VARIED COVMENT ON THE MESSAGE.
llrief ExpreMlons Showing How tho
statesmen Feel Abuut the Situation.
Immediately after adjournment aena
tors gathered in little groups to discuss the
Siessage. Said Senator Sherman, chair
man of the committe on foreign relations:
The m.s-ge is forcible, clean and point
ed. It is a matter to be thought out It
wouta do manifestly improper for me to
Frye m ember of 1 he committee on for
eign relations. The message is clear, con
cise and thorough. It will commend itself
to the people of the i onntry; congress will
not dare do otherwise than support the
president in his demands upon Chili, even
if it had any inclinat on to do so.
Mitehell Uepnbli .an It was a strong,
able document. I sincerely hope war may
be averted, but I am in favor of maintain
ing the dignity of our country to the
IMplnmatic S( natnr Allison.
Allison It is a strong and vigorous mes
sage, stating the caso after full examina
tion of all the facts by the president. It
appears that the de nands are just, and
sooner or later will lie accorded by Chili.
Piatt The United States must maintain
its dignity, and mint stand for the pro
tection of its sailors. I think that the sen
timent of the whole country ought to sus
tain the president in adhering to his ulti
matum, and give hi n power to enforce it.
Gray IDem.J, a nn mber of the commit
tee on foreign relations, said that the forca
of the message depended vcrv much upon
l lie testimony w hic i accompanied it; that
that would have to le weighed and fairly
construed; that tl e message was one
which demanded an I challenged the patri
otic attention of evey senator.
Morcnn IJrscrves His Opinion.
Morgan, another nemher of the commit
tee, expressed hims if ia somewhat similar
terms, ami so did most cf the Democratic
senators. The e.. tptions were Senatoi
Daniel, w ho saidi '-'.'he president ought to
be supported in tb j stand he has taken,
and he will he,'" and tVnntor White endorsed
the view-. Senator Gibson, of Maryland,
saidi 4T shall suppo t the president in this.
It is not a juditical matter, and I heartily
approve his course, as must all Amer
icans." Jones of Arkansas '-I like its
tone.'' Senator Palmer, of Illinois, said he
listened to reading of the message w i h
very great interest;. More than that he
would not say.
C liili lnst Bad; Out, Says Cullom.
Republican senat irs, not members of tha
foreign affairs committee, were very out
spoken in their cor unendat ion of the mes
sage. Said Cullom: "-That's a good strom,
message. There is meaning in every word.
If these fellows iloi "t back out, wVll have
to clean them out
Hiscock It is a Aery excellent message,
indeed. I have no question that the presi

and no doubt that the whole country will

VIEWS OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Some Are More Forcible Than Polite, but
"r.ver; thing Ones."
Among the representatives there was
more belligerence. Oates of Alabama
thought the message an able and diplo
matic document. "Congress," he added,
"should stand by t he president in his de
mands and his p tparations to break oft
the relations with Chili should she persist
in her present attitude. If Chilli does not
apologize w e cu. ht to send enough men
and vessels down there to whip h 1 out of
her." The elcmei t that preferred to read
more before givi igan opinion was repre
sented by Holmar , who said: -The mes
sage is a state paper of force and high
character. So far as my opinion on tin;
war question goe.-, I must si-e all sides of
the question befo -e making it public."
Wants Apology or AVar.
Curtis Ilepubl can The message is a
strong, straightforward, dignified docu
ment. I think tl at reparation should be
made by Chili, and though war is deplor.
able we should maintain the dignity of the
ynited States at any price. I am in favor
of war unless Chili apologizes.
Caruth A strong impressive, forcible
message. It mians business aud Chili
must back down.
Livingston It is a manly, patriotic pa
per. 1 am surprised at the extent of the
outrage. If the facts bear out the mes
sage, lam wit! the president. If a de
mand is made f Chili I shall support it.
It is a popular dxumeut with Democrats
Tom Keed Has Nothing to Say!
Keed of Maim declined to express him
self. McKenna of C flifornia It is a remarka
bly able presentation, and the president
makes out a goo 1 case. He shows himself
to tie an able ma a.
O'Ferrall of V rginia The message indi
cates war.but we should go slow and exam
ine carefully all the evidence. Thetrouble
with the evidei.ee is that those sailors of
the Baltimore have made out too much.
It does not seem reasonable that all of
tbeui were perfectly sober and quiet in the
worst part of Valparaiso. However, if the
flag has been insulted I will go as far as
anybody to 'brin about a retraction.
Dolliver of Iiwa Its a great message,
and it will be unanimously approved by
congress and tl e country. It means that
the American fl ig must be respected by all
nations, irrespective of their size.
Massachusetts and Alabama.
Henry Ca)ot Lodge A most able mes
sage. It is a strong presentation of the
facts, and gives congress the information
it ought to have. At the same time, it is
a perfectly ten perate message. There is
no attempt to humiliate Chili. It leaves
the door wide open for Chili to do the
decent and proper thing and thus end the
matter. The matter ts now before con
gress, and I ha' e no doubt congress will
General Wheeler, Alabama I approve of
the message. The house will sustain the
president. He could not have said less,
and he said what he had to say in a digni
li ed and proper manner.
Some of the Carping Critics.
There were some who could find no
merit in the document, as follows:
Hayes of Io .va (Deni.l delivered himself
of the opinion that the message read like
the brief of a country lawyer.
McMUlin I did not hear all of the mes
sage, but I though it remarkably strange
that a defettso of what Cgan had done
preceded the r resentation of the case.

