-sis VOL. III. LINCOLN. NEB., THURSDAY.-J AN. 28, 1812. NO. 33. A Export From Santiago that Sho lias Withdrawn (lie llatta Note, WILL LET EGAN REMAIN And A crew to Submit the Baltimore Cs.e to th.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 honorable. 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 cncles. 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. ALL WANT WAR. 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 ..me 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 statement. A Denial. London, Jan. 20. Armstrong's agent denies that the Chilean government has purchased or is treating for cruiser from that firm. ,...- Ready for Sen. Havre, Jan. 26. The Chilean cruiser President Pinte is in the Granville roads, half manned and ready for sea. CONGRESSIONAL: ' 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. RETALIATORY MEX1CAN MINT TAX. 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.

DELEGATES FOR HARRISON The President's Campalfn About to Sa tin In Pennsylvania Political Kwi Irom Kansas A Financial Plan from Lamar County, Tex 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 tion from their leader that he is to be re garded as out of the field. Delegate For Harrison. Pittsburg, Jan. 6. Collectorof Cus toms Dravo, Postmaster McKean, United States District Attorney Lyons, and Pension Agent Bengongh, and ths internal revenue employes of the inter nal revenue office (there is no col lector at present) are in hot water. They all owe their positions to Senator Quay, but it is announced on good au thority that they have received notice that they will be expected to oppose the senator's wishes and to battle for friends of President Harrison, who will be can didates for delegates to the national con vention from the districts in which these Federal officers and employes tire Bupjxwed to have influence; Tho battle will open at once, as Chairman Griim. of tho Republican countv cornmiues , ; n li ' .. . nus issued a can icr a meeting of tne Republican county committee to fix tha date of the primaries.

"We demand the dissolution of the partnership between the United States and the liquor trathc by the repeal of the internal revenue laws on liquor and tobacco, and the deficiency in the rev enue, say $125,000,000, be supplied by an annual issue of $12-5,000,000 of legal ten der notes until the volume of money reaches $50 per capita. 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 uation. Mr. Edwards is an avowed candidate for secretary of state and says he has received letters troui various parts of the state which are very en couraging; The tact that so many can didates are springing up in the biir Sev enth is a trifle discouraging to Mr. Ed wards. "Because Maash Murdock and A. W. Smith both happen to be from my dis trict should not interfere with my can didacy," said Edwards." They are both 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." Speaking of the congressional situation in the Seventh district, Senator Rush stated that the prominent candidates were James R. Rallowell, J. W. Jones of Hutchinson, Thomas Hubbard, who made the fight against Hallowell at Dodge City, Captain Henry Booth of Pawnee and Senator Kelley of McPher- BEET SUGAR PRODUCERS.

Tomer of Washington, who for two years past, under the Itvpices of the California Division of fining Geology, has been exploring the gold regions of the Sierras, arrived here. Turner ob tained from a gulch at Cave City, Cal averas conntv, a meteoric stone that will create no little interest In the scientific world. It is about as l.irire as one's, fist, and around a good port ioji of it is a solid liiui of gum. In one place the goid shows for about an inctii square of sur face. Hitherto in all discoveries of th world no meteoric iron has been found in connection with gold. It demonstrates. Turner says, there isgol$in the worlds of space from which the meteor iron ha fallen. The specimen will lie boxed and shipped to the Smithsonian institution. Other pieces will probably be forwarded from Calaveras. ; Dr. Miqnei Resigns. Berlin, Jan.26. The Cologne Gazetti says that Dr. Miquel. minister of financo has tendered his resignation. He i? opposed to the education bill before the lower house of the Prussian diet, and as the government is supporting tho measure, Dr. Miquel feels 'failed upon to resign. Tho kaiser is opposed to ac cepting the resignation, as he values Dr. Miquel's services as finance minister very highly and has deferred its con sideration forthepresent SITUATION AT TANQIERS. Thirteen Tribes Outsldo the City Simply Spoiling for Trouble News From . Abroad. Tanqieiis, Jan. 20 Contrary to gen eral expectation, there has been no land 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.

In an interview Canon Johnson, who was private secre tary to the late Cardinal Manning.stated that a council of the canons of the dio cese would be held next week for the purpose of agreeing upon three names to be submitted to the bishops as accepta ble successor to the deceased predate. The names will be in turn submitted by the bishops to the Vatican and from them the new cardinal will be selected. Canon Johnson would venture no opinion as to the probable choice of the canons. None After Wales. London, Jan. 26. Nothing exceeds the joy of the Liberals at the brilliant victory at the polls won by J. H. Mad den, the Gladstone Liberal, over Sir Thomas Brooks, the Unionist-Conservative champion. They now look upon a 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. Charges Agaiuit a Chicago Hank. Chicago, Jan. 26.
