the latter will b' aVgressors in that mat
ter. And this may allow the close margin
of the Republicans on joint ballot for Sen
ator to go uncontested in any of the close
countiei or beforet he Committee on Elec
tions in the. General Assembly.
Tncre is another * alleged movement
which is causing much more comment
and that is the" rumor that Governor
Bushnell will be brought out for . Senator
against Marcus 'A. 1 Hanna. Allen C.
Myers, one of the managers at Democratic
State headquarters, announced to-night
that Senator Hanna would never be elected
to the Senate on the close joint majority
that is claimed. Mr. Myers said if the
close" call on the Legislature went against
the Democrats in the offic al count of the
close counties, that th • Democrats in the
Legislature would join with a dozen or
more Republican members of that body
in ejecting Bushnell instead of Hanna to
the Senate. Governor Busbnell and ail
others involved ii this movement deny
any knowledge of it, or that they would
have anything to do with it.
At both the Republican and Democratic
headquarters o-n;^ht figures are being
substituted for the cams of last night and
tn-day. Chairman McConnvi'.le of the
Democratic State Committee concedes the
defeat of iii- State ticket, but states they
have reduced the Republican plurality ot
51,000 of last year by over one-half. Al
though others at Democratic State head
quarters concede that the Legislature will
be Republican on a close majority of one
or two, Chairman McConn villa does not
concede the control of the body to the
Republicans. After 11 p. m. he reviewed
the claims oi the Republicans on the Leg
islature. Mr. McConnville said the Repub
licans claimed the Legislature by To to 70.
He struck the Republicans from Wood*
and Nolle counties troin their list, also the
Senator from the Marion-Logan district,
and said these three changes would make
the Legislature stand 73 Democrats to 72
Republicans, and he would never give
either of these three doubtful members up
until the official count was completed.
He also Contests the election of two of
the twelve members from Cuyahoua
County, which wouFd make the Legisla
ture statu! 75 Democrats and 70 Repub
licans. Chairman McConnville says he
believes the D mocraiic representatives
were elected in three other counties which
he does not want -to name pending in
vestigation of alleged frauds. He charges
fraud in Noble and Wood counties and in
the Marion-Logan district. In the event
of the Republicans securing the Legis
lature on as close a margin as is now
claimed by them, and not conceded by the
Democrats, Chairman McConnville pre
dicts that Senator Ha ma will secure the
caucus nomination, but fail of election,
an that the session of the Ohio Legis
lature the coming winter will break the
record for factional lighting and disturb
ances of the session of the Legislature last
winter. There are rppjtts to-night
that certain antl-Hanna Republicans and
Democratic managers hive held confer
ences for a combine to bring out another
man if Busline I refuses to allow the use
of his name for Senator.
At Republican State headquarters to
ni:hi the list of Senatorial districts is
given, in which it is claimed the Republi
cans have 17 and the Democrats l!). The
only district disputed b.* the Democratic
managers is that which includes Marion
and Logan counties, and which would
make the Senate stand 16 Republicans
to 20 Democrats. The Republicans con
cede that the Democrats will have two
majority in the Senate.
The Republican State Committee claims
that ttie two representatives from Sum
mit, County are the only ones in doubt to
nieht, and that the returns show the
House to stand '8 Republicans, 49 Demo
crats and 2 doubtful, and that in their
claimsof 75 to 70, with a majority of five on
joint ballot, for Senator, they have so far
conceded Summit County to the Demo
crats, although they expect the official
count to give them at least one of the two
representatives from that county.
Unofficial bit complete returns show a
Republican plurality of 26,520 in Ohio.
. The four Republicans elected on the
fusion ticket for the House in Hamilton
County are: Charles F. Droste. John C.
Otis. Dr. R. W. Lane, Frank H. Kemper.
