Ir-. 7 i -. . 4:O:. XX ... L-N •4 HEL.,ENA, MONTANA, TH-URSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 28, 1892. PRICE I. ~VE CAiNT~. Further Partioularb o ~the Reply ao Chill to tie President's Ultimatum. Full Appology and Emphatio Die. claimer of Sympathy With Insult or Aseault. Senor Perrlera's Answer Is alidto Be a ModeliState Paper, Clear and Uaequivocat WAePINOTOW, Jan. 27.-The first cable message received by the president from Minister Egan was not in all respects satis factory. It was lacking n fullness and there were many things in it requiring addi tional elucidation. Another and later dis; patch has been received and its contents are, sch as to leave nothing for congress to do in regard to 'he president's message. It bnot only confirms all that was said in the Aqeociated press dispatches, but is couched in the most friendly terms. The effect of the dispatch received is that the charge that the Chilins entertain a feeling of en mity toward the United States and to its flag and uniform is utterly false. The dis patch then says that in order to show that a friendly feeling was entertained by the Chilians for the United States, and as an evidence of their desire to do all that is possible, they are willing to leave the affair to the United States supreme court. Blount, chairman of the house committee of foreign relations, in speaking of Chili's latest despatch said: "The whole matter is settled and nothing but the preliminaries remain to be arrangeo. The apology made by Chili is as complete as it could possibly be. It speaks with the most profound re gret of the attack on the Baltimore's sailors; declares a sincere friendship for the United States and profound respect for our flag and uniform. "They speak freely of the presence of the American men-of-war in their ports during the revolution and the friendly at titude of our officers and men at that time. They say that in entertaining the feeling of friendship which they do toward the United States it would be impossible for them to sympathize with or to feel more profound regret for the attack upon the United States sailors. "As evidence of their perfect good faith, they say they propose, in connection with a complete and humble apology, that the matter of* reparation be referred to the United States supreme court. It is a com plete and abject apologygy, and settles the matter." The manner of Blount showed the pleasure he felt at the news o$rmmunicated to him by Secretary Blaine, with authority for him (Blonnt) to repeat it.to such per sons as he saw fit to make it known. Mo. Creary, (Ky.) another member of the com mittee, when seen, said: "Everything is much brighter now." Hiltt, republican member of the committee, said: "The situation looks a great deal better and the dispatches received puts the trouble in a very satisfactory shape." Other members of the house who were seen showed the feeling of relief that is felt at the outcome of a trouble. In the senate also, the members of the foreign relations committee pave evidence of satisfaction. The committee had placed a padlock of ab solute secrecy on all its proceedings, but it was evident they were glad that from them had been taken the grave responsibility of declaring war, and that a practical solution of the controversy had been reached con sistent with the dignity and self respect of the United States. Senator Hoar said it was a subject of much congratulation to the American people and he thought the matter now ended. Developments in the Chilian contro versy since the president's ultimatum have been a series of surprises, of which that of to-day was not the least. When the first news of the de cision of the Chilian government to prao tically concede all the United States asked was received in an Associated press cable message from Santiago, it indicated such a complete change on the part of the Chil ians that, while there was hope it was true, many persons were hardly able to credit it. A later dispatch not only confirmed this message, but each new development added to it some feature, ilaking stronger the statement originally made. Egan's dispatch received yesterday, in addition to what was already known. indi cated that Chili is willing to apologize for the Matta note, which had been one of the worst features of the controversy. What Egan said, however, was not in all resiects satisfactory. Although in advance of its transmission to congress official informa tion is unobtainanle, it is believed that Egan's message was one transmitting the Chilian government's reply and giving the substance of the concessions made. For this reason Egan may not have been full enough in his statements tobthoroughly make clear the full force of Perriera's answer. The dispatch containing the reply of Senor