•Associated Press Dispatches.
New Yobk, Nov. 22. —Some interest
ing details regarding Chilean events im
mediately following the battles which
resulted in tbe downfall of Balmaceda
and his followers, are contained in a
private letter received from an Ameri
can girl who has been living in Valpa
raiso and Santiago, The writer has
been a member of the household of
the most influential families in Chile,
including that of Balmaceda himself,
and also waa for a long time with the
Edwards family, who were exiled by
Balmaceda, ami afterwards allowed to
return to Santiago.
Following are portions of the letter,
which is dated September 15th:
Referring to tbe treatment of the de
feated leadersof Balmaceda's forces after
the fall of Valparaiso, the water says:
"It is sickening even to write it, but I
saw that mob fight for a bone, a hand, a
small piece of flesh, anything out of the
carts containing the bodies of the dead
generals, and the officers of the junta
looked on and smiled. The generals had
done nothing but remain loyal to the
government. Tbey were not good men,
but they led Balmaceda's army, and
after the battle were found wounded on
tbe field. - When the enemy found them
and demanded their swords, they an
swered, 'Ganerals never surrender.' 80
they were killed, their bodies stripped,
cut to pieces and carted around Val
paraiso. Women, mothers with their
daughters, looked on and said: 'Well
done; this is vengeance for the constitu
tional party; catch Balmaceda and roast
him.'"
Speaking of the battle of Co neon and
Vina del Mar, tbe writer says: "From
the top of the house we could see the
tents and hear every shot. Thousands
of government troop* passed over to the
opposition. On the morning of tbe
28th, after the final battle at Placilla,
firing continued an hour and a half, then
ceased entirely. Twenty minutes later
the remnants of Balmaceda's artillery 1
dashed by as though the devil was after
them, and one shouted up to us: 'All is
loot.' We immediately signalled the |
Baltimore and the San Francisco for
help, and a marine corps soon arrived.
About noon the opposition came in, all
the church and tire bells immediately
rang a medley. The whole population
turned out to meet the invaders; never
was a town more willing to be taken.
Ladies pulled officers from their horses
and hugged and kissed them. Pande- ,
monium reigned that night. Next
morning in various parts of the city,
000 men, Women and children were
found dead. Balmaceda turned the
government over to General Baquedano,
who was neutral, and sent his wife to
Minister Egan, then disappeared.
"The last battle occurred Friday. The
victorious army forgot its 5000 dead and
wounded on the battlefield, and the first
ambulence sent out was by foreigners,
Sunday morning. For ten days I as
sisted the surgeons of the Baltimore
and the San Francisco. Many of the
wounded whom I attended did not know
what they had been fighting for. After
each battle the government men who
had been wounded were all killed. At
one time in Valparaiso there were 4000
wounded congresßionalists. When the
soldiers went to bury the dead they first
stole their clothes and arms; for a day
or two they dug deep wells into which
the bodies were pitched headlong.; but
thia occasioned too much work, so tbey
piled up the dead, pouted kerosene over
them and burned them. Our doctors
did noble work, and, although called
■ Yankee spies, soon won the good will of
every one.
"A week ago today we returned to
Santiago, and as soon as we arrived the
Chileans shut us up in our houses. We
telephoned Egan and so received assist
ance. The Chileans wanted to search
for Balmaceda, but were not allowed,
to, but they appointed a guard to watch
our going and coming; the guard is still
watching."
THE BALTIMORE INUUIKv: ENDED.
New York, Nov. 22.—The Herald's
Valparaiso cable says: Judge of Crimes
Foster has concluded his secret examin
ation in the assault upon the seamen of
the Baltimore, and the result of the tes
timony will probably be obtainable this
week. The evidence will Bhow that
Riggin was killed by a rifle shot, after
having been stabbed. Regarding
Shields, the firemen who was subjected
to such ill treatment, there probably
will be argument over his nationality.
It will be alleged that he was not an
American citizen, as the ship's articles
show he is a native of Ireland.
THE BARK KATSOW'S LOSS.
The bark Kataow, whose loss was
cabled yesterday, was loaded with man
zaneze. After she bad been out nine
dayß the cargo shifted and the vessel was
thrown on her beam ends. The crew,
sixteen in number, got off in small
boats. They were four days at the
mercy of the waves before they could
effect a landing on the northern coast.
They had very little food and Buffered
greatly. They finally reached Fongoy,
thirty miles southwest of Coquimbo,
when they came here;

est precautions to keep order.

have agreed to submit the questions in
dispute to arbitration.

be acted on and some one chosen as his
successor. After noon the delegations
from the various cities desiring to enter
tain the national Republican convention

the committee tonight said each delega

quarters of the various delegations were
intensely lively today. All the delegates
are putting forth their best efforts, and
tonight are conferring with their fellow
delegates. It is difficult to say which

tions, on investigation Bhow no founda
tion.

Chicago, Nov. 22.— The circumstances
suirounding the death oi Carrie Smith,
a stenographer, whose body waa taken
out of the lake Saturday, are a mystery.
There are no marks of violence upon
the body. Her friends refuse to credit
the theory that she committed suicide,
but the police are inclined 'to that be
lief. Thursdays she said that, owing to
the inclement weather, she would not
return for luncheon, and it was accord
ingly put up for her. At noon,
however, she returned, and sur
prise being expressed, she said: "Yes
I've come * home, aud am not
going to work any more." Her
friends thought this meant that she was
not going to work again that day. Fri
day she left her boarding house and
never returned. She belongs to a re
spectable family, the members of which
insist that she was a victim of foul play.
The holding of a post mortem examina
tion is under advisement by the author
ities, as many believe it is the only
means of ascertaining tbe cause of her
death.

tempestuous debate. The letter
scored the Anarchists unmerci
fully, exposing their evil influence
over socialistic gatherings, and declared
that henceforth there should be no con
nection whatever between Socialists and
Anarchists; that the repudiation of
anarchism by the European labor move
ment, as illustrated in the expulsion of
its representatives from the Brussels
international labor congress recently,
should be followed by Socialists through

Won't Be in It Any More—Baron Yon
Pilsach's Resignation Not Accepted.
Berlin, Nov. 22. —The extraordinary
credit over 100,000,000 marks asked for
in tbe budget for artillery, is intended
for providing the army with a new kind
of field gun, which has been perfected
under tbe direction of Emperor Wil
liams, Count Yon Waldersee and Gen
eral Yon Schieffebin. It is estimated
that the peace effective force will be
supplied with a new weapon within a
year, and the war effective within three
years. Germany will thus be placed in
a poeition of superiority to France, the
work of improving the artillery
in the latter country being
still in the experimental stage.
Tbe Krupp works will supply the
castfcteel of which the barrels of tbe
nt'** qua witl be made. The gun will be
lighter than the present weapon, and be

effect. Instead of the various projec
tiles formerly in nse, a universal car
tridge will be used with smokeless
powder.

quire their aid they will not fail it." The
remark has excited much attention in
Berlin.
YON I'ILSACH RETAINED.