The Times-Star prints interviews with
all four, in which Kemper says he will
vote for the Republican caucus nominee;
Otis, that he will oppise Hanna, but is
otherwise non-committal; Lane, that he
is a free-silver man and will probably vote
with the Democrats on local measures,
and is unpledged lor Senatorial candi
dates; Droste, that he is tor free silver,
and will vote for a Senatorial candidate
who agrees with aim. Voight, the Re
publican fusion Senator, has not been in
terviewed.
MASSACHUSETTS
NOW IN LINE.
George Fred Williams Offers
a Few Remarks Upon His
Defeat.
EOSTON, Nov. 3.— The entire vote of
tne State, with the exception of the town
of Gosnold, was completed to-night, and
the returns give Woicott 165,370, Williams
Til 114. Everett 14.134.
Owing to the closeness of the vote in
the Second Hampden Senatorial District
the result was definitely ascertained to
day and it now appears that W. B.'Ma
honey D. is elected over D. H. Ives R.,
the incumbent. This makes the
Senate of 1898 stand 33 Republicans and
7 Democrats. The House remains un
changed. 132 Republicans, 51 Demo
crats, 6 Independents and 1 Prohibi
tionist.
George Fred William*, Democratic can
didate for Governor, has given out a state
ment on the election, in which he says:
"My views of yesterday's election in
Massachusetts are that radicalism under
the Democratic name has been strength
ened somewhat in its position and em
boldened in its course, and will continue
in the field a growing quantity to be
reckoned in the near future. The
lines «re ob/iously hardening as between
Republican conservatism and Democratic
policies of change and upheaval, and be
tween the two no room will evidently be
found for building up a leading opposition
to republicanism.
••What is here said of Massachusetts ap
piie vrith even greater force to the rest of
the country. The results there and iv
Massachusetts ought to be decisive of tne
insienificance of what is called the go
Democratic vote. The farce has ended in
Kentucky and it ought to be clear to the
little handful in Massachusetts that there
is no future possibility either for the
maintenance of an organization at the
hands of the Democratic party for these
gentlemen. ,
"To cut down Governor Wolcott's plu
rality nearly one-half in Massachusetts is
veiy satisfactory to me, though I am sorry
that our voters did not come more gener
ously to the polls.
"It must be remembered' that the Chi
cago platform has never been tested at the
tolls witn an organization behind it.
This y»ar the State Committee was not in
accord with the platform, while next year
we shrll perfect an organization, I trust,
s-upeiiir to any which the Democracy has
had in many years. We shall then, for
the first time, test the real strength of our
cause."
CHAUNCEY DEPEW
GROWS DESPONDENT.
He Says the Division ~of the
Forces Against Tammany
* - Was Fatal.
NEW YORK. ; Nov. 3.— The' Press says
that the new ate House of Assembly
will consist of 79 Republicans and 71
Democrats.
Chauncey M. Depew, who supported
Tracy, said to-day that the election re
sulted just as he fearei it would. ''We
made the best possible tight, but the hope
of a victory against Tammany with the
anti-Tammany forces divided is almost
futile. The wonderful showing made by
Mr. Low is surprising, to say the least.
"The election issue in New York has no
national significance; but. with an alarm
ing failing off in the Republican vote
in the State, with heavy losses in New
Jersey, Ohio and other States, the Repub
lican party is confronted with the incon
trovertible truth that Bryan and bimet
allism are not dead. It warns them that
they must lake steps at once, and em
phatically, to settle this currency ques
tion beyond any hope of reopening it."
COLORADO RESULTS
STILL IN DOUBT.
It Will Take the Official Count
to Decide Who Has
Won.
DENVER, Nov. 3.— The result cf yes
terday's election in this State is still in
doubt so far as the Justice of the Supreme
Court is concerned, and it will take t.e
official canvass to decide who has won.
The Times, which supported Hayt, candi
date of the Republicans and Silver Re-
i üblicans, claims his election by less than
1010. Returns and estimates so far re
cieved show Hayt 82 votes in the lead.
