It is not probable that anything more
will be heard of the Chilian ditlioulty
until the full correspondence between
the countries is made public. When
the trouble is satisfactorily settled, and
we believe this will result, the detailed
history of the affair will be made known.
Several things are to be remembered un
til this conclusion is reached. Chili had
barely reached the end of a most disas
trous internecine war when the killing
of these sailors occurred. The final de
feat of Balmaceda's forces left the coun
try in a feverish and unsettled state.
Even at this time the government holds
the reins with an uncertain grasp and
finds it an extremely difficult matter to
obtain good order in the cities. The
situation is like that in some of our
southern cities immediately after the
close of the rebellion, except that it is
worse by reason of the more paseionate
and restless nature of the Chilians.
Under these conditions several Ameri
can sailors are attacked and killed by
a mob of irrepressible people in the city
of Valparaiso and, from information
gathered, it was a most atrocious and in
excusable outrage. But all informa
tion is not known. Did these sailors
commit ants which would afford an ex
cuse for mob violence? Did the police
in this distracted city endeavor to pro
tect these sailors and will the new Chil
ian government promptly investigate
the whole affair? We believe the fullest
investigation will be had and will ter
minate in an adjustment of the difficul
ties so far as the governments are con
cerned. With the present condition of
affairs at least, the Chilian government
will meet us more than half way to
avoid the probability of a war which
would retard Chilian prosperity for
many years. They know better than
any one what a war with the United
states means and having gone through
the vicissitudes of one war they are
not likely to go out of their way for an
Without drawing a parallel it may be
well to recall that not many months
have passed since the Italian govern
ment demanded reparation for the lives
of several of her citizens killed by a mob
in New Orleans after they had been
tried for murder and acquitted by an
American jury. The dispute was set
tied in a manner satisfactory to both
governments. Furthermore, in the dis
cussion of the present difficulty it may
be also well to remember that in no
country on earth does mob law prevail
with such unguarded violence and with
the sanction of as many reputable peo
ple as in the United States. Not long
ago, in the great and prosperous city of
Omaha, a crpwd of people broke into a
jail, snatched a criminal from his cell
and hung him over a trolley wire in a
leading street. Hardly a week passes
without a lynching in the southern or
western states. The fact that there are
honest courts where fair trials may be
had does not deter the citizens in some
parts of this enlightened republic from
assuming that they are better and
mightier than the law.
Now, then, three American citizens
have been killed in the far away city of
Valparaiso, in a country turn to pieces
by war among her own people, and at
this time no one outside the state de
partment knows from authority how the
affair occurred or what led to it. Until
these matters are determined it would
be comforting to enjoy a respite of peace
from the war howlers.
THe following tickets have been nom
inated for next year: Cleveland and
Boies and Blaine and McKinley. Prob
ably no quartetto, so far as personal I
strength goes, would be better received
by the respective parties. But nothing
is more improbable than Blaine and Mc
Kinley running t)gether on the issue of
protection. Blaine has already smashed
one silk hat because of the McKinley
bill and he is not likely to take off an
other hat before that fetish.
Ma. Tuos. A. EomaoN ini a recent in
terview advanced the theory thatevery
atom of living matter is imbued with in
telligence and that the intelligence of
man is the sum of the intelligences of the
atoms of which lie is composed. To get
down from this soaring to every-day life,
we offer in rebuttal a ruinor going about
that there are iany men to (lay without
an atom of intelligence.

A Card From Mr. Wade.
To THE INDEPENDENT: An article in yes
terday's Journal deserves some notice on
account of its apparent lack of truth and
on account of the animne of the writer, ex
hibited in every line of this little speech.
Mr. McPhee was lost but little over a month
ago-not six months ago. "There are men
who believe McPhee skipped." He 'had
better have used She singular number there.
7 here could not be more than one such be
liever. The terms "treasule " and "non
payment," etc., are used to cast the reflse
tion that this man has probably taken away
the funds; and the still further implication
appears that the company ao accomplices
with him in this way of defrauding people.
But not one dollar of the company's money
is missing, and furthermore nothing of
value is missing except the man himself.
"If alive and well it would be gratifying
to his friends to know it." I don't under
stand how the reporter draws this conclu
sion. He may have talked with some one
of them, but his article does not indicate
such a fact.
Now, as to the company "charging for
meals," I may be allowed to say one word
by way of probable excuse for this malic
ions statement. I am not a member of the
company, nor ever was, nor have I seen any
member of the company since reading that
remarkable statement, but I was employed
there two weeks tnd know something about
this "charging for meals." The company's
boarding house fed during these two weeks
probably twenty men not employee, but
men who were going to other camps or corn
ing to thin camp to seek employment) and
the matter became so serions that the su
perintendent, in my hearing, spoke to the
president and the general manager about
the matter, and it was determined then and
there that in justice to the stockholders
this thing should be stopped, and accord
ingly the men employed at the boarding
honey were instructed to charge every one
not an employe.
The company may not know that the
boarding steward failed to discriminate
even in the cases where men voluntarily
gave their services in search of the missing
mali. Who can be blamed fornotdiscrimi
natmg in such a case? Shall the steward
call the superintendent and the latter call a
meeting of the company-many of them
not even In the state, or shall we be more
sensible and say these men did right by
obeying ordere?
'Co close allow me to say that I have
known John MePhee for eleven years and
I am sufficiently acquainted with him to
say with great assrnance that he has not
left voluntarily, as meanly insinuated in the
Journal, but he has either become insane
from fatigue and excitement and in deepera
tion wandered away, or more probably has
become exhausted in his fruitless effort to
extricate himself from those dense woods
and perished from hunger and cold.
It is to be deprecated that such occur
cnces as this con not be consi.iered too
eaoied on account of the attendant sorrow
to be thus trumpeted in our newspapers,
but some people seem to regard nothing as
aicred and art accordingly. With respect
to the maligned company and sorrow for
the bereaved wife, I am, very respectfully.
