In Washington u as talking about the sudden
ending of the Incipient war with the Bouth
American republic. The Senators wore tho
!ut ones to hear tho nows. and as late as 3
o'clock Senator Frye. a member of the Com
mittee on Foreicu Relations, said that he had
not word of information on the subject. The
cewi wan soon confirmed, however, from a
dozen different souiccs. but not until a score
of rumors about the time and manner In which
the apology had come and its terms had been
IcTtftlcated and found to bo incorrect.
H was at first stated that tho dospntoh con
taining the apolocy had been received by the
President on Saturday last and withheld from
his mossago of Monday for the purpobo of de
liberate translation. Than It was reported
that the despatch was additional to that which
ume yesterday, and which was announced In
a telegram from Santiago. FerslBtent inquiry,
however, soon developed the fact to bo that
tho despatch was receivod by Minister Montt
)esterdar. and by him handod to Socrotary
lllalne as the reply of the Chilian Government
to the demand contained In tho despatch of
Secretary Dlalno dated Jan. 21. and which the
rresldent on Monday announced to Congress
his intention to enforce. To-night Secretary
Itlaine could not be seen, as he dined out. as
usual, and thero was much speculation as to
lbs exact terms of the telegram of apology.
No statement on this point will be given by
the rresldent or the Secretary of State, but
Chairman Blount gave to The Sun reporter

FOREIGN C03I3IBSTS,
The HrltUh Provincial Ir Thlik "We
Are a Very fstiabbx Krft,
London. Jan. 27. The provincial newspapers
reflect, to a great oxtent, tho opinion ot tho
London newspapers regarding tho dispute
between tho United Statos and Chill. In fact,
soma of the provincial papers are even moro
rabid in their slurB at. and denunciation of'the
United Statos's policy.
Tho Dirmingham Gazette Is conspicuously
abusive ot tho policy adopted by President
Harrison. It classes his proceedings ns the
most bombastic farce ot tho century, adding
that tho lctors aro far moro contemptible
thnn tho vanquished. Tho "ox-dynamitnrd
lins achieved a letory, compelling n weaker
country to anologizo for speaking the truth
and acting with honesty and discretion."
Tho Manchester (.'narJmii says It Is hard to
believe that tho mossago was an olllci.il rom
mtmipi from tho bend of a great power to its
Congress. Chill, believing that sho would bo
assaulted, as well as browbeaten, has enlarged
hor apology.

At 12 o'clock last night thirty-eight hours
had elapsed slnco tho tug IMwIn Wobster and
four dumping scows disappeared beyond tho
horizon off Itockaway. There woro two mon
on each scow. It is not known how many
woro on tho tug, but thoro wore at least sevon.
Nothing hns boon scon of theso men slnco
3:80 P. M. on Tuosday, when tho tramp
steamer Btranton passod two scows and a tug
boat four ratios off Lone Beach, th scows
drifting and tho tug disabled or at anchor.
But oven that was moro than thirty hours ago
nt midnight, and all that time the wind had
boon blowing out to sea at th rato of from
thirty to llfty miles an liour. The mon had
provisions for twenty-four hours, and eaoh
bcow had a llttlo house aft with a stovo and
coal, but at midnight those provisions wore
probably gone, and tho housos. It not demol
ished by the wind and tho waves, could afford
llttlo protection against the torriblo oold.
'The llttlo floot may bo 200 miles from land
now, and If that Is truo thoro can bo llttlo hopo
that tho orows aro still alive. All day yostor

Tho tugs NIchol nnd Dassorl wero sent out
by Commissioner Bronnan at 2 o'clock yester
day morning. At 4 o'clock In tho afternoon
the NIchol roturnod and reported that she had
loft tho Dassorl at 10 o'clock In tho morlng.
ten miles olT Fire Island, heading eastward.
Up to midnight tho Dass-orl had not boon
hoard from. The ocean tug Edgar F. Lucken
bnch put out to soa early In the morning, and
ot G o'clock in tho altornoon a rumor was
started that she had been seon off Roaknway,
towing two of tho missing scowb. The rumor
oould not bo verified. Two bargos were seen
In tow of tho Emma K. Ross off Itockaway
lato in the afternoon, but they proved to bo a
tow of hor own. At 0 o'clock in tho evening
Commissioner Bronnan sent tho ocean tug
Chapman out to sea in search ot the missing
boats.
The crow of tho tug Wobster were hired for
tho first time on Monday, so that It is impos
sible to learn just how many thoro wore. Cant
Clark was In command, and, in addition to tho
englneor. fireman, and cook, thoro wore at tho
least three deck hands, though, probably, four
or live. Thero nro oight men on tho missing
scows. No. 5 was in charge of Capt. Charles

