Copy of telegram handed to the Second Assistant Secretary of State by the Chilean minister at Washington.
Elections took place on the 29th with perfect order and liberty, senators, representatives, and municipales. Complete triumph for the Liberal party. Twenty provinces, with sixty-five departments, support the Government. Thirty senators and ninety representatives elected. Tarapacá and Antofagasta should have elected two senators and four representatives. There was no election. Rebels have not had elements enough even to disturb elections, which took place without the slightest disorder in all the country.