Perriera, Chilian minister of foreign affairs, is very long and the trans lation was not completed until to-day. It is said to be a frank and splendidly written document, breathing throughout a spirit of friendship and good will to the United States. It is said to be clear and unequivocal. Nothing whatever is left of the Matte note, which is not only withdrawn but apologized for. The most sincere regret is expressed for the Baltimore incident and the offer to refer it to the supreme court of the United Stales is said to be made ne an illustratiop of the the friendly feeling of the Chilians toward the United States, Expressions of cordial ity toward this country are profuse. It is said the whole tone of the document is ap parently so sincere, friendly and manly. as to leave the matter in such shape that it is hardly possible to fail to bring the two countries closer together and result in amicable adjustmentof the whole difficulty. The dispatch is especially clear and vigor onus in repelling the charge of hostility on the part of the Chilians to the American flag and American uniformc. In effect, it says: "Chili hate the American uniform? No! Too well does she remember that flag and uniform in her ports and harbors, aiding her in her struggle for indepen'dence." I Referring to Chili's struggle years ago to achieve independence.1 TII. CLOUDS ROLLED BY. In tihe Oph,,ion of Mr. ilount and Other Oentlmanen. WVAslraoToN, Jan. 27.-The prospect of war, it is thought, is now over, and while considerable remnamp to be done before the controversy in its entirety will be closed and simply a matter of history, yet the affair Ia in such shape as to bring the two nations closer together and make further piocoedings a matter of comparatively easy adjustment. "You mean that the apology was ample?" asked Congressman springer, who was among a little coterie of congress men gathered around during Blount's statement. "No, I don't say that in so aiany words," said Blount, "I mean simply thato far as the whole question is con earned there is complete compliance with outwshes as expressed lnstheo final de mast of the state department, I cannot qlote the exact language of the dispatch, lte translation of which I will say was shown me by Mr. Blaine. It covered six or: seven pages of foolscap, and there was expressed terms of great regret. In deed, the whole spirit of it was regret at the Baltimore occurrence and ut ter disavowal of any ill feeling toward the Amerigan uniform. To give you a sample it says: 'To illustrate the feeling we enter tain towards the American republic we are willing to submit the whole matter of the lBaltimore affair to that august tribunal, your supreme court.' I do not quote perhaps, the exact words of the dispatch, but the effect of it. It says: 'It is not necessary to submit it to the supreme court, but in order to show our feeling towards you we are willi subintit it to your court.' They witidraw their request for. Minister Egan's withdrawal and speak of the Matta Note as an error of judgment, and are will ing to meet American demands." "But what about the apology we de manded?" again interrupted a member. "I cannot say that it is made in specific form." replied Mr. Blount, "but the whole argumentation and declaration of feeling and regret, the action taken by the gov ernment to have the guilty parties arrested, all these illustrations are given as to their feelings, in the attempt to exhaust the idea that there was any hostility towards us. Mr. Blaine seemed much elated over the dispatch and to regard it as assurance of the end of the controversy. While the apology may not be put in diplomatic language the dispatch is just asn full and complete in its regret of the whole affair as could be." Turning to Springer, Blount said: "I tell you the bottom is out of it. That is all. The administration would not have a straw to stand on if it continued to make demands with that disuatch in its face. But I have no idea they are going to force it any further. No one can read that entire correspondence without feeling the utmost sympathy at the almost humiliating atti tude of the Chilian government. Mr. IBlaine informed me that the president would send Chili's answer in to-day or to morrow." Cable (Ill.), member of the foreign af fairs committee, said: "I am glad at the satisfactory turn matters have taken, and think it now time for the great American nation to be generous. Principle is what we were after, and that having been con ceded, we will be too liberal, I am sure, to impose undue financial penalties on our already bankrupt sister republic." Private Secretary Halford said to-night that additional correspondence will be sent to congress to-morrow. It will be compar atively brief, not aggregating more than about 2,000 words. When the Message Was Received. Was.ncoroN, Jan. 27.