REJECTED THE HONORS ''. ' . , * " , . Nicaraguans Try to Force Americans Into Office. DETEEMINED STAND OF O'SEILL, Compelled jfrndr I* to Ignore Bli Own De- eMe— English Crutaer Mohawk Brought Killed Americans Hack to Minefields. Italian Annlreriary Celebrated — Husgla FBTOM European Intervention, NEW ORLtiAN-B, Sept. 21.— A correspondent in Blnefields, Nicaragua, under .date of Sept. 15, says: This is the Independence day of Nicaragua and it brings this land one day closer to the certain civil war ,which will play havoc with prosperity for awhile, Blueflelds has enjoyed a municipal election and 'officers have befen elected, but still martial law exists, for the simple reason that tho Nicaragttans attempted . to elect Americans' to office without even taking the trouble to consult those Americans. Madris had stated that any successful candidate who refused to serve in the office to which he had been elected would be fined |5U a day throughout the entire terta of the office, but the ' determined stand of Captain O'Neill Compelled Mad- rts to ignore his own decree. Eugene Landrick and Dr. Paul Austerhans were those who rejected the honor and called on Captain O'Neill to protect them, which he did. ..... On Sspt. 5 the English cruiser Mohawk arrived and Captain O'Neill was notified that she had on board the exiled residents and 'two Americans, Mr. Sam La'mpton of New Orleans ' < and' • Captain Wi-R^W. Banks of Philadelphia. The Mohawk carried several dispatches from Minuter Baker to Captain Summer. > In one of these letters; President Cleveland IB quoted as saying thet two Americans Should be given a fair and honest open trial at once or they would ' have' to be released and restored to their former positions. Captain O'Neill willingly tendered-' these 'men quarters on his ship. News that the other exiles were on the English cruiser had spread rapidly in Blueflelds and the greatest excitement prevailed. . Those at -the government 'headquarters were dumbfounded and scarcely knew what to expect. Several "Sailing Vessels beaded for the open sea at v-once with friends and families of the exiles on board. Stunner 1 * Policy a Wise One. An incident occurred which proves the policy adopted by Captain Sumner to be a wise one. When it ' was found impossible to .leave' Blnefields before Aug. 19, the men under General Reyes and even the general himself expected an attack' by marines from the Columbia .and Marblehead. Two 8-inch Krupp .guns were run out to suitable positions and 300 men hidden away among the plants on shore as sharpshooters, The prisoners at this time were quartered in a small building behind the custom bouse; During the forenoon of Aug. 1? .sieveral soldiers were seen to lash two 10- ^ipouud cans of, gunpowder together and fix on a fuse. ... This deadly instrument was then taken to the building whcrq the prisoners were quartered and placed in a corner of the room. An' officer was stationed by the powder .with instructions to set fire to the fuse when the fight began. When they boarded the Yuhv on the evening of Aug. 10 the powder was carried along and placed near where the prisoners were stationed. Again when they were taken to the old Spanish town of San Juan dol Norco. the powder had a prom inent position in the hotel and ovon on the river boat it was also kept in read!' ness. _ _ Furor* European Intervention.
