An Answer to .His Last Note Sent to Sudini, It Is Not Made Public Yet, But Contains a Clear Statement of the Government's Position. HUD3NI HEAKS FROM ELAINE. WASHINGTON, April 15.—Secretary Elaine completed his reply to the last letter from the Italian government Tuesday, and sent a copy of it to Marquis Imperial! for transmission to Marquis di Rudini. It is understood to be a long and complete answer to all of the questions raised in the last cote from Italy, being 1 much more voluminous than any of the preceding- letters. The belief is that Marquis Imperiali, who is merely a medium of communication, has already cabled the letter to his government. As soon as the secretary is in receipt of an iiiiiina- tion that the note has reached Koine, he will probably make public both his own remarks and the last letter from Rudini, which has not yet appeared in print. Tt is intimated from semi-official quarters that the analysis and synopsis of contents of the last note from Rome that have been published thus far are not correct, and that the letter itself will show a less temperate tone on the part of Italy than has hitherto been supposed. This, if true, may explain the flurry of popular excitement in Rome during the past week. Secretary Blaine in his note has not withdrawn in the least from his original attitude in declaring that the law will take its ourse, and cannot be hurried; that indemnity will probably be granted the families of the men killed at New Orleans in cases where it proven that they were Italian subjects and entitled thereto, but that ihis proof must be undoubted and that the federal government cannot trespass upon the prerogatives of the state, which now controls action in the case. LONDON, April 15.—The Standard's Rome correspondent said th at he had an interview Monday with Mr. Porter, the United States minister to Italy. "Mr. Porter," says the correspondent, "was silent within the limits' of official etiquette, but was exlremely courteous. He said that he had not received any orders of recall and that there was no reason to believe that he would receive any. Both governments look forward to a peaceful settlement of the New Orleans difficulty. The only action open to the Washington government has been, initiated, though Mr. Elaine has pot yet sent an official note of the fact" ROME, April 15.—In the chamber of deputies Tuesday Sig. Malmuzi gave notice of his intention to ask the government what satisfaction had been asked for or obtained in the case of the Italians lynched in New Orleans. Sig. Luchini also gave notice that he would call attention to the action taken "by the government in this matter. SETTLERS ASK FOR HELP. White People In North Dakota Afraid of the Indians. GRAND FOKKS, N. D., April 15.—White settlers in the vicinity of Rolla and St. John, Rollette county, met Monday night and sent in a petition to the Indian bureau for a fort and a detail of soldiers at St. John. The settlers set forth that they have been bullied, their stock has been run off and a general sense of insecurity has been spread throughout that region by a band of 2,000 Indians and half-breeds camped in the Turtle mountains. Nine out of ten of these Indians are said to be British subjects, but every one of them is drawing rations from Uncle Sam. The settlers have begun arming themselves and declare that if the Indian bureau doesn't help them they will go on the tvar-path themselves. HARRISON'S LETTER. A NEW, PRESIDENT. It Settles the Question of the President's Position on Coinage. WASHINGTON, April 15. — President Harrison's letter to the Kansas City farmers' congress, in which he expresses decided views on the question of currency, has created almost as much discussion in Washington, as the opinion expressed "by ex-President Cleveland while congress was in session.

Post says in editorial that the president now stands on precisely the same platform as ex-President Cleveland. _• A Capital of 800,000,000.

PARIS, April 15.—Dispatches received here from Chili state that a desperate battle, resulting in a victor}' for the Chilian insurgent 'forces, has been fought at Copiapo (or San Francisco de Silva, as it is also known) the capital of the province of Atacama, on the river Copiapo, 30 miles from the sea. Only meager details of the battle are given in the dispatches mentioned, which say that the insurgents, after a long and determined struggle, defeated with heavy loss a force of 3.000 of President 3al- maceda's troops. The dispatches, which are supposed to originate from an insurgent source, add that the insurgent army is increasing steadily in strength, and that it intends shortly to march upon the capital, Santiago de Chili, as well as upon Valparaiso, the principal port of Chili. Copiapo, where the battle has just been fought, is an important mining and mercantile center, from which much silver and copper ores are shipped to Europe and elsewhere.
