WASHINGTON , March 28. The state
department communication which the
president transmitted to the house
was in response to the resolution
passed yesterday requiring any proto
col or ether dosuniontasigned by Tros
cott relating to pdaco between Ohili
and Poru. The response states that
no protocol ordocument of that nature
bra boon received from Troscott , and
no nforniation haaboen received from
him or any American representative
in Chili or Peru that such a document
has been signed. The president , how-
eror dooms it proper to submit copies
of correspondence with Trescott
since his last communication
to the house on thu subject.
The first document submitted
is a telegram from FrelinghuysenJ to
Troscott , dated February 4th , saying
the president instructs him to say the
United States government only pro
poses to give counsel and aid negotia
tions. Chili must determine whether
it is wise to accept counsel. No part
will bo taken by the United States in
negotiations based on the surrender
of Tarapaca aud the payment of 20-
000,000 indemnity. The demand ia
looked upon as exorbitant , and the
time is come when Chili can afford to
be magnanimous and just.
A telegram from Frelinphuyson to
Trescott , dated 21st of February ,
permits Trescott to assist to a liberal
war indomity , but says the cession ot
Tan pi a must not bo assented
to without further consultation with
this government by cable and aaya it
is not possible the creditora of Peru
may uiaintim its revenues , which are
hypothecated to thorn. The telegram
closes by saying : "Tho president >
urged moderation on the part of
Ohili. "
Next follows a long letter from
Frulinghuyaen to Trescott , dated
February 24th , in which he reiteratoa
Iho suggestions of the dispatches N
mentioned , and says the president is
very desirous of having the good
offices of the United States made
\-t \ available in restoring peaco.ibut.ia
unwilling to boeoino the medium for Bfi
a proposal which he thinks BO enor 01
mous that it cannot be entertained tr
by Pertif He is still of thn opinion CO
that it would bn the part of wisdom h
for Chili to accept from Peru a just thM
indemnity in monoyguarantcod If in
sisted , by temporary tu
upon occupation
tion of territory , rather than to pre- dcB
omptorily demand cession of territory.
On the other hand he is convinced H11
that the United States has no right St
either by treaty stipulation or public in
law to impose upon the bilJigorents
unasked , ita views and it hay no in
terests at stake so commcnsura'o with
the evils which might fol Na
low interference , which would
authorize it to interpose further than so
as indicated. If Chili is indisposed
to listen to hia advice , the president in
will no.t tike part in negotiations he
based on both surrender of Tarapaca ar
and payment of a largo indemnity. th
To demand of Peru the surrender of beSt
a valuable province and the payment St
Lt § 20,000,000 in ton years , with a
disorganized government and des
poiled territory , is to aak what she
cannot render , and the president
feola that Treacott may frankly pa
of [
and in a friendly spirit bring these til
considerations btfoie the in nistor ,
of foreign affairs in conversation with
him. It ia understood that all Peru int
west of the Andes is in occuoattuii by an Si
Ohili , and all care in maintaining thu de
government and protecting society is
thrown upon the htatilo occupiers.
Chilean representatives claim that Nai
only the Chilean bayoiiot a'avcs Peru
from anarchy. If this bo true , ono IVt
of four things must follow : First , foi
armed occupation must bo thu govern avi
ment ; or second , the invader must bo
driven out by force ; or third , Chili en
will withdraw , claming to much of it 8W
aa it desire. * , and le.tvo the in
rest to its fate , or fourth , we
an honorable peace must bo
mude. Chilli [ c.iu hardly
the first , and will not admit the etc- .v
end possible , but cventa in the his
tory of those two powers show that enRi
what seems impossible has taken Ri
place. The third alternative seems ap
impracticable. If it were Chili could fit
not justify itself before the world , an
and if it should eventuate in the ob- ha
aorption of Peruvian territory , whoso thi
pr ducts are pledged to creditors , it Tli
could not be done without raising a of t
grave.question in the future of Ohili , teby <
which the United States as a friend of by
that energetic , industrious people P.dii
would wish to have avoided , The dii
fourth alternative is , in the
president's opinion , the wisest
course and one ho dc- Na
tires to sue brought about by
peaceful influences. The traditional 11. :
attitude of this country toward sister .
republics is ouo of peace. While wo an
would draw thorn nearer to us , we do bore
not propose ( o force our \ iows upon
them or act as arbitrator or umpire
unless by the desire of both parties ,
or by controlling interests of our own ,
The letter here again urges the ro ;
views already expressed that Tara- nu
paca should not bo demanded by at t
Chili , unlesa it should eventuallyjbe-
coino Chilean through the inability ol
Peru to pay a nvwonnb'o indemnity ,
to bo agreed upon. The president
doea not presume to a/ what
the indemnity should bo , but loavt
it to the discretion of Troscott to as
sent to tender the good offices nf the
United States to Peru on a b Ms of *
very liberal indemnity to Chili. If
Peruvian territory is spared ; if Ohili
insists on retaining any part of the
territory whoso products are claimed
to bo hypothecated to creditors of
Peru , the president in unwilling to
involve the United States in the
complications which might onsuo. Ho
prefers to reserve to this government
the full right to determine its course
should such complications arise.
The next document is it tolognim
to Frolingliuyson , received on the
25th of February , in which ho says
Chili refuses to modify the terms of
peace ; that slio allogcH they nro
better than thu terms oifored at
Lima and Arica. The terms , ho says
are extremis , but Chili js strong and
Peru so crippled that more interven
tion will have no effect. Ho asks in *
struct ions by cab'o , and adds that ho
thinks there is no usorcinainingthcro ,
nd closes by asking if ho shall go lo
Peru and Bolivia , and whether Walter
lilaino shall remain or return. To
this Secretary Frolinghuysen replied
that it is preferred that both remain
for the present , and report the situa
tion from time to time , Jos ng no op
portunity to carry out the president's
views as indie ited.
The next is a telegram to Froling-
huyson , dated March 5h , which
says ho carried out his instruc
tions , but tha terms will not
be modified by Chili and adds : The
publication of the instructions to mo
and my Confidential Telegram has
made it impossible to secure modifi
cation. I will stay ns directed , but I
think with the information I have I
ban bo more useful in Washington. "
On March 15th , ho telegraphed ho
had a full and friendly interview with
the minister of foreign affairs , and as
a result , thinks his presence is requir
ed in Peru. Bluino , ho nays , will go
to Bolivia and thenjo join him in
Porn. Ho closes by saying : "You
need have no fear that I shall depart
from your instructions. "

lost control of hia engine. This , how
ever , ho denies , Baying that it wa
purely accidental and something for
which ho wna not responsible.
Flahnrity was
in the yards at Loadv'ille. Ho was
ordered to go down the road and meet
the incoming patsongcr at Eilor'a.
Just as ho started out of the yards the
strap connected with the lever broke
and ho lost all control of the engine.
The engine was a new ono and in good
condition , and ho sayo ho never can
xph in just why or how it happened.
Iluuning at a tremendous speed and

Flarharily , "when I found that tha
