VOL. 36.—N0. 170- IT CAN'T LAST LONG. The Situation at Santiago at Its Utmost Tension. Something is Bonnd to Bend or Break Suddenly. The Junta Evinces No Intention to Abandon Its Position. Peremptory Notice Given by Minister Egan that Balmaceda Refugees Most Be Allowed to Leave the Country. Associated Press DtVoatches. Santiago, Chile, Oct. s.—The Chilean government has so far evinced no inten tion of abandoning its position that it has a perfect right to arrest persons as they enter or leave the precincts of the American legation. But while stren uously insisting upon the possession of this abstract right, the government is at present making no attempt to put it in practice. The partisans 6f Balmaceda who took refuge under Minister Egan's roof, are still there, and no arrests have been made during the past few days. It cannot be learned that the government has in contemplation any plan for asserting in the near future the right of arrest that is claimed, but it is thought the present unsatisfactory situation can not be long in continuance. MINISTER EGAN'S ACTION. In accordance with the instructions received from the state department at Washington, Minister Egan has given tbe Junta to understand by formal and official notice that if the Chilean author ities continne to maintain their present attitude, friendly lelations between Chili and the United States will be in terrupted. The Junta's reply to the notice is awaited with great interest. What Minister Egan's next step will be in case the reply is unfavorable, is not known. The United States flat?, ship San Fran cisco, which is returning from the north, is expected to reach Valparaiso some time this week. When she gets in.o port the present plan of the Ameri can minister is to ask tt*e Chilean gov errment to allow the refugees now at the United. States legation to go on board the United States man-of-war Baltimore and take their departure from Chilean territory. THE CHILEANS AGAIN DISPLEASED. New York, Oct. s.—Advices to the Herald from Valparaiso, Chile, state : Word has reached here of the arrival of the flagship San Francisco at Payta, Peru, of her orders from the American government to return to Valparaiso.and of putting into Callao harbor on her re turn to this city. The news has not been received pleasantly here. The Chileans regard her return with undis guised disfavor. ELECTION RUMORS. Election day is drawing near. Rumors about candidates for the office of presi dent increase in number. Among those prominently mentioned is Senor Iraraz avel. It is understood, however, that the majority of the leaders favor tender ing the honor to Admiral Jorge Montt, who, with Waldo Silva and Ramon Baros Lugo, from the now widely cele brated Junta de Gobierno. In fact it is reported that he has already been urged to allow his name to be used as a candi date. No one cordd be selected who could .satisfy all the factions as Admiral Montt would. TO SCREEN A PRINCE. Facts Concerning Hiss Wanton's Death Still Kept Secret. London, Oct. s.—The newspapers here denounce the coroner for keeping secret the depositions taken at the in quest as to the cause of the death of Lydia Miller, or Manton, the actress who suicided last week. Considerable interest is being taken in the case. At the inquest Saturday, Lord Charles Montague, brother of the Duke of Man chester, testified as to having been on very intimate terms with the deceased. Mysterious allusions have been made in the newspapers to a certain high per sonage understood to be Prince Albert Victor, eldest son of the Prince of Wales, Who is also thought to have had inti mate relations with the dead girl. The Star says Lord Charles came for ward at the inquest and assumed to be the girl's particular friend, in order to screen another. The coroner today still refuses access to the depositions taken, and it is openly stated that the members of the coroner's "jury were called upon to sign a blank paper instead of the usual record of proceedings. The Star says the truth as to the mys tery will never be known, and that it is obvious that-another inquest has been hushed up without good cause. The Star also says: "When it was found that she wore a diamond bracelet as a mark of princely favor, it was quite certain that everything that money could do would be done to prevent publicity at the inquest. Was it because there was a crime to conceal? Or was it because some exalted personage was involved some person whose feelings could not endure the penalty of exposure?" . . In an interview with George Lewis, Q. C, who watched the inquest upon the body, the distinguished lawyer said: "I know nothing of any attempt to suppress testimony. No motive for the girl's suicide transpired, except that she was.highly strung and subjects to fits of ♦ depression. There was no suggestion at the inquest that Lord Charles Monta gue was not the real person involved." Miss Lydia visited the United States as a member of the London Gaiety com pany iv 1888. • CUBAN BRIGANDAGE. The Execution of One Outlaw Has Not Intimidated Others. Havana, Oct. s.