Washington, Dec. 24. The controversy
with Chili is approaching a conclusion.
It ia learned that the latest communica
tions from Minister Egan are of a char
acter to discourage the diplomatic argu
ment to induce the Chilian authorities to
express any regret at tjie assault npon our
Bailors in Valparaiso, or to make any re
paration for the killing of the men of the
All day yesterday Secretary Blaine was
engaged upon the preparation of the
American case against Chili. When Mr,
Blaine has completed his statement, the
president will take it in hand and prepare
it with an introduction of his own and
perhaps, adding some language that h
deems essential to impress congress with
the importance of prompt treatment of his
suggestions, will send it to the bouse as
special message, in temperate way
following the traditions in the forms of
presentation, he will indicate to congress
the conclusion that the indifference to our
request lor reparation by the Chilian
government amounts to manifestations of
hostility, av! thut in order to assert the
demands of the united States effectively
the presi Jent will request that he be per
mitted to use the. naval and military
forces of toe u c.tea states to constraiu
that respect which can not be argued
through the ordinary diplomatic channels
and by the development of the agencies

should ttie president send nis special
message on Chili to congress, as it is now
considered not improbable he may, it is
considered almost certain that the noliday
recess will be either abandoned or re
duced to one of unusual brevity.

Judge Wood' Nomlmiti H .
Washington, D;c, 24. "President liar
rison was well aware that the nomina
Hon of his olu friend and neighbor, Judi.'fl
Woods, of Indianapolis, would meet wi:h
more or less opposition," said a well in
formed member of the house to-day, "but
the nomination to the federal circuit was
made as a result of the president's knowl
edge of Woods' abilities, and you may de
pend upon it that, unless Judge Woods
declines the appointment before the sen
ate has acted on the matter, and that is
not very probable.the nomination will pot
be withdrawn." This remark w as brought
out by the telegraphed announcement
that the patent lawyers of the leading
cities of the west had been invited to meet
at the University club, in Chicago, on
Saturday, to protest against the appoint
ment, and to demand its rejection by the
senate. The tremendous amount of criti
cism and opposition that the nomination
has evoked has created great interest
here among Republicans and Democrats
alike, and there is considerable specula
tion regarding the final outcome of the
affair. The probability is however, that
as soon as the nomination is, confirmed,
as it certainlv will be, the storm will blow
over, and give place to some other matter
of fresher public interest.
The Dead); C'lsiiretle.
Chattanooga. Tenn., Dec. 24. The fact
was announced here through an intimate
friend of the family that the death of the
millionaire. John P. Richardson, a form
er Chattanoogan, who died last week on
his plantation near New Orleans, was
caused by excessive cigarette smoking. It
was first stated he died of pneumonia.
The pulmonary trouble, however, was on
ly a light attack, and the family physi
cian said it couid have been cured. But
heart failure due to cigarette smoking, set
in, and death quickly followed. His es
tate will foot up between $1,500,01)0 to
$2,000,000, of which, by the,law of Louisi
ana, fits wile gets halt, lie bad nis nie
nsured for $100,000.
J'ldge Ofgre Chandler, assistant secrs
t ir.v of the interior, is mentioned as a

Tho report tint the late Senator Plumb
was a two-millionaire is denied, the total
of his fortune being placed at $200,000.

New Yonic, Dec. 24. The representa

dignant over the circular that, is now
being distributed over the country by the
revolutionary factions, and which declares
that the time for a revival of physical
force methods has arrived, and urging a
re-organization of Fenian circles every
where. It is probable that a mans meet
ing of the home rule elements will shortly
be called to denounce the sentiments
expressed in the circular.
Washington, Dec. 24. The president

THE ARID LANDS.
Senator Warren, of Wyoming, Tut ks on the
Washington, Dec. 24. Yesterday Sen
ator Warren, who has been selected
chairman of the committee on irrigation
and crid lauds, spoke to a reporter as
'No one could begin to estimate the

the state underlaid with coal; will oil

the United States; with iron, copper and
soda in abundance, and with precious
metals almost everywhere, we have now
less than one person to each square mile
of area. The total assessed valuation of
the state amounts to little more than 50
cents to each acre of land in the state,
and this includes cities and towns. We
need more people and more capital to
develop our resources, but we can not
have these unless our agricultural interests
"What is true of Wyoming is true 01
other states in the arid belt;, and when I
tell you that this arid region includes one
third of the whole of the United States,
you will begin to appreciate what an im
portant question irrigation is to the people
and states in the far west. Surely, if we
get congress to look at this matter us we
see it, there ought to be no question about
securing the necessary legislation."
