New York, May SO News was received here to-night by cable from the Haitian le gation at Paris that a revolution hadhroken out at Tort au Prince. The cable message recei ed at the Legation added that a state of siege had been proclaimed at Port au Prince. A French iron-clad- has already been dispatched to the scene of the new t -ouble and the outlook is that all the hor rors of the recent black rebellion are to be repeated. Admiral Gherardi, in command of the' Philadelphia, has recently returned from Port au Prince. He said last night that he doubted the truth of the Pari? dispatch, but tliat he should not be surprised if it proved to be true. "It's as sure to come as the sun is to rise and set," he said. "It would puzzle four acute historians to keep a clear record and render a clear account of the wars and polit ical'revolutions in Haiti. In the last two or three difficulties down there this Govern ment has had a lively interest because of their bearing on the probability of our get ting the Mole for a coaling station." Hippolyte Promised Us the Mole. In the last revolution, when legitime had Hippolyte surrounded and cornered from the north, Hippolyte sent as an agent to this country August Elle. At that time iegi time had declared a blockade of Northern ports. England, France and Germany had recognized the blockade, -but the United States had not taken a stand on either side. Hi! Government, ot course, could not make a treatywith Hippolyte, as his was-neither n'd&juraiior S'de facto Government. But it wanted Mole St, Nicholas. There was an arrangement arrived at with Elie for Hippolyte. Hippolyte prom ised that if the United States wouldn't rec ognize Iiegitime's blockade, he, Hippolyte, on coming into power, as this1 attitude on the .part of this Government would surely enable him to do. would pive us Mole St. Nicholas for a coaling station. There was a written agreement on Hippolyte's part to do that. That was just at the close of the Cleveland administration. Enabled Hlppolyto.to Triumph. Secretary "Whitney of the" Navy sent Admiral Gherardi to Haiti. There were no instructions given to the Admiral as to what he should do when he reached Port au Prince, but he telegraphed back there was no blockade. This refusal to recognize the paper blockade broke the backbone of Ie gitime's Government, as it enabled Hippo lyte t o get American trading ships into his ports with supplies. The result of it all was that Hippolyte triumphed, banished Iicgitime, and then repudiated his promise to give us a coaling station. The United States legation, Fred Douglass, Minister, took no steps to resent this breach of faith on Hippolyte's pait, and Haitians believed that this Government would not interfere with them, and it has not inter fered. "When Iiegitime was. "banished by Thelemaque in 1888, "said Admiral Gherardi to-Dight, "there was a man named Manigat banished with him. Iegitime and Manigat were ostensibly friends, but in reality they were political rivals. "When Thelemaque wa shot and the two exiles returned, legitime proved the stronger and obtained the power. Manlpat Hud a Hard Time. "Then Manigat went over to Hippolyte and helped him in the revolution against Legitime. After the success of that revo lution aud the second banishment of Legi time, Hippolyte, jealous of Manigat, ban ished him also Manigat went to Jamaica, and has been plotting cvtr since for the overthrow of Hippolyte. "There are two political partis in Haiti Nationali-ts a1io believe in the rule of black men only, and Liberals wh would allow the nulatto to take part in the Goternmcnt Hippolyte was a -I Liberal; Manigat is a Nationalist. Legitime was simply a Legitimist. Hip polyte, never very strong or firmly es tablished, has succeded in breaking all his pledges and keeping faith with nobody, so J tnat ms loiiowinR nas rauiuiy laiicn on and cone over to Manigat' "When Admiral Gherardi left Port au Prince, about two weeks aco. that was the state of affairs. Legitime, the Admiral says, is a "dead cock in the pit. " Just after Admiral Gherardi reached here he heard that an attempt had been made by Manigat 's people to kidnap Hippolytein hispalaeeand carry him 11. The plot was discovered through the treachery of one of Manigat's men and frustrated. Could Seize the Mole. The Admiral said to-night he hoped the etery of a revolution was true, and that this Government would take advantage of it to secure the coaling place, which is such a necessity to us. We've got to hate it," said he. ""Our ships are useless without it. "We might just as -well blow them all out of the water and be done iwth it. The Nicholas Mole is nothing but a barren strip of rock, anyway, and isn't worth anything for anything ch-e than as a coalintr station. I'd like to go down there and take it." Admiral Gherardi thought that if a revo lution had really broken out, headed by Manigat, this Government could deliber- ately take the Mole St. Nicholas for a coal ing station on account of promises made and services rendered, and that if such a course were persued, when Manigat wins, jas seenis likely if he is heading the revolution, he would satisfiy the action of this government.

