MAKING GOOD TIME The Charleston Said to Be Close on the Itata's Heels. Secretary Tracy Talks of the Mission of Our Warship—He Does Not Look fop Resistance. GAKOXG ON THE ITATA. Cixr OF MEXICO, via Galveston, May 13,—The Chilian steamer is sailing •under diffi.cultj«.nd tlie United States warship is gaining on it. 'It is expected the two vessels will reach Acapuleo within a few hours of each other. SAX FKANCISCC,' Hay 13.—With regard to the probahle action of the Mexican authorities, A. K. Coney, consul g-eneral for Mexico here, says that if the Itata enters Acapuleo, it being a neutral port, the Mexican government will not in all probability permit the United States steamer Charleston to take her into custody,' but.if she had contraband goods on board the Mexican authorities would train the guns ol the fort on the vessel and seize her themselves. The fort was not a very strong- one, but the consul thought it was strong- enough to compel the Itata to surrender. SA.S FBANCJSCO, May 13.—It ib now stated that the. schooner Robert and Minnie is not the only vessel that was chartered to convey arms and ammunition to the Chilian insurgents, but that other vessels chartered are now unwilling to ship contraband goods or have put into Oakland creek, on the other side of San Francisco bay, until it is demonstrated whether such cargoes may safely be taken out. The United States district attorney has definitely ascertained the -roads over which a large quantity of the guns and ammunition which formed the cargo of the Robert and Minnie came into the state, and it is claimed the federal authorities will endeavor to compel the railway officials to disclose the quantity delivered and those now known to be on the road. It is further stated that a few days before cartridges were bought in the east a Chilian agent called at the office of the local agent of the United States Cartridge Company and made inqruiries' as to his ability to procure 3,000,000 cartridges of 43-caliber inside of three weeks. The district attorney has had a consultation with the Chilian consul, and steps will be taken to seize the guns and ammunition understood to be on the way from the east. -, BiyaHAJtTos, N. Y., May 13.—Secretary Tracy is in this city on private business. In an interview he stated several important facts concerning the Itata incident which have heretofore been matters of speculation. .Being questioned as to the dispatches which, rated the United States cruiser Charleston as inferior to the Chilian insurgent warship Esmeralda, he scouted the idea. True the Esmeralda carried two nine-inch guns, while the Charleston's heaviest guns are only eight-inch; but the latter had a larger number of six-inch guns, while its armament is four inches thick and the Es- merald'a only one and one-half inches. The (Jharleston was accordingly fully able to cope with the Esmeralda, as were two other United States cruisers now in the Pacific. The secretary said the Charleston has orders to capture,the Itata wherever it may be found on the high seas. This includes all waters outside the three-mile limit or ports of foreign countries. He did not anticipate a fight, but in case of resistance its United States cruiser would carry out its. orders at all hazards. He was not at liberty to state'the exact text of the cipher dispatch sent to the Charleston, neither would he say definifely if the crniser San Francisco, now in Chilian waters, had been ordered to intercept the Itata. The San Francisco, he said, classed with the cruisers Baltimore and Philadelphia, and .was fully able to hold its own with the Esmeralda: The United States had, maintained a strictly neutral position in refusing to supply arms to the insurgents,' and as the Itata had violated every rule of international law in breaking away from the custody of ouV g-overnment after seizure, it would have to'take the consequences. The secretary did not . anticipate serious trouble, but thought the matter would soon be settled peaceably and with •honor to the Uniti»i States. ; Mr. Blalne Most Rest. NEW YORK, May 13.—The Eecorder says it has been learned that the doctor has positively forbidden Mr. Blaine to return to his duties.
