Washington, Jan. 23. Yesterday aftct
noon, immediately after the cabinet meet
ing, a cahltj dispatch was sent to Minister
Kgan instructing him at once to lay before
the Chilian government, the fact t hat un
lets a satisfactory reply to the demands of
the Tinted States be made lieforc Monday
the president would on that day redeem
his promise to submit the matter to
the legislative branch of the government.
This communication is in no sense an ulti
matum, but is designed solely to acquaint
the Chilian authorities with the earnest
ness of this government, and with the
needs there is for immediate action in
Santiago if publicity of the correspond
ence is to be avoided.
Washington-, Jan. 23. The recall of
Minister Kgan, the rumor of which was
mentioned in these dispatches Thnrsday
night, was formally requested of Secretary
Blaine yesterday by Minister Montt at the
head of the Chilian logatation in this city.
It is said that the Chilian government
base their request for the recall of Mr.
Egan upon the allegations that the Amer
ican minister has been guilty of making
reports to Washington that were delibe
rately false and of engaging in intrigues
for the purpose of creating trouble liet ween
the l.'nited States and Chili.
Approve tf Kgan's Conduct.
"The publication of the correspondence
with Chili," said a gentleman who is ac
quainted with it. "will conclusively dis
prove the assertions of the Chilian gover
ment. Mr. Kgan has kept this govern
ment fully advised of the progress of events
in Chili since his arrival there; but he has
done so 'without partisan bias. The
members of the Vuited States government
who are familiar with his conduct fully
approve it. and President Harrison and
Secretary Blaine are fully in accord in the
estimation with which Mr. Kgau is held."
Mill Precipitate a Crisis.
This action on the part of the Chilian
government, which is the first official in
dication of their dissatisfaction with
Minister Kgan, will have a tendency to
precipitate a crisis in the relations of the
two countries. It is taken in official circles
to indicate that Chili does not intend to
make reparation or apology for the Haiti
more incident tin less it can attach condi
tions which will preserve the pride of the
government of that country, and enahle it
to retain the respect and support of the
people, who would resent an unqualified
lie May Be Recalled. However.
In accordance with the rule of diplo
macy Minister Kgan may le recalled from
Santiago, but it will not indicate in the
least any reflect ion upon his course by this
government, lie will come home, it is
said, if he comes, only because l is attitude
as minister of the Vuited States at Santi
ago has been so loyal ami aggressive that
it has incensed the interests at that court
antagonistic to those of this country,
which were sufficiently powerful to influ
ence the government there to ask his re
moval. Advices from Santiago show that
the American residents in Chili are in
sympathy with Kgan. and that other for
eign residents wonder how the Vnited
States can contiune friendly relations with
a government the minister of which holds
such adverse sentiments as those which
en have In-expressed there.
The Note Malta Complain. Of.
Another reason which it is said was al
leged for asking for Kgan's recall, was the
note sent to the Chilian government by
Kgan on Oct. 2ti. which Scnor Matta de
signated as aggressive in design and vio
lent in language. This was the first of
ficial notice taken by Kgan of the Balti
more affair, and it was prepared by express
instructions of Assist ant Secretary Whar
ton under date of Oct. Thisletter of
instructions was the one generally attri
buted to President Harrison, and Kgau's
note to Senor Matta was an almost exact
reproduction of the terms employed in it.
This incident, under tbe conditions pre
vailing.eomts perilously near a suspension
of communication In-twecn the two coun
tries and the developments of the next day
or two will be awaited with lunch interest.
St 11 Believes War Probable.
The message of the president on the
Chilian affair will go to congress early
next week, Mr. Blaine said yesterday. The
president, it is understood, has not changed,
his opinion that war is probable. There is
no change in the situation.
SPECIAL REQUESTS ON ENVELOFS.
A Bill to Take Vncle Sam out of Com
petition with Printer.
Washington', .lan. 23. Congressman
Owen Scott, of Illinois, will introduce a
bill in congress to prohibit Vncle Sam from
printing "special request" envelopes, and
thus interfering with the business of pri
vate printer. These envelopes contain t he
customary return directions and in many
cases form a neat little business card in
the upper left hand corner of the envelope.
The act which authorizes the printing of
these envelopes by the government pro
hibits the printing a of business advertise
ment or anything more than is absolutely
necessary for an adequate return notice.
The Competition In fair.
But by merging the business and ad
dress into the title of the firm the legal ob
stacle is overcome, and Vncle Sain really
engages in the business of turning out en
velopes in direct competition with all the
job printing offices in the country. Con
gressman Scott further claims that Uncle
Sam is an unfair competitor because be
prints them at tbe actual cart of putting
oat ordinary stam pert envelopes, and while
paining no profit for the government robs
the printer of his living profits.
A Monopoly la EaTeltrpe. ...
These envelopes are not printed at the
jjqjtoffic department, but for ten ymu-s
past the contract oas oeen let out to a tlrui
at Hartford. The business has steadily in
creased since lSoo, until hist year the gov
ernment put out 281, 74.1,500 of "these special
request envelopes, which was more than
half of all the stamped envelopes sold.
