How He Bored the Great Amer ican People. One Hundred and Forty Speeches Delivered During His Trip. The Presidential Train Pulls Into Wash ington After a Most Remarkable Journey. c Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, May 15.—The presiden tial train arrived this evening at 5:30, exactly on schedule time. Before the train reached the city, the president summoned to the observation car every person who had accompanied him on the trip, including all the railroad employees about the train, and made a short ad dress. He said he found that he had made 130 speeches since leaving Wash ington, on the 14th of April, and thought this was a good time to make the num ber a round 140. He referred to the unprecedented excellence and perfection of the railroad' service throughout tbe entire trip, and said the fact that they had been able to travel over ten thousand miles of terri tory in a splendidly equipped train, without accident or mishap, or one min ute's variation from the pre-arranged schedule, must always be regarded as a most remarkable achievement. He re turned thanks individually to every per son who had rendered service on the train, and gave all the employees a sub stantial token of his appreciation. The postmaster-general, secretary of agricul ture and other gentlemen of the party also remembered tbe employees. The arrival in Washington was un marked by any demonstration beyond the presence at the station of a small knot of officials and several hundred travellers. The president's grandchil dren were at the station, and his first greeting was to them. The president and family quickly went to the white house. THE LAST STOPS. , Pittsburg, May 15. —The presidential train passed through here early this morning, en route to Washington. But fifteen minutes waa spent here. There w as no demonstration. Altoona, Pa., May 15.—The special train bearing the presidential party ar rived at 0:50 this morning. The party stood on the rear platform and listened to cheers from a large crowd assembled. The president delivered a short address, and was followed by Secretary Rusk. 1 (aui<ism;liti, Pa., May 16. —From Al toon to a Harrisburg,the president's trip was devoid of special incident. On ar rival here, Postmaster-General Wana maker took leave of the party, and boarded the train for New York, whence his family sails for Europe tomorrow. When the train hove in sight cannon began booming and the great crowd gathered in the Pennsylvania railroad station, pressed forward with a mighty cheer. Governor Pattißon and other state officials boarded the train, and greeted President Harrison. The crowd was addressed briefly by the president and others, and at the conclusion of the speech-making tlie train left for Wash ington. THE MAGNITUDE OP HIS OFFENSE. In his address, tbe president said, when his stenographer had told him this morning that he had made 138 speeches since leaving Washington, he realized the magnitude of his offense against the American people, and. was in hopes he might be permitted to pass through Harrisburg without adding to it. "No one," said the president, "needs to tell you anything about Pennsylvania or its resources. Indeed my work was very much light ened, this journey, because I found that all the people, clear out to Puget sound, had already found out more about their country than I could possibly tell them. Our journey has been accompanied with the labor of travel, but out of it all I think I have gained a higher sense of the perfect unity of our people, and of their enduring and all-pervading patri otism." TREASURE TROVE. Baried Money of the Dormer Party Dls f covered Near Truckee. Truckee, Cal:, May 15. —There is ex citement in Truckee over the discovery of a portion of the treasure buried by the Dormer party in 1846 and '47. Mc- Glasan's history of the Dormer party, in speaking of the second relief party, Bays that when the party camped near the upper end of Dormer lake, Mrs. ■Graves had concealed several hundred dollars in auger holes, bored in cleats, which were nailed to the bottom of the wagon. Next morning, when the party struck camp, Mrs. Graves concealed her money behind a rock, and three days later she died of cold and starvation. The money which she hurried was never found until yes terday, when it was discovered by Ed ward Reynolds, a miner living in Sierra valley. Amos Lane, a liveryman, drove two men to the upper end of Dormer lake, and invited Reynolds to accom pany him. Reynolds left the wagon during the drive and climbed up the aide of a hill to look for quartz. His at tention was accidentally called to some dark looking pieces of money lying in plain sight on top of the ground. He picked up ten ancient looking dollars, and npon scratching slightly in the earth, uncovered a large quantity ot sil ver. Not knowing the nature or'the ex eent of the deposit, he prudently cov tred it up, and afterwards took Lane into his confidence, and they tlien vis ited the place together. They found silver scattered over quite a large surface, and in one place re covered enough coins to fill a hat. darkness coming on, they returned to town, and upon examination all the . money was found to be of ancient date, LOS ANGELES HERALD. and more or less blackenecLor stained. This morning they visitea the place again, with several other persons, and found more coins. A large tree had fallen where the money was originally buried, and the earth was thus torn up and tbe treasure exposed. Thousands of people have probably passed over the spot in the last few years. Lane and Reynolds will prosecute their search. They have erected a tent on the spot, and placed a guard on the ground. Now that tne find has become known, a number of other searching parties are being organized. There is no doubt felt here that the money is the same buried by the Dormer party. From present indications, the hills on the north side of Dormer lake will be covered with treasure-hunters tomor row. Reynolds and' Lane will have the money on exhibition at their tent, while continuing their part of the search. The money they found would delight the heart of a numismatist. There are old antiquated coins of all dates prior to 1845. and of tbe most ob solete and forgotten dates. Coins from France, Spain, Bolivia, the Argentine republic and a number of other foreign countries, besides a very rare collection of American pieces, are included in the treasure trove. As relics of tbe Dormer party, the find is very valuable, $100 having been offered for one of the pieces. The Truckee hotel-keeperoffered ten dollars a day to have the coins placed on exhibition at his hotel. Ar rangements will be made regarding the disposition of the money, until it is known bow much can be found. The Ticket Broker*' Row. Kansas City, May 16.—The defeat of Broker Mulford's plan to incorporate the American Ticket Brokers' associa tion, and place each member under bonds to observe the rules, may disrupt the association. The Mulford people say they have held the trump card until the last, Mulford claims that his con tract with the association has been vio lated, and he intends to resume opera tions under his articles of incorporation, and kill the association.

