JAN. 5. 1892.
(From Daily, Dec. 20.) -
By the arrival of the bark Cey
lon and the courtesy of Captain
Calhoun, we have received San
rancisco papers to the 13th inst.,
two days later than hitherto pub
lished here.
The Now York Herald's corre
spondent at Valparaiso, Chile,
cables that "the circular letter pre
pared by the Chilean Minister of
Foreign Affairs for distribution
among the Chilean legations in
Europe 3nd America, gives Chile's
side of the difficulty growing out
of the Baltimore outrage."
The document is too long for re
production, but Senor Matta states
that the report of the Secretary of
the Navy and the message of the
President of the United States are
grounded upon information which
is "erroneous or deliberately incor
rect." Concerning the sailors of the
"U. S. S. Baltimore, he says there is
"a want of frankness and exactness
in the statements made in Wash
ington." The affray began in a
disreputable portion of the city,
"and several hundred people were
already engaged in the fight when
the police and other forces inter
fered and calmed down the tumult.''
The Minister further says that
"Chile never had an aggressive
policy, and will never approve of
a humiliating one."
A number of the crew of the
Baltimore subscribed nearly S500
for a monument, suitably inscribed,
to bo placed over the graves of
their shipmates who were mur
dered. The Secretary of the Navy has
received a cable message from
Captain Schley, saying that as
there is no further necessity for
the presence of the Baltimore in j
Valparaiso, she sailed on the 11th
instant for San Francisco to be
docked and scraped. The York
town is the only United States war
ship in Valparaiso, but she will bo
joined shortly by the Boston from
Tho ex-Emperor Dom Pedro was
interred with full royal honors at
Lisbon on the 12th instant. All
the officials of the foreign diplo
matic corps, except tho Brazilian
embassy, accompanied tho remains
to Pantheon. While the funeral
cortege was moving, all the bolls
in the city tolled, and vessels in
the harbor fired a royal salute and
displayed flags at half-mast.
Matters in Russia are daily
growing worse. The famine funds
are frettered away by local auth
orities, grand remedial measures
exist only on paper, complaints of
enormous expenditure on the army
and navy are taken advantage of
by those unfriendly to the govern
ment, and ''the whole empire seems
to be a seething mass of discon
tent." A dispatch dated London De
cember 11th states that Lord Salis
bury has re opened negotiations
with the French Foreign Minister
for a settlement of the Newfound
land fisheries dispute. It is suid
that in return for the surrender of
all French rights in Newfound
land, Lord Salisbury wishes to
cede to France the Harvey islands
(?) and the colony of Lagos.
Lord Dufferin has been appoint
ed British Ambassador to France
in place of the late Lord Lytton.
Justin McCarthy, as sole survi
ving trustee of the "Paris Fund,"
has been served with a writ on the
suit of Timothy Harrington, Red
mond et al., wLo claims that the
funds are subject to a trust in fa
vor of themselves and other mem
bers of the League. They request
the removal of McCarthy from the
trusteeship. Mrs. Parnell is in
cluded in tho writ as a cotdefend
ant and administratrix of her hus
band's estate.
Disagreements have arisen be
tween the Government of Brazil
and the Governor of the State of
Bio de Janeiro., who refuses to re
sign at the request of the Govern
ment. It is now expected that a
military governor will Reappointed
to the State and that martial law
will bo proclaimed.
Tho principal news brought by
the Australia on Tuesday morning
all refers to repeated outrages per
petrated in the streets of Val
paraiso upon tho persons of Ameri
can citizens. Tho worst offenders
appear to be tho police themselves,
who are screened by the inferior
magistrates, while their superior
officers and even tho Government
itself seem unable or unwilling to
make reparation for the past, or
guarantee protection to Americans,
or good behavior of their own
officials for the future.
The 6tory told at San Diego by
the engineer of tho American ship
Keweenaw, which called at Val
paraiso on the way from New York
to San Francisco, proves the exist
ence of a state of affairs in the
Chilean Beaport which could not be
tolerated by the government or tho
representatives of any' civilized na
tion able and willing to protect its
citizens while peacefully engaged
in their lawful business in a foreign
Patrick Shields, the engineer,
states that ho went on shore on
leave, and on his way back to the
water front was stopped by two
policemen, who, after speaking a
few words which he did not under
stand, arrested and took him to a
jail, where he was subjected to
brutal ill treatment and set to work
to clean horseB and wash ont tho
place. At last, when nearly ex
hausted by hunger and blows, ho
was thrust out of tho jail-yard, and
he endeavored to find his way to
the American Consulate. Ho lay
down on a rock for tho night, and
the next morning, while asking his
way to the Consulate, was again
huBtled, beaten and dragged off to
tho prison. Being repeatedly re
fused an opportunity of communi
cating with tho Consul, he made
several effortB to escape, but was
overtaken and cruelly beaten. At
length ho got away and reached
tho Consulate more dead than
alive, and was sent on board tho
Baltimore and put under the treat
ment of the surgeon.
This is one ground of complaint,
others .are tho posting of Chilean
police agents in tho immediate
vicinity of the American Legation,
and tho attempted arrest of tho
Minister's son, Mr. Frank Egan.
The Argentine Minister to Chile
will call a meeting of all tho for
eign ministers to draw tho atten
tion of the Chilean Government
towards tho action of the municipal
authorities of Valparaiso in main
taining police surveillance over
tho American legation.
On this subject tho Call remarks:
"American blood has been shed by
a mob and thus far no disposition
has been evinced by the shed
ders to make atonement. The
calm and temperate remonstrance
of this Government is met with
equivocation and evasion, both
couched in language to which the
epithet truculent will apply. A
strain is being put on tho authori
ties at Washington which with all
their pacific instincts, they can
hardly resist very long."
Meanwhile Secretary Tracy
hopes for the best and behoves that
the difficulties would yet bo sot
tied satisfactorily. He says: "I do
not anticipate war with Chile.
The Yorktown is the only United
States man-of-war in Chilean
waters at present. Tho Boston
however is on her way there and
should reach Valparaiso this
If indeed Chile intends to force
a quarrel, upon the United States it
will be an instance of that madness
which precedes destruction.
A fire occurred in Santiago on
the 20th inst., resulting in damage
to tho extent of 800,000 pesos. A
plague of locusts has attacked Val
divia. A Philadelphia despatch of De
cember 21 says: " Walt Whitman
is gradually sinking." It was ex
pected that though he might sur
vive the night he would not last
through the next day.
Since the attempt to kill Eussell
Sage by dynamite, threatening let
ters, demanding money on pain of
annihilation of the whole house
hold, have been received, and on
the 21st inst. a man, crazy or crim
inal, or both, went to the house,
obtained eutrance to the hall and
proclaimed that he had "come to
kill Mr. Sage." The servant kept
the man on parley for a minute or
(two, when Mrs. Sago, coming down
stairs from her husband's sick
room, questioned tho man,' who re
peated that ho would have 2500
or blow the place to pieces, when
the brave little lady took tho ruf
fian by tbo throat, half throttled
him and thrust him clear out
through tho door, which she slam
med behind him. The family doc
tor arriving a minuto afterwards
sent off his carriage for the police,
and the household was placed
under their protection; but the man
who entered tho house and threat
ened destruction has not been

