General An tonio Ezeta and Ills fellow refugees arc pris oners at last by authority of the Unltcii States cJIstrlct court. tlie warrants of ar rest were served this afternoon. Earlly tills morning the local federal officials re ceived notification that the differences be tween the Navy department and the ! ) . - partmont of Justice ImH been compromised , at least In a measure , and that the nauil authorities of Mara Island would permit the United States marshal to nerve the. war rant ! ! . The Navy dcpirimcnt maintained Us position on one point , however. It would not furnish transportation for the marshal and his deputies to the cunboat. The mar shal , too , was determined to uphold Hie department of the government which lie represents. Ho refused to charter a tine , and there seined a possibility that tlio refugees would be left to dto of old age an the high seas. lr. ) CalEeron , the local consul of the Salvadorean government , finally Inter ceded , however , and prevented any serious rupture between these clashing dcpartmctils of the United States government. lid wtnt into his own purse for money and char tered a tug. At C o'clock this morning ILiu tug steamed out through the heads. ( On board were Consul Culcleron , United Statics Marshal Baldwin , four deputy United Stales marshals and Lletitemirat Stoney , U. S. N. , who went as a representative of the author ity of the Mara Inland -naval - station to cer tify to Marshal Baldwin as a reprcsenttn- tlve of the United Startes government , and to permit Commander Thomas of the Hen- nlngton to receive the marshal und his depu ties on bonrd. The t K. which , singularly enough , wns named I Die "Hellef , " arrived alongside the llennlnston about 9 o'clock In the inornlns. After the formalttlc'i necessary to fully sustain the dignity of ttlie Navy department were over , Marshal Uahlwln and his depuLIrs went on board the unntioat. The tugboat Hellef then steamed am ay , heading fcr I Ma port. Immediately afterwards the Dcrinlmg- ton's --ihars were hoisted. She hud teen lylnc ui anchor near ( the Faralone Islands , about thirty miles from port. A few min utes later the HcnnlnKton was steaming toward San l-'ranclsco bay , but as one ol her engines Is disable ! , she mudu only s'low progresn. At 2 o'clock this afternoon the Rznnltmton steamed Inn through the GoMcn Gate. That the refugees arc now under airest there Is no doullt , for Marshal Baldwin and his deputies went on board the gunboat for the purpose of Lining them prisoners when the lleiinlnctoii should have passed within the three-mile limit.

The health olltesr was notified of hoi arrival. This fact Boron gave rise to a re port along the water front that the gun boat has twenty-three * cases of yellow fcvci on board. Ncltht-r L.lentonant Stoney noi Consul Calderon would verify or contrwllci the report or say an ) thing about the nrres of the refugees. The yellow fever yarn finds believers , however. Btnrshal Baldwin ant Ills deputies arc still on board the crnlsei with the men supposed to be the prisoners 'When they will come nulioro It Is not known but It Is believed that : the opera bouffn leal urea of the Ezeta case arc ubout over nm that the serious features of this Intcrnatkmn complication will dcniaiml public attention to morrow.

A Blucflclds , N.caras a , letter to the Associated press , via New Orleans , which arrived tonight , says : Shortly lefore noon on the IGth a most outrageous move en ithe port of the Nlca- raguans wns made public. The greater part of the troops were to sail nt 7 o'clock In the evening on the Yuli , a coasting steamer , nnd Mlnlslcr Madrlz decided to send wllh them those persons whom he thought wire guilty of firing on the Nlcaraguan fine , Early in the morning1 Ccnsul Hqtch , the British representative' , was sent for , and when he responded to the call he wasplaced In a room as a prlwmer. This mo\o vi.is kept very quiet , and as he was not allowed to communicate with the outsldo no one knew ol Ibis arrest for Imrs. About 11 o'clock , when a Mr. Lampton called at the building to secure permission to have cer tain freights released , lie also wns placed under -arrest. Then Mr. Henry Brown , an englishman , called to assist Mr. Lampton In getting the freight , when he too was ar rested. Their next move wns against Cap tain C. \Vlltbanks , the American who accepted the poultlcti , . as judge under the MosqulU rule. H. C Ingram , J. 0. Tliomas , H. A. Hoilfioson , Washington Glover. JcTin Kyler and George Hodgcson , all Mosquito Creoles , were arrested. After these men were detained on hour OT more the Ameri cans In the ne ghborh&od were attracted by the signs they made from the windows. The English olllccrs statlcncd on shore as usual went to the building to learn the cause of Hatch's absence and were told they were nde-r arrest. Mr Hatch dropped a paper from the side window telling of Ihis arrest nnd tne desire ct the Spaniards to take him and hta companions to Nicaragua. A boat wa.s Immediately sent to the English cruiser and the news distributed along the foreign quarter. Consul Zeat of the United States -\vts \ notified end called on Mndrlz. The latter said these persons were to go to ho Interior to stand trial. Ho could not Ret : nough. evidence to convict them n&w , but : ie was sure they were Implicated.

The owners of tlie Yula. when told of the arrest , positively stated that their boat should not leave , and thus Uie only transport which can sUn.l the sea U taken away from them. It Is , of course , useless for these NIcaraguans to cause the arrc&t , fet even should Captalh Sutnner submit to the actions of Madrlz , the American population would demand the release of Innocent men by force of arms If Tieccssary. However , the commander of the Columbia Is expected be fore iiicht and tlie English also. Vher speaking to General Lacayo just after the news was made public , It was learned that Madrlz had taken these steps upon hta owr advice. It was not legal to take these mrr to Managua , said Lic.iyo , and lie couK show It Jn the laws of Nicaragua. Such c move on the part of the NIcaraguans. comlnf as It does after three Insults 'to the Ainerl' can flag , deserves the most severe action and 1C eier naval officers were called iipoi to exert their autliorlty , the time has ar rived to do to. The American populstlcr Is greatly excited , and -were It not that thcj have confidence In their country's agcnts tin bullet rlildled buildings would suffer anothei attack , Ibut this lime someone would b ( severely hurt. The situation Is serious , foi no one feels safe , but It Is hoped tlia Nicaragua will be taught a lesson that wll not be forgotten by the men on ( ho Mohawl and Columbia. _ ji.\ rum SA n.

My for Is that he attempt of this clement foreign to the > arty with Its pernicious doctrine to fasten tslf to the republican party will drive way hundreds of thousands of honest votes. The movement Is , In fact , nothing more nan a revival of the ancient 'know-nothing' octrlne which , although nhorl lived , was ot without Its effect upon our politics. The epubllcan party hag ever bem outspoken ipon every public question , and has alwajs ind the courage of Its convictions. I do ot think It will dodge this Isiue now. "The republican party Is less friendly than ny other party to such doctrines , and will lot fall. In my Judgment , to ine't this Iscnc , f It can be called such , manfu ly.
