whoso reel names the London police say

borough street police court yesterday

session of quantity of Jewelry. The
World correspondent is Infornnd that the

shops la Bond street, but it appears that

f 1IT Vav Vnpt
from New York.
Tho men were searched and twenty
eight unset diamonds, valued at 3,0U0
4tlo,'J0U), were found In their pockets.
They refused to give any explanation.
Tha police knew they lived tn lodgings in
Shepherd's market; near Whitehorse
street, Mayfalr, and not far from Picca
dilly. Thore the police found jawclry to
the value, as tbey say, of 10,000 UJ0O,OG0),
together with the settings of tho diamonds
found upon them whon arrested. Tho
other Jewelry was sewn up In belts and In
the linings of tholr clothos. One gold
plcco with tho name "T. Burden" en
graved upon it was also found.
Tho police say tbo Jowolry corresponds
to the description of that stolen from Mrs.
Burden, and they think all that was miss
ing has been recovered. ' The police are
most reticent about the caso. Tho ar
rested men, while making no resistance
whon overhauled, stfunoi greatly fright

statement.

Havana, April 17. Further do tails of
the fighting between the Alfonso XIII
battalion and the Insurgents under Maceo
at San Claudia, near the northern ex

outnumbered the men of the Alfonso

in pursuing the rctrcatiug vanguard of

enabled tho insurgents to surround them

forces and succeeded In maintaining a cor

fight, tho harbor of San Claudia was
reached and tho troops barricaded them
selves in tho best positions possl'ule and

this long and harassing retreat tho Al
fonso XIII battalion only Rist oao offloer
and four men killed and had only thir
teen men wounded. Tho flro of tho troops
was so well delivered and tho movements
of tho battalion wore so efficiently ordered
and promptly executed that the 6, CO J
