LAURADA GETS AWAY.
And the Qneatlnn la Now Being Aaked la
8>he a Filibuster or Not,
Philadelphia, Sept. 6 — Th«re is at
present considerable discussion in strip
ping circles as to whether or not the
steamship Lzurada, Captain Hnghee,
which paesed to sea midnight Wednetdaj,
ou a voyage to Port Morant, Jam sice,
can be oalled a filtouater or not. While
her agents deny tbat she has on board
any materials or ammunition for (he
Cuban insurgents, It U the general belief
along the wharves that ehe ha« Captain
Uughes ridiculed the report and said If
thsre were any such good« on board his
vessel It was unknown to him.
A well known shipping man. whose
knowledge of customs laws is undisputed,
said that the Laurada could not he
stopped taking ou hoard for Jamaica any
character of cargo her owners deelrid
shipping, so loug as it was manifested
and the sh'p properly cleared from the
custom bouse. Jamaica bslng a British
possession and in a state of peace, tbe
landing of such cargo there could not be
prevented, but Its exportation to Caba
would be a thing the British government
would have to look out for. As It la, tbe
clearance papers of the Liurrda, swotn
to by Captain Samuel Hughes, her
master, is described as "water ballast."

Mr. Bjytrd's description of Mr. Cleve

serves. Tbe error was of the heart
rather than of the hesd. Mr. Bayard

THE FOREST FIRES II WASHINGTON.
Mr. and Mr«. Charles W. Kdwards Passed
Throuali Them
land.
The Portland Morning Oregonian of
Monday contains the following ;descrip
tion of the forest fires in Washington as
seen by Mr and Mrs. Charles W.
Edwards, who went to 8t. Paul several
weeks ago to attend the International
Typothelæ Convention and took advan
tage of the opportunity to travel
through the Northwest and Southern
California ;
"From the reports brought In by trav
elers, the tires lu Washington are again
burning with renewed activity, and
much valuable timber is being destroyed.
Charles W. Kd wards, of Wilmington,
Del ,who came over tbe Northern Pacific,
says that tbe train ran through miles of
burning forests, although never close
euough to get a scorchiug, or to briug
serious annoyance lo the passengers from
the smoke or heat. The sight at night,
he said, 1< one well worth seeing, and dis
counts auv pvrotechnio display he bas ever
seen. Tbe firmes, ho said, dart out from
the mars of burning timber and run
along the ground for several huudred
yards through tbe dry leaves, as if they
were a train of powder. Whenever a
moss-covered tree—some giant of the
forest—is reached tfce flames rnn up it,
and in an instant every branch and leaf
is In flames, the glowing mass standing
out In bold relief for a few teoonds,
until other trees are lapped up by the
flames. Mr. Edwards a&vs that he never
saw a grander eight, and thinks it well
worth a trip over the road to see."

each for male and female patients and an
amusement room. Tbe wards .s planned
are three-story buildings containing

As planned, the walls are to be

ADVANCING IRON PRICES,
It Is Said Tbat They Will Not Affect
Local Trade Since There Is No Kant
en) Competition In the Western
Markets.
According to advice from the West to
day the last advance iu tbe prices of pig
iron and tbe sotion of the Western Bar
Iron Association at Cleveland yesterday
In raising the rates on all bar iron $2 a
ton opens the way for important ad
vances In other brauche« of manufacture
Tbe advance in the price of bar iron
puts common bar at $28 a ton. It was
tbe direct result of tbe rapid advance In
pig Iron rates and tbe movements in that
line indicate that the manufacturers will
be compelled shortly to make another
advance to $30 a ton. The new rate on
bar Iron will, if maintained, until No
vember 1. give tbe Amalgamated Associa
tion pnddlers $4.75 a ton and an advance
for ail finishers as well, if the present
upward tendency is sustained, the
manufacturers may advance bar iron to
$30 a ton.
Every sheet and plate mill lu the

