W"ashir.ton, Dec. SO. The war de
partment is expecting definite wojfd
from General Otis within the next twenty-four
hours as to what has occurred
at lloilo. Hy that time General Otis
will have heard from General Miller. In
command of the American force sent on
this expedition. The officials about the
war department do not appear to be
apprehensive over the results, and there
ls no evidence of tension or alarm, al
though It is recognized that the situa
tion at lioilo is one which may bring
about a sharp and possibly a. decisive
l&sue between the insurgents and the
United States forces. Up to the close
cf office hours yesterCay it was said at
the war department that nothing hai
teen received from General Otis bear
ing cn the military situation. All that
had come was a response to an earlier
dispatch conveying orders, the reply
giving assurance that definite news
could be conveyed within the next
In the Event of a Clash.
What General Miller will do as t j tak
ing possession of the city either with
force or without is not officially dis
closed, and indeed it is likely that con
siderable discretion is lodged with the
commanding officer as to what steps
should be taken. fSut in the event of a
clah between the United States forces
and the insurgents war department of
ficials say there could be no doubt as to
the outcome, as the Seventeenth in
fantry is tne cf the regular regiments
having a reputation for their fighting
ability. The American force numbers
about 2.500. as against an estimated
force of some 10.0U0 insurgents, but no
doubt is expressed as to the adequacy
of our force.
Filipino Occupation of lloilo.
Manila. Dec. 30. Details regarding
the occupation of lloilo by the insur
gents have just been received here. Th
American expedition, commanded by
Urigadier General Miller, arrived there
Wednesday and found that the Span
iards had evacuated the place Saturday
on the steamer Churnca and had been
transferred to the Island of Mindanao.
in accordance with an agreement ar
rived at with the insurgents. The lat
ter entered lloilo and occupied .the
trenches Monday at noon. They Imme
diately established a municipal gov
ernment arid piaeed guards over for
eign property. The Insurgents were
fairly quiet and orderly, although there
was some looting at night, hut the
shooting of five of the natives had an
exemplary effect upon the rest.
A new Filipino cabinet has be?n
formed, the personnel of which Is as
follows: President of the cabinet ar.d
minister of foreign affairs, Senor Ma-
binl: minister of war. Senor Luna: min
ister of the interior. Senor Araneta;
minister of agriculture and commerce.
Penor Buenramino; minister of public
works. SYnor Canon.
Filipinos Said To He Forbearing.
Ixndon. Dec, CO. A Correspondent of
The ciloba, writing frtifrl .Hor.g Kon?
Nov. jC. says: ; It will be a great mis
fort tmv ' if. through hasty' action . or
ignorance of the actual state cf affairs,
the Philippine natives rise against the
Americans. Hitherto, although the
Americans have often given great
nrovoeation. the Filipinos have shown
creat forbearance and a stror.ir dislike
to come to blows. They do not want to
fight, and if the Americans only meet
them halfway all will go well. There
is much to be gained by a just, states
manlike settlement with the natives,
while there will undoubtedly be great
losses through a continuance of ar
Have Keen Loyal to Uncle Sara.
"The just aspirations of the p-eople
ojght to be taken Into consideration, I
and I believe they would be if only the
proper men are sent out by the presi-
dent to settle the question of the future
government of the islands on the spot, i
after proper deliberation and careful
investigation. Such a commission would
discover that the Philippine leaders
have been loyal to the Americans. I
am informed that they refused to con
sider the overtures of Germany and
France for coaling stations. In each
case the reply was: 'We cannot settle
anything with you. The Americans
promised us independence, and we wish
to wait to see what the Americans wilt
do for us.' "
Cl HANS AT HAVANA REBEL.
Refuse To lie Ignored in the Surrender

Havana. Dec. "0. Cuban residents of
Havana declare that if General Brooke
does not rescind his order barring rep
resentatives of the Cuban insurgent
army from beirg present at the evacu
ation day ceremonies New Year's day
they will close their houses on that oc
casion, tear down their Hags and decor

vlew with General Brooke telegraphed ery member cf the city council was be

as he intended, as no courtesy could be
shown him. The Cubans are greatly ex
cited. "We have not fought fof a
change of masters. We have fought for
liberty, and not for a new ownership."
declared Juan Frederico Centallas. one !
cf the most prominent Cubans in Ha- '
vana. "Our army Is still in the field.
They shall not lay down their arms un
til we find out whether we are to be
slaves or free. If we must fight again.
then we are ready. We shall not en
dure the humiliations that ere belnr
heaped upon us. No nation ls strong
enough to bully US."
weclr.escay night a meeting ot tne
patriotic committee was held and yes
terday morning a deputation consisting
of Dr. Juan Ofarroo. Federico Mora,
Ar.gelo Cowley. Emilio Nunez and Al

