If Unheeded, a Naval DenionHtration Will Follow. riiHt Falling, It Will Be far CongrMl to Ai l Minister Matte Hake* an Ex planation—American Millil iter ■ and Blaster. associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Nov. 10.—The News' Wash ington correspondent asserts that the government has determined, in case Chile does not proffer an explanation of the Baltimore affair soon, to make another peremptory demand. If Chile still fails to act, all the available ves sels of the United States navy will be concentrated in Valparaiso harbor. To this end a number of vessels will be withdrawn from the foreign squadrons. If this has no effect, it will be for con gress to act. Nkw Yobk, Nov. 10.—Tbe Herald's Santiago cable contains an interview with the Chilean minister of foreign affairs, Matta, in which the latter con veys the impression that the represen tatives of the United States in Chile had seemed to think they could in every way dictate to Chile what she should and should not do. This stand on their part, he said, was untenable. He denied the assertions that the pres ent government was hostile to the United States, and said when all that has transpired since the war began was known, the people of both countries would be called upon to act as judges. As to the refusal to permit an officer of the Baltimore to be present at the judi cial investigation, it was sim ply because it was a violation of tbe rules of Chilean legal procedure. The judge of crimescontrols these secret trials, and it is left to his discretion whether or not to ask the presence of an outsider. All this information has been transmitted to Minister Egan. BLIINDIKB AND BLUSTER. A Hritish Correspondent Again After the Amerleana. London, Nov. 10.—The Santiago cor respondent of the Times telegraphs a long diatribe against false Chilean news sent by American correspondents or in vented in Arctrica. Taking his text from the report of the blowing up of the cruiser Baltimore, he says: "Since tbe arrival of American news papers here, we have had in addition to the scandal created by rowdy diplomacy an unseemly squabble among American correspondents respecting the author ship of false telegrams published in America. These quarrels tend to place America in an unenviable light. "It is necessary again to call atten tion to the disregard by the American officials here of tho pacific orders alleged to have been sent from Wash ington. These orders give the text of ostensible instructions previously sent to maintain the strictest neutrality dur ing the Chilean civil war. Owing either to their knowledge of the secret inten tions of the Washington cabinet, or other motives, Minister Egan, Com mander Schley and the American con sul continue to show the bitterest animus against the Congressionalist government, publicly. It ia notorious that Minister Egan's attitude, and that of his assistants, continues to be such as may provoke a rupture of the friendly relations between the twocountiies. "Viewed in connection with later events, Commander Schley's landing of sailors on October 16th, ceases to bear the aspect of thoughtless imprudence. The preparation of the Baltimore for action at midnight in a friendly port, waa an inault to the dignity and good faith of Chile, and more so still are the declarations Commander Schley has just made in several quartera that war between the United Statea and Chile ia inevitable. The American consul at Valparaiso is spreading similar reports, and adds that a strong United States squadron is coming here. "In consequence of this official fili bustering, war ships of other nations which were about to leave Chile, have been ordered to remain. These deliber ate provocations will not make the Chilean government abandon its correct judicial attitude. There is, I repeat, absolutely no hostile feeling in Chile against the United States, but such ieeling may be brought about unless more prudence is displayed. "The captain of the Itata speaks with enthusiasm of the public sympathy he received in California, in strong contrast with the vexatious conduct of the American officials. "The captain of the Esmeralda reports that Washington orders prevented him Irom coaling at Acapulco, and thus the Esmeralda was prevented for weeks from assisting the Oongressionaliats. "Minister Egan has already congrat ulated Admiral Montt upon his elec tion as president. This is a diplomatic blunder, Admiral Montt being only a candidate for the presidency. It ia unfair, however, to attribute thia un pardonable mistake to Miniater Egan's desire to further interfere with the affairs of Chile." DISORDERS IN KQUADOR. Bloody Biota Attending the Municipal Election*. New York, Nov. 10.—A correspondent at Guayaquil, Ecuador, cables the Herald that the municipal elections commenced November 7th, and have been attended by bitter political feuds, which have caused intense excitement, and at length led to bloodshed. Voting in the different districts was accom panied by great disturbance on the part of the contending factions. Street fights were frequent, but as tbe people were unarmed no seriouß results followed un til the police took a hand. Without warning they opened fire on the crowd, wounding several persons. Their action created great indignation. Business has been practically suspended, BEATEN TO DEATH. A Drunken Hostler Sustains Fatal In Juries at Stockton. Stockton, Nov. 10.