THE CHILEAN WAR. An Insurgent's Statement of the Misrule of Bilmaceda. - Washington, July ; 14.— Antonio Varas, one of the Chilean Insurgent representatives Dow here, has a very rabid communication in to-day's ■ Post in answer to - ; the Evening Star's Santiago correspondent ;i lie says in part: "The article in the Star,in:def jnse of lialmaceda, so skillfully conceals the real facts and so • adroitly emphasizes : every possible point in Balmaceda's : behalf that the evident intention of misleading the pub lic mind is apparent. 7 There are Indications that tbe letter has been 'doctored' in this country." When trie correspondent \ discul pates the crime of lialmaceda for the shoot ing in the public square of a group of soldiers as deserters, site is careful uot to mention, what was so notoriously true, that these un fortunate men had been dragged from their homes and firesides by force ' and against ' their, will and their duty to their country and ordered to bear arms in aid of a tyrant. Carried by brute force to ships, they were there penned up like cattle, in the belief that they would at last become tractable enough to serve tiiß Dictator's ambitious ends.. , ' .•-■■■. • CAPTURED AND CONDEMNED. "Inspired by the loftiest sentiments of patriotism, they naturally embraced the first opportunity " to escape. - They , were captured, and • appealed to the courts.: A decision was rendered, and by the decree of thu highest tribunal iv Chile it was declared th.it these men were under no obligation to serve in the army. Disregarding t!ie decree of ■ the • court, I>aliuaceda . interposed his bloody hand, and the men, who represented the foremost families of the republic in wealth, station . aud intelligence were bru tally shot down, absolutely murdered :u the public square. This is the deed which the writer of tlie letter endeavors to justify and' excuse. In willful mendacity she avoids the truth and seeks to palliate a crime which will forever be a stain upon the clos ing years of the nineteenth century. These martyrs to freedom and their country, on whom lialmaceda glutted his , revenge, will live in the hearts of all true men, while the tyrant and his supporters will hide their heads in shame and their nam be handed down to posterity as curses to humanity.' | "Tlie Post lias been solicited to publish various letters from a Chilean daughter to her father, giving what is claimed to be a truthful and confidential statement of what she has witnessed. It would be very unsafe for tbe young lady if anyone friendly to the Dictator came iv possession of the name, which would be wired through . to Baliiia ceda, and the poor girl and her family would suff.-r the consequences. Tlie vengeance, of the tyrant would be fearful.'.'

A Sl.Vi;i:i; TEST. The Harvey - Treated Armor - Plates Resist Heavy Cannonading. Washington, July 14.— Further tests of American armor-Dlate were made at Anna polis proving ground last Siturday with gratifying results. Two three-inch all-steel plate* were prepared by Carnegie, with sur faces treated by the now Harvey process. Togira the process a complete test, under better conditions than heretofore realized, the ulates were made with less carbon in their composition than the throe plated tested some months ago. The official report has not yet been received, but the officers »aj the plates satisfactorily resisted tho shuts fired from a six-pound Hotchkiss rifle, which is considered a severe test. The projectile* were of superior quality, capable of penetrating under ordinary cir cumstances four inches of ordinary steeL Only eurfae.e scars were mado by the pro jectiles, which were all broken to fragments and no cracks were made in the plates. The Ordnance Department will now turn their attention to securing projectiles that can do something besides scratch armor. They hay« given orders for a trial of pro jectiles with blunt head*.

Washington, July 14.— The army au thorities have been attempting for the past year to Improve the quality of tbe recruits i n the regular army so as to lessen the per centage of desertions, which was rapidly in creasing. Extra endeavors have been made to secure young men who sought the army as a profession ruther than as a haven of refuge. To this end the efforts of the re cruitina officers have been systematically turned from thn cities to the country. The effect of their efforts now begins to show results, and they are more gratifying than it was expected they would be, and army of ficers are generally satisfied that this hue of policy is a good one.

