A Pacific Mail Passenger Ship
Bombarded.
United States Minister Baker Was
on Board.

Likewise General Honllla, Whom Capt.
Dow Refused to Surrender to the
Authorities, Usnos the
Shooting.
By the Associated Tress.
RpW York, Nov. 0 —The Herald'faLa
Libertad (Honduras) dispatch 'sayß:
Honduras fired upon the American flag
this morning by the alleged orders of
President Vasquez and by tbe express
command of the commander of the port
of Amapala. Several shots were fired
after the Pacific Mail steamship Costa
Rica, flying the stars and stripes, as she
steamed away, because she refused to
sin render one of her passengers to the
Honduras government. United States
Minister Baker was on board tbe Costa
Rica at the time.
The passenger about whom tbe trouble
arose ia I*. Bonilla. who recently led tbe
revolution in Honduras, but wae de
feated by General Vaequez. He fled to
Nicaragua and decided to leave there in
order to relieve the government from all
responsibility. Heeailedfrom Nicaragua
and Minister Baker and 100 others were
fellorf-passengerß. They arrived yester
day at Amapala, tbe port of entry of
Honduras on tbe Pacific coast. Com
mander of the Port Villa de
manded that Captain Dow should
surrender Bonilla. When the request
was refused, a threat was made to sink
tbe ship, and it was asserted President
Vnequez had given orders to that
effect.
Villa, incensed at the refusal to sur
render Bonilla, gavb orders to fire on
the ship after nightfall when it was too
dark too leave with safety. Govern
ment officers came on board at 3:30 this
morning and said new orders bad been
received from the president insisting
lon the delivery of Bonilla or the bom-
I bardment of the ship. Captain Dow re
plied tbat the commander of the port
would receive his answer in half an
hour, but before the time expired he
sailed away.
Several shots were fired after the
Costa Rica, although carrying the
American flag. One of the shots struck
her, doing no damage, but. it ie feared
the steamer Calla of tbe same line,
which was iying-in port, may bave been
injured, for the tire continued some time
alter the vessel was out of range.
Tbe congrees of •Honduras has con
ferred upon General Vasquez the power
to make war on Nicaragua if an inva
sion of revolutionists from tbat republic
occurs.
A POLITICAL. SENSATION.
Wisconsin State Offloera Sued by a Firm
of Job Printers.
Madison, Wis., Nov. 6.—Governor
George W. Peck, Attorney-General J. L.
O'Connor, Assistant Attorney-General
J. H. Clancy and Col. Clarence L. Clark
are made tbe defendants today in a suit
brought by Tracy, Gibbs & Co., a job
printing firm of this city, to recover
$7500, which is part of a large sum of
money alleged to have been advanced
last summer to'enable the Madison
Times to execute an order for printing
an edition of the roster of Wisconsin
soldiers, specially given to it by the
governor. The Madison Democrat, the
regular state printer, compelled the
governor to cancel the order, but tbe
money was already (wallowed up. Suit
is brought against the defendants on the
theory that they were all directly, or
indirectly, in tbe Times. The Bait
causes a political sensation.
OVERLAND RATES.
The Santa Fe Takei Stops to Meet the
Canadian Paetflo Ont.
San Francisco, Nov. 6.—The initial
move for reducing overland passenger
rates was made today when W. A. Bie
sell and C. H. Speere, local agents of tbe
Santa. Fe road, accompanied by H.
Thompson, tbe Los Angeles agent of tbe
same company, called on the officers of
the Southern Pacific company and made
an official request for action looking
toward tbe lowering of passenger rates
to eastern points. No understanding in
regard to the proposed rates was reached.
The reduction recently made by the Ca
nadian Pacific is said to be tbe cause of
the movement for lower rates among
other lines.
A New Survey.
San Francisco, Nov. 6.—The almost
endless litigation growing out of the
faulty surveys in Oak Grove township,
San Diego county, bus finally claimed gov
ernment attention. To settle the matter
definitely United States Surveyor Gen
eral Pratt has decided to bave the town
ship resurveyed. Tbe contract has
been given to Clement R. Glees. He
will have to survey three miles of town
ship lines and 32 miles of section lines,
lie will start in a few days.
A Marine Battle.
Nkw York, Nov. 6.—Tbe World has
the following : There may be a fine ma
rine battle just outside Sandy Hook
within the next 10 days. It is declared
Admiral Mello is negotiating for the
purchase of two large ocean-going tugs

boles in the El Cid as soon as she shall

A Jealous Wife's Ravenaje.
St. Locus, Nov. 6. —John Minor was
accused tbis morning by bis wife of de
serting her for another woman. A

