Negotiations for a Reciprocity Agree • ment — The Prospect of the Ad k mission of American Pork Into Germany — Military Reforms Lead to the Retirement of General dv Vernois— Socialist Manifes tations. Copyrighted. 1890, by the New York Associated l'ress. Berlin, Sept. 27.— Creditable information received from the German Embassy in Paris that Bibot, the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, is 'tinting with Whitelaw Keid, the American Minister, for a reciprocity ar rangement between France and the United States, has summarily settled the project of Count Kulnoky, the Austro-llungarian Prime Minister, for combined reprisals against the United States in retaliation for the McKinley Tariff Hill. Emperor William never entertained auy idea of reprisals. Chancellor vm Caprivi had a conference witli Herr Miquel and accepted his scheme t. lessen the cost of living to the masses by higher imposts on the moneyed classes, the piiaciple involving the early reopening of the German markets to American pork. The official impression here is tint Minister -i*tnrfpb" overtures for a settlement, if re newed, backed by some easy concession on German experts to the United States, will fin a ready response from the Chanc ellor. • Advices from Vienna indicate that the Austrian Government would also accept the principal of reciprocity, Count Kalnoky having instructed the Austrian Minister at Washington to make representations in the matter of pearl and other Austrian indus tries affected by the McKinley bill with a view to negotiations for a treaty. Herr Miquel's financial statements have also decisively influenced the military re forms and led ta the retirement of General dv Vernois from the War Ministry, and the proffered resignation of Count yon Walder see, both of whom urged Emperor Wi.iiam to adopt Scharnhorst'i plau for the reor ganization of the army, involving a heavy increase in the war budget. Despite the popularity of Scharnhorst's scheme in military circles, the Chancellor has thrown the whole weight of his influ ence against adding to the war budget. The prei aiations against the Socialist manifestations *f October Ist are equal to Ihe contingencies of a civil war. The So cialists riuicule the expectation of au out bie.ik. Bismarck's intention.

GAINED THEIR POINT. Dillon and O'Brien Protest Against Being .'__.;; Tried S?pirately. Dvei.i.v, Sept 27. — There is no abatement of the interest in the trial of the National ist leaders at Tipper, The impression is 7 that the Government is trying to prolong the ' trial. The desire of the crown prosecution this morning was that the cases be tried separately. To this the defendants unitedly fcbjectcd. The magistrates at last yielded, and decided" to favor a collective hearing. The Crown Prosecutor, Ronan, submitted . with very bad grace. He declared that he bowed to the decision because he must and said he would refrain from expressing any opinion of its fairness. The Nationalists _■<• red one point The sensational feature of the morning wis the renewed attack by the defendants on Magi- Irate Shannon. After their pro test against Shannon was disregarded Wednesday, they decided to bring . tiie objections in a more formal way. They //3r. 1 a statement of their reasons in 'gmif lorm of an affidavit, to which each de -Tfnlant affixed lis signature. This joint \ »ffi lavit the defendants took into court this < morning Mid attempted to present it to the bench. The magistrates, who had received in intimation of defendant-,' purpose, were taken completely by surprise, and as soon i.s hey understood the nature of the docu ment they peremptorily declined to receive it In-tan; ly Ronan was on his feet denounc -ing the action of the defendant.'. It was difficult he declared, to find language strong enough tv fittingly characterize it. The doc ument they sought to present was an infam ous libel on Shannon.' Shannon himself pronounced the affidavit "an attempt to make a scandal of justice." This expression was greeted by the defendants with roars of hil iriotis laughter. When the preliminary matters were dis posed of and the time had, come for taking testimony, it was found the two defendants were not in the court-room. A short recess was taken to give time for the absent ones to I)-! summoueii. -It was subsequently decided to adjourn the case until Monday without taking any testimony. ■..: THE BAKKI'.NUIA AFFAIR. Captain Pitta' Letter to the Port Captain of San Jose Regarding the Klin?. City of Mexico, Sept 27.— 1n the official Guatemalan report of the Barrundia affair is a letter to the Port Captain of San Jose from Captain Pitts, dated on board the steamer nlco, in whicli he says: "Barrundia hoarded the steamer at Acapulco. having a ti.-ket for Panama, aud was disarmed by me. Ob August 28th the authorities boarded the A apulco, bearing a letter from Minister 'Winner, telling me I must surrender Bar -rrrndia if the authorities demanded it. I went to the cabin with the Port Captain, but fore I could finish reading the letter Bar rundia commenced firing on 08. We sought refuge and he followed, continuing to lire Dp D us. The firing then became general, and about sixty shots were fired before Lar riiiidia was killed." New York, Sept. 28.— The Tribune says: The Slate Department in considering the Barrundia affair will be embarrassed by Bayard's ruling in _ the Gomez case. Ac cording to this ruling Miztier was justified in advising Pitts to surrender Barrundia, but he must have been aware of the fact that yard's ruling, while in conformity with internaAmal law, was not in accord with the recognized principles of international comity in Central American affaiis. For thirty years the Pacific Mail steamers have been protecting political of fenders in Central American poi Is. -< The practice lias been sanctioned by every one of the Governments on the peninsula. Min ister Mizner has sacrificed international comity and shocked tlio moral sense of the 'people of Central America. His interven tion was wholly unnecessary. EVIDENCE CONCLUDED.

