Pasqnale Corte, Italian cou&ul in this city, being interviewed by a reporter, said he was not satisfied at all with the conclusions arrived at by the grand jury and became very much ezcited in discussing it. "I had taken pains to bring before those gentlemen," said Mr. Corte, "all the documents, papers and information in my posession relative to the record of the men implicated in the Hennessy murder. I now find that the grand jury has not used my information as I had given it to them, and that much that I did say was only partly made use of. The oath of secrecy as to what transpired in the grand jury room precludes me from saying any more on that subject. I will send a copy of the report and account of my actions to the home vernment very shortly." I Endorsed By the Papers.

Scheme for a Children's Department at the Great Show. York, May 8. The Chicasro world's fair has opened an eastern head-1 quarters m the Stewart building, No. SSO Broadway, with the intention of remaining there for at least two years. Information in regard to the progress of the fair will be given out by Secretary Delmore Elwell from time to time. It is understood that Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. Potter Palmer are verv much interested in a scheme for a children's department in the fair, and that it will probably be included in the general plan. An outline of such department includes a school where the different methods of teaching in the different countries would j be illustrated, and where children, teach- ers and nurses at their work would be 6hown. A second division would be de-1 voted to children's clothing and comforts j in general. The third division would be made to ' have almost every game in which chil-' dren of all ages are interested, illus- trated. In the fourth division an auditorium is proposed, where, by means of a stereopticon and good lecturers, the child-life of the different nations can be illustrated.

How the Grand Jury Report is Viewed Washington Porter's Request. Washington, May 8. The report of the New Orleans grand jury upon the killing of Italians was a fruitful theme for disussion among people of the department of state "Wednesday. It may be said that the findings of the grand jury excited no surprise, for such a conclusion of the case was expected. The attempt to palliate the infraction of the law by offsetting the alleged attempts at jury-fixing is deprecated by the legal minds of the department, but there is a well-defined opinion that on the whole the outcome of the case will be beneficial in its effect upon the turbulent foreign elements in the United States, inasmuch as it will make cVar to them the fact that they cannot rely upon treaties to escape responsibility to the great "public for their unlawful acts. Has a Treaty Been Violated. The report of the grand jury will, it is expected, reach Secretary Blaine in the course of time and figure in the official correspondence between the United States and Italy. There is reason to believe that in some details it differs from the report made to the department of justice by District Attorney Grant, and notably in the matter of the nationality of the victims. The grand jurv's report found that eight of theja were naturalized American citizens, And that one had i declared his intention to become naturalized. District Attorney Grant, it is believed, found that one of the victims was of Italian nationality, but was an escaped convict, and that another's nationalitv was so doubtful as to make it unsafe to hazard an opinion. So at any rate the Italian complaint will be narrowed down to at least two persons one an escaped convict for although the United States has no naturalization treaty with Italy the last named nation has invariably, through comity, recognized our naturalized citizens as free from amenabilitv to their native govern-menW When the case of these two victims is considered the question will immediately arise were the treaty stipulations "with Italy broken? This question is likely to figure in the correspondence between the two governments as soon as the Italian government is ready to fall reasonably into the diplomatic methods of treating a subject respecting which thev take issue with another nation. Until it appears clearly that the treaty has been violated the Italian case falls to the ground", and the leading diplomatic minds of the state department maintain that this fact cannot be made to appear. The treaty guarantees Italian citizens in this country the same rights and privileges and immunities as .are enjoyed by our own citizens, and it is asserted" that if any Italian subjects were killed at New Orleans they had the same measure of protection that was accorded to the American citizens who were killed at the same time, and for the tame reason and by the same persons. Moreover, their families mav claim in-tleiiiiiitv if it appears that they are entitled "to do so. The same measure of popular vengeance might have been in-ticted upon native citizens of the United States, and altogether it is not clear to the state dr-artment officials that the victims failed In any degree to receive the protection guaranteed by the treaty, which, it may be said, does not, and cannot insure the lives of foreigners. Refused to Talk. Attorney General Miller said he had read the report of the grand jury, but declined absolutely to express any opinion in regard to it or to discuss it in any of its features. Had Not Read It. Secretary Foster, when asked bis riT.irnrm on the report, said he really had not had time to read it, and therefore was not in a position to express an opinion regarding it. Porter May Take a Rest. In Secretary Blaine's absence there has been no forward move in the correspondence. It is learned that Mr, Porter, our minister at Rome, applied to the department of state for leave of absence before the New Orleans affair happened. He has beet constantly on duty since March. 1S89 more than two vears acd it is customary for a minister to have Kiave at least once in a year. Moreover, the sickly season is approach-ins in Rome, so that it is entirely proba-that his reouest will be granted, as indeed would already have been done Lad not tha trouble reached such an acute phase.

