New Yohk, Jan. 22. A Horald cable
from Vnlpariso, Chile, says: I can state
positively that President Montt Wedncs
day told nn olHcial limit in Chilean
service that there was not the slightest
doubt that all matters at present in dis
pute between tho United States and
Chile would be amicably settled within
a short time.
It is a deliberate lie that the Yorktown
was fired upon. The facts that were
seized upon to circulate tho canard were
as follows: The Chilean torpedo boats
were practicing in Vnlpariso bay with
out torpedoes, only spars being used.
Ono of tho boats chanced to get near tho
Yorktown and when about thirty
meters away slewed mound. That was
absolutely all the foundation there was
to the report. Commander Evans being
ashore shortly after this took plaeu
talked a good deal about it to oui
oilicials here and notably to Consul
McCieary and Lieutenant Hailow. 1
have just had an interview with tho
captain of the Chilean torpedo launch,
Sargento Aldea. Ho says that all the
torpedo boats in question were ordered
to practice in the bay without torpedoes.
His launch while so engaged happened
to pass tho Yorktown circling. Ho in
dignantly denies that his action was in
any way insulting or intended as a prov
ocation to the American ship. Othei
Chilean officers are similarly at a loss to
understand why such a maneuver bhould
have been deemed a provocation of ill
The Chilean ships Esmorelda, Huascai
and Cochran and two torpedo boats have
sailed on a practice cruise. They "will
go first to Quinteros bay and then to
Talcahuano. Tho ships are uhdormaned.
On their southerly oruiso they will en
deavor to obtain recruits.
The sentiment of all elates of the
Chilean people, as far us I can discover,
is in iavor of amicable relations with
tho United States. They are anxious to
to avoid war. Despito all statements to
tho contrary, the peoplo ono and all be
lieve the matter in dispute between the
two countries can bo settled in accord
ance with tho terms and conditions
mentioned in these dispatches. It must
bo considered that while the Baltimore
caso has dragged slowly along, tho pro
cedure is only in accord with tho custom
of Spanish countries. In addition to this
tno permanent government, winch re
placed tho junta, now out of existence,
has only been established since Jan. 1,
1892. Then again, Senor Matta's con
duct in sending his aggravating circular
lias to bo remembered as bringing about
complications in the new cabinet which,
en now, is not by any means working
Before war can bo declared with any
show of justice, some definite demands
must bo made by tho United States and
I am given to understand through
Chilean official sources hero that nothing
of the kind has yet been made by tho
American govonunent. As I have be
fore cabled you, these warlike lepoits
are, iu my opinion, sent out from this
country by persons who seem anxious to
bring about serious trouble between
Chilo and tho United States. These dis
patches aro invariably colored highly
and in many instances are sent with tho
connivance of those who wish to profit

Washington, Jan. 22.- Secretary
Tracy received a formal call from tho
house couimitteo on nuvnl affairs during
tho morning. It was a regular call to
pay respects, however, and though Chil
ean matters may lmvo been actively dis
cussed, the visit was not made for that
purpose. Tho members of tho commit,
teo remained with tho secretary about
half an hour. When asked whether the
condition of the navy in connection
with the iiending Chilean troubles was
broached, the members of tho commit
tee evaded the question by suggesting
that such subject will bo more properly
subject of consideration at a call from
the secretary of tho committee. The
members gavo the impression that Chil
ean affairs formed a very small part or
indeed scarcely any portion of tho con-

states that Captain Evans of tho United

carried them under tho United States

Captain Evans, the dispatch adds, is

Anamosa, Io., Jan. 22 A sudden leap
from Iwhind prison bars into matrimony
occurred hero today. About three years
ugo an intelligent young man met an in
dustrious young woman in tho custom
poition of tho state. She fell deeply in
love with him, and ho, taking advantage
of her strong affections and with prom
ises of marriage, accomplished her ruin,
no was appealed to to fulfill his promises,
but stubbornly refused, and a stem
judge sentenced him to two years in the
penitentiary. Today he finished his term
and no sooner was ho given his liberl
than tho girl whom he had so cruelly
wronged rushed into his anus and ini
ploiod him to marry her. The two yeain
at hard work hud softened tho young
man's heart, and ho consented to the
union. They at once repaiirtl to a min
ister and aio now man and wife.
