Santiago, Jan. 25. The ultimatum of
the United States government has just
b .en made public here. The terms are:
Immediate withdrawal of Matta's note.
Indemnity and apology.
Failing in tiiis Minister Egan is to lie re
plied at once and diplomatic relations
Valparaiso, Jan. 25. The correspondent
of the United Press is informed that Minis
ter Kennedy, representing Great Britain at
Santiago, has received definite instructions
from his government to make an offer to
the government of Chili to act as mediator
between that country and the United
Stites for the purpose of preventing a war.
The Chilian foreign minister, SenorPereira,
has iufornied Minister Egati that the mes
sage from the United States government,
received on Saturday, and which is re
carded as an ultimatum, will be answered
Washington, Jan. as. Notwithstanding
the generally peaceful character of t be day
there was any amount of talk yesterday
over the prospects of trouble with Chili in
view if the despatch of an ultimatum by
this government to the South American
republic. All the departments were
close!, and of course there was no official
or public manifestations as to the matter.
Inquiries nt the departments were
answered, in most case.., by the mesengr r
and watchmen on duty, and there was no
indication on the surface of the excite
ment that existed in official circles. At
the navy department two or three officials
were found, but they united in saying t hat
nothing had leen received from A'alpa
raiso. One of the officials said the stories
that Admiral Ghtrardi had sailed away to
the east in the Philadelphia to meet and
engage the Captain IVat as tne latter
sailed away from Toulon in an incomplete
com! ion with an inexperienced crew, was
a fail, if ul creation, but lie would not say
wher the Admiral had gone, if he 'km"'".
The AIIk1 "I lliiiiatnin."
No information was to be had at the
state department, none of the otlieials
through whom communications reach the
public having visited the building during
the day. The terms of the ultimatum to
Chili have not been correctly given in any
of the dispatches referring to it. Three
subjects are covered by t he document. The
assault upon the Baltimore's sailors is the
first. The secretary of state directs Egan
to inform the Chilian government that
after a full and careful examination of
evidence of that i.fi'air as submitted by the
Chilian irovertmunt ami shown in the ex
amination of the Halt iniore's sailors, the
president feels compelled to stand by the
terms of Assistant Secretary Wharton's
instruct ions to Minister Egan, triven Oct.
iid, r.nd to insist upon an apology and
Matta's Note anil Ksau'i Recall.
- T'te second subject is the Matia circular
note of December 1:1. This note, the Cbil
iau government is informed, is offensive
to t''e president and other olUriais of the
Uni-ed State;-, and that unless it is
promptly withdrawn ami the language
disavowed by the Chilian government in
equally public and general form as that in
whe-h it wtis circulated. Minister Egati
v. id ask for passports and diplomatic re
latioiisbetv.---.-ii the countries will cease.
Th! thiru .-tt.-ject is the proposed recall of
Minister Egan. Acknowledgement is
made of receipt of Minister Moutt's note
stating that Egan is not M-rsona grata to
the government of Chili, and announc
ing the readiness and desire o that gov
ernment to receive another representative
of the United States at Santiago.
.A Question of i-racity.
Upon this subject the government of
Chili is informed that the note cannot now
lie considered. There are ot her and weight
ier matters H-n'ing set tlement, and when
they are satisfactorily disposed of this gov
ernment will then consider the request for
the recall of Kgan. The United States
minister was, of course, notified of the re
ceipt of the note from Senor Montt, and it
is said that a message has leeu received
from hiiu stating that the members of the
Chilian government authorized to speak
upon such matters have verbally assured
him that they were satisfied with him, and
that similar statements were made to the
ministers from other countries. This dis
patch raises a question of veracity between
Kgan and Senor Montt.
y-wbo.ly Willing to Talk.
A visit to Secretary Blaine's residence
last night for Chilian news was without
result, the secretary declining to talk
Minister Montt was none the less reserved,
lie declined to answer any inquiries con
cerning Chilian affairs, and said he had no
news to give out. An incident that goes
to show that Minister Montt regards the
situation as very grave occurred a few
evenings ago at the house of a cabinet of
ficer, when the minister, iu speaking of
the Chilian question, became so painfully
exc-ited that the subject had to be dropped.
AN EX-SENATOR'S REMARKS.
John R. Hrndrnou, of Missouri, Comes
to ( hill's Defense.
Ex-Senator ' John B. Henderson, of Mis
souri,, does not think our government is
wholly in the right in the Chilian contro
versy. In discussing the situation yester
day, particularly with reference to the
right of asylum for refugees, he finds two
sides to it. The refugees harbored by Egan,
Le 6ays, are citizens of Chili, who, being
guilty of crimes under Chilian law, sought
tefnge at the house of the United States
mianrct la order to escape the Dunipnmes
uue to those crimes, "i nese men nave not
only been sheltered and protected at the
house and at the legation of our minister
resident at Santiago for several months,
against the protest of the existing govern
ment, but they are finally removed and
peaceably transported by lund from Santi
ago to Valparaiso, and there placed on a
war vessel of the United States, to be
afely transported by the authority of our
government beyond the jurisdiction of the
country whose laws they have violated.