-There has been much speculation as to the time the ad ministration received the first intimation of Chili's apology and concession, and some members of congress even hazard the statement that the president received the reply before the executive message was communicated to congress Monday. This false impression threatened to become gen er41 ipisome quarters to-night. Chairman Blount seeks to correct it. "As I under stood it," said he, "the dispatch from Chili was received by the administration early Tuesday morning. At 10:80 o'clock I had information from the president by a confl dential meesage that a dispatch had been received from Chili at the state department, but it was not yet translated, so Chili's an swer was not received until the morning following the transmission of the presi dent's message to congress." One of Schley's nMen Involved. BALTIMORE, Jan. 27.-The Herald will to morrow publish a story to the effeot that during the time the cruiser was lying in the harbor at Valparaiso prior to the success of the congressional party, the executive officer of that ship was send ing daily telearams to a New York paper, which were uniformly in favor of the Bal maceda government. As soon as Captain Schley learned that one of his officers was acting as paid correspondent, he suspended the'officer in question for ten days, but after that time he was reinstated. This matter is what called Captain Schley to Washington from San Francisco. It is well known that Sobhley's orders to his officers and men were positive against any expression in favor of either side. To Carry Coal. BALTIMORE, Jan. 27.-The steamship Earn well sailed in January from Baltimore with a cargo of coal, ostensibly for the West Indies. It ise now known that she is on her way to Montevideo, where her cargo is to be transferred to the White Squadron. It is learned further that the steamer Reeds burg, of the same line, which left Jan. 15, is on the same errand. NONPLUSSED TIH DIRECTOR. A Question That Leech Could Not Answer Satisfactorily. WAsRINGTON, Jan. 27.-Leech, director of the mint, was before the house committee on coinage, weights and measures, and ex amined relative to the silver question. He is of the opinion that the supply and de mand for silver alone regulated its price and favored the international agreement as the best solution of the question. Having spoken of India's large balance of trade, McKeighan (Neb.) asked if that, instead of showing prosperity on the part of India it did not show that India sold so cheaply that other countries preferred to buy of, rather than to sell to, her. When Leech iesponded that a large trade balance was generally thought a good thing for a coun try, McKeighan propounded this question, which was not satisfactorily answered: "Why then, after 1888, when the United States had one of its largest trade bal ances, did we have to cushion the beams of our cars to carry tramps on?" The Trans-Andes Telegraph Line. WAsmNerrToN, Jan. 27.--lt is authorita tively announced that in a very short time the telegraph line will be completed be tween Valparaiso and Buenos Ayres. This will connect at Buenos Ayres to Europe by way of Montevideo and the Brazilian ports. It will be o ,erated from Valparaiso in con-. nection with the West Coast Cable line. School Furniture Trust. GRANt RAPIDS, Mich., Jan. 27.-The Dom ocrat to-morrow will say: The Grand Rap ids School Furniture company, the largest manufacturer of school furniture in the world, has sold out to an organization of capitalists known as the United States Fur nituro company, with headquarters in Chi cago. This company, which is believed to he in the nature of a trust, already controls seven-eighths of the school furniture plants of the United States, and the captures of the Grand Ralids coucern will practically give it control of the business. The capital of the l ms now in the combine aggregates $15,000,000. Married a ' lailean. COuc .o, Jan. 27.--Pang Wun, a wealthy Chinaman of Indianapolis, ind Ida Norton, also of that city, the daughter of wealthy parents and a high school graduate, were married in this city to-night. The bride groom has the distinction of being the richest U(linaman between New Y'ork and San Francisco. The girl is handsome and only 19 years of ago. The identity of the minister who performed the ceremony is kept a secret. THE TIME OUT OF JO I And These Are the Ones Who Thini They Were Born to Set It Right. Representatives of Various Politt oal Reform Moverents in Ses sion in Ohioago. Diffioulty in Putting Together the PIankU of Their Platform-An Address to the People. Ca.zoao, Jan. 27.