Stir Up Japan
Yokohama, Oct. 8. Tho Chilian blue
jackets on tho gunboat Gen, Baqiicndo
rla now In port, aro a hard crowd. Wo
use tho word deliberately. They might
pardoned for the display of a little ex
hilaration and noisiness, nor aro tho
sona of tho ocean expected to bo "plas
ter saints" wo quote KIpHng with re
luctanceany more than Tommy At
kins. But whqn they begin to draw
knives and chase Inoffensive subjects
of the Emperor of Japan It Is time to
register a big kick, and It would please
us better It that kick could be admin
istered In a palpable and effective man
ner on 'some tender portion of these
Chilian savages' persons. On Saturday
evening wo narrated with great pain a
gruesome story of "alarums and ex
cursions" In tho "Bloodlown" district
of this thriving port. On tho same fato
ful day, anothor gang of these ruKlans
wero raising hilarious Sheol near Yo-shlhama-bashl,
corner of No. 273 nt

loomed up at tho head of n posse of
constables, ho found the Chilians light
ing llko demons with tho posse com
Itatiis. Tho row begun In this wls6.
Half a doezn sailors who were, of
course, drunk, began first to right
among themselves, and then by. Way of
a change one of them purfiicd"atid cap
tured a small boy, thrashed him with a
stick, and finally pulled out a Jak
knife with which he threatened to dis
sect his victim. A Japanese working
man Interfered and rescued tho boy.
Tho Chilians were arrcstei ond march
ed oft to the Kagacho pnllco station,
and later In the day an Inspector went
aboard the warship and explained mat
ters to an officer. The same evening
tho latter visited tho Kagacho police
station with a guard and took his un
ruly followers Into custody. Another
weak-minded bluejacket was found cry
ing In lsezaktcho, the name day, and
when examined by a policeman stated
that he had been robbed to a 'rlklsha
coollo near the Yoshlwara.
It will be remembered that thee Gen.
Baquedano paid a visit to this port.
Her men did not cut up any antics
here. They are evidently not very fond
of tho Japanese.
