President Harrison, io liia message to
congress upon the Chilean aituation,
quotes references made to the matter in
bis tot annual message to congress, in
which he (Utet that tbit Government it
waiting the result of the investigation
of ths assault. He ad is:
"In my opinion the time haa now coma
when I alioulJ lay before congress and
the country the correspondence between
tbie government and tha government of
Chile from the time of the breaking oat
of tbe resolution against B ilmsceda, to
gether with all tbe other facta in tba
possession of the executive department
relating to tbie matter. Tba diplomatio
correspondence it herewith transmitted.

tween the naval oOlcera for time in
command in Chilean water, and tha
secretary of the navy, and alao the evi
dence taken at the Mare Wand navy yard

It may be just as well at tba outset to
aay tbat, whatever may bava been eaid in
thia country or in Chile in criticism of
Mr. Egan, our nilniiter at Santiago, the
true biiiory of tbia exciting period in
Chilean affaire from the outbreak of tha
revolution until thia time dieclotea not
an acton tbe part of Mr. Egan unworthy
of hit position, or that could justly be
tba occasion for serious animadversion
or criticism, lie has, I think, on tba
whole, borne himself, in every trying
circumstance, with dignity .discretion and
courage, and baa conducted tbe corre
spondence with ability, courtesy and fair
ness, It is worth .while alo at the begin
sing to aay that the right of Mr, Egan to
give shelter in the legation to certain ad
iierents of tha Dalmaceda government
who applied to blm for asylum has not
been denied by tha Chilean authorities,
nor has ant demand been made for tba
surrender of these refugees.
All the refugees," tha president de
clares, "are now safe outside Chile. This
incHeut ha continues, might be consid
ered wholly closed but for tha disrespect
manifested toward this government by
tbe close and offensive police surveillance
of the legation premises, whicti has been
maintained during most of the period of
the stay of the refugees thernin.

But tha moat serious inoident disclosed
by the correspondence is that of tha at
tack on tha sailors on the Baltimore in
the streets of Valparaiso on tha 16th of
October last We bava now received
from tKa Chilean government an ab
stract of tha conclusion of the fiscal
general upon tha testimony taken by tha
judge of Crimea In tba Investigation
whtoh was mads to extend over nearly
three months, I very muoh regret to
be compelled to say that this report does
tot enable ma to modify tha conclusions
nounced in my annual message. I am
Mill of tha opiuion tbat our aailora were
assaulted, beaten, stabbed and killed, not
for anything they or any one of them
had done, but for what tba government
of tha United States bad dona, or waa
charged with having dona, by ita oivil
offioers and naval commanders, If that
be tha true aspect of tha case, tha injury
waa to tba government of the United
States, not to these poor sailors who war
assaulted in a manner so brutal and so
LEGAL ASPECTS OF THE CASE.
Before attempting to give an outline of
tha facta upon which the conclusion
rests, I think it right to say a word or
two upon the legal aspects of the caw.
The Baltimore was in the harbor of Val
paraiso by virtue of the general invita
tion which nations are held to extend to
war veasels of other powers when they
have frienely relations. This invitation
I think, must be held ordinarily to em
brace the privilege of such communica
tion with the shore b is reasonable, nec
essary ami proper for the convenience of
tha officers aud men of such vessels.
CapUiu fchlcy testifies that when bis
" vesnel returned to VtMrmrigo on Septem
ber 14, tlta eity officer, as is customary,
extended the hospitalities of the city to
bis officers and crow.
CLEARLY DEMANDED RZCOGNITIOS.
It is not claimed that every personal
collision or injury in which a aailoror
officer of such a naval vessel visiting
adore may be lniled raises an inter
oatioii.il question, but I aui clearlr of

ment whose uuifornii thene uiior and
officers wear, and the resentment of acts

their nation must take notice of the event
aa one involving an infraction of its
t ights and dignity; not in secondary
way, as where a citizen is injured and
presents his claim through his own gov
ernment, out in a primary war, pre
cisely aa a minister or c asul or the flag

