Oulveston ) , .May 17. The American warship , Charleston , and the Chilian man-of-war , Es'tnowlda nro lying nt anchor near the entrance to the harbor of Acapulco. The Chilian captain says that his vessel has not called nt any American port , consequently , ho says , It Is not probable that the United States authorities will Interfere j"lththo movements of either himself or his vessel. An officer of the Esiwru'.da , In reply to a question put to him In thn telegraph office at Acapulco as to the probability of an old fashioned son light between the Charleston anil the Esmoraldn , said In a jocular and rather ambiguous way : "Oh , the Itntn Is already out of danger. She has plenty of coal and provisions to carry her to her destin ation. " This remark has given rise4 to the report that the Itata coaled at sea and pro ceeded to her destination , while the Cnlllan war sh'p steamed for Acapulco to throw the United Stntes authorities off the track. El Universal , the only government organ that bus so fur made any mention of the ar rival of tl.o Esmernhln at Acapulco , says thnt In addition to thn Ksmeralda other Chilian war ships nro expected ut Moxlct.n ports. A telegram from Guatemala stutos that a schoouer captain , Just arrived , reports hav ing seen two strange vessels under full sail proceeding In a southerly direction. Sx.v FitiNnsfo , Cala. , May 17.The Chronii'lo ' has received n dispatch * from Aeu- pulco from a naval ofllrer on board tbo Charleston. The dispatch Is dated Saturday and says In part : The Charleston arrived early this morning , passing close to tlio. Esmerulda ( is she entered the harbor , the Charleston anchoring ami clearing the ship for nctlon. to bo ready fur emergencies. Liit"r in the day a formal interview took place between Captain Homy of the Churlos- ton and tno captain of the KsmoraUln , the latter stutlnc that the Charleston should never take the Itntn until the Esmeralda was sunk. Captain Rwny replied : " 1 have oiilcrs to UIKO the Hutu The fact that Iho KsmtTulda Is present will make no dlflVrenco wtihtevur. " In Acapulco a light is expected f the Itata appears. oiMrioHioii VMM i oui ii > . WASIIIXITTON , May 17. No In formation has been received at Iho navy department re- gnrdlng the Itata , nor have any further orders been seut to Iho Charleston Secro- tnry Tracy said tonight ihnt ho expected nothing now from the Ohnrlcston for nt least twenty-four hours , and that the situation rcu.alns practlcnily thosamo as It was yes- terdav , Cominnnilor McCnnn , ho said , would remain as the spinrr ufllcor In command of the naval force on the I'acillc until the Chll- Inn dlRlculty wns settled , nnd would ulti mately return to his command of the South Atlantic section , when Commodore- Brown would assume command of the I'ncll'.c sta tion. It is thought the Charleston will tone at Icnst two days nnd perhaps longer to coal , us ship * of her class cannot load fast owing to the locution of some of the conl bins. This will depend , however , entirely upon the quantltv of tiio coil she ticoils to 111 ! her bunkers. By the tlmu she has coaled some now light may bo thrown on the whereabouts of the Itatu , but for the next two days the Charleston will likely remain at Acnpulco , In the meantime keeping n lookout for the Itata niul watching her consort , the Esmcrnlda. An ofllcl'il of the navy department said tonight that It was not likely the Ksmcralda would seek to procure coal at any of the sea coast towns on the Central American or Columbian coasts , as thcso countries would undoubtedly act ns the Mexican authorities have done In refusing to violate the neutrality laws by nldlng tlio Insurgents to replenish their coal supply or procure munitions of war. I'sineralduVan Short of Coal. SAX DIIXIO , Cala. , May 17. Purser Walter of the Pacific const steamship Ncwbnru , when Interviewed today , said the Chilian man-of-war Esmeralda was short of coal when the Newburn passed her on the 10th lust , off San Lucas. Olllcors of the Es- mcrulda visited the Ncwburn at San Jose del Cabo next day and said their desti nation was some port In the United States whcro they could got coal. They also In quired as to the quantity of coal the New- burn was carrying mid seemed disappointed when in formed that the steamer had only n small quantity. Walter says ho has no doubt It was tnc purpose of the Ksmeralda to hold the Nowburn up nt sea and take her fuel from her , but she pave up the Idea when she found that the amount carried oy the passenger steamer was so small. The purser corroborated the captain's story about seeing another war ship much larger than the Esmcralda on the night of the 1st. Ho thinks this also must have boon an Insurgent ship , for the otllcers of the Ksmeralda know of her whereabouts and did not appear to bo alarmcil , ns would bnvo been the raso If the ship had been Bulmaccda's Imperial. The oftlcors of the Esmeralda refused to tell tlio nunio of the other ship when asked. LAST WKKIi'H JIUSMXESS. What the HcturiiH from the Vnr oils Clearing HOIISCH tilioiv.

