She Passed * Acapulco Ere the Charleston Got There. The Esmeralda Still Waiting at Aca pnlco for Coal. A Report' Circulated That She Will Take It by Force If Unable to Get It Otherwise. Associated. Press Dispatches. City of Mexico, May 19.—Dispatches from the Pacific coaat seem to indicate that the Itata is already far out of the reach of the Charleston. From these dispatches it would alao appear that the Itafa passed outside of Acapulco on Fri day laat, and the Charleston reached the port Saturday. The Eameralda ia still at Acapulco, awaiting coal which ia said to have been ordered from the United States. a dispatch from admiral brown. Washington, May 19. — Secretary Tracy said tonight the Charleston could seize the Itata in Chilean waters, but declined to say whether she would or not. No more news is expected from the Charleston before she reaches Pan ama. Not a word of news of the Charleston or the Itata waa received at the navy department today. A cablegram in cipher came from Admiral Brown, aboard the San Francisco, now at Iqui que, Chile, but Secretary Tracy declined to-say what news it contained. A MATTER THAT NEEDS EXPLANATION. New Yobk, May 19.—A Washington special aaya: When the Omaha turned up at San Diego the other day, juat after the Itata had goue to sea, a long cipher dispatch was sent her. The department officials were much surprised when they received an answer saying the dispatch could not be read, as there was no cipher code aboard the ship. The Omaha ia on her way home from Asiatic station, and Ad miral Belknap, the commandant of that Station, and Captain Cromwell, the commander of the ship,will probably be called upon to explain why it was that the Omaha was at aea without a copy of the code, which ia one of the essential features of a ship's outfit. the Esmeralda's straits fob coal. New Yobk, May 19.—A special to the Mail and Express from Acapulco says: It seems now certain that the Esmer alda must have recourse to aome des perate means to secure coal, for coal she must have if she is to get back to Chile. It was announced today that the Pacific Mail Steamship company ordered its ' agent here not to sell the Esmeralda any coal, under any circumatancea. This order waa communicated to the commander of tbe Eameralda, and it is now thought extremely probable that the Chilean will take coal by force. This is the more probable as it is almost Certain that the Esmeralda's captain is now in command of the Itata, having boarded her when the two ves sels were off this port on Friday night. Should the acting captain of the Eamer alda decide to take coal by force, there is absolutely nothing to prevent him from hauling his vessel alongside the coal bunkers and taking what she wants, for the guns of the forts are worthless, and the Esmeralda could, if molested, lay Acapulco in ruins in half an hour. The Mexican authoritiea will hardly be likely to offer any opposition to a powerful ship like the Esmeralda, and thus bring a bombardment upon the town. There is intense excitement. coal secretly obtained. City of Mexico, May 19. —A dispatch irom Aeapulco says: It is believed the Esmeralda has secretly loaded some coal, and waa to receive more today out side the harbor. the insubgent's bank account. San Fbancisco, May 19. —A report ia current here in connection with the re cent arrest of Senator Trumbull, the alleged agent of the Chilean insurgents, to the effect that for aome time past $250,000 has been on deposit at the Bank of British North America, in this city, to the credit of the insurgents and their agents. The money ia said to have been sent from Chile, and it is also said that lettera are now in the posses sion of the government authorities .which show that many of the wealthy and influential citizens of Chile have contributed this and other large sums of money for the overthrow of the Balma ceda government. ( United States District Attorney Garter said today that the tact of there being a large sum of money on deposit here to the credit of Senator Trumbull, will be an important circumstance in determin ing the guilt of the accused. Considerable speculation is indulged in here aa to the outcome of the attempt of the United States, grand jury at Los Angelea to secure dispatchea from the Weßtern Union and Postal telegraph companies relative to Chilean affairs. The superintendents of the two companies were summoned on Monday to produce theae dispatchea, and it is said they have both refuaed to do so. The examination of Trumbull has been fixed for June Ist.

