A Idler from Limn, V"ti tinted Novem ber 21, 1800, snys: "Tho Chi!,'.'"l Oovcnp inent has returned a decided tcfual to Iho ropiest made by tho J-'rcnch Minister, to tho effect that the Dreyfus claim agnlnit Peru, amounting to nearly 1.000,000 silver soles, should ho paid by Chili out of tlio funds leccived for tho sale of I'eruviau guano and dcmsltod In tho Hank of Dng land. When M. Ilannand, tlio recently appointed diplomatic representative of thoKrench Hepulillc, presented his cre dentials to tho President of Chill, lie caused general stlrjiVIso and dissatisfaction by Introducing lu his inaugural remarks an allusion to the Dreyfus claim, expressing thn hope that It would bo canceled by tho ('Milan Treasury, Tho President rcpllel to this in a very guarded mnnner. The Chilian press immediately took up tho matter, nnd In strong terms dissuaded tho (jovnriimcnt from ucijulcsclng In any such concessions. "iiioiiucstloiihas been dually settled by a sharp dispatch from .Scnor (lodoy, the Chilian Minister of foreign Affairs, ad dressed to M, Hariuand, In which that gentleman is Informed that Chili is only responsible for tbu obscrvnuco nf thn terms ot tho treaty of peace signed at Anoim In 181, and that In that document no mention or allusion is mado to the Dreyfus claim. "Tlio Oovernmenl hero felt no appre hension regarding, tho affair, since as far bnek as March Iat It was Informed by tho Government of Chili thatsuch nu attempt was already being mndo by Prance, but that unapproving action of the claim would bo mado by Chili, as lu justice none could be. "Franco evidently Hiimiosod that tho former animosity of Chili toward her whilom enemy existed, and neglected to remenincr tiini v-iuii, in view oi mo very large ccinimcrclal movement between the two Itcpublics, Is imirotlinn Interested in tho national progress of Peru. So that the matter, as far as Chill Is concerned, has terminated, and as all tho dictatorial acts of I'icrola, whoso government approved tho claim, havo been declared null and Illegal by resolution of Congress, tlicro is no probaltlllty of tbo claim being heard of 111 Ibis Hopnbllft "Lord lionougliniore, Iho representative of tho bondholders' committee, is still ut tbo Ilollvlan capital, and tho roimrts re ceived from him aro very favorable.

This will connect tho Dollviun capital directly by lailway and steamer navigation with the Peruvian port of Jlollcndo, thus avoiding tho long tran sit of merchandise from Taena by means of mules, and will be of Immenso advan tage to tho railway extending down from l'tino, wheneo a lino of steamers will con nect with the new railroad to La Paz to Holiendo, passing through Aretiuipa.

Congressman Dorsoy of Nebraska, whoso district is bounded on the north by the Sioux Indian Reservation, has a plan for tho settlement of the Indian troubles.

Ho says that theso Indians cause all tlio trouble. Thoy Incite others to rebellion and llnd their task easy as even in tho civilized Indian there lurks ii savage in stinct.
