodore Fitzhugh went to the naval hos pital iu Philadelphia as a patient from the New London station about two months ago and underwent an operation for removing a cancer. He improved after the operation, and two weeks ago was able to be about his room. He gradually grew weak again, however, and died this morning as stated. He was about sixty years of age, and was the seventh rank ing commodore of the navy. His death causes the following promotions: Capt. Joseph 8. Skerrott to he oommander, Commander Henry F. Pickins to he captain, Lieu\ Commander T. A. Lyons to be com mander, Lieut. E. C. Pendleton to be lieutenant commander. Lieut, (junior grade) F. H. Coffin to be lieutenant, and Ensign B. M.

"AN ADMIRABLE SEA BOAT." Commander Cbndwlck'a Unofficial Re port on the Trial of the York town. The Nary department has received an unof ficial report from Commander F. E. Chadwick, who was ordered to accompany the board on the trial trip of the Yorktown. He says that in obedience to orders he proceeded to" see on the 27th of July with the board on the York town. "On account of fog." he says. "I was unable to get outside until 2:55 p.m. I stood southeast of Sandy Hook light vessel 80 miles, and then stood ofT and on upon this line until Monday morning. The weather in the meanwhile being thick and rainy, with moderate swell from the southeast and south. Monday was clear with a strong breeze from the southwest. with moderate sea.

Everything about the guns and i carriages functioned perfectly; no structural | damage whatever was done; there was a slight splintering of the wood work at the fastening of the cabin state-room door, opening on the spar deck several panes of glass were broken in the cabin I 10 trunk veAfUator leading to ***** case abutting on mis ventilator was started Slightly. All this occurred at the firing of the star board poop gun when trained to nearly its extreme tram , art A. few wine glasses and tumblers were broken in cabin pantry; a small number of electa? light filaments were broken and one bulb. The ship shows herself an admirable ?** * remarkably steady gun plat form. She steams well into a head sea, taking scarcely any water on board. She rolls easily the extreme rolls being 20 degrees to leeward and 18 to windward; her windward rolls were generally 2 to 5 degrees less than to leeward " This report is prelimmsry to that to be made by the board. THE BEHRINcTsEA DISPUTE. Russia Stands Ready to Make Good Our Title. There is nothing for the government to do in connection with the Behring sea matter but to continue to enforo* the law, capturing as many piratical sealers as they find within our jurisdiction. The bluster in Canada does not even excite interest in either the State or Treasury departments. When the British govern ment communicates with us on the subject of ficially it will be time enough lor the State de partment to take the matter up. There is not the least little probability of war, but if there were it would place Englaud in a very awkward, not to say dangerous position. The policy be ing carried out with regard to these seal'fish eries was adopted only after very careful in quiry into the matter. The Houses committee on merchant marine and fisheries last session msde a thorough investigation of the question, the result of which was seen in the act reaf firming our rights over these waters. Before president Harrison issued his proclamation of April this act and everything pertaining to the legal aspect of the question was referred to the Attorney General, and there is a perfect agree ment between the State aud Treasury depart ments and the Department of Justiee. REPRESENTATIVE FA.BQUHABOX >CB8U'| P08IT10X A Sua reporter had a talk yesterday with Representative Farquhar who, with Mr. Ding ley, formed the strong end of the committee of the House that made this investigation. This country, he said, would go right on asserting and maintaining it* jurisdiction over the Behr ing Sea fisheries. "Ami," he added, "England can t say a word in earnest about the matter Russia stands ready to make good onr title del rived by purchase from her. Great Britain cannot afford to antagonize two great nations? Russia and the United States. There is no doubt about Bussia's disposition in the matter They guaranteed us a title and England cannot seriously question that title without antagonis ing Russia. If she went into a fight she would have two antagonists. This is all weU under stood in England as well ai in and America." War Department Changes. Daniel K. Wright of Iowa and Arthur C. E.