Counties yet to be heard from are divided
and some doubtful. The chairmen of the
Populist and Democratic parties claim
that the full returns will give their candi
date, Gabbert, from 1000 to 1500 majority,
In th'S (Arapahoe) county the entire
Silver Republican ticket was successful
except Borstadt for Sheriff. The Republi
cans claim his election, but the vote be*
tween him and Webb, Civic Federation
candidate, is so close that the official
figures will be necessary to decide it. The
county gave Hayt, for Supreme Judge, a
majority of about (3000. This is a little
mote than was received by any of the
candidates for county offices.
In a 1 the most populous counties the
Silver Republicans claim victory. In
Pueblo Count y their majorities range
irom 300 to 1300. In El Paso and Lake
counties the majorities have about the
same range From returns now in it ap
pears that Hayt and Gabbert each carry
the same number of counties.
The vote of the Republican (adminis
tration) party in this county was quite a
surprise to many, reaching nearly 5000 in
a total of 25,000. The leaders of the party
claim that their vote for Hayt was far in
excess of that for their county ticket, the
voters realizing the impossibility of elect
ing the latter.
The Rocky Mountain News will print
to-morrow morning a statement g.ying
what they claim are reliable returns Irom
near y all the counties in the State, which
together with Republican estimates f-ora
the others give Abbott a majority over
Haytol4C6J. The News makes the posi
tive claim that Gabbert's majority will
not be below these figures.
The Denver Republican still claims the
election of Hayt by a small majority, but
says the i llicittl count may be necessary
to decide the matter. Late returns seem
to indicate the e'ec.ion of Borstadi, Silver
R„ for Sheriff by probably not to exceed
twenty-five voles.
IOWA MAJORITIES
JUST CUT IN TWO.
The State H s Done Very
Well for an Off-Year
Election
DES MOINES, lowa. Nov. 3.— The re
turns by counties are nearly air in now.
Chairman McMillan of the Republican
State Committee has complete returns
from ninety-four counties, and estimated
from the five remaining counties, and
figures a plurality for Shaw R. of about
31.782. He thinks that these figures will
vary but little from the corrected returns
when the five estimated counties come in.
The plurality may be set down as above
31,000 and below 32,000. Chairman Walsh
of the Democratic State Committee has
given outno formal statement. He thinks
that later returns may reduce the plural
ity for Shaw to 20,000.
The Republican plurality last year was ;
65.552, and according to Republican esti- {
mates it is, therefore, just cut in two.
Two years ago it was 59,000 for Drake for
Governor. Then the Populists had a
separate ticket. If the Populist vote be I
subtracted the Republicans would have a j
large: plurality this year than two years ;
ago. The Legislature is safely Republi- j
can. The Senate has fifty members, of ]
which thirty-eight are Republicans and |
twelve Populists and Democrats. The
House has 100 members, of whom the Re- |
publicans have elected sixty-one and the
Populist and Democrats thirty-nine, ;
These figures are subject to slight altera- j
tions, probably to the advantage of the
Democrats.
The Repuqlicans lost four members of
the Senate and seventeen in the Hone,
compared with the last Legislature, which
wasoverwhemin_'ly Repub ican.
SAME OLD STORY
IN PENNSYLVANIA.
It Is an Off-Year Republican
Majority, but Large
Enough.
PHILADELPHIA. Nov. The com-
lite vote of Pennsylvania is as follows:
For Stata Treasurer— B -acorn R. 364.537,
Brown D. 240,216, Swallow Pro. 116,153,

Dr. allow, the Prohibition candidate,
has a plurality in ten of the sixty-seven
counties.
The total vote for State Treasurer i«
734,259. as compared with 767,087 in 1895
and 1,194,355 in 1896.

• A mate on the State.
