Associated Press Dispatches. Iquique, June 4.—The steamship Itata arrived here this morning from Toca pilla, and has been delivered over to ■ the American warships now here. The Itata handed over all the arms she took from San Diego. at TUB ARMS ON THE ITATA. The commander of the Itata states that the arms were not embarked at San Diego, but at a point many miles at sea. The Iquique government claims that this cir cumstance modifies the situation considerably, and will probably result . in a speedy solution of the difficulties between the admirals and the junta. The authorities at the same time declare that the cargo of the Itata is of little importance, taking into coasideration the small number of arms. THE CHARLESTON ARRIVED. Iquique, June 4.—The United States steamship Charleston arrived here at noon today. THE ESMERALDA AT PANAMA. Panama, June 4.—The Esmeralda has arrrlved here. TBE CAT OCT OF THE BAG. How the Surrender of the Itata Was Brought About. Washington, June 4.—The navy de partment received official information tonight of the peaceful surrender of the Chilean insurgent steamer Itata, at . Iquique, today. The information was contained in a dispatch from Admiral McCann. The Itata arrived from pilla last night and was placed at the disposition of Admiral McCann- this morning. She had on board, the dis ' patch says, 5000 rifles and also ammu- I nition taken from the schooner Robert , and Minnie, off the port of San Diego, 1 California. Bbc had no other munitions of war than those belonging to the ship, smd had transferred nothing to the Es meralda, with whom she communicated off'Acapulco, Mexico. Admiral McCann says the cruiser Charleston arrived at Iquique today, and that the Pensacola was expected before night. The Itata will now be sent back to San DiegO, probably under the convoy of a cruiser. She will be delivered to tbe United States court officials at San Diego, and the proceedings against her will be resumed. Secretary Tracy gave to an Associated Press reporter tonight tbe chain of cir cumstances that led up to the peaceful surrender to the United States of the Itata today. The secretary said that the desire for her surrender came from the leaders of the insurgent party at Iquique. Shortly after the vessel illegally" es caped from the custody of the marshal at San Diego, the United States govern ment was informed by the insurgent leaders that they disapproved the action of the officers of the* vessel, and made offers through Admiral McCann to peacefully surrender her to the United States assoon as she arrived in Chilean waters. These offers were communicat ed to the department at Washington, and duly accepted by this government, without, however, implying recognition on the part of the United States of the insurgents as belligerents. As soon as the offer was accepted a telegram au thorizing him to cease the chase was sent to Captain Remyof the Charleaton, but tbe steamjer had already sailed when the telegram reached Acapulco. Secretary Tracy said the Itata would be sent up to San Diego. BALKACIDA'S SWAY. The Dictator Given Absolute Power by the New Congress. Washington, June 4.—South Amer ican mails received by the bureau of American republics contain interesting details of the Chilean civil war. The new Chilean congress convened by Bal maceda has placed absolute power in his hands. It has authorized him, "pending the pacification of the coun try," to arrest and transport persons at will; to augment the land and sea forces; to expend public revenues with out regard to estimates; to procure money by pledging the credit, of the state, and to suspend the right of meet ing and the liberty of the press. In pursuance of'these powers, decrees are published in the Diario official, re leasing four prominent citizens sus pected of sympathy with the congres sional revolutionists, from imprison ment jn the Santiago prison, on their depositing $50,000 catch in the Valpar aiso national bank to the order of the secretary of the interior, conditioned on their not taking part in the revolution. They are further required to reside in Europe and not to return to Chile with out special permission of the govern ment. Ten or twelve other citizens are • also released from imprisonment on similar conditions, their bonds ranging from |3000 up to $50,000, but with per mission to-remain within Chilean terri tory, provided they do not "take part in politics." The Almirante Lynch and the Condell, the two torpedo boats which surprised and sunk the insurgent iron-clad Blanco Encalada, but which appear to have been less successful in subsequent opera tions, while lying in Valparaiso harbor, are guarded by two field pieces and mi trailleuse stationed on the custom-house mole, to secure them against treachery from within or without. United States minister Eagan and all the members of tbe diplomatic corps at LOS ANGELES HERALD. tended the opening of Balmaceda's con gress, excert the German and Ital ian ministers. The British, French, German and Italian governments, it is understood, have protested against the decree closing to commerce the va rious ports now held by the insurgents. The representatives of the insurrection ary party claim that these ports produce a revenue of $2:>,000,000 annually, and that there are 60,000 foreigners resident in the provinces which the insurrection ists control. Famine prices were said to be