Representatives of Chilean fruit importers, who recently threatened to leave the Port of Philadelphia for another East Coast port, have formed a joint venture that could keep fruit cargoes coming here for the next 18 years. The joint venture - between Transreefer Inc., for the Chilean importers, and Lavino Shipping Co. - creates a new company, Seagate Inc., to lease Piers 82 and 84 on the Delaware River. The docks contain storage areas and a $2 million refrigerated warehouse. The piers, which had been leased to a Lavino subsidiary, Delaware Operating Co. (DOC)

Two brothers indicted in Missouri last month in the collapse of Hill Financial Savings Association, the Montgomery County thrift that was one of the nation's biggest savings-and-loan failures, have been captured in Chile, the U.S. Attorney's Office said yesterday. Alan and Harold Lieberman were captured June 3 in Santiago, the capital of the South American country, where they had rented an apartment under a false name, according to the statement from U.S. Attorney Stephen B. Higgins of the Eastern District of Missouri and U.S. Attorney Michael M. Baylson.

A crowd of 1,000 mourners chanting slogans against Chile's military government marched through Santiago slums yesterday to bury the first of at least six people killed in anti-government protests, witnesses said. Riot police kept careful watch on the march from a distance along the 2.5- mile route to the cemetery, but apart from some minor stone-throwing incidents, there was no trouble. Elsewhere in the capital, normal activity resumed as Chileans who observed the general strike Wednesday and Thursday returned to their jobs.

As a member of Congress who voted against the North American Free Trade Agreement, I believe that a free-trade agreement with Chile is a whole different situation that deserves strong support. I opposed NAFTA because I believe that the Mexican government artificially suppresses workers' wages. Greater productivity should be tied to higher wages to spread the benefits of free trade throughout Mexican society. This suppression of wages jeopardizes jobs in our country by enticing U.S. companies to relocate to take advantage of lower wages.

Philadelphia dockworkers, in an effort to keep Chilean fruit shippers from moving their business to other ports, have proposed a plan under which they would guarantee to unload perishable fruit during any future strike. During a four-day strike in December, a number of Chilean ships were either delayed in the Delaware River or diverted to other ports so they could be unloaded before the cargo rotted. Chilean shippers and growers, who have been heavily wooed by other ports, have said they would give serious consideration to moving out of Philadelphia if they are not assured that fruit cargoes would be unloaded here during any future strike.

Anyone who underestimates the value of free elections should look at the results of Wednesday's startling referendum in Chile, where dictatorship was voted out. The vote provides a culmination to more than a decade of transition in Latin American countries from military to civilian rule. Chile, along with hapless Paraguay, has been the South American holdout bucking the tide. Chile's story has also had a special poignancy, since its democratic traditions had once been the firmest in South America and its subsequent history of human rights violations among the most brutal.

SAN JOSE MINE, Chile - With remarkable speed - and flawless execution - miner after miner climbed into a cramped cage deep beneath the Chilean earth, was hoisted through 2,000 feet of rock and saw precious sunlight yesterday after the longest underground entrapment in human history. All 33 men were out shortly after 9 last night. After 69 days underground, including two weeks during which they were feared dead, the miners emerged to the cheers of exuberant Chileans and before the eyes of a transfixed globe.

"Whose side is Helms on?" The Inquirer wrote in an Aug. 5 editorial, in reference to Sen. Jesse Helms (R., N.C.), concerning what would seem, at first glance, to be a case of The Inquirer's becoming born-again intelligence-leak critic. Specifically, The Inquirer is all bent out of shape because Mr. Helms allegedly leaked to the Chileans word that the CIA was engaged in spying on Chile as part of a State Department attempt to destabilize the pro-Western regime of Augusto Pinochet.

