Paris, Sept. 20. The whole press of

recent speech at Erturt in which it is
reported he alluded to Napoleon as a
Viknna, Sept. 20. A painful impres
sion has been produced in the highest
Austrian circles by the report of the
kaiser's remark about Napoleon I., and
anxiety is expressed that he will be un
able to deny it. The house of Hapsburg,
strange as it may seem, has Napoleon
enrolled as one uf its connections by
marriage with Archduchess Maria
Louise. The Austrian Imperial family
is tho proudest in Europe and it accepted
tho first Napoloon intp its house. The
King of Sweden is descended from ono
of Napoleon's generals. So to rovile
the little Corsican is to offend a large
portion of European royalty.
Valparaiso, Kept. 21. Ex-president
Baltnaceda committed suicide Satur
day morning at the Argentine leg- ;
ation in Santiago, and the event is the
one absorbing topic of conversation ia
every part of the city. There la a min
gled feeling of savage rejoicing at hi
death, and bitter regret that he should
have killed himself, instead of falling in
to the club.hes ol tniunaiea wizens,
who would have delighted to rend him
inib from limb for the long list of cruel-
ties for which they hold him responsible. ,
It is impossible for anyone not in this
country, or not a native, to realize the
intensity of the hatred entertained
toward the ex-preBident. The national
holidays, which were to have ended
Saturday night, have been prolongea or
the suicide. The feasts, illuminations,
and other celebrations in honor of the
success of the congressional party re
kept up, followed by the marching of
fremied crowds through all tlie street,
shouting songs of triumph over tl9
death of their lormer ruler.
It isthe general belief that Balmaceda s
death will hasten, in a great deerw!, lii
restoration of peace throughout Chill.
Now that the chief enemy of the victori
ous junta is no more, it is likely bis
followers will be shown mercy, since
without Balmaceda to direct them there
is very little to be feared. Italy, France,
! Sweden and Norway have followed the
lead of the United States in the official
recognition cf the junta. Germany,
it willM remembered, was the second
natioaf ttulo so. No official recognition
has ytt come from England, This
creates considerable comment.
