WASHINGTON, March 1. Three cable
messages from General Otis were received
at the War Department to-day. One con
tained a long list of casualties among the
troops In the Philippines since the last re
port. A second announced the arrival at
Manila to-day of a government transport
from the east coast of Tababas province
with eight American and 410 Spanish sol
diers recently relieved from captivity
among the insurgents. The third message
stated that since the recent opening to
commerce of the Island ports 13,000 tons of
hemp and 70,000 bales of tobacco had been
received at Manila and that large ship
ments of the commodities named will soon
be made to the United States and other
The fact that General Otis has not re
ported any military operations since the
departure of General Bates's expedition to
southern Luzon to complete the plan of
opening the hemp ports In that quarter is
accepted by War Department officials as
an indication that the campaign Is pro
gressing satisfactorily and that our forces
have not met with any serious opposition
by the Insurgents in recent movements.
Secretary P.oot has made a positive denial
of the published report that he is worried
at the long silence of General Otis in re
gard to military operations In the Philip
pines and had cabled him to make an im
mediate report of the situation. The sec
retary said that on the contrary he was
perfectly satisfied with the situation.
The officials are confident that the back
bone of the Insurrection is broken and that
there wjll be no further hostilities on a
large scale, and that affairs in the archi
pelago will be In good phaye by the time of
the arrival of the Philippine civil commis
sion, about the middle of May, for the
rroposed transfer of governmental court
from the military to the civil authorities.
General Otis is expected to return to the
United States on leave of absence soon
after the arrival of the Philippine commis
sion. It Is desirable that he should meet
the commission and give It the benefit of
his knowledge of affairs In the Philippines.
General McArthur will assume temporary
command cf the military forces on the
Islands when General Otis leaves.

REPORT OF COMMISSION
PRELIMIXAItV SUMMARIZATION OF
THE INDUSTRIAL HEARINGS.
Recommendations in Restard to the
Trusts Change in the Status of
WASHINGTON, March 1. The Indus
trial Commission to-day submitted to Con
gress a preliminary report on trusts and
Industrial combinations, together with tes
timony, review of evidence, charts show
ing effect of prices, etc. The commission
makes the following recommendations,
based on such Information as it now has:
'Promoters and organizers of corpora
tions or Industrial combinations which
lcok to the public to purchase or deal in
their stocks or securities should be re
quired to furnish full details In regard to
their business, necessary for safe and In
telligent Investment. Any prospectus which
falls to give this Information, or which
gives false information, should be held
legally responsible. The nature of the busi
ness, together with the powers of the var
ious officers, should be expressed In the
certificate of Incorporation, which should
be open to inspection. The directors or
trustees should be required to report to the
members of such corporations its financial
condition In reasonable detail; to give
members access to records of directors'
meetings and to furnish them before an
nual meetings with lists of members, with
their addresses and their several holdings,
and to provide 1n whatever other ways
may be named in the certificate of Incor
poration means whereby the members may
prevent the misuse of their property by
directors or trustees."
It Is recommended that the larger cor
porations should be required to publish
annually a properly audited report, show
ing In reasonable detail their assets and
liabilities, with profits or loss; such report
and audit to be under oath and to be sub
ject to government Inspection. With re
gard to the Interstate-commerce Commis
sion, it is recommended that It be given
authority not only to prescribe the meth
ods of keeping accounts of the railroads,
and to demand reports in such detail as It
may require, but also to Inspect and audit
such accounts; that the decisions of the
commission be made operative at a day
fixed In the decisions, and to remain so
unless reversed by the United States
Courts on appeal; that the commission be
authorized to prescribe classifications of
freight articles, and to make rules and
regulations for freight transportation
throughout the United States, and that
penalties for violations of the Interstate
commerce act should be appropriate fines
against the carrier, and not Imprisonment
Commissioner Lorlmer states that he
concurs In all the recommendations, but
withholds his judgment on transporta
tion corporations until testimony now be
ing compiled by the commission is submit
ted to Congress with recommendations.
Commissioner Clarke concurs in ail rec
ommendations except that he believes
rates fixed by the Interstate-commerce
Commission should not go into effect In
case of appeal until affirmed by court, and
that trial on appeal should be expedited.

Explains Attitude of Ills Country
Towards The Ha?ne Conference
Fire in Cnnnon Factory.
BERLIN, March 1. During the debate In
the Reichstag to-day on the Foreign Office
estimates Herr Grandnauer, Social Demo
crat, requested to be informed as to the at
titude of the government in regard to The
Hague peace conference. The minister of
foreign affairs. Count Von Buclow, re
plied, saying: "Our alms are always di
rected towards peace and it will not be
broken by us. I can give no guarantee of
the action of others. Therefore, we must
be armed. We gladly participated In the
labors of the conference, but could not
agree to obligatory arbitration and can
only decide upon recourse to arbitration as
cases arise. In completing and perfecting
our armaments on land and sea our sole
object has been to protect our territory,
and well-concerned rights are Justified hos
tile attacks. We must take timely meas
ures of precaution against possible event
ualities." Count Von Buelow proceeded to explain
with great detail the attitude of Germany
toward The Hague conference, declaring
that Germany was "In perfect sympathy"
with the conference so long as nothing is
done to jeopardize public safety and tho
right of Germany to protect her own In
terests. "We could not." he continued,
"agree a priori and In a general way to
submit to arbitration questions affecting
our existence as a state. We could only ac
cept it in secondary matters and reserve
the right to decide whether specific cases
fell within the first or the second cate
gory. Compulsory arbitration fell through
cwlng to the various modifications of the
original proposals, which are thus deprived
of their danger. Therefore, there is no
cause to apprehend prejudice to any vital
German interests. Our powers are not only
uninjured by the conference, but they are
strengthened; and we have given proof,
that Germany never fails when there is a
question of humanity and peace."
The estimates were then adopted.
The German Meat Inspection mil.
BERLIN. March l.-Dr. Theodore Barth,
the Freisinnige leader, made the follow
ing statement to-day to the correspondent
of the Associated Press regarding the prob
able fate of the meat inspection bill:
"There is a majority in the Reichstag In
favoc of the present form of tho measure.
It depends wholly upon the government
whether the bill will pass in that form. I
am In doubt as to whether the government
is sufficiently informed concerning the seri
ous effect the pasge of the bill will have
in the United States and upon the trade re
lations between the two countries. I be
lieve the government will yield In this mat
ter, because the Agrarians control the de
feat or acceptance of important projected
legislation, notably the naval augmentation
Views similar to those expressed by Dt.
Barth are held generally among well-informed
members of the Reichstag.
. France Naval Policy.
PARIS, March lw In the Chamber of
Deputies to-day, while the naval estimates
were under consideration, M. Lockroy, for
mer minister of marine, made a notable
speech explaining his views regarding the

