M'Hl'KMAX A REMARKABLE MAS'.
"1 thanked (?en. (>tis for his graci?
ous reception and hastened toask Presl
dent Schruman for more ample mfor
mation, Mr. Bohruman, 1 am happy
to have Ihe occaalou of saying, is ?
veiy remarkable man, of high intelli?
gence and of profound erudition. No?
body could be more worthy of the mis
aion, which has been intrusted to him.
I'nhappilly, I believe be is pou
10 iibfain satisfactory re-ult- Later "it
1 will tell you why. 'Why,' I said to
him, 'has not America established In
the Philippine! the protectorate aysten
like that which France has Ins!
?n Tunis and Annum ? It II in sub
a disguised annexation, and
would give absolute satisfaction At
Une time this s ?lutinn would ?.?f>
gu ird the pride of the Filipinos who
fjv.,i autonomy. 'It is Impossible,'
replied Mr. Schruman, 'and I will tell
you Hie reason why. At Tunis there
is a Bey and In Annum an Kmperor
and your protectorate is exercised ovai
a stable government. H-rre there ia
nothing of the kind. We are in the
presenoe of regular anarchy, and you
?aimot establish a protectorate
government which does not exist.'
AORER1. <>N ONK POINT.
"'But,' I aaked, 'in default of a
protectorate will you accord to the Fil?
ipino? the aame regime as exists be?
tween (Junada and Great Britain?that
ia to say a aurt of autonomy, with the
recognition of American sovereignty':''
"' Yea,' auawered Mr. Schumi ?n,uf
ter c moment'a reflection; 'I do not
see, ao far aa I am concerned, any ob?
jection to the establiahment of such a
system. Besldea, it ia outlined in the
last proclamation which we addreased
t i the Filipino?. In the first place, we
iusist that the sovereignty of the Uni?
ted Statea be accepted and recognized.
On that point the American people will
never give way. But, after that, we
are quite disposed toward an under?
standing with the inhabitants of these
islands over which our Hag floats '
"Then Mr. Schurman put some ques?
tions to me He notably asked me why
public opinion in France appeared to
be aomewh&t hoatile toward the United
8tatea. 'Thia hostility,' I exchimed,
' ia in no way general. It is evident
that that reactionaries and the clericals
of France would feel more sympathetic
toward Spain, monarchical and Catho?
lic, bat we Republicans have pot ceased
to hope for your triumph. Only, at
the present time, we fear to aee Ameri?
can democraoy dragged into the wan
deringa of jingoiam and of extreme
militariam, and we see there a new
danger for universal peace. ' Mr
Schurman then said with a great deal
of firmness : ' Yon are wrong to be
alarmed. The United Statea ia too
much attached to liberty to become a
military nation in the apecial senae
whioh yon attach to the term in France.
The people would never tolerate it. Of
thia you can be assnred. '
AGUINALDO HAS TOO MANY OKNKRALS
"After his comforting aasurance, I
left Mr. Schurman. It remained for
me to aee Admiral Dewey. I had a
very great deaire to know the man who
enjoys anch popularity in America,and
whose audacious action at Cavit? hue
been very mnch admired in France.

AQAIN8T THK CAPITALISTS.
" I will cite, for example, Luna
who for a long time frequented tht
?ocialiata'ciaba 'if Kurope, Santlko,
vsh'i at one time had influence amons.
certain socialist committees of America
and the poet, Paterno, who is an on
thueiaetic socialist. Also, rest wi ?1
asiured, the movement is directed much
more against tbe capitalists, to what?
ever nation thoy belong, than agaiust
the Americans. Regarding the declara
ti i,-, of Torres, there are two impor?
tant observations which I ask perini?
?don to present immediately. The first
is that, as a matter of fact, the Philip?
pine committee with which Mr. Schur
man is treating, has DO real authority
and is in no way an emanation from
the rebels as a whole. The result is,
as I have already said, that Mr. Schur
man, iu spite of his good will seems
powerless to obtain serious results
Were he to find a resolution of the sit
uatiou with the Philippine committee
it would afterward be necessary to have
it accepted by Aguinaldo and his troop?,
aud everything would have to be done
over again. The second observation is
the importance which should be at?
tached to this entry upon the stage of
socialism in the Philippines. It ex?
plains the dissensions which exist
among the Filipinos, and naturally
will result in the Americans finding,
before the conclusions of peace, serious
support among the better classes. '
"I afterward had interviews succes?
sively with several influential Filipinos
notably with Gregorio Aranero, the
First Minister of Justice of the govern?
ment of Aguinaldo. They all confirm
the statements of Torres. Araneto,
much more than Torres, showed him?
self irritated at the polioyof thel'oited
States toward the Filipino*.
NOT RECOONIZ?I) AT PAR!-?.
" 'What principally seemed monstrous
to me,' he said, 'is that at the time of
the treaty of Paris we were not permit?
ted to take part in the conferences
which decided our fate, and yet we are
not a negligible quantity, and it has
been too much forgotten that it waa ua
and not the American? who vanquished
the Spaniards hen '

Whatever married meu m;iy think o

Ulnb, of Alameda, Oal. , a suburb o
San Francisco, enj ys the distinctioi
of glorying in the escape of its member
from the marital state and devotes it
self to the work t f warning deludet
young men of the dangers of math
mony. "We have been there onr

members as a beuevoleut association, t
sort of life-saving service,and it claims
that it has already done effective work
in rescuing a number of men who were
in imminent danger. In the words oi
the secretary : "Our club is doing a
gr'iat deal of good in preventing men
from allowing their love to get the bet?
ter of their judgment. Several men
who thought of getting married have
been saved by our missionaries, and we
intend to posh the good work along. "
The women who have been divoroed
from the members of the club oould
probably ?ay something on their side
abent "sad and harrowing experiences. "
They were doubtless as glad to be freed
from the bonds of matrimony as their
husbands, and may have had even bet?
ter cause for wishing their freedom.
But they do not appear to have formed
a club to denounce marriage or to pro?
claim the evils of wedlock. They, no
doubt, realize that their experience has j
been exceptional, and do not feel that
they should attempt to prevent other
people from being happy because they
have missed happiness themfelve?.
