Ni:w Yohi:, Jim. 5. A Valparaiso ca
blegram to tin' Herald loads thus:
I leant on reliable authority tho fol
lowing important facts legariling the an
swer Njnt by Senor Matta, at tho t.i ii lie
was mini ter of foreign affairs, to Presi
dent Harrison's message and which wan
cabled to Chile's ministers in Europe and
America us the provisional government's
reply to tho United Stales. It appears
that at a meeting of President Monti's
old cabinet, called to discuss President
HatiiFon'p message, Minister Malta was
authorized to reply to it. He wrote out
a dociunont and cabled it to the Chilean
minister tit Washington, Senor Moult,
without ever having shown it to Presi
dent Montt.. In spite of this omission,
Minister Matta, in sending u message to
Minister Egan on the same subject.
states that the document was the official
utteratue of the Chilean government.
He made a siniiUt statement before the
senate. When the truth was known it
was then too late for President Montt or
the other membets of tho cabinet to dis
avow tho responsibility for the curt tone
of the reply and at the same time avoid
giving offence just then to tho radical
party, of which Senor Malta was leader.
Now, however, tho radical party as
well as tho leading members of congress,
are fully inclined to disavow and disown
the retired ministers words. The pres
ont ministry is preparing another docu
ment as a substitute for Senor Malta's
undiplomatic letter. It is stated tho
German empeior will bo sought as an
arbitrator in tho Baltimore care, but
that before this is acceded to by tho
United States an apology will be asked
from tho German minister, Ilerr
Gutschmidt, for certain alleged undiplo
matic ptoceedings on his part toward the
American government's representatives.
Tho new Chilean craKer President

Mail Orderly Bradley of tho York town,
who disappeated mysteriously after hav
ing been sent ashore on Dec. 29 to bend
a cable dispatch, and who it was thought
might have been killed by persons inim
ical to tho Americans, has been hciud
from, and it turns out that there is a
woman in tho case. It is said that Brad
loy and tho woman have left Valparaiso
for some unknown place.

CuiCAao, Jan. 5. Colonel J. Par
Parker Read, at present in this city, litis
been living from time to time sinco 1870
in Chile. In an interview ho said there
was no fear of war with Chile. "My
wifo and four children," said ho, "tiro in
tho city of Valparaiso and 1 feel just as
safe about them as though they were hero
in Chicago. My wifo and son keep mo
posted upon tho feeling entertained by tho
Chileans toward this country and I feol
euro it has not changed of lato. Chilo is
a young, bright, proud and energetic
nation. Naturally enough her eoplo
love tho United States aa nearly akin to
themselves in progress and enterprise."
"But it was a mistake to bend Egan to
Chile," continues Mr. Head. "There
tho leading men are of English birth and
patentageand naturally look with dis
favor on Egan. Aa the representative of
tho United States ho is treated with duo
res'tcet, hut wo cannot expect more. All
talk of war, however, is bosh, and wo
should bo ashamed to whip Chile. Hu
miliating it would bo for us lo attack
Chile, and what would we gainV Chilt)
is a proud, beautiful little country, and
tho United States is too big to engage in
such iietty business, and thoro is too
much manliness in Americans to pitch
into a little country that is standing up
for what it considers to bo its rights. As
to tho Baltimore incident, tho Chilean
courts tiro investigating tho affair, and
wo may bo euro that if an apology is duo
us wo will got it without Hiking. Nat
urally tho peoplo tiro our friends and
look to tho United States with pride as
tho highest exponent of civilization."

Tho unofficial announcement of tho prac
tical completion of tho judicial proceed
ings in Valparaiso and tho intention of
Chilean legal authorities to punish tho
three Chileans convicted of participation
in tho assault has given sati.sfatiou here
and is generally legarded as 11 distinct
concession by tho Chileans' to tho United
States, showing thero will not in all
probability bo further undue delay in
tho disposition of tho case.
These tidings have not, as far as can
bo learned, been officially made known
to Blaine by Montt, and it may bo that
Montt will await tho sentence of the con
victed Chileans before he piesents to the
secretary the conclusions reached by tli6
judicial authorities of his country. 'With
mutters in this promising condition it is,
therefote, unlikely that 11 distuibmg ele
ment will bo introduced in tho negotia
