cially mmle to nscertaiu the conditioa o!
public fee. in? on (he subject of tbe diffi
culty with the United States thows tbit
the fiery sentiments which prevailed
against Americans has considerably
cooled down. The Chilian talk more ra
tionally as to the Amerivsn request for
reUres-i, atr.l there is a growing disposi
tion to see that justice is done to those
who assaulted the American sailors ani
k tiled two of them. Undoubted'.? the re
pcrt telegraphed from Xew York of the
formidable fleet said to be on its way to
Pacific waters has scnjetliitm to do with
the. change of sentiment in Valparaiso, it
least. The people here are loo anxious
for a bombardment.
Too Little British Sympathy.
The Ideajhat England would resist an
attempt at bombardment of Valparaiso
is dead, and now that it is evident that
the only British ally would be the corres
pondent of the London Times, to whuse
commands the American admiral wonld
probably not ptjy much attention, the
situation is different and Valparaiso bas
concluded not to coart a bombardment.
Consequently Americans are treated with
more respect, and there is no disposition
to do violence to American officers or
seamen. Captain Schley's conduct meets
with universal praise. He has been calm
and deliberate undei the most provoking
circumstances, and combined with dig
nity and firmness, this has won him the re
spect even of the lower and less intelli
gent, as well as the superior, class.
The Inquiry Into to the Riot.
The evidence in the preliminary inquiry
as to the attack On the sailors is said to be
complete. The Chilian method of exami
nation ispeculiar.and somewhat resembles
the French. The mngistrate bas each per
son accussed or under suspicion brousht
before bim separately.wituuut couusel.and
subjected to riiiid examination to which
there is no limit of relevancy. There Is
no doubt that in some instances physical
torture is applied, although the law for
bids it. DursngtherecentstruesrleneitLer
side hesitated to use tortures t f the most
horrible kind In order to extort confes
sion, and iu most caes the Chilian police
wink at such modes. There is no reason
to believe that any of the Chilians impli
cated in the riot have been tortured.
The American t'nnsnl Prevent.
On the contrary the general report is
that their treatment b.i been very mild,
and that Judge of Crimes Foster has not
been anxious to elicit fact that would
Ftrengthen the cause of the United State.
The deliberate or final examination was
going on yesterday before Judge Foster,
with the American coosnl present, and
the result is awaited with much interest.
It is said that the depositions exculpate
the Chilian police from auy share iu the
outrage. The police claim that they did not
use undue violence, aud only acted for
the preservation of the peace.
Mill Jninpin; on Balmaeedana.
Although nearly three months bave
elapsed since the downfall of President
Balmaceda not only t he Judicial and polit
ical authorities, but also the new congress
are occupied chiefly with the prosecution
of Balmaceda' adherents. Congress bas
ordered a suit to be instituted against
Kncina, one of the leading associates of
Balmaceda, for his share in the emission
of 145,000,000 of hank notes as currency
during the revolution. It is claimed that
the emission was illegal, and that the
money waa expended for many unlawful
purposes, besides the alleged treasonable
one. of carrying on war against the con
FONSECA'S NAVAL OPERATIONS.
Aa Attempt to Land Soldiers That Was
f t Frowned I'pon.
Montevideo, Not. 21. There is an in
definite report of an attempt on the part
of Fonseca's naval force to land a body of
troops near Barbosa, a small port in the
north of Rio Grande do Sul, not far dis
tant by land from Port d'Alegre. The
. water proved too shallow for the vessels
to come near the shore, and a hostile dis
play by an armed force of the junta de
ferred the Fonesca admiral from attempt
ing to land in small boats. '
I find the Royal Baking Powder far superior to the
others. It is pure, contains none but wholesome in
gredients, is of 23 per cent, greater strength.
F. X. ValadE, M. D.,
Public Analyst, Dominion of Canada.
The Royal Baking Powder is perfectly healthful, and
free from every deleterious substance ; purest in quality
and highest in strength of any baking powder of which
I have knowledge.
Wm. McMurtrie, E. M., Ph. D.,
Late Chief Chemist Agricultural Department.
The Royal Baking Powder is absolutely pure. It
is undoubtedly the purest and most reliable baking
powder offered to the public.
Henry A. Mott, Ph. D.,
Late Chemist for U. S. Government.
mne fople Not Friendly. f
Fonseca'i vessels did not throw any shells
or attempt to injure Barbosa, keeping up
apparenily a pretense of friendliness to
which t he eople on shore did not respond
in a similai spirit. The junta sent an addi
tional force Thursday to liio Grinde do
Sul, that pi tee bein the key to the sittia-
uuu iroill a ueieu;vr i;mii -i view.
Da Vousfca Full of Viht.
The provisional junta of Rio Grande do
Snl telegraphed to Minister Barao de I.u-
cenathat Fons?ca must resign as a prelim
inary for tin arrival at a friendly under
standing. Fonseca was very much of
fended by tl is message, and although suf
fering considerably aroused himself to
give fresh end vigorous orders for the
prosecution of the struggle. His physical
condition is, however, against him.
Til Dictator Prostrated.
A dispstel from Brazil says that Mar
shal da Foneca is seriously ill. It is
added that his principal ailment is ex
treme nervous prostration. Advices re
ceived from Santos confirm the report
that the port mentioned is inlecleil. with
yellow fever These advices add that all
the other Brazilian ports are similarly in
fected. Thfl Cruiser Hoton Heard From.

