SAimrrro, chill, Jan, 24.--The excitement over the imbroglio with the United States is growing rapidly. The Valparaiso inci dent is the prevailing topic of conversation afid the probable results of war are eagerly disossed. While 4t oannot be said the ex. citement has reached the stage of "war fever,"' yet the natural ; martial instincte of the Chilian people are greatly aroused. It was definitely asserted to-day that Senor Periera, the Chilian minister of foreign affairs. has sent Minister Egan a formal notification that the Chilian government will reply to-morrow to the note containing the ultimatum of the United States gov ernment. It is also learned that the Brit ish minister to Chili has received instruec tions from his government to offer the ser vices of his government as mediator to pre vent war between Chili and the United States. TILE MESSAGAII GOING IN TO.DAY. Bnt There Is No Probability of Hasty Action Being Taken. WAesmeoTOel Jn. 24.-The expected mes sage of President Harrison on the Chilian situation, with the correspondence on the subject, will be sent to congress to-morrow. Such is the intention of the president this evening, and unless the case suddenly as sumes some new phase, requiring an addi tion to the message, it will be laid before both honses to-morrow afternoon. The probability is strongly against the matter being precipitately taken up for considera tion by either branch of congress, or of any discussion of the subject immediately on receipt of the messace. The usual formal course will doubtless be followed by refer ring the message and accompanying corre spondence to the appropriate committee. Pending consideration, in the committee the message and cornespondenee will be printed. The disposition of the most in fluential men is averse to any unusual haste in consideration of the subject. The Post to-morrow will say: There is good reason to fear that Chili's failure to promptly accede to the demand of our ultimatum will lead to something more than the mere breaking off of diplomatic relations. President Harrison, it is strongly hiated, will inform congress in his message that this government intends to force the ultimatum by means of a naval demonstra tion and such other. measures as are re quired. Congress will be asked to sanction everything involved in this undertaking. Commander Dickens, of the United States navy, who has had wide experience with Bouth Americens, thinks nothing short of punishment will imbue Chili with prorer respect for this government. "The rank rank end file of the people are ignorant of our resources and confident they can whip us," he save. "Nothing but actualforce viill convince the Chilians they are not strong enough to insult us with impunity. The smallest reparation we can demand is that Chili should offer an apology, pay indem nity and salute our flag. Capt. Evans showed the right spirit in threatening to retaliate if his gig was stoned again. If a British commander had been in his place the authorities would not have been given twenty-four hours in which to apologize, with the alternative of having the city shelled, and his government would have supported him in it." Several members of congress expressed themselves hopeful and confident there would be no war, though they say if such a state of affairs should be brought about, and the dignity and honor of the country be at stake, there should be no hesitation on the part of the government to main tain it. Representative Holman in an interview says: "There is no doubt of our ability to conquer Chili, but the principal thing tobe taken into consideration is the effect the war would have upon other Souith American nations. In the course of time you would see a close alliance between the countries of South America should this government wage war against Chili." In closing Mr. Holman said: "The - administration will receive the unauslified support of the dem ocratic side of the house in any measures necessary to uphold the government's honor. There will be no question of party at all." Representative Hopkins, of Illinois, said to-day: "I do not think President Harri son's message will call upon congress for declaration of war, but practically it will suguest such a course dependent upon Chili apologizing. I expect as a result of the message a joint resolution will be passed by the house and the senate declaring that hostilities shall te commenced at the end a certain period unless in the meantime Chili shall have made such reparation as this country shall deem satisfactory." Nuns of the government officers had ay news for the press to-night. Neither had Minister Monit. The Chilian situation was the prinaical subject of conversation here to-day. AS To ~G AN'S RECALL. No rrecedeut for Such, a Course at This Siage or Negotiations. CuecAno, Jan. 24.-The Inter-Ocean's Washlirgton spaeia says, regarding the re port that Chili demands MinisterEgan's re call: "It is doubtful whether there is any precedent for demanding the recall of a minister at so critical astage in the negotia tions between the two countries. Lord Sackville West was given his passports by the United States, but there was no dispute pending between his governrment and ours at the time, and it was at the suggestion of the British goverunnent itsilf that President Cleveland took that course instead of de manding the minister's recall by his own home goveramenrt. A demarnd at thitl time or the presentation of pnassports to Egan would in the opinion of dir lcmrrts here, be immnediately be followed tby the dismissal of Minister Monts end the severance of diplematic relations between the coun tries, If in the meansuime no iin timatlon of en intention to apolo. gino for the asertult on the Baltimora's enilors was received from Chili, a declara tion of war woulrl not be long in comning. 'lbs Chilian government has waited three months an nuerwer a very searnest request from the United 8tates for are eriology end reparation, and the president undoubtedly will permit thit governnment~to wait before so ceewer will be, made to the suggestion that Egen is not en rirserrble person." On the present situation, the Inter Ocean's correspondent saps: "Illis evident the admisistratlon is satiesfed Chili will make no soswsr to the demernd for apology or reparation.