prevail ing at Iquique. Meat was selling at 70 cents a pound; potatoes at $20 a bag, and flour at $30 a bag. FOSTER S FAIRY TALES He Sees No Kvll Resulting From the Billion-Dollar Congress. New York. June 4. —In company with Murat Halstead, Secretary Foster this evening visited the Union League club in Brooklyn. At a subsequent reception he spoke in an informal way. He said in part: "Our Democratic friends have a good deal to say abovft the billion dollar congress. Every move we make, our Democratic friends seem to think indicates poverty in the treasury depart ment. Recently I thought it wise, and prudent to propose the extension of the 4}/ a per cents. The treasury department is abundantly able to pay these bonds when they mature. In view of the fact that $50,000,000 in gold has been ex ported within a short period of time, I deemed it unwise to do anything just now to decrease the volume of currency in the national banks. My prediction today is that these bonds may be ex tended, and at tbe rate of 2 per cent, interest, will bear a premium, a condi tion of credit that exists nowhere in the world besides." A SWF.I.I. SOCIAL EVENT, General Schofleld Going to Take a Youthful Bride, Chicago, June 4. —News of a social event of the first magnitude was pri vately discussed tonight among army officers. Although not yet formally made public, the announcement is said to be authoritative that Major-General John M. Schofleld, senior officer of the United States army, who is a widower and is now in the west,will soon be mar ried to Miss Georgia N. Kilbourne, of Keokuk, lowa. The date has been fixed, but is not given out. The bride is quite youthful, being a schoolmate of General Schofield's daughter. The Kilbourne family is a prominent one in lowa social circles, and is well known in the east. Pauper Immigrants Sent Back. New Yobk, June 4. — Twenty-three immigrants were today sent back to Europe by the federal authorities st the barge office. They were all without money, and liable to become public charges.

Paris, June 4.—A dispatch from Iqui que says in consequence of Bolivia's recognition of the Chilean congress party as belligerents, the Chilean min ister at Lapas has demanded bis pasE ports. ________________ A PATRIOTIC PRELATE. ARCHBISHOP IRELAND IS A MODEL AMERICAN. He Takes Another Whack at the Luoerne Memorial — The Foreign Conspirators Handled Without Gloves. St. Paul, Minn., June 4. —Since the publication of hie interview of a few days ago regarding Cahensley's Lucerne me morial, Archbishop Ireland has had many telegrams and letters of endorse ment of his views. Today, in an inter view with an Associated Press corres pondent, he talked further on the sub ject. He says: "As the details of the plot are unfold ed, the indignation of the Americans, whether Catholic or Protestant, cannot but grow in intensity. The whole pro ceeding is an insult to American nation alism, and reveals the fact that certain Europeans imagine America to be some sort of an African Congo, without an autonomy of its own, incapable of life without the constant application of Eu ropean galvanic batteries. "Catholics are mortified that their religion is made the occasion and pre tense of this insolent foreign intermed dling. Strange news, indeed, for Amer ican ears to hear that the Austrian and Prussian ambassadors in Rome have been instructed by their home govern ments to bring to bear upon the Vatican their influence in aid of Herr Cahens ley's plan of campaign ! "The contagion has spread to an extent that compels a. smile of 'amuse ment in the midst of our anger. We find Monsieur Mercier, minister of the province of Quebec, a colony of Eng land, running to the Vatican and pray ing in the name of his little constitu ency that a Canadian bishop be named for the see of Ogdensburg, in the state of New York. We can easily picture the further extension of this foreign ambi tion to rule Catholic affairs in America, aud iv a few years the ecclesiastical map of the. country, would show the fingerings of every foreign principality whose emigrants choose to touch our shores. "This attack of foreign ism upon the church in America, however, is killed from its own audacity. So long as it worked stealthily by secret embassies and back-door entrances, it was danger ous and was doing harm. It has now entered into open combat, and the out come will be most favorable to the church and the country. "I have seen an official denial of a representative of the Deutsche Ameri kanischer Priester Verein, or German Clerical society of America, disclaiming all knowledge of the Cahensley memo rial. What he will not deny is that the Cahensley memorial is nearly word for word a document which the German priests of St. Louis, the founders of the verein, sent to Rom 6in 1886; nor will he deny that a few days ago Amerika, a paper which is fed on verein food, de clared openly that it will ceaselessly work for Cahensley's programme. Whatever of the letter, the spirit of the Cahensley movement thrives in the halls of the verein, and the verein is an exotic to which American air is most uncongenial." FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 5, 1891.—TEN PAGES. RECIPROCITY TALK. Canada's Efforts to Negotiate a Treaty. Topper's Report to the Domin ion Parliament. The Substance of His Interviews with Secretary Blame. Some of Blame's Letters Withheld from Publication —Some I liferent ing Communications. 