ly Critical Activity at Brooklyn Navy
Vard New. from Washington.
Santiago, Chill, Oct. 29 This city is in
a fever of excitement, caused by report
that the Chilian legation at Washington
had been attacked. The government yes
terday replied to United States Minister
Euan's deirand for reparation for the re-
c?nt attack upon the United States steam
ship Baltimore's crew. It is a refusal to
accept responsibility for the affair. Min
ister Egan has notified the state depart
ment at Washington, and Inst night was
consulting with Consul McCreery and
Captain Schley. Decisive action is looked
for very quickly. The authorities of Val
paraiso have gone so far as to refuse to
guarantee the safety of market boats
oming to the city from the United States
wtrsbip Baltimore, or the safety ot offi
cers of that vessel coming ashore at night.
Minister Egan, it is said, has notified his
government that the crew of the Balti
more are practically boycotted, and no
American sailors are permitted to land at
this port. It is understood that Minister
Egan expressed much surprise at the
very strong language in which the Chilian
government's reply is couched.
THE WASHINGTON END.
A Correspontlet Who Doesn't Seem. to
Have Heard from Santiago.
Washington", Oct. 29. A Chicago cor
respondent yesterday telegraphed his pa
per as follows: "The wind has been
taken out of the Chilian affair by an offer
of the rebellious little republic to make
amends to the fullest limits of its ability.
Chili has offered to apologize, give proper
financial reparation to our injured sailors
and punish the soldiers, sailors and
police iu its service who fired upon our
Ucfcuseless men in the streets of nl
paraiso. This fs all we have asked, all
taat could, be expected and it may oe said
truthfully that the "crisis" which we were
represented as passing through is in the
past. Chili has named its diplomatic
representative to this country. He i
here in the person of Senor Montt and ne
gotiations are today making for the full
est reparation on Chili's part.
Alleged Talk or Blaine and Montt.
Don Pedro Montt had a talk with Sec
retary Blaine yesterday, and the wiseacres
say that Montt expressed mortification at
the recent occurrence at Valparaiso. He
felt authorized to say that if the facts
concerning the attack were as stated Chili
would disavow the acts of those who com
mitted the assault upon the American
sailors. Not an official in Chili, be said,
could have sympathized with the attack
upon unarmed American sailors, and he
hoped soon to bring to Mr. Blaine a dis
patch from his government which would
prove entirely satisfactory.
The Fresh Mr. Foster.
Mr. Julio Foster, who says himself that
be has no official standing, is said to bave
made a decidedly nervy break. It is stated
that be attempted to make himself a
member of the conference. From all that ,
cau be learned this attempt was prompt
ly resented and foiled by Secretary Blaine,
who declined with consideral emphasis to
recognize Mr. Foster or to tolerate his
presence; and the latter retreated with
more celerity than dignity. He did not
even halt to recognise the newspaper men
who had gathered in the corridor.
Blaine on the "Doc Trot."
"When James G. Blaine left the White
House at 11 o'clock yesterday morning,
after a consultation with the president on
t le Chili affair, which he says is being
closed up satisfactorily to the govern
ment, he surprised a crowd of visitors
who stood on the portico by raising his
beaver saying, "Good morning," and run
ning down the steps on the west side,
and starting off toward the department of
state in a "dog trot," as one who saw him
put it. The secretary pulled up the col
lar of his chinchilla overcoat to sbut out
the sharp October air, and smiled as he
glanced behind him and found a dozen or
more eyes eagerly gazing fit the exhibi
tion of the 'return of physical vigor.' "
VIEWS OF A NEW YORK MAN.
Chilian Kepresentatlve. at the Capital
New Yokk, Oct. 20. If the feeling of the
Chilian representatives in this city is a
reflex of thesentimenteutertaitied by their
countrymen against the United States,
then the outrage committed at Valparaiso
can be understood, telegraphs a Washing
ton correspondent to his paper. While
diplomacy places the seal of secrecy upon
tbeir official lips, in ordinary conversation
tbe bitter denunciations of our govern
ment crop out. I visited the legation to
ascertain if the visit of Senor Montt to
the state department was indicative of a
more cordial feeling between- the two
countries and the beginning of the end of
the present bad feeling.
A Decidedly Hostile Spirit.
I was Informed that as this government
was apparently running' things to suit
itself. I would have to look to the state
department for information. The spirit
that predominates at the Chilian legation
is not one .calculated to bring about the
entente cordiale with Chili. According
to the idea as expressed by Mr. Julio Fos
ter, the United States hta been playing
the part of a tyranU'.It is Charged by him
that she hta violated, the principles of
neutrality aver since Secretary Foster
ordered the Itata to be held at tbe port of
San Diego. Tbe legation has on file some
fifteen charges .against this government.