to roe, Mr. H irrison ts pluming himself

Springer The message is precipitate,
and should not have been presented now.

brief of a pettifogging lawyer. The quota

case is a bid to take the wind of the Irish

foreign affairs committee Although I am
of Irish descent there is too much Irish in
the message for me too much Pat Egnn

Breckinridge of Kentuckr I think, first,
that the president has made out a good
ase, but it was that of a lawyer, and not
as I expected, the petition of a statesman.
Vt hat Bynum Thinks Abont It.
Bytium We are in honor bound to
maintain the dignity of this country. "We
tan accept nothing less than that which
the president has already demanded. The
antipathy of the Chilians to us was pro
voked by Kgan and the policy which our
adiniiusuation adopted iu its "treatment of
the. congressional party. To that extent
the administration must bear the responsi
bility for the present complications. But
the situation is now such that if Chili re
fuses reparation it is with r.s very plainly
a case of 54 40 or light.
Otis of Kansas Alliance I heartily ap
prove the sentiment expressed by the presi
dent. Chili should make the reparation
demanded, and if she isn't willing to do it
she should be made to do so by force. 1 am
in favor of protecting the dignity of the
American flag iu every part of the world.
Illinois Statesmen's Views.
Durborow p)crn. It is a strong mes
sage and has evidently produced a marked
effect iu the house, but ve must suspend
judgment until we learn all the facts.
Newberry l)em. If an offense of this
nature had been given us by Eugland,
Prance, Germany or some other of the
great powers of the earth, there would be
no difference of sentiment in this country.
But to make war upon these people in their
present condition, and considering the dis
parity in size between the two countries,
would be outrageous.
Hitt Hep. The president has written a
forcible and adroit message. The manner
in w hich he makes it apparent that the at
tack was upon our uniform and not upon
the men wearing it is a skillful aud effec
tive piece of work.
TEXT Or THE "ULTIMATUM."
I'nde Sam's fuse Against Chill iu Com
paratively Small Space.
Washington, Jan. 2C The text of the
note to Minister Kgan of Jan. 21, in which
Secretary Blaine transmits the ultimatum
of this government to the Chilian authori
ties, is as follows:
'T am directed by Cte president to say to
you that he has given careful attention to
all that has been submitted by the govern
ment of Chili touchiug the alTair of the as
sault upon the crew of the United States
steamer Baltimore in the city of Valparaiso
on the evening of the loth of October last
and to the evidence of the officers and crew
of that vessel aud of soma others who
witnessed the affray, and that his conclu
sions upon the w hole case are as follows:
'1. That the assault is not relieved of the
aspect which the early information of the
event gave to it, viz.: That of an attack
upon the uniform of the United States
navy, having its origin and motive in a
feeling of hostility to this government and
not iu any act of the sailors or of any of
The Case Where It was Oct. 23.
"2. That the public authorities at Valpa
raiso flagrantly failed in their duty to pro
tect our men, and that some of the police
and of the Chilian soldiers and sailors were
themselves guilty of unprovoked assault
upon our sailors before and after arrest.
He thinks the preponderance of the evi
dence and the inherent probabilities lead
to the conclusion that Biggin was killed
by the police or soldiers.
SI. That he is therefore compelled to
bring the case back to the position taken
by this government in the note of Mr.
Wharton of Oct. 23 last (a copy of which
you will deliver with this) and to ask for a
suitable apology and for some adequate
reparation for the injury done to this gov
ernment. Wooid Do as Would Ite Done By.
"Yon will assure the government of Chili
that the presideut has no disposition to be
exacting or to ask anything which this
government would not, under the same
circumstances, freely concede. He regrets
that from the beginning the gravity of the
questions involved has not apparently been
appreciated by the government of Chili,
and that au affair iu which two American
seamen were killed and sixteen ot hers were
seriously wounded, while only one Chilian
was seriously hurt, should not be distin
guished from an ordinary brawl between
tailors in which the provocation is wholly
personal and the participation limited.
A Matter of Sell-Kespect.
"Xo self-respecting government can enn
fent that persons in its service, whether
