NEW YORK, Dec. 24.——If the statements
made by a naval officer who should be in a,
position to know what is going on in navel
circles are correct, the United States gov
ernment will take steps in a few days to
bring matters in tne Chilian affair to a
crisis. Secretary Tracy has been in New
York for a. week. It is said that his mis

ments from the ‘militiauofa certs directs of‘
regulars equipped for actual service at arm y
postsnto‘llenc‘alled for. from eachstate.“ In
ease the 10,000 men transported to Chili
should not be enough, it is reported the
president may call for 20,000 vblunteers for
a year. _
WASHINGTON. Dec. 24.——It is stated semi
oflicially that the patience of the adminis
tration is nearly exhausted, as develop
ments in the Chilian situation seem to in
dicate a determination on the part of Chili
to defy the United States To submit to
such a course will inevitably subject the
president and his advisers to a charge at
ome of trifling, and. will encourage more
serious manifestations of disrespect abroad.
The American view of the case, Secretary
Blaine is now at work on. When it is fini
ished the president will make it part of a
special message to congress, wxich, be
sides this, will present such a case against
Chili that congress can take but one View
of it. Letters and telegrams upon
which the United States bases
its claim will be published. The
%resident will hold that the respectdue the
nit-ed States warrants prompt and deci
sive action. There is no doubt among for
eign legatious here, whose opinions are of
any consequence. that the United States
must hold Chili responsible for the vio
lence of its mob, or fail to perform its
duty under international sti ulations.
This is known to be the view of English,
French, German, Spanish and Russian
representatives, and this sentiment has
greatly strengthened the president in the
course he intends taking.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 24.——The flagship
San Francisco will sail at noon on Satur
day next unless contradictory orders are
received. As her order-stare sealed, her
destination isa matter of conjecture, but
there is little doubt she is bound for Chili.
It is expected supplies and mail for the
steamship Charleston will be transferred to
that vessel, firebably at Acapulco. The
naval reserve attalions, under Lieutenant—
Commander Chandler, will visit San Fran
cisco today, and inspection and drill will
take place on the cruiser. No gun- will be
fired, but full explanations of their work
ings will be given by gunners. Fires in
two furnaces are banke , while the steam
auge records seventy pounds of steam.
The cruiser is ready to go to sea at a mo
ment’s notice. All hands are kept closely
on board and a few olficers who come on
shore are limited to an hour or two.

that city and Brownsville; also, that Gar

Tortillas, 70 miles from the border, and de

SEATTLE, Dec. 24.-—ln a talk with a well
known member of the legislature here to
, day he said: “McGraw and his ring have
ibecome so scared at the bad outlook for
the party which their action have brought
about, that a determined eflbrt has been
made to get Allen to accept the U. S. cir
cu'g; judgeship, if it is tendered to him,
an influence has been. brought upon the
president to appoint him. This is done in
order to heal the breach in Pierce county
by having Calkins appointed senator by
the governor.” ‘
“But will the governor appoint him?” 1
“Well, the governor is looked upon as a ‘
pretty smart politician, and if he does not
appoint him he will disappoint those who
believe in his political shrewdness. He
has positively put his foot down on an ex
tra session. If Allen is appointed judge,
and he (ides call an extra session, it will
show that he hasn’t the nerve to face the
music at the critical moment. To tell the
truth, Ido not believe he has. If Allen is
is appointed judge I believe he will call
the legislature together, and m that event
Calkins will doubtless be elects.

England is Visited by the Worst
Fog in Years. ~
flluny Liven Lost In the Dense
Gloom by Person- Losing Their
Way and Falling Into the Inver-
l LONDON, Deo.24.—The fog that settled
idown over the city Tuesday last, still
1 hangs over it, and everywhere it is as black
as night. Business is interrupted, and the
money loss is serious, as people will not
venture out even to make Christmas pur
chases. It is impossible tosee more than a
few inches in any direction. Street and
and river traflic is greatly hindered. The
fog is not only prevalent in London, but it
extends over a wide section of country.
It is, without exception, the worst visita
tion of the kind that has come to England
in many years. Fears are entertained that
if the thick weather prevails it will cause
many disasters to shipping, particularly to
vessels which are bound up and down the
channel. The weather is so bad but few
people ventured into the streets unless
they were absolutely compelled to. The
saddest feature of the situation is the great
loss of life caused by persons losing their
wag and wandering into the rivers, canals
an ponds. Already seven bodies of un
fortunates, who have fallen into the river
and drowned, have been recovered. Four
other men and girls are reported missing,
and there is scarcely any oubt they per
ished‘as the_otners did. _ ‘_ _ _
A dispatch from Leeds this morning
states that three men, while walking beside
a. canal, lost their way in the f? and fell
into the water and were drowne , and sev
eral persons were killed on a. railway.
Routine Work Discussul at the

At the meeting of the city council last
night, but‘little was done, the disposition
being to let matters stand for the consider

discussion ensued with relation to the
street signs, and the fault of the poster in
placing them within the reach of mis
chievous urchins. Mr. Murphy stated
that already they were being defaced so
that Union street read Onion sereet, and
the front and rear letters in Adams street
were missing. It was ordered to have the