IN BLOCKS OF TEN.
How the Ban Dlesro and Pbconlx Road
Will Be Built.
San Dibcio, Nov. 6.—The San Diego
and Phojnix railroad company today
filed in tbe office of the county recorder
a bond mortgage to thn Metropolitan
Trust company of New York, aa trustse,
to cover an issue of $l,000,0iK) 20-year 6
per cent interest-bearing bonds, limited
in issue to $20,000 per mile for each mile
of railroad constructed. President
Carlson, being interviewed, said:
"When 10 miles of the railroad is built,
tbe Metropolitan Trust company will
issue to the company, $200,000 bonds
upon which a loan $160,000 has been
arranged for, and with this money an
other 10 miles will be completed, when
another issue of $200,000 bonds will be
made, and thus tbe road will be built in
blocks of 10 miles each, through to
Pbccnix, Ariz., by way of Yuma. Over
five miles of road are now graded and
over three miles of track laid. Work is
going forward rapidly, nearly 1010 of
San Diego citizens having pledged to pay
a dollar per mile each, as fast as the
road is graded. With this local aid the
completion of the first 10 miles is
assured, when tbe funds from the bonds
will become available.
BANDITS SURROUNDED.
The Ollphant Trnln Mobbers Given a

Little Rock, Ark., Nov. 0 —The men
engaged in hunting down the Iron
Mountain train robbers, have been in
tbe saddle the past 48 hours. The rob
bers are in close quarters, ny. far from
| Jamestown, where a posse has, them
] surrounded. United States Marahal
Abner Games, feels confident the rob
j bers will be run down very soon.
WHAT CARLISLE SAYS.
A FEW MORE SILVER DOLLiRS
COULD BE USED.
He Has Not Ordered the Hfjlnts to Coin
Any llulllon Vat, but He Expects
to Uo so In line
Tune.
New York, Nay. ti.—Carlisle, secretary
of the treasury, arrived hero tbis morn
ing. He declined to say anything in le
lation to the financial and iuainesa situ
ation or express, any opinion as to tbe
outlook. In reply to a qnestion of a re
porter for tbe Evening lost Carlisle said
he bad not ieaued any order directing
th J mints to coin the-silver bullion in
tha trfstsury mw »y*fntrt of it. "What
1 bave done ia just thia," said Carlisle.
"We conld use a few more eilver dollars
now, and I therefore directed the minta
to get ready to coin bullion when it was
deemed advisable to do so. It would
take more than five yeare to coin all the
silver bullion now in tbe treasury. If
we should begin to coin it the seignior
age would not in round figures amount
to more than $1,000,000 per month.
With tbe certainty that purchases of
silver bullion are stopped, we can proba
bly nee the silver to advantage. I
ahould be sorry, therefore, to see any
law passed, as suggested, that we set
aside that portion of the bullion tbat
would become seigniorage and coin it
alone and at once, and thus add to the
treasury available cash. If we did that
I think the coin would come back to ne
in a way we should not desire to see.
Something should be left to tbo dis
cretion of tbe sectetary. The law at
present invests him with authority to
coin such of the eilver bullion as may
be necessary for the redemp-,
tion of treasury notes. If I ahould pro
ceed to coin some of the bullion now
on band, it would give us about $1,000,
--000 a month in seigniorage, and, as I
bave said, 1 think in ihe preeent cond
ition of tbe treasury, I could use it with
advantage. I do not want to have a mis
representation or misunderstanding of
movements to the country."
CAUGHT IN OiLIFOKNIA,
An Illinois Murderer tn Custody at
Stockton.
Mrm'iiybboro, 111., Nov. S.—Sheriff
Hutchmacher of this county went to
Springfield today to procure requisition