London on the 21st inst., at tho
age of 83. The late duke graduated
from Cambridge with almost tho
highest honors ovcrachioved, being
senior classic and second wrangler.
He sat in parliament fur several
years as member for his university
and other constituencies, till he

Another Letter From the Iieper
Mr. Editor: What is tho causo
of tho sudden interest taken in tho
affairs of the Sottlomunt? If tho
champions of the leper cause aro
sincere, tho circumstances aro sus
picious. What I know from past
experience is, that this settlement
has often been used before elections
as a "political lover" by those who
have an ax to grind, so I think our
would-bo champions are of that
sort. I'll begin to take stock for
what they aro worth. Does " Ola
Hawaii" think that when tho mail
does not go overland any moro, but
landed direct from tho steamer, tho
resolutions passed by the Anglican
Synod aro solved? Does "Ola Ha
wan mean to separate mild cases
of leprosy from advanced ones, by
moving tho store from Jialawao to
What other trifles "'Ola Ha
waii's " article contains, compared
with tho threo resolutions of tho
Anglican Synod, offered in the in
terest of the unfortunates who are
isolated from tho community; but
immediately all hands, "Equality,"
falls in line, arc ready to pull tho
milk and meat cart through the
Settlement from house to house.
Gentlemen, stick" to your Herou loan
task, and do not be deluded by butterflies.
"Equality" seems to deny tho
stat? of licentiousness in tho Settle
ment, and morality secmB to bo to
him a word of no meaning, so ho
takes his cudgel and hits tho
churches for refusing to repress
the right to choose thoir own way.
Well, "Equality," that means
neither God nor master, or as the
lepers have it: "Aole kanawai o
keia am ; aole kanawai maluna oa
mukou " that seems not very far
from a hell of lawlessness and lust.
I mention "Equality's" ideas just
to show that if ho and BiBhop
Willis wore to como bore to inves
tigate, their reports on morality
would not coincide. All such ro-
ports are mostly of no value, as
they expre--s a private opinion.
Take the laws of God or tbo laws
of the country as a standard, then
you havo an independent report.
I am a leper, an inmate of this
asj'lum for twelve years. What
ever may bo tho opinion of others
about the disease, I, in my own
cfiso and by experience, cannot
doubt of the contagiousness of lep
rosy in these islands; therefore,
in my opinion now, segre
gation is a calamity and a
serious danger to tho com
munity. Should segregation be
come looser, then tho settlement
would be a farce costing tho
taxpayers 3100,000 a year. Segre
gation is not for the benefit of the
lepers, but for the good of the com
munity at large, therefore that
community has to 6ympathizo with
usj but in the right way. Alas;
muny times we poor lepers have
been used as tools and speculated
upon for private end?, and usually
those who have the mouth the ful
lest before the elections havo done
the least for us.
What we need is a Board of
Health that has a backbone, a
board composed of independent
members, who havo time and will
consider our welfare, and who have
tho courage to carry out the re
forms they may find necessary, and
who are not hampered by private
obligations or interest.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for
tho valuable space I have occupied,
I remain, with a promise not to in
trude upon your patience or that
of your readers in tho future,
A. Hutchison.

Wis. This is the opinion of a man
who keeps a drug store, sells all
medicines, comes in direct contact
with the patients and their families,
and knows better than anyone else
how remedies sell, and what true
merit they have. He hears of all
the failures and successes, and can
therefore judge: "I know of no
medicine for Coughs, Sore Throat,
or Hoarseness that had done such ef
fective work in my
Coughs, family as Boschee's
German Syrup. Last
winter a lady called
Hoarseness, at my store, who was
suffering from a very
severe cold. She could hardlj talk,
and I told her about German Syrup
and that a few doses would give re
lief; but she had no confidence in
patent medicines. I told her to take
a bottle, and if the results were not
satisfactory I would make no charge
for it. A few days after she called
and paid for it, saying that she
would never be without it in future as
a few doses had given herrelief."