LINCOLN, Nebb , Nov. 3.— Returns dur- '
ing the day and early in the evening
simply confirmed what: was evident at
midnight last night, that the fusion State
ticket had been elected by a plurality fully
as large as that given to Bryan last
year, if not larger. Early in the after
noon it was generally admitted at Repub
lican headquarters that the State was
lost,' and Secretary Sizer of the State com
mittee emphasized the common belief at
9 o'clock to-night when he authorized the
following statement to ba made to the
Associated Press: /,

publican State Committee point to the l

election of Sullivan (fusion) for Supreme
Judge by a plurality of from 500} to 10, COO.
Returns show that Republican candidates
for Regents of the University ran ahead
of Post forjudge and we will not yet con
cede their defeat."
Chairman Edmisten of the fusion com
mittee s«itt he had no reason to change
his estimate of last night of 20,000 plu
rality for the entire fusion ticket. Every
populous county but two shows a fusion
gain, which warrants the declaration that
fusion has carried the State by 12.000 at
least.
KENTUCKY MEN
HAVE LOST INTEREST.
It Is Only a Question of the
Sze cf the Majority
in That State.
LEXINGTON, Kt.. Nov. 3.— The head
quarter* of the Democratic State chair
man were not open to-night and no fur
ther returns were received. There is little
interest in the size of Shactleford's ma
jority, as it is conceded to be somewhere
;n the neighborhood of 15,000. The Dem
ocrats have won or increased their vote
everywhere. The effor.s at luslon be
tween the Republicans and gold-standard
Democrats in local contests tailed signally,
chiefly because the negroes would not sup
port the fusion tickets, a large portion of
them selling tneir votes to the Democrats,
it is charged, or slaying away from regis
tration or from the polls for pay. The
Democrats hay.* secured a go*. d majority
in the Legislature, but us a Senator l- not
to be elected until alter another election is
held for representatives, Blackburn's
election to succeed Senator Lindsay may
not be accomplished, although Blackburn
is jubilant over the victory ol his party
and very hopeful of again being returned
to the Senate.
Goebel, State Senator from the Coving
ton district, a gold standard man who
posed as a siiverite and led Blackburn's
tight for re-election, goes «to the Senate
again by a very small margin.

Victory of Tammany in New
York a Blow to Free In
stitutions
LONDON, Nov. The elections in the
United States continue to overshadow ail
other news in the English newspapers.
The Sun of this city, of which newspaper
Harry Marks nas editorial control, says: " 'The
dog returned to his vomit,' is the text we
recommend pious New York to hang on parlor
walls. The chief city ot a great people must
see Us municipal offices filled with men who
should be tilling cel.s in the penitentiary. New
York has fallen like rotten fruit into the
hands of the boodlers; but the New Yorkers
may console themselves with saying that every
city, as every land, has the government it
deserves."
The Evening News remarks: "Croker has
brought off his tip and has won the race,
show. that he is more to be fearea in his
natural arena of pontics than on the race
course. The population of the second great
est city in the world has elected its ruler, and
th* morning after election the problems occu
pying his mind did not relate to the govern
ment ol ihecity but the squaring regarding
his supporters. The experiment of Democracy
as seen in lull growth in New York seems to
have its backs as el. as its advantages."
The St. James Gazette says: "The reason
Americans allow themselves to be dominated
by a clique whose members wou d on this
side of the Atlantic sooner or later find them
selves in the criminal dock. Is that American
politicians indulge In politics solely ior what
they can make out of it, and until America
finds time to produce a class who will give
their time to public affair- without expecta
tion of pecuniary reward. Tammany will con
tinue its victories in New York."
j Commenting on the allegation that the 'best
| classes' hold aloof from parties, the Glob;
I says: "It leaves the Government of one of the
I greatest countries In the world at the mercy
of a mob and an unscrupulous demagogue
[ who knows how to bend that mob to nil will.
The effect upon the loreign policy of the coun
| try is often deplorable, 11. at large numbers
j oi decent, sensible people are utterly Without
sympathy for the brusque eye of Olney and
the fatuities of Sherman we all know, but un
happily they utterly fail to make their voices
heard above the rli:] oi the New Yi.k slush."
