VOL. 37.—N0. 77. CHILE APOLOGIZES. t\ The Amende Honorable at Last Forthcoming. Montt Instructed to Tender a Sincere Apology. All the Hatters in Dispute to Be Speedily Settled. ■Correspondence on the Baltimore Affair Mot to Be Sent to Congress at Present—Mexican Revolution Ists Scattered. Associated Proas Dispatches. New York, Jan. 4.—The Herald's Valparaiso correspondent says he hears the Chilean government has cabled orders to Minister Pedro Montt at Wash ington to make a sincere apology to the United States for the unfortunate and deplorable attack upon the Baltimore sailors, October 16th last. The apology is unqualified in character. The other matters which have been in dispute between Chile and the United States are to be speedily considered by the new administration. From semi-official sources he learns that the reason why the Santiago police are kept in the vicinity of the American legation is -that the intendente of the city is in daily receipt of letters contain ing threats to burn and sack the lega tion. Tbe correspondent asserts that it is no secret that those who cherish the idea of war between the United States and Chile are friends of Balmaceda. Tbe correspondent learns tbat the German minister, Gutachmidt, offered the services of his country as mediator on his own personal responsibiliiy. This ia in line with hia course of action ever since the present government came into office. He haa pursued it with a view to getting np a reputation for him self as a diplomatist. The Yantic haa arrived at Montevideo. The Britiah bark Ravenwood, Captain Hill, from San Francisco, baa pnt in here with the loas of a mast and yards. CHILEAN CORRBSPONDBNCB. The President Not Ready to Lay It Before Congress. Washington Jan. 4. —The correspond ence which the president promised to eend to congreaa relating to the attack npon the Baltimore aailora at Valparaiso will not be sent now. In fact there is reason to believe some daya will elapee before the public may know officially just what passed between the depart ment of state and Minister Fgan on one side, and the Chilean minister of foreign affairs and Minister Montt on the other. The unofficial announcement of the practical completion of judicial proceedings in Valparaiso and the in tention of the Chilean legal authorities ' to punish the three Chileans convicted of participation in the assault haa given satisfaction here, and ia generally re garded aa a distinct concession by the Chileans to the United States, aa show ing that there will not in all probability be further undue delay in the disposition of the case. These tidings have not, so far as learned, been officially made known to Secretary Blame by Minister Montt, and it may be that the latter will await the sentence of the convicted Chileans before he presents to the sec retary the conclusions reached by the judicial authorities of hia country. With mattera in thia promising condi tion it ia unlikely a disturbing element will be introduced into the negotiations by the publication in complete of the correspondence. NKARING THE KND. The Garza Revolution Breaking Up—The Bandits Scattered* Washington, Jan. 4.—A telegram from General Stanley, dated San An tonio, Tex., January 4th, received by General Schofield tonight, leada him to believe tbat the trouble ia nearing an end. Ihe telegram ia aa follows: "The commanding officer at Fort Ring gold today reporta that a courier in from Lieutenant Beach at Pineno passed Captain Hardie at Salenno. All in formation from that direction and from scouting parties in the vicinity indicate the breaking up and scattering of the , band of revolutionists. Reliable in formation received convinces me that the reports mentioned in your telegram of December 29th are incorrect. All the stage lines and travel here continue unmolested. Captain Johnaon, at Fort Brown, telegraphs tbat he returned laat night with hia troop from 45 miles up the Rio Grande where a large nneh waa searched. No bandita were there. The situation of the troops on the Rio Grande is as follows: Cavalry are scout ing in Kncinal, Duvall, Zapate and Starr counties. The river ia well protected from Ringgold to Mcintosh. Ihe telegram from General Bcofield December 25th, above refened to, called the attention of General Stanley to tbe reporta current in Mexico that aeveral large ranch ownera in Texas are harbor ing and aiding bands of revolutionists. THE REBELS WELL WATCHED. San Antonio, Tex., Jan.. 4.—Official telegrams received at military head quarters today from the commandants at Forts Ringgold and Brown are to the effect that Garza's men are being watched by United Statea troops, and will be prevented from mobilizing any thing like a formidable force on Ameri can aoil. Captain Wheeler, at Fort Ringgold, discredits the assertion of the Mexican minister at Washington that prominent Mexican citizeus are being held by Garza at a point in Duvall county. Captain Johnson at Fsrt Brown haa just returned from a scout forty-five inileß up the Kio Grande, but he met no revolutionists. Fresh detachments went out today. All the forcea are Buffering much from lack of forage and water for their horses. GARZA SURROUNDED. Laredo, Tex., Jan. 4.