A Export From Santiago that Sho
lias Withdrawn (lie llatta Note,
And A crew to Submit the Baltimore
Cs.e to th. Supreme Court of th.
Cniteil States for Adjudication.
The Report Not Credited.
Santiago, Chile., Jan. 26. The Chil
ean government has sent a reply to tho
ultimatum of the United States. The
reply is, in effect, as follows: Chile
agrees to withdraw the offensive note
sent by Senor Matta to all the Chilean
ministers abroad and acknowledges that
its issuance was dne to an error of judg
ment. Chile also withdraws its request
for the withdrawal of United Statej
Minister Egan. In addition the Chilean
government in its answer proposes that
the affair of the attack on the Baltimore
sailors in Valparaiso be submitted to the
arbitrage of some neutral nation. If
this proposition is not acceptable to the
United States government, the Chilean
government suggests that tho matter iw
submitted to the decision of the su
preme conrt of the United States.
Favorably Received at Washington.
Washington, Jan. 26. The telegram
from Santiago saying that Chile had de
cided to apologize was read with much
satisfaction by all classes of people here.
While nearly every one sustaius Presi
dent Harrison in his vigorous attitude,
no one wants to thrash Chile simply as
a means of showing the power of the
United States. The proposition of Chile
rto apologize for the insolent Matta note
and to submit the Baltimore case to tho
supreme court of the United States for
adjudication, is regarded as fair and
Lacks Confirmation.
Washington, Jan. 20. As Secretary
Bluine was entering tho White House at
noon he was asked if any response had
been made to the demand upon Chile.
His answer was: "Xol that I know of."
Inquiry at the state, war and navy de
partments elicited the reply that noth
ing had been received there from Chile.
Therefore there is no corroboration of
the dispatch from Santiago concerning
the apology. Minister Montt jdso ile
clared he had "received "no news from
Chile and declined to discuss the situa
tion. It is probable that if Secretary
Blaine,, despite his denial, has any com
munication from Egan he will lay it be
fore the cabinet before making it public.
The Cabinet Meeting.
Washington, Jan. 26. Tho cabinet
meeting lasted until i :10 p. in. At ita
close every member was asked regard
ing the Chilean situation and positively
declined to answer. It is now generally
believed that no reply has been received
from Chile to the ultimatum of Jan. 21.
No confirmation of the Santiago dis
patch can be obtained from any quarter
and it is discredited in all official
Not Aware of It.
Paris. Jan. 26. The Chilean minister
here says he is not aware that Chile ha3
made any surrender to the United Slates.
Naval Officers and Men Anxious for Ac
tion San Francisco Safe.
San Francisco, Jan. 26. There wao
geat excitement in shipping and naval
circles here. Naval officers and men all
want war, and the Baltimore's men are
simply wild to get a chance to return to
Valparaiso and secure revenge for tho
dastardly outrage on their comrades. It
warms the circles of the genuine Ameri
can's heart to see the eagerness of all
the sailors and officers of the Baltimoro
and Charleston to have a chance nt the
Chileans. They all admit the Chileans
are good fighters, but they say neither
officers nor men know how to handlo
ships or guns.
Captain Schley, in disenssing the sit
uation a few days ago, said he would not
be afraid to meet the entire Chilean
navy .out in open sea, where he could
have space for maneuvering. He said
the Baltimore was so much more easily
handled than any of the Chilean vessels
that she conld sail around them and 'in
ish them one after another. Shipping
men are eager for war also, as it means
making "Frisco an outfitting point on
this coast for war vessels and trans
ports. t apprehension has been expressed
about the safety of San Francisco, but
experts declare that with torpedos and
torpedo boats the harbor could be de
fended against any attack. Stress in
also laid on the fact that should war bo
declared all the fighting would take
place in Chilean waters, and any Chil
ean cruiser that might leave that coun
try would chase after American mer
chantmen instead of trying to lay this
city nnder tribute and tempting an en
gagement with one of the White squad
ron. Anot her reason urged why the Chilean
war vessels would not visit this port is a
lack of coal. There is no place in the
entire Pacific ocean where a Chilean
cruiser can obtain the requisite amount
of coal needed to keep at sea for any
length of time. "All neutral ports would
be closed against cruisers of both belli;
emits, and once the supply of coal on
board a war ship ran short her only
salvation would be to reach some port
in her own country where she could
replenish ber bunkers.
The navy department positively re
jused to disclose the movements of tlw
United ctates war, vessels. It is known,
liowever, that Admirals Gherardi's and
Walker's fleets are being concentrated
in the south Atlantic and are m their
way to Chile. The navy department
will not announco their whereabout)
until ' : '
They Arrive In Chilean Water.
General Schofield, the commanding gen
eral of the army, shook his Lead when
asked if there was any news concerning
the Chilean djmcuity. "I am nelpim;
the situation bv keeping my mouth
shut," he said. General Schofield would
not say whether or not any orders had
been issued for the concentration of
troops. Commodore Ramsey, the chief
of the naval bureau of navigation, was
equally reticent. He knows all about
the movements of the naval vessels, and
qau give as much information concern
ing the real condition of affairs as any
man under the government. He met
every inquiry tor news v. it a a polite re
fusal to talk.
English r'rnss Comment.
London, Jan. C7. The Daily Newi
says the coming presidential election U
coloring every incident. Even in the
existing quarrel with Chile the shrewd
American citizen attempts to make a
little political capital. We suspect that
our own, controversies with the United
States are prolonged to serve political
ends. Between equals the language of
President Harrison might barely have
passed aa lofty. Directed at a smaller
neighbor it sounds more than a trifle
pompous. There is little room for sur
prise that the message is treated in New
York as buncombe, but it is not bun
combe to tho Chileans, who should not
be deterred by false pride from offering
every reasonable satisfaction.
The Daily Graphic tays the qnarwl
between the United States and Chile has
lost interest for the serious public. It is
an unedifying snarl. The bluster be
tween Santiago and Washington has
ceased to possess even sensational fea
tures to recommend it to attention.
Chile will apologize and Egan will be
withdrawn. Mr. Harrison is far from
making a satisfactory case. He is unable
to say conscientiously that the Chileans
have no legitimate cause for complaint.
This, we are afraid, he cannot say. No
doubt the obstinacy of President Har
rison is due to the fact that electioneer
ing is at the root of the quarrel.
The Morning Advertiser says that it
looks as if the leading government was
rather disposed to place obstacles in the
way of peace, rather than exert itself
toward promoting an amicable settle
ment. The tone of the president's mes
sage is harsh and unconciliatory, and i!!
he is playing a game of bluff, ho is do
ing it in" a manner strongly calculated
to defeat the object.
England Nat Mediator. "
London, Jan. 20. Inquiries made at
the foreign offices have brought forth
the fact that nobody there seems to be
aware that England offered to act as ar
bitrator in the " troubles between Chile
and the United States. On the other
hand it is semi-officially stated that it is
doubted that there is any truth in the

