Di Rudini Disgusted With Jingo's Diplomacy. Blame Charged With a Breach of Confidence. His Note of April 14th Treated With Silent Contempt by the Italian Government. Associated Press Dispatches. Rome, May 3.—The green book on the New Orleans lynching, comprises twenty-four dispatches, dated from March 14th to April 29th. It shows that the Italian government from the commencement, persevered in asking that criminal proceedings be taken against the lynchers, and that in demnity be paid the families of the vic tims. The expression "brought to jus tice" recurs in the official dispatches as well as in Baron Fava's private letters. The principal communications have al ready been published. After Blame's note of April 14th, the volume concludes'with a telegram from Marquis di Rudini to Marquis Imper- the text of which is as follows: "I have now before me a note ad dressed to you by Secretary Blame, April 14th. Its perusal produces a most painful impression upon me. I will not stop to lay stress upon the lack of con formity with diplomatic usages dis played" in making use, as Blame did not hesitate to do, of a portion of a telegram of mine communicated to him in strict confidence in order to get rid of the question clearly defined in our official documents which alone possess diplo matic value. Nor will I stop to point out the reference in this telegram of mine of March 24th, that the words 'punishment of guilty," in the brevity of telegraphic language, actually signified only that prosecution ought to oe commenced in order that the individuals recognized as theeuilty should notescape punishment. Far above all astute arguments, remains the fact that henceforward the federal government declares itself conscious of what we have constantly asked, and yet it does , not grant our legitimate de mands. "Blame is right when he makes the payment of indemnity to the families of the victims dependent upon proof of violation of the treaty, but we shrink from thinking that he considers that the fact of such violation still needs proof. Italian subjects acquitted by American juries were, massacred in the prison of the state, without' measures taken to defend them. What other proof does the federal government expect of viola tion of treaty, wherein constant protec tion and security of the subjects of the contracting parties is expressly stipu lated ? We have placed in evidence that we have hever asked anything else but the opening of regular proceedings. In regard to this Baron Fava's first note, dated March 15th, contained even the formula of a telegram addressed on the same day by Blame, under orders of President Harrison, to the governor of Louisiana. Now, however, in his note of April 14th, Blame is silent on the subject, which is for us the main rioint of controversy. We are under the sad necessity of concluding that what to every other government would appear to be the accomplishment of a strict civil duty, is impossible to the federal government. It is time to break off this bootless controversy. Public opinion, the great sovereign judge, will know how to indicate an equitable so lution of the problem. We have affirmed, and again affirm our firtt right. Let the federal government reflect upon its side if it is expedient to leave to the mercy of each state of the union, irre sponsible to foreign countries, the efficiency of treaties, pledging its, faith and honor to entire nations. "The present dispatch is addressed to you exclusively, not to the federal gov ernment. Your duties henceforward are solely restricted to dealing with current business." AMERICAN MEDICOS.

A CHILEAN WHIP STEAMS INTO SAN DIEOO. A Schooner Laden With Rifles for the In surgents Lying offCatalina—The Latest News Direct from Chile. San Diego, May 3.—The Chilean passenger steamer Etata, Captain Man sen, put into this port this afternoon, for provisions and possibly for coal. The Etata hails irom Iquique, and car ries, besides a full complement of mer chandise, a large number of passengers said to be for San Francisco. She is the first Chilean steamer and the largest passenger boat that ever entered this harbor. Captain Mansen was interviewed this evening in regard to the objects of land ing here, and gave as a reason that he was short of supplies and could go no further without replenishing the ship's stores. The fact that a schooner is now lying ofFCatalina island with a cargo of rifles for the Chilean insurgents, and await ing a transport to carry them down, has started the story that this vessel came after them; out the captain saya the steamer is simply a merchant man owned by Grace & Company, of New Yorkj and comes here by their orders. She intends to sail from here to San Francisco, and then to Vancouver, where she will go on the dry dock for repairs. After taking on coal at Na nimo she will return to Chile. Inquiry at the cußtom house disclosed the fact that the Etata is legally entered here, and that her clearance papers are regular and in good shape. CHILEAN ADVICES. Bloodshed, Fire and Bapine Accompany ing the Revolution. Callao, May 3. —It ia stated that the government forces at Calamel revolted, and that the officers fled towards Boli via. The English, steamer Puno arrived here this morning. When she left Val paraiso, March 21st, the rebnls occupied Antofagosta. It is presumed Colonel Camus with his forces marched towards Arica. Wherever these men may be, however, they are in a precarious posi tion, having no means of transportation and being without water and provisions. Valparaiso has been converted into a castle. Many of the guns captured in Callao during the last war, have been mounted. Three comp lies of the Quillota regi ment revolted at Quillota. The revolt was suppressed and the leaders shot. After the fight at-Pozo Almonte the victors became disorderly and sacked the town. Women and girls wereabußed and some murdered. Once fired with drink, rapine and rioting commenced among the men, and soon the torch was applied and three blocks were destroyed. Laborers from the nitrate fields took part in the work of destruction, and eagerly seized the rifles and cartridges of the soldiers who fell. The soldiers found themselves unable to exercise the least authority over the men. Would Have Hanged the Chinaman. Denver, May 3.—Late last night the police were summoned hastily to West Denver, where a mob was in the act of lynching a Chinaman named Wing Lee. The neighborhood had been unhealthy, lately v and an examination was made of cellars occupied by Celestials. The filth and stench were frightful, which so enraged the people that they pro cured a rope and would have hanged the Chinaman, had not the police patrol wagon put in a timely appearance.

