Her Punishment Likely to Be In the Shape of Pines. The Steamer's Machinery In Bad Condition for Sailing-. Her Officers ami Crew Not Apt to Jeop ardise Their Liberty by Return ing to the United States. Associated Press Dispatcher. Washington, June s.—Concerning the Itata affair, Secretary Tracy said today the next step will be to send the Itata back to the United States to stand trial. There is no expectation that the offi cers and crew of the Itatawill jeopardize their liberty by returning with the ves sel to San Diego, and, in fact, as it was reported from Mexico that the •com mander of the insurgent war ship Es meralda acted as captain of the Itata as far as Acapulco, there are at least good reasons why he must not return to the United States. WILL OF.T OF* EASY. In official circles it is believed that the Itata is not likely to suffer heavily as the result of her escapade. Credence is given to the statement telegraphed from Chile that the vessel took the contra band arms and ammunition from the Robert and Minnie outside United States jurisdiction. If this is true, the offense against the neutrality laws is min imized) and it in very doubtful if a case could be made out against her in the present state of uncertain construction of the law. There is little doubt that she can be held on other charges, such as contempt of court, in sailing away while under an injunction, kidnaping a marshal and sailing with out clearance papers; but these are minor offences whose punishment is likely to take the shape of tines, and not to the length of the forfeiture of the vessel. THE TRANSFER OF ARMS. The only dispatch received at the navy department today from Admiral Mc- Cann, at Iquiqne, was one correcting the statement as to the location of the Itata when the arms were transferred from the schooner Robert and Minnie. This transfer, the dispatch save, took place off San Clement© island,a few miles from the coast, instead of off San Diego har bor. The location of the transfer may be of importance in determining . the question of the jurisdiction, of the United States court. * THE ITATA'B MACHINERY IN BAD SHAPE. Iqiuqce, June s.—The machinery of the steamer Itata is in a bad itate, and it will require Borne . days to put it in' order again. The junta alleges that the arms and ammunition having been transferred to the Itata near the island of San Clemente, the American law was not violated, and is making strong repre sentations to the United State* govern ment with a view to getting possession of the munitions. ORDERED SOUTH SOON. San Francisco, June 6. —Admiral Va lois, commanding the German squadron which arrived here from Yokohama, en route to Chile, today, received instruc tions tonight to proceed south tomorrow noon. Deeming it impossible to coal and obtain provisions in so short a time, the admiral cabled to Berlin for an ex tension of time at least till Monday. The officers express but little hope that the request will be granted, and they expect to leave here tomorrow with a short supply of coal, and proceed as far as Panama at least.

The Government Displeased With His Actions at Philadelphia. Washington, June s.—Lacey, comp troller of the currency, today said that the city council of Philadelphia had never asked him to appear betore the committee, so he could not exactly per ceive the necessity of asking the presi dent to direct him to do so.

Duncan, of Washington, charged with attempting to murder his wife in Wales, last month, was taken into court at Carnarvon for examination today. Thequarryman who saw Duncan bending over his wife in the rocks, and holding a stone in his hand, told his story, .and Dr. Jones who at tended Mrs. Duncan swore today that when he expressed doubts of Duncan's story, Duncan took him aside and said: "I did it myßelf with the stone you have seen.

The usual con sultation is over and the doctors have decided not to issue any bulletin. Dr. Wright said the patient's condition was as bad as it could be.

Sir James Grant said: ,- His condition is as bad as can be, and the thread between life and death maybe severed at a moment." SCHWEINFURTH'S TWIN. A CALIFORNIA MAN MISTAKEN FOB THE FALSE CHRIST. The Accidental Resemblance Got Him into a Scrape That Nearly Resulted in Injury to Himself and Daughters. ChicAgo, June 5. —Schweinfurth, the "Rockford Messiah," who has been worrying the people of Kansas City so much of late, left there last night for Chicago, and incidentally Mr. A. Mc- Cartney of California, who much resem bles Schweinfurth, and who was travel ing oast with his daughters, had a very exciting experience. He had been ob served about the city yesterday, and was quietly trailed by some people who auppoeed him to i)e Schweinfurth, and when he started for the Kansas City depot last night, with his daughters, the word was quickly spread about that the Rockford man was .leaving town witli two of Kansas City's fair young women, the supposition of the scouts being that Schweinfurth was taking new recruits to his Rockford "Heaven." A crowd of infuriated citi zens hastened to the depot, and when the McCartneys arrived in a carriage, a rush was made for them. Mr. McCart ney was considerably surprised at the hostile demonstration, but promptly whipped out a youngcannon and ordered the ciowd to stand back. He then ex plained to them who he was, whereupon one of the leaders of the mob told him they had confounded him with Sehwein furth. and the crowd dispersed. AH this time, it is said, Schweinfurth was snugly encouched in a berth in ajsleep ing car, listening to the tumult outside. WIRE WAIFS. Michael Davitt and wife have arrived at San Francisco.