THE INSURGENT SHIP Now You See It and Now You Don't. A Variety of Rumors Concern ing the Itata. AH the News of a Vague and Unsat isfactory Character. A Pacific Mall Steamer Causes Some Excitement by Steaming; Up the Coast. Associated Press Dispatches. City of Mexico, May 15.—Acapulco advices state that the Chilean cruiser Esmeralda is still off that port, waiting to see if it is possible to obtain coal. Another strange steamer outside is sup posed to be the Itata. There is no American-steamer in Bight. Later —A telegram from Acapulco says no news of the Esmeralda has been received since she left that port, and and that no American ship has been seen. At, the war department it is stated no news has been received. A prominent official says that news of the Itata being off the coast of Central America, may be expected. earlier reports. A dispatch received late last night from Acapulco says: "The Chilean cruiser Esmeralda en tered this port yesterday and sailed again today. Several of her officers came ashore and used the wires, and made various inquiries regarding the action of the United States, showing that they were informed that the cruiser Charleston had been sent in pursuit of the Itata. It is believed that she steamed north to intercept the Itata and protect her should the Charleston attempt to capture her. The officers who came ashore were very reticent, but from one of the sailors it was learned that they expected to sight the Itata and act as her convoy down the coast. The Esmeralda has a numerous crew, and in appearance they are veterans and will fight." The above dispatch is confirmed at the navy department, but the officers are inclined to be reticent. A promi nent official said the cruiser was warned not to remain in port, as Mexico was not harboring insurgent vessels, and did not recognize any other government in Chile than that of Balmaceda. . NO NEWS AT WASHINGTON. Washington, May 15.—TJhe same re ply, "no news," Was made' by Actio*. Secretary Ramsey, this morning, to a question as to whether he had heard from the Charleston or Itata.

Washington, May 15.—A lengthy cable dispatch was received at the navy department, this afternoon, from Ad miral Brown, commanding the flagship San Francisco, now at some Chilean port.

San Diego, Cal., May s.—The Pacific Coast steamship company's steamer Newbern will arrive here from Mexican ports about midnight, or early tomor row morning. It is believed that the Newbern will bring some information in regard to the Charleston, Itata and Es meralda, and her arrival here is awaited anxiously. a mysterious vessel. San Diego, May 15. —The cruiser Charleston is reported, on apparently good authority, as having passed Point Loma, last evening, going north. Hueneme, Cal., May 15.—A large steamer, flying signals, stood in close to this place, this morning. As near as could be made out,she was a Pacific Mail steamer. After saluting, she stood off, bound north. Santa Barbara, Cal., May 15.—An unknown steamer was sighted off the coast, this morning, acting' in a peculiar manner. She was first observed at 7:45, then going up the channel. She rounded the upper end of Anacaysa island, and sailed along the island on the outside; then turned and stood out to sea. It is impossible to tell the size or rig of the steamer, as she was twenty miles away, and only the smoke couli be seen. is was the ban blab.

