THE CHASE BEGINS Warships Sent in Pursuit of the Itata. The Charleston Sets Sail Under Sealed Orders—Capture of the Robert and Minnie. inSP. ARMS WEKE GONE. Los ANGELES, Cal., May 11.—The schooner Robert and Minnie was captured Saturday afternoon about 3 miles from San Pedro by Deputy Marshal Anderson, on board the tug Falcon. She made no resistance and was towed into San Pedro harbor and tied up to the wharf. The arms said to have been on board had disappeared. It is believed they had been transferred to the Chilian steamer Itata. SAX FEAJTCISCO, May 11.— The fact no longer is concealed, even in official naval circles, that the swift cruiser Charleston is off on hot chase after the Chilian transport Itata, which left San Diego last Wednesday while under arrest, and carrying off the deputy United States marshal. The Itata, after leaving San Diego, took on board a consignment of rifles and ammunition which had been shipped from San Francisco on the schooner Robert and Minnie. The transfer of the letter's cargo is- believed to have occurred off the San Clemente islands, northwest of San Diego harbor, and it is believed t"<> Itata steamed south Friday night 01" Saturday morning. The Chilian cruiser Esmeralda is believed to be lying off Cape San Lucas, which is the southernmost point of the land in Lower California, awaiting supplies carried by the Itata. The sea run to that point is about 700 miles. The Itata being heavily loaded, and although reputed as a fast craft, it is estimated she cannot exceed 0 to knots, and the Charleston, which left San Pedro at 4 a. m., it is thought certainly can overtake her or reach San Lucas in advance of the transport. If not found there the Charleston will proceed direct to Aeapulco, which will be the first point at which any further intelligence can be received. Even though the cruiser Esmeralda is met as convoy of the Itata, it is understood that the orders to the Charleston are explicit on point of capture, and if the Itata is sighted it is believed certain now that there will be a capture or fight, or both. WASHINGTON, May 11. — Notwithstanding the published information from the Pacific coast regarding the sailing of the Charleston in pursuit of the Chilian insurgents' vessel Itata the navy department refuse to make known the orders issued regarding the fugitive. From authoritative sources it is learned, however, th<ft the government has fully determined to recapture the Itata, and the inference is that all the United States naval vessels in the Pacific will now take a hand in the chase if necessary. The situation of these vessels happens to be very unfortunate under the circumstances. The Charleston is chasing the ship down the coast. The Omaha is cruising about San Diego to prevent the Itata from doubling on her pursuers, and the Baltimore, San Francisco, and Pensacola, now in Chilian waters under command of Commodore Brown, are ready and have been directed, it is asserted, to intercept the steamer should she prove too speedy for the Charleston. Los ANGELES, Cal., May 11.—Before the schooner Robert and Minnie was captured by the United States marshal Supercargo Burch and Pilot Dill, who took the Itata out of San Diego harbor, went ashore. Dill was arrested at San Pedro. Burch came to Los Angeles and was traced by a reporter to the Arcade depot, where he was waiting to take a train to San Francisco. Burch at first denied that he was the man wanted, but afterward acknowledged it and was arrested by Detective Harry- Morse and is now in custody of the United States marshal. Burch says he landed the arms, but declines to say at what point, but it is supposed to have been at Catilina or San Clemente island. He insists that he has violated no law and seems to be confident that he will be released. He said that he had not violated a single maritime law nor had he violated those relating to neutral powers. Burch said he was confident that the Itata could not possibly have been detained by force at the command of the United States marshal, as her crew would most certainly have resisted any attempt to board her. He also expressed surprise that Marshal Gard did not seize the schooner when he went out to her in a tug if she was to have been, seized at all. Burch has telegraphed the facts as to liis arrest .to Senator Trumbull, has engaged attorneys and will fight the case, but -appears to be expecting advices from Washington ordering his release. Pilot Dill, of San Diego, came up from San Pedro with .United States Marshal Gard. Dill says he had no alternative but to take the Itata to sea. He says the captain put three armed Chilians on either side of him and remained himself with a 're-. volver to see that he did not run . the steamer aground. He says he saw fifty or six€y aVmed men on board, but'there may. have been more. There were -two eapjions on the forward deck and. he was told that'there were six more cannon and two gatling guns on board. Dill says he is confident that the vessel would have resisted any attempt to detain her, as it was a matter of life or death. He says the Itata was a veritable man of war when he took her out of the harbor, but had the appearance of a merchant vessel when he brought her in. CENTER OF POPULATION.

OUR <3OLS SUPPLY. The Director of the Mint Says We Have More 011 Hand Than Any Other Country. •. WASHINGTON, May 11.—Director of the Mint Leech has been w atching the flow of gold from this country to Europe but he sees nothing in the tide to excite alarm. Within a few weeks past Germany has drawn on our stock for £3,596,000 in gold bars and §0,528,000 in coin. France during the same period has called for 80,250,000 in coin and England 5-6,100,000. At the ruling rate of exchange it is unnecessary to look further for causes of gold Shipments than the payment of the bal- |mce of trade, including freight and interest and the strained financial situation in Europe. According to Mr. Leech, the United States has more gold on hand at this time than any other country. Must Die by Electricity. .
