CITY of Mf.XUM, Dec 14 Mr. Juan
Alvarez, who lias just returned from an
exploring expedition, in the southwestern
part of the republic, reports that he lia
fonnd a city which has never been entered
by white men, and which has evidently been
in existence for huudre ls of years, gniijg
back before the time of the couiit ui
the couutry by t he Spaniards. Id is mi
o!d Aztec city and the nppronches to it
are go guarded by nature that it is an itn
posMblities to reach it if the inhabitants do
not want the' travtlei to gt-t in. The -city
lies in the almost inaccessible mountain')
in the region lyiuij in the extreme south
western part of the country, and is so fair
way from civilization that few whit.?
men have ever been in the neighborhood.
Struck the Tnwn by Arrlilpitt.
It was by the merest accident that Al
varez became aware that a city was any
where in the vicinity, and after he had
discovered it all bis efforts to reach it,
were unavailing on account of the per
sistent opposition of the natives. He had
been traveling over the mountains in
search of an outlet to the Pacific ocean,
when be came to the top of an elevated
plateau and crossed to the f .irther edge.
He had a magnificent view, and lookit r
over the country saw what he took to be
bouses in a far distant valley. A close in
spection with a glass noon convinced bim
that what he saw was really a collection
of houses and he at once set about reach
ing the place to see who lived in that part
of the country'.
Got a Closer View of the Tlare.
After days of hard work climbing over
cliffs and mountains he reached a place
from which he obtained a go.-xl view of thi
city, and saw ttat it was regularly laid
out in streets and peopled with a race who
knew something about civilization. The
bouses were of stone, and were surrounded
by yards in which were growing flowers
and shrubs. On all sides were evidences
of taste thown by the inhabitant., and it
was evident that be had found a city which
was not known to the outside world. A
careful examination of the country
showed him that the city whs within a
natural amphitheatre, and was accessible
from one side only.
The Only Means of Accra.
He saw that the only means cf access
Was through a long and narrow defiie
which led into the mountaius from the
Pacific coast side, and he started to reach
the place where he conld find this en
trance. He made an outline drawing of
the city as it appeared to him from the
distant mountain top, aud this is all he
has to show that there is a dry within
the heart of the mountain, for be was
never allowed to reach the spot.
Conld See the I'eople Moving.
From this drawing it is plaiu that the
city has not less than 4 000 inhabitants.
The houses are all of stone, and are Run
plied with doors and windows. In the
center was a large bnilding which was
undoubtedly the temple of worship, for
on Its walls could be seen sculptured de
signs representing the deity. It was in
the shape of the ancient teocaUi, which
are to be found in many parts of this
country, and the people could b seen
passing in an 1 out 01 it during- all hours
of the day
There was no Thoroughfare.
After ten Jays arduous work Alvarez
found himself at the foot of the moun
tains ou the western slope, and set about
searching for the cinyon leading to the
City. He had so well marked the lay of
the land that he had no difficulty in find
ing the entrauce, but he was met by
band of Indians who refused to let him
proceed. They offered him no violence,
but insisted that he should return. He
told them that he had come over the
mountains aud that he did not know how
to get beck. After a consultation be was
told that he would have to remain awhile
as a prisoner.
Given a Free Mule little.
Two runners were Bent into the moun
tains who returned in a day with ordets
from one in authority, and Alvarez was
blindfolded and placed on the back of a
mule. He traveled in this condition for
three days, only having the bandage re
moved from bis eyes at night. On the
fourth day he was told to remove the
bandngo, and when be did so, he found
himself on the borders of the Pacific ocean.
The Indians had gone, leaving him with
nothing to guide him back to the place
where he hud seen the city.

his parents thi.t he committed the crime.
The note was 1 jft on his desk at his office,
and his father round it there when he en

several other pt rsons. When he came from
the room he dec led that he bad fouud any

It read, in part: "I am going to New York

I shall not retu -n alive."