—The execution of Hußtasio Mandez, the kidnaper, Jdoes not seem to have instilled any fear into the hearts of other persons engaged in brigandage and kidnaping in various parts of Cuba. Intelligence reached the city of another brutal crime committed by bandits. An outlaw named Manuel Garcia, with two other bandits, made an attack upon the residence of P. Her nandez and killed both him and his wife. When an officer searched the body of Senor Hernandez, ho found in one of the pockets of his clothing a letter from Garcia, addressed to the civil authori ties of Ouivican, placed in the pocket of the victim to snow contempt of the efforts of the authorities to capture him. The murdered couple leave four chil dren. Hernandez was aged 40, and his wife, who was pregnant, was 32. Gar cia's letter says: "Hernandez had been my friend since boyhood. I killed him because he tried to deliver us to the guards. I have never before killed a woman, but I killed his wife because she induced him to betray me. I hurt only those who hurt me." More Contraband Goods. San Francisco, Oct. 5. — Collector Phelps today opened six cases of alleged crash towels consigned to Newberger, Reiss & Co. Tho first two cases opened contained crash towels, according to the invoice, but tho remaining cases were filled with the finest qualities of velveis.

San Feancisco, Oct. s.—The public administrator has asked Judge Coffey to settle his final account as special ad ministrator of the estate of Mrs. Hop kins-Searles. He states that the estate in California is valued at $2,060,000, and $5000 per month. THEY LIVE ON NOTHING. MOTHER SEALS DO NOT EAT WHILE SUCKLING THEIR YOUNG. An Important Natural History Discovery Made by the British Bering Sea Com missioners—One of Blame's Strongest Arguments Knooked Galley West. Ottaw\, Ont., Oct. s.—Word is re ceived here by the department of ma rine and fisheries from Victoria, B. C, that 11. M. S. Pheasant brought news from Bering sea of the movement of Powell and Dawson, the British com missioners investigating the seal fishery question. They are at present on board the steamer Danube, and have been from the Commander islands, in Rus sian waters,.to West Bering sea. They obtained from the Russian authorities permission to visit these islands in or der to study the movements of seals and to discover what truth was in the theory that in seasons when seals are plentiful on St. George, St. Paul's and other islands on the eastern side of Bering sea, tbey are scarce on the Commander islands, and vice versa. This season seals ate plentiful at the breeding island and fully half a million seals were in sight there at one time. At Bt. George's, however, the number was not so great, lt was found by fas tening chips to the tails of young seals that they do not remain in the vicinity of their native place, but cross from side to side of Bering sea. The Pheasant brings the report that several female seals were killed during the suckling season, by the commission ers, and their stomachs were found to contain nothing but a little seaweed and pebbles. It is an important point, and one on which tho commissioners re ceived special instructions. During the last conferences at Wash ington, Secretary Blame held that the moEt serious reason for stringent restric tions on the taking of 6eals in Bering sea was that mother seals, which during the suckling season swam fifty miles every day to the feeding grounds, would be taken in great numbers, and the young seals which they left on the shore would perish unless the mother seals were pro tected. He said the race of seals would thus be exterminated. Sir Cbarleß Tupper argued against this that as a matter of fact the mother seals never left their young in the suck ling season, during which time the mothers took no food at all. Secretary Blame ridiculed this idea as one unheard of in natural history, but Sir Charles pointed out that tbe seal as a hibernating animal had a store of food on which it could well subsist for a long time. The report that the Btomachs of the mother whale were found empty bears out Topper's statement. The steamer Danube is expected at Victoria before the end of the week. NO MORE PILGRIMS. The Disturbance at the Pantheon Causes the Pope to Stop Receiving. Rome, Oct. 4. —At the ministry of finance this evening it was reported that a confidential circular has been sent to the nuncios abroad, explaining that owing to the disturbances at the tomb of Victor Emmanuel in the Pantheon last week, the pope will be unable to receive more pilgrims. Thousands of citizens marched in pro cession to the Pantheon yesterday to deposit wreaths on King Victor Em manuel's tomb. While the crowd was in the chinch a number of radicals mounted some altars and made violent speeches, denouncing the Vatican and shouting, "Dowh with the priests!" Paris, Oct. s.—Le Temps expresses the hope that the fraternal demonstra tions at Nice yesterday, on the occasion of the unveiling of a monument to Gari baldi, will have a good effect on the re lations between France and Italy. Le Temps is of the opinion that M. Rou vier's speech at the unveiling will act as a corrective of the bad effect of the out rage committed by French Catholic pil grims at Victor Emmanuel's tomb last week, and that the question of the res toration of the temporal power of the pope has ceased to excite Berious feeling in France. A Stormy Voyage. Sax FEANCisco.Oct. 5. —The Norwegian bark Eureka arrived today, 160 days from Hamburg, She had a stormy passage, and during the trip three of the crew died from disease and one was lost overboard.

