WAMimiro.v , January L'O.In in

in the Washington Post to-morro\
morning , ex-Scerotary Ulainoomphat-
ically denies the the published report
that the diplomatic instructions t <
Trescott , signed by him , have beet
drafted and committed to Tros
cott without the president's know )
edizo. The instructious were not on
ly tnlko.l over at length with the president
idont , but when written were reai
twice to him for criticism and change
"I have 110 original draft in my pos
session , with the modifications dcsirec
by the president clearly notuil. Tt h
inconccivnhlo that nn i Kraordimirj

tinned in an annual message to con

in his buhulf I repel it. "
Prucecding Air. Hluino bays ho never <
or 8i > nt any important dispatches 01
this subject without consulting cithe
Garliold or Arthur ; he also says
"What possible interest could I have
myself in sending instruction withou
thu full knowludgd of thb ; president
I was to loavoi fhc'dopartmeiit in

care not to send instruction merely t <
hiu'o it revoked. In addition to otho

Blaino. "It b tho. undoubted righ
of the president , as it is of a private

When"osk'cd whether ho know o
any reason to change his mind ivt to

both . presidents , ho replied : "I' d (
not , but time and reflection nnd development

Hlaino , after a short silence , "tha
one result nf the change will be th
utter destruction of the commercia
interests of the I'nitod States on th
South Pacific coast. "
In regard to the rumor that he hai
de.sired to annex Peru to the I'iiitec
States , ho says ; "You might as wol
thinji "f Minexing Terra del Fnogo o
the island of Juan Fernandez to this
country. Christiancy mentioned some
such tiling as desired in Peru , but
never thought it of sufficient oonao
uncnco or importuiu-e to call for an
comment. It was merely tho/lcupair
iiig cry of the down-trodden Peru
vians. My dispatches on the Isthmus
canal question , published by order o. .
the president , disclaimed for the
Tnitod States any desire for territor
ial ! acquisition in Afoxico or Centra'
America. It has never occurred tome
im that the annu.vation of South
American territory calls for a din
laimer. 1 " .
The ox-secretary in the course ol
the interview , says that not only wan
there no attempt madu on the part of
the I'niled States to push the claims
private citi/ons against Peru , but
the contrary was carefully
avoided. tjuoUttioim are mudu from
heretofore published corrcspondonco .
with Air. Hurlbm , Miowing that di
reef cauti m waa given nnd how it
waa Deeded. The particular cases re
ferred to in these i\notations \ are tjio
'uchuit claim and other plans of the
Peruvian company. In regard to the
l/tndri'ju claim , ho says : "The ,
Imuso of icprosontativi.'H in the lust
i.'iiniji'uss unanimously adoptud a reso '
lution re < | iiostiiig the state depart
ment : to use its good olticos on behalf
Landrcauyilh tinPoruviaii gov- t
crnmont. This was a very rare and
exceptional < aoi , and placed the J > uii- of
drcau claim on a ditl'oreat basis frrm
; other. The state department no-
cordingly instructed ( ien , Hurlbut to
his good offices with the Puriivinn
govonnnont to the end that it would
designate ono of its own courts or
tribunals before which Landreaucould
appear and have the justice ol his
claim ; tested. I oxprcHsly stated that
government would not undertake
construe i . a contract or dttcidi upon
i-oinpeiiEiitiim duo LaiuIntiiU , and I to
od that while o/i minister could
make nn official demand for set- : has !
.lenient of thu claim , ho could nso bin in
offices to sccuro its connidora- byte
. Our minister had been author- to
in 187-1 by Secretary Fish fo use nn
good offices in aid of the Laiidreau
, Afterwards Air. Hurlbut waa
iistructcd ! Hint the claim must not be v .
re.ssod to embarrass Pern in her din-
ress. "
Mr. Hlaiiio further wiys that "tho liu
department gave im ironclad All
] thai it would yivo no aid and All
ountenanco ! no counsel or oiicciunigoia
to any other claim whatever to
'amnt Peru duriny my seoretaiyship , ish
to HUH claim to the extent only of nw
that Irfiudrcnu might hnvo tin
, priilego of appearing before n Peru
| vlnn court ami hnvo his rights , whnt-
ever they might bo , decided by Pom
vinn authority. " Air. Hlaino translates
latos Air. Trcscott's official dispatch to
moan tlmt Chili is willing and glad to
accept mediation of the United Statoa
if that mediation can boused 10 induce
Porn to submit quietly to destruction
bill if the United States' special onvov
cannot bo used for that end Chili wil
hnvo no more to do with him nnd In
can pack up nnd come homo in :
meek and lowly frame of mind that
would belli such n returning journey
The demand of Chili is equivalent ti
nothing short of Pom's deilruction ,
Air. Hlnino thinks , for by it Peru is
not left with power to raise 20,000,000
