THE HERALD LOS AKGELES, MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 3, 1895.—EIGHT PAGES MISSED A GREAT PRIZE The British Fleet Left Corinto Too Soon INVOICE OF WAR MATERIAL Arrived on an English Vessel and Was Landed Guns and Ammunition Enough for 5000 Nicaraguan Soldiers-It Was a Close Call for the War flaterial Associated Press Special Wire. MANAGUA, Nicaragua, May 18. via. New York, June 2. — If the British bad occupied Cor ill to a little longer than they did they would have been able to capturo a ltritish|steamer, tho Debay, which ar rived there two days ago, loaded with a full supply of modern, improved held artillery, rifles and ammunition for about 6000 officers ana soldiers of tho Nicara gua!, army, and Admiral Stephenson would thus have been able to collect the 15,000 pounds claimed by Great Britain as indemnity from Nicaragua without an> difficulty, The British warship sailed away on May 15th and this most valuable cargo arrived at Corinto on May Pith under the British Hag, to tho great de light of the Nicaraguan authorities who feared that the supply of war material would fall into the hands of the British It is considered moiti than likely that Admiral Stephenson would have seized and detained the Do bay until tho indem nity was paid and there is a great deal of rejoicing hero at its escape, for it would have made an admirable substitute lor the port and customs duties of Co rinto which the British admiral was pre vented from collecting by the fact that the Nicarmigan government declared the port closed shortly after it was occupied by the British, Nobody here doubts that bad the British admiral captured this supply of war material ana satisfied Great Britain's claim against Nicaragua by its sale, that the act would have so tbrouoghly humiliated the present gov ernment of Nicaragua as to have caused its overthrow at nneo by a revolution. It is not doubted that Admiral Stephen son could havo taken possession of the Debay'fl cargo, in spite of the fact that the steamer was , under the British Hag. as the win* material was purchased in Germany in 1894 bj the present govern ment of Nicaragua. Then, again, people here insist that Great Britlan was desirous of obtaining a coaling station on the island of Corinto and another coaling station on Corn is land, near the Atlantic entrance of the proposed canal, through Nicaragua, and then Great Britain wolud have been able to control both entrances of the ap proaches of the canal. It is claimed tho mtenti' n of C-reat Britain to cause the overthrow of the present government of Nicaragua and to placd in power native Nicaraguans of her own chousing, and there are some prominent natives of that country who are very fond of Great Brit ain. It is claimed by the irritated here that Admiral Stevenson and several of his oflicers while at Corinto on April 3t>tbi just before they actually took armed possession of the port and island, pub licly d — rrmny persons, among wliom was iv,. , Tisdale, a,United States citizen and the agent for till Pacific Mail Steamship company, that tho Mon roe doctrine so often referred to in the United States pr*"»B and by the people is a myth; that the i'mted States would not, and could not if they desired, en force it, and it. is added that the British oilieers asserted that the occupation oi Corinto was intended to test the ques tion. It should be said in conclusion, however, that it has been denied that there was any truth in the story that tho British oflicers made any such state ments. The export of the coffee crop of If9l from this country is now sc nearly com pleted that a fair estimate can be made of tlie aggregate, and it is believed that it will amount to 16,000,000 pounds, against about 18,000,000 last year. Tho season for gathering coffee and prepar ing for tlic market has been very favor able and the quality Is unusually irood. The price in Kurope and in* the United States for good to best quality is from 12 to 22 cems gold per pound* The export tax is 2 cents Nicaraguan currency per pound, if exported from San Juan del Sur or via San Juan del Norto liver. This one-half per pound difference in favor of Corinto, although seriously against tlie interests of many of tho coffee estates in ♦he departments of Choutols, Cranada and Biva, is for tho purpose of influenc ing shipments to be made over tho na tional railroad, extending from the town of Granada to the port of Corinto. The aggregate )f this tax to the government of Nicaragua this year will boabout $245, --000. or at the present rate of exchange about, 9132.000 gold. This money is usu ally advanced to tne government by bank, and exporters go to that bank for their tax certificates and permission to ship. Mercantile and all otner kinds of business in Nicaragua appear to havo revived to their former activity since the evacuation of Corinlo by the British army and many of tho soldiers, volun teers and enlisted men in tho Nicaraguan army lor defense against tho British ad vance into her territory havo returned to their usual occupations. Tlie government, however, is actively preparing to subniit to arbitration all questions at issue be tween Nicaragua ami (rreat Britain that have aiisen out of Nicaragua's successful efforts in 1888 and 1H!)4 to maintain her sovereignty over tne Mosquito reserva tion. JAPANESE METHODISTS Dedication of a Church by Little Brown Men in San Francisco BAN FRANCISCO.

ONLY FORTY-POUR MILLION Treasury Officials estimate the Deficit tor i the Fiscal Year WASHINGTON, June 2.—Treasury j officials, ate now confident that the fiscal ! year one month hence will show a deficit j of not more than $44,000,000, and possibly DOt more than $4:1,000,000. which is at least $5,000,000 less thun was expected j only a few weeks ago, and $3,000,000 or i $4 000.000 less than tlie present figures. It is shown that the pensions payment during June will be at least $■_'.">,000,000 less than for May, and that the payment on account of interest will also be reduced $1,500,000, With an increase of the inter nal revenue of $I*ooo,ooo on account of special liquor, tobacco and oleomargarine licenses, which must be paid before July Ist. and very material reductions in pension and iiiterest payments, it is con hdently expected that 'next month will show a small surplus, with the deficit further reduced to at least $44,000,000. The month of July, however, is likely to see the deficit increased by at least 110.000,000, as that month's interest pay ments will aggregate about 17,000,000, Disbursements in every branch of the government are usually much heavier in July than in fany other month, so that without the receipts are grealty increased tho deficit on August Ist. next, will not likely fall short of $05,000,000 for tho thirteen months.