The officer and sailors of tha Balti

approval of tbeir commanding otlicer,
anditdoea not distinguish their cse
from that of a consul that hi atay is
more permanent or that be holds an
express invitation from tha local gov
ernment to justify his longer residence.
Nor does it affect tha question whether
the injury waa tha act of a mob. If
there bad been no participation by tba
police or military in this cruel work,
and no neglect on tbeir part to extend
protection, tbe case would Mill be one, in

aaya the preteuee that our men were
fighting "with atones, cluus and briht

our prisoners when searched were aiio
lutely without uaans, only seven pekuives

our men more than thirty slab wound,
every one of which was inflicted in the

GRAPHIC STOKY OF THE MOB.
As to the brutal nature of the treat
ment received by our man, the follow
ing extract from an account given by
the newspaper La I'atria, of Valparaiso,
cannot be regarded aa too friendly: "The
Yankees, as soon as their pursuers
gave chase, went by way of Culle del
Arsenal toward the city car station The
North Americans took seats in a street
car to escape from the stones which the
Chileans threw at them. It was
believed for nn instant that tbe
North Americans had saved themselves
from the popular fury, but suoh was not
tha case. Scarcely had the car begun to
move when the crowd gathered around
and stopped its progress. Uuder thess
circumstances, and without any capta
tion of howling and throwing of stones
at the North Americans, the conductor
entered the car and seeing the risk of the
situation to the vehicle ordered them to
get out The sailors left the car in the
midst of a hail of stoies. One of the
Yankee aailora mnnaged to escape in the
direction of the plaza, but the other waa
felled to the ground by a atone. Manag
ing to raise himself from the ground he
staggered In tlm opposite direction, but

lays the president, "is able to cloud or
clear vision of this brutal work. It
should be noticed in this connection thtt
the American sailors arrested, after ex
amination, were, during the four days
following: their arrest, every one i in

peace or other criminal conduct having
Men sustained against a single one of
them, Judge of Crimes Foster, in a note
to the intendente undur date of October
S3, before the dispatch from this govern
ment of the full wing dav which aroused
the authorities of Chile to n better sense
of tha gravity of the affair, says; 'Hav
ing presided temporarily over this court
in regard to the seamen of the United
States cruiser Baltimore, who have teen
trisd on account of deplorable conduct
which took place,' etc. The notiueatde
point here is that our sailors bad been
tried before the 22d of October and that
the trial resulted in tbeir acquittal and
return to their vessel.
It is quite remarkable and quite charac
teristic of the man agemeut of thia af
fair br tba Chilean police authorities
that wa should now be advised that
Seamen Davidson, of tha Baltimore, has
been Included in the indictments, his
offense being, as far as I have been able
to ascertain, that he attempted to defend
a shipmate against an assailant who was
striking him with a knife. A perfect
vindication of our men is furnished by
this report. One only is found to have
beeu guilty of a criminal fault, aud that
for an aot clearly justified.
it naa oeen stated that all but two or
our men have said that tha police did
their duty. The avldonca at Mare Island
shows tbat It suoh a statement was pro
cured from our men it was accomplished
oy requiring tiiem to sign a writing in a
language they did not understand, and
by the representation tbat it waa a mere
declaration that t:iey bad taken no part
lu tbe disturbance.
ANIMUS OF THE ASSAULT.
The president reviews tha evidences of
animosity toward our sailors, the intuits
offered, etc., and refers to the report of
Captain Schley to the navy department,
in winuh that coiuuiander, says: "in
tha only interview I had with Judge
Foster, who is investigating the case, lie
informed me that the awault upon my
men was the outcome of hatred for our
peoplo among the lower clumes, because
they thought we hsd sympathized with
the Balinaceda government aud on ac
count of the Itata matter, whother with
or without reason he could not, of oourse,
aurait, but audi he thought was the ex
planation of the assault at that time."
'Several of our men sought security
from the mob by such complete or par
tial changes in their drew as would con
ceal the fact of their being seamen of the
Baltimore, aud found it then possible to
walk the streets without molestation.
These incidents conclusively establish
that the attack was upon the uniform,
tbe nationality, and not the men.
PERFECT NEUTRALITY MAINTAINED.
The origin of this feeling ia probably
found in the refusal of tills government
not to give recognition to the congres
sional party before it had established
itself; in the seizure of tha Itata for al
leged violation of the neutrality laws; in
the cable incident, and in the charge
that Admiral Brown oonveyed informa
tion to Valparaiso of the landing at
Quinleros. It is uot my purpose here to
enter any defense of the action of this
government in these matters. It is
enough for the present purpose to say
tnat if there was auy breach of interna
tional comity or duty on
our part, it should have beeu
made the aubject of a formal
complaint through diplomatio channels,
or of reprisals for which full responsi
bility was asiutnd. We cannot con
fetti that these incidents and these per
versions of truth shall bo used to excite
a murderous attack upon our unoffend
ing sailors and the government of Chile
go acquitted oi the responsibility. In
fact the conduct of this government dur
ing the war in Chile pursued those lines
of international comity which we had
so strongly insisted upon on the part of
other nations when this country was in
the throes of a civil confiicL We con
tinued diplomatio relations with the
government in power until it was over
thrown, and promptly and cordially
recognized tha new government when
it was established. Tha good
offices of the government were offered
to bring about a peaceful ndjtiituient,
and the interposition of Mr. Egan to
mitigato the severity and shelter adher
ents of the congressional party were ef
fective anu frequent. Tha charge against
Admiral Browu is too base to gain cred
enec. with any one who knows his high
personal and professional character.
TUI3 TO CALL A HALT
Officers and men of tbe American mer
chant ship Keweenaw, Captain Jenkins
furnish most conclusive testimony as tc
the indignjttes practiced toward Ameri
cana in' Valparaiso. When American
aailora, of merrbtnt ships, can only
secure their safety by denting their na
tionality, it mild be time to readjust our
relations with acoirornuient that permits
As to ti.e participation of tha police,
the evidence of our niiors shows thai
our men were struck and beaten by
police officer before and af'er their ar
rest, and one at irat was dragged with a
laso atwKit his neck by mounted police
men. Tbat the death of lUggin waa ths
reault of a ritl? shot fired by a policeman
or e l'lier, on duty, is sltown directly by
the testimony. The Chilean authorities
do not pretend to fix the responsibility
for this allot on any particular person,
hut avow their inability to ascertain who
fired it. further than tbat it was fired
from tha crowd.
HOT A SINGLE BF.OUET.
The communications of the Chilean
government in relation to this cruel and
disastrous attack upon our men, as wit
appear front the correspondence, bavt
not, in any degree, taken the form of
manly and aatiofactorr xpreasuios of
regret, much less apology. The event
ws of so aerious a character that if ths
injuries suffered by our men had been
w nolly the result of an accident in the
Chilean port, the incident was grave
enough to have called for aomn
publiu , expression of sympathy and
regret fro.n the local author!
ties. It is not enough to aay that th
afftir waa lamentable, for humanity
would require that expression, even if
the beating and killing of our .men had
been justifiable. It ia uot enough to aiy
tha incident waa regretted, coupled with
the statement that the affair waa not of
an unusual character in porta when
foreign aailors are accustomed to meet.
It ia not for a generous and sincere gov-
trnment to seek for words of small oi
equivocal in meaning in which to con
vey to a friendly power an apology for an
offense so atrocious as this."
Reference is made to the assault by the
mob in New Orleans upon the Spanish
consulate in 1851, and the notion of tin
government of the United States in
promptly apologising lor tt, and it is
', ne present treatment ol

