Insultto Anerlcins by Chilians Calls^lor an Apology.
AdditionalNews About tha Kill^^ing of tha Sailor of tha^Steamer San Fran^^cisco.
Washington.Oct. 24 ^Further per^^sistent inquiry of officer* of tha govero-^meut in regard to the Valparaiso iucident,^^bows conclusively tbe administration^does not regard It a simple street brawl^for which the Chilian government cannot^be be d responsible, but as an insult to^the honor and fisg of the United States^calling for the most vigorous diplomatic^treatment. The official report by Captain^Schley shows clearly, not only the^assault upon American sailors^was cowardly and unprovoked, but^inspired purely by the haired for tha^uniform tbry wore and tha country it^represented, or, in other words, was not^an attack on them as individuals, but as^representatives of tha United Slates.^The report also indicates that the local^police, instead of protecting the Ameri^^cans from the violence of the mob, in^several instances aided in the onslaught.^^This,^ the report says, ^is demonstrated^by the fact that several sailors were^wounded by bayonets, such ss are^usually carried by the Chilian police.
Thefact that the only persons arrested^were the M American sailors who escaped^injury at the hands of tiie mob, strength*^eus the view that the assault was intended^as an insult to the United States. Infor^^mation at band shows that so far none of^the Chilians concerned In the attack have^been arrested, and so fsr as known no^steps were taken to punish them in any^way for this action. The authorities at^Washington are very indignant at the ap^^parent indifference displayed by tha^t'ml an government, and Minister Egan^has been instructed to take prompt and^vigorous measures to secure proper repar^^ation. Ho has been fully advised^of the position of this gcvarnment^and lias been instructed to acquaint^the Chilian government there witn the^hope the matter tnsy bo amicably ad^^justed without detriment to tha honor of^either country. It is understood the^president insists upou proper redress for^the supposed insult to our national honor,^and unless given within a reasonable^time Minister Egan mill be recalled and^all diplomatic relations in Chili sus^^pended. Secretary Tracy said this after^^noon no more vessels had been ordered^to Ch.il and he did not know tbat any^would tic sen*. The Yorktown is now on^her wsy there and tha Boston is starting.^Neither c.-.n reach there within a month.^The Sun Francisco Is at Callas, only four^days' sail from Valparaiso, but has not^been ordered there. Neither baa another^available vessel, the Thetis, now at San^Francisco. Tho sailing orders of Boston^and Yorktown were issued b fore the^attack on the sailors and the main pur^^pose of their detail was to relieve the^Baltimore and San Francisco, which^vessels ure to go to Sau Francisco when^relieved to be docked and overhauled, it^would seem, then fore, the government^does not care to ninke m y belligerent^demonstration towaids Chili, but prefers^to show its displeasure through diplo^^matic channels.

Wamiihotok,ObS 24 ^Secretary Tracy^asid tin* morning that further study of^the cipher dispatch received from Cap^tain Schley of the Haiti more, Thursday,^in regard to the recent assault upon^American sailors at Valparaiso, showed^tbat in addition to killing one mail and^seriously wounding sis others, 35 other^American seamen were arrested and de-^tamed by the Chilian authorities at the^same time, aud they wcro afterwards ex^arained nnd dismissed. There is no proof^that they had been guilty of any misbe^uavior. This confirms Captain Schley's^other statement that the Americans ware^unarmed, sober and well behaved at the^tune of the trouble, aud also indicates^that at least 40 men out of the Baltimore's^contingent of 276 men were objects of the^rage ot the Chilian mob. It also appears^now that up to tha date of Captain^Schley's report the Chilian authorities had^taken no steps to arrest and punish any^of the Chilians responsible for tho affair,^or, at any rate, no Chilians had been ar^rrsted or tbat a movement of the wheels^of Justice had op -rated in any other direc^^tion than against ths Americans.
Anofficial thoroughly familiar with all^the fact* in possession of the govern^^ment in regard to the Valparaiso affair,^pointed out this morning tbat it was al^^together different iii its material feature^from the Italian affair at Nsw Orleans.^In tho latter case ibe men asssulted were^domiciled hem and were practically citi-^sens of the I'uitcd States. At any rate^they Itore n ^ official relation to the gov^eminent of Italy. In the Valparaiso ease,^on the other hand, tho men attacked^were in the uniform of the Unltrd States^government and were attacked simply^because they were Americans. The of^^ficial raid tho attack on them w^s a de^^liberate insult to the American flag and^could be regarded in no other way.
SecretaryTyary bad an interview with^th ^ iresident this morning in regard to^the matter, but refuses positively to say^what the p!au of action is which has been^agreed upon. It ia known tbat tbe ad^^ministration regards tbe situation as^most serious and that the incident is not^one that can be overlooked as a simple^street row. While no other vessels have^been or-1,wed to proceed to Chili to en^force the demand for reparation that will^probably bo made, it ia likely the uaval^force in Chilian waters will he reinforced^unless this government receives some u^surance from the Chilian government^that p'oper justice will l^ ^ mete.I out to

Schmidt accused Camp^^bell of using fraudulent means to secure^Bell's conviction and bit own release,^aud declared he had a good reason to be^^lieve Bell never committed ths crime for^which be is to hang.

Bismarck's attitude to^^wards cemmercial treaties snd upon tbe^labor question and bis opposition to the^government's policy in tbess matters oc^^casions no surprise. Indications of bis^intention to challenge tbe government's^foreign policy, end even to go to the^length of revealing Ibe secrets between^himself and tbe emperor, bss alarmed^both bis friends and tbe government eir-^c'e. The Hamburgker .Suikrich'r.n, Bis*^marck's organ, declares the prince is en^^tering upon a parliamentary conflict be^^tween himself snd tbs emperor. Anampblet^written by Lotbair Bucher, undoubtedly^under the direction cf Bismarck, has^made its appearance. It abounds in com^^plaint* and threat* directed against tbe^emperor as altering Germany's foreign^policy to tbe psril of tbe existence of the^empire. What tend* to excite alarm in^ministerial circles regarding Ibe prince's^schtming, is tbs knowledge of tho fact^that tbe ex-chancellor baa tbe backing of^tbe plenipotentiaries of Bavaria and^Wurteroburg and the partial support of^Ssxony in tbe bundesrath.

The employers sent^^mi*sanes to Austria to engage composi^^tors to All tbe vacancies in esse of a^strike.