I the district at the time.
' Gentral Ludiow. who was very po'.ite
, f) the deputation, asked them to leave
the programme with him. and promised
to give the matter careful considera
tion. After the deputation had with
drawn" toe 'conferred with Gen. Brooke
and it was decided that it would b
wise not to allow any public manifesta
tions on the part of the Cubans. Gen
eral Ludlow prepared a written reply,
pointing out the extreme need of main
taining order in the interests of the
people of Cuba, and the sympathy of
the Americans with the dtsire of the
Cubans to celebrate. He urged, how
ever, that while this feeling was per
fectly natural, there was the danger
of giving an opportunity to ill-dispospd
or thoughtless persons to make trouble,
which would harm the city's industrial
and commercial interests. On all these
grounds, concluded General Ludlow, it
tvas expedient that there should be no
general public display of feeling.
A joint meeting of the committees of
various Cuban societies was held yes
terday afternoon at the Irijoa theatre
to discuss the situation. The proceed
ings were private, but it was decided to
endeavor to prepare hastily a petition
to be signed by business firm in Ha
vana, requesting Gen-, rai Hrooke to al
low the demonstration. This feature of
the proceedings is the only one lnadcs
public. It is reported, however, that
most of those present advised that all
Cuban flags be taken down on Jan 1
and the day made a day of mourning,
the Cubans carefuliy keeping away
from the Americans. Ti:e minority, cn
the other hand, urgej that it would be
better to keep cool. t. trust the Amer
icans, and to wait ar.d see how their
policy would wcrk out.
Senor Perfcto la Cest. who presided
at the meeting, is sp.ld to have ex
pressed his views in this wise: "I am
satisfied that the Arr.eric ans do not un
derstand us. and their moral position
ls essentially weak. In. tead of saying
to us: 'Go ahead and have all the
pleasure you want in an innocent way.
and If you fight and destroy property
expect to be punished.' they suppress
the natural enthusiasm of our people.
forbidding free assemblage, free speech
in public, and all other methods of ex

emotions changed from pleasure at

prehension at the arrival of th? Amer

As to the Canned Itedf Supplied the Army
All Pronounced Hint.
Washineton. Dec. CO. The war inves
tigating commission held onlv a short
session, yesterday, devoted to executive
business. There wtre no witnesses,
ready for examination. The Swift Pack
ing company, of Chicago, which pro
tested against the statements in Gen.
Miles' testimony derogatory to its
canned fresh beef furnished his expe
ditions, has notified the commission of
its inability to be represented Jan. 4. 1
as expected, and Jan. ! has been set as"
the date' for the appearance, of its rep
resentative. . The commission made public a synop
Fis of the reports of officers to General
Miles "of the results obtained from the
use of canned fresh Leef. roast beef in
campaigns in Cuba and Porto Rico."
, These reports were submitted by Gen-
era! Miles when he gave his testimony
last week, and were presented in sub- '
stantiation of his vigorous denuncia-
tion of the canned bet f. The reports!
came from a number of colonels of reg- 1
Ular regiments and all declare the beef

Ont of T!i roe Hundred Accenting Free
Ili'ili Only Kite Hatl "Ihe Price."
A short time ago a curious test was
applied ut tho Londr.a Congregational
Union's Free Shelter For Homeless .Men
at Medland hall, iu tho ca.st of London.
The object of tho test was to ascertain
if tho 111011 were really as penniless as
they represented themselves to bo. The
free shelter is intended for men who
have net tho iourpenco necessary to pay
for a nigLt's lodging elsewhere, and one
night Kdward Wilson Crates, the shrewd
superintendent of tho philanthropic
work of tho union, announced that he
would givo sixpence to each man present
who could prove that he had some
money, but less thiiu fourpenco. A chuc
kling laugh passed over tho 200, that
being the maximum allowed iu tho hall.
"But how shall I know that you havo
less than fonrpence?" asked Air. Gates.
"Search us!" cried tho men.
"You really mean itr"
"Very well, but if any one objects let
him go to the gallery, and I guarantee
that ho shall uot bo turned away."
Only five of the 300 went up stairs,
and the others wero thoroughly search
ed Ly experienced men. Two hundred
and forty-nine had nothing, nno had a
1 farthing, 11 had a halfpenny, cue had
J turue farthings, 13 had a penny, two
bad a penny fartbmg, fonr had three