—Frank Gaigan, a hostler in the employ of Orrin Hickok, here, was beaten by a man named Wil liams Cannon, last night, and died this afternoon. Gaigan and a companion were drunk and called at a house near the race track, which was formerly a saloon, but is now occupied as a resi dence byCaimon and family. Gaigan insisted that he wanted a drink, and when he refused to leave, after being told that it was not a public house, Carinas knocked him off the porch. Gaigan got up and again tried to get in, when Cannon went at him again, and Gaigan fell off the steps, striking on his head and shoulders. Gaigan's compan ion took him to the race track, and this morning he was removed to the hospital in a dying condition. Cannon is under arrest. A Strike Inaugurated. St. Louis, Nov. 10. —The engineers and firemen of the Belt line have de clared a strike. This will spread to other lines. Chief Arthur stated that no freight will be bandied by Brother hood men, going to tho Belt line. The San Francisco at Acapnlco. Washington, Nov. 10. —A telegram received at the navy department this morning announced the arrival of the U. S. S. San Francisco at Acapulco yes terday. She will sail thia afternoon for San Francisco. BRAZIL BREAKING UP. THE REPUBLIC SHOWING SIGNS OF DISINTEGRATION. •J" Two of the Leading Provinoes Have Al ready Declared Their Independence. The Dlntator Must Resort to Arms to Maintain His Power. London, Nov. 10, 7 p. m. —A dispatch just received from Pernambtico brings further alarming intelligence regarding the situation of affairs in Brazil. There is no doubt that the situation of affairs in Brazil, arising out of the assumption of dictatorial powers by the late presi dent of the republic, Marshal Deodoro da Fonseca, is rapidly approaching a point where resort to arms will be necessfry to estab lish the position of the dictator. The dispatches of yesterday showed that there was a feeling of discontent |pre vailing everywhere throughout Brazil. The Republicans see in this last move of Da Fonseca, and attempt to override tho authority vested in him by the con stitution. So strong has the opposition to Da Fonseca grown, that yesterday it was announced that the important pro vince of Rio Grande do Sol has declared its indpendence. A dispatch just received shows that steps will have to be immediately taken to prevent, if possible, tbe disintegra tion of the republic. The province of Grao Para has followed the example set by Rio Grande do Sul, and today de clared its independence. Grao Para is one of the most important provinces of Brazil. The independence movement will probably be followed by a similar declaration by the province of Bahia. Dictator Fonseca is moving rapidly to suppress these attempts to set up sepa rate governments, and has ordered a warship to proceed without delay to Rio Grande do Sul to take such action as may be necessary to prevent the pro vincial authorities from carrying the declaration of independence into effect. It behooves him to move with alacrity, for already a man has been named in connection with the contemplated pres idency of the province. He is Silvence Martinez, who during the last revolu tion was banished from the country. He was subsequently allowed to return. Silvence Martinez is without doubt pos sessed of greater political influence than any other man in the province. Washington, Nov. 10.—No news has been received at the Brazilian legation to indicate that the province of Rio Grande do Sul has seceded from the re public of Brazil, or is in a state of re volt. A cablegram bas been received at the legation from the minister of foreign affairs, relating to routine matters, but giving no bint of a revolution or tbe re signment of the cabinet. London, Nov. 10. —The Santiago cor respondent of the Times says: "It is only with difficulty tbat Brazil news arrives here, unless it is favorable to tbe dictator. It is affirmed that the man ager of the London and Brazilian bank, in Rio Janeiro, took refuge at the Eng lish consulate, against official persecu tion for his alleged efforts to lower the rates of exchange. President Fonseca has published a decree making expul sion the penalty for resisting the dictatorship. Only a portion of the navy favors Fonseca. Admiral Mell, a strong Republican, has protested against any change in the form of gov ernment. All attempts to hold meetings are frustrated. The chambers were dissolved forcibly. It hi alleged that President da Fonseca intends to reduce the number of deputies to 180. . Ex change is falling in Rio Janeiro. Chicago, Nov. 10—A special from Washington says a long cipher dispatch was received by the state department today, from the American minister at Rio janerio, but tbe department refuses to give out any information. The British minister, Sir Julian Paunceforte, has a dispatch from the British admiral, at the Brazilian Btation, saying the country is in open revolution.