Why the Opposition to the Royal Grants' Bill Collapsed?The Maj brick Trial. Special CsMe IHspatch IoThi Fvf.xiko Kt*r. . Londox, Aug. 8.?There is much speculation in political circle* over the comparative col lapse of the opposition in its later stages to the Royal Grants' bill. 1 learn on highest anthority that the reason is the great soreness of some of the liberals at being rushed by the new radical party which, conscious of future strengh, de cides to he low at present. All agree that the Irish question must first be settled. Afterward there will certainly be a farther split m the liberals. The Maybrick case is likely to last till Tues day. Barristers are enthusiastic over the skill of Hir Charles Russell's conduct of the defense, but Stephen is a strung Judge, and if he forms a decided opinion he will press it strongly on the jury. The 1'arnell judges are hard at work going over the whole evidence. The withdrawal of the Parnellite counsel greatly increases their labor, they being compelled ' to sum np the Parnellite case for themselves. * Lord Cunraven. who is away yachting, is mentioned for the governorship of Bombay, shortly to be vacant. ANGEL OR DEMON. The Discussion (iolng on In Kngland Over Emperor William's Character. Special Cable Dispatch to Thk Etistiio Star. London, Aug. S.?A correspondent I sent to Spithead wires that the last fleet is completely hidden by blindiug rain. This and a stiff breeze are a bitter disappointment to thousands of sightseers, who chartered craft of all kinds to see the review. The German emperor is escorted everywhere by the prince of Wales, who is earning his recent extra grants by very hard work. The emperor is a voracious sight seer, and taking him about to inspect the fleet is no sinecure. Moreover, it is a severe tax even on the great tact of the prince, who dis likes his nephew greatly, never forgetting or forgiving his apparent brutality to the Empress Frederick. Everywhere there is a discussion of the em peror's character and very conflicting views are expressed. The truth lies between the augel and the demon theories. It is very difficult for Englishmen to understand the absolute view of his duties which he sincerely holds. I learn from Berlin that even the liberals there are now inclined to treat him more favorably. It is impossible to judge what view prevails with, the KngUzii public, for the emperor only visits Portsmouth and Aldershot. There was a curious instance of the exrlu siveness of royal caste in England at Osborne last night. Lord Salisbury was invited to stay with the queen during the emperor's visit but was consigned to a separate dinner room. RKLIGIOrS*FAXATIC9. King Solomon and Nebuchadnezzar Are In Jail. Savannah. Ga.. Aug. 3.? Sheriff Smith of Liberty brought James, the religious fanatic, to Savannah and scut him np to Milledville yesterday morning under his brother s care. He will be placed in an asylum where the irn poster Bell already lodges. Sheriff Smith says that King Solomon and Nebuchadnezzar are in jaiL There are twelve of the riotous worship ers in prison and, eighteen out on bail. The woman Walker, whom Bell beat in his exor cism. has died. Three accessories to her death are in jail. charged with murder. Most of the culprits are charged with assault with intent to kill. This is the fourth effort of Sheriff Smith. Three times he has destroyed the "Temple" and the "Ark" in spite of James' warning that whoever touched the ark would be stricken and die. The temple is a series of circular st"'. about an oak. King Solomon and Nebuchadnezzar are rest ing in jail. Nebuchadnezzar eats grass on all fours when an opportunity is given him to graze. A week from Monday those in jail will have a hearing before the county court. MRS. VAX AUKEN'S DIVORCE. Some Doubts Now Raised as to its Le gality. Wilmington, Del., Aug S.?The fact leaks oat here that Mrs. Van Auken, the wealthy daughter of the late Commodore Garrison, who was married in London a few days ago to Judge Andrews of New York, secured a divorce from Mr. Van Auken through the Delaware legisla ture in April last on the ground of the insanity of her husbtuul. The proceedings in the case were kept very quiet, and there is now some doubt as to their legality, on account of Mrs. Van Auken not having established a residence by remaining a year in the state. ?