Sen. Jesse Helms has made a career of wrapping himself in the American flag, which proves as much as anything that you can't tell a book by its cover. His brand of patriotism is twisted and mean-spirited. And though he has managed to fool some of his constituents in North Carolina, his act has worn exceedingly thin in Washington. Mr. Helms' latest indiscretion was a junket to Chile, where he embraced President Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship, denouncing in the process the U.S. ambassador and the Reagan administration's nudges toward, horrors!

An official report containing 35,000 testimonials of alleged political imprisonment or torture during Chile's long right-wing dictatorship caused a stir this week when President Ricardo Lagos received it, the first government-sponsored recounting. Lagos said his country could bear the soul-searching that is likely to be sparked by testimony from thousands of Chileans who say they were tortured during Gen. Augusto Pinochet's 17-year rule. Human-rights groups criticized Lagos for not making the findings public immediately.

The Union seem impressed with their latest trialist, but whether they sign the 22-year-old Chilean free agent, Santiago Dittborn, remains to be seen. Dittborn, an attacking midfielder with a strong left foot - something the Union, or any team, could surely use - has earned six caps with the Chilean senior national team and is with the Union all week. "It is only three days he has been with us and it is still early but he has been impressive," Union coach Jim Curtin said of Dittborn.

At home in Chile, Michelle Bachelet - that nation's president, elected to her second term in a landslide vote in 2013 - works a tough balancing act. Her Pacific nation is home to robust capitalists - mine owners, winemakers, fruit growers whose Southern Hemisphere seasons enable them to supply Americans in winter - and militant communist and anarchist groups, which press hard, and often successfully, for taxing the rich to pay for college tuition, retirement...

A dehydrated and exhausted Jesús Pérez felt the cramp in his leg and fell to the desert floor. But the University of Pennsylvania junior rose, got medical help, and kept running, finishing what amounted to almost a full marathon. Then he woke up the next day and did it all over again - and four more times after that. In all, Pérez ran 136 miles in six days in the Atacama Desert in Chile, known as the driest place on Earth. It was the equivalent of more than five full marathons for a teen who had never run one before.

Three months after his mission to South America, Gov. Corbett on Wednesday inaugurated a trade office at the Chilean Consulate of Greater Philadelphia that officials hope will help attract more traffic through the Delaware River ports. A Chilean trade delegation on a three-day visit to Pennsylvania is also exploring energy and manufacturing opportunities, according to the governor's office. The Chilean consulate, one of more than two dozen foreign missions in Philadelphia, is located in the Bourse at Independence Mall on Fifth Street.

Gov. Corbett and senior agricultural officials from Chile gathered at Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in South Philadelphia on Tuesday to mark what they say is a growing Chilean and South American fruit trade to Philadelphia. On a pier behind them, the Bahia Castillo, a refrigerated cargo ship, was unloading fresh Chilean fruit. About 10,000 pounds of the grapes, kiwis, apples, and pears were donated to Philabundance, the hunger relief group, which took the fruit by truck to area food pantries.

SANTIAGO, Chile - Manzana! Manzana! ("Apple! Apple!") This was the sudden hue and cry in the Santiago airport when I arrived in Chile this summer, semi-delirious after traveling about 18 hours with a big fat Fuji in my purse that I had forgotten to eat. This violated every international law against agricultural imports, and all at once there were several officers, many documents, and much stamping of same until I was finally released without a...

Buzz : I read it right on the label of the wine my buddy brought over last night. It said "Chile. " My gut can't handle spicy stuff the way it used to, so I didn't open it. Marnie: Oh. No need to worry. That's not "chile wine"; it's wine from Chile in South America. Buzz: Red wine from South America?

PAGING Ed Snider . . . Ed Snider please report to PPL Park. On a day of FIFA international fixtures, Ghana took on Chile last night in an exhibition match at PPL Park. In a steady downpour, Ghana put on a first-half show en route to taking a surprising lead into the break. Richard Mpong scored off a crisp through-ball from Sulley Muntari in the 42nd minute, quieting the pro-Chilean crowd and sending the Ghanaian contingent, which featured a handful of dignitaries, into a frenzy.
