Chili Bhows a Disposition to Be a Little Less Stlff Neoked. Activity In the Navy Yards at oweeklya sad Mare Island-Ian Franoisoo Is Exilted. Nuw Youn, Nov. &-The Herala Valpa raiso Oable says Oaptaln Sohley and other officers of the Baltimore are indig nant at the yarn about its sinking. There has been no semblance of truth in the rumor, which they know has caused great uneasiness to their families and people generally in the United states. The utmott quiet prevails in the city this morning and in the harbor the Baltimore is lying as peacefully as if she were in home waters. Her stewards for several days past have. gone ashore to do necessary marketing under the protection of a police guard furnished by the intendente,. The captain will to-night grant the officers leave to land. Although as a matt8r of fact no threats have been made nor any signs given that violence would be attempted should the American offioors appear again on the streets of Valparaiso, Capt. Schley, in order to be on the safe side and as an act of pru dence, had stopped night leave untilto-day. Capt. Schley has received a letter asking him to allow the victims of the recent riot to appear before a court of inquiry and tell the judge what they know of the out rageous assault upon them. Capt. Schley replied that he was willing to allow them to - testify upon one condition, that the injured men would first have to be entirely re covered in health and the officer's of the Baltimore must be permitted to be present when their men are testifying. He also agrees to give the court a copy of the in formation sent the United States govern ment regarding the assault. GETTING THE NAVY IN SHAPE. Still There Is No Truth in the Reported Baltimore Aflir. Nnw YonB, Nov. 8.-The Brooklyn navy yard presented an- appearance of activity to-day, witnessed for the first time since the exciting times of the rebellion. The hum and din of workmen on the war ves sels Miantonomah and Atlanta, disturbed the Sabbeath stillness as a body of 400 blue jackets marbhed arossthe yard to divine services. Workmen have been busy day and night for the past week in preparing the two vessels for speedy service at sea. To-day the word of preparation continued it being the first Sunday since the late war when such a thing has happened. There are eighty men at work on the two vessels and all expediton will be used until they are ready for service. The navy yard officials denied the rn mored sinking of the Baltimore at Val paraiso. It was said the officers and crew of the Baltimore exercise the same vigi lance as in war times and the tprpedo nets about the vessel would save her from a sud den attack. The unusual bustle and activr ity at the yard is said not to be due to the reported to sinking of the Baltimore, but it is conceded that the strained relations between this country and Chili has caused the government anxiety to get all the war vessels ready for any possible contingency. WORKING AT MARE ISLAND. List of the Vessels of More or Less Use a That Yard. VALTIWo, Cal., Nov. 8.-There is greal aotivity in the navy yard. Machinists havt been at work all day and to-night on the Mohican. Telegrams have been receiver urging putting the vessel in readiness foi sea at once. All available workmen on the list have been sent for and a thousand men will be at work in a few days. There are now six wooden vessels at Mare island, all of which could be ready for ac tion within five weeks. Each vessel has one eighteen-inch converted muzzle-load ing rifles, and one sixty-pounder breech. loading rifle. The rest of the main bat. tery consists of nine-inch smooth bores. Of these the Omaha has ten, the Swatare and the Mohigan eight, the Adams and the ipeie six, and the Ranger four. Besides these is the monitor Comanche, with two fifteen-inch smooth bores, now ready for sea. All the essels have Hotchkises re volving cannon as a secondary battery. There are also the island six eight-inch con verted rifles, four sixty-pounders, apd a large number of surplus nine-inch smooth bores. San Franclisco Is Excited. SAwFnANArsco, Nov. 8.-The fast that work at the navy yards at Brooklyn and Mare island is being pushed on Sunday and at night has created some excitement here. The defences of San Francisco against an attack from sea are not especially good. There is not a single modern rifle here. Fort Point, at the entrance to the Golden Gate, has about fifty eight-inch muzzle loading rifles, converted from ten-inch smooth bores. On Alcatraz there are eight or nine more. There are also a large number of ten and fifteen-inch smooth bores. It is believed these guns could delay an enemy entering the bay for a considera ble length of time. Only the extreme west ern part of the city, where there are a few valuable buildings could be shelled without coming in close range of these guns. The harbor is well protected by torpedoes of which there are six or seven hundred in position or ready to be placed. There are no auto-Mobile torpedoes in the city. Two modern rifles have been promised to San Francisco next year and two a year after. Encouraging News From Chill. VALPAnAISO.