—lt ia stated here that the Mexican revolutionist, Garza, is surrounded in the chaparral in >the extreme northwestern corner of Za TUESDAY MORNING. JANUARY 5, 1892—TEN PAGES'. pata county by United States troops and rangers, and tbat it is almost impossible for him to escape, either to the north ward or in the direction of Mexico. FIFTY-BKCOND CONGKKSS. Speaker Crisp Still Too 111 to Call the House to Order Today. Washington, Jan. 4. —It is definitely settled that Speaker Crisp will not call the house to order tomorrow when it re convenes. Tbe speaker continues to improve in health, but bis recovery is very slow, and has not yet pregreßaed far enough to make it safe for him to leave his room. There seems to be a general belief on the pai t of the Demo cratic members that McMillin will be selected speaker pro tern. Efforts will be made today to obtain the speaker's wishes on the subject, and custom has made the speaker's preference almost the determining factor in such cases. The Post tomorrow will say: Tbe statement published aome time ago to the effect that the leading Democrats were desirous of bringing the present aeaaion to a speedy adjournment, will receive corroboration in an amend ment to the ru!«a which will be offered by Bepresentkvi>u McCreary of Ken tucky, (iovernor McCreary believes that all appropriation bille ought to be reported to the house within the first eighty days of the long, and the first forty days of the short session, so they can receive speedy consideration and thus insure early adjournment. His amendment is made applicable to all aesßions of congress. An effort will probably be made dur ing the present session 'to admit Okla homa to atatehood. On official of the government who recently made an in spection there, comes back to Washing ton with an enthusiastic account of the growth and importance of Oklahoma. It is learned from an authoritative source that an effort will be made to repeal the disability pension law and adopt in ita place a per diem service pension bill. Repreeentative Blanchard says the river and harbor bill will be ready to be presented by March. SALVATIONIST MARTYRS. RED-SHIRTJ£D SAINTS PERSECUTED IN ENGLAND. A Mob's Violent Assault on the Salvation Army at Eastbourne—Mounted Polioe Charge the Crowd—Many Persona Seriously Injured. London, Jan. 4.—The troubles be tween the Salvation army and the au thorities at Eastbourne reaulted yeater day in a riot of unusual violence. For a long time there haa been open war be tween the Salvationists and the police. The former assert that the Eastbourne officials have displayed a feeling of re ligious intolerance in their treatment of the army, and so determined are the members of the Salvation army to main tain what they deem their judicial rights, that they propose to introduce a bill in parliament to repeal or amend the Eastbourne improvement act under which the town officials prevent the Salvationists from holding meetings on the streets. Yesterday the Eastbourne contingent of the Salvation army was divided into four sections, stationed in different parte of the town. The police broke up these meetings with some trouble, but in the afternoon sixty of the army again sallied from the bar racks and proceeded to the beach, fol lowed by an immense crowd, who menaced them with all manner of ill treatment. Once upon the beach the Salvation iata knelt down on the eanda in prayer. Aa they did ao, they linked arms, better to repel the assaults of the irreligious mob, should the latter take it into their heads to charge. The mob hooted and yelled aud finally made an ugly rush. Some of the Salvationista were thrown to the ground, but immediately resumed a kneeling position and continued pray ing. Several times the rushing waa re peated, but the Salvationists paid no at tention more than was necessary to avoid being seriously hurt. A number of police were present and the mob re viled them for not dispersing the Salva tionists. As soon a a the praying waa concluded the Salvationiata rose to their feet. This seemed the signal for a preconcerted at tack, for the mob immediately swooped down upon the devoted band, scatteiing them in wild disorder. Many were struck, kicked and otherwise ill-treated. The musical instruments used by the Salvationists eeemed eapecially to excite tbe ire of the mob, and the persona bearing tbem were singled out for more than usually brutal treatment. The mob, got possession of the instruments and after smashing them, threw them into the street. Then a detachment of mounted police charged the crowd. They made no dis tinction between men and women. They rode down upon the crowd, trampling the rowdies, male and female alike, un der the feet of the horses. Many of the crowd were severely hurt. The Salva tionista declare that the police, instead of protecting them, deliberately struck them and rode over them. Their clothes were torn and their hata lost. A num ber of women loat their Bkirta and jack eta in the wild rush