''I have received authentic informatim
from Santiago that ex-President Balma

Acting Secretary of State Wharton's ac

The presence of oolitical refugees cn
board the American and German warsh'ips
aas neen me cause ot several conferences
and much ill feeling. Among the mire

Much indignatiou is felt, both iu official
Mid unofficial circles, that these men
should be kept from the authorities. A
formal demand for their surrender was
made tunday on Admiral Brown aud the
'iermun admiral by Iutendente Joaquin
Walker-Iartiuez. After a consultation
the naval officers informed Senor Walker
Martinet that they would decline to sur
render the men luriess proper guarantees
were given tha their lives would be safe
until they had a fair trial.
Reaching an Agreement.
They were then requested bv the intetid-
snt to furnish a list of all the men who
bad sought refuge on the warships, so
that the proper officials could decide
which should receive the guarantee. This
list was furnished. At a conference held
Minday night between the two admirals
und the refugees the former nrom-
sed that all of them who were not
guaranteed proper treatment would be put
aboard a steamer and seut direct to Peru.
Arrangements have been made for a con
ference between the admirals and congres
sionulist leaders to dispose finally of the
refugees, aud it is generally thought that
the plan to send them to Peru will be
agreed upon. The French admiral re
fused to harbor any of the refugees.

One of the men kept him covered with a
