THE AKGDQ, TUESDAY BEPTEM13E U 29, 1891.
THE CHILIAN JUNTA
Seems Very Likely to Run Up
Against Uncle Sam.
oimrous coucn. at Washington.
Taa President, Secretary Trcjr and State
Department Officials in Conference
ported Insulting Treatment of Min
ister Egan the Subject of Discussion
Seme Sensational Keporta Current in
Which the Shriek or the Shell May
Be Beard An Order ent to Com
Washington, Sept. 9. The president
was closeted yesterday for a couple of
hoars with officials of the state and nary
departments, and it was immediately sur
mised that the reason of the conference
was the alleged arrest of Americans in
Chili, and it was said that the relations
of Uncle Sam with the.jnnta were serious
ly strained. Afrer the cynference none of
those present would say what was talked
about or decided upon. Secretary Tracy
would only say that the situation was not
alarming and and the department would
end no more ships to Chili. Others who
were at the conference are quite as reti
cent as Secretary Tracy about it. One of
these admitted, however, that there was
nothing said or done at the meeting that
oould not be given to the public without
Injury to diplomatic aspects of the mat
ter. Not Credited by Dr. Moult.
Dr. Moutt, the representative of the
Chilian government here, yesterday re
ceived a dispatch from his government.
There was no allusion whatever to the re
ported arrest of Americans or of any
action intended to harass Minister Egan.
Dr. Montr, without knowing whether any
Ameiicans Lave been arrested, discredits
any and all reports to the effect that his
government has treated or will treat men
of any nationality in Santiago harshly or
Chilians Down on Egan.
Rightfully or otherwise, the junta peo
ple in Chili are down on Minister Kn,
and reports are that they have surrounded
the American legation at Santiago with a
cordon of police, and threaten to arivst all
who try to visit the minister. It is re
ported that during the conference yester
day morning Assistant Secretary Whar
ton informed tie president that instruc
tions had been sent to Minister Kgan on
Saturday, but that no reply hail bt-en re
ceived from him. Up to 6 o'clock last
evening no word had come from Khq. It
is also said that the government will, as a
result of yesterday's council, support Min
ister Eiian to any extremity in tbe protec
tion and assertion of his rights as Amer
ican minister, irrespective of the griev
ances which the junta government has
An Indignity To Be Resented.
To surround a foreign legation with a
cordon of police officers, and to threaten
to arrest those who attempt to pas upon
public or private business is an indignity
which co self-respecting government can
anbmit to in silence. In this case it is
pretty certain that arrests of American
citizens were actually made while they
were attempting to call upon their minis
ter. Tbe president said at the conference
that the first duty of this government was
to assert its rights and the rights of the
minister, leaving tbe question of Minister
Egan's alleged wrong-doing to be inves
tigated afterward. If Egan has given asy
lum improperly to the enemies of the gov
ernment, or has been guilty of offensive
partisanship in any other way, the Chilian
authorities have tbeir redress in the usual
Talk of a Bombardment.
The man who knows it all says that
orders have been sent to Commander
Schley, of the Baltimore, to assist in
every way in his power the efforts of
Minister Egan to secure the rights per
taining to his position. A rumor was cir
culated that Commander Schley had been
instructed to bocibard Santiago if be
could reach the city, and if not to level
his guns at Valparaiso, but a gentleman
who attended theconference at the White
House says this is not true; that the presi
dent and the other members of the con
ference thought the Chilians would soou
come to their senses, and after their ani
mosity to Egan had cooled down a bit
they would apologize for their insult to
tbe United States.
THE IRISH FACTION FIGHT.
Aa Attack on the lomiu Convention at
Chicago, Sept. 29. The confederated
Irish societies of Chicago have issued an
address warning the Irish and the Amer
ican people against tbe promoters of the
coming convention of the Irish National
league. Tbe objects of tbe promoters, the
address says, are as dishonest as their
methods. Tbe gathering represents noth
ing but the desperate needs of tbe gang
of unscrupulous, political tricksters, its
chief aim being to force Alexander Sulli
van back into prominence and to place
his confederate, Michael Davitt, at the
head of tbe movement in Ireland as a re
compense "for his coming to the rescue of
the murderers of Dr. Cronin by a base
and cowardly attack on the character of
the murdered mui;"
. That Sigrl Tncident Explained.
Lonuo.n, Sept. 29. The official report to

of the harbor and connected up

usual mining operations were executed.