cents. Chili evidently wants ter
ritory : , not money. The 1/ibes island ?
would soil nt auction for Iwico § 20-
000,000 and Chili evidently derive r
very largo amount from their owner
shin. The Aric.i and Labos islands
will bo us completely in her pnsies
sion as Tarnpuca
Air. Hlatn also s.iya that nil instruc
lions sent from the state department
while ho was secretary fully rocog
that Chili was entitled to u wai
indemnity from Porn , and Peru oitg
to have boon allowed to pay it cash in
domnily nnd ought not to bo subjected
od to a destruction of her nationality.
Air Hlaino then proceeded to sun
up the richness of Peru , and to shou
that Chili seeks to take all the rid
slice "Pom was exhausted by her
extravagant outlays on railroads , hai
no navy and a disorganized army ,
Chili got her navy from England
English sympathy , says lie , has stooi :
behind her at every step in her con
quest , and English commercial inter
est received troinomliom aid from tlio
nggrandutiinont oi Chili. While
think tlio resu't ' of this Poru-Chiloan
war destrojs American influence oi
the south Pacific cuat and littorl )
will wipe out American commorciu
interests in that region. I admir
England's ceaseless activity , but I d (
not believe in haviiit ; it oxotciscd a
the expense of the Tinted States
Hsiiocially do I dislike to see
winning great commercial triumphs ii
a field tlmt Ibgitimatoly belongs to tin
United St.itcs , and that the .Unitoi
States could readily coiirraiul if alu
would. England will absorb this trad
aa completely as eho absorbs that <
Portugal or of Egypt , of Australia o :
of Brazil. "
Air. Hlaino continues : "It take :
more gold and silver than wo mint it
all the United States every year t
pay Ihu back balance which Soutl
America brings against the Unitei
States annually , tn other words , w <
buy of them more than wo sell t <
them by a hundred million of dollan
ovcry year. It will bo worao here
after. It waa in our power to inak
it vastly better. " He then declare *
that the United States never intrndoc
to make war on Chili and thinks no
ono was afraid she would make war oi
the United States. The whole talk o
war with Chili he considers to have
been absurd. Air. Vlainc insists tha
his policy , in this matter , instead o
being a now departure , waa directly
in the line of the safest precedent !
laid down by onr moat distinguished
and uonaorvativevecrelaries of state
He refers to the steady intluen ce ox
fife aufliority of Jaurex. in Mexico , th
moral power of the United States bj
which the French were expelled
Alaximilliau overthrown and a republican
lican government with Jaurcz at its
head restored. It would not hayi
required aa great an exertion of th
moral influence of the United States
to save Peru from destruction aim
make Peru and Chili botl
our friends. He does not think ,
however , that il was necessary to t
half 8o fur as Air. Buchanan wont n
the case with Panama , but that the
steady moral pressure ot the LTnito <
States would have saved the nation
nlily of Peru as it did tlmt of Alexico.
Then Hlaino goes further back. Ho
says that Air. Adams , when secretary
of state under President Monroe , unci
Air. Clay , when secretary under Air.
Adams , Iwth took a bold stand in
recognizing and aiding the Spanish
American republics when at war with
Spain. At that time we had only ton
millions of people , and our revenue in
a year scarcely so large as wo have
now in a week , but we did not then
say that a contest in South America
was of no interest to the United
States. Air. Adams and ATr. Clay
thought differently and spoke boldly
ind patriotically , and intended
.Iro influence of the United
States in aid of the miller-
ng American republic ) . We can't
afford , in our power to do loss than
ivo our weakness. Air. Hlaine
says he was first induced to USD thu
moral influence of the United States
o Have Peru _ because she made an
earnest appeal' thu United States to
Kavo her. She did not ask military on
'ntorforenuo ; she merely asked tluut
ho I'nitod States stand by her an-
honty and it would save her from de it
struction. She felt that heavy hand
England upon her at every turn.
Mr. Hlaine predicts for Peru after
Chili has taken nil her valuable terri
tory thai she will either fall into an
archy or bo kept in subjection by a
Chilean army of occupation , to be
sxpported from the property which
Peru is despoiled. ithor ro- in
suit will bo sufficiently wretched
and the end will be an absolute domi
nation of English influence in both to
Peru and Chili. Air. Hlaino declines
speak in regard to u congress of
American nations of which so much
boon said , jle saya : "No paper
regard to it has been made public eau
the president and I have no right
speak about any diplomatic jtn'pur
until it is given to the world. "

an monopoly majority of between
