England Interested in the repara tions Being: Made for War. A " TEST CASE SETTLED. Ceanaelman Scares Point Against the Iatentat Commerce CommtMtoa. Witnesses Mot Required t. An swer Incriminating Qa.tllons Washington, Jan. 13. Whether Great Britain is or is not using her influence with Chile to bring about a satisfactory settlement of the Baltimore outrage is as yet a matter of speculation, but there are abundant evidences that she is show ing the deepest interest in the prepara tion for war which our country has been making. Our naval officers have not failed to discover that two naval attaches of the British legation in this city. Captains William H. Way and Q. C. Langley, have been watching every movement of the navy department since the talk of war with Chile first com menced. What these officers have learned has, of course, been duly com municated to the home government, and these reports have doubtless been the means of convincing the British author ities that the United States is in sober earnest in her demand for reparation. . It is noticeable to those who have watched the developments of the Chilean controversy that the English influences in the direction of peace commenced just after the naval attaches began ac tivity. These attaches have made per sonal visits to different places through out the country where work on war ma terials is in progress. Only a few days ago Captain Langley visited the Mare island navy yards and Union Iron works at San Francisco to see what trnth there was in the rumors of hurried work on the coast defense vessel Monterey and other vessels. Upon his return a day or two ago he' told a friend -that he had been on a few days' pleasure trip to New York, but this did not deceive tho naval officers here. ' . Test Cant Settled.

Charles Conn selman of Chicago downed the interstate commerce commission in the United States supreme court, and to all intents and purposes has smashed the power of the commission for all time to come, un less Senator Cnllom or some other states man conies to the rescue with an amend ment to the law. The case decided was I that of Charles Connselman of Chicago I vs. Frank Hitchcock, marshal of the United States for the Northern district of Illinois, and the decision of the court was, in brief, that the interstate com merce commission had no right to com; ?el a witness to testify against himself,, Tie decision reverses the decision of the United States circuit court for the Northern district of Illinois, which holds that Mr. Connselman, in re- and were by reason of this advantage acquiring a monopoly of the business. It was impossible to prove the charges without the books of the accused parties, and an order of the court was issued to secure them. This Mr. Connselman re fused to honor and the others took a similar stand. It was agreed to make Mr. Counselman's action a test case and the matter was taken by his attorney to the United States supreme court with this understanding. Fireman Shield.! Cane. Washington, Jan. 12. The depart ment of justice is in receipt of a full re- port of an investigation made by the United States district attorney of San Francisco into the case of Patrick Shields, a fireman on the Americau steamship Kewenaw, who is alleged to have received brutal treatment by the police authorities of Valparaiso for no other reason than because he proclaimed himself an American. Shields states I that he shipped on board the steamer at 1 Brooklyn, N.Y., and reached Valparaiso on t he 8th of September. He was given liberty and went ashore. After leaving a barber shop and while perfectly sober he was accosted by two policemen for money, and not complying with their de mands, tho officers, who were in uniform, i took him to jail, where they locked him I up. From this time forward, according to his statement, be was subject to a j continuous series of arrests and impris- ; onment, accompanied by brntal beat- i ings and periods of service on the chain gang for no other reason than because he was an Amertcan. Captain W. H. Jenkins, of the Kewenaw, a resident of Boston, testified that the vessel is owned by Americans and carried tho American flag. He described the piria- ble condition of Shields when the latter returned to the ship after his imprison ment. The unanimous testimony of of ficers and crew of the vessel was that it was unsafe for any American seaman to proclaim himselt at V alparaiso. New from Chile, Washington, Jan. 12.

While Whit man is not an atheist and really believes he is going to die he has not asked to see a minister, and it is not known that he belongs to any church or religions de nomination.

The mayor asked him if he would treat with a committee of the strikers. Mr. Frensel positively refused to do so, stating that he could get plenty of men to man his cars, as there were many applicants from men in this city out of employ ment. Including twenty-hve of the stnk ers, whom, he said, would return when they were given police protection. He denied the rumor that men would be imported, to take the strikers' places. He addressed a letter to the police com missioner asking that proper police pro tection be given him as he intended run ning cars for the accommodation of tho public to.! ay. The men are determined, and if he carries out his expressed intention it U feared that serious trouble will result. ARRESTED THE CASHIER. Another Bank Failure la Pennaylvanla Announced.

