No. 129.
Mr. Roberts to Mr. Bayard.

No. 162.

Sir: The Anglo-Chilian Tribunal adjourned sine die, England having accepted $100,000 gold in liquidation of the twenty-one claims submitted for diplomatic action.

As near as I can make out, the amount of claims liquidated by the $100,000 is about $6,000,000. The Italian-Chilian Tribunal heard arguments in a few cases, but as yet has rendered no decisions.

The French claims stand as heretofore advised. I think the French Government will accept the offer made by Chili.

The Spanish minister awaits the dissolution of the tribunals before presenting the claims of Spanish citizens.

I am, etc.,

William R. Roberts.