Lieutenant - Governor Jones Again Toots His Bazoo. If Flower Is Eleoted Governor He Will Be the Next President—Herman Oelrichs Abjures Tam many Hall. Associated Press Dispatches. New York, Oct. s.—The Democratic club of New York tendered a reception to Roswell P. Flower, Democratic can didate for governor, this evening, in the club house at Fifth avenue. It was a notable gathering of prominent Demo cratic citizens, including ex-President Grover Cleveland.' In response to cries for a speech, Mr. Cleveland said in part: "Probably you are of the opinion that I have been more interested the past few days with a non voter than with actual politics. [Laugh ter and applause.] I regret to say that non-voter won't be able to help the Democratic party until tbe prohibition against woman" suffrage has been re pealed." [Renewed laughter and ap plause.] JONES TOOTS HIS BAZOO. Lieutenant-Governor Jones has issued a card in which he says: "If successful in this election nothing can defeat Mr. Flower as a presidential candi date in '92, which would place the national government as completely under the control of Tammany hall as the city of New York now is, and this would make Mr. Sheehan governor. Those who desire this consummation of events, should sustain it, right or wrong, and those who do not, should at least pause and think." OELBICHS'S RESIGNATION. Herman Oelrichs this evening ten-_ dered his resignation as a member of the Democratic national committee to Chairman Brice. The action of the Democratic state convention in its nom inations, he said, indicated that Tam many hall is to be the ruling spirit in the state. This was contrary to his views, and he therefore resigned. ALASKA'S NEEDS. Governor Knspp's Annual Report—The Sealing Question, Etc. Washington, Oct. 5. — Lyman E. Knapp, governor of Alaska, in his an nual report to the secretary of the in terior, devotes considerable space to the seal islands and the seal industry, the 1 most serious difficulty in the matter, says the governor, is the illegitimate slaughter of females and young in the open sea. There is no doubt that a most valuable industry and a moat fruitful source of national increase is in danger. More than one hundred marauding ves sels were hovering about tbe islands in Bering sea during tbe season, and large numbers of skins were taken. The steamer Danube made a special trip to the Northern Pacific during the latter part of June, reaching Victoria on her return July 6th last, having on board nearly 18,000 seal skins, received from thirty-five sealing vessels which it met apparently by appointment. Those delivering their cargoes to the Danube were all British vessels. The governor estimates the illegitimately taken skins during a small part of last season, at from 50,000 to 60,000. The value of the products of Alaska exported during the year was $8,042,000. The report gives an account of. the progress made !n educational work aa carried on by the government. He sug gests that the management of schools should be made as far as practicable local, and that they should be non-par tisan and non-sectarian. He favors the appointment of a territorial board of public instruction by the secretary of the interior, and under the control of the commissioner of education, to have full authority as to the government schools and the expenditure of public moneys. The governor comments upon the need of additional legislation, and states that in the last seven years congress has given the territory no new laws, except the four site and land acts. It is im portant now, he thinks, that the meth ods of drawing juries be modelled. The town site law passed by the last con gress, he thinks should be supplement ed with legislation providing for munic ipal corporations. He thinks congress should appoint a special committee to look after Alaskan legislation and Alas kan interests, and that the legal and political status of the native population should be defined by legislative enact ments.

