Washington,Oct. SI.^Sen or Moult,^Chilian milliliter at Washington, desire*^to slate, upon information iu his posses^^sion, tbat tbe reports published recently^of ill feeling bulween tue Chilian people^and the Americans domiciled amons^them, is sensational and absolutely with^^out foundation in fact. Ho holds the^Bait.more incident was unduly magnified^and sees no reason to doubt that a ^et-^1 leir.ent of the questions at issue between^tbe governments o( Chili and tbs Cnited^Mates will be reached in a manner bon-^ornble to both sides. NewYcRk, Oct. 31^The Chilian^trouble shows Us ^ ltd at the Brooklyn^navy yard in tun renewed activity being^displayed in fitting out all tbe vessels^now there. The number of men engaged^011 tbe monitor Miantcnomah has been^increased and from a conversation with^her officers it is learned she could bo got^ready for sea within 10 days If the occa^^sion should r^quire it. Khe is classed by^all officers as tue moil formidable ship in^the navy, and if necessary she could be^in Chilian waters within two month*. Arumor got abroad yoiiorday that an^order had been sent lrom Secretary Tracy^to the Brooklyn navy yard to have three^ships sail as soon as possible for Chili, hut^Captain Krben, thu commandant of the^navy yard, denied that he had received^such orders. It is learned that three^ship*, the Philadelphia. Concord and the^Kciirsurge, are being prepared to leave^on Tuesday for the West Indies. A ship^going from New York to Chili generally^makes her first slop at St. Thomas, so it^is possible that there may b^ st m .* con^^nection between the rumored orders from^Washington and the departure of these^three sups. TbeI out says tnat a gentleman in this^city who was infoimcd yesterday of the^demand of Chili as to Minister Kg 111,^ssys he received to-day au authoritative^dispatch from Washington announcing^that B aine had 1 romised Senor Mott thai^the United Stales legation would be put^in charge of its secretary next Monday. Thereis nothing indicative of a change^in the Chilian situation this aftcrnotn.^S o far us learned there has been uo^further exchange of dispatches between^this government and its representatives^in ( hili. Aspecial dispute]! fro-n W^^riir,^^^or^ l^^the Com:.x*. ciul Acntrliger says: Secretary^Blaine last night inlorined S.-nor Monti,^the Chilian representative at Washington,^that this government will insist upon rep^^aration f ^r tbe insul's of Chili, and that^we are prenared to exercise force if neces^^sary 10 sreuro it. Wasiiingtoh,Oct. 31.^The report t*l-^egrapiieu lrom New York thlt afternoon^ills'. Secretary lilaine hud promised^Senor Moult that the United Slates legu-^i nn would he put 111 charge o! its si en -^tiny, fails to find continuation hero. On^the other hand slate dcpjrllm-nt iolllcials^mentioned the fact tli.it there is no secre^^tary attached to thu United Slates liga^^tion at Santiago. Asthe bngiish press continues lo criii-^cise the attitude of this gcAernment re-^six ct.ng Chill and contrasts it wi'h the^forbearance cxlubitod by England in like^cases, lbs following incident is cited as^an illustration of lb* British method of^adjudicating similar differences with^anialier nations: In lfM the governor of^a llnlish colony at Triuidad wrote lo the^governor of Vennuela requiring Ibe pay^^ment of the cla im of two Priiish^vcseli which lit 1 been Based by^ibe Venezuelan government lor alleged^violialion, notifying Venesuela that uti^^le, s payment was mado in seven days^ill aMires would be taken to collie;^^unity. The Vuticiuclun minister of^foreign affairs called together the diplo^^matic corp', aipaling 10 them to exert^tiieir good cfllucs to prevent tliecljjin-^ineui of tins claim in such a summary^manner. B fore it could be properly ex^^amined and adjudicated, ibe diplomatic^corps declined 10 interfere, saying the^matter must be arranged between the^two countries interested. Meanwhile the^British tquadron made preparations to^enforce the dimatid, w hereupon Hie^Vein inelan gcvtiiiiiieut, protesting^against the injustice of the claim, and^appealing publicly to the nations of the^world against the summsry methods^adopted by Great Britain, paid over^140,000, yielding, as Ibey said, to fuperior^strength and not to reason or justice. Santiago.Oct. 31^ Though there were^no new developments to-dsy, the political^atmosphere shows no signs of a clearing.^The junta thrtugh iis organs is now^claiming the police of Valparaiso were in^no way at fsult in airesting the sailors of^tbe Baltimore or in Iheir subsequent^treatment of tbera. This, with other mat^^ter*, notably the rxprctatirn that Minis^^ter Egan will soon he directed by tbe^slat* department ut Washington to pres^^ent an ultimatum to the junta, is natur^^ally causing great excitement. Til possibilities of sere u^ trouble wilb^tb^ United Mates bss lead Chilian* into^what may turn out a dangerously delusive^belief. Trity reem of tbe opinion an alli^^ance with Great Unci 111 could lie termed;^Hide d-h- Chilians or* already gravely^discussing the possibilities and probabili^^ties nf rucb M alliance between Cirli and^Gn at Britain against the I'mlfd States^The l*nlt^d S'a'cs legation is again^watched bv ibe police in the manner^adopted some weeks ago when the lega^^tion's right of asylum wss questioned. No^reason as far ss learned has been as-^sigr-ed lay this renewed surveillance^Probably the government takes this^mesns of keeping ful^y advised of all^wb 1 enter or leave li e 1 gallon, and also^to make the right of a ylmn difficult and^tryiug as possible. In any event il can^not be lost sight of that tins espionage is^annoying to members cf tbe United Slate*legation as well as to the Ameri^^can colony at large. Tbat tbe police on^duly near tbe American legation^are under instructions to make ar^^rest* of person* leaving tbat place in^certain contingencies, is manifest from^tbe fact tbat two ladies calling at Minis^^ter Egan's were placed uuder srrest last^nlgbt as they cama out Into tb* street.