THE NEW PARK DRIVE
MOVED SO AS TO MISS THE ROCKS AT
VAN BUREN STREET.
Tlie Park Commiulin anti City Couuell
nifu Meet on the Brandywine, Inspect
the lioadg and Ground, and UIhuii
Plan*.
Yesterday afternoon William P. Ban
croft, George W. Bush, William M.
Cauby, Joseph L Carpenter. Jr., Dennis
J. Menton and Engine« rj James Wilson
aud Theodore A Leiceu, coustitu'ing the
Park Commission, met at a print ou tbe
Brandywine opposite Van Bureu streit
for the purpose of discussing the pro
posed changée iu tbe park drive
President Csnby objected to the route,
as it would destroy the plotureique
group of boulders at tbat point, and tbe
rest of the board conceded this and
agreed to the moving of the line a few
feet soutl^ just sufficient to rklp tbe
rocks.
The deviation of tbe road at tbe old
stone quarry was another point of dis
caselon President Cauby aud Mr
Bancroft were ircllned to ase the old
route partly because a portion of tbe cut
bas been made and again that if the
road runs too near the edge of the bluff
It would be dangerous
Mr. Carpenter and Engineer Wilson
thought, however, tbat tbe adhearlng to
the old route would maze a tunnel of the
road there aud that it would be prefers
ble either to adopt the new ronte or else
drop both and run ont into Liverlng
Ex president of tbe Street and
Hewer Department J. Newiin Uawtbrop,
who appeared on the scene jest then,
favored tbe adoption of tb* new reute
The matter was finally left to Prealdent
Canby and Engineers Wilson and Lelaen,
they to formalste plans snd submit them
to the commission.
The next point was Clayton street
bridge, where President Bay 11s, Clerk of
Oouncil William P. Morrison and Coun
cllmeu O'Neill, Leary, Watson, Fisher,
Zibley, Staats, Hebinsen, McNulty aud
Ob.rly, wete met. The huge cracki In
tue walls of the abutments sua ap
proaches to the bridge were In
spected and it was generally con
conceded tbat aometblug should be done
The coucecsns of opinion teemed to be
that an arch bridge should be thrown
from pier to pier. No action was taken.
Tbeu tbe entire party, excepting
Couucllman Staa'.a, who is still nursing
hia sprained ankle, and Squire O Neill,
whose years preclude him from much
hill climDtng, ctambeted to tbe top of the

THS D. S. GUNBOAT WILMHGTOH.
To Be Named In Honor of Till. City—In
itial Steps Towards Securing an Ap
propriate t.lft for Her.
The honor of having a man-of-war
namtd after one's native or adopted city
Is considered by the residents of that
city as highly desirable aud they have
Invariably shown their appreciation by
presenting to tbe craft bearlug its name
a handsome silver servloe or other
appropriate testimonial. This shows
not only the Interest taken In tbe new
ship, the assuming of a sort of God
fatliershlp as It w> re, but links more
closely those who reside between tbe
walls of wood and wtose of stone and
brick.
The Navy Department has decided to
name one of tbe new gunboats to be
bailt at. Newport Nswb after tbia city,
Wilmington, aud It Is but fitting that
the good peophs of this city should take
cognisance of it. Other cities bave done
honor to themselves snd their namesake
and Wilmington should not be behind
hand.
With thia object in view, the Evknino
Journal has started ■ subscription list
tbe fund to be u-ed for tbe purcba'e of
s silver service for the United State«
gunboat Wilmington. The money re
ceived will be acknowledged in these col
umus sud held subjeot to tbe orders of
a committee of citizens which will
be selected later. Another suggestion
the Evkmno Journal would make at this
point is, that one of Wllmlngtou'6 many
charming and fair daughters be chosen
to christen tbe new craft when launched.
The Historical Society, Rons of tbe
Amerloan Revolution, Delaware Hinein
natl, and the New-Ceutury Club should
all tabs a hand In this work, and with
organ/.id iffort on their part It should
be au easy task to raise a handsome sum
for a royal testimonial.
