The George W. Childs
Stopped by a Reve
nue Cutter.
Cannon Brought Into Play to
Compel the Fugitive to
Boarded by Government Officers
While En Route From Key
West to Jamaica.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 21.— A
cablegram from Key West, Fla., to the
Times-Union says: ' »
This city was greatly excited this after
noon by hearing reports of cannon and it
was soon learned that the revenue cutter
McLane was firing on the tug George W.
Childs, which left this morning. Soon
after leaving the Collector of Customs,
upon information of the Spanish Consul,
ordered the McLane to overtake the Childs
and bring her back to port. It is rumored
that a deckhand by the name of William
Lynch, who was shipped at Jamaica, had
furnished the Consul with information to
the effect that she was bound on a filibus
tering expedition.
Lieutenant Hay says that the signals
were set for the Childs to heave-to, but no
attention was paid to them, and seeing no
chance of overtaking her two Eolid shots
and one shell were fired before she came
about. She was boarded by a crew from
the cutter, with Lieutenant Hays in com
mand, and brought into port about 3
Captain Swain of the Childs is very in
dignant at being fired upon and says that
he knows no reason why such action
should be taken. He says that he was
properly entered for his trip to Jamaica,
and while some slight irregularities did
exist in his crew list it was owing to the
fault of his brokers at Philadelphia and
had been settled at the Custom-house here.
He sailed from Jamaica on ;June 12 and
after touching at Point Salina and Barra
hena for repairs sailed for Key West,
where he arrived on the 3d. He was
ordered to Tortugas to be fumigated and
after remaining there seven days came
back to Key West. He said that yesterday
about noon he cleared his tug for New
York, having first surrendered his register
and taken out his enrollment and coasting
licenses, and., that shortly before leaving
the assistant engineer reported to him that
he saw a party offer Lynch some money
and he was informed by Lynch that it was
$200 to corroborate what the fireman had
reported and.that his answer was that he
knew nothing and could say nothing. The
captain sent a deckhand shipped at this
port to find out the person who was talk
ing to Lynch. He returned, statine that

Campos Repulsed by His
HAVANA, Cuba, July Further de
velopments have been made public of the
recent battles between insurgents and Gov
ernment troops between Manzanillo and
Bayamo. '
Captain-General Martinez Campos left
Manzanillo for Bayamo with 1000 troops.
On June 30 his force was ambushed by
7000 insurgents near Valenzuela. The
Spanish forces were under the command
of Brigadier-General Santocildes. who was
the military commander of the Manzanillo
district. The Spanish troops fought
bravely, again and again repelling the
fierce charges of the rebels. It was
thought that the principal object of the
attack was to secure General Campos. The
troops formed a hollow square about him,
thoroughly determined that he should not
be taken unless it was over their dead
The battle lasted seven hours. * During
one of the charges General Santocildes was
killed. General Campos then took com
mand of the troops and finally succeeded
in defeating the rebels. The insurgents
left 500 dead and wounded on the field.
Among the dead were the leaders Rabi
and Moncada. The Government loss was
seventy-two killed, including two officers,
and a number wounded.

MADRID, Spain, July 21.— A dispatch
from Havana states that General Navarro

in a critical position in that city. Colonel
Aldane, with a battalion, is expected to ar
rive at Bayamo very shortly. A decisive
battle is imminent.

""Growlers." -.•,'C.'--
NEW YORK, N.Y., July 21.-Commis
sioner Roosevelt's ' ukase caused another
dry Sunday to-day. A man looking for a
drink had to be "solid" with some saloon
keeper or else went thirsty. Hotel guests
were the only exceptions— and a guest
meant anybody who ordered a meal. Every
police captain hustled to the extent of his
ability to keep saloons closed.
In uptown , cafes rooms ' were arranged
where old customers were served drinks
undisturbed, and at hotel cafes sandwiches
were ordered by "regulars' as a matter of
necessity. Big restaurants and drugstores
with soda. fountains were undisturbed, the
police confining their attentions to the
saloons. ';"■ i'V> -
West Side saloon-keepers did a "growler"
trade, which they regarded as safe. It was
in the old "tenderloin" district, in the
midst of a colored population. Here
nearly every family has at this season a
fine watermelon in the icebox Saturday
night. The luscious pails were scooped
out, the rinds preserved whole and used to
conceal "growlers." Into and out of one
saloon on Twenty-seventh street, near Sev
enth avenue, half a hundred watermelons
were carried by colored persons during the
day and not one was molested by the po
licemen. Considerable surreptitious beer
and liquor selling was done.

