THE WASHINGTON VIEW.
Washington, Jan. 23 ?Secretary Alger
this afternoon said that while he would
be pleased to hear that the Filipinos
had liberated the Spanish prisoners held
by them, he had no official Informa?
tion to confirm this statement to that
effect coming from Madrid.
_It Is not to be supposed for a mo
nient that the Spanish government, no
matter how desirous of securing the
release of the prisoners more speedily
than could be accomplished through
the effort of the United States Gov?
ernment, will enter Into an alliance
with the Insurgents. Technically the
war is still in progress, although active
hostilities are suspended, and any con?
duct on the part of the Spanish govern?
ment that would tend to Increase tho
difficulties of the United States In deal?
ing with the Insurgents would have to
be reckoned for.
NOT MOVED BT THREAT.
The officials hero are not moved by
the reported threat of a Filipino junta
-In-Europe--to? av I: In!raw Agoncllio and?
his fellows from Washington if they
are not splendidly recognized officially.
While Agoncllio has been well treated
informally, he has not been recognized
by the Government, and It may be
stated positively that he will not bo.
The Filipino representatives here axe
nt prepared at this time to state when
their efforts to Obtain recognition for
the Aguinaldo government are to ceaso.
This is a question they say which will
depend entirely on circumstances that
nvay develop as a result of their at?
tempts to be diplomatically received