San Dikgo, Cal., May 9. The steamship Etata, which was seized Wednesday by the United States marshal, got away Wednesday evening, taking a United States deputy marshal, who was on board, with her. She left the harbor a little after 5 o'clock. Her deiarture was not wholly unexpected, but it was not believed that she would leave as soon as she did. About 5 o'clock the captain's gig, containing himself and five of the crew, pulled out from the foot of H street, and as soon as the captain got on board the anchor was weighed aud the vessel steamed out of the harbor. A Surprise to the Marshal. The United States marshal was not aware evidently that his authority was to be disregarded by the captain of the Etata. for at the time of her sailing he was in quest of the schooner Robert and Minnie, which craft he ha I been ordered to take at any point outside of the jurisdiction of Mexico. The vessel was to be seized as a piratical craft. The marshal and party left at 4 o'clock for Point Loina on a small steam launch. The party was heavily armed and with them were four soldiers from the barracks armed with rirles. Charged With Piracy. The marshal had bejn authorized by the Washington authorities to take the schooner, even on the high seas, under the provisions of the neutrality and piracy laws. Wednesday the marshal and party started for Coronado islands, where the Rolert and Minnie was last seen, with the intention of taking her into custody. She was sighted just outside, but when the craft containing the marshal made in. her direction the schooner sh:rted her course southward, as if desirous of reaching Mexican waters before Teiiig overhauled. The boat containing the maihal's party passed the schooner about two and one-half miles south of the international line, fifteen miles southwest of Point Lorua. The tug got close enough to make out the name '"Robert and Minnie, San Francisco."' which was painted on her stern. The schooner had nearly all sail set, but was so heavily laden that she made but little headway. The movements of the tug, containing the marshal's party, were closely watched by the crew of the schooner. The latter succeeded in reaching Mexican waters before the tug overhauled her. and ths marshal returned for further orders. For the Chilian Insurgents. There is no doubt that the rifles and ammunition on board of the Robert and Minnie was intended for the Chilian insurgents, and that the calling of the Etata at this port was for the object of procuring these arms. It is definitely known that communications passed between the steamship's captain and the captain of th.' schooner. The United States marshal arrived at t!d-; port about midnight Wednesday night, with the news that the schooner had eluded him. Determined to Leave at Any Cost. There is no doubt now that the Chilians were determined to leave the harbor at any cost. One of the deputy marshals, who was stationed at the mouth of the harbor in a small boat to keep a lookout, says that when the Etata passed out the pilot was standing between two armed Chilians, -while four camion guarded both bow and stem. He also says that at least eighty armed Chilians were drarn up on the deck ready for action. This fact shows that while the vessel was in port she had a plentiful supply of men, arms and ammunition. During her stay in port the only arms displayed was one small cannon, while no more than sixty sailors were at any time seen on her deck. The vessel on leaving the harbor shaped her course north and steamed in the direction of San Clein-enta. Would it Be b Violation? San Francisco, May 8. Senator Trumbull, of Chili, who is in the city, claims to have the best of legal advice to the effect that the proposed transfer of arms from the Robert and Minnie, is not a -violation of the neutrality provisions, even if it took place in an American dock. The owners of the schooner are becoming so alarmed over the action that they desire to back out of their charter, but Trumbull, who makes no secret of the fact that he is engaged in doing his utmost to start the Robert and Minnie's cargo to warn the rebels, has settled this difficulty by furnishing an indemnity bond for her value in the event of her seizure and confiscation. CANNOT BE OVERLOOKED. Two New York Firms Likely to Get Into Trouble. New York, May 8. A special to The Recorder from Washington says: Until Secretary Blaine returns to the city there will be no steps taken in regard to the recent developments in Chili affairs, but there is no secret made of the fact that the open participation of the firms of Grace & Company and Flint & Company, in the furnishing of arms to the belligerents in that distracted countrv, has been brought to the attention of the government in a way that cannot be neglected or overlooked. Mr. Flint is understood to be supporting President Balmaceda. and Mr. Grace the congressional revolutionists. STOUTLY DENIED. continue to observe the strictest neutrality in the affairs of Chili. Colonel North did not. however, hesitate to express his conviction that sooner or later the government of President Ealmaceda would crush the revolt and re-establish its undisputed authority. He also said that he heartily approved of the refusal of the Chilian government to accede to mediation. With regard to the nitrate trade, Col, North said it was benefited rather than injured by the war, and he expected that nitrate would soon advance to 10 a ton. Replying to a direct question. Col. North declared that if the Bank of Tarapaca had, as alleged, issued drafts for the Etata purchases, it had done so merely in the ordinary and regular course of business. The Report That English Capital Is Backing the Insurgents. New York, May 8. A special to The Herald from San Francisco says: Advices received here froin San Diego indicate strongly that English capital is back of the Cnilian insurgents. Drafts given in payment for the supplies