WHAT A NEW YORK HERALD REP 'RESENTATIVE FOUND OUT He Says Harrison Will Ask Congnw to Wtrnet Him to Declare War—Both Army and- Nayy Beady—Large Quanti ties of Ammunition Shipped to San Francisco. NEW YORK, Dec. 28.—The Washing ton correspondent of the New York Herald telegraphs that paper as follows: "I have obtained the most valuable in formation that has yet been made public regarding the Chilian affair. There is no question that the administration fully expects a refusal of Chili to com ply with the demands for an apology and indemnity, and has decided to ask congress for power to declare war, for which preparations have been and are still being made. Chili, feeling that she is right, is uetermined not to apologize, even at the cannon's mouth. Such is the situation upon the diplomatic chess board. May Ask for Arbitration. Chili has not yet asked for arbitration, but it is known to the cabinet and to your correspondent that she is likely to do so. Minister Montt, the Chilian min ister here,has all along seriously doubted the intention of this government to de-' clare war in the event of Chili's refusal to accede to our demands. To-day, however, he realizes his misttke, and the result was that he cabled to Presi eent Montt that the situation here was very serious, that this government meant fight, and that the navy was rap idly being Placed on a War Footing. -This in itself is startling news and there is more of the same sort. Not only has the navy been made available in event of hostilities but great activity has taken place in the army, and both de partments are now ready to act in con cert at a moment's notice. I have it that Admiral Gherardi will be placed in command of naval forces. It is also pretty definitely settled that General Miles will have command of tho land forces. The plans have already been made to Promptly Move 10,000 Troops. The men have been selected, the trans ports provided, and all is ready to place this force on Chilian soil very soon after war is formally declared. It is proposed to take these troops from the regular .service, Tho "HCsatero iar^ which they will leave, New York and other large cities where troops are not needed, will be garrisoned by militia and volunteer frontiersmen. The troops will leave the United states from several different points. Some will embark at San Fran cisco, others at Galveston, New Orleans, Key West and other Southern ports. Montt Is Cautious. Of course, a proposition to arbitrate would seriously interfere with all this. Minister Montt, who is an exceedingly cautious man, who knows the difficulties of advising the home government when it is not believed that this govern ment means war, has at last suggested to President Montt the propriety and the advisability of asking this govern ment to lay the facts in connection with the Baltimore case before aboard of arbitration. I am told that there is considerable doubt as to just how this suggestion would be received. Shipped Ammunition. WASHINGTON, Dec. 28.—The navy de partment has ordered the shipment tf 42,000 pounds of prismatic powder and 11,000 six inch shells from League Island, Pennsylvania, to San Francisco. The department has also ordered the new twelve inch gun made at the Wash ington navy yard to be sent to San Francisco. The gun will be placed on a large fiat car and taken to the Pacific coast as soon as possible. THE BEHRING SEA CASE. Arbitrators Will Be Announced Soon. A Senator's Opinion. NEW YORK, Dec. 28.—The Evening Telegram publishes the following under Washington date: It is believed that the court of arbitrators in the Behring sea case will be announced soon. Our government will select France and it is believed that England will select Italy. These powers will select a third. As the sealing season will not open until June there is no great hurry. A prominent member of the foreign affairs committee of the senate, who has been consulted in every stage of the Behring sea case, said that it is not to be expected that the decision made by the commission would be mutually sat isfactory to both the United States and England. "It is only a question of time," said the senator, "until we will be com pelled to go to war with England to settle the question of our northern boundary. We are not ready for war now with a great power, but we will have to have one sooner or later and we have no time to lose in establishing a good navy and a system of coast de fences. Of course we could whip Eng land on land. Congress, I believe, will appreciate our position toward England and will see the necessity of making liberal appropriations for the immediate improvement of our navy." SEVENTY SLAUGHTERED. British and Tribesmen Have a Bloody Fight Opposite Fort Nilt. SIMLA, Dec. 28.—Advices from Gilgil state that fifty Kashmira under Lieuten ant Manners Smith, supported by fifty other Kashmjrs, succeeded in scaling the precipice opposite Fort Nilt and cap tured the stone breastwork after a des perate engagement, in which 70 of the enemy were killed many wounded, 118 captured, and the remainder put to flight. Captain McKenzie pursued the fleeing tribesmen so closely that they could not make anew formation and were completely routed. The British occupied Mayoun, .Sulmit and Pisen. They had only four men wounded and none killed. The enemy's loss is not known.. The Khan of Nisgars has sub mitted to the British. SCHEME FOR REVENGE. Mr. Milla Will Introduce a Tariff Bill aad Have It Keferred to His Committee. WASHINGTON, Dec. 25.—The friends of Mills, the Texan being sick, are now trying to fix up something that will enable him to circumvent and confound his Democratic enemies who have placed him and his tariff' reform idea in the rear of the procession. He is at the head of the interstate and foreign commerce committee, and his friends say that he will at the earliest opportunity intro duce a general tariff bill and move that it be referred to his committee. Some of the speaker's friends area good deal annoyed over this threat. It would give an opportunity To Test the Sense of the Democratic members as to whether or not a general tariff bill should be reported, and it is not im probable that Mills might carry the house on such a motion. If such bill should be referred to his committee, it is said that a majority of the Demo cratic members of it would vote with him to report it favorably. In fact, should it go to his committee, there is no question but that the bill would be favorably reported to the house, and Mills might after all have charge of the tariff question instead of Springer. The threat of the Mills men does not appear to be an idle one. There is good ground for believing that it will be car ried into execution. ELEVEN VICTIMS. Tbe List of Dead Caused by the Accident at Hasting', If. Y„ Growing larger. YONKERS, N. Y., Dec. 25.—A shock ing accident occurred during the even ing on the New York Central between the St. Louis express and the Niagara Falls special train.