Belgrade, May 19.—The palace of ex- Queen Natalie, who was rescued by studenta yesterday from the custody of the prefect, who waa ordered to expel her from Servia, ia still protected by an organized body of studenta and citizens. Last night a force of gendarmea attacked the cordon of studenta and citizens which waa drawn around the queen'a Salace, and a severe struggle followed, [any civilians and gendarmea were severely injured during the fight, and the gendarmea were finally repulaed. After a consultation of the ministers LOS ANGELES HERALD and regents this morning, it was decided to expel Natalie from Servia, and in structions to that effect were given to the police. A Btrong force of gen darmes made an attack upon the queen's palace aud succeeded in breaking through the cordon of students and citizens guarding Natalie. After a sharp fight the gendarmes suc ceeded in entering the palace. The gen darmes then forced their way to Natalie's bedroom and summoned her to arise, aa she muat instantly leave Servian terri tory. The queen calmly replied that she would yield to force, and requeated the atudents who so gallantly defended her to make no further reaiatance. The queen was then allowed to dress herself, and after bidding adieu to the leaders of her defenders, during which a moat touching acene waß witneaaed, ahe waa escorted to her private carriage which was waiting at the palace entrance, and wag hastily driven to the railroad sta tion, followed by the cheers of students and citizens of Belgrade, whoae enthuaiaam had to be kept within bounds by the display of an overwhelm ing force of troops. At the station a apecial train waa in waiting, and the queen was immediately conveyed oh board. No sooner waa the queen and her baggage on board, than the train left the depot for the Hungarian frontier. The populace ia enraged againat the miniater of war, Colonel Miltches, who is understood to be the most active of the ministers in instating that Natalie Bhould be expelled. Popular feeling against him ia so great that it is proba ble he will be compelled to tender hia resignation. In the fight which took place laat night, between the gendarmea who at tacked the students and citizens defend ing the queen's palace, one man was killed and fifty more or lesa aeverely wounded. Vienna, May 19.—1t ia stated here that ex-Queen Natalie, of Servia, ia en route to the palace of Sanai, at Buchar est, the capital of Hon mania; a fact which gives rise to the rumor that im portant political events may follow her expulsion from Servia. VOTED TO REMAIN OUT. MINERS IN THE COKE REGION WILL PROLONG THE STRIKE. Several More Riots at Soottdale—The Grand Rapids Street Car Strike Cul minates in Riot—Other Labor Troubles. Pittsburg, May 19.—A dispatch from Scottdale says: The miners of the re gion demonstrated their intention to re main out, in more than one way, today. Every effort was made by the operators to force the men in convention to vote to return to work, but the work of the leaders in opposition was too powerful, and they toted to remain out to a man. Every district in the region was represented. Several riots occurred this even ing, one striker being shot and slightly wounded. One of the se ceders from the strikers' ranks, who had been working, was hoofed by a crowd of strikers on the street and was driven into the Scottdale house by a mob of one thousand men, that would not disperse until a fire hose was turned on them. Shortly after two deputies from Valley Works tried to assert their authority oyer the maddened mob. A rush was made for the deputies, one of whom fired, wounding a strik er. The deputies were trampled under foot in a moment, but were picked up and carried away by the town police, while the mob fled before another as sault from the fire department. Soon another rush was made; the dep uties were taken from the police and pounded and kicked in a horrible man ner. Under the advice of the leaders the strikers finally let them go. A STREET CAR RIOT. Grand Rapids, Mich., May 19.—The street-car strike culminated tonight in three serious riots, in which seven men were hurt seriously, and one, James E. Marshal, a conductor on the South Division street line, fatally injured. Most of the tioting occurred at the corner of Tenth avenue and South Division street, where a mob tried to assault non-union men, and were resisted by the strikers themselves, who were at length overpowered and the cars over turned.

Senator Peffer Makes a Fiery Speech at Cincinnati. Terrence V. Powderiy Given a Mighty Ovation by the Delegates to the Third Party Convention. Associated Press DisDatches. Cincinnati, May 19.—A largely at tended meeting waa held tonight, the orator of the evening being Senator Peffer, of Kansas. He began by Baying, the people before him were the harbing ers of revolution that dethrone money and re-establish the authority of the people. It is a movement not to destroy, ,but to create; not to tear down, but to build up; not to destroy the wealth of the rich, but to restore to labor its just reward. Referring to a placard on the balcony of the hall: "nine million mortgaged homes," Peffer said it told volumes. The disease of mortgage usury must be cured. Growing more fervid in his manner, the sneaker said: "What shall we do with the money power? We'll raise up a power among the people; make our own money and use it. [Tremendous ap plause.] Take their railroads? No. We'll build our own, [more applause.] We will fight with ballots and prayer, for the Alliance is in a great measure taking the place of the churches." Peffer closed by giving the new party a great boost in these words: "Does this mean a new party? [Cries of yes.] What else are we here for ? The proph ecy of the hour is that a new party is to be born here, add its name is to be the National party." [Great applause.] cabeless voters scolded. M. H. Wilkins, of Kansas, also spoke. People should think with their brains, not with their stomachs. Too many of the toiling masses take their