WASHIXGTOJf, Oct. 87. An unofficial
dispatch from Santiago, Chill, says:
Acting on instructions from Washington
Minister Egan yesterday, after making a brief
but pointed summary of all the facta involved
In Ihe recent trouble, formally demanded rep
aration from the government of Chili. Mr
Egan expressed in distinct terms the feeling
of great indignation which the state depart
ment at aantngton feels over the whole af
fair, and informed the junta that this is no in.
formal suggestion; that his government ex
pects some kind of satisfaction for the assault
npon the Baltimore's crew, and demands as
I nmediate explanation of the whole affair
and reparation for the Injuries inflicted. The
apinion prevails among foreign ministers that
the juuta will immediately make the repara
tion demanded. The sympathy of the foreign
residents is entirely with Captain Schley, and
Minister Egan's action gives general satisf action.
Has Expressed No Regret.
Mr. Egan referred especially to the brutal
condurt of the police at Valparaiso, in Joining
with the mob in the latters' attack upon the
ruutlmore s seamen and in drawing their bay
onets and using them against the unarmed
Americans. Mr. Egan also particularly called
attention to the additional brutality of the
police of Valparaiso in nsing horses to drag the
Americans to prison. Chilians try to smooth
over the assault npon and imprisonment of
the American sailors by classing it as a simple
street row. Up to the present time the junta
has expressed no regret for the attack made on
the American sailors.
Another View of the Affair.
A state department official in this city
is alleged to have made the following
remark anent the affair:
The situation has never been serious. There
was a saloon Quarrel down there in which
some of our sailors appear to have got the
worst of it, and that is all the matter. There
has never been the slightest reason to doubt
that the Chilian government would investigate
the emeute and take the proper action after
ascertaining the facts. Both Captain Schley
and Minister Egan have seized this incident
and made it a pretext for embittering our
government against the Chilians by coloring
their reports to show that the authorities
winked at the assault and were not disposed to
punish the offenders.
THINKS UNCLE SAM TOO HASTY.
A CItixen of Chili Gives His Views on the
WASHINGTON, Oct. 27. A correspondent
called at the Chilian legation Sunday.
.Don Pedro Moutt, tbe junta representa
tive, was absent from the city, bat tbo
legation is kept open by Mr. Julie Foster,
who wanted it distinctly understood t'aat
he is not in any way officially connected
with the legation, bat simply a private
citizen of Chili. Referring to a telegram
stating that his son wonld hare charge of
the investigation into the recent attack
on American sailors at Valparaiso, he
said he expected as much, and added:
The Inquiry In Good Hands.
He is the criminal judge in Valparaiso, and a
more just, honorable and honest man does not
live. 1 never believed the report that the
Chilian government had taken no steps to fer
ret out the perpetrators of the outrage, if it
was an outrage. Such a report is an insult to
Chilian justice. I have believed all along that
the facts in the matter have been exaggerated.
The row evidently occurred In a saloon. Fights
between American sailors, and, in fact, those
of any foreign country, and the Chilians are
by no means infrequent.
Premature Talk of War.
The United States government has been a
tittle haty, 1 think. Has it any right to de
mand an indemnity before tbe crime is
proven? The trouble is that the Chilian people
are not understood in this country, a fact
which is due to meagre information contained
in the ordinary text-books about that country
and its inhabitants. The talk about war being
declared againt Chili if she does not make an
apology and give a money indemnity for the
lives lost is. I think, premature. These matter-
will all be straightened in the most hon
orable way to both countries.
A Little Patience Necessary.
There is no doubt that the United States
could come around the Hon. and eat us np,
but in doing so she would find the whole of
South America, with the exception of Brazil,
arrayed against her. What then would be
come of that great scheme of reciprocity that
seems to be the pet idea of this government?
But the Idea of a war over a common street
row is absurd. Have a little patience, and
give Chili a chance.
Secretary Blaine on Deck.
Washington, Oct. 2i. Secretary Blaine
went to work yesterday, and had inter
views with the president and heads of bis
department. Kef erring to tbe talk about
tbe presidency, a friend of the president is
reported to have said:
The president has not beard one word from
Mr. Blaine, directly or indirectly, on the sub
ject of the presidency. That is a topic which
both men carefully avoid, and I doubt if it will
come up between them for a long time to
Dome, and possibly never. I can tell yon, bow
aver, that the president does not think that
Mr. Blaine will want to be a candidate. His
health is not good enough for that. Mr. Blaine
told the president Saturday night he was feel
ing pretty well, but was not strong.

Done Pretty Well.
Butler, Mo., Oct. 27. Captain John
Scearce, who lives just across the line in
Cass county, in Everett township, has a
farm of 83) acres, and bad 100 in wheat
and the same area in corn. His wheat

been cut and is in shock . From the hun
dred acres of wheat land the captain re
ceived a total of 8,500 bushels of wheat,
which be sold at the railroad for 83 cents
a bushel, bringing him in $2,975. His
corn field has been estimated by those
who are good judges to have an average
yield of fifty bushels to the acre, which,
if the estimate holds out, will amount to
at least 5.500 bushels of grain, worth not
less that 50 cents per bushel, or a total of
(2,750, making a total of 5,725 for tbe 200
Pretty Good Interest on the Capital.

timates this year that his farm of 320
acres, which he considers worth (75 en

over and above all expenses, not less than
(10,030, which he thinks cannot be equaled
