Wahlugtou, Feb. 0. At the clow of
tho Cabinet meeting today it was an
nounced that tho Picsldcnt had ap
pointed Judge William H. Taft of Cin
cinnati to be President of the new
Philippine Commission. Judgu Tatt Is
United States Judge, or tho Sixth Judi
cial Circuit. His pine eon the bench
will bo Illicit by the appointment of
Judge Henry V. Severans of Grand
The appointment of Judge Taft
marks tho first selection for tho now
Phlllppino Commission. There will be
live members on the Commission and
nil of them will bo civilians. Mr.
Schurmaun, President of tho existing
Commission, has declined fc iuBiness
reasons to lemalu on the Commission,
so Judge Taft will be President in his
plute. .Mr. Denny and 1'iofessor Wor
cester hae been Invited to accept ap
pointments, but so far hne not signi
fied their Intentions. Admiral Dewey
will not go ii.ick to Manila and General
Otis will give way. like him. to a civil
ian. As Miine Mil pi isu has been i-aut-cd by
the willingness of Judge Tuft to sur
render a life position of the dignit)
and emolument of a I'lilled States Cir
cuit Judge to poln the ot'mmlKslon, It
ma) be said that the prevalent Impres
sion Is that as soon as the Commission
shall have succeeded In replacing the
existing military government In the
Philippines with a .stable civil xuvcru
ment Judge Taft will be named as the
Hist clll Governor Gcneial of the ar

Washington, Feb. 7. Tho Senate
Committee on Foreign Relations met
today to consider tho Nicaragua Canal
tieaty. Tho discussion was animated.
While some opposition was manifested,
it was not of such a diameter as to In
dicate tho defeat of the tieaty; but that
It would be amended there seems t'j
be little doubt.
One of the amendments proposed Is
that the v.holo of the Cluyton-Iitilwcr
treaty bliai. be abrogated. It Is said by
members of the Committee favoring
this change thut theie Is no need of
keeping alive any portion of the old
Another change suggested is ill le
gard to the protection of tho canal.
The treaty declares there shall be no
foitltlcations and It is said this will
prevent tho United States from elect
ing batteries which aro by some con
sidered absolutely necessary In view
of the Insurrections that occur from
timo to time In South American 101111
tiles. It is possiblo that this language
will bo modified so that such protec
tion as tho United States deems neces
sary will be afforded along tho route
of tho canal.
Ncaily tho entire time of tho com
mittee was consumed in listening to
an elaborate statement from Senator
Morgan, who Is thoroughly familiar
with tho subject of tho Nicaragua ca
nal proposition and all treaties affect
ing It. There was Httlo or no expres
sion of opinion from other Senators
savo thut It was a very Important sub
ject nnd would need careful considera
tion. 408 Dciitlm n Ouy.
