Line Too Long Established To Be
Vitiated at This Date Tin Inwardness
f That Fraud la Running the Ohio-Indiana
Line Recalling a Speck of War
' Between the Buokeje State and Mlchi-
ran A Widow Who Was Glad She
Lived la Ohio, After All Serious Qnes
tioa for Chicago.
: Chicago, Not. 7. The report that the
state of Illinois most cede twelve miles of
its territory to swell the possessions of
Hooslerdom la rV- ," all those who
have any claim to wo .informed opon
the question of state salvers as a huge
Joke. Lawyers laugh heartily w&sn asked
toe question. "Is the Indiana state line
ewelve miles ont of plnmbf" Tet there is
undoubtedly some reason for asking it,
tor the surveying party which baa been at
work locating the Ohio-Indiana boundary
is reported to have established the fact
that the line is wrong, and robs Ohio of
boat 1,200 sqn.ire miles of territory, in
cluding Fort Wayne, Richmond, and Un
ion City. '
Wbf the Line Was Run Wrona
The report of the surveyors, it is said,
taxes that an inquiry into the causes
which led to the incorrectness of the
boundary lines discloses the fact that at
the time Ohio was admitted into the
Union some post traders at Richmond and
Fort Wayne were doing a very profitable
trade with the Indians. If the line had
been rnn correctly it would have located
the trading posts in Ohio, and they wonld
have been mined, and this is why, it is
, claimed, the post traders bribed the sur
veyors to locate the line as they did. But
Captain Marshall, United States engineer
at this city, says that because the survey
ors ran the Ohio-Indiana line wrong is no
reason why the Illinois line should be
Thinks Chicago Meed Not Worry.
Fernando Jones, whose long connection
with the real estate title business has
made him a recognized authority on the'
question of land boundaries, ridiculed the
proposition that the Indiana line could
be moved so far west as to include Chi
cane The boundary line between Illinois and Indi
ana said he to a reporter has been surveyed
And established by a commission appointed for
that purpose by both states and the federal
government, and eranite blocliB hare been set
up at several points as monument of the
boundary. It is a settled principle of law that
boundary liues so established cannot be dis
turbed. The claim that the Ohio-Indiana line
was falsely placed by the surveyors, who were
bribed by the post-traders which is likely
enough does cot affect the Illinois-Indiana
line, which has been accepted by both parties,
and about which there is no charge or hint of
fraud. 1 think it will be safe for some time
yet to address letters to Chicago, Illinois.
SOME OLD-TIME REMINISCENCES.
The Ohio-SIicblgan Dispute and Settle
ment An Old Widow's Idea.
Mr. Jones got into a reminiscent mood
then and continued:
When Michigan was admitted as a state the
energetic young governor claimed that the
boundary line between his state and Ohio and
Indiana should run from the head of Luke
Michigan to the head of Lake Erie. This
would add considerable of the present states
of Indiana and Ohio to Michigan. On the map
you will tiotice the northern line of Ohio
"Jogs" a little from the line of Indiana and
Michigan. Ohio's governor "sasaed back" at
Michigan's governor. The militia of both
states were ordered to the disputed boundary
line. The boys' commissary was bread and
whisky mostly whisky and it looked like
Glad She Lived In Ohio.
A compromise was effected, by which ' the
present Michigan-Ohio and Michigan-Indiana
lines were fixed, and Michigan was given in
exchange for waiving her claims what is now
the upper peninsula of the state. It was at
that time a wild region, and the Michigan lead
ers took ;it Only after much persuasion. An old
widow who lived in the disputed strip said
after the settlement that she was "glad Ohio
got it, because I've alien heard there wus lota
o' ager in Michigan, and I don't want to lire in
no state where there is ager," In the present
ease I guess we dont want to live in Indiana.
A Bosaewbat Confusing Kosnlt. .
None of the United Stales officers be
lieved there was anrthioK in the claim on
XMinoiS. eitner am lonmy ourveyor
Foster, nor Colonel Burke, connected
with the city engineer's office. But not
withstanding the laughter it raises, the
question has its serious side, for if Ohio's
claims agai.ist Indiana be enforced, and
Indiana, on the same grounds, has cause
of action against Illinois if we should be
compelled t cede twelve miles of terri
tory to the llooiers the result would be
somewhat confusing. All of the
south side of Chicago would be
come subject to the laws of Indiana.
The imposition of Indiana state taxes, in
stead of these of Illinois, would entirely
upset the basis of value on real estate,
running into millions on millions of dol
lars. World's fair matters would be so
complicated that the project would have
to be ahandc ned, and the vista of trouble
and grief ahead is so awful that it cannot
be contempla:ed without danger to the
reason of the average citizen.