'the Pall Mail linzet says: "Such an or
ganization as Tammany could not exist in
Loudon. A in '> it or an organization once
pr .yen guilty of corruption could never re
turn to power. Tammany, under the leader
ship of Croker, has done so in » manner which
has just offered food for serious thought even
In a city so accustomed to bad government as
New York. Much as we wish the best fortune
to Greater New York, we cannot congratulate
lis citizens on the manner In which they have
contributed their share toward achievement
of such an undesirable result."
j The Westminster Gazette, in its comment*
on the same subject, remarks: "The victory
of unprincipled government, obtained by un
principled methods, is a grave disappointment
to all believers in free institutions."
The G obe says: "When the fortunes of the
wigwam are in the ascendant, shameless cor
ruption rules supreme. Judge and police
alike owe secret allegiance to an authority
with far greater powers of making or marring
their fortutiis than the Government of the
United States."
Sketch ing the history of Tammany, the Globe
says: "When Croker became boss It had re
gained much of its. lost Influence. Croker la
perhaps the most notable in many product
of our time. 'A splendid organizer ami an in
domitable worker, he possesses to a marked
degree the taciturnity which. made I'arnell
successful as a leader, Steering clear of the
personal venalities of Tweed, Croker has re
vived the other traditions of the Worth re
gime and has made Tammany once-more a po
litical engine of the first magnitude."
BERLIN, No*. 3.— Th»» Tageblatt. com
menting on the New York election, de
plores the victory of Tammany, "as it
places undesirable elements of the Irish
on top." and concludes: "The victory in
New York will , have a sinister effect
throughout the world, for it means that
the aw'akenini? desire of municipal re
form fans received a terrific setback."
The Vossische Zdtung says that "it
cannot be denied that corruption has
triumphed.'
Tne Lokal Anzeiger asserts '.hat it sym
pathizes with "all honest people on t.e
side of Tammany's adversaries."
The National Zeltung says: "It is a
small wonder that the Republicans were
defeated. George's adherents evidently
nocked to the Tammany banner. The
failure to defeat Tammany is a point
scored against the Washington adminis
tration." - •
PARIS, Nov. 3.— The Temp*, comment
ing on the election, says: "The result of
the election is deplorable for New York
and the cause of Democracy." '
The Journal dcs Debats says: "Once
again is dis; laved the incapacity of hon
est citizens of New York to organize and
shake off the dominion ot the political in
triguers who exploit and dishonor muni
cipal politics."

BLANCO'S CHILLY RECEPTION.
Proc amotion of Cuba's New Governor-
General Causes, Dissatisfaction
Everywhere.
HAVANA (via Key West, Fla.), Nov.
3.— Marshal Blanco's, reception has been
marked by coldness on all sides. This is due
to tbe great dissatisfaction caused by his
proclamation, which has disgusted all par
ties. A former director of the board of
the Autonomist party said to-day to the
correspondent of the Associated Press:
"We sincerely hoped that we ' would
have autonomy, but now . we feel that we
are not to bare it. Blanco policy of
amalgamating all political parties will
not result as he expected. He is afraid to
put only autonomists in office, and we
refuse to side with, the conservatives and
the military elements. We will have only
semi-autonomy, which will serve to in
crease the general dissatisfaction. By in- j
suiting us in his proclamation. Marshal
Blanco has placed all talk of surrender on
our part out ot the question." .
There is no public sentiment in favor of
Blanco's policy. Everybody is dissatis
fied and annexation seems to be the only
solution of the Problem. The Conserva
tives charge he Government with plecinss
the rule of the i land in the hands oi au
tonomies and ex-rebels, and predict that
there will be a return to Weyler's policy
when the Government is convinced that
autonomy is a failure.
THAT RUSSIAN CHURCH HORROR.
Further Details of the Awful Calamity
, That Resulted From an Alarm
of Fire.
