NEW YORK Dec 2Correspondence of tho
Associated press by mail from Chi under date

tation against Americans and particularly

of Santiago and Valpariaso have been publish
ing American press comments
are still bring kept up and tho papers are mak
ing much of the dispatch from Admiral Vial
former intcndente to Balmaceda the day after
the landing of the troops at Quintero In it
AdmIral Vial informs Balmaceda that
Admiral Brown expressed tho belief
the Congressional troops would not
reembarkiAtthat time tho government forces
were inclined to believe the landing of the
troops at Quintoro was merely a feint and that
they intended to reembark and effect another
landing soath of Valpairso The objest In pub
lishing this dispatch Is to give the impression
Admiral Brown gave information to Vial in regard

which assisted Balmaceda in arranging his
plans to resist attack arrangng

thies were with tho Congressional party during
the war express indignation a the conduct of
tie provisional government in regard to certain
matter is which the American government is
interested and also the hostile attitude of the
public toward the United States Rolerring to
the correspondence says the attack was
brutal and cowardly in the extreme and it is
believed it was made merely becavso the men
vi ere Americans There is also good reason to
believe the affair was premeditated The at
tack was made not only by sailors of the ChUan
war ships and boatmen and other rough char
acters who infest low saloons along the water 1
front but also by the police of Valparaiso who
made no effort to stop the disturbance but
oined in the assault upon the American sailors
Up to date of the letter tho correspondence
was still going on regarding the refugees in the
egation the American and Spanish legations
b elnf the only ones containing refugees The
panish minister has five of Balmadedas sup
porter under his protection and has taken the
s arne stand as Egan and during the cotroversy
a cted in harmony with him at nl times
A sensation has been created by the publica
ion of a notice by three brothers of Alduseate
minister of foreign relations under Balmaceda
who surrendered alter the fall of Valparaiso
and who was afterwards killed and his dead
body left on the roadside mutilated in
a horrible manner A explanation was
made at the time by those in
whose charge he was that he had been
hot while attempting to escape H three
brothers who were active members of the Con
gressional party now announce they have dis
covered beyond a doubt he was deliberately
murdered They demand an official inveatiga

John C Eno Will Return from
Canada to New York
A Fugitive from Justice Seven Years ills
Connection With tho Skull and Bones
Society Said to Havo Helped Him
Specialto THE HERALD Examine Dispatch
NEW YORK Deo 2It is understood in club I
circles that John C Eno expresident of the
Fifth National bank who has been a fugitive
from New York justice In Canada for seven
years has arranged his affairs and will be able
to return to New York early ia the winter or
not later than March Dr Enos father Amos
R Eno i the owner of the Fifth Avenue hotel
property which was mortgaged in 1SS4 for
about 52000000 to save tho Fifth National bank
dents from failure as a result of its fast young presi
After sensational Grant Ward and Ma
rine bank failures i was found that the Fifth
National was about insolvent Its president
Johnny who had been hail fellow well met
for years was found to be practically a de
faulter for nearly SCOOOuO Though Enos
father and William Walter Phelps pledged
their fortunes to save the creditors from loss
Eno was obliged to go to Canada t escape ar
rest Now Yorkers traveling near Toronto
have since seen him living in luxurious exile
following every foim of social pleasure and dis
sipation as of old and as popular in a
fast Canadian set as he used to
be among New York club men He has never
however feared criminal processes of the
courts but has always felt that Ithe could com
pound with bis creditors he would bo able to
escape criminal prosecution I is reported
that Eno has recently visited New York sev
eral times in the past nine months and mot his
creditors or their representatives and made
and managed to escape the vigilant detectives
who were watching has always been a mystery
Those who know huh best assert that it is duo
almost entirely to the fat that young Eno was
a member of the Skull and Bones society of
Yale college This is an organization which
I has something of tho strength of Free Masonry
I professes to elect fifteen of the leading man
of the senior class to its membership every
year Its Influence in Yale college though
quiet is prodigious No member of this society
has ever brought scandal upon It until Eno was
indicted for dishonesty The membership of
the society includes some of tho most influ
ential men who have graduated from Yale col
lege in the last sixty years Mr John
C Eno was a member of the class
of 1869 at Yale He was the recipient
of the wooden spoon which was given to
the man who by popular vote was regarded as
the finest gentleman in his class That honor
insured tho election of its recipient to the Skull
and Bones society Whottiorjthe society exerted
its influence to save itself from the disgrace
which the prosecution and imprisonment of
Eno would have entailed Is of course a question
which only the members know but it is certain
that since Enos arrest and his umpinghis ball
and his residence in Canada somo influences
have been brought to bear which cannot be at
tributed entirely to the wealth or his family If
Eno returns he vU probably be arrested al
though it is understood that it Is his Intention
to deliver himself to tho district attorney
as it was in the cases of tho boodle aldermen
when they returned and Mr Enos friends
think that this will bo tho end of the criminal
prosecution because in seven years it is almost
impossible to get the evidence which was in tho
possession of the district attorneys office when
Boo escaocd Eno has made a good deal of
money since he has been in Quebec and it is
gossip at the Manhattan ciub that he is now
worth not far from 81000000

