At the time W. U. Uobeits was atipotnted as

there wasacurieul rtrnior that Mayor \V. 11.
Grace ecutcd tire ntipoiiitinuiit , and it was
also charrjed that ItoberU was going to Clilll
to press Iho celebrated Grace claims. The
latlcr rumor was denied at the time , ns if by
milhoiity. The U orld this morning prints a
long document stannl by Lntran , which It
tajsls noworr tile in the slate department ,
nnd which places flr.iei ? hi an unplcasrut
light. It Sftjs the report will likely form Iho
basis of nn investigation by the senate as
soon ns Uoberts > * appointment comes up. Tire
irpnrt ghes tlie history of the allowed claims ,
rind suoiiks ot the feelhu of the Clillian oflie-
lals when they hecul tlic lumnr that I'ol ert3
win to bo the cuts-pAW of llrace. The \Vorld
sajs editorially : "An cUlcla ! communication
ndilressed by a foruu r minister of tlio United
States to Chill to Secretary of Slate U.ijard ,
and now on lilo Irr the .state department at
Washington , throws some light err thu eMi-a-
oidlnmy sclicme.s of "KoformcrCJrace ami
his South American tlun to obtairr i-eveial
million dollars from the treasury of the ic-
publle of Chili. It ollicially confirms the sus
picion that Oraco has \ery curious
mid enormous "claims'1 tigaln.st the Chilian
government. It shows the.sc "claims" have
heietofoiobccn invesli , iled by Iho stale de
partment nnd its representative InCldtinnd
Wire eomidered too flimsy niid unv.oillu of
serious ) iicscntatioii. Tire Grace lit in , at
whose head is our dlsUugulshod forty per
cent mayor , as it plainly appeals , endeavored
to use thc. = e patched claims niralnst the
rhillan govern men I In tire hope of securing
certain fat contracts. Such oitorts falling
the claims aio now supposed to beprov-cd
for settlement. Of course this is impossible
without the aid of the Amciii'tui miu.ster.
So Mr. Grace .shrewdly managed to have Mr.
Wm. H. Itohcrts , a SV 00 eleik In the ta\ de
partment , r.polined ] ) United atatcs minister
to Chili at -.alary ot 810,000 a .vear. He Is
trying to use tlic loicign minister of the
United States as hN cats paw. The adminis
tration at Washington has without doubt
been Imposed upon by ( iraco irr this mailer.
He was tlie last man in tlie world to whom
the selection ot an American minister to
Clilll should have been allow ud , as there was
no man in this eouutii who had more diiect
arid pecuniary interest iutluitappornlaieiil.1

of the business tumbles ate from the fact
that ( lie laws ol the United States weie not
can icd out by oiirex'ecutive ollicers. Combi
nations ol b.mker.s and bondholders and
their well paid piess were oppo Hil to silver ,
and their present ciiibiulo against
that metal w..a another evidence
of Ihc audacity of the oigani/ations
of wealth , orcam/atloim which had
always seemed wliatevertliey hnd demaiided.
Jlr. lieckoxpicssed the opinion that there was
rrnt an obligation existing irr this country ,
national or municipal , Hint could not legally
ha paid in gold or silver ot the United t ite- , .
Tlio bondholders of the United bates , ho
said , contiollcd enormous amounts of money
ami the be-t talent ot the picss , and h iving
iu vr aplutcd the executive hianclus of the
government , they weie. chiiiioriug lor gold

get out of the treasury if the &ee-
lelary of the tieasury would not call

.Mr. Mori III remarked that Mr. Heck's
spe.ch seemed to boa very elaborate assault
on the secretary of the trcasiny and the presi
dent , and 11 Iho resolution iu
support of which it was delivered
should pass Ihu senate it would bo equivalent
to a vote ol a want ot coniitlonce in the
piesldent and his administration. He ie-
gretted that the senator from Kentucky
should Im.-u represented the secretary of the