' In the House.
Washington, Jan. 26. In the liouss
Breckenridge introduced a resolution
which was adopted, requesting the pres
ident to inform the house whether any
answer Lad been received from the
Chilean government in answer to the
dispatch of Jan. 21 ; also to communicate
to the bouse all correspondence relative
to the Chilean trouble not already com
municated. The houae foreign affairs
committee held a special meeting and
began discussing the Chilean situation.
It will take some time to get through
the voluminous correspondence before
the committee, and until that is done
no action is looked for.
It Will Discourage Hie Exportation ef
High Grade Ores From Mexico.
El. Paso, Tex., Jan. 26. A private
di spatch from the City of Mexico con
firms the position of Collector of Cus
toms Aspo of Juarez in assessing a mint
tax on all ores for export. The new
ruling asseses a tax and demands an assay
certificate from a mint of besides tin
expenses of stamps necessary to make
complete customs clearings papers. As
the only mint in Northern Mexico is at
Chihuahua, this law will delay ore from
districts this side of that city in Juarez
nntil samples can be sent and returned,
while ores from below will be stopped,
and assayed at Chihuahua, causing great
loss of time, expense, and inconvenience
to shippers. It is believed here that thin
law is put in force by , Mexico as a
retaliatory, measure against the United.
States for the ruling of the secretary of
the treasury in assessing a duty upon
lead ores imported from that country.
Besides it is believed bv manv that thin
law will discourage the .exportatiuns - of
ere of a high grade and be the means or
establishing big smelting and refining
works in Mexico.

Washington, Jan. 26. The statement
that Mr. Cleveland lias decided not to be
candidate for the presidency, and has
notified his intimate friends to that
effect, has gained a considerable amount
of circulation, but it must lie accepted
with a great deal of reservation. At all
events, Mr. Cleveland's chief workers
here are in earnest in his interest, and
they have evidently received no intima

Political News from Kansas.
Topkka, Kan., Jan. 26. Senator Rush
and Billie Edwards of Pawnee county
are in the city and will remain for sev
eral days looking over the political sit

candidate for secretary of state and says
he has received letters troui various
parts of the state which are very en

didates are springing up in the biir Sev

"Because Maash Murdock and A. W.
Smith both happen to be from my dis

150 miles from me and within fifty miles
of the center of the state. If there are
any candidates west of Pawnee county I
do not know who they are."

Tanqieiis, Jan. 20 Contrary to gen

ing in force of British and French blue
jackets here, and it would seem that the
ontemplated naval demonstration is
not to take place. Though matters in
Tangiers proper are quiet, outside of its
walls there are thirteen tribes longing
for a fight of some description. Their
movements, however, are considerably
hampered- and their . ardor somewhat
damrtened bv the fact that the recent
continuous rains have rendered nearly
an tne roads and rivers impassible. This
has reduced the tribesmen to a state of
stagnation, bnt it is believed they will
be on the move so soon as the weather
moderates to any appreciable extent. , It
is believed, liowever, that the removal
of the unpopular bashaw or governor,
will do much t o allay the trouble and ex
citement which has prevailed for some
time past. The bashaw has, beyond
doubt, . severely ana systematically
squeezed every coin possible out of ths
unfortunate Moors under his jurisdic
tion, and he has levied tribute on all
aides and accepted bribes, from all who
offered them. " ' "

None After Wales.
London, Jan. 26. Nothing exceeds

Thomas Brooks, the Unionist-Conservative

Liberal victory at the next general elec
tion as a foregone conclusion. The Rad
icals are, if possible, more jubilant than
the Liberals. They claim that the tide
of republicanism is surely but slowly
rising in England, and though the Prince
of Wales may come to the throue, there
will be no more kings and queens of
England after him.