The Affair at Fourraies Char acterized as a Massacre. Soldiers Charged With Unprovoked Slaughter of Citizens. Danger of France Being Isolated, Com uierclally. From the Other Con tinental Countries. Associated Press DisDatches. Paris, May 3.—Details of the labor trouble at Fourrnies have immensely heightened the political importance of the incident. The fact that six women, several children and eight men were killed on the streets, while twenty were seriously wounded, several fatally, gives the affair the character of a massacre. The soldiers were merely exposed to stone-throwing, but they replied with a succession of volleys from their rifles, inflicting frightful wounds on their vic tims. Houses exposed to the fire were riddled, and there is every sign that reckless and) wanton inhumanity was shown by the troops. POPULAR FEELING INTENSE. Local popular commotion is intense, and it finds response in growing excite ment in every working center. Four rnies tonight is practically in a state of siege. Cavalry patrol the streets, and are everywhere greeted with yells of reprehension from excited groups of men and women. The tension of feel ing may be judged from the fact that the military are hailed with cries of "Vive Prussia!" The funeral of the victims was fixed for today, but the enormous number of workmen arriving from other industrial centers caused the government to send for reinforcements and to order the post ponement of the funeral until tomorrow. The prefect today refused to receive a deputation asking for the removal of the regiment that fired upon the crowd. CONSTANS BITTERLY CENSURED. A section of the Left and the Socialist and Boulangist deputies will join in de manding, tomorrow, a vote of censure against Constans, minister of the in terior, as responsible for the slaughter. The majority of the Right and Left ap prove generally the measures of repres sion taken by Constans throughout tLe country, but will advocate an inquiry into the conduct of the troops at Fout mies. <• Parliamentary circles view the affair as shaking the positirJtr'of ther minister; Labor centers throughout France are profoundly moved, and public meetings here and at Marseilles, Lyons and else where are being organized to protest against the precipitate action of the authorities. THE RESPONSIBILITY ASSUMED. The commander at Fourmies, in his report to the minister of war on the May-day troubles, assumes full respon sibility for the action of the troops. He says he only ordered firing when the troops were in danger of being killed'or disarmed. FRANCE GREATLY ALARMED. The movement of the German and Austrian governments to isolate France, commercially, begins to alarm the French ministers more seriously. Dis patches from the French embassy at Vienna state that Germany has opened negotiations with Russia, with the view of arranging for Russian cooperation in the projected commercial union. Con cert with Russia, at first sight, appears impossible, but under the German- Austrian treaty, provision is made to treat other powers reciprocally. Both countries can offer Russia the benefits of a beneficial tariff. Switzerland and Servia will send delegates to the Vienna commercial conference. Russia has been invited, but has not yet replied. A significant semi-olficial note in to day's Fremdenblatt, of Vienna, pro claims the wide economic and political bearing of the German-Austrian treaty, and predicts that other powers will be forced to make similar arrangements. Even France, the note says, will find it, impossible to remain isolated, and will be compelledjto return to the treaty sys tem. FRENCH ART EXHIBIT AT CHICAGO. Ballou, a leading official of the expo sition of 1889, will probably be charged with the French art exhibit at Chicago, although Benjamin Constant will put the control of the exhibit in the hands of two artists, one to be appointed by the Champs Elysees society, and the other by the Champs de Mars society. Vieullefroy, secretary of the Champs Elysees society, favors a* collective ex hibit by the two societies. A SENSATIONAL MURDER TRIAL. The trial at Moulins of Madam Achet, a young widow,' for the murder of a notary named Lepine, has filled the court daily with a crowd of intensely interested spectators. There was a con flict of testimony in the case, and the prosecution failed, to prove that the wo man had accomplices, but it was shown, beyond doubt, that she murdered Le pine in order to rid herself of creditors. Madam Achet, while confessing the kill ing, said she had acted in self-defense, Lepine having attempted to assault her. The court imposed a sentence of twelve years at hard labor upon the prisoner, and ordered her to pay the sum of 2000 francs to the relatives of the victim. FOREIGN MISCELLANY. The Austro-German Treaty Signed— Barry Sullivan Dead. London, May 3.