Culhertson was to give him (Wheat) $150 per month out of it, and did so till a dis- 1 charged employe told of it and it got into tie newspapers, then he concluded the con tract was a violation of law, anil wanted to give the money back to Culbertaon, but he was told it belonged tn the Government, so lie deposited it at the Treasury and stopped taking money from Culhertson. lie had consulted ihe Clerk of (he House, Repre sentative Caswell and the Speaker about the matter.

Scott President of the Union Iron Works at San Francisco, who has been In the city several days perfecting arrangement! for his bids on the new ships, has gone to Washington to attend the opening of the bids Wednes day. The bids include three big battle ships and a swift triple-screw commerce destroyer, for all of which Congress has appropriated 5,000,000. Scott is justly proud of the work done by the San Fran cisco, which was built in his yards, and he expresses the hope that the Western Coast may have a further opportunity to demon strate its superiority in building the new vessels. Scott is not alone in the field, his competitors being the Cramps of Philadel fhia and the Bath (Maine) Iron Works. The 'residents of all these companies are now at Washington preparing the final estimates. It is thought not unlikely that the vessels ill be divided among tin- four best bidders, by which means the quickest work can be secured and relative superiority compared. Indians on the War Path.

WILL VISIT THE COAST. The President Will Come to California in the Sprin l . . "Washington, Sept. 27.— 1t is settled be yond all doubt that President Harrison and certain members of his Cabinet will visit California next spring. Nearly three weeks ago it was learned from the most reliable source that President Harrison, Secretary Blame and probably three other Cabinet officers would attend the dedicatory exer cises of the Leland Stanford Jr. University. This was telegraphed exclusively by the California Associated Press in its afternoon dispatches. This dispatch-was copied, and some of the newspapers enlarged upon it to a wonderful degree. Consequently all sorts of extravagant stories have been rife con cerning the gorgeous preparations for the trip of the Presidential party. ■ INVITED 11Y Till; KNIGHTS. The idea ot the President's trip to Cali fornia was first suggested when the Knights Templar met in Washington ' about a year ago. The Golden Gate Commandery called upon the President in a body, and while in conversation with him he was' invited to visit the Pacific Const . ••■' President Harrison seemed so Interested and responded so enthusiastically to this In vitation that it was suggested to Senator Stanford by members of the Golden Gate Commandery that be exercise his Influence toward having the President visit Califor nia. Senator Stanford took hold of the matter at once mid upon every occasion when in conversation with the President, at public receptions or at private social en tertainments given by the President, the Senator has expiated upon the beauties of California and her wonderful scenery and resource , and succeeded in arousing tha Presidents interest in the Golden State. ENTHUSIASTIC ON THE SUBJECT. Finally Senator Stanford conceived the idea of inviting the President and Cabinet and others to attend the dedication exercises of the Leland Stanford Jr. University. Mrs. Harrison una Mrs. Stanford grew even more enthusiastic on the subj-ct than the gentle men, and many a social debate they have had with pleasure over the prospects of such an' enjoyable trip. Secretaries Elaine, No ble and Rusk and Attorney-General Miller were talked to on the matter and each one testified to the great pleasure such a visit would give them, and signified a strung dis position to accept. A VISIT TO THE PBESIDENT. While matters were still in this statu quo condition, that is to say while it was under stood by all hands that the trip was to be mado in the spring. Senator Stanford went to Europe and the formal invitations have not as yet been presented to clinch the mat ter and settle beyond all doubt the truth of the report of the President's California trip. The Califoruia Associated Press correspond ent to-day accompanied Representatives Morrow and McKenna to the White House. The party was very graciously received by the President - decided to come. "Mr. President, we understand that you j are contemplating a trip to California next spring?" said Mr. Morrow. " Yes," said President Harrison, "I have always longed to see California. The State has always had a strange interest and even fascination for me. 1 have been out on the Union Pacific Railroad as far as Salt Lake City, and have been nut a good distance on the Northern Pacific, but i have never been over the Central, or Southern Pacific, and have never yet sighted the Golden Gate. I was very anxious to accept the invitation so kindly tendered me by the