SAX Fiuxcisco, Xov. 80. Admiral
Brown, of -the cruiser, San Francisco,
when approached, for un interview said:
We bring very little news. In fact, al
most everything .'that "happened ' as
known in the United States before it be
came public in" Chili. Correspondents of
American papers would telegraph news
to New. York and then It would be tele
graphed back to Valparaiso and appear in
the afternoon papers " The San Franoisco
arrived from Valparaiso yesterday morn
ins. Admiral Brown says she - behaved
splendidly all through her voyage. .,, . ;
A Case of Mistaken Identity.
' Admiral Brown was reminded of the
report that Balmacedn had succeeded in
gett ing on biard the San Franoisco and
Oh, it was simply a case of mistaken Identi
ty. They thought Colonel Vidaurre was the
president. The people of Valparaiso would
have been almost as well pleased to have
caught Vldanrre, however, as Ralmaceda. Hud
either of them got into the hands of their ene
mies their lives would not have been worth a
moment's purchase. They would have been
torn limb from limb. Colonel Vidaurre was
president ot the court that ordered, twenty
college boys shot. The boys had farmed an
, organization favoring the insurgents, and thoy
were found out. Many escaped, but about
twenty were shot. This aroused tie people to
a state of frenzy and made them $nrr to se
cure Vidaurre. ' He dresFOd himself upas a
sailor' and. pretendinic to be drunk, managed to
reach our ship. He was accompanied by one
uf his officers, and we landed both them hi
Defense of Minister Eean.
"Minister Eiran has h?en very severely criti
cised for the way he has conducted affairs in
Chili, aud it is said that Americans are tiior
nufthly disliked in consequence. Do yon know
anything about it?"
"Iknow this much: Minister Egan conducted
himself in tho most dignified manner on all
occasions. He saw that all respect was paid
to his country's flag, and acted on many trying
occasions with irreat tact and judgment. From
what I saw while la Chill Americans are as
well liked as any other nationality. I under
stand that both Minister Estan and myself
were criticised for not sending word of the
taking of Valparaiso, but the wires were down.
so bow oonld we send a dispatch f The only
rueseage which got through was sent by a
reporter named Wolf.
How Wolf Got His Telegram Oft
""He is a San Francisco man and a credit to
his profession. After the city was taken a
reign of terror ensued. Soldiers tore off their
uniforms and began Anna on friend aud foe.
Every house and shop was shnt np and th
operators fled from the telegraph office. Toward
evening a lull in the killing to k place and the
streets were partly cleared. Wolf slipped
ashore, interviewed a number of people,
hunted up a telegraph operator, and got his
dispatch away. A few moments after the dis
patehjiad been sent the firing broke ant again,
and the mob. cut the tclejrraph vires and
burned down a number of poles. ;
Bennett's Order to Wolf. "
. "It took me twenty-seven honrs with the aid
of the police to get the break repaired, and
then 1 sent on my communication to the gor
ment. The wires to Santiago were also cut,
so Minister Ewm could not telegrapb, cither.
The condition of affairs in Chill at that time
does not apiiear to have been very well endee
atood. For instance, James Gordon Bennett,
of the Kew York Herald, telegraphed Wolf
after the fall of Valparaiso as follows: Find
Balmnceda and interview him.' As about ft),
00 Chilians were at that moment seeking the
same man aid thirsting for his blood. Wolf
was in a dilemma. He did his best, however,
but of conr.se failed. Bulmaceda was at that
time in biding in Santiago.
Absurd Mories Telegraphed.
'Wo were at Iqnirrne when the Itata pat in,
and we seized ber according to instrut'tions.
Some of the stories telegrajilied to San Fran
cisco were very ridiculous. For instance, you
had Iquique bombarded several times.' The
nearest any man-of-war ever came to the
place was about five miles. We could hear
firing, but we never even saw the splash of one
of their missi es in the water. . After the. eap
ture ot Valparaiso and the final surrender, of
Bulmaceda's troops, many of his most promi
nent adherents took refngeon the San Fran
cisco, and wo afterward landed them at
Twenty Refugees on the Ship. -"We
had about twenty of tbemon board at
one time, among them being the wife, four
daughters and two sons of Admiral Viol, the
intendente of 'Valparaiso; Julio Hanados Es.
pinos, Balmaceda's minister of foreign affairs:
Kcnator Domingo Uodoi, minister ot Justice;
Isniael Peres Montt, minister of war; Manuel
lliaz; Daniel Balmaceda, brother ot the' presi
dent, and a number of others. Some of these
have found their way back to Chili, but others
will make Peru their home for some time to

While there is. of course, an truth in the
rumors that the United States has in view the
seizure of the Hawaiian -islands, 'there fct no
doubt the government Is in possession of some
information that, makes a concentration of
naval force there advisable at this time. Mys
terious silence is maintained at both the stale
and navy departments, and .every effort is
made to make it appear that nothing unusual
is going on. The Pensacola Is now at Honolulu
as a sort of permanent station ship, and the
cruiser Charleston, in pursuance of orders ca
bled from Washington, sailed from Yokohama
Wednesday for Honolulu. The Mohican, which
baa been hastily fitted for sea at the Mam inl

, New York, Nov. 20. At a meeting of
school commissioners Wednesday night
some startling disclosures were made.
They intimate ihat the city has for some
years been the victim of systematic fraud,,
from which she has suffered to the extent
of many thousand dollars. Still further
revelations aro promised, and it is not
unlikely that suits for the recovery of
some of the rioney and perhaps crimi

The loss has been occasioned by the
building of fcI 00J houses with, it is al

The health of the pupils and the stability
of the buildings have both been sacrificed,
it is claimedrth it inferior materials might
be used, to tbe. profit of the contractors
and the loss f the city. The "worst of it
is that an investigation shows the charges