"In our note of Ootober 23 last, aftet

any facta in its poseseion that might
tend to modify the unfavorable impres

causal to be communicated to tha gov
ernment of Chile, by the American min
ister at Santiago, the conclusions of this
government after full consideration of
all evidence and every suggestion affect
ing this matter, and to these conclusions
TUB PRESIDENT'S CONCLUSIONS.
First That tha assault was not re-
llevud of Hie aspect which the early lu
rormatidh of tbe event gave it, viz: That
tha attack upon the uniform of the
United Statea navy bad its origin and
motive in a feeling of hostility to this
government, and not in any action of
tbe sailors or any of them.
Second that the publio authorities or
Valparaiso flagrantly failed in their duty
to protect our men, aud that some of the
police and Chilean soldiers and aailors
were themselves guiltv of unprovoked
assaults upon our sailors before and after
the arrest, tie (the president) thinks the
preponderance of evidence and inherent
probabilities la id to tha conclusion that
Kiggin was killed by police or soldiers.
third 1 hat ha (president) was there
fore compelled to bring the case back to
tbe position taken in the note of Wharton
October 23 last and aska for a suitable
apology and some adequate reparation
for the injury done to this government.
in the ame note the attention of the
Chilean government !waa called to tha
offensive character of a note addressed
by Matta, ex-minister of foreign affairs,
to Montt, tha minister at thia capital, on
the 11th ulu This dispatch was not offi
cially communicated to this government,
but as Montt was directed to translate it
and giva it to the press of this
country, it seemed to me it could
not pass without official notice.
It waa not only undiplomatio. but
grossly insulting to our naval offioers
and to the executive, department, aa it
directly imputed untruth and insincerity
to tbe reports of the naval olncers and to
tbe official communications made by tha
executive department to congresa. It
win be observed that 1 have notified tha
Chilean governmeut that unless this note
ia at once withdrawn and an apology as
publio aa tba offense ia made, I will
terminate diplomatic relations.