Mass-Meeting of Young Men Held and
Many Hery Speeches Made, the Object
Being; Attack on the Legation and Cap
ture of the Refugees on a Report That
They Were Plotting Assassination
Minister Eaan Acts 1'romptly A More
SANTIAGO. Chili, Nov. 7 Wild stories
have been iu circulation here for several
days to the effect thnt a conspiracy had
been formed among the refuaets in the
American 1. nation for the assassination
of General Canto, who successfully ltd
the Congiefcsionalists during the recent
insurrection. As a result of these reports
a mns-meetinjr of ciiiz.'ns was held in
the plaza yeslerdi.y to denounce the con
spiracy and to take whatever action was
The Young Men Get Together.
A bulletin was scattered throughout the
streets here yesterday calling a mass meet
ing of young men at the Plaza de Armas
last night. One object was to make an
attack upon the American legation for the
capture of the refugees. Minister Kgan
addressed a strong note to the junta hold
ing Chili responsible for any molestation.
The junta promptly dispatched a troop of
cavalry to the United Stales legation for
Conspiracy Stories Declared Falss.
At the plaza meeting many fiery
speeches were made and the United
States legation and its troop of so-called
conspirators were severely denounced. Be
fore the close of the meeting government
officials dis;ributed a circular among the
crowd, which announced that the conspir
acy stories were devoid of all foundation.
This had a soothing effeot upon the ex
cittd citizens, and they dispersed for tin ir
bodies without making any demonstra
tion whatever against the legation.
Schley Asked to Furnish Evidence.
There is a decidedly more friendly feel
ing here between the Americans and
Chilians. The intendente of Valparaiso
has addressed an official communication
to Captain Schley, of the United States
warship Baltimore, requesting that the
sailors attached to that ship who were
wounded in the recent riots be permitted
to appear before Judge Foster and give
their testimony. In case it is found im
possible or inexpedient to have the men
appear before the judge in person he is re
quested to furnish copies of their deposi
tions, which have already bsen taken by
Captain Schley. The Baltimore's
wounded men are rapidly recovering
from their hurts, A feeling of extreme
cordiality now seems to exist between the
Chilian authorities and the United States
nayal officers and there are frequent in
terchanges of courtesies.
BAFFLED A CONSPIRACY.
Fonseca None Too Soon in Assuming the
LoKDOJ', Nov.' 7. A dispatch from Ttfo
Janeiro says that President Fonseca as
sumed the supreme command barely in
time to prevent the fruition of a conspir
acy to restore the empire. This conspiracy
W known to have strong European support,-
add has been directed in Brasil by
adherents of the ex imperial family who
were leniently permitted to return to, or
remain in, the country. But for the presi
dent's action they would probably have
attempted a coup d'etat within a few
days. As it is, the Brazilian authorities
are roused to the utmost vigilance, and
both the army and navy are loyal to the
Count at'Ea Chief Conspirator, -'
. It is reported that Count d'Eu, son-in-law
of Dora Pedro, is at the bottom of the
present effort, to undermine Republican
government In Brazil. The count, whose
extraordinary arrogance and assumption
had. much to do with making the over
throw of Dom Pedro possible, has never
been content to rest under the depriva
tion of his wife's magnificent inheritance.
He is a thorough Bourbon, and very poni
pons.wirhout ability to sustain his claims
to respect; and anxious to figure in the
courts of royalty. - i
A Bispateh to secretary Blaine.
Waphisgton, Nov. 7 Secretary Blaine
received a short dispatch last evening
from Minister Conger at Kio Janeiro
Btating that the revolution in Brazil was
over and the army, navy and all other
branches of the government under the
control of President FbUseci. The dis
patch also states that some of the mem
bers of the Brazilian congress support
Fomeca in the course be has taken, and a
new congress will be elected.
The Exiled Emperor.
Pacts, Nov. 7. Dom Pedro, ex-emperor
of Brazil, is at the Hotel Bedford, in this
city. He refuses to see strangers. He is
not in good health. He says he is watch
ing events, but passive. "If the people of
Brazil," lie adds, ' should choose to recall
me, there is nothing to prevent my re
turuiug. My health is feeble, but my
heart is strong. I should bless God to be
able to die in Brazil and be laid bythe re
mains of my beloved empress."
Will of Thomas Itlythe.
San Francisco, Nov. 7. Further liti
gation over the will of the late Thomas
Blythe. involving the sum of about $4,

Over a year ago a decision was given in
favor of Florence Blythe. She will be
come of age on the lihh inst., and it is
said that on attaining her majority, she
will euter iuto negotiations with the
other contestants looking to au amicable
adjustment. The sum, it is asserted, that
Miss Blythe will offer the other con
testants is placed at 1.500.000.