Treasurer Nebekers Report
Shows a Falling Offi
Surplus Revenues Cut Down Over SixtyEight
Millions Comptroller Laceys Ueport
on National Bank Operations
WASHINGTON Dec 2Treasurer of the
United States Nebeker has submitted his an
nual report to Secretary Foster Tne ordinary r
revenues of the government for the past fiscal I
year were 5293412147 or 10408533
The net ordinary expenditures exclusive of
amounts paid in premium on bonds purchased
8355813634 an increase of 457638103 The sur
plus revenues were thus cut down from S105
344493 to 837839769 which last summer was
applied to the reduction of tho public debt
Tho postal revenues amounted to 85762903 3
and the expenditures to 872007550 an in
crease of about 55000000 on both sides
The reduction effected during the year In the
principal of the bonded debt and circulating
notes which cannot be reIssued amounted to
110590273 and required an expenditure of
1126991994 including premiums on bonds pur
chased This sum was made up by taking
5fe9751731 from tho reserve In the treasury In
addition to the surplus revenues of the year
Tho consequent reduction In the annual interest i
charge was 14332092
According revised figures tho
on the SOth of June exclusive of certificates in I
circulation for treasury held deposits was
Sl070178102 of which 3183412019 belongs to the
treasury and 1 < l4 was 9i circulation
There was a net loss of 49030000 of gold a net
gain of upwards of 40OCOOJO of other money
and a consequent contraction of about 9COUUUO
in the whole volume The treasurer computes
during the past ten years there has been an
average increase of 52200000 from the end of
June to December In the amount of money ac
tually in circulation followed by an average
decrease of SUHKJOOO from the end of Decem
ber to the end of June The increase
realized in the past year has been
nearly double this average of 838000000
and In the last two the average has been ex
ceeded by 43000003 Unusually large amounts
of notes of small denominations have been sent
out to the west and south since the 1st of July
chiefly For deposit In the subtreasury In New
York the aggregate up to the middle of
November rescued upward of 219000000 as
against 61003003 for the whole preceding year
Moasnreably I an improvement In the condition
of the coinage particularly in silver has been
effected nearly 1003000 of uncurrent coins in
the treasury having been
treasurJ restored to full
weight As a result of this and borne special
efforts in other directions the amount of frac
tional duced silver In tho treasury has beon much re
specify now coins I is believed but for the
prejudice against small coins showing any
signs of wear tho treasury would long since
have been relieved of a good portion of its lad
fractional silver The treasurer points out
that this prejudice in tho case of silver coins
is altogether groundless since they derive their
currency not trom weight but from the stamp
of the mint and are received at the treasury
for full value so long as tho stamp can be
recoanlzod provided loss of tho metal Is due to
natural wear Nearly J67000000 of national
bank notes have been redeemed an amount
much above tho average Deposits of new 2
per cents exceed withdrawals of old bonds
and there was an issue of new notes amounting
to about 7500000 amountng
Not Increase in the Circnlatinc Medium
WASHINGTON Deo 2A statement pre
pared by the treasury department

has been a net increase of 12789909 in the cir
culation since tho 1st of

tary contribution of the stockholders Tho af
fairs of 10 insolvent banks have been closed

Attention is called to the need of legislation
more clearly defining
Also to tho need of some further restriction
upon accommodations which may bo lawfully
afforded to officers and directors

loans and discounts
The comptroller discusses tho causes of the
monetary stringency of 1860 and the issue of