opinions ready-made. He did not believe in the absolute truth of the maxim that tbe people were always right. The stamp of public approval was often given to a wrong doctrine. He favored eight hours. "The Peoples' party," said he, "is going to settle two things—the two old par ties —and the wants of the people will get the relief demanded." He waa seriously severe on the money power, and, in conclusion, read some wholesome advice to the reform party, the burden of which was to preserve a high standard of individual character. tebrence v. powdbrly speaks. The next speaker was one who had not been advertised, but received a greeting that nearly raised the roof. It waa General Master Workman Powderly. He began by declaring that he could say amen to every word that Peffer and Wilkins had voiced. "It has been charged," said he, "that lam here to head off the third party movement. If your movement is so weak that one small man can head it off, it is not worthy of the name. My friends, this movement is not too large to be led or stopped by any one man. (Wild ap plause.) Powderly went on to warn the con ference against undue haste. No presi dent could be elected next year, if it was tried. Speaking to the Kansas men, he said they did not understand the situation in his part of the country, where ignorant foreigners were brought to the polls and voted by numbers. "Pennsylvania requires patient educa tion, and the success of the reform movement depends upon the education of the people. The Knights of Labor will vote the principlea of their organ ization, and when you form a party em bodying such principles as have been announced here tonight, you will find every Knight of Labor Btanding at the polls and doing his full duty." The meeting dispersed cheering again and again for Powderly and the Knights of Labor. A BASIS TO WORK UPON. It ia understood that when the states were called in the committee on resolu tions tonight, Congressman Otis of Kan sas proposed that the conference reaffirm the Ocala and St. Louis platforms, and appoint a national committee to confer with the members of a meeting to be held in Cincinnati, February 22, 1892. Otia's proposition, it is said, waa warm ly supported by Weaver of lowa and Donnelly of Minneaota, and will proably form the baßia upon which the commit tee will perform ita labor?. The new party men in thia conference, who are hourly growing bolder in their demands for immediate action, are de termined to head off the McCune-Polk- Simpaon contingent, and to that end they are exerting themselves to have the convention take Buch action and adopt auch a platform as will make the new party a certainty in '92. Prohibition and woman suffrage were aired before the committee. McCune and Simpaon are charged with lin gering so long in Washington after the adjournment of congress that they have become impressed with the ideas of those who are opposed to active work looking to the formation of a new party. The committee on rules and order of business tonight decided that in all disputed questions the states shall be ■called, and the chairman of each dele gation shall announce the number of persona in favor of the proposition and those against it. and the majority shall rule. Thia will give Kansas a decided advantage. A DESTRUCTIVE PIKE. Four Large Buildings Burned at Jack sonville, Fla. Jacksonville, Fla., May 19. —Early this morning a large building occupied by the United States district court, post office, Maaonic lodge room, G. A. R. hall, etc., was burned. A number of people living on the third floor barely escaped with their lbes. The post master saved the mail and furniture, while others occupying the building lost everything. The fire was one of the most destruct ive that ever visited Jacksonville, and the losses foot up nearly half a million dollars. Three more buildings, a three story brick occupied by a liquor dealer, and a restaurant, and another adjoining, which was used by the United States government as a bonded warehouse, were destroyed. After the last building was burned the firemen got the fire under control. THE THIRD PARTY DEMAND. At midnight the committee on resolu tions was still in session, with the pros pect of an all night meeting. From time to time there have been intima tions of discord. About 10 o'clock Pow derly was summoned. Mr. Norton, of the Chicago Sentinel, addressed the committee, urging the formation of a new party at once, and announc ing his intention, in the event the committee shirked the responsibility imposed upon it, to carry the fight into the convention. He was frequently in terrupted by applause. The feeling in favor of decisive action as to the forma tion of a new party, is steadily growing, and what was before a suggestion is now a demand. It is said that at least one hundred propositions are before the committee for consideration. A Boost for Chlpman. San Francisco, May 19.—A resolution was adopted by the state board of trade today, recommending that the Califor nia world's fair commission appoint N. P. Cbipman superintendent and general manager of the California exhibit at the world's fair. W. H. Mills, E. W. Mas lin and J. W. Davis were appointed a committee to present the matter to the commission, and also to formulate the opinion of the board as to what the Cal ifornia exhibit should comprise, and to, what extent the various counties of the state may separately exhibit their prod ucts. The raisin industry will be the subject for discussion at the next meet ing- _________ REDUCED TO FRAGMENTS A WORK TRAIN BLOWN TO ATOMS BY DYNAMITE. A Soore of Laborers Killed Outright and Others Fatally Injured—The Bodies of the Victims Fearfully Mangled. Takrytown, N. V., May 19.