The battle-field is where the finest buildings and statues in the city would be exposed to artillery lire. With the insurgents bombarding the Govern ment house and in possess! of theniilitary : magazines their triumph in the city seems already assured. he revolutionary leaders^ ' when masters of the capital,. will virtually have won the whole campaign. The same causes of dissatisfaction which brought* on the revolt iv Buenos- A -.res . will be likely to prejudice public opinion in the provincial towns against an adminis tratis that has been the most reck less aud lunate iv . its financial • policy. The large foreign element -in the provinces, which has been recruited mainly from Italy, takes little interest in the political rivalries and has no heart for civil war. lf the insurgent leaders can restore order in the capital and organize a new eovernuient that will have to; no claim to public confidence they will probably be allowed for a season to establish a military dictatorship. Argentine has been re duced to the present deplorable condition largely through systematic overtrading and reckless borrowing.

A San Franciscan's Experience at the Capital. ' ! « Charlotte Smith and a Policeman Chase Him Oat of the Town. Jack Samuels as a Joke Represents Himself to Be Mrs. Mackay 's Detective and Flies . From the Service ef a Warrant. Special Dispatches to The Morning Call. Washington, July 28.— A handsome well-dressed young man, giving the name of Jack Samuels and residence San Francisco, had a lively experience during his brief so journ of 24 hours in this city. lie com plained that Washington was a dull sleepy village, whereat two conespondents on Newspaper Row suggested a pleasant di version, and accordingly introduced to his notice Mrs. Charlotte E. Smith, the woman who has been annoying Mrs. Mackay. Young Samuels conceived the idea' that It would be a fine joke to impersonate Nathan Bijur, the detective-lawyer of New York, who had Mrs. Mackay's case in charge, and who recently cabled that lady that Charlotte Smith was crack-brained, end should not be heeded. This naturally aroused the ire of Mrs. Smith, and she swore out a warrant for the arrest of Nathan Bijur, charging him with the lar ceny of $1 and certain valuable papers. The existence of such warrant was un known to Samuels, and after he bad par leyed with her for some time in a futile effort to "effect a compromise" between Mrs. Mackay aud the editress, tlie latter lady withdrew from tho company of the Sau Franciscan and his companions and rang for a policeman to arrest "Nathan Bijur." The young man was forewarned, however, through a friendly agency, and hied himself to his hotel, where he was secreted, the while keeping up a vigilant outlook. At last he ventured out, but abated no' prudent provisions against sur prise. He managed to elude her, and to ward dark to-night boarded a Pennsylvania train, which moved out just as the breath less Mrs. Smith, acconn anied by a police man, appeared at the railing which sepa rates the waiting-room from the railway tracks. As she perceived the receding railway bearing away her "Nathan Bijur," she ges ticulated wildly with her umbrella aud gave vent to several hysterical little screams, ac companied by facial contortions which did not enhance her native beauty the least. She retired disappointed and discom filed. Mrs. Smith is a woman of literary accom plishment, but is evidently a monomaniac on the subject of bettering the condition of womankind. It is said she applied to Mrs. Mackay for money iv aid of tne "scheme," aud being refused resorted to defamatory publications about Mrs. Mackay. , CEARK-ON RETICENT.