The Bering Sea Question Will Be Arbitrated. Solicitor-General Taft Let the Cat Out of the Bag. Attorney-General Miller Assisted in the Operation. A State Secret Unexpectedly Revealed to the Public by the Department of Justice—Secretary Blame Refuses to Blab. Associated Press DisDatches. Washington, Nov. 10. —The public was taken into the confidence of the diplomatic branch of the government this afternoon, in the continuation of the hearing in the Sayward case, and the first announcement was made that the prolonged diplomatic correspond ence between Secretary Blame and Lord Salisbury had resulted in an agreement by which, with the consent of the sen ate, the long pending dispute over the seal fisheries in Bering sea would be definitely settled. Solicitor General Taft, who was addressing the court, made the first intimation that the cor respondence between the two countries bad reached a point of agreement upon arbetration. He stopped at this point. Then Justice Gray desired some more explicit statement as to whether an agreement upon arbitration bad been actually reached. The solicitor general hesitated to reply, and inti mated that perhaps he had revealed more than be, not being a cabinet of ficer and being authorized to speak only on legal questions, should have done. Thereupon Attorney-General Miller himself interposed, and not only sub stantiated all the solicitor-general had said, but went further and announced tbat the government had effected an agreement. This is practically the first announce ment made as to tbe progress of the Bering sea negotiations, since the last correspondence was made public, show ing a difference of opinion between the two governments as to the points of ar bitration. It was surprising that tbe news should first come out in argument in cjurt, and the attorney-general was asked, after adjournment, if he would throw some light on the subject. "It is true- that an agreement has been reached," he said. "Yes," he added, "the matter has been settled be tween the two governments —that *is, subject to ratification bjrthe senate." "vVhat are tbe points ol arbitraWoh?'* "I cannot *ay more than 1 said in court. Why don't you go to the state department?" "Yes. you can state as a fact, tbat an agreement has been concluded." Solicitor-General Taft was next seen, but would only confirm what the attor ney-general had said. "In the last cor respondence, you know," he said, "there \f%s simply a difference between the two governments as to the points of arbitration. Well, the correspondence since then has resulted in a treaty which now only needs to be ratified by the senate." The reporter suggested that it was something unusual to hear the an nouncement of such important news in an argument in court. "But it is a fact," was the reply. Secretary Blame positively declined to make any statement touching the matter. The inference drawn from the devel opments today (including the statement made by the attorney geuerai to a repre sentative of the Associated Press, as shown above), is that the president will submit to the senate an agreement in the nature of a treaty between the United States and Great Britain by which the parties bind themselves to accept a final and conclusive definition to be given by the arbitrators, of the exact rights of the United States in Ber ing sea, as well as to pay any awards of damages suffered by the nation declared to have had a true contention. It ia alao presumed that arbitrators have been selected, but none of the offi cials seen would discus* the detaila of the agreement, doubtless for the reason that it has to be submitted to the sen ate for ratification, and therefore comes under tbe executive session roles of the senate, which requires secrecy to be ob served. When Taft finished his argument to day, Mr. Choate, on behalf of Great Britain, addressed the court. O'BRIEN VINDICATED. He Publishes tbe Correspondence that Passed Between Him and Parnell. Dublin, Nov. 10.—William O'Brien publishes a long letter in the Freeman's Journal denouncing the conduct of Red mond and Harrington in trying to de ceive the Irish public by pretending, on the strength of their hope that be had lost Parnell'a letter, that it disclosed treachery towards Parnell and other Liberal allies. O'Brien now gives the letter to the'world, together with his reply—the only letter he wrote to Par nell during the Boulogne negotiations, and not yet published. Parnell's letter to O'Brien suggests that McCarthy interview Glodstone and get a written memoranda embodying the assurances already given anent land and police, and transfer it to the custody of O'Brien, that if the memorandum was satisfactory to both Parnell and O'Brien the former would announce his retire ment from the chairmanship; that tbe terms of the memorandum should nut be disclosed until the home rule bill was introduced, and not then unless the bill was unsatisfactory, but after the passage of a satisfactory bill Parnell should be permitted to publish the memorandum. Instead of the two years' limit within which the constabu lary should be disarmed and converted into a civil force, Parnell agreed that the time might be extended to five years, but said it was of vital importance that some limit should be fixed. The letter in conclusion gives O'Brien permission to show it to Redmond's brother and Gill. O'Brien says on receiving thia letter he telegraphed it to Mr. Harrington, who replied that Parnell's proposals were subject to O'Brien's accepting the chairmanship. At the same time O'Brien wrote to Parnell to the effect that the proposals were feasible, pro vided McCarthy continued chairman; otherwise, as tbe Hawarden plan in volved the employment of McCarthy in a painful transaction, they would raise a formidable difficulty. O'Brien concludes with the expression of belief that they would be able to de vise some other equally satisfactory plan. In a postscript he says be con sulted Redmond and Gill, and all agreed tbat when they met next May they would be able to arrange a modus Vivendi. O'Brien contends that the foregoing disposes of the Parnellite plea that Par nell's retirement was to be a sham, and that he was to have the right of veto in connection with the home rule bill. CABLE FLASHES. . By the falling of a cage in a mine sba't in France, three men were instant ly killed and live fatally wounded.