'Tut Yourself In Ills Place."
"Suppose that during the late civil war
in this country the English or the French
minister at Washington had given shelter
and protection to Jefferson Davis, to Jacob
Thompson, General Early or General
Beauregard, how long would the house or
person of that minister been respected?
To submit the question is to evoke the
answer." Mr. Henderson then quoted
from Secretary Fish in 1ST5, and from
Webster, Seward, Marcy and Bayard, all
repudiating the doctrine and practice of
asylum, and then said: Ve have no
right to interfere with the civil policy of
otiier nations, and to make the houses of
our representatives abroad a harbor for
offenders against their laws is an insult
to thein far greater than the action of un
authorized mobs can possibly be to us.
Italy Is Still a-Waiting.
"One year ago, when Italy demanded im
mediate apology for the killing of her citi
zens by the New Orlean mob our secretary
said that he would not lie hurried or bul
lied into an apology until the facts were
known. That deed is yet without apology,
without indemity and without pledges for
the future. In seeming fear that the re
sult of judicial trials in authorized courts
will be disappointing to our pride we rush
ta a mock trial at Vallcjo, where there is
no test of the truth, no cross-examination,
no sanctions of an oath, no rules of prac
tice, no public fear or danger of the penal
ties of perjury."
An Odiflna Reflection.
-If we had to go to war with every
nation the blood of whose citizens stains
our soil from mob violence, no full years
of peace would bless our land. Chili re
pmi;ates all governmental responsibility
for the mob of last October. She claims
that it, was the sudden and unlicensed out
break of drunken men on both sides, ishe
proposes to establish this fact unir the
due administration of her law . and asks
for time to furnish the evidence. Shall
u:ir pride forbid us to wail
As to the Ke.-ati of )'.gan.
As to the right of Chiii to ak for Min
ister Egan's recall, and that such request
v onid endanger peaceful relations lietweeti
the two countries, (ienerai Henderson said:
Is it possible that we have reached such a
position of haughty arrogance that we
shall insist upon imposing our choice of
ministers upon foreign nations? This is a
right which we have exercised from the
foundation of the government. General
Washington, while president, demanded
of i-'rance the recall of Edtuuwl trenesu
We have since dcmaii.bi. ,t'te ?vcnit of a

There is one point in the aJjove ia which
tlie e-senator speaks without the record.
As soon a 1 he news of t lie mob violence at
New Orleans was reccivi-d the president
ca'oled to Italy a telegram of most earnest
regret and horror at the occurrence. It
was full enough in those respects to lie
considered a frank apology. So far Chili
has expressed no regret ofTiei.-. !;.-. It is
said that the Chilian government is in
trouble with il s. own peopie., who arc op
posed to any hack-iio'.vii ;;i the matter. It
will also be r. tiien-.oi :i d thai l'arkei son,

As to the recall cf Euan this government
h.s a right to know The reus ,ns which
render him u:ia --i.-p' to tin- govi rn
uieut of tli.it eo : ni iy, i.iel if it v. ere the
purpose to recall him they could probably
be asked. But if Chili wants to have him
leave the country she will i:ae to do as
this cour.iry did with Enrd Snckville
M esi, ; ip.ai send l.ini his p.is- .oils, or, if
this government should he s..:islied that
Chili was desirous ,f getting rid of Mr.
Egan simply because he is the representa
tive of the United States. Egau might be
instructed to demand his passports and
then leave. Eurd Salisbury, as he had a
right, declined to recall Sa-kvilU-West
when asked by the United States to do so.
STATUS CF OUR MILITIA.
It aiiV.it lie ( alinl On tr;o Abroad
I low the United States will increase its
fighting stn-nvrth in case of war with Chili
is a mooted question here. The president
can call out the entire National guard to
repel invasion, am! he may do almost the
same thing to suppress invasion in any one
of the states, the only one exception beiiur
the militia of the disturbed state. But
when the service to lie rendered is in other
lands t hen it would te necessary to call for
volunteers, and of course all such from the
ranVs of the National guard would receive
preference. Iu. that case they would have
to leave the National guard and enlist in
the regular army.
Value of the National Guard.
A prominent, officer of the National
guard of the District says: "Sould there
le war with Chili or any other power, the
value of the National guard would at once
lie apparent. In round numbers, there are
110,000 men. and at least 30 per cent, of
these would volunteer for services abroad.
This would mean that an expeditionary
force would lie comjiosed largely of men
who have received suflicient training to
admit of their being put in the field at
once." Volunteers are showing up al
ready. A letter is printed from Colonel
Wm. Clendenin. of the Sixth Illinois, to
Captain E. I. I'aubel. of Company 8.,
same regiment ,and the subject. The colonel
asks t he captain bow many men of his
company would respoudif called upon.
The captain rep! ivs t hat, the w hole com
pany is ready, and that- it can be increased
from thirty eight to I'M men in forty-eight
hours. Eaubcl's company is at i'reeport.
