PARIS, Nov. G.——A dispatch from Rio
J aneiro states that elections for members
of the new chamber of representatives is
expected to take place in January. Con
gress will revise the constitution and will
retain its republican and federalized char
acter. The’dispatch further states that a
commission has been appornted for the ‘
summary treatment of persons charged
with being enemies of the republic.’ Upon
conviction of that charge they will be bail—
ishcd from the country.
Rio JANEIRO, Nov. 6.—-The situation’ of
affairs here today is reassuring. The troops
which have been guarding the telegraph
offices since the disturbance commenced
have been withdrawn. Complete order
prevails and the usuai amount of business
is being transacted. The government has
ceased to interfere with any telegrams and
the impression is a revolution is not likely
to occur. The prosperity of the country is
unimpaired by recent occurrences.

The Tomato.
N 0 vegetable has undergone a greater
development in the last generation than
the tomato. Persons who still esteem
themselves young will remember the time
when the only tomatoes to be seen were
the small round or oval ones called love
apples and deemed inedible. They
seem to have been appropriated for table
use first in this country, for an old Euro
pean traveler tells how he astonished the
fellow diners at a Continental table d’hote
by eating the tomatoes placed on the table
purely as garniture. »
City Engineering.
There was no intention to reflect on City

What. is Said of the Situation! oi
Affairs in Chlle and the “Bal

New ORLEANS, Nov. 6.—Senor Pedro
Montt, Chilean minister to the “United
States, met his wife on board the steamer
Andean yesterday afternoon. The lady,
accompanied by four of the Chilean lega
tion, left in the evening for Washington.

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 6.—Ricardo Trum
bull, who came to San Francisco some
months ago as a repreSentative of the in
surgent party in Chile, who was arrested
while here for his connection with the Itata
ali‘air, returned from the east last night.
He expresses himself as entirely satisfied
with the outcome of the Itata case. “I
learn,” said he, “that Admiral Montt has
been chosen president and while _I have no
official knowledge, I am confident of its
accuracy and wired him my congratula
tions. have known Jorge Montt person
ally for a long time and have the greatest
regard for his ability and integrity. He is
recognized by all classes as a conservative
man who never allied himself with the
radicals or extremists, and is in my opinion
just the man to heal the breaches and har
monize various factions.
“What,” was asked, “do you think of
the prospects of war between Chile and
this country ?7’
“There is. I think, no fear of such a con
tingency. The authorities at Washington
will probably realize that patience must be
exercised in dealing with a country that
has just emerged from a bloody revolution
and whose affairs in consequence are in a
badly unsettled condition. There is no
doubt that ample reparation will be made
for the killing 01' the men from the Balti
more. Dispatches sent here accusing the
police of Valparaiso of participation in the
killingl denounce as false. It is awell
known fact that the police of Chile are
armed only with wooden clubs and carry
no pistols or knives at any time. The fact
is the attack was the work of a mob com
posed probably of the lower classes, who ‘
are bitter in their feeling toward this ,
country.” , 1
”What has led it to this feeling ‘2” 1
“Well. mainly, I should say, the action
of Admiral Brown in spying upon the
movements ofthe insurgents and furnish
ing Balmaceda with information. That ,
this is true I will not assert positively. and l
I know that the admiral informed Balma- l
ceda of the strength of the in
surgent forces which landed at Quin
tera bay. I anticipate that affairs
in Chile from this on will move smoothly. 1
Congress will meet on the 18th of the pres- l