was unaccompanied by any suggestion
tbat could properly be used in support of
it, and I infer the request waa based
upon the official acts of Egan which had
received the approval of this government.
But, however tnat may be, I could not
consent to consider auch a question until
it had first been aettled whether our cor
respondence with ChielJ could ba con
ducted upon a basis of mutual respect.
SHOULD BE ENFORCED. '
In submitting these papers to congress
for that grave and patriotic consideration
which tno questions involved demand, I
desire to say I am of th opinion that
tha demands made of Chile by thia gov
ernment should be adhered to and en
forced. If tbe dignity, aa'weil aa tha
prestige and influenoe of tha United
Statea ia not to ba wholly sacrificed,
wa must protect those who,
in foreign ports, display the
flag and wear the colors of
this government against insult, brutality
and death inflicted in resentment of the
acts of their government and not for any
fault of their own. It has been my de
sire in every way to cultivate friendly
aud intimate relations with all the gov
ern menu of thia hemisphere. We do
not covet their territory. Wa desire their
peace and prosperity. Wa look for no
advantage in our relations with them
except increased exchanges of commerce
upon a basis of mutual benefit.
We regret every oivil contest that dis
turbs their peace and paralyzes their
development, aud are always ready to
giva our good offices for the restoration
of peace. It must however be under
stood that thia government, while exer
cising tha utmost forbearance toward
weaker powers, will extend its strong
and adequate protection to ita citizens,
to its officers And to its humblest tailors,
when made tba victims of wantonness
and cruelty in resentment, not of theii
personal misconduct, but of the official
acta of their government.
PROTECTION TO LOYALTY.
Upon information received from Pat
rick Shields, an Irishman, and probably
a British subject, but' at tba time ths
fireman of tbe American steamer Ke
weenaw, in tha harbor of Valparaiso for
repairs, had been subjected to persona
injuries in tbat oity, largely by the po
lice, I directed tha attorney-general to
causa tha evidence of tbe offioers and
craw of that .vessel to be taken upop
lu arrival in San Franciaco, aud
this testimony ia also herewith
transmitted. The brutality and
avva tba savagery of tha treatment of
thia poor man by tha Chilean polio
would be incredible if the evidence of
Shields waa not supported by other direct
testimony and bv the dut resting condi
tion of the man himself when he was
finally able to reacti bis vessel. Ths
claim for reparation haa been made oa
behalf of this man, for while he is not a
citizen of the United States, the dootrln
so long held by us. as expressed in the

A SOCIETY TRAGEDY.
A Wealthy Yonog Woman From Blem
phis Cuts Hie Throat of a Lady
friend In a Crowded Street.
Mempiim. Tenn.. Jan. 26. The mos
sensational tragedy which has occurred
in Memphis for years was committed
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon. The
victim was a young lady, and ber slayer
was of tbe same sex. Both were famil
iar figures in society, and the awful affair
is the talk of the town. A few minutes
before 4 o'clock a buggy containing
Miss AJice Mitchell and Lizzie Johnston
drove tip to the broad sidewalk around
custom house block leading to the levee.
Tbe lines were in the hands of Miss
Johnston, and beside her, calm and self
possessed, eat Miss Mitchell. Coming
slowly up the steep incline from the
river were Miss Freda Ward of Gold
dust, Ark., and her sister Jo, w ho had
just put another sister, Mrs. Cnnimings,
aboard the stoamer Rosa Lee, for Gold
dust, Ark. The young ladies were soon
opposite the carriage, chatting pleas
antly and paying no attention to the
Suddeniy from out the carriage, at a
bound, came Miss Mitchell. Grasping
Miss Freda Ward by the neck, she drew
a bright razor fremi out the folds of her
dress and without a word drew it across
the throat of her victim. Miss Ward
sank to the pavement in an instant, tha
blood pouring in torrents from the sev
ered jugular vein. The murdered girl's
sister, who had by this time recovered
from her astonishment, grappled with
the woman and tried to hold her, but in
a twinkling she, too, received a cut but
luckily only a trifling one near the ear.
Miss Mitchell being freed from Mis?
Ward, ' jumped in the buggy and with
the exclamation, "drive quick; I've done
it," seized the whip ami with Miss John
ston still holding the lines the pair were
soon around the corner and away from
the scene of the tragedy.
Miss Ward was tenderly picked up by
the crowd and a passing carriage, which
was pressed into service, conveyed her
to Rogers' infirmary. She was, how
ever, beyond human aid, and expired
just as the infirmary was reached. Tho
body was then taken to an undertaking
