One week ago, be ii alleged to have
said, these preparations seemed to be
absolutely necessary, but be now be
lieva there would be no war. Thia
expression on the part of the secretary
of his belief that the crisis has passed is
taken as an indication of conciliatory
dispatches from the Chilean government
and regarded as paving the way for an
ultimate act of reparation by the Chile.
A very aorurrate index of popular senti
ment is obtained through letters that
pour in upon the secretary of the
ury from all parts of the country.
Whereas ten days ago "these indications
developed a decided war spirit, today
there seems to be a change in tone, and
there is grow inn disposition to urge
the secretary to a conciliatory course.
It is quite apparent that congress is not
to be enlightened on the Chilean con
troversy for at least two or three days,
for the announcement is fnade at the
at the state department that the cor-j
respondence will not be sent in tomor
row. No date is fixed for submission of
the message and documents.

who since December 29, last, bas amused
himself, by cutting tbe throats of drunk

terror of night travelers in the Fourth
ward, was captured at an early honr
this morning red-handod. He inveigled
his victim, a drunken man, to an un
frequented street and then catching the
man around the neck with one hand,
with the other he drew a keen razor
across his throat. He then slunk away,
but an officer, who had been watching
him for some time and who had been
unable to come up in time to save the
drunken man from injury, gave pursuit
and with the aid of other officers soon
captured " the slasMer." He turns out

Trouble ia Argentine BepuMic. ..
Mendoza, Argentine Republic, Jan.
17. The president of the legislature of
the state of Mendoza has instructed the
chief of police to arm sufficient men to
prevent the members of the legislature
from being assaulted by the revolution
ists. The governor has also called upon
the federal government of Argentine to
guard the polls during the approaching
election for governor of the state. All
Argentine, in fact, seems to be in a fer
ment over the elections and a revolution
appears to be almost inevitable.
The annual din-
club took place tonitrht
at Sherry's. F. Ellery Anderson, pre
siding officer, in a brief address extended
grseting to the banner bearers of tariff
reform, and introduced as the first
speaker Senator Vilas, ot Wisconsin,
who responded to the toast "The Presi
dency in '02." He recommended organ
ization and the enlistment of all justi
fiable influences. Tariff reform and free
silver coinage, he said, are twin broth
ers. During Vilas' speech, when he re
ferred to ' a leader loved and trusted
by the people," loud cries of Cleveland's
name were heard. Congressman Breck
inridge declared the onlv issue, the viul
and pressing matter that demands im
mediate attent:on and reform, is the
taiiff. M. D. Carter, of Ohio, said the
unlimited coinage of silver would con
tract and debase the currency. Free
coinage was simply a trick of the silver
producer by which he seeks to cover
into his own pocket the twelve or fifteen
millions now gained by tbe public treas
ury. Congressman Springer spoke on
the tariff question admitting the imprac
ticability of a genera revision of the
matter by thia congress but ntging that
tariff refoim be kept before the country
as the issue tipoi. which the next pres
idential and congressional election will

Santa Barbara, Cal. Jan. 17 Lack
of rain in this section is causing much
aimering to cattle on the ranges, it ts
reported that several hundred head have
recently died from starvation in tbe
upper end of this county, and it is
feared that the loss of stock will be
serious unless rain soon comes. The
reports received here from cattlemen in
portions of Aiizona show a similar short
age of pasturage and loss among cattle.

erable unfavorable weather, more work

Washisotos, Jan 16. The movement
for the election of the United States sen
ator by vote of the people is likely to be
one of the most important subject dis
cussed by the present congress. It
seems likely to be one of the quiet sub
jects of national interest, mon wbicl
party lines will not be drawrf, and from
this fact advocates of the proposed re
form deriye encourage-sent of ultimnle
success. While it is probably true that
of a dozen joint resolutions on the sub- -
ject introduced in the two houses or in
the course of preparation, most of the-
authors are democrats, yot several of
the most emphatic advocates of the
amendment are prominent republicans.
Senator Palmer, of Illinois, who long .
stood as tbe exponent of this popular
principle in the West, and who ascribes
his election solely to the favor with
which the people of Illinois received
the new theory, will take charge of the
reform movement, while Representative
Johnson, republican representative from
North Dakota, will be the mest aggres
sive advocate of the constitutional
amendment in the house. In Repre
sentatives Bryan, Nebraska; Enloe,
Tennesee ; Springer, Illinois ; and Miller,
Wisconsin, he will have warm co-oper
ation. One of the modiScations of the
proposition is that each state primarily
have one senator and one additional for
each million inhabitants.
The Wisconsin Gerrymander.
Madison, Wis., Jan 18 A petition
was filed in the supreme Court today by
ex-Attorney-General Estabrook to test
the constitutionality of the gerrymander
of congressional and assembly districts
of the last legislature. The petitioner
alleges that a large number of republi
can voters were disfranchised thereby.