The Reds May Have Taken Revenge
for the Recent Defeat by
CHICAGO. 111., July 21.— A special
from Denver," Colo., says:
It is feared that a party of Princeton
students have fallen into the hands of the
Bannock Indians. Nearly two weeks ago
the students forming the geological expe
dition went through Union Pass, and since
telegrams have been received for them
without affording any means of delivery.
They were on their way to National Park,
and due on their return trip about the end
of July. They are in a dangerous country,
and if they are alive the fact remains that
the Government has recently stirred to
great activity, as orders were received
yesterday at Fort Washakie for the send
ing of troops. There are only forty-three
men at the post, and the expedition can
not be very formidable, but it is the"; best
that the army can do.
Reports from Jacksons Hole are that
there are fully 300 Indians assembled there
and of the number • there are fifty Sho
shones from the Wyoming reservation.
Another report from Fort Washakie says
that the two Indian police and judges
who were sent to Jacksons Hole nearly
two weeks ago have returned. They were
forcibly detained by the Bannocks and
had to escape by strategy.
Wyoming's Governor Discredits the Ru
mored Capture.
CHEYENNE, Wyo., July 21.— Anxious
inquiries were received here this evening
from Eastern friends of the nineteenth
annual geological survey from Princeton
College, now making a trip in Eastern
Wyoming. **, y"T; ; - „'
Governor Richards, to whom the mes
sages of inquiry were sent is sure that no
harm has befallen the students. The fight
between the settlers and the Bannock In
dians took place on July 4in the, Jackson
Hole" region, near (he western Wyoming
line , directly south of | the \ Yellowstone
National Park. , On July 5 the Princeton
students were in Lander, over 100 miles
from the trouble, and there they remained'
for several days. The country over which'
they were to travel is comparatively well
settled, and is within easy reach of the
Fort Washakie Post, where there are two
companies of United States infantry and a
number of Indian police.
It is believed here that there is no truth
in the reported massacre of the students,
or the War Department would have been
so informed and the executive of the State
uotiried that troops had been ordered out.
A definite report is expected to-morrow
from Adjutant-General Stitzer, who is in
the Jackson' Hole region making an inves
tigation of the troubles.

PRINCETON, N. J., July 21.— re
port that a Princeton geological expedition

Senator Blackburn In Wash

WASHINGTON, D. C.', July j 21.—Sec
retary J. C. S. Blackburn, a national figure
in the silver fight, returned to Washington
from Kentucky Saturday and Registered at
Page's, but. has thus far. maintained the
strictest secrecy as to the object of his
visit. It is believed by some that the chief
reason for his presence here is to expedite,
if | possible, the payment of . the sugar
bounty now v held back by Comptroller
Bowler. . * V . ■ •".' . .".... £"'j I
Senator . Blackburn was an ; advocate of
the measure in the Senate, 1 and it is ■ sup
iposed he is in Washington now at the re
quest of Slate .Senator Mar'in, wjfcb repre
sented the § planters' interests when the
measure was -'' pushed '^through Congress.
Comptroller Bowler is disposed to question
the constitutionality of"- the law, and asks
for a special legal hearing, all; of which is
annoying to the sugar people. Therefore
it is" hot unreasonable" to suppose that Sen-
tor Blackburn's presence here at this time
has some ! special bearing on the sugar
bounty payment. v/
It is probable also that matters con
nected with the Senatorial : canvass bring
Senator Blackburn to Washington. There
are rumors to the effect that some -of Sen
ator .Blackburn's friends in the depart
ments are in danger of dismissal because"
of their loyalty to the Kentucky advocate
of free silver, and it is said that the Senator
intends to learn the truth of these rumors
and protect his friends.' One story has it
that I. W. Hazen, Chief of the Secret Serv
ice division of the Treasury, who has won
the disapprobation of the administration
and Secretary Carlisle because of his close
friendship for ; Senator Blackburn, is
marked for removal. A high Treasury,

