Th. Officials Will Not Talk.
Secretary Blaine will not talk of the
Chilii.n complication. He will say noth
ing concerning the conference at the exec
utive mansion yesterday; nor will he give
a hint as to the probable policy of this
government in the matter. Secretary
Tracy, who also attended the White
House- conference, is equally reticent.
There is not any great expression of opin
ion here as to the probable outcome of the
affair, and there ia almost an entire ab
sence of expression concerning the an
swer this couotry will make.
. The Italian Case Referred To.
The letter of Secretary Blaine, in an
swer t3 the demands of the Italian gov
ernment in the New Orleans affair, has
been referred to frequently as similar in
tone a id expression to the answer of the
Chiliaa premier: but Blaine's letter to
Rudini, while firm was not threatening,
hornet! iing the reply of the Chilian govern
ment is construed to be by many persons,
the lat Benteuce only being de.-med of a
;oncil)4tory -nature. Xo news could be ob

ters in this city in regard to the present
sitnati of affairs between that country
and th 3 United States. II any.hing from
Valparaiso or Santiago had been received
there it; was not made public-
50ME ALLEGED CHILIAN GRIEVANCES
Asxert ons of Cnfriendlinest Shown by the
I'nited States to Chili.
The t pirit which has marked the course
of the Chilians toward this government
might be easily accounted for if all the
;harge which are brought by them
igatnst this country were true. These
indictments run as far back as the war
bet wee a Chili and Peru. It will be re
membered that when that war ended with
victory for Chili the latter nation de
manded, first a war indemnity in money,
tod wten this was not forthcoming pro--eeded
to take a large slice of Peruvian
territoty. At this point, the Chilians
complain, the United States government
Interfeied and sent Messrs. W. H. Tres
cot and Walker Blaine to South America
in Peru's behalf. These gentlemen re
turned without accomplishing any defi
nite results, but their visit is again em
phasize 1 by the Chilians as an unfriend
ly act o a the part of the United States.
Tlie Baltimore's Search Light.
Comi ig down to more recent times the
Chillians have a number of charges to
make against the officers and men of the
Baltimore, which, although denied, have
do doul t been maliciously circulated in
Chili for the purpose of fanning the hos
tility to the United States. The first of
these is the statement that when the Con
gressiot alist navy was searching for tor
pedoes in the harbor of Valparaiso at night
the electric search-light of the Baltimore
was tuned upon their work, and thus
they we-e frustrated in their plans. This
is posit velydenied by this government.
Coutplaint Against Admiral Brown.
Anotler charge is that when the insur
gent an jy was landing on thecoast just
previous to the battle which resulted m
the ovtrthrow of Balmaceda, Admiral
Brown t teamed the San Francisco down
to The r lace of landing and made a count
ot the nsurgent forces, both as U the
number of men and guns. It is alleged
HOOK ISLAM., H!IDAY,iOCTOBElt 30,-1891.
(nat ne returned to Valparaiso and tele
graphed this information to Balmaceda,
enabling the latter to hurry his army to
the point wbeee the iusnrgents had
secretly landed, and temporarily, al
though not finally, embarrassed the
enemy. The ground for this charge ii
said to be the publication of this informa
tion in the papers in Santiago on th
mor ning after the landing, and quoting
Admiral Brown as the authority.
Can Prove the Charge False.
It is said by this government in reply
to this charge that it can be proven that
Admiral Brown never communicated
with Balmaceda. It is acknowledged that
the admiral did sail down the coast and
watch the landing of the insurgent army
but at the same time it is known from
private letters written to his family in
Indiana that Admiral Brown's personal
sympathies were with the insurgents, and
he predicted in his correspondence theif
Other Grounds of Complaint.
Another ground of complaint, in the
eyes of the Chilians, - amounts, in their
estimation, to a virtual blockade of ail
the insurgent ports along the Chilian
coast. It is alleged that a bulletin was
displayed in the chamber of commerce in
Philadelphia warning all merchant vessels
that it was dangerous to enter the port of
Iquique, the insurgent capital, and that
by reason of this bulletin American ships
laden with the provisions so much needed
by the insurgents remained away. As
the document has never been laid before
this government its existence is suspected
to be a myth.
The Trouble with the Itata.
There is only one more allegation which
the Chilians put forth which is deserving
of attention, although it does not exhaust
their list. This relates to the Itata. The
Itata is a private vessel and the law dis
tinctly states that all ships held for viola
tion of the neutrality laws shall be held
under a bond double their value.' The
Itata is confessedly worth 300,000, but
the United States accepted an appraise
ment of only 60.000, in order that the
bond might be secured without difficulty.
All arrangements made with the owners
of the vessel by the United States have
been acceded to by the former with pleas
ure, but the Chilians on the other hand
have shown no disposition to accept any
' VIEWS OF EX-MINISTER OSBORNE.
The Chilians, Cultivate the Virtue of
Topee. A, Kan., Oct. 80. Ex-Governor
Thomas A. Osborne, minister to Chili un
der President Hayes, is very guarded in
his - remarks concerning the present
strained diplomatic relations between this
government and the Chilians. Governor
Oi borne has received requests from numer
ous sources fcr an expression of his views,
but has declined because an expression
from him might embarrass the adminis
tration at this time. He has probably re-'
ceived as much reliable information con-'
earning the difficulties which now beset
Minister Egan and the president as any
man in the country, and entertains very
They Treasure Malice.
"Von may say," said he to a reporter,
"that I regard the strained relations as
very nnfortnnate at this time. ' The Chil
ians are a very sensitive people and treas-
ETi rLiar.cs. u it snouta oecome necessary
for the United States government to
humiliate them it would require a century
to restore the amicable relations which
existed prior to the Balmaceda revolution.
About the close of the civil war Chili and
Peru were in a difficulty and Spain sent a
fleet which bombarded Valparaiso. The
cannon balls are yet imbedded in the cus
tom house and the Chilian government
will not allow them to be removed. The
youth of the country all know the story,
and the cannon halls serve as a constant
reminder that their hatred towards the
Spanish government must not be suf
fered to decrease."
ENGLISHMEN IN A FERMENT.
The Traders Believe a Fight Inevitable
and Bewail the Fact.
Losnox, Oct. 3a The greatest ferment
exists iu the South American trade over
the news from South America. The gen
eral impression is that Chili will fight,
and that the United States is now in a
position where it must fight or retreat
with dishonor. Xo person of responsibil
ity hns yet been found who doubts that
America will come out foremost in the
end. but the general expression is that
Chili will have for the present a decided
advantage. The sentiment of the mer
cantile houses trading with Chili is
strongly against war.
Good Beason for Apprehension.
The nitrate interests are also opposed to
it on the ground that war might result,
the United States, through nn arrange
ment with Peru, getting control of the
nitrate deposits: also that a successful war
would have the effect of raising American
prestige in South America to the detri
ment of England. The change of feeling
since Wednesday is tnost significant. Then
the idea of war was pooh-poohed. Xow
the South American opinion in London is
exactly the reverse, and war is regarded
as almost inevitable.
Repudiated by the Senator.
Oshkosh, Wis., Oct. 30. Senator Saw
yer absolutely denies that he made any
attempt to employ ex-Congressman La
Follette to use his influence with Judge
Sieliecker in the hope that the latter
might be induced to decide favorably for
the defendants in the state treasury case.
Seuator Sawyer made this denial yester
day morning in the office of Attorney C.
W. Felker, but beyond the bare statement
that Mr. LaFollette's allegations were un
true, he refused to say a word.