Exploration Companies Associated Press Special Wire. SAN FftANOISCO, Juno 2.—lrwin C. Stump believes that the eagerness for in vestmen in mines which now prevails in London, Fans and Berlin will soon ex tend to New York and spread over this country. He looks lor a genuine boom in mining properties in tho United States. As lie is at the focus of mining enter prise and thought in New York, his opinion is of value. 'I would not express an opinion of that kind." said Mr. Stump, "unless I had some foundation for it. And I will ex plain to you why I Jthfnk that a great deal of money will he invested in Ameri can mines within a slioit time. Tnere's at present as gre.*t excitement in London over mining properties as there was iv San Francisco in '7b' over the Oomstock. Men with money want mining property. This eagerness "for mining properties is not confined to London, but is quite as keen in l'aris and Berlin. In fact, mines are now the favorite investment through out Kurope. Wo had a similar boom in California during tho Conistock days, but iho excitement of those days and the in vestments then made aro insignificant compared to that which is now going on in Ljndon. "Kurope is now engrossed with the properties in Africa and Australia. The efforts to mine for gold in the new fields in Australia will in all probability be a failure because of the lack of water there. In ipiest will now he confined to Africa. The system of developing these proper ties is as tollotvs: "An exploration company was formed, of which the llothsohilds are tlie chief spirits and Cecil Khodes the promoter in Africa. This company, as tho name implies, explores the country for mines. The stock of iron mines is placed on the exchange in London for sale, and this tlie people all over Kurope aro buying. 'Now as t. America tnere is no doubt that an exploration company will be formed in New York on the same lines as those in London. It would, doubtless have been organized this month had cer tain gentlemen remained in New York. Senator Jones is deeply interested in tho project and U. <>. Mil s and John \V. Mackey will invest in it. Indeed. New York is quite ail ready to take up min ing investments as London or Paris. All the II oney needed to carry on a work in tho I'nited States similar to that wtiieh the ttothschllds are backing in A leu can be had in New York in a short time. 'The exploration company, which will be organized in New York in a few wecics or months, will operate in this way: In the tirst place it will have a very large working capital. If a mine owner comes with a mine lor sale to the company ho will bo requested to pay for an examina tion of the property by one of tho experts of the company, if the expert's report is satisfactory the capital will be put into the property and develop it for itself or it will sell it. charging a commission. Or, if the mine owner wants enough money to put up a mill the company will do that and take a sharo of the returns. Or the company will tako a proeity, with a view of opening it up to see what it contains, if it is not satisfactory after a certain amount of work has been done it will be dropped and the loss accepted. "It will be the aim also of the com pany to list tb'.' stock of mines on tho ex change and offer it for sale to the public. "Now York is eager for this movement. The great excitement in Kurope over mines has extended to this country and tlie people in the east are ready to invest their money in mines. It is my opini jn that this country is a better lield for a mining boom than Africa or Australia. Wo have good mining territory in New Mexico, Ariona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Washington, There are innumerable prospects there which will pay a com pany to explore. "New York is.'now the center of min ing interests In the United States. There are ten mines offered to sale there now to one 111 San FFrancisco, and hardly a day passes that three or four mine own ers do not call at my office with a prop erty for sale. If an exploration company takes bold of these properties, examines them carefully by a competent expert and thon publishes his opinion of them, peo ple In the east will have more confidence in them and will put their money in them. "I th nk this movement in American mines will begin in tho fall."

PRICE FIVE CExfTS THE POLICE ARE RETICENT San Francisco's Woman Murder Wrapped in Mystery MISS HARRINGTON'S MURDER Ex-Senator Buck Will Die From Hit Injuries Very Pew Additional Facta In Connection With the Atrocious Crime—A Very Singular Tragedy Associated Press Special Wire SAN FRANCISCO, June 2.—The mur. der of Miss Harrington yesterday iv her house on KHis street and the tragic fate of ex-State Senator L. \V. Buck, who was thrown from a cart while on his way to San Francisco to explain hie connec tion with the woman to the police, were the talk of the city today. Ex-Senator Buck's physicians said to night that tho injured man could "not possibly survive and his death is only a question of n tow hours. When pitched of out the buggy Mr. Buck struck the ground on bis head, fracturing the skull. While tho police will not say definitely that they suspect Buck of the murder, their actions lead to the belief that they think he knows something about it. It has been proved that Buck was a con stant caller on her and had taken Miss Harrington driving and to various re sorts. The police say that the murder was committed by some one intimately acquainted with Miss Harrington and her habits. Whoever committed the mur der let himself in at the front door with a key or rang the bell. If Miss Harring ton ict tho man in it was undoubtedly some one witn whom she was on inti mate terms, as she was only partially dressed when the murder was committ ted. The police searched through the papers found in Miss Harrington's room in the hope of finding some clew. When asked what the result of the search had been Captain Lees said that he had found certain evidence which he c.nild not make public at tin's time. A conference of detectives was held and at its close Chief of Police Crowley, ac companied by a detective, went to Oak land, where Senator Buck resides. The detectives have investigated the statement, made by Senator Buck's family that he was at home at the time the mnruer was committed. When ques tioner! as to the accuracy of this state ment the detective who made the inveoti gation avoided the question. Owing to lluck's. prom*nenoe and the fatal accident that befell him before ha had an opportunity to clear himself of tlie suspicions which have grown up against him, or explain his connection with Miss Harrinngton, the murder has created an amount of interest only ex ceeded by tho Kmanuel church horrors) of a few weeks ago. 2 Senator Buck l.as not regained con sciousness since the accident last night and if lie hail any explanation to offer it will probably never be known.