Pistols Drawn, Four or Fin Shots Fired and tie Weapons Used as Clubs. The Renomlnation or Governor Campbell by the State Convention to Be Vigorously Opposed to the. End.' '.^ Special to The Moßsisa Oal&, • Cleveland, July 14.— Governor Camp bell will be the nominee of tbe Democratic Convention to-morrow for Governor of Ohio. The contest will be .short am', de cisive, and be concluded with the first bal lot. ; Governor Campbell \ will receive far more than enough votes to nominate him, but the anti-Campbell delegates insist that they will go on record in opposition, in or der to prevent his unanimous nomination. Thus, so far as the convention is concerned harmony is deliberately rejected as an un necessary political commodity, and the only question now is, will the anti-Campbell fac tions carry their grievances ; to the : polls? There have been many wordy warfares in the hotel lobbies to-day between Campbell delegates and .their demonstrative , oppo nent.", and in several case.* * the ' disputes went to such an extent that the admirers of the Governor answered the threats -of the Hamilton County delegates by declaring that Campbell could i>n both nominated and elected without the help of Cincinnati. All these disputes ' are deprecated by } both Campbell and Neal, but . their ill-effect *is none the less felt in the party ranks. While an angry wrangle was in progress this evening In front of : the Plaindealer office, between Peter j Nolan, a Campbell man and an amateur prize-fighter/and William and James Patterson, Neal dele gates, all understood to be from Cincinnati, the lie was passed and in an | Instant | re volvers were drawn and a lively fusillade followed, in which four or five shots were fired with mild results. An . innocent by stander received one of the bullet?, after which the weapons were used as cludh with more appreciable effect on the contestants. They all received numerous gashes over the head and : were » bleeding profusely when arrested. This unfortunate Incident tended at once to restore a more philosophical feel ing around. . Party leaders of all factions immediately united In a vigorous- protest against wrangles, and to-night petty .dis putes were discountenanced by. all and a strong attempt was made to restore partial harmony. . The full strength , of the : Campbell fol lowing was not appreciated until the Gov ernor reached - the city this afternoon.' " There is no doubt of my ' nomination on the first ballot," ho said this evening to an Associated Press representative. '" It is simply a question of addition, as I already have the assurance of far more than enough delegates to insure my nomination. : ; I think' th« result, whatever It may be, will be ac cepted Dhilosophically by all :my worthy competitors, and tlio Democracy ■of the State will present an unbroken front to the enemy this fall." - A mass-meeting: of the anti-Campbell delegates Was held this afternoon, at which . was discussed the question whether, in the event of Campbell's: nomination, the oppo sition would permit him to be declared the unanimous nominee or insist on a complete roll-call and make the record ■ show the op posing votes. The committee reported this evening In favor of opposing Campbell to the bitter end. This persistent opposition is the sensation of the town to-night and has destroyed the last hope of a harmonious convention.! ■ ,■• ■■-.-: -. acra The discussion over the platform still con tinues. Ex-Congressman Warner and other prominent free-coinage men are on : the ground insisting that party success can only be insured by the convention declaring for free and uulimited coinage of silver, but they are being vigorously opposed by Con gressman flatter and other equally prom inent Democrats. ; "We certainly i want to keep clear of a free-coinage, plank," said llarter. today. "In two months we now coin £9,000,000 in silver, and that 1 3 more than - the - entire amount coined •■ ', be tween 1862 and 1879. Why, free coinage would be the ruin of • the industries of the country. The .Republicans have not made a silver issue, and why should we do so? Would it not be better to devote our atten tion to the tariff exclusively? We can fight successfully on that issue, but it means na tional defeat for the party to advocate the free coinage of silver." j As a result of the division of sentiment several informal conferences of Democratic Congressmen and other party leaders . have been held, and the money question was dis cussed with the vijw of reacning an under standing on ttie silvef issue. A strenuous attempt will be made to settle all differences on the financial question in the Committee on Resolutions, and prevent the : subject from being debated in convention. ■ The committee have oeeu in session all the evening, and the platform is practically completed -on the silver question. ■ The tariff : plank 'is founded on that of ' last year, and demand* a reduction of tariff taxes, and \ denounces : the so-called piotec tive tariff, etc. The platform pledges : the Ohio ; Democrats .to aid in every - way to m.ike au exhibit; at the World's Fair. It is possible that the ' plank favoring free silver will be adopted, but, if , 10, a minority re port will be presented opposing it. EDITORIAL CONVENTION.