THE FAMOUS ECCLESIASTIC TRIAL TO GO ON, A Bare Majority of the New Tork Pres bytery in Favor of Prosecuting the Charges Against Hint—Most of the Clergy in Favor of Letting the Mat ter Drop. New Yobk, Oct. s.—At the semi-an nual meeting of the Net»V York Presby tery, today, the prosecutfjiff committee appointed to prepare the papers in the trial of Prof. Briggs, presented a report embodying the charges agaiust him. The chnrges in brief are as follows: Dis belief in the Bible as the only true source of Divine authority; disbelief in tbe verbal inspiration and inerrancy of the scriptures; disbelief in the immedi ate sanctification at death of the souls 'of those dying in the faith. Professor Briggs moved that his case be taken up the first thing in the after noon, but the motion was defeated. Tbe indictment bases the charges against Professor Briggs solely on his inaugural address, because it ia the most deliberate and emphatic exposition of his doctrines. The report goes on to e»y that it was decided by tbe com iaittee that it ir* neither neeesaary nor advisable to embrace in the list of charges all the doctrinal errors contained in his inaugural address, and while its teachings respect ing miracles, the original condition of man, the nature of sin, race redemption and Dr. Briggs's schemo of biblical the ology in general are not in harmony with the scriptures, and calculated to weaken confidence in the word of God, and to encourage presumption on the clemency of God, it was decided best to confine attention to a few departures from the teachings of the scriptures, which are fundamental to the entire die ctission. Tbe report had not been presented to the meeting, and routine business was in progress when Dr. Alexander, of University Place church, moved to sus pend the order of the day to present a resolution in the Briggs matter. It was declared out of order by a number of those present, but the moderator ruled otherwise and an appeal from his dcci ' slon was made in which he was sus tained. 'Notice of appeal to the synod from the decision was. then made. Dr. Alexander read his report. The preamble set forth the fact that Prof. Briggs, since his accusation bad supple mented his answer to the charges by answering numerous questions. These questions and answers of Prof. Briggs were part of the preamble. The resolu tion was to the effect that the Presby teiy, in view of these latter declarations of Prof. Briggs, deemed it expedient to arrest further proceedings and discharge the committee from further considera tion of the matter. Dr. Robinson and others protested against the resolution. At 1 o'clock an adjournment was taken until 4 p. m. When the Presbytery reassembled Dr. Alexander withdrew his motion to suspend the order of the day. He gave notice, however, that he would renew it after the report of the committee was read. Dr. Birch, chairman of the committee, then read the report. At its conclusion, Dr. Alexander reintroduced his resolu tion for the dismissal of the proceedings. A long discussion of this followed, and it was iinallv put to a vote, resulting: Ayes, 62 (12 elders and 50 clergymen); noes, 64 (20 elders and 44 clergymen); thus defeating the motion. Then the original motion was adopted, confirming the recommendations of the committee that Dr. Briggs be served with a copy of tbe charges and stand trial. Two votes seemed to indicate that a very small majority is in favor of trying Dr. Briggs. Tho fact that the majority of the clergy was in favor of shutting off the trial and discharging the commit tee, was very pleasing to Dr. Briggs. He now has ten days in which to make his reply; After some routine business the Pres bytery adjourned until tomorrow. To day's proceedings were unusually tur bulent, and several times there were calls for a better Christian spirit. The King is Dead. Stottoabt, Oct.

Last Saturday our "Palatial Stores" were crowded with an eager throng of the best citizens of this town and vicin ity, all eagerly bent on purchasing our "great.and only bargains." "Customers good natnredly jostled each other in the aisles, every one being satisfied to wait his turn." "Wealth and poverty were in the same crowd, hand to hand," all on the same level. Every one was treated alike, for we are the "great and only original one-price dealers." Ah, it was a beautiful scene. Our stores were "flooded with electric light," and as the merry throng of Bankers, Mer chants, Printers, Farmers and. Laboring Men came "jostling" in, one coulcUiot help but say: The whole world is "akin "to get our great and only bargains. Our "would-be competitors" stood aghast as the great crowds came pouring in our "gilded palatial stores." Well, let them take warning, those fellows that came here from the slums of London and St. Paul to take advantage of the inexperienced granger. Yes, let them take heed, those 200 per cent fellows. We propose to do them up. The public appreciate our efforts to sell them goods at cost. We have just received twenty cases of goods from our Barbary Coast store in San Francisco, which we will put in our great "Slaughter House Sale."