following the charge of the police, their garments be ing torn off them in their deaperate struggle to escape being trampled upon by the horses. During the melee the banner of the Salvation army fell into the hands of tbe enemy. Some of the Salvationiata charged to regain the flag, and a fierce tight ensued. Finally the Salvationists regained their standard, and under a rain of blows succeeded in getting away from the mob with tbe flag in their possession. After some little time the Salvationists, their clothing bedraggled and faces ehowing marka of ill-treat ment, rallied around their standard. They formed in regular linea, and sur rounded by police, marched back to tbeir barracks. Deepite this protection, they were not safe from attack, for the mob aeveral times charged upon them, and the police were almost powerless to prevent injuries, being inflicted. Some of the more rabid of the mob got posses sion of vehicles, and paying no atten tion to the police, drove deliberately into the Salvationists' ranka, with the object of running over tbem. THE OHIO CONTEST. The Sherman-Foraker Fight Still On. Depew's Fine Italian Hand in the Game. Sherman's Labor and Pensions Rec ord Laid Bare. Labor and Farmer*' Organization* Work ing Against Kirn—The Outcome of th* Straggle Considered Uncertain. Associated Press Dispatches. Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 4. —The senato rial contest this morning showed hope ful evidences of an early solution. One by one the doubtful assembly men are being forced to yield to public presstfre or the clamor of their constituents,ito declare themselves, until the list is be coming so small that the result can eopn be safely declared irrespective of thinr possible action. Last night Senator Parker of Cuyahoga declared irrevocably for Foraker, and this morning Senafpr Rawlins Clark came out for Shermaja. This was a distinct gain of one for tpe Shermaniteß, as '..wlins had been con stantly claimed by both sides. Tbe Sher man people this morning insisted that tbey'would have the support of Senator Lampson, president pro tern of the senate, but tbe Foraker people alto claimed bim, while the senator himself still maintained his position of uncer tainty. Senator Sherman on being questioned said: "I have received assurances that Lampson will cast nis vote for me." Strong efforts are being made by the Foraker men, generally, to induce the labor organizations throughout the state to declare for Foraker and against Sherman. DEPEW'S VINE ITALIAN HAND. A little excitement was occasioned this morning by the claim of the Foraker people that the Sher man forces were endeavoring to secure the votejof Representative Pudney of Cleve land through the influence tof Cnauncey Depew, who they said, had consented to take a hand in the fight for Sherman. It was discovered that this meant that Pudney would be deprived of his position as at torney for the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railroad company at the town in which he resides, if be fails to vote for Sherman. The Sherman people de nounce this statement as malicious, aid state tbat neither Depew nor any other corporate reserves were endeavoring to coerce the nomination of Senator Sher man. THE LEGISLATURE ORGANIZED. The two houses of the general assem bly met at 10 o'clock this morning and organized by electing Senator Lampson of Ashtabula president pro tern. of the senate, and Representative Liylin of Huron ppeaker ot the house. The regu lar caucus nominees for the minor po sitions were also elected. In his message to *he general assem bly, Governor Campbell confined him sell to a renewal of such suggestions and recommendations as were made by him to the sixty-ninth assembly and not acted upon by that body. TUG OF WAR POSTPONED. The Sherman Republicans made no attempt to seat George Idan in the Iden-Eaumer contest this morning, so tbe anticipated conflict between the Foraker and Sherman forces in the sen ate did not take place. The only dis pute over the question was whether the case should be referred to the regular committee on privileges when appointed, or to a special committee consisting of Nichols and Carpenter, Republican, and Forbes, Democrat. The latter was a ptoposition ot the Republicans, and it prevailed by a strict party vote. As the Republican members of the commit tee are both Sherman men, there is no doubt that they will report in favor of Beating Iden without delay. The For aker senators refuse to indicate what course they will pursue in case the committee reports in favor of Beating Iden. THE ULTIMATE RESULT UNCERTAIN. The Republican joint caucus will be held Wednesday evening. It looks now as though the announcement of the standing of the doubtful ones will not bo made until the evening of the cau cus, and this, with the possibility of a secret ballot still leaves the ultimate result uncertain. While a dead lock is not probable, it is not impossible that the contest may drift into a condition which neither of the pronounced candi dates can secure a majority of the cau cus. SHERMAN'S BAD LABOR RECORD. Much