ProminenttMen Express Hopes of Nettling Matters Without Wasr. Naw Yasio , Jan. 24.--The Herald's Val paraiso correspondent cables-. The ultima tum of the United States has been handed to the Chilian government by mhinstesr haen. The prorme p sending of this ulti matum, instead of an order to Egan that he return here, has surprised the Chilian gov ernment, and it is rumored taet President Moutt, who is at a bathing- re sort, has been asked to retun at once to Santiago andconsult with the 'cabinet' and the council of state in regard to the matter. Eduardo Maeta and Judge Alfonso, both of whom are members of the council of state, when informed of the nature of the ultima tum sent by Blaine, expressed considerable urprlise, and, without formally committing themselves, both agreed it would be a spie not toat now withdraw Matte's letter. They ex press the' hope that at the meeting of the council of state in conjuhntion with the cabinet to-morrow a peaceful solution of the dieiemnlty might ho arranged. Judge Alfonso, who is well known to Secretary Blaine, said any war between the two countries 'would be exceedingly foolish, and he was fully convinced the United States did not wish to humiliate Chili, Don Carlos Walker Martinez to night expressed deep regrets that the Chi oan cabinet had brought matters to such a crisis and evinced strong hope for a peace ful settlement. He has no doubt the senti ment of the Chiliancongress will hold these views. During last week, in spits of the show of friendship toward Egan by Pierra, minis ter of foreign affairs, and other members of the Chilian cabinet, events have come to light exhibiting surprising duplicity. ogan was asked last weak by the Chilian tfouigu office to "recognize" the fact tr'at'q ei had accepted a rennsciation ofm:Mal atsre - oelar letter by the Chilian, government tJ± so-called renunciation seing founnded~ppp the explanation that thesoS's mAemei was a domestic dowuuusrt,'nd it was tOere fore improper for rhlnngii governlet officials to commetit' iL'kie declined to acknowledge `thel"ie ruelation" upon ground stated by-ga' riie"nall wi~w'ithout official informeast' being an ingtoon.

Instead of being. en instruction to 'Egan to return 'home, it in structed the Amer' cau minister to deliver the ultimatud..f the United States to the Chilian antholities. Minister Egan is instructed,, if the demand of the idle matue is not complied with o it once, to sver diplomatic relations with the Chilian government. The Chilian public is not aware of the gravity of the present situation, nor does it know the American ultimatum has been re ceived. Working Night and Day.

THIS GIRL HAD NERVE. She Cowed a Sob and Saved a Prisoner Front Lynching. WILLESTON, Neb., Jan. 24.-A blood thirsty mob was cowed here the other even ing by the bravery of a girl. In the jail is a man who was caught murdering a trav eler for his money, and the people decided that they could not wait until the law had run its course, and determined to take the matter into their own hands and lynch the fellow. The sheriff received warning of the intended lynching, and collected four deputies and announced his determination to guard the jail at all hazards. At 12 oclock at night the summons came for him to open the doors and give up the prisoner or the jail would be burned down.