Pioneers' As sociation and the Native Sons of the Golden West 1 was also desirous of attending the Spokane Falls Exposition, but it was im possible for me to get away. Yes, if noth ing happens to prevent, 1 will go to Califor nia some lime alter Congress adjourns next spring. I think that is the must pleasant lime to visit California." A KOYAI.' WELCOME. Messrs. Morrow and McKenna agreed to this last and suggested that a good plan would he to go over the Southern route and return by the Central. The President said he thought probably some such plan would be adopted. Morrow and McKenna said that the Pacific Coast would indeed give him a right royal welcome, and President Harrison answered with some pretty sentiment or other about California's hearty good fellows and famous hospitality. The President was told that the newspapers reported that he was to go as the guest of Senator Stanford to attend the dedication services of the i.eland Stan ford Jr. University and that gorgeous prep arations for the trip were being made on a special train of cars. NO FORMAL INVITATION. JfIIII The President responded, with a smile, that he did not know about tho latter. He did not know whether lie would go as Sena tor Stanford's guest or not, for as yet lie hud received no formal Invitation, and he knew nothing about the special train of cars; "bill," he said, " whether in a special train or otherwise, I intend to visit Califor nia next spring." " After further exchange of polite conversa tion the California party withdrew, Messrs. Morrow and McKenna being greatly pleased with the result of the Interview. - A SPECIAL TRAIN. It is learned that the report of a special train being made for the trip is not entirely correct. It seems that nearly every year the Pullman, Company completes a new set of cars for the i Southern Pacific system, and such new train of cars will be completed next spring and will lie sent to Washington and thence to California with the Presiden tial party aboard, which may Include, beside the Presidential household and tbe four Cab inet officers above named, other members of the Cabinet as well as a few Senators and Representatives.

General Cadwallader of San Diego, who has been here several weeks working to se cure the establishment of a military post at that point, is very much gratified at the pros pects and thinks the bill will pass at the next session. Generals Miles, Howard and Grierson have each recommended the establishment of a military post at San Diego, and now it is learned that Secre tary Proctor favors it. Assistant Secretary of War Grant says that at the time of tha reported Lower California filibustering scheme, when there seemed a prospect of trouble there, President Harrison sent for him (in the absence of Secretary Proctor) and asked what sort of a military force could be mustered at San Diasto at short notice, and in case of great emergency. Grant ex plained the situation to him and the Presi dent said that there should be by all means a military post in the extreme lower end of California. DECISION SUSTAINED. The Commissioner of the Land Office hav ing reversed the decisions of the lower oili cers of the Visalia Land District, and held for cancellation the homestead entry of William Newman, the Secretary decides that there is not sufficient evidence of good faith on Newman's part and therefore sus tains the Commissioner's decision. . Eight hundred citizens of Southern Cali fornia have petitioned against the passage of the Federal Flection Bill and requested Congressman Clunie to present it at the next session. OPPOSED TO FOREIGN IMMIGRATION. A. _.. Spear of San Francisco has mailed Representative Cliinie the remonstrance of 1900 citizens against foreign Immigration. Mr. Spear suggests that a high tax be levied ou each immigrant entering our ports. John lloyt of Guerneville, Cal., has sunt two redwood canes to Mr. Morrow aud re quested that he will present them to Presi dent Harrison. Morrow will present them Monday. Lieutenant S. E. Wadsworth has been detached from duty at the Pacific Rolling mills, San Francisco, and ordered lo the Alert General Cadwallader will leave for San Diego on Monday. Secretary Proctor announces his intention of Visiting the Pacific Coast next spring, in company with General Schofield.- SMUGGLING CHINESE. The Collector of the Port of San Diego writes to General Cadwallader that a new scheme of smuggling Chinese into Califor nia is in vogue in that section. Ho -says Chinese arc landed on the Mexican coast by ocean steamers, and from there taken to the California coast by what are generally un derstood to be fishing vessels, but which are really engaged in the contraband trade. They lie out- a few miles from the shore all day long nnd pretend to be fishing, and at night put into shore and land the Chinese. He say« that great difficulty Is experienced in dealing with this form of smuggling, and recommends that the Government purchase a .' fast steam laiinzh for the purpose of running down such contraband boats. CONGRESS. THE SENATE. A Bill to Forfeit a Portion of the Northern Pacific Land Grant. Washington, Sept. 27.