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 3.— Further
details have been received of the tern be
casualty which took place on October 26
last. in the village church at Kheiloff.Jn
the Kiz'off district, on the western coast
of the Crimea, when an alarm of fire was
raised and a panic ensued, resulting in the
death of seventy-four persons and the se
vere injury of 160 others.
It appears that the alarm of fire was due
to the lighting of candles at the moment
when tho windows were opened to aliow
the clouds of vapor to escape from the
packed and steaming congregation.
MAY NOT CONSULT
WITH HOMEOPATHS
Santa Clara Medical Society
Lays Down Law for
Allopaths.
Adop's Resolutions Prohibiting
Membars From Advertising
Sp claltles.
Special D'apatch to The I'AU.
SAN JOSE, Nov. 3.— At a spirited meet
ing if the Santa Clara Mcd cal Society
this even ng resolutions were offered dv
Dr. South worth interpreting article IV,
section 1, of the Code of Ethics of the
American Medical Association as prohib
iting allopath physicians from consulting
with homeopaths or eclectics for a fee..
These resolutions were bitterly opposed
by many of those present, as it was
claimed by them that the present code of
ethics was sufficient on the subject, and
that it was fo'ly in the local organization
to take a step which the American Medi
cal Association at its session in San Fran
! Cisco in 1891 had by a large majority de
clined to act upon.
The older members of the local society,
however, insisted upon the passage of the
resolution, as they claimed the National
Code of Ethics was ambiguous and its
meaning suould be clearly defined and
lived up to by those desiring membership
in the society. After a warm discussion,
In which the term "bigotry" figured
prominently, the resolution was adopted
by a vote of 17 to 7. .
Resolutions were then adopted pro
hibiting members of the society from ad
vertising specialties.
Several cf the members gave notice that
they would not accept the interpretation
of the local society regarding consulta
tions with homeopaths and eclectics, but
no action upon their position was taken.

CHICAGO/ Nov. 3.— James Anglin. a j
rich. Montana miner, to-day became the

him $92 600. Martin McHigh and Han
kins, the former owners, had not heard
from Anglin since the deal was made,
and, • hoptnjf he had forfeited, leaving

to be called on to make good that amount
at the last moment. Anglin pro Doses to j
make the track one of the best in the
country and give races of the highest j
order.
BULL AGAINST JUGGERNAUT,
Enraged Animal Charges Against a
Pasadena Electric-Car and
Is Killed.
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3.— An angry
bull which had broken out of its pen tried
to butt a Pasadena electric-car off the
track to-night and was killed.
A car was bound for this city and bad
just passed Sycamore Grove, at 8 o'clock,
when Moiorman Dey saw the bull on the
track a short distance ahead. He clanged
th* gong, expecting to frighten the ani
mal away. ■ ,
Instead he only angered the bull, which
tossed its head in the air and then made
directly for the headlight on the front end
of the car. The distance was too short to
stop the car, and the infuriated animal
was knocked clear off the track and
killed.
AEWEItI,.4AJ>S SUOA.It JtVTIEK.
A Question Submitted to the Treasury
lieparltnent.
WASHINGTON. D. C, Nov. 3.— The
Minister to the United States from The
Netherlands appeared before Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury Howell to-day
concerning a "countervailing" duty
against sugars imported from that coun
try. Collectors of Customs were notified
several weeks ago that as it appeared that
The Netherlands paid a bounty on sngar
which it manufactured ana exported final
liquidation on the c entries should be
held in abeyance until the matter could
be determined. ' * - '-;>
The Minister acknowledged to-day that
his Government paid such a bounty on
sugar produced, but no specific bounty on
sugar exported. He said that the manu
facturer rece.ved no bounty on sugar ex
ported in addition to the bounty on sugar
produced. He argued, therefore, that -.be
bounty was paid on its production and
not on its exportation. The department
took the matter under advisement, and
will announce its decision within a week.

Special Dispatch to The Call.
