A Valparaiso ca blegram to tin' Herald loads thus: I leant on reliable authority tho fol lowing important facts legariling the an swer Njnt by Senor Matta, at tho t.i ii lie was mini ter of foreign affairs, to Presi dent Harrison's message and which wan cabled to Chile's ministers in Europe and America us the provisional government's reply to tho United Stales. It appears that at a meeting of President Monti's old cabinet, called to discuss President HatiiFon'p message, Minister Malta was authorized to reply to it. He wrote out a dociunont and cabled it to the Chilean minister tit Washington, Senor Moult, without ever having shown it to Presi dent Montt.. In spite of this omission, Minister Matta, in sending u message to Minister Egan on the same subject. states that the document was the official utteratue of the Chilean government. He made a siniiUt statement before the senate. When the truth was known it was then too late for President Montt or the other membets of tho cabinet to dis avow tho responsibility for the curt tone of the reply and at the same time avoid giving offence just then to tho radical party, of which Senor Malta was leader. Now, however, tho radical party as well as tho leading members of congress, are fully inclined to disavow and disown the retired ministers words. The pres ont ministry is preparing another docu ment as a substitute for Senor Malta's undiplomatic letter. It is stated tho German empeior will bo sought as an arbitrator in tho Baltimore care, but that before this is acceded to by tho United States an apology will be asked from tho German minister, Ilerr Gutschmidt, for certain alleged undiplo matic ptoceedings on his part toward the American government's representatives. Tho new Chilean craKer President Errazuriz went on a trial trip to-day with a muub'or of government officials aboard. Mail Orderly Bradley of tho York town, who disappeated mysteriously after hav ing been sent ashore on Dec. 29 to bend a cable dispatch, and who it was thought might have been killed by persons inim ical to tho Americans, has been hciud from, and it turns out that there is a woman in tho case. It is said that Brad loy and tho woman have left Valparaiso for some unknown place. Tall; il War iHltusli. CuiCAao, Jan. 5. Colonel J. Par Parker Read, at present in this city, litis been living from time to time sinco 1870 in Chile. In an interview ho said there was no fear of war with Chile. "My wifo and four children," said ho, "tiro in tho city of Valparaiso and 1 feel just as safe about them as though they were hero in Chicago. My wifo and son keep mo posted upon tho feeling entertained by tho Chileans toward this country and I feol euro it has not changed of lato. Chilo is a young, bright, proud and energetic nation. Naturally enough her eoplo love tho United States aa nearly akin to themselves in progress and enterprise." "But it was a mistake to bend Egan to Chile," continues Mr. Head. "There tho leading men are of English birth and patentageand naturally look with dis favor on Egan. Aa the representative of tho United States ho is treated with duo res'tcet, hut wo cannot expect more. All talk of war, however, is bosh, and wo should bo ashamed to whip Chile. Hu miliating it would bo for us lo attack Chile, and what would we gainV Chilt) is a proud, beautiful little country, and tho United States is too big to engage in such iietty business, and thoro is too much manliness in Americans to pitch into a little country that is standing up for what it considers to bo its rights. As to tho Baltimore incident, tho Chilean courts tiro investigating tho affair, and wo may bo euro that if an apology is duo us wo will got it without Hiking. Nat urally tho peoplo tiro our friends and look to tho United States with pride as tho highest exponent of civilization." Will Awult lli'HiiltH. Washington, .Inn. 5.

Tho unofficial announcement of tho prac tical completion of tho judicial proceed ings in Valparaiso and tho intention of Chilean legal authorities to punish tho three Chileans convicted of participation in tho assault has given sati.sfatiou here and is generally legarded as 11 distinct concession by tho Chileans' to tho United States, showing thero will not in all probability bo further undue delay in tho disposition of tho case. These tidings have not, as far as can bo learned, been officially made known to Blaine by Montt, and it may bo that Montt will await tho sentence of the con victed Chileans before he piesents to the secretary the conclusions reached by tli6 judicial authorities of his country. 'With mutters in this promising condition it is, therefote, unlikely that 11 distuibmg ele ment will bo introduced in tho negotia tions by the publication of official cor lenpoudence. Koi;t y.