WAssmawow, Nov, 8.-Secretary Bulk, In his third annual report, estimates the In crease in value of agllcultural product over last year to be not less than $700,000,000. He states that during the first three months of the present lieal year .the exports of 0srees aggregated $76,000000, adding that the indliations now are that the exports this year will largely exceed those of any previous year. He notes the increase by some $28,000,000 in imports of agricultural products during the first ten months under the present law, but emphasizes the fact that the present increase is confned largely to articles not competing with home pro ducts, such as sugar, tea, coffee, etc. At the same time the ohauges in rates have checked importation of products which may be produced at home. Speaking of the inspection of meat for exportation the secretary says: "Our peo ple demand something mote than proteao tion from ommuanticable disease. In most, if not all European couptries, inspectors, according to their reports, freely pass for consumption meat of animals affected with foot and mouth diseases. Pleuro pneu monia and similar diseases, according to the views and customs of this country, must be condemned, but meat for foreign mar kets Is inspected the same as that designed for home consumption. In this respect as in others, we have met the objections raised to American products and not only re moved the eause, but. one beyond what was asked by our oritics. Up to the first of October there was a total of 1,016,614 animals inspected and 63,672 carcasses of hogs were examined mioroscopally, and the total number con demned was but 1,976." The secretary ear nestly recommends that congress be asked to make an appropriation sufficiently large to extend the inspection. He estimates that the losses to pork raisers during the past ten years, owing to the prohibition by foreign countries, aggregate over $?601000, 000. The inspection of imported animals has been rigidly maintained. The result has been to materially reduce the losses re sulting from lack of ventilation, 'over crowding and weak fittings on vessels. The secretary points out that for over a year there has been no well-authenticated case of pleure-pneumonia in Amerlean cattle ex ported to foreign countries. He regards it as highly desirable that the people of for eign countries should be informed of the resources of the United States and the facilities for supplying their wants. He deems it the duty of his department to keep the farmers fully in formed of the market for their goods and just what their value is. He congratulates the country upon the sucoess of the ex periments in extracting sugai from' sorg hum, notes with satisfaction the general and growing interest shown by the classes in thq cause of agriculture, expresses a de sire for closer co-operation between the various edacational forces in the country for the advancement of practical agricul ture, and urges that the slender thread con necting the department with the agricul tural colleges and stations be strengthened. In reviewing the work of the division of chemistry with reference to the adultera tion of food, the !seroterry pmpasize suppe cially the adUaierttioins of coffee, w.llh lrec found to extend to a large percentage, not only of ground coffee, but of the coffee bean, Wholly artificial beans having been introduced into the market. In a large measure artificial beans are imported, and the secretary urges that such importations, as well as their manufacture and use in this country, be absolutely prohibited. Touching the experiments in producing rain, he states briefly that they have been made, but he has no data yet at hand which would justify him in offering any conolu sions on the subject.

Sherman Must Stand in or Give Up His Seat to Fire Alarm Foraker. It the Scheme eneceeds All Will Be HaS mony to the Party of Great Moral Ideas Cowaams, Ohio, v. &--Perhaps the most important action contemplated by the new legislature is to elect a successor to United Stat Senator Calvin S. Brice, the democrat who was chosen as Senator Payne's ucceseor by the last legislature. The praopoeiion to elect a successor to Brice hs been discussed quietly for some time, and the republican managers have given it serious consideration. It is looked upon with more favor becaose it promises an easy solution of the Sherman-Forsker senatorial problem. In order to carry it into effect the Foraker crowd will compel John Sherman to become a party to it un der the threat of losing his own seat if he refuses. Although Briee's term as United States seeator began last March, he ha net. yet been sworn into office. The plan is to have Sherman object to Brice qualifying a senator on the ground that the latter is not a resident of Ohio. Pending the consideration of this question by the senate the Ohio legislature will cor vaene, pass a resolution declaring that a va. eancy exists in the office of United States senator by reason of Brie's ineligibility and proceed to elect another person to that vacancy. That other person will be Joseph Benson Foraker, better known as the "fire alarm" statesman. Armed with credentials, Foraker will immediately procesed to Washington, and it is believed that, owing to the small margin of republican suprem aoy in the senate, the majority at Sher man's beck and bidding will reject Brice and give the seat to the "fire alarm." As soon as this is done the legislaturewill elect John Sherman to be his own enocessor ig the United States senate. 'I he plan is satisfactory in all respeots. Brice is tot only got rid of but a bl*oy conflict between Sherman and Foraker .s averted and both go to the United States senate. The Ohio republicans, with ;or. aker in the senate, would feel thatthe union was safe, even if there should beiR democratio president elected next year, If, however, Sherman declines to go into th.e proposed plot, Foraker will defeat him and become Sherman's successor in the United State senate. Indeed, the Foraker people startesdi.,leaenatorial fight befote-a l the legislative returns had been received. The Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette last week, in a double-leaded editorial under the heading "Senator Foraker," declared its preference for the "fire alarm" as Sher man's a auccessor. The Columbus Dispatchb followed in the same vein in its issue of the same afternoon. Other capers will fall into line, and soon the Foraker combination will be ringing its bells all over the state. All the bluff and blaster are with the fol lowers of Foraker, and they declare already that sixty out of the eighty-six republican members-elect will vote for their favorite. The Hamilton county delegation, thirteen in all, is solid for Foraker. John Sherman thought that the ten members from Cuya hoga county were pledges to him, but For akor is claiming five of them. Although the opinion generally obtains that Foraker has the best of the chances to be Sherman's successor, it is thought by a few well posted individuals that Sherman's strength is greater than is generally under stood. It is a significant fact that the re publicans carried every close and doubtfol legislative district Tuesday, and all of the successful candidates are supporters of Sherman. The big republican majority in the legislature is favorable to Siherman, but the Foraker backers will force the Mans field statesman into the scheme to freeze out Brice, if it can be done, and, failing in that, the throat-cutting will begin. Be tween Sherman and Foraker it will bh a merry war, which the democrats 0I1' greatly enjoy. SA TYRANNICAL JUDGE. He Incarcerates a Leading Lawyer in the "Sweat- Box."

The jury had convicted his client, and Colonel Gants rose to make a motion in the case. The court overruled the motion at once. Colonel Gantt attempted to say something more, when the court stopped him with a threat of the "sweat-box." The colonel persisted in being heard in the interest of his client, when the judge ordered counsel to the "sweat-box." Col. Gantt was ao cordingly taken there and remained half an hour. He was then released on petition of a member of the bar, but still refused to make any apology to the court, saying that be was simply doing his duty to his client. Nevertheless he was let go. When silenced by the judge he was trvi*a to cite a su preme court decision showing his motion to be admiseable. The affair has created the utmost indignation among members of the bar, who have frequently suffered from Judge Unbose's arbitrary rulings. At a meeting of the bar a committee was ap pointed to report to a subsequent meeting, when it is believed that action will be taken looking to an impeachment of Judge Du bose.