4st,octated Press Dispatches. Ori'AWA, Ont., June 4. —The first in stallment of a paper dealing with tbe Washington reciprocity negotiations has been laid before the Doiuinion parlia ment. When Newfoundland negotiated a treaty, Sir Julian Pauncefote cabled the colonial office that Canadian opinion should be invited. Simultaneously, Sir John Mac Donald communicated with Sir Charles Tupper, urging him to enter 'objection on the ground that it would be injurious to Canada and violate the imperial policy of considering the At lantic fisheries as a whole. Letters which indicate the attitude of Mr. Blame toward Canada's proposal are missing. For the publication of these, permission has not yet been ob tained. One interesting communication is dated January 23d, from Lord Knuts ford, colonial secretary. He says: The Newfoundland ministers are willing to negotiate for an arrangement with Can ada on a basis similar to that with the United States, and her majesty's gov ernment strongly hope the Dominion will, on this understanding, withdraw its opposition. The reply to this note is not given. The most important communications are reports by Sir Charles Tupper of his interviews with Mr. Blame. Tupper gives the details of his first talk with Mr. Blame, in company with Paunce fote, and says: "I told Mr. Blame I wished at the outset to recognize the accuracy of the statement contained in his letter to Pauncefote, which I had seen in refer ence to our invitation to open negotia tions regarding reciprocal treaty ar rangements between the two countries, in that I believed it arose from negoti ations which had recently taken place between the United States and New foundland, and the desire expressed by Canada to be included in any arrange ments such as had been understood to have been contemplated by the United States and Newfoundland; and that .upon that being communicated to him /by Sir Julian Pauncefote he had expressed his willingness to open nego tiations for reciprocal treaty arrange ments between Canada and the United States, assisted by delegates from the Dominion government, the negotiations to be informal and to a certain extent of a confidential nature, until they could assume a more formal character, if any result were arrived at. Mr. Blame said he understood that Canada had taken exception to the proposed arrangement with the United States by Newfoundland. I admitted that such was the case, and explained that the interests of Canada and Newfoundland had always been regarded inseparable. "I told Mr. Blame that I wished to re move the idea, if he retained it, which had been promulgated in Canada and the United States that the present gov ernment of the dominion was not warm ly in favor of most friendly relations with the United States. In an article which I recently sent over my own signature to the North American Review, I had undertaken to give con clusive evidence upon that point, and I needed further only to refer him to the fact that, when Sir John MacDonald,who was one of her majesty's high commis sioners, submitted to parliament for approval the Alabama treaty, which settled all the then leadine questions between Canada and the United States, he was fiercely denounced by the leaders and press of the Liberal party for having basely sacrificed the interests of Canada in endeavors to promote friendly rela tions between Canada and the United States. I added that I had experienced the same treatment from the same party when I submitted for the approval ot parliament the treaty of Washington, of 1888. Of course in 1866, and subsequent ly in 1885, when the treaties which gave United States fishermen common rights with ours were abrogated in conse quence of the action of the United States, we were thrown back upon the treaty of 1818; but the statements that Canada then resorted to a sharp con struction of that treaty with the object of promoting freer trade relations with the United States, were erroneous. We were compelled, in justice to the rights of our own fishermen, who were met with the high Dutch in United States markets, to protect them. '. ; Mr. Blame desired to assure me that outside of individual differences of opin ion, there was no interest taken by niftmbers of the congress of the United States in the recent Canadian election, and they had taken no active part to in fluence the result of the election. "Continuing, I said Canada was most anxious to have the freest and most friendly relations with the United States, consistent with the interests of both countries. Mr. Blame said he was free to admit that the treaty of 1854 was not abrogated on commercial ground,' but in consequence of the feeling that Canada sympathized with the southern states in their conflict. I replied that it was difficult to see upon what basis that opinion could be entertained; it was admitted that no less than 4000 Ca nadians fought in the northern army to maintain the union, while I did not sup pose that forty fought on the other side. Mr. Blame supposed that the very large bounty had a good deal of influence in the matter. I then said the un happy conflict had taken place previous to the confederation, but I could speak with some accuracy of the province of Nova Scotia, with which I was then connected; that the legislature of Nova Scotia passed a resolution de ploring the war, and one of tbe sharpest