Washington, Nov. 6. —The elections
throughout the country tomorrow are
waited with gr-*at interest by public
men in this city who see in them en in
dication of the result of the presidential
election in 1890. Politicians are looking
upon the election, not as being an en
dorsement of tbe Oemicratic party, or
rebuke, but aB an indication of public
feeling. Viewed from the Washington
standpoint the elections are interest
ing as presenting the thoughts of the
people on multifarious questions, with
out involving any fresh political
significance. Secretary Lamont left
this evening for New York
where he will vote tomorrow. As
sistant Secretary Hamlin of the
treasury department left this evening
for Massachusetts to vote tomorrow.
Supervising Architect O'Rourke, Solic

respective homes for the same purpose.
The congreesioral contingent in the

with them well-known congressmen
from the ether states to irake tbe clos

CLARKSON'S COMMENT.
The Hawkeye Oracle Talk* About Poli
tic and Things.
New York, Nov. 6.—Gen. J. f>. Clark
son of lowa was seen today at the Plaza
hotel by an Associated Press representa
tive. In speaking of the financial aspect
of the country be eaid :
"This silver panic wae altogether cre
ated by the bankers ior their own inter
ests, and politics had uOthing to do with
I it. If on account of tho silver question
trade was depressed, its revival should
he general and immediate. The real
reason for tbe depression was the unset
tled state of the country consequent on
the change of administration and the
probability of a change in tbe financial
policy.
"The Democratic party has abandoned
the intention of adopting free trade.
They will give aB much free trade as
possible, but they must have money to
carry on the government. The reve
nues? have seriously decreased, and if
the tariff is abolished an income tax
should be levied, whicb would be a most
obnoxious measure.
"I believe McKinley will carry Ohio
by a large majority. lowa is against
free trade and Massachusetts aUo.
"In my opinion we should have
an international financial policy,
but I am afraid it is only a dream,
as tbe difference in the governments,
despotic, monarchic and republican,
would seem to preclude tbe possibility
iof arriving at such an agreement. Trade
ia rapidly reviving and will continue to
revive now that it has been decided to
make no material change in the tariff.
Manufacturers will commence repro
duction.
"The fight between McKLilley and
Neal, is a fair and square one between
tbe apostle of protection and the apostle
of free trade. Ohio is one of tbe greatest
manufacturing states, aud its voice may
be taken as reflecting the industrial
centers of population in the country."
IN THE OLD BAY STATE.
It Is Hoss and Host aa to Which Will
Win at the Polls.
Boston, Nov. 6.—A strictly indepen
dent and unprejudiced opinion on to
morrow's election is hard to find. But
a careful tanvaßß among the politicians
disloses that the scale is apparently tip
ping towards Republican success. Tbe
i main fight is over the election of
governor, and as the candidates, John
E. Rnssell, Democrat, and Frederick
Greenhalge, Republican, are about,
equally popular to fight is
largely on party lines. Both old
partieß have been working as never be
fore. The Republican state committee
announced a reward today of $100 for
the detection of any case of illegal
voting. The Populists have been Eaw
ing wood but not saying much, and
everyone who has given them a thouuht
admits that they will make a substantial
gain from the ranks of both parties.
The Prohibitionists aro not Beriously
taken even as an eventful possibility.
BOTH EXPECT TO WIN.
Democrat" end ltepublloana Kqnally
Confident In New York,
New York, Nov. 6.—ln New York
Btnte both Democrats and Republicans
have confidence in the success oi their
respective parties. Despite the severe
criticisms to which Judge Maynard, the
Democratic candidate, has been sub
jected, the Democratic leaders express
the belief that he will carry Ihe state by
from 10,0C0 to 20,000. The Republicans
say tbey have an excellent chance to
win.
IN THE BUCKEYE STATE.
An Overwhelming M»jorlty Predicted
for Ohio* Sweet William.
Cincinnati, 0., Nov. 6.—The eve of
tbe etste election finds the Republicans
confident of an overwhelming plurality
for Governor McKinley. The weather
today was favorable and the outlook for
TWELVE PAGES.
tomorrow is good. The Democrats ex
pect to carry this county and Cuyahoga
for the legislature. In this county there
is reason ior thiß, in the fact tbat an
independent ticket has been nominated.
The campaign in the northern part of
the state closed at Toledo tonight, where
Senator Sherman addressed a large
crowd, and at Cleveland where Governor
McKinley spoke to a large gathering.
TROUBLE IN NEW JERSEY.
Good Prospects for an Election Klot at
Camden.
Camden, N. J., Nov. 6.—There is greet
excitement in this city tonight. Sheriff
West, on tlie application of a number of
citizens, appointed 500 deputy sheriff*.
When this became known, the police
commissioners.decided to appoint 500
special policemen to meet the deputy
sheriffs. For fear of Berious trouble,
Colonel Cooper ordeied a guard placed
on the Sixth regiment armory, after
barricading the windows and doors and
concealing the ammunition in the
building. The military has been or
dered to be in readiness at a moment's
call. The court of common pleas wan in
session during the entire day and closed
at 6 o'clock without ordering any names
stricken from the alleged padded regis
try lists.
IN PENNSYLVANIA.
It Is Only a ijueatlon or How Large a
Majority.
Philadelphia, Nov. 6.—As far as the
election tomorrow ia concerned, the
only question to be decided is how
large the majority for the Republican
etate ticket will go. The Democrata
concede it to be 50,000; sanguine Re
publicans claim 100,000, and conservative
Republicans are confident that their
majority will reach at leaat 75,000.