A few hours after the Wobstor with hor
scows left the city, another fleet of scows, also
in the service of tho Street Cloantng Depart
ment followed. Tho socond lot wns In tow ot
the tug Municipal, nnd consisted of four old
fashioned scows with thirteen Italian laborors
ou each. Thero Is a cabin in tho btorn of theso
boats.
Tlio Municipal roundod Coney Island Point
Into on Tuesday afternoon. Tho sou wns run
ning high, tho wind was blowing nt a torrlflo
rate, and tlio air was biting cold. Tho tug was
rolling heavily and tho scows threutoned to
turn bottom up every time a wave struck them.
The Italians huddled around the stoves in the
cabin-, crossed themselves, und prayed. Cupt.
Kelly of tlio Municipal decided to put about
and make for the nearest shelter. It took near
ly nn hour to gat tho boats into line, and thon
tlio tug headed for Gravescnd Bay. After in
finite difficulty the bay was reached. It was
full of running ice, and the wind swept across
It furiously. Suddenly tho hawser broke. The
Italians groaned and bellovod that the end
had come. At dusk, h,wovor. the scows bad
nil reached the stakebo'at thero and mado fast
Then tho Municipal came back to New York
and reported to Commissioner Bronnan.
The Commissioner ordered her to return to
Ornvesend Hay immcdlatelyand romain there,
ready to rescue tho men If anything should
befall tho scows. Tlio Municipal remained in
Bight of tho scows nil night When day dawned
yesterday tho refuse on tho scows was frozen
solid and was covored witli a film of Ice that
glistened and sparklod in the sunlight Tho
sides of tho vossol s wore stroaked with shin
ing linos of Ice. and ovorything was glittering
and white. Three of tho scows had broken
loose from tho stukobnat and grounded in
shallow water, whero tho running icn kept
banging their sides. It had been a eevoro
night for tlio Italians. On one scow they could
not see tho other scows or the tugboat and
consequently thoy Imagined that they bad
been forsaken. In tho early morning tho
Municipal returned to tho city again. It took
hor four hours to get a 1,000 foot hawser and
nn extra barge, and thon she startod back for
Oravesend Bay to got the Italians. In tho
meun time tho White Star Towing Company of
77 Houth street had sent tho tug Charles
Runyon to tho rescue, and whon tho Municipal
arrived at Uravesond Bay she found tho ltun
you taking tho last man on board and getting
ready to return to Now York. The story of
Cant. Charles A. Day of tlio Runyon Is as
follows:
" When wo got there wo found the four scows
aground, with all tho Italians standing on the
dirt heaps watching us. Thoy waved tholr
arms whon they saw us coming. Wo found
wo couldn't get near them on account of the
high sens, so wo put out to a schooner that
had anchored further down ana borrowed a
yawl. Flvo men were put In tho ynwl and they
rowed out to tho scows. Wo mado thirteen
trips, taking four of them every time, and
foiiio of them wero so stiff thnt we had to lift
them on to thu tug. Our men got pretty stiff
after rowing for half an hour, and it was awful
work. Tho wholo job took us threo hours.
Homo of tlio Italians said they had been out on
tho refuse nil night long. Thoy looked It You
ought to havo seen the way they fell to whon
Wo passed around something to eat"
At 1:15 tho Runyon arrived, nnd landed the
laborers at Old slip.
Owing to tlio low tide at docks of tho Street
Cleaning Depart montyostoiday and tho Ico tho
loaded bcows In dock could not be taken out.
For tho sumo reason the empty soows could
not bo moorod nnd flllod. At 0 o clock vaster
day aftornoou thoro wore noarly a dozen
loadod scows nt tho docks. Commissioner
Brennnn oxpects Hint If tho scows cannot bo
emptied to-day or at the latest, to-morrow,
thoro will bo nn outcry from many people who
find that their ashes nro not removed. Thero
Is no help for it. howovor, nnd the Commis
sioner will do the best ho can to avoid all delay.

" I do not bollevo in non-partisan Boards.
Thnt is tho worst way to govern a city. In a

bo Republican. No one Is rosponsihlo when n
Board is non-partisan. It is bettor for tlio
people to iiuvo a partisan Board. I have
watched tho workings or uon-partlsun
Boards. They cost u third moro than
pnrtisan Boards. People can't reach a
non-partisan Board, whether it is appointed
or elected. Thoro Is no responsibility.
A non-partisan Board Is on tho ' you-tiekle-nie-nnd-I-tlcklo-you'
principle. You
appoint a man for mo and I will appoint a man
for j on. Tho mnjorlty should rulo. Then If
tho people aro not satisfied with Its Boards