of international questions arose, as he 1 would remember, in connection with 1 the Chesapeake incident in the harbor of Halifax. "I told Mr. Blame that Sir John Mac- Donald and party had the strongest de sire to promote a reciprocal treaty be tween the two countries and their hopes in that direction were greatly strength ened by the decided measures which Mr. Blame had taken to promote recip rocal treaties with other countries,and I could not see why he could not with great advantage to the United States, as well as to Canada, extend to the north the same policy he pursued with the countries south, whose trade was very much smaller than that be tween the Dominion and the United States. I said the fact that he had ex pressed his readiness to receive the representations that Canada wished to make, would show that he was quite open to consider that question. 1 was further strengthened in my views, I ad ded, by the disposition he had shown to make reciprocal arrangements with : the colony of Newfoundland. "Some question then arose between Sir Julian and Mr. Blame, as to bond ■ negotiations. Sir Julian explained that ' bonds had no authority to be negotiated in any other way than through him. Blame said it did not appear necessary to negotiate a treaty with New : foundland as that colony had ex pressed its readiness to give the United States the privileges enjoyed by their own citizens, and they proposed not. only to give bait to United States fishermen, but to refuse to give the same privilege to Canada. I told Mr. Blame that the bait act in Newfoundland had received the aßsent of her majesty upon the distinct pledge that Canadian ves sels would not be affected by it. Her majesty had the power to disallow any bill that might be passed upon the sub ject of the colony. "Upon the conclusion of the inter view, I thanked Mr. Blame very much for his courtesy." Following this is Sir Charles Tupper's report with regard to his doings in Washington when accompanied by Sir John Thompson and Mr. Foster. It ap- Sears that Sir Julian's telegram about tr. Blame's desire to postpone the con ference did not reach * Sir Charles in time, and he had no intima tion of it till the delegates reached Washington. Mr. Blame at the meet ing then expressed great regret at their failure to receive his message. He said the president was extremely anxious to be in Washington during the negotia tions, and requested that they be de ferred until a later date, as he had made arrangements which could not be changed for an immediate visit to the West; and Blame also mentioned that the president said as there would be no meeting of the cabinet before December, no serious inconvenience, he trusted, would arise from postponement. The date was later fixed for October 12th, next. < In conclusion Sir Charles says: "After carefully thinking over all that has oc curred, I consider there is good reason to hope that fair arrangements may be Viatic with the'fcovernttrent; of the Unit ed States, in relation to tbe important question contained in Lord Stanley's dispatch to Lord Knutsford of the 13th of December, 1890. MRS. HANCHETTE'S OFFER A REWARD OF $300 FOR THE LOCA TION OF HER HUSBAND. Some Plausibility Attaohed to the Theory That He is Selling Organs in South Dakota—A Skillful Organist. Chicago, June 4. —Mrs. Hanchette, of Los Angeles, telegraphed Lieutenant Kipley, of the central station, this morn ing, that she would pay a reward of $300 for the location of her husband, alive. The dispatch was immediately sent to Sheriff Cooley, at Flandreau, S. D., who believes he has located the missing man, selling Kimball organs. Mrs. Hanchette says her hus band is a skillful organist, and the fact that his brother, C. D. Hanchette, of Hancock, Mich., once sold Kimball organs, lends a significant appearance to the theory established by the South Dakota officeis. AN ALL AROUND COLLAP9B. Russell & Co.'s European, American and Asiatic Houses Ruined. New York, June 4.—The rumored suspension of Russell & Co., of China, was confirmed today at their New York office. The house in China suspended, in consequence of which the New York, London and Boston branches had to suspend. The amount of the liabilities or assets is not known to the New York representatives. The liabilities are cur rently reported to amount to several million dollars. The liabilities are chiefly owing to several banks in China, a few banks in London and a few ill New York. Up to eight years ago Russell & Co. were the managers of the largest local steamship in China. It was a source of great profit, and after its sale to Chinese capitalists the old partners in the firm retired, taking their fortunes with them. Since then the profits of the China trade have not war ranted an expensive style of conducting the business. A few months ago' tho firm attempted to organize a bank in London. Two of the wealthiest directors recently withdrew, and the scheme col lapsed. The firm's principal business was in silks and teas. In a silk manu factory at Hongkong, it is said, they lost from $300,000 to $400,000. Of the "part ners W. H. and H. D. Forbes reside in Hongkong; S. W. Pomeroy in London; F. H. N. Huntington in Paris, John M. Forbes, jr., in New York. Blame at Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor, June 4. —Secretary Blame has arrived here and is now quar tered at his summer home. Sir John's Condition.