His Son Robs Him of All His
A Distinguished Career Closinj in Sorrow

An Honorable Life Disgraced
Special to THE HERALD Examiner Dispatch
NEW YORK Dec 2Edward M Field who
wrecked the firm of Field Lindley Weichers
i Co who has stripped his father Cyrus W
Field of all his possessions houses lands and
securities and upon whose lifo there i an in
lUranceof 8630000 has attempted suicide In
what manner ho sought to kill himself is not
I recIted in the papers on which he was com
mitted yesterday to the Vernon house at Mount
Vernon as
Judge McAdams of the superior court when
he reached his home last night was met by two
reputable physicians who asked him for a com
mitment to enable them to take Mr Field to
he asylum In the affidavits presented the
doctors swore that E M Field had tried to
kill himself The judge Issued the necessary
papers and Field was formally committed to
he asylum at Mount Vernon
Cyrus W Field who Is now it is feared
dying in his house on Grammercy park which
was his so long has been stripped of his pos
sessions by his mad son The following story
came from the lips of the Impoverished man
himself on his sick bed and is repeated by
the friend who heard it to illustrate
at the same time Mr Fields
integrity and the strange conduct of
Edward This friend attended the funeral of
Mrs Field At that time Cyrus had an idea
that the firm of which his son Edward was the
senior partner was In trouble He had no
clear Idea of the extent of the trouble but he
felt that disaster was impending His son Ed
ward had not given his father his confidence
but three days after the funeral
and told his father some of his difficulties As
the friend relates it Cyrus Field told metha
his son Edward came to him and said he must
have money to save him from ruin and dis
grace Ho must have money Immediately Hi
said he did not tell his father the extent of his
troubles He said he must have money to tide
him over for a short time Cyrus Field di
rected that the key to his private box should be <
handed to Edward and he told his son Then
is tho key to tho box containing my securities
Take enough of them my son to help you
through your troubles Edward Field took the
key and he furthermore took every security li
the box and Cyrus Field told me that he was
now as poor as on the day he entered the world
The mystery Is where all the money has son
on this occasion by Edward from his father was
in the noiehborhood of 300000 Assignee
Gould heard thestory of the skinning of Cyrus
W Fields strong box by his eon and expressed
his amazement Still he was prepared to be
lieve almost anything now Mr Gould paid a
high tribute to John F WIechers who had ap
parently lost aveay dollar he hd through Ed
ward Field The loss of Mr Weichors is put at
500000 and that of his father and uncle at
about 300000 more
Cyrus Field is Dying
NEW YORK Dec Fiftyone years ago to
day a New Englnnd youth knovn as Cyrus
West Field stood at the mama go altar full of
vigor hope and sturdy ambition His strength
made its Impress upon the century his hope
bore him up In his work and his ambition has
been rewarded with medals with knighthood
and with the thanks of the United States Con
gress Hand in hand the New England youth
ind his helpful wife came honorably down
through a half century of time almost to the
present day Little more than a week ago
however the woman he wedded on the day of
his majority died Tonight bereft of life and
wrecked In fortune and made penniless by the
hand of his Ingrate and disgraced son
at seventytwo years of ago in the handsome
homo that no longer shall DO his Edward M
Field the son who wrecked the firm of Field
itndley Welohers Co Is an inmate of Ver
non house a private asylum near the village of
Mount Vernon Mrs Edward M Field lies
dangerously ill at the home of her brother Dr
Lindley Mrs D A Llndley daughter of Cy
rus W Field is believed to bo on her death
bed This expresses in a few words the pitiful
condition of a family which a few weeks ago
was envied for Us wealth happiness and social
eminence The fact that today ia the
adds new sadness to the story of today Mem
bers of the family tonight came from the bed
side of Cyrus Field and raid Ho is com
pletely broken in health and spirit Bereft of
his wife his fortune and crushed by the fact
that his favorite eon financially ruined the
family and made a mental wrock of himself
the unfortunate old man feels that death would
be a welcome solace to him He feels his name
has been tarnished notwithstanding the fact ha
has sacrificed his all to keep his son from bank
ruptcy Dr Fuller the family physician
said Ho may linger for several days and he
may die in t few hours
Edward Field appealed to his father recently
for assistance to prevent the falure of the firm
all his resources having been used up His
father consented to assist him and authorized
him to take certain securities from his strong
box for that purpose The son however
there was in the box but even that did not pre
vent the firms downfall It is believed that
all that remained of Mr Fields once great for
tune before this fresh fall did not exceed 41000
000 and of that not a dollar Is left How much
Edward succeeded in getting from bin father Is
not known but it is said to have been WOOOOO
The balance was believed to have been In un
encumbered real estate of which his house
which ho sold this week formed part
That Cyrus W Field is now penniless recalls
the fact he was supposed to have been a special
partner in the firm of Field Llndley Welchers
Co for 500000 until March 1 last On that
date the firm reorganized and the senior Field L
is supposed to hove withdrawn this 1500000 It
Is now believed that this 1300000 if it existed at
all in that way was never withdrawn but was I
lost and that its loss brought about the reorgan
ization and Introduction of new members and I
that Edward M Fields speculative course con
tinued with the result that
as well as half a million belonging to his father
The statement frequently made by the assignee
that two partners Llndley and Witchere were
Innocent of all knowledge of the firms condi
tion and that it had been going on until failure
Is laughed at by bankers and orokers The re
mark made by Assignee Gould has been the sub
ject of much comment today Mr Gould said
It seems to mo that the greater part of the
money lost by the operations of E F Field was
lost right here by the partners in the firm
Still Gould could not begin to give any estimate
of the assets and liabilities of the defunct firm
To show the difficulties he labored under ho
said Suppose parties should come hero and
pay largo sums of money to one of the partners
and suppose this money was paid right out
again by that partner to other parties then
these transactions might not appear in the
books Now I have a suspicion this very thing
was taking place
Edward M Field after an alleged desperate
attempt upon his life has been removed to a
private Insane asylum at Mount Vernon by
order of Judge McAdam In their affidavits the
physicians declared Edward M Field Is a
lunatic dangerous to himself and to others
Members of the family deny that ho attempted
The Russell Divorce Case
LONDON Dec 2 Interest In the suit of
Countess Russell against her husband Earl
Russell for judicial separation was enhanced
by the publication of the proceedings yester
day Long before the opening of court every
seat was taken Immediately upon the open
ing of court Sir Charles Russell took up his
cross examination at the ooint where it was
broken off yesterday by the adjournment of
court Sir Charles put many questions to the
witness rgarding the relations between the
earl and Roberts and tried In everyway to lead
her to contradict herself Witness however
persisted in the statements she made yetter
day regarding Roberts She also repeated the
statements she made CQaoarnlng information
furnished her by Dowager Countess Russell
Lady Agatha Russell ana Rollo Russell
Dr Godson then took the stand and In ro
sponse to a question by Sir Charles said the
co was suffering from spasmodic djsmen
o a disease often accompanied by
hysteria The countess however was a strong
minded woman and the trouble was not likely
to cause hysteria in her case
Eliza Vale the maid who found tho countess
la a faint on the floor in her room testified on
this occasion she heard the countess pleading
with the earl Afterwards witness found her
mistress lying naked on the floor With the
presentation of this testimony evidence for the
countess closed
Sir Charles Russell then spoke In defense of
the earl Sir Charles in substance said ho
would limit himself to the broad issue of the
case The solo object of the present suit was
to force the payment of alimony by the earl
Sir Charles then proceeded rebut the charges
of cruelty He asked the jury not to be carried
away by the clever and engaging woman telling
them n story untrue in all Its essential details
The woman was so perverted as to put forward
the Roberts incident In order to support a hope
less case by odious Imputations These impu
tations Sir Charles declared wore made not
only against another man but whose name and
reputation might have been blasted by them If
he had not stood high in the opinion of his cot
leagues At this point the court adjourned
A mob surrounded the law courts at the close
of the days proceedings and as the earl left
he was hooted at and attempts made to strike
him The police endeavored to protect him
but the crowd overpowered them and the earl
was obliged to soak refuge in the temple Be
ing still followed however he jumoed Into a
cab and succeeded in getting away amid the
jeers j and hisses of the mob