Congressman Scott will oppose t he iost
master general"8 cheap postage bill which
provides for free envelopes and gives Uncle
Sam a monopoly of the envelope trade.
JUSTICE BRADLEY'S LIFE. ENDED.
The Aged and Distinguished Jurist Pass
ed to the Majority.
WA.srtlXGTON, .Tan. 2:1. The physician's
rvfeJiction that Justice Bradley would not
live until yesterday morning came very
near fulfillment, but the distinguished
jurist resisted the approach of death until
(:1., when he passed away without a strug
gle. Justice Bradley had been ill for sev
eral months from general break down. On
Monday he grew w$-se and has since fail
ed rapidly, although' apparently not suffer
ing any pain. Though conscious when
amused he was so feeble that he talked
hut little and took no notice of those about
him. He was devotedly attended by his
aged wife, two daughters and a sou.
Details of the Jndge's Illness.
Justice Bradley had an attack of the
grip last spring, and he never thoroughly
recovered. Summer brought no rally and
in November he caught a slight cold which,
coupled with his enfeebled condition, made
treat inroads into his strength, and during
t lie present term of the supreme court he
was unable to be present at its daily ses
sions. It was only about a week ago. how
ever, that his health became such as seri
ously to alarm his family and friends,
though it was not expected that any fatal
results would follow so soon as they did.
Will He a Uiet Funeral.
The funeral in accordance with Justice
Bradley's wishes, will be quiet, l'rivata
services will be held at his late residence
tomorrow afternoon, and the remains will
then be taken to Newark. X. J., where the
interment will take place Monday after
noon. The supreme court adjourned immedi
ately after assembling until Tuesday next,

which had been sustained by the court

Jocph I'. Bradley was a native of New York,
lie wus burn at Heme, in Albany county.
March 11. lsl:l. He was sixth in the line of
descent from Francis Hrndley. who came to
this country from England and settled in Fair
field. Conn., in 1H45. His great-grandfather was
a revolutionary soldier, and bis grandfather
was one of the hemes of the war of 1013. His
father, Philo Bradley, followed the plow for a
livelihood, but was noted for his fondness for
books and learning, and occasionally taught
school to vary the monotony of a farmer's life.
His mother was Mercy (iardncr. who came of
tihode Island stock. Joseph was the eldest of
a family of eleven children.
lraduateI with High Honors.
TTis boyhood days were passed, as were those
of other hoys of that time, in helping about
tlie farm during the cropping season and in at
tendance upon the district school during the
winter. It seems that he had inherited his
father's love .if liooks. and had shown such a
thirst for knowledgelhat he soon went beyond
the capacity of hlsteachers: so that at the "time
he lieeame a pedagogue he was practically a
self-taught man. In 1st! ho entered Kntger's
college. New Jersey, from which institution he
was graduated three years Inter with high
honors, and among such classmates as Freling
hnyscn, late secretary of state tinder President
Arthur; Cortland Parker and Governor ". A.
Thirty Years in Active Practice.
Ill lst he was admitted to the bar and for
thirty years thereafter wa engaged in active
practice, eften being employed in cases of
great importance Ik fore i oth the federal and
state court. In lsiit he agued his tirst case be
fore the suprime court of the I'nited States,
when he contended successfully that unless
congress has pushed an act to the contrary a
stiile may authorize a drawbridge to be con
strue ted over a navigable river, a point which
has frequently been afthmed since without dis
sent. Services On I he Supreme Bench.
In lstn came the two vacancies in the Su
preme court which were filled by the appoint
ment and confirmation of himself and Justice
stro t(S. Justice Bradley's commission bore
date of March 21, 170. and be wu assigned to
the Fifth circuit, which then embraced the
gulf states from Georgia to Te ts. Here for
many years arose more federal questions of
importance than in any other circuit and tht
new justice was therefore called upon to
render many weighty decisions. Tea years
later, by the resignation of his associate.
Justice Stroug. he was assigned to the Third
circuit, to which he was attached at the time
of his death.
One of the Rlertoral Commission.
It is said of him that as a justice his opinions
were marked by a great breadth of learning
and that, few officials have leen so rarefnl
aliout overstepping the limits of const it ntional
power, lie was one of the supreme court jus
tices on the electoral commission, and voted
with the Hepnblicans in deciding the case of
Tilden vs. Hayes. As a man he was kindly and
generous in his dis;ms:tion and plain and sim
ple in his tastes. He once said that he had
carefully preserved his mother's old spinning
wheel a.s a reminder of hislioyhood days and
as his best title to hereditary respectability.
Talking of a Successor.
When the death of Justice Bradley lie
caine. known, speculations as to his suc
cessor were indulged in by politicians
around the hotels and at the Capitol. An
opinion prevails in many quarters that
Attorney General Miller will lie selected
by the president, to fill the. vacancy. But
in others it is accepted for sure that the
appointment will go to some one within
the circuit represented by Justice Bradley,
which comprises Pennsylvania, Delaware
and New Jersey. Chief Justice Paxton.