purchase for Jhe Etata were drawn on tio Bank of LonQon. limited, and the Bank of Tarapaca., both of which are controlled by Col. North, the millionaire Englishman, known as the nitrate king. Col. North Interviewed. London, May 8. It having been stated by the American press that drafts given in pavment for supplies purchased for the Cnilian steamer Etata, seized by the United States officers at San Diego, Cal.. were drawn on the Bank of London, limited, and the Bank of Tarapaca, both of which concerns are controlled by Col. North, an English millionaire, the London representative of the United Press interviewed that gentleman. After Col. North's attention had been directed to the statements referred to. he said that it was absolutely untrue that he had financially, or otherwise, taken sides as between President Balnia-ceda's government and the Chilian in-Knrrectionista. This was true of the past and would continue to be true of the. future..' He and bis associates wtraLJ THEY ASKED TOO MUCH. President Balmaceda Rejects the Insurgents' Demands. Paris, May 8. A dispatch from Chili says: Four congressional delegates have had an interview with President Balmaceda, but there is small hope of the two sides coming to an understanding. The delegates asked Balmaceda to resign, to dismiss his army, to appear in court and justify his conduct, and to allow congress to prepare for a new presidential election. Another dispatch says that President Balmaceda has rejected the demands of the insurgent delegates who have been attempting to bring about some understanding with him by which internecine strife might be terminated. The peace negotiations are, therefore, completely ruptured, and there appears no other alternative than a renewal of the desolar ting struggle which has racked Chili for so many months: President Balmaceda lias given notice of the withdrawal from circulation of the bank notes. The withdrawal will be effected at the rate of 10 per cent, monthly. Payment of impost duties in 6ilver will also be demanded by the president. Rumored Negotiations. Buenos Ayres, May 8. Despatches received here from Chili announce that negotiations looking to a settlement of the civil war are proceeding between President Balmaceda and the leaders of the insurgent or Congressional party. "GOD SAVE THE QUEEN." Onr Consul Refused to Sing and His Recall May Be Demanded. Vancouver, May 8. In regard to his refusal to drink the toast: "The Queen,'' United States Consid Ewing says: "At no time have I ever refused to honor the toast to her majesty, but I did decline to stand up and by standing up participate in the singing of any National anthem other than that of the United States. To do otherwise would be con trary to diplomatic usage, and besides, how would it look if I as a republican and representative of a republican government, were to assist in singing 'Long to Reign Over Us,' and 'God Save the Queen.' " It is now settled beyond all possibility of doubt that his recall will be demanded. Georgia at the Fair. Atlanta, Ga.. May 8. A largely attended convention, with delegates from all parts of the state, met Wednesday to consider the matter of the Georgia exhibition at the world's fair. The convention formally recommended to the legislature the appropriation of $100,000 for that pnrlose. It is not certain that the legislature has the right under the constitution, to make that appropriation, but the majority are of the opinion that it has such a right. A Terrible Revenge. . PrrrsBURa. May 8. Wednesday evening Bridget Cavanangh, employed at the Hotel Schlossick, thrust a rose under the nostrils of Lorenz Creigh, another employe. The rose was perfumed with red iepper, and Creigh grasped a bottle of cayenne from the table, and rubbed a handful in the girl's eyes. She screamed with agony, and in" the struggle the dining-room was wrecked. The girl's eye-sight is hopelessly lost, and Creigh is in jail. "Old Hutch" in Boston. Boston, May 8. Mr. B. P. Hutchinson, the grain speculator, continues his eccentricities in this city. Wednesday he purchased a dress suit from a tailoring establishment and invited the salesman to a champagne dinner with him at Youmr's hotel in the evening. BOUNDLESS. An Re- Englishman's Opinion of the sources of the United States. London, May 8. Sir James Kitson, president of the Iron and Steel institute, referring to his recent visit to the United States, said m an address in this city that the resources of the United States were boundless, and that whether protection or free trade carried the day the United States were bound to become great manufacturers of iron and steel. Sir James Kitson added that though the iron furnaces of the United States were producing larger quantities of iron than are produced in the iron furnaces of England, there were compensations in the latter country in economy and in quality of material. . Coal in the United States, he said, was abundant and accessible, and he warned both producers and workingmen in England to pause in their demands in view of the illimitable resources of the United States. CRAWLED OVER THE LINE. Thousands Witness a Novel Settlement of a Tied Election. Crawfordsvilxe, Ind., May 8. On Monday last occurred the city election at Waynetown, Montgomery county. William Simms and Frank Hollowell tied for the office of treasurer, each gentleman receiving 323 votes. To decide the question as to which one should hold the office, a foot J race was held Wednesday between the men. r The race was a 200 yard dash, and several thousand people were on the ground betting on the outcome. Simms seemed a sure winner until he tripied and fell when within three yards of the goal. Hollowell fell over him, but crawling over the line won the race amid the howls and cheers of the crowd. Hollowell was duly sworn in. REVOLUTION IN COSTA RICA. A State of Siege Declareil and Personal Gnarantees Suspended. Panama, May 8.