He said he found the people uf tlie Slope to he a most progressive class, and he was really astonished at the wonderful energy and push they displayed. lie liad heard before his departure on bis trip of this, but was inclined to doubt it. Now, after visiting that section he was almost prepared to be lieve anything that was told him. He said the Pacific Slope was, indeed, a wonderful country, and its citizens were wide awake aud ready to lake advantage of every opportunity that arose. In regard to mail facilities, which he went to investigate, he staled that he had noted a number of places where mail service could be improved, and he would incorporate his views in a report to the Postmaster-General urging certain changes which he believed would be a benefit to all classes. On the subject of a site for the San Fran cisco Postoffice, he was decidedly reticent. He stated that he bad been requested to in vestigate various sites offered and report as to winch one, in his opinion, was best suited for the needs of the Government. He had made this investigation, but as yet had been unable to report, lie expected to have a conference with the Postmaster-General this afternoon and with the Secretary of the Treasury to-morrow, and would then give them his views on the matter. Until he re ported to them lie thought it inadvisable to give any indication as to what recommend ation he would make. In another interview he said: "My tour comprehended all important cities west of Chicago and north of Kansas City. No one can understand how rapidly that great country is developing until he sees it. It has not in any ol the departments of tlie Government the official facilities that it Is eutitled to. I traveled on a fast mail train from Central lowa to Portland, Oregon, which makes a good deal of the time sixty seven miles per hour, and the service is very efficient, and other last mails are being brought up to the standard of efficiency." Postoffices in cities that have been doubling every year or two were looked over, and 1 returned with strong recommendations for increased allowances for nearly all of them, and some of these have already been grant ed. '1 he department is anxious to try and keep un with that country in ils great growth and increase of population and busi ness. The development of the States in the mountains and on the Pacific Slope is simply wonderful." COISGRESS. TIIE SENATE. Tho Tariff Bill Finally Taken Up for Con- •ideration. Washington. July 28.— 1n the Senate this morning the bill to pension all the sur viving officers and men of Powell's battal ion of Missouri Mounted Volunteers, raised during the war with Mexico, was passed. — * - *Vl£ Aldrich offered, a resolution fixing the daily hour of meeting at 11 o'clock. Ingalls suggested an understanding that the busi ness of the morning hour shall be con sidered closed at 1 o'clock. Allison did not wish it Implied that the Senate would de vote two hours a day to morning business. Ingalls said lie did wish just such an im plication. ' As soon as the Tariff Bill, the Appropriation bills and the Election Bill were passed, Congress would undoubtedly adjourn promptly, therefore whatever was to be done between now aud the time of ad journment, in consideration of measures on the calendar, would have to be dune in the morning hour. There were several hundred bills ou the calendar entitled to consideratiod. Cockrell asked what was the use of the Senate passing bills when the distinguished gentleman iv charge of the House did I not give any attention to them. There were now on the calendar of the House hundreds aud hundreds of bills passed by the Seuate and no attention paid to them. Among them was a bill refunding the direct tax, also two bills recently passed, and regarded on the other side of the chamber as very lm; ortant measures, the shipping bills, aud they were being left tu" sleep the sleep that knows no waking." llawley did not agree with Co.krell. He wanted his own ammunition in order, so he could go home with a clear record. - The resolution as to meeting at 11 o'clock was agreed to, with the understanding that the Senate shall adj urn at 0 o'clock. . Aldrich moved to proceed to the consid eration of ihe Tariff Bill. That motion was antagonized by Gray to proceed to the con sideration of the House bill for the transfer of the Revenue Marine to ' the Navy De partment. - The ; latter motion ' was agreed to- -ayes 20, noes 2.1. • , *<; > : , :. Cockrell continued his argument in oppo sition to the bill, and had not concluded his speech when, at 2 o'clock, the presiding officer laid ' before the Senate the Tariff Bill as unfinished business. Gray moved to continue the consideration of the Revenue Marine Bill. Frye said the friends of the Revenue Bill had occupied but an hour and a half upon it and its enemies, a small majority, all the rest of the time. It was as evident to the Senate as if their purpose had been an nounced that tbe time had been occupied for the purpose of preventing a vote on the measure. That only indicated (what he believed in), the necessity of the previous question In the Senate or some way to stop debate, or some way to prevent a Senator from getting up every morning for three or four mornings in succession and reading from the report of the Clerk in the Treas ury Department. Why should not the vote be taken on tbe bill if there is a majority of the Senate in favor of it"? Why should it not be permitted to