Alllnnco anil Labor Leader * Opposed . to the Cincinnati Convention -Will Try to Prevent a Nomination. WASIIINOTOX BtmmuTiir. BBB , I 513 FouimiKXTii STHUKT , WASHIXOTOX , D. C. , May ir.f There Is n good denl of Inlk Just now around the treasury department about the exportation of gold which has been golnir on so heavily for the past few weeks. Over $7,000,000 , In gold was shipped across the Atlantic last week. The total ex ports for the year aggregate something llko $ . ' 17,000,000. This was all In our coin and is to bo recoinod Into the Imprints of ether nations. Most of It will soon appear with thu mint stamp of Alexander HI , nud will pa.'s current ns the coin of Uussla. The Hus- sian government Is not , as reported , trying to get her finances upon a gold basis , for it has long boon upon that basis. Hussla with her vast tcnltory , extensive military nnd naval equipments , and constant neces sity of making largo payments for armament , etc. , In nU'purts of the world , has for many yours kept on deposit In the three or four principal money centers of the world gold aggregating on the averageulout ? 100,000,000 , und so much of our gold ns has gene to that country of late wns lor the purpose of rccoln- ngo to maintain the Husslnn deposit. The exports of gold have bosn through the means of gold and legal tender redemptions. The foreign governments purchase the o certifi cates at the banks In Now York city and t.iko them to the sub-treasury there , where tbo coin Is paid out upon demand. The certifi cates are bought from letters ol credit pur chased In London , nnil the effect of the trans action Is a constant draining of New York's gold coin supply and an in crease of her credit In London. Wo do not receive any real money In return. We simply accept London exchange. This would tend to decrease the rates for London nnd continental uxahnngo and Increase tbo value of the coin und nlso our Interest. It also has the effect of dumping In uron us some of our securities sold in European mar kets. It retur..s to us our own paper. Tlio result Is not desirable. It doesn't rcqulrn a philosopher to forescij from the events in this line during the past four months what the result of the unlimited coinage of silver would bo. Wo would soon have foreign coin Instead of either our gold , gold certificates , or legal tenders , and a redemption day would bo impossible If wo would avoid bankruptcy. To undertake to pay in gold when it could not bo commanded , would bo ruin pure and slmplo. To permit all the countries In the world to exchange silver for our logul tenders redeemable in gold , or our gold or silver certificates would mean disaster. All of our.customs and other duos would within a short tlmo bo paid In the silver or foreign countries , and our gold would bo under for eign Impresses. Already our gold Is going from us at the rate of $75,000,000 a year , and the silver coin is pouring In from every di rection and no ono wants It. And 3fot silver Is not regarded In the treasury department as a bad or undesirable money. On the con trary it novur hud a higher standard than now. and never before was it moro in tha hands of its friends. The lesson being taught this country at this tlmo is that It should throw around Its gold vaults and supply of loirnl tenders such restrictions nnd protection as will retain them for the people they wore created for , and not lay down the bars atidin- vlto the surplus of Europe. Till ! C1XC1.NXATI CONVENTION. Representatives Jerry Simpson nnd Featherstono , Sonntor PclTer , Dr. McCuno and Secretary Beaumont , farmers' alliance magnates , have loft for Cincinnati , where they will keep on the outskirtsof the national convention which is to bo held thcro begin ning on Tuesday. They attend the conven tion , not for the puriroso of lending their presence toward its success , but to try nnd still the tldo which begins to carry the farm ers' alliance oft Its feet and commit it to n thir.l party movement. Just before they loft Washington your correspondent talked"with Dr. McCune , chairman of the executive com- mlttco of the farmers' alliance , and with Nelson A. Dunning , the edltorof the National Economist , otllrlul orcon of the farmers' alliance , ana from them secured the atlltudo of the ofllcials of the farmers' alllnnco against this third party convention. Dr. McCuuo is the foremost man of the farmers' all Ian co and is the executive head who shapes Its policy , although It has a nominal head In President.Polk. Ho said that the Cincinnati convention wns the result of a call on the part of u number of radicals. The call bore the nnmos of about a hundred men , many of whom never know that their names had boon signed. Editor Dunning interposed the suggestion that the delegates of the Cin cinnati convention would bi made up largely of socialists , nationalists , Bcllamists and ether followers of political fads. 