— morning in the Senate, Morgan introduced a bill, which : was ' referred to the Committee on Public Lauds, to forfeit the | lands .granted to the Northern Pacific for a portion of its line be tween Bismarck, N. Dak., and Wall via,' Ore gon. "'■- He also asked that the "lobbyists who have been here in behalf of the Northern Pacific be suspended from getting * their fees." He thought the K-st way to do that was for the Senate and • House :to take up the subject of forfeiture of that land grant. - The House joint resolution, ; authorizing the Secretary or the Navy to purchase nickel ore or matie for use in the manufacture of steel armor, was taken up, and Cameron's amendment offered yesterday disagreed t0... v Piatt did not approve of the appropriation of $1,000,000 now, when | Congress would be In session again In two months.'?' *.;-•.:" _: Hale said it was necessary to have the ap propriation made now, In order to get con-; trol of the supply of nickel, which would go I elsewhere i_Snot purchased now.* "■"_■ -■*'-- -">yf : 7 Gorman said he opposed the joint resolu tion yesterday, but . was assured its passage was an absolute uecessity in the interest of the public service, and he was bound to ac cept that statement. '■ The Senate resumed consideration of the Immigration contract labor law, the pending question 'being ou Plumb's amendment (offered yesterday) providing the act shall not apply to any organization of musicians or orchestrans. The amendment was agreed to. -v ...-..-'• ■ -. . .;. Hoar moved an amendment that it shall not apply to teachers. ■ . Blair objected. He ", said he might as well let the bill go as to have it picked all to pieces. The . amendment was agreed to, and the bill went over without action.

Adoption of the Conferenca Rioort oa the Tariff Bill, After Debate. Washington, Sept 27.— 1n the House to day McMilln of Tennessee withdrew his demand for the reading of the tariff con ference report, in view of the fact that the report was printed in the Record. McKinley said he understood the Republi can members desired more than one hour for debate on the tariff. He asked, there fore, that debate continue five hours, two to be given to friends and three to opponents of the report. Mc-Millin protested against a limitation being put upon discussion, but suggested if a limitation is to be made the hour be fixed at 0 o'clock. McKinlev acquiesced in this suggestion, and asked" for consent that the previous question he ordered at that hour. ■■'- McMillin* objected, whereupon McKinley gave notice that he would demand the previous question at 5:30 o'clock. McKinley explained the provisions of the conference report. In regard to binding twine, lie expressed the opinion that the duty was too low, but indulged in the hope that some future Congress would apply a remedy. Commenting upon the reciprocity provision ho said: "We consented to the reciprocity provision as put iuto our lull by the Senate— a provision perfectly well un derstood by both sides, of the House. We have accepted the amendment known as the Aldrich amendment, and indulge in the hope that, in accordance with the expecta tion and belief of so many distinguished men all over the country, this will enable us to open up great fields for the products of our farms. We accepted this amendment in the hope that such a result would be fully realized." Flower of New York characterized this measure as a cyclone bill. A portion of the bill was to so arrange it that there should be uo trade between the United States and foreign countries. It would enable manu facturers to combine and fleece the people, while the farmers would fail to find relief, R-ferring to the subject of binding twine, Flower said that while the gentlemen would expatiate in the West upon the provision as being in favor of the farmers of the West, it would ruin 300,000 workingmen in New York and New England. McMillan of Tennessee said the bill as agreed to increased by Sl the tax paid by every Caucasian and negro, man, woman and child in the land. \ The reciprocity pro vision was a cowardly surrender of the high est prerogative of the House. I The hill gave i the President a power not exercised by the Czar of Russia. . McKinley then made the closing speech in advocacy of the bill. The committee had so discriminated in the adjustment of the tariff as to give protection to our people, defense to its industries and compensation to make up the difference between the prices paid labor in Europe and in the United States. For it was the pride of this country that it paid more and better wages to its workmen than paid anywhere else on the face ot God's earth, a*l it was en able I to do it because of the Republican