A private dispatch was received in this city Wednesday evening [Sept. 26, 1888], reading as follows:
"The Wisconsin company, in charge of Elder Phillips, sailed for Norfolk, and via Union Pacific to-day. Twenty of the company are detained as ineligible to land."
In answer to an inquiry from here in regard to the cause of detention, Mr. P. W. Gibson, Guion & Co's agent, sent the following, which was received on the 27th [Sept. 27, 1888]:
"The detention is arbitrary. The commissioners claim the party is likely to become a public charge. They refuse bonds. I have sent the facts to Mr. Caine, at Washington."