The Maria P Went Down Be

Carelessness of the Ortlgla's Off leers
Said to Have Caused the
LA SPEZZIA, Italy, July 21.-A ter
rible accident/ resulting in the loss of 148
lives, occurred near the mouth of , the
Gulf of . Spezzia to-day. At 1:30 o'clock
this 2 morning the ; steamers I Ortigia : and
Maria P ran into each other, and the latter
vetsel was so badly damaged that she sank
in a very short; time. ;. ' • ''^ s
' The Maria P. had on board, in addition
to her crew, 178 passengers bound from
Naples for the River Platte, by far the
larger part of whom were emigrants. The
night was pitch 'dark when the collision
occured, and the scene on board the sink
ing T steamer was heart-rending. Most of
the passengers were asleep in the -bunks at
time, and were awakened by the crash
ing of the steamer's plates, deck beams
and deck planks. - They were panic-stricken,
and rushed pell-mell on deck where they
ran hither and thither, calling upon the
saints to save them. .
From the reports of the disaster received
here it is impossible to determine whether
any attempt wwars r made by the Maria P to
clear' away and launch i her small boats to
attempt to rescue the passengers. Judg
ing from the accounts given by the excited
survivors it is 'surmised that the steamer
went down too quickly to allow of this
being done, though one boat got away.;
The blackness : of the night added to the
terror of' those on board, and it is under
stood that some of the passengers, crazed
by fear, jumped overboard. .'
The force of the collision was terrific.
The Ortigia struck the Maria P. squarely
on the starboard side, and her stem pene
trated the ill-fated steamer for .a distance
of eighteen feet. When she backed /out, a
great volume of water poured through the
orifice, and the vessel began, almost imme
diately to settle. : ){' : : :-> .. ,T : :;.,..■ .
\ No mention is made of the Ortigia lower
ing boats to attempt j a rescue of the im-
: periled passengers , 1 'of '?■ the > Maria"; «P.
Whether the former vessel was damaged
or not is not known. The survivors are in
such a mental condition that it is impossi
ble as yet to get any connected story, but
from the statements of .the crew it appears
that the disaster was caused by the Or- r
tigia. . ■„: .; .. "V. ,-.. .■ .
The crew of the Maria P . numbered sev
enteen. Of this number fourteen were
saved in the boat that gotclearof the ship.
This boat also saved the thirty passengers
who escaped drowning.
; The Ortigia on her previous voyage col
lided ''■' in this : same spot s with a French
steamer,' and this ' fact adds strength ;to
the belief that she was responsible for this
last disaster. . .-'
Admiral Minister of ', Marine, has
ordered an inquiry to be made - into the af
fair to place the responsibility.
The Maria P.,' was a schooner-rigged,
iron screw steamer of 722 gross and 457. net

and was 175 feet long, 27 feet 1 inch beam,'

