Havana Filipino Declaration as to the
New York, Dec. 21. A dispatch to
The World from Washington fays:
The Cuban delegation to the United
States has just prepared and sent to
Cuba an elaborate appeal in circular
form to be widely "distributed to all na
tives to remember that they fought for
Independence and not for annexation.
The manifesto reviews the struggle to
throw off Spain's tyranny and recounts
the glories of the victory and refers to
the action of congress in declaricg that
a stable government shall be estab
lished. The appeal reads in part: "Ifan
nexation were to be desired it would be
better to have brought about now than
later, and for that reason it is desired
that the question should be S3ttled final
ly at the preseot time. Yet it is suffi
ciently known that the Cubans mad-?
war and fought for independence, not
for annexation, and that all the precious
blood that has been shed and all the
hardships endured and all the suffering
were to gain independence, and nothing
rhort of that.
Only Paying an Ancient Debt.
"It is ridiculous to try to answer the
accusations that the Cuban people are
indolent; that they are uneducated, un
faithful, and unable to govern them
selves. Their industry, labor and en
ergy have made Cuba in many respects
one of the most productive countries of
the world. Their duty now is to stand
by the lone star banner, which signifies
independence and liberty, the greatest
blessings of heaven. Remember that
Cut. a has not fought and endured for a
change of masters, but that her people
may be of their own masters. We are
none the less grateful to the people of
the I'nlted States for their aid and sup
port, and in doirg what they have done
to free Cuba from Spain they have but
repaid the great debt which they owed
to humanity, justice, and the right for
the aid they received from Lafayette
and France during their war for inde
pendence." Gomes Receives Cnrt Treatment.
A special to The Herald from Havana
says: "It is known that Gomez feels
that he Is not treated properly. Indeed,
he has never received anything but curt
treatment from the representatives of
t the 'American government. Some time
- 5 go he sent a personal representative
to confer with the American evacuation
T commission. At the conclusion cf the
J conference General Butler proposed
! that a personal note of congratulations
be sent to Gomes, but General Wade
and Admiral Sampson refused to Join
him. A letter from Gomez has just
been received here. He was wise enough
not to commit himself further than to
say that he could not come to Havana
unless he came as the comamnder-in-chief
of the Cuban army of liberation,
and if the men who had fought with
him for three "years were not good
enough to come he preferred staying
CXBAXS AMENABLE TO REASON.
Agree to Postpone Their Jollification at
Havana to a Later Day.
Havana.. Dec. 31. The address of the
Junta Patrictica regarding the aban
donment of the proposed demonstra
tions was widely circulated yesterday.
It is as follows:
"To the People of Havana: In ac
cordance with the wishes of the Amer
ican authorities the directory of the
JuntaPatriotica. after consultation with
the main committee, has agreed to sus
pend the festivities planned to celebrate
the independence of the ilsand. In a
reasonable letter to the commission
charged with presenting the festival
programme, General Ludlow has indi
cated the desirability of suspending for
the present public demonstrations, ow
ing to a rumor that at the present mo
ment when the Cuban police are not
yet organized there might be some in
terruption of public order, in the pres
ervation of which all citizens, an) es
pecially all Cubans, are deeply inter
ested. "At the same time General Ludlow
declares that the American authorities
are in full sympathy with the joyous
feeling of the Cubans, and that when
the situation becomes more settled they
will take pleasure in promoting such
festivities as have been proposed, and
will even participate in them. But the
American authorities are convinced that
the present moment is not opportune
"In view of the fact that the consid
erations thus urged are quite in accord
with obvious good judgment, the rep
resentatives of the directory have de
termined to suspend the festivals ar
ranged for the coming week, which will
be carried out as soon as circumstances
permit. The directory regrets the exis
tence of such doubts and misgivings as
prevent the carrying out of the pro
gramme as projected, but they have
agreed to recommend to the Cubans to
co-operate in maintaining order during
the change of flags and in yie days fol
lowing, because they arc convinced that
the moderation and orderly behavior of
the Cuban people at these moments will
powerfully influence the future destiny
of our country."
Hong Kong. Dec. 31. The Filipino
junta here has replied to the report of
Commissioner Harden, who was sent
to the Pail pplnes by the government of
the United States to report upon the
conditions there prevailing. The junta
asked the Associated Press to publish
the following as "'revealing the true
situation and sentiment" in the Philip
pines: "We deny that Agulnaldj will
be satisfied if made & major general in
command of five native regiments and
that if this is done the national army
could be a termed and disbanded. We
repeat our appeal for an impartial in
quiry by an able commissioner and Im
plore the American people to refrain
from a hasty decision. The Filipino
government views with alarm Commis
sioner llarden's proposal to impose in
America a high protective tariff against
"Iloilo surrendered to tha national
army, which is the completion of the
occupation of the Island of Panay.
There is no truth in the reported estab
lishment of an opposition republic in
the Visayas. All the officials in the
Visayas hold Agulnaldo's commission.
The Filipinos are yearning for a peace
ful settlement of all questions. To their
brothers across the sea. the Filipinos
send greeting and earnest prayer that
with the new year will come a dawn of
a new era of peace, prosperity and
good fellowship with the free and bene
ficent reopie of the United States.
Though but an infant among nations,
yet are we strong if assured of the good
wiU of the great American nation."