say so? The Senator from Ohio (Sherman) had made four speech es upon the bill, and in the. course of them read the same identical articles, which the Senator Irom Missouri has occupied the last three mornings in reading. Finally Gray's motion was rejected— ayes 14, noes 34. The Tariff Bill was then taken up, and Vest addressed the Senate in opposition to it. The advocates of high tariff taxation, he said, were confronted by a great peril. Depression in agricultural interests, and the emphatic demands of the farmers for something besides lying statistics and frothy declaration had caused President- Harrison and Secretary Blame to urge upon Congress legislation for subsidies to steam ships and for reciprocity treaties with South American States in order to obtain a for eign market for American products. Very little was heard now of the home market, but a gieat deal of tho South American market. So at last protectionists have been driven from their pretentious humbui^aboiit a home market and were forced to adopt the principle of free commercial inter course which tbey had so long opposed and derided. Vest went'on to criticize the pro visions of the pending bill that are sup posed to be for the benefit of farmers, and said what the farmers wanted was the open ing and enlargement of the foreign mar kets for their surplus wheat, corn, cattle and pork, and a decrease of the tariff duty on clothing, hardware, tins and oilier nec essary articles of daily and incessant use by the farmer and bis family. The pend ing bill, he declared, was to repay mill owners their contributions to the campaign fund of the Republican party during the last Presidential canvass, and as the plant ers of the South were Democrats the du ties on northern .manufacturers were in creased, while the duty on rice was dimin ished. Consumers in • the United States were being systematically plundered under the pretense of protection to home industries. No further concealment is pos sible, The truth is at last revealed. Man ufacturers who were persistently asking for higher duties to exclude foreign competi tion were availing themselves of the mo nopoly given by an exclusive tariff to charge the people of this country from 20 to 70 per cent higher for their goods than toey could sell the same articles for in unpro tected markets of the world. It was no longer protection, hut pure, simple, naked plunder. Americans boasted of their free institutions, of liberty and equality, but who, he asked, could call himself a free man, save in mockery, when by a course of law the proceeds of his life and labor were unjustly taken to enrich another? Turpie addressed the Senate briefly on Mcl'berson's resolution to recommit the bill with instructions to report a bill to re duce the revenue and to equalize the duties on imports in which the average ad valorem rate of duty on all dutiable articles shall not exceed the average ad valorem war tariff rate of 1-04.- lie declared himself not satisfied with the instructions, If there was a choice to he made between the pend ing bill and the Morrill tariff of 1884, be would choose the Morrill tariff. But as the proposed instructions were simply an ex pression of opinion of that great leader of the people who polled a majority of the people for his re-election, the scheme would be an imposition of lower du ties on things in general ■'• use and of higher rates on articles- s of luxury and refinement, the total sum of the levy not to exceed ihe necessary expenses of the Government aud the interest on the national dtbt. .-:,-v --.-■ -•■-'■ The question was taken on the motion to recommit and wasdeleated by a strict party vote— ayes 19, noes 29. The leading of the bill by paragraphs for amendment 'was begun, the first schedule being that as to chemicals, oils and paints. Mcpherson moved to reduce the duty on acetic or byroligneous acid not exceeding specific gravity of 0.147 from I ,_ cents to i cent per pound and on acid exceeding that specific gravity from 4 to 3 cents per pound. The vote was : Ayes' 15, noes 23— no quorum. Plumb offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on Secretary Carr for in formation as to the rules established ior admission to Soldiers' homes, and inquiring if such admissions are based wholly or iv part on the amount of pension, and whether exceptions to those rules are made aud in what cases ami for what reasons. The Senate bill appropriating 5.10,000 for a public building at Sheboygan, Wis., was reported and placed on the calendar. Vest presented to the Senate the remon strance of a large number of persons of St. Louis protesting against the passage of the Federal Election Bill. Adjourned. THE HOUSE. The Sund ry Civil Avpropriatien Bill Consid ered in Committee of the Whole. Washington, July 28.— The House went Into Committee of the Whole for further consideration of the Senate amendments to the Sundry Civil Appropriation Bill. The recommendations of the -Committee on Appropriations were agreed to without much friction, that bone of contention, th Senate irrigation amendment, being passed over until otlier matters were disposed of.. Cannon made a strong effort to throw into the committee the Senate amendment increasing the appropriation for the publi cation of the official records of the war irom $152,100 to S'-'3,T,U00, but it was de feated. The House decided to concur with out disposing of all the amendments. The committee then rose aud the House ad journed.