Judging from an interview Vith htm disseminated by the press, we expect from him neither the exercise of unbiased judgment nor an impartial report. His pre judice displayed toward Wisconsin, a State settled and made prosperous by Germans, is know-nothlngism, pure and simple. Tho character of German immigration has. dui lng all the recent discussion, not been im peached. While Mr. Grosvenor judges of the value of an American citizen hy his tongue, we claim it should be gauged by the individual character, thrift, Intelligence and love of law and liberty.

During the time that Postmaster General "Wanamaker was at the President's reception 'this morn-' ing in Independence Hall "he had a few minutes to, spare to chat about the Keystone Bank and the City Treasury exposures. "The disclosures that have occurred since the failure of the bank were to me a com plete surprise," said the Postmaster Gen eral. "I always had the greatest confidence in the .bank and Mr. Marsh, and would never have Believed that such a state of aflairs could have existed there. The bank was a great conven ience to us. It was right opposite our store and we did a great defcl of business there. .Our daily deposits were always quite large. Of course, I have had no personal acquaintance with nor information about the bank for the past two years, being away from the city all that time, but I had the same confidence in it as when I was here. L heard they were very ac commodating to us in many ways. For instance, on a holiday like this they would have clerks on hand after 3 o'clock to receive our deposit, which we never cared to leave in the store over night They also handled all our country checks for us with out extra compensation, whioh was very kind, as most of the banks ask something for that" "Marsh's flight must havesurprisecLyou,. too?" "Yes, it did. It would have been better if he had stayed here and told everything he knew. He might have thrown a great deal, of light on the whole affair, and he could not have fared much worse. I hope he will be brought back,",, "Mr. Bardsley's attitude yesterday iooks as if he inten ded to shoulder the whole responsibility for his wrone doings," Mr: "Wanamaker was told. "I think he makes a very great mistake," was Ins reply. "He should tell everything he knows and let everybody who has had anything whatever to do with his aflairs be fully known and justly punished. There has been some intimation that he was in Beading, butI do not believe that "Were that so I would surely have known it The symdicate that handled Beading is pretty well known, but I am satisfied Mr. Baidsley had nothing what ever to do with it This whole matter should have all the light possible thrown on it The sky would be clear afterward.

Archbishop Ireland Pays 'His Ke Bpectsio Lucerne Petitioners. AMERICA IS TOR AMERICANS. (TueMoYement Originated ia German Antag onism to the Irish. v. J , BETTEE-MDn) THEIR OWN aFFAIES St. Paul, May 30. The recent memorial of Catholic emigration societies to the Pope, requesting the-following of district and na tional lines in the work among immigrants In America, has attracted great attention. Probably the only man in the Northwest who is capable of giving an inside view of the recent Catholic movement in Europe is Archbishop Ireland. A reporter to-day called upon the Archbishop and asked for a statement regarding the matter. After in dorsing the truth of the recent dispatches from Borne, the Archbishop said: , So far as Mr. Cahensly,.the bearer of tho Lucerne petitions to the Vatican, and his friends and co-laborers are concerned, they have a well defined object in view, and they mean to work for it with might and main. It is to harness tho church in America into the service of recently arrived immigrants "from Germany, other Catholic in terests in tho country being ap parently looked upon as quite second ary. Some of their demands are quite admissible in themselves, although it is no business of people in Luzerne to make them, such as German parishes and German schools for German-speaking Catholics. In addition, however, to these, they desire German priests for all parishes inwhiph" therenre German Catholics mingled with others. GermanJBIshops charged with the exclusive care of Germans, can no more be tolerated than a number of foreign Bishops in the regular Episcopal Bees. Afraid of Irish Supremacy. Their demands are based on the supposi tion that the bishops and priests of America, are Irish and neglect the Germans. Mr. Cahensly calls for a reversal ot what he imagines to be tho caso, and by clear impli cation asks that the Irish bo put irt charge of German bishops and priests. We have to note here the actual or assumed ignorance of Mr. Cahensly as to the condition of German-speaking Catholics in America, In as serting that they are neglected he does most positive injustice to the bishops of the coun try, whoso constant effort has teon and is to provide for all Catholics of foreign tongues priests of their nationality. There is a singular malice, too, in his at tempt to represent the Catholic Churoh in America as Irish. It were easier for him to succeed in a dispute between Irlsliand Ger mans than in one between Americans and Germans. As a matter of fact, the Bishops born in Ireland are few in the American 'hierarchy, and those few have spent HnAriv mi cneir lives in .o.mt3i;ii;Br and jure thoroughly versed in its. institutions. The Bishops of America are in heart and sotfl. Americans. They have no more idea of making the Church Irish than they have of allowing it to be made German. U Is None of Their Business. The strangest feature in this whola Lu cerne movement is the impudence of the men in undertaking to meddle, under any pretext, in the Catholio affairs