Many Volunteers for the Con gressional Army. Lack of Arms is the Weak Point of the Revolutionists. Kaliuacedo'n Am.y Kept Up by Forced Conscriptions Terrible Cruelties Practiced by the Tyrant. Associated Press Dispatches. Iquiqub, June 22.—The United States flagship San Francisco returned to port today and will leave for the south tomorrow. -Men are steadily joining the congressional army. Many volunteer to serve without pay. It is expected that the congressional army will soon assume the offensive. New York, June 22.—Three gentle men, recently arrived from Chile, told a Story today about the conduct of affairs in that country, which would seem to indicate that the terra tyrant is well ap plied to Balmaceda. They tell of all sorts of indignities heaped by his order upon people whom he suspects are not wholly in sympathy with him. Having their houses marked with paint, and subjecting such houses to search and pillage by his soldiers at any time, is one of his methods ot persecution. Men who are pressed into military service are horribly punished if insub ordinate. One unfortunate who had been heard to say he would work his hands off for the revolutionists was ar rested, his fingers pounded into a jelly with a mallet, and he w..., then told to go and work with his hands for the rev olutionists. The weak point with the revolutionists is lack of arms and ammunition. They have about 8000 men fully armed and equipped. Could the necessary muni tions of war be obtained, the number would be at once increased to over 10, --000. Several thousand men are only waiting for equipment to take'up the march against the government party. Balmaceda's army consists of 25,000 men well equipped. Of these only 3000 are of the old n'aiy, the remainder be ing recruits forced into service. These men are brought in from the provinces in batches of twenty-five to fifty hand cuffed together aud guarded like Si berian exiles. They are put into the ranks and compelled to serve. The gentlemen said Don Pedro Montt is on his way to this country to try to .induce the United States to recognize the revolutionists as belligerents. A rumor is current in this city that the European agents of the revolution-' ists have paid the remainder of the con tract money due on two cruisers just finished for the Chilean government, and have 'oaded and dispatched these vessels to Chile, where they will light against Balmaceda. If this is true, it will be the hardest blow against him yet struck. FINANCIAL CRASHES. Two Southern Bank! Compelled to Close Doors—Other Failures. Nashville, Term., June 22. — The Nashville savings bank, conducted by Julius and Max Sax, closed its doors this afternoon. Messrs. Sax claim that their suspension of business is due to the stringency of the money market and their inability to get rediscounts in the east.

Ala., June22.—The Flor ence national bank, of Florence, Ala., closed its doors today. The immediate cause is said to be the spread of false re ports which caused a run on the bank. Some confusion seems to have resulted by reason of Mr. Flaanigan, cashier of the Alabama Banking and Trust com pany, having been ior a time also presi dent of the Florence national bank. liquor dealers assign.

JAY GOULD ON SILVER. He Ha* All the Whtle Metal Coin He Wanti. Nrw YoßK.June 22.—The Tribune has ' been interviewing New York financiers upon the effect of the coining oi silver under section 3 of the silver bill, which becomes operative July Ist. Jay Gould said: "I think it would be very unfor tunate to enlarge the volume of silver money just at this time. We have a superabundance of silver as we stand, and I think if nothing more is done that we can about maintain the parity between sil ver and gold. I should be afraid, if we went any further, that it might be the last straw that would break the camel's 'back. Of course I am very anxious, as we produce so much silver, to see it maintained at a high standard, but we have got to take into account the other great financial nations of the world and no one can afford to bear the whole bonuß." insurance difficulties. The New York Life Sued by an Austrian Attorney. New York, June 22.—Representatives of the state insurance department began an examination of the affairs of the New York Life Insurance company today. It was learned today that Bell Kan, a law yer of Hungary, has brought !suit against the company in the courts of that coun try for the return of premiums he has paid, plus 6 per cent interest. This ac tion, it is said, is based upon the law prohibiting mutual companies from doing business as joint stock concerns. The New York Life is reported to have \ LOS ANGELES HERALD. tried to do this and registered in 188G as a share-company, which it is not, and in duced Kan to insure his life on such representations. Vice President Tuck said that the difficulty in relation to the company not being a joint stock com pany, had been settled. It arose through a mistake in the translation of a concession from the Hungarian gov ernment. New papers, however, had been filed and there was no longer any difficulty of the nature indicated. AN IMPORTANT DECISION. The New County Government Law De clared Constitutional. San Francisco, June 22. —The su preme court has decided that the county government act passed by the last legis lature is constitutional.

Washington, June 22.—The Mexican government has informed Seiior Romero that the Mexican consul at Port-au- Prince has reported that an armed force broke into his house un der orders of President Hippolyte, of Hayti, and took four political refugees, who were immediately shot. While it is not true chat President Diaz, of Mexico, has authorized, directly or indirectly, such a step, the Mexican government took the view that con suls having under international law the right of asylum enjoyed by diplo matic representatives, no insult has been made to Mexico by such action, al though this was otherwise hardly ex cusable. St. Louis, June 22.—A dispatch from the City of Mexico says: Several days ago two warships of the Mexican fleet sailed from Vera Cruz with 400 soldiers for an unknown destination. It is be lieved they have gone to Hayti, where they have been ordered to demand reparation of Hippolyte for violation of the Mexican consulate at Port-au- Prince.

They Will Go to Alaska to Gather Expert Testimony. They are Not Arbitrators as at First Reported. Hritish Politic—lnteresting; Debate. In the British Parliament—Gladstone Ha. Another Relapse. Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, June 22.—The depart ment of state has been notified of the appointment by the British government of Sir George Baden-Powell and W. Dawson as agents to visit Alaska and collect information respecting the seal fisheries. The statement coming from London that these men had been ap poited arbitrators is erroneous. The negotiations looking to the arbitration of the claims made by the United States have not progressed to the point that would permit of the appointment of arbitrators, and in fact the nature -of the arbitration it self has not yet been agreed upon. It maybe that Powell and Dawson hereafter serve as the representatives of the British government upon the expert commission which the two nations are bound to send to Alaska, but it is alto gether improbable that they will be ap pointed arbitrators, as their previous duties might be supposed to unfit them to act judicially in a matter where they formerly acted as partiean experts.

C, with the intention of spending two months on board a man-of-war cruising hi Bering sea, visiting the Pribyloff islands and all the principal stations frequented by the sealers. At the expiration of their cruise it is ex pected the British arbiters will be suffi ciently welt acquainted with the details of the seal hunting business and with the needs and interests of sealers to be able to meet the American arbiters as experts. The Times today says the appoint ments will be received with general sat isfaction, both in England and Canada. The Times adds that the American com missioneis will doubtless be equally qualified and the subject will have every chance of being settled in an honorable and peaceful manner with full knowl edge on both sides. Ashley Froude, son of the historian, has been appointed secretary of the British Bering sea commission. BRITISH POLITICS.] Sir John Gorst Feels It His Duty to Re sign His India Office.

Above all things it is important to avoid public reference to the matter. This the pres ident will insist on." He continues: "While no notes were exchanged between us, I carefully min uted my modification of the paper you left with me containing Lord Salisbury's propositions, and did so immediately 4rH«r you left the apartment.*' H« s.«*ds as if to impress it: "You will observe the private character which I wished to impart to the conference as recognized by you."