The Armenian Cathedral the Scene of Riot and Bloodshed. - Constantinople, . July 28. — A large crowd of Armenians gathered in the Arme nian Cathedra) in this city yesterday for : the puipose of remonstrating with the Pa triarch of the Church for his weak action toward the Porte regarding outrages perpe trated by the Turks in Armenia, and to de mand bis resignation. One of the crowd mounted a chair in the cathedral and de manded that the Patriarch explain the events that had occurred at Erzerouni and the position of affairs in Armenia. The Patriarch protested against the action of the mob, and declared a sacred edifice was no place for such a demonstration. This answer to their demands exasperated the mob, and they rushed upon the Patriarch, ■ dragged him from the pulpit and otherwise maltreated liim. After being very roughly treated the Patriarch finally succeeded in breaking loose and made his escape. Mili tary assistance was asked for, and a body of Turkish troops was sent to restore order, but when they entered the cathedral and tried to clear the building tbey met with a des perate resistance. -'- The mob was armed with revolvers , and spiked staves, and a bloody confiict ensued between them and the troops. Four of the soldiers and sev-' eral rioters" were killed and others were in jured before the ■ mob was driven from the building. The cathedral is now closed. P.cw Works Burned. . Minneapolis^ July 28.— The plant of the Monitor Plow Works was burned this after ' noon, entailing a loss of ". $115,000. v Fully Insured. - THE THEATERS. New Pieces Attract Large Audi- ences to Three Houses. "Saints and Sinners" at the Baldwin— "Lights a.d Shadows" at the Bash-Street. " Vice-Admiral" at the Tivoll. That closely considered and thoroughly well constructed drama "Saints and Sin ners," by Henry Arthur 'Jones, was en joyed by a large and fashionable audience at the Baldwin last evening. There is a wide difference between its motive aud action and that of the piece to which last week **_■ devoted; but' there .are equally as great opportunities in Jones' work ns there are in Lumley's for strong and pointed acting. The principal character— Jacob Fletcher, minister of Bethel Chapel, Steepleford— is in the hands of that most accomplished actor, Mr. J. 11. Stoddart, and for an elab orate, truthful piece of work bus never been excelled. Like many of Dickens' novels, the D.ay was evidently written for a purpose— the purpose, in this case, being to show the unfair dealing of ignorant and purse-proud members of English dissenting congregations in dealing with their minis ters. As Samuel Hoegard, a tanner and senior deacon of the Bethel, Mr. Frederic Robinson made a vivid picture of the cold-blooded; rapacious worldling under the guise of religion, and Charles W" Butler as Prabble, a grocer aud junior, deacon, worked out the' creature aud will ing tool of ' 11 oggaid in a manner to call for applause from the audience. Mr. £. M. Holland had' a comparat ively. small part iii Lot Burden, foreman to Hoggard, but be made a good deal out. of it. in fact the small parts were brought into prominence both by make-up and line acting touches? _..__. Tyler's Jack Rad dles, Barry Holiday's Uncle Bramberry, and Herbert Milward's Peter Greeuacre. were among the parts so projected. Mr.. Edward Bell played Ralph Kingsmill, Letty Fletcher's affianced, in splendid, manly fashion, defying the villain Fan shawe and public opinion at the same time, in bis love for Letty Fletcher, whom Faushawe (Barrymore) had ruined. Maud Harrison made a pretty character of Letty — suffering under a great wrong which not even the deep sympathy of her broken-hearted father, or the manly stand taken by her lover, Ralph, could repair. Some of the scenes between the Rev. Jacob aud his housekeeper (Mrs. E. J. Phillips) were full ol fine shades of human nature at its best and teuderest* the scene between the minister and Hog gard, where the latter offer*, to conceal his knowledge of Letty's downfall in case the tortured minister consents to a valuation of the property that will rob the widow and fatherless for the aggrandizement of the demon, was a brave assertion of cor rect moral principle in the face of the strongest temptation to the contrary that any man can be subjected to. AltonetlnT, "Saints and Sinners" is in all parts of its cast a valuable and most enjoyable example of the best form of sta_e work. It will bo repeated this evening. . The orchestra played during the evening two selections from the ilinrichs competi tive list — "Remembrance of i huriiigia," by Carl yon der Mehden, and (</; "Allium Leaf" and (6) "Concert Mazurka," by Mel ville Ellis. Both are to be commended for meritorious compositions. -••=.*" ■ At th.* California The usual crowded houses attended the . performance of "The City Directory" and the new songs and business introduced for this week. • *-.*•::.: ' .. - "The Vice-Admiral" ...