party and the' old Whig (arty before it. The House had given its i romise that it would impose a tariff on the -products that, come Into rompetlon with out own labor, our own soil, or our own crops. The future alone would vindicate or condemn this bill. .The words of the gentleman from Tenncsee, or otlier gentlemen, were only the words of the press of England, or the press of other countries on this question in opposition to this bill. Groat Britain and the Democratic party were in an unholy alliance. [Applause on the Republican side.] The gentlemen on the other side had said the bill would not increase the demand for a siugle grain of wheat, bushel of corn or pound of meal. They forgot that when the bill became a law, and the new Industry of manufacturing our tin had been established, employment would be furnished to a large number of men, which would mean the support of fifty thousand people, and these 50,000 people would be new consumers, and thereby create a demand for the products of the farmers of the West. Already they have begun making tin plate in St. Louis in an ticipation of the bill in the belief that it was t ■• pass. Men were ready to invest money in this enterprise, and instead of paying $15, --000,000 or $20,000,000 to tiie otlier side for our tin we propose to make it at home. This bill, If it liecom a law, would put upon the free list one-half of all the products which the United Slates imported, the like of which was never known in any tariff bill passed by the Congress of the United States. The gentlemen on the other side would tux the people of this country to make an in come for the Government: the Republican party would tax the products of other-people seeking markets in the United States. The previous question was then ordered, yeas 151, nays 70. The conference report was then agreed to, yeas 182 (the Speaker voting in the affirma tive), nays 81. The only deviation from a strict party vote was Coleman, FestherstoneaudKelley, who voted with the Democrats in the nega tive. MeKinley then reported from the Com mittee on Ways and Means a resolution pro viding for a final adjournment on Tuesday, lt was adopted without division, and the 1 House adjourned. GROSS FRAUDS ALLEGED. Crookedness in the Beccuct of Multnomah County, O.eo-on. Washington, Sept. 27. —On Monday Multnomah County, Oregon, and the city of Portland in particular, "will hear something drop." It will le remembered that Mult nomah County was granted a recount of ins ulation, which advantage was improved wiih wonderful success, her population showing up 15,000 more than on the first count. This led the rest of thu State to be lieve similar good results would follow a re count of tin. entire Slate, and they de manded it of Superintendent. Porter. The Census Department has been qtiieily inves t gating the modus operandi by which Mult nomah County enumerators counted 15,000 more people tnau on thu first enumeration, and sensational developments will be dis closed Monday, which will equal the St Paul-Minneapolis affair. .The enumerators will he arrested and possibly, one or two Supervisors, and Multnomah County will be recounted.

A Graphic Retort Furnished by the Captain. The Boatswain Washed Overboard. Charge Against a Kate. • The American ship Yorktown, Captain Delap. arrived yesterday morning after a passage of 106 days from New York, with a cargo of general merchandise consigned to Sutton & Beebe. The vessel had quite an eventful voyage, as the following irom the captain's report of the trip will show : " Sailed from New York April 14th, with the wind from the south. On the same night it hauled to the eastward and continued so all tho way Vi the equator, which was crossed in longitude 30° west, when twenty seven days out; thence to latitude 23? „ south was twenty-five days with nothing but light southerly; winds and 'severe' calms -not even a smell of southeast trades. . "From. latitude 23° south to latitude 43° south had one continuous gale from the southwest and a frightful head sea, making it impossible to carry any sail. The ship was completely buried In water all the time. Thence to Cape Horn had variable winds and all kinds of weather. Passed Cape St. John on June 25th, seventy-two days out, and Cape Horn four days later. Was twenty seven days from latitude SO 3 south iv the Atlantic to 50° south in the Pacific. . A HOWLING GALE. "July Ist commenced with a gale from the northwest and for seven consecutive -days and nights it howled and raged as though it was trying its level best to wipe us out of existence altogether. Duriug the gale the boatswain was washed overboard. We sent out a bo.it to save him, but it was of no use and the boat was lust in returning to the ship. "The gale finally ended tip in a proper old down-East blizzard, blowing with terrific fury and accompanied by the most -violent squalls of hail, snow ami wind, after which it hauled northerly