EZETi UNDER ARREST. San Salvador Refugees Landed at San Francisco. EX-PRESIDENT MILS HIS STORY, Oflenseg Ohargnil Against the nflfilfteeii E*- plained by them an Belngt Committed White Attempting to JmlflM tlm l,nw, of the Country—Claim They Were Kept on fh$ nenttlnfttoh Agnlnut Their Wfeltet SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 24.—General Antonio Ezeta and his fellow refugees are prisoners at last by authority of the tTnited States district court. The warrants of arrest were nerved Thursday afternoon. Early in the morning the local federal officials received notification that the differences between the navy department and the department of jus 1 tice had been compromised, at least in b measure, and that the naval authorities of Mare Island would permit the United States marshal to serve the warrants. The navy department maintained'its position on one point, however. It would not furnish transportation for the marshal and his deputies to the gunboat. The marshal,'ton, was determined to uphold the department of government which he represents. He refused to charter a tug, and there seemed a possibility that the refugees would be left to die of old age on the .high seas. Dr. Galderon, the local consul of the Salvadoran government, finally inteiceded, however, and prevented any serious rupture .between these clashing departments of the • United States government. -.He went into his owu purse for, money and chartered • tug.- At 8 a. m. the tug steamed out through the heads. On hoard were Consul Calderon. United States Marshal Baldwin, four deputy United States marshals and Lieutenant Stoney, U. S. N., -who wem as representative of •the authority of the Mare Island naval'station 'to certify to Marshal Baldwin as a .representative of the United- States; government and to permit Commander Thomas of the Bennington to receive the marshal and his deputies on board. The tug, which fiingnlarly enough was named the "Re lief," arrived alongside -the Bennington about'b o'clock. Dignity of the Department Suntn^nexl. : After the formalities necessary to fully sustain, the dignity of the navy department were over, Marsha) Baldwin and his deputies went on board the gurjboat. The tug boat Relief then steamed away, heading for this port. . Immediately afterwards the Bennington's anchors were hoisted. She had'been lying at anchor near the -Faralone islands about 80 miles from port. The 'Bennington did not go into quarantine, as.-was.at first thought, • but steamed directly to Mare island. The prisoners were landed in San .Francisco and are now confined in the federal building here in custody of Marshal Baldwin. The five refugees will be taken before United States District Judge Morrow 1 , who issued the warrants for their arrest. Then will begin'the proceedings • which will 'determine.whether the five men shall be given their freedom or be taken back to San Salvador to bo shot by their political enemies, the successful revoln tionists. There in a probability the habeas corpus proceedings will be brought on behalf of the prisoners before (he extradition matter is examined into. In this event, only the validity of the warrants would be attacked. Horatio S. Rubeus and Conzales de Qneaada, ut lorneys of New York, ore here to defend the. culprits. These attorneys refuse to etate their probable cour«« of procedure. K-uta 1'elU IIU Story. To a reporter, Ezeta, who 'does not •peak English, told his story with the assistance of Lieutenant Coffin, of tbe Bennington, as interpreter. Ezota Bays that between the 2«th of April and May 8rd, three battles were .fought near Santa Ana, in which his forces were defeated. Ezotu was wounded in the head on May 3rd and was concealed in a hut, Two weeks later with HOO of 'his followers, he made his way to the sea coast. There ho found the Bennington and* asked for refuge until tbe steamer Ban Bias arrived, the' refuges were not allowed to board her, but wero • kept against their wills on the Beunington. Ezotu explains the charge of murder against him by saying that ho did not kill the man, but that the teamster who tried to intercept him wan shot by one of his men, an'American. Lieutenant Coffin corroborated this story. As regards the bank robbery > Exota says he took the money from tbe bank and gave his receipt for it a» president of tlio, republic •lid usaxl it to pay his soldiers.

SAN FKANCI.SCO, Aug. 24.— Tlinrsilay wns the third day of the Democrat! state convention. The afternoon session was taken up in consideration of the re port o( the committee on platform. At ter a spirited debate the platform as re ported was adopted by a unanimoui vote. The platform indorses the admin istrationof President Cleveland, declares devotion to the principles of the nations Democratic platform of 18W and con gratulates the people upon the fact tha "notwithstanding the open opposition o the Republican party and the conduc of a few pretended Democrats a substan tial measure of tariff reform has been affected." The financial plank of the platform favors the retirement of all gold coins and paper currency below the denomina tionof ftO, and the reopening of th< mints to the coinago of both gold anc silver on such basis aa will maintain their parity. > The platform denls with n number o local questions and on the subject o: freight rates, it declares that the charges for the transportation of freights in Cali fornia by the Southern Pacific company should be subjected to an average rednc tion of not less than 25 per cent and i pledges' the Democratic nominees for railroad commissioners to urge this re duction. In regard to the indebtedness of the Pacific railroads,, the platform declares thai any extension of time or the pay inent of this indebtedness by the so called Reilly extending bill, or any siiu ilar measure, would entail upon tbe people of California the principal burden of 'discharging this Jdebt and would result in conferring additional benefits upon the private owners of the road. The platform resolves that every Demo cratic nominee for congress in California shall subscribe the following pledge: "If elected to congress I will oppose any Attempt and vote against any bill tn extend the time for the payment to the government of the Pacific railroads debt and I will favor and vote for measure to foreclose at maturity tbe lien of the government on these roads and to have them bid in by the government and maintained as national highways for the benefit and in the interest of the people and to enforce against the stockholder of said roads the collection of any payment for deficiency that may result upon said foreclosure, and I will favor aiid vote for all legislation neces sary to effectuate these ends." A determined attempt was made to commit the convention in favor of free coinage o. silver at a ratio of 10 to t. A majority of (lie delegates, however. were strongly against the proposition and the resolution was overwbleuiiugly defeated. _ POPULISTS BOYCOTT RAILROADS. Majority of Delegate* Go to the Nebraika Stnte Convention Overland. (litAND ISLAND, Neb., Aug. 24. — The delegates to the Populist state convention are all here. There are 10 candidates for every place on the ticket. The leading candidates for governor are Hon. John M. Ragun and Judge Holcomb. A feature of the present meeting is the fact that nine-tenths of the delegates bave come to this city overland. Tha rank and file declared a boycott against the railroads because they declared that the temptation to accept passes was too great for many to resist, and this method was introduced to prevent any member being placed under obligation to thu railroads. , [It is voi-y popular, the various delegations holding rallies along the route of march and much enthusiasm has been aroused. A full ticket is to be named and also a candidate for United States senator. All the party does not favor this last idea, but it will be carried through, Tho probabilities are that they will nominate Congressman Uryan if he will wholly renounce his connection with the Democratic party. Bryan does not desire to do this and his friends are trying to bave him named where he stands since he is almost wholly in accord with tho Populists on al| popular issues. They may concede this jwint, though there will bo t» strong fight against him unless he will get squurely in the party, A oommitttH) of Democrats are here trying to agree with tho Populist loaders on a ticket that will be satisfactory to tlio Democrats, If this is dono, they agree that the Democratic state convou- lion noil mouth will muko no nominations. _ Gamble ami I'lrklor For CougreM, YANKTUN, H, D., Aug. «•»,— The Republican Htuto convention Ims finitiliud its busings and adjourned.

The petitioners declare that many of the men's families are in absolute want. Will Allow Women to Vote. UHAND FORKS, N.