^After examination tbey were permitted^to depart. These conditions are magni^^fied by the condition* of public feeling^her* and by the statu* of negotiations be^^tween Ibe United Stale* and Chili, so it^i* not to be wondered Americana are feel^^ing uneasy and apprehensive something^serious msy happen. Members of tb*^Junta continue to ^ xpress the strongest^laeliDg against tb* United States. Aprominent member of the new gov^^ernment who holds a position in the cabi^^net to-day spoke la the moat unlnendly^manner concerning America and Ameri^^can*. He was particularly severe on^Minister Roan, who be bluntly accused^nf trying to provoke a war between the^United Stales and Chili in or^^der to secure glory for him^^self. On Ibe other band, however,^it is asserted by many persons con*^vers ant with particulars, that Egan has^don* nothing whatever in the matter of^its own responsibility, all bis actions^being guaranteed by orders which have^been sent him from the state department^at Washington; and furthermore, thee*^persons claim that Minister Egau mad*^efforts privately to maintain friendly re^^lation* between the two government*.^1 he report of the inlendente of Val^^paraiso says there were nearly I/O^men in tbe recent fight. Only 60 of this^number were Americans. Tbe inlendente^claim* the police wore blameless In the^affair, but notwithstanding this assertion,^there is tbe best of evitlence 10 prove^tbey were th* chief assailants of the^American sailor*. * THEVDON'T LIKE EGAN. ChiliansAccuse lbs American Minister^vt ttnfalreess. SanriHM isto, Oct. SI.^A letter from^Valparaiso, Chili, written two week* sub^^sequent to tbe downfall of the Halmaceda^government, ha* been received her*. It^recounts the fact that at tbe time feeling^of great bittern*** was being exhibled^toward United States Minister Evan and^American naval force*. The newspapers^asserted Egan had favored Balmaceda,^while conceding be had also protected^congreaslonalist adherents while Balma^^ceda was in power. The intimation that^Egan's son was interested in a railway^enterprise was also cited as a reason for^opposition, and ibe assertion wss made^that Egan himself intended embark^^ing in a commercial enterprise in Chili^when bis term of office expired, if Bal^^maceda was successtul. It wae acknowl^^edged no evidence cculd be adduced in^proof of these allegations, bat they were^printed and added to th* feeling animos^^ity In the popular mind against tb*^Americrn embassay. Thepapers also mad* an attack on the^American naval forces because of the^ltata incident, and tbe statement was re^^iterated thar Admiral Brown in bis flag^^ship from San Francisco bad given^warning of tbe la ndlng of congreesion-^alists ai Quinteros bay to Balmsceda'a^officers, even going so far as to state he^bad board bis ship n preventative of^Baltnace da's army. This was called to^Admiral Brown'i attention by Minister^Egan and the admiral replied at some^length, entering emphatic denial of the^charges made by Chilian papers. Admiral^Brown says ^l.eti be went ashore on tbe^rooming of the -On. as was his^custom to lake walk, lie met a govern^^ment officer who told him the opposition^had made a lauding at Quinteros. The^admiral proceeded to tbe ^ Mice of Hal-^macula's adm ral, Vieel, who gave him^particulars of lb* lauding of tb* congres^^sional ists. There was no secret about it;^everyoue one on thaatreets of Valparaiso^knew it. When Brown went back 10 bis^II igsbip be told tb* German admiral and^tue senior British officer he was going to^Quiulcros bay. and would take an ollici r^iron their vessel if tiny desired. Th*^German ai'miral sent one. Seeing no^evidence if battle near Qunintero, Ad^^miral Browu returned to Valparaiso late^in the afternoon and sent a cablegram to^the navy department. The officer who^went on shore with tbe dispatch told^tbe admiral that everyone, knew th*^opposition had reached Acoiicacua river,^in fact obtained more information than^the admiral bad. Th* latter gave no in^^formation whatever of what h* bad ob^^served, and the crew of lb* boat which^went a*bore were cautioned to answer^no questions. Admiral Brown's letter^was published in Valparaiso and Santi^^ago paicrs, but the orig.nal charges^were reiterated, and in fact officials of^Balmaceda's government bad been given^protection on American war sblpi was^cited as further proof of American hostil^^ity, although tue same course bad been^pursued by the German admiral.
