VAIN CHILIAN ATTEMPT TO SAVE LIVES.
A Chilian gentleman, writing to a friend at Southampton, regarding the naval action n the Pacific, says:-
“All Chilians have been very much upset by the result of the recent battle. The Germans rendered no assistance to the two English ship, Good Hope and Monmouth, and their crews perished mercilessly: The gave the excuse of bad weather and adark night. When the Chilian authorities knew the fact, it was too late; and the ship they sent to cross the spot found no trace of the boats and their crews.”
