until the Balling of the Gaelic, when he
will proceed to Manila and from Urn

Flllulno neonlo a scheme for the set

His scheme, he sais has been kept pro
foundly secret. It hag tne pcrsouul cu.
doisement of prominent stntejinei In
F.uropc and the upproval of American
public men, whose names It Is scarcely
necessary to specify. He will piomul
gate bis plan by cable to the newspa
pers of the United States and will sub
mit to the rul.ng Americans In tut
Philippines and tne leading suuirsnuit
among his own people.
To a llulletln reporter when pressed
for an outline of his terms of teltle
ment, Senor Lopez would onl) say that
If accepted, It will bring honor to both
sides and Independence to the Klllplno.
The plan contemplates absolute cessa
tion of war against the Aincileens and
a greater degree of nullvc represen
tation in government uffalrs than Is
allowed by the code drawn up by the
Toft commission. Loiiez Bays tho cap
tin e of Agnlnaldo amounted to noth

Lopez admitted to having had much
encouragement In his labors for Klll
plno Independence from Senator Hoar,
Mr. Atkinson and W. J. Ilrynn. In
Km ope, where he went at onco upon
the outbreak of the Agulnaldo Insur
lectlou, Senor Lopez, mingled unoffi
cially with statesmen In various capi
tals. He stated today that almost with
out exception, he was assured that the
American people would eventually
mete out Justice to his people along the
high lines of liberty prevailing nt
Lopez dreads being concerted Into a
mere American colony. Ho says tho
American war with Spain was an ac
cident of great detriment to his people
and tbo cause of liberty. Had the
Americans not Interfered tho armies
of the Filipinos would bac lung be

from the Islands and would now be cn

The steamer Souomn which arrived
here from San Franclaio lust evening
was delayed by the tardiness 'of the
English mnll. The train hearing It
from the Katt was dclaved by the
burning of the snow sheds lu the Sier

wharf at 10 o'clock on the morning of
the 22d and waited In the stream ten
hours for the mall to arrive.
On nrrlval In San Francisco the en

men except olflicrs nnd engineers as
toon ns she went alongside the wharf.

of It on leaving San Fratniscn in thu
matter of securing men to work

any one that happened to come along.