civil or military, shall be beaten and killed
iu a foreign territory in resentment of acts
done by or imputed to their government
without exacting a suitable reparation.
The government of the United States has
freely recogu'zed this principle and acted
upon it when the injury was done by its
people to one holding an official relation to
a friendly power iu resentment of actsdone
by the latter. In such case the United
States has not sought for words of the
smallest value or equivocal meaning in
which to convey its ajiology, but has con
demned such acts in vigorous terms and
has not refused to make other adequate
That Offensive Matt Note.
"But it is not my purpose here to discuss
the incidents of this affair, but only to
state the conclusions which this govern
ment has reached. We have given every
opportunity to the government of Chili to
present any explanatory or mitigating
facts and have had due regard to the fact
that the government of Chili was for a
considerable part of the time that has
elapsed since Oct. 16 upon a provisional
basis. I am further directed by the presi
dent to state that his attention has been
called to the note of instructions sent by
Mr. Matta, secretary of foreign affairs, to
you, under date of the 11th ulU Mr. Montt
very prudently, and, I must suppose, from
a just sense of the offensive nature of the
dispatch, refrained from communicating it
efhcially to this government.
Obnoxious in m High Degree.
"But in view of the fact that Mr. Montt
wa3 directed to give it to the press of this
country, and that it was given the widest
possible publicity throughout the world,
this government must take notice of it.
You are, therefore, directed to say to the
Chilian government that the expression
therein imputing untruth and insincerity
to the president and the secretary of the
navy in their oSicial communications to
the congressof the United States are i n the
bigX-yi degree offensive to this govern
Some Diplomatic Irony.
uBecogiiii.iug the usual rules of diplo
mat ic intercom s and of the respect and
courtesy which should characterize inter
national relations (which he cannot assume
are wholly unfamiliar to the Chilian for
eign office), the president was disposed to
regard the dispatches referred to as indi
cating a purpose to bring about a suspen
sion of diplomatic relations; but in view of
the fact that Mr. Matta was acting ; ro
visionally and that a reorganization of the
Chilian cabinet w as alxiut to take place,
and afterwa-id in further view of the expec
tation that was held out of a withdrawal
and of a suitable apology, notice of this
grave offense has been delayed. jmoJ
Very I'lain "United Stales."
"I am now, however, directed by the pres
ident to say that if theolTensive parts of the
dispatch of the 11th of December are not
at once withdrawn and a suitable apology
offered, with the same publicity that was
given to the offensive expressions, he will
have no other course open to him except to
terminate diplomatic relations with the
government of Chili.
No; Can't Do It Just Yet, Mr. Chiii.
'"Mr. Montt, in a note of Jan. 2t, has ad
vised me that he has been directed by his
government to inform the government of
the United States that you are not persona
grata to the government of Chili and to
request your recall. This has been laid
before the president and he directs you to
say that, in view of the foregoing, he does
not deem it necessary to make any present
response thereto. It will be quite time to
consider this suggestion after a reply to
this note is received, as we shall kiic.
whether any correspondence can be main
tained with the government of Chili upon
terms of mutual respect.

says: "The document in which the presi
dent transfers future responsibility in this
already aggravatingly long drawn out
trouble from his own shoulders to those of
our senators and representatives, is a clear
and pointed recital of wrongs nnd insults
on the part of Chili and of patience and
forbearance on the part of the United

to deal with this question as creditably as

The Post-Dispatch (Independent Demo

dent may le found in the Chilian corre
spondence which was expected to fire the
American heart w ith an intense desire for
war w ith poor little Chiii.
Lorivn.LE, Jan. 2n The Courier-Journal
says of tiie president's message, that
it is inconclusive; that the resources of
diplomacy have uot been exhausted; that
Chili has already made some amends in
"regretting" the Valparasio riot, in promis
ing to punish the guilty, aud in permitting;
the refugees to leave. "The whole question
now goes to congress, where it should re

too serious a matter to 1? decided under