The beneficiaries realized about _iSO each. " *.i*rhtß autt .Shadow*." The Bush-street Theater is for the nonce given up to melodrama. Last evening Mr. Joseph R. Grismer and Miss Phoebe Davies, supported by their own company, began a season at this house in Mr. diaries Gayler's work, "Lights aud Shadows"— said to have had a most successful run in New York last season. It is sensational enough, to suit the tastes of those play -goers who - find amusement In this class of dramatic entertainment. Some of the situations aro intense, even if im probable, but that is a matter about which an audience does uot trouble itself much. So long as the play goes biff bang that is all that is looked for. After all, people do not go to a theater to find fault with what a manager sets before them, but to derive as much pleasure and amusement as possible out of the en tertainment. "Liehts and Shadows" has a good deal of thrill in it. and some of it is of a blood-curdling character. The story is one of revenge— kind of ven detta—and shows what a woman will do sometimes to eet even with her betrayer. There is a she-devil in Mr. Grismer's play whose thirst for vengeance seems unappeasable, seeking every oppor tunity to injure the kith and kin of. the man who wronged her. She has a young lady abducted and tortures her in a diaboli cal manner. This is done within hearing of her enemy's son, the lover ef the unfortu nate girl, and who is powerless to inter fere. This furnishes a thrilling situation. For a first-night performance the play went very smoothly. A number of alterations iv the dialogue and stage business might be made to advantage. Mr. Grismer had the leading role, Mark Melbiirn— a man that passes through a good* many hair breadth escapes, and comes out outwardly unscathed. He played it carefully aud well. Miss Phoebe Davies, as the suffering heroine, Edith Brougliton, was ladylike, earnest and sympathetic, and, with Mr. Grismer, was called several times " before the curtain. Mr. James E. Carden was cast for Rufus Meiburn, a man seeking to keep up a position in the world by a false show", and who ap propriates his nephew's money to do ' this, subsequently killing himself. This sterliug actor made the most of his oppor tunities. He. also doubled the part of Claude Maul, an aitist, but the pains be stowed upon it was unworthy his abilities. Mr. Scott Cooper, Mr. Lorlmer Johnston and Mr. George H. Trader did their share of the work very effectively. Miss Delia Macquaid and Miss Sarah Stevens afforded valuable aid. "Lights and * Shadows" should do a good week's business. * Grnprai Mention. Miss M.

His liabilities are estimated at $130,000 and he had about £80,000 up in margins. In addition to his nut speculation Hess had sold a line of May corn. B. G. Tennant, a small trader in pro visions, was also forced to order his trade closed to-day. Chicago, July 28.— The endeavors of the shorts to cover any additional reports of dry weather had the effect this morning of causing a higher and excited opening of wheat, corn and oats. Wheat started in with a rush at a range of 95% cents to 913 cents in different parts of the pit, and a heavy demand from the shorts held it steadily at the higher point until 10:13 o'cljek in the morning, when it was quoted at 95% cents. Corn, under the same con ditions, started in almost 2 cents higher than Saturday's close, at 45% cents to 45 cents, and "soon advanced to 47"_ cents under sharp buying. Fifteen minutes after the opening it dropped to 40% cents. WASHINGTON'S POPULATION. A Semi-Oh-cial Announcement Furnishing an Estimate. . Washington, July 28.— Superintendent Porter has transmitted to Representative Wilson of Washington an estimate of the population of that State, based upon the reports of numerators and cards not yet received. According to this estimation the population is about 340,000. In bis letter Mr. Porter says: "These postal-cards show the names which numerators took each day. If there is no change in the estimates the population will be about what is repre sented on the table. You will, of course, understand that this is not in any sense an official estimate, nor is it an estimate upon which you could absolutely rely. I might add, however, that the chances are that the population will exceed rather than be less than this." IT WAS IN THE GRANT. A Washington Settler's Homestead Entry Ordered Canceled.
