she bought a bottle and to her delight

After Qen.Merritt'l arrival, with in?
structions from Washington, Aguinaldo
and his people wen refund friendly
r?cognition. The Filipinos then became
suspicions, and this suspicion was con?
firmed when our representatives at Paris
offered Spain twenty million dollars for
a "nuit claim lead" of our interest in
the Philippines. Of course. Aguinaldo
as well as lovers of liberty the world
over, was surprised to think that ihis
government, which had sacrificed hun?
dreds of thousands of lives and billions
of money for the liberation of the negro
slaveH, should now think ejf-bnying ten

Duriug the siege of Manila and for
some time after its capture our troops
and the Filipinos were on friendly

prohibiting the Filipinos from entering
Manila or crossing our lines. This
looked like pickings quarrel,and e^per.

agent, was in this city seeking an in?

was shot dead. This shot was answer?

The Washington, i> 0 , Btai
" iiie anti-Bry i both within
iiiv and among the Palmer and
Buckner people, are d ling i imi very
letive secret work, which has at last
attracted the attention of P.ryau's
friends. Their efforts aro ?kr present
centering around <; irmanas ? possible
candidate, but when the proper tune
oomes they are ready to turn from him
ie other if one can be found more
available for their purposes. There
has been some vague talk about (for?
man for aluig tune, but until recently
there have been no well-matured plans
resting definitely upon him as a candi?
date. Littlt by little the matter has
developed and here and then been re?
vealed, nntil the character of the work
being done has come to be pretty well
understood. The Brj m i.pie now
havi absolute control of the democratic
organizttion and all those who have
any authority are working in harmony
with the acknowledged aim of compell?
ing the party to again Dominate Bryan
and ie-enaot the Chicago platform.
Their control of the party machinery i
so'oomplete ami they .?re so alive to the
work before them that it is not e;wy to
conceive how they can be thwarted.
TO TAKK BRYAN 1TI8 BY 8UPRI8I'
Put that the anti-Bryan element hav
hopes of in?rese is evident from the at
tention Ihey are giving to the jrcrfc
Snob is th? condition of the party, th
s uind money men being at an addition
al disadvantage on account of so man,
of them having got CUtsidC the party
that their i Sorts have to he by indirec
tion ami under cover to a very groa
extent. Their plan contemplates tak
ing the Pryaii people by surprise at th'
last minute and securing the eiectioi
of a lot of delegates who are not ver;
well known, and whoso course at th
national convention is likely to be dif
ferent from what might bo expected, b;
the Bryan people. It is discovered
moreover, that in this plan they an
winning the sympathy and assistant
of some men prominent enough in thi
Bryan ranks in some localities to or
dinarily be beyond the suspicion ol
Bryan's friends. It is understood thai
they have nude some inroads upor
Bryan's forces both in the South ami
West, among men who, having always
been known as silver men, are never
theless dissatisfied that what thoy non?
ceivo to be a prospect of success at the
ne\t election should be sacrificed to a
sentiment and a single man. These
men are willing to assist to the extent
of oontriving to have delegates sent tc
the national convention from their re?
spective States uninstructed. There
will b^ a general fight all along the line
against instructing delegates, and it ia
counted on as reliable that practically
all uninstructed delegates will, when it
c nos to the rub, vote against both
Bryan and the Chicago platform. In
the South special efforts are being made
to secure uninstructed delegations from
(?eirgia and Alabama, and it is under?
stood that in both States these efforts
have the assistance of men of more than
ordinary influence in the party, and
powerful influences are at work.