In view of the closely woven web oi

needed a letter like this if geuuine, to set
nil doubts at lest. -Mr. Adams and his
wife, who live n the lower part of Nor

ity for the statement that the letter has

but so far as concerns the British mi nis-

are chit fly the outcome of Kuropeau rival
ry for the trade of Chili, merchants and
other unauthorized persons making as
sertions without foundation, in order to

to a surprising degree the illusions thus
created, and some of them express anxiety

Itlinistei- Mxt'.a AViltes a Circular.
Matta, Chilian minister of foreign af
fairs, has prepared for distribution ainoiii;
the loitliun legation in Kurope and
America a circular letter giving Chili't
sale of the difficulty with the United
States growing out of the Baltimore
trouble. Af er a great deal of trouble a
copy of this document has been procured.
It is written in Spanish and the follow-
lug is the translation of it: '
"With reference to the n port of the
retarv of the navy and the message of the

Washington Statements Inexact.
"There is a want of exactnessand frank
ness in the statements made in Washing
ton. The affairs took place in bad quar
ters of the city, the ''maintop ot Valpar
aiso," and among people who are by no
means models ot discretion and temper
ance. When the police and other forces
interfered and calmed down the tumult
there were already several hundred men
engaged in it, aud it had spread to a dis
tance of some ten blocks or more from the
place where it commenced.
Eg-an Has a Lot to Answer For.
"Mr Egan purposely communicated to
us a note in an aggressive and violent lan
guage on Oct. 36. as shownby the copy and
the note was answered Oct, 87. Nov.
IS began the summing up which was sus
pended on account of the non appearance
of the crew of the Baltimore and on ac
count of the illegal pretenses and denials
of the same Mr. Eigan. There has never
been any provocation commenced or ac
cepted by this department, and it has
always maintained an attitude ot fairness
and prudence. It, has never had an ag

PEACE AT THE CHILIAN LEGATION.
No Sln of War There Xor Any New
The Cruiser Baltimore.
Washington, Dec. 14. The Chilian le
gation had a peaceful air about it last,
night; the members were entertaining
callers, and there was nothing to indicate
that the message of President Harrison
bearing on the Chilian situation had
caused any uneasiness among them.
Minister Montt was not at home, aud the
secretary of the legation received those
who had business with it. He said that
no late advices had been received from
Chili, and that Minister Montt had not
yet received the circular from his country
giving the Chilian side of the situatiou.
Ie.n'( Have a Warlike Look.
The fact that the navy department h.is
thought proper to permit the Baltimore
to leave Chili at this time is regarded
here as evidence that the negotiations
now iu progress between the two coun
tries are being conducted satisfactorily to
the United Stater. It is stated at the
navy department that Secretary Tracy in
tends to keep several meu of-war iu South
American waters until all signs of un
pleasantness have disappeared.
Highly Important and Myt.erloufc
The state department received a confi
dential telegram of the highest import
ance from- Eian at Santiago forty eight
hours ago. 1 is to the effect that the
Chilian govern tneut has concluded its in
vestigation of the causes which led to the
attack on the American sailors in Valpa
raiso. Egan says that upon the report
concerning this the Chilian government
will make its answer to the American de
mand for satisfaction and reparation, and
that the reply will be defiant and very
galling to the American administration.

We've heard of a Twoman
who said she'd walk five miles
to get a bottle of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription if she
couldn't get it without. That
woman had tried it. And it's
a medicine which makes itself
felt in toning up the system
and correcting irregularities aa
soon as its use is begun.
Go to your drug store, pay
a dollar, get a bottle and try
it try a second, a third if
necessary. Before the third
one's been taken you'll know
that there's a remedy to help
you. Then you'll keep on
and a cure '11 come.
But if you shouldn't feel the
help, should be disappointed
in the results you'll find a
guarantee printed on the bottle-wrapper
that'll get your
money bnck for you.
How many women are there,
who'd rather have the money
than health ? And " Favorite
Prescription" produces health.
Wonder is that there's a
woman willing to suffer when
there's a guaranteed remedy
