Washington, Oct. 81. The Chiliea
trouble was the man topic of discussion
about tbe state and nary department
yesterday, and tbe opinion almost gener
ally expressed there was that a demon
stration of force will be made at once. A
rumor that inel considerable credence
was to the effect that instructions hav
been sent to all available vessels to hold
themselves in readiness for sailing orders.
Naval authorities assert that our naval
'force is strong enough to impress Chili with
a sense of tbe danger that lies in the main
tenance of her defiant attitude, this coun
try having tbe disadvantage, however,
of not possessing convenient coaling sta
tions. , Montt Bear from His Government.
Don Pedro Montt, the Chilian minister,
deceived a telegram during the day from
Santiago to the effect that an inquiry was
Instituted immediately after the riot, and
Is being continued with all diligence; that
eleven Chilians and thirty Americans
were arrested on the day of the riot, aid
that the emeute wasquelled by the regular
soldiers, special guard, and police. Tbe
men fought with knives, stones, and
very weapon they could get hold of. The
tone ef the reply printed in these dis
patches yesterday is tersely summed up
by a member of the cabinet to this effect:
"It simply means that we may go to the
devil." Whether the assurance contained
in the dispatche to Montr, summarised
above,, will lessen the tension is something
thai cannot be found out from the govern
ment officials here.
Views of Cullom and Edmonds.
Very few persons of prominence who
were asked for their opinion about tbe pres
ent aspect of aff.iirs would allow their
names to be used. Senator Edmunds and
Senator Cullom were among the excep
tions. The former had an interview with
Secretary Tracy yesterday morning. He
told a reporter that he was sure this gov
ernment would be firm and just, and
would do the right tiding in the right
way. He said he hoped tbe Chilians
would be reasonable enough and sensible
enough to act properly. Senator Cnllom
said that the situation looked ugly and be
thought the United States would be
obliged to teach Chili a lesson. If tbe
Chilians did not change their tactics at
once the only thing for this country to do
was to send oar warships down there
"and give them tbe mischief."
The Chilian Will Show Fight.
Nearly all the naval officers who have
served in Chilian waters believe that
Chili would rather engage in hostilities
with the United States than offer tbe
semblance of an apology. It is the Chil
ian nature, they say, to have things their
own way or fight, and these officers de
clare their belief that nnlesa the United
States Jbacfcs down actual hostilities can
Dot be avoided. . A diplomatist here said
that he could not see how actual hostili
ties could be avoided, and in this event no
great naval engagement in Chilian waters
need be looked for. The Chilians, he
said, sought loud-sounding glory and
tkey would send one or two of their best
ships to the Pacific coast. The Chilian
bravado was Insane and before Chilian ar
rogance could be laid in the dust infinite
damage would be done to American
Will Walt a "Seasonable Time."
As nearly as could be ascertained last
night this government proposes to wait a
'reasonable time" for Chili to conclude
tbe inquiry which is now said to be un
der way. - This "reasonable time" will not
be a question of months, but of days. If
no report ' is soon received from tbe
Chilian government, and there is reason
to believe that it is intentionally delayed,
this government will again make a re
quest for an explanation, and if no reply
is forthcoming steps may be taken toward
a suspension of amicable relations. It is
expected, However, ttiat the report will be
promptly made, its purport is already
anticipated. No one in government cir
cles in Washington expects that tbe Chil
ians in their present frame of mind will
acknowledge that they are in the wrong.
Mo Naval Orders Tet Issned.
Any amount of testimony will proba
bly be presented to show that the sailors
were murdered in a street row, in which
both tbe Chilians and the Americans were
equally to blame. Tte telegram made
public by Senor Montt, the Chilian repre
sentative, yesterday inaicates ttat this
will be the liue of tbe Cuiiian defend.
Commodore Ramsay, in charge of the
navigation bureau, without whose
knowledge not a naval ship moves, said
that m lar as he knew there had not been
a single order issued bearing on tbe Chil
ian situation during tbe past week.
THE FEELING AT SANTIAGO.
Bltteraess Againut Americans Growing
More Intenee &eiious eitaation.
Saxtiaoo, Ctiili, Oct. SL The contro
versy between tbe United States and tie
government here is just now the all-absorbing
topic. Instead of tbe feeling of
bitterness and resentment on tbe part of
tbe Chilians bsving become alleviated by
the sobering influence of many hours' re
flection the sentiment toward persons and
things American has become intensified
and American residents and officials are
apprehensive of further trouble. United
States Minister Egan, Consul McCreery,
and Captain Schley were in consultation
moat of the lime yesterday. Tbe re
sult of their deliberations, of course, can
not be given, but they are unanimous in
tbe opinion that the reply of the junta to
tbe demands of tbe United States was de
cidedly insulting, to say the least.
American ateaidenta Iodignant.
American residents are very indignant
at the: arrogance of the Chilian junta.
T beware quietly making preparations in
case of further trouble which they one
and all daily expect to occur) Tbe senti
ment expressed by the officers and crew
of tbe Uuited States steamship Baltimore
is that their commander should take ex
treme measures to enforce proper treat
ment for, such' members of the vessel's
crew as may, from ntcessity, be forced to
?o ashore. The ideals that when market -og,
wateng, and the 'ecsnry duties
make such visits Imperative, they will be
protected at all hasards.
Another Explanation Needed.
A new feature of the Valparaiso inci
dent which needs explanation was devel
oped yesterday. The officials in Valpa
raiso having charge of the investigation
of the assault on the American blue jack
ets compelled the United States seamen,
who were locked up at the time, to sign a
statement written in Spanish exonerat
ing the .police from all responsibility as to
their arrest. Tbe situation is one of in
creasing uneasiness, and further trouble
m.iy occur at any moment.
