Washington, Sept. 14—A report
has been received by mail at the war
department giving an account of the
capture and destruction of the steamer
Satnrnns, which carried $40,000 cash
and a valuable cargo. The report says:
“The United States gnnboat Pampan-
ga arrived here yesterday morning
bringing news of the capture of the
steamer Satnrnns, belonging to the
“The facts as gathered from those
who know, are as follows:
“The Satnrnns sailed from Manila on
the morning of July 30 for San Fernan-
do de la Union, on the north side of the
gulf of Lingayan, Cayvian, Cnrrimao
and Aparri, all of which are northern
ports. It is supposed the vessel arrived
off San Fernando the 31st ultimo.
“When discovered by the gunboat Pam"
panga she was lying with her nose buri-
ed in the sand off the shore south of the
city of San Fernando Both anchors
were out and smoke, which hovered
closely over the vessel, showed her to
be on fire. Small boats with native
crews could be seen carrying the cargo
of the burning vessel ashore.
“Little suspecting the trne condition
of affairs, the gnnboat Pampanga sent
a boat ont to the bnrning boat to inves-
tigate, but npon the approach of the
boat with her American bine jackets,
the natives immediately retired and
opened fire npon the boat’s crew, nsing
Manser and Remington rifles from con
cealed trenches and sending shells from
two three inch gnns which formed a
concealed battery over and close to the
“The watchful officers of the Pam-
panga immediatly ordered the fire from
the rebel trenches returned by the crew
of the gnnboat, and under cover of the
gnns of the warship, the boat reached
the Satnrnns. A brief inspection of the
vessel showed every indication she had
been looted by the rebels, but an exam-
ination failed to disclose any sign of a
crew or anything to indicate a struggle
had taken place on board. The boat’s
crew then attempted to raise the an-
chors. but failing in ibis cnt the anchor
chains and attached a hawser from the
Pampanga to the propellor of the Satnr
nns. An attempt was then made to
pnll her ont of the mud and sand, bnt
“The Pampanga then abandoned the
wrecked Satnrnns and signalled the
Conoord, which was sighted as she was
crossing the gnlf of Lingayen, and re
rorted all the facts of the discovery to
the commander. The Pampanga there-
upon was ordered to Manila to report
the sffair, while the Concord remained
to attend the rebels and wreck When
the gnnboat left the scene the flames on
the Satnrnns had enveloped the vessel
and she. to all appearances, was doom-
"The Satnrnns was commanded by
Captain Antonio Aralncea and had two
offioers, three engineers and a crew of
thirty six natives. It is supposed all
were taken prisoners by the rebels.
“In addition to the cargo the vessel
carried twenty - six passengers and two
children, all of whom were either Fili-
pinos or Chinamen.
“There is absolutely no truth in the
rnmor of the assassination of the crew
of the vessel.
“The steamer Union, which sailed a
few days after the Satnrnns for the
same port, retnrned yesterday with the
information the United States gnnboat
Paragna refnsed permission to her to
enter the port of San Fernaudo and
ordered her to return to Manila.
"It isjgenerally believed a portion of
the crew and perhaps some passengers
were in leagne with the rebels, and,
knowing the insurgents had a conceal-
ed battery plai ted there, ran the vessel
ashore under the rebel gnns so as to
make the looting free and easy and cap-
ture the vessel and valuable cargo, to-
gether with the officers, more complete,
and with little danger to themselves ”
A subsequent report received here
states the crew and passengers of
the Satnrnns are all safe and uninjured
at Tarlac, the Filipino oapital.
The Satnrnns was fully insured
against loss, including the risk of war.
Washington, Sept. 14 — Major
James has been relieved as chief quar-
termaster at Manila, bis place being
taken by Major Crosby P. Miller.
FINAL REPORT TOW A ¥,
Maintenance of the Convention of
Will be Strongly Averted.
Pretoria, Sept. 14—Discussion of
the first draft of the reply to the British
note ended this evening, President Kru-
ger having left at 4 o'clock and not
having retnrned. It is understood the
government will draw np a reply in |
final form tomorrow morning and Im-
mediately submit the case to the volks-
raad. The reply will be in terms
strongly influenced by Orange Free
Slate, and among other fe-ttnres, the
maintenance of the convention of 1884
will be strongly asserted The sitnation
this evening is not considered so favor-
able as it was daring the forenoon.
Volksraad Being Urged to Concede Great
London, Sept. 14 —While the staff of
the foreign office will maintain a con-
tinuous commnnioation tonight with
Chamberlain at Birmingham, it is not
believed now the result of the debate
in the volksraad will be reoeived before
Dispatches from Cape Town dated
midnight, attach great importance to
an article in the Ousland organ of the
Afrikander bnnd which nrges the
Transvaal government to renew its offer
regarding the conference, declaring
there is no reason why the Trans-
vaal shonld not accept
the conference and calling
attention to the fact that the word
“suzerainty” is not mentioned by Cham
berlain. and therefore there is nothing
to indicate an obligation on the part of
either government to abandon its views
on the subject.
This article is understood to be the
ontoome of an important Afrikander
oanens held to discuss the Chamberlain
note, and it is understood the argument
has been fortified by strong messages to
Pretoria urging the volksraad to forego
the suzerainty objection and concede
the British proposals. There is every
reason to believe Hofmeyer, Afrikander
leader, has wired President Kruger to
the same effect and similar representa-
tions have been telegraphed from
Orange Free State.

a repetition of the crime.

No Complnintft Received,
Manila, Sept. 14—No complaints
were received of the overcrowding of
the Tartar before sailing; troops and
others on the Tartar aresnpplied with
the same kind of food as the r.roops yon
menttou. Discharged soldiers, of whom
the Tartar carries four hundred and
seven, are apt to be faultfinding.
The incident is now regarded as
closed. It is learned state department