—The Austro-German treaty has been signed for a period of twelve years, beginning in February, 1892. Barry Sullivan, the tragedian, is dead. In 1857 Sullivan made a tour of the United States, and met with great suc cess throughout the country. MAY-DAY REVELERS DISCHARGED. Vienna, May 3.—Fifteen thousand weavers at Bielitz and 2000 employees at Pesth have been dismissed for being absent from work on May-day. RIOT ER BARCELONA. Barcelona, May 3.—Considerable dis order prevails here. Five patards were exploded during last night, causing great alarm and doing much damage. A conflict between police and strikers has just taken place. Pistol shots were exchanged. The ringleaders among the rioters were arrested. THK EIGHT-HOUK MOVEMENT. Peaceful Meetings ln Germany, Holland and Switzerland. London, May 3.—The principal towns in Germany, Holland and Switzerland were today the scenes of demonstrations of workingmen in favor of the eight hour movement. In Hamburg 30,000 persons, one-tenth of whom were the wives and sweethearts of workmen, pa raded through the suburb of Horn. After a short meeting in the public park, at which appropriate resolutions were adopted, the crowd dispersed and devoted the remainder of the day to music and dancing. No disorder is re ported anywhere. DISORDER IN BELGIUM. In the Belgian wine districts disorders still prevail, and many telephone wires have been cut and windows smashed. Meetings have been held at Liege, Ser aing and other places, to denounce the action of the Brussels Labor union, which sent delegates to various centers to delay or prevent strikes. At these meetings it was decided to disregard the advice of the union and commence a general strike tomorrow. A state of siege has been proclaimed in the vil lages around Liege. A MONSTER MEETING IN HYDE PARK. The attendance at the labor meeting at Hyde Park, today, is variously esti mated at from 200,000 to 300,000. The procession in connection with the meet ing included workers of all trades, and was miles long. John Burns, President Thomas, of the dockers' union, Benjamin Tellettes and Mr. Graham, Socialist members of parliament, were among the speakers. A resolution in favor of a compulsory labor day of eight hours waß moved on all the platforms. EN ROUTE TO OREGON. THE PRESIDENTIAL PARTY LEAVES SAN FRANCISCO. Sunday Devoted to Much-Needed Rest. The President Publishes a Card of n Thanks for Individual Acts of Courtesy. San Francisco, May 3. —President Harrison obtained much-needed rest to day. In the morning be attended the First Congregational church. The rest of the day he remained in his rooms. This evening he crossed over to Oak ■ land*, where his train was waiting, and shortly after midnight started for Port land, Oregon. At the close of his visit in this city, today, President Harrison furnished the following to the Associated Press for publication: a card. I desire for myself and for the ladies of our party to give expression of our thanks for many individual acts of courtesy which, but for the pressure upon our time, would have been spe cially acknowledged. The friends who have been so kind will not, I am sure, impute to us any lack of appreciation or intended neglect. The very excess of kindness has made any adequate,, and much more, any particular return', impossible. You will all believe that there has been no purposed neglect of any locality or indi vidual. We leave you with all good wishes for the state of California, and her people. [Signed.] Benjamin Harrison. GORMAN FOR PRESIDENT. Anna Dickinson Says He Is the Greatest Man ln the Land. New York, May 3.—Anna Dickinson delivered another intensely personal and ramb'ing address at Herman's thea ter, before a small audience, tonight. Her theme was: "Are you ready for your own incarceration in an insane asy lum?" "I am not here on my defense," she exclaimed ; "I am always on the agres sive. Ever since I was "a school girl, I have had something to say. I use words advisedly. I have never used them otherwise." She often shed tears while speaking about her incarceration in the Danville asylum. She said Arthur P. Gorman was the greatest man in the land, and nominated him lor president. IMPORTED LABOR. The Coke Region Being Filled With Ne groes and Italians. Pittsburg, May 3.-The expected sensation of the week is the promised importation of 7000 workmen, mostly negroes and Italians. The operators have little to say, except that they must run their plants somehow, while the citizens generally are indignant that skilled labor seems about to be driven from the field by this threatened invasion of by no means de sirable laborers. Some 600 evictions will be made this week, in order to make room for the new men coming into the regions tonight. Rev. Father Lamb ing, a power among the Catholics of the region, severely denounces the labor leaders and Socialists, and advises that the men return to work. Died After Great Suffering.