Chicaoo, Not. 6.—Tbe wrangle over
the election of a mayor pro tern, wae
settled tonight by the choice of Alder
man George ii. Swift, be receiving 62
votes to 5 for Alderman McGilien, one
blank being cast. The Democratic ald
ermen, who met early in the day but
were unable to get a quorum owing to
I the absence of the Republicans, re
'■ mained in the council chamber until
the time of the regular meeting this
evening, in order to keep McGilien,
their man, in the chair, on the plea that
the original meeting, of which he was
chairman, had not adjourned. The Re
j publicans, who had been secreted in a
room a square from the city hall, to
keep out of the clutches of the sergeant
at-arms, marched over at 7:30 this
evening. The leaders of both factions
quickly got together and it wae decided
to avoid a repetition of Saturday's
scenes. Everything was wiped off the
slate and a new vote taken. McGilien
was chosen chairman on motion of a
Republican alderman. He appointed
the same teller as Saturday, aud a bal
lot was taken. When the count was
completed it was found that some face
tious alderman had cast two votes, so
the ballot was thrown out and another
taken, with the result as above stated.
Swift was then sworn in. A special
election for mayor to fill out the unex
pired portion of Carter Harrison's term,
will be held next month.
GONE TO THE JURY.
Nellie Horton'e Fate Trembling in the
Balance.
San Fkancisco, Nov. 6. —At 4 o'clock
this afternoon the cbbo of Nellie Horton,
who is charged with the murder of
Charles Hagen, a telegraph operator,
was given to tho jury. At the close of
the trial Miss Horton again went into a
fit of hysteria, becoming so bad that
Judge Wallace would not send her back
Ito the county jail, but ordered that tbe
prisoner be given into the custody of
her sister, Mrs. Cumminge, to be cared
for. At 10 o'clock the jury ia still out,
and Mies Horton ie at her sister's home
under tbe guard of a policeman.
At 11 o'clock tho jury were taken to
the Baldwin botel and locked up lor the
night. It is reported tbat seven stood
out for acquittal.

Washington, Nov. 0. —Although con
gress amended tbe Geary net so a» to
allow Chinese six months more within
which to register, it adjourned without
making an appropriation to carry out
the provisions of tho act. Tbe chair
man of the committee on eppropriatioi s
had cognizance of the necessity of the
treasury department's need of money
to carry out the law, and it is prob
able if the urgent deficiency bill
had been passed v clause appropriating
enough money lo at least begin opera
tions, would have been inserted in the
bill. As it is, registrations under the
act will not begin until an appropriation
is made. Meanwhile tbe internal reve
nue bureau of the treasury department
will make all its preparations,
and as soon as money ia availa
ble, it will be prepared to
assign ita officers so tbat they can begin
work at once. The bureau has assur
ances that an effort will be made to g-t
a bill through in the early days oi the
session so that the work of registration
will not be long deferred. It is said ail
the Chinese now in the country, approx
imating 100,000, can be registered in 60
days if they promptly take advantage
of the opportunity.
THE SILVER FIGHT.
A Rumor That Voorheea Will Introduce
a free Coinage Bill.
Washington', Nov. 6. —There are ra •
more that Voorhees will introduce a fre i
coinage silver biil at the opening of the
regular session. Voorhees decline! to
talk about the matter, but it is pointed
out tbat he always has been a silver
man. He declared during the debate on
tbe repeal bill that he was no lees nt
friend of eilver than always. At any
rate, it is thoroughly understood th»t
the silver question was not shelved by
the passage of the repeal bill. On the
contrary, tbe silver men say thn the fight
is only begun. When congrois assembh ■
they propose to keep it well to
| the front in connection with every great
issue between the partiee, from tariff to
repeal of the federal election laws.
Every stage of the tariff discussion
will be punctuated by pertinent queries
by the silver men, tending to prove
that it was the demonetizing of silver,
and not the McKinley tariff, which
caused the financial depression. In
deed, it is intended that the eilver men
shall act nB a b9(iy oi obstructionists, an
did the Parnellltes in parliament, until
silver shall receive a bearing.
