He will say noth ing concerning the conference at the exec utive mansion yesterday; nor will he give a hint as to the probable policy of this government in the matter. Secretary Tracy, who also attended the White House- conference, is equally reticent. There is not any great expression of opin ion here as to the probable outcome of the affair, and there ia almost an entire ab sence of expression concerning the an swer this couotry will make. . The Italian Case Referred To. The letter of Secretary Blaine, in an swer t3 the demands of the Italian gov ernment in the New Orleans affair, has been referred to frequently as similar in tone a id expression to the answer of the Chiliaa premier: but Blaine's letter to Rudini, while firm was not threatening, hornet! iing the reply of the Chilian govern ment is construed to be by many persons, the lat Benteuce only being de.-med of a ;oncil)4tory -nature. Xo news could be ob tained last night at the Chilian headquar ters in this city in regard to the present sitnati of affairs between that country and th 3 United States. II any.hing from Valparaiso or Santiago had been received there it; was not made public- 50ME ALLEGED CHILIAN GRIEVANCES Asxert ons of Cnfriendlinest Shown by the I'nited States to Chili. The t pirit which has marked the course of the Chilians toward this government might be easily accounted for if all the ;harge which are brought by them igatnst this country were true. These indictments run as far back as the war bet wee a Chili and Peru. It will be re membered that when that war ended with victory for Chili the latter nation de manded, first a war indemnity in money, tod wten this was not forthcoming pro--eeded to take a large slice of Peruvian territoty. At this point, the Chilians complain, the United States government Interfeied and sent Messrs. W. H. Tres cot and Walker Blaine to South America in Peru's behalf. These gentlemen re turned without accomplishing any defi nite results, but their visit is again em phasize 1 by the Chilians as an unfriend ly act o a the part of the United States. Tlie Baltimore's Search Light. Comi ig down to more recent times the Chillians have a number of charges to make against the officers and men of the Baltimore, which, although denied, have do doul t been maliciously circulated in Chili for the purpose of fanning the hos tility to the United States. The first of these is the statement that when the Con gressiot alist navy was searching for tor pedoes in the harbor of Valparaiso at night the electric search-light of the Baltimore was tuned upon their work, and thus they we-e frustrated in their plans. This is posit velydenied by this government. Coutplaint Against Admiral Brown. Anotler charge is that when the insur gent an jy was landing on thecoast just previous to the battle which resulted m the ovtrthrow of Balmaceda, Admiral Brown t teamed the San Francisco down to The r lace of landing and made a count ot the nsurgent forces, both as U the number of men and guns. It is alleged HOOK ISLAM., H!IDAY,iOCTOBElt 30,-1891. IMP THE (nat ne returned to Valparaiso and tele graphed this information to Balmaceda, enabling the latter to hurry his army to the point wbeee the iusnrgents had secretly landed, and temporarily, al though not finally, embarrassed the enemy. The ground for this charge ii said to be the publication of this informa tion in the papers in Santiago on th mor ning after the landing, and quoting Admiral Brown as the authority. Can Prove the Charge False. It is said by this government in reply to this charge that it can be proven that Admiral Brown never communicated with Balmaceda. It is acknowledged that the admiral did sail down the coast and watch the landing of the insurgent army but at the same time it is known from private letters written to his family in Indiana that Admiral Brown's personal sympathies were with the insurgents, and he predicted in his correspondence theif final success. Other Grounds of Complaint. Another ground of complaint, in the eyes of the Chilians, - amounts, in their estimation, to a virtual blockade of ail the insurgent ports along the Chilian coast. It is alleged that a bulletin was displayed in the chamber of commerce in Philadelphia warning all merchant vessels that it was dangerous to enter the port of Iquique, the insurgent capital, and that by reason of this bulletin American ships laden with the provisions so much needed by the insurgents remained away. As the document has never been laid before this government its existence is suspected to be a myth. The Trouble with the Itata. There is only one more allegation which the Chilians put forth which is deserving of attention, although it does not exhaust their list. This relates to the Itata. The Itata is a private vessel and the law dis tinctly states that all ships held for viola tion of the neutrality laws shall be held under a bond double their value.' The Itata is confessedly worth 300,000, but the United States accepted an appraise ment of only 60.000, in order that the bond might be secured without difficulty. All arrangements made with the owners of the vessel by the United States have been acceded to by the former with pleas ure, but the Chilians on the other hand have shown no disposition to accept any friendly overtures. ' VIEWS OF EX-MINISTER OSBORNE. The Chilians, Cultivate the Virtue of uememberlng X-nemies. Topee. A, Kan., Oct. 80. Ex-Governor Thomas A. Osborne, minister to Chili un der President Hayes, is very guarded in his - remarks concerning the present strained diplomatic relations between this government and the Chilians. Governor Oi borne has received requests from numer ous sources fcr an expression of his views, but has declined because an expression from him might embarrass the adminis tration at this time. He has probably re-' ceived as much reliable information con-' earning the difficulties which now beset Minister Egan and the president as any man in the country, and entertains very positive views. They Treasure Malice. "Von may say," said he to a reporter, "that I regard the strained relations as very nnfortnnate at this time. ' The Chil ians are a very sensitive people and treas- LONDON! ETi rLiar.cs. u it snouta oecome necessary for the United States government to humiliate them it would require a century to restore the amicable relations which existed prior to the Balmaceda revolution. About the close of the civil war Chili and Peru were in a difficulty and Spain sent a fleet which bombarded Valparaiso. The cannon balls are yet imbedded in the cus tom house and the Chilian government will not allow them to be removed. The youth of the country all know the story, and the cannon halls serve as a constant reminder that their hatred towards the Spanish government must not be suf fered to decrease." ENGLISHMEN IN A FERMENT. The Traders Believe a Fight Inevitable and Bewail the Fact. Losnox, Oct. 3a The greatest ferment exists iu the South American trade over the news from South America. The gen eral impression is that Chili will fight, and that the United States is now in a position where it must fight or retreat with dishonor. Xo person of responsibil ity hns yet been found who doubts that America will come out foremost in the end. but the general expression is that Chili will have for the present a decided advantage. The sentiment of the mer cantile houses trading with Chili is strongly against war. Good Beason for Apprehension. The nitrate interests are also opposed to it on the ground that war might result, the United States, through nn arrange ment with Peru, getting control of the nitrate deposits: also that a successful war would have the effect of raising American prestige in South America to the detri ment of England. The change of feeling since Wednesday is tnost significant. Then the idea of war was pooh-poohed. Xow the South American opinion in London is exactly the reverse, and war is regarded as almost inevitable. Repudiated by the Senator. Oshkosh, Wis., Oct. 30. Senator Saw yer absolutely denies that he made any attempt to employ ex-Congressman La Follette to use his influence with Judge Sieliecker in the hope that the latter might be induced to decide favorably for the defendants in the state treasury case. Seuator Sawyer made this denial yester day morning in the office of Attorney C. W. Felker, but beyond the bare statement that Mr. LaFollette's allegations were un true, he refused to say a word. Paid Dearly tor-Beating His Ron. TEXARKASA, Ark., Oct 30.