Watch was maintained over her to the last by the customs offi cials, that no arms or contraband goods be shipped. SOME BRITISH OPINION. London, May 15.—The Standard in an editorial this morning says: "We can only account for America's extraordinary zeal in pursuing the Chilean steamer Itata on the assumption that the gov ernment is delighted at having an op portunity in retrospectively justifying its Alabama contention, as against Eng land. It is doubtful, however, whether this ingenuous behavior can establish a new dictum in international law." MEXICAN EXCISES. The Republic's System of Taxation to Be Radically Revised. Washington, May 15.—The bureau of American republics has information from the City of Mexico regarding the revision of the Mexican system of taxa tion. An economic conference, com posed of delegates from each stale, has reached certain conclusions of great im portance, which will probably be adopt ed. It is proposed, first, that all in terior customs houses shall be abolished, and all imported merchandise, having complied with the customs laws at the port of entry, shall pass unimpeded to its destination; second, in place of the existing internal duties an indirect tax is to be substituted, to be collected from the consumer and to be uniform through out the republic, at a rate not to exceed eight per cent, ad valorem on all arti cles, except tobacco and spirits, the rile on which shall be determined from time to time. The revenues from this tax shall belong to the slates that collect them, aud those collected in the federal district and territories shall be paid into the federal treasury. The Michigan Forest Fires. Big Rapids, Mich., May 15. —From Manistee to Huron, on the lower penin sula, forest fires are still raging.

TOTTERING ROYALTY. THE PORTUGUESE CABINET MINIS TERS RESIGN. Lord Salisbury Tries to Hold Up the Feeble Monarchy by a Large Cession of African Territory—London Cablings. Lisbon, May 15. —The Portuguese cab inet has resigned. London, May 15.—[Copyrighted, 1891, by the New York Associated Press.1 — Though parliament has completed the discussion of all the original clauses of the Irish land bill, much remains to be done with the measure after the Whit suntide recess. The government has done nothing in regard to tbe educa tional bill, except to decide that it shall be introduced before the session closes. THE ANGLO-PORTUGUESE CONVENTION. The resigning of the Portuguese min try caused no surprise at the foreign office here. Differences over the policy of dealing with the financial troubles, rendered the formation of a new ministry desirable. The embassy received assurances that the change would not interfere with the presenting of the Anglo-Portuguese convention to the cortes. The Portu guese have every reason to be content with the convention, for Lord Salisbury, in order to strengthen the tottering mon archial interests, has conceded to Portu gal a solid blockof territory 50,000 square miles in araa, north of the Zambesi river, obtaining in return only a narrow strip of land rectifying the frontier of Manicaland. The terms of the conven tion are certain to be opposed in parlia ment. THE PARNELLITE DEFECTION. Reports of impending defections from the Parnellite party arise from a movement which originated outside of Irish members of the commons, the object of which was to heal factional feud. Several bishops made Gray the channel of communications between the leading Parnellites and McCarthyites. The overtures for reconciliation were taken by the McCarthyites as equiva lent to the abandonment of Parnell by his principal supporters. No definite proposal has reached either side. Gray places the blame for the balking of his efforts upon the untimely revelation of the overtures. WORLD'S FAIR PREPARATIONS RETARDED. Cable dispatches asserting that it has been decided to abandon the internat ional character of the Chicago exposi tion, though obviously malignant, oper ate in retarding the preparations of Eng lish exhibitors. The absence of an offi cial statement from Chicago, and the want of organized representation here, are keenly felt, and may result in lead ing industries ignoring the fair. A New Fast Fruit Line. San Francisco, May 15. —The Rio Grande, Santa Fe and Chicago, Milwau kee and St. Paul railroads, have effected a combination called the Pacific fast fruit line, for the purpose of handling California truit shipments, and will ship from all territory north of Bakersfield. The routa is from California to Ogden, thence over the Rio Grande- Western and the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe's Colorado Midland line, to Denver. From Denver to Kansas City, the haul is over the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe main line, and at Kansas City, the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul takes hold, conveying the fruit thence direct to market. Fruit from points south of B.tkersfield will go over the Santa Fe's Atlantic and Pacific route, as formerly. Demolished by Dynamite. Oak Grove, Mo., May 15. —The house of Daniel Morgan, a quiet and reputable citizen, three miles south, was demol ished by an explosion of dynamite last night. It is not known who perpetrated the outrage. Mrs. Morgan's collar bone was broken, and she was otherwise in jured. Morgan was badly injured. The children escaped unhurt.