-To-day the national conference of representatives of the variousr political reform movements now existent in this country, including irohibitionists, farmers, laborers, greenbackers, general' reformers, etc., was hel"d in secret session.' Miss Frances E. Willard presided and stated the object of the conference to be to devise ways and means of electing a president of the United States who will with one blow kill the rum traffic. Ignatius Donnelly was down for the opening speech, but failed to appear. 'The idea is to unite all of these elements on one candidate for the presi dency in the belief that they outnumber either of the regular parties. It was decided that representatives of various movements hold separate meetings and de cide upon planks which they would insist on, respectively, in the joint platform. When the meeting reassembled and reports were made, it wvas found that many things insisted on by one party would not be tolerated by another. The members of the people's party labored in gen eral meeting and in the committee for the adoption of a plank demand ing that exclusive importation, manufac ture and sale of intoxicating liquors be conducted by the government or state at cost. under conditions and restrictions which may be adopted by various states. Their work was largely ineffectual, as the olank found no place in the address brought in by the committee to be pre sented to the coming convention of the people's party. Ignatius Donnelly, H. E. Laubeneck and others have expressed the opinion that the address in its present form will notbe acceptable to the people's party. They say the prohibition clause should be modified, so as to save to foreigners the idea of individual rights in the matter of beer drinking. The address referred to makes the fol lowing suggestions to the people of the United States: "We favor the consolidation of all political elements in behalf of these issues. Money should be issued by the general government without' the interven tion of private institutions, in sufficient quantity to carry on the business of the country, and such money should be full, legal tender for all public and private debts. "The saloon is the great esaemy of reforms, and we denounce its peiniqiots influence and demand Its suppression." The address also favors government con trol of railroads, telegraph and telephone companies, opposes speculation in land and alien ownership of the same; demands reasonable limitation of the amount of land that can be owned by any corporation or individual, and favors municipal suf frage for women, with an educational qual ification. It is signed by Ignatius Donnelly, Francis E. Willard, Gen. J. B. Weaver, E. J. Wheeler, G. M. Miller. E. Evans and H. 8. Taylor. In the Farmers' alliance meeting to-day most of the time was occupied in appoint meont of committees and the settlement of a hvely dispute over the seating of seven more delegates from Nebraska than the constitution was said to permit. The Iowa delegation particularly opposed the admis sion of additional Nebraskans. The Nebraska men finally triumphed by guar anteeing all delinquent dues. The session continues to-morrow and probably the day after. LICKED THE EMGL1SHMAN. Cal. McCarthy Knocks Out Tommy Cal laghan After a Hard Fight. NEw OnLANas, Jan. 27.-The feather weight contest to-night between Tommy Callaghan, of England, and Cal. McCarthy, of New Jersey, was witnessed by 3,000. The fight was for a curse of $2,000. Callaghan was seconded by Jim Carroll and Jim Rob inson; McCarthy by Jack O'Mara. Five ounce gloves were used. In the first, the mdn spent the time sparring for an opening. In the second, a heavy left knocked Mc Carthy down. As soon as he got up it was repeated. After a few exchanges of heavy blows in the third McCarthy again fell. In the fourth, McCarthy landed several blows on his opponent's nose, falling once from the force of his own blow. He also received a heavy left on the nose. A heavy right knocked McCarthy down in the fifth. In the sixth, several heavy blows were ex changed, both men landing on face and body. During the seventh, both exchanged heavy blows, mostly on the nose and cheek. In the eighth and ninth, several heavy blows were exchanged. Callaghan seem ingly having the best ot it. In the tenth, Mc won first blood from his opponent's nose, and in that and the following round several heavy blows were exchanged, the eleventh ending in McCarthy's favor. In the twelfth, the men clinched several times, and exchanged heavy blows. Both dodge.l vicious blows in the thirteenth, then clinched. As the round closed McCarthy landed two heavy lefts. The founteenth witnessed heavy fighting. After missing right and left drives, Mo Carthy knocked Callaghan out with a left hand uppercut in the stomach. Through out the tight Callaghar fought with the left hand only, his right having beeoon broken in a fight six weeks ago.