and moderated, when after several unsuccessful attempts to get the ship before the wind, we discovered something wrong with our rudder, and un looking over the stern lound it swinging irom side to side. '.:'7y. IN A NICE PREDICAMENT. "We cut a hole iv the rudder trunk and found the rudder he-d completely twisted off; a nice predicament to be in, in latitude 54° eolith, deeply laden with railroad, pig and scran iron, and various other km i- ol iron, called by courtesy, a ' geueral cargo.' However, when the weather moderated we got a spare yard across the stern and some heavy tackles hooked onto the tiller under water. "We sculled (sculled is a good word) away to the northwest, it taking about all hands to do the sculling; but we were getting along first rate and had got as far as 90° west, when we encountered another north west blizzard, which smashed up the whole business and curried away spar, tackles and everything connected. "'lhe rudder then had full swing until the gale moderated, w nen we rigged her up again with two spars and masthead tackles for supporters and bore away for Valpa raiso, as we did not consider it prudent to continue the voyage in our disabled state. The wind continued westerly aod the weather boisterous, but we made fair prog ress. Kept steering to the northeast for nearly two weeks, uuder easy sail, and when within 200 miles of Valparaiso Provi dence, for some unknown reason, again vis ited his wratli upon us. *<_ ■,-., vi . - . ANOTHER TERRIFIC STORM. "It came in the shape of one of the most terrific storms it has ever been my misfor tune to meet at sea. The wind blew with the violence of a hurricane and a sea that would strike terror to the heart of old Nep tune himself. Our new lower topsails blew away like so much paper; canvas could not stand its fury. "The ship lay for twenty-two hours under bare poles, the sea breaking over her as if she were a half-tide ledge, It seemed as though we were doomed to never get any where; but through it all, strange to say, our steering geer la-Id intact, and next day when the gale had moderated and the wind ailed to the north'ard, finding that every thing had held on so well, and feeling con fident that nothing worse could possibly overtake us than what we had alfvady weathered through, we decided to again pro ceed on our voyage under easy sail aud try and make San Francisco, "The weather continued fine with good trades, and by giving all our attention to the steering we were able to Scull' our way to the northwest with fair proeress, cross ing the equator in longitude 114° west, 128 days out. ; . . -,". 7-7 ■ YET ANOTHER HURRICANE. " Being now on cur own side of the globe, we hoped that our troubles for- the voyage were over, but in this we were doomed to disappointment tor we hud scarcely reached latitude 15° north, longitude 118° west, when the elements commenced to hurl their fury upon us. • "At 7 o'clock in the evening on August 30th, without any apparent warning the sky suddenly became as black as a dungeon, and in an instant a hurricane from the south west burst upon us, blowing away almost an entire suit of sails and breaking tho fore topgallant mast, all sail being set at the tune. "The gale raged with unabated fury for seventeen hours, during which time the ship had not a yard ot canvas^ set, nor any thing to set. The way the rain came down would cause one to think that the earth was agaiu being deluged and the final windup of all things had come at last, but in due time it nil quieted down, when we bent the few remaining sails we had left and sculled on, "We took the so-called northeast trades In 18° north, which, like everything else we have enjoyed this voyage, were as contrary as possible, being from the north to latitude 30° north, then northeast to latitude 40° north, 142° west, when we had two days calm, then southeast and north winds to port" A SERIOUS CHARGE. . Soon after the Yorktown anchored, a man who gave Ids name as John Carr, and said he was one of the crew, appeared at the Smith Harbor Police Station aud told Officer Manning, who was in charge, - that on the passage of the vessel and while James Weston, the boatswain, was over the bow doing some work, wilh a line fast to him, the second uia'.e, Thomas Nolan, deliberately let go the line and the boatswain fell in the water and was drowned. _ He declared that three others of the crew saw Nolan let go the line. The men, he states, had had trouble before, and the sec ond mate did the act out of revenge, Carr said that he was going to the United States Marshal's office to enter a forma! complaint against the second mate, but as that ollice closed at 12 o'clock ou Saturday lie will have to wait until to-morrow. , ■ ■ The name of the boatswain who was lost overboaid was James Weston. He was a native of Maryland, aged 37 years. STABBED IB TH K STOMACH. Joseph Kearney Wields » . Knife In a Second-street Saloon.