IS EGAN TO BE RECALLED?
A New York Paper Says He Will Be After
New York, Oct. 81. The Evening Post
lays: Patrick Ean is to be recalled us
minister to. Chili immeditely after the
elections, not ou accouut of the Baltimore
episode, but on demand of the Chilian
government, according to the statements
of a geutlemau in . this city who U in con
stant coS uiunication with Valparaiso,
Santiago, Lima and other South Amer
ican ports in Chili aud Peru. The circum
stances are related as follow:
Immediately upon the accession to power of
the Junta de gobierno. after the downfall of
Halniaceda. that body cabled to Senor Pedro
Montt in Washington directing him to assume
charge of the Chilian legation at Washington
as soon as the government of the Congression
al party in Chili should be recognized ry the
Insisted on Formal Credentials.
Neither this department nor the Chilian lega
tion of Baimacedaat Washington would recog
nize the cable credentials of tenor Montt. but
told him that when duly written instructions
were received from Chin the legation would
then receive him (Montt) as Chili's representa
tive in tbe United States. Tbe fact of Montt's
appointment as minister at Washington was
also made known to Minister Kgan in r-antiugo
with the reqrest that the latter inform the de
partment of state by cable of Montt s status in
the United states, as Montt bad cabled his
government that he would be obliged to await
uis autographic credentials. It is not known
I bat Egan ever cabled this to Washington, so
I hat Montt had to await the receipt of bis for
mal credentials as minister from Chili upon
tueir arrival by the steamer Colon ia I'anama
a few days ago, and he lost no time in present
ing them to tue state department on Wednes
Chili's Request Also Shrived.
At the same time that Senor Montt was
Ci bled to regarding his appointment as minis
ter, he received instructions through the same
ci annel to demand in Chili's name the recall
of Minister Ean as a persona non grata to the
present Chilian authorities. This request of
CI ili was also shelved to await the arriva. of
M ontt's credentials, audit is believed in Chili,
as well as in Washington, that Egan knew the
Chilian governnieut did not want him and
used the slow process of the mail to inform
the state department of Montt's appointment
as minister. It is now stated upon the same
authority that Chili has again demanded
bgiin's recall, and that the state department
wj rtply to the Chilian government, after me
elet tions have taken place, according Chili's
CANNOT BE CONFIRMED.
The tteport of Egan's Intended Recall
Chili a Bluffer.
Washington, Oct. 3L No information
C3ul 1 be obtained here last night concern
ing the report that Minister Egan has
been recalled from bis post in Cbili by
tbe United States government. Secretary
Blaine was not in during tbe early part
of the night and when he returned to his
house he retired for the night. He stated,
however, earlier in the evening that
nothing concerning Chilian affairs would
be mitde public by the state department
last night. A broad smile overspread tbe
faces of the state department officials yes
terday, after reading in the newspapers
1 arid statements as to our naval strength
as con pared to that of Chili and predic
tions as to what war with Cbili would
mean. Few if any of them believe that
there U a remote probability of war with
Has No Tnong-ht of Figqiing.
An official of the state department who
was recently at tbe seat of government of
Chili, and is familiar with Chilian charac
Chili i ever had a fight with a foreign power
and never will have one. It has had internal
war and combats with the little republics about
It, but it knows better than to fight such a peo
ple as those of this country. They are bluffing
us. It is their policy and their nature. They
invariab y abruptly refuse an overture from
a foreign couutry, and talk war and show an
ngly disiositlon when anything of an interna
tional nai ore is provoked, while at tbe same
time the) mean to acquiesce. The junta haa
at no time thought of fighting us or refusing
what we have demanded in regard to tbe
trouble at Valparaiso. It wants to make us
believe thtt it would fight merely to impress
its neighbirs that it is ugly and is prepared to
fight if Lecessary. It couldn't withstand a
(ingle bombardment from our man-of-war,
Baltimore, now in the harbor at the seat of
trouble. 1 1 has neither the financial n r moral
resources to make or maintain war with any
body. Valparaiso Owned by Foreigners.
Another opinion to the same effect is as
Chili's only vulnerable point is Valparaiso.
A casual si udy of the interests which go to
make up Valparaiso will convince any one
that a war is altogether improbable and could
not be permitted even if tbe United States
government were disponed to go to war. Nine
tenths of t he capital in the city of Valparaiso
Is owned by foreigners, of whom tbe German
and English predominate. Ten years ago it
was estimated in an official way that the
British interests in Valparaiso were sevea
tenths of the entire capital. Since that time
there has bet t. a large influx of German capi
tal, and it is probable that the relative
strength of the British possessions haa been
decreased, bt t they are still large enough and
s imciently powerful to control or influence
t'je Chilian government.
England Will Touch the Rntton.
When the pi-oper time arrives to impress upon
Chili that the demand for reparation made by
tbe United S ates is imperative the British
commercial lr tereets in Valparaiso will merely
touch the bvtton and Chili will make the
amende honor vble. A bombardment of Val
paraiso, which would be the sum total and in
evitable result of a war between the United
Mates aud Chii, would result in the destruction
of a large am rant of British propertr, and,
while the Chil.ans would iiee to tLe interior
and remove th mselves from the scene of car
nage, British and Herman interests would l
the only ones U at would suffer.

The liberators came from every direc--tion
and assembled in force, marching on
the stockade. Their first act was to bl w