JIIERNANDEZ SIHOT Acoused of Itneg in Sympathy With GarBe -Stloered Cruelties. SAN AnTOwrc, Jan. 27.-Colonel Hemran dez, who was last Saturday shot at sunrise, was in command of the garrison at Mier, Mexico, uo to a few weeks ago. He was re garded as a most excellent oficer, and, when Garza and about fifty of his followers went over the ltio Grande at La Guslla crossing on Dec. 10 for the nur pole of attacking Mier, Colonel Har bandez made a bold stand with his forces and defeated and scattered the revo lutionists after a sharp engagement. None of Qarza's men were captured, however, andihis fact aroused the ill-will of Gon. Loreuzo Garoia, in command'of the north er miilitary zone of Mexico. who at once instituted an investigation, which resulted in Hernandez being placed nuder arrest, the charge agminst him being that he was a sympathizer with the Garze movement and that he did not capture the revolutionary leader when given an opportunity. Her nanderwas put in irons and conveyed to Mdntitey about three weeks ago by a mill taly escort. Uoon arriving at Monterey be was thrown into a military prison, where the, most, terrible cruelties were imposed upon him. 'rhe announcement of his mili tery execution will create the greatest ex oitement among the common soldiers throughout northern Mexico. Colonel Her mandez is known and greatly beloved by nearly all of them. It is believed by the people of Monterey that it will cause an uprising upon the part of the soldiers, and that privates and officers will flock to Gar za's standard. 'IHE FAMINE GROWING WORSE. Doctors Flee for Their Lives-Trains Do ralled-M-utiny Abroad. ST. PxTExnsnun, Jan. 27.-Matters in the famine-stricken districts are growing .worse.

In some cases, where governors of provinces have threatened to call out the militia to preserve order the peasants have plainly told the governors that if the mili tary are called out they (the peasants) will kill the governors. In some instances ipeasantshave attempted to derail passen ger trains by tearing up portions of tracks. Mea of the regiment stationed at Villna have been displaying a mutinous spirit and to-day refused to salute an artillery officer.

Mattat, Author of the Insulting Note, Is the Hero of the Hour. To Be Given a Grand Banquet .atnrday Night at Which His Insolence Will Be Lauded. SAT.rAo, via Galveston, Tex., Jan. 27. Soecial dispatch to the Associated Press.- The text of Chili's reply to President Har rison's ultimatum is not yet made public, It is awaited on all sides with intense in terest. The substance of it has already been indicated in Associated press dis patches from here and this, so far as learned, meets with the general approval on the part of the intelligent classes. News that President Harrison had sent a special message to congress Monday relating to the points at issue be tween the United States and Chili, and dis patches published here yesterday and to day describing the attitude of the Ameri can public toward the matter, caused no little popular excitement here. The Balti more incident, the president's ultimatum, and the message and dangerous tension of relations between the two govern ments are the sole topics of ponversation in all circles. They dominate newspaper columns to the virtual exclusion of all other questions. The younger and hotter headed portion of the public continues to indulge in much war talk. Rather than have the govern ment acknowledge fault or apologize for its utterances, these young patriots declare they would prefer to see a resort to arms. Such talk as this, it is believed, reflects the opinion of a large element of the common people. Naval officers are reported to be much stirred up at the thought that they may be called upon to salute the stars and stripes. They go so far as to say, according to re ports published in to-day's papers, that they would see the Chilian fleet sunk before they would salute the American flag. Whatever the government may say officially in withdrawing the offensive note of Matta, there are abundant indications that Matta's popularity will not in , any way be decreased because of his authorship of that now famous dispatch. It looks very much as though this would prove the most popular act of his administration. While the cabinet is deliberating upon the precise form of lan guage in which to apologize to the United. btates, preparations are going actively on by a committee of leading citizens to honor Matta with a grand and imposing banquet. This will take place, Saturday, and prom ises to be a brilliant affair., FIuELING IN CHILI. A War Party and a Peace Party-Peru vians and Balmacedans Happy. NEw YoBx, Jan. 27.