"WASHINGTON, Sept. 5.-Secretary Rnsk
In a letter to Hon. W. H. Hatch, of Mis
souri, informing him of tbe removal of
the prohibition of American pork by Ger
many, says the thanks of the farmers of
this country are due to Mr. Hatch for his
efforts in their behalf, and especially be
cause of his advocacy before the house of
representatives of the meat inspection bill,
without which the removal of the prohibi
tion could not have been obtained.
Your I'ncle Jerry la Happy.
Secretary Hnsk is the happiest man in
Washington. The news that the embargo
npou his particular pet, the American
hog, had been lifted by the German em
peror reached him Thursday evening as he
was leaving his office. His fine burst into
a smile as he read the document. Jump
ing into his carriage he bade the driver
speed to newspaper row that the joyous
intelligence might be flashed to all the
world. He smiled as he read it to the cor
respondents, he Kiuiled when he went to
bed, h smiled when he got to his office
yesterday morning, and he continued to
smile ail day.
Means Good Price for Pig.
"It means more than the admission of
our pork to Germany," he said. "It means
that other nations will quickly follow
Emperor William's example and admit
our pork to all Europe. The embargo
placed npon our pork by these other na
tions was due to the fear that their pork
would tie forbidden entrance to Germany
if they determined tQ receive ours. The
governments of Sweden, Norway and Den
mark informed us tnat they were com
pelled to shut out our pork, because if
they did not Germany would shut out
theirs. They will now lift the embargo,
and so, too, will the other nations.
Inspection IHcl the Work.
' "This is the opening wedge, and all the
European doors that have been closed to
our farm pruducts will now. I predict, fly
open to their entry. No, I do not attri
bute this to the short crops abroad so
much as to our new system of inspection.
It has proved that no diseased meat can en
ter foreign ports from tbe United Sta'es
and therefore the only cause for complai it
is removed. Had not Germany raised the
embargo it could not have expected us to
take her beet sugar." ,
The Great American Dion.
"And youi dext step!-"
"Will be to teach the Europeans the use
of corn. Tbey are at present ignorant of
it. The rye crop in Germany is a failure.
Therefore now is tbe time to teach them
the use of our corn. All of our south and
a large part of onr west use corn for bread
instead of v. heat. It costs only half as
much, and I am sure the foreigners will
shortly be crying eagerly for it. When
that cry is hegnn there will be no more
corn burnt in this country tor fuel," and
then the se.Tetary, with a broader smile.
cpncluded,-"then the great American dish,
hog and hominy, will become the staple
dish of the world."

The President and Vlne.
WAsmsciTox, Sept. 5. There has for
some time been a disposition on the part
of some newspapers of a Prohibition stand
ing to jilaim the president as a likely can
didate for membership to that body. Other
papers have charged him with simp'y
angling for the Prohibition vote. Tne
information upon which the first
class basest its opinions, and conse
quently the second, is wrong. "Tha pres
ident drinks as much now as he ever did,"
said a frequenter of the executive mansion.
"That amou.it is small. But he neither
makes a show of It, nor does he affect to
think its influence evil. He has wine upon
his table at dinner and partakes as he
would of any other part of the menu. The
president is no hypocrite. If he didn't
like wine he wouldn't drink it. As he
does like it be drinks it, and drink it he
will continue to do, whether the Prohibi
tionists like it or not."
Compliment. Illioola Guard. men.
Wabhingion, Sept. 5. "The National
Guard of Illinois is a flue body of men and
has made very creditable progress," says
Captain E. G. Matheoy, of the Seventh
United States cavalry, in a report sub
mitted to the war department. He highly
commejyis. the officers, aqd mentor their
eaitfJtyf'feffoats eSoih prebend and dis
cbarge their duties. He notes with satis
faction the elimination of the display
element with a corresponding growth o
military knowledge. He suggests that
the guasd could be materially strength
et ed by the addition of cavalry and ar
tillery, which require much time for or
ganization and would be of great value in
tine of disturbance.

Washington, Sept. 5.-United States

WHAT ALGER NEVER SAID.
The IHBtinguUhed Soldier Make a Few
Chicago, Sept 5. "I have never said to
any one that I would or would not be a
candidate for the presidential nomination
before the Republican national conven
tion," said General Russell A. Alger, of
Detroit, at the Grand Pacific. "I did not
tell Grand Army men or any other per
sons thst I would not be a candidate and
that 1 was for Blaine. All stories of that
kind you may set down as fabrications.
The Grand Army men at Detroit knew
bettf-r than to talk politics. 1 have not
disct-ssed ' tbe question of my own can
didacy, and I certainly will not decline in
Doesn't Know Blaine' Wishes.
'R-'garding Mr. Blaine's nomination I
have said before, and I say now, that
it depends on him?elf. If Mr. Blaine
wish-M that nomination he can have it
without a struggle. No one will oppo.-e
him. Another misstatement going the
ronnlsisthe story that I said that Mr.
Blaii.e told me he was a candidate. That
is simply not so. I saw Mr. Blaine at Bar
Harbor three weeks ago, and yet today I
know no more as t o his wishes in the mat
ter than vou do."