—Just be fore noon today a work train of the Hud son River road was Dlown to atoms near here, by the'explosion of dynamite be ing tranaported to uae in track construc tion. There were thirty-three men on the train, eighteen of whom were killed and the remainder seriously, gome fatally, wounded. Many of the dead were blown into the river, and five Igodies atill remain there. The train | waa torn to atoms. The tracka were ripped from the road bed and a great hole waa torn in the earth. There were twenty-four caaes of dynamite in the first car of the train, each containing fifty pounds. A spark from the engine, it ia said, set fire to a greasy rope coiled in front of the pack ages, and an explosion followed. Its force waa terrific. The walla of houses in Tarry town, two miles away, were cracked, and window glass fell in show ers to the sidewalks. Scores of clocks were stopped at 11:20. The car in which the dynamite waa stored and those following it were com pletely demolished, while the bodies of the unfortunates on the train were hurled in every direction. A terrible sight was witnessed by those who hur ried to the apot. The track waa torn up for a space of six hundred feet, the raila bent in all sorts of Bhapes, while dead bodiea and terribly mangled men, still living, could be seen about. The locomotive was blown out of all semblance to one, and the tender had been thrown half way into the river. Some men were found hundreds of yards away from the track, while others were taken out from the hole made by the explosion. The wounded were in moat eases horribly mutilated, in several in stances their arms and legs, being torn off. As rapidly aa possible the wounded were cared for by surgeons, and removed to tbe hospital. Ten, of those killed were picked up along the track, while five were taken from the river. Three of the injured died shortly after being picked up. It is be lieved there are still some bodies in the river, and the total number of killed will be twenty or more. The killed are: John McCarthy, time keeper; Frank Morrisey, powder tender; Brakeman John Smith and fifteen Itali ans, names unknown. All the train hands were seriously in jured, as well as a dozen or more Italians. A panic occurred in the high school of Tarrvtown among the pupils, when the building was violently shaken by the explosion, all thinking an earthquake had occurred. The children ran wildly into the street, but fortunately no one was injured. A Government Swindler. Spokane, Wash., May 19. —It ia alleged that a special agent of the government land office has been operating through eastern Washington for the past month, with remarkable success. He goes by the name of Pendleton, or Pemberton, and threatens saw-mill men with prose cution for buying timber from settlers who have not yet settled on their claims. He has swindled five or six men out of sums ranging from two hundred to five hundred dollars. Special agent Skiles is besieged with inquiries from this . man's victims. Advices from Washing ton say he has no connection with the general land office, but he must have been so connected at some period in the past, because he has credentials, and is thoroughly familiar with his business. Judge Tuft's Condition. San Diego, May 19. —Judge Taft has been unconscious for two days. It is only a question of a short time when death comes. General McCook has of fered a guard of honor aa a token of ap preciation of his services as secretary of war. Encalollne Will cure the worst ease of piles known. SELLING OUT !

Denver, May 19.—The north, south and west sank all sectional interest at the first session of the Trans-Mississippi congress, which opened here today. When the convention was called to or der at 10:45, by Mr. Fishback, chair man of the local organization, fully one thousand delegates were present. Gov ernor Routt, on behalf of the state, wel comed the delegates. Mayor Rogers, of Denver, spoke on the duties of legisla tures and congress. Chairman Fish back deprecated sectional bitterness, but warned the convention not to be blinded by the vital questions awaiting settlement. The developments of nine states, in the New England corner of the country, controlled the wealth of the people. They dominated politics and succeeded in demonetizing silver. It had forced the commerce of the vast area west of the Mississippi river, and interdicted its commerce. A recess till 2 p. m. was then taken. At the afternoon session Mayor Shakespeare of New Orleans made a speech, in which he referred to the re cent events in New Orleanß, and said he thanked the people of the United States for the manner in which he was upheld in trying to do his duty as an American citizen. He was glad that it was he who was put in a position to enunciate those few ideas of American principles that were left to contend for. American citizens should have no fear of assassina tion. Ex-Governor Anthony of Kansas, in an address, complimented Shakespeare's management of the New Orleans affair, and said: "We open our doors wide for the nations of the earth, and permit them to pluck the fruits of liberty and equality as we pluck them, but in order FOR HELP WANTED, SlT nations Wanted, House* and Rooms to Rent, Sale Notices, Business Chances and Profes sional Cards, see 3d Page.

Ex-Senator Tabor entered upon a lengthy discussion of the material re sources of the country, urged cheap transportation and declared _ that the time had come for the fusion of the south and west. They were too power ful to submit to the dictation of the middle states. He demanded free coin age, and demanded that congress take remedial steps. The government seig norage was robbing the farmers. At 5 p. m. the congress adjourned until tomorrow. The slate made up by the committee on permanent organization is thought to be: Chairman, ex-Governor Anthony, of Kansas; first secretary, B. .F. Foray the, of New York; assistant, T. Richardson, of Texas; a number of vice presidents, including N. B. Glynn, Idaho; H. W. Lawrence, Utah; J. C. Bayard, Wyoming. There will probably be a struggle over the chairmanship. The free silver men want Ferry, of Utah. Another faction wants Anthony, and it is not improba ble that the convention may compro mise on Shakespeare, of New Orleans. El kin 8 Not a Seal Catcher. New York, May 19.— S. B.