De Lanessan, minister of marine, in reply,
defended the construction of a number of
ironclads and announced that the construc
tion of submarine boats had . only been
"postponed until the type could be perfected.
He assured the Chamber that the works
now In course of construction at Bizerta
would guarantee its safety. In conclusion
M. De Lanessan called attention to the
bills already submitted by the government
to Parliament, asserting that these made

IDAHO MINING RIOTS
TESTIMONY TAKEN DV THE HOUSE
Farther Evidence In Rea-ard to the
So-Cnlled Bull Pen" A Xevrspaper
Man and a 'Squire .Testify
WASHINGTON, March 1. Wilbur Stew
art, the newspaper publisher at Mullan,
Ida., to-day continued his testimony be
fore the House committee on military af
fairs concerning the labor troubles in
Idaho. He said that on June 8 his news
paper plant was confiscated by two civilian
officials accompanied by a detachment of
soldiers, causing him considerable loss.
The witness said that throughout his de
tention he was given no trial except be
fore the "kangaroo court." He said this
was the name applied to an "inquisition"
carried on by a local .official not a magis
trate. He detailed a conversation with one
of the state officials in which the latter is
said to have asked Stewart to resume pub
lication of his paper "on the side of law
and order," threatening that If the publi
cation continued to be as it had been
Stewart might expect to remain in the
The witness testified as to the death of
one Johnson, a prisoner in the "bull pen."
He said Johnson was taken before the
"Inquisition" and an effort made to. learn
from him the names of those who partici
pated in the riots. When Johnson re
turned to the "pen" he expressed fears he
would be hung. He tried to kill himself
with Indian clubs and later while fleeing
from an imaginary foe he was shot
through the head and killed by a guard.
The witness said Johnson was mentally
sound before being put in the "pen" and
he was pronounced insane after being
there. Other prisoners, he said, were in
fear of being shot, and many thought the
place was to be set on lire. There were
about 350 prisoners and about 1,000 to 1,200
soldiers in the Couer d'Alene district. He
expressed the opinion that there had been
no occasion for declaring martial law.
Some of Mr. Lentz's Inquiries brought
Into question the accuracy of the report
of the testimony taken by the industrial
commission as to the Idaho trouble, but
this line of inquiry was ruled out on the
ground that the committee had no author
ity to Investigate the- industrial commis
On cross-examination Representative
Parker took the witness over the circum
stances on the day the mill was blown up.
Mr. Stewart said he saw large parties leave
Mullan and return later in the day. but
he did not know the purpose of the move
ments. Several members of the commit
tee questioned the witness as to the de
parture of miners on the day of the dyna
miting of the mill. He said the party
numbered from 170 to 200. The mining pop
ulation of Mullan was about 350. When
the parties returned they refused to say
where they had been. .He saw one man
carrying a shotgun, but none of them wore
At the afternoon session Edward Flan
agan, a justice of the peace at Mullen,
related his experience, lie said he had
nothing to do with the riots or the blow
ing up of the mills; that he was arrested
without warrant and held in the "bull
pen" for eighty-seven days. .Here, he
testified, the treatment was brutal and In
human, and the food was not fit to eat.
He also gave with much detail Instances of
alleged cruelty. At one time the prisoners
who refused to do degrading work were
ranged In a "standing line" and the guards
were ordered to shoot any one who stepped
out of his tracks. At another time a pris
oner who did not move quickly was threat
ened by an officer with being hung up by
the thumbs over night. The man was re
moved, but witness did not know whether
the punishment was inflicted.
Chairman Hull asked a question handed
him by Captain Edwards who was present,
as to whether the order to go on "stand
ing line" was not because the' men re
fused to fill in a tunnel they had excava
ted for means of escape. The - witness
understood such a tunnel had been dis
covered, but did not know it was the
occasion for the order. Mr. Hull asked if
soldiers who disobeyed orders were not
treated the same as the prisoners had been
treated. The witness answered that being
citizens, the prisoners were not subject
to the same discipline as the soldiers. He
said the "standing line" was maintained
only one day. x
The committee then adjourned "until to
morrow. ENTOMBED MINERS.

circuits In order to permit the linemen to
work on the wires wiui safety. The cable

tact with live wires. Several persons were
severely shocked and more or less Injured.