clared Faloe Prominent Chilian of
Both Faction Ready to Corroborate
Santiago, Sept. 6. United States Min
ister Patrick Egan was seen yesterday.
He talked freely and fully, and appeared
to feel keenly the fact that his official acts
had been criticised and his motives im
pugned. He said: '-I am more than will
ing to have all of my actions thoroughly
investigated and to have all my dispatches
to the state department made public. I
emphatically deny that since coming here
I have shown any partisanship for Presi
dent Balmaceda. I was accredited to his
government, and by returning bis esteeta
1 have been enabled to effect the escape
and save the lives of many prominent
leaders of the opposition, who were hourly
in danger of their lives.''
Not in Any Nitrate Deal.
'How about the alleged nitrate
"I have never been asked nor have I in any
way profiled by a connection with any ni
trate scheme. Nor do I expect nor have I
expected to so profit by any such scheme.
My son advanced money to a railroad con
tractor. The contractor failed, and Dy
son lost his mouey." Minister . Egan
showed a copy of the letter which he had
sent to Admiral McCann at Iquique, and
which was quoted by the admire! to the
junta as giving the minister's opinion thr.t
Balmaceda's government could not be
overthrown. It was this letter which led
the junta to refuse Mr. Egan's good offices
in, bringing about peace.
Not Intended for Publication.
The letter is as follows: "I learn that
the government has 30.0C0 soldiers and
10,000 police well armed and equipped.
From your information and other sources
I am led to believe that the opposition
have only a few thousand men, wanting
in arms, etc. My opinion is that this gov
ernment can not be overthrown. I am
therefore rtady and anxious to do all I
can to bring alKut peace between tbe
contending parties and to save unneces
sary bloodshed in this country." Mr.
Egan said that one of Admiral AlcCann's
officers sent a letter to the junta with an
alleged topy of his letter. He contended
that the letter was private, ami its publi
cation officially was never thought of.
The 1'erfidiou and Jeadou Hriton.
Ever since my arrival here," continued
Mr. Egan, with a trace of bitterness in his
voice, "the English, who are naturally an
tagonistic to me, have looked with a jeal
ous eye on my success in obtaining recog
nition for American citizens and payment
of their claims. So far as my sympathies
go they are extended to all. For four
months my honse was the asylum of men
like Edwardo Montt, Carlos Walker-Martinez,
Augustus Edwards and other prom
inent opposition leaders. Together with
Consul McCreary J have saved from death
and imprisonment maay men. There are
today in the legation twenty of tbe trice
prominent adherents of Blmaceda who
have not left the country."
AWED A MOB OF CHILIANS.
Attempt to Violate the Legation Re
pulsed Egan Corroborated.
A mob visited the United States lega
tion on the night of Aug. 29 and demanded
that Minister Godoy's brother be given up
to them. Mr. Egan went out and told
them that Senor Godoy was under ti e
protection of the flag of the United States
and that the fir.t man who attempted to
enter the door of tbe legation building
would 1 shot. His calm bearing and de
termined tone awed the mob and they
left, cheering for the flag.
Italniaredans Speak for Egan.
William McKenna and Senor Vbanez,
ex-Chilian minister to the United Sta'e--,
both Balmaceda's supporters, deny posi
tively that, Mr. Egan had any connection
whatever with any nitrate-scheme. TLey
say that he used all his influence with
Balmaceda to bring about peace and es
tablish reforms. Both McKenna and
Vbanez charge that Colonel North, the
English nitrate king, was the cause of the
Received Kindly by the Junta.
President Montt, of the junta, and h.'s
cabinet received Minister Egan wiih
great kindness on learning tbe truth
about his conduct from Senor Montt and
others in Santiago. Montt says: -Win u
the time comes I stand ready to vouch for
Minister Egan's behavior in every way.
He is a gentleman, honorable and loyal to
the country of his adoption." American
residents in Santiago and Valparaiso af
firm the views expressed by Senor Montt,
while regretting Mr. Egan's selection as
minister to Chili from an American stand
point. Horrible, Itut Lack Details.
CniCAGo, S.-pt. 5 A dispatch has been
received heie stating that the dynamite
factory of F. H. Reynolds & Co., at White
Pigeon, Mich., c mtaining twenty tons of
dynamite, exploded Thursday morning.
Sixteen workmen were annihilated so mat
no vestige of them could be found. Their
names cannot be learned, as the books of
the company were destroyed. The finan
cial loss is (35.000. There are no details
of the alleged disaster up to this writing.
Not in Favor of Clu.inc the Fair.
Chicago, Sept. 5. A short canvass of
the World's fair commissioners develops
the fact that, a large majority of
them are in favor of keeping the
fair open on Sunday, but in
such a manner as not to require the fair
employes to be on hand. For instance,
it is proposed that the machinery shall not
ran on that day. It looks like this will
be the arrangement made.
Personal as to Secretary Blaine.
Bar Harbor, Ale., Sept. 5. Mr. Blaine
has been out very often every day this
week. Wednesday he drove out twice, and
Thursday be did the same. He drove into
the village, left his carriage and went into
several of the shops, then dropped into
Dr. Taylor's. He walks out with the doc
tor every day. -;