of America. This is simply unpardonable. We acknowl edge the Pope as our chieftaift in spiritual matters, and we are glad to receive direction from him; but men in Germany or Switzer land or Ireland must mind their own busi ness and be still as to ours. Nor is this the' most irritating fact in this movement. The inspiration of tho work In Europe comes, the dispatch tells us, from a clique in America. Eveu. If the dispatches had been silent on thl nutter, we would have known tnat this is; tne trutn. jror part of certain lorelgn-bom .Catholics the control of Catholic matters in America. Phles in the West. French Canadians in the .East, Germans West and East, have been at work in tnis direction, uermans sent in 1886 a representative to Itomo to obtain pro German legislation. They have since formed societies, notably the Deutsch-Amerikanls-cher Priester Yerejn, for this same pur pose. He Places the Responsibility. I am quite sure l am right when I bring home tothis'vorein the whole prompting of the Lucerne proceedings. The foreign move ment in America is.it must be well under stood, confined to a comparatively small. numoor. xne great massoi uerman-speaic-ing Catholics, laymen and priests, are totally opposed to all plans and intrigues to retain foreign ascendancy, and are most heartily in sympathy with everything that is Ameri can. We have Catholics from all countries of Europe, yet they all work together with signal unanimity, and are all united in patriotism as Americans, as they are in faith as Catholics. The promoters of German forelgntsm in America are certain journal ists, whose trade is gone if the German languages loses Its hold, and certain priests who are coining to America never learn much English nnd scarcely know that there Js in America a country outside the Gorman village or quarter sur rounding their parsonage. Of course, where these men are allowed to work, they have a following who, misguided andmlslcd, clamor against a fancied inferiority and a fancied persecution. ' Itomo "Will Not Listen. There is not the slightest possibility that any result will come from this Lucerne cpn Xerende, except It be this result, to lead to the utter extinction of all foreign animus among us. ine iiisnops or America are fullv able -to ward off all foreign invasions and to. maintain the Church on thorough American lines. If they did not themselves have the courage and the common sense to do it, the Cath olic people, whatever their origin, would compel tnem to do their duty. Nor will the authorities in Borne listen for a moment to Cahensly or ms menus, xne policy or Home is to trust the hierarchy of each country and to enoourage in each country Catholicity to the manor bi ne manor oorn. After sneakinc of foreign domination in civil affairs as an excuse for this petition, the Archbishop continued: wfienwewillbe more American in civil and political matters, there will be fewer netitions from Vereins in. America and fiom conferences in Lucerne for the foreignizing- oi uatnoiics in America. NO FOREIGN BISHOPS' WANTED, The Catholics of America Not Likely to Take Kindly to M. Cahe isly's Flan."

SENATOR.QUAT AN ACUTE PARTICIPANT tSTXCULTELEOSAl- TO TOTEISPATCH.1 "Washington, May 30.--.-The latest piece of political gossip in "Washington is to the "effect that the friends of Senator Don Cameron arejlaying the wires, preparatory to the presentation of his name to the next Bepublican convention as the Presidental candidate of Pennsylvania. A conference of Pennsylvania politicians was held at the residence of Senator Cam eron, in this city, iwo weeks ago, at which the Bepublican situation was thoroughly discussed, and as a result It was decided, so a Pennsylvanian who at tended the conference says, that the Pennsyl vania delegation to the next national convention should go instructed for Don Cameron. There were present some of the most adroit politicians of Pennsylvania, including Senator Quay, State Senators George)Handy Smith and Grady, Collector Dave Martin, of Philadelphia, State Chair-, man Andrews and one or two others who comprise the Pennsylvania Bepublican managers. The sentiment of the-conference was en tirely against Harrison, and at first blush it would seem that Cameron's candidacy is merely a blind to keep the votes of the Pennsylvania delegates oat of Harrison's reach and, imprison them until Senator Quay sees which way the cat is going to jump. This would give the Pennsylvania politicians a chance to hedge, in case their scheme miscarried,.by asserting that Cam eron's candidacy was purely a compliment ary proceeding. ' State Senator Smith is qnoted as author-' ity fpr the statement that Such is not the case and that Cameron is to be "abona fide candidate. It is argued that his opposition and vote against the force- bill will make him the logical candidate of the opposition to radicalism, as represented by Harrison, and that his position in favor of free coin age will give him a strength in the South and "West not possessed by any ether Be publican in the field. State Senator Smith says that Cameron can easily secure the Pennsylvania delegation, as both the Quay and the Magee factions, which are at swords'-points on other questions, would be a unit for him. "While there were noMageeites at the meeting, it is said that C. L. Magee was aware that such a conference was held, and that he was heartily in sympathy with it It is well known that Cameron and Magee 4 are warm personal mends, and that tnrs e.ivi(1 C.nmprni from defeat for re-election 'last January. Senator Cameron is now at 'his country residence in Pennsylvania, where he will remain until the return of Senator Quay, when another conference will te held by the Bepublican leaders, either in Philadelphia or "Washington.