THE C2AR'3 MINISTER IN PARIS.
De Giers Pays a Vi.it t. the French Cap
ital Gos.ip Abjut the Kveut.
Pahis, Nov. 21. The Parisian press and
r.ubl'c insist cn treating the visit of M.
De Giers, the czar's trusted foreigu min
ister, as an evtnt of international impor
tance. Tbs interview between M. De
Giers and War M'jiister Freycinet yester
day was long. It. is known that during
the interview L Freycinet had brought to
gether a number of maps, evidently to be
submitted to M. De Giers. and it is sup
rosed they discussed thoroughly the mili
tary strength of France.
Well Fixud With War Maps.
The French war office has a perfect set
cf drawings of every German fortifica
tion, wit n the strength in armament of
the different forts, the military roads
and every feat'ire bearing upon military
movements in Germany. The war office
at St. Petersburg bas been forsome time
anxious to get copies of theja maps,
which are jeaiously guarded by the
French war ministry, aud it Is believed
that M. De Giers ha hai somethiui to
say upon the subjact.
'A Suggestive Incident.
An interesting incident occurred in the
street yesterday when De Giers was being
driven in the carriage of Baton de Mjhr
euheim. The coachman accidentally ran
down a workingaian, hurting him severe
ly. The man m tde a great outcry at first
and called ihe gendarmes, but when some
one sail it was she carriage of the Rus
sian ambassador the man smothered his
pnin and, takirg off his cap, shouted :
"Vive Kussie. Vive le czar." The crowd
joined in the cry Everywhere nothing is
talked of but the Russian alliance, coupled
with the expression tbat it will brioi
France nearer to Alsace.
COULDN'T BE SCARED OFF.
A Bridal Fair Who Were There to Be
Ctkthiana, Ky.. Nov.v U. At the
Givens-Martin marriage Wednesday
night a wax taper burned low and set
Ere to some decotations, making a huge
blaze over the. b idal party. The audi
ence was panic-ttriken at once and a
grand rush for'the door was made. The
bride's mother and many other ladies
fainted and the minister broke through
the wire windows and jumped, followed
by several ladies, and there was the wild
Bride and Groom Didn't Ban.
In the meanwhile the gentlemen attend
ants put out the fire with their coats. At
one time It looked as if the bouse would
burn and the fire engine was called out,
but the blaze was smothered. The- minis
ter, who had retimed, and the bridal
pair, who bad all this time stood as
statues, proceeded as if nothing had hap
pened. weaeraJ Hea Butler's Illness.

DECATUH. Ills , Nov. 21 At 6 o'clock
vesterday morniug Elijah Jett cut his
wife's throat with a razor and then com
mitted suicide by cutting bis own throat.
The trasedy Avas the bloodiest and most
horrifying that ever occurred in Decatur.
The couple occupied apartments in a
business block and the crime was con.
mitted just as the streets were filling up,
and the business of the day was commenc
ing. The couple wera married Oct. X. Mrs.
Jet: h.ii been divorced from her husband
about a year ago, and Jett had secured a
divorce from his former wife on Sept. 3J.
Were Eternalty Quarreling.
Their married life has beeu unhappy.
Sunday t.iht they quarreled and Mrs.
Jett left home, but on Monday returned,
aud tha couple again lived together.
Thursdsy niht tbey retired and the
quarrel was resumed, being kept up until
morning. During its progress Jett said:
"I'll kill you before morning." That be
premeditated the crime is shown by the
fast that be had a rszor in bed with him.
At ) o'clock Mrs. Jett aroee and said to
Jett that she would leave bim. Jumping
up Jett grabbed her aud threw her back
on the bed.
A Terrible Straggle for Lire.
He held her there a second and then
made a fearful slash at ber throat. The
terrified woman broke from his grasp and
ran into the room of a neighbor, clad only
in her night clothes. Jett pursuei and
caught her dragging her back to their
owu apartments, down the narrow bail.
A terrible struggle ensued, rett slashing
at the tvoniHn with bis razor and she
fighting for ber life. Her hands were
frightfully cut by thj razor in the effort
to protect herself. Jett dragged her into
the.r rooms and locked the door.
Did One Creditable Deed.
Mrs. Jett bhd fainted, and the fiend, be
lieving tbat be had killed her, proceeded
to cut bis own throat. Mr. and Mrs.
Clark, the people to whom Mrs. Jett fled
are both aged and were both ill. Tbey
were powerless to help the woman, but
succeeded in alarming the police. The
cilicers kicked iu the door of Jett's room,
and a chasily sight greeted them. Mrs.
Jett w.is lying agaiust the door, faint
from the loss of blood, but still alive
Jett was in the center of the room, sit
ting down aud leaning on his hands, lis
died iu a few seconds.
Forged a Lying Note.
Mrs. Jett will ' probably recover. Two
notes wero found on Jett's person signed
by himself mid wife. One was a state
ment signed by her Faring that she had
mistreated bim and was ready to die with
bim. The other note was from Jett and
stated tbat his wife had been untrue and
betrayed him, and that he could not live
with a woman of that diameter. Mrs.
Jtt denied ever having written orsigtied
Dlriowned by the Kuillts of Pythias.
Tha common belief is that j alously was
the caue of the murder. Jett w.- a
teamster and was a frnstee in one of the
Knights of Pythias lodges here, but tie
lodge decided last night tbat he was net
in good standing and will have nothing
to do with bis fuueral as an organization.