Kew York, Sept. 29. Henry Walters, a
youag. married man of East Orange, is
languishing in a cell at the station house,

v hich looked familiar. She asked Miss
Beck the time, and the young woman dis
p ayed a gold watch which also was rec
ognized by Mrs. Walters as hers.
Compared Notes and Conspired.
Then the two women compared notes.
Miss Beck said that when she first made
the acquaintance of Walters h repre
sented himself as a single man, and told
her that she was tbe ouly woman be had
ever loved. She believed him, and was
shocked when she learned that he was a
base deceiver. Mrs. Walters told Miss
Beck that the watch and chain which Miss
Beck wore belonged to herself, and that
her hu&band had taken them without her
knowledge. Miss Beck, with burning
chteks aud with- tears in her eyes, said
Walters ought to be punished. Mrs. Wnl
ter agreed, and the two women finally
concocted a plan.
Nipped Him in the Bud.
Walters had proposed to Miss Beck to
eloj with him, and it was decided to
per:nit him to carry out his proposition.
So when Walters wanted to elope to Niag
ara Falls Miss Beck was ready. Wal
ters arranged the elopement for Saturday
night, and Miss Beck met him iu Newark.
The police had been notified, and as soon
as Walters appeared with a gripsack to
greet Miss Beck he was arrested. Miss
Beet then denounced him, and when
Waiters arrived at the Orange police sta
tion he found his wife ready and anxious
to U Ik to him. He was locked up. and
will have to give $jU0 bail to get out pend
ing his trial.

Railway Deal That Means Much
MVEESION OF THE GRAIN TEAFFIO.
A Combination with Huntington Which
Is Intended to Make New Orleans a
Rival of the Windy City All the
Southwestern Business to Go the
Southern Route The Union Pacific
Succeeds with Its Refunding Scheme
New York, Sept. 29. The Commercial
Advertiser says: In view of the unanimity
with which Gould's motives in the Mis
souri Pacific aud Union Pacific affairs
have been judged, it is highly probable
that a view throwing an entirely new
light on the matter would meet with a re
luctant reception. Mevertheless, a view
of this sort wis encountered by a repre
sentative of The Commercial Advertiser,
and as the gentleman who expVessed it is
a prominent figure in Wall street circles
and has made somewhat of a study of tbe
great financier's methods, it may be said
to carrv unusual weight.
A Ileal Inimical to Chicago.
The person referred to said: "Gouia and
Huntington have a great railway deal in
view. The competitors in grain traffic
now of the southwestern system, which
includes the Missouri Pacific, Uuion Pa
cific. Southern Pacific, and Texas Pacific
and branch lines, are the Atchison, Ro.k
Island, Chicago and Alton, Chicago, Bur
lington aud Quincy, Northwestern, St.
Paul and branch liues. If by beiug ab'e
to make the connection referred to by Mr.
Gould iu Saturday's inspired interview,
the Missouri Pacific aud Central Pacific
systems shnll be enabled to lay down
grain at New Orleans for the same price
that the other granger roads do in Chi
cago, it stands to reason that the grain
traffic of pretty much tbe eutire south
west will be diverted to the southwestern
system, as tidewater is reached at New
Orleans, whereas it is 1,000 miles from
How Huntington Can Assist
'Ocean freights, too, are proverbial'y
lower from New Orleans than New York.
Huntington can add to the great grain
carrying trade of the southwest the
transcontinental traffic from California
over the Southern Pacific. The connec
tion at Memphis referred to by Mr.
Gould would bring the southwestern sys
tem in close relations with the K'chmond
Terminal, which owes (9. 000.000 floating
debt, and if Mr. Gould sow fit to go to its
assistance the southwestern system tuinht
extend its control to this company, th.ts
including all the railroads in the southern
belt of the country except the Louisville
FUNDED ITS FLOATING DE3T.
I nion Pacific.
New York. Sept. 29. The Union Pa

the plan for funding the floating debt op
erative. Over (6.000,000 in subscriptions
were received by Drexel, Morgan & Co. to
the (5.500,000 of notes offered, and the al
lotments have been made. This is the
final settlement of the much talked t t
floating debt, and the whole financial
community now breathes easier
Under the provisions of the plan tbe
Union Pacific binds itself to incur no
further obligations without tbe consent
of the creditors' committee. The codt
tract lasts during the life of tbe three
year notes, but it is thought that many
if not all of the notes will be retired at
maturity. The notes were subscribed for