dispute has been created by an open letter of Col. H. V. Boynton, a Washington journalist, defending Sher man's labor record and ridiculing tbe "labor committee" now here striving to defeat the senator. This afternoon the committee sent Boynton a telegram saying in part: " The Republican platforms of 1880, ISB4 and 1888 pledged the passage of acts forthe exclusion of Chinese, and by voting against them, Sherman set him self above the party. Would he have chanced it had he been nominated for the presidency, or tried to deceive the people on the' Pacific slope? Will you inform us why he voted against the equalization of bounties in 1875, and against the arrears of pensions act in 1884, which his party pledged itself to paBB? Why did he oppose the passage of the bill to increase the pension to $24 a month of soldiers who lost an armand were only receiving $18 per month? and why did he vote against Logan's bill to limit the pension of any soldier, sailor or marine to the minimum of $6 per month?" The Sherman people treat the efforts of this "self-appointed labor commit tee," as they term it, with contempt, and express indignation that Sherman is accused of unfriendliness to the ex uniou soldier. While all these •hargM and refutations serve aa a aubjeat for lively discussion, it is becoming appar ent that neither the labor organizations nor the Farmers' Alliance are a factor in the present campaign. ONE MORE VOTE FOB SHERMAN. The Iden-Gaumer contest waa brought to a haaty conclusion thia afternoon, without a proteat from Foraker sena tors against tbe seating of Iden. This assures Sherman one more vote. Five minutes after the oath of office waa ad ministered to him Iden announced to the Aasociated Press: "I'm for Sher man for senator, and want it distinctly understood." Chicago Board of Trade KJectlon. Chicago, Jan. 4.—The vote cast today in the election of officers of the Chicago board of trade exceeded any in the his tory of the organization. The fight waa mainly on preaident, Jerome G. Steever, the regular nominee, being defeated by the "opposition" candidate, Charlea B. Hamill, by a majority of 1186. For second vice-preaident, the only other conteated office, R. A. Chand ler was announced defeated by Michael Cudahy by two votes. The con teat was so close that a recount was ordered. No sharply defined prin ciple waß at stake, but the impression existed that the " opposition" ticket would not frown upon the houses wish ing to send information to cuatomera by private wire. The following were elected without oppoaition : Firet vice preaident, Jas. T. Rawleigh : directory; Thos. A. Wright, Lloyd Smith ; chair man of appeal committee, Wm. T. Baker; arbitrators, John R. Hodaon, William Nash. A Chines* Order for Arms. New Haven, Ct., Jan. 4.—The Chi nese ambassador to tbe United Statea, with two secretariea and an interpreter, arrived in this city at noon today from Washington. The party visited the Marlene Repeating Arms company's factory. It ia understood the minister placed a large order for rifles, but be yond acknowledging the fact the officera refused to discuss tbe matter. ANYTHING TO BEAT HILL NEW YORK REPUBLICANS IN A DES PERATE BTRAI r. The Bosses Hold a Council of War Bat Are Unable to Devise a Flan by Which to Prevent the Hill Democrats From Organizing the Legislature. New York, Jan. 4.—Senator James T. Edwards, who defeated Perry Vedder in the Chautauqua district, is today the biggest fish in the political swim which engages the attention of the political leaders of the state, lie is bigger than the legislature itself, for without him the senate c tnnot organize with a kgal quorum. The Democrats have sixteen senators, but it takes seventeen to make a quorum. Senator Edwards himself an independent Republican, but has been quoted as saying he would sit with tbe Democrats to organize the senate tomorrow. Fifteen out-and-ont Republican senitcrß, Baid to favor the plan of absenting them selves tomorrow to prevent a quorum, held a meeting here today in conjunc tion with Piatt and other leaders to determine what to do. United States Senator Hiscock was aleo present. Ed wards had been invited to meet with them, and bis failure to respond iB re garded aa ominous. After a lengthy discussion, all the Republicans agreed on one point, and that is unless Ed wards refuses to aid the Democrats in organizing the senate, it will be useless for the other Republican senators to re main away. S .me philosophical Re publicans profess to be indifferent aa to Edward's attitude Aa to his standing on the contest between Walker (Dem.) and Sherwood (Rep.) in the Twenty eighth district, Edwards is aaid to have stated he would not vote for Walker; that no man should be admitted to the eenate who had 1040 votea leas than hiß opponent, and that the electors of the district should have another election Most of tbe senators left tonight for Albany. The corridors of the Fifth-avenue.hotel were crowded all morning with Repub lican senators and politicians. They spent all day deviaing means to over come Hill's majority iv the senate. The general opinion eeema to be tbat any thing ia lair that can prevent the auccess of Hill in his efforts to Beat enough Dena ocrata to control the under branch of the legislature. Albany, Jan. 4. —Late tonight an Aa aociated Press reporter met Senator Ed wards, and the latter said he would cer tainly at— l the senate meeting to morrow. \ The Democratic assemblymen tonight, caucused, naming Robert P.