'Dr. Mc Cune continued that it would practically bo n rejuvenation of the defunct old Greenback party nnd would bring together some of the old tall twisters who usctl to mnko politics lurid during the palmy days of groonbackistn. Although ho Is not going to attend the con vention , Dr. McCuno and his friends will do all they can to prevent it from ombarassing tha nlllaneo movement by proposing a dis tinct , political party and a presidential cantli- clato for ISO' , ' . Tnus far nil of tbo nlllaneo bodies throughout the country , except these of Kansas have repudiated this third party movement. Sonntor Peffer and Representative Simp son , while not proposing to mnko xvar on the convention , will endeavor to bring nbout a cctisur/ntivo course which will avoid precipi tating a third party question. Ralph Hean- moiit , who Is the head of the citizens' al liance , an offshoot of the farmers' alliance , will also take a conservative pos ition and endeavor to side track third party movement. Dr. McCuno says that this con certed action is the result of a plcdgo entered into between Master Workman Powdcrly for the Knights of Labor , himself for the farmers' alliance , and Mr. Beaumont for tbo citizens' alliance , and a member of the colored formers' alliance. They have agreed to keep out of politics and lot nlono the matter of a presidential candidate for 1832. The question was asked ot Editor Dunning who would bo the probable presidential candidate In case the convention at Cincin nati went off on a tangent and forced the farmers' alllnnco and otticr Id ml red organ izations Into a third party movement. Ho said that subject had boon discussed among the alliance ofllcials and It wns the general fci'ling that no man In the organization was sufficiently conspicuous to commend attention ns a presidential candi date nnd secure anything llko'a decent fol lowing. Ho Inuchod at the iden of Senator Stanford being the nlllanro candidate. Ho said Senator Stanford was not a member of the alliance und was not eH'-ihlonsn member. The Stanford bill was designed to help rich farmers anil rich men generally while tbo alliance was nftur law to help the poor formers. Senator Pefler would not do. So far us the two old parties nro concerned , re cent events , they said , hdva inclined the olllcials of the alliance towards the republi cans. Editor Dunning mentioned the letter of John S. Clarkson accepting the presidency of the republican national league clubs. Editor Dunning said that ox-President Cleveland was constantly wlilonln ? tbo breach between the alliance and the demo cratic party by his stubborn position against silver coinage. KXl-OHTS OF UllP.OtSTri'PS. When the McKlnloy tariff bill was under consideration In congress last summer the democrats stated In every possible form of language that If the ineusuro became a law it would offend nearly all foreign nations and they would refuse to p&Uonlio us ; that our exports of grain , meat , etc. , would cease. A practical demonstration of tbo"bperAtIon of the now tnrllT law glycs tha Ho to this state ment , ns usual. * v " The special bulletin1 Just issued from the statistical branch of the trotfUiry depart ment i , showing the exports of b'tvadsttiffs for last 1 month , April , discloses thQ fact that al though our cereal crops last year were short and It was naturally .oxpedtcd that our exports would fall below these of the crop crown In 1880 , they have been far hoove. The total exports of wheat from f the principal ports of the country dur ing 1 lust month amounted ' in dollars to fl.S.'H- air ami bushels 5,0KI,8t)0 ) , against ) , SOtt-U > 2 In April , IS'.K ' ) . and 4,5.'Ull0 [ ! bushels thosnmo month The wheat flbur In April , ISfll , aggregated $ o.ll7Kr ! > against JT.'J7 ! < ) ! i50 In April , 1SOO. The Increase of exports In nearly every other farm article the past month l was proportionately great over April c f lost year. It thus appears , as the republicans have leclnrcd , that the people of foreign countries ivill buy where they can do the best In splto f tariff laws. UNFAVOIUIILC CIKUUMSTASCtS. It Is unfortunate for the postal clerks of .ho country who are leading in the movement o hnvo a law passed which \\illglvo dis abled employes of their ! class a pension or pay their widows and orphans so much In i-uso of accident which results In death , that other moves of a klndmd nature nro bolnp : nndo by clerks in HUP * of duty under the : overnnicnt whoso lives , are the least cndan- , crcd of any class of persons to bo found In any walk of life. It all-has caused congress men In this city to Inquire If there is not a movement toward centralization of federal olllco power. The pension ofilco clerks have inaugurated un Insurunco company , among themselves which has a preponderance of pension ele ments In it. The members of tbo combina tion pay so much a month' und receive when they reach a certain old ago so much annual pension a sufllclent amount to keep them from want. Should thoynncot with nccldont or death there nro fixed payments. It Is on the assessment plan. A kindred organiza tion Is spreading in the other departments. There is already a Civil Service club , with a splendidly furnished club house , and the federal employes stand together to got nil they can out of Undo St m. First they got nil the salary possible , with as few hours of labor each day us they cun. with various holidays. Then they organi/.o for self-pro tection to retain their positions. And finally they nrrango for pensions , first from their own resources , and finally from the govern ment. As stated , congressmen In the city view thcso organizations : tis having a tontf- onoy to create projudlco against the move ment to pension thn postal clerks , nnd .say they emphasize the feeling abroad that there Is a trend toward the centralization of fed eral otllco power. now HOUTI.NE is IUNDMP. Ono of the greatest difficulties which every ncomintr secretary of a hirpo department haste to face is to learn us promptly as possible the routine business beford him. Administra tions come and administrations go , but the government goes on forever and questions irlso day after day , irrespective of the ad- k'ont or departure of secretaries. Secretary Foster is the latest ofilcfal'to meet the neces sity of mastering in a month' th'o accumulated work of years. It has been suggested that tbo best way to ovorcomd this diniculty would bo the appointment In eve'rV department of ono or two permanent , under secretaries. These men being permanent-would natur ally bo Informed always' of all the business before tbo department , and being independ ent of political change would devote them selves entirely to their work , so that the In coming secretary would find on assuming the duties of his ofilco a thoroughly equipped as sistant who could post'lii ' m on all the matter coming before him , and who would havo.no motlvoto , nut otherwise * Kan honestly in bis advice. As a matter of fn f-pvory incoming secretary retains 'for ' ijiq'nlto a tlmo the chief cleric of ; bs department , und in the state department ; this principle is recognized even farthiir. There nro at present two assistant -Secretaries who have held ever from past administrations , and the chief ot the consular bureau , Dr. Sinclair , has held the ofllco for'at least a score of years. Nor will any incoming secretary over think for n moment Of demanding their resignations. Cbiof CJerk Fowler of the postofllco department bos hold his office for yenr after year. In other departments there are men in important offices who have been thcro so long that they have become abso lutely indispensable to the conduct of the ofllco. It has boon suggested , therefore , to make these men permanent ; olllcers , Instead of making their permanency depend , as It does now , on the will of eacli succeeding secre tary. The ofllce would 'hardly be a plum for politicians , because it would have absolutely no patronage and would : rtfqulro a technical knowlediro of its dutlth that no politician could possibly havo. i Wll. ! , UiST : Tins' 8UMME11.