Mr. Stamp has considerable knowledge of the effects of Chinese immigration, having been a member of the house oammittee of the last congress that visited the Pacific coast and conducted an investigation into the subject. The bill is lengthy. He in vites criticism of any features of the meas ure from persons interested in the subject. The principal features are as follows: It is made unlawful for a period of twenty years after the passage of the act for any Chinese laborers, whether subjects of the Chinese empire of any other foreign government, including those now here and who may hereafter leave the country and attempt. to return thereto, and those who have never been here. or having been here have departed therefrom, to come within or across the bound aries of the United States or land or re main at any port or place within the United States. This provision applies to Chinese laborers who come to the United States. for the purpose of transit only, as well as to those who come for any other purpose. The coming of any Chinese pestons, other than laborers, is also absolutely prohibited except as hereafter provided for. The words "*laborer of laborers" are construed to mean both skilled and unskilled labor ers. All Chinese, other than laborers, de siring to pass through, or over any portion of the United States in transit or to visit the country temporarily for any purpose, will be required to obtain a permit from the United States consul at the port of de parture, specifying the object of the visit and containing a personal descrip tion of themselves and those accompany ing them. Any Chinese merchant now residing in the United States and doing business of which the sales amount to at least $10,000 per year, desiring tempo rarily to visit abread will be allowed to re turntin the United States. provided he es tablishes satisfactory evidence of the above facts before departure, Nothing contained in the act is to prevent the coming into this country of Chinese cersons duly accredited as ministers plenipotentiary, embassadors or other diulomatie representatives, consuls general, consular and commercial agents and other officers of the Chinese or other governments traveling upon business of their governments, with their immediate families and body and house servants. The master of any vessel knowingly bringing into the country any Chinese persons in violation of the law will be liable to pun ishment, and every vessel whose master knowingly violates any provision of the act will be deemed forfeited to the United States. It is made the duty of all Chinese persons now in the United States to register before an officer of the United States within five months after the passage of the act and to apply for a resident certificate grantina them permission do remain within the United States. Persona found thereafter unprovided with certificate as required by the act will be liable to deportation unless they can show that by some unavoidable causes they were unable to procure the cer tificate, and that they were residents of the United States at the time of the passage of the act. It is made unlawful for common carriers to transport or for any one to em ploy any Chinaman who does not first ex hibit his certificate of registration as re quired by the act. When a Chinaman is convicted of any crime by a United States court, or of a vio lation of the provisions of this not, and ordered deported to China, it may be law ful to order and direct that the convict pay a fine not exceeding $500 and costs of con viction and deportation. In case of the failure to do so, he will be compelled to labor upon some government work long enough to satisfy the fine and costs at the rate of $1 per day and rations. The pen alty for the commission of crimes against the United States by Chinese persons )except those of a cepital nature of the first degree) shall be deportation to China. Any Chinese person found entering the United States by way of a contiguous for eign country shall be deemed as having come dhioct from China and be deported, unless he claims to be and produce roeson able proof that he is a citizen of snch con tiguous foreign territory. No state or United States court is hereafter to admit Chinese to citizenship. The States of the House.

Even so shrewd a woman as Gail Hamilton was so com pletely deceived that she recommended her friends to invest their money in it. Its career began in 1882. Invitations were ex tended to unmarried women of small means to invest in the bank, no more than $1,000 and not lose than $200 being received. No married woman or man could become a de positor. In return they were to receive eight per cent per month, payable quar terly, the firat payment of interest to be made in advance. At the end of the year, it will be seen, the depositor of $100 would receive in interest $104, and for some time many persons did receive this income. To all inquiries made by inquisitive women came a reply that a number of be nevolent Quakers, wishing to benefit women of humble means, had made Krs. Howe the custodian of this charity, and that they, were paying the interest out of their own pockets without depending on the money deposited to make any return. Women in the highest circles of society in Boston and other cities fairly begged to be permitted to participate in the benefits. Large gums of money poured into the lap of Mrs. Howe. The swindle was finally exposed. Mrs. Howe was arrested and convicted of ob taining money under false pretenses, the wealthy Quakers being myths. She was sentenced to three years in the house of correction and served her sentence. After her release she opened a bank again, but failed. She left Boston for Chicago. Get ting into trouble with the authorities, she drifted back to Boston. At the height of her career she lived sumptuonsly, and had horses, carriage and servants. She was very deaf, almost blind, and gave no utSi cations of the great ability necessary to plan and successfully carry on a great swindle. It was this fact that led to the belief that she was the tool of designing persons. THE RUSSIAN REFUGEES. Formation of the Helena Society to (tender Them Aid.
