Washington, Jan. 21. Chilean Min
ister Montt's resideiico is a small, mod
fbt house with a high stoop and two
ground glass globes on tall posts at the
foot of the flight of btnirs leading to the
frontdoor. Senor Montt is peculiarly
tlio representative of Chilo at this mo
ment and therefore peculiarly inteiest
Ing to Americans. Ho is the cousin of
the Chilean president and no doubt exer
cises much individual discretion as to
the nature of his dealings with Ameri
can authorities. Ho is an interesting
man to look at and rather distinct from
the average typo of South Americans
seen in this country. He displays nono
of that variety of personal apparel which
ts so often noticed among South Ameri
cans. Ho is rather a short man. His
face is strong, covered with a short
black beard, slightly mixed with gray.
His complexion is extremely dark,almost
black. His eyes aro very dark and aie
rather clo'U) together. There is a slight
Binking in at the temples, and the out
lines of his face in other ways suggests
that of Emile Zola. His month is pe
culiarly strong. His black hair is ox-
treinely thick with a slight curling ten
dency, and grows straight up from the
forehead, without any attempt at a part
of any kind. Ho is most natural and
simple in his manner. His manner of
speech is very direct. Ho is ovidently
cnt out for n diplomat, for ho manages
to say just exactly what he wants to say
and no more, without any way hesitat
ing in his speech or appearing to pick
Hero is the substance of what ho said
on the question which is now Agitating
Americans: "All the war talk is in
America. Nobody wants war in Chile
or suggests war. The word war does
not occur in newspapers or any letters
that I receive from homo. I would show
you all my lotters and newspapers, of
which the latest leceived aio dated Dee.
7, and you would seo that nobody had
any desire for war. Wo havo gone
through gi eat excitement and what wo
desire now is peace and quiet and a
chanca to increaso tho greatness of tho
country in legitimato peace always."
"How about Egan, Mr. Montt?"
'I would rather not talk about Mr.
Egan," replied tho minister very boftly.
Have you anything to say as to the
message addressed by Captain Evans,
commander of tho Yorktown, to Minis
"Commander Evans sent no message
to Periera, He bent a message, which
of course you know about, to the naval
commander. Tho implication on his
part Unit the Chilean government
changed its mind was without founda
tion. Ho was simply told that the gov
ernment of Chilo had chosen to ignoio
the pissago of tho refugees from San
tiago to Valparaiso. Tlio government
had given no safe conduct and could not
dobo. It had simply ignored tho fact
that any such transfer of tho refugees
was made. It also ignored tho fact of
their prosonco on board the man-of-war."

Washington, Jan. 21. The star of
peace was in tho ascendancy at the cap
ital Wednesday. There is no tangiblo
reason for tho pacific view of tho Chil
ean situation and tho waning of tho war
talk which has been indulged in during
the last few days by many congress
men, Nevertheless there was a wide
spread conviction that war was not tho
necessary outcome of the present com
plications between the United States and
Chile, although there wasalbo a general
belief that the good temper and forbear
ance of this country is being soiely
tried by tho exasperating procrastination
of tlio Chilean government in tho cor
respondence. Commodore Ilamsay, chiof of the
bureau of navigation, said Wednesday
morning it was not tine, as reported
Tuesday, that Rear Admirals Gherardi
and Walker had been ordered to Val
paraiso, and that tho first named had
been ordorod to assume command of tho
Americrti fleet in tho Southern Pacific.

committee, who is reported to havo ex

While the cabinet as a body did not as

tho joint presence of Blaine, Elkins and
Tracy at tho white house Wednesday af
ternoon boio a htrong resemblance to a
meeting of the cabinet. They remained
in conference with tho president for a
long time and General J. W. Foster was
called on for consultation. The discus

question mostly under consideration was

Secretary Tracy received a cable mes
sage from Commander Evans Wednes

is regarded at tho navy department as an

NkwYokk, Jan. 21. Tlio Herald's
correspondent at Valparaiso cables as
follows: Tho United States cruiser
Yorktown sails tonight for Callao, Peru,
with tho BjUinueedist refugees. As I
cabled you last night tho Chilean au

knowledge ofHhe refugees leaving tho

British worship Poinen and the Chilean
steamers have gone to tho assistance of
tho wrecked vessel. Tho Cleary opera

Why It AVua Nut Sunt.
Washington, Jan. 21. It is said that
tho le.ison President Harrison did not
send in his Chilean message Wednesday
is because Minister Montt went to bee
hiui and asked him to give his country a
little more time.
Another rumor is that England hap
told Chilo that she ought to apologize
and make rotmration and that if she did
not havo tho money to do bo that coun
tiy would advance it. Tlio mossago ia
now not looked for possibly before next
week, though no one is prepared to say
why this is tho case.