-The Herald's Santi ago special says: Intense anxiety is felt in this city as to the reply the United States will make to the note sent by Minister Per riera. Papers which favored Balmaceda and the supporters of the late dictator are crowing over the manner in which the matter has been handled by the present government and doing all they can to intlame the people. In Val paraiso the matter is being discussed with more calmness. Merchants and bankers there generally believe a peaceful settle ment of pending difficulties between the United States and Chili will be reached. In Iquique the people especially wrought up to a high pitch Peruvian resi dents are jubilant over the existing state of affairs. The press of Santiago and Val paraiso print the wildest stories relative to the ultimatum. La Union is especially bit ter, and calls on the people, male and fe male, to stand together in upholding the honor of the country. In regard to the story current that the United States would require a salute to the stars and stripes, it says, "Our noble sail ors would prefer sinking to the bottom of the sea rather than salute the yankee flag." A majority of the intelligent people ltoo upon the act of the government in regar to an apology and the withdrawal of the demand for Egan's recall, in a favorable light. La Union prints a letter from an Englisman advising the severance of all diplomatic and consular relations with the United States. Report reaches me that the cabinet is much dissatisfied with the course of Moutt, Chilian minister at Washington. His last message, re ceived Friday, it is said, assured the government that the affair was coming to a speedy conclusion. He has all along led the president and ad visors to believe Blaine desirous of sub mitting the whole affair to arbitration. Some think Pedro Montt was misled by ilichard L. Trumbull, Julio Foster and their democratic friends. The excuse made for demanding the re call of Minister Egan is that it was under stood that he cabled ,Blaine that the Chilian government granted safe con ducts to refugees and, then recalled them. He never made such a statement. The minister of justice ordered Judge Foster to drop all.other work and proceed at once to conclude the trial of the Baltimore case. I hear that the purchase of the cruiser now in the Armstrong yard has been effected by the Chilian government. There is talk to-night of trouble between Chili and Argentina on the question of delimitation. Chilian members of the commission say Argentina wants the ports on the Pacific aide of Patagonian territory, which it is doubtful Chili will grant. INSANE FROM THE 0*GRIP. A Plttsburg Pollceoman Runs Amuck and Cuts His Throat. FPrTrnano, Jan. 27.-Policeman William Orehau went suddenly insane last night from the grip while upon his boat on Oak land avenue. Drawing his revolver he fired several shots and thou tore down the avenue like a madman. 1Io was tlanrishing his club and creating general consternation. lie dashed wildly into the Fourteenth ward station house, calling for help.

K'ALsrvts e, Jan. 27.-L.peolal.1-A -Nood train service has been established over the Great Northern and people visiting the Flathead valley will no longer be subjected to the hardships and weariness incident to a ride over the reservation in a slow stage coach. Trains are now run daily over the extension which are available to the travel ing publio, A passenger coaoh is run each way twice a week, leaving Kalispell Thura days and Sundays, arriving at Havre in time to connect with the west bound for Helena and Butte on the following morn Ing. Returning, the passenger train leaves Havre Mondays and Fridays noon the ar rival of the east bound train. Every effort is made to get these trains through without delay, and so far they have made good time. W. B. Green, superintendent of con struction, is making a reputation in his skillful management of this new line. Con siderable snow has fallen along the line over the pass but the delays have been slight, owing to Mr. Greenr's early educa tion in the art of "snow-bucking." It is no small task to sunperintend the construetion of several hundred miles of road, and han die the rapidly increasing traffic, but in Supt. Green theGreat Northern people have a man equal to the occasion, and one who is deservedly popular. The veterans of the late war held a meet. ing Thursday night, with a view to organ izing a Grand Army post at Kalispell. All the old soldiers of the valley were present.

The Caledonian club entertained a num ber of their friends, Monday night, at a supper given in honor of the anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns. After the supper toasts were assigned to different guests and responded to. There are a num ber of excellent speakers in Kalispell and such occasions are always entertaining. The crowning event of the season was the leap year party given Friday night. The ladies did themselves proud and set an example worthy of emulation by the young men. Inasmuch as the fair sex are in the minority several were required to take more than one, and the duty of caring for the neglected devolved largely upon the mar ried ladies, owing to the timidity of the anmarried. One rule laid down by the managers, and faithfully carried out, was to the effect that no partiality should be shown. This resulted in a conspicuous absence of "wall flowers." The gentlemen were taken to and from the party in sleighs. The only complaint by the boys was that they'were not allowed to slip out and take a quiet smoke occasionally. Another event is promised in the near future. The old settlers of the valley held a poet. ing looking to the organization ±f ,a pioneers' society. All who settled in the Flathead valley prior toDoo.

The others are the Graphic, Inter-Lake and Journal. Negotiations are pending with a number of mill men, and early spring will see the erection of a flour mil,. Good wheat oan be grown in the valley in abundant quanti ties, but the millers will have to educate the farmers in raising the wheat best adapted to the soil and climate.