VICTORIA, > ov. 3.— H. M. S. lmpe
rieuse has returned from South America
after an unsuccasslul search lor 000,000
in gold, silver and precious- stones which
Charles Harford claimed to have located
on Cocos Island. Lentenant Lee and 100
men spent two days digging for treasure
under the direction of Harford. As fast
as they dug a hoi; the water ran in and
tilled it. Several of th se engaged in the
search say that the slate covering the
hiding-place of the treasure was discov
ered.
The weather being very bad and {he an
chorage en'irely unsuitable for such a
large vessel as the Iraperieuse, Admiral
Pallisor decided to abandon the search.
On the way down, while Hearing San Jose
de Guatemala, one of the Imperieuse's
crew was washed overboard and drowned.
Although returning without the treas
ure of Cocos Island the trip of the Im
perieuse was not made without consider
able promise that the secret of the treasure
trove of the Pacific has at last beenwresled
from the sandbanks of the desert island.
This view of the case is borne out by the
fact that an armed party of fifty blue
jackets under a commanding officer was
sent a-hore when the warship sailed north
to hold the island against all comers.
Not only this but H. M. S. Amphion is
now under orders to sail south imme
diately. Her visit to the island will, ac
cording to the officers, form part ot a pro
gramme which, although this is the last
move, will not be in compliance with any
written order.
The flagship left Esquimau on Septem
ber 22, under orders from England to ren
dezvous at San Jose to Guatemala, in
order to protect Btitish interests during
the recent emeute in that country,
but as the righting was well over on its
arrival, the* admiral remained but a few
days, when he again put to sea and headed
for Cocos Island.
On the flagship when it sailed from here
were E. Harris ot Lo wen berg, Harris &
Co. of this city, and Charles Harford, the
man who claims to hnv.». located the treas
ure. He interested Harris and together
they interested the admiral and officers of
the flagship in the treasure to sucn an ex
tent that the admiral decided to make the
search. Harris was taken .down as a guest
of the admiral, and daring the voyage
was known as a "news correspondent,"
Harford was a man whom the men knew
as an "interpreter." - •*-■ ; •'«
As soon as the island was reached an
armed party .went on shore under Har
ford's direction and commenced opera
tions, but, although a large party was, at
work, owing to the deluge of rain the ex
cavations in the sandy soil filled as rap
idly as they were made. Af or the few
days' hard work little headway was made,
and as there was no anchorage tor the
Imperieuse Admiral Palliser decided to
discontinue work for the present, althouch
satisfied that the treasure bad been lo
cated, and a detachment of fifty men
under a lieutenant was put ashore to con
tinue the work.
When the warship arrived at the island
Gustavo Gessier, a German belonging to
Stockton, who is engaeed in searching for
the treasure, was at Puntas Arena with
Gus Livingston, one of the Victoria seal
ers who was left there by the Aurora ex
pedition, after provisions. Captain Whld
den, another Victorian left by the Aurora
expedition, had also left the island. The
only people on the island were two Ger
mans, the wife of one of them . nd the
wife o I Gessler. As soon as Harford went
ashore he covered his face with a handker
chief, but Mrs. Gessler knew him at once,
and shouted to him:
"I . know you, Harford. It'a useless for
you to cover up your face, and don't you
dare to put a spade In this island."
Admiral Falliser stated to-day that the
Ampbion had been ordered south and
would co as far as CoquimbJ, but declined
to say that Cccos Isiand would not be
visited. It is generally understood^m the
vessel that her sailing orders, while not
indicating a visit to the island, would per
mit of -in li a trip, and it will be taken.
Harford was landed at San Juan de
Guatemala on the trip north and the chap
lain of the IrnDerieuse says that tne offi
cers of the United Suites steamshiip Alert,
which was at that port, had sgr ed to pay
a visit to Cocos Island with Harford on
board, be having located the signal-stone
which, according to the directions left by
those who buried the treasure, marks the
spot where the millions were hidden.