Four of the Crew of the Steamship Ocean Queen Swept Overboard. NORFOLK, Va„ Dec. 30.—Captain Hopkins, of the British steamer Ocean Queen,- which has just arrived, reports having encountered a terriffic gale in mid-ocean on Monday, Dec. 21, Four of the crew were lost. Captain Hopkins reports that on the next morning he sighted a large ocean steamer flying signals of distress. The vessel to all appearances was a passenger steamer, bound from Liverpool to New York. Owing to a dense fog the Ocean Queen was unable to go to her rescue. When the fog lifted nothing more was seen of the distressed steamer. A ships compass, encased in CQrk, was picked up afterward. Captain Hopkins is positive that the steamer was wrecked.

Department Order* General Stan ler lo Take Decisive Action Against Intruders. SAN ANTONIO, Tex.j Dec. 28.—The forces ot the Garza revolutionists in Northern Mexico and along the Texas side of Rio Grande border are rapidly increasing. According to present indi catioife the numerous detachments are moving toward Cammarago, Mexico, where thef will concentrate and then proceed in a body toward the interior. Therfcjwas another engagement during the ii%ht between Garza's followers and a regiment of Mexican troops at the San Mnacis ranch, near Carrizo, Tex. The fight was at long range, the Mexi can troops being located on their side of the river, while the revolutionists were on the Texas side. One of the govern ment soldiers was killed and a number on bgth 6ides badly wounded. The revolutionists were making their way towards Cammarago, about 200 being in detachments, and were some distance fron^the border when discovered and attached by the Mexican troops. The revolutionists retreated, keeping up a running fire and escaped across the river into Texas, making a bold stand on this side. The telegraph wires have been^ut between Rio Grande City and Brovjnsville. The first news of the en gagement to reach here came in at dis patch to Dr. Plutarch Irneiae, the Mexican conbul, from the Mexican con sul at Laredo. 4 To Take Decisive Steps. The secretary of war has telegraphed General David S. Stanley, commander of this mslitary department, to take deci sive ind immediate steps toward put ting down the troubles on this side o± the border. In addition to the United States troops doing field duty in the tur buletffc sections there are large forces of state Rangers and United States deputy marshals stationed at various points between Eagle Pass and Brownsville.- Th^re has been no official word re ceives at the department headquarters from?

Captain Francis Hardie, of the United States Third cavalry, has been heard fro^t through Captain John G. Bourke, ^rho^s command at Fort Ringgold. ^jieral Stanley, commander of this* department,sent a number of dispatches to the different post commanders along the border instructing them all to take the field with detachments of their forces and scout for the revolu tionists. An order was also r sued by General Stanley for the United States troops stationed at this post to be prepared to leave for the scene of the trouble at a moment's notice. The transportation and other arrangements are now being made for them to leave here on a special train in the morning. They will be distributed along the bor der at the different posts thus strength ening the military guards. The order produced much excitement at the post here. In addition to the the increase in the military protection, the entire Ranger force of the state is to be sent to the frontier. FIVE OF THEM DEAD. Si^nmary Justice Dieted Out to Several .of the Notorious Sims Gang. MOBILE, Ala., Dec. 28.—Bob Sims and twb members of his bloodthirsty gang named Thomas and John Savage were lynched in Choctaw county by a mob. John Savage, a son of Thomas, was only 19 years of age. The Sims gang had been guilty of many crimes, the culmi nation coming on Thursday, when the McMillan family was murdered because of some trouble about land. The people of Choctaw county, tired of the Dloody doings of Bob Sims and his crew, de termined that no appeal to law was tol erable at this time, and that summary justice must be meted out. They had surrendered to the sheriff and posse up on promise of the latter to protect them. This promise, however, the sheriff was unable to fullfil and they were taken from him and hung to trees, their bodies being riddled with bullets. Two More Strung Up.
