FRIDAY • • July 1882* SAN tKAN CISCO'S STAKE. The Daily Report says that all the ex citement of the war across the waters is not confined to Alexandria or even to the European and Asiatic Continents alone. Nothing has happened for a long time to so stir the mercantile blood of the California metropolis as the war between England and Egypt. “If the Egyptians destroy or seriously injure the Suez Canal,” says the Report, “the trade of India and China which has been passing through it will have to come via San Francisco for years hence. Aside from the people under or behind tho guns we have the greatest stake in to- biy V events in Africa.” Our contem porary has either built an air castle »n its ,..vn sanctum, out of its own mind, or has caught the fancy with which it sports from the extravagant talk of some fellow whose whole mental life is made up of speculation. The possible diver sion of Oriental trade suggested is the wildest sort of an effort to bull San Francisco stock. There is no reasonable expectation that the established course of commerce through the Suez Canal will be more than temporarily disturbed. It is not impossible that as a bone of con tention this valuable property may ulti mately involve several of the great Pow ers of Europe in war. Judging from the present outlook, however, such a catas trophe is extremely improbable.. But should a war occur it will not last long. Owing to the condition of things that prevails at present on the continent of Europe, if war comes it will be started quickly. Every Continental nation, and England, too, are prepared for it. The force of the conflict will be exhausted probably within a year. The struggle will be a tremendous and awful one, but cannot last long. Vast armies already marshaled will be hurled upon each other. There will be a grand and ruin* ous crash, followed shortly by an en forced peace, as, after an earthquake in which the rebellious forces of nature are spent, order is again restored. Let the worst of wars be presumed, however, and let it be granted that England shall lose her power and her interests in the canal. Then will some other Power or combination of Powers hold and manage | it. In no case will the fancied benefit accrue to San Frauciseo. The Suez Canal, though an artificial highway of commerce, is as fixed and as certain in its future uses in trade a3 the natural river bed of the Mississippi. It is an es sential in the commercial affairs of the dominant Powers of Europe and they will keep it open forever. If the signs of the times are not very deceptive, it will not be long before the San Francisco Suez Canal stock will have passed off the Board. CARSO X M I XT MATTERS. Canon Daily Bee. “For some time past gross charges of corruption against the officers and man agement of the Carson Mint have been in circulation. The charges are of so grave a character that, for the benefit of the institution and the parties concerned, public policy, and a regard for the tax payers of our commonwealth, immediate j steps should be taken by the authorities at Washington and a thorough investiga tion made. The proprietors of the Bee have no feel- j ings of animosity against any of the officers or attaches of the Mint; and it is an un pleasant duty to present to the public the serious charges made by citizens of Carson, but having ‘no friends to reward nor enemieia to punish,’ but being seri ously impressed with the duty devolving upon an independent journal to present matters pertaining to the public’s inter est, after duly considering the proofs and evidence filed in this office, accompanied with depositions and documents, we have concluded to present the alleged facts to i our readers. We would much preferred j to have had some Republican paper pre- j sent this matter to the public, it being under a Republican administration, and i feeling that possibly some sensitive indi- : viduals might charge the Daily Bee with j being influenced by partisan motives, j which would bo a travesty upon the I truth. We are creditably informed that j the alleged facts have been offered to j some Republican papers, which refused 1 to publish them, although admitting that the allegations were doubtless true, but fearing the ‘present administration would not do anything, and they would only get the trouble for their pains.’ The more likely theory is they would rather condone the fraud than to expose their party if fraud exists. This, in our opinion, is poor policy, more dangerous than many etforts to rectify evils where they exist. We are aware that the charges will he met with counter charges, claiming that they are made by prejudiced ex em ployes. Common sense dictates that it would be almost impossible to come from other sources. Men holding positions in the Mint, possibly under duress, are not going to make charges; those not in a position to know cannot. It matters not what are the motives, but what are the facts." It is apparent that the Bee makes no specific charges against the Mint man agement, but promises to do so in its next is3ue: What it will publish is not likely of the same nature as what has been written by "Democrat" to the Silver State. This pungent correspond dent writes as follows : " Did Mr. G. W. Bryant, the head of the Melting and Refining Department, borrow a large amount of silver coin, #70G of which was obtained from Mr. Broadwater, to melt into bullion, in j order to make his account good at the annual settlement last July? Did he endeavor to induce Mr. Broadwater to sell a valuable silver brick for him soon after the settlement; and on his refusal to do so, did ho induce an attorney-at law to perform that service for him, in structing him to tell the purchaser that the bullion came from a friend of his (the attorney) at Aurora ? Did the said attorney sell the brick to Drexler, at Virginia City, and did the purchaser in quire of the Coiner of the Mint, Mr. Dague, whero such bullion came from ? Did the C’oinor answer, ‘ From the Car son Mint?’ Was Mr. Crawford advised of this tratisaotion by two or three Mint employes, and yet failed to take an}' action in the premises? Did Peter Spargo, a watchman, when transferred to Mr. Bryant > Department, ask Mr. Craw ford to ret n him as watchman, giving as a reason that he did not want to asso ciate with thieves, for fear of being thought as bad as they? And did Mr. Crawford peremptorily discharge him for intimating that he (Mr. Crawford) re tained known larccniats in a Government institution ?"_ TELEGRAPHIC. MRS. SCOVILLE SENDS HER BROTHER A B0E3UET FILLED WITH ARSENIC. Her Plans Frustrated by a Deputy Warden. CUITEAU ENRACED AT A FAN CIED INSULT. Mrs. Scoville Denies Putting Arsenic on the Bouquet. fSPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL. | Washington, July 13.—On the morn ing of the hanging of Gniteau the an nouncement was made in the dispatches that the prison officials had discovered what they believed to be traces of arsenic in a bouquet given the assassin by his sister. Mrs. Scoville. The bouquet was brought to the jail the day before the banging, and was, iu the absence of the Warden, carried to the cell by a guard. As soon as it was seen by Deputy Warden Russ he ordered its removal, and the jail physician, Dr. McWilliams, observing traces of some white substance on the llowers, carried it to the Medical Museum for analysis. It is supposed that Mrs. Scoville intended to tell her brother to eat some of the dowers, but if she bad such a purpose it was frustrated by the conduct uf Guiteau, who became so enraged at a fancied insult of the Warden that he raved and swore, and his sister was not allowed to enter his cell, or talk with him private ly. It is reported now that Dr. W. C. Tildeu, who is making an analysis of the bouquet at the Medical Museum, says the examination shows beyond question the presence of arsenic in large quantities. Mr*. Scoville Interviewed. Washington, July 13.—Mrs. Scoville was interviewed regarding the statement that the bouquet she sent Guiteau on his last day in jail was poisoned. She said, sarcastically, “ Of course they found poi son. It’s just like them. Besides, they hail to manufacture some story to excuse their brutality in excluding me from Charley’s cell.” She then denied point blank having put arsenic on the flowers. She said she did not want Guiteau to escape the gallows by such means, and that he would not have taken poison if he could. She expressed her intention of continuing the legal agitation until it is proved that an insane man was hauged. Damage l>y I.sg Si 1 u l ng. Little Rock, July 13.—A special from Texarkana says tho lightning struck Ohio’s new three story brick building last night. The walls fell on the Paragon Saloon, crushing it to atoms. About 30 lives were lost. Some of the bodies have already been taken out, and workmen are searching for the others. A fire has broken out under the ruins. Every man and water bucket in town was brought into use, but the tire finally broke out be- j yond all control, and burned two frame j buildings next to the Paragon, and now at midnight is burning inside the ruins. Two persons have been taken out. It is impossible to give the exact number in the ruins. Reports say between 20 and 30. The Striker*. New York. July 13.—The strike of freight handlers still continues. Chicago, July 13.—The strikers have compromised and work will begin at once. South Chicago, July 13.—All is quiet at Irondale this morning, and the men are making preparations to go to work on Monday. It is impossible to get the exact t* rms upon which the strike has been set tled. though all appear well satisfied with the result. New York, July 13.—The freight hand lers have received some accessions. Work is progressing slowly. Iii«pectii>sr Immigrant#. Springfield (111.;, July 13.—Laht week 0,2*10 immigrants were inspected in Indi ana, Illinois and Missouri, of whom 120 were not vaccinated. There is a great deal of dissatisfaction with the work of steam ship surgeons. Their reports are criti cised as often false, and their work is imperfect. Inspectors in this district, comprising the three States named, are using the utmost caution, and expect to prevent a recurrence of the smallpox epi demic next Winter. Split in n Republican Con volition. Minneapolis, July 13.—The Republican Convention of the Fifth Congressional District split. One party noninated C. Nelson, and th& other named W. Kindred. Death* from the Toy Pi»toI. Boston, July 13.—Six boys have died in this city and vicinity since the Fourth from lockjaw.induced by toy pistol wounds. The Orange anil Green liilteil. Boston, July 13.—The Orange and the Green united in a picnic yesterday. This was the first ail'air of the kind in the coun try. OVER THE WATER. Alexandria Evacuated—The C ity In Flames—The C«arrl*on Withdraw I'nder a I lag; of Truce—T!*e Bedou in* Fire and Pillage the Town— The Egyptian Army C-reatly lie moralized and In Full Retreat— I lie Released Convict*! i out III it Horrible Atroeltle* — Europeans null Christian* .tfaHsaered. [SPECIAL TO THE SENTINEL.] Off Alexandria, July 13—8:40 p. M.