Taylor, charged with the murder of Harry Bowmaster at Homestead on the night of Dec. 8, returned a verdict find ing the defendant guilty of voluntary manslaughter. Bowmaster came to Taylor's house and began rapping or try ing to open one of the down-stairs win dows, when Taylor was aroused by his wife, and taking his rifle, went out into the yard, and, according to his own strtement, took a position behind a rain barrel and asked tne man what he was doing. The man was working at the window at the time, and Taylor says reached toward his side and did not an swer him. Taylor at once fired and killed him. Several shots were fired at Taylor afterward by Bowmaster's two companions. The attorneys for the de fendant held, according to the old Eng lish law, that a man's boose was his castle and that he had a right, according to that law, to shoot any person that tried to effect an entrance into his house during the night time. This idea has been exploded apparently by the present verdict. DR. GRAVES SENTENCED. T Die on the Oallowi Within Two Weeks from Jan. 30. Denver, Jan. 12.

CHILE IS CONCILIATORY. Hlnl.ter Eg-an'i L.te.t Action Ii Not to Be Scrlnu.ly Queatloned Sir Charles DUke'. War 8peecta starvation llre.dt Anarchy Other New. Dubux. Jan. 13. The meeting of the Dublin corporation, at which the ques tion of adopting an address to the queen, the Prince of Wales and the duke of Clarence on the occasion of the duke's approaching wedding, was de bated and was remarkable for the mod erate tone which characterized the discussion. Mr. Dobson. in moving tho address, said that he was encouraged to do so by the cordial manner In which the toast to the queen's health was re sponded to at the recent mayoralty banquet. Mr. Brown, in seconding ths motion, nrged that political feeling be discarded and that the members consider only their loyalty to the queen as subjects of her world wide empire. Es-High Sheriff Shanks proposed an amendment, which was seconded by Alderman Perry, that "while the occasion of the duke's mar riage elicits our hearty good wishes, the council does not feel justified, while ex ceptional laws are appli-sd to Ireland, in presenting an address." The supporters of the amendment repudiated any idea of disloyulty, and expressed the hope that when the unjust and exceptional coercive laws now applied to Ireland shonld be repealed, and the desire for a national parliament acceeded to an ad dress of congratulation on such an oc casion might be presented from all rep resentative bodies in Ireland. The amendment prevailed. Dilke'i War Speech. Lovdov, Jan. 12. Sir Charles Dilke delivered a speech which is likely to at tract attention and arouse discussion throughout Europe. He declared that the Liberals were not wise in trusting the government's foreign policy. There were times when the traditional non interference by the Opposition with the foreign policy of the party in power might properly be abandoned. lie be lieved that neither Germany or France wished for an alliance with England, since both cherished designs on Belgium, whose neutrality England has guaran teed. Lord Salisbury was allowing that matter to drift, whereas England ought to be very jealous of any encroachments in that direction and should make up her mind whether or not to fight in order to preserve the autonomy of Bel gium. It it were determined that the guarantee was worth supporting by force of arms, then preparations for the inevitable should begin without delay. : : Editor.

The Schleseicfa Zei tnng unusually a well informed paper, states that the recent reception of gen erals bj the kaiser was not altogether ae ceremonial as had been reported. The kaiser addressed a few significant words to the leaders of his army, telling them that there was a tendency to be too san guine of the prolongation of peace, moi that he desired them not to be affected by such a tendency. The paper is sup posed to have got its information from an officer who was present. The kaiser has been very much irritated by the publicity given recently to some of his utterances to the army, and it has been quietly intimated to the officers that such utterances are in confidence. This accounts for the fact that the kaiser's significant remarks escaped attention until now. . tilde I. Contented. ' Valparaiso, Jan. 12.