A Triple Tragedy Which May Result in a
Lynching. ~_^
MEMPHIS, Tex*., July 21.— hat will
doubtless prove a triple murder by a negro
occurred in Perry County, south of Me
ridian, Miss.', last night. The victims were
Mrs. A. D. Hartfield and her two daughters,
14 and 10 years old respectively. !
The assault on the girls was made with
a hatchet while they were attending to the
cows ' and their screams; attracted ,- the
mother, -who was, upon her appearance,
shot three times. Mrs. Hartfield described
the negro . and he was identified as Tom
Johnson, but he has thus far avoided ar
rest. The assailant ransacked the house
for money and jewelry. The lynching of
him is certain to follow his arrest.
An '* Expected Clash Between Catholic
. Factions Fails to Materialize.
TOLEDO, Ohio, July 21.— Nothing out
of the ordinary occurred to molent the
Sabbath peace of St. Hedwigs Polish Cath
olic parish, where yesterday there were
every indications of a fierce i clash of the
factions opposing and supporting the ob
jectionable priest, Rev. S. J. Wilczorek.
To avoid the conflict that seemed immi
nent the latter did not hold the usual
services and kept aloof from his congrega
tion during the day. It-is now thought
that the difficulty between Father Wilcz
orek and his flock will be smoothed over,
though the influence of the head of the
diocese may be necessary.

here for me. If he' wants me, let him take
me from this place, the tabernacle of the
Most High. I will not go into a corner to
be arrested. Let the man have the cour

took his man. Dowie is arrested on the old

The 'Berlin Government Will Be
Permitted to Chastise the Of-
V fending Sultan.
BERLIN, Germany, July 21.— The Em
peror is making the most of his pleasure
trip to Sweden, losing no opportunity to
enjoy himself thoroughly. He reached
Hersosand ■on board the imperial yacht
Hohenzollern on Friday, and on Saturday
took a trip on an excursion steamer up the
River An^erman, the loveliest stream in
Sweden. He returned late in the after
noon, and enjoyed a dramatic entertain
ment on board the Hohenzollern in the
evening. His Majesty yesterday gave
orders to get everything ready on board
the Hohenzollern to sail at once, his trip
to the northward having ended. Through
out his trip he has declined to be regarded
as a State guest, and refused to coun
tenance any public demonstration in his
honor. He declined a formal reception at
the hands of the authorities, and spent the
greater part of the day while there in dic
tating dispatches. It is surmised from in
cidents that those dispatches relate in
some way to the situation in Bulgaria,
growing out of the murder of Stambuloff.
Whether or not the friendship of the
Emperor for King Oscar had the effect of
impressing the majority in ' the Swedish
Storting with the necessity for proceeding
with caution it is a fact that the tension
between the King ancj the Storting has
greatly .relaxed, and an effort is being
made to form a coalition Ministry, com
posed chiefly of Moderates. The King is
greatly gratified at finding that his oppo
nents have conceded the royal grants in
the shape in which he demanded them.
The only disturbing rumor now abroad
is that a committee of Radicals have pri
vately agreed to make a proposition in the
Storting for an extraordinary credit for
11,500,000 kroner for the purpose of buying
two ironclad warships, three torpedo-boats
? and a quantity of new rifles and ammuni
tion, and the construction of fortified posts
"at- Tdensberg, Christiansand, Bergen' and
Drontheim. j Whether or not this rumor is
correct in detail there is no doubt that
some such project is on foot. In the
meantime the Radicals are keeping very
quiet and abiding events.
The recent German and Dutch naval
demonstrations at Tangier, which were'
forced upon both by outrages committed
upon German and Dutch subjects in
Morocco, seemed likely to cause a serious
quarrel with France. The murder of a
German trader named ■ Rockskop and the
plundering of the Dutch brig Marie Anna
a short time ago led 1 at first to diplomatic
representations which proved to be futile.
These were followed by the presence of
four German and two Dutch warships in
Moorish waters, whereupon the Sultan
promised to execute the murderers or
somebody else and also to pay an indem
nity. This having been reported to the
Berlin Government orders were imme
diately sent to German warships to remain
in Moorish waters until both the German
and the Dutch indemnities were paid. The
German Consul at Tangier acted in behalf
of the Dutch Government in the affair and
the fact obviously inspired the recent
articles in the Paris Journal dcs Debata
warning Germany to keep her hands off
Morocco if- she desired to maintain good
relations with France.
. The Yossische Zeitung, replying to these
articles, called upon the Berlin Govern
ment to give a fitting reply to the inso
fence of . France if the question should be
raised officially. Official communications