It -i proposed to o.xtend this principle to

IfZJtr STEAMSHIP WAS BVRXEDT
Tho Pelarla'a Astenta Believe that Sha la
Only Delayed by Weather.
The British steamship City of Dundee which
arrived at Liverpool from Norfolk on Jan. 10.
reported thnt she had passed on Jan. 11. in
latitude 44. longltudo 43. or about 1,200 miles
west-southwest of Queonstown, a large steam
ship burnod noarly to the water's edge, and
still flaming fiercely. That she was a steam
ship plying between tho Unltod States and
some European port is indicated by her posi
tion, nearly in mid-ocean and just below tlio
track laid down for passenger steamships.
As yet no shipping mon have been able) to
identify the burning ship. She may have been
from a Southern port of this country, as she
was In the track of tho City of Dundee.
The fact that the Hamburg-Amorican steam
ship Polarla is twenty-throo days out from
Stettin has created the improsslon that she
may have been tho burned steamship. She Is
a slow vessel, and her course would naturally
be somewhat higher than the latitude whore
the City ot Dundee passod the flaming hulk of
an Iron steamship. Under the stress of north
erly gales sho might be forced south ot her
usual track, howovor.
The Polarla1 carried twenty-eight steerage
passengers, all Immigrants, and a cargo of
general merchandise. Her agents said yes
terday that thoy believed she was delayed br
stormy weather.
Tho Captain of the City of Dundee said he
steamed around thn burning vessel and
cruised In the neighborhood, but saw no life
boats. Ho belloved that the crow and passen
gers of tho steamship had been picked up.
probably by some Bailing vessel. It Is now
seventeen days slnco the burning steamship
was seen, and the nautical sharps at homonnd
abroad have not yet hazarded a guess at her
name.
SHE PREMEDITATED THE MVRDER,

MEMrms. Jan. 27. It was developed to-night
that the murder of Freda Ward on Monday
was premeditated br Miss Alios Mitchell at
least twenty-four hours before the doed was
done, and probably longer. The murderess
rodo by tho house whoro tbe Ward girls were
visiting several times a day during their stay.
On Sunday night she was heard to make
direct threats against her victim. At 7H
o'clock on that evening two colored girls,
Sarah Hulsey and Clara I Miller, sawMlsa
Mitchell talking to a man they did not recog
nize at the corner of Fourth and Madison
streets. As they approaohed they heard Miss
Mitchell say:
"lam going to cut Freda's throat from ear
to ear. I am going to kill her."
" Miss Alice, let me beg of you not to talk
liko that You wouldn't do anything Ilka
that" said tho man.
" I tell you I'm going to kill her. Pm going
to cut her throat retorted Mies MitchelL
Tho two girls passed on and thought the
talk was nothing but the idle threats of an
angry woman. Tho next morning thoy told
tho story to their employer, Mrs. J. II. McEn
roo, and also to Mrs. Lovlsa Wutson. Tills
evening Mrs. McEnroe told tho story, whloh
was corroborated by hoth girls.
The romalns ol Freda Wara wore burled to
day from Grace Episcopal Church, where she
formorly sang In the choir. The church was
flllod. and thoro were scores ot floral tributes,

to the report Howovor. It has been openly -bMbI
whispered that they havo travellod together. ''SaBI
and that whero ono was tho other was very "'bMbbI
likely to bo found. JanLfl

who has an Income ot about $100,000 a rear. bMbbI
after tholr arrival In the French capital, bought ''bLI
and furnished one of tho moBt magnificent 'aaMaanl
housos in Paris. Thoy lived happily and en ''''aMal
tertalnod in tho most lavish stylo. bbI
But whllo In tlio height ot Parisian soolety ''-bbMbI
thoy began to drift apart and it is said that It 'lifMaMal
was tho quostion ot rollgion which first serl- . -
ously alterod tholr relations. Ths Baroness is 'bbMbI
a Protestant and the Baron is a Catholic.
Throe children woro born to tha ooupla, ona rMaMaai
girl and two boys. Tho boys are now
with their father in Europe. According" H
to Mmo. Do Stuers's story her husband, when 9bMbbb
sho married htm. had a handsome salary, but , '-bbI
his fortuno was a very small ono, and that -.itaaaB
whon sho furnished her house in Paris, sha lattaaai
was compelled to sell J30.000 worth ot English -otbmI
consols to moot tho expenses. At that ume. 'BbMbV
as Mmo. De Stuers has slnco complained. 'ImbbbI
to her friends the Baron seemed to want a
great deal of money, nnd she made out checks MbbMbi
fayable to him. Finally it occurred to her 'iBbbMbI
hat he was seeking to seoure control ot her ''IPsbMi
fortune. i'aMaMan

that her husband was circulating a re- vbMbbI
