Thrilling Acconnt of C(illsu Afirare at the time of Halmnuesdla's Frall. Nsw Youa, Nov. 22.---ome interesting detail regarding Chilian events Immedi ately following the battles which resultedC in the downfall of Balmaoeda and his fol lowers are contained in a private letter re oelved from a young American girl who has been living in Valparaiso and Santiago. The writer has been a memberof the house hold of some of the most influential fam ilies in Chili, including that of Balmaceda himself, and also was for a long time with the Edwards family, who were exiled by Balmaceda and afterward allowed to return to Santiago. The letter is dated Santiago, Sept. 15. Referring to the treatment of the defeated leaders of lalimaceda'sforcesafter the fall of Valparaiso, the writer says: "lt is sickening to even write it, but I saw that mob flght for a bone, a hand, a small piece of flesh, anything out of the cartscon. taining the bodies of the dead generals; and six ofLcers of the junta looked on and smiled. The generals had done nothing but remain loyal to the government. They were not good men, but they led Balma cede's army, and after the battle were found wounded on the field. When the enemy found them and demanded their swords they answered "Generals.never sur render." So they were killed, their bodies stripped, cut to pieces and cabted around Valparaiso. Women, mothers with their daughters, looked on and said "Well done, this is the ve'ngeance of the constitutional party. Catch Balmaceda and roast him." Speaking of the battles of Coneoi and Vinda, )elmhnar, the writer, says: "From the top of the house we could see the tents ' and hear every shct. Thousands of the gov ernment troops passed over to the opposi tion on the morning of the 28th. After the final battle of Placilla, the firing continued an hour and a half, Then it ceased en tirely. Twenty minutes later the remnants of the artillery dashed by as tJlough the devil was after them, and one shouted up to us 'all islost.' We immediately signalled the Baltimore and the San Francisco for help and the marine corps soon arrived. About noon the opposition came in. All the church and fire bells immediately rang a medley. The whole population turned out to meet the invaders. Never was a town so willing to be taken. Ladies pulled the officers from their horses and hugged and kissed them. Pandemonium reigned that night. Next morning in vari ous parts of the city 600 men, women and children were found dead. Balmaceda turned the government over to General Boquedano, who was neutral, sent his wife to Minister Egan and then disappeared. A week ago to-day we returned to Santiago, and as soon as we arrived the Chiliikne shut us up in the house. We telephoned to Eaan and so received assistance. The Chilians wanted to search for Balmaceda but were not allowed to, but they appointed a guard to watch our going and coming.: The guard is still watching. "The last battle occurred Friday. The victorious army forgot its 6,000 dead and wounded at the battle-field, and the fir.t dmbulance. sent was . by freagne~s, oni Sun 1di's mornin. For ten days I aasisted sthe surgeons of the' `Bltimore and the San Francisco. Many wounded I whom I attended did iot know what they had been fighting for. Af ter each battle the government men who had been wounded were all killed. At one time. in Valparaiso, there were 4,000 wounded congressionaliets. When the sol e iere went to bury the dead they first stole their clothes and arms. For a day or two a they dug deep wells, into which the bodies were pitched headlong, but this occasioned 0 too much work, so they piled up the dead. poured kerosene over them and burned s them. Our doctors did noble work, and, :although called Yankee spies, soon won tile good will of every one'" THE INQUIRY IS OVER. Findings in the Matter of the Chillan As sault Will Soon Be Blade Public. New YORK, Nov. 22.-The herald's Val paraiso cable says: Judge Foster has con eluded a secret examination into the assault upon the seamen, of the Baltimore, and the result of the testimony will probably be ob tainable this week. The evidence will show that Rigging was killed by a rifle shot after having been stabbed. Regarding Shields, the fireman, who was subjected to such ill treatment, there will probably be an argu ment over his nationality. It will be al leged that he is not an American citizen, as the ship's articles show he is a native of Ireland. lee Wasn't After a Fight. A good story is told on Richard Harding Davis, associate editor of Harper's Weekly. Davis is a giant in stature as well as in in tellectuality. le is broad'in his opinions, too. as well as across the shoulders. The next week after he had assumed editorial control jointly with George W. Curtis a weekly contemporary came out with a para graph declaring that Davis was not much pumpkins anyhow and that he owed his promotion to the backing of influential friends. The same weekly asserted that there was a writer on another paper, giving his name, who was a head and shoulders above Davis as a writer. The big editor, after reading his contemuorary's opinion of him, put on his hat and coat and hunted his contemporary up. The latter after wards declared that he was certain when Mr. Davis made himself known that a fight was inevitable, and he trembled in his boots. But he didn't come to light, and he said: "I don't care anything about your opinion of me, and my only reason for call ing Is that I want to learn thha name of the man whJu you say is such a genius. ] want to get ltim for Harper's Weltly. He's just the sort of man I want." The name was furnished and the "gonius" is now em ployed on Harper at a remunerative salary. -New York Correspondence St. Louis lie public. (Ouit it 'Frisco.

A member of the committee to-night said that each delegation will probably be al lowed an hour for argument. The commit tee will ballot until a' city has been se lected. The Omaha delegation has chosen Judge C, I. Scott to present their claims. Cincinnati will be represented by ex. Gov. Foraker. Major McKinley is expected to-morrow, and his sup port is expected to materially assist Cincinnati. Minneapolls will be rep resented by a number of speakers, each with.l brief arguraent. The same rule will be followed by Detroit. It is now stated that Senator Hiscook will, present New York's claims, assisted by John I. Fassett and Senator Hawley, of Connecticut. Com mitteeman Campbell, of Illinois, will at the proper time announce Chicago's wil linaness to entertain the convention should the committee decide it is the proper city in which to hold it.