OME OF THE MORE NOTABLE ARRIVALS. ionic of the Southern Contingent Kicking About llcnrcuuntiulon ISvcrybody nt Sea as to Ilia Outcome. CINCINNATI , O. , May 17. Tlio coming week vlll bring to this city n political gathering of duo form , In whoso nctlon thcro Is aviilo nterest. It Is not n convention In the usunl cuso of the term , for it has no party call as a Imsls. It Is perhaps best described as n nn- lonul union conference. Originally It was silled , not by the farinurs'nlllance convention \t Ocnla , Kin. , last year , but by members of ho convention , and the tltno sot for Fcbru- , ry S3 , In this city. That call wns nddrosaed to nil who have teed up for Independent political nctlon on he question of finance , transportation , labor ind land , nnd asked for delegates to n na- lonnl conference from the following crgan- zatlons : The independent party , by Its rep- esentntlvos ; people's party , by iu repre sentatives ; the Into federal nnd confederate loldlors , by its representatives ; farmers' ul- lance of the north and south ; Partners' Mu- ual Bonollt association ; the Knights of La- ) or ; the colored farmers' nlllaneo and all other Industrial organizations that support ho principles of the St. Louis agreement of December , 1SS9. The ratio of representation vas ono delegate from each con- rresslotml district by stnto orgnnlzn- lion nnd two nt largo from the state , not less than three delegates to eaeh district organization , nnd not less than ono to each county organization. In addition to this ho editor of each newspaper supporting can didates nominated on the St. Louis agreement ivas Invited to bccomo a gclcgnto , This cell ivns signed by about seventy persons from seventeen states. It met with objection from various sources , > artly because its purpose was announced to 30 for n national union party bused on the undamental ideas of llnaneo. trans portation , labor and land. This op position had the effect of necessitating i delay nnd the dnto of the conference was changed to May 10. The state executive committee of the people's party of Indiana , composed of some of the original signers of : ho call , enlarged the representation so as to neludo the American federation of labor trades unions ami traJes assemblies , the fed eration of rallwaj employes and 'the nation alists by their representatives. The citizens' alliance of Kansas , at a con tention nt Topoku , February 7 , reissued the : all , staling the object to bo to ndopt a platform - form and make such arrangements for the conllict of 18'JJas the conference may deem Ittlntr. Prom this outline of Its call U Is plain that diniculty will arise in settling questions If any anso upon credentials , and also that the real purpose of the conference Is not clearly dollned. Already two views are being urged n various quarters upon the question of Forming a third p.irty , and It has gone so far in some places as to cause organizations op posed to the third party to refuse to send delegates , while others are electing delo- rates for the avowed purpose of defeating the formation of a third party. The conference promises to bo ono not without a.dinieut ] toak-boforo It , but likely to bairtoftho best wisdom of Its delegates. The advance guard of delegates has been straggling in all through the day , and about two hundred of the thousand or more that ro expected to participate lii the conference ore on the ground tonight. Many of them are men whose rough attire , bronzed faces and horny hands betokoa long ncqalntanco wltU the plow and harrow. Others boar names that arc prominently Identified with iconooilc and radical movements. Among ; heso nro ox-Congressmen Wcllcr of lown , nero familiarly known ns'Calamity Weller1' ; General Secretary Hayes of the Knights of Labor ; W. O. > umony , editor of the Wall Street farmer , and president of the recently formo dNatfonnl Union league ; O. Wnshburn of Boston , president of tha North ern Industrial alliance ; M. A. Green of JJoston , Colonel P. Norton of Chicago , W. T. Wakcflcld of Lynn , Mass , , Nationalist club , John II. Couch of Fort Scott , brother of the deceased Oklahoma boomer , and C. II. I'oat , of Georcia , Iho alliance leader of that state. The temporary lion of the hour Is Farmer II. L. Brian of WInn county , Louisiana , whoso accoptancy of a delegate's mission necessitated his riding ilfty miles on a planta tion pony to the nearest railroad station. Ills credentials ticnr the signatures of 1,200 grangers out of a total voting strength of all parties of 1,700 that nro in the county , A good many of the southern grangers are kicking over the existing condition of affairs , contending that It is unjust after having trav eled long distances in order to represent the views of their respective organizations , their votes and consequent Influence In shaping the gathering should bo swamped by what Is termed packed delegates from near-by points. An effort was mada tonight to bring about a feeling in favor of the adoption of the unit rule , and unless some such solution of the rules is found there will seemingly DO trouble just as sure ns the boily gets down to bus iness. As to the outcome of tbo conference , there was not a delegate found in town tonight who was willing to express himself with anything of confidence or certainty. There are two elements of widely diverging ten dencies , Ono Is desirous that the confer ence shall bring a new pany into existence , give Its namu and erect n platform of declar ation nnd principles. These are mostly from the north and west. The southerners an the other hand deprecate hasty action nnd urge that it would bo moro politic simply to reaf firm the vlows ennunclated in the St. Louis nnd Oculn platforms , appoint nn executive committee to continue the propaganda nnd assemble again next spring to determine whether A third party can bo brought Into existence , and , if so , christen It and place Its candidates in the field for the next presi dential election. Stragglers nlso are hero from Mnlne , Ken tucky , Texas , Tennessee , Minnesota nnd otticr states , but the full delegations will not begin to arrive until tomorrow. The Kansas contingent is enrouto on a special train of ten cars und will bo met in the mornIng - Ing by the reception committee of all the delegates In town and with n couple ot brass bands escorted to headquarters In triumph. Despite the fact that it is styled n couvcn tion , it Is almost apparent thus early that this coming gathering will bo a big mass meeting. There has seemingly been no Idea of conforming to a basis of roprcsen tntlon. While It is anticipated that two- thirds of the states will bo represented , yet Kansas with her 000 and Ohio with nearly as many moro will control , according to present Indications , at least a third of the total votes that will bo cast on every proposition. Ham ilton county nlono furnished credentials tor over ono hundred participants , representing such elements ns the Knight * of Labor , city alliance , Kallw.iy Employes' association , municipal congress , united labor party , com posed of adherents of Henry George , and the Bellamyitcs. Messrs.

On the other hand such delegates as Wollci of lown , and Green of Boston , are working hard to bring about the formal inauguration of a third party and are asking , "What clso nro wo hero forj" HUan open secret that the Knights of Labor men , who wlll IMS reinforced tomorrow by General Master Workman Powderlv , Lecturer Italph Beaumont and Jonn Devlin of the executive board , are nero to light for tlm ) , with the view of putting off definite action until after the meeting of the farmers alliance in February next.

At 1 o'clock this morning 400 negro miners with their families arrived at Stone Siding , a small station on .ho Northern Pacific , about fifty miles from icro. The negroes will Immediately march .0 the coal mines of the Oregon Improvement company at Franklin. They were recruited n Hannibal , Mo , lt Is said , by Superintendent P. B.

By rofuslng to call out ; he trainmen on the Northwestern road the supreme council of the united orders appear to hnvo possibly opened the way to the ulti mate disruption of the federation. The coun cil's action was severely condemned nt n meeting of the switchmen hold today. It was nt n session of tno grand lodge of switchmen , and the members discussed the proceedings of the council at length. At ono time the ledge determined to withdraw from the federation , but eventually decided to let mutters rest us they are at present , trusting to time and op portunity to bring about an improved condi tion of things. Grand Master Sweeney of the switchmen'- , association xaid the switchmen had been vic tims of a diabolical conspiracy "The train men and firemen by the comilvanco of their oflldals , " said he , "conspired with the Northwestern railroad to drlvo put the switchmen , and they did so temporarily. Wo shall bide our time , however , and will pay thorn back with Interest before wo get through with them , " The Chicago switchmen's union was busy debating tonight whether or not to anply to bo taken back.