— Alexandria has been evacuated. The city is in flames. The telegraph ship Chiltern has beeu ordered to take up a position near neutral fleets. London, July 13.—In a telegram sent at 7:20 a. M., Admiral Seymour confirms the report of tho evacuation of Alexandria. The entire garrison withdrew under a flag of truce, leaving the Bedouins to tire and pillage the town. The Decoy has gone to Port Said to ascertain the state of affairs there. | Alexandria, July 13—9:48 a. m.—The Egyptian army is greatly demoralized and in full retreat toward the interior. The European quarter of the town, including the Exchange and telegraph office, is en tirely destroyed. The city was set on lire by released convicts, who committed hor rible atrocities. The telegraph ship Chil tern is crowded with survivors, who fought their way to the beach, whence the boats of the fleet removed them. They report i having passed a dreadful night, defending themselves desperately One hundred Europeans and other Christians in the Ottoman Hank and adjoining buildings were massacred. Hart of the fleet is now leaving for Port Said. London, July 13.—The Standard's cor respondent, on board the Invincible, tel egraphing at 8 o’clock this morning, says: The whole civil population and troops have withdrawn. The whole of Grand Square is burned. The Helicon, which went to discover the meaning of the last flag of truce last evening, could discover nobody on board the Egyptian vessel Mahrousa, or in the arsenal. The corre spondent accompanied an officer to the store in the steam pinnace. The purveyor of the fleet, who was one of the party, and well acquainted with the town, landed and proceeded a considerable distance. All was perfectly silent, but for the roar of the names. It is believed that Arabi I’asha has concentrated his forces beyond the city, to oppose British advance. The work of the ships is now over. Further action must bo ashore. Fully half of the town is burned. There will be a landing in force to investigate the condition of things, and if possiblo render aid. There will probably be three or four hours’ sus pension in telegraphing, in couscquence of Chiltern’s change of position. Alexandria, July 13, 8:20 a. m.—The Bedouins are leaving by thousands. The Europeans who fought their way down to the beach number 100. They report all the other Europeans and Christians, num bering some hundreds, massacred. The whereabouts of the Khedive is unknown. London. Julv 13.—A correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says he found many houses in Arabi’s quarters badly injured and partly burned by the bombardment. The incendiary lire in the center of the European quarter, at the tirno of tele graphing, covered an area of a mile square. A large part of the population had tied toward the canal. London, July 13.—The British^authori ties are chartering a number of vessels to day for the conveyance of munitions to Alexandria. Five thousand mules have been purchased in Spain. Alexandria, July 13. — Cbiltern has moved into the harbor. The tire in the city is steadily increasing. It is reported that Arabi Pasha is marching on Cairo. London, July 13.—A dispatch to tho Times confirms the statement that a body of marines and sailors are about to be landed. It also says that the bulk of the Egyptian army is at Rosetla, 40 miles northeast of Alexandria, and at Daman bower, 38 miles southeast of Alexandria. The soldiers joined in hooting the city before leaving it. Admiral Seymour tele graphs this morning that tho terms were the surrender of tho forts, as at first de manded. The use made of a tlag of truce by the Egyptians, as a cover of escape, is considered disgraceful. STATE JOTS. The Carson and Colorado track is six I teen miles from Benton, California. Reno is coming to the front for its ox tensive manufacture of good soaps of all sorts. In Carson they spread trout on their j free lunch tables—a dish which can hardly ! be had here for love or money. Governor Kinkead has received this re- ! quest from an Ohio man: “Send me a map of your State and also a good point to locate.” Mr. Hugh J. Mohan, the young Irish orator, formerly but temporarily of ours, thinks the British lion will have to drop Ireland in order to chew up Egypt. The Tribune says that Carson contains more and better hotels than any town of j its size in the country, and the Tribune is ; altogether correct. Such hotel facilities as Carson affords would be an immense | advantage to Eureka. The Gazette says: Alvaro Evans is being talked of in Reno for Governor on the Re publican ticket. He is well known every where and has large interests in cattle, land, mines and the Reno Water Works, and he would be a strong man. Henrietta Schwartz, now of Bodie, a female well known to most of the mem bers of the last Legislature, was knocked down in front of her millinery store on the Fourth of July, by a man whose face she mopped with the business end of a broom. Political. The Carson Appeal says that those who are opposed to the renomiuation of Gov ernor Kinkead claim that a reaction has set in against him which will render his candidacy much weaker when the Conven tion meets than it is now. They claim | that enough county delegations will come ! instructed against him and in favor of some local name to prevent a nomination on the first ballot, and that the opposing elements will unite upon some one after a few votes are taken and give him the nom ination. -♦- —■— r.

There is quite a law calendar, but no jury business will ho done. ■ NEW TO-DAY. Democratic CONVENTION -OF THE State of Nevada.