GILLIN&HAM'S RECORD LAID BARE. Charges Preferred Against Him Tbat Make Him a Veritable Wolf in Sheep's Clothing-TjM Presbyterian Bynod Bit ting on His tCase at Modesto. Modesto, Cal.. Nov. 10. —The synod of the Presbyterian church met last evening to try the charges against Pastor Gillingbam. The charges are preferred by J. E. Ward, cashier of the First National bank and a deacon of the church, and cover eight pages of type written copy. They embrace the use of vulgar and indecent language; un christian and nnministerial conduct; visiting a place of amusement in San Francisco where liquors are dispensed; wilful falsehood in claiming to be a graduate of Princeton college, and stories about the great wealth of his father; fraudulently obtaining license to preach; false swearing, slandering brethren and claiming that bis divorced wife was dead. Moderator J. M. Wood, of Sanger, presided. Gillingham read written demurrers to all the charges, which were overruled by the moderator, and the synod re mained in sessien till 1 o'clock this morning to hear the evidence of two witnesses living at a distance, desirous of leaving today. At 3 o'clock the taking of evidence commenced. The witnesses -comprise ministers, deacons, ladies, merchants, and the statements of professors of col leges, editors of religious publications, and Postmaster-General Wanamaker. Mrs. Kutledge and 0. B. Burkett. of Woodbridpe, testified to Gillingbam's false statement of his wife's death in lowa in 1886. James Thompson and J. H. Shafe, of this city, testified to vnlgar and indecent language. The trial will last two or three days. THE INDIAN CYCLONE. Large Loss of Life and Widespread Rnin In Its Path. Calcutta, Nov. 10.—Further details regarding the cyclone which passed over this part of India on Monday of last week show that the damage done was very extensive. Besides the loss of seventy-seven lives, occasioned by the sinking of tbe Indian government steamer Enterprise, which foundered at the Andaman islands, killing sixty con victs, there no doubt has been large loss of life at other places along the coast. Advices from vari ous parts of Bengal state that the cyclone passed over that sec tion of country and did great damage. The cyclone cleared a path through forests, uprooting gigantic trees and hurling them aside as though tbey were reeds. No house could stand the terri ble energy of the gale, and every dwell ing or other structure within the path of tbe cyclone was either swept from its foundations or turned over. The wind also did great damage below Calcutta. The city is situated on the east bank of the Hoogley river, the westernmost branch of the Ganges. The Hoogley river empties into the Bay of Bengal. A number of large vessels were at anchor off the mouth of the Hoogley river, in such a position that when the gale suddenly burst, it was impossible to save many of them. Numbers dragged their anchor and were carried ashore, and others were dam aged by the pounding received by the enormous seas which accompanied the storm. No estimate can be made of the total loss of life, but it will be very large. The Czar's Wedding;. St. Petersburg, Nov. 10. — Though the czar celebrated his silver wedding yesterday, at Livadia, in an extremely quiet manner, the occasion being marked by no state festivities of any description, the event was the occasion of much hearty comment and congratu lation throughout the empire. In the larger cities the event was celebrated by many banquets, and in the evening a number of balls were given. Minister Monti's Credentials.