Those in the Vesuvius to Be Tested Thoroughly By tho United States Government in Order to Positively Decide the Question of Whether It is Practical to Aim the Vessel Instead of the Gun Might Do for Coast Defense. Washington, May 9. Within a very few days Secretary Tracy will announce the board of officers who will make a final test of the efficiency of the dynamite cruiser Vesuvius. Although the Vesuvius has been afloat for about three years, it has never been shown that her dynamite guns were of any practical use. She has popularly been held up as the means by which foreign invaders were to be repelled and monster iron clads were to be blown to atoms. But so far as the navy department knows, the dynamite guns of the Vesuvius have not been demonstrated to have any special death-dealing capacity. In speaking with two of the commodores on duty at the navy department, they treated the subject with more amusement than seriousness and were disposed to look upon the Ve-suvius's dynamate guns as experiments which the coming test would show to have little practical value. One of them explained that the main trouble with the Vesuvius gun was that it was immovable. It could not be aimed by lowering or raising the muzzle, or moving it from side to side, as the gun-carriage was rigid throughout. This made it necessary to aim the boat instead of aiming the gun, and it was by no means certain or likely that the boat could be moved and aimed so as to make accurate fire on :i moving target. This accuracy of aim would be the matter tested by the board about to beUhp- Eointed. All the tests heretofore made ave been with dynamite guns on shore, firing at fixed targets afloat. If the tests are entirely successful the question of coast defense and of our naval equipment will be much simplified. The navy department has no special claim on the dynamite gun, as its projectors have long had the gun on the European market. Italy can make the same use of it as this country. It is said that China has taken steps to secure a monopoly of the use of the gun if it proves entirely effective in the test. TO BE SIGNED AT ONCE. Oar Reciprocity Treaty With Spain to Be Consummated This Week. Madrid, May 8. The draft of the treaty of commerce between the United States and Spam was sent to the Spanish minister at Washington last week, with instructions to sign it immediately. It is expected the necessary signatures will be appended by the end of this week. Although the Spanish government maintains the utmost reserve in regard to the treaty, even Tefusiifg to communicate it to the Cuban deputies, information from a reliable source confirms the report that coal, petroleum, machinery and fats will be admitted free into Cuba and Porto Rico, and the present duty on flour will be reduced one-half, in exchange for the free admission into the United States of sugar, coffee and cocoa. The deputies from' Castile continue to oppose the treaty on the ground that it will render it impossible for the Spanish flour to compete with the American product in the Antilles, but they did not demand a vote upon the treaty, as the government has the power to sign it without obtaining special authority from the chambers.

(Contributed by Boss, Howe & Alerrow, Ship and Steamship Brokers.) Our freight market is firm and as tonnago is scarce, very likely freights will advance still further. For medium size vessels we quote f 4, 17s, 6d, to 5 to V. K. or Continent, and for large tonnage 4, 13s, 6d, to 4, 15s. To the Mediteranean we quote 4, 15s, to 4, 17s, 6d, and to the Adriatic 5 to 5, 2s, 6d. To Rio and Santos we are offered $14.50 for handy sized vessels, and to the Kiver Plate very little doing, and quoted nominally at $14 to $14.50. Coast wise tonnage is very scarce and very little doing in that line of business. We quote $7 to $7.50 to Northern ports. There is good demand for prompt steam tonnage for the few orders in the market, and we quote 4, 17s, 6d, to 5, to V. K. or Continent, according to size and position. miscellany.
