commended by I local financiers as
a more reasonable proposition
than tbo San Francisco operators
presented in the matter of the

It is tbo opinion of somo close
observers that tho San Francisco
brokers have simply, for tho timo

island sugar investments. This is
given as the reason for thoir in
ability to tako timely advantago
of tho proffor of tho controlling

garded as a good thing to have
thoir securities placed before

limited. Hawaii, moreover, will

tho masses controlling tho robot
lion because, ho oxplainod, the
Filipinos at Manila aro mostly
domostics and clerks who havo no
definito opinions and tho wire
pullers outside of tho city have
undoubtedly intercepted it.
Continuing, the Spanish banker
said that if tho proclamation had
boon issued on May 2 or ovon
in August of last year, tho result
would havo been different, as, in
hiB opinion, based on twenty
years' oxperionoe, tho only argu
ment which appeals to tbo masses
hore is tho gun.
Tho editor of Oceania thinks the
proclamation is tho most nolitio
document ever published in tho
Philippine Islands and that it is
bound to convinco tbo wavering of
tho folly of further hostilities.