THB-YISIBLE ASSETS OP HIS COMPAN SPICTAI, -TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH, New Yobk, May 30. The visible asset of the American Export and Trading Com pany, the creature of the late Edward S, Goff, are: One roll-top desk, $35; two safes, empty and locked, combination lock, say $200; one box corn or tobacco sickles, list price, ?2 23; one box of circulars, announc-t ing the astounding success of the company, eight pounds, at cent a pound, 2 cents; total, $287 27. These things were left behind by Treasurer "Von Deventer when he cleared out the company's office on Bowling Green an hour or so after President Goflfdied on Thursday. The 540,000 check from Ecuador, which was to have made Mr. Goff a million aire in two months and the American Ex port and Trading Company one of the larg est mercantile concerns in the world, is said to have arrived to-day. It will not be cashed, at least not for the benefit of tho defunct Mr. Goff or his defunct company. One employe of the company and The Dispatch correspondent visited the office at Bowling Green to-day. The janitor opened the doors. The roll-top desk stood in the hall; the sickles.were strewn about the floor-one safe was in a front room, face to the wall; the other stood askew in the old main office. The-circulars were in a box. The floors wem bare, except for the sickles. Millions In the Scheme. The employe jammed his hands down into his Dockets and soliloquized thus: "What a scheme it was. There was millions in it." Seizing the correspondent by the shoulder, he exclaimed: "Do you know that nothing could have stopped Goff from being a mill ionaire if he had only lived four weeks longer; South America and. Mexico would have been his. Conces- sions, concessions he had 'em by the thousand. '"The most valuable concession, that were ever made to mortal man. And now he's dead, and there's no one to take his place and no one to take his concessions. A .million and a half acres of land in Mexico and $400 a family for populating it; the, whole trade of Ecuador and the prospect or the whole trade of every other State 'm South America. I tell you, millions per--ished with that man, millions." The story of remarkable Mr. Goff and his more remarkable schemes was told at great length, but thtre are pages yet to tell. The details of his last grand scheme, which is said.to have included the wholesale bribery of South American officials, are known to. one or two of his most intimate friends, and, may be made public in a little while. The reporter talked with one of these men to day. Goff Was Honest "Goff was honest," the man said, "ho never took a dollar that didn't belong to him, and he was destined to be tfie wealthiest man in America and that without a cent to start on. Now he had a concession of 1,500009 acres of land in the State of Chiapa, Mexico. I won't tell in detail how he got it, but it was covered by Senor "Varela, of the State of Oajaca, which is tho same .State that President Diaz, cornea from, and by Jose " 3Iorri, a-capitalbt. Varela ij.ajnember of the Mexican Congre'ss. "WSen this conces sion was made the Mexican Government guaranteed to give the American Export and Trading Company 5100 for every family of settlers that was sent by it to the Chiapa grant." "Why should the Government make such an offer?" was asked. "To populate the country, of course," re plied Mr. Golfs friend, smiling, and added: 'Of course there was no money in it fur any body down there. It was tw) years ago that the grant and the offer were made. I tell ' you, sir, the American Export and Trading Company has paid all its expenses since then ana money that came from Mexico." "How many families did it send down?" "Not a family." "How could the company getanymoney, then?" . Goff Could Tell It AH. "Ah, well, Mr. Goff could tell you that. It's enough for me to say "that Mexican money kept the company." 'How much money came from Mexico?" ' 1 can't say exactly,but it cost ?3,500 rent a year for the company's office. Salaries were high, and $7,500 a year was spent for ad vertising one branch of the business alone, while more was spent for advertising other branches. The Ecuador deal was the Diggest ever made with any country, and that was only the beginning of the work. As has been said, the war was the only thing that prevented a deal .with Chile. Brazil was on the string too. "Think of that Brazil with immense trade, and I am certain Goff would have captured it. It won't be possible to say whether the company is really dead until the stockhold ers meet. One thing is certain, Mr. Goff has opened a wide field for other men. Men with capital will work on his idea, and it is about certain that the South American tract will be controlled by American companies. Goff has shown how it can be done." Where the Furniture Went. About the way the furniture of the Ex port and Trading Company disappeared the man said that it was taken by the Treasurer, Van Deventer, without authority. -Two stockholders had notified Mr. Van Deven ter, "be said, that if any of it was soli he would be held personally responsible. .Mr. Golf's ffmeral will take placeto-mor row afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at his home. He had a fear that he would be buried alive. His body has bqen kept so long, in obedience to his last request. There have been many callers at his house since Thursday. Among them have been Consul General Juan N. Navarro, of Mexico; y Consul" General Irederico A. Bcelan, of' Chile: Consul General Jacob Baiz, of Hon duras and Guatemala; "W. E. Curtis.