Graves' Accomplice Has Left Denver for Parts Unknown Denver, Jan. 4.—Colonel Ballou, the lawyer from Providence, R. 1., con nected with the Graves-Barnabv case, is missing. He took a train foi Chicago when the verdict waa rendered, and probably arrived there this morning. When seen by an Associated Press re porter this afternoon, Dr. Gravea em phatically reiterated hia denial of hav ing made a confeaaion. He cays Dep uty Sheriff Wilson came in aud woke him up at 3:30 in the morning, and said he had just come from District Attorney Stevens, and that Stevens advised Gravea to make a confession implicat ing Ballou, Baying it would help him out. Gravea says he refused to make any statement. Wilson still maintained that the doc tor confessed, but Deputy Means re fuses to talk on the subject. It ia asserted that a detective in the employ of John Conrad, the late Mra. Barnaby'9 aon-in-law, ia following Bal lou on hia eaatern trip. No warrant for Ballou'a arreat has been issued, but the grand jury is now in session and it ia asserted they are examining the deputy sheriff regarding the alleged confession. Mra. Ballou ia here and quite ill. Dr. Gravea' wife has been out of her head most of the time since the verdict was rendered, and to day was continually raving about the doctor being hanged. His mother bearß the trouble with more fortitude. It has been charged by the defense that the jury was unduly in fluenced during the trial by having ac cess to the daily papers, but the jurors alrenuoualy deny thia. When the grand jury adjourned at a late hour this evening, it waa learned tbat nothing had been done in regard to indicting Ballon. Dr. Gravea caused a surprise tonight by atating that Ballou had come to him Saturday night, last, and told him he was going to leave town, because he waa afraid of being arrested if he stayed any longer. When the" doctor gave this in formation, he auddenly became reticent, and nothing further could be learned from him. Bt. Louis, Jan. 4. —A. special dispatch from Denver says: John Conrad, a wit nes for the state in the Graves Barnaby case, speaking of Colonel Ballou's il ght, today said: "Although Ballou fled, it is as easy to bring him back as it was for him to disappear. I will follow him to the uttermost parts of the world " Chicago. Jan. 4 —Nothing has been seen here of Colonel Ballou, the lawyer connected with the Graves-Barnaby case. CON9UL.IDA.TKD Ci-CItS. Tbe Fate of the New Baseball Scheme by No Means Settled. San FrAncisco, Jan. 4.—The Pacific coast baseball consolidated scheme is by no means an accomplished fact yet. There is dissension among the baseball magnates. While President More and Managers Finn, Harris, Rockwell and Hardie are in favor of the plan, Man agers Robinson and Hudson are op posed, and Mrs. Vice would like to know what she paid $1500 for if it wasn't for the Sacramento franchise. How Magnate Bushnell stands Is not entirely known, but he will be in favor of con solidation if he can be convinced that it will not prove a failure. The matter all rests with the Souther- Pacifi com pany. If the railroad will give tne rate FIVE CENTS. asked by the baseball managers, the scheme will go through. If not, it will fail. Manager Rockwell, who is president, secretary and treasurer of the league, said today: "There will be no further meeting of the managers on the matter for some time at least. The matter has been canvassed at length, and all the parties at present in this city are in favor of consolidation, providing we can get a suitable rate from the railroad company. We will get an answer from the company Wednesnay, and then Mr. Hardie and Mr. Vanderbeak will return north and see Bushnell and Hudson. Then a decision will be reached. Of course, if the railway company refuees to give us a rate by which we can keep the clubs traveling at long distances without making a financial loss, tbe whole scheme will fall through. Hudson, who owns half of the Portland club, opposes consolidation on account of the 50 per cent division of the gate receipts, but that is the only plan on which the consolidation can be carried through. The schedule, I ad mit, is intricate and peculiar, but it is a good one and I think will please every one. The season opens with all the clubs playing in California for six weeks. Then all go north for three weeks. Then they change around, some north and some south. The senson will end as it began, in California. Mr. Vanderbeck was formerly an owner in tbe Portland club. He has been down to Los Ange les and will probably be at the head of tbe duo in that city. In that case the six clubs will be Loa Angeles, San Jose. San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Tacoma."
