able to make an independent purchase wish
nevertheless to secure an interest in some in

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 6, 1891.
FOR THE INSURGENTS.
A CHILEAN STEAMER BUYING SUP-
PLIES AT SAN DIEGO.
Large Quantities of Provisions Purchased.
She is to Take the Arms From the Rob
ert and Minnie—Her Crew Non-Com
mittal.
The San Diego Union of yesterday
contains the following in reference to
the Chilean steamer at that port: •
Yesterday's developments in regard to
the Chilean steamer Itata, which is now
in this harbor, all pointed to the conclu
sion that she came here for supplies and
ammunition foi the Chilean insurgents,
and that when she haa accomplished her
object—tonight or tomorrow—she will
return again tolquique without proceed
ing any further northward. Yesterday
at noon a dispatch was received in this
city that the schooner Robert and Min
nie, which had been lying off the out
ward side of Catalina island with a caigo
of powder, Remington rifles and other
munitions of war, awaiting a transport
from the south to relieve her of her
load, had weighed anchor and set sail
for this port, and that she was expected
to arrive here some time during the
night.
The officers of the Itata contracted for
800 tons of coal with the Spreckels Broth
ers Commercial company yesterday, and
a barge was sent alongside with a portion
of this to transfer it to the steamer, but
it was found that the Itata was making
water so rapidly that it would be impos
sible to put the coal aboard, and "the
barge was towed ashore again till she
could be pumped out. A large lot of
supplies were also contracted for, and a
portion of these were loaded on the
barges and put aboard the steamer last
night. Forty head of cattle was one
item on the list of provisions, and these
were loaded on the ferryboat Coronado
and taken out to the steamer at mid
night. The quantity of provisions and
stock bought by the officers of the Itata
would seem to be altogether too large for
the use of the ship's crew merely, and
adds weight to the supposition that they
are intended for the insurgents.
A portion of these supplies were
marked "Esmeralda" at the warehouse
before they went out to the steamer.
Esmeralda is the name of one of the
first men-of-war in the Chilean navy,
and is one of the boats in the possession
of the insurgents. This also points to
the same conclusion.
There seems to be a great deal of ig
norance existing among the crew of the
Itata as to her future movements. A
Union reporter went aboard the steamer
yesterday and questioned a number of
the men in regard to her mission. No
one seemed to know where she would
make for next or what she came into
this poit for. There was nothing aboard
the ship of a warlike character and she
carries no cargo whatever. The crew of
the Itata numbers ninety men all told,
most of whom are Chileans. The engi
neers, however, are English, the steam
er is of English make and is owned by
an English company, though sailing
under the Chilean flag.
SANTA MONICA.
The board of trustees held their regu
lar weekly meeting Monday evening,
when the reports of the various officials
were received; that of the city treasurer
showing a Balance on hand of $2183.06
to the city's credit. A large number of
bills were ordered paid. „«ujL
A petition was received from Messrs.
Cowley & Baker, the new proprietors of
the Arcadia, in which they stated that
they would build a handsome pavilion
on the beach portion of their grounds,in
which t hey intended to run a restaurant
and grill to accommodate the many visi
tors to the beach. That it would become
necessary to furnish them at their meals
with wine, liquors, etc., and requested
that they be allowed to do so under the
license they intend to take out for the
regular hotel bar. They also stated that
it would be lighted with electric lights
and have a place for orchestral music,
thus making it the ideal resort of the
multitude. Robert Eckert who was
present al6o stated that the firm of
which he was a member, also claimed
the right of having two bars on their en
closure, it only being one lot. The prop
osition was thoroughly debated, and the
final outcome was that the board came
to the conclusion that it was not a mat
ter for the board to determine, but for
the courts.

Scene—A grand dinner party at Consul
Schinkle's. Fraulein Helene, from Berlin,
who is staying at the consul's, enjoyed her
self famously, for her neighbor at the table
was Baron Yon Aldersklaa, a gentleman
of refined manners and brilliant wit.
"Then you are opposed to the agitation
for the emancipation of women?"
"At least I should like it to take some
other form than that contemplated by its
present leaders, mem Fraulein."
"How do you mean.JHerr Baron?"
Here the baron suddenly turned away
and made no reply. Helene repeated her
question, aud anxiously waited for an an
swer, which did not come, for the baron
now seemed entirely oblivions of ber pres
ence. Deeply hurt, the young lady rose
and left the table. Mrs. Schinkle hastened
after her.
"What is tbe matter, child?" Iv a voice
half stifled with sobs Helene related to the
hostess what had passed, and ended by
saying:
"Can I have offeuded him?"
"Oh! dear no!" said Mrs. Schinkle, laugh
ing heartily. "This baron was obtained
from an agency for the hire of dinner
guests, and as we thought that dinner
would be over by 7 we only engaged him
till that time—the clock just struck when

Some young ladies were accosted dur

agree, and hong over the pool searching
for the promised faces, but could lind
nothing hut the reflection of their own.
"Surely you are mistaken, woman," ex
claimed one of tlitfm, "for we see nothing,