The Speakenhlp Contest
WASHINGTON Dec 2There seems to ba
practically little change in the speakership
situation this afternoon All five candidates
continue to express cheerful confidence There
are no signs of any withdrawals prior to the
first ballot and there Is nothing as yet to
demonstrate the ability of anyone of the candi
dates to transfer his strength to another in the
event of his withdrawing Crisp and Mills
friends continue very sanguine of winning and
are working for an early termination of the con
test They still say they expect to see a breali
among the supporters of Springer McMillin
and Hatch after the first or second ballot At
Crisps headquarters it Is said two or three
votes have been transferred to him from the
doubtful column Mills is hopeful of a con
siderable accession of strength to come between
now and Saturday
There seemed to be a general disposition this
afternoon to admit Crisp at present Is doing ex
ceedingly well but his opponents insisted ho
had reached his limit of strength and would be
unable to obtain a majority of the total vote
McMillin and Springer say they will keep In
the fight to the end believing the contest be
tween Mills and Crisp will have no result ex
cept to necessitate the chice of another candi
date in which event each of these gentlemen
hopes to be the choice of the caucus Hatch
thounh not vet so active in the canvass ex
presses a similar opinion and hone
During the afternoon estimates were made
of the strength of the several candidates
Crisps friends counted between ninetythreo
and ninetysix names for him on the first bal
lot A conservative supporter of Mills said he
had nearly seventyfive votes This he thought
would be increased by Saturday Tho chief
work today was directed against Springers
forces and reports were current of a break in
favor of Mills Springer however said he was
holding his own The Illinois candidate has
shown more strength than any one was willing
to concede him at first and one of his lieuten
ants said Springer had at least forty votes to
be cast in hid favor on the first ballot