Dillon and O'Brien's Sen tences Not to Be Affected. The Conservatives in High Glee Over Theii Prospects. Gladstone's Latest Utterance on Home Rule—The Prince of Wales in a Bad Kow of Stumps. Associated Press Dispatches. London, June s.—Balfour today paid, though he considered the time had come when certain portions of the coercion act might he suspended, espe cially the clauseß dealing with sum mary jurisdiction, he never meant that the action of the government should be retrospective, as far as remitting the sentences of Dillon and O'Brien was concerned. PORTIONS TO BE SUSPENDED. London, June 5. [Copyright, 1891, by the New York Associated Press.] Balfour's proposal to relax the coercion act will not be explicitly announced in the commons un til.next week.but enough is known as to what the government in tends to propose to justify the Conserva tives in feeling some little pride over the results of Balfour's policy. All the provisions of the crimes act directed against criminal conspiracy will be withdrawn, while other provisions, notably the secret inquiry section, will be retained. Balfour's first statement that while there are 3019 prisoners in Ireland wfw were sentenced under the crimes act, it has been the occasion in the Unionist press of letting contracts with the coer cion policy under Gladstone, when the prisons were full. In the face of prison statistics, and in the face also of the fact of absolute peace in every district in Ireland and cessation in the press and on the plat form of expressions of discontent, the Gladstonians will find it difficult to respond to the Unionists' plans. The accepted Liberal explanation is that the pacification of Ireland is due as much to Gladstone's policy of conciliation as to Balfour's coercion. These explanations ignore the Gladetonian predictions when the crimes bill was under discussion in parliament. Doubtless a number of causes operated to associate the Balfour regime with the steady cessation of disorder, but his ad ministration has seen the National league broken to pieces, the plan of campaign collapsed, and coercion suspended after four years operation. Gladstone's latest utterance on home rule is his writing to the wom ans' Liberal federation that the Irish crisis is as acute as ever, and home rule as a fixed plank of the Liberal platform as certain as ever, but that the Irish questions are asleep as far as electoral interest goes with quiescent Ireland. THE LAND BILL is still largely to occupy the house for a week. Balfour has sent a message of peace and good will to the evicted ten ants in accepting the clause enabling a landlord to sell his holdings, over the head of the man in possession, to an evected tenant or his predecessor. Evicted tenants can claim pre-emption right, and will only be able to benefit by the clause within six months after the act passes, but the provision saves from rum many victims of the plan of campaign. THE BACCARAT REVELATIONS have stirred to the deepest depths the whole religious world. The news that the prince of Wales is an habitual gamb ler, taking supplies of cards and count ers wherever he goes, has blasted every chance of the nationals granting him relief for his debts. The leading Bap tist organ compares the prince's taste for the race course and gambling, with the noble example of his father who, if living, would share the intense grief of thousands of Englishmen. THE NEWFOUNDLAND DELEGATES have arrived at a satisfactory agreement with the government for a permanent act to replace the three years' measure passed by the local legislature.

THKY STAND BY BRIGGS. The Directors of the Union Theological Seminary Defy the Assembly. New York. June 5. —The directors of the Union Theological seminary have met and declared their position on the question of the right of the general as sembly of the Presbyterian church to veto the transfer of Professor Chas. A. Briggs from the chair of Hebrew to the chair of Biblical theology. A resolu tion, passed at the meeting this after noon, says the directors, after having taken legal advice, and alter due consid eration, see no reason to change their views of the subject of the transfer of Dr. Brim, end feel bound, in the dis charge of their duties under the charter and constitution of the seminary, to ad here to the same. The intent of the veto passed by the general assembly at its recent cessions in Detroit, was that Dr. Briggs should cease to be a professor in the Union seminary. Tlie effect of the resolution given above is that it is the judgment *»f the directors that the veto was a usurpa tion of powers never given, or intended to be given, to the general assembly, and since the veto was illegal, the appoint ment stands and Dr. Briggs will continue asuprofessor during the coming year, as (lowing the past seventeen years. 11.

MINNEAPOLIS NURSERYMEN SHY THEIR CASTOR. They Say the Los Angeles Man Is a Dude Who Puts On a Clean Necktie Every Day and Wears Patent Leather Shoes. Chicago, June 5. —A Daily News' Mi nneapolis special says: The American Nurserymen's association took a shy at the horticultural department of the world's fair this afternoon. One of the members read a paper, in which Walter S. Maxwell, who has been appointed chief of the bureau, was referred to as a "dude" and a "man who wears a new necktie every day and buys a pair of patent-leather boots every week." After a lengthy discussion resolutions were adopted protesting against Max well's confirmation, and against the pro posed classification of horticultural ex hibits. They suggest a revised style of sub classification for the department. A BOUBLE FRATRICIDE. Two Young German Ranchers Killed by Their Brother. Spokane, June s.—Passengers in from Coulee City bring additional particulars of a double murder near Waterville, Wednesday. Four brothers named Yon Bramen, Germans, young and unmar ried, occupied two homesteads, fifteen miles northwest of Waterville, on the Columbia river. Two of the brothers had lately arrived from Germany. The murderer was named Robert. He com mitted the crime with a shotgun, and is still at large. The remaining brother, who can speak very little English, car ried the news to, a neighbor, who rode that night to Waterville. The sheriff left at midnight with a posse in pursuit of the murderer, but so far nothing further has been learned from the scene. It is known that John and Jake had been on bad terms for some time and would have nothing to do with each oth er. The partition of their stock had been one cause of contention. Peter, the surviving brother, said that Henry was plowing, and had in his team a horse which belonged to Jake. The lat ter came after his horse and a quarrel ensued, during which John rode up on his horse. Peter, who was not far dis tant, heard a number of shots fired, and went up to see what was the matter. He found two of his brothers dead or dying and the third standing near. Jake told Peter that he had killed his brothers and was going away never to return, and directed him to go and tell Mr. Downey of the affair. The mur derer then mounted his brother John's horse and rode away. A shotgun and revolver were left on the ground. Both belonged to Jake. Every barrel of each weapon had been discharged. Jake's horse came home Thursday morning, and his brother thinks he committed suicide. It was learned that Jake was wounded when he left. MISS COUZINS'S CASE.