The Questions to Come Before the

Contest In 1892.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Nov.6.~—~Acorrespond
ent of the Leader at Mansfield sends an in
terview with Senator Sherman on the re
cent election. In answer to the question
as to what effect the result in Ohio would
have upon the election next year, the
senator said: "In the first place, so far as
the republican_party is concerned, the re
sult In Ohio fixes the silver question as one
ofthe issues of the next presidential con
test, and decidee it so far as this state is
concerned. I am convinced that free
coinage will be passed by the congress
which assembles in December. I also be
lieve such will be vetoed by President
Harrison. That will naturally make free
silver a feature of the next presidential
fight; in fact it will be a leading issue upon
which there is a vast diil’erence of opinion
in both parries. It is exactly like the
tariil‘. Local conditions and interests govern
the sentiment and action. I doubt veiy
much whether the Democracy in the nat
ional convention will proclaim for free
coinage. If they should, there will be no
other issue of significance in the next caln~
paign. The financial battle that we fought
in hio, will then be transferred to the na~
tion, and contests such as we have
never seen, will be the result. The tariff
will be a prominent, but not a vital point

The tariif question is practically settled,

That is What the Court Martial is
Engaged in.
Secret Sessions of the Epnulettcd
Soldiers—What is to Be llne
Outcome of It '5
“This court martial has been fixed to let
off Haines on the plea of no jurisdiction."
said one of the military officers this morn
ing. “The precedent was fixed at Seattle a
few weeks ago in the trial of Captain Jones,
of the Port Townsend company. That
court martial said it had no jurisdiction in
the Jones case in ordexf that the same thing
could be worked in the Haines matter. The
Haines men are laughing up thein sleeves
at the idea of conviction."
The doors of the military court were
closed to the public during the morning,
and the visiting militia olh’cers were any—
thing but pleased. The first question
raised by the counsel for the accused was
as to the organization of the court. it was
charged that it had not occurred in due
form, that the orders convening the court
were not fully read, that the accused was
not asked if he had any objection to any
members of the court prior to swearingr
them. and that there was an entire absence
of a record of any proceedings. On these
grounds the court was reorganized. It
was stipulated between the judge advocate
and the counsel for the accused that the
record of yessterday’s proceedings should
be submitted at an adjourned session this
afternoon, and that any objections to the
record could then be taken, the same as it'
the record had been presented and read.
The counsel fOr the accused is determined
to have everything minute and the record
complete before the case is proceeded with.
Colonel Pike, one of the members of the
court! was challenged on the ground that
he is inferior in rank to the accused, and
in a direct line of promotion, that is, were
anything to haplpen to General Curry, as
the head of t\e brigade, and (lo onel
Haiues were to be removed, Colonel Pike
would be the next in rank, and would as
sume the command of the brigade. This was
argued as'a strong Point. The articles of
war provide that w ien it can be avoided no
inferior should sit on the court if it can be
avoided. It was was argued that in this
case it can be avoided by removing Colonel
Pike, as an inferior officer to the accused.
and still leave six members on the court.
live being the minimum limit in the com
position of the court, thus leaving a suf
ficient number to proceed with the trial.
That the penalty for a violation of the
sixty-first article of war is dismissal from
the service. No lighter sentence can be im
posed, and Winthrop, the highest military
authority in the country. states that when
the penalty is dismissal from service, it is
safer. and in the interests ofjustice, thatau
inferior oliicer shouldbe excused. _
Colonel Pike was also challenged on the
charge that he had expressed an opinion
in Lhenmltersiuce being detailed on the
court. The accused and the challenged
party then left the court while the matter
was being discussed, and the result was
that Colonel Pike was released from the
lcogrt. ,
There is now no question that the court
will continue in session until Monday at
the earliest. Huines' friends are confident
that the case will not come to trial, and
even though it should, his one strong point
of defense will be the lack of jurisdiction,
and on this point it will be carried to the
ciyil _courjts.
This afternoon Colonel Haines was ar~
raigned and the charges against him were
read, but counsel for the accused claimed
that the charges served upon ()oloncl
Haines were not the same as those read by
the court, the dili‘ercnce being that the
name of Arthur Empy, clerk at the hotel,
was not contained in the original copy.
Counsel for-the defense was Willing to pro
ceed with the trial upon the charges served
providing the name of Arthur Ennpy was
withdrawn and that such facts be inc uded
in the records of the proceedings.
The judge advocate reserves the
right to introduce the last named person
